March has proved to start like lion, but is it going out like the lamb? How are you fairing the latest in the energy ping pong match during the month of March? I have been writing a lot about this topic over the past month from spiritual purging to tips to get you through to lessons learned. You can view all my writings by scrolling here.
March has sure proved to be quite the challenging month for so many and so many can not wait for it to go away. The outlook for April however, looks promising after feeling like we’ve been stripped to our cores.
April will be about simplification and continued intensification as we continue to strip back the layers of self. We are being asked to rise above any given situation and shine our brilliant true selves that we are. To do this we will need to closely examine life’s complications and distractions that have shaped and defined our lives for so long and forgive what needs forgiveness. I will be talking more about forgiveness throughout the month of April so stay tuned.
As we journey this life together, I learn as you learn. Spirit has been quite busy this week with delivering messages to me from the 11 turkey to the male cardinal encounter to the mourning dove to the deer to the redtail hawk to all sorts of coded numbers all in past couple days. All three animal species have strong connections to Native American symbolism.

When it comes to decoding messages from Spirit from the signs we receive, for everyone in every situation it is different in the meaning. That’s where interpretation of what we receive varies. You can google your symbolism or read about it in a book like “Animal Speak” by Ted Andrews, but at the end of the day, the messages are personalized to that individual and we must learn to develop our own symbology.
I developed a class just in this subject matter to learn to decode the messages called “Attaining Messages from Spirit Through Nature and Numbers” which is being held on April 20th. So what I post here are personal to my experiences and may or may not resonate with you.

The challenges we have been experiencing are happening with all of us. None of us are immune including myself. I am in this with you. When I feel vulnerable, I tend to look to Spirit for guidance and boy have the messages been flooding in.
The other day I was out enjoying a country drive when I stumbled upon 11 turkey. I stopped. Paused and enjoyed the moment and experience the energy of the turkey. The were mischevious, curious, comforting and playful. Ironically, I had just picked up the documentary from the library I wanted a friend to watch called “My Life As A Turkey” minutes before the sighting.
So what was the message from the turkey you say? In this case, it was a reminder from the Universe to stay in the moment, focus on the blessings, and prepare to shine my plumage when called upon to do so. So my response to the Universe is “Thank you. I am grateful”.
The cardinal was amazing. I first heard his loud boisterous calls and singing in the morning while out for my morning walk, but something amazing happened later that caught my attention. Even though I acknowledged his appearance that morning and the previous morning, I clearly was not hearing his message. I wrote about cardinals in a “Cardinal Message From Spirit” on the symbolism behind cardinals. Later that day, he appeared louder than ever and even exchanged a conversation back and forth in a small bush within 3 feet from me. The experience was quite refreshing.
The message for me is a simple reminder to listen to my gut and rise above the situation no matter how dire it appears to me as it is all a matter of perception. The cardinal is also reminding me to activate the personal power within and leave behind all fears and excuses.
The mourning dove on top of my roof making the its presence known was also reminding me to keep the peace within and don’t get distracted by all the minutia.

The two deer I encountered were also magnificent with a very similar message. In my case, I always see deer as a message associated with family life for me.
Here the message of the deer was a reminder from the Universe to not stress over life circumstances, but instead listen more. It is important to use the grace and appreciation for the beauty of balance of the deer to move forward in these chaotic roller coaster ride of energy shifts.
The deer also reminded me what is important in life such as understanding of what’s necessary for survival, power of gratitude and giving, ability to sacrifice for the higher good, and seeking alternative paths to my goals. Hence, through grace, gratitude, and listening, Spirit is guiding me to think outside the box to for the answers I seek.
As far as the retail hawk I saw earlier today, it served as a peaceful reminder since today was a very stressful day for me in which I began to lose faith and doubt my abilities. As I have said before, we are all in this together. I hope by sharing my struggles and how I manage to shift my energies, will hopefully help you.
Generally the hawk is symbolic as a messenger bird associated with focus, vision, and spiritual awareness.
Here the hawk sat quietly and content on the highest tree top amongst the chaotic highways. So for me the hawk reminded me to stay focused on the task at hand and avoid the distractions. By letting the hawk guide me, I can harness the hawk’s energy for a clearer vision and defy any obstacles in my way including my own fears. Hence, get out of my own way and allow the spirit of the hawk guide the way.
If you follow me on Facebook, twitter, or Pinterest, you will see the discussions I have been posting all month on this topic of letting go, spiritual purging, and allowing the true self to shine.
So the overall message I am hearing over the next few days is to buckle up you boot straps and hold on for the ride of your life.
The next several days may be paradoxical and a doozy with the climax arriving Sat April 4th for the blood full moon eclipse. Knowing this, the energies will be high and intense. However, blood full moon eclipses are also known to be a great omen for change.
Tips to get you through:
- Make sure you drink lots of water.
- Act from a place of love and compassion.
- Get lots of rest.
- Embrace these challenges.
- Manifest your true self.
- Try to enjoy the ride.
In March we saw much of the old purged such as many of our old karmic, energetic, and akashic contracts. April will prove to be a little bit of a smoother ride if you make the necessary preparations. The time to start is now. Time to reveal the new you. Let the new you shine.
Namaste. As always, I would love to hear about your experiences. Please leave your feedback as it helps me help you. Have a blessed day.
With lots of love and appreciation,
