Everything our animal communicates tells a story about how they are feeling, how they are doing. The healing is in all the details. It is tricky sometimes I think to heal your own animal as you see them every day and some things they show you, may be labelled as “just them, they have always done this”. But with another person’s eyes, these are clues about potential imbalance in the mind, body, spirit connection.
When chronic cases come my way, logging what the animal is telling us daily against the 24-Hour clock is necessary. I am interested in behavior, whether frightened, aggressive or licking paws or scratching. Anything that exhibits unease is recorded. Bathroom habits, purging, all of it. I am interested in what the animal ate, if they ate, or if they asked for food earlier or more later. Did they hesitate to eat? Again, what are they telling us throughout the day about their mind, body, spirit connection.
All this wonderful information helps me, help the pet parent to help the animal. It helps us navigate what organ may be under stress and what changes are occurring. Each of us is tied to the planet and to all her rhythm’s so a lot of upset happens from 19.00 onward as this is when the body is trying to calibrate and then clean and repair in the wee hours of the morning. Again, everything tells a story.
For the pet parents, they are doing the recording, it is work. But for me the reader, I can see what the animal is saying. It is beyond valuable. We constantly adjust based on the changes and communication the body, mind and spirit express.
In general, each animal should have a log dedicated to their well-being. It is to record about what you are witnessing if there is any imbalance, what the animal is communicating, and what was done to try and help them rebalance. The log should contain your thoughts and feelings too as this is your inner guidance system and is full of wonderful information. Who you contacted, and the outcome. And how you and your animal both treated is also very important.
Logging helps us see patterns, and also highlights when things have been perhaps going on longer than one thought. It also provides valuable history to anyone who may help you heal your animal.
Each of our animals has their dedicated log. It is started as soon as they arrive, and continues their lifetime.
