Good morning! I wonder if y’all are having the same hot weather we’re having. It’s up over 100! I think mom has an idea in her head that she’d like to get me in that pool. “No way” is what I say! Then I’ll need a bath and a blow dry! I just can’t take it when my beauty is compromised.
I’ve been thinking about work today. Humans seem to be interested in what others do for work. They ask, “What do you do?” a lot and they reply, “I’m a doctor/ hair stylist/ garden designer/artist or, well you know. Hardly ever does someone ask if your work represents who you are and what you love. Canines love having jobs; it’s not work for us. We don’t like being in charge, however, if you leave us no choice… Back in the day Eli was an awesome therapy dog and worked in hospitals. He loved making special request visits and helping intensive care patients, especially kids. Another one of Eli’s favorite jobs was to open the door for mom when her arms were full with groceries. Personally, I like having the door opened for me. I have made a conscious effort not to let on that I know how to open the door. However, lately it’s been so darn hot here that if mom leaves me out too long I have to open the door and get inside or I’ll just wilt. I’ve worked things out so that she thinks she’s left the door open a little. HA! Gotta love brains and beauty!!! I just hope she doesn’t notice or I’ll end up with a new job description!
Mom loves what she does. She helps people shift their energy and create the changes they want to make in their lives, from small ones to big ones. One of the first things mom asks a client is this…”If I had a magic wand and could change anything in your life, what would it be”? Humans love this question, but they don’t realize that they have the power to change their own lives. That’s why they come to my mom. She listens to how they feel stuck, are having difficulty moving forward in their lives and what they want to change. Although Mom works over the phone with some clients, I love when a client comes to the office because I’m happy to help with the healing (and I get one too just by being in the room)! I’m sure you’ve heard canines have a great reputation as Therapy Dogs. Well…that’s me…Miss Therapy! The person enters the office and I come along within arms length to give them the opportunity to love me up and down! I can even distract the client from talking so they pay attention to me. You should see how that alone starts to make them feel better. It’s a known fact that Therapy Dogs help to do lots of things such as lower a person’s blood pressure and have even assisted in bringing people out of comas. Now I don’t want you to get the wrong idea or anything…nobody coming or going here is in a coma!!!
Mom says that what people want most is to be heard, understood and loved. We all have old physical, emotional and /or spiritual wounds that have not been healed. Look at me. You probably think I’ve got it all. Looks, personality, speed and brains. Well, I’ve never been able to feel comfortable around a vacuum cleaner. Once I see it come out of the closet I move as far away as possible. I have no idea why this happens but mom says it’s probably an old wound from my childhood that I obviously have not worked through yet. Eli doesn’t have the same issue. Every time the house is vacuumed, he sleeps right through it. Isn’t it amazing how two poodles growing up in the same house can be so different? I guess humans are like that too.
I don’t know how healing happens, but I do know that nobody can wave a magic wand and change your life. No matter how big or small the
changes that you want to make, it’s up to you. You just need to come to the table with the desire to change your life, discover your life purpose, heal yourself at the soul level and live with passion and joy.
Why would you want to live your life any other way?!!!
Love, licks and a popsicle stick,
