the traumatized puppy
My friends, Jen and Todd, brought a young dog into their lives. They had rescued the dog from a relative of Jenn’s where the 5-year old boy had been terrorizing the dog for 6 months. I was told that this child had been hitting, poking and stabbing the dog and had tried, on several occasions, to flush the dog down the toilet.
I was asked to come over to help with the dog, in some fashion. It had been two days since they acquired the puppy, named Lilly. When I got there, Lilly barked at me and was cautious around me, beside keeping her distance from Todd. I sat on the floor, with Todd and Jenn, in their living room. I observed that the puppy showed signs of trauma as she would chew / suck on her thumb-equivalent of her front paws, out of nervousness.
As we sat on the floor, Lilly would test me, by slowly moving one of her toys towards me, to see if I would pick it up and take it away from her. I did not respond, but continued to talk to the young couple. Soon, Lilly felt non-threatened and comfortable enough to sit on Jenn’s lap, next to me. I then gently caressed her back, and at the right time, I put my hand on her head.
We proceeded to psychically and spiritually induce a trauma release and erase, by wiping the memories and patterns from her mind of her first months of existence. Lilly sat calmly as I gently cupped her skull in my palm. Ten seconds later, I said - done.
Talking with Jenn and Todd later, they told me that the next day, they took Lilly with them to a friend’s house - one she had never been to before. They reported to me that Lilly acted like a warm, friendly and happy puppy, sniffing out and checking out the people there, with her tail wagging, and behaving like a non-traumatized animal.
