Gratitude helps us learn to

live together

in peace and harmony.

Do you ever take the time to tell your animals how much you appreciate them?

There are many ways to let them know how you feel.

They do understand everything you say because they are all telepathic.

Remember . . . even something an animal does that might seem annoying has one or more gifts within it that we can appreciate.

ALL ANIMALS:

  • I’m so grateful that you’re here in my life.
  • I love to look at you and watch the way you move.
  • I love your eyes and the way you look at me.

  • Thank you for always doing the very best you can even when I wish you could do better.
  • I am so grateful to you for being with me.  Your presence fills my heart with joy and love even when all I can do is groom you and look at you with adoration.
  • I love so much to see you run with your mane and tail flying and the joy on your face when you buck and spin and express your freedom.
  • Your sense of humor doesn’t always match mine.  Still, I love that you have the ability to laugh and to make me laugh.
  • Thank you so much for being in my life, for all that you teach me, and for putting up with inexpert riding skills.
  • Riding you makes me feel united with the universe, and for that I can never thank you enough.

AN INVITATION:

There are so many different species who live with humans these days.

You might have pet reptiles, such as snakes or iguana, or a pet tarantula, or bunnies.  There’s a long list of possibilities.

What do you tell them of your appreciation?

To share, please comment on this post.  There are probably some very individual things your animals do for which you are grateful, and I’d love to read about them.

9 Wild Turkeys – A Spiritual Message?

November 15, 2017 by

Wild Turkey

This morning, 9 wild turkeys

came through my back yard.

Needless to say, Melissa and Starlight were both fascinated.

The huge birds meandered along finding a bit of food here and there among the autumn leaves that have yet to be gathered up.

In Native American Medicine Cards, turkey represents gifts, both giving and receiving. The turkey is associated with spirituality and honoring the Earth Mother by living in harmony with her.

Turkey represents the idea that no one wins unless everyone wins, an idea that we must adopt if we are to save our environment from complete and utter destruction.

The appearance of a wild turkey can also mean “shared blessings.”  It is a time to notice how much we are willing to share and how much we cling to a fear of scarcity.

The number nine.

9

In numerology, the number 9 indicates completion and is a powerful spiritual number.

It may indicate reaching a stage in life where you are walking alone, seeking wisdom, strength, and courage to complete one or all of your cycles of life upon Earth.

It can signify being on a spiritual path, which is certainly true for me.

Even my street address number is a 9, and the entire address adds up to a 9 as well.

I’m definitely living in the right place.

Nine Turkeys

So combining the turkey and the 9, can one glean a significance?

When I invite my I Am Presence to speak, I received this message.

These 9 turkeys didn’t come for you alone.  They came for you to share, as you are doing with this message.

For your personal benefit, the turkeys reflect an opening of your heart to give more and to receive more.  The 9 symbolizes the flow of abundance around you.

Giving and receiving must exist together.  If everyone gives and is reluctant to receive, giving would be in vain.

If everyone just wants to receive and no one wants to give, then all will starve from lack.

Those who receive are giving a gift of receiving graciously with appreciation and gratitude to the one giving.

In this way, there is complete harmony and balance.

Each must take her turn in both roles.

So be open to receive the flow of abundance in your life, and be generous in your giving, and you will live in harmony.

I also asked Spirit of Turkey for a message:

Sharing is a way to increase the joy, the beauty, and the love in the world.

Share without expectation.  Receive without judgment.

Then all will be in balance.

 

Just How Grateful Can You Be?

This is the season for Gratitude.

"Thank you" written in sand.

It’s easy to be thankful, to feel gratitude, for things we receive that we recognize immediately as gifts.

Can you also be grateful for whatever comes into your life that appears in the form of a challenge?

Bunny peeking out of a hat.

Surprise!

A present that someone sends you, wrapped or unwrapped, that you get to open and go “Oooh” and “Aaah” easily evokes gratitude, especially when it’s unexpected and something you’ll enjoy.

It’s easy to be grateful for having a warm home, for having plenty of food, and loving companions, whether human or animal — if only you remember to appreciate the “little” things that are not so little at all.

The not-so-easy part are the gifts that come in unexpected forms with unexpected qualities that challenge you.

Such a gift may seem harsh or uncomfortable at first.

Such a gift may push your buttons, evoke fear or anxiety, anger, or even jealousy.

“What?”  you ask in astonishment.

“Was that truly a gift when so-and-so was rude to me?

Was it a gift when I discovered that my car wouldn’t start or the person who was supposed to meet me for dinner didn’t show up and didn’t call?

How can it be a gift when someone bullies me or gossips about me?”

We may not recognize it as a gift, at first, when we are treated badly or when something happens that pushes our buttons, .

We may be so caught up in our emotional response that all we can do in that moment is feel our denser emotions surging.

Only in retrospect may we recognize that the experience is an opportunity for gratitude.

Every experience is an opportunity for gratitude.

Stop and consider.   Somewhere inside each situation a gift awaits you.  And not only one gift, but perhaps even two or three . . . or more.

These are what I call Seeds of Equivalent Benefit.

These “seeds” are gifts that may need time to grow.  They may be hidden, at first, so tiny that your eyes cannot see them, but their presence is certain.

  • Perhaps the gift is to discover who your real friends are.
  • Perhaps the gift encourages you to find your inner courage and to step forward into that courage in a new and more powerful way.
  • Perhaps the gift is an opportunity for you to put aside something that you are strongly attached to in order to discover the freedom of non-attachment.
  • Perhaps the gift is to learn to trust that the Universe (God, Goddess, All That Is) is right there taking care of you, if only you open yourself to receive these blessings.

These are only a few of the true gifts of life’s challenges.

When we open our hearts through gratitude to receive them, we begin to find joy and peace within ourselves, as well as our inner strengths.

To discover hidden gifts, stop the chatter in your head about how terrible the situation is or was, and open yourself and your heart to gratitude.

When you say,

I Am Grateful  for the gifts I’m about to receive.

I trust that gifts hidden in this situation are about to appear.

Thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you.

With the expression of gratitude you are watering and nourishing each Seed of Equivalent Benefit.

Gratitude shines the Light of your Soul upon each seed like the sun shines on a garden.

When you do that, the seeds immediately begin to sprout.

As long as you remain grateful for them and remain open to receiving them, they will appear in your life.

Some will manifest sooner than others, but all will bear fruit.

Once you receive them, you will find yourself naturally feeling even more gratitude.

Seeds of Equivalent Benefit flowering.

The POWER of GRATITUDE

is ENORMOUS!

 

So, just how grateful can you be?

This holiday season, give yourself the gift of gratitude.

Be grateful for all that has not yet appeared.

Be grateful for all the challenges, too.

Do not ask for anything specific.

Just express gratitude every day and then observe what happens.

You may be AMAZED!

Starlight and Echo – A Reincarnation Comparison

November 5, 2017 by  
Filed under Animal Communication, New Posts

Is Reincarnation Real?

Echo was a beautiful grey Arabian Mare and when she ran her long mane flew like a sail.

Echo as a horse.

Starlight is Echo's Soul Extension living as a Siamese cat.

Starlight is Echo’s Soul Extension.

For some, no proof is possible.

For others, a “knowing” is all they need.

In 2005, my horse friend, Echo, extended some of her consciousness into a kitten body.

She told me ahead of time that she was coming to be a cat with me.

On the day the kitten was born, she announced herself telepathically to the Siamese breeder, saying, “Echo.  I come.”

That same morning, I heard Echo say to me, “I’m blind.”  “Kittens are born with their eyes closed,” I told her.

“I have toes,” she murmured with curious delight as she wiggled them.

Horses feet are actually a single toe, anatomically speaking.

Echo had told me a few weeks prior to this that the kitten would be Siamese, female, and arrive at the same cattery where Violet, my other Siamese, had been born.

The breeder was easily able to identify the kitten that was Echo.  Some friends picked her up for me when she was 9 weeks old.

Over the past 5 years, I’ve delighted in Starlight.

I’ve also discovered what I personally consider to be “evidence” of Echo’s presence as Starlight.

Clearly a cat body and a horse body are different.  Some of the similarities described here have been adapted for differences in size, structure, and species.

In each instance of , I observed the essence of the individual.

  1. Starlight arrived with her lower back very tight and some misalignment just above the sacrum.  This exactly matched an injury Echo had in the last year of her life that we never fully resolved.  It has since been treated with chiropractic and resolved in Starlight.

  2. Starlight’s hind end is more typical of an equine structure than a feline one.  My chiropractic veterinarian pointed this out to me.

  3. Starlight instantly recognized a song I used to sing to Echo while I rode her.  It was “You Are My Shining Star” – which is, I’m told by Echo, where Starlight’s name came from.  I hadn’t made the connection with the song until after Starlight was already with me.  I played it one day on the computer while she was in my arms, and her eyes lit up with recognition.

  4. Echo loved to jump cavaletti and logs and even thin branches lying on a trail.  My TV tables have a bar between the legs that look very much like cavaletti, and Starlight, as a small kitten, would run and jump over them just for the fun of it.

    Cavaletti.  Echo loved to jump them.

    TV table; Starlight jumped the tiny cross-rail when she was very young.

    TV table; Starlight would gallop around the room and jump the tiny rail when she was very young.

     

  5. Starlight is very compassionate, sweet, and filled with joy, as was Echo.  Like Echo, she is very gentle and loving, and kind, and spiritually advanced.

  6. Starlight is very funny, especially when she is playing.  She’s the only cat I’ve ever seen who, like a cartoon character, can start to run in place before taking off.   Echo also had a  sense of humor and liked to out-wit me and other people.

  7. Starlight hates conflict and will leave, rather than fight or stand up for herself.  Echo was the bottom of the equine pecking order and avoided conflict by leaving situations where they was conflict.  She would take care of another horse who was injured rather than try to drive them from the herd.

  8. Echo had large solid feet for a horse her size.  Horse’s feet are actually a single toe.  Starlight has unusually big toes.   When she was a kitten, it was very hard to find her tiny claws to clip them.  They’re easier to find now, but her toes are still impressive for her size.

  9. Echo had big, soft, gentle brown eyes.  Starlight has big, soft, blue eyes, with love pouring out of them.

    Image of Starlight's big, blue eyes.

    Look deeply into her eyes. Feel the Love.

  10. Echo used to shed nearly all year round, which is unusual for horses, who usually just shed in the spring and the fall.  Starlight also seems to shed all year round, which is just as unusual for a cat.

  11. Starlight likes to groom me by licking my hair, just like one cat grooming another.  Echo used to wiggle her muzzle on the back of my head and on my hair, as if I were a horse.

  12. Echo was a grey horse – a horse born a darker color who grey’s out.  Starlight is a blue-point Siamese, with her predominant color being grey.  This may be coincidence, but since Starlight kept changing colors for many months before settling on this one, I believe she chose it, and the breeder confirmed that some kittens do “choose” the color they want to be after trying out different Siamese shades.

  13. When Echo told me she was coming as Starlight, she said, “now you can carry me.”  One of Starlight’s favorite games is to jump into a tote bag so I can carry her upstairs from the basement.

    Starlight in her "basket."

  14. When Violet and Sakhara were alive, Starlight would always let them eat first, even tho’ she had her own bowl of food.  Echo was the same way when fed with other horses, always taking the bottom position in the pecking order.  Starlight still does this with Melissa, who is 3 years younger than Starlight.

  15. Echo, and horses in general, prefer jumping up to jumping down.  Starlight doesn’t mind jumping up on things, but jumping down is difficult for her if she’s more than 3-4 feet up, such as on the refrigerator.  And Starlight can barely even conceive of jumping to heights that Melissa thinks are ordinary, such as 5 feet up or higher, because she can’t imagine how she would get down.

  16. Echo was always very careful to put her feet only on solid ground, as horses don’t like unsteady footing..  Starlight, too, is careful of footing.  Unlike most cats who love soft cushions and pillows, she won’t step onto anything that moves around under her feet.

So as you can see, there is a very long list of characteristics that Starlight and Echo share.  While this may not constitute “proof” to anyone, to me it is evidence that supports my original experience, i.e., Echo telling me she was coming back to me as a Siamese cat.

Of course, I don’t need any external proof at all.  I can FEEL that they are the same being.  And that’s all I need, personally speaking.

My horse came back as a cat, and my internal “truth testing” center confirms it.

After all, I’m telepathic with animals, and if you don’t believe that, well, that’s your choice.  Our experiences and beliefs can differ.

I’m not out to prove anything here.  I just want to share my experience.

Namaste.

A Love Letter

November 3, 2017 by  
Filed under Age of Ascension, Heart Centered Living, New Posts

From My Heart to Your Heart,

From my heart to your heart.

May we recognize the Divine Love’s presence.

May we see each other as One.

My Dear One,

Is there someone in your life, a friend or relative, whom you find it difficult to love?

Perhaps this person was unkind to you, even bullied or abused you in the past.

When you think about this person, love is not what you feel. You may feel anger, rage, even hatred.  You may have other strong uncomfortable feelings that come up as well.

What is holding you stuck in these old feelings?

How can you release them and move into a space of love?

After all, when you feel these feelings, the other person isn’t feeling them.

It’s YOU who are being held in the chains of old pains and old emotions.

One of my mother’s sisters died recently. Even tho’ I’ve know for years and years that she hurt me deeply when I was a child, I was not motivated to address my feelings about her.  Instead, I’ve just avoided her for decades.

Now, she’s in spirit and I find that I cannot remember even one kind or generous thing that she did for me or anyone else. My heart is full of pain, not love.

This woman was a bully. I have clear memories of her bullying her husband. “Honey, drop dead!” she would say to this gentle soul.

She bullied her eldest son into believing he was stupid, even though he was of average intelligence.  Can you imagine how this affected his life?

She bullied her daughter into becoming a chain smoker.

She bullied her two other sons until one of them moved 3,000 miles away just to feel free of her.

She bullied me, too, even though I wasn’t her own child.

Every time she visited us or we visited her family, she was horrible to me.  I used to hide in my bedroom when she came to our home until my mother would drag me out to greet her and her family.

So now she’s in spirit, and I struggle to find some way to forgive her so that I no longer am burdened by my feelings.

At first, my ego kicked in, and I became mean.

I began imagining her Life Review in the spirit realm.

“Well, well,” I said to her in spirit.  “Finally you will finally learn how much you have hurt others.  You will feel their pain yourself.  Good.  Long overdue!”

These thoughts carried no compassion at all.

Observing myself behaving this way, I was determined to make a change in how I felt.  But what could I do?

When I find I cannot feel love for someone, I know that the problem is mine and that the limitation is inside me.

If I just blame the other person, nothing will change.

If I own up to my feelings and ask for higher guidance to heal myself, to forgive myself for having this person in my life, I will eventually become free.

When I remember that I’m the one who must change, then I’m ready to step forward and make those changes.

I remembered that people who are bullies and abusrs have been bullied and abused as children themselves.

They are IN PAIN!

Children Learn What They Live.

When children are bullied and abused, they often become bullies and abusers, especially as adults.

When children are bullied, they are small and they feel even smaller.   They feel they have no power, and often that is the reality of their situation.

When they grow up and become physically bigger and stronger, they rationalize that it’s their turn to wield the power.

Some of them actually go into a trance state when they abuse others – the same trance state that they used in childhood to escape the abuse they were receiving.

Remembering these things and asking my I Am Presence to help me release my negative feelings about my aunt shifted me completely.

Within 24 hours, I could think about her and feel compassion.  I could say to myself, “She must have been in terrible pain all her life to treat others so badly, especially the people she loved the most:  her husband and children.”

I now feel free from my old resentments towards my aunt, and I wish her well.

When I am completely free of all my old, dense emotional patterns, I’ll be able to love everyone.

Some of the masters say that this is the greatest spiritual practice:

Love Everyone.

To “Love Everyone” I must find a way to love myself fully, without judgment or limitation, without guilt or remorse.

When I shifted my perspective, I became able to see this lesson as a gift from my departed aunt.

It allowed me to feel forgiveness and love for her.

So this is my Love Letter.

I’m sending this Love Letter to my aunt in spirit and to myself, here on Earth.

I’m also sending Love to you and everyone else still finding their way through the jungles of Third Dimensional Density.

There IS Light at the end of the Path.

And most importantly,

there is Love all along the Way.

Namaste.
