Hello everyone. I love to write about what I learn from the many people I meet with and work with, also my philosophical musings along the “path” my own path of spirituality and getting closer to Creator, or God as you may call him/her. One of my biggest spiritual teachers have been my pets.
This summer I lost a good friend. It so pains me to write about him and as grief takes it toll it has taken me a few months to write these words, I wanted so much to share with you his story. I know our beloved pets know us so well, all our concerns and worries because either in my work other’s pets have telepathically communicated with me in sessions or my own pets have talked to me and shared. Even after death.
My cat Raven (pictured left) had been having health issued for about a year. He died on July 8th this past summer. I guess I was in denial about him, but he was in pretty bad shape near the end, even though the vet tried to gently tell me, I didn’t want to hear it. I was at his side constantly administering to his every need. He seemed to perk up bit so I thought I’ll run off to yoga. Just before I left I looked in on him and he seemed very alert. He’s going to rally I thought! In the middle of my yoga class Raven visited me spiritually and he was floating around the ceiling, he was free!!! He told me that he loved me so much and all I could feel was love pouring from his every being, he said he was worried about me and that I needed to lighten up bit, enjoy life more. He also advised me to paint and play my guitar. Then he left. I jumped up and left the room in tears mid-class thinking he had died. He died the next day in my arms.
The reason I share this with you is because I know from the deepest part of my soul that animals, trees, stones, the sky that opens before us, the sun and moon that looks down on us, all of it has a consciousness. It has an awareness of itself and of us. It knows what we are thinking and those that love us know what we truly need to live in our magnificence. We really are surrounded by a loving embrace even though we might think we are alone. We are not alone.
