Morning Musing – Mosquito Wisdom
I believe nothing is random, so this morning’s musing is based on an actual event rather than an intuitive vision. I hope you find it helpful today or whatever day you come upon it. Nice to know that mosquitos are good for something huh?
It was very late and I was trying to fall asleep. I would close my eyes and begin to drift off, only to be awakened by the sound of a mosquito buzzing in my ear. I would smack where the sound was coming from hoping to catch it unaware, only to have the sound begin again a few moments later. I turned on the light and looked around. No mosquito. I stayed very still and waited to see if it would appear. No mosquito. Was I dreaming it? I turned off the light and attempted sleep again. Just as I was drifting off, the loud insistent buzzing began again! I slapped at the sound with no result. Frustrated, I turned on the lights. I asked the Angels to help me, starting to wonder if I had a ghost mosquito visiting or if I was developing an ear problem. Finally, frustrated, I reached for my iPad on the floor, figuring I might as well do some writing since I clearly wasn’t going to be sleeping. And there it was! I caught it, ending the mosquito torture for the night.
If nothing is random, then why had the mosquito found its way into my room that night? I looked it up in my Animal-Speak Pocket Guide (Ted Andrews) and found that the keynote for mosquito is self-worth. It mentions protecting myself from attacks on my self-worth. As I pondered this, I realized that I had been feeling insecure. Circumstances had led to me getting overloaded and worn down which tends to lead to feeling less than stellar about myself. So how could I protect myself from this? I thought of what had just happened. Using my own hands hadn’t worked. Turning on the light hadn’t worked. It was only when I asked the Angels to help me that the situation was resolved.
Intention and Prayer…
Angels, I call to you now. Help me to love myself and have the highest value on who I am and what I am becoming. Help me to be free of attacks by my ego or whatever is prompting my feelings of being unloved. Heal me, love me, inspire me, and guide me. I trust you and thank you for your support. I wait for your Divine guidance to find my way home to myself.
Have a beautiful mosquito-free day!
