Prayer Circle for Animals Weekly Update from Judy Carman
August 24, 2015

Our prayers for all animals continue to circle the earth, to uplift humanity's consciousness, and to bless the animals themselves. Thank you for joining people around the world who are praying this prayer in many different languages but all with the same love:


Greetings of love and gratitude from Judy Carman

Namaste To All Beings.  The Sanskrit word “Namaste” is a beautiful greeting often heard in India and increasingly in other countries as well.  “Nama” means bow; “as” refers to I; and “te” means you.  The general meaning is that the spirit in me greets or bows to the spirit in you.  It is a recognition of the Divine spark and consciousness that dwells in ourselves and in the one to whom we bow.  It is spoken while placing the hands together over the heart chakra and bowing our heads with eyes closed.  Or one can simply perform the gesture without words, as the bowing signifies Namaste all by itself.  We increase the flow of Divine love when we hold our hands together over our hearts. What a beautiful way this is to greet animals we meet along the way.  On our walks in nature, we can greet the worms, the ants, the birds soaring overhead, and the cows in the field with our heartfelt Namaste.  For me it has become a joyful way to honor the animals I see and to show them utmost respect.  Because of its cosmic intent, I do believe these precious neighbors of ours receive our greeting and our love this way.  And because it has been done traditionally for centuries with and without words, there is great power within both the gesture and the words.

Our Prayer For The Week—“Namaste”--whenever we see any animal anywhere all week long.  We recognize so deeply that the Divine dwells in all beings; that all life is sacred and worthy of respect, compassion, and love. We know without any doubt that we are greeting someone with a Divine spark and a soul, not “something” to be used and exploited.  We give thanks for this precious connection we have to every single being, for they are all spirits just like us.  This week help us to remember to greet everyone we see with a joyful Namaste. And for those whom we cannot see; those who are being currently dominated, exploited, tortured and killed by people; may they hear and feel the love from our hearts radiating out to comfort them as we think of them and bow to them and say to them—Namaste.  Forever and ever, from our hearts to yours, Namaste.    

As always, with tears of gratitude, I send my thanks to each of you, dear Prayer Circle members, for joining this circle of compassion and shining the Light of Truth for all to see, so that one day soon, all beings will live in peace together.

May compassion and love reign over all the earth for all beings everywhere. 
Thank you all for your devotion to truth, love, liberation and peace for all beings.
With Love, peace, and gratitude from Judy Carman, and greetings from Will, Madeleine, Tara and the Circle of Compassion team
