The Cattle Crisis

While we're on the subject of meat-eating, I thought it would be a 
good time to share a channeling from animal communicator Kate 
Solisti-Mattelon. Enjoy this "'food' for thought." Kate has 
written a half dozen books on animal communication, their holistic 
care and conscious, healthy relationships with all animal beings - 
both wild and domestic.

Dear Friends: A vet friend of ours from Great Britain asked me to 
communicate with whoever wished to speak about the terrible cow 
crisis happening in Europe. I expected the cows to answer his 
request, but instead the "Council of All Beings" spoke through me.  
I want to share their message with all of you in the hope that you 
will find a way to follow their advice and join the "Re-Turning."  
Please feel free to share this with any of your friends who will 
respect and appreciate these words. I'd also appreciate any 
feedback you wish to share with me about your reactions to the 
message. Thank you. 
Warmest wishes, Kate

Communication from The Council of All Beings regarding the Cattle 
Disease Crisis 

Received and copyrighted by Kate Solisti-Mattelon, Animal 
Communicator, April 18, 2001

We are grateful for this opportunity to discuss the crisis. Let us 
go back to the beginning. When cows and sheep agreed to become 
domesticated by human beings, they did so as a gift to humanity.  
Before domestication, cows and sheep viewed themselves as "prey" and 
mankind as "predators." When men hunted the ancestors of the modern 
sheep and cow, Man honored and respected the gift that each 
individual animal gave. Man began the hunt with a ritual to 
communicate his honorable intentions to the animals. Man recognized 
that the spirit of the animal would have to agree to give up his 
body to the hunter. It was up to the hunter to "prove" his 
worthiness, since the gift meant death for the animal. The way to 
prove worthiness was to give gratitude and to express a deep 
understanding of the exchange that might take place. The honorable 
hunter, out of deep respect for the gift, would commit to killing 
swiftly and to using every part of the animal. The spirits of the 
animals would receive all of this information through the ritual 
communication. Then, one animal or more would agree to give 
themselves so that the human tribe would eat. After the kill, the 
humans would again thank the spirits of the animals and follow 
through with their agreement to use every part of the animal's body 
so that none of the gift would be wasted.

When the ancestors of cows and sheep (chickens, ducks, pigs and 
goats, too) agreed on a conscious, spiritual level to become 
domesticated, it was because humans agreed on the same conscious, 
spiritual level, to care for and protect them as well as to continue 
to honor the great gifts of milk, meat, skin and bone the animals 
provided. Today there are still small groups of humans and some 
individuals who continue in this honorable relationship. (The Masai 
in Kenya and the Amish in America are shining examples). When 
the "livestock" in their care are respected and cared for as well as 
humanely killed, the animals remain strong, and healthy in mind, 
body and spirit. When they give their gifts of milk and body, they 
do so willingly with the awareness that they are giving life so that 
others may live. Their milk and meat carry the energy of this sacred 
exchange and provide nourishment to the body and spirit of the 
person who eats or drinks. This is an honorable and life-affirming 
exchange. However, many years ago, groups of human beings began to 
disregard the original agreement. They began to take the animals 
for granted. They began to distance themselves from the knowledge 
that we all share bodies and spirits, that we are all expressions of 
the Divine - none greater, none lesser. Humans began to use each 
other and began to believe that all animals and plants were 
available for use as well. We call this the first "Great Turning."  
It was a time when humans turned away from Love, from Light, and 
from God. Sadly, this condition of separation continues to this 
day. After thousands of years of disrespect and objectification 
(cattle farmers now call themselves "cattle growers") the spirits of 
the animals have weakened. The life force in each and every cow in 
feedlots and factory farms is dim. Thanks to drugs, hormones, over-
processed feed with inappropriate ingredients, they have become 
physically distorted. Their spiritual evolution has been stunted.  
Such is the power of human forgetfulness. Humans, this crisis is a 
call to awaken you. You are destroying diseased and non-diseased 
animals out of fear and greed. You are afraid of losing profits. You 
are not afraid for the animals. You are not afraid for the pain you 
continue to inflict. You have created this situation. There is 
nothing "natural" about it. Stop for a moment and think with your 
hearts as well as with your brains. Look to rekindling the ancient 
agreement, before it is too late. Learn from your brothers and 
sisters who remember. Treat domestic "livestock" as conscious, 
living beings whose lives give you life. "Do unto others as you 
would have them do unto you." Treat animals with respect. If you 
cannot provide them with respect and properly care for their health 
and well being, you will lose them. They have suffered enough abuse 
because you've forgotten who you truly are. There is a "Great 
Turning" taking place again. This one is a "RE-Turning" to 
remembering that all beings are connected. As each individual human 
being chooses to step back into the sacred relationships, the Earth 
and all life turn to health and wholeness. Start with your own 
lives. Commit to loving yourself and knowing that the Creator loves 
you. Demonstrate this love whenever you get the chance.

Pay attention to what you buy and what you eat. 
You ARE what you eat.  
The energy of abused cows is carried in their meat and milk. You 
ingest the energy of sickness, pain, terror, stress, and unhappiness 
every time you eat. It weakens you and damages your spirit. Commit 
to honor all animals and vegetables that give their lives for you.  
Provide healthy, living nourishment, exercise, fresh air, sunshine 
and clean shelter for them. Stop using all deadly chemicals, 
hormones and drugs. Stop trying to engineer foods. You are 
poisoning everything as long as you do and use these. At this stage 
of your development you cannot "improve" on Nature. It is perfect 
and life-sustaining. Your methods are death. Plain and simple.  
When you remember how to be partners again with all beings, Nature 
and God will rejoice! Now, right now, make a decision to choose 
Life - for yourself, for your children, for the animals and for the 
Earth. There are beings - seen and unseen who are ready to help 
you. This is a great moment. Remember Love and act on it. Always.
