Going into meditation to see who shows up is always fascinating for me. Even though I have been doing this for years it still surprises me when someone shows up without any conscious thought about who it might be. Today, it was a Polar Bear. She told me her name is Shatung. For those of us who are highly sensitive we sense and feel the emotions of others. Fortunately, this extraordinary sensitivity is also the gift of being highly intuitive. Even though I felt her deep sadness I was also able to hear her message. That is the blessing…and fortunately there are always ways to close the door on the energy that comes at us continually and open up to it when it serves us. We do have control.
Shatung: It is getting very difficult for me to hunt to feed myself and my family. Our landscape is changing. Everything in my world is changing. What was once a perfect place for me no longer is. There is less ice for me to live on. I am frightened for my species and for our world. We are a very gentle form but we need our home. We are being chased out of areas where we once lived with great abundance. There are man made structures where we once hunted and roamed. When will this stop? Will our land be given back to us?
Wendy: I know that the earth is warming as a result of man’s use of fossil fuels which is why your land is disappearing. Many of us are working to change this. We are changing our lifestyle to be less dependent upon these fuels and to use sources of energy more naturally provided by our world like the sun and the wind. It won’t happen overnight. There are people who care about what happens to your species. They are fighting for you and your survival. I feel your sadness and I feel your fear.
Shatung: How many of you are there? When will it stop?
Wendy: I can tell you that the number of those who understand your plight is growing everyday. Large groups of people have come together to correct what is happening. Because there are so many of us contributing to this problem we often feel like there is little we can do to make a difference. Talking with you now I am given more resolve to do every little thing I can think of to reduce my use of fuels so I know I am a part of the solution and not the problem. If everyone else that cares makes these small changes it will make a difference. Simple things like changing out incandescent or fluorescent bulbs to LED lights, driving less, lowering (or raising) thermostats, buying locally and with minimal packaging are things we can all do. We can also choose wisely as we select those who make decisions for us.
I also know that our prayers and intention are very powerful. I am asking others to take a few minutes to send prayers/light/or intention for resolution to the polar bears.
Shatung: Humans don’t seem to understand the delicate balance of earth’s creatures. Each species carries a specific energy that contributes to the whole. If my species or others are lost, there is a tear in the energetic fabric that weakens the overall stamina of the earth affecting all. There is perfection in our world.
Wendy: I am truly sorry for what is happening to you and your home. I do promise to do what I can to help reverse this trend. Is there anything you would like from me or others?
Shatung: Send the fish back. The seals are gone because they have no fish to eat and we need the seals.
Wendy: I will share this information with others so they can make wiser choices. Thank you for sharing your concerns with me. Remember that many people do care about you and your families.
After our conversation I did a google search on Polar Bears. I learned that some populations are diminishing, but not all. Still they are an endangered species. I also learned that overfishing of cod and some other species is resulting in fewer seals and therefore less food for the Polar Bears. What she said to me about “bring back the fish” then made sense. If you would like to learn more about how you can help the Polar Bears, here are a couple of sites I found that might be helpful. Polar Bears International and World Wild Life Organization.
