Someone asked about his affinity to animals — if it has anything to do with past lives, and his intense dislike of birds. He described a bad experience with crows when he was young.
WE HAVE TOLD THIS GROUP ONCE THAT MOST OLD SOULS DO FIND COMFORT AND DO HAVE AFFINITIES FOR OTHER CREATURES. MOST OLDER SOULS INSPIRE CONFIDENCE IN THE ANIMALS, AND THE ANIMALS RESPOND QUITE NATURALLY TO THIS. SOME OLDER SOULS EVEN FIND THIS AFFINITY EXTENDS TO WILD AND FEARFUL ANIMALS. SEVERAL IN THIS GROUP HAVE DEMONSTRATED THIS. ANY BAD EXPERIENCE WITH ANIMALS AT AN EARLY AGE WILL CAUSE SOME ABHORRENCE. THIS IS CLEARLY WHAT HAS HAPPENED HERE. THE OLDER SOUL DOES NOT GENERALLY EXTEND BEYOND THE OFFENDING SPECIES, NOR DOES IT REACH THE PHOBIC STAGE, AS IN THE CASE OF PRIMARY EXPERIENCES DATING BACK TO PREVIOUS LIVES.
