The osprey reminds us that things aren’t always better on the side. It’s human nature to imagine other people have it better. A fellow co-worker commented to me that the best part of taking a vacation is anticipating it because it is never as good as we imagine it might be. Not sure, if I agree, but it reminds us to enjoy the now.
The osprey dives into pools of water and emerges with its dinner. Often, it sees and hears movement when most see nothing. If an osprey is your totem then you have the ability to pull out what you need. The stamina to go after what you want.
Because the osprey depends on fish for its survival, it’s more closely tied to the environment than other birds. Run-off, oil spill, and water pollution influence the bird. Ospreys are very aware of environmental challenges, especially in waterways.
The sighting of this bird reminds us the importance of timing. With osprey as your totem, you’ll have impeccable timing.
Occasionally, the osprey shows to remind us when things are difficult we can survive even if it means putting our head figuratively under water.
The osprey can be a shy creature most times flying away when people get to near. It’s his way of reminding people to keep their distance. It can also serve as a reminder to respect both human and nature’s personal boundaries.
The sun plays a very important part in the osprey’s life. If the bird has shown up in your life, do not discount the healing ability of the sun in your life.
The appearance of this waterfowl is a reminder to stay alert. Something important is coming your way.
The appearance of this fishing hawk is a reminder to hone our skills on practices that may have grown stagnant over time.
