When the Eagle flies high! — suzanne-mcrae.com

When the Eagle flies high!

Have you ever felt on top of the world, the kind of feeling you get when you know you are soaring high in the sky like an eagle?

It’s a feeling that I’ve been familiar with lately and it feels awesome to be flying this high. I’ve personally been able to get to that place often, but more often than not I haven’t been able to stay there for very long periods of time. Not because it doesn’t feel good to be there, but because I too easily tend to get stuck in my repetitive thoughts, spiralling thoughts that sometimes like to carry a negative energy of it’s own. It brings an energy with it that destroys instead of helping to carry me high like that of the eagle.

When I seriously declared to myself recently that I wanted to improve on many levels, this gave the green light to the Universe to bring me the lessons that I need to learn. And this is what I’d like to share with you now.

I have felt stuck for so long that I started thinking it might never get better. But I also never gave up even though I felt so discouraged. I knew that God would want things to get better for me. Surely He was on my side I thought. After all He doesn’t make us suffer, we do that very well to ourselves so I knew that it couldn’t get worse unless I allowed it to. During those difficult times, I chose to continue putting one foot in front of the other every day and somehow had enough faith and trust that it would change. Often my ego, my negative thoughts would twist things so backwards that very little made any sense to me anymore. I would feel lost and start believing my ego’s words, that little voice in my head. And I don’t know about your ego, but mine is not very pleasant.

Prayer and Reiki have certainly helped me stay focused on my destination. I have dreamed for a long time of being in that place of higher consciousness and bringing more of that into my daily life but somehow I wasn’t doing as great of a job at it as I wanted to.

I’m a firm believer that we are the co-creators of our lives. So that led me to believe that since I knew all of this that my life should have looked like that of a bed of roses. But instead my personal experience has been one of pain on many levels from physical pains to emotional pains and even spiritual pains for so long. Somehow these pains have become who I am today, all inter-woven together creating the reality of who I am on each individual day.

The more I felt pain, the tighter I hung onto the reality that my ego and negative thoughts had created, and my unwillingness to surrender or change or even to admit to myself that I was stuck in a pile of yucky energy. I was stuck in a place that was no fun. I refused to admit these faults to myself. I wanted to see myself in a different and much brighter Light but there was a shadow cast around the one I was seeing. So who was I trying to fool? I couldn’t get out of what seemed invisible, yet that destructive pattern that I had created for myself could be felt travelling through all dimensions of my being. I could not escape it.

I always wondered what might help me get unstuck? Or better yet, I thought who could get this energy unstuck for me? I could pay someone to do it for me… none of that worked, I tried. I wasn’t ready to take responsibility for my creation of misery that I was feeling on so many levels. Over time I quickly realized that it wasn’t anyone in particular or anything else that would do this dirty work for me. I was looking at the person who could do it and that was no one else but me.

The time has arrived for me to roll up my sleeves and face what I have created and start peeling away layer-by-layer what I don’t like about my reality, then take action and change it.

What brought me here to this realization and understanding is a combination of different things. I’m not very proud to be seeing what I have created over time and it’s especially difficult to open up and be vulnerable enough to want to share this with the rest of the world. I’m now getting busy scrubbing down my walls, getting the dirt off and adding a fresh coat of paint. I’m picking a Lighter and much Brighter colour this time around.

I love that I associate how I’m feeling with that of an eagle and better yet I love what the eagle symbolizes…

“The eagle represents great power and balance, dignity and grace, a connection with higher truths, and an intuitive and creative spirit achieved through knowledge and wisdom.”

I’ve come to realize that my soul needs me to soar like an eagle every moment of every day. It needs me to become more conscious of my thoughts and release the ones when they don’t align with my vision of who I truly am. I am ready to go to that place of higher truths, greater power and to live in this knowledge and wisdom that I know resides deep within me.

I’m discovering the meaning of who I truly am. And I couldn’t ask for a greater gift than to be able to navigate my way through the layers of my many dimensions, the many fabrics inter-woven tightly together, and the thoughts that created the me that I am today. Now my focus switches to one of releasing anything that is less than who I truly am. I feel so blessed and fortunate to be giving myself this gift of learning and discovering about who I am. To be able to let go finally of what has felt like darkness and shadow that had been cast over my soul. I know there’s a shining Light waiting to be discovered within me… and I believe this to be true for all of humanity. I say let’s all go and have fun, and give ourselves the gift of letting go and discovering who we truly are. I invite you to join me on this journey.

Ask yourself what energy are you carrying around with you? Is that energy really helping you create the life you want for yourself or is it destroying your beautiful soul and your dreams? What colours are your walls? Are you flying high like an eagle? What do you want your soul to experience in this lifetime?

Find what works for you… become more conscious… find ways to make changes… and decide to fly like an eagle.

Blessings to you for reading about my  journey, wishing you much peace, love and wisdom in your life. May your walls of life shine brightly. xo

  1. Beautifully said and so inspiring. Thanks!

  2. Beautiful post. I can feel your light from over here. I don’t think I can really say that I’ve ever flown like an eagle. I am trying to remember a time when I experienced that exhilaration. It’s either been so long that I don’t remember it, or it never really occurred for me. You are right. Our unwillingness to surrender is usually what keeps us from soaring. I might have to remember that when I’m feeling low like a caterpillar.

    • Thank you Gabriella for your beautiful words. It takes a lot of practice, and it seems that I’m just starting to fly and what an awesome place to be in. It will take conscious work on my behalf. But I feel more ready than ever to commit and follow through.

  3. WoW!!! Thank you for sharing..You are an inspiration of live… Love you lots…xoxoxoxo

  4. Remember the song, ‘Fly Like an Eagle’ by the Steve Miller Band? Well, after reading this post, Suzanne, I probably won’t get it out of my head for the rest of the day!

    Seriously, “… releasing anything that is less than who I truly am…” such an inspiring, powerful statement. I’ll remember that as the song plays over and over in my head. : )

  5. We are traveling similar paths. I haven’t figured out yet what the payoff is that keeps me holding onto all the yucky stuff. I am so ready to fly, but every time I start to leap off the side of the nest, something pulls me back.

  6. Hi! I feel as if you have written this post for me. It so aligns with where my headspace is at the moment. Thanks for being brave enough to write this one!

  7. Another soulful post. Keep going, girl!
