Hi everyone! I trust you've all had a safe and happy easter.
In this blog, I'm so happy to share a wonderful article written by my dear friend and doggy foster carer Dalitta Wright. Rescue dogs more than often come with a range of issues from the emotional to the physical. Here in this article, Dalitta shares with us the essential oils she used that made a profound difference to this beautiful bulldog.

"We recently discovered the world of dog fostering – doing our bit to improve the health and well-being of, and re-socialise and share loads of love with bulldogs that have had some life experience that has landed them in the pound. The dogs we have had experience with have been amazing and have responded so well to good raw food, loads of love and a few family boundaries.
Our most recent pound puppy (almost 40kg of him) is Trigger. Trigger came to us from Central Queensland. Being a white American Bulldog, he had extensive sun damage and unfortunately very severe and chronic infections of his ears and head area. Amazingly his body was generally unscathed. From the moment we picked Trigger up from the Melbourne Airport, I used therapeutic grade essential oils on him.
Lavender is the go-to oil with all my animals (and humans). It can assist with so many things and I don’t have the space to mention them all. The most important one when fostering dogs is it’s calming and relaxing capabilities.
With the assistance of antibiotics from the Vets, we managed to get the infection under control. The after effects of the infection and sun damage is very bad scarring.
One day soon Trigger will be heading to his forever home. After a little bit of work, we can guarantee he is an absolute gentleman and will be the perfect companion for pretty much anyone who wants the love of a large loving dog. But he was battle-scarred and in this world of image we wanted to see if essential oils would help to reduce the scarring in his ears and across his head.
The mixture I trialled on Trigger’s scarring is lavender, helichrysum and frankincense mixed in a fractionated coconut oil base.
Lavender, known for its’ calming, relaxing and balancing tendencies – both emotionally and physically – is a natural antiseptic and can assist to reduce any remaining inflammation and fungus.
Helichrysum is an anaesthetic and antiviral and may assist nerve regeneration. It is commonly used to manage skin conditions including eczema and scar tissue.
Frankincense, used to treat every known ailment to mankind in ancient times can be used to assist treatment of depression, cancer, respiratory infections, inflammation and stimulates immunity.
The pictures below were taken 18 days apart – I am by no means consistent when it comes to rubbing the oil on – sometimes I do it twice a day and sometimes it may be a couple of days between applications.
Also are the before and after photo's of Trigger when he first came into Dalitta's care.
I am very happy with the results so far and I have been using essential oils on my family and animals for more than ten years. Essential oils never cease to amaze me!
Everything old is new again. Never a truer saying was said. Go back sometime to the recent 2000’s and you rarely heard about Animal Communicators outside of the movie ‘Dr. Doolittle’. Nowadays it seems that there are many folk to label themselves animal Communicators.
I have experienced the real deal and I have also experienced the charlatans. The beauty of this particular type of field of animal work is that it is easy to detect the wood from the trees. Animals are so adept at reading us and can tell long before the rest of us humans, who is the real deal and who is not.
Some time ago I was a guest attendee at an event where my music was being utilized. At this particular event was a guest Animal Communicator who was by all accounts, fairly well known and well respected around the place. I was keen to see and hear what this fellow had to share.
Out came one of the carers with a Koala patient who clearly did not want to be there. He was unwell but for the sake of the demonstration, there he was. The Animal Communicator started talking about this little fellow and how he could connect with him to find out what had happened. As he reached out his arms, the Koala hissed and scratched at him. The guest’s response? That the Koala had probably smelled his dogs on him and had gotten confused. This led me to the obvious. I thought “So you’re telling me this Koala can’t tell the difference between you and a pack of dogs?” I lost a bit of confidence in him at that point.
However, having shared that particular story, I have also encountered some amazing animal communicators such as Anna Breytenbach, Val Heart and Christine Noble Seller and others whose results speak for them.
Animal Communication is a bit of a misnomer. It should just be termed ‘Open Communication with all beings’ if it requires a title at all.
The thing is, we have always communicated with each other. It’s just that we as humans have forgotten how to listen and somewhere along the line we decided we were the master and they were the slaves with no voice, no intelligence and no say in how, where or when their lives are lived. Fortunately things are changing – dramatically – and not only are people changing their eating habits, but they are changing their attitudes. No longer are they ‘dumb animals’. No longer are people standing idly by and saying nothing when they know of a cruelty case. No longer are people – good people – tolerating the ill-treatment of animals. Thank God people are finally speaking up.
So back to Animal Communication.
More and more folk are interested in this possibility. Yes, it is a possibility for ALL people because we are inherently intuitive, we are inherently telepathic and this is the method by which animals communicate. Their various assortments of vocal sounds are simply variations of their emotional responses. Connection is made through the heart chakra, not with the mind, although the mind does play a part in the overall picture.
Remember when you were just a little kid and you played with the neighbourhood dog or caught tadpoles in the local creek? Remember how you viewed them? They were just beings who looked different to us. Remember saving that bloated little upside-down goldfish that everybody else wanted to flush down the toilet? You were most probably tuned into that little fish who didn’t quite want to die because somebody had over-fed him through a gentle blend of love and irresponsibility. You were communicating with that little fish back then without a thought in the world.
As we enter a new age and a new level of spiritual awakening, we are feeling an intense magnetism to re-connect with our animal friends and fortunately there are genuine people who can teach us how to find our way back to where we once were. All communicating openly. And so it shall be.
