This morning as I was taking the trash out to the trash receptacle, I saw something run out from underneath it. What was that! As I walked past the wall of the enclosure, there on the curb sat a little chipmunk! I started walking toward him thinking he would surely run away, but no, he still sat there. Ok, what message do you have for me today? I looked up the symbolism of the chipmunk and here is a portion of what I read:
Presley Love shares the symbolic meaning of Chipmunk: “Chipmunk spirit animal is a symbol that something good is on it’s way to you, something wonderful that delights your heart something that makes you smile and laugh”.
Chipmunk totem energy is also a sign that you will have an important conversation with someone close to you very soon, pay attention to the details! Chipmunk always pops up out of nowhere, and just as quickly it vanishes into another world, the world of the Chipmunk… it has hidden pathways and secret tunnels hidden in plain sight all around you. Chipmunk power animal loves the enjoyment of a good adventure and exploration, he is always exploring and noticing any new changes in his environment… a new fallen leaf, a new pebble, or a new visitor. Chipmunk will chatter to whomever is nearby telling them everything about the new discovery.
Well I could sure use some of that! It always amazes me when Spirit sends the right message at the right time (you would think I would be use to that by now lol). Well bring on the delight!
Sometimes you just have to laugh at how Spirit gets your attention! I went out to the parking lot to move my car closer to the door for when I leave work tonight and as I was about to get into my car about six or seven squirrels ran down the tree diagonal from my car and appeared to be running toward me. I quickly got in the car and closed the door. I started laughing when I realized they were at play! They looked like a group of children BEing let out for recess! Okay Spirit, message received. I have been far too serious lately (and that is so not like me). Time to have some fun!
This past week has been a blur. The exhaustion I have experienced the past week has been such that I remember some of the interactions I have had in the physical with others and some I do not. It was if I was there, but not there. A participant and observer at the same time. I would describe the feelings at time as BEing very floaty (if that even makes sense). I have had to take naps in the evenings before bedtime, and then go off to bed later in the evening and sleep as though I did not have a nap a few hours before. I know there has been several major accelerations energetically this past week , there were times that I felt I could hardly keep up.
Last Wednesday as I was driving into my development, there sitting on the brick wall of the enclosure where the recycle bins are located was a huge turkey buzzard! I literally slammed on my brakes, backed up and parked and sat in my car so I could have a closer look. It seemed as though we made eye contact and once we did he took flight! In all of the years I have lived in my development I have never seen a turkey buzzard visit that area! Saturday night as I was on my way home well after 10:00 p.m. on a road that is not well traveled at night, as I turned a bend in the road, there in the middle of the road was a fox! He had no inclination to move, so I drove around him. Between the turkey buzzard and the fox (death and rebirth, adaptability) Spirit is leaving all kinds of clues.
I have been dealing with some fears that were BEing brought to the surface last week. For several days I was feeling major anxiety. As I contemplated all of this on a mental level, these feelings were front and center. All I could do was allow myself to feel what was coming up to BE felt and released. On Saturday, once I made the decision that whatever was going to happen with what I was dealing with, I would still BE safe and okay. As soon as I surrendered to what I was experiencing, a calmness settled over me.
I was able to have some quiet time to myself before I had dinner with my son on Mother’s Day and as I was laying still I heard the words “all must BE released”. This seemed to put everything I had been experiencing into perspective.
I remain in flow.
Yesterday was an odd day for lack of a better word. As I was leaving the house to go to work I heard a cat meow. I turned around and there was a black cat a few feet away just sitting there staring at me. She meowed again. I had the feeling she was communicating with me. She started walking toward me. I told her unfortunately I did not have time at that moment to stay and talk to her, so I got in the car and left. Later on in the afternoon my son sent me a text saying there was a black cat sitting on our air conditioner (the part that was outside our house). He said in the text when he went to go in the house, the cat tried to go in with him. I looked up the symbolism of a black cat and found this sentence that resonated deeply with me:
Black cats are a symbol of the soul’s mysterious coming to earthly life. Their impenetrable color represents the enigma of the spirit’s return voyage to the physical world. The cat in itself is a powerful symbol of wholeness and unity, a joining of the spiritual with the tangible. Color it black and you get a lot more compelling symbolism.
This speaks very deeply to what I feel is happening at this time for me.
Once I arrived at work, for most of the morning I was feeling quite detached from things. It was what I guess could BE described as feeling neutral. By afternoon that feeling was gone, to BE replaced by a feeling of wanting to move forward but not quite knowing what action to take.
In the middle of the night I woke up needing to write down some notes pertaining to some steps to take, the energy behind it feeling very much like forward momentum. The picture in my mind was of wind blowing open a doorway.
Today there is a feeling of excitement, such a difference from yesterday. Something has definitely shifted.
A couple of days ago I was taking a nap on my couch. When I opened my eyes I saw a spider crawling on the pillow in front of me. I blinked and the spider was gone. Oh, I was still in the in-between state. Last night, I was again waking up from a nap and on my ceiling was another spider building a large web. Once again, I was still in the in-between state so once I blinked the vision was gone. Then the words the web of life popped in my mind. There is a book by Fritjof Capra with this title. I did not know this until I was doing some research last night. Here is a brief description:
In The Web of Life, Capra takes yet another giant step, setting forth a new scientific language to describe interrelationships and interdependence of psychological, biological, physical, social, and cultural phenomena–the “web of life.” During the past twenty-five years, scientists have challenged conventional views of evolution and the organization of living systems and have developed new theories with revolutionary philosophical and social implications. Fritjof Capra has been at the forefront of this revolution. In The Web of Life, Capra offers a brilliant synthesis of such recent scientific breakthroughs as the theory of complexity, Gaia theory, chaos theory, and other explanations of the properties of organisms, social systems, and ecosystems. Capra’s surprising findings stand in stark contrast to accepted paradigms of mechanism and Darwinism and provide an extraordinary new foundation for ecological policies that will allow us to build and sustain communities without diminishing the opportunities for future generations.
This is not the first time I have been visited by spiders. Since I became consciously aware of my journey they have visited me via visions quite often. They have been different sizes as well as colors (red, black, white, turquoise, yellow). I believe it is one of my power animals. Spiders represent the weavers of life for me. This our BEing weaved together in my life as well as the bigger picture that is happening in the NOW moment. The funny thing is I recently purchased a ring of a spider sitting on its web. Loving the synchronicities! The below meaning resonates for me at this time:
The spider is a remarkable figure of feminine energy and creativity in the spirit animal kingdom. Spiders are characterized by the skilled weaving of intricate webs and patience in awaiting their prey. By affinity with the spider spirit animal, you may have qualities of high receptivity and creativity. Having the spider as a power animal or totem helps you tune into life’s ebbs and flows and ingeniously weave every step of your destiny.
The fact that this has come to me at the time of the full moon/lunar eclipse is not lost to me. I AM in the ebb and flow of life and I AM incredibly excited for all the change that is taking place. The weaving together of the spiritual and the physical. So much BEing reflected from the inner to the outer world.
