This morning a coyote appeared in the nature preserve behind our house. This wasn’t so unusual….we are blessed to have many beautiful creatures who live so close. What was unusual was the determined way he stood, watching me. He sauntered by the bird feeders, then instead of walking on as most coyotes do, he laid down and
continued looking up at me and Bella.
Animal messengers appear in our lives all the time, sharing their medicine with us if we choose to listen. Coyote, sometimes known as the trickster is also the messenger of playfulness and spontaneity. It was clear to me that this fellow’s message to me was about letting go of fear. I have been going through some deep personal growth lately and this has sparked a sense of insecurity and fear as I let go of old patterns and embrace the unknown.
When we open ourselves to divine wisdom, animals can become like angels who bring us valuable information and lessons. They are always there, we need only open our minds and hearts.
