"The Power Of Prayer: Do Animals Pray?"
Chase is a 2 year old Quarter horse. His personality brings an enthusiastic “shoot from the hip” attitude to his communications.
“I’m very excited to be a part of this discussion. People have a lot of questions like this one, and here’s the place where they can finally be asked and answered. This article? This is where we animals can “lay our cards on the table” and show you what we’ve got to bring to the game of life.
“So let’s get started! Do animals pray? Sure we do! We pray, we just don’t do it quite the way you experience it. To give you a good Idea of what I mean, you’ve got to understand how animals see and experience this big old word. So I’m going to send Coryelle pictures of what I’m seeing right now and then she can explain it to you so that you can understand my experience of prayer from a human perspective.”
Coryelle explains: “At this very point I, Coryelle, began to see the view as if I was looking through Chase’s eyes. Every single thing I looked at had this glimmering, shimmering energy field around it, but was extremely clear in the middle of that entire glimmer. For example, when I looked at a tree in front of me, all around the tree was a white gold light, a shimmering field of energy that moved like heat coming off a hot highway. Somehow this made the tree appear crisp and sharply in focus, yet the outer edges shimmered.”
Chase continues: “So that’s how the world looks to us. Everything, no matter what it is, has this unending energetic field of white light around it. It’s a connection that binds us all together, one to another no matter if it’s person, or animal, stone, or a building. Everything has this vibrational energy field around it. Now for us THIS energy is sacred, it’s our church, so to speak, and we carry it around with us (and humans do too) wherever we go… Pretty cool huh?
When you’re tuned into it…when you feel it all the time…when you live your life surrounded by it, like we do, it puts you in a almost constant state of immense appreciation and overwhelming joy. Now, when you live your life in appreciation and joy, do you know what happens? You start to see any action as a way of giving thanks for the life you have and are living at the moment. You begin to see the Oneness (God) in all and everywhere. You start to see the Oneness in yourself and in those beings surrounding you. You’re seeing the shimmering energy field no matter where you are or what you’re doing, so then everything single thing that you do, that action itself becomes a prayer, it doesn’t matter how small it is either, it’s still a prayer.
So let’s take walking, many of you (depending where you do it) might not really think much of walking, and to some it might even be a chore. But to me, with every step I take, I see this wave of energetic, shimmering movement, and feel it running through my entire body. It’s reminding me with each step how connected I am to this big ball of energy we’re on right now, and I get a big feeling of appreciation. And it’s the same for breathing and hearing the sounds. Being with you, our people, constantly shows us animals how worthy, important, connected and blessed we are.
Do we pray for things? Yes we do, we pray for things for ourselves, for humans, for friends. It’s more done at the spur of the moment and in the instant it’s needed. We ask for something, sending it to the Oneness and then release it at the same time. We don’t hold on to the request and keep asking or demanding that it happen, we simply want, ask and then let it go.
Are we animals always this connected to the Universe? No, it depends on what’s going on with us at any given moment. Situations can come into our lives and either temporarily or permanently break us away from the connection or at least take our attention away from it so that we begin to forget it. When an animal goes through a rough time, they can forget how connected they really are (sound familiar, my human friends?) and that’s when trouble usually comes calling. We act out in ways that totally contradict our “connected” state, bringing into the mix things like severe fear, aggression, depression and yes, even losing the will to live. But given the chance and a little time we could reconnect and plug right back into the field whenever we want.
There are similarities between animals and humans, more than I think many of you realize. The point is that we can learn a lot from each other. We all have lots to share and teach one another, all we have to do is stay open to it all.”
If you would like to submit a photo for the May 2012 article
All photographs submitted MUST meet the following 2 criteria to be considered.
1. The photo must be in focus, and higher resolutions are preferable, (150 DPI or higher). The reason is your photo will be on the Bellesprit website and we want your animal friend to look their best.
2. Each photo should of ONE animal only. Please don’t submit group shots OR a person posing WITH the animal. Photos like these can make it difficult to clearly receive a single animal’s communications.
If you’ve previously submitted a photograph that has not been chosen, there’s no need to resend it, your photo is automatically put back into the pool for future articles.
“Heightening Awareness To The World Around You”
A Message From Owl
The animals have a vested interest in we humans growing above and beyond what we have been, for with any growth there is always a change of attitude that comes with it. The animals see this and are reaching out to help us.
Owl says: “This is a wonderful opportunity to bring this subject to the world of people, and it is my pleasure to do so.
The reason that I bring this subject to you is simply to assist those of you who wish it, to feel more connected to the world, more at ease with your place in it and help you in riding a shift of consciousness that is coming with more ease. The Shift of consciousness that I’m referring to is a change in previous ways of seeing, thinking, relating and feeling this world and its beings. Left behind are the boundaries of thinking and the walls that separate humankind from animal kind and humans from the earth.
In order to ride this shift with ease, it will benefit you to learn how to consciously heighten your awareness of the world around you, enabling you to ride this shift like currents of the wind, with a new confidence. So when others may be feeling in flux and out of sorts, it will bring to you into balance and create a more stable and centered foundation.
Here’s how you begin to heighten your awareness. Take a moment and stop, this is not mediation; it’s simply stopping where you are and what you are doing, and becoming aware of what is happening around you.
Take one sense and begin to bring it into focus by concentrating on it. Let it become more heighten, and clearer in focus, this is achieved by simply noticing it.
If, for example you have chosen to be conscious of sound, then become aware of what it sounds like right now around you. Even if you think there are no sounds you can usually hear something. If there are many then begin to focus your mind on one and one sound alone.
If the sense you choose is sight, then look around and begin to notice what is around you. Are there people? Are they busy or not? What are they doing? Are they rushing around, or they are quiet? What does either of those actions look like?
It doesn’t matter which sense you’re drawn too, heighten it by noticing it, and take ONE piece of what that sense is bringing to you and focus on it.
This is a marvelous way of keeping your focus and attention on the NOW, letting the past and the future fade away into the background.
This is important because it’s how we animals live our lives. We don’t worry about the past, the future is not here yet, but the NOW, that is where we are the most stable, the most comfortable, the most joyous.
Do this throughout your day no matter where you are. You will begin to discover that you are tuning yourself more and more into the NOW so when the shifts begin to occur in your life instead of being thrown off balance and uncentered, this technique will help you to bring, enabling you to ride whatever that is in life more easily, and effortlessly.
Why is this important?
As the shift becomes more prominent, the old way of disconnection and separation will cease to function as they have in the past. People may still choose to try to live their life in that state, but it will become more and more unsatisfying for you. It will be as if you are acting a character in a play that you have very little interest in, going through the motions and not really IN it. You can choose to stay and continue acting the old role, in the old play or you can choose to leave it behind, and discover a new role and a new stage where you have more excitement, satisfaction and connection. It is your choice to do whatever you like.
I bring this to you; for we animals see how some of you worry and feel uncertain and yes, how some of you feel your disconnection to us, and the world. We are not saying this in judgment of you only in honesty. But many humans are also letting us know that they are ready to walk with us in the time of connection. We just feel this. So we want to help, and heightening your awareness of the world will deliver to you more worlds of knowledge than you can imagine.“
“When translating from the mind of the animals, I translate their words exactly as they send them to me; I try to remain as pure to their words and phrasing as possible. Because of this you will sometimes see words that you believe to be don’t exist. They are not. These are the direct translations that I received from the animals so please honor them and take them as they are”. ~ Coryelle Kramer
