AOL Bulletin – 7th June, 2017 – The Animal Kingdom

The aim of this week’s newsletter is to remind you to connect to all life.


Healing With WolvesVeterans suffering from PTSD now have options other than traditional treatment and medication. It’s called wolf therapy. At Lockwood Animal Rescue Center, these veterans are getting back their nature.
A wonderful short video of veterans  receiving comfort, love and healing from rescued wolves. Did you know that one animal picks out one veteran and never again will it pick out another person.

 “Dreaming with Wolves” by Julia Griffin of One True Self. 

 Dreaming With WolvesA close friend recently discovered a 1930 National Geographic with an article about a Finnish shaman, who used the same exercise shared with me by the wolves. The synchronicity encouraged me to share my article  (2003) and dreaming exercise with you.
Eight years ago, I was chosen by the wolf, and began my Odyssey into a world so beautiful and rich that I can only attempt to share it. Somewhere in my voyage, I became a wolf myself. I know what it is to dream with a wolf, to run with a wolf, to be a wolf. I know the incredible psychic power and tremendous strength of the wolf.
Tonight and for all of this week, Sheba the White Wolf has been with me. I hurry to write while I am in her presence, so that my words will be touched by her Truth. Tonight, we will run under the full moon, and I will run easily and lightly. Her strength will carry me effortlessly, and when we are done we will dream together in the great forest where wolves dream and meet to travel into different worlds (See Dreaming Exercise below.)

NOTE: We love Julia’s insights and have used them several times in our Newsletter but I hadn’t read her story of living with a wolf.  It made be feel humble, there is so much to learn and experience in this wonderful world of ours…….Rosemary


The Dreaming Exercise by Julia Griffin

  • There is a forest where all wolves dream. It is a primeval forest that we all know in a part of our mind. You have been there before. Your soul knows this place. Go to this place in your mind, and in a little while, if you let yourself really see it, the wolves will come.
  • You have known the wolves in other lives. Once, they lived with you, and you ran free and wild with them under the moon. Your body knows this. Let your body remember this.
  • Look around. We are in a vast forest. The trees are huge. They have never been touched by man. These trees are from a different time and place. They are reminiscent of cedars or hemlocks, but they are neither. They are trees that live in this special place, the Place of the Wolves. You can come here only if you are invited. The wolves are calling you because I have asked.Feel this place. Look around and see that the earth is clean and the sky is blue. The sky will darken as the wolves come. It will turn into twilight, and we will travel through the half-world. The half-world is a space in time. You will come to know it.Feel the earth beneath your feet. The earth is warm and the debris on the forest floor is cool and clean. There is moss in the damp places and around the edge of the trees. Feel its softness. There also are rocks beneath the forest floor. Feel their strength.In a little while, you will run. Let your feet and legs feel the rocks, the hard and soft places of the forest floor. Your feet will guide you through the night.
  • The sky is darkening, turning a purple blue. As the first stars are rising, you hear the first wolf howl. A waxing, crescent moon is beginning to rise in the west (the moon will change after the first time, but see it as a quarter crescent the first time).The wolves are beginning to howl. You can hear and feel your wolves. This pack of wolves is your own, unlike anyone else’s. Feel them. Feel the pull of their power. Soon they will be with you. The fine hair on your neck and body will begin to stand up.
  • The first wolf comes to you. It is an Alpha wolf. If you do not know its name, then ask — or wait until you know within. If you do not get a name this time, you will another time.Your body will change in the presence of the wolf. Remember how running and jumping felt when you were fourteen or fifteen? How it felt like flying? Remember what it is like to be incredibly strong.
  • The forest that you are in sits on a long wide ledge. Walk out to the edge with the wolves. One or two wolves may join you, or the entire pack may come. Below, you can see a valley. Above are the mountains and the moon.Hear the wolves howl. Watch as they lift their noses toward the moon. Let the vibrations of their howls travel through your body.Now it is time for you to run.
  • Run with the wolves. And as you do, you may find a space that is like a crack. If you do, travel through it. If not, just run through the forest. The forests will change as you run. The rest is up to the wolves. You will go where they take you.

One day this dream may seem as real to you as anything you have ever known. When that happens, you will know the power and strength of the wolf.
NOTE: As you run with the wolves, the living objects of your vision may appear intensely red or blue, or glowing. This is normal. Wolves see in red and blue — red to hunt, and blue as their normal vision.

The Mysterious Pyramids of Bosnia  ~ with Julia Smith.

Julia SmithIn 2005 Dr Semir “ Sam” Osmanagich made an incredible discovery while visiting a small museum in the tiny village of Visoko, just out of Sarajevo.  It was a Divine Universal unfolding of his life path.  He just happened to notice this mountain, and notice it is in the exact shape of a pyramid and “Knew” it was one.  The rest is an unfolding story, and humanity is benefiting right at this time of the Great Awakening.
Julia once again joins us in sacred circle to share fascinating information and high vibration energy from her recent Earth energy travels:  the incredible Bosnian Pyramids.  If you are drawn to these pyramids or want to know more about these pyramids which are creating a sensation worldwide, then this is a night not to miss.  Julia will share with us what is going on with the energies here, information about the pyramids, and the effects on the field of archeology.  Julia will be bringing along her crystal tubular harp with 10 transformation crystalline sound frequencies for us to receive a clearing and recalibration and also facilitate a cosmic light-filled meditation the details of what that will be will become known in the Now moment on the night!

 A smaller group than usual, maybe due to the cold? But also nice to see some new faces, welcome to Rebecca, Deborah, Carla, Adam and Eva and lovely to see you again Vashi. Those that did come were blessed with another beautiful night of song and sound. I only just found out that one of our regular members, Robert, travels all the way from Penrith by public transport to be with us on Mon nite. I would like to acknowledge his dedication, and may he be blessed with an extra Tim Tam.
The event was a beautiful procession blending different instruments and cultures.
* We were greeted gently from Tibet with bells from John and bowls from Jewels.
* Then a lovely duo with bass Joe taking us through Expansion while Elle harmonised with Om Mani Padme Hum.
* Followed by a travelling resonator and chimes over our heads. Usually I associate the chimes with raindrops, but because of the temperature I think they might have been snowflakes tonight.
* Jewels treated us to the bowls again, this time accompanied with her angelic singing.
* Then we had a bit Out of Africa, with Joe and Elle delivering a soulful version of “Koth Biro” from the movie “The Constant Gardner”
* John’s Gong Bath seemed more gentle, reflecting the intimacy of the evening
* Finally holding hands in a circle and singing “Peace on Earth”
Whatever the temperature on the outside, we all left feeling warm on the inside.
A big thanks to the John, Jewels, Joe and Elle for sharing their talents and providing such a wonderful night.

 Food is FreeThis film is about the Food is Free laneway started by Lou Ridsdale in Ballarat, Australia.
People leave excess food, seedlings, plants and even food scraps for composting on permanent tables set up in a laneway alongside Lou’s home. Anyone can take food for free.
The initiative was not just about promoting the idea that everyone should have access to good food, but about drawing together communities to help each other to live and eat well. Click Here. 
 NOTE:  What a wonderful initiative this is.  Perhaps we can start this at Jacarana Haven with all the potatoes we have been planting.  18 kilos of seed potatoes should produce a goodly number of spuds and we still have a number of pumpkins to find homes for.,,,,,Rosemary
