This weekend I was able to participate in a very special event. We already had this virtual retreat last year and this year again 21 animal communicators from all over the world met to talk to 21 animals together and at the same time for a total of 8 hours over 2 days. We had contact with dogs, cats, horses, a duck, dwarf hamsters and a puma, some still alive, some already deceased. The animals taking part were all our own and the event organiser, my mentor Joanne Yeoh, met with them in advance and asked them what they would like to talk to us about.
The questions were again so incredibly varied and exciting! I am always amazed at how creative our animals are and what topics they would like to talk about.
Here is an excerpt from the tasks they gave us:
My Ida wanted to talk about whether she rather leads or follows and what actually makes a good leader.
Maja wanted to talk about what actually makes a strong family.
A tomcat would like to write a book with his human about how cats and humans live together and we should work out the chapter titles together.
A dog would like to create an oracle deck and tell us the themes and affirmations of the individual cards.
A cat would like to tell us what qualities she has in common with “Catwoman” and what missions and adventures she would most like to go on.
A dog wanted to explore with us what it means to be sensitive.
We talked to a rambunctious cat about freedom and what he appreciates about the different seasons.
A dog wanted to create a safe retreat for her human, where she feels secure and can recharge her batteries.
Together with a tomcat, we were able to experience the emotions he resolves for his humans and how he heals and supports them.
A mare shared with us what it is like to be a horse and what she loves most about her body.
With a dog, we created a biscuit recipe and she told us what ingredients must be included, what shape she loves and how she likes her dog biscuits best.
A female cougar, who is already on the other side, talked to us about the whispers of the day and the whispers of the night and how differently our souls meet then.
For me, it was particularly fascinating to talk to a cat who was blind from birth. I always thought that I had relatively little visual reception, but he proved me wrong. The experience of sharing with him was also very different from animals who lose or diminish their sight as they grow older, as he has been experiencing and sorting out the world without visual stimuli from the start.
Then I would like to share with you what Tusnelda, a muscovy duck, told me about the importance of motherhood: What are my priorities as a mother? How is it different from the human species?
Her top priority is to keep her children safe, to protect them. Safety for her is not only about threats from the outside, but also about meeting the basic needs of the children.
She wants them to be strong and able to take care of themselves. She wants to pass on her own knowledge. With humans, she feels that we are more likely to pass on what is important to others, thereby not encouraging our children to listen to themselves. They remain dependent on us and on others. But of course, the most important thing for human mothers is the safety and protection of their children.
I am so grateful and happy that I have the opportunities to keep learning and I have such great human and animal teachers by my side!
Love and light to you and your animals
