Welcome February! Second month of the year, second month with endless possibilities. New energy is stepping forward for us and this time Giraffe Spirit is daring us to see the big picture. The background work has been done. The minor details have been put into place. All you need to do is respond to the call and this is your time.
Giraffes stretch upward to reach the treetops and look down from a high vantage point. Haven’t you looked in on yourself quite frequently lately? It is as if you have become an observer, not only to your surroundings and what is going on, but also to yourself and your own actions. When giraffe spirit appears, it is a sign to keep observing from a higher view. In all aspects of your life, it’s time to stretch your neck out and broaden your view, open your eyes to what others need or are experiencing, and see the big picture you fit into. No matter how great your wisdom, knowledge, or experience, you don’t want to overlook the details and connections that will help you better understand yourself and your circumstances, so stretch yourself. Look beyond what catches your attention at eye level and know that not everything is as obvious as you might like it to be. There is still some work left to be done and you are now equipped with the tools to mange these opportunities. Spirit will bestow upon you a new perspective that might make all the difference.
Protection message: Are you sticking your neck out too far, reaching too high instead of looking around you to see conditions on the ground? Your devotion to co-creating something new is admirable, but Giraffe spirit is showing up to remind you that you have to look at the top of the tree. Perspective is necessary now, that means checking in with what is going on around you and at your feet. Or perhaps you are ruminating over the worries of the world instead of paying attention to what you can do right now, where you are, to bring about the changes you would like to see. Align with your highest good, and that while perspective is important, transformation begins where you are. Do not get so far up in the clouds thinking about all the big problems that you lose perspective and forget to do your part, however small it may be, to start enacting change – for transformation begins with you.
Again, balance seems to be a major message for us this month. we have to evaluate where we see ourselves. We have placed piece after piece into our picture, but are we still too focused on the individual pieces that we can’t see the whole picture. Do we need to step back for a moment and take a look. Reevaluate from a higher view. Or has our head been in the clouds too high that we don’t realize what is going on at ground level? There is no right or wrong, only awareness and changing course as we see it fit for ourselves. We have come so far and may this message reassure your path and celebrate everything you have achieved so far. Happy February, my friends. Namaste…
