On the River of Life
Rivers are symbolic of the passage of time, are metaphors for life, convey fertility, embody the power of nature, and also symbolize passageways, as well as boundaries and continuous change.
They are constantly flowing so moving through life with greater ease is a part of their reflection for us that is available as our experience.
Rivers are wellsprings of ancient wisdom indeed and help direct and clarify your path if you are ready to listen.
This is the symbolism I will be sitting with this week and having reflected, as we landed on the Colorado River in Blythe yesterday.
An unassuming, but extremely peaceful spot right on the rapidly flowing water.
There are tons of varieties of birds here, one particular kind loving to congregate in the tree to our right chirping away their songs.
And we continuously have seen a couple hundred white cattle egret flocking through, which is an incredible sight and sound as they swirl in circles before landing then rise up again and swirl some more.
Last evening while we relaxed outside on our chairs with refreshments, a large group of coyotes greeted us with their ancient howls, followed by a Burrowing Owl hooting nearby.
The crickets and frogs were chirping away throughout all of this, creating a symphony of Nature’s voices and us as her guests, listening to the evening unfold its magick.
This morning we were greeted by our first beautiful sunrise here and again the flocks of cattle egret spiraling about.
I love the individual ducks that joyfully take a ride on the fast flowing current down the river. They, too, slowly spiraling like a spinning tea cup ride, as they glide by.
Makes me giggle, as that would be me indeed.
There are many reflections here for me to receive and the flowing peacefulness will be a great nurturing for my projects and inspirations this week.
Everywhere we turn there are guiding posts, messages, and support.
I hope you take time to notice the ones in front of you as well, where ever you are.
