Patience Is Essential – A Reincarnation Adventure

I spoke with the people at Reprise Siamese last night.  The mysteries of Echo’s return still abound.

For one thing, old bloodline Siamese kittens mature slowly, so that even at 4 weeks of age, the sexes and colors of these kittens are still uncertain.  There is definitely 1 female, but there might be 2 more.  The color of the female is still uncertain, too.

It’s hard to imagine that I’ll be bringing home a kitten in just 4 more weeks, and it may not be until the very last week that we know which one is coming.

So – patience is the name of the game.  Still the questions abound.

  • If the female isn’t Seal Point, and she might not be, then did Echo get the color wrong, or did I?
  • OR – is Echo actually in a male body, and we don’t know that yet?
  • How do we for sure go about identifying this kitten?

In my past experiences with clients and with Violet’s arrival, I have always said that the most important thing is sensing the energy – the consciousness of the spirit.  That’s the only way to know for certain.

Of course, I plan to have a conversation with the kitten before we all get in the car.  That will be how I personally am sure.  And because the folks at Reprise Siamese are so psychically aware, they will be observing and looking for signs, both subtle and mundane.

So what I am absolutely certain of is that

  • this will all fall into place perfectly, and
  • I must be patient.

As for photos, the folks at Reprise are having technical issues with their computer and are focused on cat and kitten care, which is absolutely Number One Priority for them, which is exactly as it should be.  So those of you who are hungry for pictures will just have to join me in learning patience.

Namaste,

Doubting Your Own Animal Communication

Can Doubts Be Eliminated?

 

As a teacher of Animal Communication, I am often asked, “When do you stop doubting?”  The answer, of course, is “never” – that is, unless you have so much ego that you decide one day that you cannot make any mistakes.  I certainly do not recommend anyone becoming so full of pride that there is no room for the possibility of error in how they see themselves or in how they do psychic work.

Telepathy is a psychic ability and there is never “perfection.”  There is always some possibility for error.  Consider that, while we are in physical bodies,

  • We have “forgotten” a vast storehouse of knowledge that is available to us on in the spiritual realms, but that is mostly unavailable to us while in physical.
  • We are experiencing the world we “live” in as reality, but it is actually an illusion that mirrors our own inner world of limiting beliefs and emotions.
  • We each see the world through a “pinhole” opening through the “frabric” of the “veils of illusion” – a very small view of the vastness of the universe.
  • We are limited by our current life experiences, the language(s) we speak, the vocabulary we know, the vibrational frequencies that we have integrated, and much more.
  • Communication can be in metaphor, which is even MORE open to interpretation.

The bottom line is that we are not completely “clear channels” of information, Light, Love, or anything else.  And to communicate what we receive telepathically (or through other psychic means), we must “translate” or describe the experience in language that someone else then understands based on his or her limited viewpoint.

It makes me wonder, sometimes, whether communication is EVER possible at all.  No wonder there are so many misunderstandings between beings in 3-D.

 

And so the point is?

I am writing about the subject of accuracy in Animal Communication because of a conversation I had recently with a client, Faun Fenderson.  Faun has graciously agreed to share this experience, and we both hope it will help others understand how difficult it can be to really “know” what is going on in any situation. 

Faun called me with some concern about one of the felines who is part of her large cat family that live inside and outside her home in New Orleans.  The family has grown and changed quite a bit since Hurricane Katrina, due to the increase in the number of “strays” since that time.  

Blackie, one of the cats living in the yard, had disappeared for just over 24 hours.  Due to his  progressive loss of vision and because Faun, herself, had spoken with him telepathically* and felt he was quite depressed about losing his sight, Faun wanted me to check in with him.  Some of her other cat family members had also expressed concern to her about Blackie.  (*Faun is a 2009 graduate of the TWA Animal Communication Coaching Program and is quite skilled at speaking telepathically with animals herself.)

During the first session, I spoke with a few of Faun’s other cats who are “in charge” at her house.  I also spoke with Freddie (former feline family member of Faun’s, now in spirit) who is often around to help out.  I also spoke with Echo, my former equine companion, also in spirit.  In the past, I have found Echo’s information to be highly accurate, but anyone can make a mistake or certainly, I can!

By the time the session ended, I was certain that Blackie was in the process of leaving the Earth plane, i.e., dying.  I came to this conclusion without actually checking into the state of his physical body (if my memory serves me – or possibly I couldn’t find a physical body – which has also been known to happen).  I also had asked for help, insight, and information from my guides and my “I Am Presence” (my highest spiritual aspect). 

The last thing I said to Faun was, “Of course, I can be wrong.  He might just show up at your door, and if he does, please let me know.  But I will be very surprised if that’s what happens.”

 

Surprise!  Surprise!

Because we did not record the sessions, and because when I work with clients it is difficult for me to take many notes, I did not have much written down when Faun and I finished our initial conversation.   Still, I had a strong feeling of certainty that Blackie would not be back – at least not in the body he had recently been using.

When the phone rang later that day, it was Faun.   Blackie was in her yard.  My mouth dropped open.  I was blown away. 

My “feeling” that Blackie would not return was SO STRONG that I had allowed myself to be CERTAIN that he had transitioned.  I had even felt grief, as I’ve been speaking with Faun and Blackie for a few years now.

Faun asked me to do a follow-up session the next day.  Thanks to Faun’s copious notes from our first conversation, she was able to tell me “word for word” what I had said to her over the phone in the previous conversation.  The words I had used never actually said “Blackie is dying” or “Blackie’s spirit is definitely detached from his physical form.”   Everything I had said, according to Faun’s notes, left open the possibility of his return.

Isn’t it amazing how we fill in the spaces of information to create something? 

Isn’t it amazing how we can convince ourselves that something is “so”?

In my next blog entry I will share with you Faun’s experience of the Blackie story.   I have left many of the details to her, since she’s the one with the detailed notes.

Meanwhile, I, the professional with 16 years professional experience and a lifetime of communicating telepathically, am still amazed by what can happen when using psychic gifts to communicate telepathically. 

It’s not predictable.  It’s not measurable.  It may or may not be varing degrees of accurate. 

It’s also thrilling and challenging.

I’m just grateful that I am still open to being in error, to making mistakes, and to learning from them. 

Namaste,
Nedda

Death and Dying

LIFE AND LIVING

 

Yesterday, Paloma Baertschi-Herrera was a guest speaker at the Animal Communicator Forum.  Her talk was “Animals and the Final Journey.”  She spoke about her experiences as she allowed animals to die naturally, without euthanasia.  

Paloma explained that there is a natural dying process, just like there is a natural birthing process.  She proposed that when humans choose to interfere with that process, we may rob ourselves and our animals of something extraordinary and important for the spirit/soul to experience.

In a society where human death is hidden away in hospitals and hospices and where we are encouraged by veterinarians and each other to euthanize an elderly or sick or severely injured animal without considering what the animal might want or need, the courage to explore the topic of death seems to be lacking.

Everybody dies.  That is a fact of life.  And you or a loved one (human or animal) can die at any moment.

What does it mean, “die?”  Maybe that’s the place to begin a discussion.  So many of us only think about what may or may not be true AFTER we die, and because we have been conditioned by religions to fear the afterlife or because you may not even believe in the “after life” the subject of dying is frought with fear.

But each of us will, one day, leave our body behind.  If you believe that you are a spirit or that you have a soul, then something of who are believe you truly are with continue beyond the physical form.

“Death” and “Life” are part of the duality of our existence at the level of our current physical existence.  They are the “yin” and “yang” of this reality.  So doesn’t it make sense to begin exploring the topic of death while you are living so you can prepare yourself for the experience ahead?

My favorite book on this subject is called Deathing: An Intelligent Alternative for the Final Moments of Life by Anya Foos-Graber.  I found this extraordinary book when I began preparing myself for the eventual passing of my equine companion, Echo.   There were no books on this subject that focused on animals at that time, and I found this one to be multi-cultural in its approach, as well as to explain how to prepare yourself and/or a loved one for the final journey.

Paloma Baertschi-Herrera has recently published an e-book on this subject.  It is called Animals and the Final Journey and is available at her website, http://tiertalk.ch

If you feel ready to explore this topic, for yourself, for your human family and friends, and/or for your animals, I strongly recommend these two publications.  You can purchase Deathing at http://www.amazon.com

Some other ways to explore this subject include TV shows and movies.  My favorites are

  1. Six Feet Under,  a TV series which teaches us about grieving and the struggle that we have in our culture coping with death of a loved one and the knowledge that we each will someday die;
  2. Dead Like Me, a TV series which explores this topic from a different perspective;  
  3. Defending Your Life, a movie that illustrates for us what the life review process may be like during the transitional phase the soul experiences after leaving the body;
  4. What Dreams May Come, a movie which also explores some ideas of the afterlife;  
  5. Ghost, a movie which is mostly about Love knowing no boundaries.

Exploring the subject is death does not have to be morbid (or deadly).  It can be an affirmation of choosing to live life fully!  I so choose!

Namaste,
