Symbols are all around us. Never more obvious-ly than when we're least expecting them.
Sitting in a meeting pouring out a bunch of Mel information. Which can be exhausting. (And. I'm in a position to know.) A tiny feather popped out from one of the down stuffed pillows that surrounded me.
The timing in the conversation was fascinating. It's presence interesting. Certainly, I could let it go and discard the tiny feather... but, it made me curious. And curious Mel likes answers.
Tucked safely in my Tree House contemplating the cosmos, I looked up the meaning of feathers....
"Dealing with ascension and spiritual evolution to a higher plane."
I gotta say. That was deeper than I expected.... (oddly, it didn't end there...)
As I was letting the feather concept settle. Something else happened. The interrelated universe had another message to deliver. No kidding you.... into my closed up, windows & doors shut, heat on, house... A Ladybug crawled across my desk... Just kickin it. Not bothering anyone. Emerging out of nowhere.
I don't know a lot, but I do like to figure things out.
The first listing under meaning of seeing a Ladybug....
"Symbolizing delight, protection and trust, a porta fortuna (good luck charm) and a symbol for the soul."
Prompting more reading...
"Because the life cycle of the adult Ladybug is short it teaches us how to release our worry and enjoy our life to the fullest. When it appears it is telling us to "let go and let God."
Tying it all up in a nice bow...
"The Ladybug teaches us how to restore our faith and trust in great spirit. It initiates change where it is needed the most. When a ladybug appears it is asking us to get out of our own way and allow great spirit to enter."
Mel needs to take a break and melitate on this enlightened turn of events...
Give it some space to breath.
To kick start the action... I opened up my doors and windows and watched the ladybug fly away, returning to nature.
