Each week I draw a medicine card to set the tone for the week ahead and practice leading with the intuitive side of my brain. It makes for a fantastic companion to the left-brain planning I also do each week.
Like Brother Eagle, Hawk flies up where Great Spirit resides. This makes Hawk a powerful messenger of the gods, akin to Mercury, the wing-footed Roman messenger.
Hawk medicine teaches us that life is always sending us signals. These can be messages of inspiration or feedback on how your actions are landing in the world.
As we learn to observe the nuances of power lurking nearby, we are imbued with the power to overcome and uplift difficult situations.
The board vision of Hawk takes everything in, and the piercing sound of Hawk's call pierces the state of unawareness. It's a call to be aware, or possibly to beware!
Hawk is signaling us to heighten our awareness so we can receive the messages of Spirit.
This week, I drew the Hawk card in the Contrary, or upside down position. This give us a little more details on how Hawk Medicine may be going sideways as it shows up in our life.
Hawk reversed signals to us that we may have shut down our own powers of observation and intuition because something in our life has become too painful to feel or too unbearable to perceive.
When we allow our emotions to override our perceptions, the messages that Hawk brings us from Spirit cannot pierce the chaos and confusion.
Emotions themselves are signals, often leading us to important information. Trust that you can observe your emotions from a neutral center and interpret them intuitively and clearly.
Hawk, Messenger of the sky,
Circle my dreams and teach me
the message as we fly.
