Daily Angel Oracle Card: Hawk ~ Focus, from the Power Animal Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer
Hawk ~ Focus: “Choose Your Priorities; and eliminate all distractions.”
“Look at all the choices before you, and select one to which you are willing to give your passionate attention. Once you decide, the right action to take becomes immediately apparent, and Life supports you and provides what you need. You can then arrange all your priorities around that which you have chosen. Set personal boundaries and practice self-care when and where needed. If you do not do this, you can easily get overwhelmed and fragmented, and your power will become scattered and diffused.
Let go of all those habitual diversions that you have made so important. It is time to go to work on the priority you chose and let it flow. The practice of staying focused is in itself a mediation, and this is how you can best express the gifts of service you have to offer to the world and to your Creator.
Messenger; Perspective; Detachment; Swiftness.”*

Do you know what you want? Can you list it in full dynamic detail? Or do you feel more comfortable listing the things that you don’t want? When thinking about what you want, are you able to separate out just you and your dreams and desires? Or do you get wrapped up in what other people want for you, or how your wants would affect them? What about judgement? Are you concerned with what people might think of your choices, is that a factor in painting the perfect picture of your reality?
What if you took all those distractions away and just focused solely on what you would love to create for your own life. Letting go of the worries, the judgement, the fear. Letting go of how it would affect those who have expectations of you. Letting your imagination run wild…. What would that look like? How would it feel?
Now, can you hone it down into several focused goals? Can you select a few action steps to get you going in the right direction, even if they are tiny to start? Can you alter your perception of your current reality to allow space for the new one to integrate? Breathe it into existence?
Decide right now, to take one step each day towards your dreams, no matter what. Be courageous; be direct and most importantly, be authentic to you. Own this new reality, as you let these dreams fly free from your Heart and Soul. They are your lifeline, your bridge to fulfilling your Soul’s purpose.
But remember: Happiness is found in the here and now. When you are focusing on your dreams, you are manifesting what you want to create. Do it with a smile. Do it with joy and enthusiasm and a light heart. For in doing so, you root yourself in this joy and create a magnet for more. You also acknowledge that joy can be found in the now, and is not something that must be chased after… residing in the future.
What are you focused on creating?
