AFFORDABLE DOGSPEAK (or catspeak/horsespeak/birdspeak)

I understand, feel, and witness daily the effect a strained economy has on the average American, a struggle that has lasted at least five years.  In the greater Ft. Lauderdale area, I pull into familiar strip malls and small shopping centers to be greeted by empty storeferonts where businesses once thrived.  Every time I have to pay another bill I emit an audible groan.  Working people have had to pull back, conserve, shop in the no-frills stores for basic necessities.  Then consider the millions who have been unemployed and under-employed, how their despair continues.

Our animal companions, to many of us, are family, and even in the most lean times, we don't compromise the well being of our family members.  But the shelters are full, and my facebook page is a growing host of photos of abandoned pets at kill shelters begging for another chance to live a life in a loving home.  It's heartbreaking.

Of course luxuries fall by the wayside as well.  Few people are willing to take a financial risk seeing an  animal communicator, holistic healer, or any  kind of intuitive (not I -- I still make sure I go to someone for semi-annual readings myself...for me this is religious necessity).   I am blessed to earn a living as a professor and not have to rely on private consultations for my main income, but I know many others whose metaphysical livelihood was the first sacrifice in this economy.

My readings are comparatively affordable, which you'll see if you do a search.  Some communicators charge by the minute and even charge for mileage and phone connections.  I've never done that, but I have created a very simple and low, low, low to no investment opportunity for those whose animals need an intuitive consultation or spiritual "tune up."  No one should find a spiritual session out of their reach.  I'm a counselor and worker, not an entrepreneur. 

I invite you to take advantage of two opportunities that will benefit both you and your animals:
       
                    1)  the FREE Distance Reiki Circle for Animals on Facebook.  We meet twice every
                         Sunday, at 9 a.m. Eastern and 6 p.m. Pacific.  Come join the group, receive distance
                         energy healings, and enjoy the support of a group of over 230  like minded people
                         from around the world.  Here's the link:
                          https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/152536941490184/?fref=ts

                  2)  $11 Mini-readings for your animals. Yeah, that's right.  $11 ( power
                        number!).  Sometimes  you have only one pressing issue or one question or concern
                       for which you need clarity, and I'm happy to do it. The $11 donation keeps my web
                       page and Reiki circle live.  This is not a profit-making venture by any means.  Here's
                       the link.  http://www.reikidogs.com/MiniReadings.html

I am a member of the virtual reiki group and would like to say a big thank you to Lisa and all the other group members. I don't know or fully understand how reiki works but the healing energy does have a very positive impact on the animals when the group concentrates their healing thoughts together for them. Sunday is now a reiki day in my calendar

God's Covenant with Animals in the Old Testament

What is our human responsibility to the earth and its non-human inhabitants? Traditional Biblical scholars would say one of master-servant and ecologists would say one of caretaker. However, using either frame, neither movement has responded in full view of the evidence presented throughout the Bible that God clearly included animals in covenantal relationships with Biblical scholars neglecting the sanctity of animals and secular environmentalists neglecting God. A closer look at the Old Testament reveals that God designed humankind’s role in relation to the animals as one of stewardship rather than domination. Traditionally religious people often cite Scripure justify a master/servant relationship between humans and animals rather than one of partnership, but deeper investigation invites us to see texts rich with references, both literal and figurative, to the partnership between humankind and the animal world. From Genesis through Prophets and Wisdom Literature, the writers of the O…

Living with an Old Dog: Every Moment a Blessing

This morning I thought my old girl, Ingrid, had died, and I was stunned as I tried to lift her head and leg and they just fell, heavy, onto the bed. I didn't even see her breathing. It felt as if there was no life in her body at all. I surrounded her with my body, thinking she was gone, calling her name.....and then she moved. :-'(. I thought, "this is the way I want you to leave," peacefully, without drama. Maybe she was practicing. I cried much of the morning. But she's still here....a blessing.

She turned 14 last week and quietly enjoyed a small birthday party attended by her two housemate dogs and three other dog friends.  She was subdued but enjoyed enough birthday treats to the point of vomiting them up onto the couch at midnight.  
She can no longer climb into the bed and anxiously paced back and forth along the foot board until I lifted all 50 pounds of her and she curled up and slept till morning.  On occasion I would awaken in the middle of the night to f…
