Villoldo, Dr Alberto - The Eagle archetype
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Soul Retrieval – Dr Alberto Villoldo
The eagle is a powerful spirit animal that symbolises foresight clarity and vision. The shaman understands that eagle energy helps us to perceive the entire panorama of life without becoming bogged down in its myriad of tiny details. Eagle energy can assist us in finding the guiding vision of our lives by looking into the past and the future, helping us understand both where we came from and who we’re becoming.
The eagle gives us wings to soar up to high peaks, far above our trivial day to day struggles. It has tremendous vision – with six times the visual acuity of human, this incredible bird can spot a mouse in a clump of brush from 1,500 feet up in the air. It can see the big picture and swoop down and take what it needs with unhesitating precision…………..
The eagle shows us that we can’t satisfy our emotional needs with material things and that there’s a spiritual solution to every problem. On the wings of the eagle we rise above our day to day struggles, gain perspective and see things as they really are.
