Hope & Euthanasia

One day I made a connection* with a female bulldog called Hope. Jamie, her gardian, had asked me for a connection because she wanted to know if she had made the right decision in having her dog euthanized because of a cancer. Jamie was struggling with a strong feeling of guilt. Not being sure that euthanasia had been the right decision, she was suffering a great deal. When I made the connection with Hope, the first information I received was about the details of her illness before she died. My purpose here is not to go into medical situations; I just want to share my feelings regarding euthanasia and whether one is ready or not for it since many people have asked me that question.

Hope’s metastases had spread throughout her body which caused her a lot of pain and suffering. It was impossible, therefore, that she could have remained alive much longer. Hope had tried to stay alive as long as possible for the sake of her guardian who was not ready to see her depart and therefore she had clung to life in spite of her illness. Very often animals wait to depart until their guardian is ready to see them go. They don’t have the same view of departing that we have: they don’t suffer from the same anxiety and fear facing the unknown that we humans do. Once they are ready to go, they can leave their bodies.

Today, modern medicine allows sick animals to prolong their lives. Also, domestic animals share our lives much more than in the past. For all of these reasons, when they are very sick and would normally be ready to depart, they stay on because we humans are not ready to see them go. We are afraid of death, afraid of the unknown, afraid to make the decision concerning euthanasia. Do we or do we not have the right to put the animal out of its suffering? Above all we are afraid of losing the unconditional love that animals give us and to be unable to live without it.

When I made the connection with Hope, I saw that she was ready to go and was waiting for her guardian to be ready as well. Was Jamie really ready to let her go? No, we are never ready for the departure of a being we love dearly. Jamie would never have been ready emotionally, but there was a point where she was able to accept the situation: that point was when she was obliged to face the reality of Hope’s departure because Hope was suffering too much. When Jamie reached that point of acceptance and resignation, Hope was also able to leave. Somewhat like a boat tied to the shore, the point is when that knot is untied. Once that knot is untied, euthanasia is no longer a death sentence, but becomes a gesture of compassion. The boat can then slide gently into the water and float towards the horizon.

*Note: A connection is when I connect my spirit with the spirit of the deceased animal.

CATS ARE FUNNY

We love cats whether they are beautiful, gentle, graceful, silky, cuddly, sometimes warlike, sometimes princesses, mischievous, playful, delicate, charming, obstinate, independent, mysterious, or troubling. Sometimes they enjoy a close relationship with their gardians, understanding them subtly like no one else does. Sometimes they are close, sometimes unapproachable, sometimes cute, sometimes strange, odd, incomprehensible. They are our muses, our babies, our lovers, our blue, green or yellow eyed inspiration with their impenetrable eyes.

Cats were worshipped as semi gods in Ancient Egypt and today whether they be wild or domestic pets they share our lives. We are fascinated by them, hypnotized, bewitched, and entranced. We seem defeated, laid bare in the presence of cats. Cats are wonderfully incomprehensible and their stare carries universal enchantment. Their purring vibrates in our hearts to bewitch us and carry us far away into other dimensions.

Here are some unexpected stories of cats…

 

REALLY WEIRD CATS!

One day Eva called me because her cat, a handsome white tomcat, had savagely attacked her husband John. Eva adored Snowflake who even slept in her arms every night. But unfortunately every time her husband John came home, the door barely open, Snowflake flew at him. John’s legs were covered in scratches and he was afraid of Snowflake, even though he tried to hide his fear. Each time John entered a room where Eva was, Snowflake ran towards him hissing to attack him. And on top of it all the cat hid in every corner of the house so that it was impossible to find a safe way around, free of pitfalls. In other words, the husband was trapped in his own house!

Eva was puzzled. Snowflake was so sweet, so gentle and affectionate. How could he react like this? In the beginning the cat had taken no notice of John, was just indifferent to his presence. What had happened? John travelled often, his import-export business forcing him to move from country to country. During these absences everything was all right at home: the cat and his guardian enjoyed a close relationship and Snowflake was master of his territory.

At first glance it would appear that this was the classic story of the cat’s jealousy of the husband; however, during a communication with Snowflake, I discovered something much more interesting. Eva was angry with her husband and even thought of divorce. Also, even if she had not expressed all her anger, she and her husband had discussed the question of divorce. Eve felt neglected, that her husband did not listen to her, was not interested in her feelings and emotions; she even suspected that he might be having a relationship with another woman.

Could Snowflake be expressing the deep, hidden feelings Eva had towards her husband? I let you meditate on that question…

Xavier lives in Barcelona. The fifteen year-old adolescent likes computer games, the computer and his friends. He does not like Romero, the big tomcat of the house. Each time Xavier left his room after hours in front of his computer, Romero would attack him. He lay waiting for him listening for the slightest movement behind the closed door.

It was a serious situation which was why his mother called me for aid. We never really understood the reasons behind Romero’s behavior. There were, of course, Xavier’s hostility, the problem of territory, even the question of hierarchy, the hours spent shut up in the room in front of the computer, the mother’s feelings of resentment for her son whose habits she faulted and the general lack of communication among the members of the family. Could all of this explain Romero’s behavior?

The beauty of cats lies in their wild nature and the fact that one cannot easily interpret their actions. Let us leave them as they are, mysterious and inexplicable. That is what makes them so special and which constitues Poetry for me!
All the same I could not help laughing as I imagined poor Xavier leaving his room with the big cushion in front of him! It took me quite a while to get positive results with Romero and get him to leave Xavier alone. There was still no love lost between them, but at least Romero no longer waited behind Xavier’s door to attack him.

 

A STORY FOR WOMEN ONLY:

Rose is a lovely young doe-eyed girl with long dark hair who is sensitive and artistic. She lives with her black cat Mowgli and she is in love with her boy friend Andy. At night after their lovemaking, at just the time when they are dozing off, Mowgli enters their room silently and jumps on the bed. In fact not ON the bed, but ON poor Andy’s private parts that he bites tenaciously. Andy wakes up screaming, trying to cover up, to push Mowgli aside who continues attacking him! It is as if his private parts were a target to prey on! Andy had never hurt the cat; on the contrary, he likes cats. Now he is really suffering pain.

Mowgli is no longer allowed to enter the bedroom, but sometimes, if the door is ajar, he enters and jumps on Andy’s beautiful, young body, claws outstretched.
Is Mowgli jealous of Andy?
No. The rest of the time Mowgli is affectionate, loves to be caressed and rubs up against Andy’s legs. Andy thought that by showing him affection, on learning to know him better that this would change Mowgli’s nocturnal behavior.
But not at all! At night Mowgli becomes another cat altogether. So the question is, why?

As I communicated I learned of a whole history of rapes and interrupted pregnancies in Rose’s past. In spite of her youth, she has a heavy past. Could this explain her cat’s attacks? It is possible. In any case, there may be a connection here. There is something about Rose which provokes Mowgli’s strange behavior.
Poor Andy!
Will he stay with Rose? Can his love for her overcome the attacks of the black cat?
I leave it up to you to fill in the rest of this story.

What funny cats!

HORSES, COMPETITIONS AND WELL BEING

I have often been called upon to work on the physical problems of horses suffering from colicas or other problems during competitions, and I realized to my great distress that often (not always) the well being of the horse was not really taken into account.
Naturally my help was given along with the care and advice of veterinaries.
All the same, I was expected to cure with these words: “as quickly as possible”, “maybe he’ll be fit for competing tomorrow,” and especially “he has to start training as soon as possible.”

This posed a very difficult ethical question: should I really help if these horses were to be put to work immediately? Usually, I was well aware that a period of convalescence would be necessary. Do I have the right to insist on that? Will they really listen to my advice? Should I help the horse immediately so as to quickly diminish or eliminate his suffering?

When there is a serious problem, everybody panics because the reputation of the horse or the finances involved are so big. Of course, the rider loves his horse and wishes him well, but he is caught between his love for the animal and his work. He is obliged to make decisions that are not always for the well being of the horse. How can I explain to him that it would be better if the horse did not compete that day? That the medical decisions to get him “in shape” could have adverse results later?

I believe that one must consider the hours spent in planes or trucks, jet lag, fatigue, stress or even the anxiety suffered after being separated from the horse’s companions…or even the fact that the horse is anxious because of a companion’s suffering. Often, the horses are too tired, pushed too hard and have to make an enormous effort to meet expectations. They want to make the effort, to please you their rider, but often they just do not have the strength to do so.

Their riders do not always realize that their horse is suffering. For example, they do not necessarily perceive his anxiety or the beginnings of a colic. The level of physical or emotional pain is often discovered too late and only when the horse starts to limp or rolls on the ground in pain. That is why I think it would be wonderful if the riders also learned the language of communication, because it is the only way to really understand from the inside what the horse is feeling; it would also help to develop the riders’ capacity for empathy and perception. I truly believe this capacity is essential for every professional rider.

The time has come to realize that horses are sentient beings, that we have to listen to them, respect them, honor every thing that they give us, learn their language and create a relationship of collaboration with them. That is the reason why I created with Sonia Matt and Valerie Grenon the association Peace For Horse which transmits this education and helps horses in need.

When a horse cries, we do not see his tears. They are hidden inside him.

COMMUNICATION 1

Animal communication stimulates our capacity to perceive the thoughts, emotions and physical sensations of an animal. This capacity is intangible because it depends on our extrasensory senses: those of clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, clear olfactory, and clear knowledge. Animal communication is a different language than the one we usually use for verbal communication. It is our very first language, the one we have before the use of words.

 

Our usual way of communicating is first to perceive, then to decode our perceptions and finally to express them with words. What we perceive in the world around us and what we experience is tangible as this perception is felt through our senses. This is what I call the first language.

 

Animal communication functions on the basis of this first language.

It works thanks to empathy and through telepathy. I believe that it is this first language that allows species to communicate with each other or with members of different species including humans.

 

How can we reconnect with this language that we have lost?

I think that first of all we must be aware of the existence of this first language, to discover it in one’s self, then develop and refine it, polishing it like a diamond that we cut after removing the gangue. Thus, once polished, it can better express those subtle elements that we have perceived.

 

The Rough Diamond

This language is conveyed to us through words, thoughts, images, emotional or physical sensations (the five senses) and the sensation of knowing, truly knowing deep in oneself. We might therefore ask why, when a coyote is about to eat a cat, the predator does not communicate with his prey. The reason is that even if the first language exists, instinct is foremost and one cannot go against it. The coyote needs to eat by instinct and will not communicate with the cat and excuse itself for eating it. It is true that there are some cases when species that are not supposed to cohabit do live together, but that only happens rarely. For example there is the well-known story of a bear, a tiger and a lion that you can see on the web. These animals when rescued very young were placed in a refuge and became inseparable. I have also witnessed the friendship between a lynx and a fox as well as the close ties between a lynx and a doe at my friend Marie Noelle Baroni’s place where she looks after wild animals.

 

When all the beings on Earth and especially we humans will have   evolved to a higher consciousness, there will no longer be a need to eat each other!

 

How can we polish the diamond?

First we have to learn how to concentrate on one particular thought.

I don’t request that we should empty our spirit since we cannot stop the flow of our thoughts. It just does not work! The reason this is impossible is because our thoughts are a continuous flow. The only thing we can do is to become aware of this flow and avoid becoming attached to it; in other words, not to fix on what this uninterrupted flow recounts.

During animal communication the first important moment of awareness is to realize that our thoughts will continue to flow.

The second equally important moment is when we understand that we are not obliged to think of this uninterrupted flow as the truth. The thoughts are there, somewhat like a noisy child that disturbs you, but we are not obliged to believe them or to linger on them.

These two phases are important which is why I call them conscious communication.

I believe that in order to polish the diamond, we must first be aware of how we human beings function: we can lower the sound of our interior conversation, those uninterrupted thoughts which lead us astray and prevent us from concentrating; it is as if we were lost in a thick forest. We must also be conscious of the continuing narration that is always present in our spirit: reliving the daily news, criticizing and judging others, or just describing what we are doing.

We talk to ourselves all day long and we cannot stop this mental activity. For example: “Have I done all my shopping? Have I fed the dog? I must call so and so on the phone. I should have done this, I should have done that…”etc. All this makes for a lot of noise and prevents us from perceiving the elements of animal communication.

Once we become aware of this flow and manage to guide it, our consciousness can then receive the authentic information.

 

Many people who communicate explain that animals communicate mostly with images; however, I believe that animals communicate with all their senses just as we do. All the extra-sensory capacities of the person communicating can be developed. There is no one perception that is better than another; each forms a part of the possible variety of choices. When starting, each person should recognize and develop his or her best tool, and later develop the remaining extra-sensory perceptions.
