Allow Them to Find Their Wings

A metaphor  to see how we can allow others to find their wings. I believe that we can apply these lessons to all relationships.

The Bald Eagle

A bald eagle egg is slightly smaller than a domestic goose egg. The chick will measure 4 to 5 inches at hatching and weigh only a matter of ounces.

Sometimes the adults will force the eaglets to fly. When chicks leave the nest they usually glide to a nearby tree or stump, returning to the nest tree frequently and continuing to be fed by the adults.  Eaglets will stay close to the nest and nest tree during the first few weeks after fledging. Within one month after fledging, eaglets will soar and drift over the water.

Chicks Leaving the Nest

As the chicks develop their flight skills they harass the adults and try to take fish from them. This behavior helps eaglets learn to forage and be independent and will last into September. At 17 to 23 weeks of age, the bond between the adults and their young fades and the adults no longer tolerate harassment from their offspring. This is time when the young eagles leave the territory, following the prevailing winds to more northerly shorelines and water bodies in search of good feeding grounds.

Youth to Adult-Mortality rate is 50%

The young eagle will spend the next 4 years of its life wandering across eastern North America looking for summering and wintering areas where food is accessible.  When it begins to mature at age 4, an eagle seeks a mate and establishes a territory. The territory is usually located within 250 miles of the nest where the eagle was hatched.  (Taken from the Fish & Wildlife.gov site)

When setting boundaries the oil of Clarity helps us see what to do.  We then  stand back and allow the wings to develop. Our Believe oil is a good support for this step.  When they soar the beautiful oil of Joy sweetens the  journey.



This Is Quite the Journey

The day was incredible.  I watched him face each challenge with calm assurance and it was humbling. I observed him interacting with the customer service reps with respect and dignity. The greatest miracle of the day was when he was told to, “..walk over to that truck and say Hi to your brother.”  I’ll never forget that moment.  It only took 27 years for this man to realize how much he is loved and how great he is. I am in awe of this man, my son.

The oils of the day were Valor, Joy, and Harmony.  These oils kept me grounded and didn’t overwhelm him.
