Humans are the teachers, older brothers and sisters of the animal kingdom. Animals do not only respond to feelings and emotions of the people around them, they are also responsive to the mental atmosphere surrounding them.

When a pet “owner” speaks with his pet, explains things, gives him or her a name, plays bally, etc, all this has the effect of stimulating the latent aspect of mind in the animal. Animals don’t have a mind, but they have instinct which is a precursor for mental activity. And so the mental engagement between pet and pet owner has a very definite effect and helps the animal to evolve.

Animals are not for entertainment or food (although it actually is part of their job to serve as food for unevolved humans, but that is another chapter). They are our younger brothers and sisters moving towards an occult process called individualization which is the door into the human kingdom. So they should be treated with the proper love, respect and care.

The Integrated Ascended Master makes a very conscious effort to serve both as friend, mentor and companion for the animal kingdom.

Author's Bio: 

Dr Joshua David Stone was one of the most influential Spiritual teachers, leaders and forerunners of our time. He had a Ph.D. in Transpersonal Psychology and was a licensed Marriage, Family and Child Counselor in California, USA.
He served as Official Spokesperson for the Planetary Ascension Movement and made his mark in the Consciousness Community as a prolific writer, authoring the 15-volume Easy to Read Encyclopedia of the Spiritual Path, published in several languages, as well as eight major Ascended Master Training Courses and several comprehensive Training Programs ranging from channeling, the psychology of astrology, the Book of Life of God, to his legendary 2,000 page Counseling Manual, and much, much more.
Today, the I AM University is the one and only Integrated Ascended Master Training Facility in this world. It stands firmly on the foundation of a comprehensive and ever-expanding curriculum which Dr Stone dedicated his life creating.
In 2005, Dr Joshua David Stone passed over to the Spirit world where he continues to Spiritually support the expansion of the I AM University the continuation of which he entrusted into the hands of Gloria Excelsias, his long-term personal assistant and protégé.
Dr Stone is one of the most widely read authors in the New Age Movement and known as the world’s most trusted source for integrated Spiritual development. http://www.iamuniversity.org

Gloria Excelsias is the President of the I AM University, an educational institution with focus on Spiritual and psychological development that was founded by the late Dr Joshua David Stone in 2004 and handed over to her care and leadership in 2005, at Dr Stone’s passing. As Dr Stone’s personal assistant, close friend and protégé, she received ongoing personal training in applied transpersonal psychology and integrated ascension which would prepare her consciousness for her later service work as the University’s President. Having moved the I AM University from California to Salzburg, Austria, her native country, she is now passionately dedicated to running and evolving the I AM University as an inspired writer and speaker, placing thematic priority on Spiritual psychology, the re-integration and updating of ancient occult teachings and the overall unfoldment of human consciousness.
Some of her service projects include:
