Recently I received this email:
“Today I was driving thorough the 50th & France area [Minneapolis] and I happened to be behind a car that said “AnimalBridges..” and I thought that is what I need with my dogs. And THEN I saw the license plate “Wheaten” and I said “Bingo”!! This person gets it!! So here is my story with my dogs….”
Jane was more than 20 miles from home and was behind my vehicle for only two or three blocks. She felt seeing my vehicle was the sign she was looking for to help her with her dogs.
Jane has Ginger, the 9-year old Wheaten Terrier, and Angel, the 6 1/2-year old Yorkie. Ginger and Angel were good friends until recently. In the past 6 months, Ginger became unpredictable and would attack Angel.
We talked and decided to start with an animal communication with both Ginger and Angel. Ginger told me about her fears.
Elaine: Do you feel afraid a lot of the time?
Ginger: When I don’t know what is going on I am afraid. (holding her breath)
Elaine: Ginger, please exhale. You are holding your breath. (sigh) Great. Does that feel better?
Ginger: Yes it feels better. Thank you. I will need to remember it.
Elaine: Great. Do you want help so you are not so afraid of everything? Would you like more confidence?
Ginger: Yes, yes I would like that. I’ve been afraid my whole life. I don’t know why. Can you help me?
Elaine: I will talk with Jane and we will see what we can do.
We continue talking and I changed the subject to Angel.
Elaine: Okay. During the past 6 months, you have attacked Angel suddenly and viciously. Why?
Ginger: She upset me. She is playing with my toys and I don’t like it. Then she gets all the attention. I am jealous. That is what it. I’m jealous. I’m jealous.
Elaine: Oh you have the green eyed monster – jealously. Do you know why?
Ginger: Well, Angel is cute and listen to her name. She does everything right. She is the perfect dog and I’m the trouble maker. So I guess that is the story. I am in charge and I need to tell her so. That is my story.
We talked about Ginger’s job was “to bring joy to the house.” We ended the conversation with the following.
Elaine: Do you have anything you want to tell Jane?
Ginger: Jane, I love you so much. I am so sorry that I am causing trouble and being mean to Angel. I sometimes lost control because I am really afraid. So I react to stuff that I shouldn’t. I don’t know what to do to change this. I would like some help if it is possible. Most of all Jane, I love you so much. You do so much for us. I love you. I LOVE YOU. Bye.
Elaine: Bye Ginger.
Since the conversation, Ginger has not attacked Angel! The house is peaceful except for Ginger and Angel barking at people and dogs walking by the house.
Recently I visited Jane, Ginger, and Angel for a TTouch® session to help them with the fears and barking. I’m waiting to see how everyone does. I reminded Jane to reward and comment on the “quiet” rather than the barking. “Good quiet everyone!”
