The eagle is also the patron animal of Zeus In particular, Zeus was said to have taken the form of an eagle in order to abduct Ganymede(the loveliest born of the race of mortals) and there are numerous artistic depictions of the Eagle Zeus bearing Ganymede aloft. Zeus granted Ganymede eternal youth and immortality and offered him the office of cup bearer to the gods in Olympus.
Eagle is one of the guardian spirit animals; it is probably one of the best known power animals along with the wolf. The eagle although one of the biggest birds of prey while on land, is one of the most graceful birds to watch in flight. They are masters of the sky and their agility and maneuverability is second to none. Do you ever wonder what it must be like to just soar through the skies, floating with wings, the freedom that you would feel? Eagle’s message is of course about soaring but it is also about looking within, unless one looks within to find the place to soar there is no point in having wings. Eagle can see the tiniest little mouse from a great height in the skies, you too can see into the distance with your psychic eye.
Trust yourself to break free from the mundane and the ordinary; do not try to fit in where you do not belong. If you try to hide the magnificent light within you then you lose the very thing that makes you unique. Close your eyes and fly with eagle, feel the breeze in your hair, see the ground beneath you, the tops of the mountains and fly towards the sun. Feel the warmth of the sun coming towards you filling you with love and warmth. This is the power of eagle, if you trust eagle to accompany you on your inner journey he can fly with you to places you could never imagine. All knowledge is found within, when you begin to realise this, you will also know the grace of gliding through life and the heights of spirituality that very few reach.
Eagle can help you feel the atoms, vibrations and frequency of your energy while you are soaring in your quest for spiritual experiences and enlightenment. Eagle eyes are like spiritual eyes, they see beyond the obvious. Trust eagle to help you in your dreams to fly to new adventures and experiences. The eagle helps us fly and the wolf keeps us grounded we need to be able to find the balance between two worlds. We need to access the spiritual while at the same time being grounded in this world.
As powerful as eagle is it still looks over it's shoulder just before it goes in for it's prey. You like the eagle need to be more confident in how powerful you really are. Just because we can't see our wings doesn't mean they don't exist. You need to remember that this existence is temporary and is not permanent. Without a physical body our spirit is capable of anything we can imagine, if we can think it then we can make it happen.
