THE HEALING BIRD
I never knew how important this gift would be until I found it in a stack of pictures and paintings when we moved. I had them all in a pile so that I could re-hang the things that were important to me in our new house. This gift has a 3 X 5 card taped to the back that says this: "Healing Bird...they are used for treatment of all illnesses by the medicine men. This painting is made from natural color of sand and rock." It is signed but I cannot read it, unfortunately. Maybe it was signed by the medicine man himself since doctors are known for their sloppy signatures when they write prescriptions!
Anyway, what comes to mind for me is that since I heard of Mary's passing on December 15th, I had hoped that the gift her death would bring would be the healing of relationships. I cannot speak for others but for myself, I am feeling the healing that I am speaking about. And perhaps it is because I am reading "Awakening Joy" right now which is so apropos. Or perhaps it is because I have learned that I cannot fix other people, only myself. And by seeing Mary's Healing Bird appear at a time that I most needed it, I think that she always knew I would need this at some point in my life since it is "used for treatment of all illnesses".
I watched a video yesterday on YouTube that really hit home for me. Perhaps it will make an impression on some of you too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEzJnheUIXc Our lives are what we make of them and there is always someone out there who has it worse than we do. I appreciate my life because I know that in an instant it can be over. I want no regrets, only healing. Thanks for the prescription Mary! I will use it wisely!
