The Eagle and the Sun

Eagle Medicine is the power of the Great Spirit. It is the gift of clear vision with which one can truly see the things one sees. It has the spirit of tenacity and courage. It is the patience to wait for just the right moment. It is to live in balance with heaven and earth. The eagle reminds you of your connection with the Great Spirit. It tells you that the universe is giving you the opportunity to fly above your life's worldly levels, and beyond the shadow of the past. Eagle teaches you to look above in order to touch Grandfather Sun with your heart, to love the Shadow as much as the Light. Eagle asks you to grant yourself permission to be free in order to reach the joy that your heart desires.

Lift yourself into the wings of all birds that fly
You can see through their golden eyes,
You can touch the wind that sweeps through their velvet feathers,
You can know the joy of going way up high above the world and all its cares.
You can stay as long as you want in the sky, past the night, through sunrise,
And when you feel like coming down again, your questions will have answers
And your worries will be gone.
~Richard Bach (There's no such place as far away)
