One of the cool things about training outdoors is discovering who shows up to watch.
No, I’m not talking about human beings. I’m talking about animals, birds and other critters.
When you get your energy running in a smooth, harmonious fashion, when you’re on target with a goal you’ve been thinking about – Mother Nature tends to give you signs.
A friend of mine saw a hawk in his front yard after making an important life decision. Another friend saw a raven overhead when she completed a training.
Another regularly spots deer.
Last week a friend told me that he was outdoors doing some energy work when hundreds of birds began flying overhead. He looked to the right and left to see if any of the surrounding areas had any sign of birds.
There were none.
When he finished he sent a text email to a friend, asking him to call at 10 a.m. Turns out that at the very moment the friend received the text message, he also had hundreds of birds circling over his head as he trained in his back yard.
He wanted to call and tell the friend about it – then he thought, “Naaah, he doesn’t want to hear this sort of thing.” And at that very moment he received the text to call him.
Makes yuh wonder, eh.
There is a critter that comes around almost every time I train. He’s a friendly squirrel.
He likes to try and sneak up on me when my eyes are
One day he got within a couple feet. When he saw me open my eyes, he stopped and looked at me for a moment. He appeared to be smiling, as if to say, “You caught me again.”
Then he ran off.
Well, today was different. Not just one squirrel – but three.
If you like to meditate or visualize or practice deep breathing and you have a pet cat – I’m sure you’ve noted that the cat makes a bee-line to your lap once you get into a peaceful state. Cats are big-time energy junkies.
Animals in nature tend to just show up. Not on our laps – but nearby.
Some people believe that animals bring us messages – if we’ll take the time to ask, “Why is he showing up today.”
Got any animal stories similar to these. I’d love to read them if you do.
