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.

    Dear Mary. Ahhh, yes hawks. They are one of my favorite animal teachers. Their medicine is potent and strong…they help me remember my center since they have the ability to see far and wide from on high, and yet they can also spot the smallest mouse, reminding us that seeing things from all perspectives is empowering.

    Debra, you mentioned something called the liberty game that you are playing with Remmington. What is this? I’ve never heard of it. As you know, I’m working hard to build trust with my border collie, and always on the lookout for fun ways to improve our relationship. Thanks for all the inspiration!
