The name “Healing Animal Truths” comes from my desire
to dispel the myths many people believe about animals. From an early
age, I was told things about animals that I knew in my heart just
couldn’t be true.
I was told things such as: • Animals don’t have feelings • Animals are dumb • Animals can only understand one word commands • We’re the ones who take care of animals • Animals cannot recover from the traumas they have experienced
I knew in my heart and have learned from experience that none of those things are true.
the work I do with animals and their guardians, I want to make sure
people know those things are not the truth, and I want them know what
IS true about animals, therefore, my mission is to “heal animal truths.”
What I know for sure is:
Animals do have feelings and they feel very deeply. In fact, often
times, the physical and behavioral issues they have are, in part, a
result of the emotions they experience and the interactions they have
with those around them. I have learned that when their feelings are
acknowledged and shared with their owners, when there is clear
communication, physical and behavioral issues can and do improve.
Animals are not dumb. In fact, they are extremely intelligent. They
have an amazing ability to understand, to learn and to teach us if
we’re willing to honor what they have to offer us.
can understand full sentences. The more we talk to them and in their
presence, the more they pick up. It is similar to a baby. They may not
understand language when they are first born, but over time, their
vocabulary grows the more they hear people speak around them. I speak
to animals in full sentences and they understand. Occasionally, they
may come across a word that they don’t understand because they haven’t
heard it before, but they have the intelligence and the capability to
pick up our language very easily.
• Animals believe it is
their job to take care of us. I think we have the model upside down.
We believe our purpose is solely to take care of our animals, but I
believe animals actually come into our lives to take care of us. They
come in with a specific mission, to help support us, or help us learn
and grow. The more opened we are to what they have to offer us, the
more we can gain from the experience of having them in our lives.
Animals CAN recover from the traumas they experience. The hurt and the
trauma they experience can get trapped in their bodies the same way it
does when we experience hurt and trauma, and those feelings can be
released from their bodies and their cells, just as they can in ours.
Animals have a tremendous capacity to heal, in part because of their
ability to love and to forgive.
Through my work with animals, as
an intuitive empath, a communicator and a Reiki practitioner, I am
attempting to help people understand the truth about animals. I
believe that if we treat animals with the kindness and respect they
deserve, they can live healthier, happier and more fulfilling lives.
for us, being fortunate enough to be partnered with these wonderful
beings, we have an opportunity to know a level of love and
understanding that we might not have known was possible and have
richer, more fulfilling relationships with our animals.
