Saying I love animals is an understatement. I don’t know of a word in the English language that could encapsulate the depth of feeling I have for other species. For many years I had been living an existence where I was pained, and crestfallen over the treatment and cruelty of animals by the majority of mankind. So much of the world treats animals as being below us, and I couldn’t stomach that philosophy. When I looked at any animal, most of all my cats, I was mesmerized and captivated by their beings. The beauty and mystery is so powerful that I felt gratitude just being in their presence.
The universe works in mysterious ways, and in 2016 I came across a week long workshop at Kripalu called Soul Level Animal Communication. I was intrigued, but put off making a commitment to join. As the date got closer I couldn’t get it off my mind. Something, some force was driving me to go. I didn’t know what to expect, and the fear I had felt so often came back. The first day when we were sitting in a circle introducing ourselves I spoke about how difficult my life was because of my extreme sensitivity to animals. My teacher Danielle MacKinnon said something I will never forget: “By doing this work and connecting intuitively with animals, that can all change”. To hear that said by a person as renowned and aware of other life forms was earth shattering, and I couldn’t wait to find out how.
That week changed my life. I had always felt intuitive, but had never known how to harness it. The idea that my hyper sensitivity and massive empathy could be used to help animals and humans was profound. Then it hit me, I can help and be of service to others to facilitate and enrich the relationships between humans and their animals. We live among these enlightened creatures who are teaching us through their behavior. We just have to tune in and observe what is right there in front of us. I have been told that my intuition has moved people to better understand the soul contract they have with a pet and has led to revelations and shifts in thinking. I am passionate about exploring what is going on deep on a soul level. Whether an animal is now living, or has passed away, they are still around us exhibiting unconditional love which we as mankind are nowhere near practicing.
