Live on The Home and Family show!

If you are like me you were PARALYZED by this year’s elections. However, you really have not seen anything till you see what happens when a spider gets paralyzed by a tiny wasp.  A spider wasp. Not to mention have you ever seen a scorpion dance and what makes him glow in the dark? Find out what happens when I explain it all as  handle both of these amazing creatures LIVE on national tv in under 6 minutes…

spidyTarantulas. This is a species where you might want to be a lady. The females live to be 20-25. The males live barely over 8 years if they are lucky. What does this say about the strength of female….not to mention the females might decide to eat the male after they mate. This might be a great example of why you want to take the female to dinner first, although it rarely happens in the human world anymore. Hey, you can’t blame a woman for needing to be fed. But let’s talk about growing…. the way they grow is to molt. This means that they rid themselves of the body they have and leave it behind. This would put all the plastic surgeons out of work in L.A. I can tell you that.  The crazy thing is that they can replace even missing legs as well as replace the internal organs, stomach lining and even genitals. I wonder if you can rent another spiders body after they are done?  All I know is that when Angelina Jolie Molts, I want to be on the list. Or if I can not get her body I at least get her Italian vineyard. That seems fair. Since she just devoured Brad and will be full for a while. However, what I am about to tell you will make you forget everything else….The worst enemy of the tarantula is the Tarantula Hawk. ( which is not a tarantula or a hawk- it’s a wasp)The female wasp will paralyze the spider by stinging it. She then drags the tarantula to a secure private place and places her egg on the abdomen of the spider then leaves. When the egg hatches, which might take weeks, the baby wasps will eat away at the paralyzed spider avoiding the organs to keep the spider alive as long as possible.  I mean WHAT? I needed a while to digest this. But then I thought about it and realized this might be a strange way of natures balance. Since tarantulas paralyze their prey, vomit digestive enzymes all over it to then suck it up like a fruit smoothie with their fangs- this might be the best example of Karma I can possibly think of. But I still would rather think of molting into the next Angelina Jolie.( If you want to see it with your own eyes and remember we only have 2- here is the link. But beware, it is not for the weak.)

 

SLOW DOWN! YOU MOVE TOO FAST….

  1. SLOW DOWN you move too fast!!! The SLOTH- It’s scientific name “Bradypus” means”slow feet”. A pretty good name for me lately. After breaking my foot a few months ago, I realized that maybe the universe is telling me to just slow down. (Or stop being clumsy)  This was right after I spent time with one of the slowest creatures on the planet- and I can tell you that one of my favorite animals is the SLOTH!! This animal is so amazing to see in real life AND on camera. Simply MESMERIZING. So cartoonish in person it was made into a cartoon in the movie “Zootopia” portraying hysterically slow creatures taking minutes to finish a sentence. Trust me I have dated some men very similar. As slow as sloths are though, they only sleep 10-13 hours a day. Well, I can do that. However, these creatures are so slow that algae grows on them. Four weeks after………KEEP READING, IT’S GETTIN GOOD…

50 acts of love in 50 days UPDATE!!!

Many people ask ” Hey Rachel- what happened to the 50 acts of Love in 50 days?” Just to be clear- I never gave up the mission. AND- I never said “50 acts of love in 50 days” IN A ROW :)But I have now reached over 50 and thought it was worth posting about!!!  The last few months I have continued to do acts of love each day in dedication to the lives lost in the Orlando shooting. But what I learned about consciously doing acts of love in the moment, is that not every act of love could be filmed. In fact some of the acts of love if I posted them,would have broken a persons anonymity, or the moment would have passed trying to get it on camera. I learned that experiencing the act of love seemed far more important than making sure it was filmed. However in retrospect I have………KEEP READING, IT’S GETTIN GOOD…

Day 9- 50 acts of love in 50 days

If you have only seen this version on facebook this pop up video YouTube version is much funnier- Dedicated to “Top Hat Eddie” who died in the Orlando shooting.

Day 5-Oprah teaching me what the best act of love is

This act of love by Oprah is dedicated to Frank Hernandez who was one of the victims in the Orlando shooting- age 27- and had “love has no gender” tattooed on his arm. I dedicated today to him because what his tattoo said  was very much what today’s act of love taught me.

50 days of 50 acts of love for 50 lives

How to heal a broken heart…

Watch this video. I couldn’t believe it, but when I found out that even trees deal with issues of the heart- I knew there was something to learn.  I always ask my followers to share with me how you LOVE your wildlife- and this was a really good video sent to me by David Sampson. Not only is he an epic world wide guitarist and musician but he loves his wildlife too. He taught me that  a tree can get heart rot- which is a fungal infection causing decay that enters through wounds on the branches- but somehow it is still possible for the tree to bear tons of fruit. David decided to help out the tree he lives next to, and protect the open wounds with some pruning sealer. He does this because he loves the wildlife around him and knows if he protects the tree, it will live longer and provide more oranges.

This made me think about people and how we are still able to lead amazing abundant lives even if our heart has been hurt and can feel like it is rotting. I realized how important it is to protect the wounds that we have by not allowing any fungus (negative people or thoughts) to get in. The pruning sealer is a metaphor for self love- making sure we surround ourselves with good people, the ones that would make sure we are protected and that we seal out the bad that can get in and slowly kill us. But we also must be that pruning sealer for ourselves. We must protect ourselves from depressing news, conflict, distraction, and make sure we don’t let anything into our lives that does not feed us on all levels ….because all that crap is a fungus that we need to seal off so that we can bear the most fruit possible. As spring is approaching – I am thinking -what and who am I allowing right now in to my life  ? What do you I want more of ? What qualities or people or thoughts do I want to officially seal off from my life for good ?  Can I do some soul prune sealing ? I challenge you to pick one thing you no longer will have in your life and decide that today. Seal it out. Now pick one thing you want more of and simply state that intention- knowing the fruit will come from this statement you are making. 
Thank you David for Loving your wildlife because when you do- it loves you back. Email me and share how you love YOUR wildlife at Rachel@loveyourwildlife.com

I would love to share your story !!

Wild days!

How amazing that I could get the chance to share all about animals and the amazing work that The Wildlife Docs do- and also make so many people laugh and smile- and inspire kids to follow their heart. The last few days seeing all these amazing bright spirits want to help animals just gave me hope in humanity again. Thank you for everyone that came to see the live shows and learn about animals. And laugh with me. It was an incredible few days. I hope there are more. 🙂
