In my last newsletter, I shared how my animals help me stay present day-to-day, keeping me connected to my heart, and all of Life around me.
I asked you to share how your own animals help you do this, and the response was beautiful. Here are some of your comments, with adorable photos of course:
The past two months have been amazing. Herman and I have been together 24/7. We have always been extremely close but with the downtime, our relationship has reached a level that is hard to explain. Being in the present moment is such a beautiful gift and Herman has brought this gift to life for me.
Rio has a gentle masculine nature, is self-assured, and he delights in pleasure. He will often linger on a sunny path to close his eyes, and feel nature with all of his senses. He helps me remember to play throughout the day, and come back into my body when my thoughts are racing. If a conversation starts to get overwhelming or stressful, Rio will come close to me and lick my ankle to pull me away from the situation. He reminds me I have many choices.
Maggie has been reminding my husband Craig and l not to be on our phones too much! She whines when we’re both on them too long! It’s like ‘come on guys – put the phones down and let’s play!’ Quite right too! She’s a constant reminder to stay playful and upbeat – be on the move and go outside. We love her so much and, maybe because we don’t have kids, she’s a huge part of our wee family too – we really appreciate having her in our lives. xxx
I have loved these two months with my love, Wooki. He is the most gentle spirit and everytime I look in his eyes, I see such love. Everytime I hug him, I feel this incredible energy that washes over me. It feels like his love is cleansing my soul. It is the best feeling ever.
I also picked up a hummingbird recently, I think it was hurt. I said a little prayer and it flew away. The next morning it came right up to me at eye level and just hovered for 10 seconds. I think it was saying thank you.
Animals make me feel like everything is not just ok, but glorious. They make me see the wonder in this world. Just watching them be brings out the goodness in me.
Through all of this, my happy little Toby 5, sees only the light of life, shares his vigor for life in his daily exercise walks, and pushes us to get out into the fresh air. He continues to play with his babies (toys) everyday, and at the end of each day washes my face clean of worry with his sloppy kisses.
Home for me is a lighted house that dwells within. We are exactly where we need to be in this moment in time.
Pinky makes me feel grounded and he conveys to me a feeling of “this too shall pass” not just for the current situation, but for all of life affairs. He is so patient and calm.
Inky, my other kitty, passes to me a feeling of stillness and belonging. More sassy and daring, she teaches me how to keep moving forward.
In the past 2 months, I have enjoyed watching my cats in the garden in the morning, instead of rushing off to work.
I thought about each of their unique characters and as I did, some words started to rhyme in my head. I jotted them down and in no time at all I found I had written a poem about one of my cats who is called ‘Gingerbob.’
The lovely thing is that after writing this poem, Gingerbob has started to sit on my lap in the garden. He sits on my lap indoors when I am on the sofa. He sits very still and quiet. This is new. He will usually come up to me and say hello and then trot off! I now feel a deeper, stronger connection between us, which is wonderful.
I now want to write a poem about all of my pets now and see what happens!
True treasures in our lives, our animals … more fur people as I call them. Here’s a pic of me and my buddy Charcoal, 18 years next month.
Basic 1: Reawaken Your Ability to Communicate with Animals
In 2018 I took a break from teaching to find new ways of expanding my offerings. I am happy to announce that registration for the ONLINE VERSION of my Basic 1 Course in Animal Communication is now live on the site. Click here to learn more and register.
I have adapted the teachings so that these courses are just like learning with me in-person, only BETTER! Learning over a 6-week period with fun exercises and private mentoring with me in between class meetings, the entire month and a half will be magical.
If you know you want this, do not put off signing up! The registration went live last week and the courses are already 1/3 full.
I hope to be with you in a Basic 1 Course very soon!
