PUPPY LOVE...TO THE MAX
Mom had been looking for a canine companion for quite a while before we found Max. He’s an adorable poodle mix, and she fell in love with him right away. He was really cute at first, but quickly became very tiresome. He nipped and jumped constantly, and when we even looked at the front door, he'd get so distressed he’d whine and race around sure we were leaving him for good. Max had already had one home and unless he changed dramatically he was going to have to find yet another. Mom was so worried, she didn’t want to loose her sweet new baby.
I’d worked with Cathleen on a few different issues, and remembered her saying she loves working with pets and their owners. Cathleen came over for a home visit, and to say we were impressed and happy is an understatement. As we sat there, my Mother describing how rambunctious and overly energetic Max was, Cathleen asked if she could begin working directly on him. We sat there astonished as within just a few minutes, Max was sitting at her feet, panting hard as he began to relax, but not even straining to get away!
Cathleen began speaking to Max as she tapped along the back of his head and down his spine, telling him what a good puppy he was but that this behavior “wasn’t fun” for us and that he had to stop it and be “polite” now. We were amazed to watch him yawn and relax even more as with each new round of suggestions he seemed to begin to understand her ever word.
Having had sessions myself, I realized that he was yawning just as I was prone to do, and Cathleen explained this was one of the normal energy shifting release signals. It made total sense and I understood what was going on with Max, as I know from my own experience that as I tap along with the scripts Cathleen gives me in session I begin to shift around, yawn and relax as the old, negative thoughts and feelings leave and we install new, positive ones.
Pretty soon, Cathleen wasn’t even holding Max he was just sitting there comfortably at her feet, a sight we never expected to witness, or at least not so quickly. At this point, we began to discuss Max’s history and Cathleen began to incorporate what we were telling her into the conversation she was having directly with Max. He’d been given away and lost his home, so she would tap on his fear of being left alone, and his other insecurities.
One of the most frustrating things we encountered with Max was our inability to get his attention. Boy were we chagrinned when Cathleen pointed out that Max probably didn’t realize his new name was permanent!
He’d originally been called Snowflake, but Mom had decided that was too girly a name, so we changed it to Max. Cathleen continued to tap while asking Max if it would be okay for him to be called Max instead of Snowflake, and other things like that if he would be good that ours was the family that wanted to love him for ever. It was very touching and heartwarming watching Max clearly understand that he was loved, had a home and that his new name would be his for the rest of his days.
After the session we sat there with Cathleen just drinking lemonade and chatting away. Max had taken a calm, proud and happy seat on the chair next to my mother. He seemed to be announcing with pride that “this is my family” and “I get to stay here,” all while being calm and very polite. Mom kept patting his head, saying “thank you Max,” and “I love you very much.” She was beaming too.
It was then that I saw it: Cathleen was starring at Max and Max was starring back directly at her. His eyes were slightly closed, as were hers, and every so often Max’s head would nod barely. If I didn’t know better, I thought, I’d say she was speaking to him. So I watched a bit longer when it finally became clear that yes, indeed they were having a conversation! I asked her what she was talking to Max about and she matter-of-factly said, “Oh, I’m just running down the list of things we cleared and installed with Max to make sure he understands and to see if he has any other fears or issues we need to clear.”
I saw it. My mother saw it. And Cathleen confirmed it. She was literally talking to our dog, and he was answering her back! She explained that the more connected she gets to an animal via the energy modalities she works with, the more she gets a strong sense of what they are feeling or thinking, almost like a conversation, just like she does with her human clients. I’ve experienced it myself, but I took it for granted during my own sessions. Actually I didn’t realize just how clear her intuition connection is until that moment when I said, “But Max is really speaking to you...he’s nodding...are you asking yes and no questions?” She really was asking him questions and he was really answering her.
Cathleen explained that while a major clearing had taken place, and things would be far different, we would still need to work with him. First, because he was still a puppy, and second because being given away like he’d been, we didn’t know all the ways he’d experience separation anxiety and trauma. But, she told us, just tap along with what you don’t like and then do it again with what you want him to do.
Since that day, we had Cathleen work on him directly one other time, as she was a guest at a home jewelry party I was having, she thought it would be a great opportunity to clear him of jumping on people and getting excited with crowds.
Once again we were astonished and incredibly pleased with the results. Cathleen asked Max to come over, and of course he did with glee as he loves her almost as much as she loves him now! They sat once again, calmly and with his cute little butt on her foot as she tapped about how polite little doggies wait to be invited to be pet, and that ladies don’t like to be made messy by well-intentioned dogs. Max sat there watching all the people and getting more and more calm, as those same people all commented on how he was indeed becoming remarkably relaxed.
When she was done, Cathleen asked one of my other guests if she’d like to have Max come visit her. She agreed, and then Cathleen asked Max to go over and say hello in a polite way...by sitting and “waiting until the pretty lady pets you...”
We all wished there was a video camera nearby...because Max stood up, gently and confidently walked over, sat down in front of my guest on cue, and awaited his very much-appreciated petting.
Max has become a beloved and cherished family member. Sweet and gentle in his nature, his manners improve all the time as he matures. The shifts were astonishing and clearly attributable to the work Cathleen did on him. And it wasn’t just the in-person work, as she’s guided us to clear some things on the phone and maintain his behavior-using EFT ourselves. We’re ever so grateful we decided to clear Max’s bad behaviors and install his gentle and helpful ones...just as Cathleen says, now we are truly enjoying our wonderful new family member...in Living Harmony.
