But I know I’m gonna change that tune When I’m back on top, back on top in June – Dean Kay & Kelly Gordan

Frankiecapone, my border collie rescue pup still trembles at a cross word or a raised voice. Tension in the air sends him to his place under the bed, or worse yet trembling in a corner. His sensitivity to energies often reminds us that energies give out energies. Often times, we don’t even realize how scattered, harsh our energies are until we see our poor boy cowering somewhere. Yet he knows he is loved. Frankie is the one who each day jumps on the bed, every inch of his body wagging with joy to see us once again. Thank the gods that this intelligent being forgives the worries others put him through, and knows beyond a shadow of doubt that we love him. People are often like this. Battered, bruised, beat up by life, feeling afraid at the smallest slight or problems, we hope in this work to give a bit of hope, the knowledge that we are loved. When we give out love, we will have it returned. Sometimes as time passes, we find it hard to forgive, but when we forgive, we send love, we get the whole body wagging with love.
Animal totems: Snow bird: Bro Snow bird is actually black-headed wren. The ancients believed that Snowbird brings messages from our passed over loved ones. His totem heralds the coming of snow, to remind us to find a place of warmth, both physically and emotionally. His totem reminds us to seek out people who will feel loved from to return the love. His medicine shares with us the ability to not worry, Divine will give us our needs and dreams
