If this has happened to you, this is a familiar story. You feel off, weird... not yourself. You are air headed and anxious with a brain that won't slow down. You think you know what is wrong. You are ungrounded! You've been here before, right? You know what to do. Perhaps you grab a dark crystal or slip into a sea salt bath. Maybe you kick off your shoes and head outside to connect your bare feet to earth. Maybe you meditate and perform some energy work to try to balance that root.
Work, right? We all need income but it can so hard to thrive in toxic or hectic work environments. If you are coming home at the end of the day feeling completely wiped out, combative and emotionally exhausted, these tips are for you!
When I was 11 years old, I won a ride in a hot air balloon. 30 years later I am reflecting on how I allowed a negative experience to overshadow all of the wonder of the ride. It is a good life lesson to me.
“So, I looked through your records…” My new doctor began, “And I don’t see any record here of a mammogram.”
“No, there isn’t one.” I admitted hesitantly, with a knot in my stomach. “I have never had one.” She didn’t know it, but she was keying in on one of my biggest fears. The big C. Breast cancer, or any mention of it. I am an expert at avoiding this topic. I braced myself for what I knew was coming.
“That is not acceptable. You are 41 and counting. Your mother died from breast cancer..."
I have heard this so many times in animal communication sessions. Your dogs and your cats for that matter, hate your phone. It is no accident when they knock it on the floor or nudge out of your hands.
Recently, when a dog told me this, I asked him if it was because his companion was paying more attention to their phone than they were to him. I was a little surprised by his answer.
My husband has been longing to make a mini pig a part of our family for a long time. A really long time. I have held out for years, but recently decided that now is the time. Finally, we picked our baby up from the breeder last week.
She is 7 weeks old. She weighs 2 lbs. She is just tiny and adorable. And sassy, demanding and opinionated! It is as if we have a newborn baby on our hands. In fact, we do! Her name is Fiona, because she is a bit like living with an ogre.
Life is ever changing, of that we can be sure. In our human minds, it is easy to justify changes, as we think in a series of consequences. Moving, changes in jobs, routines, divorces, etc. are all things that can cause a lot of upheaval in our lives.
As an animal communicator, I often see pets suffering through changes with a great deal of confusion. If you have animal companions, these changes can have a profound effect on them.
In animal communication work I frequently work with families whose animals are experiencing behavior issues. One of the most common things I see are bored and confused cats and dogs who are trying to establish their role in the family dynamic. Just as you need purpose in your life, they do as well. Sometimes our pets will assign themselves jobs that are less than helpful.
Recently, I worked with a family who is cat had suddenly started leaving surprises on the rug instead of in his box...
Have you ever noticed that people who don't like animals attract them like a magnet? Any one who comes to my house who does not like animals is sure to have dogs and a cat all up in their business. I feel like they are trying to reassure them that animals are safe. I suspect that most people who claim to not like animals have had a bad experience somewhere along the way. That is so sad to me, because I know how much interacting with animals can enrich people's lives...
My son had his tonsils out last week, as well as a broken nose repair. His recovery has been rough, as you can imagine. We are doing all we can to keep his pain in check and his discomfort at bay. Pain meds are working, most of the time. Ice packs and popsicles offer some relief. He has better medicine though.
He is receiving a daily, constant dose of Vitamin Fur. The kind of medicine that can only be administered by someone of the four legged variety...
