The spirit of hawk totem brings with it many different meanings. If the hawk totem animal has entered your life recently take a moment to stop and reflect on some of the following messages:
One of the greatest gifts a Hawk totem person can give the world is their visions of a better and brighter future. Visionaries are always ahead of their time and it’s not easy seeing what other totem animal people are not ready to see.
If you are a Hawk spirit animal yourself, understand that this Spirit animal can give you a special task to hold the energy of what could be, of potentials that are waiting to be envisioned. Seek out other people who can support you in your life and never allow others to cause you to lose sight of what is really important to you.
Hawk totem people have their own unique challenges in life. As messengers, Hawk spirit animal must share their insight with others. Sometimes the messages may not be what the other person really wants to hear and yet the Hawk totem feels duty bound to relay the message, no matter the consequences.
It is important however that Hawk totem people do be aware of how they are presenting the messages they receive. They need more than many others to try and deliver the messages as gently as they can, only becoming more forceful if their inner spirit guidance absolutely says it is needed. Sometimes simply thinking through for a time what needs to be said can help Hawk animal people find just the right words to use that will make all the difference and in this they should be encouraged to take their time and soar above for a while before speaking their truth.
Hawk totem people, like many who carry strong predator animal totems, may be shunned by others who sense and fear their inner power. Others may sense that this is a person who can see straight through them and as many people think in terms of judging things as being good or bad, they are afraid that the Hawk spirit will see who they “really” are and so they strike first in an attempt to keep the Hawk animal at bay. Hawk totem needs to learn how to veil their energy spirit somewhat, not as an attempt to deceive others but to allow people to get to know them and understand that Hawk Spirit has no interest in judging others. Often these people have seen so much of the best and worst in life that they find they have no need to judge.
Some Hawk spirit animal people may have a tendency, because of their vast ability to see clear through to the heart of things, to become an arrogant totem animal symbol. This should be avoided because it keeps them earthbound and causes interpersonal conflicts! This can start as confusion on the part of the Hawk totem person who cannot understand why others seem less aware of the larger picture and their own issues. It is important that people with the Hawk totem understand that others are not as well developed yet in these areas and avoid blurting out what they see and know without thinking of how it may impact another person.
