The Magic of God in Nature

I had just come into the local supermarket to do my weekly shop. As I came through a door thinking about something else that had just happened, something caught my eye. I stopped and looked, and here was a real live tiny little robin sitting on top of a till. It made me stop in my tracks and forget all about my thoughts.

I felt so much childlike joy and amazement watching this beautiful little bird, and I wanted to share it with the world.

I stood and watched as this delicate and joyful little bird made me smile. It felt like it was there just for me. It stood still for a while, then hopped to another till, and stood still again before it hopped to another and flew off. I watched it fly over some aisles, then up to the roof. It was amazing to watch this little bird fly across the store. 

I felt that this beautiful little bird reflected the magic of God and stillness, which reminded me of the stillness that is in me and brought me back to the presence in my body and away from my thoughts.

It also made me appreciate the magic of God in life, and how much I love simplicity and the little details.

Here was this beautiful little bird in the most unexpected of places, just doing its own thing, simply being itself, in its beautiful, amazing and delicate presence, and not bothered by what was going on around it. Some people noticed, many people weren’t aware, but this little bird was not bothered, it was just there.

I saw a security man notice it and said to him with such childlike joy “It’s a robin!” The amazing thing was, when he told me that he’d seen it before, I could feel myself getting pulled into the thought of “Will it get out?” and I actually asked him this question.

But as soon as I said those words I could feel I had gone into my head, my body felt tight and tense, so I stopped and came back to me, simply appreciating the magic of God, the gift from heaven and the joy that I felt.

The magic of God is everywhere, even in the most unexpected of places, just there for us to see or feel.

Funnily enough, I never saw the little robin again… 

That was until about a month ago when I was walking through the supermarket and what should fly past my feet, with its wings spread out wide, but my little friend the robin.

Then, upon my return the following week, I felt to go down an aisle, and there on the end was a beautiful collection of china mugs, with the most delicate deer painted on them. As I had a look to feel whether I really wanted one or not, guess what caught my eye…. yep, you guessed it…. the robin. But this time it was not flying around or sitting on a till, here it was on a mug, the only mug at the very end of the shelf that had a beautiful robin painted on it – and yes, I bought it because I knew it was there just for me.

So every day now, when I open the cupboard door, I smile when I see this beautiful robin looking at me. It reminds me of my delicateness and of the magic of God and the playfulness in nature, and in me.

  1. As you have shared Gyl, appreciation of God and understanding we are more than human brings, our attention to these magical moments that confirm our divinity, and that we can all live with a Deep-humble-appreciative-ness from our essences or “child like joy”.

  2. ‘It also made me appreciate the magic of God in life, and how much I love simplicity and the little details.’ I sincerely love those moments too that offer profound communication that speak directly to the heart.

  3. I love the messages that are constantly flowing between us and the divine. They are letting us all know they are there walking beside us. We may not be able to see them but we can feel them, they are our friends in dark places.

  4. The times when I have an equally delightful message from God, via nature, I am so full of joy and wanting to share it, that I often forget that others are not seeing the message and the messenger in the same divine light that I am. But there is no way I will let that dampen my joy, so continue to smile knowing that all the while the ripples of my joy cannot but flow on out from me to everyone around me, whether they realise it, or not, such as the magic of the world of energy we all inhabit.

    1. We may like to think we are not aware of the significance of those precious moments but whether we are aware of them or not, we receive the blessing of them just the same – such is the love that is being offered to us each and every moment.

  5. Part of our deepening and evolving communication with god is to stop and to read these messages, developing this communication and understanding of the language of God serves to truly evolve.

  6. “Here was this beautiful little bird in the most unexpected of places, just doing its own thing, simply being itself, in its beautiful, amazing and delicate presence, and not bothered by what was going on around it.” How freeing to be like this! I’m noticing that more and more I can also be in that beautiful delicate presence within me and bring it to life, and that it is not affected by or touched by life, but it’s up to me to stay connected to it and enjoy it. I’m like the robin in the sense that people note the delicate beauty of my soul, a delicate beauty that we all are. There is magic everywhere, including within ourselves, if we allow it to be present.

    1. How could people not notice the delicate beauty of your soul Melinda, ‘ that people note the delicate beauty of my soul, a delicate beauty that we all are.’

  7. To understand nature we are asked to be more still.
    It tells us all we need to become aware of, equally so it tells our body what is going on about how we live.

    1. I agree Sylvia. So maybe that is why so many of us are not connected to nature in any way, as we are living in such a rush we do not stop to marvel and appreciate what we are being offered; and what we are being offered by nature is priceless and in some cases, life-changing.

  8. This is so lovely. I’ve been noticing such magic on walks – even in cities, I see leaves dangling mid-air, very beautifully twirling around (they are on spider’s webs which can’t be seen). They remind me to be connected to the love of my Soul and God.

  9. When I first read this story, having worked in a supermarket, my first thought was ‘oh my goodness, bird poop on the groceries would not be a good thing at all’ in other words, I judged it in a negative way, and this is symbolic of how we tend to treat the Magic of God, we dismiss its beauty and see only the challenges it presents. When we stop to feel the beauty and the delicateness, it becomes a whole different story.

    1. I also used to work in a supermarket and often would have pigeons flying in and out. Whenever one did, the panic that took over the staff members was unreal – we used to worry about all of the diseases it can bring to open food and that if any inspectors walked in that moment, the shop could have been closed down. All of the rules and regulations we have placed on ourselves completely take us away from seeing what is going on around us, yep of course it’s practical to get the bird out but it is just as important to understand the symbolism & learn from it’s presence. There’s always a message.
