The Dream ~ The Message ~ The Animal Kingdom


The Dream

I had a dream that I was standing beside a huge body of water. It was not familiar to me. The whole dream was in a sepia sort of muddy color. There were other people there. As some of them were about to go into the water others yelled out “Don’t go in the water it is toxic.” As soon as that happened it seemed as if I could see way further than I should be able to. I could see way, way out into the water. And there I could see all these gigantic animals of all kinds swimming away in single file. The next thing I knew I was in the water in line with the animals swimming with the whales. And now a dolphin came up on my right side and turned on her back and looked as if she was smiling at me. She began to swim round and round me over and under my legs. At this point I woke up because my dog was crying to go outside.

This was one of those big dreams that you know are very important. The dream stayed with me. I knew there was a message. The next day I had an appointment with a new doctor I had only seen once. He was not very friendly and in fact was rather cold and stern. I was not feeling well at all and wishing I did not have to go but I had to be seen to renew my medication. I was so dizzy that my husband had to drive me and I was just feeling so annoyed that I had to see this doctor again and thinking that I will have to look for another doctor since he is definitely not for me.

I sat in the waiting room just hoping to get this all over with quickly when the doctor came walking out in his regular clothes. I was the only patient in the waiting room. He looked over at me and gave me a big smile and said hello. I was so taken back by his friendliness and his coming out to say hello I said jokingly “Am I going to have my appointment here in the waiting room?” He said “No.” Then he said “Do you like dogs”? I said “Yes I love dogs.” Then he said “Would you like to meet my dog”? I was thinking he must have just gotten a new puppy and brought the dog to work. Now he leaves the room and comes walking back out with the most beautiful Great Dane.

There is no way for me to describe what went on next. I bent down and this beautiful gigantic animal looked me in my eyes and it was like the whole room and the doctor just disappeared. I don’t know how long this went on but I never stopped talking to this amazing creature, telling him how happy I was to meet him and how beautiful he was. His name was Hudson. He never moved. He never broke our gaze. We fell instantly in love.

When the doctor finally tried to get Hudson to come with him he would not budge. He wanted to stay with me. So here I was dizzy and disoriented from the episode I was having that day and having this incredible experience. By the time I saw the doctor for my appointment we had both been changed. Something there is no explanation for had happened. I call it divine intervention.

My husband was waiting in the car unsure on how this second visit was going to go knowing I was so apprehensive about it. I gave a thumbs up as I walked towards the car. I got in and burst into tears. I said “You wont believe what happened. The dream of the gigantic animals manifested in the doctors office.”

What are the chances that you have a dream that all the gigantic animals on the planet are swimming together and the next day your previously unfriendly doctor introduces you to his dog and he is a gigantic Great Dane.

There is a second mini miracle concerning my health, this doctor and my medication. Let’s just say that everything that happened in my last visit completely turned around with this visit.

And so I came home and all the events were swirling in my head, the dream, the doctor, Hudson and the message. Some of the message is personal but some is meant to be shared.

The Message

The animals as they are so called here are calling out, reaching out from every realm. Their presence and size in the water as well as yours is significant. Huge beings from all over the planet swimming with their hearts in unity yet single file as to represent our unique individuality in what we do and why we are here. We work collectively and individually just as you do.

We called out to you in a dream yet the dream itself is a place of great power where many things are created and worked upon, worked out.

Our heads above water, bodies swimming with strength and courage and intention. A symphony of beings creating a sound, a tone in the uninhabitable waters. Each movement of our legs sending out a vibration and tone of healing and restoration. Your presence needed to add your own special vibration and your own knowing that we are one and belong together.

Once you were called upon as the manatee represented us all. (I once had two manatee come to me when I was swimming in the Gulf) You can read that story here. You joined us then and you join us now as you have always been one with the Animal Kingdom.

The color shall return to the dream when your world has moved into a place of love and compassion for all.

Our water parade was in honor of the two magnificents Tilikum and Granny (when I had this dream these two magnificent whales had just passed) who have ascended and shall be aiding in an even higher capacity than before.

Each animal has it’s own tone representing their unique individual name. The names given here by man have some aspect of the tone as to keep a certain harmonic resonance. This is of great importance. However the giving of the name in most cases is without deep thought and contemplation or revelation. So we must impress it upon those who are not awakened enough to do so. This is the same as the way a human is named.

The closest thing to earthy understanding of what the name for the Animal Kingdom is (I kept hearing the song They Call The Wind Mariah) Ma – Ri – A.

You are awakened to know and understand the connection between the dolphin, the manatee, the whales and the species named dog. He is so named not by accident for a body of water which is close to your heart and your home. (Hudson River)

The dolphin transmitted joy and playfulness to you even though you were immersed in toxic water. However you were among those you love. (they showed me the parallel of my life with what I deal with with my health but surrounded by my loved ones)

Hudson transmitted the love and power and beauty of the entire Kingdom through his eyes. All the Beloveds you have cared for and loved upon the earth lovingly present in the water and were also seen and felt through the eyes of Hudson.

Hudson is a Healer. An old soul. He came to fill the doctor with compassion for those who come to him suffering. You will continue to receive healing from Hudson through the doctor. You have been together before. The meeting was a reunion. The doctor was impressed to bring Hudson in so that this meeting would take place.

Another synchronicity – My daughter remembered that my mother lived on Hudson Avenue.

I was then given some personal information about my work with Cosmic Photography.

Bring forth the light being photographs.

We are all one.

We will aid you in your next step.

We imbue the photographs with our energies. They are for healing purposes and for the expansion of consciousness.

Those who need to be present to them shall be.

Open your heart there is more to come.

One of the last things they wanted to impress upon us is this.

Over coming fear increases spiritual power.

The overall message I was receiving as I was writing this transmission was, we must work together, overcome our fears of immersing ourselves into things we are afraid of and be aware of the power the diversity of the collective has when working as one. These are not new ideas of course but how beautiful that the animal kingdom is coming forward at this time to show us they are working with us and that dimensions are merging in an effort to create the unity we must have to not only survive but to flourish.

I am deeply grateful for this beautiful experience and for the message from the Ma – Ri – A. They wanted their message to be shared and I am honored to do so.

Manatee Message


Last night before I went to bed I happened upon a horrific article about the State of Emergency in Florida due to the toxic algae covering the lakes and beaches of the East Coast of Florida. This is a man made atrocity.   As I watched the video a manatee was struggling to breathe as she tried to raise her head above this disgusting travesty. I cried myself to sleep.


In honor of all life and my beautiful encounter several years ago with these incredible beings I share their message which was given during the Gulf oil spill.  We have learned nothing.

Autumn Equinox

On the eve of the fall equinox they came, two huge magnificent beings of the sea. One raised just the top of her head slightly out of the water right next to me. It was shocking and frightening at first. I did not know what it could be. We backed slowly out of the water and tried to imagine what kind of creature could be swimming right next to me. Then we began to see two huge dark areas right next to us and something brushed against my leg. Now this was really quite frightening and unknown. We continued backing away. We were compelled however to try to see what it was we were encountering. Finally we realized there were two huge manatees doing everything they could to get our attention.

In a moment we went from fear to excitement and delight. We now called to them and invited them closer. One of them swam right up to us and raised her head out of the water. It was an incredible moment. She was beckoning us to engage with her and upon her invitation we spoke to her and gently touched her head.

This encounter went on for a very long time. It was a merging of worlds, a communion of beings. It was magic. The dolphins had been with us since we arrived for our swim and now the manatees had joined the magnificent procession. These gigantic gentle beings sent out their energy of welcome and love. We felt deeply honored and filled with joy.

They would swim a bit away and then surface with their heads together. They frolicked and raised their huge bodies and tails out of the water. We gasped with joy at each and every move they made. They were engaged in a beautiful dance of love and they allowed us to be a part of this incredible happening.

I felt that each and every part of this encounter was purposeful and knew they had come with a message. There was great meaning in all we were witnessing and they were determined to not only be seen but to be touched. I cannot begin to explain the feeling of this unexpected and unusual meeting and sharing. It was heart opening and brings tears to my eyes as I write this.

I have always felt at one with the sea. One of the reasons I love it so is the knowing that I am swimming with all the beloveds of the sea and sharing in all those energies of love and freedom and wisdom. As the sun set and the moon rose on the eve of the fall equinox, and the manatees continued their dance, the dolphins glided gracefully by and the birds filled the sky. With deepest gratitude and love I share the message the beautiful manatees have come to give.

Message from the Manatees

We come to you with a message of love. We come to you with a message of thanks. We were directed by the Council of The Sea to join with you at this incredibly important and significant time. We recognize and honor the two who come to the sea with such deep connection and love. We have seen and felt your light. We invited you to the dance. We presented the unexpected and the unknown. You backed away for fear of what may be presenting itself from the depths of the unknown. Fear rose to the surface but deep in your hearts you felt the pull, for love and expansion, communion and transcendence were calling you home.

You welcomed us. You stepped forward, out of fear and into the unknown. It was exhilarating and magical, for the power of an open heart shall always show the way out of fear and into the light. And conquering your fear shall lead you to an expansion of consciousness and communication with many more realms and beings of light. This shall continue to be part of your experience and transcendence.

A message of thanks goes out to your community for your waves of love and dedication to the sea. Your open hearts radiating healing light across the land and out into the sea, healing the waters with an alchemical dispersant of love.

Your radiant heart lights, penetrating the crystal sands and merging with the power of the sun and creating the ultraviolet light of transformation.

We feel you. We thank you. We love you.

Our hearts and worlds merge as one, as in unity we communicate through this open dialogue of loving intention.

You felt our anguish. You answered the call.

The Council of The Sea issued a proclamation that more and more shall these loving encounters take place. More and more shall we feel one another and remember one another.

The opening of The Universal Heart has been magnified by your own heart light, your transcendent crystal sands and the mighty power of the heart of the sun. For in unity we have come together, those of the land and those of the sea.

All forms of water beings, from the depths of the sea, from the springs and the lakes, from the rivers and streams call forth that balance be returned to the earth.

We come with this message of balance as the balance of the fall equinox is upon us.

We come with this message of unity and thanks as we wish to acknowledge all that is being done in the name or restoring balance to the earth.

As your healing thoughts and prayers and ceremonies have created the alchemy to heal and balance the waters, we wish to acknowledge that major shifts are occurring not only in the sea but everywhere.

May the healing waters and the beloveds of the sea nurture you as you have nurtured us through these unsettling days and may you know that what you do is transforming and transcending all.
