Hi forum friends, about time I came back to chat!!  I cannot believe it has been almost 3 months since my last post here??!!  No excuses, simply that life happens, but I am still riding on the SwamiXpress vehicle. Like with any ride, we may be encountering unscheduled stops and get trapped in big storms when the prevailing winds throw all kinds of uncompliant dangerous missiles at us compounding the destructive effect of stress hormones flash flooding our paths, but, as long as we stay within the confines of our vehicles, even when the lights are off and we drive in the wrong direction, once we let go, our pre-programmed SwamiXpress GT autopilot will guide us back to safety.

In a roundabout way, that is in a nutshell what has been happening with me in the last few months.  Like I said, life happens, but it is mainly how we react to it that counts, and how we react to it depends on our bio composition.  Now, by determining what goes into our mouths and what dominates our thoughts, we have the power to control what this composition is (chemical, genetic, spiritual, mental energy ...), and how we react to life, or how we live life, making us, be us.  The formula is very simply: Eat and live according to your composition.  Dr D is telling us how, all we have to do is apply it, 24/7, no shortcuts.  When the ride gets tough, wind up the windows of your vehicle and buckle up!! or you are bound to get thrown  around and end up with a few bumps!! You see, I must have left my windows down during this part of my ride, so, in the middle of a storm,  some uncompliant missiles hit me, and the stressful flash flooding hormones stalled my vehicle for a while, only a few moments ...   I am back on track now, recovering some lost ground!  I have also managed to pick up a helper on the way.  Isnt she cute?  Her name is Zuri, Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy born on the 12/12/09.  She has been with us since 10 weeks old.  

She will be a big dog!!!  She is only 17 weeks and when standing on her two legs she can reach my shoulders no problems!  The only way to manage a dog this size is by applying a balancing formula to our lives: excercising, rules-boundaries-limitations and affection.  That is the Dog Whisperer psychology, but it is also what Dr D has been trying to tell us to apply to our lives:  Excercice our bodies according to our GT, apply the rules, boundaries and limitations according to our GT regarding feeding our bodies and provide affection to others and ourselves by applying relaxation, meditation and affection that will keep us calm and balanced and healthy overall.

The beauty is that if I am not balanced, if I skip my daily walks or did not relax enough to keep stress under control (A types weakness), I cannot control Zuri: she will ignore my commands, she will be going into uncontrollable override mode and hurt herself or us in the process!!!  So, she is my balance monitoring tool, the evidence that all is well and under control from now on ...

Good to see you are OK.  Sounds (and looks) like you have a hand full of dog, but that she is manageable when you do your part.  This is a wonderful way to monitor compliance.  We each have to find tools to get the job done.

Helloooooo Cristina and welcome back to BTD/GTD land.  Sounds like you have had some interesting events.  And Zuri is georgeous.    Somewhere on here we had guesses as to what you had.  Not sure if it is still on the threads.  Hope to hear more from you.

Welcome back Cristina! Glad Zuri can serve as your monitoring tool. I am in a Catch 22 with my yorkies! They are keeping me up all night causing my balance to go a tilt, then ignoring my commands! Starting tonight they are OUT of the bedroom. Got any earplug recommendations for the next few nights????

Thank you all!!  It feels so good to be back!

Lisa, are they getting enough exercise?  Do you practice rules, boundaries and limitations before affection with them?  They have got to work for your affection, so sleeping in the bedroom is a privilege they earn, if they do not decerve it, they should be out.  Our Zuri has her cage/den in the laundry, that is her bedroom, but, if she stays calm submisive she is allowed to choose where she sleeps, which usually ends up being on my side of the bed (on the floor).

I have been watching the Dog Whisperer (Cesar Milan) and learning a lot about dog psychology.  If they are misbehaving in the bedroom, they probably think they own it and they have probably adopted the role of pack leaders in the house.  Make sure you do the ownership exercise for every room in the house, that is, they are only allowed in when they are calm submissive and invited in by the Pack Leader: You.  Otherwise  donate ear plugs to your neighbours, and live them be on a designated safe area, away from the pack leaders!!They have to learn to respect you and your space!!  
Have fun!!

Also, whatever you do, do it only when you, yourself are in a calm, relaxed, balance state.  The dogs will let you know if you are tense because they will try to match your energy!!  Firm, assertive, calm, relax.  For us As that means controlling the surge of stress hormones trying to dominate our lives.  I am not sure how easy it is to achieve the balance state in difficult situations for Os, but use the tools Dr D has for your type ...

I love the Dog Whisperer.. what a great phylisophy in living.. great combo with BTD..

I did not know I should get a big dog.. one bigger thanI .. hahah no way.. but the idea pleases my psychy. Maybe I can visualize the dog walking next to me???


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

It is amazing the effect that our stress hormones have on the energy we portrait.  I suppose dogs being more in touch with the natural world are able to pick up on that a lot quicker than us humans.  The more compliant with the lifestyle true to my type, the easier it feels to fall into the balance energy field.  I just came back from my hour walk with Zuri and my going to bed late last night without my usual few minutes of meditation showed on her performance during the walk.  I know I will be watching what I eat and think during the day today with greater attention.  This Dog Whisperer fan differs from those out thee in that, because of being here, I have the tools and guidelines to apply to maintain balance in my life
