Lady’s Force Field


This is a photo that Scott took of Lady on her way to dinner last night. We have taken A LOT of elephant photos over the past decades, and this is a first. Scott loves the picture and talked about Lady having a forcefield around her.

Last night, in a dream, I was looking for a necklace for my sister and was brought to the side and shown one that was of a rising phoenix. The chain looked like inch-wide fabric but was woven metal that was completely smooth. Its beauty was breathtaking: the colors were gorgeous, it was crafted meticulously, and the texture was like silk. The Native American man who had made it said they don’t allow people to touch this special piece because of the energy people put into it. Then he laid it in my hands so I could hold it. I woke up shortly after, and Lady was my immediate thought.

We often have concerns over Lady and look at much of what she does with somewhat of an analytical eye. It’s part of our job. We have to gauge her comfort and decide how to move forward, what to change, what needs to be addressed. But we also look at her through loving and empathetic eyes. She has had a harder time than some with trust and confidence and needs extra support at times. These two things (the photo and the dream) helped serve as a reminder to Scott and myself that no matter what happens, Lady is good. There is an undeniable inner strength there. After all she has been through, she has risen up and moved forward with grace, where many beings would have faltered. Her resilience is astounding, and although it can be habitual to look at her with concern, she is tougher than all of us put together.

Sometimes the world sends you reminders when you need them, and we’ll take this as one of them. Although some people may not understand this post at all (and that’s ok), we also feel there are some supporters out there who may also appreciate the reminder that Lady, against all odds, is flourishing at the sanctuary. It may be in her own way and on her own terms (the gift of autonomy), but she is stellar.

The photo is a little dark, but we wanted to be able to say it is unedited. ❤️

    Another beautiful post. Thank you so much and much love and best wishes for all you do – and to all of your wonderful companions – from Crieff in Scotland (Crieff is from the Gaelic for ‘tree’ and this is indeed ‘Big Tree’ Country). We read your posts with great pleasure and they engender a great deal of humility in the very best of ways! Just finishing a PhD working with environmental organisations in the UK (Bangor University, North Wales) and what you do is so very important, in so many ways that are not immediately apparent. I’m sure you know precisely what I mean! Thank you so much! It is a pleasure and a privilege to read your blogs and keep up to date with the work that you are doing.

    I was overcome with emotion as soon as I saw the photo, and more so after reading your blog. I am going to go back and read it again, maybe a few times ? and definitely want to look longer at the photo. Beautiful. Beautiful Lady, beautiful photo. Thank you for sharing it all with us, the dream, the photo, your words. I never dreamed how much I could love and learn from all of you ❤️?❤️?❤️

    Being in tune with the energies that connect all on this planet, in this universe and beyond- is part of your special gift—Scott and Kat. Lady obviously thrives on that energy. As do all around you. Blessings to the energies connected in Sanctuary.

      Extraordinary. A dream like that, so powerful, so clear is no accident. Deep meaning that makes me weep with joy. I cannot express my feelings for you and Scott. No words for the power ESB sends out to the universe. I think you are both really so humble that you do not realize what you have created. Bubble of love is the only expression I have for it but that is the tip of the iceberg. The strength and spirit of these elephants combines with your spirits are a glimpse of heaven. I have no words to tell you how much you do to enrich my life. I know I am not alone. I can’t explain it but feel there must be an energy between these elephants drawing you to Brazil. The dream can be interrupted many ways by different people for for me, it is clear. That astonding beauty of the necklace represents the circle around ESB.
      I too have had vivid dreams… I do not believe they are without an important message. I think you understand what your dream’s message was meant to convey. Lady is meant to be there. Her energy fills the space, the photo got a glimpse of her aura that glows at ESB. As I say, the pure joy of it makes me weep. You are so loved.

    Absolutely beautiful and magical. You are allowing Lady to be herself and make her own choices , and with such love and compassion. I truly believe she knows she is in paradise but probably cannot quite believe it!
    Love to you all

    Thank you for sharing your spiritual dream and thoughts about Lady, it’s good to know you feel she is flourishing and moving forward and she certainly seems to enjoy herself, it seems, from some of your posts. Great pic, it is like an energy force around her to give her strength and protection. You do an amazing job and are perfect guardians for the girls ❤️???✨??

    I am a believer in omens, signs, the inner-connectedness of the universe, and that the universe speaks to us. I am overjoyed you were given these messages of peace and comfort by the universe. If anyone needs to be at peace at the sanctuary it is you two. Because if you’re not okay, then the elephants are not okay. I have before thought about reminding you all to take care of yourselves as well as you take care of everyone else!! Love you ❤️

    Kay y Scott, yo también les pido que se cuiden. ?
    Todos quisiéramos estar ahí

      Si, Kat y Scott son personas increibles.
      Yo me imagino, que ellos, cuando cae el sol, ellos caen tambien y duermen muy bien.
      Yo creo que ellos se cuidan mucho–ademas la energia que debe dar el estar alrededor de estas ninas, eso restaura, verdad?
      Gracias, Kat, por tus escritos que nos hacen llegar a ellas.

    Lady’s protective bubble. Your blogs are so perfectly written and they paint the perfect picture. What a talent! These blogs every afternoon are a welcome interlude in our busy, worrisome and stressful days. Infinite gratitude to you and the crew. Kisses to all the ladies.

    “A longing to be alive while you live” is part of a quote from “Die Wise.” Lady shows us she is processing all that grief from all those years of longing. She glows with the true beauty and wisdom of the pure being she truly is. She’s used Sanctuary to support her deep healing, as if she’s undergone a sort of “psychic fracking” of her past — such beauty in her joy, at last.

    “She is stardust; she is golden.” We are all beings of pure love, but animals seem to have a direct connection with that love that humans often mess up. I am grateful for all the love that emanates from those girls and all the love you dear humans at ESB show as well.

      Sí, porque los animales carecen de egoísmo, en cambio nosotros cargamos el peso del egoismo en mayor o menor proporción. ?
      El egoísmo, en sus diferentes matices, es el origen de todo el sufrimiento que nosotros mismos nos generamos y a los demás, como a nuestras amadas damas.
      Oops! Hoy estoy muy motivada para escribirles a todos en el blog?

    Beautiful radiant Lady you shine like a star indeed. Exceptional picture and even more the mythical dream sequence. Totem animal power can be supernatural with surprising inner power reflections. From the first present of Lady she gave strength, wisdom and positive energy. She probably has traveled much further than anyone can imagine. ?❤️?

    It is her spirit informing you everything is good with Lady!
    One time my mother told me she saw a very bright light at the foot of her bed. I told her it was her guardian angel trying to contact her. I truly believe that and my mother had to trust me to tell that. She passed away shortly after that.

    Lovely picture. Beautiful post! It made me think of someone I know as well. I sent her a link to this post and highlighted this part; “There is an undeniable inner strength there. After all she has been through, she has risen up and moved forward with grace, where many beings would have faltered. Her resilience is astounding, and although it can be habitual to look at her with concern, she is tougher than all of us put together.” Wonderful writing. Thank you!

    The photo may be a little dark but it’s perfect! Lady’s light surrounds her and shines through the darkness. I totally get this blog and it expresses the sensitivity of those who care for her….we would wish for nothing less. I know Lady is in good hands!
    I like to think that the “aura” around Lady is a symbol of the love bubble of protection from all of her supporters and caregivers. Thank you so much for sharing this.

    Your dream is magical, just like Lady! She wears the sacred pendant around her, in every breath, every beat of her heart, every step she takes and will continue to take! Thanks for the outrageous unedited photo of the Lady shield of Love!!!❤️
