Giant Oak with no leaves.

August 2017

My eyes take in the beauty of the trees behind my house, only to notice that the giant oak tree living there is losing it’s leaves … in August.  This shouldn’t happen until October.  Something is wrong, but I push the thought away.  I don’t want to believe it.

That fall, I ask my “tree guy”, J.P.. to come by and look at the tree.  He shows me where it was struck by lightening.

Lightening mark going down the trunk.

Lightening scarred the trunk.

J.P and I discussed taking down the huge tree.  We both assumed the tree was dead.

“Take only the canopy,” I said.  “Leave the trunk for the insects and other animals.”

J.P. agreed and said he’d get back to me in a few weeks, but as autumn continued, he was busy and I was busy, and so the tree remained untouched.

Spring 2018

I watched the trees in my back-yard forest begin to grow leaves and somehow, deep in my heart, I expected the Oak Tree, too, to produce leaves.  It didn’t.

I felt disappointed.  Still, I held off calling J.P. to come back, as life had brought me many other challenges that required my attention and finances.

All summer long, I keep watch on the Oak Tree.  I didn’t want to take it down.  I wanted it to be alive, but my analytical self said the tree must be dead.

This tree is huge, more than 60 feet tall, and the canopy is also huge.  If it should fall towards the house in a storm, other trees would be damaged and it would hit the house.  If it fell in any other direction, other trees would be hurt.

Still, I waited.  I couldn’t seem to get myself to move forward on this.  I didn’t know why I was holding back.

One day, I prayed to the Nature Spirits to take care of removing the tree.  I let the whole thing go for awhile.

Fall, 2018

Majestic Oak

I contacted J.P. a few weeks ago, and he agreed to come take care of the tree.

J.P. climbs trees like the old-time tree cutters.  He’s newly retired from his day job, and to save his back, he’s bought a machine with will lift him most of the way up a very tall tree.

Yesterday, October 16, J.P was supposed to come to take down the oak tree canopy.

At 10:30 a.m., I returned from a dental appointment, and there sat J.P.’s machine.  The tree looked untouched.  No sign of J.P. or the fellow who helps him.

At 3:30 p.m., I left for an evening program.  Still no word from J.P.

Arriving home at 8 p.m. I found a message on my answering machine from J.P.

Nedda, I tried to work on the tree, but I kept feeling that I would be injured or killed if I did so.  In 40 years of doing tree work, I never felt anything like this.  So I figured I might need to climb the tree instead of using the lift.

I decided to come back tomorrow morning and climb the tree.  So tried to take off one branch that would make the climb easier, but my chain saw with a new, sharp blade, gave off sparks and the branch refused to be cut.  I’ve never had that happen before.

Maybe if I climb the tree tomorrow I can do the job for you.

I telephoned J.P. immediately.  I told him,

This confirms what I’ve been feeling off and on all summer long … that I shouldn’t have you take down this tree … that maybe it’s still alive, or if it’s not, the nature spirits will take care of it coming down … that maybe it will still grow some leaves.

But with all the terrible storms and high winds that come through here, my fear motivated me to have you come and take down the canopy.  Now, I feel justified not only in waiting, but in exploring this whole matter more deeply with the tree itself.

J.P. was relieved that I wasn’t complaining about him not doing the job.  He was grateful that I understood how he had felt, although was surprised by what I told him..

I was relieved that J.P. had given me confirmation of my own feelings about the tree.

So I said,

Tomorrow morning, when I sit for meditation, I’m going to call in all the nature spirits and find out what’s going on.  When you get here to pick up your machine, I’ll have more information for you.

As I got ready for bed, I heard a message, and I could feel the truth of it in my stomach:

The tree is alive.

This morning, October 17, 2018

The base of the Oak's trunk.

The base of the Oak’s trunk.  Look at all those roots.

At 6 a.m. this morning, there was just enough daylight for me to go into the woods safely (avoiding bears and other wildlife) to see what I could feel from the tree while in it’s presence.

I put my hands against the trunk and tuned in.

Immediately, I could feel the tree’s life force.  It was, indeed, alive.

Returning to the house, I sat down with my journal and called in everyone who might have information or creative ideas or energies and healing skills to offer.  It felt appropriate to call in all of the beings listed below.

The tree is so huge, I knew I’d need a lot of help to hold the energies to make a shift.

Rosalyn Bruyere, founder of the Healing Light Center Church of Los Angeles says that in energy healing, “The biggest aura wins.”

Well, that tree definitely had a bigger aura than I have, so called in all the assistance I could find.

  • The Overlighting Deva of my property.
  • The Overlighting Deva of my street and of the town in which I live.
  • Pan, the being who is responsible for all the nature spirits.
  • Mother Earth.
  • Father Sun.
  • Great Spirit.
  • My I Am Presence
  • The Spirits of the 4 directions (East, South, West, and North)
  • The Elemental Spirits of Earth, Wind, Fire, Water, and Ether.
  • MAP (Masters’ Medical Assistance Program) healers who are experts in healing trees.
  • The Spirit of Standing Ones (trees) and of the Oak Trees in particular.
  • Great Grandfather Sycamore and Great Grandmother Sycamore, two ancient tree beings who live at the south end of my town
  • The Ent (tree shepherds) of the Oaks.

    Image of an Ent from The Hobbit

    Ent, a Tree Shepherd.

  • “Radagast the Brown”, a wizard from Middle Earth

    Radagast the Brown from The Hobbit.

    Radagast showed me how to pull the energy of the lightning from the injured tree spirit.

  • Gurumayi (Swami Chidvilasanda), my guru.
  • Amma Karunamayi (incarnation of the Divine Mother living on earth right now).
  • Mother Nature, Lakshmi (Goddess of Abundance), White Buffalo Calf Woman
  • Spirit of the Red Wood Forests, some of the oldest and wisest trees on the planet.

I opened myself to receive a message, and got very strong, very emphatic replies in a very powerful voice that seemed to be more than one speaker.

The Oak Tree must remain.  Key to balance and harmony in these small woods.  Honored teacher and friend, wisest of the wise.

We beseech you to leave this tree alone.

I asked, “Can you help me understand whether the tree is dead or alive?”

It wants to live.  It still lives.  It is deeply wounded.  It struggles to heal.  It must be helped.

IT MUST LIVE.

YOU can help it.  You MUST help it.  We will guide you and teach you what to do.

I asked, “Who is it who speaks to me?”

We are the voices of the Forest speaking in chorus.

We are all the trees, even beyond this small patch of remaining forest.

We ask your assistance.

I asked, “Can I speak with the spirit of that individual oak tree?”

Too weak; too ill to speak with you.

We ask on it’s behalf.

So of course, I agreed to help.

Here are the general instructions I received.

  1. Open a vortex on your property to receive and transmute all energies removed from the tree.
  2. Use the large quartz crystal on my alter to siphon off the energy of the lightening strike from the injured Tree Spirit.
  3. Use grounding stones in my pockets to ground me so that the powerful healing energies that must pass through me will not weaken or imbalance me.
  4. Pour structured water that has been programmed for gentleness, self-love, and healing at the base of the tree.
  5. Place the flower petals and liquid offerings from the puja (Indian ceremony) you attended last night to bring the energies of the Divine Mother to the tree for healing.
  6. Place a rose quartz crystal (which I had just found in a drawer the day before and put on my alter) at the base of the tree.
  7. Once you begin the healing, you will be guided in each step.
  8. To complete the healing, male and female chi will have to be balanced.  You need a strong, male who loves trees to assist you.  Ask J.P. to do it.

After writing down all the instructions, I traveled energetically into the tree, into the taproot where the tree spirit lives in the winter.  It was very ill, very uncomfortable, and in pain.  Then I followed instructions for healing.

When J.P. arrived, I was ready to complete the healing.  J.P. agreed to help.

He and I stood on opposite sides of the tree trunk.  I asked him to put his arms around the tree and his full body against it, as I was doing on the other side.  We both stood there for about 10 minutes, intending that our life force would enter the tree to balance it’s male/female energies.

I saw in my mind’s eye that our energies met, intertwined, and then spread upwards to the very top of the tree and down to the tree spirit resting in the taproot.

When we finished, I asked J.P. to share anything he felt comfortable telling me.

He said, “The tree feels totally different today from yesterday.  It feels content.”

I smiled, thanked him, and we hugged.

“I’ll let you know how the tree is in the spring,” I told him.  “I fully expect to see leaves sprout.”  We both smiled.

Can you hear me laughing?

National Relaxation Day?

Hilarious!!

Man laughing.

Can life be any more absurd?

Has it come to this?

Do we need a special day

to remind us to relax?

Ok.  So maybe it’s just me, but when I opened an email this morning announcing that today was “National Relaxation Day” I just broke into hysterical laughter.

Now I realize that most people find my sense of humor a bit odd, but come on, folks, are we that up-tight that we need a special day to relax?

Well, I guess as a nation, we probably are and we probably do.

Are you laughing yet?

If not, trying saying this aloud 3 times, fast:

Ha, ha.

Ha, ha, ha.

Hee, hee, hee.

HEEE HAA!”

Laughter will help you relax, by the way.  It’s the best medicine for relaxing and for healing yourself, too.

So find the humor in everything.  Life is chock full of absurdities, so start looking for them.  And when you find them, have a good laugh.

Cartoon dog rolling with alughter.

So here’s an absurdity to get you going in the laughter/relaxation department.

I can’t find an outdoor thermometer that gives the correct temperature.  I’ve been  looking for weeks locally, and they just don’t seem to exist of the size and type I need.  This wasn’t true a few years ago, but every one I bring home is off by 4-6 degrees or more.

I even noticed in one hardware store that there were 3 outdoor thermometers of exactly the same size and each one showed a different temperature.  Do the people in the store care?  They hadn’t noticed, and even when I pointed it out, they didn’t take down these pieces of junk.

Now I could wail and tear out my hair, but instead, I’m just laughing.  How ridiculous that the quality of goods has gotten to this pathetic level. No integrity at all.

It’s really a good sign, because we can’t get much worse than this, so thing are bound to improve soon.  At least that’s what I’m creating in my personal reality.

Snoopy laughing hysterically.

Snoopy laughing … in case you didn’t recognize him, since deep belly laughter is now so rare!

 

Ready for absurdity # 2?

I keep running into all kinds of technical issues with software I use on the internet, and I have to call the companies involved and get technical help.

This seems to be on the increase as well lately.  One call I had to wait an hour to get through.  I figured that it was a big technical glitch affecting a lot of people, but I decide to hang in there in case it was just my account.

I finally got a very nice woman on the line who told me that the techies were working on the issue.  I replied that I suspected it was something like that.

To my surprise, the woman thanked me deeply for not swearing at her.

She explained that the last person she had spoken with had cussed her out.

So I gave her some emotional/spiritual support, telling her not to take it personally, that everyone’s stressed out these days (as in … not relaxed), and it was the other person’s problem, not hers.  She was grateful.

Now I’m not laughing at the woman’s plight.  But what I noticed is that this was the second time in 24 hours that I found myself giving support to the support person whom I called.

That makes me wonder about my spiritual service.  Has it changed?  Am I meant to stop talking to animals and just call technical support lines to assist the people answering the phones?  (Please tell me you can sense the humor here.)

Absurdity #3

I needed a new soap dish, a traveling type with a top that is attached and that stays closed when you close it.

I couldn’t find one locally anywhere, but finally, with fall coming and school starting, Bed, Bath, and Beyond had some.  It had a tag on it with writing, but I didn’t bother to read it.  I figured it was just a tag with the company name on it.  So I purchased it for about $2 and brought it home.

When I got home and cut off the tag, I decided that it had more print than just a name, so I took out my reading glasses and what do you imagine I read?

Come on now – this can be an interactive blog.

Let your imagination soar.

What might it have said?

TA DA!

It said that this soap dish had antibiotics in the plastic that won’t wash out and will keep things from growing in your soap dish.

Part of my mind said, “Is this for real?”

Another voice in my head said, “Are people that afraid of getting sick?”

The first voice said, “Yeah, let’s spread more antibiotics around so that the remaining few that work will also stop working.”

My I Am Presence said, “Throw it out and wash your hands thoroughly!”

So I did.

I also had a good laugh.

Folks, we have to stop being so afraid of everything and start standing in our personal power.

Ready to begin!

LAUGH!

Find something funny in your daily life.

Find something absurd.

Giggle about it.

Chuckle about it.

Belly laugh about it.

Share your laugher with friends.

Laugh with your friends!

And RELAX!

Happy National Relaxation Day –

I hope you’re celebrating.

 

 

 

A New Way to Have Fun with Animal Communication

Starlight to birthday balloon, “Come back here.

While I was playing, I had a new idea.

What if everyone who wanted to practice talking to animals could enter to win prizes?

Would that get more people to practice?

Sometimes it’s hard to get humans to do things you want them to do.  They’re so busy and they forget to have fun.

I have this problem with Nedda sometimes.   I have to insist that she stop and play.

So I was playing, and then it happened!

I had a brilliant idea!

I know it was brilliant because Nedda got all excited when I told her.

What if we gave prizes to

people who practiced

Animal Communication?

Wouldn’t people have fun?

Wouldn’t the animals they talk to have fun?

Starlight in a box getting ready to pounce.

Maybe I can catch that balloon if I sneak up on it.

Wouldn’t I have more fun than anyone because I would have lots more people to talk to?

So Nedda and I named it …

Starlight’s

“Speak-with-Animals”

Giveaway

There are 3 exciting prizes.  Each prize will help a human improve their animal communication skills.

And the best part … each person who wants to win has to speak with 3 different animals at SPEAK! GOOD HUMAN during the month of August.

So that means that the animals will benefit, too.

There are animals waiting right now to speak with you and help you enter my Giveaway.

You’ll find them all (including me) at this website:

SPEAK! GOOD HUMAN
The free animal communication practice site.

There are hundreds of animals there waiting to speak with you.

All of them want to help you practice telepathic communication with animals.

All of them want you to get better and better at Animal Communication.

After you talk with 3 of them, you can submit your conversation notes to my Giveaway.

Nedda says I don’t have to tell you all the details of my Giveaway.

Just CLICK on this poster,
and you’ll go to the page with all the details.

An Extraordinary Animal Communication Experience

Why would a wild bird follow a dog?

The bird on the fence is following a dog.

This bird is following a dog all around her yard.

Dog standing in the garden near the fence.

This is Suzi, the dog the bird is following.

After completing my new course offering, the TWA-I DO Communicate teleseries in Animal Communication, Donna Emerson had an extraordinary experience.

Here Donna tells it in her own words.

We moved into this home a year ago.

The backyard is large and rectangular. There is a fence along the perimeter. Along the fence are many bushes, vines and flowers. Suzi’s favorite thing to do is to find and chase lizards.

What I noticed about two weeks ago is that a California Towhee was flying from one spot on the fence to another chirping while following Suzi.

This bird would always show up, when Suzi was in the yard, always chirping at her.

The bird sits on a fence post.

The bird came whenever Suzi was in the yard, always chirping at her.

When I would take Suzi around the block the Towhee would end up on the roof of the house behind us chirping at Suzi.

I finally asked the bird if it knew Suzi in another life. It said “Yes.”

I then saw a place with a lot of snow and pine trees. The Towhee told me that she was a hawk and Suzi was her baby.

I expressed how wonderful that was.  Then Suzi chimed in with “until I fell out of the nest.”.

The two birds visit Suzi.

The two birds visit Suzi.

The communication stopped at that point. I will be doing more talking with them.

Yesterday my friend saw Suzi lying on the patio watching this Towhee and its bird friend walk around her.

[Suzie] use to chase the birds, but she doesn’t chase these..

What I especially love about Donna’s experience is that the behavior of her dog, Suzi, and of the Towhee support the messages that she received.

So often when we speak telepathically with wild animals, we have no way to get confirmation.

In this situation, Suzie’s acceptance of the presence of the Towhee is a strong indication that there is a special relationship between the bird and Suzie.

And who ever heard of a  wild bird following a dog around it’s yard?

Confirmation is not always possible when speaking telepathically with animals, even when the animals live with us as part of our family.

The desire for confirmation is something that I tell my students to put aside.  If you’re going to worry about whether or not you’re receiving accurate information, your telepathic abilities will become blocked by the strong emotional energy of worry.

Instead, be spontaneous!  Communicate in the moment and go with whatever you get.

Assume that what you receive is true until you discover otherwise.  That’s the best way to learn telepathic communication with animals.

Reaching Out to Animals at Home While You Travel

You wish you could take him with you,

He sure looks like he’s missing you.*

But sometimes they have to stay behind.

It’s really hard to travel when your animal family can’t come along.

The good news is that you don’t have to be completely separated while on vacation or a business trip.

Animal Communication works very well whether you’re sitting with your animal, or whether the two of you are separated by thousands of miles.

The summer vacation season is about to start and your animals may be wondering whether their family will disappear again this year.

Do you tell them your plans for your vacation?

How long will you be away?

Do you tell them how they will spend the time when you’re away?

Who will take care of them?

How soon you’ll return?

Animals do better mentally, emotionally, and sometimes even physically when they know what the plans are.

Because they love you, they want to know about your trip, too.

Where are you going?

What will you do there?

When will you return?

Will you think about me while you’re gone?

Most of our animals know that we need a vacation sometimes, but if they can’t be on the trip with you, they’ll feel more included when you share the details.

And it reassures them to know about the arrangements you’ve made for them while you’re gone.

Setting expectations reduces or eliminates

any anxiety or stress they may be feeling.

You can certainly tell them these things yourself, but unless you’ve learned Animal Communication, they might not understand everything and won’t  get to ask the questions that concern them most.

Once you’re on the trip, you can still arrange a professional Animal Communication session if you need one.

 

  • A check-in while you’re on a long trip may be a good idea.
  • If a crisis occurs delaying your return or affecting your animal’s well-being, a professional Animal Communicator can speak with you by phone and talk to you animal telepathically even while you’re still traveling.

Cats rarely get to travel with their family. **

One of my clients had a situation arise just recently while she was traveling.

My client was on a business trip in the USA and her cat was home in The Netherlands.  The cat’s in his teens and has some health issues.

My client left him in excellent care, but a heat wave in The Netherlands affected his overall health situation.

What a relief my client and her cat both felt when I did a session for them allowing them to speak with each other through me.

It reassured and comforted both of them.

So keep in mind that when you travel, connection with your animals is as close as a phone call to an Animal Communicator professional.
