Hawk dreams, personally speaking, are messages from
the Divine. Like Horus or Mercury, the Hawk brings messages from a higher realm.
The hawk through history is also connected to many anicent dieties,
check the list below to get an idea of the wide range. Search Ancient Egyptian tomb paintings and you will find images
of winged goddesses. The Egyptian notion of the soul or "ba" is also winged like a raptor. What we have
here is a connection to flight, freedom, spirit, Divine, going higher, a higher perspective.
The hawk's keen eyesight cannot be ignored, nor the acute hearing.
Some mate for life, devoted parents. Their soaring flight and stealth dives are magnificient. And I've also witnessed
several chicks (and a couple of roosters too!) get plucked from our garden by a resident Broad Wing. They are highly
intelligent, patient, stealth, observant, calculating...when they appear in your dreams, you have much to investigate.
Hawk asks you to step back and take a higher look at what is happening in your life. Hawk brings new perspective, insight,

"Clear-sightedness; being observant. Far-memory, or recalling past lives. A message from spirit; omens
and dreams.Over-coming problems. Taking advantage of an opportunity. The cry of a hawk in a mediation is a warning of upcoming
situations that will require boldness and decisiveness. Courage, defense, wisdom, illumination, new life, creativity, truth, experience.
Getting a large over-view so you can make
better decisions." Animal Magick, D.J. Conway

The Hawk can be traced back to Anicent Egyptian
dieties such as Horus, Ptah, Rehu, Seker, and Amenti. A Greek messenger to Apollo, Hermes or Mercury
as well as the goddess Circe are all aspects of Hawk. The Pueblo called the Red-Tailed as red eagle and the feathers
were used in healing ceremonies. The Celtic traditions name the oldest creature the Hawk of Achill, a messenger between
our world and the Otherworlds; graced above all birds with more skill and strength.
