Vultures Stand For the Death of Old and Birth of New

I love vultures/turkey buzzards! I love the way they can soar on the thermals and go for almost ever without flapping their wings. No they are not pretty birds, but they serve a huge purpose in the cycle of life, both in the physical and spiritual sense.

It the physical realm, they are Gods clean up crew, along with the insects and other animals that feed off of already expired life beings.

In the spiritual sense they stand for the death of one part of your life and the birth of the next step. When ever I see  vulture/buzzard, I know I am doing well because I am growing spiritually.

I also know that my Grandfather is watching over me. When a vulture flies directly over my head, I KNOW it is him. Reminding me that I am not alone and that he is watching over me. It always brings great joy to my heart and a smile to my face and thoughts. So whenever this happens, I smile and say "HI POP". So they have a very special meaning for me. I am very grateful whenever I see them.

Dedicated to the love and memory of my POP, who I greatly miss in the physical sense.

There is a book called animal speak that gives the meaning for each animal. She may want to look and see if she can find information on the Raven. There are also on line sites that may help.
