On this clear, cool, beautiful fall morning, listening to and watching the birds forage for a morning snack. A pair of cardinals honor me with their presence.
Cardinals often bring a big message, one that most of us need to hear, myself included. A message of balance. Balance in our masculine and feminine parts, no matter what sex we are. Balance in work and play. Balance in responsibilities.
Being balanced is one of cardinals greater strengths. Both make and female share the role of incubating the eggs, which is unusual in the bird kingdom. They are always near their mate. And the female sings just as beautifully as her male counterpart. Again unusual.
The cardinals song also reminds us to listen closely. To listen for the messages from spirit in the ordinary moments; for that is where the magic is.
The cardinal stays year round, in it’s home. Reminding us to be flexible, steady and grounded during times of change. As the seasons change, so do we. Cardinal reminds us to sway with the winds of change, like a deeply rooted tree; stay balanced, and listen to the song of spirit.
What an amazing creation we are a part of! So grateful for Pacha Mama for all the splendor she gives us! And to the creator for being so creative! Now off to listen a little more deeply.
