A beautiful message from the Universe came to me yesterday afternoon. In the message, we were reminded of the gift of wings and it is a common misconception to think that only birds and angels have wings. We have wings too!
Where are our wings?
Put your hands together (palms facing down) and let them touch at the wrists.
What do you see?
You should see a heart shape in the middle, flank by wings. That's your very first obvious pair of wings. Use them with love and gratitude.
When you press your hands together, you respect and honour the divine spark in you. When you greet others with hands pressed together, you respect the divine in them. This gesture is an acknowledgement of the soul in one by the soul in another. This is often greeted with the word "namaste". Next, cup your hands side by side, you get another heart shape. It signifies receiving and giving with gratitude and humility.
Our other obvious wings are our ears, our mouth and our eyes. Our ears are wings at the sides of our head. This set of wings is for us to listen with love and intently. Our mouth and eyes are shaped like wings at rest. The very fact they are having at-rest shapes means we need to use them with care and less reactively. We need to learn to see and speak without judgement and with loving kindness. Wrong impressions and harsh words do not help in most, if not, all circumstances.
The biggest set of wings
They are on our back! Have you ever felt yours?
I have felt mine. They are huge and warm; they cuddle me each night. The Universe affirms whenever I feel them each time. The affirmations come in very unusual ways. Wings are sighted most unexpectedly: Macdonald's restaurants, a sports shop, a truck, TV advertisement, signboards and so on. I am always receiving feathers at home too. They are considered Angels' feathers. I received a fluffy one this morning when I was considering this topic. I really do not know how well readers will receive it. The feather assured me that the topic will be accepted in ways known to readers. The Universe will take care of it.
I shall end this with an empowering quote:
"You must be the change you wish to see in the world." - Mahatma Ghandi
In violet love and joy,
P.S: Pelagic stingrays have wings too!
