In a van with five hungry, lunch-seeking women, Garmin on course, you can imagine the myriad of conversations filling the vapors; opinions, me-firsts and "if it was up to me's".
No subject had a chance for more than a 17-second command except the show-stopper, "should my husband ride the sick horse or not".
As the only Animal Communicator in the confined space whose resume touts years of experience dealing regularly with this-type subject one would think that deflecting to that experience would be an inevitable conclusion.
For me, thankfully it did not. In my humble opinion there was more prudence to provide space to allow the back and forths ebb and flow to reveal where each one was coming from.
However, as nature intends, there is always space for a healthy competitive encounter. And, as we know, the lead in most animal groups is the female. This group, with six of us, was no exception as one rose to the top with a calm resolve and a sageful tone:
"Let it go."
With that wise utterance mutual agreement concluded but not without an observation from me, the Animal Communicator, in the mobile room. Observing this scenario proves once again that you, an Animal Communicator as well, may find yourself faced with a similar situation one day.
One of our responsibilities is not to overreact.
Holding back can be a good thing to provide space and allowance for thoughts, rationales and other reasonings to overflow into the others' thought processes.
Balance with full vision of both sides is our goal.
In the heat of the moment, balance may seem a far reach. Yet that is the experience and visual we hope will nestle within the folds of the listener.
People tend to resonate to the strong, silent type.
If that is what you demonstrate you most likely will be called when the next crisis floats to the surface.
One thing to keep in mind is that people are very complicated beings, more so than animals. As your responsibility, helping people and animals successfully cohabitate, untangling their issues and concerns will always play a part.
The challenge is to assume that role and make it appear as effortlessly as possible.
More's comin' on this never-ending and fascinating subject.
