Q. Does the animal kingdom, including insects, have a soul?
A. Animals, including insects, do not have an individualized soul, but are part of a group soul. So there is a group soul which is ‘horse’, or ‘dog’, or ‘cat’, or ‘elephant’ and so on. Those members of the animal kingdom, that is, those who work with humanity – like the elephant, the dog, the horse, the camel, etc, domesticated animals – are the leading members of their kingdom, and through their association with humanity the mental energy of humanity is enlightening the mental equipment of the animal kingdom. Their intelligence is being stimulated in this way. The Master Djwhal Khul, who gave the Alice Bailey teachings, has written that in the near future animals – for example pigs, which have a developed psychic nature – will become mediums and act as a link between the physical-plane world and what Spiritualists call “the Spirit World”. The ‘Spirit World’ is to my mind a very vague connotation: there are astral, mental, and spiritual planes, and there are many levels of each of these, so the Spirit World is not just one ‘layer’ above this physical-plane world.
ENHANCING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN HUMANS, OTHER ANIMALS AND THE NATURAL WORLD
Welcome to an exploration of interspecies communication – a journey of discovering ways to restore a deep relationship with all of life.
Human and animal communication creates a valuable bridge between human and non-human animals. By connecting with our intuition, we can engage in meaningful dialogue and remember how to hear the subtle messages from those whose space we share in our lives and our natural environment. Coming from a place of respect and reverence for all life, we can learn to understand our wilder relatives, honour their truths and live in greater harmony.

When she was older, her horse Sollie sent her feelings and pictures as they rode. but it wasn’t until she read Kinship with All Life that she realised it was the silent language of nature, and that others could experience it too. Her natural ability was strengthened by meditation, improvised comedy and listening to her animal friends, especially Sollie, Burmese cats Binah, Chockmah and Pucawan, and Reka, her German Shepherd dog.Billie and Andrew have studied with elders from numerous native cultures, including Aboriginal, Maori, Native American, Hawaiian and Celtic.
