Spirit visit 

It was right after I got up this morning and while passing by the dining room table that I noticed movement in the backyard. I moved closer to the window to see what had caught my attention, and found myself face to face with a Hawk. The magnificent animal was sitting within a short distance on a branch, staring at me and watching my every move. His eyes were focused on me with an intense clarity, a crystal clear vision that was burning itself right into my soul. I couldn’t deny that his presence demanded respect, as I stood frozen in time. It wasn’t the first time that I was paid a visit from the Hawk spirit and there have been a few other times. This encounter was different though and within a very close proximity. All I could do is stand there, be still and stare. We observed each other in silence, experiencing a moment in time that brought special meaning to me. I was mesmerized, as if transported to a place far away. All noise was drowned as I listened to the silence and anything could have been possible during those moments. Any minute now, Mr. Hawk would begin to speak to me and bring a message vital to my journey. I remained somewhere else, a movie snippet, a scene from a science fiction where the Hawk came to visit a human as a messenger, perhaps medieval times when the hawk vision was scoping out the land from high above to see what others couldn’t. I was stuck in a fairytale, a segment of my life with dramatic music playing in the background that was getting louder and had escaped the silence. What was the message behind this unusual encounter? Was he here to raise my awareness of things I couldn’t see? Redirect my focus and make me pause in my path to reconsider? The timing was definitely extraordinary and made sense, but with much else in life there always remains an element of not knowing for sure. And so it was no different, and I couldn’t be sure about the meaning of this visit until further research. It depends much on our own beliefs, if we see them as visits and signs from the spirit world or if you dismiss them to coincidence. I can’t tell you why and how I know, but for me they are signs and messages from the divine.

Researching the presence of the Hawk, I learned that when a Hawk comes to visit, you might have the inclination of using the powers of intuition and vision in your daily life. The Hawk provides the wisdom of seeing situations from a higher perspective through increased observation, allowing you to focus on the task at hand. The Hawk is a messenger from the spirit world and a great companion to develop spiritual awareness. He will guide you to the power of focus through a clear vision and to take the lead when the timing is right.

With all things transpired, it just makes sense and I believe in the messages these beautiful spirits bring. Especially when seen in unusual and extraordinary circumstances such as this one.

What do you think, do you believe in Spirit Animals? Coincidence? I think not….


Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋
