I drew the Eagle card (from the Medicine Cards by Jamie Sams and David Carson) twice - once on the Winter Solstice and once on Christmas Eve.

Eagle is the first card of this deck. Eagle represents Spirit.
"Eagle....Fly high. Touch Great Spirit.
Share your medicine, touch me, honour me.
So that I may know you too."
Eagle medicine is the ability to live in the realm of Spirit, and yet remain connected and balanced within the realm of Earth.

"If you have pulled this symbol, Eagle is reminding you to take heart and gather your courage, for the Universe is presenting you with an opportunity to soar above the mundane levels of your life."

"If Eagle has majestically soared into your cards, you are being put on notice to reconnect with the element of Air. Air is of the mental plane, and in this instance, it is of the higher mind. Wisdom comes in many strange and curious forms and is always related to the Creative Force of the Great Spirit."

"Eagle medicine is the gift we give ourselves to remind us of the freedom of the skies. Eagle asks you to give yourself permission to legalize freedom and to follow the joy your heart desires."

Whew! Powerful message. Now I need to take the advice.

There was a year (about 5 years ago, when all I did was dream about horses or pull "horse" medicine cards. Decided to take horseback riding lessons. I'm not sure what the lesson was - I stopped riding when I went to nursing school. Would love to ride a horse and just let the wind sail through my hair and be one with the animal. One day, I will find a good teacher and get back on a horse.

For now, I will concentrate on Eagle medicine.
Love and Light to all of you sharing my journey.

Looks like you will be getting your winds this year. Mine have already started to grow too. I did a photo of me with my new chocolate wings, I will post it soon. I believe you are growing in spirit and will soon learn to fly. I have received the gift of Joy and passion this year. I will lean to be free this next year. Free of baggage that binds.

Hi Sherry, Happy New Year to you too.
Oh, I have lots and lots of stories, mostly in my imagination. I am hoping this Eagle Medicine will set me free. Free of restricting thoughts and patterns that tie me down.

Hi Grammy, it looks like we may be flying together. I hope it will be to some nice warm tropical island.
Love and Light
