“My Retrograde Epiphany” Animal Rescue and the Paranormal are Linked

Yesterday, I received a lot of criticism for defense of an animal rescue in Ohio.   This group is holding a fundraiser called “Shake.”   Pet safe paints are poured on the shelter’s elderly dogs……from what I could see, there was an abundance of pit bulls on their site……..Then, the dogs shake if off on to canvas and create Jackson Pollock like interpretations……The paintings are then sold to raise money for the rescue.

People were vicious….they called these rescue volunteers names, they said it was a form of animal abuse……they said it was sick to laugh at an unhappy animal with paint being poured on to his head…….

The one dog featured in a video did not look so thrilled with paint being poured on his fur……….but I asked them……..Would these moments of discomfort equal the fear of being walked to the back room euthanasia table at the shelter????    

Finally, overwhelmed with all the harsh comments, the rescue pulled their page from Facebook……..I read a sponsor of the event backed out after the pressure from animal advocates.

Was it right to so viciously attack the shelter volunteers, hard pressed to come up with ideas to raise funding for these unwanted animals……….Was pouring paint over their bodies the best of ideas…….Well, probably neither of these avenues was the right one to travel………But, these volunteers had good intentions…..to raise money for those who would most likely face death.

Then, I got to thinking of my own avenues in life.   My author bio describes me as an author/animal intuitive/paranormal investigator.   I have spent all of my adult life taking care of animals, those abandoned, unloved, wandering about bereft of love and sanctuary.    Were the wandering spirits I met along these avenues so different?

Throughout life, I have encountered paranormal groups with the same maliciousness toward one another as I felt yesterday.   I never belonged to a “ghost hunting” group, this being a very strong reason.

Those who love animals, those who thirst for answers about other realms……..they should work together, not against one another.

Leading a dog away from the euthanasia table………..informing a lost soul about the welcoming light………….is it really so different…….Our goal is sanctuary, salvation…..eternal life, not wandering “death.”

Too much harsh words yesterday……..what may save a dog a few moments of painted fur may cost him his walk toward that table in the end……………..

This Mercury Retrograde occurs on the 22nd……but for sensitives, its energy is already apparent.    Retrogrades make one ponder the avenues of life………..

Ponder yours……….
