helping patches breathe
Nedda Wittels and Barbara Czarzasty
When you love an animal
you don't want them to suffer.
When Barbara called me in
August, 2004, her 13 year old Springer named Patches had been suffering from
laryngeal paralysis for four
One side of her vocal cords were
paralyzed, causing shortness of breath accompanied by a loud, rasping
than this, Patches was a healthy dog. Despite her age, she
was active and bright-eyed, full of love and play.
had some difficulty breathing nearly all the time, but her symptoms were
much worse in hot, humid weather. When she was feeling
relatively good on a summer day, she would ask to go sit in the pool to
cool off. When she felt bad, Barbara and her husband, Kevin, kept
Patches indoors in the air conditioning. Even inside, she
would struggle to breathe.
hot, humid weather, each breath was hard work, the sparkle would
disappear from Patches' eyes, and she would even mess herself.
Steroid injections would help for awhile.
and Kevin didn't want Patches to suffer and were thinking about
euthanizing her soon. Barbara was very torn when she called
I have a very hard decision to make. Patches is my best friend
and she's been through a lot of good times and bad with us. The
last thing I want to do is have her suffer because I can't let go, but
I'm not sure she's ready to go.
breathing was so loud I could hear her over the phone as Barbara and I
talked. After Barbara gave me the medical history, I asked Patches
if she was ready to leave.
spoke with Patches and me for quite awhile. As the conversation
progressed, I noticed Patches' breathing was becoming less and less
labored and she was starting to relax.
wasn't at all ready to give up her life. She loved her family, who
are involved in both breeding and rescuing Springer Spaniels, and she
wanted to continue contributing to all family
activities Also, Patches just wanted to be with
those she loved so much. She wasn't at all interested in
weather report for the coming weekend was more heat and humidity, which
Barbara feared would be too much for Patches. I suggested that we
try one healing session immediately and wait until the following Monday
for Barbara give me an update.
healing guides were indicating that the energy around Patches' vocal
chords was very congested and that the etheric template (the blueprint
for the body's physical design) had been damaged.
The healing was done from a distance. During the session, the
guides cleansed and repaired not only the etheric template, but Patches'
Throat Chakra. They also worked on the nerves that connect to the
larynx. They we balanced and filled up her whole body with
Spiritual Light, and Love Without Conditions.
the healing, Barbara wrote,
can honestly say that this was the first time in months Patches was able
to sleep through the night peacefully. The next morning, she was
able to go downstairs on her own, where she picked up her favorite toy
to take outside with her to do her business. That horrible raspy
sound was gone and the sparkle was back in her eyes.
with Barbara again after the heat and humidity of the weekend had passed
over our location. Her report was very good, but the guides wanted
one follow-up session to eliminate any residual energy that might need
to be removed. The body releases in layers, and they wanted to be
sure that everything that needed to go would be gone.
over 2 weeks since our first conversation with Nedda, and Patches is
doing great! She is back to her normal self and enjoying life
without having to struggle to breathe. She's even realized she
can counter surf again to find some tasty snacks. Thank you for
sharing your gift of communication and healing with us.
any healing, it is up to the individual body what it will do with the
energy. Success is never guaranteed. Still, it is always
wonderful to hear when an animal recovers from a long-term chronic
