Nala's death left a hole in her family's heart!
For many families, pets earn the title of "fur children" or "fur babies". They fill a part of our heart that no one can - they make our lives whole.
They speak a language through their eyes that only we as owners understand. They love us more than we love ourselves.
They become our best friends, loving us unconditionally, protecting us and giving us endless hours of companionship. Some of us love our pets more than we like people!
When we suddenly find ourselves without our beloved companion, our world falls apart and the grief we feel is indescribable.
I have lost many pets over the years, but most recently, I lost 2 cats in 3 months.
It took several days to stop crying and many weeks getting used to not hearing their collar bells ring as they scampered through the house.
To get through those very difficult days, I relied on meridian tapping to help neutralize the emotional sting of my loss. It help me to face the empty collars, their absence at the door when I came home and the empty food bowls, without crying like a baby.
If you or someone you love is suffering right now, please try the following tapping script and keep using it until you feel better.
It won't make you forget your pet, it will help you function during the intial days of your loss.
It will "calm your inner pet grief storm"
If you are unfamiliar with tapping, please see the "introduction to tapping" link at the top of this page. It will provide you with everything you need to know!
Please substitute your pets name where applicable and change any words that fit your current situation - make it your own.
Karate chop point:
"Even though I can't stop crying, I love and accept myself anyway”
"Even though it so hard to imagine life without Nala, I love who I am, despite feeling this way”
"Even though I don't know how I can face tomorrow without her, I accept these feelings and everything they mean to me”
