Swans in the Dog Days

Swans, Branford, CT

Come down to the pond with me in the stillness of the early evening and pay respectful regards to the swans.  This mated pair patrol the rock where their two children are resting.

Swans are totems of awakening to the true beauty and power of the Self.  Their graceful necks symbolize bridging the head and the heart ~ the higher realms to the earthly body.

Swans with Heart Cloud

The fading light gives us further evidence:  the clouds in the refection of the sky in the water are forming a heart.  Take a deep breath…cloak yourself in swan energy….float on the waters holding the heart, and feel how your beauty dwells within your heart, informing you of new powers.

In Lak’ech*  –  Denine

(*Mayan greeting:  “In you I see another me, in me another you.”)

– Sessions with Denine are ongoing in CT until August 13th when she departs to hold retreats in Canada until August 30th.  For sessions before 8/13 in CT, contact Denine now to schedule.

– The information on swan totems comes from the book “Animal Speak” by Ted Andrews.

    Sister Denine – Thank you for the gorgeous photos and lovely message, “awakening to the true beauty and power of Self.” Perfect birthday gift! Love you…

    Reminds me of a poem by Rilke which speaks of the awkwardness of the swan walking on land until he gets into the water and movesfrom awkwardness into a state of grace.

    Karen – Yes! I know that poem – the swan carries so many metaphors and messages for us….love that I am back close to them again. XO d
