Helping Opens Your Heart!

Sophie – a two-year old German Sheperd – came into my life when I was volunteering at a local adoption fair.

After the adoption fair, Sophie went to a foster home. I thought about her often and wondered how she was doing.

A few weeks later, I was at an event and heard that Sophie was moving to a rescue near me. I offered to come and walk her, spend time with her and be part of the team to help find her a loving home.

I really wanted to help Sophie find that special person to love on her and give her the life that she deserved. I was not able to offer her a home myself so this was the next best thing that I could do.

Then, Sophie got attacked by another dog and needed stitches in her front leg. During her recovery, she kept pulling the stitches out – preventing the leg from healing properly.

I was at a loss as to what to do.

To be honest, the timing wasn’t great: it was Thanksgiving week and I had a million things going on. Her medical situation was adding another layer of stress to the situation, but I loved Sophie as if she were my own dog!

Sometimes when you feel this way, you have to just jump right in!

Although I could not find a foster to take Sophie in, I was told that her vet boards animals! It was perfect! I booked her a suite (ha) so she could get the care and attention she needed to begin her healing journey.

I try and do something that is of service each day. It can be something small, like buying a coffee for the homeless person who sits outside my local Peets, or something big like co-fostering Sophie until she finds her new home.

Whenever I take the time to help someone, I feel a genuine connection and opening of my heart chakra.

Imagine all the love and positive energy on the planet if everyone did one small thing each day to help another living being. Imagine the world we would live in! I invite you to take just a few minutes today and do something for another person (or animal!).

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. […]

A few nights ago I had a disturbing dream about my beloved cat, Josie. I came to find out that it was Josie’s way of telepathically telling me that she wasn’t feeling well. She had a bladder infection and I needed to take her to the vet for antibiotics! All living things are connected by […]

Creating from your Soul instead of your Ego

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 […]
