Healing_Animals_and_the_Vision_of-One_Health

Let me start this review by saying that Healing Animals and The Vision of One Health: Earth Care and Human Care is not a cat book. So why am I reviewing it here? Because it is an amazing book that touches on so many things that matter a great deal to me: conscious living, animal health, human health, the health of our planet, the health care crisis for both animals and humans, and the many pitfalls of commercial pet food, to name just a few.

Michael Fox is a veterinarian best known for his syndicated “Animal Doctor” column.

Clearing the clutter

The physical surroundings we live in every day in our homes, offices and cars have a strong impact on us.  When you exist in less than desirable environments, for example a messy car or a desk covered with piles, the space that surrounds you is not an accurate reflection of the Source within you.  Cluttered environments drain your energy.  Just think about the last time you organized a drawer or cleaned your car – do you remember how accomplished you felt, and how you were able to approach the rest of your day from a much lighter perspective?  That’s because you released stagnant, cluttered energy.

You don’t need to take on everything at once.  If you think you need to declutter your entire office , it can feel too overwhelming and you may not even start.  Begin with one small project, a drawer at a time, and watch how your energy changes as you clear out the clutter in your life.
