Dogs and their people are happier and healthier with PetMassage

We are our own seers.

Alyce Sorokie, the author of Gut Wisdom, Understanding and Improving Digestive Health, shared a powerful poem during a presentation I attended in Chicago. I’d like to share it with you.

  • Chapter 1
    I walk down the street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I fall in. I am lost… I am helpless. It isn’t my fault. It takes forever to find a way out.
  • Chapter 2
    I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I pretend I don’t see it. I fall in again. I can’t believe I am in the same place. But, it isn’t my fault. It still takes me a long time to get out.
  • Chapter 3
    I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I see it is there. I still fall in. It’s a habit. My eyes are open. I know where I am. It is my fault. I get out immediately.
  • Chapter 4
    I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I walk around it.
  • Chapter 5
    I walk down another street.

This is a description of noticing that we may not be aware of what we are doing. We may need to learn to notice, to become aware, and place a higher value on being completely present. We are our own seers. We are in control. We have choices. We are what we think about.

This applies to our canine clients, as well as ourselves.

  • These are the kinds of things that dogs address and resolve during, after, and with consistent ongoing PetMassage.
  • These are the kinds of things that dogs’ owners address and resolve during, after, and with consistent ongoing PetMassage.
  • These are the kinds of things that we practitioners address and resolve as we become more proficient at providing PetMassage.

    Short and to the point. What an eye opener.
