Two weeks ago my wife went to visit her parents for the week.¬† After running some errands in the afternoon, I came home and found these two ducks in the front courtyard close to our front door.¬† They had a sweet feeling to them and the next thing I knew I was giving them some fresh water and bird food.¬† They seemed content and stayed for a few hours continually eating, drinking, cleaning their feathers and resting, and then repeating the cycle in¬†varying order.
It was quite an extraordinary experience.¬† There were so many intimate and breathtaking moments of being with these special spirits.¬† It was rich with life and sharing.¬† The ducks could feel my sincere welcome and they accepted my invitation for the rest of the afternoon until sundown.¬† They let me hang out just a few feet away from them on the front porch as they ate or rested for more than four hours.
And so it came to pass, they came back¬†to visit me every day between one¬†and three times a day.¬† They would gracefully waddle under our front gate and up towards the front door for me to come out and¬†greet them.¬† Then I would give them some water and food and they would stay for at least an hour and sometimes as much as 9 hours¬†a day.
It is incredible how comfortable they feel being here and how comfortable I feel being here with them too.¬† After a few days I gave them names, Grace and Galahad, which by the way they both agreed to and accepted happily…..quack quack.¬† Grace is so beautiful and graceful and Galahad is her protector, always watching over her and making sure she is safe and secure.
My wife, Denise is a animal lover and told me how special this is for these two ducks to trust me during mating season.¬† Denise suggested I¬†look up ducks in¬†her book¬†Animal Speak, The Spiritual & Magical Powers of Creatures Great & Small by Ted Andrews.
“KEYNOTE: Emotional Comfort and Protection. Water is necessary for all life on earth.¬† Nothing can live without it.¬† Ducks can remind us to drink of the waters of life as well as to nurture our own emotional natures.¬† Ducks have a great ability to show affection and they are very community oriented.¬† They will also return to wherever they feel safe and comfortable.¬† Ducks can sometimes remind us to return to those parts of ourself or those activities that we feel safe and comfortable in as well.”
I was going through a powerful health and spiritual cleansing at the time my wife had to go care for her parents.¬†¬†I¬†went through¬†four intense days of detox, release and renewal¬†and the universe sent these two sweet ducks to comfort and protect me (at first I¬† thought I was taking care of them)¬† The universe always supports you.¬† Thankfully I recognized a special opportunity when I saw these ducks in our courtyard and did my best to be appropriate.¬† Their “quack quack” was actually a wake up call for me.
On Saturday, Denise came home in the afternoon and Grace & Galahad mysteriously did not come visit.¬† It was as if they knew¬†my honey¬†was coming home and we needed some alone time.¬† Sure enough on Sunday, they¬†came back and found a surprise.¬† Denise bought a large plastic tub to fill up with water so the ducks could take a bath and swim.¬† Little did we know¬†how much fun Grace would have.¬† She is in and out of¬†the pool frequently to eat and then goes back in to¬†bathe and clean her feathers.¬† Watching her go to town in the water heals our hearts.
The universe sends special friends, spirits and angels to you so pay attention.
