Dear Spirit to Spirit friend,
If someone you didn't know were to ask you, "who are you?", you might pause and wonder how to answer that. You might talk about what your life is like- what you do, what you like, how you think and feel about things.
If that person was very open and welcoming, you might engage on a deeper level- speak about what's most important to you, how you see life, speak about your deeper beliefs. You might want to reveal more of what you feel is the essence of who you are.
The same is true of our animal family members. Because we have a living-life, day-to-day relationship with our animal family members, we often forget that there is a deeper question to ask, and we forget to ask it: "who are you...really, truly... in the depth of your being." We forget to give our animals the opportunity to reveal themselves to us in all their mental/emotional/spiritual/energetic beauty and uniqueness.
If we ask this question, we may be stunningly surprised by the one sitting in front of us.
Asking this question is an invitation- for us- to sit deeply, quietly, in an open and available heart space- free of assumptions, judgments and attachments- ready to receive the brilliant uniqueness that is this being. And, most wonderful of all is that our animal- and all animals- are waiting to be asked, waiting for the opportunity to reveal their extraordinary nature to us.
If we sit quietly, relax deeply, and put this question to our animal family member, s/he may take us beyond the ordinary level of our relatedness into a realm in which our souls open to each other in precious communion.
Can you imagine- what this might be like. Meeting your animal family member fresh and new, sensing/feeling who s/he is in ways that go beyond your ordinary level of connection.
So... simply relax and open to unexpected and miraculous connection that is already present...as you ask your animal family member..."who are you....deeply...truly."
You may discover something about him/her and yourself, beyond your wildest dreams.
In Gratitude & Love, Joanna
