Swallow Spirit Animal

If the Swallow comes to you or you identify with this beautiful creature, you have ingenuity, determination and innate skills that will help capture what is necessary for you to succeed. Swallows are masters of the air and will instruct you how to move with the utmost grace, agility and style. Are you streaming with the flow of thoughts and ideals? Are you working in cooperation with others? Swallow reveals how love and communication, paired with trust, can do the most good. It is time to renew the environment around you and ride the favorable air currents and tailwinds that will assist you to stay positively motivated around anything that comes your way.

Related to the legendary Thunderbird, this magnificent being maneuvers through life easily. The Chinese used to time the precise dates of the equinoxes to their arrival and departure. Swallow warns of storms in life and teaches you about weathering difficulties as a unit; with her you are never alone.

From Swallow you learn to release the negative and build the positive; to leave the old and dire ways behind and move into each new day, as if it were a new life; to build upon each new moment with objectivity. By working together, we will create a safer, happier, more intelligent world for everyone to build a nest.

Swallow teaches that the ordinary pace of life should not consume you. Instead, you should rise above the hardships and move forward no matter what life presents. He helps you to see things for what they really are, without allowing aspects of life experiences to bog you down. With her guidance, you are free to live among friends and family peacefully with a well guided intuition.

Having Swallow in your power animals means that you can push your way through anything. Her gift is to help you to ride out the emotional storms and make good self progress with others. No one will be left behind when Swallow swoops in; all are one. When we welcome the gifts of Spirit Swallow we accept, encourage and receive a more meaningful existence.

Spirit Swallow

You stole the fire from the sun
Your winged manifest expressed
Brings purity to darkenedness

You bring with you a light loved one
To shine on earth in loveliness
You stole the fire from the sun
Your winged manifest expressed

Your feathers fork-like have become
You soar with ease and happiness
To free us from our loneliness
You stole the fire from the sun
Your winged manifest expressed
Brings purity to darkenedness

A swallow nesting on our home
Will teach us to be swiftly heard
By using wisdom with our words

In gracefulness you deeply roam
With eyes of every Angel bird
A swallow nesting on our home
Will teach us to be swiftly heard

To rise above is to be shown
That life can often be absurd
And if emotions should be stirred
A swallow nesting on our home
Will teach us to be swiftly heard
By using wisdom with our words

To be objective is the key
Perspective must not be mundane
The spirit cannot be constrained

Distance will help you see clearly
The answers that will soon explain
To be objective is the key
Perspective must not be mundane

Create a loving energy
That’s easy for you to maintain
And you will reach a higher plane
To be objective is the key
Perspective must not be mundane
The spirit cannot be constrained

With knowledge of divinity
Guide us dear Swallow as we grow
Enlighten us to what we know

As days pass by forgetfully
We misplace insights we behold
With knowledge of divinity
Guide us dear Swallow as we grow

The song you sing of trinity
With holy magic you bestow
All Saints and Gurus overflow
With knowledge of divinity
Guide us dear Swallow as we grow
Enlighten us to what we know
