Never trust the picture

Today

OK, this is really bugging me so to the point where I don´t even know how to start writing this blog post. Things keep playing over and over in my mind, which is how it goes when we can´t let go of things us humans ☺…

This morning, late morning that is, I took the husky ladies for a walk on the beach.
Or maybe they took me for a walk ☺ ?
Either way, it was a beautiful, windy morning with storm clouds on the horizon, all shades of blues and greys of the sky meeting the different sand colours of the beach itself.

Quite early in our walk I noticed two horses further up direction north. I could not see any riders on the horses, but after some time I could distinguish people next to the horses.

“How nice”, I thought to myself. “They are out walking the horses on the beach”.

As we got closer I saw a totally different picture.

A beautiful, grey-whitish (“skimmel” you call that colour horse in Swedish) horse with a female rider in a pink vest and glasses doing what first looked like some sort of dressage dance in the sand.
Kind of side ways and backwards.

For a split second it made me think of the dance of the Lipizzaner horses at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna.
For a very split second. Maybe just a 100th of a second…

The it got very clear that this horse was being steered towards the inwards moving tide, with extremely low, pretty soft waves and the horse was shit scared. She did totally not want to get into the water.

A bit further out, at the brim of the ocean, stood a dark brown horse with a girl dressed in dark coloured riding clothes, looking really confident with a camera around her neck.

It was quite obviously a photo shoot session for whatever reason on the beach with horse and rider and the horse did not want to get in to the moving water.

People had stopped to watched. Not many, but a few.
After all it was Thursday morning early October and people have to work 9-5 too right?

Dark Horse Girl got Grey Horse Girl to come up closer – told her something which could not be heard over the wind – and Grey Horse Girl whipped her horse real hard.

OK, I am not a horse person.
I know zilk about horses.
I took 12 riding lessons when I was 11 and was scared most of the time.
The past years I have been on a horse back for about 30 minutes all together, with my sister who is a Natural Horsemanship practitioner and her extremely calm horse.

But I am an Animal Communicator and a Reiki Master. I have spoken to a lot of horses the past 4 years of that career, I have shared Reiki moments with lots of these beautiful beings. And I am an Earthling. Like all species on this planet. Earthlings all experience fear, pain, joy the same way through the nervous system . It is scientifically proven even.
And that was not a slight touch with the whip to steer the horse in the direction you want it to go – it was “smack, smack” and the horse got even more agitated. It moved sideways, tried to move its head.

Grey Horse Girl got her horse closer to Dark Horse Girl.

Dark Horse Girl got her whip out and 5 times whipped Grey Horse on the ass, so loud you could hear it over the wind, leaving marks I could even see from the at least 25 or more meters away where I was standing.

I got shocked.
People left.
The people who stayed obviously approved of this.
Or did they?
I don´t know.
I did not ask them, so how could I know?

I gathered the husky ladies to go up and talk to the two girls on the horses.

Grey Horse Girl was taken off by Grey Horse a bit up the beach. More whipping and Grey Horse turned back.

It seemed Dark Horse Girl was in charge so I got ready to walk up to her and talk to her.

I had this plan of introducing myself and letting her know I am an Animal Communicator, offering to help or explain what was going on from Grey Horse´s perspective.

As I went through this in my head Grey Horse made it clear that she wanted to run back and forth up the stretch of sand where they were taking the pictures, and that she this way would be able to proceed in to the water after a while. In her way.

She showed me an experience where she had been forced in to a river, the currents were really strong and caught some of the horses and they all got swept quite a bit down river before they made it up safe and sound with riders and all on the other side of the river bank.

I was going to go up to Dark Horse Girl and let her know.

She came towards us.
Gave Dark Horse to a lady on the beach.
The lady gave her a look saying “what? Me?” and Dark Horse Girl said “she is really nice”. In German.

The lady proceeded to answer and all of a sudden Dark Horse Girl said in German “I only speak German, no other language and I need to have a smoke”.

Grey Horse Girl was having heavy problems further up the beach with Grey Horse, the whipping getting more intense.

Another split second decision – Grey Horse needed whatever help she could get right now.

I had been thinking of more options – not just talking to Dark Horse Girl , but to call Animal Protection and get them down on the beach , reporting what was obviously animal abuse, calling the police even, filming and sharing on social media… It is amazing how many thoughts and ideas you can force through your mind in a matter of a few minutes.

I walked towards Grey Horse and Grey Horse girl with the husky ladies.

I raised my right hand to draw the Reiki symbols – first for emotional healing and peace, then for physical strength.

I got contact with the horse
.
I told her “You are a beautiful being, you are strong, you can do this, the water has no power over you, the stupid human being on your back has no power over you, she is actually totally unintelligent and dumb (yes, I know this is not the way a yogi should speak, not a constructive way of saying things but I was really upset and angry and cannot pretend that was not the case), you are beautiful, you are strong, you have purpose, I love you.”

I kept saying “you are strong, you are beautiful, you are wise, you are needed, I love you” out loud even for quite some time while asking Reiki energy to be with Grey Horse. Drawing the symbol for healing the soul.

She ran back and forth next to the water, she then went in to the water and continued to run in the sometimes ankle sometimes knee deep sea for her, up and down the same route.
Beautiful!

“You are strong, you are beautiful, I love you, you are better than any human treating you that way, I love you”.

I kept talking to Grey Horse, Akasha and Elsa sat down in the sand watching it all.

People were walking up and down the beach taking photos of the beautiful couple in the sea.
The human and the horse.
Nature.
Little did anyone know what it took to get that scene.

It made me wonder right then and there, and I also wish I could have had a chance to ask that question to Dark Horse Girl and Grey Horse Girl if one – do they hit their children, their friends and parents too to get them to do what they want?
Two – when you publish that picture of you on Facebook or Instagram, galloping through the waves, most likely sharing that it is a moment to remember – is it really? Are you proud of your actions leading up to creating that so called picture perfect moment?
Three – What are you afraid of? Would you like anyone to force you to do what you are afraid of through violence, or would you rather somebody helped you with patience, gentleness and understanding so that you could flourish once you have managed to conquer one of your fears?

I don´t know why things happened the way they did today when it comes to my own reactions and behavior, next time I am calling the police.

For anyone in The Netherlands, that is 114 when it comes to animals whether it is animal police or animal ambulance.

And the picture below is from this morning too.

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!

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!

Bolton´s tips & wisdom

20131012 Bolton

The past weekend I had the funniest, wisest and warmest Labradoodle to communicate with that I have ever had the privilege to connect with.

He was just a bright sparkle all over, and there were quite a lot of things he said which I think we can all benefit and learn from. With the permission of his person, who booked the consult with me – and of course the permission from Bolton himself – I am sharing two of those here.

One of all the questions I always ask the animal (I have about 20 or so questions I ask every animal in the consultations, next to all the questions from the animal´s people) is what he thinks of people/humans in general and how he relates to them. On this Bolton replied something we can all take to heart ;

“ Sometimes I really get a “human allergy”. People just don’t have any awareness at all about their own energy, what energy and signals they are sending out and this leads to a total lack of control of the consequences.”

I asked him to elaborate a bit and he explained to me that we humans need to take the responsibility of all our actions and thoughts as well as the consequences of these. He showed me that quite often we stand around and “chit chat” or do “cold talk” and we let all sorts of things about ourselves, other people, other peoples kids, dogs, cats, birds and horses slip out we don´t realize that every word or thought sent out with a bad intent or a not so friendly comment creates a whirlwind of negativity that comes back to bite us all. Animals, and quite often young children, all feel this straight away and when they cannot walk away from this negative energy it sticks to them. Bolton also showed me that it sticks to all of us, and that we have to stop questioning why “things don´t work out” and look at what energy we are putting out into the world. All the time.

Once we get that we can experiment immediately with putting positive energy out there – comments, hugs, compliments, and see what happens then.

I was also told that when you catch yourself with “one negative” , don´t beat yourself up but go for “two positives”. So when you find yourself thinking, wanting or having said something negative about a situation or somebody just pause and look for two positives in the same situation. “Bolton´s diffuse”.

Bolton also had a tip for all of us dog people for when a situation arises with another dog or more dogs whom you see your own dog reacting fearful too. That is the moment when you as the “leader” has to step in with all your energy and presence. Saying “don´t be afraid” out loud he told us, won´t work at this point. You have to put yourself physically in the way between the other dog/s and yours and show with your energy that you are not letting anyone close to your animal. This is done without words, so it requests your complete presence and awareness of your own intent and energy. Then everyone can feel that there is nothing to be afraid of, there is no trespassing of boundaries here.

His comment to this was also “that is why kids don´t do what you say, instead they do what you do. So, do! And be aware of what you do! And Do when you do!”

Bolton is showing us one situation here, but his comment and solution is something we can take in to all areas of our lives.

Thank you Bolton for talking to us all!

Akasha on Love

Akasha

Since I attended Marta Williams workshops here in The Netherlands for the second time around about a month ago I took her advice to heart to communicate with my own animals daily, and that is when you really start to notice that after some time that they open up and initiate conversations with you too more often.

Yesterday Akasha all of a sudden told me, as I was hanging out with her at her favourite place to sleep for the night at the moment, which is in the hallway snuggled up against the cold tiles of the wall, that ;

“Love is not something you do.
Love is when you hold space together, when you really are in that space together.
When you say “I love you”, you feel love but it is not inside you, it is not something that is yours or that you really feel, it just is.
It is in that space which we are holding together right now. Always. That space is always there. Everything is space, space is everywhere, so love is everywhere. When you notice space, you notice Love.”

And her name is Akasha……

Elsas blog 21/10 2013

Elsa

Hi dear Elsa, what do you want to talk about, blog about, tell people about today?

About flowers, butterflies and “airy-fairy” things like that.

Because they dance, they don´t question, they just grow, they “joy”, they fulfil and dance.

Why is it so hard to get into the heads of you humans that you too are here to grow, to blossom, to fertilize, to flow in what is, to follow nature?

First you are a seed, the seed of pure potential.
And that seed did not come out of nowhere. It can from another flower, another plant.
The pure life force was shared there, from one to the other, from one to the next.

You are cared for.

A seed cannot just sprout from being a seed. You are embedded in nutritious, warm, motherly soil.
You get rained on, the roots start to grow and as your nails, your feet, your roots, your paws, your whatever-you-call-them sinks deeper into Earth – be it stone, sand, mush, soil, gravel, swamp or whatever – you open up more and more.

You poke your head through the surface and “bling” – there´s the sun!
Warming rays, heavy winds, even cold blizzards and hail storms love you, nurture you, shape you.

And what do you humans do then?

A lot of you stop there – stagnate, get stuck in what you call “the scars of the shaping”, waging a war of bitterness on the cold blizzards next to a desperate search for a forever-and-always-only-love-of-the-sun.
= Out of balance!

Open yourselves up, show your petals, receive with gratitude whatever comes in – rain, storm, sun, shower, hail, draught, soft breeze, mist, snow, daybreak or twilight.

You won’t wither and die.
That life force is in the seed even when the flower, the plant shrivels into a dry sheet.
That is the very moment when it releases it’s seeds, when the life force is expanding, is spreading!

May the force be with you!

Elsa

News: Beginnerscourse Animal Communication, in Dutch

Cecilia & Akasha-0184

Beginnerscursus Telepathisch communiceren met Dieren en Natuur

door Gerrie Huijts en Cecilia Götherström
9 en 10 november 2013 in Villa Vijf 33 te Vijfhuizen

Telepathie met dieren is niet het ‘lezen’ van de lichaamstaal van een dier. Het gaat om informatie die je binnenkrijgt via je zintuigen in de vorm van gedachten, beelden, gevoelens of fysieke ervaringen of gewoon door ‘weten’. Telepathie vindt plaats op een meditatief bewustzijnsniveau en is niet gebonden aan tijd, ruimte of afstand.

Als wij communiceren met dieren kunnen zij ons dingen duidelijk maken over zichzelf en hun achtergrond, over hun gezondheid, over wat hun zorgen baart en altijd hebben ze ook boodschappen en adviezen voor ons. Ze kunnen ons een spiegel voorhouden, als onze gids fungeren en ons anders tegen zaken laten aankijken. Er zullen letterlijk en figuurlijk nieuwe werelden voor je open gaan!
De cursus bestaat uit 2 dagen van 10.00 tot 17.00 uur, met veel ruimte voor individuele aandacht. Voorkennis is niet noodzakelijk. Na afloop van de cursus ben je in staat zelfstandig telepathische gesprekken te voeren met dieren en natuur! De kosten zijn

€ 195,00 per persoon voor de hele cursus. Dit is incl. 21% BTW, het cursusmapje en een heerlijke biologische en vegetarische lunch, koffie, thee en lekkers.

Neem foto’s van dieren mee, waar je mee wilt oefenen. Alle soorten dieren zijn mogelijk. Denk ook alvast na wat voor vragen je zou willen stellen. Heb je geen foto’s, dan geeft dat niet, dan doen we het zonder. Er zullen tevens een aantal honden live aanwezig zijn, die heel ervaren zijn in telepathische communicatie. Het is helaas niet mogelijk om eigen dieren mee te nemen naar de cursus.

De workshop wordt gegeven door Gerrie Huijts. Zij heeft sinds jaren een professionele praktijk voor telepathische consulten met dieren en natuur. Ook is zij celzout- en bloesemtherapeut, geeft ze Reconnective Healingen en coacht zij mensen op het gebied van hun persoonlijke en spirituele ontwikkeling. Daarnaast geeft zij regelmatig cursussen, lezingen en begeleidt zij veel oefengroepen op dit gebied door het hele land.

Zij wordt geassisteerd door Cecilia Götherström, die sinds 2011 werkt als dierentolk & Reiki master voor dieren, naast haar Yoga- en voedingspraktijk. Sinds begin 2013 volgt zij ook de “teacher training” bij Gerrie, en geeft workshops communiceren met dieren voor kinderen.
