Fr*ee Teleseminar: Animals as Oracles – Personal Transformation and Healing with Animal Wisdom

I’m honored and excited to share with you that Dr. Cara Gubbins of Animal Wisdom Circle will be interviewing me  about animals as oracles and how animals often serve as self-reflections to what we need to learn, how they assist us in our personal growth, and how their wisdom can help us to transform and live a more meaningful life.

There will be time for Q & A and I’ll also be giving listeners a chance to win 1 of 3 personal 30-minute oracle readings I’ll be giving away.

Come join us! Register here today to receive link and call in information. We are looking so forward to connecting with you on Thursday.

If you aren’t able to attend live, no worries, as we will send out a replay. But of course, we’d love to have you on the call with us as it will make it that much more fun and magical!

Hope to “see” you on the call and feel free to share this with friends you think may enjoy, too!

Much love and gratitude,

Barbara

Trapped Inside My Writing Cottage

Trapped Inside My Writing Cottage

This is new.

This darling little fellow.

Who just recently started to sit upon the birch tree branch I have outside my half-moon window of my writing cottage.

He caught my eye as I was doing my yoga practice this morning.

Sitting there so content and might I add, so dang cute!

And he sat, and sat and sat.

So unusual for a hummingbird to sit so long.

It had me reflecting on how Hummingbird has shown up quite often lately in my animal wisdom oracle card readings.

And just two days ago listening live on Facebook as life coach, Cheryl Richardson shared the news of Louise Hay, founder of Hay House Publishing, who passed away at the age of 90 on the very same day that Dr. Wayne Dyer passed away two years ago. As Cheryl talked about Louise and her dedication to helping people heal, a hummingbird landed right outside her window…

and it just sat, and sat, and sat as Cheryl talked so lovingly about Louise.

And this is the thing…life is truly magical. Hummingbird showing up just then as Cheryl talked about Louise reminding us that joy is our birthright…

in life… and in transition.

And while the title of this post is ‘trapped inside my writing cottage’ because when I wanted to walk back in the house after my yoga practice, this little fellow had returned again to sit upon the birch branch.

And he sat, and sat and sat.

His message to me that life is to be savored and enjoyed. That there is no need to rush, but to take in all the joy that abounds.

And so I waited, and waited and waited until he decided it was ready to move on with the day. And then I too opened the door and made my way into the house.

And taking with me the lesson that I am only trapped when I make that choice. But when we make the choice to pause and capture what is right in front of us that the real magic happens and with it comes so much joy.

So much joy.

Healing Wisdom from an Ancient Animal

Healing Wisdom from an Ancient Animal

Yesterday afternoon I went for an impromptu ride. Well perhaps it wasn’t really an impromptu ride but I knew I couldn’t stay in my writing cottage as something was bothering me. I needed to shake it off.

I hesitated if the drive would even work to help release a negative energy I encountered which was feeling quite toxic. But I pushed past my second guessing and made it out to my car with camera in hand to take some pictures along the way to help distract me from all the thoughts racing through my mind.

As I began to drive I recalled a week or so earlier going down a country road I don’t think I’ve ever traveled before. I came across what I labeled as ” cow creatures”  because I wasn’t quite sure of their correct name. But when I came across them they seemed so ancient and made me feel peaceful.

So I headed down that same road again to find them. Sitting on the side of the road and observing them I began to feel myself move out of my head and back into my body again.

Those primal looking cow creatures did it again – helping me to feel grounded and more at peace.  When I got home I Googled a description of them to find out they are Highland Cattle. They come from the Scottish breed and are one of the oldest breeds of cattle in the world.

No wonder I felt such a deep healing from just being in their presence. I was able to remind myself that the toxic feelings flooding me were only temporary. And that I had a choice to let go. The Highland Cattle also helped to remind me that I am strong and wise.
