Who doesn’t love a good “Doggie Rescue Story”?
Last spring I was overwhelmed with an intense knowing that a dog was on its way to me. These “knowings” have been an integral part of my life since my Reconnection. I have learned to listen closely and to pay attention. So I was a bit shocked when this knowing entered my awareness. I had not been looking for a dog; I love dogs and have had many dogs in my life in the past, but I had basically given up on the notion that I would have one in my life under my current circumstances.
A few weeks later, in a casual conversation, a colleague of mine mentioned that an acquaintance of ours, who is a Dog Trainer had a rescue dog and was looking to place her. Because of my recent thoughts, I instinctively knew I needed to reach out. This took some bravery on my part because the only person who I knew that had the trainer’s contact information was someone I had chosen to break communication with. I was going to have to put on my big girl britches and text her. The next obstacle would be to convince my husband that “we” wanted a dog.
Eventually we met Molly and brought her home. Molly is a 6 year old maltipoo and is as cute as they come. But Molly was not well. Molly was given up by her previous family because of aggression, extreme anxiety and basic anti social behaviors. She came with a BAG full of medications including Prozac, Xanax, Trasadone and medication for pancreatitis, to mention a few. OH BOY what had I gotten myself into?
I have not been trained in The Reconnection Animals but I am a Reconnective Healing Foundational Practitioner and a Reconnection-Certified Practitioner, so my first instinct was to just sit with her in the healing frequencies. It has been 4 months since Molly has joined our family and we are so blessed by her presence in our lives. She is off all medications and she no longer displays any anxiety or aggressive behaviors. Molly is playful, happy and BALANCED! Now when I see the car stickers of a paw that say “Who rescued Who” it has tremendous meaning. We saved Molly and Molly saved us.
The moral to this story is, trust your inner knowing and know that all can return to balance.[ad_2]
