Your Rainbow Bridge

Animals Are Trying to Reach You…

Kim Shotola
Mar – Apr 2022 • Vol 3, No 120

The heart and soul connection with an animal or human loved one is eternal. After a loss, it can be hard to move forward in life, and this grief can be devastating. Many people believe they won’t see their loved ones again or be able to communicate with them. That’s not so. Those that have crossed into the spirit world are often trying to reach you in tangible ways such as:

  • You have a dream about them.
  • You see an indentation on your bed or other furniture.
  • You notice something of theirs has been moved.
  • You see a glimpse of a shadow, an outline, or their physical likeness.
  • You notice an animal in your home is staring at something, and you don’t understand why.
  • You sense their presence near you.
  • You feel their touch on your body.

Got the Winter Blues? Your Animals Do Too!

What to Do…

Kim Shotola
Jan – Feb 2022 • Vol 3, No 119

Animals tune in to their pet parents all the time. With less sunlight during winter, people can be more vulnerable to depression. Pets not only can sense this, they may share the blues, especially if they are so connected to their human or feel that their home life has been impacted. If they’ve experienced any kind of loss, the situation can be more challenging during winter.

If your animal is sleeping more, wants to be alone, is disinterested in activities, or has a change in appetite, behavior or elimination, they may have depression. A vet can rule out any physical conditions.

When the emotional well-being of an animal is affected, they may become withdrawn, stressed, anxious, or even exhibit destructive behavior or aggression. Just like with people, a disruption in their mental state can also lead to health issues. To benefit your animal and yourself, consider the following suggestions.

Intuition & Your Animals

Intuitive Development to Receive & Understand Guidance

Kim Shotola
September – October 2021 • Vol 3, No 117

Animals play a huge role in intuition. From your pets to wild animals, they want to help guide you in your life. When you become aware of how animals are trying to reach and teach you, you have an awareness about life that is simply profound.

Intuition is also about nature. On a hike, the majority of people go from point A to point B. If they used their intuition, they could tune in to animals along with Mother Earth and her elements, and receive their messages. When you strengthen your connection with animals, nature, and Mother Earth, your intuition increases and creates a ripple effect in your life such as:

  • You can know what animals, nature, and Mother Earth are trying to tell you.
  • You have more of a feeling of self-worth while standing in your truth.
  • You have more clarity in your daily life, and your path and purpose seem clearer.
  • You find it easier to stay present and grounded while finding balance and harmony amidst challenges.
  • You understand humanity as a whole better, including individuals, which can inspire you to create a ripple effect that will benefit others.

Hot Summer Tips for Animals

Summer Can Be a Fun Adventure for Your Animals Too

Kim Shotola
July – August 2021 • Vol 3, No 116

Summer is here, and that often means heat, traveling, and noise concerns. Here are some tips to keep in mind when it comes to your animals. Heat can be a factor, so think of ways you can bring the cool to your animals:

  • Refreshing kiddie pools and troughs make great cool-down time for dogs. You can hook up a misting system for your animals that cools the area down.
  • If you hose or bathe your horse, it’s better to squeegee the water off afterwards so their coat doesn’t retain the heat.
  • Special, elevated pet beds can help keep your dog or cat more cool.
  • Deshedding brushes or tools can help to remove the undercoat from dogs, cats, rabbits, and horses.
  • Keep in mind that grains can heat up the body, along with ‘hot’ proteins like chicken and lamb. Your animals may need a ‘time out’ from these during the hot months.

Flower Essences for Animals

Keep in Mind the Healing Powers of Flowers and Nature

Kim Shotola
May – June 2021 • Vol 3, No 115

What are Flower Essences?

Edward Bach was a London pathologist, bacteriologist, and physician whose clinical experience showed that the cause of illness is linked to emotions. His research indicated that a positive state of well-being could be achieved through the energies found in flowers, bushes, trees, and special waters. He created the first flower essences in the 1930s. You may have heard of Rescue Remedy, a blend of five of his 39 essences, that can help calm both people and animals, especially in traumatic

Flower essences are created by placing a flower or part of a plant in water, placing it in sunlight, and allowing the water to take on the vibrational energies of that aspect of the plant. They work on a mental, emotional, physical and spiritual level. If you can bring your pet’s body back into balance, called homeostasis, then behavioral or physical issues have the ability to be improved or resolved.

Your Animals in Spring

How Will the Seasonal Change Affect Your Animals?

Kim Shotola
March – April 2021 • Vol 3, No 114

Daylight savings time occurs on March 14th, where we “spring forward,” while the spring season officially starts on March 20th. We understand the many ways that spring affects us, but it’s also important to be aware of how these changes can affect your animals.

The days grow longer, and there’s more sunshine. When you’re leaving your home, you can tell your animal out loud that you will be back in a specific number of hours or while there is still sunlight. If you are going to be home at night, you can let them know you’ll be home when the moon is out. When traveling for an extended period of time, like three days, you can let your animal know you will be gone for three suns or three moons. Speaking to your animal every time you leave can really help put them at ease that you will return around a certain time, especially for those pets that are anxious.

Animals & Gratitude

Mother Nature Is Honored to Offer Us So Much!

Kim Shotola
November-December 2020 • Vol 3, No 112

As Thanksgiving rolls around, our hearts turn to all that we are grateful for—even after such a turbulent year. For most of us, there’s an animal or three in our lives where the thankfulness goes both ways. We are indeed grateful for the incredible animals that are in our lives now, those that have shared the past with us, and those that will be a part of our future. We also appreciate the vast array of nature’s bountiful benefits that are provided to us every day, including Mother Earth’s medicine chest. Let us remember to be thankful for all we have in our lives, including the little things.

Thank your animals for their presence, for being there for you. Tell your animals out loud that you love them and are grateful they are in your life. You can even be specific and tell them what they bring to your life, such as love, happiness, laughter, companionship, comfort, and protection. Thank your pets and also the wild ones for the important lessons and messages they have given you. Be grateful that, at any time, you can learn holistic animal care and call on your innate ability to speak intuitively to animals and to nature.
