We’ve all been worried about the sixty pilot whales in Loch Carnan, and were afraid that they intended to beach themselves and die. I thought I would ask the whale consciousness about what was happening and about the potential for all the whales to die up in the Hebrides.
The first problem was that I attached the emotion of sadness to the idea of whales dying. The whale consciousness just told me “It’s normal for whales to do this and die. Whales die.” (Unsaid was “why are you having trouble accepting that whales die?”) So I had to take on board once again, as I’ve been here before with other animals, that they are not emotional about death, their own or others. Death is normal and it happens to every living thing. Why be sad or afraid of dying?
I said that there were a lot of people aware that the whales might die, and that we were all sorry that it might happen because we loved whales. Into the conversation the light grew and spread, as the whale consciousness accepted the truth that some humans loved whales at the same time that others hunted them to extinction. We parted on friendly terms, but I knew that our conversation would have no bearing on the whales in Loch Carnan. I read today they swam out, leaving one diseased, dead female whale behind.
When I wrote Extreme Weather by Archangel Uriel (http://www.candacecaddick.com/2011/05/extreme-weather/) I could see that the whales were terribly important to the health of the ocean, but it was difficult to know how to phrase it while Uriel was dictating the piece.
Animals accept death without emotion, and we are saddened and frightened by it. Some believed that yesterday was supposed to be the end of the world and the Rapture was to take place at 6 p.m. worldwide in a rolling wave of devastation. Those heading for heaven would not die but take their physical bodies with them. How terrified of death are they?
