Animal Communication Can Help Traumatized Animals

Any animal might experience trauma.

You can’t tell just by looking at a cat or dog, but PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) can affect animals as well as humans.

Loss of one’s human family and home due to floods, fires, earthquakes, and other natural situations are on the rise for animals.

Imagine if you experienced this loss, and then someone picked you up off the streets, put you in a cage, and sent you far away from your home so you’d never be able to find your human family again.

And many are moved around from shelter to shelter, while others are killed (euthanized is not a correct term here) out of so-called kindness.

This is the situation experienced by many displaced animals today. With the best of intentions, they are shipped by rescue organizations all over the US.

Their emotional state is often not taken into account, partially because many humans still don’t understand that animals feel just as humans do.

Visits to the veterinary office can also trigger stress.

Yesterday I took Starlight to the homeopathic veterinarian because she has an upper respiratory infection.  Her sense of smell is severely reduced and I have to put very smelly fish into her food to get her to eat.

Although the veterinarian we saw is quiet, calm, and gentle, and one whom Starlight has seen before, she became upset when I left for 2 minutes to use the restroom.  All the way home she meowed and said that she wasn’t sure it was me because she couldn’t smell me.

Cats rely on their sense of smell to identify people and other animals.   Of course, while driving a car, it’s hard to reassure a cat in a crate of anything.  Despite my reassurances verbally and telepathically,  she continued to be upset until we got home.

Once in her normal environment, she calmed down, used the litter box, and ate a hearty, fishy smelling meal.  Melissa grooming her helped, too.

If even this type of situation can cause stress, imagine what it’s like to go to the vet and be left there for surgery or after an injury without anyone explaining what’s happening.

Most veterinary practices perform euthanasia and the animals who are staying there are sick or injured, so the energy there can be intense.  Preparing a animal to see the vet can help, but may not be the whole answer, and isn’t always possible, especially in an emergency.

PTSD doesn’t always show up immediately after a traumatic event.  It may appear weeks or even months later.  And some animals may experience more than one trauma before showing symptoms.

There are lots of websites listing symptoms that could indicate PTSD in a dog or cat, but don’t necessarily mean the animal is experiencing PTSD.  For example, inappropriate urination can be caused by a urinary tract infection or other issues.

However if you notice any of these behaviors in your cats or dog, you might consider that there is something going on that is stress associated.  I found this wonderful list at:  http://www.goodpetparent.com/2015/02/06/ptsd-pets/

  • Uncharacteristic aggressiveness
  • Fearfulness, trembling
  • Increased agitation
  • Decreased appetite and weight loss
  • Reduced interest in playing, going for walks, or interacting with other pets and/or people
  • Hyper-vigilance (an intense, “on guard” awareness of surroundings)
  • Tendency to be easily startled
  • Urinating or defecating inside (when previously housebroken)
  • Increased neediness or attachment
  • Unprovoked whining or crying
  • Excessive barking or meowing
  • Destructive behavior
  • Extreme escape behavior to avoid a stresser (such as chewing through drywall to attempt to flee during a thunderstorm)
  • Sudden changes in temperament
  • Hiding for no reason
  • Excessive panting
  • Pacing
  • Fear of being alone
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Avoidance of people, places, or things associated with a traumatic event

Even an animal who has lived with you for some times can develop PTSD symptoms.  Still, when you are looking for a new companion, be aware that many may have gone through stressful situations before you find them.

When you open your heart to adopt someone at a rescue shelter, you may sense right away that the animal is in an enormous amount of emotional pain.  You may want to help, want to connect with them. You may feel drawn to adopt that person in fur or feathers.

But this isn’t always the case.  Some frightened beings are able to mask their emotions, and then when you get them home, it becomes obvious that there’s more going on than you might have suspected.

And once you realize that there’s something going on, the steps necessary for healing are not always obvious.

Since each case is different, general suggestions, such as “give the new animal his/her own space” or “be very patient with the animal” are great, but may not move the animal forward as effectively or as quickly as working with a professional animal communicator who can connect telepathically with your new companion.

A Professional Animal Communicators has special abilities that are very helpful to the animal:

  • the ability to sense and feel the animal’s energy.
  • the ability to to experience the animal’s perspective viserally and emotionally.
  • the ability catch glimpses of the animal’s inner emotional state, even when they may be deeply hidden.
  • The ability to help the animal communicate with their new human companions to facilitate mutual understanding.

Most animals respond well to someone making a telepathic connection, in part because it may be the first time they have ever experienced this and don’t have any old baggage around it.

Of course, that doesn’t mean the animal is going to open up and pour out their life history.

Just as you may find it too difficult to talk about your own life traumas, animals often feel the same way.  But just knowing that someone can listen and understand helps many animals begin to open up again.

When you’ve been traumatized, trust is at a minimum or gone, and rebuilding trust can take a very long time.

Still, in a telepathic conversation, it’s possible to encourage an animal to begin to consider the possibility that their life situation is improving and their feelings will be respected.

When you’re in a state of PTSD, the feeling of having no control and of being powerless makes recovery feel hopelessly impossible.

In contrast, an Animal Communicator can ask the animal what will make him/her more comfortable.  An Animal Communicator can encourage the animal to take some first steps towards healing.

Combining Animal Communication with Energy Healing and with The Emotion Code™ technique (of Dr. Bradley Nelson) brings together 3 powerful tools to help an animal transform back to feeling good about life.

So if you’ve recently brought home a new animal companion whom you suspect has some serious trauma in his/her past, consider Animal Communication and Energy Healing for your new family member.

Unity Consciousness Is Here Now.

It’s time to live in unity

with your Divine Self.

I Am Presence - your true self.

It’s time to shift your intentions.

The Ascension energies are now supporting you to shift your intentions to MERGE with your I Am Presence.

If you’ve been requesting ALIGNMENT with your soul or I Am Presence, this is a good thing.

But alignment implies separation.

In Unity Consciousness

there is no separation.

When you “align” two things, they remain separate from each other, even when working in harmony.

It is an optical illusion that railroad tracks merge in the distance.

Just like railroad tracks working together in alignment, it is only  an optical illusion that they merge in the distance.

Ascension is about merging.

Ascension is about oneness.

Ascension is about your True Self,

your I Am Presence

flowing into your physicality so that

you are no longer divided,

you  are no longer in conflict,

you are no longer caught up in duality.

 

Ascension is about creating

ONENESS WITHIN YOU.

For years I requested to be in alignment with my I Am Presence.

For years I requested to be in alignment with my Soul path, my Divine Service.

This alignment has taken place.

But I still think, feel, and act separately from my I Am.

Now I know that this is just the beginning.

Now I understand that it’s time for the next step.

Are you also ready for the next step?

The next step is to request complete merger.

Dear I Am Presence,

I now request full merger with you.

May any and all parts of me that vibrate at frequencies less than 5-D be cleansed, transmuted, transformed until all parts of me are ready for complete merger.

May all parts of me that already vibrate at higher frequencies fully merge and integrate with you now.

I AM my I Am Presence.

I AM my Soul’s purpose.

I AM my Soul Path.

I AM my Divine Service.

And so it is!

I Am Infinite Consciousness.

I Am Infinite Consciousness.

The energies supporting this next step are here.

The Divine Light Codes are already in your body, your auric field, your dna.

They are being activated daily.

You are changing.

Your physical body is changing.

Your energy bodies, which are your mind/consciousness are also changing.

It’s happening right now.

So if you feel ready, take the next conscious step.

You have free will.

If you didn’t want to be here to experience this Supreme Ascension experience with the physical body, you would no longer be alive on this planet.

Are you consciously participating?

Ascension is about being FULLY CONSCIOUS.

Ascension is about CONSCIOUSLY PARTICIPATING.

Ascension is about exercising your FREE WILL to merge with your Divine Self.

*  *  *  *  *

The process of Ascension is challenging in so many ways. 

Need some help?

I’m here to assist you with Energy Healing.

 

A Basic Principle of Healing: “First, Do No Harm.”

February 13, 2018 by

Hippocates

Greek physician Hippocrates (460 BC – 370 BC) author of the Hippocratic Oath for Doctors.*

The Greek healer, Hippocrates, set the first standards for medicine in the form of the Hippocratic Oath.

A basic principle of that oath was

“First do no harm.”

This ethic is meant to be the guide for whatever intervention a physician or healer uses to assist a patient to heal because …

the actual healing itself is done by the body.

For example, you accidentally cut your finger.  You may clean the wound and put an antiseptic on it, followed by a bandaid.

None of these things actually cause the cut to heal.  That work is done by the physical body itself.

  • Cleaning the wound and using an antiseptic remove bodies that may interfere with the physical body’s ability to repair the cut.
  • A bandaid, or bandage, assists by keeping the cut clean, and may hold the two sides of the cut together, thus making it easier for the body to reconnect the tissues as it repairs the wound.

This is similar to how Energy Healing helps you recover from an illness or an injury.

In Energy Healing, the facilitator’s (healer’s) primary responsibility is to support the body’s natural healing processes.

This is done in a number of ways.

  1. Removing energy blocks that may interfere in the healing process.
  2. Supporting the body energetically so that it has the energy it needs to do the repair work.
  3. Communicating clear intentions to the body so it understands the expectations and goals of the person whose body it is.
  4. Assisting the body to let go of energy patterns that are interfering with the healing process, such as trapped emotions, limiting beliefs, and distorted vibrational patterns.

A healing facilitator communicates with expert energy healers in higher realms who may be able to see or perceive subtle aspects of damage that are outside the third dimensional reality.

Full recovery may require that those damaged area be repaired as well.

A well-known example of this type of situation would be a damaged chakra.

A chakra is a spinning wheel of energy. The most well known chakras are along the spinal column.

There are also many chakras of varying sizes throughout the physical and other energy bodies.  Some chakras are part if the meridian system used in acupuncture and are called “acupuncture points.”

When a chakra is damaged or functioning improperly, a complete healing outcome may be compromised.

Each chakra may be a slightly different size, color and complexity, depending on where it is located in the body and the services it performs.

Chakras are a basic part of the energy anatomy of all conscious beings.

Humans and animals have chakras, and so do plants.

Mother Earth has chakras as well.

Within the physical body of a human or animal, the various organs and glands have chakras specifically designed to keep each one in balance and harmony by providing essential “life force” to that part of the anatomy.

When my cat Violet was diagnosed with early stage renal (kidney) failure, I discovered that one of her kidneys had a chakra that was misaligned and wasn’t able to function properly as a result.

By repairing Violet’s kidney chakra with energy healing, I assisted her kidney to function better.  Using muscle testing, I was able to increase the energetic ability of the kidney to function by more than 50%.

This contributed to Violet feeling more comfortable in her body for a longer time than she might have otherwise.

In all types of energy healing, “First, do no harm” remains an essential ethical principle.

Self-Love: How do I love me?

Learning to love myself … seemed like a strange thing to do, at first.  Then I discovered that the old saying is true:

You can’t really love

someone else if you don’t

love yourself.

If my pot of love is empty, I have no love to offer another.

If my pot of love is partially filled, then giving away what’s there leaves me empty, exhausted, unsatisfied, and resentful, and feeling unloved.

If my pot of love is full to overflowing, I can generously give love to others.

For me to love me means I must fill my pot of love to overflowing.  Then I have plenty of love to share with others.

My pot of love.

If I rely on others to fill me up, I’m behaving irresponsibly.  I’m giving away my personal power by failing to acknowledge my own ability to take care of myself, as well as my worthiness to be loved.

When I say, “myself,” I’m not speaking of my “small self” or ego.

I’m speaking of my Divine Self, my I Am Presence.  I no longer see myself as small, helpless, and lacking in value.

I AM the Divine, and I have the POWER to fill myself up with Divine Love.

In this way, I acknowledge my ability to fill my pot of love to overflowing with the abundance of the Divine Love that flows infinitely from Source.

I have the power to fill myself up with love on a regular basis.

So …

How do I love me?

By resting when I need to rest.  By sleeping when I need to sleep.  By eating when I’m hungry, and eating what my body wants and finds nourishing.  This includes chocolate, by the way.  Chocolate is a “food group.”

How do I love me?

I fill myself by staying away from people who insist on being negative about everything, who focus on what’s wrong with everything, and who choose to see disaster everywhere.

By avoiding movies, stories, TV, news, and other things that are all about violence, abuse, and mistreatment of others when I myself am feeling vulnerable.  I already know that the 3-D world is filled with horror.  I don’t need it in my face as a daily serving of malnourishment.

I fill myself by training myself to shift to a positive focus regardless of the situation, to find the gifts and gold nuggets waiting for me everywhere, and to not allow energy vampires to feed on me.

Negativity is draining.

Positivity is filling.

I envison a world I am choosing to live in, one where love, harmony, compassion, tenderness, kindness, generosity, forgiveness, and mental/emotional sanity prevail.

How do I love me?

I speak kindly to myself.  I eliminate negative statements that are habits of thought.  “That was stupid.”  “What a dumb thing to do.  You’ve made a mess again!.”  These types of statements have no place in self-love.

How do I love me?

I tell myself the truth, even when I don’t like the truth.  No more secrets from myself.  No more lies to myself.  This is authenticity, and anything less creates holes in my pot of love allowing the love energy to drain out.

How do I love me?

I tell myself that, wherever I am, it’s the perfect place for me to be in this “now” moment.

Even tho’ my ego, my small self, may not know why I am where I am, my Soul knows.

That means there is more than one benefit to my being wherever it is.

So I seek the lesson instead of wasting energy in resistance or trying to run away.

This moves me through things faster and with less discomfort.  I focus on moving through the turn at the bottom of the curve and see myself emerging up the other side.

It’s like riding a horse.  If you look at the ground, that’s where you land.  If you look ahead, the horse and you fly smoothly forward to where you put your focus.

How do I love me?

I allow myself to be “wrong,” to make mistakes, and to know that I’m still learning, and that learning requires making mistakes.

When I am “wrong” about something, I admit it freely without guilt or recrimination.

How do I love me?

When I go into fear or anxiety, I wrap my arms around my inner child and comfort her with Divine Love.  Her fear and anxiety quickly begin to subside.  Then I get up and move around and do something, anything, to get my body moving.

I also have learned to use flower essences, supplements, and homeopathic remedies to help shift me out of dense emotional patterns.

How do I love me?

By giving to others what I truly have to offer, but only if those others truly want it in the moment I am able and willing to give it.

If someone wants something of me that I don’t have the energy or desire to give to them, I respect myself and them by saying. “No.  I’m not willing to do that.”

Anything else is inauthentic, and unloving to myself, and to them.

Have you checked in on your Pot O’ Love lately?  It it filled to overflowing?

Love is Golden

 

Delusions of Spring

January 30, 2018 by

Melissa, “I’m so bored!”

While Starlight sleeps, Melissa yawns and complains that the weather has been too cold.

It may be different where you live, but here in Connecticut, we’re having a very strange winter.

Melissa, who loves to be outside and really needs to be outside for a short time each day, developed instant cabin fever as soon as it got below 45 degree Fahrenheit last fall.

Then we got the really cold temperatures, where daytime highs were 15 degrees, night-time lows were single digits, and wind chills were sometimes 25 degrees below zero fahrenheit.

This type of cold lasted for at least 3 weeks, maybe a bit longer.

Now things have warmed up some.  We’re actually at 40 degrees the day I write this, and Melissa and Starlight have become super active.

They want to be on the unheated, completely enclosed porch.  They go out there and come back inside quickly, and go in and out as often as I’ll allow it.  Often it turns into an exciting game.

They go onto the porch and then chase each other back inside.  The  chase continues around the house with great excitement, especially if I stand ready at the door to let them go up and back a few times.

Feline view from back door.

Back yard in winter.

When I open the sliding door to the back yard to fill the bird feeders, they want to charge right out there.

In frustration, the two members of Mischief, Inc. will sometimes knocking things off tables and run around to get my attention.  “Why can’t we go out?” they demand.

Melissa encountered snow for the first time one day when I gave in and let her go outside.

She was very annoyed that each step put cold, wet, snow between her delicate toes.  She would shake out one foot, put it down, shake out the next, and keep doing this at every step.  She finally gave up and came back onto the porch.

The day I let them both go outside there was still snow on the ground, although melting.  Melissa tried to jump over the icy spots near the steps, only to discover that it’s still cold and wet wherever she lands.

On the slightly warmer days, I wonder, “Are we all having delusions of spring?”  After all, if the temperature gets above 32 degrees, that must mean spring is coming, right?  Or is February about to land on us and show us all what fools we are?

It’s been so dark this winter, I’ve had to use a lamp designed to assist people with SAD (Seasonal Affect Disorder) to keep me energized.  Dark grey, cloudy skies, and very short hours of daylight seemed endless.

When I turn the lamp on, it’s like the actual Sun is in my office.  I’m supposed to turn it off after 20 minutes, but some days I leave it on for an hour.

So yes, everyone at my house is allowing herself to fantasize about long, bright, warm spring days.

 

Cuddled up for a nap.

Melissa is wishing Starlight would wake up to play with her.

Are you also longing for spring?  The day the temperature rose to 60 degrees, there was a bear in the street.  A huge brown bear.  It’s energy looked confused.  What was it doing awake?

Are you and your animals having unusually intense cabin fever?

How are you and they coping with this long, dark, intensely cold winter that offers sudden fits of spring-like weather?

Have you noticed any wild animals acting strangely?
