The Year 2016 is GIVING US THE BIRD, apparently! Twice in the same month I’ve received very similar, pathetic letters about a beloved…….but imprisoned…..caged bird dying on its owner. And now, this newly-abandoned jailkeeper is crying about the audacity that its prisoner had to up and die!
This kind of a question/comment is not the sort that I’m inviting people to send! I don’t do personal, psychic questions in the first place and that includes all pet death requests. But, some letters are better than others and these irrational feelings are shared by only a small number of pet owners, thank goodness; so I have previously allowed some of them in order to supply a mirror for the rest of you; even making that the subject of my fourth book “Hearing Inner Voices, The Dead Pet Whisperer,”
People! Can you please rip off the blinders that your easy-peasy life has pasted on you? Are you the kind of person who would write a letter such as the two examples below?
Humanity truly has gone soft if this is a prevalent attitude about death! So, I invite you to take part in a universal contest! Whenever you find candidates for a WORLDWIDE, “GET A LIFE OR GET A WIFE!” CONTEST, then circulate them among your friends and your local newspaper in order to awaken others to this type of behavior. Maybe, ridicule can help these people grow up!
hi dear Linda.on sunday my little canary named piu died.i found him 3 years ago,he was very sick and everybody told me he woud die.but I saved him.he also was totally bold.1 year ago he grew feathers and became the most beautiful canary I`ve ever seen.his death must have been very sudden.i cant stop crying,couldnt he stayed a little bit longer with me?he had so little time to enjoy his new life.have I done something wrong and that’s why he left?where is he now?is he happy ?did he had a good life with me?I know my questions might sound weird,there are so many birds dying every day.i don’t know why I’m so shattered over his loss.
Here’s the second one that just arrived today. I think these people should meet to discuss the “Good Life” that they gave their little inmates. The one below was abandoned (surely left with others) for six months before it died. But that was apparently okay, because “An overseas job made me do it!”
Subject: Help needed i miss my nop Message Body: Hi I had this lovely pet bird named Rocky, I used to call him Nop, every morning wen when he would see me wake up he would start singing n dancing in his cage, I was very attached to him. He knew when I. Was depressed or sick or in pain and he would come and try to sit as close as possible and would make some small tiny sounds which made me feel he is consoling me I traveled abroad for my job I dint want to go because I dint want to leave him alone I could understand him his likes n dislikes I would always protect him from things he was afraid of like umbrellas ladders etc wen I was leaving I saw him very sad he never spoke to me, n it has been six months for me abroad n he was sick n on 28th July he never ate the whole day n passed off at night. I’m feeling so responisible for his death. I never got to be with him in his last few struggling moments, my parents buried him in the neighbours garden below the window of my house, I’m really feeling dead, I don’t feel I deserve to live. I don’t kno where he might be. He was always der when I was sad upset or crying due to my depression n when he needed me I was not able to be there with him, I’m apologizing everyday for not being there with him, I feel no worth to live my depression has gotten worse now, I just want him to know I’m very sorry for bot being there for leaving him for the sake of a job abroad, I hope he is happy n safe wherever he is, can you please tell him to be happy wherevr he is. I can’t imagine this I can’t bear this loss I dont know what to say or do. I cannot mention eveything here I really need him to know I love him a lot and I am extremely sorry for not being there I can’t understand anything, why did god take him away from me
Oh My Holy Spirit! Would You like to weigh-in on this subject?
“Yes, I would. But no, I can’t! Because it will silence all these believers in your processing of these Words that you are taking dictation on. You see, this website was started so many years ago now, in order to explore the philosophical and spiritual unknowns between the fragile and ephemeral earth condition and the beautifully-permanent life in the Heavenly Realms. You were looking for deep questions and original-thinking.
It is, frankly, terribly insulting to Us to hear this quality of inquiry which some humans decide to “find out about,” when they have such a rare opportunity as the one you have offered. Recently, We’ve become tempted to shut down this pipeline from My Ear to their ear, because it’s too painful to witness what Humanity has come to. You know what you know, Linda Layli, Layli Linda, and it is so defeating and saddening to deal with small-minded, yet very-insistent people who see only their own advantages in discovering a willing and articulate pipeline.
This is the lot of many Souls with whom We have made contact! Eventually, they must flee from the likes of such cling-ons, simply to regain their peace and quiet.
WE DO NOT COMMENT ON PET DEATHS IN FUTURE; ESPECIALLY, BIRDS, WHOSE FREEDOM YOU HAVE ROBBED IN THE FIRST PLACE!”
Here’s a part of an article by Peta (http://www.peta.org/issues/companion-animal-issues/cruel-practices/caging-birds/)
There Is No Such Thing as a ‘Cage Bird’
There is no such animal as a “cage bird.” All caged birds were either captured or bred in captivity. In the wild, these beautiful beings are never alone. If they become separated from their flockmates for even a moment, they call wildly to them. They preen each other, fly together, play, and share egg-incubation duties. Many bird species mate for life and share parenting tasks. The evidence of their close companionship and concern for one another is plain to see.
Unfortunately for birds, the very qualities that we find admirable and fascinating about them—their brilliant colors, speech capabilities, intelligence, playfulness, and loyalty—have made them the third most popular type of animal companion in the U.S. It’s estimated that 40 million birds in the U.S. are kept caged and often improperly cared for—bored, lonely, and a long way from their natural homes.
Many people buy birds on impulse and don’t have a clue how much time, money, and energy is needed to care for them on a daily basis. Birds are as messy and destructive as puppies—something irresponsible breeders and retailers often won’t explain to customers.
And unlike puppies, birds continue this behavior for 15 to 75 years. Additionally, birds can be extremely loud and demanding and sometimes severely bite their caretakers. Because most customers aren’t prepared for an animal companion who is as curious, needy, and demanding as a 2-year-old child, countless birds spend their entire lives trapped inside a cage that’s too small in the corner of a living room, basement, or garage, unable to use or stretch their wings and deprived of the vital companionship of other birds.
Like dogs on chains, caged birds crave freedom and companionship, not the cruel reality of forced solitary confinement for the rest of their very long lives. Many people buy birds not knowing of the cruelty that they will be inflicting on them and often underestimating the care that a bird needs. In the wild, birds would never leave their flock, but pet birds rarely ever have the opportunity even to see another bird for their entire lifetimes. Pet birds are often kept in cramped cages where they are unable even to stretch their wings and never know the joy of flying or the happiness of freedom. Birds in cages crave freedom and companionship and often exhibit aggressive, neurotic, and self-destructive behavior as they languish in cramped cages. Because of their seemingly bad behavior caused by their torturous conditions, people will often condemn them to living in dark corners, in basements, or on balconies, all the while locked inside of cages.
Birds are known for their complex communication techniques, their beautiful feathers, and their unique intelligence, but when we cage birds, we take away their lives. Buying birds contributes to this horrible problem. Birds are meant to fly and be with their flock. If you are a bird lover, consider buying binoculars and going on bird-watching hikes or making a backyard oasis for your feathered friends. Never cage birds!
Because this is on the same subject, I’m going to reprint an earlier blog on my website called PET QUESTIONS WITHOUT ANSWERS, which you can also find if you scroll down on the page soliciting Questions For The Holy Spirit.
Linney asks – “I have lost my cat Rogue recently, and she had kittens about a month ago. There is one kitten that we are keeping because it looks just like Rogue, has the same personality as her. But the kitten is a male. Please respond…. I’m not sure if this is early reincarnation or something else….”
Oh, my Holy Spirit! Do You have any advice for Linney?
“N.O! These are the sort of questions I refuse to answer. They are way too specific. It’s okay if you publish them here, but please don’t ask Me to comment, as the Human Race cannot understand these matters and needn’t be asking about them.”
Martin writes – Thanks so much for your reply, you can’t possibly imagine how much I value your kindness & also wisdom & insights into this realm! ‘Bette My’ is what we called our wonderful Black & White Cat, ‘bette’ means little in Danish. I’m distressed not just from its passing but also the circumstances (it was approx 14-14½ years old).
Approx 3 weeks prior to its death it had undergone surgery where a tumor had been successfully removed which we were very grateful of. One Sunday it was enjoying some sunshine out on our terrace when it suddenly went into some uncontrollable spasms & since it had been in the sun for a while we thought it had gotten a sun stroke, we phoned the vets but there was only a switch-board employee since it was on a Sunday & she confirmed it could might well be sunstroke so we provide our cat plenty of Water & relaxation in the shade & this carried on into the coming days as we couldn’t see any symptoms or apparent illness apart from our cat not being able to stand properly so it was mostly confined to its transport box where we provided Water & food for it regularly, however the intake of nourishment stopped last Saturday & it passed away late in the evening to our utter shock!
I’m left filled with guilt & remorse because we neglected to take it back to the vets in time to try & save it, as we were later told it most likely suffered a seizure. The vacuum left behind is unbearable as its presence was ever commanding with its distinctive strong aura!
Oh my Holy Spirit! Martin feels guilty for his cat’s death because things might have turned out differently if he had returned to the Vet’s and had it treated for seizure rather than sun stroke. Can You give him any perspective on that?
“It is rather too much to expect that an owner can prevent the death of an elderly cat. He did the very best he could have done with the instructions he was given. There is usually some reason found to punish yourself in the face of an unexpected death.
Don’t worry, Martin, death is normal, both to animals and humans, and it cannot be put off forever. Now, you need to forgive yourself and give Bette My credit for such a profound self-examination as part of her departure. She did not suffer during her passage from life and she is not suffering now. So, let her go peacefully and wait until it is your turn to die in order to receive proper answers to the questions listed below. These are too complex and not exactly important for those alive on Earth today. Plus, there is now a difference between The Past and The Future within the New Millennium, so old beliefs, such as Reincarnation, do not apply now.”
1.) What happens to animals in the afterlife, what type of transition do they go through & what type of life will they experience as I gather they live on, some place else in ‘soul spirit’, how does this differentiate from what they looked like here on earth & would we be able to recognize our own pet(s) at the time of possible reunion, have they changed in any way, shape or form?
“They usually don’t return in any way, shape or form to Earth, though they will greet their owners when they die if there is sufficient love between them and they will look the same as the human knew them.”
2). Where is our beloved cat now, & how can I keep track of her?
“Obviously, you cannot keep track of her. It’s not possible while you are alive. Not with your dead family members and especially, not with your animal friends. This is nothing for humans to concern themselves with.
3). Who meets/takes care of our animals on the other side?
“Again, too much information is being requested. Impossible to answer.”
4). Where is this place called ‘the other side’, is it on another spiritual plane, another density/dimension & how far (in distance) is this from planet earth?
“Never mind these physically-couched questions. It is apples & oranges.”
5). Is this place referred to as the ‘Rainbow Bridge’ a place where our pets continue the evolutionary path, if so how long do they stay there?
“Yes, people call it “The Rainbow Bridge.” Let’s just leave it at that. Animals do not come to Earth to evolve spiritually. They are already accomplished. They come to help humans evolve by teaching them how to love. Time is not measurable on that Side.”
6). Channelers propose the possibility of communication with a deceased animal through telepathy. I would be very grateful if you could tune into my cat’s thoughts via this medium & get return messages describing its current feelings/mood/frame of mind & how would I know it’s my cat you’re channeling to/from?
“We are not going to experience this cat’s thoughts right now because he is way too demanding of your services.”
I do feel strange goosebumps on my right lower leg that began when I transcribed this part of this long question into my journal to write down the answer. Let’s just assume that she is using my leg as a scratching post and move on from there.
7). I would very much like the opportunity to redeem myself towards out cat, is one provided a second chance here in life, as there’s so much left unsaid that I would like to be able to communicate?
“Maybe this message is that very opportunity? You can speak to your cat privately without any interpreter if there is anything that you want her to understand. She can hear your thoughts when you think of her. Stop being so worried and let her go on with her future self. Just let go of her. This is good advice for both people and pets when they cross The Great Divide. There is a reason for that name!”
8). Pets choosing to Reincarnate back here on planet earth do they choose their same owners if the bond is sufficiently strong, if so, how are we notified about their return arrival & will they come back in their infancy or as a strong, healthy youthful cat?
“Never mind hoping for reincarnation in this New Millennium. It has been discontinued!”
9). Do you think we will become reunited down here on this earth plane in this life-time, if so what would it depend upon?
“Reincarnation is not happening any more! For man or Beast!”
