Like hundreds of thousands of other people, I signed up the Oprah’s 21 day Desire & Destiny meditation series. She introduces each day; Deepak Chopra leads the meditations.
Like hundreds of thousands of people, I am having joyous moments of peace, eye-opening moments of realizing I am the only person holding me back and amazing moments of insight into who I really am and what really makes me smile.
One of the biggest things I have learned about myself is that what I really want (Day 8) is to live from my heart in peace and joy.
Yesterday, I learned that something that happened to me almost 20 years ago was real!
It was Day 12 – Inspired me – the me who steers from her heart.
While meditating a thought shot straight into my brain about an experience I had in 1996, also while meditating. I was deep in meditation when a voice, clear as a bell said, “Rescue me.”
It was so clear that I came up out of a very deep meditation, slipped out the side door of the house and walked the 2 acres we own, trying to find the bird, rabbit, kitten or dog that had called to me to rescue it.
There was no spirit out there in need of help but I took it to mean that I was to write about animal communicators.
I did tons of research but I was just not convinced that this phenomenon was real – that people could hear and talk to animals. And I put the idea away. Until yesterday.
I believe that I am to write a book entitled Rescue Me with an author who I met through her book, “Blessing the Bridge: What Animals Teach Us About Death, Dying and Beyond” a book that helps us ease the transition of our pets from here to the next plain.
I say I “met” the author, Rita Reynolds, but I didn’t really meet her for 6 years. During the first 6 years, we corresponded via email. Our friendship grew out of words flying through the ethernet.
Two years ago I met her and we were so very surprised at how alike we were, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. She ran an animal rescue – saving old dogs, throwaways that people were tired of and didn’t want to support as they aged and died.
And yesterday, more than 15 years after I was called to “rescue”, I believe I discovered why Rita and I met, maybe just one of the many reasons we met. I believe we are to write a book about rescuing living spirits and helping them to finish their lives in comfort, in peace and surrounded by love.
Yesterday, because of Deepak and Oprah’s Desire & Destiny meditations, I didn’t hesitate. I sent her an email about the idea, right away!

Wow, I can relate to the power of the heard word during meditation. Good luck with your book. It deserves to reach many people.
Thanks for the kindness. It had been so long since I heard that call that I had forgotten about it until yesterday…and now, the thought is launched and I am excited!
