An Anam Cara reminds you of what is important.
They guide you to knowing who you are. They take you into what are called in Ireland “thin places.” They take you to edge. They coax you to edge. When you are trusting enough they push you. They know this is only way for you to learn to fly. They know you are an eagle that was brought up in a society of chickens. The Anam Cara will take you soaring. The very air that will take you higher is learning trust and faith in your essential goodness.
An Anam Cara takes you to source. You will be taken beyond time and space to very souse of your being. This will be done using different techniques depending on which Anam Cara you talk with. There will be techniques to take you out of constant chatter of coop into light heartedness of life beyond chicken wire. These techniques take you into ease and allow you to give up dis-ease.
An Anam Cara will affirm YOU.
You will be told that YOU are forever enough. This is because Anam Cara knows that you are forever enough. They have seen beyond limitation of ego. They know prison house of little self. They know you hold key to liberation. Only they might tell you that door is always open. It was and never will be shut to you. They have trust that “all is well and all manner of things shall be well.”
An Anam Cara does really care.
They know you are always held in hand of Beloved. They are not here to do anything for or to you. They are only there to facilitate your discovery that you are always enough. They know that what you need is not more of anything but a great big helping of “no thing.” This gives your soul true rest. This is where you give up trying to live life and become life abundant. You become flow of essential. Nothing matters because it all matters. Ultimately they take you to love of soul.
So this is how I would answer my Anam Cara soul hen.
Would she be satisfied? I am not sure. I know she would think I have avoided real question. “What comes first? – chicken or egg.” I compensate by tenderly gathering her up in my arms. I stroke her beautiful chicken head. I tell her, “I love you.” I tell her, “You are a forever enough hen.” She goes off and lays another golden egg.
I leave coop. I leave this Chicken Coop for Soul and return up ramp to our cottage. I am gathered in. I leave Murphy to debate rudiments of flying. He is on edge. He is excited. One day soon he too hopes to fly. The question is, “Which soul hen will do pushing.”
Blessings upon you and those you love and do not love.
