Description When the Sacred Waterbird, Blue Heron, comes me it teaches a lesson of self-reflection.Heron medicine teaches us about the power of knowing ourselves so that we can discover our gifts and face our challenges. We learn to accept all of our feelings and opinions and not to deny the emotions and thoughts that go with them. Blue Heron encourages us to follow our intuition and to take the empowering journey into self-realization.Blue Heron comes to us encouraging us to dive into the world of our feelings and to look for our truth. If we only look at ourselves in a negative frame we never understand our true potential or recognize the opportunities that come our way. We don't want to get stuck in the notion of self-importance. We should not think of ourselves as having little or no worth nor should we wallow in self-pity. Heron says to reflect on your feelings and get to know ourselves intimately to find our true calling.The Sacred Waterbird tells us not to blame others or point a negative finger at the situations of life. This majestic bird says to claim responsibility for our own actions and to face the enemy within us all. We need to find a balance to our inner truths, work on our inner weaknesses, and develop our strengths to know our own spiritual essence.This takes courage to make this journey because it isn't easy to look at ourselves in an honest way.We can find wonderful healing for our souls, truly allow ourselves to make our dreams come true, and live our lives to their greatest potential if we listen the the messages.~ Mitakuye Oyasin ~ We are all relatedThis morning was a day of ambivalence, a morning unsure of my self and worth, unsure of life at all. Confusion meant I needed solitude, solitude and inner contemplative moments were granted me at the Rondout Reservoir, as I sat in the mist of a dreary day and spoke with the Heron, my totem for many years now. Life is good, I am filled with gratitude for the day and for a visit with the Great Blue.
