Reading Time: 3 minutes

A few nights ago, a woman named Lauren Taylor realized there was a mountain lion in her Oregon living room.

That’s all kinds of frightening (even if the pictures of the lion seem adorable). The good news is that no one was hurt and the lion eventually leaves the house six hours later without incident. There’s even a neat video in which Taylor, playing a drum, gets the lion’s attention to the point where it just paces around for a bit before walking out the door.

I’ll give her credit for this: She stayed in the house and handled everything calmly — even taking pictures along the way. If I were in that situation, I would’ve run away, called police until the animal left, and then burned my own house down so it never happens again.

Why bring this story up here?

Because this is what Taylor wrote on Facebook to explain how she was able to get the animal out of the house:

I also want to make sure people get the important lesson here about frequency and attunement. Cats are extremely psychic and perceptive of energy and this lion could have been dangerous in an energy field of fear or anger. In fact, before I consciously elevated the energy field and entrained her to a theta state, she was frightened and determined to exit through a closed window because a housemate had shouted and slammed a door after walking into the dark room and seeing what she thought was a deer, and then realizing what she thought was a deer was actually a mountain lion.

There was much love, feline-speak eye blinking, and telepathic transmissions (including sending her pictures of the routes out of the house via open doors and the route out the backyard, across the creek, through an open field, and back up into the hills) exchanged before we dared rouse her to leave her safe spot, which we did with sacred drumming, after having prayed and meditated, called in native ancestors’ support, and received guidance that this was how to do so safely. We drummed, …and she roused and knew just what to do. She walked out through the open doors, through the yard, across the creek, and through the empty field behind us exactly as we had shown her.

It was a perfect ending to a blessed encounter that could have been dangerous if approached from a lower frequency. Thank you for seeing and honoring the spirit of the encounter and this beautiful and powerful animal.

See?! The lion left the house because it was in a theta state allowing it to absorb the higher energy field it knew about through psychic communication. The loud noises and desire to return to its natural habitat had nothing to do with it.

And just in case anyone fears the lion will return, don’t worry. Taylor has it all covered.

(And to those suggesting she’ll be back: No! I telepathically told her very emphatically to never enter any human’s home or yard again and to stay out of town or she would likely be killed… and she acknowledged understanding this.)

There you have it. There’s a lion version of parseltongue.

A part of me wants to scream about the levels of delusion in all this. (Even more frustrating are all the commenters responding to her story in only positive ways. No one seems to have the courage to ask, “What the hell are you talking about?”)

The other part of me is eager to just see how far this goes. You could probably tell Taylor that this only happened because Mercury was in retrograde and she’d completely fall for it.

In any case, this post isn’t a call to harass her or invade her thread. It’s just a perfect example of someone so desperate for confirmation of her supernatural beliefs that she’ll offer the craziest story (which she clearly believes) to explain something that has a perfectly natural explanation.
