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!

How much do we know without knowing it?! And when we DO know that we know.. why do we doubt?!

You would be amazed what the mind knows. If you ask for answers on a particular topic, your mind will deliver them for you – although admittedly – not always in the way that you expect. Some people meditate for answers, some ask their mind a question, go and do something else, then  have a ‘brainwave’ a few hours later. There are a lot of ways to access the things that we know, but don’t always know that we know!

In our Multi-Dimensional Healing practice we work with intuition all the time. We are constantly asking questions; where to start a session,  where a problem originates in the body, when do we start and stop doing a particular technique, and which technique is best?

I have now had so many affirmations that my intuition was correct that I could fill several books. So I should be completely confident right? Well… no not quite. And I think this is the case for many people. It is hard to allow ourselves to trust the information.  When something pops up that the logical mind does not expect, it is easy to dismiss it as a mistake or distrust it. What we need to do, is go with it and see where it leads.

As someone who has “heard voices” pretty much all my life, I am used to intervention on a daily basis! 😉 However, I didn’t always listen. It has taken time and experience to show me that every time I dismissed the advice and decided it wasn’t right, I have been wrong! So there has been a gradual learning curve over time where these particular ‘voices’ are concerned.

A typical scenario would be this. I’m in Tesco. I need an onion. A voice in my head says – Get three. I think about it logically and realise that no, I only need the one onion so I buy one onion. When I get home I realise that actually I had another meal planned for the next day which needed two more onions. This kind of thing has happened again and again over the years.

Eventually you learn to listen to voices that say ‘buy three onions’ or ‘go into that shop’. You don’t need anything from ‘that shop’ and you can’t think of anything you would want to buy from it at this point. But if you’re sensible, you go in anyway and look about. If you are going with the flow, you will be drawn to a particular spot where, lo and behold, there IS something you didn’t know you needed or had forgotten you wanted; something that would be useful to you in some way.

Whereas I do actually believe in angels/guides, whatever you want to call them and do believe that they are ready to help me out, I am unsure as to whether this help extends to the number of onions I need for the evening meal! 😉 I mean, you know – so they’re there to help – but helping with the shopping?? It does seem rather frivolous!

We can’t be sure, but I think there may be a simpler explanation. The brain has the capacity to store unlimited amounts of information, but for our sanity, some of that information gets put on the back burner, leaving us space to think about what is most relevant at the time. Some part of your mind, however, knows exactly how many onions you need, even if it isn’t information that is consciously available.

 

 

When you are at the supermarket considering your onions – or onion! – the part of your mind that knows you need more, will light up and try to communicate what it knows. In my case I am used to hearing a voice in my head, giving me advice, so that is the way my mind produces the information. Other people might get a niggly feeling that there is something they haven’t remembered, or one onion might seem ‘wrong’ somehow.

These sensations are because although your logical mind tells you ‘one onion’, another part of you knows it is three! And yes, you could go mad and buy a bag anyway! But I’m cautious about buying too much, as I don’t like waste and I try to be careful with my pennies. Hence the 1 onion, 3 onions dilemma!

Your dilemma might be different – do I need one diamond ring or two?! 😉Trust your subconscious however, because it really knows stuff! So if you hear a voice in your head or start feeling an urge to buy BOTH  those rings – then pay heed – your mind might be trying to tell you something!

To be honest, even as a seasoned practitioner, I still experience doubt, and sometimes argue back, when my intuition is trying to tell me something. So don’t be put off. It’s quite normal. The logical part of your mind will always go on ‘trying to be helpful’! That’s just what it does. The key is to ignore it and keep on trusting your inner knowing – you will be surprised at the results.
