Have you ever met a person that appears happy all the time? You know the one that doesn’t react to traffic, screaming babies and illness with complaints and a negative attitude? These people have found their inner peace.
Peace is defined as “a state of being mentally and spiritually at peace, with enough knowledge and understanding to keep oneself strong in the face of discord or stress.” Some people believe that inner peace is a state of consciousness or enlightenment that can be cultivated by various forms of training, such as prayer, meditation, and yoga. I have tried all of these but when I recently reflected on my path to inner peace, I realized it all started with my first horse.
Ok so this is not related directly to animal communication but it does have the potential to impact everyone and every animal on this planet.
Billions in Change is a movement to save the world by creating and implementing solutions to the most basic global problems – water, energy and health. Doing so will raise billions of people out of poverty and improve the lives of everyone – rich and poor.
Manoj Bhargava was a monk for 12 years, and now owns one of the most successful energy drink companies in the world. His current net worth is $4 billion. The good news is he has pledged to give 99 percent of his $4-billion net worth to charity.
Watch the trailer and see for yourself what an inspiration this man is to the world…
If you have found yourself here reading this article then there’s a good chance you are a big lover of all animals. As an animal communicator I understand how we can live better lives with animals, whether they are pets of wild animals. Teaching children about compassion with animals is very important as they are the next generation, so a whole lot depends on them having a deeper understanding of our furry friends. Thankfully there are people out there who are dedicating their time to this, and I was fortunate to come across Susan Keefe the other day who is taking a very creative approach to it. Read the interview to find out how Susan is bringing awareness to the younger generation, and helping animal shelters out at the same time…
Susan can you describe how your love of animals came about?
All my life I have loved all animals, and have been lucky enough to live in the country. My family always had pets, I loved walking our Labrador Kim, and adored horses. My dream of owning one was finally fulfilled aged 14. My brother and I spent hours over the fields watching wildlife and this is something I enjoy doing now with our Border Collie Toby.
My paternal Granddad William Spore was a real countryman and from an early age I can remember walking round the field with him learning about squirrel’s dreys, where to find ducks eggs, and how to recognise various birds and wild animals.Read More »
Where has the love gone in August and September?! Fear not, we’re back this month with a brand new Volunteer of the Month who we shall shower with love. This is none other than the lovely Karen Wickerson!
Karen started out with VOKRA as a foster parent in April 2014 and, like most other volunteers, she soon foster failed and adopted two kitties – and they’re sisters!
While volunteering as a foster parent, Karen was also doing her studies in energy medicine through Healing Touch for Animals. She got in touch with our Karen Duncan and offered her help as an animal communicator and energy therapist to help kitties release trauma, physical injuries, loss and grief, and behavioural difficulties. To this day, she still provides an immense amount of help at our Operations Centre helping other foster parents who are experiencing difficulties with their foster kitties. She is a very appreciated…
Every day we have moments filled with things in our lives to be grateful for.
Test it out for one day, for one afternoon or for just one hour; Set the intention to notice the moments you are grateful for. Then, as you go along say “thank you” for everyone of those moments, being as specific or none specific as you like – saying out loud or just inwards, and see how it feel s during or your hour, afternoon, day. It is literally counting the blessings we have, no matter how our life looks, as we go along.
I have tried keeping a gratitude journal as I have read and also heard from a lot of friends and collegues that it really does work. It is a beautiful thing to take that moment at the end of the day, to sit down with your pen and notebook and note…
