I didn't want to hijack Bears thread about his experience with a Hawk. So i am starting this one.............................................. A Red tailed hawk is a visionary and messenger from the spirit world. This messenger brings a lesson and that is to discover our hidden abilities and to open our eyes to a greater picture of this world. Some think the Hawk is a symbol of peace and light. But in my mind the Hawk shows me a road to hidden wisdoms and insights. Listen to the Hawk with your heart and you will hear it teach you to be observant of these insights and wisdoms. Red Tailed Hawks are sacred and of a higher calling.

The beautiful red color represents the Hawks power that comes with a maturity . This is our reminder that wisdom takes time and is not something that is given, the wisdom of Red Tailed Hawk is something that must be earned.

Those of us who own a special skill of watching the world around us with the pure heart will always have the Red Tail hawk soar along side us. Whether in Dreams and/or ~visions~ or among nature.

The penetrating stare of a Hawk from his perch to our eyes will leave us with a gaze into the veil of that which separates the false world and the truth.

Red Tailed Hawk has the ability to view a large picture of the world while soaring on the winds. Those of us that believe in the Hawk and his role in life, also believe in the philosophy that all things happen for a reason. Like the Hawk it is this awareness of the ~Big Picture, ~ that will assist us with insight to get through many a difficult time.

Some believe the Red Tail Hawk can empower a person to seek out from where they came from. So they may move forward on their paths to seek out greatest in themselves.

In some Native American traditions, The Hawk served the role as a messenger. Changes of life are always there. The Hawk reminded the people they needed to be awake in the world, both on a physical plane and spiritual one and to always be aware of the changes.

As each of us strive through life we grow and change in many new directions. Like the spokes of a wagon wheel. Each of us stand on a spoke of the Medicine Wheel (a symbol of life). Many of us here walk on similar trail or path through the forest, along the mountains, or through the woods. It makes no difference who or what we are. If all of us would be more aware to the Hawk and his ways we could use that healing ability to heal the inner conflicts in our lives. I believe we all have the ability to heal ourself s and others through our experiences in nature. This inner peace of self-healing can rebalanced our Sacred life's..................... A few years back found me in a bad way in life. (long story) I watched a pair of Hawks raise their young in a nest along the river. Everyday they flew over me looking for food. I called out to them alot and they sometimes answered. If it wasn't for those Hawks and a Owl that visited me at night, the coyotes howling at night and a few racoons. I probably wouldn't be typing this. I found out through experience that nature is more than flesh and bones. Thank you for letting me share this.

Brother Vic : I had a Hawk sit in the trees outside my house all day last weekend . I just couldn't stop looking out the window at him. I then was drawn outside to shoot and watch from a little closer . I found myself looking at him with every step up and down the yard to get my arrows. I was out for a couple of hours and was just amazed at how long he stayed and watched me as much as I was watching him . Awesome day for me . I felt very blessed to be in his world. Thanks for sharing Brother . Drew

Vic:

Like someone else mentioned....I was looking out my window about 30 minutes ago.,..and a hawk lit on a limb in my front yard (woods...lol). THough I was inside, he wasn't 30' from me. I couldn't stop watching him...and when I saw him alerted, I stood up. I watched him as he landed, and figured he'd been mistaken. Boy was I ever wrong.

This fella pulled a salamander out of the SNOW!

LOL....Is that normal? Can we get a dream interpreter to translate this one for me???

Thanks for the post, Vic! I enjoyed it (I read it, after this sighting).

Me and Redtail go back a long way.
She helped me get my first muzzleloader deer, too.
Some things I can't talk about. [Cool]

Returning from a morning hunt this year I looked up to see five Turkey Buzzards circling overhead.Higher up I counted five Red-tailed Hawks circling.Returning home I told my wife there had to be some significance to my encounter as I have never seen five hawks at one time any time in my life .I filed this under miracles that only nature provides.
