This works for me: I imagine myself as a young child (around six years old). I take her into my lap and talk to her and rock her and give her all the love and nurturing she needs. I have found that when I am especially hard on myself (guilt, embarassment, etc.) it’s my little girl telling me she is feeling alone and unloved. I used to look outside myself for that love and nurturing, but until I could give it to her, it didn’t work. If you have a hard time thinking of yourself as a young child, try imagining a little puppy or kitten. How would you treat them if they came to you hurt and asking for help? Being gentle with myself for things I did in the past works a whole lot better than being critical. I hope this helsp.
My heart is with you. I have lost (from natural causes and putting to sleep) many, many of my animals over the years. Animals that are not mine come to my house to die with dignity because they know they will be loved as they pass. It is never easy saying goodbye to a beloved pet. In reading your post I can feel how much you love Pinky T. He knows it, too. I believe our animals choose us. Some stay for a long time, others a very short time. I think he chose to be with you during your time of growth. What a gift he gave to you! When you have your ceremony (or if you get this message afterward), talk to him about how much he meant to you. Thank him for all he gave you and for choosing to be with you. I believe they hear and feel everything we say to them. His energy will be with you afterwards, so pay attention to little signs. When you remember him, he is right there with you saying “Hello.”
