I was in Pause mode on my animal communication for a week or more, so today was a great surprise and relief to see a squirrel make its way into my awareness! Not just any squirrel, either. This was one of the ones my in-laws often feed from their backyard. The squirrel is so comfortable there he just walks up to the screen door and hovers around for awhile until someone notices him and gives him food.
This was our conversation:
Me: Well, hello! How are you?
Squirrel: Let me adjust my thinking so I can match your vibration. As you heard, I’m a little squirrelly and first approached you with a somewhat demanding, irritating attitude. You work hard as a human to not speak to others that way, or to hear it in your own head from others, so I know you wanted to hear me more appropriately. The least and yet the most I can do is to meet you where you want to be. I gave my best and here we now are. 😊 (He doesn’t want to visually hug me, so instead he shows himself hugging a surrogate spirit in the form of a peanut, LOL.)
Me: Thank you very much, Mr. Squirrel. I appreciate your empathy about that.
Squirrel: Formality doesn’t suit us here, unless you want it. I’m happy and fine with just “Squirrel.” Or “Squir” for short. 😏
Me: Ha ha. Okay, thanks for your input, Squirrel. 😊 Is there anything you’d like to share?
Squirrel: Yes. Today I want to tell you about my meals at your people’s house. I go to many environments looking for what I want. You think it’s about the meals but it’s about comfort and sustenance. I don’t have to do much in the way of getting this: just look helpless (for some reason, I also hear “helpful”) and adorable, and they do the rest. I’m not a threat because I can tell they want to give this to me and others like me. I sniff around and look like they need to tame me, but that’s an illusion in some ways. Yes, I live in nature and it’s uncommon for us to spend much time with those who feel like they’re unfriendly toward us. We can learn to trust them to share their meals with us, though, and in doing so, they too feel like they’re getting a gift: love.
Me: For some reason, although you’re talking about food handouts, I don’t feel like that’s what you’re showing me. I feel like these are words you’re using, but behind the dialogue lies something deeper. Am I getting this right?
Squirrel: You see a visual of me hanging around, right? Literally hanging onto the screen door? I call them to me with my silent request. But I’m not always silent. I chatter, call to them, and make noise to draw them close enough to see that I need something from them. I have a lot of food already stockpiled, but I want more. I can’t find “enough” because in my view, there’s so much out there that I want…and what fun it is to get it this way, without work! Just…inviting them to gift me what I need or desire.
Me: Again, I feel like “food” is code for “spiritual assistance” or “helping others with what they want”?
Squirrel: Bingo! You already see through this in spiritual ways. What you don’t discern, though, is that the “true calling” for help is often just an illusion. People need much less than they give themselves credit for, and they need much help in remembering the symbiotic experience is also parasitic for some who are learning about need versus greed. See that rhyme? Need versus greed. I don’t NEED what I’m given, because your family feeds me enough to pad me out. I get my food everywhere, and I have little need to work for it. That’s the true essence of this insight…for you, me, and everyone who wants to know how some on Earth work. There’s little reason to say no to those who give and give, whether they think or know they’re giving something of value, or whether they think it’s not much to them so why not just give it away? There are some squirrels who really would want that which your family generously treats me to, but I go to them out of habit more than requirement. So do others in life who make it a point to go where the free handouts are.
Me: I’m sorry this dialogue turned out this way. I appreciate the insight but it feels a little…like it could’ve been given with some compassion or empathy? Does that make sense?
Squirrel: You tried your best to shift it and it’s still here, so…does that make sense to you?
Me: I guess it’s what was meant to come in today. Is that what you’re saying?
Squirrel: Bingo again, my friend! You didn’t do it “wrong” to hear it this way. It won’t resonate if it’s harsh to you, but in time you’ll forget the energy or insistence of my vibration, and it’ll feel more solid and acceptable to you. To anyone who wasn’t part of this exchange, they’ll take what they need from it and won’t worry about the delivery format, right? The gift is in what we brought forth, not in how it was observed. Because they only see what they want, it doesn’t matter much if it was harsh in your experience, as long as they got the point. Right?
Me: This was a little challenging, but applying my own kind nature will smooth it over. When I reread it, in time I believe your message will apply. Thank you for the gift, Squirrel. Be well.
Squirrel: I am God, you know. There’s nothing to fear. We all get what we need and what we’ve requested. The form is less important than you know, but it holds more magic this way. 😊
