Tilikum has transitioned into the spirit world

He spent most of his 35 years in captivity, his tanks the equivalent of a bathtub to a human.

He was the focus of the documentary 'BlackFish', which exposed the conditions captive orcas were subject to in institutions such as SeaWorld. Conditions which ultimately lead to Tilikum tragically taking a human life.

His suffering was great. In the last years of his life he was in constant pain from various captivity inflicted illnesses and side effects including tooth infections, chronic bacterial infections, and of course - mental + emotional trauma.

Reports say that at 35 he reached the high average age expectancy for a male orca. This is true...this is the life expectancy of a CAPTIVE male orca. In the wild they can often live past 100 years.

I honour Tilikum for his role in this world. He was a great teacher to human kind through his suffering and the tragedy that was his life.
Animal teachers leave this earth when their mission is complete. 

Tilikum leaving at this time gives me great hope. His work here is done. The people are awoke to the cruelty of orca captivity. Hearts have been opened. SeaWorld is losing visitors and have announced they will no longer breed captive orcas. Momentum is building and I pray now that his legacy will empty the tanks.

If you'd like to help the captive orca who are still suffering right now, check out the documentary BlackFish , share what you learn with friends + family, and visit to find out how you can help , so we can end this cycle of suffering once and for all.


My First Wild Animal Healing Experience

I came across an injured pheasant hen while walking Guru Dog Neve along the bridle paths behind our house the other day. When I say came across, I mean we almost stood on her. Her tawny and black feathers blended in so well with the stony track she was sitting in the middle of. As soon as I saw her, I knew something was wrong. No pheasant will let a dog get that close, unless something was really wrong. I moved slowly around her and noticed she was missing feathers on her...

A Disconnected Sole is a Disconnected Soul

The harvest is almost complete. My house is surrounded by wheat fields, so for the past month there has been a lot of harvest type going ons day and night. And dust. Lots of dust. And dust, especially of the wheat kind aint something I do well breathing in. So I've spent a lot of time indoors this past month. Hiding from the dust clouds. That means no daily barefoot grounding, a drastic reduction in long walks in the countryside and a turning away from mother...

Buffalo Medicine

Every week I pull a spirit animal card to reveal what animal wisdom is coming through to guide us through the week. I've had the experience over the past couple of months of one particular card - Buffalo - coming up a total of three times. Clearly, there is some important animal wisdom here that needs to be heard.  The three readings were: 1. Ok this is an amazing card. For those of you who have been feeling like you've been setting all the intentions,...

Instincts Aren't Only Helpful For Animals

Why do birds fly south? How do they know how to do it? Why does a bear know how to hibernate? Or a caterpillar know to spin it’s cocoon? All these actions by animals are instinctual. They’re naturally instinctual creatures - as are we. But humans have become removed from our instincts. We have become far more trusting and reliant on external forces than those that we feel.

Red Kite Hawk Wisdom + Leonardo DiCaprio

It’s been two weeks since Team Neveu packed up, left the big smoke (aka London) and set up camp in a sweet cottage, nestled amongst rolling countryside in Hertfordshire. We’re slowly settling in, finding our roots and figuring out where the best sun spots are for snoozing in. I have many tales I could tell about our move - it was eventful to say the least (no hot water or heating in the middle of winter!). But I wanted to share a story about animal wisdom and an urgent message about...

Animals As Our Mirrors

    I want to share with you some animal wisdom that has been coming up for me personally in the last few months. 6 months...probably the whole year. Guru Dog Neve is not happy. She's kind of hating life here in the city. She doesn't like the noise, the traffic, the people, the lack of grass, all of the fireworks (wtf people!). Ratty cat isn't in a good way either. His Feline Inflammatory Bowel disease is playing up and we are having trouble feeding him. I don't tell you...

2016 Intentions + Free Spirit Animal Readings

        Happy New Year my loves! Welcome to sweet 2016. At this time of the year many of us are looking ahead, dreaming big dreams and holding our hopes high for the year ahead. Me? I’m pretty excited and optimistic about 2016 (though I’ve always been a glass half full kind of girl tbh). My husband and I spent the last few minutes of 2015 watching Youtube videos of really inspiring stories, facts and figures which showed in the past year how much more compassion and...

Are You Taking Life Too Seriously?

Do you ever get caught in the trap of taking life too seriously? After I had a life changing moment at just 22 years old, from ignoring what my heart truly wanted, I swore to throw away my five year plans and stop taking life so damn seriously. To be more carefree, and joyful and trusting – like my furry gurus taught me. But last week I found myself in a familiar but dreaded hole. I had somehow got sucked back into Serious City and it was not a pleasant trip. This past weekend was...

Toad Wisdom - Relying On Inner Strength

One of my favourite things about our new apartment is the big south facing window that overlooks the communal garden. At one point in time, someone put a lot of care and attention into making this a magnificent space with beehives, water features that cascade into a pond and a dedicated bird feeder area. However, over time the garden has become neglected and nature has taken over – making it into a small patch of wilderness in North London. The garden attracts lots of wildlife, and I have spent the past...
