By pulling in our energy fields or auras, we often can communicate with animals and other sources of information around us. I was able to do that with a roadrunner while visiting the Joshua Tree Retreat Center in Dec, 2012. I’m told that the birds are a bit skittish and will “run” away quickly if approached. However, as I sat quietly in the dirt, this one came up to within about 2′ or 61 cm from me. That was certainly close enough that I could have hurt it had I wanted to do so. Here’s how I learned to blend in with the aura of my surroundings.
In the previous posting on this blog, I spoke about the shamanic training I had had with Wes Geitz up in Canada and learning to look at the auras in the tracks made on the ground. Another of our lessons was about pulling the aura of a natural features in the landscape around us in order to hide. He explained the process and how to do it, and then sent us outside to go practice.
The retreat center in Arnprior, Ontario, Canada had been a Catholic monastery at one point, so the main building had well groomed lawns. I found a large tree stump out in the middle of the grass and sat on the ground, with my legs straddling the base. I imagined at the time that if anybody had driven by, they would have seen a woman, sitting on the ground, hugging a tree. Yet, I felt drawn to this particular tree stump. so I followed Wes’s instructions. I pulled the aura of the tree stump around me and waited to see what would happen.
That part of Canada has beautiful black squirrels that looked elegant as they scampered across the grounds. As I sat quietly, watching one approach, he disappeared and then popped up right across from me, sitting on the other side of the stump. He was about 2′ or 61 cm from my face. He twitched his tail anxiously back and forth, and I could feel him saying “Something’s not right! Something’s not right!” This went on for about 1 minute until I had to start laughing, as the squirrel looked so cute. At that point, the squirrel took off to the top of the nearest tree. I got cussed out in squirrel language…” You tricked me! That’s not fair!” were some of the kinder things I was getting, as he threw twigs and pine cones at me. So, his strong reaction that he obviously had not seen me was confirmation for me that at least for a short period of time, I had been successful at pulling the aura of the tree stump around me and hiding in plain sight.
I have some friends who do a similar thing in that they pull their essence deeply inside of themselves and practice being invisible. They practice their skills by sitting on benches in local malls and make themselves “not there”. So successful are they, that they’ve actually been sat on by people who just didn’t see them already taking up space on the bench.
When I told my roadrunner story to some others at the gathering at Joshua Tree, there were two others that I spoke to who had gotten as close to the roadrunner as I had. However, those two are also of Spirit, so I’m not surprised that they would too be trusted by the bird. Perhaps the most amazing story I’ve heard of animals connecting with a human is this story by Lynne McTaggart of the death of Lawrence Anthony and the elephants who came to his funeral. These elephants, whom he had saved, had no way of knowing that he had died, and came from twelve miles away to be at his funeral. When I tap into animals, I find them so much more unencumbered by all of the layers of disconnect from the energy field around us. Their purity of Spirit is refreshing, and gives me something for which to strive. I thanked the roadrunner of reminding me of this fact and I vowed to spend more time connected into Source and its amazing, strengthening energy.
