Last week on Facebook people put up their hands wanting to read Swan’s Message, below is the chapter dedicated to Swans from my manuscript FOOTSTEPS by Torino Wolfhound & the Animal Kingdom – (author) Faye Rogers.
[From Torino Wolfhound] The Bird Kingdom I have already shared about beautiful Birds and discovery. I have shared messages relating to Eagle & Dove, also Owl and Penguin messages, I am going to share further on Birds.
As Footsteps is a journey book the various Bird species I have shared about has been steps forward, all messages tie in together, all messages add more heightened awareness. I would love to share about all species of beautiful Birds, but this isn’t practical as it would take many many decades of sharing of words and messages to capture all that is of the Bird Kingdom.
I hope my messages keep you spellbound so that you wish to discover more about the little Birds that might gather in your garden or Birds that you might sight at different places that you visit.
Today I am ready to share about Swans – let us look at the energy of Swans – beautiful majestic regal Swans. Swans are the King and Queen of the Bird Kingdom – their energy is associated with water energy so that there is fluidity and movement always. Even the way Swan drapes their neck signifies something so beautiful. Even the way Swan flies without much effort for a Bird their size but also the shape that they outline in the sky signifies something so beautiful and breath taking. When Swans are flying they are seeking – they are open to visions – visions of youth, visions of joy, visions of calmness. Watch out for those ‘nasty’ Swan beaks as they do have the habit of biting; Swans are greatly protective – their essence is of protection.
From the mystery of the wonderful children’s tale ‘Ugly Duckling’ and how a Cygnet can transform into a beautiful Swan but on the journey Ugly Duckling had much to discover about the brutality of life but then transformed into the beauty of life – powerful messages captured in a simple tale – incredibly powerful message.
Also interesting that Cygnus Constellation is called after Swan due to the shape of the constellation has captured Swan – powerful stuff! And you might be shaking your head wondering where I am going with this message but shouldn’t the King and Queen of the Bird Kingdom be seen as powerful and shouldn’t they take on the form of a Constellation. Also understand that there are little chances in life that these sightings in the night sky are also evident on earth; that one species is here for special reasons but also they have captured the essence of a special constellation.
Swans will generally mate for life and this carries the essence of fidelity. I call on Swan to share their own message………
“Dear people, we are great gifts to this world. We share our essence with the world and what is the world – do ask yourself this – is your world narrow and confined or is your world broad and expansive?
We are Birds that are associated with royalty and much has been written about us, and there is great truth in many of the writings shared about us because behind the writings there are important messages – do seek messages in all that you read, all that you sight, and allow the messages to relate to your own energy.
Call on Swan Medicine when you desire grace, fidelity and transformation.
Swans are beautiful Birds, we are the King and Queen of Birds whereas Eagles are Power Birds and they are different due to their association with Sun Energy whereas Swans are associated with Water Energy. And yes of course Eagles are prey birds, but let’s not get too pedantic with the messages that are shared, be in your heart, and be receptive to receiving, be open and read on………
When Swan comes to support you in your journey know that you are blessed with grace, with fidelity and transformation.
Do you feel heavy and afraid? Call on Swan who with their grace can help you wade through the obstacles of life.
Fidelity is truth and this is truth to yourself – fidelity is much more than this as it can also be fidelity in all relationships so therefore when you need alliance with another call on Swan to assist.
Transformation, there is much written about the Ugly Duckling who turned into a beautiful Swan. Young Swans do not exhibit the grace in form as an adult Swan so therefore this is Swan’s essence – transformation by finding grace and beauty within yourself.
To find your own true beauty to discover your true self Swan is able to bridge the gap between the reality of your physical body and reality of your spiritual body so therefore Swan is a powerful Power Animal to help you discover your true self of beauty.”
Oh, there are many legends involving beautiful Swans and I will casually outline a few……
In Greek Mythology Leda and the Swan and the conception of Helen of Troy are well known legends. Ireland there is the legend of Children of the Lir. In Hinduism the Goddess Saraswati who is the Goddess of Knowledge is portrayed sometimes riding a Swan or a Swan resting by her feet. In the Vedic literature people who have attained great wisdom are sometimes called Paramahamsa [‘Great Swan’] due to their ability to travel between various spiritual worlds. Swan’s essence is even captured in one of the most beautiful ballet created ‘Swan Lake’; you will maybe be familiar with this ballet of the beautiful Princess Odette turned into a Swan by an evil sorcerer’s curse who is Swan by day and human by night, this beautiful ballet depicts loves struggles due to others but also undying love, of choices made due to loving another so brightly, of breaking the spell and ascending to heaven of eternity.
When one thinks of Swans one thinks of the beautiful White Mute Swan but also we must not forget the Black Swan. These magical Birds that are found throughout Australia are also native to New Zealand and nowadays the Black Swan also resides in many other countries as they have been exported due to their beauty, their majestic presence, their colour of density so dark and what does this advice one of? The Black Swan still carries the same symbolism of the White Swan but also, they carry mystery, they carry great power, they are also connected greatly with the great Swan constellation. The White Swan also has extra energy of youth, and the Black Swan has extra energy of knowing – think about what I have just shared – youth isn’t ignorance but youth is fresh pure and beautiful and extra knowing is mysticism the allure of the unknown – and that is the difference between the White and Black Swans that honour our planet with their graceful forms and energy of specialness.
Three days ago [12th December] I shared on Facebook the postings about the little kitten in Southland [New Zealand] who was cruelly stoned to death by a small group of teenagers. I shared the video in the hope that it would lead to the offenders to stop them harming others, and they in turn need counseling or their own home situations looked at in case their home situation has caused them to carry out such a horrific act. And then on the [13th December] I shared the update that the offenders had been found and were aged between 11 years & 16 years of age.
Since viewing the video, I have held the little precious kitten in love, light & healing. Also I have had people messaging me asking if I could share a blessing for the kitten and for the situation, and because of this I asked beautiful Hero Wolfhound (who is female) if she would share divine words of love that would assist with the suffering of others and Hero has given us an exercise to create more light, more caring that we can then share with others. Thank you sweetheart Hero.
From Hero “If the entire world of humans could plug into their heart energy, into their compassionate caring emotional heart and the heart energy because of the numbers involved would be amplified and uplifting, and the brilliance of light shining would be similar to what would be viewed from a polished faceted diamond that is capturing every Ray of Light, and this Ray of Light would allow deep healing and restoration for ALL that is of this planet.
Because the entire world of humans at this stage of their own evolution are not quite ready to plug into their own brilliance of light, then you as ONE can actually do this, and your own energy will magnify, and you can create a Bridge of Light that you then can forward to situations: of discord, of cruelty, of misjustice and the more that are involved in creating the Bridge of Light for another or for a situation then the more the energy will be amplified and magnified.
You will have your own special sacred way of creating your Bridge of Light, but if you need a little bit of guidance then I will guide you with gentle words. …….
Position yourself wherever you wish to be, but I assume you will be sitting in front of your computer on a chair whilst you are reading my words, but you can do this exercise wherever you wish too, you can be sitting or lying down and some of the words that will follow you can use your imagination and sense energetically regardless of your pose.
My words for you to create more light, to create a Bridge of Light. ………
Feel your feet solidly on the floor, feel your backbone, and sense a beam of light travelling in your backbone and this beam of light is like the DNA shape which is actually many infinity symbols that are locked together, and the Ray of Light is twirling dancing splendidly through your backbone, and this beautiful liberating Ray of Light is allowing you to feel within, to associate with your own heart essence. This Ray of Light is uplifting you, and you are finding incredible deep peace within yourself. Whilst you are feeling experiencing the Ray of Light travelling twirling dancing through your spine and then sense your energy of compassion, and allow your own heart energy to be held in Wings of Love, and the Wings of Love are allowing your heart energy to travel to where it must go.
Send this energy of love caring compassion to whoever needs this and this could be an animal that has been mistreated, this could be to a human who needs your support, this could be to someone who is ill, this could be to a community that needs your support, this could be to a species that needs your support, this could be to the landscape, this could be to the waterways, this could be to the trees, this could be to the sky that surrounds you, this could be to a project that will bring good to many, this could be to a cause that you are involved in, this could be to corruption that is affecting one or affecting many, this could be to governing politics that are making choices that are not for the well-being of the masses… Just allow this divine exercise to be, do not try and stifle or overthink just let it happen.
AND DO NOT FORGET TO DO THIS SIMPLE EXERCISE FOR YOURSELF: WHEN YOU ARE FEELING OVERBURDENED, OR IF LIFE IS TOO COMPLEX, OR YOU ARE FULL OF SADNESS RELATING TO YOUR OWN LIFE, OR SADNESS BECAUSE OF ACTIONS OF OTHERS, THEN FEEL YOUR OWN GINORMOUS RAY OF LIGHT TRAVELLING TWIRLING DANCING WITHIN YOUR SPINE AND THEN FEEL YOUR COMPASSIONATE HEART AND ALLOW YOUR OWN ENERGY TO BE ENFOLDED IN YOUR OWN WINGS OF LOVE.”
