I take meditation walks daily...sometimes listening to soft music and/or nature sounds on my zen stone or not. Today I was and I was just looking around and drinking in the nature. I looked down at the road for a few moments and prayed, expressing my gratitude for the beauty and asking for help to hear and be more aware. When I concluded my prayer, I looked up and a beautiful eagle was circling overhead. I stood transfixed by his majesty. I watched him until he flew off and then resumed my walk.

Some 10 minutes later I looked down at the road again, again praying and thanking God and asking to be more aware of my ego when it crops up. I looked up, and there is the eagle again! Needless to say I was amazed and breathless. He circled once and flew off. I resumed my walk...but was barely aware of anything at this point other than a haze of bliss around me.

After a few more minutes I had emerged from the haze and prayed again, this time just thanking God. I expressed that I was overwhelmed by the majesty and grace and Presence. I finished my prayer, turned a corner and was suddenly drawn to a robin, sitting on the ground. It was not eating, just sitting there. I wondered at first if it was sick or hurt, but I took a step toward it and it took off. At that moment I was distracted by a large shadow that passed by my feet. I looked up and the eagle was back...only this time it was just above the tree height (about the height of a 3 story building) and he circled 3 times directly above me. Needless to say, I finished my walk in tears.

Then I came home and looked up the Eagle totem. This is from http://www.sayahda.com/cyc2.html:

The eagle is a sacred messenger, carrying our prayers to the Creator and returning with gifts and visions for the people. If Eagle has blessed you with its presence in some way, you are being given potent gifts of clarity and vision to use for the good of all people helping to bring forth the light out of the darkness. Eagle also serves as a reminder to those with this totem to communicate with Great Spirit daily so the gifts Eagle offers you can be utilized fully.

I edited some info out of the quote for brevity.

Not a bad walk, huh?

That moment of awareness, that special feeling, those moments of awe and beauty, are moments of great understanding & wisdom. I have had a few of these as well and they are moments that i shall never forget, they have become a stepping stone to further awareness. {Cosmic Awareness}

There was a time of sadness and sorrow, my mothers boyfriend had passed, we all cried, as i mourned i knew he was still with us, i felt his presence that first night i was standing in the front yard, i felt an energy and i have never felt, i felt so connected {i am feeling electricity running through my body at this very moment} during this experience i had an awareness that was far more than i have ever experienced, the leaves of the trees glistened like tiny crystals, i could feel the wind flow through my bare skin, entering and leaving my body. I felt as if i was surrounded in Energy that was so Pure and so Divine in everything,

every blade of grass
every tree
every star in the sky
The moon......

This was an experience i shall never forget, as yours above tiger.

Many Blessings
