IMAG1187(3)A very powerful sequence of imagery and messages has been coming from many different directions recently.  A companion horse in Australia, undomesticated dogs in Bali, fellow humans during conversations and Reiki sessions and a persistent little insect to name a few.

Over the past year or so, a series of animal communications and Reiki sessions has brought forward the concept of a triangle as a symbol for a strong relationship connection between a horse, dog and human.  The triangle holds these three souls together over distance and connects them spiritually in this and previous lives.  It has been a constant whenever I connect to any of the three beings in that triangle.

Until recently, I thought that was their special, unique connection and a reference point for me during our sessions.  This belief is beginning to change as I receive more frequent messages and images relating to the number three and triangles.  I am being shown that it is much bigger than that.

Triangles surround us, from masonic symbology to tactics in a game of football.

The number three has its references in many cultures from the Holy Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Ghost in Christianity, the three deities of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva in the Hindu trinity and the Three Jewels of Buddha, Dharma and Sangha in Buddhism.20160302_070029-1

The constant in all references to triangles and the number three is strength.

“Any structure requiring a strong and rigid construction depends on triangles to achieve that goal.  Triangles are at work wherever strength and rigidity are important”   © The Mystery of Triangles by John Fuchs.

The Great Pyramids, tripods, bridges, our heart, prisms, acrobatic formations, yoga poses and mathematics, to name a few, all hold this triangular strength.

All from Sony May2014 153Why I was being shown this connection got me thinking and brought a lot of information to me.  Then the vital piece dropped in.  I got sent a link relating to the Great Pyramids ¹ and their energy fields.

The article explains, in much more detail than I will here, how a pyramid creates its own energy field by drawing external energy into its centre using the points and sides of its structure.  A positive energy is created from these combined external energies and is drawn to form a spherical field at its centre and around the structure.  It is basically transforming external energy into positive energy, storing it and then using it as a shield around itself.

This got me thinking about our heart and its energy.  I had been shown an image during a recent Reiki session where my client and I were connected and sharing an energy source that came from within us.  This energy was very different from the usual Reiki Healing energy in that we weren’t connecting to a Higher Source, it was from within our core beings.  This was a new concept to me but very real and it has become much clearer since discovering about the pyramids.

The heart is a three dimensional triangle, a pyramid in effect, and as a pyramid will be drawing on external energies in the environment.   As per all pyramids, these energies will then be brought into its centre using its own shape and structure and it will begin to create a positive energy force within itself and form an external protective shield in the process.  The consequences of this are limitless.  It is an energy of love, our strongest source of love is our heart.  By then opening our hearts to others, we are emitting this powerful love to so many others.  20160215_171759_001

It is powerful and is our strength.

Some refer to it as God being within each of us.  Whichever terminology you use, it is the same deep, core strength which is our very existence, our Soul.  We can sometimes see strength as an eternal process – how we deal with situations, how are we handling things?  Our real strength is much deeper than that.  It is from the depths of our heart pyramid and we must frequently check-in on that centre to feel that energy.  That is our source of strength and love.  When we feel that connection, an empowering peace is found.   With practise, a permanent connection can be established creating a state of being where we are empowered enough to face all life’s challenges with positivity.

We are forming pure, positive energy within ourselves. 

We are all good at our core.

As with all energy sources, by connecting via a grid we can spread that energy far.  Which is when my last message from an insect comes into the jigsaw.  He showed himself to me directly after a dream of an open doorway.  He was trapped by a closed door.  By keeping our hearts closed we will never share this limitless supply of positive energy to others.  We have plenty of love within us, enough for ourselves and to share.  Our fear of getting hurt will keep it trapped and never be of benefit to ourselves or others.

All from Sony May2014 267When we feel our hearts ache or hurt, we need to remind ourselves that the painful energy we have absorbed is in the process of being transformed into a much more beautiful, positive energy which is healing us as it transforms.

Painful, negative energy has no place within us and cannot exist if we stay connected to our heart source.



Picture Perfect

Believe in the Bigger PictureIt is not a belief that we are part of something much bigger, it is a deeper knowing.

It can be very easy to lose focus on this big picture during times of stress, emotional exhaustion, disillusionment or just busy daily life.  Refocussing takes practise.  It requires re-training many of our abilities including thought, emotion and senses and we all know any form of training requires practise and patience.

Akin to meditation, it involves acknowledging and setting aside all the mental clutter and then connecting with the heart rather than the mind.

It is in the heart that we find this knowing.

The mind believes, the heart knows.Focus

With this knowing comes an empowering sense of inner strength and support.  A clarity emerges which enables us to find and draw on that strength during some of our most challenging times.  That strength is always within us but can become difficult to find as we become mentally distracted with the conflict we are experiencing.  Like a camera lens, we just need to gently focus to achieve clarity and see the picture clearly.

The importance of refocussing is often underestimated and can be lost as we strive to find some form of balance.  Each one of us needs to be taking time daily to just sit back and remind ourselves that we are an important part of a very big, wonderful universe.  A universe where we are all connected and our energies can combine to create something so beautiful, if we allow it.Drop of energy.jpg

The individual energy we send out into that wonderful consciousness will be there forever, so it is up to us to consider carefully exactly what we want to achieve.

Do we want to add spice, flavour and yumminess to that ginormous bowl of soup or is our ingredient going to curdle the universal dish?

A dish we all feed from.

It is a choice we make ourselves.  A very conscious, individual choice which requires constant consideration and thought.

Mirror, mirror.

20160111_214003Many of us are aware of our companion’s ability to reflect, or mirror, our own state of well-being but why do they feel this is necessary?  What is actually prompting them to become this reflection?  Is it just psychosomatic between species or did I just make that up?

There is the theory that our companions are being empathic and share our symptoms through energy.  Many humans have experienced this with other humans albeit to differing degrees, whether it’s picking up on another’s mood in the same room or experiencing another’s pain when many miles apart.  So why not between species?

We are all animals emitting energy so surely we all possess the ability to pick up on another animal’s energy? 

Stag and humanWe do all possess this ability but the more animals I chat with, the more I am being told and shown that it is not empathy that lies behind the mirror.  They are not choosing to absorb our energy but rather bounce it straight back to us by reflecting what is occurring in our own bodies and minds.  Often so that we can see it from another perspective.  When we are cocooned in a certain situation or circumstance, it is very hard to get a true perspective and understanding of what we are experiencing.  By looking through another’s eyes and experiencing the same situation from the outside, it makes it a great deal easier to comprehend and rectify.  We have the opportunity to initially consider the situation via someone else and not ourselves when our companions choose to reflect.

Introspection can often be unnerving and painful so could they be offering themselves as a buffer to soften the emotional trauma?

During a recent conversation with a beautiful horse, she showed me herself as having digestion issues and retching.  As we investigated more, it emerged that the person attached to this beautiful horse was needing to process some information before sharing it with others.  The human had to digest the information and then get it out there.  Just as this wonderful horse had shown me.

There are many cases similar to this one, where a companion will either mimic the exact same ailments or show metaphysical symptoms for an emotional issue.  Does your companion have foot issues?  Have you stepped outside your comfort zone recently?  Or perhaps you need to take the weight off your feet for a while and have a rest?  Do you need to ground yourself?

Recognising the signs your companion is sending you is the key, or rather recognising that your companion is giving you a sign is the key.  Once you realise what your companion is experiencing is your issue, acknowledge their help, thank them and work with what they have offered you.

Ethel mirror.jpgTake the time to look at your companion as a beautifully polished mirror and focus on what it is they are showing you.

I have yet to chat with an animal who is reflecting for no reason.  Until we have all fully redeveloped the ability to communicate with our animal friends using their universal ‘language’ this is one of the most effective ways for other animals to connect with and help humans.  They understand that this is a concept that we can all learn and work with.  It is a fantastic system of communication and teaching.

This is a technique that we can all recognise, master and use to better ourselves and help each other. 

Reflection is just another example of how our wonderful animal friends are helping us as individuals and as a species to develop and better ourselves.

Don’t forget to thank them.

It’s a pity to pity.

“We’re happy” were the first words I received before we’d even got into our chat.  Monty, an undomesticated dog, had answered my question before I’d even realised I’d asked her.  Monty2She was very determined to put a halt to the pity her and her friends had been involuntarily receiving from humans, it was of no use to them.

This message was again passed to me by another dog we nicknamed Cesar who lived local to Monty.  He was very sick and in the process of preparing to pass on.  Monty is, and Cesar was, a street dog living alongside humans on much more equal terms than many people understand.  The one message that came through so strongly from both of them was, “we do not want pity”.

It is a message I took with me and have thought about ever since.

Pity is a bit of a manufactured emotion really, isn’t it?  (Apologies to any pity out there).  It is a feeling made up of sadness, sorrow and regret often caused by another’s misfortune or circumstance.  pityIt differs to empathy which is from the heart.  Pity is a feeling we create and share even with those who may not be suffering at all.  We just think they are.

Take Cesar for example.

Under the frail, physical form of a skinny one-eyed dog was a strong, content, loving soul who was wanting to be recognised for those true qualities.  He was Somebody, not the pitied stray dog many saw.  He did not want, welcome or deserve such pity and flippancy.  Instead, by offering him respect, compassion and companionship, we saw his true soul and connected.  By recognising the soul in him, rather than the physical, there was no need for pity.

There was nothing to pity.

Pity is something that we can very easily conjure up and pass on without even realising it.  I find myself coming out with expressions such as “Oh, the poor thing” or “poor little poppet” and try to correct my thinking pretty quick smart.  Cesar2I do not want to offer that to another being, nor would I want it offered to me.  It is suggesting that someone is a victim and is in a situation that is not beneficial to them and their purpose.  How are we to know that what they are experiencing is not what they want or have invited?

Pity is a negative offering which serves no constructive purpose.

Instead, we need to create and offer a positive.  Acknowledge their strengths, offer assistance and encouragement.  Look past the superficial and recognise the strong being for who they really are.  Remember to let them know you recognise that in them.

empowerWe are here to empower and help each other.

Many of us have witnessed how positive affirmations encourage a human to heal, grow and realise their self-worth as a sentient being.  In a world of connectedness, the same applies to our cohabiting animals and plants.  Various studies have shown the effect of positivity in relation to plant growth and many of us have witnessed the joy in our companion animals when they are loved, recognised and respected.

When we find ourselves feeling emotions such as pity toward another being, we must stop ourselves and ask why we are offering them that?

Is it encouraging or constrictive?

Pity victimises another being immediately and often stems from not understanding the bigger picture.  If you think back on a moment in your own life when somebody offered you pity, how did it make you feel?  Empowered?  Needy?  Comforted?  Discouraged?

Offers of respect, love, recognition and empathy would be much more positive and supportive, creating a much more productive environment to another being.

That’s exactly what these beautiful dogs have shown me.  Theirs is a message that applies to us all which I needed to share so we can all learn from it and incorporate it into our lives.


12119982_945317148859760_7467403261146072858_oInterspecies communication requires a great deal of respect between myself and the animal(s) I am sitting with.  I have mentioned this because a couple of recent interactions with people who heard what I do ended with them wanting me to tell them what their companion was thinking right there and then.

I knew they were testing me and it humoured me that they never asked me what their human friend was thinking.  And why should they?

Every being has an innate right to privacy.

If your horse wants to tell you something, s/he will definitely be telling you, it is up to you to recognise the signs.

Once you recognise your companion is telling you something, you may understand or choose to have the message interpreted for you by an animal communicator.  There is nothing wrong with you asking your companion questions but to delve straight into the psyche of another being is an invasion of their privacy.

We must all learn to respect each other as emotional, cognitive beings because that’s what we are.

With this respect comes understanding.

Although we may not agree with another’s opinion or choice, it doesn’t mean we cannot begin to understand it.  We are all very unique with opportunities to have and express personal opinions but by refusing to understand those of others, we become blocked.  Communication breaks down and development as individuals and as society stalls.  Trying to learn more about the choice somebody else made may lead us to learn more about ourselves.  It offers an opportunity to bring new knowledge into our own lives which we can take with us as we walk our path and share with others along the way.

The language of all animals is one of compassion, love and respect.

Creating change


I recently watched a video clip which mentioned that “veganism is not enough… activism is the moral baseline”. It was a segment from a debate between Prof. Francione and DxE’s Wayne Hsiung, Published on Nov 30, 2015.

A few moons ago, this is something that I may have whole-heartedly agreed with, but I now find that it is not this simple.  Activism is a wonderful tool to bring awareness to any situation, not just veganism, but is it enough to force change?  Are we supposed to be forcing change or does that simply create an environment where we are just pushing against each other and not changing our core values?

Activism is an action that I have now realised requires additional substance.  An alternative needs to be offered.  On its own, activism can appear confronting and a method of pushing others into our own personal belief system.  This is a method that has been proven not to work.  There is a lengthy history of one section of society pushing against another and it never ended well.  Has this ever brought about real change or was it purely superficial?  I have, on many occasions, found myself holding a placard and confronting someone because they didn’t believe the same thing as me.  And I consider myself non-aggressive?!  Yes, I did it because I felt I was making a difference, but I now see that activism alone is not making a change.  The same applies to education.  I used to think if we educated others, that would be enough but these elements, alone, do not create change.

We need to create an alternative to create change.

The dictionary definition of activism, “The policy or action of using vigorous campaigning to bring about political or social change” feels unbalanced to me. It is an outward action, of one belief being pushed onto others.  The belief may be legitimate, but where is the balance?

Following many hours of wonderful discussion, debate, analysis and inspiring moments with an amazing friend, coach, writer and truly beautiful soul, Catherine Louise Birmingham, I realised that we really need to change our thinking as a species and it all starts with ourselves. We need to dig deep down within ourselves to uncover and embrace those imbalances in our psyche.  Am I giving and receiving?   Am I learning as well as sharing?  Am I acknowledging my weaknesses as well as my strengths?  And am I willing to accept criticism as well as acclaim? Once we recognise, and are comfortable with, all this within ourselves then we are able to recognise and encourage this within others.

This alternative existence of compassion, love, harmony and balance will encourage right to bloom.  By not fighting the other we will not be feeding it.  We will cut the fuel supply to the world of anger, injustice and intolerance, leaving it incapable of existing.  What will be left is a world which will thrive apart to this old environment.

We don’t need to keep fighting the fire, we can just remove the fuel. Anger and intolerance are powerful fuels.

But it must all begin within ourselves.  Trying to force others to change is an external, energy consuming and unnecessary process.  Energy which can be used much more efficiently to create an alternative.

For the love of an animal

When we learn to truly love...

I have been receiving similar messages during recent conversations with various animals explaining the need and want for them to interact with humans and be part of our lives.

They are consciously choosing to be a part of our social structure and are forming bonds with humans to receive love.  (There are many other reasons why a particular animal joins us but that is a post all by itself!) One dog recently expressed a desire to receive love as much as give love. It’s not just humans who recognise the necessary balance of giving and receiving.

Domesticated animals continually offer unconditional love to us humans but have we truly understood the message and lesson behind this offering?  They are leading by example, walking alongside us, guiding us towards a better co-existence but, as any good teacher, not controlling us.

Animals who are choosing to come into a life of domestication are doing so because they understand the need to interact with us on a much more intimate level.  They are entering our homes and personal space to connect and teach us true love, respect and compassion.  Animals understand the subtleness of a home environment as they gently and patiently open our hearts to a higher vibration.  They are helping raise our awareness and vibration as a species, guiding us with the most basic and powerful tool we all possess, love.  It is the universal language of all animals.  The unconditional love and genuine respect that animals bring into our lives is what we need to embrace as individuals and a species to create a better world.

All life deserves love

And it is not just in domestication that they are teaching us.  It is not uncommon to see video footage and photos of ‘amazing’, ‘unique’ and ‘surprising’ interactions between wild animals and humans.  Is there the possibility that our awareness and openness to their messages is why more animals are approaching us as a species?

As our awareness increases, so do the interactions.

As sentient beings, we are all connected by love and this is an interspecies constant.  We feel love, so do our companions. Besides receiving the love from an animal, there is also the need for our companions to receive love from us and others within their own species.  They desire to be loved as much as we do.

Although we often recognise these interactions between ourselves and our companions, are we too blasé about the emotion of love and do we really recognise it for the strength it has?

The love that forms between sentient beings is a love based on mutual respect and trust.  It is a recognition of that soul and respecting that soul for who s/he is.  We adore our companions and many see love as playing with them, talking with them, (sometimes) dressing them up and just being with them.  With love, must come respect.  A respect of who that being is.  We must be conscious and remind ourselves that they are not humans.  If your cat enjoys popping a Santa hat on at Christmas but then swipes at you during the process, it is because s/he is a cat.

It is not a negative reaction, it is a natural reaction.

That is how animals express themselves.  There would have been many other signs leading up to that swipe but you may have been far too preoccupied getting the hat on straight for the photo to recognise the signs until your companion has just had enough.  As domesticated as our companions choose to be, at the end of the day it is still an animal with specific instincts and needs who is interacting with you.

For humans, domestication has thinned the line between who our companion is and who we are expecting them to be.  We are forgetting to respect that being for who they truly are.  That is when we find pure, unconditional love.

And this is carrying through to us as humans too.

We can often have expectations when we meet someone for the first time. Some call it judgement, others an expectation of behaviour in comparison to what we are seeing in the physical form.  We don’t always look past the exterior to the soul level as animals do.  It is a common trait which needs to be acknowledged and cleared for us to access the unconditional love our animal friends are guiding us towards.

Once we learn to respect an animal for who they are and the differences between us, then we can learn to respect the differences between us as humans.
