The Nature Of Things – Grasshopper

The other evening, my spouse came in from the backyard and sat down in the dining room. I joined him and engaged in conversation. A few moments passed and suddenly a bug flew from his direction, startling both us. The bug landed on the knob of a nearby server and remained there for our further inspection. “What is it?” asked my husband, “it’s a grasshopper” I replied. I then carefully cupped the insect in my hands and released it outside. Shortly after I returned, my husband noticed that the grasshopper was now on the elbow of my sleeve. I again released it outdoors, this time for good.

OK, nature spirits, I hear you loud and clear. This had to be a message for both of us. So I looked it up and here is what I found.

If Grasshopper has sprung into your life:

grasshopperYou are being asked to take a leap of faith. Just go ahead and do it without knowing the outcome. Usually this is something that you have avoided doing and is often linked to a large scale change in direction. This can be a change in relationship, career or a change in yourself. Know that you have the wisdom that you need to get past any obstacles in an efficient manner. For the most part all possible outcomes will be positive. *

Ironically, we have been seriously considering moving six states south, but are fearful of the risks involved.
