Man and dog on beach

I was in a supermarket buying groceries when I saw him. His body radiated despair and tension. Anger and tears swam together in his eyes. He turned bleakly to me, and admitted to being in hell. This was the third man in the supermarket who needed to speak to someone, and find some way out of the emotional jungle they were lost in. They all had different troubles. I could sense there were even more simmering within.

And I listened.  And I spoke.

Today, there were more men in trouble. Sadness, despair, fear , irritability, tension, frustration, lost – the shadows stalked them. And I could see it. Some at more breaking point than others. But none happy.  Fragility was the order of the weekend under the influence of the Merkabah energies.

This is the time that one of my mentors, Alberto Villoldo, foretold. He said that people would be deep in emotional crisis. Increasingly so.  And that the medicine people would be needed.   And so it has come to pass.  You might not be a trained shamanic practitioner. but medicine can come in the form of a sympathetic ear, or a touch, or a kindness.

I work for animals. But guess what happens to animals when people are in crisis? It happened to a dog today. Elderly, she had lost her person and I found her, confused, on the street. I waited, my senses tracking him, while I communed with her. “Where is he?” she asked. I saw her spirit lift and looked up. An unshaven man came towards us. “She’s going a bit deaf and blind,” he shrugged, tension and irritability etched in every feature. Here’s another one I thought, and then it came – the reason for his distress. I sent a wave of calm and love out to them both as they trundled off together.  Kindness begets kindness.

When someone else cares, it helps others care for themselves and their loved ones. When someone gives love, it is nourishment to help others keep going. If someone is appreciated and helped to find their inner light, it goes a long way to helping the healing of the individual – and the planet.  It is time for women to help the menfolk through their spiritual emergence. So many are waking up. And they are lost.

This is a time when we need to “love thy neighbour”. To watch out for your fellow species and help them do better. Give them love. Listen to them. The energy of this special astrology right now is very intense and very bright, and Light, being Love, brings up everything unlike itself for healing and release.

Speaking of animals, I was surprised and saddened to hear the word “competition” used in an animal advocacy context. Once again it showed me how important a spiritual path is for those working for the beloveds.  The energy of competition is old paradigm and the world of animal rescue, advocacy and rights, is about cooperation.  It is about humans forming a net so that that each precious soul can find safety. Competition comes from the idea of lack. It says, “There is not enough to go around.”  It makes it impossible to create a new paradigm and a new non violent world.  This way of thinking contributes to tension and fear and violence – the very thing we don’t need right now. The old paradigm is cruel to animals and has not made humans happy. It is imperative we change.

The truth is, there is plenty. Money is energy. But it takes the right mindset to attract it. It takes trust and faith while living in a society that fuels the lie of scarcity and fear. Money is one of our greatest spiritual teachers.

Old thinking is death to the human spirit.   It makes people old before their time.  And so many people are stuck in a cage of society’s making. They are stifled by programming and suffocated by conformity and our culture is devoid of useful solutions to help all humans find their way out of the jungle of unhappiness and despair.  If you watch TV, then the solution to problems is to drink, do drugs,  or …shoot someone .  Not very enlightened role models.   Further, people fear the freedom thinkers and the change makers. They unconsciously project their unhealed selves onto them. In Australia, we have the tall poppy syndrome. The pressure not to shine in any way is enormous.

But why is it important to swim against this tide? Why is it vital for animal advocacy that we rebel and be free? Because by flying like eagles above the ocean of seething negative thought forms, we find new trails and new bright paths to the new world. The gentle, kind world of new solutions and new ways of being.  Of greater respect for animals and the natural world, for unconditional love, for loving kindness, for peace.   We use the inspiration from the air currents and the sylphs of the air and we soar into the new Aquarian age on glossy wings, leaving a trail for others to follow.  We become the visionaries, the leaders and the wayshowers.

The world is in the biggest state of change it has ever been in. If you want to empower yourself for new paradigm thinking and living,  then please join us for a weekend of intense, but fun, shamanic training in Set Yourself Free.
