Standing Tall


The Great Blue Heron showed up for me again this weekend.

He was maybe 10-15 feet away from me in the woods by the creek bank as I was hiking with my dog. I saw something move out of the corner of my eye and was shocked to see him so close. So big, maybe 4 feet tall? Not something I expect to see in the woods.

And yet, she is an old friend of mine and quite the guide. Heron medicine speaks to independence, standing tall, and self-reliance. Lessons that I have come to know quite well in the past 2 years. I would say “too well” during my pity parties.

So I’m writing this post in honoring of my friend showing up. Also a request that I can move through this stage of my lessons with some strength and dignity and grace, just like the heron.

I’m also writing this because I know I’m not the only one growing with and struggling with these lessons. Some days it sure does take a lot to show up for life and be open to the messages. Having good friends and guides along the way sure does help. I’m always here if you need me.

Love Always,
