Sounding Your Own Unique Note in 2018

Have you ever held a bird in your hands?

Perhaps a fledgling that fell out of its nest.

Or an injured bird no longer able to fly.

If so you might remember the warmth of the feathers beneath your fingers.

The trust the bird shows when it understands you are a compassionate human who wants to help its distress.

Over the years I have taken care of many wild birds.

Cradling a bird in my hands is like cradling a living vibration.

The little body thrums.

I have learned that pigeons purr when they are happy.

And each pigeon purrs in a different way.

The vibration is unique.

Through the vibrations of tiny birds I have grown deeply sensitive to those subtle energy movements that broadcast our frequency to the world.

Like a bird, you, too, have your own, unique sound – your own, unique frequency.

You are a member of an orchestra that encompasses the entire web of life.

And your frequency is an essential note in the harmonic whole.

As an aware member of this orchestra your obligation is ensuring that your own instrument stays tuned.

You alone are responsible for finding and sounding your true, unique note.

And while doing this, to participate in and contribute to the web of interconnections.

When you do this as a committed member of the orchestra, what happens?

You play your part in the harmony of frequencies that creates the swell of existence.

The vibration of life that supports and sustains us all.

As 2018 moves into summer I seek more and more to vibrate at the frequency that broadcasts health and connection.

To sound the note that is mine alone.

To thrum with authentic presence.

To vibrate like a tiny bird.

To soar.

How well are you sounding your own unique note in your life?
