Hasn’t it been an amazing roller coaster ride of emotions lately? With the coming of spring, it stirs so much in us. Renewal, rebirth and growth. A purging of the old to allow new things to come in. Not to mention that there was a full moon last night to really mess with the emotions! Yesterday morning I had the amazing experience of drinking my coffee and watching our mountain ash tree absolutely covered in robins in the backyard. It was purely magical and I knew that there was a wonderful message that these birds were trying to share with me. I know that they represent spring, but I also knew that I was supposed to search for the deeper meaning. This is what I found on the internet, and it truly touched my heart. May it help to bring meaning and clarification for each of you.
“The Robin Redbreast
The robin redbreast is a bird of Spring, a time of new growth and new beginnings. It flies into our lives on the winds of change asking us to weed our personal gardens and plant new seeds for our future. Rebirth and renewal require changes in all areas of life that have become stagnant and outdated. The robin redbreast teaches us how to make these changes with joy in our hearts. Its song is a happy one reminding us to let go of our personal drama and learn to laugh with life. If this medicine is underdeveloped those with this totem are continually challenged by the prospects of change. Difficulties arise and emotional discord can surface. Learning how to release our attachments to the old is one of the life lessons the redbreast helps us master.
The red coloring of the robins chest is linked to the kundalini. This life force lives coiled up within the base of the spine. When sufficient spiritual growth has been attained it uncoils, rising up the spine to create heightened awareness. This process enhances psychic vision which leads us into enlightenment. Those with this medicine are dedicated spiritual seekers. Growth can be slow and arduous. With patience, compassion and proper focus spiritual ideals are achieved.
Robins lay powder blue eggs. This is the color associated with the throat chakra. It is also linked to heavenly inspiration. Because the throat chakra’s main function is to express the will of Great Spirit and the egg is symbolic of new life, this helpful little totem teaches us how to assert the creative will of Great Spirit in all we do. It leads us into new beginnings without fear by restoring faith within our hearts.”
Wishing one and all a wonderful spring full of love, light, laughter and enlightenment.
