|I Talk to Animals||
Many of you wonder if I can connect to wild animals. Yes! I can and sometimes they will start the connection. This is a story about a porcupine conversation that was inadvertently started because I was wanting to take a photograph.
As I was driving into town, I took the exit off the highway. It is between some hills and goes under the High Level Bridge. There are several small trees in the ditch along the road. I noticed a porcupine in one of the trees. He was perched perfectly where I could get a beautiful picture. However, I did not have my camera at the time. I was excited at having seen him and was lamenting over not having my camera. I said to myself that their faces are so cute and adorable. I suddenly heard, “We’ve never heard a human say such things about us before.” I replied back that I really felt that way and that I think they are cute and adorable. The porcupine went on to explain that they really didn’t want to harm anyone however they needed to protect themselves. He continued on saying that I must be the human from down below (the riverbottom park) because they had heard about the human that glowed. (Another story from a connection with a pheasant). I said, “Yes, it’s most likely me”. The porcupine then said, “In that case we won’t harm you if you want to come closer”.
I went on to continue my duties in town and returned home about 1 ½ hrs later. I left my packages at home and grabbed my camera with the intention of heading back to the exit area. I was praying and hoping that the porcupine was still there. He was! However he had moved onto another tree and wasn’t so easily seen. I parked the truck and walked across the road, standing on the shoulder. There was too much snow in the ditch for me to walk up directly to the tree however I wasn’t that far away from it. The porcupine looked directly at me as I was taking pictures of him. When I was done, I thanked him for allowing me to approach him and take his photograph.
I have had other encounters similar since this connection. Actually stood directly under the tree a porcupine was in and he just observed me as I was observing him. They truly are peaceful creatures and have no desire to harm.
