Kakaduu has half lost their emotional balance due to their long-lasting illness and ongoing visits to the vet. Siuks-Piuks Vidiit does not seem to be much affected by the change of habitat and climate, subsequent health problems and the process of treatment; however, Säuks has become deeply depressed and from time to time suffers from anxiety attacks, feeling misunderstood in a seemingly hostile environment. His nervous system has become so unbalanced as a result of these existential and communicative issues that we had to teach him to practice Rain Meditation:
“Meditate on the rain, Säuks, let’s switch off the artificial sun and meditate on the rain, look at the trees in the rain and imagine that raindrops are falling on the leaves and making a splattering sound; empty your head of all stressful thoughts of your illness and terrible memories of visits to the vet and concentrate on the rain, look out of the window and look at the tree that is standing in the rain, and imagine that you are not Säuks but a raindrop yourself, and you are falling onto the leaves together with all the other raindrops, and are making this splattering sound you can hear!”
Afterwards, Kakaduu felt a bit better, started listening to Tatyana Tchernigovskaya’s lecture and found out that people communicate with animals and birds through art, especially through music. They then decided to start selling their so far mostly unused musical talent and began to give piano lessons, because they can easily and much better and cheaper than most piano teachers make understood what is and what is not there in the music, when they are being performed something. They began their teaching career some time ago, practicing with their gallerists, who have since, with the help of Kakaduu, made considerable progress in the art of interpreting the music of Beethoven, Rachmaninov and some contemporary composers.
“Kак не странно, но мой мозг чувствует себя умнее, когда о себе что-то новое узнаёт,” думал Какадуу. (‘How strange that my brain feels smarter when it finds out something new about itself,’ thought Kakaduu, in their own language, of course, because they are not able to think in Russian; however, they effortlessly listen not only to Russian, but to any other language out there.)
As the influence of birds over people is clearly extremely small, almost nonexistent, it is Kakaduu’s main need and mission to increase it as much and in whatever ways they can, while they are living and working among humans. That’s why Kakaduu have been hypnotising us for years already, so that we, too, would serve their mission - it’s not our fault that we have turned into half-animals already, acting as their gallerists-curators Zebra and Tiger, bringing their works, messages, and life story to people - Kakaduu is very skilful in hypnotising, especially Säuks, he talks directly to our reptilian brain.
