Moments of loving, learning, and sharing for ROTH’s Beloved Hounds

The Golden Years

He has defied death many times throughout his life-time and this week he took it upon himself to educate us all. It was not to be private, but instead reach the hearts of many. With a rapidly declining outside appearance and body, Merlin continues to amaze all who meet him. At 16 1/2 (that’s nineties for you and me) he has kept his dignity, strength, loyalty, drive for life, and commitment to our unique and special partnership. These are just a few words to describe this miracle boy.

During the first week of our Animal Communication Mentorship Program, he insisted on being in class, at first coming down with us to the lower pasture, something he hasn’t done in a long time.  And later, due to some troublesome and bloody discharges, he triggered individual’s beliefs and emotions, taking them back to their own animals…to last moments, decisions they had made, advice they had been given, feelings they encountered, peer pressure they had received. Many thought he was dying but Merlin soldiered on. Our hearts as one – his and mine, and the never-waning love, support, and limitless dedication from Vin. Our vet and friend was close-by should he call for her.

We listened to him, providing love, support and strength. He spoke to us through inner knowing. We were nudged to give him Dynamite’s Trace Minerals in support of his internal bleeding, together with Helichrysum essential oil. Each day became his, Oliver’s, and Chance’s birthdays, in celebration of all life.

He rests better than he has rested in years and came back with a growing life force and surprised all.  Stronger than before he is still with us. A life lesson for everyone as they go through these golden years.  Our gratitude is overflowing as you were there for us and we there for him.


The boys have entered the final “acts” of their colorful lives. We have journeyed far together through many states and situations, and created a full, beautiful story together. Oliver, since his diagnosis, and riddled with life-threatening disease, is at his happiest. He has begun to chase the horses again (despite our best efforts to stop him), jumps on the bed and has a renewed zest for life.

The beauty in his eyes says it all. He was gifted another chance after his diagnosis and surgery.  We were fortunate to be in the situation to afford to prolong his life and receive the biopsy. Now it’s up to us as a family to bring forth the comfort for his body and take care of him as he has us.

The unconditional love they give naturally will be repaid as we care for them as we would any family member. For they are family.  As their worlds become just that little bit smaller, we will fill it with their desires. 🙂

We wish that for you too. Listen to your hearts to discover their silent and secret language of love.

How to Avoid Taking your Clients Negative Energy


Hope all is well with you and Vin. I don’t know where you are in the world, but am sure you are doing wonderful things! 🙂

I had the opportunity to do Reiki to a little part Shetland rescue today.  She is lovely, but has had a not so great start.  She was born at a nice place, at about 8 months they let a family take her and they ended up not feeding her and the mother.  I was told the mother pony ended up taking the food, so the baby did not get much, if anything.  The baby was tied outside to a manure spreader which ended up moving during that day and the pony got run over by the spreader.  It hurt her hind leg that never got taken care of.  Now the pony has been rescued back to the original family which is where I now board Nibbles. I have started giving the pony Reiki.

Today, after the first session, the pony had obviously released.  It was a lovely and interesting session.

But, my question, tonight I got tremendously depressed, hopeless, forlorn, knew if this kept up I would have to go to my Dr.  Then, it went away.  I also gave Reiki last evening to a lady that had been depressed.  After the session, this a.m., she e-mailed me that she felt fantastic and thank you so much, etc…..
I must be taking on the energy, would you guess?  I visualize a plastic suit to protect me and say a prayer, but any other suggestions?  I know you do not take on energy and don’t need to do this.
If that pony is feeling that way, my gosh….how awful.  She has had some devastating things happened to her and she isn’t even 3 yet.  I want to make a difference in her life, but oh my, I don’t want to feel like that ever again.  I was almost ready for the nutty loony bin.
It is definitely possible to take on the emotions of your clients (both human and animals) even if you say your prayer and cover yourself.  Here’s why.  My guess is you weren’t as covered as you thought you were.  Either you had something distracting your focus allowing stuff to get through or you started empathizing with your client(s) during the session which allows the emotions to come through.
When I’m doing any kind of energy work I always do 2 things.  The first is to take some time to ground myself by putting imaginary, energy roots into the ground, flushing out all my crap into the earth where Mother Earth composts it and I also imagine a stream of light coming into my body through the top of my head (7th chakra) from Heaven.
Then those energies mix together creating me as a conduit or link between heaven and earth.  Then I set my intention to be the conduit  and allow the healing energy of God, the Universe, (whatever word works for you there) to use me and come through me and I also set the intention to allow anything that does not serve this person or myself to pass through me leaving no residual or side effects but instead passes harmlessly through me, going into the ground through my roots.
If I start to feel like I’m being affected by the energy of my client, I first see if there’s a reason for it for me, a lesson or a message for the client.  Once I have a clear idea of it, I take some deep breaths and imagine with each breath that emotion, energy, whatever is flushed through the roots into the ground and then the healing light of God. the Universe, again whatever works for you here, burns any that’s left over.  If I discover that I’m under the influence after the session then I basically do the initial practice above but instead of doing for a future healing, I do it for whatever’s in me at that moment.
Hope that makes sense and helps.  If you’re interested my Medizations Starter Kit has several Meditations that can help you with that and all of them start with that grounding / healing routine I talk about above.  You can purchase and download them from if you think they may help you.
Great work!
