German ShepherdI was at our local market buying veggies today, when two dogs wrapped their leads around me. Their person was embarrassed, but I am always grateful for such exchanges, because I know they are not random.

One dog was a rescue with a catheter sticking out of her face. She was a soft and gentle dog and asked me to help her with some healing. The plastic tube was uncomfortable and she wanted it out. Doing this kind of work is second nature to me and as I put my hand out, I could feel the energy building. So could she. She neatly put her head into my hand, asking for healing. Her person was confused, exclaiming I must have a special gift with animals, when really I was simply Listening and following the whispers of suggestion that I knew came from the heart connection this dog and I were sharing.

And so I did some healing there and then between the rows of veggies, pulling out the old trauma from her last home, which was the root cause of the abscess. The woman was mumbling something about “she hoped this dog would survive.”

“Of course she will survive,” I said. “She’ll heal now and the kindness that you have given her will ripple out to become blessings that will touch you more than you know.”

The woman smiled. The stress left her face. This is the beauty of expanding to take on an animal in need. You do become blessed in all kinds of different ways. This dog knew I would help and dragged her unsuspecting person t have an encounter with someone who would put her mind at rest. That would ripple out into the way she treated her dogs, and maybe her family and friends, and most importantly herself.

Sometimes it is good to hear that the heart action that you have taken was good and right, in a world where such things are not quite considered in such a light. The tide is turning most significantly – but it depends on the social circles you move in.

Another dog encounter was in the city one night, exhausted after a long day pitching our new film idea to colleagues and industry professionals. We had a long drive home, homework to do on our pitch, and our senior dog needed us on night duty as well. We slept in snatches.

So the last thing we needed was a lost dog on our hands. And that is exactly who I noticed outside the supermarket. He was a beautiful big male shepherd and I could tell he was deeply loved and exploring. But another sense told me he needed returning to his person and there was no way I could leave him in danger of winding up in the pound where his future would be dubious.

He had a collar but no tag and I asked everyone if they knew him. Many people were concerned. Only one young guy was willing to take care of him. But this huge dog was having none of that, so we fashioned a lead out of Andrew’s horseman’s string and I asked him to “Go home”.

His frantic person met up with us one street away from home, and we both gratefully climbed into her car. She took me back to mine while I translated this dog’s desire for an improved diet and some guidance and messages for his person.

She was incredibly grateful and promised to get him a tag. But the point of the story is that telepathy is always working and I “knew” I had to help this dog, because he asked me to. Not in so many words, but by a pull of moral consciousness. He wasn’t looking for a home. he had one. But he was looking for someone to help his person.

These are small acts of compassion that anyone can do You might not be gifted with the memory of telepathy. You might not be a shamanic healer. But you have a heart and if you listen to that heart, it will tell you the right thing to do, even if it is the “wrong” time. For there is no “wrong” time when it comes to Divine Action and Intervention.
