When humans and animals come forth from Non-Physical, you come with different intentions. Humans are more naturally involved in Step one : focusing, and sifting through the contrast of your time and space for the express purpose of asking, with ever increasing clarity, for improved life experience. Animals are more naturally involved in Step three : maintaining their alignment with their Broader Perspective. Humans are here to specifically create through more specific focus. Animals do less specific creating and are much less inclined to sift through contrast and make decisions. In simple terms, humans are more creative, and animals are more allowing. That is your natural bent.
While animals do experience contrast, and they do Vibrationally ask for improved conditions, they remain more often in alignment with their Broader Perspective than humans do. It is possible to be actively involved in sifting through contrast, as humans are, and to deliberately guide your thoughts into resonance with your Broader Perspective and experience the benefit of being an active creator at the same time that you are in important source of food for each other and for humans, the greatest value they bring to life on plant Earth is the Vibrational balance they provide, as they are extensions of Source Energy and remain predominantly in alignment with that Energy : Humans and animals make a very nice combination, just as you knew you would.
