Searching for my way out of the rat race to early retirement.

Haiku Journal Day 186 – Victorious

Home at last, victors.
Brought home the weak and wounded.
All is well again.


Sadhguru Teaching 

The nature of this existence, even for the wrong reasons, you do the right things, the right things will happen to you.

Don’t worry about doing things wrong.

Oopa yoga = pre-yoga

Religion teaches us with logical paths – as soon as something crosses our boundaries, we’ll stop following. That’s why they typically present the scripture that reminds us about reward for those that blindly follow.

My Spirit Animal Revealed

I guess the timing was right and I was finally open enough spiritually for you to reveal yourself to me. I’m not certain how or when, but at some point this year it was decided: You and I would start communicating on a new level.

In some ways, I always knew. I had a fascination with large predatory birds. It wasn’t the same as with dolphins or cats like many girls venture towards. It was a deep, profound respect and almost fear of birds.

I ignored it for much of my young adulthood while I discovered myself. Then a few years ago, I visualized feeling like an eagle with chained ankles. I blamed my husband for chaining my ankles for years, then one day I realized he keeps me grounded. Not too long after that epiphany, I also realized that eagles and birds always fly close to the sun, but return safely home to the nest every night. And that was when I believe a large enough crack opened and started to widen my thick, very religious and brainwashed skull open.

So then I started speaking to birds more and more, so I could understand. Birds would fly over me and no one else, especially when I was deep in thought.

And the universe revealed it’s alchemist plan all at once…. I fell in love with a man that introduced me and takes me to a bird sanctuary for vacation. I have an uncanny ability to see the bigger pictures. Suicidal birds flocked to me right before a major “death” in my life. Birds fly over me daily. A special friend of my mom is a bird lover and my closest family members love birds. Feathers are dropped near me regularly.

It might be a fluke, but I chose to start recognizing our friendship and the eagle’s mentorship. The Universe always knew. And now that I realize I’m an alchemist, I now know too.
