Animal Speak Assignments

Empathy With Nature: SERIES 2 ~ Animal Speak

Session 1: What is an Animal?

1) Pay attention to animals. Look at animals out doors, in books, and even on the internet. Take a picture of the animal with your mind, like you're taking a snapshot. Then close your eyes and let the image of the animal develop in your mind, similar to how a Polaroid camera works. Give your animagination a daily walk around the block by visualizing animals. This will build the power of concentration for more Power Animal encounters in future sessions.

2) Pay attention to what comes toward you in life. This can be animal encounters, both outer and inner ones - in visions and dreams. There may be synchronistic signs and omens of other sorts as we approach the "Other-world." Pay attention to them - but don't over interpret them.

3) Ruckshau: Take a few minutes each day to review the events of your day in reverse order. View yourself from an objective, higher perspective, going through your day backwards. What do you see, what are you shown, what do you learn about yourself? This is a way to strengthen many things including mental picturing, memory, empathy and self-knowledge.

Session 2: Where is a Spirit Animal?

1) Look at animals. Look at animals outdoors, in books, and even on the internet. Take a picture of the animal with your mind, like you're taking a snapshot. Then close your eyes and let the image of the animal develop in your mind, similar to a Polaroid camera. Give your animagination a daily walk by visualizing animals. After that you can draw them on paper with pencil crayons. This will build the power of concentration for more Power Animal encounters in future sessions.

2) Practice setting positive intentions. For example, set your intentions before leaving your home that you will have positive encounters with others. Set intentions in the space where you live, that it is sacred space, space that is "set apart" from the disturbing craziness sometimes in the world. Set positive intentions before going to sleep, that you will move into higher astral space and bring back from the Dream-time good things in your soul, to carry you through the day. Even setting sacred intentions before consuming food, that you may get the most benefit from it. If you encounter difficult or dark things, connect to the light of your high intentions.
