Wild Animals

The only other living, breathing, beings out there on my mountain bike ride were two HORSES (with riders) and two jumbo COYOTES with a gorgeous full coat of red rusty fur!

See them? The 2 horses in the distance…

They were about 5 feet in front of me on the trail. We had a face-off as I approached and communicated with my body language then with words. They slowly trotted ahead on the trail, then into the bushes.

When I encounter them.

I have no fear, only exhilaration!

Coyote’s Animal Spirit message is: when a coyote Spirit animal crosses your way, you may be encouraged to not take things too seriously. Perhaps you need to lighten up or change your perspective about an issue or matter that has been on your mind for a while. There’s often wisdom in making fun of serious matters and letting go of certainties.

Call on the coyote to invigorate an appreciation of life‘s wisdom through diversity and richness.

I love this message!

I know that most people don’t like seeing a coyote because it reminds them of all their beloved animals that have been eaten by coyotes.

I understand, but I think we all need more compassion for coyotes. They are just living out their wild animal nature. They’re trying to survive out there. Clearly, the 2 coyotes I saw today were well fed. There are lots of rabbits in that canyon so I think that’s why they look so healthy and big.

Anyway, don’t forget to take the time to notice your animal spirit guides. They always have a message for us.

Check out the website Spirit Animal and I recommend reading “Animal Speak”by Ted Andrews.

Fascinating!

One more thing, when you encounter a wild animal or a wild person, try not to exhibit fear.

Move forward in your nature and let them know that you respect them in their space and you’re just going to go on your way and they can go on their way as well.

They would rather you be in a fearful, weak state. That’s what they are looking for—the weak, the injured, the fearful.

Life wants us to trust. I trust the animals.

Trash Talk

I’m not really sure what to say.I’ve been hiking in these Malibu trails for 23 years. I am sad to say that the last couple of hikes on one of the sweetest trails in Malibu was so full of garbage that I vowed to bring a garbage bag for the next time I hiked it.

Sure enough, I got a load full of trash on this hike.

People come to these trails because they’ve read it as a recommended trail somewhere. The people who come are in search of a getaway from the city and I assume they revere the trails in a similar way that I do–just can’t seem to wrap my head around why they would be so careless with their trash?

Water bottles, cigarette butts, candy wrappers, and more.  Is it because they’ve never been taught not to litter?  Or is it that they just don’t care?

Whatever the reason, I have a hard time just walking by.

So, the next time you are out on one of our fabulous trails and you spot some garbage, please set an example and pick it up.  Perhaps others will follow your lead and we will no longer have people who disrespect such a beautiful place.Tara and the coastline
