To wee – or not to wee (on the carpet!). The ins and outs of animal healing and healing ourselves as well!

Recently we have had to do some energy work on our cat Moo, who had a bout of illness and as a result, changed his ideas about where he would like to do his business!

While he’s not too bothered about weeing in the lounge or pooing in my study, we found it a bit upsetting to say the least! After a quick vet visit to rule out bladder infection or other physical problem, we then went to work to try and understand this delightful change of habit! 😉

Our methods when we work on a cat, as opposed to a client, i.e. a person are quite similar in lots of ways. With a person, we look for patterns on both the conscious and subconscious levels. With our cat however, that’s not quite the same, although as far as I know, he does have a conscious and a subconscious although I’m still a bit fuzzy how that works for cats! 😉

With something like this we like to talk to him to ask if there is anything he is worried about. When I say ‘talk’ I don’t mean chatting out loud of course – although there are times when that is useful and applicable. We use a method that is probably similar to that used by animal communicators. We tune into our cat’s energy, as we would with a client. Then we ask a clear question and wait for an answer – again in much the same way that we might when working on a person. I ask the question in my mind and wait for intuition/Source/my higher self to give me useful information.

So far so similar! In Moo’s case, he sometimes gives us answers such as, “I’m not recovered enough to use the litter tray. I want to. I need more time.” Which is great. However, when we asked why he suddenly decided to wee in the bedroom, we got the answer – “How would I know?!”

This is the point where we could have given up in despair, but we’ve gained a lot of experience working on Moo and have discovered something interesting. When we give an energetic message to our cat, it can be received in two ways. There is his ‘higher self’ or ‘soul’ and then there is what we call his ‘cat self’.

The cat self is instinctive in nature, it watches out for predators, chases birds or walks a certain route around the room. This said ‘cat self’ is separate from the ‘higher self’ or ‘soul’ and if you tell something to the higher self and get the message “OK, I’m happy now”, that is good, but you also have to inform the ‘cat self’ or you won’t get the changes you were looking for.

When talking to ‘cat self’ we found it communicates on a more simplistic level. Sometimes, just an emotion, picture, or one word reply, whereas ‘higher self’ can give us more detailed responses.

In this case, we deliberately tuned in to speak to ‘cat self’ and asked about the bedroom incident! Cat self communicated (in feelings/pictures) that it was feeling anxious about weeing downstairs but felt safe when we were in the room, hence the 2 a.m. bedroom wee!

Once we realised this, we were able to do some energy work on fear patterns and being safe, which we made sure was heard by cat self as well as higher self! This seems to have done the trick! – but it occurred to me that we humans also need to understand things on different levels in order for healing to occur.

When we are working on a client with a physical problem, we try to get to the root of why it is happening and make a change there. For example, when I was trying to heal my hiatus hernia I realised I needed to make the decision to move house so there was less pressure on me.

Once my body realised I was committed to making changes, it was prepared to ease up on the physical symptoms. Yay! So we always ask if the body has heard the message.

Sometimes, though, it’s not enough, the body has ‘heard’ but not ‘understood’. I’m not sure why this is, but I think it’s to do with the fact that some of our ideas and emotions exist at a very deep level so need a bit more work to shift them.

It is important to line up both responses in order to get physical change, so if something doesn’t happen and on the surface it looks like everything is lined up for success, try looking a little deeper – it may be you have a subconscious belief or feeling that is getting in the way.

Talking to the subconscious can be tricky, but if you put yourself into a relaxed state where you are not pushing too hard, you can ask questions and get answers back. They might not be what you expect – but very useful all the same – so anytime you are really struggling and cannot make sense of why, it might be time to have a little chat with your subconscious!

If at first you don’t succeed… maybe it’s more complex than you think!!

Dan and I often do work on each other, as, being human, you can imagine we have our own stuff to process, as well as helping clients process theirs! Last night we were working on a belief – well 3 beliefs actually – that were all related.

We often work on beliefs, they can be something we think on the conscious level or something we don’t think we believe which is hiding on the subconscious level. Dan’s three beliefs were subconscious but that’s not a problem so I thought I’d just do a quick bit of work on him while I had the time.

The first thing we do before we try clearing anything, is check whether there is a block. So –  lo! – there was a block, but again, no problem with that, it comes up  all the time.

The only thing was, I couldn’t shift the block, so I checked if there were any patterns underneath. There was not one, but two patterns! After a lot of energy work I finally shifted pattern no 1. “Aha!” – I thought, “pattern no 2 should shift easily now.”

No…

So after a bit of investigating I realised there was a belief under the pattern!! Yes you read that right, a block with two patterns underneath it and a belief underneath that. I should have been starting to get suspicious at this point!

But I don’t give up easily, so I went on and tried to remove the belief. Would it shift?! No it would not! And believe me we have a lot of techniques and I tried most of them during my attempts to move the block, the patterns, and the belief. Finally I had to admit defeat.

But here is the real problem. I felt like I’d failed. I felt I could have shifted things if only I’d been ‘better’ at what I do.  (I told you I was human and had stuff to process!) 😉

We then went on to talk about the issue again and discovered that quite apart from the 3 beliefs I was trying to shift, there was another one – related to the first three but deeper. It was, if you like, the root cause of the others – and it would make sense that without shifting the deeper belief, I wouldn’t be able to shift the original three.

After this revelation, I did a bit more work on the deeper belief,  and – hallelujah! – it cleared! We then decided to call it a night  – that was enough work for one day! 😉

This was a very good lesson for me – so I thought I would share it, for other therapists  – and indeed other human beings! – to ponder, with regard to the things we struggle with in life.

Perhaps, if you are trying and trying, using all your skills and intuition and you STILL don’t succeed, maybe there is something you don’t know. Maybe it is time to stand back, and detach, see what happens when you look at it from a different perspective or dig deeper into it.

It DOESN’T mean that you are not good enough, or that you have failed – it may just mean you are trying to move a rock when there is a mountain sitting on top of it! And sometimes the only way to move a mountain – even if it is a mixed metaphor  😉 – is in small bites!

Quantum Healing Event – October 12th

Well the season of mist and fruitfulness is upon us once more and all those short of something to do in the coming months should consider coming along to ‘An Introduction to the Quantum field of energy and self healing.’

If you want to know more about Sound healing, Geometric healing and healing via Bio-resonance then come along. We will also be there to give a talk and demonstration of Multi-Dimensional Healing. It should be a very interesting day.

We are looking forward to learning more about these other healing modalities and to share our own ideas which we hope will inspire people and empower them to change their lives for the better.

We will be explaining:

  • The connection between our thoughts and feelings and the physical body.
  • How and why transformation, instant and otherwise is always possible.
  • How we can get out of a place of ‘being stuck’ and access a state where something different can happen.
  • How to access a place of limitlessness and how we can use that in our daily lives.

The event takes place at Toftwood Village Hall, from 11-5 with plant-based lunch included. Tickets available from Eventbrite. We hope to see you there!

The power of imagination. What can you really do with your mind? Is daydreaming useful after all?

Most people underestimate the power of the imagination. The problem lies with the word. Imagine-ation. Imagine equals ‘not real’! Day dreaming is another word with a poor reputation. Oh – I was ONLY daydreaming. It also contains the word ‘dreaming’ which describes things not real that can only be ‘dreamed about’ – the insubstantial and unattainable.

That is, until you look at life from the quantum point of view. The fact that we are a vibrating mass of particles. Particle Physicists agree that what we think of as the Universe is 99.9999999% empty space.

This puts things in a different light. If we’re not solid and our bodies are not solid, then that sheds a different light on what our thoughts are made of. Presumably the same material – and the same goes for our dreams.

You know you can easily obtain a ‘material’ thing, such as a tin of beans from a shop. But if you realise the tin of beans is not a material object but a non-material one, that puts it on the same plane as a dream home, a dream job, a dream anything. Now you’ve levelled the playing field a bit!

In terms of ‘how’ you go about attaining those things, the Law of Attraction goes a long way to explaining what to do. If you want to read more about it, I recommend ‘Ask and it is Given by Esther and Jerry Hicks, or if you haven’t got time to read a whole book right now, try ‘Manifest your Desiresby the same authors which serves up the formula to you in illustrated bite size chunks that you can dip in and out of, or just read through, a few pages a day.

Your imagination isn’t just about the power to visualise it is also about flexibility; the ability to imagine or conceive new ideas, new routes forward, new ways of being.

So it’s okay to daydream. It doesn’t have to be ‘wasted time’, it can be productive! Your mind has so much more power than you think.

Mind over matter is a real thing, and it matters how you use it, so start focusing your mind on the things you want, rather than the things you don’t – and see what happens!

Can you predict the future? (and in that case, what are the lottery numbers for next week?!)

It’s up to you what you believe, but personally I do believe that mind is capable of moving forward and backward in time. In fact we work with timelines a lot in our healing sessions and it is very effective. Predicting the future, however, is a rather nebulous and slippery sort of deal! The reason for that is that the future isn’t a fixed state!

Although we perceive ourselves as a solid human body, we are actually a constantly changing mass of particles and our thoughts, emotions and beliefs are also in flux. From a quantum point of view, this would make predicting an ‘absolute’ future a rather risky science!

I think that there are ‘trends’ however, which makes it possible for psychics and mediums to be able to make some sort of future prediction. We are all in charge of our own destiny and we can change it anytime, but most of us plod along the same old paths, so the outcome will be more predictable.

This is my view of predicting future trends, however I don’t think that it is black and white by any means. There is a way to predict what is likely to happen, given the current trends, but at the same time other ***t goes on that is totally outside our comprehension – I am reasonably sure about that!

However, I do hold with the idea that some things are ‘set in stone’. Certainly it has rung true in my own life.

When I was younger and looking for ‘the one’ (as you do!), I met someone who ticked none of the boxes I’d set out for myself. He was a lot older (I wanted someone my age), he had no hair, (I liked long hair) and he was on the shorter side, (I liked tall men!) And it was game over! So much for my ideals! 😉

I knew from the start that there was something deeper than attraction going on. It is hard to explain but it felt like we had been looking for each other for a very long time. Despite this, we went through a very hard time right from the start. During this time, I kept getting messages from my guides (via a family medium) saying “Don’t worry, you and Bob will be together. It’s ‘set in stone’.”

Despite 5 years of incredible setbacks, challenges and trauma, being apart was never an option. So yes… I believe that was set in stone. After that, he was diagnosed with Cancer which he didn’t survive, and I am wondering now, whether that also, was set in stone.

I would jokingly say ‘Promise you’ll never get “run over by a bus” so we can always be together.’ No matter what I said, he would always say ‘what if I didn’t have a choice?’ Looking back, you can’t help wondering whether it was ‘set in stone’ and whether he could possibly have known.

Since then my life has taken many twists and turns and I feel like I have ended up exactly where I was meant to be. Some of the route might have been questionable but I am quite sure that Bob was one of those ‘fixed points’ that was always going to happen, no matter which way I went.

Some people believe that absolutely everything is mapped out for us, but that would make things very boring and predictable and fortune tellers would make a lot more money! It also takes away the idea of ‘free will’, which if this is indeed a free will Universe, would seem rather daft!

I believe there is a middle ground, that SOME, but not all things, are set in stone. If you imagine life as a map, there will be places on the map that are in bold, capital letters. Those are the places you are definitely going. How you get there is another matter. There are many paths up the mountain and it is hard to predict which one someone will take and what will happen on the way!

Given that you can predict some things though… how about Saturday’s lottery numbers?

I’m probably going to shock you now. Although I believe it might be possible to get the right numbers using the ‘yes/no’ system that we use in our practice, I’m not really comfortable with using the universal forces in that way. For me it is inextricably linked to what we do in our healing practice which is solely in order to help others rather than helping ourselves! Now, fact is, it might be absolutely fine to use that method to get the numbers (although don’t get me wrong, I think it would be quite tricky!!) but if I don’t feel right about it then it’s not going to happen. That is one universal law I’m sure of. If it doesn’t feel right to me, it won’t work well for me! So, what we can predict from here, is my odds of winning via that method have just plummeted! 😉

All those without such hang-ups however, feel free to get onto it! You could try using muscle testing to access your innate knowing – it would take some experimentation but it might work! After all, if you believe something is possible… then you are on the path to creating it! Then, if you win and you want to express your gratitude to me for helping you on your way, then just remember one thing. I really, really, like chocolate! 😉
