Animals March 22 2017
Welcome to this week’s newsletter and card reading.
First, I do my own interpretations then; I write what is written in a booklet I received with the cards.
Animals from the Life Purpose Oracle Card deck
The card reads: You understand animals and communicate with them intuitively. Trust your inner guidance, as the animals are part of your life’s work.
Most of us have animals and they become members of our family. We love them and they give us unconditional love. They sense when we are down and comfort us. They play with us and amuse us. Some of them even talk to us. Sometimes we take them for granted and this is a message to love them and spend time with them. I did a reading recently and gave the sitter lots of information from her dog whom was really her best friend. It gave her such comfort knowing he was still around. If you have lost a family animal know they are still around.
In this card we see a leopard snuggling up to a little girl. Leopards are graceful and powerful big cats. They are very adaptable and can live in many different places across the globe. They are also nocturnal and spend their nights hunting instead of sleeping. Although they are solitary animals and do not live in families, leopards nevertheless have strong maternal bonds. Even though the young become independent at about 22 months, the mother may continue to share kills with her offspring until they become totally self-sufficient. http://www.livescience.com/27403-leopards.html
We are like leopards in several ways. We are adaptable to different situations when something new arises. If we must move, we learn new things where we move to and adapt to the atmosphere of people. I believe the strongest part of the message is how we relate to our mothers. Most of us turn to our mothers when we want advice, or when we are older, to visit with them. Although we are self-sufficient we always seem to rely on our mothers. They have the experience and know all about life’s endeavors. She shares this with us as we age. Remember to recognize this bond with your mother if she is still with us or passed. She brought you into the world and gave you the greatest gift of life.
From the booklet:
Your life purpose involves working with animals. You love them, and they love you. You understand and appreciate their kind and gentle hearts, and you frequently stand up for their rights. In fact, you can feel and hear communications from living creatures. This card is a validation for you to trust these intuitive insights and your inner guidance about ways to connect with the animal kingdom.
Any career that you get involved in will benefit from your adding animals into the mix. For instance, having a pet on-site at your store or office will open everyone’s hearts and bring joy to all. You may find yourself doing volunteer or charity work on behalf of animals, including rescuing them at shelters or bringing awareness to their rights.
With your keen animal-communication abilities, you may also enjoy one-on-one work as a caregiver. The list of careers in this field is vast, so be sure to spend time outdoors in nature, and give considerable thought to your options.
Let’s talk Health
I just read an article in the Consumer Reports about Hypothyroidism.
I am sharing this information because I suffer from this sometimes debilitating disease. Several years ago I was taken by ambulance to the hospital because my doctor thought I was having a heart attack. I had all the symptoms and my ekg showed something was not right. After 5 days in the hospital I was released and sent to a cardiologist to monitor me going forward. The only thing the doctors could see from all my testing was that my thyroid function tests were very abnormal. I returned to my internist and she said it wasn’t my thyroid and it was probably my nerves. My response was that I experienced my symptoms while holding my 9 pound newborn grandson on my shoulder. That is NOT my nerves!! So since I didn’t need a specialist referral I made an appointment with an endocrinologist and he confirmed the symptoms were definitely from my thyroid. I have to be tested every 3 months to be sure my levels are correct. If they aren’t my symptoms return.
I was first diagnosed with Hypothyroidism during my first nervous breakdown in 2003. The doctor told me I have Hashimotos Thyroiditis and depression is one of the symptoms. So most of my mental illness is due to this out of whack hormone. That is why I keep my doctor appointments regularly. Between my medication for this and my psychiatric medications I stay balanced and live a happy life now.
Please read this excerpt from the report because you may have some symptoms that can be related to this disease. If you think you may have it, see your doctor to be tested.
Up to 15 percent of adults over age 65 have hypothyroidism, an under-active thyroid. When the butterfly-shaped thyroid gland at the front of the neck produces too little thyroid hormone (thyroxine, or T4), it can slow essential body processes, including your heart rate and metabolism.
Hypothyroidism commonly associated with type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol, is treated with a daily dose of synthetic thyroxine (Levoxyl, Synthroid, and generic).
Doctors diagnose it by looking for elevated levels of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) in the blood.
This condition, often triggered by an autoimmune thyroid disorder, progresses slowly and has vague symptoms – cold intolerance, fatigue, memory problems, weight gain, constipation, dry skin-often dismissed as normal parts of aging.
If you suspect you have hypothyroidism, talk with your doctor and take the following steps for accurate test results:
***avoid biotin supplements for at least three days before. They can affect results.
***Make sure the lab is testing your TSH, not just your T4. The TSH test is much more sensitive.
***Reschedule if you have an acute illness, such as a cold or diarrhea, which can suppress TSH and affect results.
***Borderline result? Your doctor should retest before starting you on meds. Use the same lab if possible.
