Yesterday, I had an experience that was both frightening and enlightening. It was 6:30am and we heard something rustling in the overgrowth around our house. Thinking it was a chicken or perhaps the dozens of cats that live in the jungle behind us, we ignored it. Then, while my husband was taking an outdoor shower, he called to me. There on the otherside of our lanai, blocked from entering, was a dog – a pitbull.
Now, normally I am frightened of dogs, but I could tell this dog was friendly. His tail was wagging. He was also lost and looking for something. Our first thought was that he came from nextdoor because we hear that dog bark all the time. I took it upon myself to check.
To make a long story short, I found out he came from down the street and his name was Zeus. After calling the owners who weren’t home, I took it upon myself to lead him home. However, I was stopped cold by a man walking his dog. Upon seeing Zeus, the man froze and started screaming “NOOOO!”
Zeus must have taken this as a signal to attack, because he ran the fifty feet between us and lunged at the other dog. What ensued was sheer terror. I did not know what to do. The man was trying to hold his dog up in the air by his leash. The man fell. I was screaming, “Zeus! Zeus! come here!”
I wasn’t going to get into the middle of dog fight. Zeus was not attacking the man only the other dog. All I could think of doing was Spiritual Mind Treatment. I don’t remember what I said, but I’d barely spoke a few words, when suddenly this large Hawaiian woman appeared out of nowhere, grabbed Zeus by the color and walked him toward me. I frantically pointed toward Zues’s house, making sure she knew he wasn’t my dog. We both guided Zeus home and locked the gate.
The man was fine but very upset, screaming at the house and Zeus. I don’t know what happened after that, but I do know how I felt. My first first thought was did I do enough? Could I have done more? Should I have gone after Zeus myself? Was I a coward? Then a calmness came over me. I realized that I did just the right thing. I acted from where I was. I didn’t have the consciousness of that Hawaiian woman, ready to walk straight into the fro or I would have. I did what I could do in that moment and it was to pray. The Universe answered me instantaneously from right where I was through that woman.
Spiritual Mind Treatment works. It is instantaneous. When we place a demand upon the Law of our being, It responds. I didn’t know it was going to show up in the form of a fearless Hawaiian woman. I had no idea. I only demanded resolution and safety now.
I am grateful! However, I have decided if Zeus ever decides to come our way again, I’ll just leave him to his owners. I’m not a dog whisperer. Not now at least. I forgive myself.
