Sun-LIGHT Blessings ~ Heron
Over the past few weeks I’ve sighted this wondrous bird, and twice within three days. They do like to be around the pond at the back of my condo complex, however, they are rarely seen.
One day while walking around the pond, there was a giant shadow that fell, and I looked up to see two herons flying in the sky. Wow…it was majestic. They are said to only be in pairs during mating season and to both tend to the nest for the young. Otherwise, they are quite solitary birds, and I saw one in a shallow part of the pond just standing there as I walked by. That area has a hill and some tall grasses in the pond, so you don’t really even see that corner until you come around the hill. It was slightly startling to see it just there, so close.
The messages and blessings of these birds are many, and seem rather appropriate to me at this time, and may to you, as well. What struck me is the solitude of the bird most of the year. I have definitely been in solitude for most of the past few months. This bird symbolizes soul-searching, which I have been doing a lot of with all the time on my hands. It includes meditation, observation and introspection. I can check all three of these! You?
Heron also symbolizes patience (and don’t we all need this right now?!), virtue and honor (both which we all could cultivate more of and live in this manner). Virtues like trust, integrity, morals, ethics, courage, compassion, respect, grace, humility, kindness, authenticity and gratitude, all are needed to be strengthened to bring us together in Unity. Divided we fall.
Finally, I love that this bird also symbolizes prosperity. Prosperity is about a flourishing endeavor, a thriving condition, good fortune and success. Prosperity is abundance in all areas of life, particularly the areas we all hope for good fortune, like finances. But it also relates to other areas like health, creativity, clients, love and more.
May we ALL find these blessings! ??? ~ Heather
