The blessing of a blessing

At this time of year, as the juvenile birds and mammals start to gain confidence and move away from their parents to become independent, life is precarious for them. Every summer young spotted woodpeckers fly into the windows of my house despite the ribbons and other deterrents I put up as warnings and last night an immature heron flew in on wobbly wings, narrowly escaping striking a tree, as two baby hares loped down the drive careless of predators nearby.

There is not a lot of traffic on our rural roads, but there is evidence of road kill every couple of miles now, usually hedgehogs, rabbits, owls, badgers, squirrels and weasels. It is such a shame but is the way of nature - and man - and I have learned to look at it with equanimity but hopefully without disregard for what has been. Every creature has a soul connection, and when I can I try to honour it. I learned a most helpful way of so doing, in these circumstances, from Gregg Bradon's "Secrets of the Lost Mode of Prayer" whereby when we see an animal that has been run over, for example, we bless the animal, the perpetrator, and ourselves as the witness. It is an active, living prayer which is quick but also, I believe, effective. We cannot bring creature back to life but with the help of Spirit we can ease their transition and heal the situation for everybody.
