To a large extent, I consider myself a healer who just happens to have a day job to pay the bills! It would be nice to devote myself to healing full time as well as saving the planet... maybe one day. One thing I know is that healing works through me, and it's something I enjoy doing, and will be doing for the rest of my life. It's a great feeling being able to help people.
About animal rights: How can we be truly evolved or compassionate in life, if we are not compassionate towards our animal brothers and sisters, as well as other people. I've been vegetarian since 1990, and vegan since 1995, and although doing it for ethical reasons, a whole world of healing has been revealed regarding what we eat.
Avoiding animal products in the diet has been favoured by some fairly decent minds throughout history: Pythagoras, Plutarch, Leonardo Da Vinci, Tolstoy, Shelley, George Bernard Shaw, Gandhi, Henry David Thoreau, Albert Einstein, Dr Albert Schweizer, Bob Dylan, Yehudi Menuhin, Isaac Bashevis Singer, Sir Mark Oliphant, Peter Singer, Anthony Robbins, just to name a few. Not eating animal products has also been encouraged by many great Spirit Guides communicating through Trance Mediums, including Silver Birch and White Eagle
