Celebrating Peacock Symbolism
Today is National Bird Day
I woke up and sat at my altar at 4:44 am this morning.
I learned that today is National Bird Day.
I appreciate that I love looking out the window or up when I am outdoors… and usually notice and appreciate the trees and birds.
On December 20th, I was working on pictures for my website and brand… and… you guessed correctly… a peacock picture popped up on my first search.
On December 29th, I was reflecting on my business and worked with one of my many beautiful card decks. Intuitively, I pulled the Peacock card.
I am all about the power of our words, messages and signs that appear in our lives, the power of believing that all things come when we are stress free and ready to receive, and above all trusting our process and allowing the Universe to do its magic of conspiring on our behalf. My tagline for my business is Believe. Conceive. Receive. Achieve. And… I often say “Faith, Trust, and Fairy Dust.”
So… it is rather affirming and serendipitous that the peacock has been showing up for me within the last 3 weeks.
Peacock, I hear you, I see you, I feel you, I sense you.
“Peacock symbolism: Vision, Self Expression, Spirituality, Awakening, Integrity, Freedom, Guidance, Protection, & Watchfulness.
In Greco-Roman mythology the Peacock tail has the “eyes” of the stars. In Hinduism, the Peacock is associated with Lakshmi who represents patience, kindness and luck. In Persia the Peacock is seen as a guardian to royalty, and is often seen in engravings upon their thrones. The Peacock represents resurrection, renewal and immortality within the spiritual teachings of Christianity. Themes of renewal are also linked to alchemical traditions too, as many schools of thought compare the resurrecting phoenix to the modern-day Peacock.
The Peacock has been linked to Kuan Yin, the deity that is supposedly the creator of the beautiful colors of the Peacock’s signature tail feathers. Legend tells us Kuan Yin could have been immortal but stayed because she wished to aid humanity in their spiritual evolution. Kuan Yin taught people, through her own compassionate spirit, to live together as friends. When she decided to go to the heavens she appointed a guardian to keep the earth peaceful. She called a bird, with dull brown feathers, to her. She rubbed her face and brushed her hands down the length of its feathers, which created a kaleidoscope of colors and beautiful eyes on the end of each long feather. The Peacock feathers remind us that Kuan Yin is compassionately watching over us.
Peacock energy can help you on your spiritual path and breathe new life into your walk of faith. The Peacock is a symbol of the compassion of Kuan Yin and the integrity that is possible in all areas of life and Self. It is the watcher of all. Remember, the cry of the Peacock is a call to Kuan Yin to help her people. The Peacock is a reminder to all of us to show our true colors.” [Source]
