My Path to Animal Chaplaincy

Animal Communication is Very Real
Can you see the connection?
On a picture perfect Autumn day last October, I made the unexpected acquaintance of  a beautiful white horse and a Croatian healer named Braco. 
 Energy soaring, my friend and I stopped along a stone wall to visit some horses that were hanging out nearby.  
As I was preparing to leave,  I glanced over my shoulder and caught the eyes of a horse on the far end of the pasture. 
For some reason, we both stopped in our tracks.  He had been grazing  with a friend.
In total amazement and never breaking eye contact, we both approached the stone wall.  And, no!  This isn't a romance novel!   
He rested his head on the wall in front of me, and this may sound insane, but the energy was palpable.  All I could think of was:  What is happening here?
Welcome to my journey.  It has been completely amazing so far.  So much to share that's already happened and new things on the horizon.  
Please bear with me as I attempt to put things in order....and catch up on my homework.

Hurricane Irene

Neighbors Helping Neighbors
Front Yard Clean-Up

Hurricane Irene hit last week leaving her mark just about everywhere in New England including our wooded State of Connecticut.  Loss of power and flooding brought neighbors and friends closer together. And as of this writing, there are still those soldiering through without many familiar creature comforts we all take for granted.  My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you.
For myself, one of the fortunate ones, I experienced no flooding and my power was out for only 24 hours.  This slow-motion passage of time created “space” to contemplate.
So, I slid my two pets, Kismet, my Maine Coon, and Smudgy, my Shih Tzu, over on the window seat (see pix on my home page), lit a candle or two, and inwardly began a review and renewal of my life's current path, Animal Chaplaincy.
The candle holders were the type that covered the flames so there would be no singed, fluffy tails nor toasted, pushed-in noses.
NEWSFLASH!   Prior to the storm hitting, the State of CT gave instructions on how to prepare animal companions and where to take them if you had to evacuate your home.       “Way To Go CT!!!”
This is a sure example of how even disasters such as Katrina do have embedded within them "some" positive lessons for change.  (Part of my life's review and renewal.)
Has Hurricane Irene shifted anyone else's perceptions at all?
Love & Light, Barbra
