Description: The image is meant to represent guidance and support of a guardian angel or a spirit. I called the spirit – Astore (the name I heard during one of my exciting meditation journeys.) Later I found out “astore” means “goshawk” in Italian, which was perfect since I have always felt a strange connection with the hawk. So why Italian? I have no idea. Also, why angel? I always admired a concept of angels as asexual winged beings (at least in my mind they are.) I tend to separate angels from an idea of god since it does not inspire or attract me in any way. So, here is the confusing spirit guide. But the good thing about it: you can see my spirit any way you want: as an angel, ghost, fantasy, or whatever pleases you.
