Yesterday when we were checking out our space, my daughter, Alchemy found a beautiful cicada exoskeleton on the doorstep of our new office space. Cicadas symbolize change, rebirth, metamorphosis and development.
Here's a bit about the sybolic meaning of cicadas from sunsigns.org :
"While your own voice is of utmost importance, the cicada also requires a balance of speaking and listening. Although they play their own individual songs, they do so in harmony with their community by listening to their surroundings and others around them. Are you warming your heart and the hearts of your community with positive expression and passion?"
How do I want to feel about my work, career and purpose?
I want to feel deeply connected to myself, my family, my friends, my clients, my community and to the divine. I want to feel energized by sharing my gifts and making what I do accessible to others. I want to feel balanced, both giving and receiving, taking care of my personal needs while putting myself out there for the greater good. I want to feel abundant, graciously accepting of money, gifts, helpers and magical opportunities. I want to feel lit up with childlike excitement and wonder. I want to feel golden, standing strong in my personal power, full of integrity, knowing that all good things come to me.
Like the cicada who has climbed out from the underground, I love to be warmed by the sun. I sing in harmony with my brothers and sisters. Listening intently, I find my place in the rhythm and magic of the universe. I shed my skin, unafraid of what is next.
