I had a very upsetting afternoon Saturday. I had made a trip into town for milk and on the way home decided to grab my camera to take some pictures of the smoke we are experiencing from the forest fires occurring in British Columbia and Washington.
After I took the pictures I was on the way home and saw something strange happen ahead of me. Something came flying out of the ditch and hit the rear wheel of a full size truck heading in the opposite direction. The truck did not stop and I thought maybe I didn’t see right however once I got closer I realized I saw all too well what I had just witnessed. It was a beautiful adult coyote. I pulled over and wanted to call ‘someone’ to see if they’d come and help the coyote end it’s suffering. I didn’t have any numbers and was extremely distraught, in tears, apologizing over and over that I wasn’t able to help him. I kept hearing in my mind “it’s okay”.
I was finally able to continue on my way home and immediately called a fellow animal communicator. It was during this phone call that ‘suicide’ was being repeated over and over in my mind. As we continued to talk she said that for whatever reason I had to witness this. What popped in my mind right then was that I had to witness this so that his life mattered. Tonight I was again recounting what occurred and got upset once again and this is what came through - “Please do not fret over my death. I picked you to bear witness to my life so that others would know it mattered. I knew you would understand and pass on my message to others. They need to understand”.
I was able to connect to the coyote the next day and here is how the conversation went:
Me: Hello Coyote are you here?
Coyote: I am indeed.
Me: I am glad you are here to chat with me. Are you a boy or a girl?
Coyote: I am a male.
Me: Okay so I will refer to you as Mr. Coyote.
Coyote: I would appreciate that.
Me: I want to say that I am still very sad about your passing.
Coyote: Never fear, it was as I wanted it. I am so long of the Earth that I no longer wished to be a part of it. I was not ill or sick and felt that my time was now to leave the Earth. I took it upon myself to end it now. I will be back again.
Me: So why did I have to witness your chosen death?
Coyote: We wanted you to see so that you could pass on a message from us.
Me: Who is us?
Coyote: The collective coyote.
Me: Alright. What is your message?
Coyote: We wish you to pass onto the masses that we lives matter and that we are here to say that all is not well on the Earth. We see countless many depart too soon. Man is taking over our homes and fields. We soon will have no where to go. We wish to live in harmony with man however man is making it hard to accomplish. We realize that humans do not care for us and wish to eliminate us from the planet but that is not the plan. Man must learn to live in symbiotic harmony with all animals not just us.
Me: I’m sure the reason man doesn’t care for you is because you sometimes attack us or our animals that live with us.
Coyote: We do that to free them from the bonds of humans.
Me: Do they want to be freed though?
Coyote: Hmm something we did not consider. We think that all animals would like to be free like us and we have taken it upon ourselves to do so. We did not consider that some animals would choose to live with humans. That is an interesting concept that we will take into consideration. Many times we are chosen to remove such lives with a contract that was made in another time. We honor those as we have agreed upon to do so. Many times we are just hungry but this has been a plentiful year. We are doing well and thriving.
Me: I am happy to hear you are thriving and I appreciate the thoughtful consideration towards our animals that live with us. Many humans do not see you so considerate.
Coyote: Some of us have taken it upon themselves to right wrongs and they are causing considerable damage to our name. They see themselves as ones to extract revenge upon humans for taking our land away. They do no see living in harmony with man, just as man does not see it with us. Those ones will be driven from the land with sickness and illness. Their kind will not survive the hatred they feel inside. It will drive them mad. The collective wishes to live in harmony with man but we do not see that happening. We need to pass on the message that all can live in harmony if only man would stop controlling everything, instead start living with intention and sending love to the Universe.
Me: On behalf of those humans who care, I apologize for the treatment you have had to endure on our behalf.
Coyote: You are a special one. We can see your glow from here. There are a few of you around the globe that we have chosen to speak on our behalf. We see that we have chosen well. We have heard of and can see now, your love for all of us. For that we return the love twofold. You have a beautiful heart inside and out and we want you to know that we love and appreciate you for speaking on our behalf.
Please do not fret when you witness our death. Rejoice in knowing that we are free once again. Earth has become so heavy that it is difficult for us to maintain our energy. We see much change coming and many are choosing to leave now.
We have much to say. We want to maintain our lives but it appears that we do not matter to the general humans. We see that we matter to you and would like you to let others know that we mean no harm, we just want to live. We do not want to interfere with humans in any way however it seems that we must in order to get your attention. Our populations are dwindling and we see that. Our lives will be snuffed out in an instant if we do not speak now. If our messages saves just one of us that is what we can hope for.
Me: Many humans see wildlife such as you and appreciate your beauty but do not like that you have to kill to survive, yet we do it ourselves. Do you want to say anything about that?
Coyote: Yes we do kill others to survive. It is the way of the land. If we did not the Earth would be run over with those little rodents we like to catch. Man thinks that no animals can be killed yet don’t understand that if nothing got killed the Earth wouldn’t survive that either. There would be too many lives and not enough food. We would die anyways. This way, it is managed each year. The more food, the more of us. The less food, the less of us. Nature has it figured out. It is only man that thinks he is better at it. Man will eliminate all of us and then wonder why they haven’t see us or why they are getting overrun with the critters. We wish to convey that we are here to witness life on Earth and to teach others to respect and love us. Many of us come to Earth specifically to be food for others. We know and understand that. Man is the only one that doesn’t, yet he is part of the chain of life as well. There are those that are fighting to stop killing but they do not see that not all can be saved nor want to be saved. We have our own path to follow yet man interferes and see this as a good thing without understanding that he is interfering with a soul path. Just because it happens does not mean it was meant to be. We must return to complete the tasks that were set out when we came.
Me: Thank you so much Mr Coyote I sure appreciate you talking with me.
Coyote: It was our pleasure. You need never fear us. We watch out for you.
Me: Thank you for that. It comes with much gratitude and love. Do you have anything else you’d like to pass on?
Coyote: We do not. We are just happy to have been able to pass on our message to you so that you can let others know.
Me: I will certainly do that for you. Thank you for talking with me.
