I have been skipping around on topics on this blog. I sit at my computer and let what comes… be my topic.
This blog is back to Animal Communication. Recently on one of my Animal Communication calls a most profound experience in many ways happened.
On that call our class got the sacred opportunity of talking to a large white dog with a different sort of message.
As I tuned into this majestic animal I’ll call Henry I got a sense of light and expansion. It was as if he was larger than life. If you met him in real life you would think he was bigger than he was. I was feeling this expansion when all of a sudden it started to shrink and shrink and turned into the most profound, vast, aching sadness.
My heart chakra was deeply affected and tears came to my eyes. Since the change was so sudden and unexpected I wasn’t sure what to do. I just took it in.
I asked Henry what was wrong. I didn’t get an answer but a burst of deeper sorrow came through. It didn’t feel right to ask him anything more. I just stayed with him.
The other students picked up on this sadness too. It was the theme of the call. Henry was a rescue dog and the owner didn’t know what his history was that could have caused such sadness.
I have felt similar sadness with clients when I have done energy work but I have to say this was different. Also to know that an animal, a beloved pet can hold such sorrow is truly heart breaking.
Animals do and feel so much more than we may ever know. I’m in awe of these majestic beings living with us.
A special thanks to Henry’s owner for knowing and appreciating what a special dog she has but most of all a very special thanks to Henry for his willingness and trust to share his feelings with us. I feel that I can say he touched all of us and took us all to a new level of understanding and insight.
I was staying at my sister’s apartment when our Mom called us with the bad news. Dad had a heart attack and they were rushing him to the hospital. Mom was on her way and we were to meet her there.
It was early morning and I was still in my pajamas. I went into the bathroom to dress and get ready to go. As I was dressing I felt my Dad floating above me and he was smiling and conveying loving thoughts. I knew he had died but didn’t say anything to my sister. The drive to the hospital was silent, both of us lost in our thoughts.
At the hospital we were led into a room where my Mom was waiting for us with my younger sister. My Mom embraced us and choking with emotion said Dad was dead on arrival.
I think since I already knew this information, it was hard to hear but not devastating. I knew his essence was free and happy released from the physical plane.
To this day I haven’t shared this with my family… untill now.
It is so comforting to know we are eternal beings only experiencing physical reality for a short period.
What was going on? Fire would drift into my thoughts at odd times. I was just starting to take a walk with a friend and when suddenly very clearly I heard “Fire” as if someone was whispering in my ear.- clearaudience.
At this time in my life I was getting deeper and deeper into the study of metaphysics and was working with a gifted Shaman. I decided to bring this up at one of our sessions.
“I keep thinking about fire and double checking my heaters and appliances”. I said.
After establishing that I had no fire trauma in my present or known past we proceeded.
“Go into the feeling”. The Shaman said.
As she said this I shut my eyes and a scene started to develop in my mind’s eye. The feeling was fearful and agitating. I saw a huge pile of wood ready to be lit. It was night-time and people were surrounding and milling around the massive pile of wood. There was anticipating of if being lit. I knew someone was going to be burned at the stake. Then abruptly I know who… it was to be my mother. I was overcome with grief. A man dressed in ragged burlap textured clothes forced me to look at him. He had piercing blue eyes full of power and dominance. It was my Dad, he wanted to make sure I knew that he was behind this terrible event.
My Mom in that lifetime was the village herbalist / healer and held a lot of sway with the villagers. The problem was her husband, my Dad didn’t like this. He was jealous, controlling and found a way to put an end to it.
The fire was lit and the flickering light, fear and village people’s gruesome anticipating popped me back into the present moment. I couldn’t bear to see or feel anything more.
I looked up. The Shaman was still observing I could tell. Her eyes were shut but her eyeballs were moving behind her eyelids. After a bit she too came back.
We sat in silence for a while. I now knew where my concern of fire had come from. As I had been working on myself, a deep old fear surfaced ready to be released.
“Good work”. The Shaman said.
After that session I was no longer troubled by thoughts of fire…
With a gasp of breath I felt myself pulled upward and suddenly I was no longer in my body. I was aware of myself as pure consciousness. I had no awareness of my physical body. I felt other swirling presences around me. I ‘saw’ them as white swirling energy.
Before this I had been doing Reiki on a young woman and had started to cry. My client became alarmed and asked “Are you ok”?
“Yes” I said knowing that I was just processing her energy.
Shortly afterword I left my body. I became aware of my client sitting in a chair in the realm that my consciousness was. Out of my heart chakra a little girl popped out and stood next to her. As this was happening the ‘swirling’ energies were all around ‘us’.
My client was sitting in the chair with her head in her hands crying inconsolably, she didn’t notice the little girl next to her. After a while she looked up and saw the little girl. She was frozen for a moment, then she grabbed her and hugged her to chest.
I was enraptured by the swirling essences. They were so peaceful. They surrounded my client and the little girl. After awhile my client took a magic wand and started waving it around. As she did this stars began to emanate from the magic wand and they surrounded me.
Whomp, suddenly I was back in my body.
My client was pretty unique in that she was an astute student of metaphysics herself and she also did energy healing in her own unique way.
She said to me “Angels came into the room and you left to be with them. I was afraid you weren’t coming back so I pulled you back”. Hence the magic wand and stars.
She went on to tell me that she had given up a baby for adoption in the past and still had a lot of mixed emotions and feelings around this. The session and served to bring out the emotion trapped in her. She later told me that after the session she had felt so much peace that carried with her for days to come.
I know without any doubt that we are eternal beings and so much more than our physical body. We are here for only a short time to learn lessons and then we go ‘home’ again.
After my first experience seeing a the young lady’s face morph into a man and back again I was excited to get the opportunity to try the exercise again.
This time I was paired with a middle-aged women with long hair. Looking into her face it was like I was seeing a movie play before me. Again it seemed to be a time period of 16th or 17 century. In that lifetime this women lived on the outskirts of a small village. I saw her walking toward her home after being in the village. Small boys were taunting her and throwing things at her. I got the sense that she lived alone.
Her home was like a study. Books abounded and she lived for knowledge. The only problem was she was a women and as a women she was excluded from the halls of learning. To get around this she dressed as a man and traveled to conferences participating as a man.
It was so interesting to see. What a perfect solution! I suspect many women like her did the same…
