Was it really a fear issue?
K was born as a street dog in a foreign country. Her mother fended for herself as best she could but her experiences taught her to fear many humans and to fear her environment. When K’s mother disappeared when she was but 5 weeks old, K’s fears became who she was. K feared humans, even though she did get bits of food from some and since she already knew to fear her environment, she soon learned the fine art of hiding under things to keep herself safe.
K was one of the lucky ones, she was rescued and brought to Canada where her new human companion was thrilled to have her in their home as part of the family. L, K’s new Mom, felt deeply sad about K’s early life and every time she introduced K to someone, it was with a history of her hard life.
L asked me to work with K to help her with her fears. She was afraid of loud noises, afraid of people – even her new family, afraid of the car, afraid of anything new or different.
When K and I first connected, she was so frightened, she couldn’t meet me face to face. Her tail was tucked under her and she tried desperately to hide under a curtain. K was afraid of everything! K’s “mom” told me that K would often stand still trembling and shaking and, indeed, this proved true when we first connected. Even after one of my guides – Bobby – a Golden Retriever who passed in August, came to help with the session, K was unable to participate. It was Bobby who asked me to close the session because K was too fearful! The next day we reconnected and K was much better and able to participate in the session.
After K told me that she believed that fear was who she was and I impressed on her the importance of allowing her to be who she really is, we did some energy healing work. K also told me that she wished her new Mom would let go of her (K’s) past.
About a week later, K’s mom told me that she is a totally different dog – she walks proudly to the car and shows no fear of going for a car ride. She also mentioned that K is just so much better it was wonderful for the whole family! She then told me that she had stopped introducing K by citing her hard life.
Who let go? K or K’s Mom – or does it matter? It isn’t often that dramatic shifts like this occur so quickly but it is heartwarming when it does!
