I came across to the comment below on Animal Communicator Forum .
Then I wanted to quote it here and spend half the night pondering about it.
The main question was: What is the best way to handle invading animals and plants from other parts of the world?”
I admit I haven’t pondered about that one very much.
But I noticed the word handle.
Handling stuff is like having control over things.
Control feels nice to humans… We love to control things, thoughts, feelings… or other people, and animals, too.
And humans see problems everywhere – even when there are no problems – that need to be handled… and put to boxes with labels on them.
The more I have heard and read animal wisdom (and wisdom of plants and nature spirits) the more clearer it seems that we humans make a lot of plain wrong presumptions and speculations about the state of nature, animals, plants, air, water, land, the climate changes, and so on.
We really like to know stuff.
And then we actually believe that we know so much about everything and that we are absolutely right and this belief simply gives us the permission & power to control life and the state of other beings on this planet… arrogantly so.
We have done it for a long time, and it shows.
We even study life by killing it and cutting it to pieces!
We could learn everything about life just by listening to it… If we did, we might be surprised. We might understand that All is Well, and exactly as it should be, and it is not our place to interfere in things that are not in our hands in the first place – because they are in the hands of the Highest Good.
There is a spiritual reason – and therefore a spiritual solution – for everything that ever happens. That’s why the Highest Good seems nothing but a mystery to the physical eyes of humans. Things are not always as they seem to be, and we need to have the guts to seek for the truth behind the illusions, by listening with our hearts.
The heart hears so much more.
The heart sees so much more.
It just knows.
Well, nature knows – and it goes with the flow of life, trusting it, without any need to control it.
It’s almost like when we humans “heal” our pains by taking pill after pill after pill.
The pill might take away the pain, but it never takes away the real reason behind the pain.
The pain always comes back and the vicious circle never ends, until we are ready to do some soul searching to find the real reason for our aches. Aches do not come out of nothing. They are signs, the warn us that we are not taking care of ourselves, we are not doing our “inside job”. If we ignore our pains by numbing them they eventually turn into bigger and bigger problems.
Body is screaming for love and healing and peace by sending you pain.
You might even know why the pain is there, but you are in denial…
Listen to your body. It is speaking to you.
Nature is speaking to us as well, and if we opened our hearts to listen to it. Then we might eventually learn why evolution works in so seemingly “mysterious” ways from our point of view; but those ways can be understood only by listening with our hearts, by communicating with animals, plants and the whole nature.
Humans should also evolve (that is our primary mission on Earth) but we are too busy to evolve, because we spend our time on this planet trying to control the life on it so badly… Mother Nature is far more wiser than we are. We should listen and learn from her, not make wrong assumptions about her “motives”.
We call animals with rude names like: killers, hunters, predators, pests, enemies, invaders… when they are just trying to live their lives, kill and eat – and only when they are hungry, not out of greed – and doing the (spiritual) work they came here to do. (All the species carry a certain energy and that energy can be felt and interpreted in the heart – and only there.) (Animal communication is also basically translating different energies into spoken language.) All the animals & plants chose to be here, on this planet, just like we did. They are here to help us… to open our eyes. And their only motive to be here is LOVE.
Animal communicators help a lot, until we all are able to listen with our hearts and we are not afraid of the unknown anymore.
I have to say I have learned from animals more than I ever could have learned from any scientist or priest.
Many animal communicators say the same.
The original question on the forum was:
Being an ecologist, I am regularly confronted by invasive species, as new plant and animal species are regularly introduced into new, foreign environments by human activities, and will cause important damages and kills. So I wonder about how the beings want us to react.
- Is it our responsibility to restore balance by moving or (quite often) kill the invaders?
- Would the animals and plants cope alone with the problem, and let the nature take care of it, knowing that maybe hundreds of individual will die?
I find it very difficult to decide what to do for helping and would like to know what animals and plants are feeling about this.
An animal communicator responds:
” First of all, I wish to express my deep appreciation for the thoughtfulness and profundity of your highly important question. Thank you for the opportunity to reflect on this issue from unconventional vantage points. Perhaps I should apologize in advance for the length of this response, but a more succinct one is not really in keeping with the question.
Before delving into the heart of the matter, I also wish to emphasize that I am not a scientist. I can surmise, in generalities only, the consequences to which you refer. I am the first to acknowledge that I do not know the complexities of the hazards posed by distinct species being introduced into specific non-native locales. Please be assured that the viewpoints shared below, while possibly divergent from some of your own, are offered with complete respect and appreciation for your profession. The animals and plants who have eagerly responded are enthused by your questions and associated yearning for clarity – and they radiate gratitude for your palpably heartfelt desire to do that which is in the best interest of all.
They lovingly invite you to reassess a number of premises:
- Who is to say what (or who) “belongs” in any given place at any given time? They see the generally-accepted human definition of the word “native” as being rather limited by our concepts of time and history. They wish for us to understand that everything came from somewhere else. Movement is natural for all. Exploration is a part of life and diversity is valued.
- How do humans define “damage”? The plants and animals perceive that often by this we mean change. Yet what determines whether change is classified as good or bad? By “good”, do we infer status quo or something controllable as such? If so, they wish for us to entertain the possibility that such an expectation may be contrary to the natural flow of expansion and growth – which is both inherent in and inevitable for life of all forms.
- Are humans intended to be at the helm of responsibility? This is meant neither as provocation for religious debate nor as invitation to surrender accountability for our own actions. By all means, interspecies respect is beyond appropriate. But could it be that, at times, even well-meaning humans extend a disservice to other species by assuming an elevated role of leadership? To be in such a position, might one not need a broader perspective than humanity has available? Do we genuinely have the knowingness to comprehend the intricacies of Nature’s balance? Could Mother Nature, the Earth itself, and a great many of the individual inhabitants have greater intelligence than we tend to credit them with? (Your very questioning of the animals and plants confirms recognition of their astuteness, of course.) Those representatives who contributed to this discussion invite us to broaden our perspectives. They wish to assure us that Nature always balances herself, yet is seldom as unbalanced as we may believe. They see humans as commonly having a false belief in their need to control – which, in truth, is based in fear. They invite us to ponder the benefits of trusting in the all-pervasive goodness and wisdom of the Universe. Words are inadequate to convey the richness and fullness of their message. If language were able to do it justice, there would be no hint or question of Pollyanna naiveté.
- By the same token, what constitutes a “problem”? In this case, ultimately, the potential for innumerable deaths. Do humans and other species view death comparably? As a generality, no. Again, they invite us to reflect on our related beliefs and fears. Their tendency is to relax in a much stronger awareness that their essence continues a delightfully lavish and varied existence on the other side of the “veil.” Not to diminish the intention of relishing the physical experience to the fullest, the prospect of transitioning to a different realm is not accompanied by a sense of dread, or even termination, that many of us have.
Profound questions have a way of generating even more of the same. But the plants and animals do not wish to amplify our confusion. They would like for us to be able to see the magnificent dance that is taking place. It is an intensely dynamic, multi-layered, and kaleidoscopic ballet that they describe. Despite outward appearances, they claim that participant members have consented to the new interrelationships and shared environments. Does this imply that we can expect only that which we deem as harmony amongst them? No. But as they welcome new adventures and interactions – with whatever the results may be – could we open ourselves further still in curious and loving observation? Might our interspecies “brothers” and “sisters” simultaneously be gifting us with opportunities to glean additional understanding of, and insights into, the nature of life?
And is there some form of help that we could offer in reverence? They say they do not desire help in the way that we tend to think of it. However, they reiterate their encouragement for us to make peace with change. They look forward to the time when humans foster the acceptance that nothing stays the same – and is not meant to. This is what they would consider to be of immense help. Its impact would be energetic, which we habitually undervalue. But in like fashion, when our focus is upon fear or belief in wrongness, the aberrant energies disseminate outwardly. Our thoughts do not remain contained within us. Our influence can be surprisingly far-reaching. So, the shared benefits of championing the integrity and oneness of the Universe are immeasurable. We are tremendously empowered in ways we have yet to realize or bring to conscious fruition.
As with all individuals of all species, branches of science are constantly evolving. Ecology, not to detract from its very valid academic and scientific core, is also rooted in a keen caring about life forms. Leading-edge questions, such as yours, will likely provide the impetus for further advancement of the field. What could be more exciting than resonance and alignment in co-creation?! ”
