Without fail, when my eyes first catch sight of a Swallow my heart fills with joy. Swallows represent precious moments; love, freedom, new beginnings and most precious of all, summer, which brings with it time outside doing all that we love, with the people and animals we love.
I have twist and turned many a time, gazing upwards in awe at their aerial display, watching them dive on the summer breeze.
The Swallow has it’s own legends and tales that are unique. One of my favorites is that it stole fire from the sun ☀️ and brought it to earth on it’s tail feathers, hence the reason they fork.
A swallow nesting on your house is said to bring with it protection from fire and storms. A swallow flying high tells you it’s going to be good weather, flying lower to the ground tells you that rain is on its way!
As medicine the Swallow reminds us to stay light in spirit, to not replay old issues and problems, to let them go and move on. Like an Eagle 🦅 the Swallow reminds us to rise above our challenges so that we may seek a fresh perspective. Distance gifts us new perspectives and in doing so allows us to see how we may best strengthen ourselves and others. Staying objective allows you to protect your home, heart and add greater warmth to your life and to the lives of all that you touch. As the swallow is busy outside soaring and diving eating the pests, you can focus on clearing your home, creating a fresh energy of loving warmth in your home to enjoy through summer. 💗🌿
