Lessons from Master Teacher Sakhara.
"It's time for you and me to have a few lessons," Sakhara announced. "I've been waiting patiently for many years to teach you. Any other Master would have kicked you out by now."
I was startled by this announcement, but I do understand about the relationship between the student and the Master, so I continued to listen without protest.
Sakhara continued, "It's time for you to learn patience."
Patience is a Cat hunting. The Cat is still, quiet, immobile. The Cat is so grounded that even the Earth doesn't feel the Cat's presence.
The Cat is so quiet that its whiskers don't dare move in a breeze. Its ears don't twitch if an insect lands there. Its tail must be perfectly still. [Sakhara admitted that this was still a challenge for her, as she's a "tail talker."]
The Cat's mind is so quiet that the mouse can't hear her thinking. The bird can't smell or see her. The chipmunk thinks the cat is a statue.
The Cat is so still that even her heartbeat is slowed. Her breathing is peaceful. Her eyes don't blink.
This is Patience in a Cat. When you learn Cat Patience, you'll find yourself still and quiet, both outside and inside. You come into harmony within and without.
Sakhara, lying next to me on the sofa with her back against my thigh, was totally still. I listened to her message and found myself sinking into deep peace inside myself, with only my mantra playing in the background. It had been a stressful morning as I worked on my taxes, but Sakhara knew how to quiet me completely.
Sakhara and I sat there for more than 30 minutes, just being present in the moment. We shared a deeply relaxing space. I am grateful for my teacher and her wisdom.
When did you last ask one of your animal teachers to share their wisdom? If you haven't done this lately, perhaps now is a good time to open your heart and imbibe.
Sakhara has promised me more lessons and has agreed that I can share them with others.
Thank you, Sakhara.
What Is the Best Way to
Explore the Wisdom of Animals?
So I recommend that you ask questions on all sorts of subjects. The more open-ended your questions, the greater room you leave for an animal to share his or her wisdom with you.
It's very important for you to be open to all sorts of possibilities. One example of this was a conversation I had recently with my Siamese cat, Violet.
We were in the car just starting out to the veterinarian for a chiropractic session. I had checked with Violet several times earlier that day to make sure she felt she wanted to go. This was not a new experience for her, so when we started off down the road in the car and she began vocally complaining, I asked her to explain her reaction. Didn't she want to go?
Violet: "I thought we were going to teleport to the veterinarian's office."
Nedda: "Why did you think that?"
Violet: "Well, you were talking to someone recently about learning to teleport, so I had the idea we might do that."
Nedda: [laughing] "Violet, I don't know how to teleport. I was saying I wanted to recover that ability someday soon, but I don't know how to do it now."
Violet: [a little sadly] "Oh. That's too bad."
Nedda: "Do you know how to teleport? If you do, perhaps you can teach me?"
Violet: "No, you have to take a course to learn that." [My sense was that this course is taught in the higher realms.]
Nedda: "Really? Hmm. Well, you do know how to dimensional shift, right?"
Violet: "Oh, yes. That comes naturally to cats. We don't have learn how to do that - we just do it."
Nedda: "Can you teach me how?"
Violet: "It's a natural feline ability, so I'm not sure how to teach it."
Nedda: "Well, how do you do it?"
Violet: "You change the frequency that your molecules and cells are vibrating at, and you move into the dimension aligned with that frequency."
Nedda: "Very cool! . . . So do you still see beings who vibrate more slowly after you shift?"
Violet: "Yes, we can, but they can't see us."
Nedda: "Then do you use this to hunt?"
Violet: "It doesn't work very well for hunting. While the animal you're hunting may or may not be able to see you, you can't really catch them without slowing your energy back down. It can be messy. So, no, we don't hunt that way."
Violet had completely stopped her vocal complaints after the first sentence or two of this intriguing conversation. We arrived at the vet's office with both of us calm and relaxed.
Most conversations with animals may not focus on esoteric subjects such as dimensional shifts and teleporting, but can still be filled with wisdom, insights, and powerful messages.
I spoke to a cat one time whose person was asking about how to help her husband. I felt a strong pressure in my chest in my heart area, and sensed that the man had a heart condition. Not wanting to frighten the woman, I asked her if her husband had had his heart checked recently. The woman said, "Oh, yes, he has a heart condition."
The cat then jumped in with, "That wasn't exactly what I meant. His heart is closed to love and that's why he has a physical heart problem. If he would open to more love, his heart would be healthier."
The woman asked her cat what to do to help her husband open his heart. The cat continued, "Get a beautiful card with a angel on it and both you and your son sign it. Write loving messages inside the card." The cat went on to suggest some messages, which were beautiful and personal to the family.
So you might see from these examples that all you need do is be open and keep asking questions. You might discover that some of your animals have great wisdom to share.
