Using intuition to rescue a bird
I may work as a psychic animal communicator, but that doesn’t mean I’m doing much bird rescue. In fact, I’m quite used to intuitively chatting with birds in trouble. Having a bird in trouble in my house is a different story.
It started as soon as I woke up
On this particular morning, as I walked downstairs to start prepping my breakfast I heard an odd sound. A bird had somehow fallen down the chimney and was stuck in our fireplace.
At first, I freaked out and worried about the bird. I yelled for my husband, Kevin to come rescue him for me. Kev is the resident spider and bug-saver, so doing a bird rescue in the house seemed like a logical job for him. He was slow to come down the stairs….
While I waited
It took a few minutes for Kev to get dressed (he was in the shower when I yelled) and this gave me a few minutes to calm down and think more clearly. I remembered that I am a professional Animal Communicator. Funny how those things slip the mind when you’re worried! I realized I could perhaps psychically chat with the bird to make the bird rescue a bit easier.
Trusting my connection
While Kevin was in the basement looking for a tool of some sort for bird rescue, I stayed in the living room near the fireplace. I connected with the bird intuitively and I could feel his heart racing. It made my heart race too and I had to be mindful to stay calm. I psychically explained to the bird that Kevin and I were going to help him get comfortable again outside.
I didn’t want to overload the bird because he was agitated. I repeated (in my head), “we’re going to help you get out” again and again and I stayed very balanced, calm, and clear.
The bird rescue moment
Finally, Kevin had retrieved the net he thought would help with the bird rescue and we were ready to give things a try.
Kevin quickly opened the fireplace door to try and catch the bird. This didn’t work and the bird flew through the living room, right past my dog Bella. Amazingly, Bella didn’t even look up at the noise of a bird flying by in the dining room.
The bird landed gently on the floor next to the window and sat there.
Suddenly, I knew exactly what to do AND that it would be OK. I grabbed a dish towel off the buffet (it felt to me like he didn’t want my hands to touch him) and he hopped in so I could gently cradle him in my hands. When my husband opened the slider, the bird just left my hands and flew away. We watched him fly to a tree, sit for a moment and fly back behind the house into the woods. And he felt just fine to me!
Why this bird rescue was so easy
Often, in challenging animal situations like this bird rescue, people lose their cool. They yell at one another, they freak out, and they worry for the animal.
When you remain calm in the face of chaos, your energy behaves differently and animals sense this. Animal sense our energy and they react to it. If I had stayed in a freaked out emotional state, there is no way that bird rescue would have been so easy. Haven’t you noticed that your emotional and energetic state affects the animals around you too?
