love of animals

If you know me a little already, you'll know I am the very proud mummy of two adorable adopted bunnies (hence the photo above... I couldn't help myself!). Whilst I'm devoted to my furbabies and bunnies, in general, my love extends to all animals from the dog in your home or tortoise in your garden, to the goats in the field, and the orangutans in the wild.

Animals have so much wisdom to share with us whether it's about how best to live our life or how to help heal the planet. Animals have more insights, wisdom and knowledge than many humans give them credit for.

I wish to be a voice for these highly intelligent, in-tune-with-nature, sentient non-human animals.

And so I am using this page to share my thoughts and experiences with animals, as an animal communicator (in the making) and as someone who honours and respects all the wondrous species on this planet, not just humans.

I hope you enjoy my musings and everything I share.

mother's day

Today is Mother's Day in the UK when we celebrate the amazing mothers and grandmothers who have helped us and supported us as we grew into the amazing people we are today.

We celebrate all mothers, both young and aged, both new and practised, around the world, for the love they give their children.

And today I invite you to also celebrate and show gratitude to Mother Earth herself.

when mother takes control

As a child, when you pushed and pushed and pushed, eventually your mother would lose her patience and have to take measures in order to retain order and respect, right?

Why do we humans think Mother Nature would be so different?

If your children are running wild, if they're destroying everything that you have so generously provided for them, if they're abusing you, hurting you and disrespecting you, would you stand back and let them continue down that path of destruction? Of course you wouldn't.

message from archangel ariel

On the first occasion I met Archangel Ariel, she brought with her two spirit animal guides for me; animals that were mighty and majestic. On this later occasion, when she wished me to pass on her message which I am now sharing with you, I was shocked by the animal that joined her.

Standing by her feet was a tiny, humble mouse.

Going from the presence of this strong and beautiful peaceful Tribal Queen with her lioness and my two majestic spirit animals to a strong and beautiful Tribal Queen with her lioness and a tiny little mouse, was somewhat of a shock.

message from archangel raphael

Recently during a meditation and attunement I received an unexpected and hard-hitting message, delivered by Archangel Raphael in his gentle manner. At first I was a little confused by the message as it didn't seem to be the type of message that would be attributed to Archangel Raphael as, on the surface, it didn't seem to relate to healing.

However, after some contemplation, I realised that it was about healing; it was about the healing of the human spirit and respect for the sentient beings we share this planet with.

where's all the snow gone?

We're closing in on the final days of January and here, in the Swiss valleys, there's still no snow.

That's unheard of.

The bunnies and I moved to Switzerland to join my husband in early November 2015. And every January since, if not earlier, we've had snow fall on the valley.

But this year, not yet.

a basic need

As humans, one of our most basic needs, most basic desires is to receive and experience love. And it's absolutely no different in the animal kingdom.

Animals give out unconditional love all the time.

Just think of a dog that's been abused, is rescued and given a new forever home. Do you think that dog holds a grudge against his previous human guardian and is, therefore, unable is love someone new who will return love to him/her?

my christmas dinner

A number of years ago, a few weeks before Christmas, my Mum phoned me with some shocking news: "Viv" she said, "this year for Christmas dinner we decided we'd just cook chicken instead of turkey."

There was a deafening silence on my side of the phone as I tried to take in what my Mum had said. No turkey at Christmas? NO!!! That could never be!

old dog disease

Some time ago I joined a weekend course which taught the basics of animal communication. Following the course I set up a private facebook page for anyone who had attended the course and wanted to keep practising so they could strengthen their new-found animal communication muscle.

Every now and then someone in the group posts a photo of a pet, it could be their own of that of a friend, and anyone who wants will tune into the animal and communicate with him/her, should he/she wish to communicate.

painful heart

While on an animal communication course, I was communicating with a beautiful and highly sensitive dog.

Although new to animal communication, I felt our conversation was going quite well.

But then, suddenly, things seemed to change.

bobo's crystal

As you most likely already know, we have two bunnies, Forrest and Bobo, whom we adore with all our hearts.

And as you would expect, they are very different bunnies with very different characteristics. Where Forrest loves to kiss and lick us, and loves us petting and making a fuss over her, Bobo is very hands-off...

trusting fully, letting go

Recently, Forrest went in GI Stasis again. Although Archangel Raphael steps in each and every time I ask for his help and heals Forrest, it doesn't mean that she has since stopped going into GI Stasis. It does, however, mean that I can turn to Archangel Raphael for help and trust that he will step in for the highest good of Forrest.

Our most recent experience, that I am talking about here in this blogpost, taught me such an important lesson. A lesson in trusting fully and letting go.

our burning planet

I feel I would be remiss as someone who promotes the 3 loves: love of self, love of angels, and love of animals, if I didn't write down my feelings about the forest fires that have been consuming vast areas of our planet in recent weeks.

As I write this we are facing the most destructive forest fires ever as they consume vast areas in 4 corners of our planet: California, Alaska, Canary Islands and, most notably, the Amazon where the smoke has traveled 1500miles to Sao Paulo, smoke that is covering a landmass so huge it can be seen from space.

bobo's orb

I often see orbs when I'm video-chatting with someone. 

What orbs are, are little balls of light that 'fly' across the screen. They aren't dissimilar to specks of dust but what differentiates an orb from a speck of dust is that the orb tends to move in an unusual direction (maybe zig-zagging) or at a faster speed than a speck of dust.

I started seeing orbs when I began working with the angels.

norway, palm oil & orangutans

Norway is phasing out the use of palm oil by announcing a nationwide palm oil biofuel ban.

This is brilliant news and I hope many countries follow their example.

Palm oil is in so many products from cosmetics to our food and it's causing so much damage to rainforests, orangutan habitation and contributes to greenhouse gases.

creating snowflakes of love

We have two beautiful bunnies in our home; they're very much the centre of our little family and centre of my world.

So when they are ill or not feeling the best, the bottom tends to fall our of my world. I would and do do anything and everything I can to help them feel better.

And so was the situation with our princess, Forrest.

trust

One of our bunnies, our little princess, Forrest, has a delicate and sensitive digestive system (a bit like me... I actually think she mirrors my health). It means she often (at least in the past) gets a dirty bum and she often goes into Gastrointestinal (GI) Stasis.

GI Stasis is a dangerous condition in bunnies and is the number one cause of premature death in healthy bunnies.
