This lovely turkey family showed up for breakfast at dawn yesterday. And for lunchtime today.
As they’ve been visiting a lot for the past couple of months, I went back to remind myself of the messages brought by turkey spirit animal. Of course, there are the reminders about gratitude for our blessings, sacrifice for the greater good, about symbols of abundance, harvest, pride.
What I hadn’t recalled is that when the turkey visits us “it is a message to express our strength and brilliance-it’s time to show our own plumage and reveal” our true selves. http://whats-your-sign.com.
Or, in the eloquent words of Marianne Williamson:
“… ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? ….Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you…. We are all meant to shine, as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
In case anyone else needed a plumage-boost–this one’s for you :). Shine on….
