Q&A: LOA Savvy Help for Animal Activists
Here’s the question:
I love animals. On my journey I have become increasingly sensitive to the global plight of animals and seem to acutely feel their collective pain, which, at times, has felt intolerable.
I have found it difficult to keep centred and focused on that which makes me feel good because the UAE is rather behind when it comes to animal welfare and there is always some horror story circulating the social networks, etc.
In the last week I experienced an epiphany to adopt a vegetarian lifestyle. (I guess its somewhere between veggie and vegan, because I still eat organic free range eggs, but it will also involve working my way through all aspects of my life, from clothing to cosmetics and toiletries.)
Perhaps this ‘shift’ has attracted others into my life now of the same vibration but I’m feeling pressured by them into looking at and circulating horror stories from around the world of animal cruelty in its various forms.
I feel confused, Jeannette; when I tried to explain where I was coming from I was told that change will only happen by taking action.
But how can I effect the changes I would love to see in the world of animals if my action is coming from a place of feeling really bad about what I’m focused upon?
How can we help this dire situation with our animal friends without feeling completely awful about it and lowering our vibration?
Abraham has always taught us that there’s no way we can lower our vibration enough to make others better. They have taught us that there is nothing more important than that we feel good. My ‘inspired action’ to adopt a veggie lifestyle felt good. It made me feel that I was taking positive steps for myself and my animal friends in a positive way. How do we explain where we’re coming from to others who think it’s just a cop out?
This is Jeannette again, and I’ve got three questions from this I’d love you guys to field:
- how can an LOA savvy person best support positive change for animals on the planet (or any cause we feel passionate about) and
- what do we do about the negative focus on the issues that matter dearly to us, and
- how do we handle our activist friends who think we should do more than just focus on what feels good and take inspired action?
Please share your thoughts! This subject has been (and continues to be) a deal for me as well. Which is why I’m calling in you guys, the Big Guns. Thank you!
