Talks With

Cecil The Lion

08-01-15

A client of mine asked me to speak with Cecil the Lion. I didn’t post it right away because it is a little sad.  Feelings can change very quickly in Heaven (or the other side) so it does not mean that Cecil continues to feel this way. It is just that at the moment that I contacted him this is where he was.  Also I must clarify that Cecil did cross over. He is not trapped in the in-between worlds anywhere.  This is just his path.

I would post a picture of him but I do not have any legal rights to any photo.  If any one would like share a photo with me for this post I would be so grateful.

Thank you for caring.

This is what Cecil said on 08-01-2015,

“For many hours my soul was exhausted and I tried to make sense of suffering, pain, the fight to live and how to defend my pride. I had thoughts that I did not know that I had inside of me. I had thoughts of being weak, being scared and fearful and being with out my life. I realized that death was coming and I felt strangely depressed. I didn’t know I was able to have emotions like that. I wonder if this is how my prey has felt. Being hunted by humans seemed so strange and out of nature. It felt like my environment and my home had been raided by foreign beings that did not belong in our lands.

When I had the tracking collar put on me I realized that man was not innocent. They did strange things that my mind could not comprehend. But I did not feel fear. I have seen people in awe of me and I never felt fear but when the people lured me with the dead carcass I thought they were helping me. I thought they realized that I had a weak female in my pride and they where helping me feed her. I did not need their help and that is where I went wrong. That is where my instincts as a lion crossed over from being natural. Normally I would not think about accepting food from humans.

When they put the light on me and shot me and I felt the pain.  The pain came more and more slowly. It was like it has a poison that ran all through my body and started to paralyze me. I tried to fight it off. When they sent me to heaven finally time I saw them for who they are and I crossed a river of great darkness. I crossed a river of great sickness and I realize that these men are sick men. If they were born in my pride I would have killed them long ago, but humans do not kill. They do not kill their mentally sick and they are allowed to keep breeding and it taints the gene pool. This does not happen in the wild.

I see that these men think that they are strong. They think that they have control of us but they don’t. they think that if they kill us that they control the nature and the energy that run through us but they do not understand our ways. They do not realize that what they do cuts away at their souls and the more they do it the darker their soul gets.

They do not realize that we are the purity that this earth has left. We are the planet. When they kill us they are poisoning the field of energy that runs through all things. I have seen your cities and have seen inside your homes and I fear for you and I fear now for my lands because the earth is so ill and there are so little people who are fighting for it to continuing breathing.

I see that so many people want to talk about how what happened to me is so unjust but this is a common practice and I am just one of hundreds. People want to rant and rave but they do nothing to actually create change. If there was something wrong in the environment in my pride we would move away or we would pray to the energy of life to bring back the health of the lands. All animals do this. We are one with our lands. But I watch people and they scream and rant and rave but nothing gets done and it is left up to a small percentage of people who have very little money and resources to keep fighting.

I am glad that people look at me and feel something but it will only bring me hope if people change their lives. Your world is very sick.”

I asked him, “What is your Heaven like?”

He responded,

“I have not fully rested for the shock of inhumanity of my death has pulled me to keep watching. The death continues and the dark energy around these being swarms my lands. All animals are in fear and I feel like it is up to me to watch over my land and to make sure that the animals feel safe.

I still feel the pain where the dark went through me and released its poison. I still feel the confusion of the intense pain.

An animal like me never leaves its pride. When a lion like me gets old and is taken down by a younger lion it is what is best for the pride. This is not best. The younger lion was not ready. He did not learn enough about himself or the pride to make such decisions.

If there is a heaven for me then I know that it is a place with out humans. Humans have moved so far away from their instincts and their true nature.

I am not going to tell you that I feel at peace. I will not feel peace until this is resolved. I understand that I am dead. I understand that I am not in body but my consciousness is very much still in my land and this is where I need to be. If I needed to be somewhere else. I would be somewhere else.

I want to tell people that in order for you to get the feeling of satisfaction in your life’s you have to stop being so selfish and start helping others. You need to look inside your own communities and make it a safer place. Once you can do that then you can branch out to the animals of the world. I know that there are people that fight to save the animals and make sure they do not suffer in the hands of others. For those people I am very thankful but there needs to be more of you. This needs to be a priority. People know longer know how to focus on tasks that heal that planet. They pursue more selfish goals. This is not about money. This is about keeping the energy of our ecosystem alive and healthy. Help others. Help the animals. Stay on task.”

UPDATE 9/11/15

Cecil says,

I am at the kingdom of the divine gate of love. I am at the center of the circle of love. I have arrows around and the ancient wisdom seekers and the beings of shamanic paths are guarding my temple of love. There is no fear where I am now. there is no judgement and no fighting with my inner sanctions. I am not afraid of my future of my pride or the future of the land where I was killed. I am big and bold and powerful and I am the protector of all. I watch over the people who fight for me. I watch over the organizations that write and protect me. I am there hero and their noble light source. I am the embodiment of wrong authority being persecuted and taking responsibility for their actions. I am energized by the human race who are touched my our plight. I am love. I give love and I receive love and I want all to know that there is no more pain in my soul. I am honored to be the symbol of the great destruction of the wild. I am honored to be the symbol of the fight and the empathy and the compassion that is growing with in people. I am honor. Thank you all for caring so deeply about me and others like me. I will forever watch over each individual and the organizations that fight for the wilds honor. I am a peace and no more tears need to be shade. Put your swords in your pocket and arm yourself with words and action to make changes. Hear me roar when you are close to change. For I am sure to be there walking beside you. I am your companion and your friend. I am free. Love is only within me now. The future will be kind. The future will be back to nature.”

Foreword by Laura Stinchfield:

In this book, Louise takes us on a spiritual journey of discovering the inner depths of our relationships with animals.  We follow her and her animals through illness, death, dying, surviving chaos, and the magical joy of experiencing living with our compassionate animals.  Many of us have regrets for the way we dealt with certain situations involving animals in our past. Louise is brutally honest with her readers about her shortcomings.  Through this extraordinary account, we learn that we can make amends with our animals. This is not only healing for our pets but also for us.

Following this family, we learn to grow, flourish, trust, and be strong while making decisions that anyone would dread.  We witness that our animals not only are understanding of our difficult decisions, but also are often an integral part of making these decisions.  Our animals are communicating with us all the time.  Sometimes we consciously know what they are saying and other times it is unconscious yet still happening.

I am a professional animal communicator / pet psychic.  This means I can telepathically talk to animals.  I can ask or tell them anything.  There is no limit to the consciousness of animals.  We see through my communications with Louise’s pets that animals can take on many voices.  One moment they can sound innocent like a child and then later offer advice like a wise sage.  We see them scared of illness and death but once they understand the process they open their hearts and trust.  They ground us in the present by asking for certain foods, to be read to and for walks in nature. They tell Louise to stretch and drink tea in order to be more centered and calm.  They open our eyes to different realms by talking about visits from spiritual beings, deceased loved ones on the other side, and by telling us what happens to them after death.  We learn that a golden thread always connects us and even death does not break the extraordinary bond we have with our animals.

This is a powerful story of elevating consciousness. While reading this wonderful book you will cry, laugh, be in wonder, forgive yourself and grow with Louise and her animal family. Once finished your heart will be open.  Undoubtedly your life and relationships with all animals will change in remarkable ways.  Enjoy.

Appearance On KTLA 5 Morning News

Luca and I on KTLA 5 Morning News

It was great to be at KTLA 5.  Such nice people!

Luca (my poodle) was scared of the swivel chair.  He has never sat on one before.  I prepped him before the segment that if he gets nervous to talk to Stormy my 13 year old Aussie dog.  He was really nervous.  My friends Ai and Kendra where off to the side with Stormy. So he kept looking to Stormy for his wise advice.  Stormy could not be on the segment because he is too big to sit on the chair.

Some of you may have remember that recently Luca has discovered himself in the mirror.  Click Here To See That Post. In front of the news desk there were three monitors that showed the broadcast.  Luca saw himself himself in them and got confused.  All and all I was very proud of him his first time on TV 🙂

Thank you KTLA 5 for having us on the Morning News and for being so wonderful during our time at your studio!

Thank you Ai and Kendra for coming to support me and for taking care of the Stormy and Luca when I was busy.  You are the best!

 

Storm, Luca and I outside the KTLA 5 Studio and by their tower.

Stop Elephant Rides At The Orange County Fair

Fair Meeting  March 22nd 

Orange County Fair Board voted 6 to 1 to ban elephant rides at the fair – effective immediately!

Thank you Alison Stanley & all that spoke!

 

Fair and Tender Elephants

by Laura Stinchfield

Animal Trainer and Pet Psychic at thepetpsychic.com

On Thursday, March 22, there will be a meeting of the Orange County Fair board, which will talk about discontinuing the elephant rides provided by the company Have Trunk will Travel.

Have Trunk Will Travel owns the elephant that was in the movie Water for Elephants.  This company has been in the news due to shocking video footage that appears to show gross, inhumane training methods.  These methods include beating elephants with bullhooks and electrically shocking them to get them to obey commands.

I imagine that the argument for offering elephant rides at a county fair is because we humans enjoy this activity – we as individuals are in awe and in gratitude that such beautiful massive creatures allow us on their backs.  As a child, I rode several elephants.  I have felt their steady sway beneath my body, stroked my fingers over their sensitive toes, and entwined my arms with their hairy expressive trunks.  I remember grasping onto my mother’s soft hands as we walked away and telling her, “The elephants are so sad. Did you see their eyes?”  When I close my eyes today I can still see them – wrinkled and dull-looking, a bit like my old babysitter’s eyes after she had a heart attack and told us she couldn’t babysit us any longer.

Today we might argue that we allow this cruel pastime for the pleasure of the children.  But if we ask children today to look into the eyes of these elephants and to tell us how they feel, the children will almost always respond with phrases like,  “The elephant is sad,” “Is the elephant mad?” or “I am scared.”It does not matter to me how the company Have Trunks Will Travel responded to the allegations that they abuse their animals with harsh training methods.   The fact is that the humane training of exotic animals is a very new field; shocking elephants in their genitals and beating them with bull hooks are the methods most experienced animal handlers are accustomed to using.

Almost all of Have Trunks Will Travel’s elephants are over 30 years old.  That means that there is a high probability that these animals were trained inhumanely.  When you train an animal with abuse, the animal does not have time to process new information; this leads to confusion in taking on new stimulation in the present and in the future.  These animals can have post-traumatic stress syndrome.

The elephants’ greatest sense is their sense of smell. Imagine the stress of trying to decipher all the smells at a county fair.  Perfumes, unnatural foods, the rides, gas and oil …  Can we guarantee that a smell, sight, or sound at a county fair will not bring back an old memory that will elicit an elephant to react into fight or flight mode?  Indeed, all you have to do is Google elephant attacks and you will see numerous elephants exploding at zoos, circuses, and fairs.

What if, after 30 years, one of the Have Trunks Will Travel elephants just can’t take it anymore?  What if an elephant just snaps, and takes off with someone on his or her back? No company can guarantee the safety of onlookers.

Elephants are the largest land mammals on earth. They are designed to live their lives in the wildlands of Asia and Africa.  Can we really convince ourselves that animals created to roam great distances rooting the earth and eating the bark off of trees – either as loners (the males) or involved in close and complex social interactions (the females) – enjoy carrying complete strangers around a crowded smelly fair?

Our common sense will tell us they do not. But most adults must have become so busy in their lives that they have lost their empathetic eye for sadness and anger in others. Or perhaps these same adults make fantasies in their heads that these elephants are happy – and that the younger generations also delight in this cruel, miserable pastime. This is not based on reality.

If you have any questions on this matter, take your children to see these animals live and up-close, and ask your children, “What do you think of the elephants?” Then listen and take to heart their answers.
