Things at Panacea are never boring. On what was another beautiful day in paradise, Abad (our guy who works with us during the day) discovered a gray hawk stuck in some barbed wire up above the cabinas. Peter and Abad were able to cut the hawk out of the wire and get him to the vet. Carla (our wonderful vet) gave him stitches, antibiotics and food. After two days, we were able to bring him home and release him.
We had been hearing his partner (hawks do mate for life) calling for him since he became stuck in the barbed wire fence. Since he has been released, we have seen one of them (didn’t quite catch which one) flying overhead bringing food to what sounds like a couple baby hawks. We were so happy to have been able to help him rejoin his family again!
Whenever an animal like this comes to us on the mountain, we also look for the deeper meaning behind the event. From the website, Spirit Animals & Animal Totems, we found this:
When you have the hawk as a spirit animal, you may have an inclination towards using the power of vision and intuition in your daily life. The hawk totem provides wisdom about seeing situations from a higher perspective, using the power of observation, and focusing on the task at hand. It’s a good companion to develop spiritual awareness.
We think it is no accident that we had the hawk come to Panacea! For those of you who have been here, you know that we often will hear them calling in the ravine up by the rancho when we do yoga in the mornings. May the call of the hawk help you sharpen your intuition and awareness.
