‘The Spirits All Showed Up In My Backyard’ 11″ x 15″ Acrylic paint on paper By Christine Kowal
I walked out my side door and my back yard was filled with spirits. It was a rainy morning, and a group of them were huddled in and around and the gazebo. This was a first for me. I didn’t really know what to do. It was a bit shocking and a bit exciting, so I just asked them what they wanted? I figured they’d found me or rather God had sent them my way so they’d found me for a reason.
And by the way, if it wasn’t God Love Light Jesus Christ the Holy Spirit that had directed them my way, they weren’t staying.
Apparently they had some unfinished business. They wanted me to do something for them. It was very simple, I can’t remember what it was now. Anyway first I asked God if this was alright since my experience with spirits on their way home to God up to this point had always been one on one. And he said yes it was fine. I had to get in my car and go to the shopping mall next door to deliver what ever message it was and by the time I got home they were all gone.

Why am I telling you this weird story right now. Well life is kinda weird right now. It’s certainly very weird for me or has been, I’m starting to understand that I have to shift gears. The life I had once imagined for myself is going to be very different. The world has changed and is changing. And at first I was terrified.
I read The New Testament and Eckhart Tolle one after the other. The Bible is a living document that speaks to me and teaches me about Jesus and how to live through him. Eckhart Tolle’s book teaches me how to go deeper and understand how to listen to The Kingdom of Heaven Within that Jesus left inside of me and everyone else.
When I can put myself into that place of presence, into the now, take myself out of my mind and all of the things that have happened and everything that might happen and focus on The Kingdom of Heaven Within me, the all knowing Consciousness within, the Holy Spirit, your word, I can feel the stillness and I know I’ll get there from here, where ever there might be.
This is my friend Zalman after his physical body died he/ his spirit is going down a big orange corridor with a big bright yellow white light at the end. Change is hard for me. I like a certain amount of stability or constancy in my life. I will also say I was not always this way. I use to love a great adventure. So I guess this is not our choice we are all on this Great Adventure together. I am finding the key for me is I to believe and have faith and I practice being present and living from The Kingdom of God Within, Consciousness, your word.

Although this kitty looks like she’s almost done. She actually got a few more staples and stayed up for quite a while longer.Â The Animals Believe and have Faith. I get a lot of my strength from my Animal Family.
These are my two books:
‘The Bible’ Â NIV Â New International Version
‘The Power Of Now’ Â By Eckhart Tolle
There is a reason that the world is the way it is right now. Â I don’t know why that is only God knows. But what I do know is that we’ve gotten off track, I’ve gotten off track. And I’m working very hard to listen to that still small voice inside of me now and in each moment and live on track.Â
I was driving home from the chiropractors and all of a sudden the road disappeared. I mean was still on it and when I looked down I could see it. But now I was driving through the clouds and they were blue and gold and purple copper and crimson and I was right in the middle of them. And they were luscious and bumpy and everywhere.
The road was gone although when I looked down it was still there but I didn’t seem to be on it anymore just following it in the clouds. I have moments like this and have had moments like this in my life where the world becomes extraordinary. I know that that’s really what the world looks like, Extraordinary.
Everyone experiences the Extraordinary in what ever way that means to you. A moment, a deep understanding, deeper than you’ve ever gone before. And I believe that means we’ve found that still small voice inside of us, God, Consciousness, your word and we’re experiencing life from that place, that place where life is meant to be lived from.
That’s how the Animals see the world. Sometimes when I’m out with my dogs I catch a glimpse of what they’re seeing. They’re looking at Everything from that unadulterated, pure still space within. No filters, no ego, God, Light Love Universe, Creator, the Holy Spirit, Consciousness from within.
‘Tanya’s Father, a long haired Collie with Tanya’s mother a silver Wolf’ Mixed media on paper By Christine Kowal
This is a very old drawing. I was living in Kingston at the time. I’d gone to Queen’s and was now getting ready to head back to Toronto to become an artist and live in a rented nasty old warehouse studio with Tanya, my wolfie dog who was going to keep me safe. And she Always did.
When we moved to Toronto I started drawing out Tanya’s and my life together. I was working on a picture book. About half way through I realized the book would have to wait a lot of years until I understood a lot more. Back then I hadn’t realized how beautiful Tanya’s world really was. We’re working on the book now, but with words and pictures.
So here I am with Caleb, Tanya’s spirit returned as Caleb. We’re all working on the book together, Shannon (Star/Tara) and Cheaky (Zeus/Tyrone/Buttons) and Gwenyvere (Fluffy). Bracketed names are spirit returning. As I’ve said before Animal turnaround times are fast. Life truly is Extraordinary, I want to live it, all of it, from that place, God, Light, Love, Universe, Creator, Consciousness, the Holy spirit, Inside.
I did sessions for 10 years solving peoples Pet Problems, Gentle Training, my business was called ‘The Pet Generation. And then 10 years working with people releasing blocks first as The Truth Whisperer and then as The Heart Energy Program in Toronto. All I was really doing was listening to God, your word inside and teaching people how to access their own stillness within. But God told me I had to stop because I had to learn more before I could continue my work. And I moved out here and Jesus took my hand as I was coming home from church one Sunday, he just reached out from the clouds and took my hand as I was driving VroomVroom (my car) home and I started to weep because I felt my insides become whole again. Something I had not felt since I was a child.
The other place I was guidedto was Oprah and Eckhart’s webinar from Eckhart Tolle’s book ‘A New Earth. And also Eckhart Tolle’s ‘The Power of Now’ Removing ego and living from the power within in every moment of your life. When I’m looking for information one of the things I do is ask God the question and sometimes he sends me to Youtube. Thank you Youtube.
I will be doing sessions again soon. ButÂ if you have a question you can email meÂ and I willÂ answer it either here or I will answer it on my Youtube channel and post a link.Â When you ask a question out loud you are asking about something that others also need to hear.
Love and LightÂ Christine and The Animals Tara,Â Fire And Tanya
