As The Birds Of The Air

I recently lost an old friend of mine. We had been friends since 1994. We met in the car business and he got me into more stuff than I care to remember. Through the years like many friends, he has faded in and out of my life. Some years ago he got on social media and made many comments on my posts. I would always acknowledge him and say something generic. But his last 3 comments on my posts I felt I needed to say more. The 3 most important words I could ever say to him were, “I love you”. If you know me personally, you know that I am not one to just say that on social media to the opposite sex. I never want to misconstrue my intentions or my words. I felt so strongly that I needed to tell my friend that I loved him that I told him 3 times. The last time I told him “I Love You” was on a Wednesday and he passed the next day. When I got the news, I said “thank you Jesus that I acted on my energy and what my heart and soul felt.” No regrets!

Trusting our instincts, practicing our faith, and acting on our energy should be equivalent to the bird in the air that sees a tree, a branch, a twig and decides to land on it. He’s never landed on that twig or branch before but he trusts it. He trusts that the branch is going to support him and he also trusts that branch so much that he builds his nest on it for not only him but his family. Trees fall every day, branches and twigs break every hour but the one that the bird lands on, does not because he has faith and he knows he can trust it. If the birds of the air can trust, believe, have faith, and act on their intuition then why can’t we do the same? I believe it’s the fear from our wounds that speak louder than our intuition. We have got to dismiss the old programming. That stuff we were raised on is the past and it no longer exists. Dismiss the fears that were taught in your upbringing. Act on whatever you feel that is going to bring you closer to your purpose, your gift, and speak positivity in someone’s life.
