Eagle - Spirit

Prayer -

Eagle . . .

Fly high,

Touch Great Spirit,

Share your medicine,

Touch me, honor me,

So that I may know you too.

Eagle medicine is the power of the Great Spirit, the connection to the

Divine. It is the ability to live in the realm of spirit, and yet remain

connected and balanced within the realm of the Earth. Eagle soars, and is

quick to observe expansiveness within the overall pattern of life. From the

heights of the clouds, Eagle is close to the heavens where the Great Spirit


The feathers of Eagle are considered to be the most sacred of healing tools.

They have been used for centuries by shamans to cleanse the auras of

patients coming to them for healing. Within the belief systems of Native American

tribes, Eagle represents a state of grace achieved through hard work,

understanding, and a completion of the tests of initiation which result in

the taking of one's personal power. It is only through the trial of

experiencing the lows in life as well as the highs, and through the trial of

trusting one's connection to the Great Spirit, that the right to use the

essence of Eagle medicine is earned.

If you have pulled this symbol, Eagle is reminding you to take heart and

gather your courage, for the universe is presenting you with an opportunity

to soar above the mundane levels of your life. The power of recognizing this

opportunity may come in the form of a spiritual test. In being astute, you

may recognize the places within your soul, personality, emotions, or psyche

that need bolstering or refinement. By looking at the overall tapestry,

Eagle teaches you to broaden your sense of self beyond the horizon of what is

presently visible.

In learning to fiercely attack your personal fear of the unknown, the wings

of your soul will be supported by the everpresent breezes which are the

breath of the Great Spirit.

Feed your body, but more importantly feed your soul. Within the realm of

Mother Earth and Father Sky, the dance that leads to flight involves the

conquering of fear and willingness to join in the adventure that you are

co-creating with the Divine.

If Eagle has majestically soared into your cards, you are being put on

notice to reconnect with the element of Air. Air is of the mental plane, and in

this instance it is of the higher mind. Wisdom comes in many strange and curious

forms and is always related to the creative force of the Great Spirit.

If you have been walking in the shadows of former realities, Eagle brings

illumination. Eagle teaches you to look higher and to touch Grandfather Sun

with your heart, to love the shadow as well as the light. See the beauty in

both, and you will take flight like the Eagle.

Eagle medicine is the gift we give ourselves to remind us of the freedom of

the skies. Eagle asks you to give yourself permission to legalize freedom

and to follow the joy your heart desires.
