Story: Grasshopper Locust and the Magic of Leaping Forward
When I came home the other day, there was a HUGE grasshopper 4-5 inches tall on the sliding glass door to my office. I was totally amazed! I had never seen anything like it. I realized that surely this was a spirit power animal message for me and I must look it up—and then I promptly forgot all about it.
When I came home again it was stuck on the inside of my screen, unable to get out. I have no idea how that could have happened. I could only conclude that I was being forced to pay attention. It was clear that he was waiting for me to get the message because I would have to help this beast of an insect out of the screen door.
I did, I thanked him, and released him to go on his way. As he flew away, I realized that I had seen my first locust.
What was this message of the Locust? Excerpts from Shamanic Journey
“Grasshoppers/Locusts medicine includes jumping across space and time, astral travel, new leaps forward/leaps of faith/jumping without knowing where you will land and leaping over obstacles.
The power of sound and song is part of grasshopper’s medicine. It is an ancient method to use song to alter one’s consciousness and communicate with animals and spirits.
Grasshopper is the Chinese symbol of good luck and abundance.
Anyone with this power animal has been given the ability to take chances – to act on a whim and jump right in. For them things may not progress step by step – but rather extremely fast.
When taking that leap simply trust your own instincts on when to make the leaps. Listening to your inner voice and responding to it will lead you to positive outcomes.
Don’t be afraid to make that leap, remembering all the while that Grasshopper’s only ever jump forwards and never backwards!
The short-horned grasshopper is related to the locust, and the grasshopper locust is linked to astral travel, being able to leap to another reality where the real enigmas of life are.
If the grasshopper-locust leaps into your life, then you are being asked to take a leap of faith, to do something without fear – this will generally be something that you have avoided doing and is often linked to a change in direction on a grander scale – be it a relationship, career or change in self.”
This message is of profound importance to me at this time and I highlighted the parts that were of most importance to me.
I am contemplating a huge shift in my life and it is scary! I know what I am being directed to do, but it’s hard! I have no idea what the future will hold, and I will have to make a jump not knowing where I will land. Does this sound familiar?
I also work with sound as a practitioner of Tuning Fork Therapy®–another message of the grasshopper.
If you are contemplating a similar jump in your life, this message may be personal for you as well. Because you are reading this message from my blog indicates that you are ready to hear the message and perhaps make the shift that you are contemplating.
My mission is to be an Oracle for my tribe, my readers, and anyone who resonates with my words and intention. I find messages from spirit, synchronicity, and magic are everywhere if we only will look and then accept what we see as God in action—which it is.
You are being guided all the time. Call on your connection to Source/God in whatever name or names you want to give it for help and continued guidance. You are connected. Just listen.
I kept questioning my intuition and guidance because I was trying to be sure I am safe. This appearance of the grasshopper was one of three—yes three—messages that I was given on this same day. The Angels said that they are holding my hands all the way. And they will do this for you too.
