    Us Legal Notices Animal Insights T he Rule of One by Charlene Boyd Sometimes as I read the papers watch TV or just really listen to what is going on in our world on an environmental and humane level I become discouraged about all that should be done to to improve the lives and treatment of animals Yes we have made much progress in animal nutrition and medical advances and improved humane ways of training animals Sadly there are still many unenlightened people in this country and in most parts of the world that do not see the beauty intelligence and value in animals Whether this comes from ignorance indifference or prejudice animals are still being mistreated and exploited worldwide I have a philosophy toward all the inhabitants of the natural world and while it will not be something you ever see in the paper or on TV it makes my heart happy and helps me feel I am doing my small part each and every day to make the world a better place for animals I call it my rule of one For me it means that every day no matter how busy I am I do at least one action that is love based to help animals We have several bird feeders in the backyard that are filled daily No one makes me do this it s not required but I will be the first to admit that I derive much pleasure from the never ending take offs and landings of the birds I know that Winter even in temperate climates is difficult for the birds to find enough food When we have extreme cold like the East Coast has been experiencing thousands of bird die due to lack of food When I shop at PetSmart and use my credit card I have the option of donating a dollar to help shelters and homeless animals What could be easier to help shelters and rescue groups help pets find loving forever homes The website www theanimalrescuesite com encourages you to click daily as their sponsors donate 6 bowls offood per click That might not seem like much but I was amazed when I checked the website statistics to see how many bowls of food were donated daily by their sponsors It is a fast painless way to help each and every day We also cleaned out our garage after Christmas and I took a deep breath and gathered up all the cat carriers old dog crates and X pens that I was no longer using and took them over to a non profit rescue organization in South Orange County They were thrilled to death as they will use them to transport dogs and cats waiting for adoption or going to the veterinarians We all have those bath towels that are past their prime and rescue groups always need them for bathing pets and using in crates and kennels Why not add a toy or two It can be pretty

    bond that companion animals share with their owners is one that is built on love and trust Through this special relationship both owners and animals have an opportunity to experience love trust and mutual understanding It is the key to all relationships we develop with our pets As we become more sensitive to our pets we learn that we are all one created by the same Divine spirit Our ultimate goal is to live in harmony and joy with the animals we love and cherish The Magical Connection With Our Pets As I was walking with one of my dogs around a lake in South Orange County I was aware of the number of people of all ages out walking their dogs Big dogs bouncey puppies slower moving older dogs Cats from nearby condominiums were lying on porches or hiding under bushes watching the parade of people and their dogs I began to think what brings people and their pets together Why do we have pets Pet owners in America spend billions of dollars annually on premium foods training classes grooming supplies and doggie day care and other pet related services Specialty veterinary practices which include dermatology cardiology oncology and orthopedics are readily available Accupuncture homeopathy and chiropractors are now considered an integral part of health care for many pets Today more pet owners than ever before are participating in dressage herding agility and other pet related activities Rabbits cats and even miniature horses are a part of animal assisted therapy programs in convelescent hospitals acute hospitals and facilities that take care of people of all ages with special needs Pets are definitely in the mainstream of American society As I watched people walking and socializing with their pets I began to think a little more about the reasons we choose to share our life with animals For many people owning and caring for a pet is their first experience with unconditional love Our pets allow us to receive love and express love without censure or judgement They accept us unconditionally It does not matter to them what we drive or where we live we are perfection in their eyes They are just happy to be with us sharing our daily life The relationship that develops between owners and their animal companions is one that is based in mutual love and trust I have worked with many owners who have told me that for the first time in their life the well being of a dependent animal brought out feelings of compassion and caring that transcended other more materialistic or trivial demands in their lives Pets are so willing to give of themselves to help us grow in a more spiritual sense People today are realizing that the term all is one has a deeper meaning and includes all forms of life No one form of life is better than the other Whether you are riding a horse in the foothills of the Sierras in the early morning or frolicking

    in our energy field after centuries of observing those with money cultivate a lot more of it Plus it benefited the wealthy who wanted to protect their assets to support a belief system that kept their estates out of the hands of those who did not have it especially since the concept of lack which assumes there is not enough for everyone is embraced by both the rich and poor The rich believed they had to protect what they already had by keeping it from others namely the poor They believed their position to be vulnerable since they too operate under the principle of lack That is why they have worked so tenuously to maintain supremacy in the monetary system One method they have used to ensure their continual wealth is to tie self esteem to material possession a method that will be discussed further in this article Many of us are imprinted with the belief that our personal worth is contingent on our material wealth whether we logically buy into it or not We carry the imprint that traps us emotionally in the low self esteem low manifestation cycle As mentioned the rich wished to ensure they continued to get richer by staking a claim on what they perceived to be limited resources The rich have intentionally ensured future rights to their claim by aligning self esteem with abundance If you are feeling judgmental of the actions of the moneyed class please do not as we have contributed by accepting this belief system Based on the presence of this low self esteem poor manifestation imprint we become convinced that our self esteem is closely associated with abundance We think we are a better person if we own designer clothes a large home or a fancy car At a core emotional level many of us have bought into the premise because it is imprinted in our energy field We say things like the clothes make the man We even wear items that display the name of the designer be it Guess or Calvin Klein or Louis Vuitton on the outside Or we may feel cooler in a BMW than a Saturn Once we associate self esteem with abundance we are trapped because our self perception remains low until we manifest name brand clothes a high credit limit or a large house in the suburbs But unfortunately our manifestation power is hindered by our poor self esteem It s a vicious cycle We want yet we subconsciously sense we do not deserve We must move beyond the low self esteem poor manifestation pattern imposed by eons of conditioning Here is how to do so Make the following prayer request As always with my prayer requests prior to enacting it you will need to instruct your subconscious to create a surcharge of vital force i e mana prana chi so that your guides have sufficient energy to clear your programs They do the work not you After you have told your subconscious

    instances of inviting both personal and business male relationships into my life that initially seemed terrific but evolved into less than savory situations In my most recent experience which involved a legal matter with a male I had multiple situations in which I had to contact people mostly females for official documents for court During the course of making requests pertaining to my situation female after female would immediately jump to my assistance because they had been there They all wanted to tell their own story and they were happy to re prioritize their tasks of the day to respond to my request first I listened to other women who told stories about how they had opened up their heart to a man only to end up being in combat with that same male when the relationship did not work out whether a business dissolution divorce or so forth All of these stories were ugly and I m sure that both parties were scarred by the occurrence not just the female As I interacted with women who were very willing to tame the bureaucratic rules of large organizations to help me that famous bond that instantaneously occurs between women who have undergone similar situations and relate strongly I realized that there was something very wrong There were too darn many of us women who had opened our heart to a male and gotten bitten I asked my guides to provide insight into the situation and here is their feedback the state of being open hearted has become convoluted because of the male dominated hierarchies that have ruled Earth for much of our written known history Open hearted equates to weakness in a male warrior aggressor world whereas open hearted used to equate to power through partnerships and alliances In other words open hearted is considered a vulnerability rather than a position of self empowerment Open hearted used to equate to being self empowered via feelings of love and compassion Because females enact the role of nurturer in our society women are the main candidates for emoting heart energy Therefore they are the ones who are most likely candidates for suffering when advantage is taken of an open heart Once the club has formed namely the heartbroken disempowered women s club it takes on a life of its own as women join becoming the male bashers who got stung club When enough women coalesce the pattern becomes imprinted in the DNA of every female on the planet It s time to resign as a member of this club and become a self empowered heart whole female once again The following prayer request has been created to alter the imprint that you hold in your DNA that equates open heartedness to weakness rather than self empowerment As always with my prayer requests prior to enacting it you will need to instruct your subconscious to create a surcharge of vital force i e mana prana chi so that your guides have sufficient energy

    I tuned into her guides and used my soul clearing charts to do the research I determined that Kay had joined a convent in a past lifetime In the bardo or planning period prior to that specific lifetime she had contracted to learn the lesson of generosity Since we learn through contrast on our polarity planet Kay joined a group of religious women in that lifetime with whom she expected to give and receive generosity of spirit and friendship yet instead she experienced a seemingly unjust form of excommunication from the group In other words she learned about generosity by not receiving it In fact it was quite the opposite experience I cleared the subconscious patterns that she still carried based on her past life trauma of being ousted from an anticipated sustaining and caring environment In Kay s current lifetime she acted generously yet attracted a disproportionate number of unresponsive or stingy people into her life As a reflex she was living defensively trying to minimize her hurt by only allowing weak easy to control people into her life which was neither fulfilling her nor enhancing her soul growth I cleared her programs At this point in the clearing I thought we were done However Kay s guides led me to another past life in which Kay had been the stingy one She had withheld assistance from those who really needed it again with the intent of learning generosity through contrast Words like shrew and dictator were used to describe her behavior So I cleared those programs as well I assessed the situation of Kay leading a life generosity in which she got hurt followed by a life of being stingy followed by her current life of acting out against the whole situation It felt like it would never come to balance It reminded me of pouring milk on cereal when I was a kid I would add the milk but the cereal would absorb it I would add more milk but then there was more cereal than milk I would have to add more cereal I never quite got it right and got overly full in the process It was the same way with Kay I needed to clear her bounceback cycle so she could overcome her frustration and truly achieve balance The bouncing back and forth or endless loop became prevalent in several subsequent clearings This type of pattern gets my attention because it indicates that my guides want me to write a clearing program that will help more than the few people I clear As I tuned into my own guides they explained what was happening Apparently we are at a critical juncture in balancing light and dark on this planet Many of us who are representing the light are actually being hindered by the endless loop in their balance program Instead of moving forward to a place of balance we are cycling between extremes trying to achieve that perfect ratio between cereal and milk We
