I could have used the support of a rehab while I was in recovery from meat addiction in 1978. It was pretty lonely back then. Now, you can go online and instantly receive support and encouragement if you’re a vegan newbie, or wannabee. Thanks to All Creatures posting yesterday an article about the new book, […]
The Human-Animal Self
Almost Quit Veganism for Happy Organic Pasture Cows
Sometimes, I’m only human in forgetting that I’m an animal. When I disconnect from my sacred primal self, not only do I feel bored, I crave creamy comfort foods to nurture me in my dead zone. Today, during my disconnect with myself, my instant target fix was on butter. Online, I found Organic Pastures. I […]
Coming to Our Senses Re: Animal Intelligence
An old Scientific American article on animal intelligence, is largely about whales and the need for us to come to our senses in how we view animals. Reading it again is for me a soothing validation of what many of us know to be true about animals. And a confirmation of my own ‘sense-abilities’ as a small […]
Who’s the True Alpha Dog Here?
We get stuck in human mindsets. We look at a dog bullying and chasing other dogs. We think, wow, that’s a true alpha dog. We don’t question if that dog is in his true power. We don’t look beneath his bravado to see if he might in fact be scared and putting up a false […]
Animal communicators are skilled experts in animal communication, but sometimes only human in what they tell you.
Again, the limits of human logic: One late night, I got an emergency call from a client to tell me his cat had been missing for 3 days. He was freaked out, to say the least. I didn’t have the heart to ask him to wait until morning for a session when I would be […]
Animals are Our Best Communicators
Clear. Honest. Precise. To the point, with corresponding heartfelt emotion driving their point home. That’s an animal for you. You don’t have to be a professional animal communicator like me to know that. Nonhuman animals don’t put up smokescreens that lay heavily on our hearts snuffing out moments of Truth. We do. We’re polite. Each […]
Who’s That Ape in My Mirror?
I just signed a petition asking Air France to stop transporting primates for research labs. Not that any of us are totally innocent of the extreme cruelty inflicted on animals more or less a strand or two away from being human. Using primates, or any feeling, sensitive, heart-based animal – mice included – in research […]
Animal Communication: It’s Not Just About Your Pets
Animal communication is often about you. But you already know that. Your animals feel you. They want you to feel them. How? By being more like the animal you are born to be: present in your body, in your mind, in your heart…like an animal. Like your pets, your body is always sending out and […]
A friend was telling me how great he thinks the human spirit is in reference to the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti. It’s amazing how amazed people are when they see how people, after suffering horrific trauma, eventually feel reborn – empowered – with the help of millions of their own species supporting and […]
PBS’ flickering “Human Spark”
Narrator Alan Alda, makes a feeble attempt to make us feel good about defiling the world in the recent PSB video, “The Human Spark” that shows us we have two brain functions–insight and imagination–that separate us from (other)animals.Wrong. I know many non-human animals with insight and imagination capabilities equal to, if not superior to ours. […]
