Who doesn’t love a good “Dog Rescue Story”?
Last spring I was overwhelmed by an intense knowledge that a dog was heading my way. These “insights” have been an integral part of my life since my Reconnection. I have learned to listen carefully and pay attention. So I was a bit surprised when this knowledge entered my consciousness. He hadn’t been looking for a dog; I love dogs and have had many dogs in my life in the past, but had basically given up on the idea that I would have one in my life in 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 locate her. Due to my recent thoughts, I knew instinctively that I needed to reach out. This required some courage on my part because the only person I knew who had the coach’s contact information was someone with whom I had chosen to break communication. I was going to have to put on my big girl pants and text her. The next hurdle would be convincing my husband that “we” wanted a dog.
We finally met Molly and took her home. Molly is a 6 year old maltipoo and she is as cute as she looks. But Molly was not feeling well. Molly was abandoned by her previous family due to aggression, extreme anxiety, and basic antisocial behaviors. She came with a BAG full of medications including Prozac, Xanax, Trasadone, and pancreatitis medications, to name a few. OH BOY, what had I gotten myself into?
I have not been trained in The Reconnection Animals, but I am a Foundational Reconnective Healing Practitioner and a Certified Reconnection Practitioner, so my first instinct was to simply sit with her on the frequencies of healing. It has been 4 months since Molly joined our family and we are so blessed by her presence in our lives. She has stopped taking all medications and is no longer displaying anxiety or aggressive behaviors. Molly is playful, happy, and BALANCED! Now when I see the stickers on a one-legged car that say “Who Rescued Who”, it has tremendous meaning. We saved Molly and Molly saved us.
The moral of this story is that you trust your inner knowing and know that everything can return to balance.
