I recently met a Sperm Whale Named Juliet. She arrived at the shores of Rockaway to leave her physical body. With such a massive physical presence, it was easy to focus on what the human eye observed. There was a greater purpose for her visit here. Like many animals, Juliet arrived with a loving heart and a desire to spout wisdom and healing.
Healing With Respect
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.
Healing With The Birds
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.
