Nail Clipping a Cat Dramatically Improved

© January, 2012
by Nedda Wittels

So after I bought and read and reviewed Getting in TTouchWith Your Cat, I made a point of using the gentle circles on Violet and Sakhara, my two feline family companions.  Both thought the circles a bit odd at first, but I was very laid-back about the whole thing.  I didn’t try to structure, “now is our TTouch time” with them.  I decided to just incorporate TTouch circles into our other time together.

So when one or the other would jump into my lap, I would pet them as I normally did, and then do some TTouch circles.  I didn’t memorize all the different ways to do them using different parts of your hand.  I just did whatever felt right.  I also did many different parts of their bodies, but not all in the same session.

We’ve only been doing this for a few weeks – since around Christmas.

And now, here’s the big surprise.

Violet

For two lifetimes Violet  has been very resistant to having her nails clipped.  I’ve used lots of Rescue Remedy flower essence formula, been exceedingly patient with her, and done my best to desensitize her to this nail clipping process.   As a result, I’ve been able to clip her claws, but often not all of them at one sitting.  I always make sure we finish before it becomes too hard for her so that we end on a positive note.

Yesterday, I picked Violet up after I felt her needle-like claws on my skin, and announced that it was time for a nail clipping session.  She gave me her usual dirty look, but I went right ahead and got out the clippers.

Violet will lie on her back in my arms and on my lap, which is her preferred position for doing her rear claws.  I often start with them because she will tolerate clipping them more readily than her front ones.   I have found  it’s best to get the rear ones done before she decides she’s not putting up with this human weakening of her battle weapons and runs out of patience.

This time, Violet lay there in my arms PURRING while I clipped her rear claws!!!

Purring and claw clipping have never occurred simultaneously before – NOT EVER!!

Then I did her left front paw – again because she tolerates this better than her right front paw.  If I do the right one first, I often can’t do any of the others at the same sitting.

Violet kept purring and just lay in my arms.  Three paws down.  One to go.

Although I was quite astonished, I continued to stay as calm as possible and to moderate my enthusiasm while I focused on the task at hand. I reminded myself to keep breathing and keep my heart center open.

Finally, I moved on to the claws on the right front paw.

The purring continued!!!!

I got them all done!!!

She was still PURRING when I finished!

If this isn’t a recommendation for TTOUCH, I don’t know what is.

Namaste,

Doubting Your Own Animal Communication

Can Doubts Be Eliminated?

 

As a teacher of Animal Communication, I am often asked, “When do you stop doubting?”  The answer, of course, is “never” – that is, unless you have so much ego that you decide one day that you cannot make any mistakes.  I certainly do not recommend anyone becoming so full of pride that there is no room for the possibility of error in how they see themselves or in how they do psychic work.

Telepathy is a psychic ability and there is never “perfection.”  There is always some possibility for error.  Consider that, while we are in physical bodies,

  • We have “forgotten” a vast storehouse of knowledge that is available to us on in the spiritual realms, but that is mostly unavailable to us while in physical.
  • We are experiencing the world we “live” in as reality, but it is actually an illusion that mirrors our own inner world of limiting beliefs and emotions.
  • We each see the world through a “pinhole” opening through the “frabric” of the “veils of illusion” – a very small view of the vastness of the universe.
  • We are limited by our current life experiences, the language(s) we speak, the vocabulary we know, the vibrational frequencies that we have integrated, and much more.
  • Communication can be in metaphor, which is even MORE open to interpretation.

The bottom line is that we are not completely “clear channels” of information, Light, Love, or anything else.  And to communicate what we receive telepathically (or through other psychic means), we must “translate” or describe the experience in language that someone else then understands based on his or her limited viewpoint.

It makes me wonder, sometimes, whether communication is EVER possible at all.  No wonder there are so many misunderstandings between beings in 3-D.

 

And so the point is?

I am writing about the subject of accuracy in Animal Communication because of a conversation I had recently with a client, Faun Fenderson.  Faun has graciously agreed to share this experience, and we both hope it will help others understand how difficult it can be to really “know” what is going on in any situation. 

Faun called me with some concern about one of the felines who is part of her large cat family that live inside and outside her home in New Orleans.  The family has grown and changed quite a bit since Hurricane Katrina, due to the increase in the number of “strays” since that time.  

Blackie, one of the cats living in the yard, had disappeared for just over 24 hours.  Due to his  progressive loss of vision and because Faun, herself, had spoken with him telepathically* and felt he was quite depressed about losing his sight, Faun wanted me to check in with him.  Some of her other cat family members had also expressed concern to her about Blackie.  (*Faun is a 2009 graduate of the TWA Animal Communication Coaching Program and is quite skilled at speaking telepathically with animals herself.)

During the first session, I spoke with a few of Faun’s other cats who are “in charge” at her house.  I also spoke with Freddie (former feline family member of Faun’s, now in spirit) who is often around to help out.  I also spoke with Echo, my former equine companion, also in spirit.  In the past, I have found Echo’s information to be highly accurate, but anyone can make a mistake or certainly, I can!

By the time the session ended, I was certain that Blackie was in the process of leaving the Earth plane, i.e., dying.  I came to this conclusion without actually checking into the state of his physical body (if my memory serves me – or possibly I couldn’t find a physical body – which has also been known to happen).  I also had asked for help, insight, and information from my guides and my “I Am Presence” (my highest spiritual aspect). 

The last thing I said to Faun was, “Of course, I can be wrong.  He might just show up at your door, and if he does, please let me know.  But I will be very surprised if that’s what happens.”

 

Surprise!  Surprise!

Because we did not record the sessions, and because when I work with clients it is difficult for me to take many notes, I did not have much written down when Faun and I finished our initial conversation.   Still, I had a strong feeling of certainty that Blackie would not be back – at least not in the body he had recently been using.

When the phone rang later that day, it was Faun.   Blackie was in her yard.  My mouth dropped open.  I was blown away. 

My “feeling” that Blackie would not return was SO STRONG that I had allowed myself to be CERTAIN that he had transitioned.  I had even felt grief, as I’ve been speaking with Faun and Blackie for a few years now.

Faun asked me to do a follow-up session the next day.  Thanks to Faun’s copious notes from our first conversation, she was able to tell me “word for word” what I had said to her over the phone in the previous conversation.  The words I had used never actually said “Blackie is dying” or “Blackie’s spirit is definitely detached from his physical form.”   Everything I had said, according to Faun’s notes, left open the possibility of his return.

Isn’t it amazing how we fill in the spaces of information to create something? 

Isn’t it amazing how we can convince ourselves that something is “so”?

In my next blog entry I will share with you Faun’s experience of the Blackie story.   I have left many of the details to her, since she’s the one with the detailed notes.

Meanwhile, I, the professional with 16 years professional experience and a lifetime of communicating telepathically, am still amazed by what can happen when using psychic gifts to communicate telepathically. 

It’s not predictable.  It’s not measurable.  It may or may not be varing degrees of accurate. 

It’s also thrilling and challenging.

I’m just grateful that I am still open to being in error, to making mistakes, and to learning from them. 

Namaste,
Nedda
