(A sea turtle named Jonah)
Hello Earthy Angels and Faeries,
Did you know we can always make a positive difference? In today’s blog post I will show you how.
Almost two weeks ago, on July 4th (Independence Day), my husband and I decided to travel to Clearwater beach for an afternoon of sun, sea, and relaxation. We parked the car in one of the last remaining spots on the street we could find and headed to the beach. As my husband and I were setting up our beach umbrella I looked out over the water. My Angels laser focused my attention to something floating in the water. I said to my husband, “What is that floating out there in the water? I continued, “I can’t quite make it out.”
As soon as our umbrella was in place I headed out to the water to see what it was. I waded in all the way up to my chest before I reached the object. Floating about 20 feet from the shoreline was a magnificent sea turtle. It had transitioned to the light (crossed over to God’s Light) perhaps a day earlier and was gradually being washed ashore. As I picked up this beautiful sea turtle I felt his soul come in close to me. He told me his name was Jonah and he asked me if I would honor him by creating a sacred burial site for his body. My heart swelled with love for this amazing creature. Tears well up in my eyes and I replied “Absolutely Jonah, absolutely!”

When I picked up Jonah I noticed the reason for the premature ending of his life was most likely the result of being caught on a fisherman’s line. There was fishing hook embedded in his throat and about 3 inches fishing line protruding from his mouth which lead me to believe someone perhaps cut the line after catching the turtle.
I brought Jonah ashore and immediately found the perfect burial spot, a sand dune located about 10 feet behind our beach umbrella and lawn chairs. I then began to fashion a simple cross out of drift wood and sea grass. As I was creating the cross a woman approached me and asked if the sea turtle was still alive. I told her unfortunately, “No.” I then stopped what I was doing and asked her if she would be interested in joining her heart with mine and say a prayer for the turtle. So we stood under the hot Florida sun, two strangers now with hearts united and said a prayer of love for this amazing creature. I thanked her from my heart for helping me flow love to this creature, she continued on her way and I continued creating a sacred buried space for Jonah.

Once I completed the sacred burial site I returned to the water to the exact location where I found Jonah and I began to say the ancient Hawaiian prayer of forgiveness called Ho’oponono. I said, “I’m sorry. Please forgive. Thank you. I love you.” I repeated this prayer 3 times. I brought those words into my being, into my heart.
I said the prayer to the sea turtle. I told him I was very sorry that an act by a human ended his life prematurely. I asked him to forgive me, to forgive humanity. I then asked for forgiveness to be granted to the soul who cut the fishing line. I asked for forgiveness for all of us who act without realizing that every action we do here on earth has a reaction and that we are all connected to the sun, moon, water, earth, animals, and other souls. I began to flow waves of love to Jonah. I flowed love to me. I flowed love to the soul who cut the fishing line. I asked Universal Source of Light – God to transmute this entire experience to the highest Love and Light.
The moral of this story:
LOVE conquers all, always. Every day can be “Independence Day” when we allow souls to soar and take flight. We can change any mistake by those not yet awake into a soul growth experience for humanity by sending in waves of love, honor, forgiveness, compassion, and Light. Love, honor, and grace transmute painful experiences and allow us to create teaching moments for all that come across our path. When we realize each moment is sacred here we move about the planet “seeing with the eyes of the heart” and create sacred moments for all souls who cross our path.
Jonah sends a thank you message
Did you know when you assist a creature you can ask that animal to send you a message to let you know that they are alright in God’s light? Here’s how I did it and the message I received in return.
Three days ago the thought of Jonah popped in my head. I sent him a wave of love from my heart with a message embedded in the light. I said simply, “Jonah, I love you. Would you please bombard me with signs to let me know you are with me?” I then, went to pick up my granddaughter Hailey later that afternoon at summer day camp located by a waterfront area. She is staying with my husband and I for an entire month here in Florida. The moment Hailey saw me she said, “Look what I drew for you on the sidewalk!” I said, “Hailey that is so beautiful! Thank you for the picture and also being the messenger for my turtle friend Jonah!” I looked around immediately at the artwork the other children drew on the sidewalk. Not one other turtle to be seen. I said, “Hailey, what made you think to draw a turtle today?” She said, “I just saw one floating in the water over there when we were at recess.”
Now, that my Earthly Angel friends is AwEsOmE!!!!!

Do you want to bring in the energy of a sacred animal?
It’s simple really. One of the ways you can do this is to bring in a symbol that represents the animal you want to connect with. The symbol could be represented by a piece of jewelry, picture, or a statue or figurine like I have. Find more tips in my new book Becoming an Earthly Angel.

Have you found an injured animal?
If you have your phone with you at any time you can use Google and type in the search box “marine animal rescue” or “animal rehabilitation rescue”…followed by the city where you are located. There are many Earthly Angels providing solutions to help birds, squirrels, marine animals etc. It just takes a moment to create a miracle and save a life.
Clearwater Marine Aquarium, Clearwater, FL
The Clearwater area where I found Jonah the sea turtle, is now well known around the world as the beautiful oceanside community featured in the 2011 movie Dolphin Tale starring an amazing real-life dolphin named Winter. She now resides full time at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, a teaching facility teaming with Earthly Angels that rescue and rehabilitate injured marine life and educate the public on the importance of honoring all marine life.
