Cookie Bounces Back
when the mass was discovered.
by Lisa Barash, January, 2009
Cookie, our 7 year old guinea pig
never complains. She is active, cheerful, and strong willed. So when
we were told by a friend who was watching her that she felt a large mass
in her neck, we were stunned. Cookie didn't appear to be in discomfort,
although she'd curiously rest her head on her food bowl. I thought,
well what is the vet going to do for a 7 year old guinea pig with a
mass? I was saddened at the thought.
I took her to the vet the next day,
and since he was stunned at her good health at such an advanced age,
opted to operate the next day. Little did we know that Cookie would be
in for a much longer recovery than expected. She was traumatized by the
surgery, and was not eating for days afterwards. She was in and out of
the hospital, and had more anesthesia to grind down her teeth, because
she wasn't eating. Initially we thought it was a mistake to have
subjected this happy and otherwise healthy guinea pig to this kind of
surgery at her age. We weren't hopeful she would live through this.
At that time, I called Nedda for
help. Nedda spent some time talking with Cookie who had much to say.
Cookie told Nedda she was so upset at the whole ordeal and when I
mentioned to Nedda that there were plenty of orbs around her cage before
surgery, Nedda asked Cookie about them. She told Nedda that she was
talking to the angels, but wouldn't elaborate. Nedda asked Cookie
whether she was willing to accept a healing, and she was reluctant
although willing. During the healing, I noticed that Cookie looked
calmer and more peaceful than even before surgery. She curled up and
fell asleep. Needless to say, every day after that Cookie got stronger
and started eating on her own. Incidentally, the orbs disappeared at
that point. Interesting!
called Nedda for a second healing when I found a mass on her underside.
This was very distressing, because in no way were we going to subject
her to another surgery. At that point when I asked Nedda for a healing
of her new mass, I wasn't hopeful. How could it just disappear? Now we
were tempting fate, I thought. A few weeks after Nedda's healing, I
felt NO evidence of this protruding mass! I couldn't believe it!
On a final note, I contacted Nedda
for a third healing when Cookie was having lots of rectal/bladder pain
supposedly from a bladder stone. She got another healing and this time
Cookie was willing to accept it. The day Nedda gave her a healing she
had lots of pain and blood in her urine. The very next day, the pain
had subsided and the blood was completely gone.
like her old self.
I believe wholeheartedly in the
miracle and power of energy work. With love, patience, kindness, and
prayer we can work to heal this world one person, and one animal at a
time. Nedda is one of these special miracle workers!

Pete Stay Grounded
by Nedda Wittels
[Names were changed
to protect privacy.]
A horse trainer from Kentucky
asked me to speak with a gelding named Pete who was being trained as
a show jumper. Pete had been abandoned by his previous owner and the stable
wanted to show him as a hunter/jumper so he could be sold to pay his
board. He was so badly behaved,
the trainer feared he might be
According to the trainer, Pete
couldn’t seem to tolerate any leg contact and would spook at
everything. Training him
was extremely difficult because it was hard to keep his attention.
Since jumping requires a great deal of concentration, the
training wasn’t going very well.
The trainer said, "Anything you can suggest to help this horse
will be appreciated."
As soon as I tuned in to speak with
Pete, I felt that he was having trouble staying in his body.
With his permission, I scanned his energy.
Immediately I felt as though I had put my hands into a nest of
stinging hornets . No wonder Pete was spooky and could barely tolerate a rider!
could barely tolerate to be in his own body!
The trainer agreed to try three
energy healing sessions. Pete
improved after the very first one. He was calmer under saddle and
better able to listen to the rider. He was also more grounded.
The trainer and I reviewed his training methods to brainstorm
ways to improve Pete’s comfort even more and to help him stay grounded
After two more healing sessions,
Pete had made dramatic progress. The
“bee sting” energy was gone. Now
Pete was settled more comfortably into his physical body. He
was able to pay attention to the rider’s cues and to what he was doing
while being ridden.
patience and understanding, and with a major shift in his energy, Pete
was headed for a better life.

from Idiopathic Chylothorax
Simba's fight for survival
took place in 2001.
Today, 2010, Simba is
healthy and going strong.
My niece's divorce brought
Simba, a Rag Doll cat, to our home. I invited Nedda to come
to the house to help Simba integrate with our two other cats, Chandler and Tash,
but when she met Simba, Nedda was immediately concerned about his appearance
and especially his breathing. Every breath Simba
took was labored. Nedda urged me to
take him to the vet right away and to keep the other cats out of the
Simba had fluid around his
lungs, diagnosed as idiopathic chylothorax.
My veterinarian wasn't very optimistic. There was so much fluid that the doctor didn't
remove all of it on the first visit. Simba would have to come back again
and again to have the fluid removed if he was to survive. I brought Simba home determined to help him get well.
some flower essences to help Simba with the depression he felt, largely
related to his attachment to my niece. She had raised him
from a kitten and he was both sad to leave her and upset by the personal
upheaval she was going through.
For a few weeks,
Simba seemed stable, but did not improve much. He didn't like the
more nutritious diet Nedda suggested I feed him and wasn't eating very
well. He was used to junky cat food from the supermarket.
All I could get him to eat was freshly cooked turkey.
fluid helped for a day or two, but he had to go once every week to have
it done. During this time, he was seen by 3
different veterinarians at the same practice, and each one said there
was no hope. I knew in my heart that they were
wrong. I just had to find the answer.
day, Nedda suggested a series of healing sessions. She explained
that energetic healing is cumulative in effect, and for such a serious
condition a series of 3 consecutive sessions over 3 consecutive days
might start to turn things around. I agreed to try it.
I saw immediate
improvements in Simba after the very first session. He
began eating better and had a little more energy.
Nedda urged him to use his energy
for healing and not become too active just yet. She also enlisted
the help of the other cats, especially Chandler who began sitting outside the
door of Simba's room yowling. I thought he might be threatening
Simba, but Chandler told Nedda that he was singing songs of
encouragement. When the cats met nose-to-nose through a screen,
there was never a hiss or a growl. Meanwhile, I gave Simba
homeopathics, dietary supplements, and special food, and used prayer and
color therapy to help him heal.
Simba kept slowly improving.
He gained weight. His bedraggled coat shed out and became soft and
beautiful. He began to play with the other cats and asked to go
outside from time to time.
But he still needed to have fluid
removed once a week.
day, Simba took a turn for the worse. I called Nedda, who did
another healing. This time, the change was dramatic. When I
took him for his weekly visit to the vet, one whole side of his lungs
were clear of fluids.
had turned a corner and went for two whole weeks without needing any fluids removed.
During that time, he played with the other cats, spent more time outside, and
his appetite increased dramatically. Simba was so much better!
his next visit, the vet took out half as much fluid as before. Yet when we got home, Simba refused to eat or play, and moped
around the house. I called Nedda the next day because I
couldn't figure out what was wrong.
When Nedda talked
telepathically to Simba,
he told her he was depressed. He believed he was not getting better. After
two weeks of
not going to the doctor, he thought he was all done.
Then, because he had to go back, he decided he must not be healing. He was
depressed because of this misunderstanding.
Nedda cleared up the
confusion for him. She said it
simply wasn't true that he wasn't getting better. She explained that
getting well can take time. She reminded him that
two whole weeks had gone by between fluid removal treatments. She told him
how much everyone loved him and wanted him to heal.
and Nedda finished talking, I was amazement to see him walk over to the food dish and
eat enthusiastically for the first time in 24 hours.
When he was through, he began playing with a toy that was lying on the floor.
Nedda had talked him through an important emotional shift. He was
back on the road to recovery, and
just a few more weeks, Simba had entirely recovered.
of a Distance Intuitive Healing Session
After a healing session, your
animal companion may experience many improvements in their physical, emotional,
and mental state. The specific improvements will vary, depending
on the individual and what their body needs to do to heal itself.
In general, these benefits may be
- FASTER and MORE
COMPLETE healing from illness, injuries, and surgery.
- REDUCED pain or no pain at all.
- INCREASED relaxation in
mind, body, and spirit.
- FEELING more energized.
- BEING more balanced and grounded
- INCREASED immune system function

Intuitive Healing is an
exchange of life force energy, Divine Love, and other higher
vibrational frequencies that support the physical, emotional,
mental, and spiritual well-being of an individual, regardless of the
When our animal friends feel
physical or emotional pain, symptoms
of disease, or require surgery, we want them to feel better as quickly
as possible. We want the pain and
other unpleasant symptoms to go away.
In western society, we have
been taught to expect a "quick fix". We want to "pop a magic pill"
into the mouths of our animals and give them instant relief. This
approach by itself can sometimes mask symptoms and/or create side
effects that may interfere with the body's own natural healing process.
Many times a combination approach to healing provides the best results.
Energy healing can bring a
relief of symptoms, elimination of unfriendly micro-organisms, and
accelerated mending of broken bones. When someone's healing
process has been slow to complete, energy healing can repair the
body's blueprint or template and facilitate the completion of the

may combine elements from Hands-on-Healing,
Multi-Dimensional Healing, cranial/sacral therapy, Tellington TTouch, and other
alternative healing modalities. Working with Nedda in every session are healing masters and
angelic beings from the higher dimensions of Light and Love. Nedda
facilitates the process for your animal friend.

in on how the animal is handling the energy and what issues may be
coming up during the healing - Nedda can facilitate a more complete
Before, During, and After a
BEFORE scheduling a healing session for your animal:
Nedda requires a communication session in which you and your
animal both participate. This is to gather information from you
and your animal about what is going on - what you observe, what a
veterinarian diagnosis might be, what other treatments have been and are
being used, and how your animal is feeling. In addition, the
animal must be willing to receive the healing, and that can be
determined at this time.
The healing session is usually scheduled
for a time after the phone session is completed. This allows Nedda
to totally focus on the process of facilitating the healing work.
It is recommended that the animal be resting, or at least not involved
in any activity which requires a large expenditure of energy. The
session is scheduled for a time when the animal is likely to be quiet.
The body already knows how to heal itself. By creating sacred
space and tuning into the Divine Energies of Creation, the healer
becomes a channel for "Love without conditions."
This energy is sometimes called life force, chi, ki or prana.
Today, there are many higher vibrations of Light and Love
available for healing purposes.
DURING the healing
session, the body is
- Release stagnant energies, clearing
- Release emotional patterns that have
been locked into the cells
- Seal energy leaks
- Rebalance and restore natural energy
- Absorb nourishing life force energy
- Restore healthy vibrational rhythms
- Restore damaged tissue to its original
- Repair the template or blueprint for
the physical body
AFTER the healing session,
your animal may:
Feel more energized.
Please encourage your animal companion to rest and be quiet for 24 to
36 hours. This allows the energy to be used for healing.
Feel very tired.
If you find your animal is sleeping more than normal, do not be
concerned. If you are concerned about anything that is
happening or not happening, please telephone Nedda.
Some animals may feel
exhausted and want to rest or even sleep; others feel very energized and
bouncy. Nevertheless, please encourage them to REST.
For horses, show dogs, and other "working" animals, please give

Horses should not be ridden or involved in
anything more exciting than turn out (or stall rest when that is
appropriate for their injury/illness).
Well, who can tell a cat what to
do? Still, rest is to be encouraged and confining your
cat to one small room with a "cave" can be helpful. (A
"cave" is a cardboard box with the opening on the side.

drape a towel over the opening, leaving only about 1" of
space between the towel on the floor. The cat will

Encourage your animal rest and to drink water
to help the body detoxify after a session.
A FOLLOW-UP APPOINTMENT
is recommended to evaluate
the healing session. During a brief phone call, you are encouraged
to report your observations. Sometimes the animal's input is also
requested. This information helps Nedda and you decide whether
and/or how soon an additional healing session would be advisable.

Preparation for Surgery
Preparation for surgery is a very
specific type of intuitive healing session. Whether an animal
is being neutered or spayed, has been injured in an accident, or is having
any other type of surgery, appropriate preparation for the surgery
creates many benefits.
A feeling of comfort and
calm that will put your animal in the best possible frame of
mind to experience the surgery.
A feeling of optimism.
The animal's physical body
is prepared to receive the surgery and therefore can adjust to
whatever changes are required.
A preparation for the surgery includes:
- Set up the
with the angels and nature spirits to clear the surgical
preparation room, the surgery itself, and the room where
recovery from surgery will take place.
This process eliminates energies
that are discordant and no longer appropriate for the Earth
realm and sets up a healing energy for the space. When the clearing is complete,
the space is filled with
Divine Light and Divine Love and set with intentions to create
safety and optimal healing.
Presence” of everyone on the surgical team to allow them to
release anything that is no longer appropriate for them and to
set intentions so that they will be in their best mental,
emotional, and physical states to perform a perfect surgery.
