The law of the jungle

Intuitive Healer Katarina Winslow reflects on our true nature

To be inquisitive is part of who I am, and curiosity has brought me answers to many questions over the years. The answers have come through my own experience, through other people and through messages from my guides, my angels, the ones who care for us all from the other side of life. Approaching middle age, I admit there has been quite some time for serious reflection. As a teenager, I investigated the selfish gene theory, the idea that everything in nature is based on the survival of the gene. Then I did a deep dive into my own psyche and its hidden corners. Doing time travel to other realms and seeing visions from out of space about the future of humanity, I saw people waking up all over the planet. There were beautiful trees everywhere, and as each tree cracked open there was a person walking out of it. It was a beautiful vision and it happened everywhere. For me, the message was clear, everybody who has authentic wisdom will start speaking up, and we will wake up to the truth of our nature, a nature of compassion and care for everything that is living. Part of my mission in life is to help people find more happiness by guiding them to listen to their essence. To listen to the one part of them that is hard to hear when there is too much noise on the outside. The one part that it is difficult to hear when there are blockages built around the heart and the essential self — when what the heart desires is not heard. The heart holds more truth than we can ever imagine. It is the essence of our existence, it just keeps beating to keep us alive. The question is how alive do we want to be? Is it enough to just keep our hearts physically beating, or do we want our lives to have more meaning?
The pulse of life is constant for as long as you live. It is then we can ask ourselves more questions that give us answers to an inspired life. A life close to your heart, a life full of inspiration.
Before long, when it is closing time and your heart stops, it will be too late to ask questions about how to live. People who have been dead and brought back to life claim that their questions have been answered, even if they never asked. The stories that they all tell are the closest we have to a glimpse of the afterlife, and from these accounts it seems we are all made the same. Some people have been dead for as long as twenty-five minutes before being brought back to life. This has been documented by Raymond Moody, the “father” of the modern NDE (Near Death Experience). His pioneering work “Life After Life” has been said to transform the world. But how many have heard about this book and his research?
They say that there will be a picture flashing in front of your eyes and you will see your entire life in one single image. All your life experience will be shown to you in one picture. Amazing, right? To see an entire life in one image is beyond human comprehension; it is an expansion into a limitless realm. When you see your life flashing by, you will understand how people were touched by your presence.
If we can trust all these people, if we all have the same experience after death, doesn’t that mean that we all belong to the same conditioning? We are all floating on a small planet in an infinite universe. Mother Earth is a living breathing organism that makes us have life on earth. Life is a mystery, and to solve this mystery we have created an infinite number of Gods and Goddesses, while the mystery is not to be answered — it is to be lived. If we knew everything, how interesting would life be then? I find it fascinating that even a word, however beautiful, is a description of something that is beyond description.
To understand that we are all connected, we just need to see that the air that goes into your lungs also goes into mine — the air belongs to us all.
With my deep inner conviction that we all belong to each other I have been saddened lately by people around me looking at the chaos of the world and saying, “This is just how things are, people are animals.”
If you really think about it, are animals causing the chaos in the world? Surely, animals live in harmony with nature. Of course, I see what people mean by this phrase. They mean that our animal instinct or primal selves are programmed to cheat, corrupt, compete and win on any terms with no consideration of the long-term consequences. But is this true?
No, it isn’t. The good news is that our primal instincts are to support and help each other in a crisis. The primal instincts of nature are to sustain life, and in difficulties, nature is persisting by mutual benefit. The truth is that the more difficult the living conditions are, the more mutually supportive nature become of each other. Survival is enhanced by helping and supporting each other; when there are natural disasters, people forget about themselves to help each other. That is our true nature, that is our primal instinct, to jump in and save each other.
If you would like to add more joy to your life, find someone to help and the sun will immediately shine brighter. Can’t we all relate to that? You feel a bit low, and unexpectedly somebody needs you and then your spirits change in a heartbeat. Suddenly, you feel good because your existence mattered to somebody else. Our emotional and psychological well-being is increased by mutual benefit, and in the end, it outruns competition and separation. How much fun is it to be alone on the podium and have nobody to celebrate your victory with?
How much fun is it to win in a society that loses? What about being the only one standing when everybody else has fallen? How nice is it to be a winner when you can’t breathe and there is no water left? How powerful is that?
After all, the key to a happy life is not to struggle and compete on your own, certainly not to win when everybody else is losing. The essence of who we are is love, and to experience love we need each other.
To exist, to be human, let us be of help to one another this winter. Let us all reverse the trend of the law of the jungle and embrace the natural law of altruism. So that we can see, touch and feel the essence. The essence of that we only truly exist in the reflection of each other. And that we exist more fully when we are helping one another.
Let us stay Together.
