A Feather on my Path

A little more than 30 hours since I committed to taking the summer off away from social media sites where I was spending way too much time.

I woke up yesterday morning wondering what kind of reaction I might have if I didn’t go on Facebook, Instagram and other social media places. I wondered if I might have anxiety about it. Surprisingly no reaction. It felt very liberating instead. The only thing I noticed is about checking emails (which I’m still giving myself permission to do this summer) doesn’t give me the colourful visual that I love from other sites… but I will survive and probably learn to cut back from that too.

Yesterday was a busy day for me, as there’s a lot of things that I’m working on personally. I barely saw the day go by as I was deep into this one thing in particular. It was also the new moon so I knew that in the next day or two there needed to be some quiet time happening for me where I could sit down and plant new seeds (intentions) for this next lunar cycle.

Today was spent with my husband. We had the pleasure of meeting with two new people who have synchronistically arrived on our path to help… and we accepted the invitation.

In the past two years we have experienced turbulent times like never in our almost 30 years of marriage and family life. At least never quite at this level of intensity. It’s been a profound time that’s affected us on every level of our lives. It’s impossible to put words to it. One day in the future, if I am guided to share about it the words will come I am sure. Throughout these past two years I have never prayed so much… asking God for help. Many days I have felt suffocated by the gigantic, monumental task that lay ahead with no instructions to get us through any of it. But everyday we continued to show up, to get out of bed and put one foot in front of the other even when we didn’t know where it was bringing us. We had to trust.

Today was a day where some of the answered prayers arrived once again. You know when you are on the right path, you feel it so deep in your heart and every fibre of your being. I am always so grateful when certain pieces of the puzzle of life come together. I always make sure that God hears just how grateful I am for all He does to help.

This evening we had a few small trees we wanted to plant. Along with my husband we were trying to find the best place. I was hoping to plant them near another evergreen tree to form a triangle, but we couldn’t because of underground wires and water line. As we measured our property, right there on the ground in front of my eyes this beautiful shiny black feather waiting for me to pick it up.

A Feather on my Path

I knew it was a sign from above and for that I was so grateful and overjoyed.

 

On the right path

seeing my life as sacred

going inward to my source of power

my Truth

reframing my whole life seeing it as sacred and healing

this is part of my journey right now

hearing ancient spirits

listening deeply

there’s a story

it is speaking and I am ready to listen

choosing to heal

creating rituals

I am already on the path

this feather a confirmation of what I already knew.

There is heightened awareness

a higher purpose with my life

a higher spiritual path

ready to overcome challenges

to change the story.

Flight and freedom

soaring above, looking from a higher perspective

just like the bird who gifted me this feather

moving beyond boundaries and limitations.

Angels, God and Guides

leaving me a sign to help guide me on my path.

  1. Oh, those feathers always give a sense of “everything is going to be okay”. Angels of everywhere, dear friend. We are here, too.

  2. Good for you for listening to the sacred voice within, Suzanne. Sometimes all we can do is show up but with prayers and hope, it’s more than showing up, isn’t it? It’s engaging in the dance and surrendering to the path. Lots of love to you and best wishes for a centering and creative summer! ♥

    • Love the visual “engaging in the dance and surrendering to the path” … sounds easy, light and fun, although not always. But when we can trust, it seems that we are held always and shown the way. Blessings to you!! Enjoy your summer too. xo

  3. That feather showing up certainly was an affirmation that you were and are on the right path. Don’t you just love it when the Universe leaves a message that all is well! The very best to you! xo

  4. Thank you – for reminding me to see blessings, for inspiring me to tone down the onl9ine stuff.
    With love,

  6. Finding your way when things are hard is such a tender time Suzanne, and yet you’re facing it with strength and courage. I’m glad you’re finding support in both the seen and unseen realms. Wishing you lots of ease and grace and surrounding you with love.

    • Thank you Deborah. I so appreciate your beautiful comments. It’s not easy showing up amidst so much upheaval and challenges, but there is no other way really to do life but to keep hammering away at it all and reshaping things one tiny little piece at a time. Thank you for dropping by… Blessings!! <3

  7. So grateful for the peace you’re finding in the chaos,
    your listening heart,
    the way you’re leaning into the light even while the storm storms on.
    You’re beautiful and loved and safe and seen:)
