“They are cute only because you make them that way! Otherwise they would just be animals!”
Sometimes I get surprising responses on my Facebook videos, the ones where I talk for my animal friends. Although, Alfred’s just a cow, steer actually, doing normal bovine behavior, I give a creative vocal expression to his antics. Some people may be fooled into thinking that I’m channeling for him, but I’m not. I don’t actually know what Alfred is thinking. But, I argue, that I’ve gotten to know my steer pretty well and so my guesses might be so accurate that it would give the appearance of channeling.
I really wish I could communicate with my animal friends, and perhaps I do, at times, without knowing it. Alfred is so easy to understand. I’ve been his momma since he was a week old, so we’ve bonded. He knows his name, he comes when I call, unless he’s busy with something more interesting, but usually, he comes. He’s not complicated, like the horse. He enjoys hay and grasses. He likes to be scratched, all over, especially with the rake. He likes to have bedding to lay down on when resting and chewing his cud and he enjoys a meandering walk and things to play with, like the tire swing. He also likes to have herd mates, like the goats and perhaps even Bella the horse. All the things he likes, I provide for him, so he likes me.
Some people may be confused when I speak through my animal friends as if they are capable of feeling joy, surprise, fear or anger, as they perhaps haven’t had an experience with an animal that has opened their hearts, like I have. When I talk for Alfred, it’s me, being playfully creative with another of God’s creatures, that I happen to know really well.
At Crow Moon Healing Bed and Breakfast, we are open to the belief that animals have feelings and that we have an opportunity to open our hearts to connect and possibly communicate with them.
At this time we are wanting to assist in flattening the curve so we are limiting our hosting to one individual or related couple at a time. We have one space available, which is separate from the main living area. The "Garden Level" has a spacious bedroom with a queen-sized bed, full bathroom, sitting area, eating area, and full kitchen. We are hosting those who need a getaway or a quiet space to stay while traveling. Crow Moon Healing cleans all counters, light switches, doorknobs, bathroom and kitchen with disinfectants. Breakfasts are made in advance and put in the "Garden Level" fridge to support limited contact. Masks are worn as you enter and leave the home but can be removed once you are in the rented space.
