We sat cross-legged casually facing each other on the bear skin rug. My shaman guide smiled and spoke for the first time “is hawk a spirit animal that works with you”? A smile donned my lips and an audible yes filled the space. “He is circling the parking lot from where you just came”. We both looked out the window and smiled with a deep knowing.
I had been called to Taos, New Mexico by my higher self ~ by spiritual guidance ~ maybe by the hawk? I was there to scout for a shamanic yoga retreat I felt compelled to lead and on this journey; magic unfolded. My Intuition spoke in all corners of the medicine wheel of life. My eyes would curiously turn to look at a building ~ as my now shaman friend would notice and say; “I was there last week holding ceremony”. Each place, animal, & breeze I was drawn to was connected with deep purpose. My shaman gypsy soul was on fire.
On our shamanic venturing, we visited the pueblo (the oldest active one in the US), soaked in a private sanctuary (with a beyond incredible crystal labyrinth), and I met a smokey quartz crystal ~ shaped like a hawk (of course) ~ that had called to me from the side of the road. The day had been full of spiritual awakening but we had one last place to visit. We were to cleanse my crystal in the healing waters of the Rio Grande. The road we took was known by locals and I was in giddy awe with each turn. We pulled up to the waters shore and the shaman asked me to bathe the gem and then ask it what name it wants to be called. I followed her guidance and as I looked down at my new rock friend; I heard it’s name flow out into the wind “heart of the soul”. As they were spoken, I glanced up to the rock face before my eyes and up from behind the cliff the hawk rose ... he then circled above our heads. And so it is. Aho!
