Caged Animals


CassieMeet Cassie. She is at the Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary in Prescott, AZ. It’s a small zoo with a diverse group of animals. Many of them come through rescue situations.


Some of the animals were doing their pacing back and forth. The term ‘caged animal’ rings true.


I’m not saying they should let the animals go or anything like that. I’m sure they’ve been in captivity so long they wouldn’t be able to survive on their own in the wild. 


What it made me wonder is how many people are living like ‘caged animals’. No matter how the situation originated:

  • An illness
  • A family situation
  • Abandonment
  • Rescued from one bad situation to another
  • In a situation you don’t want to be in

Are you in a situation where you feel you are caged, where you don’t have a choice? 


Even when things around you don’t appear to have options, there’s always something you can do. You do have a choice. The choice is within you.


You have a choice:

  • to look at the positive side of things
  • to be happy
  • in changing your thoughts or your attitude when they’re spiraling negativity
  • in putting yourself in the best situations for you, that you can
  • to call on Spirit, on your Angels, on your Loved Ones who have passed

Being caged is an illusion. You always have a choice.


Angel Blessings to you.
