Dog Day Afternoon

Maybe it’s just me, but these things tend to happen mostly on a Sunday night.  Coming home after teaching Advanced Pranic Healing all weekend, before I even got to unpacking and sorting through things, my Rottweiler was obviously in need of assistance.  Apparently he’d been getting progressively sicker all day, vomiting and lethargy.  He was laying there in a pile on the floor.  No enthusiasm.  Eyelids super-droopy.  His body felt heavy, like very low vital energy.  Barely wanting to move. 

So we reviewed what we had fed him all weekend, and nothing unusual on the list.  Then we remembered on Saturday night’s walk, he was very interested in a particular shrubbery.  In fact, he was about half-way into the hedge when I realized I had no idea what he was doing in there, and pulled him out.  Apparently there was something that he had gotten into in a gastric sort of way.  Scanning his energy body confirmed that hypothesis.  The solution?  A powerful Pranic Healing session using the “Cleansing the Internal Organs” technique as well as the protocol for food poisoning.  By Monday afternoon, he was up and interested in food, ready to go for his walk with a bounce in his step!

My other dog, a Mastiff-mix, who is usually the most super-low maintenance dog – all of a sudden developed this gigantic hot spot on her abdomen.   Maybe it was a bug bite that she just went after, and it turned into a red hot scaly mess.  Chewing and licking and just generally fussing with it almost constantly.  Anyway, there it was.  What to do?

A very effective approach is to do all the physical first-aid first – washing and dressing and all that – and then the Pranic Healing technique for skin conditions.  The skin went from bright red to light red to pink within a few hours of regular sessions.  By the next day, she was leaving it alone on her own.  By Wednesday, just occasional maintenance sessions.

So yes, even though it was a Sunday night, each of these sessions took really only 15 or 20 minutes each.  Pranic Healing® is super-easy for regular people to learn and apply, with excellent results.  What’s in your toolkit?

Surgical Support – Yes, you can!

Emergency colic surgery. That phrase is enough to strike fear in the hearts of the most experienced equestrian. We can feel so helpless and the situation so far out of our control. The reality, though, is that is only partly true. There is a lot we can do to influence any surgical outcome in a positive way, whether it is a simple dental extraction or a double level anterior interbody cervical fusion. Because everything is energy, we can learn to use the tools of energy healing to support and benefit our horse before, during and after a surgical procedure.

First and foremost, space clearing is essential. Research has shown that people heal faster in an energetically clean environment. But the fact of the matter is that we don’t need research to know that positive, clear, optimistic environments are more conducive to healing. Most hospital settings, unfortunately, are full of diseased energy, negative thoughts, negative emotions, medical pessimism; and since the current medical paradigm does not acknowledge subtle energy as a factor in healing, the operating room is thick with this stuff. People who are sensitive to energy can actually feel this. When we learn how to clear a space, when we clear the operating room before and during the surgery, our horse gets a giant head start in the “success” category, even before the first incision.

Second, it is important to understand the effect anesthesia has the energetic body. The effect is significant and a primary factor in how long it takes in post-op for the horse to recover. When the energy anatomy is so far out of balance in so many aspects, the physical body’s ability to heal itself, to recover from the actual surgery, is dramatically slowed down. On the other hand, when the horse’s energy is strong and balanced coming out of surgery, his recovery is accelerated to the point where clients have reported their horse being up and around, eating and relieving within an hour after surgery. All systems “go.”

Finally, post-surgical follow up is crucial. Many horses are on stall rest for months after a surgery. This is stressful and depressing. Pranic Healing can help with the emotional stress of the recovery process, before the accumulated stress begins to contribute to another issue.

Interested in learning more? Come to my Equine Energy Healing Clinic on June 10 in Sherwood, OR. You’ll learn how to feel your horse’s energy and practice some powerful techniques to cleanse and strengthen the energy anatomy.

If instead you have a dog or cat, the Energy Healing for Pets class is June 11 and June 18 at the Oregon Humane Society.  Please RSVP on the website as space is limited.  Your pet will thank you!!

Fear Factor

When I first began working with Keene, and we were still in the “getting to know you” phase, I made the mistake of grabbing a tissue and turning towards him.  Immediately he dashed behind the two upholstered chairs, cowered and looked at me through terrified eyes.  Okay, I thought.  I didn’t get much of a history on Keene, but this was pretty clear fear based behavior.  Read More

Jilly and the Hot Spots

Jilly is a young Golden Retriever who had been receiving conventional treatment for hotspots on her neck, with absolutely no improvement after fourteen days of a topical cream.  So I got to work on her.  I found imbalances in her auric field, meridians and especially the chakra system.  As is often the case with skin disorders, the source of the issue is somewhere other than the surface of the skin.  In Jilly’s case, it seemed like it was a stress-related situation, which was impacting her body’s ability to heal the skin irritation.  In energetic terms, she had an overactive and congested Solar Plexus chakra, which was contributing to an extremely underactive Basic chakra.  The Basic chakra influences the body’s ability to create rapid healing on the cellular level, and when this chakra was underactive, that ability was slowed down almost to a standstill.  This explains a lot about why no healing was happening.

Sit. Stay. Breathe.

Working with dogs for most of my life, I have come to realize that, even though we are so different, we have more in common than I first thought. Take meditation, for example. Much of what was taught in puppy kindergarten directly translates over and informs my meditation practice. Here are some of the things I learned:

1. Start with minimal distraction.  Pick a protected place, where you’ll be able to work with minimal distraction, and set yourself up for success. Read More
