Dream of Hawk Medicine

I was sleeping on the ground outdoors with a baby — a toddler really — nestled fullly content in my arms.  A large hawk flew up next to us and sat quietly beside as if to be a watchman.  I was hazily stroking its smooth dark feathers, half in and half out of the in-between state of waking wondering why it has come to me.  Was it okay?  Was it sick?  Hurt?   Broken?  Trying to examine it gently using my fingertips, I sifted through its shiny stiff feathers🪶 waiting for a reaction to give me the answer, but there didn’t seem to be anything wrong. 

I laid there amazed by its presence with me in this moment.  Staring, I wondered deeply, ‘why it was here?’  The baby I was cuddling smiled happily at me then crawled up and kissed the birds beak, then cheek, and fell safely back into her nap.  It was so sweet and loving that I followed suit and did it too, first the bird then the baby♡.  The bird must have felt our love because it shuffled even closer to us, and the three of us sort of snuggled, nesting and resting together. 

I laid in observation of a reverent moment that I am aware was much larger than me –  than my life – as we seemed to be energetically melting and merging into each other … we were simultaneously becoming one!

When I woke up in real life, I was still submerged in a dream-daze.  I didn’t know what to think about us three merging altogether into one. 

Did I turn into the bird?  The baby?  Did they turn into me?  What did it mean?

This dream had a very lucid erethral feeling.  It felt very real.

I was still pondering the possible message, when I sharply recalled that my ‘spirit guide’ in most experiences has been a hawk!   In meditation journeys, I usually see it approaching from afar as it flies up to me and simultaneously turns into a large being with big beautiful wings that open up wide and engulf me into what feels like an eternal embrace which then holds me and cradles me in safety and love as its dear child.  The love I feel being collected into its soulful center is a feeling of complete bliss.

I remebered the child which was held within the saftey of my arms, nestled into my center, protected in the embrace of my own life-sized wings. 

Then came a stunning realization … the baby was me!  My true innocent, non-emotionally wounded, uninjured, unhurt, perfect self! Whole and complete.  Blissfully ignorant.

The next realization quickly followed…I’m the one who’s hurt not the bird!   The mind, body, soul ailments I’ve been through within the last 3 years came to the forefront of my mind to remind me just how much I’d survived.

Wave on wave of challenge and trauma to overcome, my spirit guide was there to help me heal.  And the baby was an aspect of myself when I was “pure.”  She was there to help me let go of the current damage as well as release old programming, karmic imprints, energetic debris, and layers of experience that no longer serve me for highest good.

The three of us didn’t just become one in that moment, we have always been One!  And let’s go even one bigger truth blanketing that, WE ALL ARE ONE!

This is a short story I’ve been working on for several months. Recapping what had happened in the dream, piecing it all together after having experienced divorce, death, unemployment, corona-times, a car accident and then cancer (in that order) within a very short amount of time…too short actually to have time to recover and heal adequately from each individual hit.

It has happened in the past several times, when I need to heal from a traumatic experience, spirit people come to me in my dreams to help (like in my Dream of Bear Medicine). This is exactly what happened in this dream.

The story flowed easily out onto this virtual page offering me (for the second time) a powerful transcendence. I hope it does the same for you.

On wings and waves of Our Oneness, I wish you peace, love & healing.♡




As I enjoy my backyard surroundings, full of  fruit trees, flowers, plants and good energy. It’s easy to reflect upon the blessings that being a mom has brought me again and again and again just like the seasons, cycles of the journey.♧

Here, a dragonfruit flower grows so rapidly you can almost see it expand; a Goldfinch visits to remind me to build small everday goals to progress on big projects; a monarch flutters by speaking of grace, hummingbird shares its pure magic; and a protective mama bird builds its nest nearby.☆

Life goes on all around us each day gifting us through sounds, sights, and our senses if we just slow down long enough to sit with it, notice, become aware…and then be grateful.♡

Happy Mother’s Day to all, Shannon

Beautiful You

Once again I have been blessed by a visit from this beautiful creature reminding me…

This is a season of renewal and transformation for many of us on a journey of self-discovery.

Acknowledging there is deep internal change needed within is not always an easy thing to face; in fact, it’s scary and often requires vulnerability, courage and bravery to master a graceful change.

Can you imagine how much bravery this fragile creature must have to exist in this big world?!

To unearth the hidden beauty and wisdom that has gently held us cocooned in our programmed belief systems takes looking truthfully at what needs to be pulled up by the roots, broken down into smaller pieces, and composted altogether to feed nutritiously a more authentic version of our true selves moving forward.

What seeds of yours need feeding, navigating to your eternal self where you can live from that blissful timeless space blessed by moments with creatures and beings of all kinds?

Are you seeing their beautiful spirits regardless of their outter skin, their personal preferences, shape, color, or external characteristics?  Do you know how they serve in this world in their big or small ways?  Do you know they’re divinely-aligned for their own genuine growth on a journey guided by eternal Love, the same One that is within us, it’s in every one of us!

On wings and waves of One love I see the beautiful YOU!

Rewilding Me

It’s a merry morning as I look out my window in the early a.m. California frost.  ‘Cold as hell’ is welcomed after our long hot ‘n heated summer – the crisp air and a frozen nose is just what I need to wake me from my hibernation of a warm toasty bed recovering from what has ailed me.

As I arise today, I decide I will take more space to allow myself to breathe and be for a spell.  Knowing that I’ve woken into new knowledge of what being really means, I steadily steam on in search of the rewilded me of whom I’ve been seeking for all my lives.

At a recent point in my journey all these pieces named me have been tossed in the air and are now making their descent…slowly gliding, invited downward by the grace of gravity, by which I know my time is not finished yet here on this beautiful earth. Blessed Be.  When all of me lands, I will have a new life…again.

The way will show the way, Antonio Machado says it so mystically in his beautiful writings.

“Wanderer, there is no way, the way is made by walking. Walker, your footsteps are the road and nothing more.  Walker, there is no road, the road is made by walking.  Walking you make the road, and turning to look behind you see the path you never again will step upon.  Walker there is no road, only foam trails on the sea.”

I myself am learning to walk again, humbly honoring these words, this concept and strategy, if you will, to have faith with each step into the mystical, the unknown and uncharted territory of the moments I walk.  I carry with me as I go an invisible bag containing the understanding that anxiety, depression or fear can come if I’m looking too far ahead or behind me; therefore, the task and practice afoot is allowing the past to reside in the past and the future to be unknown…to simply be present in the Now.

How can I move forward if I’m gazing backwards?  How can I be present if I’m dreaming off deep into the future?  Taking my eyes off my own two feet, the ground I walk on today can take away the magical possibilities that lie underneath the presence of each soulful step into the worlds that will open wide in faith and reknow me.

I am a traveler on the in-between of old and new, stripped down, naked, humbled, unmasked from the cloak of ego.  Each step I take now opens a new door of opportunity, possibility and potential of the acceptance and truth of who I AM.

I’ve been a superwoman my whole life, bearing the burden of being in a world wrought with fear and programming but a new year, a new time is upon me…upon us.   It’s here for us all, brothers and sisters.

Today I release the cape that covers my true spirit and trade it for the desire to be naturally guided in my journey forward, aligned, connected to my inner-being choosing the road not yet traveled, the one of faith heading into the mystic, free to go with the flow of Source.

I AM rewilding me.

Love, Shannon

Wolf of White Light

Today we are getting a glimpse of the very beautiful Wolf of White Light who tells us to follow our INSTINCTS.

We all have characteristics that have been learned and built on instincts from past experiences. Some hide inside us deeper than others and are fearful to see the light of day, nevertheless we see the light shining from afar that we instinctively know in our souls we should follow. When we listen to our guide and choose to follow this instinct, we are promised opportunity to learn, build skills and complete much-needed healing along the way.

It could be a life-long commitment to endure the experiences that will take faith and love. Focus on development of the heart instead of the mind. In this case, the reward is not money or a trophy to show off, it’s a whole heart, a smile, and a deep feeling of gratitude for the chance to experience what is not common.

On Wings & Waves, Shannon
