Wonderful things happening have been so routine around here for so long, that I forget that if people haven’t experienced stuff like it, they can find it a bit unbelievable.
I was reminded recently of this day errr… 25 years ago when I was just a baby in alternative therapies. I was out on the porch of our house at Darnum with two very worried people and their paraplegic dog dragging itself around on the concrete, leaving stark splotches of blood from a bleeding rear end. The spots of blood are so vivid in my memory. It shouldn’t have been such a shock, the 3 months of intense anti-inflammatories the dog had been on, can tear apart the insides and cause that kind of internal bleeding.
You could see the visible kink in the dog’s spine. If I remember rightly all these years later, it had jumped a fence and landed wrong. We’d done one session a week earlier and thought we could see an increase in feeling in its back legs after the session, but weren’t totally convinced that it was our wishful thinking. On the day I’m talking about, they were here for the second session.
Gosh I could talk about Bowen muscle therapy for hours, but very simply it’s a gentle vibrational technique which releases the muscles and brings them into balance in such a way that the muscles themselves slide the spine (or the rest of the skeleton) into place. I’d just done some very gentle Bowen moves down the dog’s back, when the dog started trembling and shaking uncontrollably. Gosh it was scarey to watch.
These days, my kinesiology training and my Feel and ability to be Present is automatically part of everything that I do, but this was back in the very early days in the days prior to all that training. I’d been talking to Pat Coleby recently – a phenomenal healer – and she popped into my mind, so I rang her.
“Have you got any magnesium orotate?” she asked. “Yes Pat.” “Runnn… for the magnesium” she boomed in my ear. Yes Pat. I duly ran for the magnesium. “Crush two tablets between two spoons and spoon it into the dog’s mouth.” She was still booming. “Yes Pat” as I crushed the magnesium and spooned it into the dog’s mouth.
” Now. What are they feeding it?” she asked. Pat was passionate about the feeding of animals for good health and famous for her work on mineralising the animals of Australia for dramatic improvements in health outcomes. She was an incredible lady, passionate, knowledgeable and oh so willing to share her knowledge, but omg she did not suffer fools gladly. Blunt and caustic in the way she spoke and a heart as big as a house.
I duly asked the owners and relayed their answer of a can of Pal dog food a day and some ad lib dry food. Well if you ever knew Pat, you’d know that was like a red rag to a bull.
“What are they trying to do, KILL the poor beast?” she boomed. It was definitely a rhetorical question, because as far as Pat was concerned that kind of diet WAS killing the poor beast. “Write this down!” And she proceeded to give me an alternative diet for the dog.
A couple of minutes had passed while we did all that food stuff. “Now look at the dog, has it stopped shaking?” less boom now. “Yes Pat.”
Yes Pat indeed…
I don’t have to know or understand the bio chemistry of what happened, because I come at it from a different angle, but what I DO know is that there is varying degrees of toxin release that happens when we release crush injuries – which can be as varied as having legs crushed in a car, to a kink in the spine like this dog. In this case as the muscle spasms around that kinked spine released, the toxins were suddenly released into the system – a flood of trapped calcium and potassium that was causing the dramatic magnesium imbalance.
People are funny, I never heard from them directly again – maybe they just assumed that I knew this would work? But I found out quite a long time later when they referred someone to me who reported them raving about my work, that the dog walked.
The point of this story:
I thought you might enjoy the story about Pat Coleby – a very special lady, an icon in the Australian wellness industry, but that’s not the big deal.
The REALLY big deal is that so called miracles DO happen and they happen regularly. What miracles are you creating today?
