A HUGE thank you to everyone who supported our SARA Fundraiser 🙂 We surpassed our goals for both shirts!
For our classic design, we sold 277 shirts – our goal was 200, so this was amazing! This means SARA raised $2,730.92!
For our kitty love design, we sold 147 shirts – our goal was 100, so this also was also way over! This means SARA raised $1,422.71!
The pandemic has been a difficult time for SARA financially, just like so many other nonprofits – these funds are critically needed to help us continue our important work of bringing love and light to shelter and sanctuary animals in organizations all over the world. Without you, we couldn’t do the work that we do, and we are so grateful to belong to such a compassionate and supportive community!!!!
Today I want to also share an encouraging message to any of you who may be going through hard times right now: Turn to your practice, with the support of animals, to help get you through!
One of the most important gifts of the Let Animals Lead® method practice is a healing transformation of our energy. The things that we might have considered to be our greatest weaknesses, or the suffering that we wish we never had to experience — these things, through the power of our meditation practice, can become our superpowers.
One example in my case is my lifelong battle with severe anxiety disorder. Through experiencing the pain and fear of this, I am truly able to understand and empathize with the fear in abused or traumatized animals at a deeper level than most people … and more importantly, through experiencing the healing power of my practice to lift the burden of this from my life, I fully realize and trust the power of Animal Reiki to completely ease this suffering and bring deep, lasting peace and healing.
It’s good to remember that our own difficulties and trials are the path to a deeper compassion and mindfulness towards others. Even if we can’t see it in this moment, just know that every challenge has meaning for your journey.
Experiencing these losses and pain will help us ultimately to be of better service to the animals who need us the most, and the people who love them 🙂 If you are going through something hard right now, know that you are not alone, may you be embraced by the peace of Animal Reiki, and may you feel your burden lightening each and every day!
Stay safe, be well and may the animals light your way,
