Hi Wild Ones!

I'm Kim! My wife and I have been together for 7 years, married for 4 and together we have 7 babies...2 dogs and 5 cats! I began my spiritual journey in roughly 2007, the year my beloved grandmother passed. She was the only grandparent I really got to know. Though she was a talented artist and quite religious, she ALWAYS taught from a place of love and light.

I've felt lost for years, ever moving on this winding path, sometimes feeling like my wheels were stuck in the mud. But I was still chugging along just trying to get by. Then, the pieces started to come together. Sense was made of my childhood experiences, healing and forgiveness was able to enter my shadows, and astronomical growth was made. I've devoured spiritual books, watched an millennia worth of YouTube videos, searched within myself, and consulted with my spiritual team...and here I am.

Yesterday's Pick-a-card tarot reading video is what jolted me into the next phase of action. The thumbnail screamed at me. The video was a big ol’ finger wagging in my face. So…I got my homemade oracle cards, and Spirit and I talked it out…then I got started typing.

I’m excited and grateful for this forum! Thank you, Bernadette and Grasshopper, for providing this safe space for us all!
Beautiful share ~ feeling the authenticity, vulnerability, transparency + ... thank you and love beyond to you and all around you.

Hi! I'm here! LOL Anyway, I have many names as in LKBuie on youtube, but my real name is Linda. Kenzie was a nickname when I had a terrible traumatizing job and now I don't love it, but it is also in my email address, so I'm keeping it for now. I love this Animal Allies thing as I have been doing that my whole life, by leaning on animals that turn up in some way during times of stress. I bought the Ark card deck a while ago, and now I am hitting it up a bit because I am trying to deal with an extra layer of stress as I get ready for a load of grief that is coming soon. I look after my mother who is in home hospice. I have a 13-year-old German Shepherd who is my best buddy and is starting to lose the use of his back legs. He is 85 lbs to my 115 lbs, so when he can no longer get around I will be having to make the decision to euthanize him. I already hurt about the loss of my mom and my best friend, but I am also trying very hard to stay in the now and enjoy them because they are not gone yet. Meanwhile, I have to do things to get ready like making arrangements for my mom (done and paid for last week) and getting Creed to a better (hopefully) vet who will help me plan for his gentle ending in the same way that hospice is helping me with my mom. I have been staying with my mom for over a year now and we have learned to get along. Before that I was a newly retired nomad who lived in an RV with two cats and a dog. It was an abrupt change, but with meditation and journaling I found my way to peace within what had felt like a jail sentence with an unknown release date. Now I am doing much better at going with the flow. Trying to feel all the feelings that arise and accepting them and releasing them gently.

This brings me to my Animal Allies. As a child growing up in Florida, like you Bernadette, I had many encounters with dolphins. I chose dolphin long long ago to be my favorite animal and I identify with dolphin spirit very strongly. I am a Gemini and I heard you say in one of your live chats that Dolphin is a beast of the air as well as the water. Love that. So that was an easy choice. I think that dolphin is here to help me with energy and spirit and joy when I need that. I swim in the Gulf as often as I can and find that amazingly soothing in times of great stress. I am looking to further define him/her and find a name. After the dolphin, and also at a very early age, I felt a very strong attraction to exotic cats, and the tiger was always a favorite. When I was suffering the most from the abrupt change from my nomadic lifestyle to living with my mother, a tiger dream came to me and it was life changing. Since then, I have felt that there is a powerful and strong force inside me to call upon. My traumatizing job was as a Zookeeper where I had a relationship with a cranky but beautiful tiger, so I have named her after this real tiger. She is Basha. I love her soooo much because she gives me courage. The third animal was harder to find, but I went through the Ark deck and brought out six other animals that spoke to me and then I went to sleep. I woke up knowing it was lion because I am all about being a mother to my mother and protecting her and it feels very right to have the strength of a lion to back me up now. I think I need it. I wonder if I am making sense???? Anyway, Bernadette, I have scheduled a session with you for a week from today (Saturday the 17th) because I want to further define my spirit/totem and power animals and have them with me when I need them.

AND I would like to get a new astrological chart done for what is going on in my life now. Maybe a solar return??? Does anyone who is reading this know of a good source?
I am not an expert in astrology, but I will share a thought with you. I think of signs as background music. They set a tone, but what happens in the foreground can shift and change outside of that tone.

I did not understand your [Trish Telesco] response /s to Linda Buie's message / messages.

Well wishes, all around.

I am a Pisces. There are certain underlying themes associated with the Pisces traits. I call that the background music. It plays on, but so does life and uniquely personal situations. People will say, well you're not like a typical Pisces because of X in this house and Y in that house (or whatever). This comment downplays the role of personal experience and perspective.

The same holds true with symbolism. Take Apple. the saying goes, "an apple a day keeps the doctor away." For the person who got hit on the head while apple picking - the doctor was NOT kept away (lol)

I am a nature-nurture kinda gal. While I may be part stardust, I do not think the stars rule my every waking and sleeping moment.

Thanks for expanding and explaining. Making more sense to me. :)

Big hugs Linda! My heart is with you while you walk this journey to the otherside with your mom. I am so glad you have in home hospice. My experience with it was wonderful. It is beautiful that you are walking with your spirit animals during this transition. Isn't it wonderful that they always show up when we need them most? I am so excited for you! You get to have a reading with Bernadette! That is fabulous! I have no doubt she will give you the guidance you need.

Please know you are not alone. Big hugs!

Hello Wild Ones,

My name is Mark "Ravenheart." (Ravenheart is an old screen name that I used years ago when I was the moderator of a paranormal website. I have kind of "outgrown" the name and I am more well known in certain healing circles as "Lionheart" or simply as "lion" but my email contains the old name so I opted to keep it to avoid confusion). I was born under the sign of Wolf, so you may see my name appear with a wolf avatar.

I am a Pisces native/Saggatarius rising and moon. I am an intuitive Clairsentient Empath, an INFJ (I have a rare personality like 2% of the population), I'm a highly "Sensitive" person, a Precognitive Dreamer, and a Trauma Survivor. But I am not a tarot reader, at least not yet. hahaha. I have seldom read for anyone other than myself and when I did, I didn't charge a fee. I had a reader look at my natal chart once and she told me that I am a psychic healer, but I am still learning about that. I guess if you mean using the mind to heal, in that sense I might possibly be.

I don't usually include the sad news that I am a trauma survivor, but in this instance, I need to share a bit of my story and some of that story is sad...

When I was young I experienced trauma, (actually multiple traumas). Once when it was occurring, I could hear birds singing outside of the window. To my mind, these were ravens, crows, and blackbirds. I left my body and "flew away" with them. This was the first time I was protected from danger. Thus the name 'Ravenheart'. I later learned that to an African Tribal tradition, (Yoruba), "Raven" was thought to be the 'protector of the child spirit.' A type of spiritual guardian.

For the longest time, I have believed that all animals have the potential to be a spirit guide, totem, and/or a magickal ally, etc.
On my family shield or crest, there is the head of a large cat, specifically a Leopard, and for me, it is a family totem animal. I believe I have many totem animals, power animals, and spirit animals.

My baby sister passed thru the veil about 2 and a half years ago. Losing her broke my heart. I am the sole survivor, all the members of my immediate family have transitioned. During the past 3 years, I lost my mom, my baby sister, and my younger brother. My dad passed on Winter solstice, 2012.

So for the past couple of years, I have just been floundering around, ...kinda going at life half-heartedly, ........grieving, etc...and when I saw the Ark Deck I knew I had to begin to explore it. I need to reconnect with all of my power animal allies and totemic energies and begin a new chapter in my life....so that is what brought me here...A desire for a new life or chapter of life, a strong attachment to nature and animals, as well as a fondness for the Ark and mama bear.

Long may you run (fly, crawl, jump, scamper, etc.)
RH
Truly sorry for your losses ❤️ Extremely thankful you have survived the grief and the trauma. You have a beautiful way about you and I am thrilled that the animals are calling to you. I have a feeling that this is just the beginning of a beautiful journey for you. May you find what you are searching for!

Hi @Earthwyz I apologize for the delay in answering you. I had an appointment out of town at my cardiologist's office.

Thank you so much for your condolences. As far as surviving the grief and trauma, it has been intense but I have been very fortunate. Plus I have been in therapy/counseling for 21 years. So even tho I still struggle with PTSD and there is no cure for it, still, I have learned to manage it. The grief, however, will never end, it is the price we pay for love, I suppose.

Thank you for the compliment, I am flattered. As an empath, I have always loved animals and I was once a practicing Wiccan so that is how I learned about spirit animals and totemic energies. The animal spirits are calling to me rather loudly this time around and I often have them appear in my dreams as well as in my everyday waking life. Raven saved my tail once when I was younger and I really enjoy learning to work with animal spirits as magickal allies.

I am overdue for a beautiful journey and I am happy that you and the wild pack are going to be a part of it.

I'm wishing many bright blessings for you,

Mark

Hi to all. I'm Rose, 34 from Colchester Essex. I've found you all through the animal site as well. Was looking up dreams about bees then saw the link. I've been on the journey since i was 16 years old, had my first awakening then and opened up to the clairaudience and clairvoyance gift at the same time, remotely. I do hear spirit and consciously work with animals. I am a keen animal friend and healer as well with reiki, just been attuned. I love to help and be of service to where I can be of help. Lately I've been down in a funk, rut, so i'm looking to network and meet new people/friends of a feather that can grow together.

Namaste, Beautiful Soul!

Let's see what kind of magic we can make together!

Tell us a little bit about yourself and what you're seeking.

I'll start...

Y'all will never know how long it took me to figure out how to introduce myself. LOL Really, I'm a pretty simple gal. If you know anything about Bears, you know about me. I love to hide away in my cave (Scorpio), have a sugar addiction, have the most fun paddlin' 'round in some water, and there's a reason I'm called Mama Bear. ;)

My hobbies include pretending I'm going to start all my art projects one day, talking to spirits who've crossed over, changing the world so it's better for all living things, and seeking the perfect Chai.

SO much love to you all! Thank you for being here! Let me know if I may be of service or let you know about my latest adventure at Publix.

I'm Raven. I found Bernadette Bear and Wild Pack through another shaman friend. Currently I'm exploring shamanism and herbalism and tarot. All these things were not talked about in my family looking back it was mostly trauma that brought us together even weddings and birthdays there was always some kind of chaos. Because we didn't choose that path of BS we got labeled black sheep. Insert shadows here.. people pleasing, abandonment, daddy issues, too sensitive too unique blahhh. I have a good sense of my inution but I'm just forming a relationship with my guides and ancestors and animals. They say they're ready to assist me and I have to step into that. The Arch is amazing! Instantly I felt a respect and natural composed energy of the cards. TY Soul Stars for your words of guidance and wisdom and OmL the LOVE y'all. So much Love xoxo ❤️🪶🌈

Hi Y'all
Jai GuruDev
my name is Surya Ann
always feel weird introducing myself ... i have been a reiki and shamballah master for years. have done some soul retrieval and past life work. have worked with tarot in the past, but not as my main tool. i guess i would call myself an empathic intuitive. i've worked with horses (strong empathic connection) and dogs mostly and some birds ... and people.
since young, i've had a much closer connection with animals over people. although i think as an empath, i can feel everyone's everything. so being with or around animals has been a much safer and quieter place.

for some years, until sort of recently, i had "stuffed" myself down and not done any intuitive or energy work. and am now "re-emerging" as i recognize it is who i am, and can not be happy just trying to tow the "normal" line.
since being young (which i am not so much any more - well over the 1/2 century mark) i have had this connection to the Ark. that has a story unto itself, so i will move along. but needless to say, your Ark grabbed my attention as i was getting back into bringing tarot/cards back into my life.

although i've had the deck and oracle cards for a while, i've only recently started tuning in to your live sessions.
i really appreciate you, Bernadette and the work you are doing, and look forward to seeing where this is all leading.
feels pretty big 🖤🐾

thank you
