We had snow too, and I also walked my dog through it. It was over a layer of slush so it was very heavy and wet but at least I managed to get over 20 minutes of walking in addition to my 50 minutes of ice skating. Now it's like 40 degrees and raining, and there is still snow, so it's a mess here and it will probably all freeze overnight.

I bet you do miss your hikes. Mine are through the neighborhood so at least I can go year round, even in the dark. There aren't many street lights but it's a safe area and there are no wild animals or anything like you have to worry about.

Thats great and hope the date went well!

I did 16500 steps today on the Elliptical, Rebounder and Walking, kind of snowed in and did not go for my walk but walked on the spot a lot. Kind of boring and I miss my hikes. I love snow but DD said it was cold though we built a snow cat!

They do seem to do that, too. I love cats.

Getting back to the topic of this board: today I took good care of myself by going ice skating. I got some exercise on my date by ice skating instead of choosing a sedentary activity. Yay!

That's cool, Meghan. Both my current dog and my last cat came to me as strays who were very sick and had been mis-treated. I think they came to me so I could heal them and give them lots of love after after they had hard lives on their own.

Speaking of healer cats, yesterday I called a friend and we spoke for almost an hour. Near the end of our conversation she said she was amazed because her cat (Noel) had jumped up on her lap and purred the whole time she was talking to me and her cat never does that, in fact my friend always tries to get her to be a lap cat and she refuses. So I told my friend her cat knew I missed my cat and was sending me cat medicine over the telephone. My friend agreed that was it. It was very funny after our recent conversations here.

It occurs to me I also have a cat who comes to me to be healed. He knows when he isn't well and comes right to me and lets me tend to him. Our other cats need to be convinced to even let me look at them. Bear is pretty cool that way.

I have known a lot of cats like that, they do seem like healers and I am sure they choose that role too. Animals are so wonderful.

What gorgeous cats! Nicole, I only called the cats healer cats because instead of being upset by tears and sobs, they come and share calmness and comfort. Their very presence simply evokes healing.

I saw the article, but I haven't had time to read it as I've been really busy. I want to print it off and take my time.

They are absolutely adorable! As is DD. And I'm sure another cat will come into my life but I don't feel ready for it yet. I almost brought one home a few weeks ago, but decided against it, even though he was super cute and bigger than my dog and wanted to come home with me. I am just beginning a Saturn square Neptune transit and the advice I've seen says to simplify things as much as possible and bringing a new cat into my home with that crazy dog of mine is anything but simple.

Siamese are such great cats, I have always loved them and these two were definitely meant to come to us. I hope another cat comes into your life when you are ready Nicole.

Meghan, did you read Anna's article on the flower essences and animals? We chatted away on here after she posted it.

My last cat, Chocolate Fang, was also a Siamese too and she was a talker! If I had to guess I would say she was an Aquarius like me. I never even knew how old she was, the vet said somewhere between 2 and 7 when I first took her and asked him. But she was with me for 12 years and she was geriatric towards the end.

I haven't heard of healer cats, but it certainly makes sense.

I do see cats reflecting their owners, but I also see them taking on stuff a lot too, they are supposed to be able to process it but not always, I try not to let my own animals though. I think animals do come with lessons to learn and teach us though and the dynamic is not that simple all the time. They definitely do show astrological traits though!

Do cats tend to reflect owners? Or are they too independent? I do know that a few of the cats we've had over the years have been "healer" cats and come to whoever is sick or in emotional pain and share their space.
I don't know what signs our two oldest are, but the younger ones are a Gemini (the calico) and a Libra. The calico is quite the imp and flirt and has much to say with her tail (she is not a meower).

He looks like such a character! Sorry about your cat thats hard to lose a beloved pets. I used to be more of a dog person but lately am really enjoying my cats. DD's cat Yin is Siamese and she ADORES her, I have never seen a cat worship a 3 year old like she does, she is the nicest cat I have ever known. I think she is a Pisces, estimating when she was born, her 'brother' Yang is a little older, I adopted them from someone who was allergic to them and she got them from someone who was allergic to them before that so no idea where they came from.

I wish I knew my dog's birthday. He seems like an Aries to me though. He is always go-go-go. He has amazing focus though. He can want something for days and days and not forget about it. He also has what I call "jedi powers": he can make you play with him even when you don't want to and you don't even realize what you are doing, no matter who you are. I think he was sent to me to teach me the value of every little thing in this world (he absolutely loves even the grossest of things) and unconditional love. He was a very frightened little dog when I first got him and hated men. I guess I was like that once, too, a long time ago, lol, but nowadays we are both long over that.

My beloved cat passed away this past summer and I wish I knew her birthday, too. Another stray. I'd say she was a lot like me, too. When she wanted attention she wanted it then and there but if she wanted to be left alone she would get her way, but that might just be all cats. I've never considered pet astrology but I do study animals as totems and teachers. I miss my cat.

Its funny how it works though even if you don't pick them out subconsciously (and most of the time I think thats not the case) my dog the GSD is really like me, she even paces and she does NOT have a pedometer on, and my DH's very goofy dog is just like him lol, he is a Scorpio dog, and for a Lab has some really Scorpio traits, DH does too tho under his goofy Sag sun, he has Scorpio, asc Mars and Mercury. My dog is a Cancer, we have not had her too long but she is the nicest dog and so bonded to me.

I didn't really pick out my dog, he was a stray foundling and a friend of a friend was going to take him to the pound after she couldn't locate his owners (he was dumped in the country) so somehow he ended up being mine but we do share certain behaviors, I can't deny that, lol.

I do meditations also and have worked on containing my own energy field and setting up shields. I do have a DVD that teaches all of that. But honestly, my degree is in teaching high school and I couldn't do it and I think that is the real reason why. I'm going to check out that website later. Thanks.

I know I do meditations to release the energy, and have worked with a lady here to help set up energy shields and things, it has helped, DH's ex has been stalking us and I had to do this to help with that situation. Can you believe her family is from the same town in UK I was born in (tho she grew up here - well actually she did not grow up but she lived here most of her life) and she is also a Leo with a Virgo moon, creepy or what!?) anyhow this really helped with that situation and picking up peoples emotions, especially important for me dealing with sick animals and distraught people a lot:

www.marveena.com/

I was going to be polite and not mention dogs tend to reflect their owners, or owners pick dogs like them? Its true for me too!

Hope the skate-date goes well, he sounds fun, I think as a Scorpio if he was not interested that would be it so he obviously is, be interesting to hear about his chart, he sounds like he has some good planets to balance his Scorpio energy.

Perfect timing on the reply. I am going to Whole Foods today on my lunch hour. Thanks for the info!

It is hard to be an empath. The hard part for me is I keep thinking they are my feelings and not knowing what to do with them or where they came from, but as I get older I keep reminding myself of that and I'm learning to sort those things out. I have also done some energy work to help with this but need more practice. I would love to find a teacher to work with. (Do you hear me Universe?)

I am going to pick up some Vervain for the dog and I might use it, too, as needed. Sometimes I get super-spaz, too, I think it's all that Uranian energy I've got. But it's unpredictable, predictably, lol.

I've used the single essences for a long time. The Walnut I got when I quit smoking a few months ago to keep those smokers all around me from influencing my decision. And the Gentian I just got a few weeks ago when I was feeling like giving up ... I was feeling like every little thing I ran up against was a gigantic setback. The good news is I am feeling much stronger, internally, and am feeling like I can handle anything the Universe decides to throw at me.

Btw, we set our skating date for Sunday afternoon. He's got to have some air and fire in him because when we talk we both get hyper. Maybe hyper is the wrong word ... we swell with energy that seems to play off of each other, if you know what I mean. But the moon was in Leo yesterday so maybe that was a part of it, too. I think our skating date will reveal whether or not we have some chemistry, sweating together usually does that. I was so nervous on the previous date I couldn't really tell. And him a water sign they are often hard to read.

Thanks! He really seems like a Vervain type, and if you try a single remedy first it can be really effective, and you can always do the Impatiens later. Jack Russel's are umm a little intense! Much better natured in the USA than UK though where they are very much working dogs. Great personalities though!

That sounds like a great blend for you. I take the FES Yarrow special solution, I need to update my article as they recently changed the name to Yarrow Environmental Solution (YES) and its great I take it a lot as I am the same way (I think its the Cancer asc) and it really helps. Its hard to be an empath. Its great but WholeFoods stopped carrying it (my Aquarian-Virgo-moon friend used to be a herb and supplement buyer for them) I am sure a local health food store would have them, or you can order directly from FES on-line.

Great article, Anna!

I may consider using Vervain for my dog. He suffers from an over-abundance of enthusiasm. It is really very cute but he can be very hyper-active sometimes. It has gotten better as he has gotten older, but he still has daily episodes of craziness and sometimes he does bite me trying to bully me into playing with him. Just yesterday he bit my ankle while I was changing my clothes to take him for our evening walk. He doesn't bite hard, it's play-biting, but it's still bad behavior I'd like to end. Maybe Impatiens ... I'm not sure. He is very good-natured, not mean-spirited ... what do you think, Anna? Maybe you can't say without seeing him or knowing more but in a lot of ways he is a typical Jack Russell.

I am very interested also in the FES Special Yarrow Formula. Do they have it at Whole Foods? I think one of the biggest reasons I seek solitude is because I pick up all of the emotions and feelings of the people around me (Mercury in Pisces) and I cannot separate those feelings from my own feelings. I can't tell what is mine and what isn't. For example, one of my girlfriends came over the other day and was working with a Trigger Point Therapy book I recently got and as she activated her trigger points in her shoulder my own shoulder felt exactly the same thing and became very sore and hot to the touch. It's like I absorbed her energy and pain and it became mine and it hurt the rest of the day, even after she left. Things like that happen to me all the time.

Interesting too in the article about the blending. Since I just began I don't know much about it but I seem to be following the guidelines you set out in the article. My blend is Gentian, Sweet Chestnut, and Walnut. I am going to add White Chestnut to my next blend, I think.

Yes I use it with animals too, I usually dilute it or put it in their water at least for cats. Here is an article I wrote. Glad your blend is working Nicole, I think its much better for specific problems to make up a blend like that. It works so well.





What are Flower Essences?
Bach Flower Remedies
California Flower Essences
Other Flower Remedies
Uses of Flower Remedies

Common Flower Remedies











Flower essences are dilute extracts of various types of flowers and plants that are used to treat animals and people. They are similar to homeopathic remedies in that they are diluted and potentized to make them more effective than just using the original flower as a herbal extract. The person who first developed the original flower remedies was Dr. Edward Bach, a famous English physician. He developed the Bach Flower Remedies when he was working as a homeopathic practitioner and devoted the last years of his life to researching and developing his remedies, from 1930 onwards. He wanted to find a simpler form of treatment that would not require anything to be destroyed or altered.

Dr. Bach believed that diseases of the body come about as a result of imbalances or negativity at the level of the soul, and by correcting the problem here healing would result and the body would heal on all levels. The flower remedies act to balance inharmonies in the emotional and spiritual body, and bring about a gentle healing by bringing the body back in balance with itself. They act almost a catalysts to cause healing. There were originally thirty eight Bach Flower Remedies that at that time Dr. Bach felt would correct all imbalances that were possible. There are remedies such as Holly which he found would heal the state of anger, and open the heart, and remedies that deal with a variety of other emotions from lack of confidence to over enthusiasm and impatience.

Animals respond just as well to Bach Flower remedies as people, and seem to have similar emotional imbalances that can be corrected with the appropriate remedy. The flowers are gathered from nature when they are just at the point of perfection and it is important that the flowers are free from any toxins and preservatives. The remedies are made by leaving the flower out in the sun and the extracted essence is then diluted in water and preserved with alcohol to make a mother tincture. The resulting remedy is then diluted in spring water to make a solution that can be taken by an animal or a person.

Subsequent to Bach's work other Flower Essence Societies have been formed and remedies have been developed that are appropriate to that particular area, or the times we are living in. The most important of these are the California Flower Essences that are developed from native American plants in the Sierra Nevada foothills in California. The Flower Essence Society has developed an extensive research program and been very important in helping people understand and use Flower Remedies as a healing tool.








As mentioned above the first flower remedies were the Bach Flower Remedies and there are thirty eight of these, which are used to treat a lot of different problems in both people and animals. These are a great place to start and to study to get familiar with the Flower essences and you can really treat almost every condition with these alone. Each essence treats a particular imbalance and they can be used alone or in combination depending what the problem is. It is often more effective to use a single essence, as this is more focused. It is possible to use more, but the maximum recommended number of remedies to combine is seven, and it is best to use as few as possible for maximum results.

One well chosen flower remedy will be more powerful in its action. In practice three or four related remedies seem to work well together for example, a combination might be made up for treating fear composed of the following three Bach Flower Remedies. Mimulus may be used for fear of known causes, Aspen for groundless fears, Rock Rose for acute fear or panic. Together these three remedies will cover most aspects of fear, and will act as a good general fear remedy. If the fear was due to some trauma that had happened in the past then another remedy called Star of Bethlehem may be considered, as this helps release any shock and trauma from the body, however long ago it took place.

The most useful Bach Flower Remedy of all is actually a combination of five other remedies, that act synergistically to calm stress and fear. This is wonderful any time there is shock, stress or trauma. It is an invaluable addition to the first aid kit that any pet owner would find useful. It can be safely used before visiting the vet office or after any kind of injury. It will often revive animals that are in shock and help in their journey to the vet and subsequent recovery, though it is obviously not a replacement for immediate veterinary care. It has definitely saved many animals and is totally safe.

The five remedies are Star of Bethlehem for trauma and numbness, Clematis for being grounded and to prevent passing out, Rock Rose for panic, Impatiens for tension and irritability and Cherry Plum to prevent losing control. Basically four drops of the stock bottle are added to a one ounce glass dropper bottle of spring water and shaken up. It is best to make this up immediately before use as the mixture will not keep too long.Three or four drops of the mixture can be given into the mouth or onto the gums every five minutes until a response is seen. Rescue Remedy can also be given in the water during any time of stress and in this case it is best to use ten drops every time the water is changed.

Rescue Remedy and the other thirty eight remedies are available in most good health food stores. They are very valuable healing essences and well worth using. The other remedies can be prepared by adding two drops of each remedy that is indicated into a one ounce dropper bottle, and adding spring water, and a dropper or two of a preservative such as brandy or apple cider vinegar. For people alcohol is used as a preservative but I find in small animals like rabbits it is best to use plain spring water. Four drops can be given on the gums four times daily, for about six to eight weeks to achieve the desired effect.






The California Flower Essences, known as quintessentials, are made by the Flower Essence Society in the Sierra Nevada foothills in California. The non-profit organization was formed by Patricia Kaminski and Richard Katz and is very scientifically based. They have an extensive practitioner research program and are continually researching new flower essences. The Society has three purposes which are the research into therapeutic uses of the flower essences, training and certification programs and communication and referrals between people and practitioners interested in flower remedies.

FES makes a large number of different essences and several are worth mentioning individually. There is a Special Yarrow Formula that is effective in protecting both people and animals against harmful environmental influences, such as radiation, pollution, electromagnetic radiation, for example from computers. This also protects against negative emotions that can affect health and well-being. Animals and children are particularly sensitive to picking up the emotions and moods of the people around them and this formula helps to prevent this. Emotional stress in animals, picked up from the family, can manifest as psychological stress such as inappropriate urination, feather plucking or chewing on themselves, and this formula can often help in these situations.

Bleeding heart is another very useful flower remedy that as it suggests helps heal the heart. It is invaluable after any kind of grief, such as the loss of a family member or other pet, for both the people and animals suffering the loss. It can be used for a female animal after her puppies or kittens leave to other homes, or after a divorce or separation, where animals are affected just as much as people to the stresses and painful emotions. Chamomile is useful, as is the herb (which is often made as a tea) for calming the emotions and soothing irritable and fractious animals, and is especially useful for younger pets and children, when they are teething and tend to be restless and cranky.

There are numerous other California Essences which are useful too, for specific emotional problems and they can be combined most successfully with Bach Flower Remedies or other essences. One essence that works well on the physical body is Garlic, and this helps to repel fleas, and does not have any of the other effects of garlic, including the odor, some animals are sensitive to garlic as a herb, and it should not be used in too large dosages, and the flower essence garlic offers a safe and effective alternative, which can be used on a daily basis, and helps to enhance the function of the immune system.






There are several other excellent sources of Flower Remedies. The first of these are made by Perelandra Flower Essences. Perelandra is a wonderful place of nature, founded by Machaelle Small Wright. They grow their own flowers and make essences. The Perelandra essences work deeply and at a more spiritual level and are useful for deep seated emotional problems. Some essences help with the physical body such as Celery which restores balance to the immune system when it is stressed or overworked, and during long-term viral or bacterial infections, tomato also helps the body in throwing off infection or disease.

Green Hope Farm are another extensive source of Flower Remedies, in the USA. In addition to many single essences they also have various special formulations including some developed specifically for animals, including ones for flea relief, called Flee Free, and one for emergency animal care. These are very useful general essences for the pet owner to keep at hand, and they seem to have the most extensive range of animal essences, so are well worth looking into further.

Australian Bush Essences is an excellent company based, as the name suggests, in Australia, They have a range of essences from that country, which has very different flora and fauna to the United States. Some people believe that the essences made near to where you live are more effective, for people and animals living there, and it certainly makes sense to use the flowers that are growing locally, and take the gifts which they offer. The Bush Flower Essences have fifty well researched flower essences that were developed by a naturopath from Australia, named Ian White, from plants growing wild and free in the beautiful Australian bush, which is still a relatively unadulterated wilderness.

Master's Flower Essences are the oldest essences outside UK. They are a wonderful range of 20 essences that address a lot of modern issues, such as success and achievement. They can be extrapolated for animals, for example the remedy for assuredness and success would suit an animal that was used in the show ring, or a horse that was required to race or achieve certain goals. Often is is useful for an animal and a person to take flower remedies at the same time, and sometimes the same remedy is indicated, as animals tend to take on the emotions and stresses of their human companions. There are many essences available to choose from and the only way to find out which is best is by reading and researching or even better by consulting a qualified flower essence practitioner.






As described above, flower remedies and essences have many and varied uses, but act mainly on the higher emotional levels. The body is affected very much by the emotions and the mind, and by healing at a deeper level flower remedies can shift illnesses, either alone, or more often in combination with other forms of treatment. For example, skin problems may manifest in animals during times of anxiety and stress, such as when a new pet or a human baby, enters the household. The physical symptoms may be due to jealousy, anger, resentment, loneliness or other emotions, but by careful questioning an idea of what may be going on can be determined and a remedy mixture made up to address the root cause of the problem. In the meantime the skin may also need to be treated, but the end results with addressing the issue at both these levels are much better than merely treating the skin alone.

Flower remedies can help a lot with behavioral problems, such as biting and aggression. It is important to combine the remedy with training and behavior modification, and both these approaches are enhanced by the use of flower remedies. Fear, which is a common problem in animals, also can be helped by suitable remedies, and a combination of Rescue Remedy and the fear remedies mentioned above will often help in situations such as fear of thunderstorms, or general lack of confidence. Animals that have been rescued or abused in the past often benefit wonderfully from the use of appropriate flower essences, and they can help to restore their confidence and build trust.

Rescue Remedy, combined with the homeopathic remedy Aconite makes a wonderful calming essence that can be used on wild animals, and for rehabilitation, as mentioned above it works well on any kind of stress or fear situation and definitely helps with survival rate in these situations. A few drops of the combined essence on the gums or even onto the ear of the rescued animal will calm them down and make them easier to handle. It can even be sprayed onto the skin or ears with a spray bottle and will still have a beneficial effect. A dropper of the combination can be put in the daily water for rescued animals to help them withstand the stress of captivity, and make them more manageable.

Other problem pets such as animals that tend to wander away from home, cats that urinate and defecate all over the house, animals that suffer from separation anxiety can all benefit from flower remedies, and their problems can be improved. It depends on the situation, often if the change will be permanent, some problems are related to other animals in the household, such as territorial behavior, and this may persist as long as another cat is present. Nevertheless appropriate flower essences can help alleviate and resolve many of these situations, again combined most effectively with behavior modification and possible changes to the living environment.

Actually I've been using a blend I mixed and I think it's really been helping (I use it twice daily). I will be getting more Rescue Remedy when I pick up another essence for my personal blend. I am almost finished with the first self-blended bottle and will blend another batch soon and I'd like to get something else for my nerves to put in the mix.

Thank you for the birthday wishes.

I am taking care of myself by staying centered and eating well during these last few days of the week. I am in charge of our Commencement (for the school of humanities) tomorrow and that is always a very busy stressful time. But, I've stayed away from the caffeine, eaten enough protein and good carbs, and gotten almost enough sleep. I do my best to let go of the worries when I get home and seem to be succeeding. Yay me!

It is really nice to get out of the routine and stay in a hotel for a change.

And I love swimming, but hardly ever do it. I think it's because I'm practically blind without my glasses so when I swim I can't see anything else going on around me and it's kind of scary! Makes open swim or lap swim no fun at all. I wish I had access to a private facility!

And Happy Birthday Meghan!

I'm taking care of me by getting back to eating healthfully today after 3 days of birthday treat eating. That was fun... but this is better, I feel energized and less anxious. Funny how sugar and chocolate can make you jumpy.

(I love staying in hotels!)

Staying in a hotel on Monday night was wonderful, I think we definitely need to do it more often in the midst of our house-building, nothing like a nice hot bath!!

Great job on working out a plan for your TMJ Nicole. I'm hoping to do the same for my sensory defensiveness this upcoming 4 day weekend.

This morning I had a scary dream, but was able to look at it objectively, talk it over with a friend, and zero in on what it said to me. Brought light to my fears and feel more whole for it!

Wish I had a pet who cleaned too... however, at least cats aren't as dirty as dogs so the foursome are not adding to the mess... oh wait!!!! Shedding... what am I talking about? But, then again they do wash themselves... oh wait!!!! hairball gak... ewwwwww!

This weekend I read a book on TMJ and started the Total Wellness Program for taking control of TMJ. I spent an hour yesterday doing the physical part of this program which is mostly stretching and physical therapy exercises. I also made some delicious soup: Low Fat Cheddar Chowder, a Sparkrecipe, which was absolutely delicious! I also now have lunches ready for the week. And my dog and I went for 2 short walks yesterday and we got up and went for another walk this morning before work! (My dog doesn't work, just me, but sometimes I wish he would do some work, too!)

I'm sorry you have a horrible cold, Anna. I had that a couple weeks ago. So far today I have taken good care of me by starting the day off with a healthy high protein/high fiber breakfast, lots of water, and vitamins.

I went to bed early last night, too, before 9 pm, and then ended up oversleeping still! I was awake and everything, I just thought my alarm hadn't gone off yet. Then I realized it was getting light outside. So I looked at the clock and it was 7:25 and I usually get up at 6:00! I'm not sure what happened but at least I was only 15 minutes late for work, which is pretty good since I work at 8:00 and it's at least a 25 minute drive in morning traffic. My poor little doggie didn't get his morning walk but if I can I'm going to sneak home for lunch and take him out. It's sunny here today! emoticon

Sorry your DH is not taking care of himself Sheila, that is so hard and must be difficult to watch him do that and know its his choice. I know how you take care of yourself, and hope he watches and learns sooner rather than later.

Today I did my strength training and jumped on the rebounder for an hour. I went for a walk by myself with my dog this morning while DH watched DD. Then I took a wonderful hot shower and put my PJ's on and am going to have a relaxing evening, I hope!

Today I did my strength training and took a walk. I also went grocery shopping and am doing some batch cooking tonight to have healthy meals ready for the week. I also did my laundry and some other chores around the house. I have drank all of my water and did some stretching, did some reading. Today was all about taking care of myself.

Sheila it has to be difficult to watch your husband NOT take care of himself. Good for you for continuing to take good care of yourself.

Today my husband (the Diabetic) ordered the pumpkin Mousse for dessert. (He sure wasn't taking care of himself). All I could do was to just continue to enjoy my meal, skip his offers to share with me and ignore his sighs of enjoyment. I worry so about him but there is nothing I can do.
