Hawk – Powerful Spirit

I had a special visitor the other day and a Hawk came to visit. Actually is was two Hawks and I briefly mentioned it here. Together, they were sitting on a wooden post in my backyard as I stepped out onto the patio. One flew away, but the other remained for quite some time, watching me carefully sit down on the stairs. This wasn’t the first time and I had previous visits from the Hawk in the past, I knew right away that this was a special moment and another message that was due being delivered.

My dear Fairy Sister Roda recently sent me a pocket guide to Spirit Animals from Dr. Steven Farmer. Thank you, xo 🦋💙. God knows I’m a bookworm and how I love my books, she knew just which one could add additional joy to my collection that is ever growing. I was curious of what the book had to say and I’m fascinated with the timing of how these events often unfold. I could easily miss it if I was a sceptic, but I don’t think that it is coincidence that the book arrives and within hours a spirit animals appears in the most unusual settings. I guess it comes down to “Believe or not believe”. You know where I fall and here are the words of Dr. Steven Farmer and what the Hawk visit might mean.

You’re caught up in too many details, so step back so you can get a greater perspective on the situation.

Stay alert and focused on the task before you, eliminating as many distractions as possible.

Spend some time observing and studying the situation, and when it’s time for action, make it quick and decisive.

Pay close attention to your surroundings, as you’re about to receive an important message.

Be aware of any personal or psychic attacks, and be prepared to defend yourself.

Stop trying to change others or the situation, and work instead of accepting things as they are.

Sometimes the messages are surprising and may not always make sense. Sometimes they make you pause and drive awareness, as they bring to the forefront the subconscious of the things you might not be aware of. In a way, I believe that is the very purpose and meaning of it all together. Perhaps it was the last part of the message that brought the biggest eye opener for me. There are several examples that I’m surrounding with that the empath in me feels and absorbs the energy of these situations. I can’t deny feeling the pain and the struggles of some people dear to me, and without a doubt I would gladly wave my hands and wipe it all away if I could. I have to step back and realize that no matter how tough the lessons, they are part of their journey, a part of being stretched to grow into their higher selfs, and that those moments are necessary in the process.

It was also the first part of the messages that spoke to me, and it easy to get lost in planning all the details of my future and what is to come. It’s huge and overwhelming and the overall picture can easily discourage. Today I remember that sometimes we just need break things down. A journey of a million steps, starts with one single step and no matter if you can move at the speed of a leopard or a snail, eventually you will reach your goal as long as you keep moving.


We are the co-creators of our life and the time is now. More than ever are we needed to support Mother Earth and each other. Together we discover and explore our unique gifts in times of strengths, in times we lean on each other, and in times when we learn from each other. This blog started as an outlet and what I ultimately called my “Warriors Journey.” It was a way to document the ups and downs of my life, sharing my hardships as well as my successes. It showcased the struggles, but more important the ways of how to overcome them. Although we are warriors each and every day, I realized that having to be a warrior, comes from a place of pain. I decided to rename this blog, and “Phoenix Rising” now stands for the story of overcoming such a painful place. My motivation for this blog hasn’t changed and I hope to share inspiration and hope, to create a sense of belonging, a space of being heard, and connecting with like minded beings who instill a sense of oneness. We are never alone, and we are unstoppable in the pursuit of what sets our soul on fire. Who I am in a nutshell... 
I am an energy healer and Reiki Master. I am surviving a chronic disease that I’ve sent into remission three times since my initial bout, 15 years ago. I continuously challenge the status quo and by doing so I change my stars. I am a believer that anything is possible. I am a hopeless romantic and I believe that true love exists on various levels. I am an optimist that will always see the glass as half full. I am a dreamer, believing in endless possibilities. Not even the sky is the limit. I have jumped off of the hamster wheel, and I am writing a new chapter. I am chasing my Nirvana to support my most authentic self. This is my story, I am that Phoenix and I am rising from the ashes. Namaste 🙏🏼💙🦋

  1. Great shots, Rhapsody! I had 8 tenets that I try to follow, with mixed success.
    1) Be true to yourself no matter what
    2) You can only be treated how you allow yourself to be treated
    3) Always have a forgivable vice, because people don’t trust perfection
    4) Always say what you want up front
    5) Give in when it costs you nothing
    6) Seek and find a person who can be your philosophical GPS
    7) If several signs point to something, that is what you should be moving towards
    8) If several signs point away from something, do not move away! Stay where you are and let it move away from you

  2. I agree with you, that nothing happens by coincidences. There are meanings to everything, even if we can’t see these right now. We learn by growing, if we allow ourselves to do this.
    Great photos and post, Rhapsody 🙂

  3. Those are great suggestions. Did Roda send you the book? If so, how sweet of her!! Btw I’m saving this image. It spoke to me and I tried to make it about you and Roda, but then the more I typed the more it reminded me of something I’m going through with one of my best friends. Stay tuned 😉

  4. When I look at the overall picture I know that one day it will make sense and I will be happy of my path… I know that some special moments are “announced” (oh my! I would have some very very strange stories to tell here…), and the first times it happened I just didn’t “recognise” or wanted to admit the “signs” (always been the most skeptic person in the world…)… and I know that fighting just means I am punching myself… just sometimes looks like even accepting is not “fine” and need to find another way…
    Thank you for these words… you make me fathom in my unknown… 🤗🤗

    1. I’d be glad to listen if you ever feel like talking. I probably wouldn’t think of them as strange at all. You know that timing is everything and we have to be ready to see, otherwise things pass unnoticed. Be patient my dear.

      1. Oh so very true!!!
        Through years I ran into people and situations and sometimes despite constant efforts it just went wrong. You know, those little things that listed one after the other just keep you from reaching your goal… I am still learning to be careful about the signs… and my inner voice that tells me to not care or to keep going… it’s almost always right…
        One day we shall meet! With a nice cup of tea and lots of stories to tell!
