The essence of healing and wisdom are symbolized by the strength, superior vision and flight of the great eagle. True peace and joy comes from what we hold within, which we can give freely to everyone around us. The eagle shows us the warmth and love that emanates from Grandfather Sun. We are able to walk and love in the shadows as much as in the magnificent sun. The eagle is our spiritual protector, taking our deepest prayers and wishes up into the universe. Understanding, wisdom, knowledge and healing enable us to rise above the material so that we can feel and connect with our Spirit Guides.
