A Street Cat Named Bob

Bob 2Bob
Ok, I never thought I´d write about books on this blog – but hey, you should never think “never”, right!?
And why not, there are so many great books out there, plus I really feel we should be sharing the great things around us instead of just listening to the glooming news on the TV, radio and online.

So, here´s a book for everyone out there – cat lovers, animal lovers in general and anyone who just loves to read a good book.

A Street Cat Named Bob is about, and written by, James Bowen. He lets us into his life on as well as just off the streets. Something most of us would never get to read about, as who would ever have thought about pitching a book about that subject?

James says more than once that Bob saved his life, and when you read the book you realize that it was not only Bob who saved James – it was the other way around as well.

What I love most about this book is the genuine connection between animal and human, pictured in day to day life, in a much harsher day to day life than most of us are used to or could imagine – and you feel the connection, the strengthening of the bond in every word, on every page.

It is just a really, really good read and so, so genuine (yes, I know I have used that word twice now, it really is the word describing this book the strongest way – genuine, genuine, genuine). It teaches us to live with gratitude and the importance of bonding with our teachers the animals, what they can teach us and how they can guide us to change into the best people we can possibly be.

Thank you James, and thank you Bob for letting us into your lives and sharing your wisdom!

Communication with a Sea Slug

Here is another great conversation with the most enlightening messages from Lyn’s contact with the beings in our oceans. Enjoy the playful and pure wisdom of the Sea Slug!

“About an hour ago I was just here looking at some papers and the words Sea Slugcame to mind !
I thought … Okay ….so I got out of my busy mind and got rid of
the thought of what am I going to ask a sea slug and here’s the
conversation ……..;

Sea Slug – I’m in an area you call the Tropic. We clean, we’re like underwater janitors!
We are beautiful!
All have a job to do!
We help to keep balance, this is something we all must do !
Don’t question the reason we are the way we are, as ALL have a way to be !
When you look at another, look for the beauty, send love, for we are
all ONE ! No matter if we live in water, on land, or in the air.
Life is easy, focus your energy on sending love, light and intent for
healing…….JUST BE !

As we clean our element we ask for all to heal Mother Earth.
We can do this !
We can feel the love and healing energy this is being sent. This healing is good, but remember it is for ALL !
Positive is good !
As people send love and light, we also send love and light.

Seek the knowledge that is there ! We all have knowledge, some has
been forgotten, a shift is happening, the knowledge is coming back,
this is a GOOD THING !

A question from Me : I keep hearing two words while talking to
you…….Party and Music, can you tell me about parties and music ?

Sea Slugs answer – Yes Yes I can !
As you see the picture I’m sending of where I live it is beautiful ( I (Lyn) was being shown white sand and beautiful crystal clear blue water )

From Me – yes it is !
I’ve only seen pictures of water that color !

Sea Slug – When you see the movement of water under the surface, you call this currents and tides……we call this party time !
We float, we feel good when the water moves against us as it is like a
massage and sometimes it tickles depending where we are.
The other fun thing about partying is it brings us and others food. We
celebrate at times of water movement, it’s a good thing !

Question from me – so when we see you floating or see you in moving
water, or landing some where, eating etc you’re actually partying ?

Sea Slug answer – Yes ! Life is a celebration !!

From Me – Well I have a totally different idea of currents and tides !
What about music ? I keep hearing the word Music ……

Sea Slug answer – Music is around us all the time ! All of us sing,
the sand, rocks, water ! Often humans listen under water and think
some of us are vocalizing to contact others verbally…. this is sometimes true but it’s our way of music. We talk to each other the way that we are talking now 🙂

From Me – So all in the water can sing ? And the water also ?

Sea Slug answer – Yes music is good, you hear water moving at the surface or below the surface, the waves ….. the sounds when you dive or listen under water ……..this is music for us … we hum and sing, everything and everyone sings to the music. I believe you call this
Natural Noise ! 🙂 LOL It’s our music !!! Music helps with harmony
and feeling good, raising of a higher vibration. Partying lifts you
to a higher vibration ! This is a beautiful world !
Oh you’d like to know about Bubbles ? LOL Bubbles are part of the orchestra and the party .. they are fun, bring smiles, they make you stop for a moment to JUST BE !

From Me – Thank you so much for talking to me tonight and sharing about you and where you live. Thank you for the messages andenlightenment !

Answer from Sea Slug – You’re very welcome ! Remember, JUST BE, WE
ARE ALL ONE ! Send light and love, this is good for healing 🙂

After I had finished my chat with Sea Slug I kept getting the letter
C and I finally clued in ….. he/she wanted me to write C SLUG 🙂 “

What is my souls journey?

whitewolf

In our Writer’s Circle today, Niamh gave us the theme “What is my souls journey”, which we wrote while the shamanic journey drum was playing in the background for 15 minutes.
We were all in awe of what our pens brought out, and if it had not been for the feedback and direct interpretation of my dear writing friends Jo, Kathy and Niamh I would still be a “sitting question mark”.

Drumming heartbeat, taking me away,
Shimmering, vague, strong and eerie at the same time.
Where are we going, where are we going?

To your deep destination, deep within.

White wolves and white wizards.

We are all journeying together.

It is denser, more tangible, yet strangely see through.
Magic.
Lots of outside “noises”; phones going off, dogs fighting cars
– They are here but yet not here.

We are on the other side of the veil.

There we go again…
…travelling on a soft, sheer, white piece of silk.
Journeying further away, but still here.

White wolves and white wizards.

Stars on a bright dark sky.

Time to save the planet, to save the cold.

Snow glimmering in the night,
harsh, frozen crystals like stars on the forest floor.
Feet gliding above the snow.
Stars brighter, sky more velvety black.

The message is breathed out through steamy voices;

go, go, go,
flow, flow, flow,
let flow do, do, do.

Sit in your own stillness, coolness,
like the white wizard.
Roam the snowy fields and the barren lands
like the white wolf.
Move among people
like the blue wizard, the grey wolf.

Observe, communicate, transform.

The veil will get thinner,
white will meet grey.

There is song there,
creation, celebration, mysticism and reality.

Through the cold from the north comes a new birth.
Icy waters from glacial places, cleansing.

Bring out the light, the creativity.
Share it.

White wizard, white wolf are here to not retreat
but to merge.

Icy waters wash in the spring.
Slow spring,
flowers breaking the cracks in the granite wide open.
birthing towards the sun.

Feel the sun warm the grey,
the granite, the city,
the smog, the dirty waters.

Blue wizards bring green.
Green brings clarity, cleanliness,
new.

High waves washing the shores,
washing the mind.
New white Earth springing from the ocean.

Deer roaming wild, poets living their mind,
white flowers, old people, smiling children.
Blue, light blue cities.
Dawning light.

Expectation. No fear,
just curiosity and joy.

What is to come, what is to come….?
