Inspiration can feel magical and energizing. Sources of inspiration are all around us and can arrive in many forms. Ideas, images, or even books falling off a shelf can light us up.
Thoughts, feelings, and actions all impact what we create in our world. The energy we hold in our bodies also affects what we manifest in our physical surroundings. I often write about the healing power of love. While love is a powerful healing force, I did not realize until recently that love has a companion that can propel it forward and bring about transformation – respect.
Last week I attended a memorial service honoring Thich Nhat Hanh, who has left his physical body. While I never met him personally, I came to know him through stories related to me. In addition to his love and compassion, what stood out for me was his understanding of human frailty. It was a beautiful service, and I was engulfed in love.
We all face moments or periods when we feel lost or question our purpose. It often hits me during transitions when the universe is stringing together opportunities that are not yet visible. The experience is that of being in a void. It can feel challenging to withstand without moving to a place of frustration or despair. During a recent shift in my life, a feathered friend reminded me to have trust and faith.
Animals love us unconditionally. This love has no limits. Since there is often fear, confusion, and sadness surrounding our pets’ passing, I recently asked the Animal Kingdom about death and dying. Below is the message that the animals shared with me.
I spent Earth Day talking with the animals. Usually, when I communicate about a particular topic, there are noticeable differences in the responses I receive from individual beings. When it comes to our current world experience, all of nature is on the same leaf and relaying a consistent message. Healing Corona is about more than just curing a virus and it can only be healed with love.
Over the past few days, my anxiety had started to mount, so I decided I would immerse myself in nature. Quiet alone time has always been my way of calming and centering myself. Since embracing my ability to communicate with animals and nature, I find strength, perspective, and wisdom in connecting with these beings. Unencumbered by human fear, they get to the heart of the matter and access the highest truth.
My mentor, Maia, recently sent me this beautiful picture of her horses, Delight and Delight. The larger one of the two recently passed over. As I admired the image of their physical bodies, Delight explained to me that his duality was a Gift – a Lesson in Self-Love. Delight’s older form was able to nurture his younger companion in the same way that we can comfort and teach our inner child.
