“If you talk to animals, they will talk with you and you will know each other. If you do not talk to them, you will not know them, and what you do not know you will fear. What one fears, one destroys. ~ Chief Dan George
The Blessings of Power Animals
One day before New Years Eve, I had a visitor, a new animal friend that I call my Raven-Crow. Twelve years prior, I had a very potent dream about a Raven. It was brought to me and I looked through its eyes and traveled into the unknown—a dark but mystical place that lead me to have clearer vision. Well this precious bird actually did visit me in the physical world and ended up in my Garage. I was so moved that it had chosen me to honour its spirit and assist it to the afterlife, that I started to cry. I took my drum out, burned some sage and started to sing to it. It may sound crazy, but I felt my heart Chakra expanding as tears welled up in my eyes and this beautiful bird filled my essence with so much love…all these years later, my dream had become a reality. Did this beautiful soul and I make a soul contract together; was this pre-arranged twelve years ago? I am still deeply moved by this and even more humble and honoured to be working with the Spirit of the Raven-Crow as it has now presented itself as my new Power Animal and shows up in my journeys and meditations. We all are so very blessed by the animal kingdom. I know that we all have animals working with us and for those of you that have read my book 'Awakening The Divine Soul-Finding Your Life Purpose, you will know how many times I have been guided. From a Wolf warning me of a potentially dangerous situation, the Snowy Owl that comforted me in a dream just before I went into surgery and had my lymph node removed and tested for Cancer. She told me that all would be clear and also showed me that I would be moving to the West Coast of Canada, and four years later, I did, and of course the Cougar helping me to get to the top of the mountain. You see, if you open your heart and believe in the unseen world, the guides that are assisting you on your path, you will see things manifest in the physical world.
