We were just getting ready to head outside for a short walk as Akasha and Elsa had just joined me training Krav Maga in the morning and already had quite some action. As I was getting myself and the girls ready for the walk Elsa connected in and she told me:

“Treasure every day girl, treasure every day.”

At the moment she told me this I had just found myself with my thoughts in the future, in the summer, our beautiful Yoga & Hiking trip in Swedish Lapland during the full midnight sun season, my dear friend Stephi coming for a visit in two weeks. All surely to be treasured moments.

And Elsa snapped me right out of it, in to the treausreness of the present moment.

Thank you girl!

Love you. Treasure you.

Clear Communication

IMG_1684

This morning we were going to look at a house.

As we parked the car in front of the house in question, just at the same time the real estate guy was at the door unlocking it, I said to Akasha & Elsa – the two beautiful gifts of dogs in our lives seated in the back of the van – ;
“OK, you ladies are with me now as eyes and ears and let me know what you think, whether this is the house or not for us ”.

I was very conscious of what I was doing as I was saying this, my intent was clear, communication was clear. I was also very clear in my mind about why I wanted to involve the husky ladies straight away in this.

Minutes later I must admit I had totally forgotten about what I consciously had communicated to and asked Akasha & Elsa to do just before.
Hubby and I entered the house, nice hallway with stained class windows, beautiful kitchen with wooden floor, lots of natural light. We were taking the house in, plus and minuses being scanned and the mind ticking away with observing and thinking – putting all information in to different boxes of “good”, “bad”, “needs to be fixed”, “great”, “hmmm” and more.

As I turned and walked towards the large French doors facing the garden it was as if I was literally hit by somebody pushing me back. Somebody was communicating “no way!”. Followed by “waaaaaay too small and waaaaaay too cold”.

I tried picturing the garden with more green, with maybe even grass but the picutres were blocked every time I tried.

So we went back indoors. Time to check the upstairs.

Beautiful old fashioned wooden stairs leading to the upper floors.

The second I looked up the stairs and put my foot on the first step there it was a again – a very clear, sudden and almost pushy “Forget it! Stairs are way too steep for both of us!”

As I walked through the rest of the house with my husband, adding to the plus and minus list, listening to real estate guy, checking stuff no more information came in as clear as that but I knew already that this would not be the house – and that “just” because of the garden and the stairs.

It was not until we were outside again, sitting in the car that I realized that of course that information came directly from Akasha & Elsa.
As always in Animal Communication, information came in clear and smack on – like a flash of lightning from a blue sky. It had a totally different quality that my own noticing and making list while sorting out the information as we were going through the house.
The information from the husky ladies was like “no doubt”, totally lucid and soooooo obvious.

The information put together by my thinking mind was totally a sum of analyzing, of processing.

So again, whenever you communicate with animals and nature – whether animals living with you, the nature right on your doorstep or animals and nature further away – you know that it comes from them when you realize the quality of how the information comes in. Clear, lucid, no doubt in the way it is communicated.

Thank you Akasha & Elsa for today!

Elsa, what needs to be made known?

Where should I start?
You all – people – make things so complicated. All that needs to be made known you already know in your hearts.

That you don´t play enough.
That you don´t love enough.
That you don´t share enough.
That you don´t laugh enough.
That you don´t walk enough.

Like , what if you took a walk outside your door?
I mean, really took a walk.
Noticing that you step outside, noticing life around you, your neighbours – whatever breed they are – , your part of town or the country side , how when you step outside your door you are part of everything. And if you do not participate you are still participating.
Every time you choose to not play, to not love, to not share, to not laugh, to not walk you are choosing to be part of destroying not just the earth but your own will to live, will to be.

What needs to be made known?

My God, what kind of question is that?
You all think you know so much, read this, take that course, do this, do that – but it is all useless. Completely, utterly useless as you do not put it to use for the benefit of others. You just stack it up and lock every door in or out.
Why do you do that? Why are you like that? Ask yourselves those questions and know that you can solve whatever issue you have by “just” playing, loving, sharing, laughing and walking more!

Pardon the tone but this really pisses me off.

Grrrrrrrr……

So, Elsa, it has been quite some time since we did this blog together last time. What would you like to share with the world right now?

That all is important.

That you cannot just keep making lists and prioritizing.
Just like washing the rice. When you wash/clean the rice you clean the rice. You know what I mean 😉 !

Wholeness is important. A wholeness in what you do and what you are. So many of you feel broken, incomplete, are looking for the missing piece. You are the missing piece! In it’s whole complete “you-are-ness”. And yet you are not a piece. You are peace . ☺ .
That was a good one, eh ☺!

What you are searching for is already here. Your very own pot of gold or whatever you like to call it.

And now I want to talk about mice.
I am a husky. We hunt mice. Full stop.

I am wise, I am a primordial being but you can´t stop me from being a dog. Also.

Whole. Complete. Take it in. All that I am. All that you are.

Kisses!

Elsa

Glädje på fyra ben,
varje dag, varje ögonblick, nytt

Ljusgula ögon tittar ända in i själen,
”ser du mig?”
” jag ser dig!”

När solen går upp är du redan där,
skuttandes på sängen,
din blöta, kalla nos mot min kind

min pepparkaka,
min stjärna,
min Elsa

Tacksamhet på fyra ben

The whole world is mine

ferry

A few days ago I was walking the usual weekly “veggie-round” with the two dear husky ladies I have in my life, Akasha and Elsa. The “veggie – round” is a walk along the river Spaarne here in Haarlem, all the way to Heemstede and then we cross the bridge to the other side where we pick up our weekly veggie package at the eco market, working our way back home via the cute little ferry where the ladies always get dog cookies from the captain.

Strolling along – or to be honest I should say “me being tugged along” – the water, lined with high reed moving in the wind, I, for what felt like the thousandth time that morning, asked Elsa who was doing her usual over-enthusiastic pulling on the leash “why are you in such a hurry? Where are you going?”

“I am just happy”, she told me back. “The whole world is mine”.

“The whole world is mine?” I thought to myself, questioning. My first reaction was “that´s arrogant” and before I could finish that piece of judgement or even stop it from materializing into an actual thought Elsa told me;

“No, it is not like that! It has nothing to do with ownership. It is just the opposite! The whole world is mine, just as it is yours, and everyone´s. I don´t own it, you don´t own it, no one owns it – it just is mine yours, everyone´s – ain´t that great, ain´t that awesome? Just feel what it does to you when you realize that!”….

You

Elsa

Joy on four legs,
every day, every single moment, new

Light yellow eyes gazing into my soul,
“do you see me?”
“ I see you!”

When the sun rises you are already there,
jumping on the bed,
your wet, cold nose touching my cheek

my ginger biscuit,
my star,
my Elsa

Gratitude on four legs
