There is much change in my life right now. So much energy flowing all around, mostly positive. I don't know if I have just been stale for so long, or have been ignoring the Universe, knocking at my door, or taking me by the shoulders and trying to shake the life, my life, into me. I have a new vibrancy for existing. I am excited when I wake up. I no longer wake up with a sense of dread. The boy comes home for lunch, asks me how my day is going. Granted, it has only been about 2 hours since I have woken up, but I am already pleased and grateful for the day that I have had.

For the past month or so, right around when we started the long and aggravating journey of a home purchase, we had a most peculiar visitor. A grey tree frog presented itself to us. I get home late from work, usually at 11:30 at night, give or take. The Boy leaved the exterior light on, so that I don't trample on any scurrying toads that jump and hop in my path. Also, so that I can get to the front door without mishap. But I noticed one night, a small frog clinging to the side of my house, under the guiding light. I immediately ran into the house, like a 13 year old who just bought Justin Bieber tickets, and told The Boy to come see my discovery. The little tree frog, waiting amongst the many bugs the light attracts for its next meal.

It has been there every night since then. I refuse to touch it or try to capture it, in fear that it will not come back. That I will frighten it, disrespect it. I make sure the light is on until I go to bed, almost having a sense of security that it's out there, protecting me.

It gets better. I now have 2 grey tree frogs! I feel that my respect and patience for my little friend paid off. It trusted me enough to bring a friend that now sticks to my house at night. This happened for a week ago, and has happened till hopefully tonight, and the remainder of the nights that I am here.

I did some quick research on tree frog symbolism, and it excites me to no end.

A quick list of the frogs spiritual properties are
  • Luck
  • Purity
  • Rebirth
  • Renewal
  • Fertility
  • Healing
  • Metamorphosis
  • Transitions
  • Dreaming
  • Opportunity
  • Intermediary
Luck, rebirth, renewal, metamorphosis, transition, and opportunity, all speak out to me. These are the adjectives that describe me, my life, my energy, my being. These words describe me. Me now. My aura has changed. My outlook on life has changed. My quarters are about to change. I am rejuvenated. I am experiencing a great spurt of growth. I feel like there is so many wondrous things in store for me. My heart is pounding right now, that's how excited I am.

Every time I pass these little tree frogs, making camp right by my front door, I feel so blessed, and protected. So loved, that the Universe has sent me these 2 guardians. The Universe is looking out for me.

How is the Universe looking out for you? Do you have sacred animal spirits watching over you?
