5 More Lessons From The Animal Kingdom

by Jessie Klassen,

This article is a follow up to my previous article, “5 Important Lessons from the Animal Kingdom.”

As Nature has infinite wisdom and lessons for those who are listening, the list of lessons from the Animal Kingdom is an endless one, but these are several more of my most profound lessons from animal teachers.

5 More Lessons From The Animal Kingdom

1) “Always trust your Instincts”

This lesson was shared with me by a Lioness during dream state (as I am a dreamer, lol).  It was during a time when I was feeling very uneasy with someone who was becoming involved in my children’s lives, due to the fact that I am divorced and can’t always control who they are around.

I had no “logical” reason to not like this person, but something about them just felt “off.”  After weeks of trying to convince myself that I was just being paranoid, a Lioness visited me in a dream.  She was walking with me and my children, and she was coming close enough to rub against them and lick their hands.  My kids were at first a little uneasy about this, but I quickly assured them, “it’s ok, she’s here to protect you.”

I then heard her say as she looked at me, “always trust your instincts.”

When I awoke from that dream, I realized that my instincts had been right and I quickly took necessary steps to stop involvement of this particular person in my children’s lives.  Time has since proven that my instincts were indeed correct about this person, and I will not be doubting myself again.

Lionesses are fiercely protective of their young, and they know that they can trust their intuitions.

I am so grateful to the Lioness for giving me the confidence to do what I had to do to protect my “cubs.”

2) “We’re really not that different”

This next lesson came to me last winter through one of my dearest cows.  It was on a day where I was feeling particularly lost and confused.  It was my first calving season of being a vegetarian, and needless to say, I was quite at arms about my livelihood.  Everything I knew to be true in my life, and had previously identified with, was changing.

And on this particular day, I had been helping my family cut up meat, as once a year as a family we butcher our own steer so that we have healthy meat to last the year.

After feeling especially sad while cutting, I just had to get out of the meat shop.  Of all places, I felt called to walk out to the cattle pens where we keep our calving cows.  The sun was shining strong on this March day, so I just stood there facing it, soaking it up with my eyes closed, tears streaming down my hot cheeks.

Suddenly I heard this sweet voice say, “you know, we’re really not that different.”

When I opened my eyes and looked around, I seen one of our gentlest cows standing near me.  She was looking at me with such understanding in her eyes.  I cannot describe just how “human” her eyes looked, there was such an awareness within them.

I had never before heard one of our cows speak so directly to me, so I replied in my mind, “How are we not that different?”

She then showed me telepathically with a picture, how she enjoys soaking up the sun as well.  I could feel how warm the sun felt to her, and how comforting it is.  She showed me her favorite place to stand, which happened to be next to the pond that I grew up beside, near my parents’ house.  She showed me a picture of herself, standing on the banks in the summertime, a slight breeze blowing the bugs away, while the sun beat down upon her back.  I could feel her peacefulness and complete satisfaction with life in this perfect moment.

I said to her in my mind, “that’s one of my favorite places too.”  I then showed her pictures of myself playing on the banks as a child, and rafting on the water.

We stood together for a long time in this awareness and appreciation of one another, and in the knowing that we really are not that different.

I was deeply touched by her compassion for me and sympathy for my tears.  Her willingness to comfort and cheer me up.  I know that I must have stunk of the meat shop, and yet she was so understanding of my pain.

My cows have taught me so much about forgiveness and acceptance, and naturally, I hold a very special place in my heart for them.

3) “Who’s Song are You Singing?”

This lesson was shared with me last spring by one of the most iconic symbols of springtime and warm weather, the Robin.

Just like my lesson shared by my cow, this lesson came on a day when I was once again feeling out of sorts with my livelihood and was confused about what I should be doing with my life.

It was early morning, and I had just completed my cattle check.  I was on my drive home down our short winding road through an oak bluff.  It was here that a Robin decided to land on the road in front of me.  I stopped and the Robin stared at me.  I could feel his eyes looking into me.  After a few moments I could hear him say, “Who’s song are you singing?”

Then he flew up only to land a little ways ahead of me and again and stare at me.  This time I heard him say, “Are you singing your song, or is it still within you?”

The Robin looked at me a while longer before he flew up into the trees and began singing his lovely morning song for the rest of the world.

I sat there in my truck for a long while, unable to move.  The Robin had touched such a deep truth.  Until that point, I had never asked myself these questions.  My life was changing so quickly, and I was trying to fit in to what I used to be, instead of who I really was.

The Robin was right, I wasn’t singing my song.  At least not the song that was true to me now.  This song was still inside of me.  I hadn’t been using my voice because I was afraid that people wouldn’t like what I had to say, and that they would no longer accept me.  But the Robin does not worry about such things.  He has a song to sing, and so he sings it.  And he brightens the world because he does.

After this encounter, I knew that I had to start writing again, and that I had to share my writing with the world.  I am eternally grateful to the Robin for his wisdom.

4) “You still have work to do”

This lesson came by way of a rat, and I have to admit, as a born and raised farm girl, I’m ashamed of how freaked out I am by the sight of a rat.  I’m not talking hop on a chair and shriek, I’m talking paralyzed in terror and hyperventilating kind of freaked out.

I know, I know, how can someone so connected to Nature be freaked out by an animal?  I’ve asked myself this same question, many, many times.  I know that all animals have a purpose, and that none of them are “bad.”  And yet, the very sight of them evoked a response in me like nothing else, and worse yet, one that I couldn’t seem to control.  Especially on a farm, when you know that sooner or later, with all of the grain around that it is only a matter of time before you see a rat in a building somewhere.

It is true that anything that really bothers us in our surrounding world is simply reflecting something back at us that we are not at peace with within ourselves.

So essentially, anything that we are afraid of teaches us that we still have inner work to do.

So after noticing the signs of a rat in my chicken coop, and not wanting to have a panic attack every time I pick eggs, I decided to finally do a meditation specifically on my fear of rats.

In my meditation, I was shown that I had once been a prisoner in a previous life.  As a prisoner, I was locked up in deplorable conditions.  A dark, dirty jail with many other people.  We were filthy, sick, and the smell was so awful it turned my stomach.  And of course, there was also, as you may have guessed, rats.  They were everywhere.  Scurrying around us and running up the walls.  I realized then that the sight of rats was triggering a memory within my subconscious of a hellish experience.  No wonder I couldn’t keep it together!

I then did a healing of this life and this experience, and I thanked the Rat for revealing a part of my subconscious that I had not been aware of.

After this healing, I happened to see a rat one day in my barn.  And I didn’t freak out.  The sight of them still makes me uneasy, but I at least have some control.  As I stared at this rat that stared right back at me, I could hear him say, “don’t be afraid to make use of all of your gifts.”

I was floored.  Like the Robin, the Rat had struck a nerve.  I wasn’t using all of my “gifts” that I had been born with.  I was hiding some of them, afraid, once again, of not being accepted.

I am very grateful to the Rat for helping bring my gifts into the light that I had been stowing away in the darkness.

5) “Don’t take Life so Seriously”

This lesson was shared with me by the cheeky little squirrels who live in the oak bluff near my home.  I often walk the winding road through this oak bluff with my 2 dogs, Sidda and Chubs, as this road leads to our cattle pens, which also then leads to my parent’s home.

Every time we walk or drive this road, without fail, out of nowhere appears a little red squirrel, streaking across the road.  And every single time, without fail, Sidda and Chubs go chasing after them.  The squirrels seem to stay just far ahead enough of the dogs to avoid capture before they climb up into the safety of a tree.  And then they chatter back at the dogs, taunting and teasing.  One can’t help but laugh at the silliness of it all.

I have often thought that if the squirrels didn’t like being chased, then why do they always run out in front of us?

Squirrels tend to be a bit of a contradiction.  They work tirelessly collecting acorns to stow away for the winter, much more than they can ever use for themselves, and yet, they never miss an opportunity to take time out to play.  They can also be seen chasing one another from limb to limb.

One day after Sidda and Chubs had once again successfully chased a squirrel up a tree, I could hear her chatter at me, “don’t take life so seriously.”

I couldn’t help but smile, because I had at the time, been taking life too seriously and was in a bit of a “funk.”

I realized that if a squirrel who works tirelessly in preparation for winter can still take time out and play, than why can’t I?  They seem to have an ability to keep life fun and light, and are wonderful examples of how to keep our inner child alive.  They encourage us to enjoy what we do, and if we are not, than perhaps we need to change what we do or change our perspective.  Just as they enjoy running on the ground as well as soaring high above in the tree limbs, it is also beneficial for us to get a “higher” perspective of our lives as well.

Nature has a way of guiding us with exactly what we need when we need it.  All we have to do is be aware of the wisdom that is around us and available at all times.
