Can you imagine life without animals?
I loved talking with Uma Valerie Carruthers, author of Roscoe Effect: Eternal Animal Truths to Transform Your Spirit. Why? Because she’s passionate about the importance of animals in our lives. In this GVK podcast, we swapped some great animal stories and shared what we learned.
I can’t imagine life without animals. And I’m not just talking about domesticated animals… I’m talking about all animals! I love sitting with nature and just listening to the birds; watching the insects scurry, build and burrow; becoming friends with the squirrels, chipmunks, raccoons, skunks or whatever happens to be hanging out in my energy field. Animals are part of the very fiber of my being and utterly important to my existence.Man is a two-legged animal without feathers. – Plato #quote #xoK Click To Tweet
As we awaken—as we become more conscious in our spiritual nature and live as spiritual beings as opposed to human beings—we begin to understand that we’re connected to everything. Everything communicates with us as we do with them.
The animal world shows up to bring us love, mirrors things we need to transmute and moves us into an elevated vibration. They teach us compassion, forgiveness and unconditional love. They open our heart chakras.
When I was living in Boston, one of my coworkers came into work crying. I went to comfort her and find out what was wrong. She told me that on her way to work she saw a group of people gathered around a large cube of compacted garbage. From inside that cube were the cries of a cat that had somehow gotten compacted within the garbage, but was still alive.
People were frantically taking turns ripping the garbage away to get to the cat. The police had been called and were on their way to help. My coworker had been helping, but couldn’t stay because she was already late for work. I assured her that people would stay until that cat was free. On her lunch break, she went out to the spot —the people were gone, the was cat gone and there was a large whole in the garbage cube.
Every person who helped that cat had a heart opening. That cat affected a positive change of love in each and every person who helped it to its freedom. Some people opened up to more compassion and love, some were freed from something that bound them, while others were left with a sense that they matter in this world. Lives were changed. All of them. With the help of one little cat…
