The Alignment of Higher Self and Ego

Are they the so-called Good and Evil, Dark and Light, Right and Wrong?

“They are your guides for your Soul. Listen to both and hear their guidance but don’t become them while in Physical Human form.

You are not your Higher Self Incarnate.

It is your Soul who incarnated to be in an Human. When you return to Spirit, you reconnect with your Higher Self.

Your Higher Self offers you glimpses of knowledge and insight for you to learn with and grow with while being an Human.

Your Higher Self offers understanding of lessons learnt.

Light to guide you.

You are not your Ego.

That is your Human Litmus. For you to utilise to learn. Your trigger warning system in-built into your Physical Human.

Your Ego offers you reactions to encounters, with people and situations, for you to learn with.

When you return to Spirit, your Ego stays with the Physical and returns to Earth.

Ego and Higher Self are doing their own ‘thing’, their own work while harmonising with each other. For you and All.

What is Ego love?

It is a love of being our emotions, our struggles, our challenges, our reactions, our anger, our fears, our doubts, our desires, our addictions and so much more.

It is a love of being all those without wanting to leave them.

It is a love where we want to exist within, and as them.

It is a love where we disconnect ourself from our path.

It is a love where we take a seat at the side of the road and watch all go by.

What is Higher Self Love?

It is also a disconnected love.

It is a love where we want to remove ourself from our human experience.

It is a love where we disconnect ourself from who we came to be in this lifetime.

It is a love where we want to disconnect ourself, and therefore deny ourself, of all the lessons our ego wants to bring us.

It is a love where we deny ourself the lessons and growth associated with humanness.

It is a love where we try to avoid emotions, interactions, pain, Love, happiness and community.

It is a love where we miss essential experiences for our Soul’s growth.

So… What do we do?

Hear the Call of the Harmony which is Higher Self and Ego.

Bring them equally into this lifetime for a balanced, fuller growth experience.

Allow yourself to be held and guided in Equilibrium.

Observe if one is stronger than the other.

Consider if you’re denying one, or seeking one: Find that beautiful balance.

These two ‘opposites’ work the same. They are not so different, after all. They do not battle each other, they just do their own thing for the good of you.

Recognise the work they are doing for you, and your Soul will blossom.”

 

Sea Turtle Insight

Image: Laszlo Ilyes Flickr.com

A strong, determined, charming, wise and gentle being shared some insight on World Sea Turtle Day, today.

A huge ‘grandfather’ energy joined me when I asked the Sea Turtle Realm if they would like to share anything today.

His first words were,

Sea Turtle …… See the Turtle.  We are not past.  We are here and we are very much a part of your future, too.”

Surprised at the request for a communication, Turtle shared he “Just wanted to be heard. Isn’t that what we all want? Just because we are ‘down here’. ‘out here’ and are often not seen, it does not leave us invisible.

That is the same for all.

Our voices are clear and loud to those who are here. Also for those who know how to listen and hear what is not being said, verbally, in their physical locality.”

Turtle continued:  “Why rush?

What you need to encounter, your experiences, the ‘whos’, ‘whats’ and ‘wheres’ will wait. They will all be there when you need them to be and when the time coincides with why you need them. All the speed in the world won’t affect those interactions, those moments of connection and the synchronicities aligned to you.

Be graceful on your journey to and through these experiences.  Show kindness, humility and temperance.  You will have clarity and contrast, for you to appreciate and bathe in life’s experiences and events, rather than skim across them unaware and unaffected.

We are all soldiers.  In a Peace Army, for peace does not come passively.  That is a subdued peace.

Real peace, inner peace is an active process.  Stability comes from following the active peace process and movement.  We are an army, gentle and focussed, operating to manoeuvre those towards a vibration of peace.

We command ourselves.  We manoeuvre ourselves.  For we operate with trust for each other.

We trust and honour our fellow soldiers, that they are capable, purposeful, honourable and motivated as much as ourselves.

That is what Humanity will learn from us.

Observe our example.  Be empowered by your observations and subsequent connections.  When you truly observe, you connect.  You understand, and then a part of you connects with a part of us.

Observation is more than just looking at us.  It is a focussed seeing.  It is an untouched, combined experience.

You become a part of that moment with us.  It becomes your experience and a specific moment in your lifetime with us. That is a connection.  You see us and are with us, no longer indifferent to our existence.

Those observations and connections will bring you into your present.  While in that shared experience, you are not concerned with your past or worried about your future.

You are experiencing the now.

That is ‘being alive’.

That is why we are here, to fully BE.

It will also bring you awareness and empathy for more than yourself and your immediate existence. New worlds will be seen through fresh eyes.

Your re-assessed pace of existence will bring depth and dimension to moments unlike before.

Feel yourself leap out of your 2D page into a multi-dimensional adventure.  Your vibration will ripple and echo to be heard and felt by distant observers.

It is an exciting time to be changing with the shift in vibrational existence. It is a challenging shift so bathe in the possibilities of this deeper, wider yet subtle energy whose gentleness must not be underestimated or under-rated. Become as gentle as the energy to fully participate in her endeavour and be fully submersed in the energetic shift.

We are a kind race.  Find the kindness in yours, too.

Healing through Memories

“It is humans who forget their connections.

Our Souls remember but recall memories differently to our minds.
Souls recall via feelings or energy, the mind by thought and human sensory stimulation (triggers via our senses: images, touch, emotions etc.).  The latter reminds us of events but we tend to ‘reason’ them away with logic.
Our Souls store memories and recall them within our energetic bodies (physical, emotional and ethereal).
When we recall experiences via our Soul, we get notified via our energy fields which may present as physical ‘ailments’, injury, chronic conditions etc., or it may present via triggers which create certain emotions; anger, fear, mental illness etc.
Many animals from other species recognise and work with these indicators. Humans often forget that is a form of memory recall.”

This invaluable insight was shared by a caring animal companion in response to his person’s fears of being forgotten due to separation.

This shared knowledge helps us understand how we all have access to unlimited memories, from a multitude of sources and lifetimes, if we are prepared to open ourselves up to the signs.  We also need to know how to recognise the signs to reach those memories.

As this insightful companion shared, one source to these signs comes from imbalances in our own energy fields.  They can be energetic blockages, leakage or stagnation, which are all often precursors for emotional, mental or physical illness or/and injury.  Knowing the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of any energy imbalance will begin to release and rebalance these blocked, leaking or stagnant energies immediately.  Stress levels reduce, which will alter our physical, emotional and ethereal energy fields drastically.  We begin to heal ourselves just by acknowledging the cause.

Events from our present life, or previous lives, all have an affect our energy fields.  How we deal with these events determines the effect on our energy.  If unresolved, these events are stored as imbalances in our energy fields and will travel through lifetimes as ‘glitches’ in the Soul’s make-up.

An energy healing with the amazing Catherine Louise Birmingham showed me how one particularly traumatic event in a previous life had formed ‘scars on my Soul’.  These ‘scars’ had manifested as a physical condition in this lifetime.  Once I remembered the event through past life healing, acknowledged my emotions attached to that event and released them, my energy field rebalanced and my physical soon repaired herself without the need for surgery.

Memories of unresolved traumatic events, from any lifetime, whether present or past are ‘stored’ in our energy fields and alert us to them via an injury or illness.  Until we address that issue, the injury or illness will keep recurring, often intensifying if ignored.  That is how our present self is triggered, via our energy fields, to remember what we need to heal, however old the trauma.

Another source to memories are triggers received by our physical senses. Whether fear-based, trauma induced, belief patterns or learnt behaviour, these signs are easier to pick-up on than energetic signs.  Physical triggers, which also alert us to ‘issues’ needing healing, often bring memories of events and experiences much faster and clearer than energetic triggers.  (Any trigger is a signpost to an area requiring healing).

We are more likely to be alert and aware of something, or someone, who triggers a fear-based memory within us, than our Root Chakra being imbalanced because of a past-life experience. 

The latter takes patience, commitment and self-awareness to redevelop but is as effective as any physical trigger.
Recognising both sets of triggers and the multiple signs is key to discovering and experiencing a fuller holistic healing of Soul and Body.

Acknowledging these signs, from our physical body and energetic fields is a fundamental step in memory recall and Self-Healing.

By accessing the memories stored and recalling the lesson within that memory, we begin to heal deeply from within, a process only we can do.  Tools such as energy healing, past life regression, therapy, meditation, medication, essences, etc. can assist us to remember but the realisation and healing can only be fulfilled by the person with that memory.

Through this combined memory recall, of Soul and Physical, we are also able to access a well of knowledge and wisdom to understand:
‘Who am I?’
‘Why am I who I am?’
‘How do I interconnect and interact with others?’ and
‘What really is my purpose?’

Limited understanding becomes infinite as we are reconnected with this immense record of relationships, lessons and experiences through multiple lifetimes.

We can then use this understanding and knowledge to heal physical, emotional and mental ‘issues’ throughout this lifetime.

We can utilise the new-found wisdom to change patterns of behaviour and break cycles of ‘generational coding’.  Hereditary illnesses and cycles of trauma can be understood, processed and released.

By assimilating connections, interactions and relationships from previous lifetimes into our present one, we can resolve any unfinished agreements and/or lessons to bring peace and understanding into this lifetime.

Fears, threats and control

20200318_162534_0000
Mother Earth is facilitating change again.  Well played Mother Earth.
She has hit the ‘pause’ button on our busy-ness so that we may stop, look within, look around and question.
Taking this break to heal herself, Mother Earth shared:
“You are the Pandemic but you have been too preoccupied to see how far you have spread.”
Since mandatory isolation has been introduced in many areas, there has been:
  • waterways rejuvenating
  • wild animals returning to abandoned habitats
  • food excesses being shared with the needy
  • increased animal fostering opportunities
  • exploitive animal events being cancelled
  • communities working together to help those in need
  • families spending more time together
  • and much more.
20160521_143615
It is a great time to pause, re-assess ourselves, our existence and what our being here with each other and Mother Earth is all about.
Through highlighting:
  • unnecessary travel
  • excessive buying
  • consumption
  • health
  • hygiene
  • leadership and control
  • self-awareness
  • our fears of vulnerability, death, lack of control, lack of purpose and so much more,
Mother Earth is bringing humanity back down to a local level of existence to be reminded of the basics.
Ironically, the act of separation is connecting us with so much more and gradually bringing us all closer together.
This current period of isolation also offers us an opportunity to reassess our own purpose and responsibilities here.
We are being asked to consider this perspective:
“by volunteering control of a situation to another, we are giving them permission to control our actions and, thus, enable ourselves to become victims of a fear-based experience.”
When we attempt to hand a ‘problem’ over to another, we empower it.  We then begin to slip further into ego and fear by asking someone else to ‘fix’ it.
20171021_163322
Through trying to shift and release our responsibilities, to someone else, to change an event and its effects on our own lives, we surrender who we are and our purpose here.
Living in constant fear of stepping into our own real existence, we, instead, begin to live an existence created by, and led by, others.
The fear surrounding this latest threat to our species, COVID-19, has created chaos and when we exist in a state of fear-based chaos, our thought processes get severely jumbled.  We forget to connect with our heart centres and try to exist, solely, in our head-space, losing connection with all other sensory and energetic capabilities.  Humans do not focus and process logical thought the same when existing in fear.  A fearful person or group will often panic, shut down and/or look for someone else to take control of the perceived ‘threat’.
‘Leaders’ will assume management, disguising control as leading, and those existing in fear and chaos will gratefully accept this ‘leadership’ because they have been guided to believe they are helpless victims.
We are being encouraged and reminded:
“Break the cycle by believing to disbelieve.
Know that your thought processes, reactions and actions are yours, not something to offer another to control.”
Control will continue until each one of us reclaims our responsibilities and realises we are the navigators of our existence, our thoughts, actions and belief systems.
We can choose to live in an existence of fear and separation or genuinely live in, and from, a place of love and compassion with each other.
We are gently reminded:
“If you are feeling overwhelmed by recent challenges, take a big deep breath and feel yourself deep in your heart centre. Stay here for a few moments, to reconnect with self at Soul Level. This is your connection with the universal, unconditional energy of love. Feel it and take it with you to share with others.”
Sending much needed love and light to the world.

Insight from the Cow Community

“There will be many questions raised through this insight.

We are inquisitive creatures.  We see, we feel and we make use of all that we learn.  We don’t have all the answers, which is one of the reasons why we connect with you.  You must search for new knowledge and the knowledge you already have.  Let us, and others know what you discover, rediscover and learn.

Remember that we ask these questions and bring our messages with love. Without judgement or hate.  If we were to bring them with anger, hatred and frustration, you would not receive what you need to feel, hear and understand.  It would only create conflict, fear and more of the same energy.
By bringing our messages in love and peace, that love and peace is received by you, felt, absorbed and paid forward by you.

When you are ready to share our messages, share them as you would want to receive them, no matter who you offer them to.  If your perspective differs from that of the recipient, still offer the message with love and compassion so the doors of communication remain open.  Hatred and judgement will close the doors of hearts and minds.  Love and compassion bring light and openness.

It is still OK to be upset and feel all your emotions, but process them yourself.  Don’t bundle them into a package to send with our/your messages.  Your emotions are there to help you grow, no-one else.”

The strength of the bond between a cow and another is strong.  They trust deeply, love unconditionally, nurture, grieve, lead and honour each other.

Cows are very giving and patient.  So why are they one of the most exploited, disregarded, abused, disrespected and unseen species throughout many societies?

Could it be that these animals, with their complex digestive system, are here to help us ‘digest’ what we need to process?  Just as they do.

The Cow Community graciously explained:

“Because we are peaceful. We are complicit in what we need to do.  We are unwavering and objectionable.”

Part of their response surprised me.  I asked them to confirm I heard ‘objectionable’ correctly.

“Yes.  We bring you, to expose, what is unpleasant or wrong.  We raise objections from all perspectives.

Each ‘wrong’ perspective highlights a ‘right’.

There are those who are asked to connect with and understand us as sentient beings, there are others who are asked to asked to witness the industries’ truths and then there are those who are asked to see beyond that and understand why we are volunteering and allowing ourselves to die en-masse.

We bring objections from all corners of society because everyone will object to something concerning our involvement in the farming environment.

Those who are asked to understand and ‘see’ us as sentient beings are sometimes not ready to process what is unseen.  Discomfort is created as their beliefs are questioned and comfort zones messed with.  Some of these people are here, purely, to work in those industries.  Others are here to provide a conflicting perspective, for others, to encourage discussion and learning. Whatever their purpose, they are all here to help initiate the friction and unbalance necessary for change.

Those who help us swiftly through our purpose, we thank you.  You have seen and understand, fully, our purpose.  Those who are not assisting us compassionately, we ask you to remove yourself from ego-living and search, honestly, for your purpose.  You will then understand another’s.

Those people who are not ready to ‘see’ us as sentient beings, we ask you to gently begin your connection with us.  Allow yourself to feel that connection, and whatever emotions it brings with it.  Release guilt, shame, regret or anything which no longer serves its purpose.  The learning has been done and you have time to make a significant change to your life, other lives and your planet.

Those who are connecting with us and recognise us as sentient beings will view the industries we are here to highlight, for change, as unpleasant and wrong.  They consider those who work in these industries, how we are treated and our deaths as wrong because they are seeing, only, our exploitation.  It is time for these people to begin connecting with the ‘bigger picture’ of what we are here for and support us with our purpose.  Redirect your energies to assisting us.  We need strength, not pity.

A difficult concept for many to understand and accept is that the existence of these intensifying industries is required at this moment in humanity’s growth.  Because these industries are currently required, it means our deaths are currently needed and the abuse is particularly required.  At this present moment, all that is occurring and those who are bringing it, including ourselves, are here for a reason.  It is necessary for change.  One day we will not need to do this, but for now we do.

“WRONG” [Adjective]:   Not correct, not true, immoral or dishonest.

It is right, for this moment, for us to be here and highlight these industries otherwise there will be no change to humanity and the balance if it all remains unseen and unquestioned.  Wrong would imply we are incorrect in doing this.  What we are doing is correct, it is moral and true.  We are correct in what we share with you.  If you approach it as wrong, then you negate all our efforts, trauma and lives.  However uncomfortable it makes you feel, it is honest, true and relayed with love.

There is much unpleasantness surrounding us and these industries because we are making many people face uncomfortable situations, environments and emotions.

Without judgement and with openness, please ask yourself:  ‘Am I uncomfortable with any of these aspects of the farming industries and/or humans involved, whether workers or those supporting the animals.  If I am, what is it I am uncomfortable with?’
Pinpoint the catalyst to your discomfort and then learn about it.

If your emotions are triggered at the concept of us as sentient beings, ask yourself why?

  • What is it you don’t want to hear?
  • Why don’t you want to hear it?
  • What is it you’re being asked to consider?
  • Are your beliefs feeling challenged or confirmed?
  • What questions are being raised for you?

If your emotions are being triggered by the industries, themselves, why is that?

  • What is it, exactly, that is stirring your emotions?
  • Have you fully informed yourself and made yourself aware of what happens within those industries?
  • Have you considered it from the animal’s Soul perspective?

Shift your objections to the personal, detailed level.  Maintaining a general objection is ineffective, vague and diluted.

Never fear asking questions to find answers.

If you do fear, what is it you fear: the question or the answer?

If it’s the question you fear, you will never discover knowledge to evolve.
If it is the answer you fear, then you already know the answer.

Work with your own herd to grow.
We cows ask questions to help us understand your species.  Often, your conflicted ideologies leave us unaware of your motives towards us.

The industries, in their current form, disconnect us from opportunities which were previously available to us where we could connect with the humans involved, those who were killing us.  That connection was very important to us.  We now remain unseen and unheard and experience betrayal from those proclaiming to ‘love’ us and care for us.  How can they love us with no connection experienced between us?  They may feel love, but it is not for us, only for what we provide for them.  There is a disconnection from love towards us to protect themselves from any ‘threat’ of change.
Change is OK.  The process of change often hurts but it is brave.  It takes strength to change and courage to create an environment of change.

We understand so much of our own existence: our purpose, the reasons for our purpose, what we are here to highlight, what is happening and our assistance to humanity.  Our purpose has been chosen by us and our ‘mission’ explained.  It is the reasons why this is happening that we don’t all understand.  Why do humans need to consume us, and other animals, so intensely and en-masse.  We ask, so you may ask yourself, do you understand why other animals are needing to incarnate simply for your consumption?
We do not want to be born just to die.  Why would we?

It’s your thought processes which are yours alone, unknown to us, which we wish to understand.  Help us to understand by understanding it yourselves for what it is, not what you are led to believe it is.  Through your own understanding, you bring global understanding.  We are all on this planet to learn and grow together.

While humanity exists within the confines and restrictions of thought processing, there will be a pause in the evolvement of your species, which will affect us all.  Conflict arises between what you know, as a Spiritual Being, and what you think you know, as a Physical Being.  While you remain conflicted as an individual, you will remain conflicted as a species for you are one of many.  The human species will remain in that vibration which will ripple through to the whole planet.  By beginning to question and realise your own beliefs, you will resolve that internal conflict between what you feel (actually know) and what you think (think you know).  Your vibration will then rise and so will that of your species and this planet.

If you would like to discover answers, this exercise in perspective may help.  Again, approach this openly and non-judgmentally.  We are learning together.

Look at us. What do you see?

A cow?
A mother?
A meal?
A Being?
Milk?
Leather?
Questions?
Answers?

Look at us and feel. What do you feel?

Love?
Guilt?
Peace?
A connection?
Understanding?
Regret?
Compassion?
Nothing?
Overwhelmed?
Confused?
Empowered?

Does what you are seeing connect with what you are feeling?  Any conflict you feel between these is an imbalance, which exists at an individual level and radiates out to species level.

Images of us dying en-masse during drought, bushfires, floods, hurricanes and disease, are upsetting for many humans.  Consider why emotions are triggered during those events and why you want to help us when you see us suffer during those events.  Remember those feelings.  That is empathy, the moment when you are truly connecting with us.  Maintain that connection with us in all environments.  That is the nature of humans, to care for and love all others.

Continue to question why you feel sadness and compassion when we die outside the environment of the farming industry and feel disconnection or nothing when we die within the industry.  Why is there no reaction, emotion or connection to that industry-related death?  We were alive.  Please consider that.

We remind you, these questions come without judgement.  It is what we see, but don’t always understand.  We question to seek answers.

It is black and white for us.  Is it for you?  If not, it’s time to make it that simple.  Is there a part of one of us in your meal today?  In your coffee?  Could I have lived or did you need me?  It really is simple but human belief patterns have been complicated and contaminated by thought processes.  Return to what you feel.  Consider where your belief patterns came from.  Where they through your own search for knowledge or are they repeated/acquired beliefs patterns?

As we mentioned before, work with the triggers of your emotions for your own understanding and growth.  By passing them on to another, whether it’s anger, frustration or otherwise, you will not find answers, you will only create more anger and frustration in the world.

As individual as your journey is, so is ours.  We, each, have our own agenda and purpose within the ‘bigger picture’.

Ravens on being a totem

Asking the Raven Community near my home what they felt about the significance humans place on their species when seeing and interacting with them, they shared what being labelled as Totems meant to them:

“You humans are a funny bunch.  Getting so hung up on how we look rather than who we are.  Yes, we do choose to approach you as a certain ‘type’ if we know that is how we can reach you, but not all humans connect like that, just as we don’t all connect with you as simply ‘a Raven’.

Our ultimate goal is to connect one-on-one, as all species do, to live like that.

For now, we will meet you as it suits you, for humans have many fears towards us, other species and each other.

What is unknown can be seen as a threat in the minds of humans. You have forgotten to feel before you think.  Rather, you have forgotten to connect with that feeling.  It is still there but is easily, and often, buried.  You have decided logical thought is more necessary to survival than instinct.  Please reconsider this. Instinct is your connection with all.  Your connection with the energy we all are, are a part of, and exist within.

The two aspects, and qualities, of logic and instinct can co-exist.  They are here so that they can.

Depending on what you are experiencing depends on what aspect/quality you require the most, but combine them to ‘get’ the whole situation.

Never allow yourself to ‘think away’ instinct.

What we mean is:  If you have considered a situation in your life, logically, and it feels good, accept it as part of your path.  If you consider the same situation logically but something unsettles you without explanation, don’t think those feelings away or bury them with thought processes.  Follow the feeling.  The reasons will become clear once you acknowledge and honour your instinct and decision.

We are all given little ‘quizzes’ by those who guide us.  They are not really tests, but more a means to allow our guides to see how we are travelling with trusting our intuition/connection/gut (whatever you recognise it as).  If we are challenged with trusting that, and rarely follow those feelings and signs, we will be offered assistance to encourage that, which can come in the form of ‘totems’, ‘signs’ and ‘coincidences’.

One of many reasons other animals connect with humans as a particular species is to resonate with your heart centre.  When you see an animal you are fond of, or drawn to, you understand that species to hold certain characteristics which will reconnect and realign you with your energetic connection to all which comes from your heart centre.  It’s a bit like a reset.

Many years back, when we all lived with respect for each other and understood what each being brought to another, we lived in harmony.

Animals acknowledged and recognised the benefits, gifts and offerings to humanity and existence that sharing our knowledge and insight brought.

Humans, and other animals, connected one-on-one to communicate their needs and knowledge while also working species-with-species to achieve growth and unity.  There were still challenges but they were existential concerns.

The connections and recognition created between beings at that time still vibrate through existence today.

You still know of the insight brought to humans by particular species from those times, it’s just many now carry that in their subconscious.

When a need arises, now, you search for and find solace, comfort, knowledge and validation through that same species-to-species connection your ancestors experienced.

It is a long-forgotten remembering of bonds formed and forged by older generations which continue to exist on the consistent, eternal web for future generations to utilise.

So, how do we feel about humans labelling our species for Totem use?  They are the qualities of our species for humans to seek guidance with, not characteristics.  Characteristics are a personal concept.  Do not rely on what you see in us, as Totems, to ‘fix’ you but instead allow the qualities of our species to guide you.

We will offer ourselves, as a species and individuals, to help humans connect with what they are needing to, just as our ancestors helped yours.

Also please remember, and connect with us on, the one-on-one level our ancestors enjoyed.  You will learn much from that experience, too.  Just as your ancestors did.

We are grateful for the work they did, all those who came before us.  It is now our time to recreate that balance of species-with-species and one-on-one connections for future generations, as our ancestors did, so that harmony can be fully restored.”

Connect the Dots

The Animal Realm have requested that this insight be shared following a very determined dog’s journey to request a Communication session with me.

As per a spider’s complex physical creation, the energetic web, within which we are all connected, contains intersection points where the movement of energy flows. Pulses or flowing energies move along the thread of the web which has been shown to me as a 3D line map.

Along these threads, there are ‘points’ and intersections which are formed by us, time and places which connect all with each other as part of the thread.

We are within and a part of the thread, while also creating the form of the web.
We are as whole individually as we are a collective.

Recently, a dog in need of assistance reached out for a communication by setting off a chain of events which led to me. She opted to ‘join the dots’ and connect via points on the universal web, until she reached me.

This dog was one point of the web: Point A. She knew she could reach me via a person who existed further into the web so set about connecting the points to reach me and share her message.

Bear with me….
Point B was this dog’s person and this dog knew that Point C, one of Point B’s family members, had a friend I knew, Point D. So she instigated an incident which sent a ripple to those points in the web which connected her with me, Point E. This signal was picked up by all points involved so this determined dog could get her message from Point A through to Point E to be shared.

Many animals use this method and create ‘coincidences’ or what we see as random meetings. Ripples, or signals, are sent out to one or numerous points and connect people to people, people to places and/or people to animals, and vice-versa. How they get there can appear mind-boggling sometimes but, when broken down, so simple.

It is a method many humans have forgotten but is still available to us all. By sending out our own ripple of energy, we can connect and communicate non-verbally.

Our species has already begun it’s shift towards this communication method and more people than ever are being labelled with ‘social behaviour disorders’.
Maybe these people are already connecting the dots like other animal species, we just can’t see them doing it.

It will take time, generations and a lot of practise for us all to focus our energy as clearly as our animal companions and some humans already do but we will get there.

Sending lots of loving energy out into the web. Can you feel it?

Willow’s Wisdom

Willow joined the expanding tribe at Love and Nature Healing Retreat with her sister, Spirit, where she balanced her life between being a wild dog and a domesticated companion.

Following her recent Transition, Willow wanted to share some insight, so that we could understand and learn from her experience.

Willow had become increasingly unhappy as she struggled with her own choice to fulfil a life which disconnected her from her purpose.  Her Transition was unexpected, for her human tribe, but a conscious choice when she chose to make it happen.

Willow shared a conflicted energy when we connected following her Transition.  She had been on an emotional rollercoaster, torn between her physical wants and her Soul’s needs.

Her Soul wanted to stay wild, raising and teaching the young of her own species as wild dogs.  Also experiencing the love and safety offered by the humans and other animals at the Retreat, Willow felt conflicted.  The contrast between that safety and the survival risks for her young in the wild, meant Willow opted to compromise and stay within the retreat.

Attempting to ‘make it work’, Willow realised over time that she wasn’t wanting to, and couldn’t, fulfil her true purpose within that environment.  Willow showed me that the desire to stay as a domesticated companion was akin to a drug or addiction.  She shared how she couldn’t draw herself away from that love and safety even though it wasn’t her Soul’s purpose to stay at the Retreat.  Like any addiction, it silenced the constant conflict going on inside her so she ‘managed’.

Willow shared a fresh insight, how animals can hold fears on a physical level just as humans do.

Willow wasn’t experiencing and feeling other’s fears on an energetic level, then reacting to them.   She had developed conscious, thought-processed, physical fears.  So strong that they had drawn her away from what her Soul’s desires were.

That’s where Willow’s struggle grew from.  Feeling she had trapped herself, and out of options to balance the needs of her Soul and the wants of her physical, Willow opted to ‘check out’ so she could reset herself.

Willow wanted to highlight, with us all, the complexity we create when we wander or disconnect from our purpose.

We create struggles, challenges and unsettled energies around us because we are unsettled within.

There’s an unnecessary turmoil of emotions which we bring into our awareness.

When we have challenged emotions, we block and muddle our clear, focussed thought processes.  What we think we are aware of, we’re not.  We are actually clutching at a false reality that we have created to exist in, so that we can make ourselves think we are comfortable.  We convince ourselves we are comfortable and content but are merely surviving, not living a fulfilled existence.

By doing this, we are keeping ourselves locked in a very physical world.  We begin to exist only in the physical and gradually disconnect from ourselves at Soul Level.

Willow gave the analogy of having two friends to play with.  Our physical is one, our soul another.  We can play with both. Choosing one, based on the fear that choosing both may mean we upset or neglect one of them, is counter-productive.  Choosing both will bring us an Holistic existence with balance and fulfilment.  We can honour our Soul’s purpose and enjoy our physicality too.  That is why we are here, it is for our growth.

By moving away from what we really want at Soul Level, and distracting ourselves on a physical level, we engineer challenges.

When we connect our Soul’s Purpose into place, we become happy and fulfilled and find our physical needs are met.

Feed the Soul and our Physical will grow.
Feed the Physical and our Soul remains hungry.

Willow emphasised “It’s from within.  Everything is – our chaos and our calm.

We can use the fire within us as a beacon of light or allow it to destroy us.

So, how do we reconnect with our Purpose?
Willow asks you to ask yourself:

“What makes you feel alive and brings you real happiness, not a quick fix or gratification?
What fuels your fire?
What are you drawn to?
What resonates with you?

Where or what empowers you to immerse yourself so much that you feel you have lost your connection with the physical world? (You won’t by the way.)”

Willow also asked “Are you doing this, any aspect of this?
If so, go deeper and explore it more.
If not, why not?

Consider how you can reconnect with your purpose, not why you can’t, before it becomes too overwhelming and ‘too hard’.”

From the horses mouth

I had a visit from the horsing community last night whilst preparing my dinner.  Fortunately it was an energetically house call, as the small dimensions of my kitchen would have made any food preparation amongst an herd of horses very difficult.

The timing of this equine visit aligned with recent media exposure of the treatment of hundreds of racehorses in Australia.   For those unaware of the coverage, video footage has been shared publicly showing many horses, who have left the racing industry, being beaten and killed in Eastern Australia. The ABC documentary has left many people reacting and questioning, not only the industry but also those servicing the abattoirs.

Within the racing industry, laws have been broken.  Where this is occurring, racehorses are not legally allowed to be sent to slaughter.  There is supposed to be a system ensuring their care and safety in retirement.  Within the abattoirs, everything that is occurring is legal, but many people are questioning the morality of these deaths.  So what makes this so different to other animals being sent to slaughter?

Recent conversations with other horses and my dear friend, Catherine Louise Birmingham, have shown how horses are bringing a more raised awareness to humanity through the close relationship they share with humans.  Millions of humans are connecting with their fears and emotions through the assistance and guidance of horses.  Horses are, literally, working their way into our lives on so many levels: work, sport, social events, healing and companionship.

“People are associating with us. They see our strength, our beauty, our vitality and gracefulness.  They expect more for us.” 

Do we care more for these animals than others only because they have given to us?  They financially, emotionally and culturally contribute to our society. Do these factors increase our care factor and compassion for this species over others?

Horses have served and helped humans for generations.  They have quietly helped us evolve, physically and energetically, through understanding and guidance.  Shifts in perspective and deeper understanding are occurring, leaving an expired association in our relationship with horses that serves humanity no more.  We no longer need that level of servitude with animals.  We are entering a stage in our relationship where we will live as equal beings together.  It is time for humans to allow horses, and other species to go into retirement.  Their duties are done, it is now up to us to activate and action the knowledge they have shared, and are continuing to share.

My equine visitors shared how the qualities we admire in them, beauty, grace, speed and strength are not respected anymore.  We need to go back to that and connect with them again.

When different species live alongside each other, their life experience together is more intimate.  Through observation and events, they learn to understand and respect each other more clearly.  They witness each other’s emotions.  They see and feel each other’s pain, sadness, happiness, love and passion.  All that we experience, they do too.

When a species becomes part of an industry, a system manufacturing them specifically for human use and consumption, their financial value supersedes any emotional consideration from their manufacturer, distributor, retailer or anyone involved in the supply chain.  Those working in the industries disconnect from any trace of empathy.  They go into survival mode along with the animal they are processing.

These horses are acting as a vital link between humans and slaughtered animals.  They are bringing the connection of what really happens in an abattoir to many people and creating emotional triggers to encourage change.

Why someone reacts can only be answered by that person, but why are so many people reacting to this documentary?

Horses are sharing how they are being a bridge between domesticated and farmed animals.  “Our environment crosses these boundaries, our lives cross these boundaries”.  Humans care for and bond with horses.  Their strength, beauty and companionship is recognised.  Many humans associate with horses on an individual level.  We relate to them as beings differently to other industry-based species which is why the emotional attachment is stronger than with other species.  Because we see and feel their emotions through this bond, we also see and feel their pain and upset when they are mistreated and killed.  This may be why so many people have reacted very strongly to the footage in the ABC documentary.

We are taught form a very young age to disconnect, emotionally, from many farmed animals.  Our experiences with these animals are limited or filtered to minimise emotional bonding.

Many of us are taught that meat is a staple food source.  That we need it, as an human, to survive.  It is no surprise then, if we find ourselves connecting with our food source and questioning that relationship, we create a fear that our survival is under threat, so we emotionally disconnect again.  It becomes a cycle which continues generation through generation until we learn to stop and consider our belief systems, ceasing the process of disconnection.

These horses are here as our emotional conscience, reconnecting us to that emotional link we cut when we become disconnected.

National Flag, one of the horses featured in the ABC documentary, shared with me how he felt let down by those he considered family.  They were his herd.  He loved to run and understood that as his purpose.  He didn’t see this coming for him.  This gentle Soul explained in detail how some animals don’t enter a lifetime with the specific purpose of raising humanity’s conscience.  Some come to share lessons on a more personal level, others join what National Flag described as ‘a cause’.  The best way I can describe what he shared is like an human signing up for a cause that motivates them into action.  National Flag saw an opportunity to join others in this expose so he ‘signed up’.  He continued to patiently share how animals are sometimes recruited during a particular lifetime by other animals for a cause.  Like National Flag, they may not have necessarily entered that lifetime for that purpose but choose to sign up when approached, asked or advised of a cause by another animal.  These are brave, selfless beings who are seeing the ‘bigger picture.’  They are helping us to help ourselves so that we can then help others.  These lessons are coming in waves with each species, or lesson, being its own wave.  National Flag showed this particular cause looking like one of the many images of horses bonded with the sea, creating a large wave.

He said they will keep coming with an unfaltering energy, like a rugby scrum.  Because they are coming with, and from, a place of pure love, they will not tire.  Each cause will bring a change, a shift in perspective and understanding.  They need to come.  Humans will struggle because of the instilled belief systems which have developed through many generations which now require adjusting.

The wise sage, Lee, wanted to share with me how horses are helping to open our hearts, which we have closed from the hurt experienced through these shifts and events.  He shared that we have desensitised ourselves and will never heal if we carry on this way.  It is up to us to use that pain created during our connection to these animals, bring it up to the surface and ‘fix’ it.  Burying it deep inside will infect us.  We will fester and die, as individuals and a species.  Lee shared how we have, as a species, learnt how to bury whatever hurts us and it is now rotting us at our core.  He confirmed what National Flag and the other horses had shared by saying that those who are bringing this to the surface are here to help humanity.  The humans involved will be feared, so many people will react by trying to stop them but it is not them we are fearing, only what they are making us feel and experience.  Lee asks us to take our focus off the catalyst and direct it into ourselves.  An analogy Lee has shared with me and others, previously, showed fear as a splinter.  The longer we leave it unattended, the deeper we allow it to bury itself within us and the more infected we become.  Our body ceases to function fully while it fights the foreign object inside us.  Fear is that foreign object.  Those who are helping dig that splinter out create an uncomfortable experience for us while retrieving it but that pain is temporary.  Once removed, we begin to heal and function fully when our body has nothing to fight against.

We are being shown more detailed imagery of animal cruelty, abuse and killings to enable and empower us into action.  By getting angry, upset and frustrated, we are being triggered into questioning our belief system.  Through understanding what has caused an emotion, we can begin to process and release it from within, rather than focus our emotions to external situations and people.

Interestingly, the horses shared how we must not treat those working in the industries to our anger and pain.  A very challenging perspective for many, the horses shared how those working within these industries have disconnected so that they can ‘bring this to life’.  National Flag confirmed this by saying that he doesn’t blame them.  He shared how “they are bringing this lesson to the many”.  All these horses, and many other species, want these systems to be exposed.  They asked us “Don’t stop it”.  What is happening will, otherwise, go underground.

The horses want to keep the momentum going to keep it alive and therefore, through change, keep them alive.

My visitors asked that we keep exposing what we are given.  People’s minds will understand when they are ready and that is when change will happen.

“Seeing is believing”.
What we are shown forms our belief patterns.  We have been shown what the animal industries want us to believe so by witnessing what is actually happening, belief systems adjust to bring a new level of understanding and compassion for these animals.
The ABC documentary is connecting us with, and highlighting so much.  We are being shown to question our beliefs on consumption, speciesism, food sources, excess, greed, treatment and expectation.
We are being shown that money is not security.  Wealth does not guarantee anything in life, including life itself.
We are being asked to consider how one being can treat another that way, regardless of species.
We are, again, being asked to assess our life choices and impact on all that is around us.  The higher our demands for the products these industries, or any industry, create, they more the industries grow.  It’s a simple solution of choosing to cease buying into it and only utilise what we need for our purpose and existence.  Without demand, the supply will cease.

I remember being asked over thirty years ago “What is the point of you not eating meat?”  The questioner then stated “One person won’t make a difference”.  I responded by explaining how I understood it at the time: that of course it won’t make a difference if everyone thought that way but with each individual that chooses not to eat meat, it begins to add up and make a difference.  As the animals continue to remind us, it has to start with ourselves, as individuals.  Thankfully, others felt the same as me and change has occurred.  Things will always stay the same if we choose to believe statements like the one shared with me.

The perspective that everyone can make a difference is very powerful and, once everyone understands and knows the power they have is within themselves, change will be fast.

Happiness: The greatest gift that we possess.

This is an article that has been cooking for a little while now but a couple of recent triggers have called time and asked that this be shared.

One was the reminder of a quote from the wise Thich Nhat Hanh: “There is no way to happiness – happiness is the way”.  The other was an event which affected my old home town a couple of days ago.

The quote from Thich Nhat Hanh is true, to an extent.  Happiness is the way, but we do also have to find our way to ‘the way’.  Our journey to reconnect with happiness is our way to the way, which can feel challenging at times.  Certain conditions, such as neurological issues, can affect our reconnection but that is another article in itself.

When prompted to ask more from the wise and generous Animal Realm about “What is happiness?” they began by showing me that it is a combination of more than one thing.

It is emotion, feeling and experience.  Happiness is a state of existence encompassing these emotions, feelings and experiences.  Pleasure and joy can incorporate and be created by each of these, individually or combined, but happiness is more a state of being, an existence.

Many of us think we know happiness.  We have all experienced moments which have made us happy and, when reconnecting with those memories at a later time, we reconnect with the emotion of that moment, but is that real inner happiness?  The Animals explained that there is more to it than that.

[On a brief side-note: the words joy and happiness are often interchanged and there is a difference between the two.  I will share how they have been explained to me, with happiness as a state of existence and joy more of a temporary emotion connected with an experience.  They can often be understood the other way around, with joy being the deeper of the two.  Whichever resonates with you, go with that.  They are words, designed for the purpose of communicating how we feel.  For the purpose of us actually experiencing the two, it doesn’t make a difference what we call it, the experience still exists as it is meant to.]

When people share “I just want to be happy” they can often be searching for an external stimulant which may come in the form of travel, a partner, child, job, home etc.  Whatever it is, there is a ‘thing’ which becomes a target or goal to reach.  That’s when happiness is often mistakenly adopted as a ‘thing’ to obtain.  The search for the elusive ‘happy thing’ to bring us happiness can then become a one-lifetime or multiple-lifetime mission.  To expect one obtainable item to be our ticket to happiness is when many people, instead, discover disappointment.

If we are not truly happy, the illusion of happiness will continually shift its identity.

It’s not that those targets and goals will never help us achieve happiness.  They can be what our Soul is requesting for us to fulfil our purpose which then helps us reconnect with true happiness, but for them to ‘bring us’ happiness is a thought process which requires shifting.  It implies we want to passively receive happiness instead of actively utilising these tools and experiences to rediscover it.

Our place of happiness exists because we choose to allow it to, not because something, or someone, triggered an emotion or feeling.   That is joy, the quick fix.  Joy can sometimes distract us from acknowledging, nurturing and developing that deeper level of existence in happiness and it may become addictive.

We adapt our human needs and live for that spike of emotion, using it as an energetic plaster to cover and hide deeper emotional wounds and our Soul’s needs.

Through the process of releasing belief constraints, fears, allowing love and establishing boundaries, we heal those deep wounds and find no further need for plasters.  We simply enjoy the joyous moments while existing in true, inner happiness.

Happiness is an existence in love.  When we are deeply happy, we connect with the love for ourselves, everyone and everything around us.  Joy comes from, and can fluctuate with, external influences, gratifications and pleasures, which are all experiences intermingled with happiness but only fleeting.

Moments of joy, thrills and excitement throughout life will provide a fix we feel we are needing but our search for happiness will continue after the effects of that experience have worn off.  Other moments in life will resonate deeply within us and they are the ones to recognise as experiences for developing our true happiness.

While chatting, the Animals suggested to see happiness as flowers in a vase of water with the vase as our physical body and the water our energetic, or inner self.  If we allow the water to become stagnant or the vase to empty, the flowers will wilt and die.  They have nothing to nourish them.  If we neglect ourselves and forget to nourish ourselves from within, we leave nothing to nurture our happiness.     

The key to happiness is in recognising which moment acts as a plaster and which waters our flowers.
