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.
Last Sunday was a perfect day to kayak on Jamaica Bay. The sky was clear, the water was calm and the birds were celebrating life. When we went ashore across the bay, I felt myself drawn to a flock of white birds out on the water. In that moment, I remembered what one of my spiritual teachers had once told me. While I cannot recall the actual quote, the idea was that when you are at a place of peace within, animals sense this and feel completely safe in your presence.
On this stormy day in Rockaway, the Animals have a message to share about Healing With Our Environment. They want to remind us that we are all interconnected at the deepest level. The Animals urge us to take a step back – to look around and see what we have created – the large harsh footprints that we have left on the Earth.
