Bodie - dog with car sickness.
J - "Why are we here, what is the situation, how bad is it?
C - explanation...tried it all...
J - chilled dog... "do you know why this has come about....?"
[talking about it....client feeling...Bodie reacting quite severely......whining, releasing....needing attention....something going on with emotion, trauma....James gently pushing him away........mind right up, chew something...little bit anxious....]
[Client voice high, even higher energy, even Jame's voice, a little higher...explains to client...]
What we are going to do is have a look at his behavior, and see what actually happens, what state he gets into, then get into PM, how to build a new relationship - he does have a level of anxiety with him...
with that level of anxiety, if we can bring his mind right down by teaching him to be present..he's going to do a lot whining and yawning...we're going to get him, so he completely crashes out...and then from there go to stage 2.
He's got such a mixture of feelings which is interesting..
Most of time chilled out...but can be as above.
Observed reaction going to the car....and how they both dealt with the pressure.
[Bodie reluctant. Tail between legs.. Resistant. Client creating resistance, pulling on lead....pressure, release....then lifted him up and put him in car...].not happy, whimpering, anticipated journey ahead...
Thought activity high....feeling anxious, crying......[bless him...feel his anxiety, feel his upset].
Arrive home. Leaves car.
Now been sick outside...deep anxiety...only way to release tension. "literally throw it up".
Need to calm him right down.
By lifting him up, he's had not choices..by getting him quiet, keeping him calm through process, work at his pace, so it's his choice, (once you lift him up, he has no choice - complete overload).
[Be sensitive to owner - defensive a little, as she has tried....spent time....]
So solution, stage 1 and stage 2.
Stage 1 - bringing Bodie into PM
How he releases his anxiety by us supporting him with peace of mind.
Stage 2 - entering deep healing process
Before we can help him with the car, building a special relationship with him and his owner first.
First exercise - taking responsibility
It's a direct tool, to see how the animal and human are interacting with each other. (*Details of this can be found in the classroom, stage 2, day 28?)
Helps us to see the bigger picture in their relationship.
1. We're going to go into PM with him and start working around him so we can get help him get peace of mind. He's not peaceful at the moment, so we will help him with this by getting Present.
Even when J tried to get Present, he tried to get into his space [J gently pushed him away].
Stage 1, is to help him let go of all of this.
Will show you exactly how we are going to do this.
Second exercise - helping client get Present.
Getting her mind focussed on her senses, and into that peaceful state of being so she can then share this feeling with Bodie and help him to be peaceful with his situation.
(All details with how to get Present, in classroom, day 1).
After teaching client how to get into PM, now share with Bodie. Sitting on floor is great way
Bodie 6.56) at last Bodie starting to find a quieten mind and look for somewhere to settle himself down...[scratching, on settee] - stay present, whilst he settles.. [congratu]...excellent, that's brilliant, - if you feel lost his attention, put your hand by his side to get it again...do it again very gently lovely, beautiful - (lifting hand and putting it on the sofa...brings his attention back-
Sleepy, comfy in himself, as he finds presnt moment. well done to him...so soft now...let's get present again... he sleeps....now got him presnt...focus back to James, be normal....if he wakes up...get present again...(gone somewhere he's not familiar with) once a day...5 - 10 minutes...[zero] desperate for this....desperate for peace of mind....important place, in their relationships....(all of the past, being reset).
