The Deep Peace Movement Gets Going!

The Billie Dean International Deep Peace OrganisationAs I said in my blog, I am completely ready for large action, and just saying “no” to animal cruelty. Something has to shift. How about the entire paradigm? I’ve been saying for years that the astrology of this time was going to be like the 1960s on speed, so why not massive change for animals? It is the right time! I see the government saying “sorry” to them for taking away their children and forcing unspeakable horrors onto them. I see them being treated with respect and reverence. I see an entirely different world to the one we have now and that is what the Deep Peace Movement is all about — helping to create that new world of harmony, peace and respect.

I have a number of initiatives I would like to get going with. I need supporters to help with these initiatives. It’s all urgent. Animals are suffering every day, hoping that someone will help them. It’s time to do more. Compassionate action is a measure of our humanity.  By continuing the cycles of violence, pain and suffering, we live with shame and despair tainting our hearts and souls.  Governments are slow to change.  We just have to take really big action and show the world we are serious about animals and willing to put our lives where our hearts are.  It’s time for people power.

If you want to support, now is the time.  Contact me with Deep Peace Team in the subject line.  And if you havent heard from me within 24 hours, send it again. We need the Deep Peace Team now!

We need animal lovers, event organisers and fund raisers, networkers, connectors, artists, thinkers, web designers, social media folk – whatever you are good at, I’m sure you can help. If you have passion for animals, peace and freedom, speak to me.  Further, people know people know people and that is how a beautiful network comes into being on silver threads of love and mutual compassion and action.  Let’s get together – Deep Peace Team.Yay! Time to rebel. Time to create beauty and peace and raise consciousness and light.

Further, brumby culling starts up again soon and we are looking for land for horses to run free.  Wouldn’t it be lovely to say “No more culling. Sorry. Unacceptable. If you don’t want the horses, we’ll take them.”  Already, a truckload of unwanted stallions, colts, and horses two and over went to slaughter. Easter gave us a reprieve. But trapping is supposed to resume the second week of May. (Say it with me, “Unacceptable.”)

I know the racing industry is responsible for tens of thousands of good souls dying every year (and I want to contribute to stopping that suffering too), but I looked at my gentle wild stallion, young colts (in the garden as we speak) and young mares, and I started crying. That is a call to action. We can’t pretend it isn’t happening. We have to say “no”. Collectively, we can make a difference.  Our wild horses were so frightened when they arrived, bunching up together, not quite trusting they were safe. Merlin the stallion was first out of the truck and he called the others and told them it was safe to follow him. It was so moving, I am tearing up now. He knew where he was and took everything in his stride. I can only imagine their brothers and sisters and kin are the same. They are not pests and they, contrary to popular belief, live very lightly on the land. They are part of the land. And these are just some of the things they talk to me about.

There was a heart warming story on my Facebook wall about a bull who started crying as men took him to the slaughter house. They were all so moved, he won himself sanctuary at a monastry.

But what about all the other animals who also cry? This suffering has to end. I had the worst day yesterday with Spirit urging me to further action – passing sad cattle in sale yards, distressed sheep stuffed into a truck, legs sticking out, their innocent gentle eyes beseeching me  as I sent them love, tears pouring down my face.  I was so distressed by their suffering, I absorbed it all and flew out of my body.  It took me a long time in the city to come back to myself. Then, driving home, there was a circus with animals, and really unhealthy people at the frozen (mostly meat) section of the IGA. It  was a shock for me to see so many huge, unhealthy people in one area on a random Tuesday night. How do I know they are unhealthy? They were terribly overweight (and I track auras, etc.), but one woman when I numbly pointed to my vegan patties as a suggestion for her dinner (she was asking aloud) said she would like to stick them in the microwave (noooooo) before she went to the doctor. That was Spirit telling me how much work there is ahead of us to teach people about nutrition, the health benefits of a cruelty-free diet, and cutting down on EMR.  Sorry, I do not nuke my food.

Finally I got home to a message that one of the dogs I was trying to save ( in California) had been killed in the pound because he was too scared.  Well duh, wouldn’t you be?  This mentality of killing, killing, killing has to end. Fortunately, this dog’s sister was saved.  It is truly time for change, people power!!!

I am still in the middle of trying to help stop some sheep and cattle going to slaughter, trying to stop the brumbies being culled, trying to raise finance and secure land and do real education programs through the arts and media that will help mainstream see animals in a new and more refined light.  This is the mission of the Deep Peace Organisation – fostering global peace and freedom for animals through the arts, education and compassionate action.  I need help – no one can do this kind of work and change alone.  I need the Deep Peace Team.

It’s time for dreams to be realised and we have long held a dream of expanding A Place of Peace sanctuary and creating an education/retreat centre.  Help me save some farm animals and help other farmers make the transition to new and clean, happy, light ways of being with the land and animals.  Yes, I have big dreams and visions.  Can you help?  This is a call for action.  (Donations can be made here.)

Looking forward to hearing from you all – even those beautiful, big hearted students of mine who are already involved and helping.

Thank you all for being you.

A New Era for Animals – questions and answers

Billie Dean On Screen at Awakening to Animals with A New Era for Animals presentation

On Screen at Awakening to Animals with my presentation A New Era for Animals.

Andrew and I made a film presentation of my talk for the inaugural Awakening to Animals Conference in the UK. (The photo, by David Bell, is me on the screen as the talk was shown.) We were in the middle of flooding rains and Spirit and dogs had advised me to stay home.   The bridge was 1.2 metres under water. So I was glad I listened and we got this film presentation made. That is the beauty of listening. And now this film presentation can be seen by others to help them see the world differently and help bring in A New Era for Animals.

The line up for this conference was fabulous with Margrit Coates, UK animal telepath and healer, Richard Deboo of the Animals Count Party, and others.   It sounded like an awesome time was had by all, and as animals were still on the menu, my talk about peace for all species incited a lot of debate apparently! And there were those who wrote to me and told me how they were touched, inspired and moved by the film  and my thoughts and ideas. My skype connection didn’t work, as the Conference was held in a remote and beautiful part of England (sigh – will have to visit another time!), so the organisers kindly collected questions and let me put them in a (see below). There were several questions in the same vein, which showed me the amount of resistance in the room to some of the ideas that I expressed.

As you know, I am a big advocate for not eating animals for so many reasons including the more esoteric one that if we are to have peace, allowing negative thought forms from fear to create etheric toxic pollution is counter-productive (I talk about this in Secret Animal Business). It made me so grateful that I was able to express my experiences, stories and vision for a new paradigm, because this is how change happens – by planting seeds, by giving people something to think about, by discussion and debate, and each person telling their story.  As an empath and natural telepath, I feel hear and see the animals, and they have been asking me to stop their suffering for two decades now, and this has shaped my life and work.  Hats off to Julie Lines, Elaine Downs and Sue Reid the conference organisers, who did something incredibly brave and wonderful by inviting people of differing opinions to spark this kind of debate and create waves of social change through discourse and ripples. I am incredibly proud of them and I was so honoured to be part of this fantastic event and to connect with others who are working for social change in their own ways and in their own fields.

******

Thank you all for so many wonderful questions.  I wish I had been able to discuss and debate with you in person. Here are the questions and my responses:

Q: We agree with all your wise words – would like to recommend a book to you The 30 Minute Vegan by Mark Reinfeld. A totally fab book. (Amazon link added)

A: Thank you!!  I’ll check it out!

 

Q: How do we/can you explain cruelty between animals?  EG. killer whales toying with seals before they kill them?  wasps laying eggs in live caterpillars to be eaten alive – many other examples of apparent cruelty – especially amongst predators?

A: First up, one has to understand life from an esoteric viewpoint. When homo sapien violence is the dominating thought and action, the collective consciousness becomes one of violence.  When it is is one of peace and compassion, even the animals we think of as predators will shift their behaviour.  This is why it is important to refrain from killing and violence.  This is what the shift of consciousness to an age of peace is about.

 

Q: Deep peace for all species so that we humans stop eating animal species killed in fear, OK.  But what about the vegetable species eaten and killed in fear?  How is it different to rip out a carrot or radish from the ground and its roots and eat it?  Or to cut the head of a lettuce from its root?  Or to pick an unripened fruit from its branch and eat it?  How is that different from cutting the head off a duck and eating it?  Daniel.

A: My experience is that this is a question that usually comes from meat-eaters who just want to stir the pot and muddy the water!  It is a defensive reaction to a peaceful path.

There were several similar questions so I am going to answer them all right now with one simple paragraph:

I made my presentation to a conference called “Awakening to Animals”.  If people are really interested in the plant kingdom’s response to these questions, then I will point you to my upcoming book The Deep Peace Project which does indeed, cover this in depth. It will be out in May, 2012.

 

Q: 12 miles from where I live their is an abattoir where I believe 7000 pigs are killed every day.  Lorries taking pigs there pass my bungalow – I say to the pigs you’ll go to a better place and I pray to the Divine Creator please accept and help these beings.  Do you have any messages I can send to them?  Amelia says animals do go to places of joy.  Annabel

A: Actually Annabel, this is a wonderful question you have brought up and something I go into great detail in my school Rainbow Fianna where students are helped to become comfortable with the death process, and journey to discover the path beyond death.

One of the greatest things you can do for those pigs is to help raise awareness that they are sentient beings and to encourage people to stop eating them.  You can bless them, and pray for them.  You can tell them you have great love for them.  Love is a very powerful force. Tell them you are actively trying to help change life for their species and that you care deeply about their plight.

But you have to know that pigs are a very intelligent species and it doesn’t take much to put ourselves in their shoes.  Esoteric teachings teach that the density around slaughterhouses creates what we call a “wall of suffering”, as the thought forms of fear and horror go out into the world.  This “wall” in turn creates anxiety and depression in humans. I talk about this in my book Secret Animal Business.

Sadly it is also my experience that millions of souls who die before their time and in conditions like this are wandering the earth, earth bound.  It is my part of my own work to release as many to the light as possible and I do this in ceremony. Human souls are the same.  So I’m afraid many animals do not go to a place of joy.  The best death is a natural one, where souls are at peace and free to leave their bodies through the higher chakras.

After death, there are places of great joy – but it depends on the individual soul and their experience of life and the way they died. Many souls end up caught in what are commonly known as the bardo planes.

The shamanic viewpoint is that there is an animal plane. However many shamanic cultures also believe in the transmigration of souls, which has been my personal experience as well.  So the pig going to the abattoir might have, in one life time, been a friend or a relative.  You just don’t know till you ask.

 

Q: More females are open to your ideas.  I find men very difficult to get through any of these ideas.  Classed as silly female sentimentality.  Any ideas on how to get through to the male mind?!!

A: Another great question, thank you.

Speaking very, very generally and with great apologies to the many men, including my husband Andrew, who are awake and sensitive, here is my answer:

The Divine Feminine which is inside both sexes, has been suppressed by the Church and this goes way back to our Origin story.  Adam and Eve.  Eve was naughty and humans punished because of this evil woman, to a life of suffering. I know this is the abridged version but the point is – it is just one version of our Origin and it is one in which women are painted in a bad light.  Look at any indigenous Origin story and you will find a different one.

According to indigenous prophecy and channeled wisdom, the Divine Feminine is rising again in all of us now.  It is up to the women in whom this is flowering to be a shining light. When you are strong in your light and your wild, creative, instinctive nature, it will trigger the same in men.  You will either have lots of fights, or you will have an incredible partner who you can stand beside, strong together.

So, work on your self and be strong.  Continue to walk the talk, not just talk it.  Be all you can be – a creative goddess!!  You will find yourself surrounded by like-minded souls.  The close-minded will fall away from your circle. If someone is stuck in their belief system, nothing you can say or do will convince them – unless perhaps you take them to an abattoir.  In Australia, people are waking up in huge numbers because one brave woman from Animals Australia, filmed the cruel demise of Australian cattle in Indonesia.  Live export is now under fire and many Australian men, have been touched by this atrocity.  Change is happening.

The other thing you can do is ask them why they don’t want to stand side by side great thought leaders like Gandhi, Pythagorus, Einstein, Shaw and so many other men who stood for animal rights.  If they think these men are “sentimental”, then it shows you who they really are.  Truly, walk your talk and be a shining example of compassion.  Others around you will one day awaken.

 

Q: Please may we have a transcript of your final message as we couldn’t hear it due to the sound quality of that part?  Thanks Rosemary.

A: Thank you for wanting this again.  This is the end of my talk.  It is copyrighted, so please acknowledge this if you reproduce it.

“I believe that within every single human being is a seed – a kernal of love and goodness, kindness and compassion, of knowing what the right thing to do is, and that the human spirit is yearning to find peace on all levels and in every cell.

“I believe that one of the reasons animals touch our hearts so deeply is that they embody the very qualities that we know are buried deep within us.  The qualities that have been shrunk and frozen through and by fear.

“This year is the year of Neptune in Pisces, it is the year of the Water Dragon.  The illusion of fear and suffering will be destroyed if we allow the rain and the water of this time, to melt this block and allow our seeds to grow into beautiful flowers.

“When human beings have the courage to step away from their old karma, and to forgive others and bless them, and to focus ,not on the old world of despair, but the new world of peace for all species, we will live in a world of beauty and grace.  For all species.”

— Billie Dean

 

Q: Is it wrong, in your opinion, for other animals to kill other animals?  I find it hard to understand why it would be wrong, as this is nature’s circle of life, interdependency on others to support and nurture life.  I totally agree about stopping the cruel methods of keeping and killing animals that humanity has adopted but I feel that the eating of animals and vegetables/fruit is a part of the circle of life. If we were to stop eating all sentient life, we would starve to death.  For me death is not a dirty word, or something we can avoid, it is inevitable and is an essential part of the physical experience. Dying surrounded with love and compassion is surely what we aspire to?   Is it truth that any being could die without an element of fear, as pain is often a part of death and we also have fear of the unknown, at least in humans.  If you watch an animal being brought down to be killed and eaten by another, they are deeply fearful too in those moments before death.  If we die of what we label “natural causes” is there not still fear in most?  Is fear itself something we will ever be able to move away from in the moments before the transition to death?

A: Another good question – several questions!  But  framed from a particular viewpoint which is not my truth.  I have watched many animals die naturally and peacefully with full acceptance.  They meet the light and there are always members of their family and friends to meet them. Many animals know when their time is coming and I will see them exchanging thoughts with others, as well as others I cannot see.  It is truly beautiful, and they are not afraid.  They are matter of fact.  But then these are the ones being held with hands of love.

As to the questions about death and survival and eating, this is a huge topic and I suggest you study with Rainbow Fianna, if you are a serious student.  The only reason we have the model of killing to survive is because most people are stuck in the mindset that this has to be so.  And so it is.  When you truly awaken to an enlightened path you will see and understand the other choices which are embracing of all species.  Again, see my forthcoming book, due out in May.

This world is truly an illusion created by our thoughts and our words, actions and deeds.  We can change this world to something far more beautiful and graceful if people just have the courage to dream beyond what is already around them, to something far, far better.

No, You are Not Going Insane

Road and Sky, by Billie Dean

I was talking on the phone to a fellow horse rescuer when, suddenly, the world shifted and I fell into a conscious faint, heading for the newly painted old kitchen cabinet sitting on the verandah. I was able to stop myself in time and carried on the conversation as if nothing had happened. Perhaps this dizziness was part of the flu? Was I, more worriedly, reacting to the phone’s EMR?  Or perhaps it was related to an earthquake.

I have felt Earth Changes within my own body before, but this was almost a total loss of consciousness – except I didn’t lose consciousness.

Much dizziness and some dog squabbling (which is always a sign of Earth Changes in our household) later, I learned that, indeed, we had earthquakes happening in a major way all around the planet.

So many sensitive people have reported dizziness, headaches, feeling faint, panic-like attacks, fatigue, restlessness, frustration, irritability and more.  And it is all connected to our Mother Earth going through her shifting.

When you can feel Her, and the animals do feel Her too, you can begin to see how we are so incredibly interconnected and how we are all One.  “What we do to the Earth, she does to us.  It’s that simple.”  These are the words of Hawaiian Elder Haleaka Iolani Pule Dooley, in our film This Sacred Earth: The 2012 Phenomenon.

So when these symptoms happen, I really urge you to find your centre and be peace.  This is not a time to panic and add to the fear which is polluting the planet like toxic waste.  It is time to take time out.  Meditate.  Be still.  Croon soothingly to the organism which is our Mother Earth,  as well as to your own body.  Nurture.  When we still ourselves, we send that message of love and peace to our Mother.

If all 7 billion humans did this on a daily basis, the world would be a very different place.  Perhaps the only reason we have any stability at all is because the so many animals hold the energy for us.  The ones who are at peace anyway.   Think for now of the cattle  and sheep grazing quietly in a paddock.   Their serenity is palpable.   But then so is their fear when hauled out of their peaceful connection with Mother Earth, by rough handling humans, and sent to a horrible, frightening, dreadful death.   Another big reason  to go vegan.

Since the Equinox, and that beautiful big Easter Full Moon, we have had a major shift.   The planets are finally in forward movement.   The first part of the year was like a big shedding.  All old karmic loops were given a shake up and shake out.   I was told in no uncertain terms to stay home, be still, listen to my spiritual lessons (from the trees, spirits of place , the animals and fae), take copious notes and expand my heart chakra.  I was not to be distracted.

Of course when Spirit says “don’t be distracted” one tends not to think “uh oh – big distraction coming.”  Of course there was and a career opportunity came– and went.  One which at any other time in my life I would have leapt at.  Was I insane?

I let it go because it is more important to be spiritual  in 2012..  And I sensed that if I took this career opportunity I would not be able to focus on doing my spiritual work .  It would take me away from the animals in my care, and would have been a lot of pressure with the prize ultimately being  a major distraction from my true path and my destiny.  Which has nothing to do with careers and bright lights.

When I thought about it I saw it as a test.  I saw it belonged to 3D.  And I was grateful I let it go.

The world has changed.   The old world and the way things used to work, no longer serve us and it is time to step off the merry-go-round and out of the box.  It is time to step out of denial and follow our heart.  The truth of our heart.  It is time to say “no” to all those societal injustices and stop lamenting ” this is the way it has always been done.”  The way it has always been done, has proven to be incredibly detrimental to our Mother, the animals, the plants and ourselves.  Humans have to wake up and change.  Now.  We have quite simply run out of time and excuses.

For me it is much more important to focus on the big picture of social change and human evolution than a career path I once thought was important.   In my blog and teachings I have talked a lot about the need for us all to become more and more authentic, getting down into our true essence so that we can become peace and go up into the next dimension.

When the last shift happened, I noticed another change.   I could not tolerate ANY animal cruelty.  It made me feel physically ill.  It was time to say NO, and rebel against a draconian old mindset.  We’ve been talking about how wrong this is for centuries.  It hasn’t changed.  So now is the time to just become steel.  It is time for Big action. It is time to force change.   I am currently working on a couple of big initiatives which I hope will bring more a bit more peace to this world, and I’m doing it because of the steel of resolution that has moulded inside me.  Courage comes from conviction.  I believe it is unacceptable to cause suffering to the non humans who share our Mother Earth.  And that is that.

I realised that if others had  similar steel, revolution could be quick, and the Golden Era of Peace could be realised.  I clearly saw a world populated by people of courage and conviction – who would live in harmony with each other and other species, because they had fought for change and won.  There are  a lot of talkers in this world.  The ones who will forge this path of peace, will be the ones who walk it.

Last night, I was listening to an interview with Drumvalo Melchizadek, who echoed my understanding of this time of social revolution.  He said women would become strong and just say “no”.  And through this we would see social change.  So I am happy to announce from my own internal radar, that this is happening.  That’s exciting.

He also said that there could be several big “events”, and the way to survive them was to go to the next dimension.  So many of us are being prepared for this right now.  We  are being moved into “position” to hold the light.  The fae call this process of dimensional moving,  alchemy.  This is  an internal process of light – inner change.  They tell me to work on my heart chakra and keep surrendering and keep trusting.   Alchemical changes are also happening through exposure to the sun’s rays, especially during the solar flares.  Drumming, chanting, forgiveness, committing to a non-violent, cruelty-free path, drinking in the information from the sun, meditation and working with the light body are some of the things we can be doing right now.  So my sense is that many of us will become a lot lighter  during the big solar flare season coming this (southern hemisphere) winter.  Hang on to your hats!!

The other thing he said  was that the Mayans are celebrating the end of the calendar on December 21, 2012 – a normal kind of completion ceremony.  But on December 22, they are celebrating the beginning of the new time, the new era of peace! I love that, and will be working on those two days with those thoughts with whomever I am sharing the time with. How exciting!  Party!!

What Drumvalo was saying really coincides with a very intense astrological period.  There’s creativity and grace and possible drama and chaos.  There is definitely change. One of the anticipated dramas is the possible meltdown of computers and communications due to unprecented solar fllare activity.  Here’s a hint: buy journals and remember how to use a pen!  I know, old fashioned!

The other bit of news I found interesting came from here at A Place of Peace.  One of our horses, Hedgerose, came down with an abscess, which can be nasty and painful for horses.   She was limping badly one day, and the very next, when I came to treat her, the abscess had already popped.  “Things are healing quickly now,” she said to me.  Normally I would have been giving her homeopathic Silicea or Hepar Sulph or both, for days.

So please remember this. Feel free to indulge in your dis-ease if it gets more of what you need, but really, you can heal more quickly now!

I also had a request for prayers for a dying horse in Adelaide.  The vet wanted to put him down and his person was desperate to save him.  He went into our prayers during our Full Moon Ceremony and I was thrilled to receive a stunned email from his person saying he was making a rapid recovery!!

Note: We always work with permission – healing happens only to those who want to heal. Many  animals indeed are crossing right now.

A note about the animals and behaviour:  If animals are behaving “badly” please be mindful.  The solar flares and earthquakes and general unsettledness is making everyone tense and the animals will be your best radar if a disaster is happening, so be mindful of them.  They are not trying to annoy you, they are communicating with you. We had a couple of dogs who are best of friends fly into fight  in the kitchen. They didn’t hurt each other, but it alerted me that something was up.  The next day there was the earthquake news from Indonesia.

In short, the guidance I’m receiving right now continues to be keep surrendering and allowing a life of love, peace and grace.  Tend to your foundation with survival supplies, extra torches and whatever you need in case supplies are cut off for a period of time for whatever reason, and take time to practise stillness and LIstening.  Honour your animals, and let their wisdom and intelligence guide you.  And keep your frequency compass attuned to joy, love and peace.   Learn to act on your instincts and intuition.  The dance of life is about being in the moment, honouring the wisdom of your heart intelligence, and understanding that the world is changing every minute, so surf,and glide with glee.
