What had I been thinking about when I spotted the eagle? I was a little down that I had lost everything I’d typed the day before. The eagle reminded me to look at the big picture. I may have lost 3,000 words, but there was a time I lost an entire book. The words lost could be made up in less than a day. The eagle can pick out what’s important from its superior height.
Anyone who has ever watch the movie, The Hobbit or even read the book knows the eagles swoop in to save the day during the final battle. They represent action, protection, authority, and even guardianship.
The eagle prefers its nest high away from everything else. This demonstrates both freedom and dominance. Its high perch allow it see how around the nest, not allowing any sneaky egg stealers to attack. Its vision is acute causing it to drop out of the sky like a rock when it spots prey.
The eagle is a raptor and like most raptors grabs opportunities. An eagle’s appearance reminds us to take our time and evaluate a situation before rushing into it. The eagle often holds itself aloof because it knows you don’t need to be loud, obnoxious, or in someone’s face to make an impression. Its very stillness endows it with grandeur that few birds possess.
If you’ve ever had the opportunity to watch an eagle hunt, you’ll notice it focuses on the target, makes up his mind, then goes for it. This is a great way to reach your own goals. Decide what you want. Believe you can achieve it. Go all out to get it. (The eagle doesn’t stop in mid-dive and second guess its technique.)
The eagle shows up when we face challenges. Its a reminder is not to quit and to know we can overcome. It can also be a reminder to dive deep into our spirituality.
