As spiritual and empathic individuals, we did not need to study science or commit ourselves to research. We are preternaturally aware of the energetic links between ourselves and others. Some of us are for example clairsentient, clairvoyant or clairaudient.
I naturally appreciate it takes time for attitudes to change however I cannot help but on occasions become angry and upset when humanitarian crises happen due to political or religious idealism. Also when animals are unnecessarily hunted or killed, even when trees and foliage are chopped down for simple cosmetic vanity.

In the meantime I will continue to ground myself and do what I can in my small way to promote compassion and a real understanding of the issues.
