I just watched a murmuration this week, not as big as the video below, but still. I am always in awe by this.
I think it’s an amazing example of working together harmoniously. It’s like creating music together, but without the conductor. They tune into each other and create this flow. I know it’s because of protection against predators, but still I can’t help feeling they do this for so much more, just this connecting to each other.
Yesterday I had a harp lesson and my harpsister/soulfriend joined me and we played this beautiful song together. That also was all about connecting to each other, just listening, feeling, really connect. I felt the image of the murmuration again.
In light of what is happening all over the world, wouldn’t it be amazing if we just connected to each other as the starlings do. Create beauty and music together instead of hatred and death.
Later that day I was waiting for the bus to take me home when a single starling sat down near to me and started talking to me. I saw the people around me looking at this, maybe they didn’t realise they were seeing an animal talk happening live, but the starling clearly told me to spread this message. To let people know about their medicine. This is what they are here to teach us. This amazing way of working together, without a clear leader. Just tapping into each others energy and making this beautiful song of life……
And so, here’s it is…. Starlings message….
