I had been sitting this morning on a beach on Cape Cod facing the Atlantic doing my usual morning mediation, when I suddenly felt a strong presence all around me. When I opened my eyes there in front of me, only 10 feet from the shore was a group of seals swimming past.
Now, me being the Animal Communicator I am,
I am NOT about to let an opportunity like THIS slip by without opening up a line of communication!
So I asked them to stay and talk with me. Some stayed, and some went off to look at the curious people floating on the large sticks of colorful wood (we call them surfers!)
The ones that went over to surfers, just had so much fun looking and checking them out. And yes even talking to the surfers. I felt their connection right away and was so happy to see that moment and capture it on my camera. One being looking at another with curiosity yet both respecting the others boundaries and space. This connect between people and animals transcends anything else. Not only do we learn from them, they learn from us as well.
Respecting the fact that all beings have something important to say, that it does not always means more because it is coming from an animal, just as it does not always mean more when it comes from a human the message. What is important is that the message(s) is coming. Simply being aware that information and wonderful things come from many different sources.
So back to my encounter. So as the men on the weird colorful boards were having their connection I had mine….
I asked the seals “Show me how I can be more playful, more lighter about things in my life, show me how I can enjoy my life more.” “You seals seem to live off happiness, joy, and fun and I would like to learn how to be more like that, how do I do that?”
This is what I heard….
“By just letting go, by not being afraid of results of your actions, what others might think or do. It is your life. You live your life the most when you are at your most happiest, at your most freest.”
By having fun with your friends when you are with a group of friends that understand you and love you and you let go in that atmosphere that is a wonderful feeling. Let go of all the things that you think are so important. Let go of all the things that you think make you, you.
“When you truly let go and just BE, you will see how easy it is to connect to the real you, and in finding that real you then you will have joy and see things as we do.”
“Try to be open to new ideas, new experiences, take them in with an open mind and find out what you like and what you want to keep about this new experience, and then let it go and joyfully move on the next new experience or new encounter, why do you stay and keep looking at the new thing?”
“That is not a good idea because after a while the new thing becomes the old thing and the joy and fun is not in it as much anymore the longer you look at any old thing the less exciting and thrilling it becomes.”
“So let it go.”
WE are always curios about the new experience, that is a good way to be…remain open and curious and about all the new experiences, curiosity brings excitement and joy into our lives, don’t be afraid of your curiosity. We stay teachable and open to new knowledge.”
Then the seal asked me…
“When you first saw us and you grabbed your object (my camera) and started to run down the beach at us you did so with curiosity with joy and without thinking about it, did that not feel nice to do that?”
I said, “yes, it really did, but then my head got in the way and I started thinking, maybe I am bothering them I should keep back and not chase them
Seal “yes, we were sorry to see you stop, we were having a good game of “catch me”
Me: “but I did not want you to think I was going after your babies, or disrespecting you”
Seal: “We see you heart.. we know what you are thinking like you know what we are thinking. That is your head talking, what does the heart say?”
Me: “That is was fun to run!”
Seal: “YES! And we loved sharing that experience with you. Don’t’ worry about what others may think we love to have fun we want that for you too! That is why we came to you today, there is a real feeling of wanting to have this joy but keeping it bottled up because you are not so sure what will happen if you let it out of the bottle. We want to let you know that the fun is in NOT know what will happen when you open that bottle, that is the thrill that brings so much meaning to our lives and to yours.”
Then I thanked the seals for talking with me and sharing with me and teaching me and for the new experience that I want not to share with you.
Then they asked ME a question…
“We have always been curious what it is like to have legs and feet?”
So I tried to explain what it we like to do some things like driving and hopping and running. But then I realized it would be easier to open the connection and share the FEELINGS of doing those things. So I did, I shared with them the sensations of dancing and running and jumping and hopping and skipping and swimming with legs and feet. Then they shared with the sensations of swimming at high speeds in the water. My heart started racing and I got the sensation of water rippling around me and just diving and jumping and doing so at such fast speeds it boggled my mind.
They thanked me for sharing my experiences and I thanked them.
Then we parted ways and I felt so blessed to be here in this wonderful place.
