Grief and support for transition
Death is an important part of life, synonymous with birth.
Whether you and your animal need help during the dying process or afterwards, I am happy to be there for you .
I will accompany you holistically (regardless of religion) through this demanding time with my specialist knowledge and empathy.
When my two tomcats Blacky and Tigi tragically passed out in quick succession in 2013, I was neither open to animal communication, nor was I a therapist myself. Until then, I hadn't dealt with emotional blockages or trauma either. So I suffered a lot from the loss and hardly knew what to do. But from today's perspective, the loss was an impetus for change.
A lot has happened since then and I have developed further both emotionally and professionally. I dealt with the subject of death and also with the emotional processes that lie behind deep grief. Through all of these experiences, I see death today as an important life process.
Supporting people and animals in these challenging times has become a matter close to my heart.
Animal communication helps to find out what the animal wants
Energetic therapy using Bach flowers, homeopathy, colors, chakras etc. helps in the process
Optimal support directly on site, parts in remote therapy possible
Animal communication helps the soul to let go
Emotion therapy helps people and, if necessary, animal family members to process emotionally in the grief phase
Remote treatment is very possible here
* To this day (as of June 2021) I have holistically different animal species in phases 1-3 (see below) and as support for
People and animals are accompanied in the process of veterinary euthanasia, as well as through animal communication after death.
We are happy to see together how I can optimally accompany you and your animal.
The dying process and the 4 elements
From a Buddhist point of view, the body consists of four elements that dissolve one after the other in the process of dying. The elements are fire (energy), water (blood), earth (bones and flesh) and air (breathing). Another element is the space or ether into which the soul is released after physical death.
1st phase: All elements are still in equilibrium
The animal is fully conscious, is still eating, participating in life, but is already moving less. They are sick and / or old and can still come to terms with the current situation. But you can tell that a big change is imminent. How exactly this phase will take place cannot be foreseen.
2nd phase: The earth dissolves in water
The body feeds on its resources. Matter dissolves, stable bodily functions begin to dissolve. The animal usually looks for a quiet, safe and mostly cool place. It seems very calm, peaceful and relaxed. Above all, the animal needs understanding and the security of its human being.
3rd phase: the water dissolves in fire
This can be called the storm before the calm. The animals bloom again, suddenly start to eat, they move and appear “healthy”. At this point, secretions from the nose, ears, eyes and mouth, as well as vomiting and diarrhea, are so-called detoxification reactions. The body gets rid of everything that could "hinder" it on its further path.
4th phase: The fire dissolves into thin air
This phase can be described as the calm after the storm. Now all forces are almost exhausted. The eyes and the gaze are directed to the beyond, now and then the gaze still flares up here, very rarely. Breathing becomes significantly weaker with clear emphasis on exhalation. There is a physical restlessness with kicking, kicking and the apparent attempt to get up, the animal almost shakes off its body in this phase.
5th phase: The air dissolves into space
Breathing stops more and more until it comes to a complete standstill with one last long exhalation. A wave flows through the body and the heart stops beating. In this phase it makes sense to open the window so that the soul can find its way.
Do animals suffer in the process of dying?
There is no general answer to whether animals suffer in the dying phase. Most of the time, the human being in particular has emotional difficulties with the process, as ego-oriented thinking implies this. We then transfer our own thoughts and emotions to the animal's situation. Whether an animal really needs to be euthanized has to be decided on a case-by-case basis. If the animal can and is allowed to walk independently, accompaniment is usually very useful.
A seriously ill cat in the process of dying told me the following in conversation:
Dear body, do you need medical help?
“Yes, it's coming to an end. I can do it alone, but it's a real fight. It will take a few more days. "
It's very difficult for your people to take. Hence the question of whether a vet should help with the transition?
“I don't need this help, but if you want it, that's fine. I will do it on my own, but it will not be easy to see. "
We just don't want you to suffer unnecessarily.
"I understand that. It is not a suffering, but a normal process. But now that the soul has already gone, we can have the vet come. "
Although she was physically ill, she did not speak of suffering. It's a normal process. And yes, that's basically it too. She didn't judge the pain the way we'd think. She just accepted what was, mentally and physically. In this phase the soul had already partially separated from the body. A few days earlier this was not the case. This is an important process that may not be fully completed in the case of sudden death. In this situation the soul usually needs active support.
Suffering as we define it is a mental process. Some animals feel this way and want veterinary support. And it always depends very much on the disease in question. Others see it as a normal part of life and want to determine the end of their life for themselves. Regardless of what you decide as a guardian, I will also be happy to accompany you emotionally in the dying phase of your animal and in the subsequent phase of mourning.
