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.

Your inner network, your “clan” is actually your advisory board. You learn the most from the examples and patterns of the people you spend your time with. It is as simple as monkey see, monkey do.
It is so important to choose your friends and associates carefully. They have a great impact on you, your beliefs and values and your actions. Be aware and make conscious choices to choose your advisory board. Make sure they truly support and encourage your greatness and are examples of proper principles.
Allow the right circumstances, people, opportunities to develop and present themselves. When you are not sure what to do, usually the best action is non-action until you are clear on how and when to move forward.
It is amazing how a good friend or adviser can inspire you with their wisdom and belief in you at a key moment. Friends are one of God’s greatest gifts because they only want your best and their love and support is unconditional.

I regularly read metaphysical and uplifting books for inspiration, growth and healing. Two of my favorite authors are Florence Scovel Shinn and Catherine Ponder. Their writing is transformational and fun to read. Here is powerful information from The Power of The Spoken Word.
“You combine with what you notice (Law of Focused Attention) so do not describe anything destructive for you begin to combine with it.
What is really yours? The blessings you bring to yourself, through your spoken or silent word; the things you see with your inner eye. Only your doubts, fears and resentments keep your good from you. If you hate or resent a person or situation, you have fastened it to you, for you attract what you fear or dislike. For example; someone has been unjust to you and you are filled with wrath and resentment. You cannot forgive that person. Time rolls on and another person does the same thing. It is because you have a picture of injustice engraved in your subconscious. History will repeat itself until you think you are cursed with misfortune and injustice. There is only one way to neutralize it. Be absolutely undisturbed by injustice and send good-will to all concerned. You will be amazed at the working of the law.
“MY GOOD-WILL IS A STRONG TOWER ROUND ABOUT ME. I NOW TRANSMUTE ALL ENEMIES INTO FRIENDS, ALL INHARMONY INTO HARMONY, ALL INJUSTICE INTO JUSTICE, ALL LACK INTO ABUNDANCE.”
Do not look back and hash over hard times, or you will be drawn back into these conditions. Give thanks for the dawn of a new day. You must be immune to all discouragement and adverse appearances.”
Your words have great power so use them wisely.
