So many beings on our planet Earth right now are refocusing and redoubling their collective efforts as the paradigm shift from mostly shadow to a balance of light and shadow continues. You may think that this only involves human beings as we think of ourselves as the ones in charge and well, I suppose that’s true. At the very least it’s valid from the vantage point that it’s the human species that’s mucked up this planet resulting in the shrinking habitats and outright extinction of other animal species. Be that as it may, the good news is that humans are not alone in this dramatic recalibration of planetary energy. Most definitely animals are at our side assisting and supporting in whatever way they can. The key, of course, is whether we’ll let them do that for us and whether or not we see them as how they really are – intuitive guides in physical form on this planet.
“Whoa – wait – what?!” Yep, intuitive guides – you know, the ones we may refer to as angels, beings of light etc. and whatever other vernacular you may choose – whose souls and actual physical essence come from other planets just as ours do. The really interesting thing, though, is that it seems as if it’s their animal experience – the one we may perceive as being less than ours – which forms the very core of being guide-like on this planet. The more we look at their animal experience vs. our human experience I don’t think any other conclusion can be made.
The basis for this concept is in physics which for some of you – like me – is actually reassuring as a human. It offers me a firm leaping-off point from whence to jump with faith into non-ordinary reality such as animals being intuitive guides in physical form. They have solid mass in the form of physical bodies just as we do and because they have mass they also have energy that is identical to ours – it’s what they do with that energy that’s fascinating.
Think of a butterfly which definitely doesn’t start out as a butterfly, right? It starts out as a caterpillar complete with tons of legs, one long plumpish body, and fur. At some point some part of the DNA (just like we have DNA) of this caterpillar sends out a message for the building of a silky, tight-fitting chrysalis (or sometimes a cocoon) in which this animal will spend a good majority of its time actually reconfiguring its body into a body with wings so that it can fly – a process referred to as holometabolism. And the caterpillar/butterfly is not alone in this process of actually changing its body from one form into another.
Octopi (many octopuses) can actually change the color of their skin in order to match whatever surroundings it finds itself in so that it can hide from predators. Other cephalopods – squids etc. – can do this as well and they have a really nifty defense mechanism – their inky squirt – that is actually thicker than water so that it temporarily clouds the water so they can evade a predator. When was the last time you squirted ink, changed the form of your body or skin color? The list is endless, of course, about the abilities of our animal relatives to proactively work with and change their body chemistry – their actual energy mass – at will and with accordance of their surrounding environment. Is it not then a corresponding truth that they have a far greater and much deeper connection not only with themselves but with the world around them? And does it seem that the standard “but they don’t speak our language” falls away when we’re faced with such enormous obvious intelligence and ability? And please don’t also use the stale “that’s just Nature” because the way humans have defined the world is, I believe, fundamentally flawed. From our vantage point of desiring to be on top of all beings we put blinders on about all other beings because it’s convenient and because it makes us feel safe.
There’s a line from a song that’s part of the story “The Point” which is one of my all-time favorite reads. In the song the main character, Oblio, is talking to the Rock Man who is naturally, a pile of rocks. The line is “the thing is you see what you wanna see and you hear what you wanna hear – you dig?” On this planet I can think of no other more apt phrasing for our human experience. We do see what we want to see and what we want to hear in spite of evidence to the contrary about the abilities far above our own of our animal relatives. The exciting thing is that they’re always willing to speak with us about our shared life together and provide information and intuitive guidance from their much more elevated standpoint and they do it in such a way with compassion, humor and joy. The next time you’re looking at a member of another species I invite you to greet them and ask for whatever message they would like to share with you. Chances are you’ll be completely bowled over by what they communicate and also by the level on which they “speak”. Your own body will respond in kind because you share the same bio-electric field capable of “hearing” them and you will, in fact, have authentically connected with one of the true guides on our planet so get ready because they’re ready.
