The hawk is considered a messenger, protector and visionary. Keen vision is one of its greatest gifts. Hawks see things others miss. The hawk comes to you indicating that you are now awakening to your soul purpose, your reason for being here. It can teach you how to fly high while keeping yourself connected to the ground. Its message for you is to be open to hope and new ideas, to extend the vision of your life.
A pretty good omen for 2012 if you ask me :0)
