Pet Whispering

Anyone who knows me knows I love animals!

Last weekend in the Bay Area, Pet Food Express was having an all weekend pet adoption fair for local animal rescues and shelters!

Rocket Dog Rescue – one of the rescue groups – sent out a request for volunteers. They needed companions for all the wonderful pooches who were going to be there mingling with their potential new owners.

Say no more – I was in!

When I got to the fair, I was asked if I could look after Sophia – a German Shepard mix.

Sophia was stressed and who wouldn’t be – we were at a busy event with lots of other animals! I was told she had been surrendered to Rocket Dog with a litter of pups. Her pups had all found homes, now it was Sophia’s turn.

I have learned through my Intuitive reading practice that every living being is connected through energy. Animals are no different. In fact, I have found them to be highly attuned to this vibration.

While I’m not an animal trainer, I have a few techniques that help me connect with and reassure them when I meet them.

Before I interact with animals, I ground myself so that I am calm and centered.

Next, I clear my mind.

Now it’s time for an energy check in.

From my mind’s eye, I say hello to the animal.

I have found that animals really respond to energy and images, rather than a lot of words.

To put an animal at ease, I send calming energy and a feeling of love. In my experience, most animals don’t understand the word love, so I have found that it’s best to show them with feeling.

Animals are incredibly intelligent, and highly emotional so when they don’t understand what’s going on, it’s very stressful for them.

At the adoptathon, I sent Sophia a mental image of her with her new family. Images are the best way to communicate with animals and it helps keep them calm and relaxed.

I have found that animals love being talked to and having their feelings validated.

If you are thinking about welcoming a furry family member into your home, please consider adopting from a local rescue or shelter.

If adopting is not in the cards, there are many other ways to become involved in saving a pet’s life: volunteering, fostering, rescuing and donating.

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”
– Anatole France

Being In The Center Of Your Head

There is a spiritual place in the center of your head that allows you to stay more neutral and allows you to respond, rather than react, to the ups and downs of daily life!

I continually return to this place when I want to tune out the external world and connect to my inner world. It’s my own private sanctuary!

Being in the center of your head will allow you to release excess mental noise so that you can hear and take advantage of your instincts and intuition.

In daily life, much of our attention gets focused externally. By making the conscious decision to return to the center of your head, you call your energy back and can detach from any situation.

From this place, you will be able to observe everything that is happening while remaining at your vibration.

Centering Technique

  • Sit in a comfortable chair with your feet on the floor.
  • Close your eyes.
  • Take a nice deep breath. I like to breathe in through my nose, send energy down into my belly and then exhale out through my mouth.
  • Begin by Grounding. Step-by-step instructions are here.
  • Gently become aware of the center of your head.
  • For those of you who may be unfamiliar with this area, take your right index finger and place it on the right side of your temple (just above the ear) then place the left index finger on the corresponding side. Visualize an invisible line connecting the two points.
  • Now move one index finger to the center of your forehead. Take the second index finger and touch the back of your head at the exact same spot.
  • Visualize an invisible line connecting the two points.
  • The center of your head is located where the two lines intersect!! It’s also commonly referred to as the 6th chakra or third eye.
  • Take a nice deep breath and bring your awareness into this area.
  • Start to notice what thoughts and pictures arise. Just relax, breathe and release them down your grounding cord.
  • Begin to tune into your body – staying in the center of your head. Breathe deeply and begin to release any distractions, mental chatter or emotional energy.
  • Continue to breathe deeply and stay in the center of your head. If you find your attention wandering, just gently bring your awareness back to this area.
  • Continue to do this exercise for 10-15 minutes, or until you feel clear-headed and calm.

Like all good tools – the more you use this technique, the more you will notice a difference. Enjoy being in the center of your head!!!!

When you want to bring change into your life, how can you tell if it’s motivated by your higher self or your physical self? Discerning between the two can be a challenge, but over time, you can start to tell the difference emotionally and energetically. The first thing to become conscious of is why you […]
