Some pieces of art really move me. They touch me deep in my soul. This is one such piece. Created by Roy Henry Vickers, a First Nation artist in the Tofino area of Vancouver Island, BC, Canada, it spoke to my heart in April 2016. Little did I know the impact it would have on my life.
Vickers says of this piece he created: “Eagle Heart is another one of those magic, inspired creations that comes along one day. This one came thinking of Valentine’s Day 2012, and it was inspired by commen
ts from fans about a Valentine design that I had created.”
He continues by sharing this: “Eagles mate for life and are a symbol of vision. The courtship and mating ritual of eagles is breathtaking when you see them lock talons high in the sky and spin to the earth in this incredible aerial dance. They eventually separate to rise to greater heights and do this dance all over again. These were the thoughts that inspired this creation. I wanted something different for a Valentine’s image this year and out of this desire came: EAGLE HEART.”
I purchased this piece as a symbol of the deep love I share with my Soul Mate, Hilory. We have gone through many health challenges together, some were supposed to end in death. We celebrate 28 years together this year.
The surprising thing is a move we did last year to the Pacific Northwest. In 2016 we still planned to live in California all our lives. Yet, shortly thereafter, life circumstances changed. We decided to move. Now at the waters edge of Dungeness Bay across the Strait of Juan de Fuca from Vancouver Island, Canada, and Victoria Harbour, we have these incredible Bald Eagles as our neighbors.
Today, Valentine’s Day 2019, two Bald Eagles landed in a tree outside our bedroom window. Perched together, they posed for an hour for me while I talked to them.
Images are powerful. They connect deep to your soul, moving you towards their reality. What are the images surrounding you? What are they telling you? Are they really what you want? Now is a good time to analyze each piece of art. Make sure they are setting the intentions to manifest your heart’s desire.
