As we can invoke traditional angels to
help us in any given situation, we
can call on a specific bird whenever
we feel we need the attributes of
that bird’s message to help us through
a particular point in our lives. What
bird do you need? How do you call it?
What if more than one comes?

An example of asking for a bird with a
special attribute is, say, a situation
arises where you need to be more trusting:
sit quietly, close your eyes, and take three
deep breaths to relax. Picture a cuckoo in
your mind and ask the cuckoo to help you to
be more trusting in that situation. Know
that help is forthcoming, and then thank
the cuckoo for its help.

Similarly, if you are needing strength in
a given situation, call on an eagle in
the same way; if you are needing to
forgive someone, call on a hummingbird to
help you; if you are needing to be more
practical and grounded, call on an ostrich,
and so on.

If you have difficulty visualizing a
particular bird, or the bird whose help
you require is not found in your country
and you have no idea what it looks like,
it doesn’t matter, because you can just
call on that bird by name and you will
receive the desired help--for example,
“I call on a bulbul to help me be more

One doesn’t need to go into a great ceremony
of lighting candles next to a picture of
the bird you are invoking for help--all it
takes is a simple and respectful request.

Birds that suddenly appear next to you or
fly into your house are going to be those
birds commonly found in your particular
area. Every bird has a specific message,
and the most pertinent message you need
to hear at any given time will always be
delivered in some way. If the bird with
that message is not found in your area,
then the bird will perhaps appear in a
dream, or maybe even on a card that you
have been sent.

The number of birds conveying a message at
any given time should be taken into
consideration. As a general guideline, when
one, two, or three birds of the same species
appear at the same time, it usually indicates
one, two, or three different areas of our
lives to which their message or keyword
applies. But when more than three birds of
the same species appear at any given time,
it is usually just a reinforcement of
the message, to hammer it home, so to speak.
