30 Oct/Mosquito Messenger

In this wondrous world of Oneness, there seems to be One Creature that gives of Itself in a way like no other, that seems to a major pest. In the world of looking at all of Life as the gift, the Mosquito is no exception. This little flying Animal feeds so much of Life, food for so many like the Bat, the Swallow, the Hummingbird, the Flycatcher, the Nighthawk, the Frog, and the list can go on. At the same time, it seems to be the irritation that literally will take our Life Force, our Blood, and even make us ill. It is very symbolic of how we allow the irritations of other Humans and situations eat on us, and even make us ill.
As I was talking with a fellow Human that is staying at the very same Homestay I am. He shares almost every morning how the Mosquitos in his room keep him up all night feeding on him. He has several Mosquito repellent canisters going in his room, keeps the fan running all night to “blow them away”, However, he is still being pestered by them. As I converse with him, you can hear how the very irritation of the Dogs barking, the behaviors of the people irritate him, even though he tries to share, “It is just how it is.”
Now, my husband and I have only one canister going in our room with a fan as well. When I get a bite, I immediately take a conscious look at what it is I am allowing to irritate me. I come to an understanding within myself, what is truly bothering me. In doing this, I are using the Mosquito as a Messenger. In this way, the Mosquito becomes a tool for me to use for my greater growth. It allows me to be grateful for the Messenger.
If the Mosquito carries a dis-ease with It, it the not the messenger that is at fault. It is actually the avoidance of being irritated, and the fear behind the cause of the irritation that causes dis-ease. The more we resist our own irritations, the greater the ailment the messenger will bring until we realize we are the cause. However, the Human Consciousness considers irritations and disease a bad thing, so we continue to try to avoid them.
If we become like the Swallow that uses the irritations as fuel for their growth, giving them flight to be a Higher Vibration, a Higher Consciousness, then we transcend them and come to a Greater Peace. We do this by using the irritations, and the ailments to see the underlying belief of our judgments on good, bad, or otherwise.
My husband recently, was so irritated by his belief of filth, getting sick, and his judgments of his surroundings that he is now experiencing Malaria, contracted by the irritating Mosquito. Instead of condemning the Mosquito and the illness, he looked inside of himself to see how he created this dis-ease in himself. He became responsible instead of “pointing the finger” and being a victim. In doing this, he saw how he has been resisting what has been irritating him and allowing it to infect his blood, his very Life Force. As he transcended this, the illness has naturally healed Itself. This included the very resistance and irritation of needing help from his fellow companions.
We can see them as a diseased irritant that must be avoided. Let’s face it, who wants to be irritated? Which, like in this case, has actually caused even more dis-ease. Or we can see the Mosquito is actually a messenger of all that the Human Animal considers irritations, accept it as that which feeds the beauty of all Nature around us, and use them as Fuel for our growth.
As I mentioned this to our fellow houseguest, he states, “I will go into a mental furry if I looked at all of that!”; and unfortunately, that is how much of the Human Race has seen it for decades, hence the growth of Mosquito-borne illnesses.
So, the next time a Mosquito is flying around you and wants to irritate you, “Don’t kill the Messenger”, instead thank the Messenger and look inside of yourself at what you are judging and allowing to irritate you. As each one of us does this, the Mosquito will naturally begin to transcend Itself, and we will no longer be affected. Our Higher Consciousness is the Natural Repellant.

28 Nov 2014/Animal Healing

As I came to terms with my need to defend my Truth, my need to feel as if I must protect my Truth, and take a “Hard Stance”, I found it was coming from a place of Angry at how the Animals were being treated. Then, I found I swung to the opposite side of the pendulum. I found It being mirrored to me by this shy, scared, yet “hungry to please” sweet Soul.
There is a Dog, Chameli, who is like a perfect Angel on this street in Lucknow. She is tough, sweet, loving, and yet stands in her Power. She is like the Queen Bee. This is the Truth of the Divine, and she mirrors it so well. This Dog resides on the Homestay street. A month ago, I had brought my “Daemon” out of the Ashram where I was living at. He is very much like Chameli; however, he loves being a more of a house-like Dog. I felt ready to begin integrating him back on the street. The mirror that was received in doing this, was that he does not want to live on the streets, he wants to live with me, he trusts me and is very connected to my me. In trying to defend him, it was causing a lot of anxiety and anger, it was “disturbing the Peace”. This was mirrored by Chameli attracting a very snarly Dog and her becoming passive to his aggressive tendencies. She decided to keep her distance from the Homestay, and even pretend she did not know any of us. As hard as I tried, as sweet as Cawa is, the anger continued to grow, and the harder I defended his right to stay, my need to bring him out. The tension and anger grew. As I came to terms, that this is not the right path, that attempting to defeat in Anger is only creating more anger, and the the Truth of the Animals will come out as I surrender to the Natural Process of Love, I surrendered Cawa back to the Ashram. I realized this is not the place and the way to bring my ‘Power” out.
The angry Dog that was shadowing Chameli went into hiding, and a new Dog appeared. This Dog is shy, scared, and sees Chameli as a mentor. I noticed how my Angry side went into hiding. In doing this, I became timid, I allowed myself to become shy in my Truth. As I began feeding Chameli, and making up to her, a shy Dog began coming around, seeing Chameli as the “mentor”, and as I fed her, the shy one decides to come up to me, and begins wanting to play. The confidence began growing, as I have become stronger in speaking my Truth in a much more Loving way.
This in turn, has also brought the aggressive Dog back, however, Chameli has put him in his place! He is no longer dominate, and the three of them are now living in harmony.
Cawa……now balanced in me, is navigating his way to where his street, his path will be to come out in the world to share his message.
Seeing my mirror through these Animals that play out our energies, was a hard truth for me to swallow……for it is easy to say, “I am not angry”……..”I have a right to defend what I believe to be true”. However, the Animals cannot lie, the energy must play out. In reality, the Truth needs no defense, and in trying to do so, with the energy of anger……it only creates more suffering, war, and resistance. When we realize and come to terms with our anger, it naturally subsides so the real message can come through, in the Spirit of Love and Peace.

27 Oct 2014/Animal Healing

Today, I go to a home, an endearing home, where a little Human Animal is infatuated with looking into my eyes as I hum for her. She is getting her bandage changed for her 2 and 3rd degree burn. She is a very blessed little girl that carries the energy of a Swan. I actually gifted her a little golden one……I felt the need to pick it up from my altar before I even met her.
The family was lighting fireworks, the night of the Firework Diwali. Now, I have never met her before; however, the man I have been working in Reiki Healing, Spiritual MInd Treatment, Kundalini Meditations and getting ready to attune him to Karuna Reiki has. He was actually at the home when it happened.
This is the consciousness my husband and I felt when we were on the roof of our Homestay. We had just gotten up to the roof and stepped out. The daughter of the Homestay MadamJi yells, “look out!”, just as her friends begin to light a firework.
We hop back and move to the other end of the roof.
As we do, a flashing thought comes through my mind about a little girl, a dress, a fire, and our good friend. Immediately, I dismiss the thought to my Divine and ask for all Animals to be safe.
Later, my husband shares, he had a vision of a girl’s dress going up in flames.
The next day, at breakfast, this friend comes to table and says, “I got to go, my friend’s little girl’s dress went up in flames , I have to go change her dressing.” The absolute beauty that night is, he was the Calm in the storm, all the training he had been doing, paid off in a flash…….literally.
As the family is in panic, and the little girl goes into shock, his Reiki, and healing treatments went into full gear.
He asks me to come to help with the treatments; however, he has already done an incredible job. Just after 40 hours, there is no evidence of third degree burns. Then, today, there is no evidence of second degree burn.
The even greater beauty, is the girl is playing, resting comfortably, soaking up the energy, understanding without words, and the family is now open to embracing Spiritual Energy work beyond Western Medicine.
This little Human Animal was guided, and protected (It really could/should have been a lot worse) and is being the Swan Soul to heal the entire family.
Sometimes, what appears to be a bad situation, is actually a Golden Opportunity designed in the Mind Of God to bring about a Healing which ripples out to demonstrate the Power of God in so many ways, for many years to come. Just imagine, the Magic this family has witnessed, through her, and what she will do with this in the years to come!!

22 Oct/Fruit Bat and Ebola

The Bat, maneuvers through the darkness without sight. The Fruit Bat, or Megabat is the largest of all Bats. It feeds on the Fruit of Life. The Natural Sweetness. Metaphysically speaking, is about transformation, using the Sweetness of Life that It ingests to fuel Itself.
Many of the illnesses that have come through the human race have been localized, or special in their transmission, targeting certain groups, or transmitted in special ways, for special reasons. Many of the disasters that have happened, are also local, though they affect all of us, in some way, they are still very local.
This particular disease, has the potential to reach us all worldwide very quickly. Crossing borders of all countries, all classes of people. This makes Ebola having the potential to be a worldwide phenomenon. The potential to create a worldwide response.
The fact that a Fruit Bat, affected a child first, the innocence of Life, and created a worldwide response makes It a very special Life Transforming call to our Oneness with all of Life. The Animals have always been a pure example of how Consciousness effects us all. The Animals have always been the message givers if we but listen to them.
The Bat, demonstrates how going through the Darkness of the Night, when One uses their Inner Hearing for the way of Truth, one can navigate into the Rising Sunrise.
The Darkness of this Illness will pull all of our resources as a World Consciousness together to remind us that loving and caring for each other, no matter the country, no matter the race, is the Sweetness of Life, the Love, we need with each other, to survive as One Planet, as One Loving, Compassionate Consciousness. This is very auspicious in a time of the Golden Age, a time of a Oneness Global Consciousness. May we all, not as separate ourselves in isolation as races, or countries, come together in our Oneness and demonstrate the Purity of our Hearts and use the Fruit in our Hearts to be Earthlings of Love in this World.
