I’m grateful for the symbolic meaning of the eagle. When it comes to symbolic meanings, the most important symbolic meaning that anything holds is the meaning it holds to us personally. Our personal connection to a symbolic meaning is what ties it to our journey. I know the eagle represents so many things, but what made the eagle a powerful force in my life was when I was reading A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle, he asked readers to do an exercise where we look at things without naming them. The first time I ever did it, I spotted an eagle soaring over the place I lived where I felt trapped. I watched it without naming it. I just stood there in complete awe of this show of strength, grace, and freedom. I felt like I was given a Divine gift in that moment. For a brief moment, I saw my own strength, grace, and freedom reflected back to me. In the end, the eagle now signifies my freedom from anything and anyone who tries to hold me back, even if it’s myself. The eagle reminds me to soar with love, integrity, grace, and authenticity. I am me, and I am free to live life on my terms!
What does the eagle represent to you?
Today, I commit to embracing the symbolic meaning of the eagle. How will I soar today? I will honor my personal freedom by making the choice not to be the prisoner of my perspectives. I will align the stories I create and tell myself with the energy of love, abundance, and peace over fear, lack and separation. I will choose to live free from my own judgments that align my energy with fear, lack, and separation. I will choose to project and reflect the energy of love, abundance, and peace in my daily activities. I will soar by embracing the energy of love, abundance, and peace to rise up.
Part of embracing the symbolic energy of the eagle for me is releasing the dead weight that is holding me down. This means releasing suppressed, pent up, numbed, and ignored feelings that are keeping me chained to the ground. If I need to forgive myself or others to help me release these feelings, then that is what I will do in order to fly. If I need to let go of a story that I’m spinning in my head, then that is what I will do in order to fly. When I release MYSELF to soar, no one who is chained to the ground by their own doing can hurt me. That is the power of embracing the symbolic meaning of the eagle for me.
What does embracing the symbolic meaning of the eagle look like to you?
With Love, Abundance, and Peace,
