Spirit Animal - CHRISTMAS DOG


I think that dogs are the only beings that interact with humans that know that Christmas, and every other day of the year, is about love. 

The message that came through at my Winter Solstice celebration was all around love, and especially love with compassion and without limits.  All dogs seem to have that unbelievable ability to love unconditionally and with a sense of compassion that I marvel at.

This Christmas, I noticed that the number of people walking dogs in our off leash park has increased.   I look at the faces of the people with dogs, and those without, and I see that dog owners seem to be more relaxed, and they seem to be happier with what they are doing.

I chatted with several new comers to the dog walking trail, and found that they had decided that rather than give a lot of presents, that they would adopt a dog for Christmas.  They were finding it challenging to fit in many activities plus a new dog, however, all were happy with their choices.

I wonder, sometimes, how the Universe lines up these pairings of people and dogs.  I wonder how long it takes to get to that place where the right dog and the right people are finally able to live out their contract.  I wonder what happens when a matching does not happen. 

I am so very glad that dogs are working with humans.  We are all better off, I think.

Merry Christmas 2012!



Love starts from your house, to your neighborhood, to your community, to your nation and to the whole world. Spread love to all those you meet. Let everyone feel the Universal love that raises us all. Merry Christmas to you!

To all of you that have been reading my blog and to those of you that send me emails and post comments, “Thank you!”  Thank you for taking time to acknowledge that the writing resonates with you.  

Love, light, and laughter,

Spirit Animal - Our Pets Speak



We too came from the stars.

We too know about choosing journeys.

We have chosen to be here, now, with you on Earth.

We intervene when we can so that the hurts that might be inflicted on people are inflicted on us.

We have borne much cruelty from Man kind.

We, therefore, have issue with the word “mankind”. 

Our experience is that most of the human race is not kind to us or to each other.

We hope this changes very soon, or, we may return to the stars.

-Your Pets

Angels Speak - Gifts for Christmas

Christmas Gift
To your enemy, forgiveness.
To an opponent, tolerance.
To a friend, your heart.
To a customer, service.
To all, charity.
To every child, a good example.
To yourself, respect.

I was looking for a gift for one of my family members, and I saw a man berating the woman beside him.  It was either his wife or girlfriend.  I was indignant, and started towards them.  He was very loud.  I heard in my head a message that said "Stop". 

Then, more gently, I heard, "Send her love, for this will give her strength.  Send him compassion, for this will lessen his anger.  Send them both healing, for they have lost a child."

I stopped.  Tears filled my eyes.  I did the things that I heard.  The man dropped his head as he stopped shouting.  His shoulders slumped.  He said, "I am sorry." 

She hugged him.   She knew forgiveness.

Buddha Speaks - Be An Instrument of Love

As an experiment, the next time you are doing an errand, stuck in traffic, or standing in line at the supermarket, instead of being preoccupied with where you’re going or what needs to be done, take a moment to simply send loving wishes to all those around you. Often, there is an immediate and very remarkable shift as we feel more connected and more present.

                                          - Joseph Goldstein, "Triumph of the Heart"

This is a very cool thing to do – try to send loving wishes.  I was very surprised at the response.  Since December 2012 is the time of great shifting in human consciousness, I cannot think of a better way to be a shining example of what I would like each person to be.

Spirit Animal - Mink Pops Out


There is nothing more freaky than some animal popping out of the bush at you, regardless of its size!  The other night, Magic and Merlin scared a Mink out of its nightly hunt.  And, Magic herded him so that it jumped out in front of me.  Poor Mink!  I think I scared him more than the dogs did.  He popped under a fence.  Then, he turned around and peeked out at me.  It looked like he grinned.

Mink, especially when it is white, is about remembering your spirit.  Mink tells us that we must stay connected to who we really are, and that we must disregard what other people tell us we “should” be like.  The great national pastime is trying to figure out who we are. 

When you are connected to your spirit and to Great Spirit, you know exactly what you are.

Spirit Animal - Raccoon Visits Me

Racoon has been popping up regularly.  Last week, I found out that two raccoons are living in the fir tree in our neighbour’s yard.

Raccoon has a message for me, and, perhaps, it will resonate for some of you.

1.  Watch out for masks.  Everyone with a mask has an agenda that suits that person, not you!

2.   Be careful of what you get your claws into.  Some things are very sticky and will not wipe off easily.

3.  Stay grounded.  If you are grounded and have a safe sanctuary, you will not be sought out to do things that you have no desire to do.

4.  Play!  The play keeps your muscles loose and relaxed.
