I started this blog three years ago when I lived in Rockbridge county Virginia. From my hilltop home, over looking the inspiring Blue Ridge Mountains, I reflected on my many years of living in the crowded, chaotic Washington, DC suburbs. My heart opened up to the plight of all the wild animals whose habitat and trail ways were being decimated in order to put more humans, their houses and cars on the planet.
As people became increasingly fascinated by electronic gadgets like I-Phones, Texting, Apps etc. – their appreciation for the difficult trials that our wild animals face began to disappear. Seeing animals hit and killed on our roads became more and more of a daily sick acceptance. And the human attention span ignored the needs of wildlife who are forced to cross our impossibly chaotic roads.
With my first book, Mystical Animals of Ancient Oak about to be published on Kindle and Barnes and Noble Nook Press- I am determined to raise human consciousness to a new level about what we have long forgotten. Our priorities need to shift back into compassionate awareness.
In my first book, I chronicle the stories of many animals, through insight, honor, humor, mystical occurrences and compassion. I learned to stop everyday and find time to enjoy nature – even if just for a few minutes. It is profoundly important to slow down, honor life and enjoy nature. This is part of our heart and soul.
I want readers to take time every day to notice the animals and wildlife around them and honor their daily passages. Our world will transform when we all learn to be more respectful and life affirming to one another as well as animals.
If you have stories about your own healing experiences with animals, please share them on my blog.
