Cardinal Knowledge

I have long been aware of the messengers that come in all forms, including those of the animal world. At just the right time, in the midst of life inquiry, they have shown up.  Winged, finned, scaled, furred…it matters not. Often when coming home from work in the twilight, what I call a ‘runny babbit’ (bunny rabbit:) has scooted across my lawn. The other day, two mourning doves were perched atop my roof. Adam (my son) remarked, “Oh, that’s Grandmom and Grandpop coming to visit us.”  Of course, there are the butterflies that flit across my path when thoughts of my Mom come to mind. My sister Jan told me recently that in the midst of a ‘missing Mom moment’, a winged wonder crossed her path. She felt uplifted and then it meandered off.  As I am writing this at o’dark thirty (actually 5:13 a.m.), I can hear the call of the mourning doves..maybe they are saying “What the heck are you doing up?  Go back to sleep, woman!”  Soon, I tell them…gotta get these words out while the Muse is speaking.

Last week, as I was getting into my friend Ondreah’s car, I noticed a small, white folded piece of paper with the image of a bright red plumed cardinal. Hmm…never got a message from one of them before. I put it in my purse and then when I got home, looked up the meaning.  According to

www.linsdomain.com

“Cardinal reminds us that no matter what time of the day or year it is,
there is always the opportunity to recognize
the importance of our life purpose. 

If a Cardinal appears, it is time to pay attention
to your health and well-being. 
It is also a time to listen to the feminine side,
the aspects of creativity and intuition. 
Cardinal people are in tune to the number 12. 
Twelve months or a year’s time is very important
to a Cardinal totem person. 
They remind us to add “color” to our life and to remember that
everything you do is important.”

Such a timely message for me (you too?) as I am coming to so strongly reinforce my life purpose. What am I here for?  To love, serve and remember, are the words that come to mind. Remember what?  That I am and you are, love incarnate and all we need do is shine it out. To allow that precious essence to overcome the fear and self limiting thoughts that plague us. To begin anew when in the midst of stuckness and stagnation. To focus on gratitude for what we do have, rather than pouting over what we don’t have. To bless each person and experience that comes our way. To see each challenge as opportunity to stretch and grow ourselves up. To honor where we came from, so that we sink our roots in, even as we spread our wings~

Why have you come to Earth?
