Listening for Wellness
Repost of Episode 71 from Season 1. Vibrational wellness is vibration at the frequency that renews and transforms us so we can be well. This time, on my podcast Episode #71(no longer on the podcast, available only here), I continued on the topic of vibrational wellness. Are we listening in on wellness or illness? Yes, LISTENING! Reference the prequel episode Sound of Wellness.  “It has been said that you cannot hurt the humblest creature or disturb the smallest pebble without your action having a reaction upon something else’s. You cannot think an evil thought, no matter how privately, without it having an effect upon somebody else. Whatsoever you do in life sets up some form of resonance.” ~by Cornelis van Dalen, New Physis Nature & Medicine "Finally brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy - meditate on these things." ~Philippians 4: 8, NKJV "For the thing I greatly feared has come upon me, And what I dreaded has happened to me." ~Job 3:25, NKJV "For as he thinks in his heart, so is he." ~Proverbs 23: 7, NKJV VIDEO Dan Mohler on The Book of Job, Satan, Sickness https://www.youtube.com/embed/5JoyGAG1Qhs BOOKS Be Healed: Secrets to Divine Healing in the Model of Jesus by Connie Hunter-Urbin The Art of Listening Prayer: Hearing God's Voice Amidst Life's Noise by Seth Barnes ARTICLES Miracles in Medicine Explained by Sound Science https://medicalveritas.org/miracles-in-medicine-explained-by-sound-science/ Here is a great and simple little test to learn more about your own color energy or frequency: What Color is Your Energy? - http://www.sun-gazing.com/color-energy-test-will-reveal-answer/ Could Music Beat Drugs for Anxiety and Mood? http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/could-music-beat-drugs-anxiety-and-mood Essential Oils - https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/shop/aromatherapy-for-dogs/to-order-or-join-young-living-essential-oils/

Free Wellness, Naturally!
This is a bonus add-back-in from 2019 that I'd removed to use elsewhere. It is episode 61 from Season 1.  "The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That's the day we truly grow up". ~John C. Maxwell In this audio I share various ways we can improve our health through our attitude choices, and things as simple as a hug, a smile, laughter, dancing, singing and more! Couple that with essential oils and WOW!   These are so simple some are going to think this is insane...but remember it is nature's way. Simplicity, not complicity. Not complicated. Simple. And for the science buffs, these are all proven scientifically. I have found that essential oils play a critical role in supporting us in releasing the trapped emotions within our bodies allowing for vibrational wellness to return. That is because essential oils get to the root of of removing locked emotions. Emotions dictate to us what we can or can't accomplish as I have learned through Dr. Allen's teachings. As I use the essential oils to support my emotional release, I do so prayerfully and with focused intention. I am amazed at all that has been able to transpire in my own life as a result. Lots of baggage being released; besides I prefer to travel light. VIDEO: How Does Emotion Change Our Bodies? QUOTES Your smile will give you a positive countenance that will make people feel comfortable around you. ~Les Brown The person who can bring the spirit of laughter into a room is indeed blessed. ~Bennett Cerf Being able to give someone a hug from the heart, it's healing. It's healing for yourself and healing for others, and we need a lot of that. ~Big Show Music is the greatest communication in the world. Even if people don't understand the language that you're singing in, they still know good music when they hear it. ~Lou Rawls Periodic fasting can help clear up the mind and strengthen the body and the spirit. ~Ezra Taft Benson We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls. ~Mother Teresa SOME REFERENCES - more will be in blog post: https://www.organicfacts.net/health-benefits/other/health-benefits-of-laughter.html https://www.missionariesofprayer.org/2021/01/getting-your-joy-back/ https://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-5756/10-Reasons-Why-We-Need-at-Least-8-Hugs-a-Day.html https://draxe.com/benefits-fasting/ https://takelessons.com/live/singing/health-benefits-of-singing https://www.everydayhealth.com/fitness-pictures/health-benefits-of-dance.aspx

Silver and Gold
This is episode 173. You either have heard the song or have seen the animated movie, or maybe not lol. However, this episode is about much more than the Christmas movie song of the same title. While this message is short, I hope it packs a little punch for you to prepare for what is coming in 2022. Be blessed!

Light BE!
This is Episode 172. What about the light? For one thing it's one of the eight laws of health - getting into that sunshine. For another thing there is so much more to light. I think I spend more time showing what happens when it is ignored and the laws of health than I do on the benefits of light. For an in-depth, scientific assessment of light from a Christian faith-based viewpoint by Dr. Doug Corrigan, check out his book, The Author of Light  QUOTE Nature doctor Louis Kuhne said, “In fact, I consider the whole scheme of poisoning patients by medicine, lately so decidedly on the increase, as one, if not the chief cause that thoroughly healthy persons are now hardly to be found, and that chronic diseases are multiplying with fearful rapidity.” (1835-1901). ARTICLES Let There Be Light - https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2018/01/let-there-be-light/ Sunlight - Alternative Medicine - https://www.naturalnews.com/046239_sunlight_alternative_medicine_cancer.html The White Light White light focused through a prism can create a laser beam that can cut through steel."Dr. Joseph Peck(MD) shared this in his class, Uncommon Journaling for Divine Destiny . You see, God is Love, He is Light, and He is Life. Light is SOUND at a much higher frequency. Matter is sound at a much lower frequency. When we vibrate in tune with God's frequency, then we are in that laser focused White Light releasing His resurrection power in this world!

Sound of Wellness
This is one of the episodes I promised I'd be adding back in. This was recorded in May of 2019 with my good friend, retired veterinarian, Dr. Hugh Bassham. In this episode we talked Cymatics - more commonly known now about quantum physics, vibrational wellness, and more. We shared so many resources in this discussion that you can find below. This show was far more on the emotional and spiritual plane than the physical...but was it? It definitely ALL ties together as we go into more on vibrational wellness for us and our dogs! QUOTES "And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden." ~Genesis 3:8, NKJV “The sound of colors is so definite that it would be hard to find anyone who would express bright yellow with base notes, or dark lake with the treble." ~Wassily Kandinsky Read more at: https://www.brainyquote.com/topics/sound “In string theory, all particles are vibrations on a tiny rubber band; physics is the harmonies on the string;  chemistry is the melodies we play on vibrating strings; the universe is a symphony of strings, and the ‘Mind of God’ is cosmic music resonating in 11-dimensional hyperspace.”~Michio Kaku "To console those who mourn in Zion, To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called the trees of righteousness, The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified." ~Isaiah 61:3, NKJV "The Lord your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing." ~Zephaniah 3:17, NKJV "The medicine of the future will be music and sound." ~Edgar Cayce "You write the laws of your country and I'll write the music, and with the music I will control your country." Secret of the Ages by Robert Collier 1 Samuel 16:23 "...David would take a harp and play it with his hand. Then Saul would become refreshed and well, and the distressing spirit would depart from him."

Sound of ROAR!
Episode 171. Yes, you read that right. Today I share a message on what God has been speaking to me in His whisper but it is about His roar - through us. We are taking the vibrational frequencies messages up higher - MUCH higher. What I love is that God's wisdom is SO much higher than ours so often what He tells us to do here in the natural world may not make sense to us, but it sure does bring about dramatic results. I LOVE it, and I hope you embrace it too!  SCRIPTURES "Wherever you hear the sound of the trumpet, rally to use there. Our God will fight for us." ~Nehemiah 4:20, NKJV Read: 1 Chronicles 14, Judges 6-7, Joshua 6 SONGS 1. Glory by Jervis Campbell  2.

Essential Oils for Calming
Bonus episode 4. Calming for dogs and their people. Especially now during this time of year when people seem to get more stressed out rather than more cheerful. It's "JOY to the world" folks. It's "have yourself a MERRY little Christmas". It's "silent night, HOLY night, ALL is CALM." So let's do that!! Hopefully this message will help you to do exactly that. When we're calm, our dogs will be calm too.  To learn more: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/shop/aromatherapy-for-dogs/

Frequencies Matter
This is episode 170. And of course frequencies matter, it is what we've been talking about since the re-launch of this podcast! We talk about frequencies ARE matter not just THAT they matter! As always, this is all so that you can live and BE well...and your dogs too of course.  QUOTES “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, vibration.” ~Nikola Tesla "Clinical research shows that essential oils have the highest frequency of any natural substance known to man, creating an environment in which disease, bacteria, virus, fungus, etc., cannot live. I believe that the chemistry and frequencies of essential oils have the ability to help man maintain the optimal frequency to the extent that disease cannot exist." ~D. Gary Young "The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty. The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars, Yes the Lord splinters the cedars of Lebanon." ~Psalms 29: 4-5, NKJV Everything in life is vibration. ~Albert Einstein ARTICLES The Hippies Were Right - It's ALL About Vibrations Man! https://wakeup-world.com/2011/07/12/scientist-prove-dna-can-be-reprogrammed-by-words-frequencies/ Quantum Physics, Essential Oils & the Mind-Body Connection BOOKS Book by Dr. Doug Corrigan, How Do Essential Oils Work? and his class Protecting Your DNA Book by me and my two colleagues, Essential Oils in Animal Care: A naturopathic approach

Animals, Healing and Faith
Here is bonus episode #3 for you. This time, I share yet another blast from my podcasting past but this time there is a very definite spiritual reason that I don't even mention until the very end of the episode! This is from my former long running podcast, Animal Talk Naturally, that I shared with my colleague and co-host. This episode features my long-time friend once again, Dr. Hugh Bassham, who has since retired (recorded in March 2012). What a fantastic wealth of wisdom he learned and now shares whenever he has the opportunity. I'm very grateful to him and our friendship. It was good to hear my former co-host, Dr. Jeannie share her own stories on this podcast too since she was often very quiet (by her own choice) on the podcast. BOOKS Better Health and a Plan to Achieve It by veterinarian Dr. Hugh Bassham Animals Taught Me That by me.

Body Voltage
On this episode I share about how we are electric beings. This is episode 169. Also go back and check out episode #153 here on this podcast if you haven't yet, Diagnoses Don't Define Our Pets (for the record they don't define us either!) On that episode the laws of health, how we THINK about things, essential oils, faith, dogs and frequencies are ALL discussed on that episode which goes well with this one. Did you know that body voltage determines our health or lack thereof? If not, you're about to find out how and yes it always has to do with how well we take care of ourselves. The same holds true for our animals.  ARTICLES  Body Voltage Dictates Health and Disease https://www.organicconsumers.org/news/how-body-voltage-dictates-health-and-disease https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3265077/ https://www.preventdisease.com/news/14/070214_Healing-Is-Voltage.shtml https://www.massagemag.com/healing-the-body-through-voltage-8748/ BOOKS 1.

Butterfly Adversity
Released originally 10 years ago, the truths in this message still hold true today. I hope you enjoy this accompanying bonus episode to episode 168.  “A season of loneliness and isolation is when the caterpillar gets its wings. Remember that next time you feel alone.” – Mandy Hale “Butterflies can’t see their wings. They can’t see how truly beautiful they are, but everyone else can. People are like that as well.” – Naya Rivera

DIG Into the Foundation of Health
This week we'll go into the laws of health which are actually loaded with vibrational frequencies as you'll discover through upcoming episodes. You can find more about the laws of health under the category on my website of the same name: Laws of Health Category This is episode 168.  8 Laws of Health *Nutrition is the foundation of health – according to species needs, not appetite, not convenience but what is needed to thrive. *Fresh air daily – get outside and breath the air. NOT indoor air, outside air unless that is too toxic and then diffuse essential oils. *Pure water daily – not chlorinated, fluoridated tap water but pure, clean fresh water.  *Exercise - it is NOT optional. God made us all to be ACTIVE and MOVE - animals /pets included. *Proper rest – without all the electronic devices invading our rest, turn them off. *Sunshine – without the toxic sunscreens we’re told to use…that is another reason we’re also so Vitamin D depleted. But in moderation - bathing not baking. Watch the animals as they know how get their sunshine! Job 12:7-10 *Moderation - all things are to be done in moderation, or tempered. I think of this as pruning as God "tempers" my steps. *Proper attitude which means to TRUST in the previous seven laws to work (especially during the detoxification process) and trust in God.

Nature's Symphony
This is bonus episode 1, from my former podcast which increased my interest in the topic of frequencies & vibrations. I hope this ignites your own interest to go deeper into this topic as well! Of course I'll be sharing much more on nature's symphony in upcoming episodes.  QUOTES “…He [God] has created medicines whose molecules sing sonorous songs of healing to our very cells resounding with His grace – if only we will attune ourselves to receive it.” ~Dr. David Stewart, Chemistry of Essential Oils Made Simple “It has been said that you cannot hurt the humblest creature or disturb the smallest pebble without your action having a reaction upon something else’s. You cannot think an evil thought, no matter how privately, without it having an effect upon somebody else.

Full Circle
Hello everyone, I took a VERY long hiatus from the podcast as I wasn't sure I'd continue. So much was happening this summer as you all know. I'm back, a little differently. This episode will enlighten you to the direction. Upcoming episodes which I mention plus past ones I'd removed to use in courses (which I am no longer offering), will be added back. The flavor of this podcast will become evident. I hope you'll stay TUNED in to stay TUNED up! While this is episode 165 the number of episodes here doesn't reflect that. Episodes WILL be added back regularly. I've missed you, and above all else my heart is for you AND your dog(s) to BE well.

Better Health
This week on Episode 162, Donnie wasn't with me but instead my good friend, veterinarian Dr. Hugh Bassham joined me once again! It was a pleasure to have him share his personal message of better health. He has a book of the same name titled, "Better Health and A Plan to Achieve It" that is absolutely perfect for such a time as this.    1. We talked about what total and better health is and what that entails 2. Our personal views and how what we're being told is good for our health via media (and government) is NOT! 3. And the simple solutions Books mentioned (including Dr. Bassham's of course since this was the focus and topic of today's podcast): 1. Better Health and a Plan to Achieve It by Dr. Hugh Bassham 2. The Supernatural Power of Music by Len Mink 3. Redeeming Your Timeline by Troy Brewer   Donnie will be back with me - he's not going to be quite as regular, but OFTEN which makes me happy. We have a funny episode we want to do next which features both King and Ezra. We decided to not do a specific show on Ezra since I've already done several and we are still in major learning mode with this dog!

We talked about how she came to live with us 2. Her relationship with King 3. Her amazing-ness. It's hard to think of her as anything but amazing   Blog Post written in 2013 about her coming to us and how we lost King and her the same day and got them both back the same day! https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2013/06/lost-but-now-found/  Previous episodes that elaborate on Schatzie's story https://doggonetruth.podbean.com/e/48-lost-but-now-found/ https://doggonetruth.podbean.com/e/49-farewell-to-schatzie-the-carolina-dog/ https://doggonetruth.podbean.com/e/51-in-the-heart/   Next week we'll focus on Ezra - oh let us count the ways this dog has changed just about everything in our lives.

Our Buddy Dude
This week on Episode 160, we talk about special American Bully boy, King. He is our big "little man" Buddy Dude. The pic is him wearing his superman cape that I mention in the show.    1. We talked about how he came to live with us 2. His role in our family 3. And Donnie has a special thing he relays about King - something I didn't even know until he shared it on this podcast! Blog Post written in 2013 about King - which means it's probably more accurate than what we shared today lol as memory fades with age: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2013/02/meet-king/    Next week we'll focus on our girl, the only girl we've had since we've been married, Schatzie. She was the most amazing dog and together with King they made the most beautiful duet!    As per normal UGH AGAIN LOL this is getting ridiculous,  I forgot to ask listeners to subscribe to the podcast on your favorite podcast app, thank you!

You Ain't Gotta Eat It!
This week on Episode 159, we talk about FOOD. As in DOG food. As in REAL dog food. As in CARNIVORE food.  To break it down a bit: 1. We talked about how we got started with Shadrach 2. How we source our food 3. How we counter the naysayers - or at least a couple of them 4. We especially worked to make it simple, but also I did offer and mention my own resource for you, Real Nutrition for Our Dogs.    BLOG POST with this episode written by King, our American Bully: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2021/04/here-we-go-again/    Next week we'll focus on our special dog, Donnie's best buddy (well besides God and me hehe), our American Bully, King.   As per normal UGH AGAIN,  I forgot to ask listeners to subscribe to the podcast on your favorite podcast app, thank you!

Through the Fire
This week on Episode 158, we talk about another of our former amazing dog's, Meshach. This journey of ours with his was not only very difficult because of what he went through, but also because it was not just a physical problem but a spiritual one. So we open this podcast with prayer.  This week we talked about: 1. How Meshach came to us - that in and of itself was a miracle (they always are).  2. Meshach's ambassadorship 3. The spiritual journey he took us on, in particular me, Dr. Kim, that I never knew I needed to know, but then that's what ALL our dogs do for both of us! Meshach's Team Page: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/team-member/meshach-the-great-dane/  My book mentioned, available here as episodes with commentary, or as a free audio book at this link: https://mysoundwise.com/soundcasts/1609880335028s    QUOTES “By vaccinating every individual animal and not allowing it to develop its own immunity, we are effectively preventing the passing of the immunity to the future generations. A vaccine is always made from the most virulent form of the virus since pharmaceutical companies jump on the wagon as soon as the disease appears and the level of fear is at its highest. While in nature this virus would have mutated into a less virulent form, it does not do so in the vaccine. Generations of animals are therefore injected with the worst form of the virus and stripped of their natural immune response which would have been passed onto subsequent generations. What is passed forward instead is deformed DNA, and the destruction of the species must ensue. Vaccinated mothers do not pass on herd immunity, which then puts pups in greater danger of contracting disease while they are very young. By attempting to save the individual animal, we are effectively destroying the species. A healthy species is able to survive without human interference and we are taking that ability away from our animals." ~Aleksandra Mikic, DMH, DVH, DPh   "Mercury and aluminum are PROTEIN MUTATORS in their own right and DNA is PROTEIN! Related genomes will respond in RELATED FASHION so breeds that have related genomes respond to the assault in the same fashion making it LOOK like a breed or tribe thing but it is in reality a RELATED GENE DAMAGE THING: chronic diarrhea, parasitism, leaky gut, food allergies, IBD, pancreatitis, pancreatic cancer, and anal gland saculitis are all autoimmune issues and this means induced by the vaccines".~Patricia Jordan, DVM   "80% of disease in our dogs occur within 3 months of vaccinating". ~Dr. Chris Day   "Our new grads don't know a heck of a lot more about vaccines than our older grads. And I've figured out why this is. They know a lot more about basic immunology, but they don't know about vaccinology and the two are not the same. Also, they're taught by people generally that know nothing about vaccinology. Now, when do they get their vaccine training? During their fourth year. And who's giving that? The veterinarians that know how to give vaccines, that still don't know about vaccinology. So we haven't gone very far from where we were ten years ago or twenty years ago with regard to training veterinarians about vaccines." ~Ronald Schultz, PhD, leading veterinary vaccine researcher during a 2009 Pet Vaccine Seminar   Resources for this episode: https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/rabies-miasm-in-dogs/ I HIGHLY recommend these books: IMMUNE DOGGY & HOW TO IMMUNIZE YOUR DOG WITHOUT VACCINES by Aleksandra Mikic, DMH, DVH, DPH VACC

The Shad, Part 2
This week on Episode 157, we talk about our former amazing dog, Shadrach aka Shad. He is the primary reason I began my journey into natural health in earnest. This is a continuation of last week's episode. Here is the link to Part 1 https://doggonetruth.podbean.com/e/the-shad-part-1/   This week we talked about: 1. How Donnie figured out the true illness that Shadrach was suffering from and how that escalated into the work I now do. 2. How we switched Shadrach to a raw diet and natural lifestyle. 3. His fall down an arroyo that led us even deeper into natural health - if we hadn't he wouldn't have lived past his 7th birthday! Which led us deeper into our essential oils journey too!

The Shad, Part 1
This week on Episode 156, we talk about our former amazing dog, Shadrach aka Shad. He is the primary reason I began my journey into natural health in earnest. We left out so much that we have decided to do a Part 2 next week. Here is the link to Part Two https://doggonetruth.podbean.com/e/the-shad-part-2/  A reminder that our podcast is unscripted and I have zero idea what Donnie is going to say ever but he has no idea what I'll say either. This week we talked about: 1. How we got Shadrach during a tragedy in my family. 2. Initial challenges with him that were really about (as it always seems to be) exposing something I need to reckon with in my own life. 3. Shadrach's illness that led me straight into natural health without hesitation 4. How he saved his own life and Donnie's one morning  And a whole lot more!    Shadrach's NEW blog post:  https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2021/03/healing-comes-from-joy/ Next week we'll cover ... 1. How Donnie figured out the true illness that Shadrach was suffering from and how that escalated into the work I now do. 2. How we switched Shadrach to a raw diet and natural lifestyle. 3. His fall down an arroyo that led us even deeper into natural health - if we hadn't he wouldn't have lived past his 7th birthday! Which led us deeper into our essential oils journey too! As I said last week, we'll be sharing each dog that we've had together, and then we'll be going down  rabbit holes as Donnie has a way of saying things in a way I can't or don't!   Lastly, once again, I forgot to ask listeners to subscribe to the podcast on your favorite podcast app, thank you!

The Raw Golden
Okay we are back in earnest this week for Episode 155. I'll be honest and say I felt out of my element as I had grown used to being the only host for the last 2.5 years.  Keep in mind, our podcast is unscripted and I have zero idea what Donnie is going to say lol. I might appear snarky with him at times but trust me, it's just how he and I jest with one another ALL DAY LONG EVERY DAY! Thank you for joining us! I feel we missed a few points which I'll point out here and hope that you READ these: 1. Jesus is always intended to be the center of every episode. Donnie just zeroed in on raw feeding which he is strong in sharing. I am grateful for that though. So we will be working out our "groove" in the coming episodes no doubt! 2. Ezra did whine through a lot of the podcast this time - which he's never done before because usually he's with King and Donnie in another room. We made the mistake of putting King in another room because we didn't want them to get into one of their LOUD wrestling matches or tag lol. So when Donnie was talking I was petting and stroking Ezra, and when I was talking Donnie was, but if we forgot him for a moment he'd whine. He wanted King in the room too so that's how it will be going forward - King Bubba and Priest Ezra TOGETHER.  3. We left out a whole lot of the middle because honestly, some of our story is just not so pretty unless viewed through the lens of the Cross of Jesus Christ - which not everyone will do. So there you have it.   Fridge's Team Page: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/team-member/fridge-the-golden-retriever/  Fridge's Story: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2015/10/a-tale-of-three-dogs-part-one/  Fridge was such an awesome dog and we felt it was time for him to be included in the list of our amazing Teacher Dogs - of which they ALL have been and continue to be. In fact, they will ALL (current dogs and angel dogs) be doing the blogging for me on my blog! Shadrach impacted so many that often when I share his photos on FB, I get so many saying how much HE helped them - yes him not me. So I aim to allow them free rein!  Lastly I forgot to ask listeners to subscribe on your favorite podcast app, thank you!

YAY, I...um WE are back! Yep, I've got a new co-host and after this short introduction episode, we'll be in back in full production. The solution I was needing, wanting and praying about was right in front of me the whole time. I announced this on FB last week and the response was SO positive. LOL it made me laugh in a way and humbled me in another (always needed) because this new co-host is what has gotten people to say, YES I'll listen in!    Buckle your seatbelts, it's going to be a wild ride!   And while you're at it, check out our DOGgone Truth Club in audio of course!Subscribe to The DOGgone Truth Podcast on Soundwise

The Path to the Lighthouse
This week on Episode 154,This topic I’m sharing today has been on my heart a long time but since we are in the darkest age I’ve ever lived through I thought, well it’s a good time to share this law of health of again: SUNLIGHT and SON Light! Quotes: Darkness only thrives as long as the environment is conducive to its existence.

Diagnoses Don't Define Our Pets
This week on Episode 153, is on the labels we put on our pets based on diagnoses received. This is a grave mistake in my opinion. There is a far better way to THINK about our animals no matter what diagnosis they receive. This is in large part the road to recovery.    Resources mentioned: Faith, Dogs, and Oils class  https://www.thepassiontranslation.com/how-callings-trump-labels-every-time/    CLASSES: http://www.doggonetruth.club  DOG WELLNESS BUNDLE: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/doggone-wellness  WEBSITE: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com Subscribe to The DOGgone Truth Podcast on Soundwise

Walking in Truth
On episode 152, way back from 2009, a wise friend who passed away in January of 2011 shared this podcast with me on my former podcast. His name was Dr. Johan Joubert, a veterinarian in South Africa - not the one who is currently working with the large cats. The name is common there so please don't confuse them. Dr. Joubert was my friend and hearing all he has to say on this podcast is chilling and prophetic as much of what he said has come to pass in 2020.  I don't share his website as it is no longer available and sadly all of his great work is mostly gone as well. You may find some of his articles on veterinarian Dr. Tom Lonsdale's site at http://www.rawmeatybones.com    Dr. Joubert references this in the podcast: https://unitedtruthseekers.com/profiles/blogs/take-back-your-strawman-your-birth-certificate-bond-is-worth-bill?   QUOTE "Conspiracy theorists of the world, believers in the hidden hands of the Rothschilds and the Masons and the Illuminati, we skeptics owe you an apology. You were right. The players may be a little different, but your basic premise is correct: The world is a rigged game." ~Matt Taibbi   Free courses at https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/courses https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2020/12/how-to-have-a-healthy-dog-2/Subscribe to The DOGgone Truth Podcast on Soundwise

Flying in Midair
This week on Episode 151, this is Chapter Twenty-Five of my book, Animals Taught Me That. This chapter is about one incident with a hawk when we first moved to what was our desert retreat house. I say was because LOTS of houses and businesses have sprung up since so it's not as quiet or peaceful as it was 12 years ago. Nevertheless, I'm still grateful for all the encounters with wildlife we have had here and continue to do so. The photo with this episode is of a hawk sitting on our wall in our front yard this past summer.  Also in this episode is the AfterWord and Conclusion even though there is still one more chapter in this book (see below) - Shadrach the Neo Mastiff...Nuthin' But the Dog in Him. It was actually the first chapter I recorded a couple of years ago so don't miss it!    Scripture: Revelation 14   Article series that prompted the writing of this book: Come to the Edge, Part 1: The Scenario Come to the Edge, Part 2: The Questions Come to the Edge, Part 3: The Conclusion   Previous Recorded Chapters in the Book:  Introduction to Animals Taught Me That Chapter 1: A Fish Tale - On Desert Pond Chapter 2: The Honeysuckle Game Chapter 3: Geronimo and Big Red Chapter 4: Tippy Toes Chapter 5: The Cisco Kids Chapter 6: Working at the Pet Store Chapter 7: How Not to Raise a Dog!

Desert Dogs
This week on Episode 150, this is Chapter Twenty-Four of my book, Animals Taught Me That. This chapter is about the wild desert dogs (aka coyotes) that live in my area. WE encroached on THEIR territory but they manage to survive anyway. I tell of one up close and personal encounter I've had with them, but I've since had many since the writing of this book.  The photo with this episode is one I took of the female coyote who followed me and my Great Dane, Meshach one morning that I mention in this episode. She wasn't the last one to follow me and I'm sure she won't be the last.   Scriptures: "...be prepared in season and out of season." ~2 Timothy 4:2, NIV    Article series that prompted the writing of this book: Come to the Edge, Part 1: The Scenario Come to the Edge, Part 2: The Questions Come to the Edge, Part 3: The Conclusion   Previous Recorded Chapters in the Book:  Introduction to Animals Taught Me That Chapter 1: A Fish Tale - On Desert Pond Chapter 2: The Honeysuckle Game Chapter 3: Geronimo and Big Red Chapter 4: Tippy Toes Chapter 5: The Cisco Kids Chapter 6: Working at the Pet Store Chapter 7: How Not to Raise a Dog!

This week on Episode 149, this is Chapter Twenty-Three of my book, Animals Taught Me That. This chapter is about several of the wild animals that live in my desert sanctuary. It's also about seeing some things differently than we may perceive them.  Scripture: "I have seen you in your sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory." ~Psalm 63:2, NIV    Article series that prompted the writing of this book: Come to the Edge, Part 1: The Scenario Come to the Edge, Part 2: The Questions Come to the Edge, Part 3: The Conclusion   Previous Recorded Chapters in the Book:  Introduction to Animals Taught Me That Chapter 1: A Fish Tale - On Desert Pond Chapter 2: The Honeysuckle Game Chapter 3: Geronimo and Big Red Chapter 4: Tippy Toes Chapter 5: The Cisco Kids Chapter 6: Working at the Pet Store Chapter 7: How Not to Raise a Dog!

Healthcare or Disease Racketeering?
This week on Episode 148, I'm sharing a needed blast from my not so distant past but with all that is happening in the world today this is VERY appropriate to share. My former co-host and colleague and I share more on what is causing disease but masquerading as healthcare. It hasn't been about "health" in a very long time. This is the direction this show will focus on because this is the truth no matter who wants to believe it or not.  We WILL finish out the last three chapters of my book, Animals Taught Me That for the next three episodes, but this topic today is what we will come back to in February.    Quotes:  "If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything." ~Mark Twain  "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

Redemption: The Christmas Story
This week on Episode 147, this episode was recorded in December of 2009 on my former long-running podcast, Animal Talk Naturally with my co-host Dr. Jeannie Thomason for our 3rd Annual Christmas show we titled, Redemption. We had guest Kristie Jones, with giveaways and music (see below). It was fun as they always are - this was Part 1 as these shows were always 2 hour events. I hope you enjoy and are enjoying your holidays and celebrating the end of the most challenging year ever, 2020.    Book mentioned: Black Dog Ranch by Kristie Jones (no longer available)   Music by: Chelley Odle and Mary Ann Kennedy   Free courses at https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/courses Subscribe to The DOGgone Truth Podcast on Soundwise

Park Paws
This week on Episode 146, this is Chapter Twenty-Two of my book, Animals Taught Me That. This chapter is about primarily dogs I encountered at the park I ran at for ten years, plus one very special kitty, and a stinky surprise! This brought back all those memories for me and all but one were such good memories. While I feel I did beat myself up a lot in this book, I hope you come away inspired and encouraged instead. To know how much God loves you and His animal kingdom. As a friend told me recently be grateful for all the lessons they teach us - good, bad and ugly.    Scripture: "A friend loves at all times..." ~Proverbs 17:7, NIV    Article series that prompted the writing of this book: Come to the Edge, Part 1: The Scenario Come to the Edge, Part 2: The Questions Come to the Edge, Part 3: The Conclusion   Previous Recorded Chapters in the Book:  Introduction to Animals Taught Me That Chapter 1: A Fish Tale - On Desert Pond Chapter 2: The Honeysuckle Game Chapter 3: Geronimo and Big Red Chapter 4: Tippy Toes Chapter 5: The Cisco Kids Chapter 6: Working at the Pet Store Chapter 7: How Not to Raise a Dog!

When Animals Attack!
This week on Episode 145, this is Chapter Twenty-One of my book, Animals Taught Me That. This chapter is about a variety of animals that all decided I was a worthy target for one reason or another. I am fortunate as only one, our own family cat, actually did go through with the attack. However, I learned a lot more about animals through all of this as well as what we allow into our eyes and minds plays a huge role in what we attract into our lives too.    Scripture: "Show proper respect to everyone..." ~1 Peter 2:17, NIV    Article series that prompted the writing of this book: Come to the Edge, Part 1: The Scenario Come to the Edge, Part 2: The Questions Come to the Edge, Part 3: The Conclusion   Previous Recorded Chapters in the Book:  Introduction to Animals Taught Me That Chapter 1: A Fish Tale - On Desert Pond Chapter 2: The Honeysuckle Game Chapter 3: Geronimo and Big Red Chapter 4: Tippy Toes Chapter 5: The Cisco Kids Chapter 6: Working at the Pet Store Chapter 7: How Not to Raise a Dog!

Rest is a LAW of Health
This week on Episode 144, I went sort of out of the norm although of course I did talk about our dogs but also a lot about us. I was sort of all over the place but it all comes together if you listen to the whole message. How to heal simply and as cost effectively as possible - it's in this law of health that God mandated for our well being and the animals. The thing is, I'm not talking about sleeping lol although that IS part of the law of health. Just listen in and be patient, as I do get to it all weaving in stories as usual.    Blog post with this episode: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/2020/10/rest-a-law-of-health/  All article and previous related episodes are linked within this blog post.    Scripture: "...Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?" ~Esther 4:16, NKJV   Free Courses: https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com/courses Subscribe to The DOGgone Truth Podcast on Soundwise

Spices, Feathers, Fins, and Fur
This week on Episode 143, this is Chapter Nineteen of my book, Animals Taught Me That. This chapter is about a variety of species who also happened to leave a lasting impression upon my animal loving heart.

Canine Capers
This week on Episode 142, this is Chapter Eighteen of my book, Animals Taught Me That.  This chapter is all about the various dogs that have been in my life over the years that were NOT mine, but I loved them as if they were. Some are sad, some show the real dysfunction of my family life, some are fun and funny, but the ever constant was and is the love of dogs.  Scripture: "And he was called God's friend." ~James 2:23b, NIV  Article series that prompted the writing of this book: Come to the Edge, Part 1: The Scenario Come to the Edge, Part 2: The Questions Come to the Edge, Part 3: The Conclusion   Previous Recorded Chapters in the Book:  Introduction to Animals Taught Me That Chapter 1: A Fish Tale - On Desert Pond Chapter 2: The Honeysuckle Game Chapter 3: Geronimo and Big Red Chapter 4: Tippy Toes Chapter 5: The Cisco Kids Chapter 6: Working at the Pet Store Chapter 7: How Not to Raise a Dog!

Raindrops In Heaven
This week on Episode 141, this episode was recorded in August of 2009. It is in honor of Dr. David Stewart, who was our guest on the show (ATN) to talk about the benefits of aromatherapy. The title will make sense to you after you listen. Dr. Stewart passed away on October 12, 2020. He left an amazing legacy, and I am so blessed that he took time out of his busy schedule over ten years ago to share his wisdom with us.   Books mentioned: Chemistry of Essential Oils Made Simple and Healing Oils of the Bible by Dr. David Stewart (a book I've read 3 times - yes it's that good!)

Orange Tabby Trinity
This week on Episode 140, this is Chapter Seventeen of my book, Animals Taught Me That. This chapter is about three very special cats, orange tabbies to be exact! While only one of the three was mine, each one indelibly left their feline pawprint upon my heart. There is so much in these stories that I know I'd do differently now, but that is the journey we call life. I've been fortunate to have had so many animals gracing my own journey.  Scripture: "Come to me ally who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." ~Matthew 11:28, NIV    Article series that prompted the writing of this book: Come to the Edge, Part 1: The Scenario Come to the Edge, Part 2: The Questions Come to the Edge, Part 3: The Conclusion   Previous Recorded Chapters in the Book:  Introduction to Animals Taught Me That Chapter 1: A Fish Tale - On Desert Pond Chapter 2: The Honeysuckle Game Chapter 3: Geronimo and Big Red Chapter 4: Tippy Toes Chapter 5: The Cisco Kids Chapter 6: Working at the Pet Store Chapter 7: How Not to Raise a Dog!

Equine Escapades
This week on Episode 138, this is Chapter Sixteen of my book, Animals Taught Me That. This chapter is about several very special horses - aren't they all - that passed into and through my life over the years. My love of this animal has never grown cold and never will. Horses were my first animal love and will always remain so with dogs neck and neck with them! There are both sad and happy stories in this book - I never stray from the truth, but I always try to leave people with hope also.  Scripture: "I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True." ~Revelation 14:11, NIV    Article series that prompted the writing of this book: Come to the Edge, Part 1: The Scenario Come to the Edge, Part 2: The Questions Come to the Edge, Part 3: The Conclusion   Previous Recorded Chapters in the Book:  Introduction to Animals Taught Me That Chapter 1: A Fish Tale - On Desert Pond Chapter 2: The Honeysuckle Game Chapter 3: Geronimo and Big Red Chapter 4: Tippy Toes Chapter 5: The Cisco Kids Chapter 6: Working at the Pet Store Chapter 7: How Not to Raise a Dog!

The Prankster Pup
This week on Episode 137, this is Chapter fifteen of my book, Animals Taught Me That.  This story is about my special, prankster pup, Shadrach the Neo Mastiff! He inspired me to even want to write this book. Sharing this story with you brought back such good memories of the time I got to spend with him. He changed my life forever and I'm so grateful my husband and I got the privilege of sharing our home with this larger than life boy. While my workouts have changed from what I share in this episode, and I've had several dogs since Shadrach passed away in 2011, this story lives on in my heart until I am reunited with him once again in eternity.  Scripture: "Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy." ~Psalm 126:2, NIV  Article series that prompted the writing of this book: Come to the Edge, Part 1: The Scenario Come to the Edge, Part 2: The Questions Come to the Edge, Part 3: The Conclusion   Previous Recorded Chapters in the Book:  Introduction to Animals Taught Me That Chapter 1: A Fish Tale - On Desert Pond Chapter 2: The Honeysuckle Game Chapter 3: Geronimo and Big Red Chapter 4: Tippy Toes Chapter 5: The Cisco Kids Chapter 6: Working at the Pet Store Chapter 7: How Not to Raise a Dog!

One female, Trumps, and one male, Fridge. Both were such great dogs although very different even though they were the same breed.

Celebrating Health
This week on Episode 132, this time I took a trip down memory lane again and I'm really glad I did. Even though this episode was recorded in 2010, it's so appropriate for today. The focus is on health not illness. Not getting well, but rather BEING well - something I'll be sharing more and more on in upcoming podcasts.  Our guest was now retired veterinarian, Dr. Hugh Bassham, author of Better Health and a Plan to Achieve It  Another book we mentioned is Healing Oils of the Bible by Dr. David Stewart (a book I've read 3 times - yes it's that good!)   Quote: "Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction." ~JFK    Previous Podcasts That Support This one:  https://doggonetruth.podbean.com/e/the-vagus-nerve-and-your-dogs-health-pt1/ https://doggonetruth.podbean.com/e/the-vagus-nerve-and-your-dogs-health-pt2/ https://doggonetruth.podbean.com/e/history-of-pets-in-america-13/   Sign up for my newsletter on my website for updates, new courses, new blog posts, new podcast episodes, etc at https://www.aspenbloompetcare.com Subscribe to The DOGgone Truth Podcast on Soundwise
