Last week when I was sitting quietly under my trees, listening to my breathe and the resident birds, I heard a rustling noise.
It sounded like a small creature was running circles in the leaves.
I opened my eyes, curious as to whether a bird was having a 'dirt' bath in the leaf litter nearby, like my chickens used to do, but I couldn't see any bird on the ground and the noise had stopped abruptly.
I got up to investigate, thinking perhaps it would be a lizard.
And look who I found!
A beautiful bearded dragon.
I enjoyed looking at him as he lay completely still under my watchful eye, even his eyes did not flicker as a random ant or two crawled over him.
Eventually I called out to The Man in the House to come and look and we swapped places; I went inside to get my camera and he took watch!
The lizard was so beautiful, prehistoric even, camouflaged in his natural environment of dirt and leaves.
After a few photos my husband returned inside and I returned to my meditation spot under the trees. It was another 5 minutes or so until I heard the lizard run quickly into the cover of the tree.
Beautiful creature, thank you for joining us and letting our trees and yard be your home too, you are so welcome to this space.
Or should I say thank you for sharing this space with me?
I googled a message from the Bearded Dragon and this is what I found...
If a dragon-lizard presents themselves to you the time has come to detach from the ego and dive beyond the superficial.
What appears on the outside in appearance no longer holds value and you will soon become more detached from the shallow situations in your life.
Now and again it is required to be detached, to separate yourself from others, to succeed in what is necessary.
Lizard-dragons will also show you how to leave the past in the past. To move on and released your attachment to what has been. The story you tell yourself of the past no longer serves you.
Dragon lizards propose immediate change in one or more areas of your life. You may need to let go of old ideas, patterns, belief systems, habits, actions or lifestyle because they block the creation of new life and new beginnings. It is time to let go.
Lizard-Dragons prompts the need to go within and examine your present reality and then, move with confidence and utmost assuredness into a new chapter of your life.
