A Fox Tale
this really happened........
I had been feeling disenchanted with life. The magic seemed to have slipped away and I felt disconnected from my spirit. I was out walking one cold morning about a month ago. I thought to myself that I hadn't seen a fox in a long time, maybe ten years or more. And that I'd love to see one again. When I got home I began to paint a fox which is unusual for me. Besides my previous painting I never paint foxes. But something inside of me was intuitively in need of fox energy. I believe in animal totems and animal spirit guides and I believe each animal has a different gift and message to share. I was very involved in painting this piece the week I painted it. A few days after I finished painting her I went out for another walk. On the path in the distance I saw something running towards me. I didn't know what it was at first but when it got closer I couldn't believe my eyes. A fox was running toward me! She ran up to me and took my breath away. When she was about a foot away from me she stopped and we just looked at each other. Then she ran off in the woods and disappeared. After our encounter I instantly felt my joy and spirit return to me, I felt connected again. This beautiful fox gave me such a precious gift. She reminded me not to take life so seriously, she reminded me to be playful, she reminded me to be mischievous, and she reminded me that there is magic and enchantment in the world. She reminded me of my true nature and my connection to the divine in all things. She reminded me when I forgot.
Magic and Love,
