My first time conducting animal communication and healing with elephants was in Sumatra in 2014. I traveled to the Way Kambas National park with a group of Linking Awareness Adventurers. We worked hands on with a herd of 55 elephants.
It. was. LIFE CHANGING.
The Elephants called me back to them in 2015, but this time it was in South Africa, with much bigger, sacred beings. The African Elephants swarmed us in Kruger park. They’re messages and downloads were heart opening and delightful. This was also the first time that I met a very powerful friend of mine, Kasper the Elephant. We are the same age, and little did I know at the time that I would be back to see him 5 times in the next few years, bringing groups to work with him and his exquisite wisdom. Below is an exercise that he wanted me to relay to you.
A Message and Exercise from Kasper the Elephant:
"Hello beloved one. Thank you for taking the time to connect with me. I have been in this body for 31 years, and with each coming year I bring more presence and energy. During my time here I have been lost, bought, sold, hunted, and rescued. I have watched my friends flourish and I have watched my friends die. I have seen humans with giant hearts, and I have seen humans with small hearts. Such is the gift of "being". So I ask that you embrace this gift of being. I ask that you be the human with the "Giant Heart". I ask that you look at this beautiful planet we share together, and love it for all of its glory, lightness, and darkness.
Now dear one, I ask that you place yourself in the picture above. Stand so that your chest is pressed against my leg. Imagine that your heart and my heart connect.
Hear the low rumbles of my inhales, and the raspy release of my exhales. Feel me expand with each in breath, as you expand with me.
Be with me in this moment. Matching your breath to mine. Be with me in this time of great change and great grace. And don't ever leave... "
A herd of 6 zebra grazed in front of my Rondavel on my first morning in Hoedspruit South Africa in November 2017. As I sat in the open doorway and watched with appreciation, one of the pregnant females approached and “asked” to receive a healing. I began running energy on her and immediately felt the strain and pull on her back muscles, the discomfort in her hips, and that strange feeling of baby shifting within.
Momma told me that she was worried baby would come too early, and she would have a hard time protecting it from the elements.
As I worked, all of nature assisted, the birds started chirping a peaceful song in unison. The insects began their low hums which continued to build until it was so loud, I could barely hear myself thinking. This cresendo built for only a few minutes, but I could feel the power of all of nature flowing through the healing field that Zebra and I now held between us.
Then everything stopped. Silence. Zebra stood with half open eyes, in an almost trance state of reception. I could hear her stomach and intestines giving off large rumbles as I saw baby moving within. There it was.... “the shift”.
"Life is like Underwear, Change is Good"
I know, right? This quote made me laugh and it's resonating hardcore with me right now. Spirit has been downloading me with some big BIG visions. They are all incredible and magical, but guess what?
They all place me WAY OUTSIDE MY COMFORT ZONE.
And when I say "way" outside my comfort zone, I'm talking a bazillion on the scale of 1-10.
I realized that being in this uncomfortable space of expansion and possibilities is the juciest place I could be in this moment. You wanna know why??
Great Things Never Came From Comfort Zones
Big Dreams Require Big Support
You might not know that For many years before I fully stepped onto this path I worked as a technical writer for a Private Investigative firm that specialized in investigating fraudulent Workers Compensation claims. During this time I was a "closet psychic" and neither my bosses nor my co-workers knew that in my off time I was working on missing persons and cold cases with various police departments, doing a weekly radio show conducting psychic readings, studying with Shaman and Indigenous Healers from all over the world, and teaching Psychic Development, Channeling, and Healing.
The P.I. job was stable and well paying, but it by no means fed my soul. Days turned into months, and months turned into years. I kept telling myself I was going to leave, but I was too afraid to take the leap. So I adjusted my schedule to work from home (thinking the office was the culprit), then I went from full-time to part-time (thinking that less work would make me happier), but through all of those changes, I WAS STILL MISERABLE. I cried a lot, I was always frustrated, and I stuffed my emotions with really healthy things like pots of coffee, brownies, and cookies.
Bottom Line: I was not in alignment with my Soul Blueprint and the Universe was going to continue to "turn up the heat" until I surrendered to my path
It was time for me to bust out of that comfort zone and take the leap into the vision I was always shown but I didn't know how to make possible. This vision was me owning my own business, helping people step into their power and heal, and facilitating global retreats. Knowing that great things never came from comfort zones, I held my breath and jumped off that cliff.
And guess what........Everything worked out fine.
It is now my PURPOSE to empower others and help them align deeply with their Highest Soul Blueprint.
