Reflections on Maggie - canine brain tumors

posted by Horse Owner Today    |   January 10, 2013 07:41


It’s hard to believe that my beloved dog, Maggie has been gone for two years. Some days I still cry when I think of her. Maggie was such a love; so smart and so in tune with my emotional state. There is no replacing her in my mind. Therefore, I am dogless in Ohio.
Reflecting on Maggie’s decline in health, a few things come to mind. She was diagnosed with food and airborn allergies at a young age. A result of that is for an animal to rub its head against a hard surface and also licking itself due to itching. Maggie did that for many years.
When we moved to North Carolina, I noticed changes in Maggie’s behavior. Her head rubbing continued and licking became more severe. She licked herself, the furniture & the carpet while awake. She also started pacing and circling.                            
Maggie’s favorite place to lay down was on the cool tiles in front of the fireplace, even though she had difficulty getting up from that location. In addition, there were changes in her bowel habits. Eating habits were affected too. It appeared that she had an insatiable appetite & water intake increased.
On February 19, 2009, Maggie was unable to stand on her hind legs. A veterinarian gave a diagnosis of brain and/or spinal cord tumor. Seeing my dog suffering with severe pain and unable to walk, I chose euthanasia. That is a difficult decision for a pet owner to make. It’s so hard to let go…
My past experiences with being a dog owner is this: I am drawn to ones who are not healthy. Because of that, I learn so much from helping them to heal.
After Maggie’s passing, I researched canine brain tumors. Maggie exhibited many of the signs, including the need to lay on a hard surface.  Although I was not aware while she was alive, the information has answered many of my questions about her behavioral changes. My regret is not knowing sooner.
Although difficult to lose my Maggie, she was a blessing of love and a source of knowledge for me. I miss you, girlfriend!!!

Animal Communication

Animal Communication – Part 3

posted by Horse Owner Today    |   October 19, 2012 08:36


Many years ago, I was the owner of a yellow Lab. Her name was Maggie. When Maggie wanted something, she stood still and stared until someone noticed. One day she had a prolonged stare. I tried to figure out what she wanted. She stomped her front paws on the dining room floor and these words came to mind “You are supposed to help God’s gentle creatures”. That was the day I decided to include animal communication as part of my business.
Initially, I made on-site calls to help animals. Due to requests from people who lived quite a distance from me, I started to provide distant communication sessions. When I look at pictures of animals, I am able to tell if they are having physical discomfort. I briefly feel in my body what they are feeling in theirs. Also covered in a session are any behavioral or emotional issues. The majority of problems are related to the humans in their life. Animals are very sensitive to human emotions. Specific details are revealed and suggestions for making improvements are given.
There were numerous times that I was able to help with physical and behavioral problems. Some were due to inadequate nutrition, health issues that were later checked & tested by veterinarians and changes made in the home environment that decreased stress.
Distant animal communication is available by email correspondence or Skype calls. If you have ever wondered what your pet would like you to know, an animal communicator may be able to tell you!

Animal Communication

Animal Communication – Part 2

posted by Horse Owner Today    |   September 15, 2012 08:02

 

 


Learning about energy fields of living things was a strange concept at first. I had a medical background. While working as a nurse, I was able to guess what physical problems newly admitted patients had simply by looking at them. A few co-workers knew about my ability. Test results always confirmed my initial assessment of the health problems. Still, I was unaware of the technical name for tuning into energy fields. After being in a car accident, massage therapy provided relief of pain. I decided to become a licensed massage therapist. It wasn’t until I attended school for massage therapy that I learned about energy fields of living things, yet I was aware of them at a very young age. From a toddler into adulthood I was able to sense things about people and animals. There was finally a name for it.
When people are relaxed, their energy field is calm and peaceful. Being around them feels good. Stress causes energetic changes in the body. Being near a stressed, worried or angry person does not feel good.  How we are feeling emotionally and physically emanates from our bodies. Animals are highly sensitive to our emotions. They feel them on a deep level and it affects them. They react to fear, tension and sadness.
In the next article, I will explain how I communicate with animals.

Animal Communication

Case Study of Sara with The Pet Communicator Barb Borkowski

posted by Horse Owner Today    |   August 25, 2012 11:31

 

I have a life long interest in energy healing.  Energy healing and animal communication are fascinating so when Barb and I met I definitely wanted her input on our mare Sara.

Barb was very willing and asked for a recent photo, I send the following video clip and photo to her.

My mare’s name is “Simply Sara”. 

Here she is earlier this summer  http://youtu.be/WbSyOV7adx4

This is Barb's response.....

Hi Bonnie,
 
When I look at the picture of Sara, the following comes to mind:
 
Sara does not realize how big she is. As funny as it may sound, she thinks she is a dog! While viewing the video of Sara, that really got my attention. To me, she shows some canine mannerisms.
 
My attention is drawn to the area where Sara's liver is. There is energy congestion there. My impression is that her liver is slightly smaller than the average for her size.  With that, it feels like her liver is working hard to rid the body of toxins. I suggest checking into alfalfa for its liver cleansing properties. (Please consult a veterinarian! I am not an expert on animals, just the messenger).
 
Sara is extra sensitive to electromagnetic fields. Being close to power lines and electrical appliances causes a nervous, jittery sensation in her abdomen.
 
A feeling of sadness surrounds Sara's forehead.  "My owner thinks too much and doesn't follow her heart.
 
Sometimes Sara's left front lower leg has tenderness. Her right hip gets stiff with slight soreness, especially when it rains.
 
Sara desires for you to "follow your heart". You deserve happiness after all you've been through.
 
I hope this helps you, Bonnie. If you have questions, please let me know.
 
Blessings,
Barb

Barb and I will be working together with Sara, check back for regular updates.
