This is Nola who is a chihuahua being fostered by one of my artist friends after her owner gave her up at the animal shelter. This is the story of how I met Nola. I first met my artist friend a couple of years ago at a craft school where we both attended art classes one summer. After meeting her, we kept in touch via Facebook.
During my recent trip, I found my artist friend’s artwork at a gallery in the city I was visiting. When I saw her work, I immediately recognized it and mentioned this to the gallery owner. As we were talking about my artist friend, the gallery owner informed me that she lives in this very city since I was unaware of this fact. Just then her phone rang, and it was my friend’s husband calling the gallery. In amazement, the gallery owner relayed this coincidence to me, but I knew in my heart that this was no coincidence at all.
After purchasing some of my artist friend’s artwork, I posted the gallery and her artwork on Facebook. I immediately heard back from my friend who invited me to her home for drinks. When I arrived at her house, she introduced me to Nola who appears to be traumatized. I explained to my friend that I use Reiki on traumatized animals to help them heal their emotional and physical wounds.
As I began to work on Nola, she growled aggressively and would not allow me to touch her. Then, I just sat quietly next to her, and she began to inch closer and closer to me until she was touching me. We then began our work together. When I touched her, I saw visions of her owner and her back yard where she lived. As I touched her back, I felt an old injury of which she guarded and did not like to be touched there. When I touched her wound, I saw a vision of her owner kicking her with his shoes injuring her.
My friend told me that Nola was frightened of her husband, and I explained that her owner was a big bald man as her husband also is bald. As I worked on Nola, she began to relax and her anxiety lessened tremendously. After her healing session, she was more playful and friendly. Today, I heard from my friend that Nola has a prospective family visiting for her possible adoption. I hope my Reiki healing has helped heal some of her emotional wounds so she can find her new family. (Copyright 2016 Awakening Journey with All Rights Reserved)
