Bali, a lab Shepard mix, owned by one of the sweetest people I've had the pleasure to meet asked me to talk to Bali to find out why she was being so aggressive to their small dog and the other animals that lived there. She loves this dog and gives her a lot of attention. So my first impression was jealousy but I know to not let my opinions get in the way so I cleared all of my feelings and grounded myself before I did the reading. (This is exactly how the reading went. The "you" refers to Bali's mom).
Bali came into my white room very casually. She gave me a look of curiosity, pleasant but more like "I'm here, now what?" (this was the impression I received -not actual words from her). I also received the impression she really didn't need anyone or particularly liked very many people. She had a little bit of an attitude of someone that is full of themselves. At one point she looked right at me with those deep brown eyes and it made me feel really intimidated. I told her that I felt intimidated by that and was that her intent to make me feel that way. She said, "no, I just want you to know who you're dealing with." I told her that feeling intimidated by her didn't feel good and do you do that with everyone? She said, "I want to be respected." I told her that respect had to be earned and that intimidating others was not the way to get their respect. She didn't seem to listen or care. She doesn't think there is anything wrong with her attitude.
The more I got to know her I realized she is very spoiled and feels entitled because she is YOUR dog (the sweet ladies dog). This makes her feel more special than the other animals and she does not like to share you or her stuff. She's a little stubborn and not willing to change. She's strong-willed and doesn't tolerate much. She's a bully and to her, that gets her respect. She doesn't see it as a bad thing. It makes her feel powerful.
She feels that her job is to protect you (again the sweet lady) from everything and everyone. She says you are scared all the time and feels that and she wants to protect you. She does love you and she knows you love her and she knows you feel like she's special too. She said, "I see her fear all the time-I must protect her."
I decided to release some trapped emotions from her to see what came up. Here is the list; Pride, Panic, Hatred, Unworthy, Rejection, Discouragement, and Frustration. (to learn more on how the emotion code can work for you go to the Emotion Code button below.)
As I was releasing the emotions I heard her ask, "Why so many animals? Why aren't I enough? Don't like to share."
She hates the little dog A LOT! I asked why, She said, "He's noisy, yappy, I want to bite him." I asked, "Really? Bali- "Yes-tell him to shut up." The little dog keeps her on edge, driving her crazy. She feels she gets no peace with him around. FYI
When I started to report this to the owner I felt a pain of anxiety wondering if I should report what I had found out or not. She definitely has her hands full with Bali and not sure if the aggression was ever going to stop because she had gotten away with it for so long. Bali felt like everything was the way it should be, she's the boss. But I reported it anyway and found out that this sweet lady did take offense to it but her kids (whom she lives with) let me know I was spot on. I just hope they were able to find a way to resolve the aggressiveness.
Sometimes, our animals will tell on us whether we like it or not. But what I have found is that if we just listen to what they have to say that we can learn so much about ourselves and others. I really do learn a lot from them.
