Intent + Love = Miracles
by Mary J. Getten
In my work as a telepathic animal communicator I am often in awe of this marvelous yet inexplicable process. How is it possible that I can have a conversation with a collie in New York from my cabin on Orcas Island, Washington? What mysterious force moves the information between us, thousands of miles apart, helping the collie stop his incessant barking?
Although I dont understand the physics, I know that each living thing is connected energetically. By tapping into that energy network, I am able to consult with, counsel, listen to, and help all types of animals. Our conversations usually create more harmony and understanding between these intelligent creatures and their human companions.
Lately I have begun to use this energy network on a larger scale. The results are so astonishing that I would like to share a story with you, to help you recognize your own power and, hopefully, be inspired to use it.
In addition to my animal consulting practice, I have been intimately involved with marine mammals for more than a decade, both as a rehabilitator of seals and sea lions and as a whale/wildlife naturalist in the San Juan Islands of Washington state. Animals are my life, and marine mammals are my passion.
Last summer when the Makah tribe of Neah Bay, on the northwest tip of Washington state, announced that they would begin whaling, I joined with many activists to stop the slaughter. I spoke about it on my whale-watch trips, circulated petitions, and put my efforts into educating the public.
During my eight years as a naturalist, I have become very close to J pod, a resident group of twenty orca whales. I am currently writing a book with their pod leader, Granny, who is a wealth of information at 87 years of age as well as a dear friend. One day last summer during a conversation with Granny, I was driven to tell her about the impending whale hunt. Her response was immediate. "We will warn the grays. We will tell them," she replied fiercely.
I breathed a sigh of relief, knowing that Granny would handle it, yet her words haunted me. "Tell them, tell them," I kept hearing. Finally, I got it. I could also tell them. Heck, Im an animal communicator; why hadnt I thought of it before?
I sat down and went into a meditative state. Deeper and deeper I plunged, until I reached the level where whale communication takes place. I called out to the resident gray whales that live near Neah Bay. When they responded, I told them about the impending slaughter, but their reaction astonished me. They didnt believe me!
I decided to appeal to a vaster authority. I called out to the deva of the migrating grays in the western Pacific. A very sweet energy, sympathetic to my plea, appeared. "I will keep them safe," it replied. "I will guide them offshore." Thank God, I thought, but what about the resident whales? They were the most vulnerable.
I returned to my physical reality confused and perplexed. Then I put myself in their place. If a voice I didnt know called me on the phone and said that someone was coming to kill me, how would I react? It would give me the creeps, but I certainly wouldnt change my life. However, if twenty people told me the same thing, I would take notice, maybe even move away.
I mounted a new campaign, sending maps and letters to over sixty animal communicators across the country, telling them about the gray whales plight and showing the areas that they should avoid. I knew that each of my colleagues work in their own way on different levels, with different energies, and I hoped that when the gray whales were bombarded with messages, they would pay attention and heed them.
You dont need to be an animal communicator to send messages across time and space. Anyone can do it.
What was the outcome, you may ask? This fall, the gray whales had an "unusual" migration. They traveled so far offshore that some biologists declared them missing. There was much hoopla within the scientific community and the media about their so-called disappearance, but in the end, they all arrived at the calving lagoons in Baja on schedule.
The resident whales, however, didnt budge. I alternated between fearing for their lives and knowing that a divine plan was in progress. I stopped thinking I knew what was best and waited for things to unfold. The weather turned nasty unusually early this fall, and the whaling boats were grounded. No whales were killed.
This is a single example of how each and every one of us can have a profound and significant impact on our world. When crisis arrives, humans often lament, "What can I do? Im only one person." Well, sisters and brothers, you can do plenty, and you can do it from the comfort of your couch. We all have the capacity to call upon the universe for help. Help is always available; we just forget to ask for it.
Recently, when an oil tanker hit the beach at Coos Bay, Oregon, a friend in the oil-spill business called me. "Please talk to the birds," she said. "Ask them to stay offshore, away from the oil." I agreed to contact them, but I also reminded her that she could do the same. You dont need to be an animal communicator to send messages across time and space. Anyone can do it.
The process is simple. First, be aware of the world around you. When you see a situation where you would like to help, intend to do something. Maybe there is a developer getting ready to cut down a grove of beautiful trees in your city. Perhaps a devastating earthquake has hurt thousands of people and left them homeless. Your heart goes out to the orangutans in Borneo who are quickly losing their habitat, but what can you do? Plenty.
Start by quieting yourself and get into a meditative state. If you like, light a candle or perform your favorite ritual. Then intend that your energy be used to assist in the divine plan for the greatest good. Focus your energy. See the situation; surround it with harmony and healing white light. Send love to it. If you work with angels, saints, or guides, call upon them. Pray. Ask that the situation be resolved for the highest good of all concerned, then let it go.
Know that your intent and request for help will have an effect, but dont be attached to the outcome. We can create miracles; all it takes is intent and love.
