Using the Hawk as a Spirit Animal

The spirit animal represents a “life force” that supports the work we do and the services we provide.

My journey with the hawk as a spirit animal started some time ago. It came into focus in many ways over and over again. My friend Annie urged me to pay attention. It began revealing itself in the most powerful way when further awakening followed an urge to simply stop being afraid of my own true light. It stirred my awareness and really got my attention. I started to question its symbolic meaning. From that moment on, everything pointed in the same direction. I followed that lead and it brought me here. It kept saying….”Remain fearless and make a difference”…and now, I am convinced I can.

Hawk Power Animal:

Messenger Discernment Intuition Observation Wisdom Courage Truth

Hawks are visionaries and messengers. Many of the messages hawks bring are about freeing yourself of thoughts and beliefs that are limiting your ability to soar above your life and gain a greater perspective. It is this ability to soar high above to catch a glimpse of the bigger picture that will allow you to survive and prosper. It teaches us to be observant and to pay attention to what we may overlook. This could mean a talent we aren’t using, a gift or unexpected help for which we haven’t shown our gratitude. It could mean a message from the Universe or a higher source of wisdom.
The hawks’ vision goes beyond the physical too – they have a knack for seeing into the souls of people. Some might call it a gift of intuition. They just have a sense or an ‘aerial view’ into what is going on in the hearts and minds of people. Having this animal as a spirit guide emphasizes an ability to lead and influence others.

Hawks look above the problem for solutions. They are expert problem solvers because they aren’t part of the problem – they aren’t stuck in the issue. Rather, they rise above it, and in an elevated state they are able to see answers and provide solutions most others might overlook.
When the hawk is present in your life, it could signify that it’s time to take more initiative and become active in your own life. Optimism is one of the strongest virtues. Hawks love to share a vision of a better and brighter future.

The destiny of man is to awaken from spiritual amnesia and to realign with the original intention of their soul. When the hawk gets a hold of us in his powerful talons, we will be asked to evaluate who we have become and to shatter our self-created illusions. This will help our inner truth to come out into the open and for it to finally illuminate. Hawks hold the key to higher levels of consciousness. This power animal enables us to awaken our vision and inspires a new and creative life purpose.
