Honoring Animals, Nature, and Spirit

I love all of Doreen Virtue’s books. She is truly a loving spirit and a pure channel. Although she is best known for her angelic messages, she is actually a Universal Communicator, which means she can communicate with the spirits of all life forms.
In her book, “Healing With the Fairies,” Doreen wrote something that has always stayed with me. The Nature Angels, also known as Fairies, told her that animals and plants are happy to serve the Greater Good. They told her that most animals and plants don’t really mind being used for service or for food. What they feel so very sad about is how they are mistreated and devalued by most humans.
Most of us want to feel that our lives have meaning, and that we have contributed something for a greater cause. Animals and plants feel that way, too. Like us, they want to be appreciated for who they are and the service they give. Just like we do.
If animals are treated kindly during life, and honored during death, then they will naturally impart love, health, and blessings upon those who partake of them. Sadly, as it is, most of us are actually ingesting fear and pain when we eat, especially when we eat meat. It doesn’t have to be this way. It wasn’t meant to be this way. Native Americans knew the truth of this, and honoring animals and Nature was a very important part of life for them. Many Native Americans and other indigenous peoples are remembering their heritage, and they are teaching the world ways to live in harmony with our Earth.
Some of us choose to live more consciously than others. But we all know the difference between kindness and cruelty. And each of us can make a huge difference in our world by making small adjustments in our habits. We can begin here and now, as easily as making a choice, to make this a Kinder World.
Here are some simple things each of us can do. You can just start with one or two, and then add others as it feels right to you. Every little bit helps.
