Finding Holiday Sanity

Jacob Xmas 2014Are you someone who loves the holidays … from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day, decorates early, has presents all tied up and ready to hand out, cooks and bakes for parties, hosts parties, and is filled with the glee the entire season? Or are you someone who is filled with a little sadness or loneliness, dreads holiday shopping, would love to say no to all of the holiday parties, struggle with family gatherings, and simply wants to stay buried under the warm covers until the season is over? No matter which holiday camp you fall into, both types can suffer from holiday physical and emotional stress. So how do you maintain Holiday Sanity?

Admittedly, I am someone who loves the holiday season (I’ve been on a cookie and candy making frenzy for a few weeks!), but I’ve had my fair share of years where I was melancholy and just wanted to hold my breath until it passed. Here’s a few tricks that are tried and tested by moi and have worked to keep me balanced and sane!

For physical wellness:

Ningxia Red

  • Drink Young Living Ningxia Red everyday. I started doing this about 4 months ago and I now cannot imagine a day without it. You will have energy and your body will feel great. When you’re not eating right or having long and busy days, this can keep you balanced.
  • Young Living DiGize and Peppermint oils are great after a big meal. Apply to your abdomen or ingest a few drops in a capsule.
  • Young Living Thieves and R.C. oils will help you stay strong during winter. And Thieves cleaner will keep your home naturally clean without toxins!
  • Put a Clear Quartz crystal in a glass of water, sit it in a window sill and let the sun infuse the water with the crystal’s energy. At the end of the day, or first thing in the morning, drink the water. Then refill the glass everyday. Clear Quartz is known as the Master Healer!
  • Take a good probiotic to help keep your internal system balanced. I love Young Living’s Life 5 probiotic.
  • Try on a green smoothie for breakfast that is filled with green vegetables! This will help you after too much eating the day before.
  • If you have less time for exercise, make sure that you at least do a little more walking during the day (take the stairs rather than the elevator) and do some stretching/yoga before bed.

For emotional wellness:

Believe

  • These essential oils are uplifting, inspiring and help you stay balanced during chaos: Young Living’s BelieveJoy, Neroli, Oola Balance, and Transformation are a few of my favorites.
  • Wear or carry citrine crystals for a pick-me-up vibration. Citrine exudes happiness and carries the sunny energy of the sun! These are also excellent to place in a glass of water and let the sun infuse the crystal into the water for drinking.
  • Put it in your calendar that you absolutely will, without exception, find quiet time (aka meditation) for at least 5 minutes everyday. This will absolutely keep you grounded and centered.
  • Schedule an energy healing or massage session for yourself to help work out the physical kinks and emotionally energize your spirit.
  • Focus on the good that is around you. Whenever you begin to feel stressed, stop and think of 5 things that you’re grateful to have in your life.
  • Play music that inspires you. This could be classical music or 80’s punk rock! And if the music moves you, dance it out! You will feel amazing afterwards.

And do not forget that your pets can struggle during the holidays too. Check out my blog about how to have a Happy Healthy Holiday Pet. And remember, whether you are surrounded by a big crazy eccentric family or living alone, a daily practice of gratitude (when you wake up and before you fall asleep) will help you enjoy the the season.

Happy Holidays to all of you and I look forward to connecting even more in 2015!

Why do we wait until all else fails?

Which camp do you fall into:

(1) I have never tried any natural healing method;
(2) I tried natural healing after traditional medical methods failed; or
(3) I found natural healing methods before I felt ill or too stressed and it is now a part of my life.

Natural healing means any modality that typically does not include pharmaceuticals, surgery or invasive procedures (such as chemotherapy). It can include acupuncture, affirmations, crystal energy, energy healing, essential oils, exercise, herbal supplements, meditation, yoga, and more to help balance the body/mind/spirit. Natural healing js complimentary and works alongside traditional medicine.

So let’s back to the questions above. If you fall into Camp #3, good for you! When you embrace natural healing, you may prevent a serious ailment and may find that you are more balanced to handle the stress of everyday living. When you take a break from natural healing (due to travel, or over working) that is when you usually notice that you feel worse. That has certainly happened to me. That’s when you know that it is working.

If you fall into Camp #2, do you wish that you had found natural healing before something happened? I meet too many people and pet owners who wish they had found natural healing before it was too late. Too often the ailment has progressed too far to turn the situation around. Natural healing at that point simply provides comfort and relaxation.

What if you fall into Camp #1? What is stopping you from trying a natural method to keep you healthy and well? Here are a few reasons that I have heard over the years:

  • Insurance won’t pay for it. Most insurance does not cover natural healing right now, but the more people that are using it, the more likely that could change. When you invest upfront in your health, you spend less on medicine and doctor’s visits in the long run. And when you can replace some or all of your medicine cabinet with natural remedies, you may find that you save money too.
  • I want scientific proof that it works. There is a growing body of research supporting natural healing methods. But I often wonder who first decided that we should have proof that something works? Why would we allow a complete stranger to tell us that something works (that’s giving away our free will). Our ancestors did not need federally-funded National Institutes of Health studies over a 10 year period telling us that meditation reduces stress. So take a leap of faith and believe that something without requiring proof (and you will be pleasantly surprised then when it does work).
  • How do I know it will work? Well, it won’t work if you do not believe or even try it, right? And with traditional medicine, there is no guarantee that it will work either.

We live in a world filled with toxins, pollution, chemicals, technology, and depleting natural resources. We are surrounded by junk that our bodies were not built to defend against. It’s easy to enter the blame game and point fingers at the government, big industry and others for our failing health. But our health is solely in our own hands. Now instead, imagine that you begin to flood your body and mind with natural remedies: meditation to relax the mind; Reiki to relax the body; essential oils to penetrate the cells, awaken and soothe the senses; acupuncture to release energy blockages; yoga to gently energize the body, and so on. Now how does that feel?

We are all responsible for our own health. Limiting your options or intentionally putting on blinders to something “new” or “different” will only harm you.

Just one more question …. what are you waiting for?

Conversations are Changing

There has been a lot of conversation in recent years about the energy shift and how this process of moving into the Age of Aquarius is helping us to evolve as a society. The shift is slow and has likely been happening since the late 1980’s. Although it feels in past few years that it has picked up speed. Many people panicked when December 21, 2012 (the end of the Mayan calendar) approached; yet the feared Armageddon did not happen.

So how do we know that this shift is really happening? I know without a doubt that it is happening simply by watching present conversations that were not happening in the past. For example:

  • In 2005, the movie “The Secret” discussed the ancient Law of Attraction and became a popular movie thus making this little-known Law known to most people and spun off countless books, training programs and even Law of Attraction coaches (like me!).
  • In July 2013, Dr. Oz featured crystal sonic therapy on his daily show and discussed the numerous benefits of sound healing through crystal singing bowls which was experienced by Dr. Oz and several audience participants.
  • On April 14, 2014, national news outlets covered the Blood Moon, full moon lunar eclipse because people were fascinated by the appearance and the spiritual meaning of the event.
  • On April 16, 2014, Valerie Harper announced that she was cancer-free. She shared that she does not let other people’s opinions (such as a doctor telling her that she has “terminal” cancer) impact how she lives her life. Although she later admitted that she is not fully cancer-free, her cancer stopped growing and she is living her life as if she is cancer-free. She credits her positive outlook on life. That concept is one of the teachings in the Law of Attraction.
  • As a society we are much more aware of how we treat animals, the plight of food/farm animals, and including pets during disaster plans and evacuations. When I think back 10, 15 and 20 years ago, issues about the welfare of animals was not a common occurrence on national news and not on the consciousness of mainstream America. Now it is a daily occurrence. This is part of the shift into oneness and compassion for all living beings.
  • Just last week, ABC ‘s Nightline featured a story about a goat who was despondent when he was rescued from a hoarding situation and his donkey friend was sent to a different rescue. Isn’t that amazing that national news is now featuring prime time stories about the feelings of animals? Check out the story!
  • When I share that I am an energy healer, most people respond by saying “like Reiki?” Moreover, Reiki is now mainstream in many hospitals, particularly in oncology departments and is even helping wounded warriors.

Elestial soul pathThe energy shift is causing more people to grow curious about acupuncture, angels, astrology, crystals, near death experiences, past lives, psychics, spirit guides, tarot, and so on. People are hungry for information about things that are non-physical and cannot be seen. If you search on Facebook, you can find hundreds of pages that are spiritual/healing in nature with extensive followers.

Another result of the energy shift is that more people are finding passion in these subjects and even starting businesses that are spiritual or healing. When people embrace the spiritual/healing side of their nature, take action, and share what they know, they shine a light out to the Universe that benefits all. The more people that shine their light, the more the energy shift will continue to unfold in a positive way.  I believe this is why the energy shift has not been the cataclysmic event that many people predicted. When more people are shining their spiritual light, it shifts the energy in a more positive way. This particular issue was discussed in Gregg Braden’s book called Fractal Time (which is really worth reading)!

I encourage you to take notice of how conversations on the national scene and even in your own life are shifting. It is really a beautiful thing to watch when you take a moment to notice and see how far we have come.

The Joy of Essential Oils

Essential oil storageI have been fascinated by essential oils for over 15 years; but it’s only been in the past year or so that I have studied them, worked extensively with them (on myself, my cats and my clients) and seen the amazing healing power they hold. Over the years I have enjoyed many different brands of essential oils: oils that are intended to scent a home, oils that are intended to be inhaled or mixed with a carrier oil for placement on the skin, and oils that are 100% pure therapeutic-grade.

Currently I am working exclusively with Young Living oils because of the purity of the oils and the education that they have provided me about the science and art of working with oils. Here’s what I have learned about Young Living oils that I love:

  • Essential oils do not accumulate in the body
  • Essential oils are more potent than herbs and travel through the body quickly
  • Essential oils have an energy frequency that can raise or lower your vibration (Rose is the highest frequency at 320 MHz)
  • 100% pure therapeutic-grade oils can be placed directly on the skin, can be used with animals, can be ingested, and do not expire
  • Essential oils help to reduce stress, to calm the body, and even help you balance/grow emotionally and spiritually

My favorite way to work with the oils is to diffuse them. As I write this, I am diffusing Clarity to help me think clearly as I write. Here are some of my other favorite oils to diffuse:

  • Bergamot, Grapefruit & Lime – excellent spring/summer scent
  • Envision & Highest Potential – when I am creating
  • Grounding – when I feel antsy
  • Joy – when I feel blue
  • Peace & Calming – when I need to relax
  • RC – when I need to support my immune system
  • Release – when I need to let the day go

Diffuser - spring oilsWhen I was on extensive travel in March and April, I ingested Thieves oil to support my immune system during an exhausting time. I also like to place oils in a spritzer bottle with water to spray work places and hotel rooms to clear the energy.

With animals, a drop of oil can be rubbed on the fur down their spine or on the bottom of their paws. When my cat Jacob first came to me two years ago, he was afraid of certain noises. After a few month of rubbing Valor (an oil of courage) down his back, his fear disappeared and has not returned.

I will be sharing more information about essential in the weeks and months to come as I will be attending the Young Living 20th Anniversary Annual Convention at the end of this month!! If you want to learn more about essential oils and how they can help your physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing, and how they help animals, check out my Facebook page on weekends where I discuss essential oils! And if you are interested in becoming a Young Living distributor where you can purchase oils at reduced cost regardless of whether you sell them, I would be happy to sign you up!

Healing for Horses

Me with horse
Session with Amigo

In all of my energy healing classes, I incorporate a hands-on practice session for my students. They either practice on each other, or in the case of animal healing courses I have them practice on animal volunteers. Usually those volunteers are my cats, the dog of a friend, or the amazing horses at a nearby therapeutic horse center.

For my Reiki for Animals class, the students get to practice on my cats and horses. I want them to sense the different energy between horses and cats/dogs. Horses are so amazingly expressive when we work with them; we receive clear messages from them (intuitively, yet it is like the horses are speaking to us). They are great at showing us physically what needs energy and what needs releasing. Since it is difficult to explain what that looks like, I created a short video from the Reiki for Animals class this past weekend. We worked with 4 horses and all were great teachers for us. Two in particular are in the video to showcase the beautiful healing responses that they shared.

Permission for energy healingAs with any healing, it is crucial that you receive permission before offering energy healing to any animal (or person). Read my blog about that! I also feel that it is important to receive training on how to properly and safely offer energy healing to animals. Offering energy healing to animals is quite different than people. This is why I have several classes on how to do this: Crystal Healing for Animals, Integrated Energy Therapy for Pets, and Reiki for Animals.

Enjoy the video and all that horses can teach us! And if you want to see other videos of how animals enjoy energy healing, check out my YouTube page where I have 13 videos on animal healing!

Watch those hands: sending energy healing

Lucy crystal classIs it ethical to send energy healing to a person or animal without their permission? This is a very sensitive topic for some healers. No matter where you look these days, you will encounter stories of people and animals who are suffering, hurt, in harms way or passing.

It is natural for a healer to want to send healing during times of suffering. This is a compassionate, empathetic response that is normal. Good intentions are admirable and much needed in this world. But it is important to look to your energy healing training on any ethical guidelines that you received. For most modalities, permission from the energy healing recipient is required. It is actually considered a violation of our ethical standards to send healing to anyone (person or animal) without permission. Why? A doctor, accountant, or other professional would not provide a service without permission, right? The same goes true for energy workers. But most important, the energy that you send could end up interfering with any healing work that they may already be doing and may not be in the person or animal’s highest good.

So how do you ask permission?

  • If the person is with you, just ask!
  • If the person is at a distance and you can contact them, ask for permission!
  • If the person is at a distance and you do not know them to ask permission, meditate and quiet your mind, look at their photo (if you have one) and mentally send them a question asking if they would welcome some healing energy. The first thing that comes to mind is their answer. If the answer is no, it must be respected. But you can certainly ask again another time.
  • If it is an animal that is with you, follow the same procedure above. Quiet yourself, sit with the animal, ask them (out loud or in your mind) if they would welcome healing. Listen for an intuitive answer or watch to see if they move towards you. If they move away or give a clear signal that they do not want healing, always respect it and stop. You can always try again later. Never ever force energy healing on an animal … that is absolutely an ethical no no!
  • If the animal is at a distance or you do not know, quiet your mind, focus on their photo (if you have one) and follow the same procedure above to see if you get an intuitive answer. Only if you get a signal to proceed should you offer healing.
  • If any any point you do not get a clear answer or are uncertain, be cautious and do not send healing.

In some modalities, such as Integrated Energy Therapy (an angelic healing), you can send healing without permission and the energy will be stored for the person or animal and when they are ready to receive it, that is when it will arrive for them. Permission for energy healing

We all want to help and it can be heartbreaking to watch others in pain. But we must avoid sending energy when it’s not welcomed. So before you activate that glorious healing, stop, ask permission, and only send if you receive a clear verbal, physical, or intuitive message to proceed.

Happy Healing!

Power of the Purr

PurrrrThis blog is dedicated to my cat peeps! Did you know that a cat’s purr is healing? Yes, you heard me …. a cat’s purr is healing!

If you have ever enjoyed the company of a feline, you have invariably been lured into a smile simply by the sound of their purr. That little rumbling motor that seems to consume a cat’s entire body and often makes them vibrate with happiness. This purr has healing ability!!! (Don’t stop reading because I’m going to get a little sciencey on you!)

Most people can agree that sound is very healing, right? Many of us listen to music to help us relax; we dance and exercise to music; music helps you to “get in the mood” (whatever mood you want to get into … giggle); we are mesmerized by the sound of waves rippling to shore, wind howling through the trees, and fire crackling. Even the little water fountain on my desk helps me to stay balanced throughout the day.

Purr quoteIn the book Vibrational Healing through the Chakras, Joy Gardner tells us that our bodies and emotions have a vibrational energy and are a source of electrical energy. All forms of matter (atomic and subatomic particles) vibrate; German physicist Max Planck proved this. This is what science has told us about vibration and frequency:

  • The heart has the frequency of 225 Hz
  • Brain waves vibrate at a frequency up to 200 Hz
    • Beta is waking consciousness and has a frequency of 15-40 Hz
    • Alpha is a relaxed state and has a frequency of 9-14 Hz
    • Theta is deep meditation, hypnosis, visualization and deep healing and has a frequency of 5-8 Hz
    • Delta is REM sleep with a frequency of .5 – 4 Hz
    • Epsilon is right-left hemisphere syncing and accessing great inspiration and has a frequency below .5 Hz
    • Gamma involves all senses converging for higher awareness at a frequency of 40-100 Hz (this involves shamanic/mystical experiences)
    • Lambda is the state of ecstasy and is up to 200 Hz
  • The Earth vibrates at 7.83 Hz. This is because lightening can circle the circumference of the Earth 7.83 times in one second, thus this is the charge for the Earth. There are 1000 lightening storms every second to keep this rate consistent. When our body can vibrate at that rate, we experience healing. Healers and mystics typically have a frequency of 7.8 Hz.

We know that light, sound, smell, plants, foods, essential oils can all be measured in frequencies. Our skin, sense of smell and taste are sensitive to frequencies of vibration. And when we have physical and emotional ailments, our body vibrates at a lower rate. Good stuff, eh?

Animal sounds have a frequency. Whale and elephant sounds resonate at a frequency of 15-35 Hz (which can stimulate alpha brain activity). Dolphins have a frequency of 3-500 Hz (the clicking sound) and 2000-80000 HZ (for their whistles). And (drum roll please) …. a cat’s purr has a frequency of 25-150 Hz.

purrfect heart

A cat’s purr is within the ideal range for improving bone density and to promote overall healing and wellness. This range is also within the Gamma and Lambda frequencies. Maybe this is why cat’s often have a look of ecstasy on their face!

Cat’s purr not only when they are happy and well, but when they are ill and in pain. They purr when ill because the frequency of the purr helps them to feel better. So now imagine you are feeling under the weather, depressed, lonely, anxious, or struggling with a serious illness. One of the best healing methods (other than laughter) is to be near a cat!! This is why when you are not well, your cat will gravitate to you and be near you. They are natural healers and they know that their mere presence (or should I say, purrsence) will help you! I have experienced this on countless occasions where my cats lay on my bed, encircling me, when I do not feel well. That is the ultimate house call!

Let me heal youSo the next time you do not feel well (physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually), grab your cat and give them a big smooch and a hug (with their purrmission, of course). If you do not have a cat, find a friend or family member with a cat and hang out with them. Or even go to your local animal shelter to simply spend time with some homeless cats. You will feel better, and so will they!

If you want to really make your cat purr, join me for Crystal Healing for Animals on September 8th. Registration closes on September 1st (don’t miss it)!!!

I’m collecting stories of how animals help to heal us. So if you have a good story that you can share (and a photo of you with the animals), please email me!

Enjoy some purring this week!

3 reasons to take energy healing classes

I am a natural-born teacher and I love to share information with people. Whether it’s a crowded room of over 1000 people, or a small class of two people, I love to watch people’s eyes open wide when teaching resonates deep within. I especially love to create interesting classes and share innovative ideas.

So I want to share with you 3 reasons why I think you would benefit greatly from taking the energy healing classes that I offer through Manifested Harmony:

  1. When you learn about how energy works to positively and negatively impact our body (or the body of your companion animal), you can take steps to make sure that you are living in a way to help your body thrive. And when your body is healthy and vital, the rest of your life goes smoothly.
  2. When you learn a energy healing method, whether it’s Reiki, Crystal therapy, Integrated Energy Therapy, or even the teachings of the Law of Attraction, you can begin to work on yourself, your family, friends, and companion animals. You will learn techniques that you can immediately put to use!
  3. Once you open yourself to energy healing techniques, you will notice that things begin to positively shift in your life. You may feel more emotionally balanced, you will have less fear and doubt, you will see the good in people/situations, and you will appreciate all that you have with more gratitude (which will then bring more to you to be grateful about). Life will be better!

So to help everyone take a small teensy weensy step into the world that I like to call vibrational healing, I have created an afternoon class called Introduction to Vibrational Healing. For only $49 (a small investment in your well-being), you can learn about different energy healing techniques. The class is being held in Alexandria, VA on June 15th! If you don’t live in the area, don’t worry because I will also offer the class online later in the summer.

Or if you’re ready to dive in, these classes are already on the calendar:

May 5 = Basic Integrated Energy Therapy (deadline to register is this Sunday!!!)

May 19 = Integrated Energy Therapy for Pets (Basic is a pre-requisite)

June 8 = Intermediation Integrated Energy Therapy (Basic is a pre-requisite)

July 13 = Reiki Level One

July 14 = Reiki for Animals (Reiki Level One is a pre-requisite)

August 24 = Crystal Healing Basics & Grids

September 8 = Crystal Healing for Animals

If you work or volunteer with animals, you can receive 20% of your registration fee. With each class, you will receive practical hands-on session experience, a detailed workbook and a certification of completion. Each class is really fun, packed with information, and you will feel amazing spending a day with healing energy.

Taking an energy healing class is a wonderful investment in your well-being and those around you. I hope to see you in class soon!!

Saving lives: Healing energy is not just for people!

Rexy

If you have a family pet or have ever worked with animals, you know that animals have feelings and can suffer physical and emotional pain just like us. Animals are also sensitive to the energies in our world. As such, they can suffer from electromagnetic stress (from electricity, computers, TVs, etc.) bombarding their energy field, as well as human emotions that may be overbearing. For pets, they often cannot escape these energies and can develop physical and emotional ailments as a result. And for homeless and shelter pets, they may suffer emotional stress from past physical or emotional trauma. If they find a loving home, the transition may be difficult or traumatic because they are so sensitive to energies (particularly in a new home). Cats, in particular, do not do well with change. Energy healing can help in these situations.

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of helping a shelter kitty move to his new home. Rexy (who is now about 6-7 years old), spent 3-1/2 years being fed as an outdoor stray in a trailer part. When his feeder went to jail and then was being evicted from his trailer, some kind ladies brought him to King Street Cats (where I have volunteered since 2004) in January 2010. This could have been Rexy’s first indoor home. At first he was terrified and confused. He would scratch the glass windows as if he wanted to go outside. Eventually he informed several communicators that he was home and he did not want to leave. To him, living at a free-roaming cat orphanage was as best as it would get. And for many of the volunteers, we wondered whether he would ever be adopted because he would actively shun the attention of potential adopters.

Fast forward 2-1/2 years where Rexy went to his new home yesterday. He has a mom, a dad and two feline siblings, Patches and Jasmine, who also came from King Street Cats (they were friends at the orphanage). His new family could not stop thinking about him and since he was friends with Patches and Jasmine, it seemed like the perfect home for all. Because Rexy had never been outside of our cat orphanage (the veterinarian visited on-site to give his annual vaccinations), we started preparing so that the energy placing him into a carrier and during the move would be calm and gentle.

The start of Rexy’s big adventure

It started with his new mom visiting him at the past few weekends to tell him he was coming home. We then made special arrangements on how to put him a carrier which was miraculously done without trauma or incident. It was like Rexy knew he was going home (even though he had never had a home). He was then handed over to me where I put him in my car, played soothing music (thank you Barry Manilow), placed crystals on his carrier (Smokey Quartz and Black Tourmaline), offered him Reiki, and sat with him for a short wait while his family arrived.

His family then took him home and I followed. My purpose was to offer energy healing to Rexy to help him adjust to being in, quite possibly, his first home. I was also there to help Patches and Jasmine. Rexy was placed in his own room (that had a glass screen door) and all three kitties initially hid. After an hour, I felt that the energy had been offered and accepted by all three cats. It was then time to let the energy do its work and let the cats adjust.

Patches and Jasmine welcoming Rexy

Within an hour, Patches was out exploring and checking out the room where Rexy was placed. Then Jasmine was exploring, too. And within 24 hours, all were at the glass window welcoming their old friend. When ready, Rexy has a beautiful crystal charm for his collar from AuraDog!

The introduction of a new pet to a home is a critical stage to be sure the pet feels secure, happy and loved in the home (and for existing pets, too). Cats are typically not good with change. And in this situation with Rexy encountering many firsts in his life (carpet, an indoor home, loving parents), I know that energy healing helped Rexy and his feline siblings feel good about the change.

Energy healing for pets is so important, and is often not considered, misunderstood or dismissed as unimportant. For those pets in shelters who may be suffering the aftermath of physical or emotional abuse/trauma, it can mean the difference between life (adoption) and death (because the pet is not showing well to be adopted). Like Rexy, energy healing can help with the transition to a new home; like Patches and Jasmine energy healing can help with the arrival of a new family member (pet, baby or spouse). For pets who are encountering physical or emotional/behavioral issues, energy healing (alongside veterinary care) can help the pet resolve the issue and stay at home rather than be surrendered to a shelter or simply tossed outside to fend for itself. For pets who have undergone surgery or a physical injury, energy healing can help speed the healing process (and can be beneficial for veterinary staff to learn).

With over 10,000 pets per day being euthanized in American animal shelters, energy healing is a simply way to help.

What Pets Teach Us

Last Friday (February 24th), I said goodbye to my Sammy Jammy. He was at 14 years old and had been declining from kidney failure for the past few years. Sammy came into my life on March 2, 2000 from an animal control shelter in Michigan. We truly chose each other. I gave him a loving home filled with everything he wished for; he was my heart and forever will be. He passed one week shy of our 12th anniversary. I will still honor him on our anniversary.

Sammy was my talker who always greeted me with a “monroe” or “mwow”, and he always wanted to burrow into my lap. When he was happy, his nose dripped and he cooed like a dove; and when we cuddled, he would bury his head into me. As his inevitable death was nearing the past 6 months, I spent a lot of quality time sitting with him, reading, meditating, and watching movies (he particularly liked Harry Potter movies). Despite the demands of my work and many projects, I put much on hold in order to be with Sammy and I’m grateful that I did. I did not expect him to live to Christmas, but he seemed determined to hang on.

Although I am coping with his loss (as are his cat siblings Oscar and Lucy), I am taking comfort in the countless lessons that I learned from Sammy. Pets teach us so much if we simply take the time to listen and learn. Pets teach us kindness, compassion, generosity, and love. I truly believe that Sammy held on longer than expected because he had lessons to teach me (and he needed to make sure those lessons stayed with me).

What were those lessons?

• Be a human being, not a human doing. I tend to work too much, especially work to help animals. When Sammy started declining last October, he taught me to stop working at dinnertime. No matter what was left to be done, it could wait for the next day. So each evening, Sammy and I (and his siblings) spent time together. That is one lesson that I know he wanted me to understand and I will continue in honor of Sammy.

• Be present; recognize and appreciate all that is around you rather than going through life at a fast pace. Animals live in the present; they do not get wrapped in what happened in the past (which cannot be changed) or what may come in the future (which may not materialize). When you live in the present, you can marvel in miracles and messages that unfold around you.

• Be quiet and still. This helps you to hear your inner voice and the guidance it will provide. Slowing down will help you recalibrate to a healthy vibrational energy so that you feel better. Slowing down helps you to match your energy to your pets (who are always emitting nonjudgmental and unconditional loving vibrations).

• Be joyful, and do not worry. Pets don’t worry and they are always happy to see their family. They live with the understanding that each day is a gift, for you never know what will happen the next day.

• Speak your truth. Sammy was a Siamese who conversed with a beautiful voice. He never hesitated to tell me what he wanted, which was usually “sit down so that I can lay in your lap.” When you speak your truth, you are authentic. And being authentic is important to living your best life.

• Sunshine is healthy. Sammy always found a space on the couch where the sun would radiate upon him. Sunshine is a vital life force for the planet and all beings. Enjoy the sun each day that it is present.

• Share your heart with those who will cherish it, whether human or animal.

The lessons that Sammy taught me are countless and have left pawprints on my heart. I hope that I will do him proud by practicing what he taught me for the rest of my life. I share his teachings with you because they are important for all human beings to slow down, be present and enjoy this life we have been given. You taught me well Sammy. Rest in Peace my little angel.
