Human: Your First Step Is To Slow Down
When you get the same message over and over again - from widely different species - you begin to realize it's no joke. In such cases it becomes obvious that the animal kingdom is doing its level best to drive home a significant lesson, if we choose to heed it.
As they watch us intently and objectively, animals continue to prove that they know how we humans trip ourselves up. And they keep handing us solutions. This one just might be the equivalent of the "GO" corner space in monopoly: if we don't launch from here, we simply don't move forward:
SQUIRREL: SLOW DOWN TO AVOID REGRETS
"People don't realize their #1 problem is not slowing down. If they did,
- they'd make better decisions
- say nicer things they don't regret
- get more answers to questions and problems...heck, it's like Numero Uno."
Me: "But you move fast"
Squirrel: "Yes but we don't get ourselves in as much trouble as you humans do."
HORSE: SLOW DOWN TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF YOUR ENERGY
“I walk smoothly and with grace. Conscious of every step, I feel earth’s energy move through me.
"I am here to tell you that how you move affects how you feel. Rushing erodes the energy of your nervous system. It even blocks wisdom from emerging from within you.
"Some people—sensitive ones—feel the damaging effects of this more than others. They especially must work to slow down, or they will remain living in their external skin, as opposed to resonating from the soul within.
“When you slow down, your heart rate slows, your mind clears and your energy field, that others feel, becomes clear as a pool. Your voice becomes more soothing, and people gravitate to you and want to listen to what you have to say."
LION: SLOW DOWN TO UPGRADE YOUR THOUGHTS AND BEHAVIOR
"We have to address a troublesome human issue at the core of so many deep problems: getting out of your own way.
‘Your own worst enemy’ is an understatement..the overthinking, dragging the past up like an old bone that foretells the future…the rules and blockades you set up…what an imaginary world you’ve created! – and you believe it so strongly that you make it so.
Your unconsciousness is your greatest disease and it causes the downfall of your civilizations! If you cannot be aware of your own mind running rampant, you cannot be aware of the results of your behavior and you destroy everything around you.
Why do you think so many species keep telling humans to SLOW DOWN? Think before you act – but first- and most importantly: NOTICE WHAT YOU THINK. If the well is poisoned it sickens everyone and everything around it.
The source of your problems is between your ears. Make your own thinking your first priority or you will never make anything better."
