My final trade stand of the year is all done. And fittingly it ties into my plans for October.
I came up with the idea for a chill out zone for my gazebo at trade stands, as it shows the things I combine in therapies, and for my own pets.
There were two herbal plants; lavender and rosemary, which are great healers, and my two favourite plants. Just the scent of the plants is enough to benefit from their healing properties.
In between the two dog blankets, there were 7 chakra balancing crystals. When either you or your pet has all the chakras in balance you are in perfect health, physically and emotionally.
And finally, I couldn’t be without some essential oils. Peppermint and Ylang Ylang are both very relaxing essential oils. Just like the plants, all your dog needs is the scent of the essential oil to feel the healing properties.
This little guy, certainly liked the chill out zone!
Fittingly for anxiety month, I heard fireworks last night! And soon, there will be more and more of them. How does your dog cope with the noise?
As well as being the inspiration behind Hoof To Tail Healing, Beth, also inspired my chakra balancing set. She’s a pretty inspiring dog!
I learnt all about using crystals to balance the chakras and reduce symptoms of ill health, anxiety and past trauma, when training as a reiki master. Once I was home, I wanted to practice what I had learned, so around once every couple of weeks, I would put the crystals next to Beth’s chakras while she was lay relaxing.
It wasn’t until October that I noticed a difference in Beth. I went to let her out at night, and as I opened the door I heard fireworks. I thought she would start barking, as was her normal behaviour but she completely ignored them, and carried on sniffing on the grass for the perfect spot to go to the toilet.
This continued throughout the firework season, and the only thing I can think that changed was the regular chakra balances. Now don’t get me wrong, it’s not a miracle cure. I still “set the scene” by shutting the curtains, walking before dark, keeping the TV turned up, and making sure Beth stays extra cosy on her bed. And she still has regular chakra balances. But I was still amazed, at how relaxed Beth was.
Now is the perfect time to get started with some chakra balances, so your dog is relaxed ready for the start of the firework season. Here is the link for more information. It couldn’t be easier to balance your dog’s chakras, as I include a handy guide with each set.
I’ll be sharing more tips on anxiety throughout this month, but a great way to start, if you dog has an anxiety around fireworks night, is with my free download, Fireworks Survival Guide It starts off with things you can do now in the lead up to fireworks night, and ends with what to do on the night (or nights) itself.
