Nanuk's Healing Journey: A Case Study

A Testimonial from Sula Goddard for Nanuk and Bella - Nanuk and Bella’s story...so far

Rachel has treated our dog Bella in the past. The problems we had with Bella have never re- surfaced. We went from fairly regular vet visits to never returning to the vets for the same problem in 6 years. With the healing and advice from Rachel those problems are no longer an issue. So, when my family and I discovered our 10 year old boxer dog Bella was pregnant I contacted Rachel. Firstly, I wanted to just ask advice as we had never had puppies before and also to ask if she might know of homes for them in the future.
 Rachel said she didn’t see a lot of puppies. She saw 2 and one was not so good. She also advised us to be ready sooner rather than later as she thought Bella would have them before anyone had predicted she would.

And so, a week before her ‘due date’ Bella ended up needing an emergency caesarean during which one pups placenta had come away and so it was starved of oxygen and another 2 which were described as deformed and ‘non-viable’ were also lost. I think these two were dead already though. So, we were left with one tiny survivor, who probably would have been the runt if there had been a litter. Rachel suggested we supplement her with milk as Bella wasn’t producing enough milk at that point. She also gave us advice about Bellas diet that would help milk production and general health during a particularly taxing physical time for an older dog. We followed her advice and Bella was doing really well and coping with the new situation so well. I was in touch with Rachel and things seemed to be ok. One day our tiny puppy started to go downhill. She very quickly lost a lot of weight and was very dehydrated. The vets told us she was in critical condition but they couldn’t take her in to help with a drip or anything because she wouldn’t make it without her mum. We left feeling deflated and really worried about how to help the puppy. I contacted Rachel and we arranged a healing session. Before the session began the puppy had not been feeding, was listless and floppy and had started to make a whining sound like she was in pain. It was awful not being able to make her better straight away. We were feeding her with a syringe which is hard and you can’t get a lot in. Pretty much as soon as the session began she stopped making the noise and both dogs lay down together. I left them to it and waited to see what would happen.After the session within a couple of hours the puppy had moved around looking for food. She had some life in her all of a sudden. She took the bottle really well and got a good feed. I was over the moon. It truly felt like she had been pulled back to us. She was drifting away and come back. Rachel stayed in constant contact and was available all day to answer questions and offer advice post healing. Her level of care, advice and compassion is like no other ‘service’ I had ever experienced. Not only was the advice and healing so helpful but the calm reassurance and hope she gave me when I was buried deep in the difficulty of the situation was like a beacon of light. Over the next couple of weeks the puppies health and well-being rippled in peaks and troughs. Some days were good, other days were tough and she kept fading away again. Every time I turned to Rachel she was able to offer healing almost straight away or the following morning. And every time after the session the puppy would gain enough strength to suckle on Bella and take food from the bottle. Things were ok again and so we carried on. But, the rollercoaster wasn’t over yet! The puppy needed so much care it was pretty much intensive treatment for a month. Rachel was with us through it all and I truly felt her support and when necessary her gift to heal and help our little puppy back to a state of more ease. Then there came a day that Nanuk took a sharp turn downhill. This time I really thought we might lose her. She was so weak and dehydrated that she could barely swallow even with syringing water into her mouth. In all honesty we were almost at giving up point too. Then I got a phone call from Rachel. She talked me through trying some things to get pup back up and able to feed. I really needed the help at that point and obviously Nanuk did too. She was doing healing as we were talking on the phone. After another couple of hours Nanuk perked up again and guzzled milk down with great gusto.

What a huge relief it was. She has been high and low as we all have on the journey together. But, at every turn Rachel has been there and been able to bring her back to us long enough to keep her going. We didn’t know how long this was going to go on for and it seemed never ending. She was nearly 4 weeks old now. This was the last session she has had now and since then she has turned a corner for the better and is feeding well, regularly and has started to behave as she normally would at 1 month old. It is so incredible to see her now compared to how she was. We are all infinitely grateful to Rachel and so glad she chooses to share her gift with all those who need help. One session I stayed in with them and it was like a beautiful enveloping warm hug.It was such a bright light that held us and I could feel it. I had been to see Rachel and had healing in person but never distance healing. I understood that it was no different in terms of energy but in practice I had not felt it yet. Now that I have there is no doubt in my mind that her incredibly powerful gifts transcend space and for anyone who has reservations about distance healing for their animals or themselves I can, having experienced both, attest to it being no less powerful or having no less effect. In fact, it’s pretty convenient, especially if it’s hard to transport you pet. Another benefit to it is our whole home felt cleared and was filled with a calm and peace that benefitted all of us. Bella and Nanuk both spent much time resting together after their treatments which was lovely to see, snuggled up together. Bella was amazing and had no post-operative problems and has benefitted hugely from the healing as well as all the advice offered.

We are so intertwined with our pets and no one understands this better than Rachel, that I’ve ever met. Her gifts are amazingly powerful but also so gentle and caring. Her genuine care for you and your animals is actually invaluable. I don’t know many people that would be on call as much as she has been for us. There is no doubt in our minds that without Rachel our little Nanuk would not be with us today. We are eternally grateful.

The Process

When I am remote healing, it is beyond words, and so the description of what happens is always very symbolic.  But the outcome speaks a thousand words. While healing, I am standing up, usually with my eyes closed and I have music playing and candles lit. I then connect remotely with the client and slowly start the session.  I am always taken to what and where needs work first and I am moving around the room with my eyes closed with my hands out in front of me as I conduct and focus energy into the client. It is not as simple as seeing a body as we are more than just the physical. I am presented with so many different things in different ways and some are beyond words. But there are something I can share, for example: 

  • Sometimes I will see an organ or something related to the physical that needs help.
 
  • Then I might  see colour and energy forms as if we were out in the cosmos and I am spinning energy to help in all ways.
 
  • Sometimes I need to work in an area and then another area shows itself, and they both require work at the same time.  I can then split my awareness between both aspects so they can heal together.
 
  • Sometimes I see energy in a symbolic form of dark masses clearing, or any picture could come.
 
  • Sometimes energy needs to be moved and other times it needs to be cut out completely which could be considered like psychic surgery.  It could be likened to stirring something in a pot, or gathering snow into a big snowball and then removing it.
 
  • Sometimes the client will move nearer to where I am, sometimes I move to where they are but most often we meet in a place where time does not exist.
 
  • Sometimes there are messages within the healing and sometimes it is afterwards.

Healing sessions change timelines, which means any projected outcome that may have happened before healing changes, and then the new time line time is then based on the new co-ordinates of the clients energy field.  After each session the healing builds on the last one.  It is truly amazing but it takes time, patience, faith and trust. The healing works in to all the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the client, sometimes on many different dimensions as well as working into their DNA. Much of the time the human family will be brought into the healing of an animal, but the main focus is on them. I always encourage an animal’s human custodian to book healing for themselves if they can or book a joint session to support the healing process.  If they decline, I accept that and do what I can with them in a session focussed on the animal itself. So with this in mind, when we talk about the healing sessions it is challenging if not impossible to convey the whole process. But, the evidence of the changes show in the clients health and wellbeing.

The story and process of healing Bella and Nanuk

Bella’s human family contacted me to ask for advice as Bella was ten years of age, and they had recently found out that she was pregnant. Psychically I knew that she would have a complicated pregnancy, as well as the puppies, coming earlier than expected with puppies passing and maybe only one surviving. I made a decision not to relay this to her family as I did not want them to worry.  When I later passed this information on to her family, they said they preferred not to have know as they would have worried too much for too long. Once fully into her pregnancy, I relayed to them it would be a good idea to make Bella a den which would allow her to nest as well as give her some peace from the younger members of the family.

 Later the family contacted me to say that Bella had had a ‘C’ section.  She had two ‘deformed’ puppies which did not survive, and another did not make it as the placenta separated, which is why she had to go in for surgery ahead of her original due date.  I messaged the family to say that she had done so well and recommended they give Bella and the pup some rescue remedy to help them along. The family were up all night with Bella as she started to recover from the trauma of the surgery, anaesthetic and of course the loss of her pups. They then asked what was the best milk for her if they needed to supplement her feed in any way.  They explained she was suckling well and passing so at the time they felt she was doing the best she could under the circumstances but Bella was not eating. I said she was probably nauseous and to make some fresh ginger water from grated ginger and mix it in with some honey and coconut water and syringe it in to the side of her mouth and asked them to let me know how it went. They messaged me back to say that she loved the coconut water with honey and ginger and seemed less nauseous and had started to eat and drink lots by her self.   I suggested that they give Bella some superfoods: 

  • Organic Barley grass juice powder
 
  • Organic Bee pollen
 
  • Honey on the spoon
 
  • Coconut water and coconut milk to help keep her hydrated while she was breastfeeding.
 
  • Berries of all kind: Blueberries - raspberries
 
  • Microgreens

I reminded them that Bella was an older girl, 10 years of age and needed a lot of down and quiet time. The pup was feeding plenty and was putting on weight, and Bella and the pup were bonding well. A few days later  The family then messaged to say the pup was not doing very well. They explained how Nanuk was losing weight they were trying to feed her puppy milk to compensate. I explained that that Bella’s milk would have water in it as well, so it was a good idea to get some good quality water, boil it and let it cool and give her some of that as well. The pup was still not taking milk.  The family was trying to make their own milk for her and read it was a good idea to put eggs into .but she was still not taking anything. I said that although many people suggested eggs I would not recommend giving them to her. I suggested she make her milk and add barley grass powder to it. Nanuk was taken to the vet who they said she was critical and so they booked remote healing. The vet had told the family that Nanuk was critical and that she probably would not make it.  Bella and her human family had already benefitted from healing in the past so they trusted the process of healing to help Bella and the pup in all ways and so booked remote healing. I asked them to send me a clear picture of the puppy as we needed to start healing which I scheduled for the next morning as they had contacted me late that night.

I advised her human mum to sit with them during the healing session but not to focus on Bella and Nanuk too much and just to let her eyes soften. I advised this because where ever our intention goes energy flows.  And if someone is overly worried and anxious about someone, that energy can feed into them which does not support the healing process. While healing, I worked on Bella and Nanuk at the same time. As the session was due to come to a close, I was promoted to continue working, which I did. All the time I was healing, I would energetically work with the puppy and then Bella and then both at the same time and then back to the Nanuk again. The first healing session was to focus healing to Nanuk to increase her life- force, but a lot of work took place around her belly region as well. After the healing, I messaged to let them know how the healing session went and said I would catch up with them in the morning to see how they were both doing. The family messaged me back to say that she felt like the healing had saved Nanuk’s life.

Follow up callThe mum explained to me that during and after the healing session Bella and Nanuk had slept a lot, and when they woke up, the family tried to feed Nanuk again. This time she did not whine as she had done previously and once they added the barley grass to her milk mixture, as I had suggested, she had 8-9ml of milk straight from the bottle.  You can imagine the families relief. As usual, I told her to keep me posted all the time and let me know of any changes as and when they occurred. The journey continuedNanuk then began to try and suckle from Bella and then have her extra milk from the bottle afterwards as Bella was not producing enough milk for her. But I said it was important for her to suckle from Bella as it was not just milk she was receiving. Each nipple allows energy to flow from Bella to the pup that is feeding her in more ways than just the physical. At this point, her weight was 305g but she was very susceptible to losing weight very quickly, and She was still struggling. Bella then stopped eating and just had gurgles in her tummy, but the two of them were snuggling up close to each other, which was a good thing.  leave the eggs for now But leave the eggs for now I told them to give Bella a mix of coconut water, coconut milk and honey. The drink would help hydrate her and restore her electrolytes and it would kick start her system as well as help with waves of nauseas as well. Bella took the drink that she was offered and seemed to feel easier. Another healing session that nightI was told they both slept throughout the whole session and when they woke up Nanuk was much stronger, and Bella was happy to eat her recommended organic beef stew. I messaged them back to send my love and to let them know I would be in contact the following morning. The mum was still very concerned about Nanuk’s weight and kept weighing her all the time, and I asked her to stop doing this.  I explained that everything was working and she needed to try and relax and to stop focussing on the process of weighing her as it would only mirror back her anxieties and fears. The mum agreed and left the scales alone, and over the next few days, Nanuk finally started to look like she was putting on weight. I advised to let Nanuk suckle a bit to get the energy from Bella, then let her sleep then give her the bottle when she woke up and to keep to this routine going, which they did. Another healing session As before I worked Primarily with Nanuk then with Bella, then with the both of them and then back to Nanuk again. Every healing session is unique, and all energy that is focussed will always adapt to exactly what is required at any given time.  The healing energy frequency would pulse and change throughout the whole session as we moved from mother to pup, working on the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of them both.  Very often in the healing, we would Soul talk with the pup encouraging her to use her will to stay here.  At one point, I saw Nanuk and her human custodian in another life, and I was encouraged her to bring her focus back to the here and now which she did. We kept working with Nanuk’s life- forces as well as paying a lot of attention to her belly region. The next dayThe following morning I heard that Bella and Nanuk were so much more lively and happy again.  The healing was working to move them both forward in the best possible way. Bella was also producing more milk and Nanuk was suckling a lot and also happy to take the bottle as well. I recommend that Bella should have her food increased and to include all grass - fed meat, lots of fruits and vegetables as well as all her super-foods.

Another healing sessionHer human mum was obviously really tired from the whole experience, so I advised that she should lay down next to them while the healing was to take place so she too could benefit.  The healing energy that I channel is very strong and powerful and has a far- reaching effect on those whom I am working with and those nearby.  During the healing I worked on all of them from one to the other and then all together. At the end of the healing session, I could see them all showered in light. Follow up callThe human mum told me that she felt the healing energy work with them all and felt the showering of light. Afterwards, Bella got up, had something to eat and decided to get up and  to go and sit outside in the sun. The pup woke up after a deep sleep and drank 20ml of milk and then fell asleep again with a little fat belly. She thanked me for the work and said it was truly amazing. I advised her to keep to all the dietary advice I had given as well as letting Bella eat coconut oil off the spoon and bananas which she did and loved it all.  I also said she might like treats of dried figs and dates and again she loved them. As usual, I gave lots of encouragement and support to the family who were doing so well with everything. Healing while on the phone Sometimes Nanuk would take a step backwards, and the family were always concerned and so would call me.  On a few occasions ,I offered healing over the phone while they were sitting with her.  The healing helped her over a hurdle and supported the family enough for Nanuk to regain her energy and momentum for life. Energetically clearing the DenOver time Nanuk was becoming stronger but then Bella started to leave her for long periods.  Under normal circumstances, this would not have been as much of a concern.  But Nanuk required the protective healing energy of her mum, and so I suggested that she energetically clear the space.  It included moving the Den to a new space, washing all the bedding and using sage to clear and cleanse the room.  After they did this Bella, was much more happy to sit with Nanuk in her new cleared and cleansed space. You too can buy and learn to use sage here https://rachelbolton.life/rachel-bolton-shop/#products More healing We worked with Bella first then the pup then her human companion then to Bella and them to the pup  and then to all three of them. As I was working I realised that everybody’s mid section required help and all were showing the same kind of energy that required clearing, healing and strengthening. Follow up call to the familyWhile talking to Bella’s mum, I asked her to imagine how a huge torch would make a circle of light on the ground. I continued to explain this is what I saw all around them at the end of their session.  She replied she had seen a green circle and a stream of light coming towards and around all three of them. As well she asked If I had worked on their tummies as everybody’s was gurgling and rumbling through the whole session. I smiled and said, yes. Another healing sessionAs time went on, Nanuk and Bella were both gaining strength but still required support. During the healing session so much cleared for both Bella and Nanuk as well as strengthening them both. What was interesting, at the end of this session the symbolic imagery of a small pixie around the pup came to me.  She was stomping around and not at all happy. At first I was unsure what this was but then I interpreted it to be her young daughter. During the healing, I cleared this energy pattering and Soul talked with the daughter/pixie as well. The follow-up callI asked the mother if she had felt the healing energy and asked if her daughter was a little fed up with the amount of time she had spent with Bella and the pup. I explained that it was nothing bad or anything to worry about and how I had cleared that energy.  I also said that I was sure that Bella and Nanuk were so much stronger. She explained to me that she had indeed felt the healing and was very emotional through the whole thing.  She said it was very apt relating the energy of a pixie to her young daughter and explained she had been very unhappy with the amount of time she had been spending with the puppy and Bella. But now the whole situation felt so much better since that energy had been cleared. The previous evening after healing, they had also taken the daughter in to see Nanuk and Bella, and they had all sat together feeling much better.

Another healing sessionAs usual, we worked on Nanuk, then Bella and then the two of them together.  After this healing session, Bella decided to spend longer out of the nesting box, taking time for her self and getting more sun.  The human mum also felt so much happier and invigorated and even had the energy to bounce on the tramline with her children and said she felt ACE! Learning about the benefits of healthy eating for your dog During the whole process, the family had learnt so much more about healthy eating for your dog and was amazed at how Bella loved the food and how much good food they could share with her.  One day she messaged to tell me that Bella had eaten better than the whole family! A course to help you feed your dog more naturally - Conscious Eating For Your and Your DogWe all need to eat well

A gift of healing to NanukAt one point, it was believed that Nanuk had fluid in her lungs, and the family were  overly concerned and wanted to take her to the vets. But this would have been very traumatic for everyone including, Bella. After a conversation, they decided to relax and accepted a gift of healing to her. I then started the process of remote healing and afterwards, Nanuk was much happier, and the appointment at the vet was cancelled. Check-ins every morningEvery morning I would check in with the family to see how Bella and Nanuk were doing though out the whole journey and finally, the news became better and better. “pup-date"“She’s doing well. Here she is curled up on me for a moment. Too precious! So she’s feeding and suckling more. Both sleepy pup and Bella boo. It feels cleaner and clearer around here, and so do I."

Nanuk continued to thrive yet I would still check-in “Hi, pup is feeding so well and with such gusto! She has been suckling loads too and seems much perkier. Bella is also great, and eating well. She has been in the bed a lot more too." I enquire later that day as well"Everyone is doing well. Nanuk has been very hungry and suckling too. Then lots of sleeping. Both hounds are happy in their bed. There seems to be more milk available from Bella now too. She’s decided she’ll only eat if I feed her in her bed from a spoon! I’ve tried elsewhere, but for now, I’m indulging the queen dog. It feels good around here. XxxX" That night they both slept through the night really well, which allowed the whole family to get a good nights sleep. As time went on Nanuk continued to gain strength Look at them now x

Bella’s past healing with Rachel  Bella had healing with Rachel because of problems with her stomach. Bella had suffered with colitis in the past and had developed infections on the outside of her body due to her internal problems. Visits to the vets were expensive and the problem re-surfaced again so it didn’t seem like the medication and recommendations were quite right for Bella. Bella had a healing session with Rachel. Afterwards her physical problems improved noticeably and we were also given a wealth of valuable information that would also support her. Bella’s session with Rachel helped her physically but also provided great insight about Bella that has widened my understanding of her and made our bond even stronger.
