Homing Instinct turned out to be a process image about integration. In it I see a foundation made of Earth and the good bones of my experiences (see Listen To My Bones). And I see a doorway to a new life chapter, and I remember countless other passages that brought me forward. I note the messenger raven that represent spiritual Guidance. They’re big and bold right now, even in the moments I am tempted to lose courage. Finally, I trust that the fruit of my willingness to come home will be joyful contentment (see Fruit of Disappointment and Bluebird of Happiness).
What kinds of homecoming are calling to you, and how do you know? Maybe you are invited to come home to yourself in a fresh way… or make a courageous move… or let go into what is true… or remember the present moment as your Home… ?
