Can animals experience ongoing symptoms of trauma and stress? Yes! And Animal Communication and Energy Healing can help!

Animals can help humans who experience trauma, and we can help animals who experience trauma.

Today, many rescued animals experience symptoms similar to post traumatic stress. They need help to heal before they can integrate into your family. Animal Communication and Energy Healing are two powerful tools to assist them.

Why do so many animals experience symptoms of stress and trauma today?

Many of the reasons are similar to those experiences that can cause similar symptoms in humans.

~~ Too early separation from the mother dog, cat, or horse, for whatever reason.

~~ Separation from their human family due to hurricanes, storms, flooding, fires, earthquakes, and other weather or earth-changing event in which people and their animals can become separated.

~~ Being shuffled from one rescue place to another in the genuinely loving effort to find the rescued animal a new home.

~~ Traumatic loss because the family is no longer able to keep the animal due to financial and/or health changes.

~~ When animals are dropped off at shelters or abandoned without explanation, they are confused, scared, hurt, angry, grieving, and afraid – just to name a few emotions that come up for them.

~~ When the shelter is one that kills animals after so many days, the animals know they might be killed, and the spirits of other animals killed there may be lingering, making the situation even more uncomfortable.

This is not a complete list, but this list illustrates that one or more of these experiences may make integrating into a new loving family a challenge for the animal you’ve so lovingly adopted.

The good news is that animals can recover from symptoms of  stress and trauma. 

When you adopt an animal from a rescue facility, you may not realize immediately that the animal is having difficulty adjusting.

I’ve had clients ask for my assistance after struggling for a year or more to connect with a cat or dog or horse who has experienced a traumatic event.

These clients are good, kind, loving, nurturing people who have tried everything they can think of to help their new animal companion adjust.  Often they have been pouring love to an animal who is not open to receiving it.

Of course, the sooner you ask for assistance, the sooner you and the animal will begin to build trust and open a loving connection between you.

When an animal is emotionally shut down, afraid of experiencing yet another loss, and/or distrustful that this will be their “forever” home, something else must be added to the equation to assist them.

Whatever history you have about the animal is also a very important piece of the puzzle.

Using my Animal Communication and energy healing skills, I can offer you and your new companion special assistance.

Over several sessions, I am able to establish a rapport with an animal who is very shut down.

It can actually help me connect with them because I’m not physically present.

Working from a distance, I can easily make a telepathic connection, which some animals experience as less intrusive than a human stranger being physically in the animal’s space.

Furthermore, telepathically and energetically …

~~ I can feel what the animal is feeling because I’m a strong emotional empath.

~~ I can feel if the animal has a huge wall around themselves, or just needs some additional reassurance.

~~ I can feel if the animal is distrustful and can suggest ways of building trust.

~~ I can often feel if the animal is hiding something or lying to me and/or to themselves.

~~ I can ask other animals in your family for any insights they want to share, assuming they have already met the new family member.  These often prove to be of immense value in understanding what’s going on with an animal who is too closed down to share very much.

~~ I can scan the animal energetically, with the animal’s permission, to pick up energy patterns in their auric field, chakras, and physical body.

Once we have a better understanding of what’s going on for that animal, we together develop a plan of action.

~~ Sometimes Flower Essences are a good way to start.  I am able to suggest appropriate essences to assist you and your animal companion(s).

~~ As a Certified Practitioner of The Emotion Code, developed by Dr. Bradley Nelson, I know what a valuable tool this is for assisting an animal with post traumatic stress.  (This system has also been shown to be effective with humans.)  Releasing emotional blocks and reducing or eliminating walls around their hearts will bring about huge healing shifts.

~~ As a Certified Multidimensional Healer, I work with healing teams from Source to remove the energy patterns of trauma, repair chakras and other damaged areas, assist the animal’s bodies to rebalance, and bring the animal into a space of harmony, peace, and openness to their new life circumstances.

~~ I may also refer you to other practitioners who offer many other alternative services that will assist the animal, such as acupuncture, chiropractic, Theta Healing, and basic training for dogs and horses.

Having a “plan of action” helps you and the animal know what next steps to take and have a sense that there truly is hope of healing the animal and the entire situation.

Have you recently brought home a new animal or are planning to adopt from a rescue place?

If so, keep in mind that while coming to your home is the best thing for this animal, in some cases you many need to take some extra steps to help the animal integrate and become part of your loving family.

My personal favorite no-kill animal rescue in Connecticut is Our Companions If you’re not familiar with the amazing work they do, please read about their services and consider donating.  You might also consider adopting one of the animals they are assisting.  Thank you.

Melissa, what’s your favorite food? “Mouse.” That’s life with a jungle kitty.

That wasn’t the answer I was expecting, but, of course, that’s why Animal Communication is so important.  It definitely helps us understand the animal’s perspective.

Melissa outside nibbling grass.

Jungle kitty, Melissa, at home on the lawn, having a grass snack.

Melissa is now almost 4 and half years old, and is quite a fierce hunter.  She has captured and sometimes killed mice, chipmunks, garter snakes, dragonflies, moles, various other insects, and once a red squirrel.

Inside the house, she is controlling the mouse population.  There are nights when she doesn’t come to bed until 3 a.m. or later.  She’s been “on patrol.”

During the day, she gets to go outside for awhile.  This is to save me having to replace screens on a regular basis, and also because she’s miserable and frantic when confined indoors.

When she was younger, Melissa would bring in her prey alive.  This was to show them off to me and to play with them.  When they got loose … the game was on.

I would try to keep her from bringing in her catches, so Melissa became like Demosthenes, the Greek who had trouble speaking clearly and used pebbles in his mouth to improve his speech.

At first when she came to the door with a catch, I could tell by the sounds she made that her mouth was full of something.  This was true the first 2 times.

By the third time, I could no longer discern that Melissa had anything in her mouth.

Eventually, Melissa would bring home a catch that was already dead, and after playing with it a bit while I praised her hunting skills, she would let me take it and put it outside.  Once I did that, she’d ignore it.  I’d then take the body and place it where some other animal might benefit from her kill.

But eventually, Melissa just couldn’t resist eating her catches, despite my efforts to make sure she went outside on a full or nearly full stomach.

And the consequence of that is … PARASITES.

All wild animals (birds and mammals) that a cat will eat have parasites.  And by eating the animal, the cat gets infected.

It became clear to me in the last 2 weeks that Melissa has worms and needs to be dewormed.

There were 3 main symptoms:

    1. greater than normal hunger;
    2. constipation; and
    3. a coughing that occurs when the larvae, which have been maturing in the lungs, are ready to move back into the digestive system.

So today I got some dewormer from my veterinarian for Melissa, and some syringes I can use to give her the meds as a paste if I can’t get her to eat it in her food..

The thing is, Melissa has a very sensitive nose.  And this dewormer is supposed to go into the cat’s food.  Would I get away with this approach?

Melissa’s sense of smell is very powerful.  She won’t eat food that’s the slightest bit older in one bowl than in the other bowl.

I will serve food left over from the previous day, but still good to eat –  according to my nose and Starlight’s nose, but Melissa won’t touch it and always chooses the newer food in the other bowl.

Remember, my cats get a raw food diet.  The food is not left out for hours and hours.  They get it at feeding time and within 2 hours, they’ve eaten.   I put any left-over away.  It’s still perfectly good to eat – unless you have Melissa’s nose telling you otherwise.

So could I give her deworming medicine in her food?  Could I really get away with this?

Hence, our conversation:

Nedda:  “Melissa, what’s your favorite food?”

Melissa:  “Mouse.”  [This is said without hesitation or consideration, and very matter-of-factly.]

Nedda:  [Laughing very hard at herself for not asking the question correctly.]

Nedda:  “Melissa, of the foods I feed you, do you have a favorite?”

Melissa:  “Not really.”

Nedda:  “How do you feel about fish?  Like salmon?  Or sardines.”

Melissa:  “They’re OK.”

Well, I’m not about to serve mouse to Melissa.

Melissa needs 3 doses of medication over 3 days .  Today, Day 1, she ate it in some of the raw chicken mix covered with a small amount of sardines.

I tried serving it without the sardines, but after one taste, Melissa walked away.  And she had been asking for food, so she was hungry.

So far, so good.

Will I get away with this tomorrow and the next day?

Stay tuned for the update.

A few more things I have to keep in mind.

  • Melissa will not stop hunting, so she’s going to have to go onto a regular deworming schedule.
  • Starlight may or may not catch the worms from Melissa.

Oh, dear.  I shall have to give up feeding the birds this winter to keep Melissa from attacking them.  She can easily leap straight up about 4 and a half feet and knock a bird out of the air.  I’ve seen her do it!

I’m going to miss the birds … and they’re going to miss this feeding station.

Sigh!

That’s life with a Jungle Kitty!

 

Whatever you focus on will be your experience.

What are you focusing on?     What are you experiencing?

* * * * *

If you’re not sure what you’re focusing on, ask yourself, “What am I experiencing?”

We experience what we focus on very quickly today.

The vibrational frequencies that  are accelerating our Spiritual Ascension are so high and so fast that everything truly is happening faster than ever before.

So whatever you focus on is showing up in your life much faster than ever before.

This means you can change what you’re experiencing faster, too.

But first … you have to make some new choices, right?

* * * * *

We all make choices about what we want to experience.  Sometimes we make them Consciously.  Most of the time we make them UNconsciously.

We decide we don’t like what we’re experiencing, so we often blame someone or something else for that experience.

When we blame someone or

something else for our experience,

we’re experiencing UNconsciously.

I’m not talking about the world situation.

I’m talking about what’s in your personal experience right now.

When you don’t like what you’re experiencing in your personal life, in a relationship, in your job, in school, with your friends and family, then it’s time to ask yourself,

“What have I been focusing on that created this experience?

“What belief or feeling do I have that attracted this into my life?

“What do I want to experience instead?

“How can I change my focus to create that experience?”

Simply speaking, you have to begin by taking full responsibility for everything you experience.

When you do that, are you ready to make choices Consciously.

Remember …

You create every detail of your experience with your Consciousness.

 

Whatever you focus on will be your experience.

So if you focus on lower density emotions, such as fear, anger, jealousy, and sadness, you experience those emotions and they color how you experience whatever is going on around you.

I’m not saying not to feel your feelings.

I am saying to choose how to focus your attention.

Not only do you experience the emotions.  You also experience whatever evoked those emotions from within you.

If you focus on the pain and trauma of an earlier conflict in your life, you’ll be living that experience over, and over, and over, and over.  You’ll be missing all the possible joy available in the present moment.

There are ways to free yourself from the past.  You can CHOOSE to find what you need to let it all go!

The decision is yours.  You can remain stuck in the past until it becomes unbearable, and for some people, that’s their path … to be in pain and suffering until they can’t stand it any more … and then they decide to change and make Conscious choices.

The sun may be shining, the sky may be blue, you may have many beautiful things and people around you, yet you’ll be in a dark place – you may not even notice these things when you abdicate your power to choose.

* * * * *

The power to CHOOSE is the power to CHANGE.

We’ve been programmed to stay in darkness.

We’ve been programmed to give away our power.

I’m not telling you anything new

I’m reminding you of the truth about who you are, a Soul created in the image of the Divine Self, with all the powers and gifts, and the free will to use them … or not.

We forget so easily the truth of our existence.  Why do we forget?

We are distracted … because we allow ourselves to be distracted.

We are distracted … because we have a habit of being distracted.

We are distracted … because we focus outside ourselves instead of going within and centering ourselves.

We are distractedbecause we’re afraid of taking responsibility  for every detail of our lives.

We live in a matrix of old programming that exists in our DNA.

Yup – your DNA has been programmed with the frequencies of limiting beliefs and low vibration emotions.

Remember the Truth of who you are …

I AM Consciousness.

I have the power to break free!

How do you break free?

You begin by making a choice to break free.

Then, you step back and observe yourself.

You watch yourself and notice whatever has your attention.

Yes, that’s right.

Notice what is attracting your attention.

Notice what feelings it evokes in you.

Notice how it makes you forget your power to choose what you want to experience.

Notice what beliefs – what messages – you hear in your head!

Then …

You make a new choice!

You can do it!

You can choose to feel something else.

How?

BEGIN by OPENING your heart center.

Check to make sure your heart is all the way open.

Open the front heart chakra.

Open the back heart chakra.

Take a deep breathe in.

Breathe in the Love through your heart center
so the Love flows up and back between your two heart chakras.

Say to your I Am Presence:

“I choose to become a Conscious Creator of my Experience.

“I choose to feel unconditional love in this situation.”

“I choose to feel gratitude in this situation.”

“I choose to feel appreciation in this situation.”

“I see/feel the Love and the Light all around me.”

“I Am the Love.”

“I Am the Light.”

When you say these things, your vibrational frequency goes UP!

When you say these things, your energy goes UP!

When you say these things, your creativity goes UP!

 

Feel the glow of Divine Light and the power of Divine Love flowing inside you.

As you focus on the Light and the Love, notice what happens INside you.

Notice what happens OUTside you!

You do have a choice.

Change your focus, change what you experience.

Whatever you focus on will be your experience!

 

 

True Happiness Is Waiting Inside You.

August 12, 2019 by

The test of a smile is whether your eyes are smiling, too.

The great masters teach that external objects do not bring you true happiness. You feel happy for a short time when you get something or succeed at something, but that happiness fades.

Wouldn’t it be lovely if you could feel happiness — joy — bliss all the time?

That’s possible when you learn to go within yourself and experience your true nature.

We are each the Divine Self.  Our True Self is not separate from the Divine, and the Divine resides in complete, eternal bliss.

How can you contact your True Self?

By going within.

There are many ways to learn to go within.

For some people, sitting quietly in a natural setting, outside among trees, in a garden, by a stream are all ways of connecting with the outer world.   Then, after observing quietly what is around you, you can very naturally turn within and discover what is the beauty of your inner world.

Some people learn to be focused inwards by practicing yoga or a martial art such as Tai Chi.

Meditation is a great practice to strip away all the noise in your head so you can discover the quiet spot inside.  At the Core of your Being is where your True Self and happiness reside.

Allow yourself to be drawn to The Way that resonates for you.  Spend time being with yourself  quietly and with gentle focus.

Today, the Core of your being is in your Heart Chakra or Heart Center.

When you spend time in your Heart Center, it is easier to get in touch with your inner Bliss.

Once the outer world becomes quiet, the inner world can be heard … seen … felt … experienced.

Your inner world is blissful, peaceful, and filled with delight.

Does it surprise you to learn that happiness is your natural state of being?

Many people take nearly a lifetime of rushing around out in the world before they realize that there is nothing outside themselves that will bring them true happiness.

Why take an entire lifetime seeking outside yourself that which is already inside you?

You can begin today.  All you need do is heed the call of your Heart, the call of your True Self.

So turn off your electronic devices – yes, even your cell phone – and learn to go within. There is where you will find true happiness.

 

How does ENERGY HEALING help you feel better, relieve pain, and assist humans and animals to heal? This ancient technique of healing has amazing benefits.

Energy Fields surround us.

We all live in overlapping fields of energies.  These fields includes your physical body, your auric field (which consists of 6 additional bodies), electromagnetic fields that emanate from your organs and other body parts, and the energies of everyone and everything around us, including the earth.

Since everything is energy, including your consciousness, you might wonder how healing can ever happen without paying attention to the energy aspects of your bodies.

What Is Energy Healing?

Energy Healing is any healing method which
helps restore and maintain
the energy systems of  your bodies
by working directly with the energy of your bodies.

The term “energy healing” is used  today for what has also been called “hands-on healing”, “spiritual healing”, “psychic healing”, and even “energy medicine.”

In energy healing, a wide variety of techniques can be used.  Whatever techniques are used, they directly address the energetic levels of your bodies.

While tools such as stones and crystals, acupuncture needles, pendulums, singing bowls, and others can be part of a healing session, many practitioners use only their hands and their intention to facilitate a healing.

Clean, pure, love-filled energy (life force, prana, chi, ki) is made available to the bodies, while inappropriate energies are assisted to leave the bodies.

To be healthy and in balance, your energy must be able to flow freely, smoothly, and harmoniously.

What Can Disrupt the Energy of Your Bodies

Infection, injury, toxins, stress,
too much or too little of any substance
are all examples of events than can  disrupt your bodies’ energies.

When you’re sick, it’s because the flow of energies has been disrupted, causing some areas to be jammed up with too much energy while others areas are depleted.  The disruption can come from accidents, infections, emotional traumas, and many other stressful situations.

Several things can happen during an energy healing session to restore the smooth flow of energies.  Here are some common examples.

  • Disorganized and chaotic energy patterns become organized and harmonious.
  • Blocked energy flows are unblocked.
  • Sluggish energy flows are restored to normal speed.
  • Depleted energy areas are assisted to regain a normal, healthy level of energy.
  • Excesses of certain types of energy are reduced to normal.
  • Disconnections between the spirit and body parts are reconnected.
  • Communication breakdowns between body parts are restored.
  • Energy that doesn’t belong is helped to leave the body.
  • Repair the physical body’s etheric blueprint (template).
  • Repair, balance, and harmonize the chakras.

Some examples of energies helped to leave are:

  • viruses, fungus, bacteria.
  • memory patterns of old injuries.
  • memory patterns of weapons from this or past lives.
  • emotions that haven’t been fully expressed.

These are just a few examples of what energy healing can address.

What Do Energy Healers Do?

Energy Facilitators support the body’s natural healing abilities.

Energy Healers facilitate the healing process, which is done by the bodies themselves.  An Energy Healer is more accurately described as an Energy Facilitator.  They do not actually heal the body.  The body must heal itself.

The body, when functioning optimally, knows how to heal itself and how to restore balance.  It wants to be in balance and harmony and good health.

What Are Some Benefits of Energy Healing?

Here are some of the benefits you may experience:

  • Relief from physical/emotional pain and other symptoms.
  • Feeling increased relaxation and calm.
  • A reduction in your stress level.
  • Feeling empowered to take charge of your healing process.
  • A sense that your physical body is stronger or more able to cope with life’s challenges.
  • A sense of well-being, comfort, integration, and wholeness.
  • Feeling more at home in your body.
  • Feeling more energized and more playful.
  • Feeling more balanced and more grounded.
  • Improved appetite; greater control over unwanted habits.
  • Increased interest in life.
  • Increased immune system function.
  • Faster or more complete healing from illness, injuries, or surgery.
  • A feeling of greater alignment with your I Am Presence.
  • An opening to receive more Divine Love.
  • A sense of greater connections with the Divine or with your I Am Presence.
  • A feeling of greater alignment with your spiritual path.
