"To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour."
William Blake 
One of my favorite birthday gifts this year was a deck of Wild Unknown Animal Spirit cards.

Yesterday, after finishing a major project, two cards literally fell out of the deck for me.

Perhaps the pairing of The Vulture and The Swan will have something to say to you, too.

The Vulture is perhaps the most misunderstood creature of all. This intriguing bird balances our ecosystem and prevents the spread of disease. It does the dirty work that no one else wants to do and cleans up our messes. The vulture appears when there's a situation that needs to be purified or brought back into balance. Remember, the vulture is greatly undervalued...what you thought was a mistake or tragedy is a blessing in disguise.

The Swan represents heightened creativity. In Hindu mythology, the goddess Saraswati (the embodiment of language, creativity, and artistry) rides on the back of this graceful creature. The Swan is ready to take us there -- to the fluid realm of writing, creating, and reflecting. This potent and healing energy is not to be taken for granted, or taken lightly. When the Swan card appears your soul is calling for attention...for solo time. An inner voice is waiting to be heard, an inner vision is likely to be revealed.

Maybe these are the questions we need to ask ourselves:

What needs to be cleaned up... 
and what's waiting to be created?

Namaste for Now,


P.S.  Here's the Snazzy Invitation:
