Cherokee, an elusive southern Bobcat, offers the above perspective to help us remember solitude is a must if we want to nurture our inner landscape. Though it may seem impossible when there is so much to do, making the most of even a short period of solitude can rejuvenate your mind and energize your body. Once free of the random noise of daily life, it becomes easy to rediscover and re-evaluate interests, goals, passions, and joys, which will allow you to develop a deeper, more meaningful relationship with your inner self. Take advantage of unexpected solitude whenever you can. If you find yourself caught in traffic, turn off the radio, and spend a few fulfilling moments de-stressing. Cherokee invites you to be quiet and observe. Witness what happens. This is Cherokee's secret for success.

Amazing Grace, our poet ocelot, is providing provocative thought as she shares with us another original poem from her heart.
taken captive as our hearts quietly moan.
Our lives stolen without a single thought,
Only a price paid, sold, then bought.
Ask us why we suffer, no freedom in sight,
our souls in darkness, no glimpse of light.
Hands of man wrapped tight around our necks,
We cry and howl, all signs of emotional wrecks.
Ask us why we continue to give,
every moment our fullest that we may live.
A long time ago, we agreed to help each other heal,
By remembering all is illusion and only love is real.

"We are world-weary and bored with the selfish, greedy ways of humanity and are sad you do not remember Mother Earth's ancient knowledge. We remember a time when you worked WITH Mother Earth and helped to sustain her sacred life. You no longer work with her and have taken much without giving back. That is why we are hunted. If Mother Earth cannot provide for us, where shall we go? Survival is in us. Everything suffers."
We have the inherent power within us to manifest and produce the necessary changes on all levels. Chloe has agreed to share her Tibetan roots of wisdom to help us remember how to come into balance with Mother Earth to help sustain all life.

Rashid, who has made her transition to a different realm, served her mission and knew it was time to start a new beginning and adventure elsewhere. She wants you to know that Civets are notorious for having a strange relationship with farmers who grow a particular Vietnamese coffee bean. As they cannot resist this bean, they will plunder plantations with excitement and over-stuff themselves. For the beans that do survive their digestive system, they are collected, ground and sold as a gourmet coffee known as "caphe cut chon" or Fox-Dung Coffee. The Civet is considered a type of fox in Vietnam.
In ancient times, coffee was considered a tonic that would boost energy and mental awareness. It also produced clarity and passion, so much so that the reigning rulers banned its consumption for fear of the people rising up and taking back control. You may notice today, that creative people gather in popular meeting places such as cafes drinking coffee. Is this a coincidence? This was the mission of Rashid, to help you remember that strange relationships can produce the most inspiring, creative and desired experiences in life. Thank you Rashid for blessing us with your wisdom. We will miss you.

Giving Cody your trust will allow that trust to come back to you multiplied. Giving someone or an animal your trust will also ensure you will never be lost, even if you are navigating new territory because on the inner level, you will always be in the right place at the right time. Cody gives you a heart hug as he feels your trust that will give him what he needs.
Cody is providing an opportunity for you to receive trust by giving him your trust. As you look into Cody's eyes, close your eyes and take a deep breath. Project a beam of light from your heart to Cody's heart. Ask Cody permission to speak with him. When you are ready, tell Cody you give him your trust that you will do everything you can to protect the environment and share with people that it is our responsibility to protect the animals.

Is it possible that animals also have Master Mind Groups? As Napoleon Hill created the concept back in the early 1900's, he defined it as, "The coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony." It appears to me that Sarabi started a Master Mind Group before she left and passed her knowledge and responsibility to Nikita. After all, the big cats are working toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony to help us in our personal growth as we realize they are kindred spirits.

I could see Shadow slowly walking back and forth when I called his name. "Worthless? Worthless?"I didn't know if Shadow was asking me or saying this as a rhetorical reply after reading my mind. "How could this concern you, Shadow?" I asked. Knowing Shadow, a reply was in the works when he said, "I would starve if someone didn't feed me everyday. I would go thirsty because there would be no water. I would get sick and not feel good." I could see he had an obvious point, but still didn't make the connection until he continued saying, "What would I do if everyone didn't volunteer to take care of me? You aren't worthless, you are priceless."
At that moment, I knew people should not volunteer to get their emotional needs met. They should volunteer because of the deep desire to be of service and to help others who need it. From the perspective of the one being helped, a volunteer is a life line, and I thanked this big cougar for caring to share what The Shadow Knows.
