Davina communicates with Animals

I can sleep easier knowing that Davina has chosen to communicate with animals instead of going into the medical profession.  Tetanus and Strangles are nasty problems for a horse to have.  So I have yearly vaccines to provide me with protection.  This protection is usually in the form of an injection.  This year Davina decided to give me the injection herself.  The idea being that if I ever had to have antibiotics injected (perish the thought), then she would be able to do it for me.  Thus she gets the vaccine and yesterday was THE DAY!!!! 

Now I constantly “read” Davina to check out what is going on for her as a part of keeping me safe and evaluating our surroundings.  Davina is my herd leader, so if she is nervous, I start wondering what it is that we have to be nervous about and start getting nervous myself.  When Davina put the needle in my neck and was nervous, I started to get nervous and move a bit.  Now as I am a very well behaved horse (if I do say so myself), it was only a small step, just to let Davina know that I was picking up her fears.  Luckily Davina had our friend Lexie with her.  Lexie was holding my lead rope and Davina’s ‘hand’, metaphorically speaking, to help her though the injection process – which is not hard.   When Davina had trouble with the needle and getting the injection into me, Lexie was able to take over and finish the process.  Davina put down some hay for me to eat and I was ‘over’ the whole trauma of the incident.  Well ok, so it was not that traumatic.  If it is good for a biscuit of hay though, i will ‘milk’ the subject and call it traumatic.  So thank goodness Davina didn’t decide to go into medicine.  The whole is a safer place.  Also do you think you could practice before I am due for my next injections Davina.  Please!!!!  :)

The Difference between Worming Paste and Carrots

Davina went shopping for me today.  You know what she bought for me?  “Carrots”?, I hear you say.  I wish!  She bought me worming paste.  Now I would like to point out that there is considerable difference between worming paste and carrots.  They taste, look and feel different.  The only thing I can think of that they have in common (musing look and thinking music) is that they both go in my mouth.  Oh, have I mentioned that they taste differently?  Carrots are yummy and more please.  They juice up as I eat them and are very pleasing to my taste buds.  The worming paste is a bit bland, thick and not at all juicy.  So which would I rather have?  I guess I will have to choose carrots.  I can’t believe that Davina could get it soooo wrong.  I mean she is the animal communicator.  If she had asked me what I required from the shop (which she didn’t), I would have replied “carrots”.  I speak perfect Horse, with only a slight accent to show my country origins. There is no way she would have misunderstood me, if she had asked.  Maybe I need to start placing my own orders at the produce store.  It will save Davina getting it wrong again!!!

Herd Leadership

Davina is the leader of our herd – of two.  A situation with which I am comfortable and makes me confident.  

If we are out for a trail ride and I see a Wheelie Bin, as the leader, Davina expects me to listen to her - to act – rather than reacting blindly.  Instead of me having an “oh my gosh I am going to get eaten” moment and ending up kilometers down the road in a later of sweat, Davina expects me to look to her for leadership about how to respond.  Now I know for a fact that horses get eaten by Wheelie Bins.  My friend Dannie Buckskin has told me that it is so. 

I have to respect, like and trust Davina to be able to listen to her and accept her leadership.  I have to evaluate the decisions she makes.  Is she a good and strong leader?  Is she capable of keeping us safe?  If not, then I will have to step up and take over the job.  viagra I can do that, it makes me feel very uncomfortable.  It means that I have someone on my back, a very vulnerable place for me, in whom I have no confidence.   How would  you feel if you were in that situation?

My mother told me that a herd requires a strong leader.  As long as Davina is a strong leader then I am willing to follow her everywhere.  Especially if that anywhere will lead to a nice grazing patch.  <snicker>  That doesn’t meant that I won’t check from time to time – probably on a daily basis- if Davina is still a strong leader.  I can check by doing subtle things like pushing into her space and seeing if she notices, walking in front of her etc.

There are important questions that I have for my leader:-

-  will you keep me safe?

-  will you look after me?  

-  do you know good grazing patches?

-  will you keep watch whilst I graze? 

Oh yes, and have you bought any carrots recently.  Now I haven’t had to listen to any of Davina’s lame jokes recently,  however it is good to have carrots to make up for all the jokes to which I have had to listen in the past. 

I am lucky.  Davina does look after me.  She doesn’t put me in situations where she feels I might be in danger.  She ensures I get grazing time.  (Of course I could always do with more of that – hint, hint Davina)  She also feeds, washes and brushes me.  Whilst she is doing all and being a good and strong leader, I will follow Davina where ever she asks me to go.

Owning an Animal

I would like to talk today about the topic of animal ownership.  Now how many times do you hear a human say that they own an animal.  Pleeeease.  Get over yourself and look at the workload objectively.  Who goes to work to buy feed for the animal?  That would be you!  Who cleans up the yard, paddock, stable etc? That is you again!   Who pays the cost of agisting?  You!  Who rings the Vet if there are problems?  The answer yet again is, you, the human.  So do you still think that you own an animal?  There is no doubt in my mind that I own Davina.  <snicker>

P.S.  Davina is obviously reading my blog as she bought me carrots today.  What would it take for even more carrots to appear?  I do enjoy carrots.  <hint, hint Davina>

Bad Jokes Tax (B.J.T.)

Hi, my name is Dolly.  I am the good looking mare in the photo on the website.  Since Davina hasn’t posted anything for ages and I have heaps of things to say, I am taking over the blogging. 

I am going to start with one of my favourite topics – that of the Bad Joke Tax, or BJT as I usually refer to it.  Davina keeps telling me the WORST jokes.  I meant they are totally NOT funny.  It doesn’t matter how many times I give her THE look.  You know what I mean. The “that is soo not funny” look.  She just keeps telling them to me.  Let me give you an example. The other day Davina opened the door of her tack room to find one of the stable cats sleeping on my hay.  Davina looked at the cat and said “oh, you are cat napping” and doubled up with laughter.  Pleeeeease!!!!  “Cat napping”.  The cat gave Davina a look of disgust – not that it stopped her.  Now the cat only heard the one pathetic joke.  I have to put up with that sort of behaviour all the time.  That is why I have instituted the Bad Jokes Tax.   When Davina tells me Bad Jokes, which is usually on a daily basis,  she is meant to pay me in carrots.  The amount of the carrots she is meant to pay depends on how bad the joke is.  If I am eating, it makes her jokes palatable.

(Davina if you are reading this, I would like to point out that your account is currently in arrears.  I have heard jokes and haven’t had any carrots recently.  Prompt payment of your account would be appreciated.)

So if your human tells you bad jokes, I would suggest a tax.  It could be carrots or apples, hay, back scratthes, etc.  Sometthing that works for you.  That way the jokes are bearable. 

If anyone knows any good jokes, can you please send them through so that I can start telling them to Davina and turn the tables.  Of course I would still expect the BJT to be paid regardless of who was telling the jokes and how bad or good they are. 


Reconnecting and Educating

Pet Energy Therapy is about reconnecting and educating – reconnecting you with your animals and educating you as to the joyful possibilities that are available with animals.  There is a saying in Access Consciousness of “everything is the opposite of what is appears and nothing is the opposite of what it appears”.  In a Pet Energy Session that is certainly true, especially as it is not just about the animal.  Pets have so much to offer you and your life.  When you nurture your pet and your connection with them, you get nurturing, joy and bliss in return.  How does it get any better than that?  Contact Davina O’Brien on 0438 59 89 95 or to find out more and book a session.

Professionalism and magic

To Davina,

 I would like to thank you for your professionalism and magic you used on my Maltese X Pom, now 6 years old and named Gizmo, he is just a different animal.  He used to lick his paws for hours and have all other types of mannerisms that I didn’t like and he just seemed to be so distant… now he has stopped this and he is back to being a beautiful loving little Gizmo again.  You are amazing, I don’t know how you do it, and I would highly recommend your services and I truly thank you for making my little dog the beautiful animal he is today!

Yours sincerely, Michelle Troon

Much happier

Your work is great and my cat seems to be MUCH happier!  We have bonded much more- esp just after his op- he is keeping to himself past few days, however I am MUCH more aware of my energy in terms of HOW I am thinking of the house and my partner …when I am calm, loving and at ease, he is too…I guess I knew that…just maybe needed reinforcement!  And the house issue was a GREAT insight that I hadn’t consciously realised! Thank you!
