Dog spirit animal

This little pooch has found her way into my life in the most unusual, unexpected way. She has stolen my heart to say the truth. Her name is Cinnamon and it’s hard to believe she’s been here over a week already. Where is the time fleeting to?

Btw. Thank you to some of you who are already following her adventures on Instagram at Lil_MissCinnamon. 💙 You guys are the best.

I have always found myself deeply connected to Native American wisdom, believing in spirit animals and looking into the eyes of a soul vs. seeing an animal. I relate to the wisdom, the way of life, respecting and living off of the land while feeling Mother Nature under my feet in her most beautiful, sacred soul. Nature is like coming home for me, a place to recharge and be still. To be amazed and left in awe about the beauty that is to be found everywhere. There is a knowing, a connection, a feeling of familiarity to Native American beliefs that doesn’t need an explanation, but is accepted with the deepest of gratitude. I believe in plant medicine and natural approaches. But I’m getting side tracked and need to get back to this little girl…

I already share such a deep connection with her, and even before I got to see her, as her Foster Mom pulled up in the driveway, I was overcome with emotions. I knew and felt that she was special. I knew she needed me and I knew I needed her. It was as if my soul recognized hers before our eyes met, holding her for the first time. And she would heal a part of me that has been inaccessible, until now. I do believe that empath’s heal people, and animals heal empath’s.

Honestly I’m surprised that I’m just now looking into the meaning of the dog spirit animal. Especially since she has crossed my path in such an extraordinary way. She must be bearing a message for me. And here is what I found.

Due to the vast diversity and variety of dogs, this message is not specific to her breed but more general. This message was interpreted from Dr. Steven Farmer.

Keep your faith strong no matter what’s going on in your life. It’s important for you to volunteer something purely in the spirit of service. Remain determined and resolute even if you face some negativity or disappointment. Show your love and appreciation in creative ways to those you’re closed to. Give your loyalty to those you love and cherish.

In the spirit of service….

I’ve thought for awhile what that could be and how I could volunteer and show my love in such a way. I have decided to send a collective Reiki healing to the world and to everyone who is struggling in some way. As many face a new world and way of life, I feel it is needed. And even if life is just the same old for you, you will still benefit because all of us carry our suitcase of troubles in some way.

So whether they are due to physical illness, pain, depression, mental illness, loneliness, fear, anxiety, worthlessness, self doubt, conflict, anger, frustration, isolation, addiction or dependency, failure and other uglinesses, whatever it is, please accept this Reiki healing and blessing into your soul. Know that you are not alone and that you matter. That we give thanks for you and your courage and determination to fight. That your will not to give up is cheered on and admired, for you are fighting battles every day, none of us know anything about. May you find strengths in this healing and be surrounded by the most beautiful glow of white light and unconditional love.

Giving you the opportunity to read this and become aware, I have decided on a date and time for this session to commence. This healing will take place on Monday November 9th at 7PM (19.00) pacific standard time. For some of you, living in Europe, it will be in the middle of the night and the only thing you have to do is to be aware that during your beauty sleep a generous dose of healing will come your way. So smile and relax as you drift off into dreamland. Sweet dreams, you are loved and I will see you there…


We are the co-creators of our life and the time is now. More than ever are we needed to support Mother Earth and each other. Together we discover and explore our unique gifts in times of strengths, in times we lean on each other, and in times when we learn from each other. This blog started as an outlet and what I ultimately called my “Warriors Journey.” It was a way to document the ups and downs of my life, sharing my hardships as well as my successes. It showcased the struggles, but more important the ways of how to overcome them. Although we are warriors each and every day, I realized that having to be a warrior, comes from a place of pain. I decided to rename this blog, and “Phoenix Rising” now stands for the story of overcoming such a painful place. My motivation for this blog hasn’t changed and I hope to share inspiration and hope, to create a sense of belonging, a space of being heard, and connecting with like minded beings who instill a sense of oneness. We are never alone, and we are unstoppable in the pursuit of what sets our soul on fire. Who I am in a nutshell... 
I am an energy healer and Reiki Master. I am surviving a chronic disease that I’ve sent into remission three times since my initial bout, 15 years ago. I continuously challenge the status quo and by doing so I change my stars. I am a believer that anything is possible. I am a hopeless romantic and I believe that true love exists on various levels. I am an optimist that will always see the glass as half full. I am a dreamer, believing in endless possibilities. Not even the sky is the limit. I have jumped off of the hamster wheel, and I am writing a new chapter. I am chasing my Nirvana to support my most authentic self. This is my story, I am that Phoenix and I am rising from the ashes. Namaste 🙏🏼💙🦋

  1. Darling Rhapsody, I loved your post today about your glorious puppy Cinnamon.
    I too have a spirit animal living with us and his name is Gibson. He is a rescue dog from South Carolina. We got him when he was 18 months. He has rescued us too. His birthday is June 3, 2017 the same day my mom died, and I really feel like Gibson is a gift from her.
    I will be ready for your healing energy tomorrow evening. Thank you. Sending you lots of love ❤️ ❤️

      The date of his birth is no coincidence and I’m sure it has great meaning for you. How very special. ❤️

  2. It’s been a couple of posts here and on Instagram, and I felt something special about Little Miss Cinnamon. It’s only tonight that I understand why… My last dog, which I had rescued as a week old (or about) puppy in Africa, was called Canelle (Cinnamon in French). She was so small back then, that she fit in on of my father’s running shoes. Just like your Little Miss, she stole our hearts away, and she stayed with us for the rest of her life.

    I hope that you and Cinnamon will spend many many years of that special connection 🙂 Love you, Gorgeous 🙂 xxx

  3. So much wonderful in there!!! First, yay! To finally get to meet the one to has stolen your heart. Double yay to healing!! Reading most of your blogs is like you pulled my thoughts from my mind, or emotions from my heart and turned them into words. Setting an alarm for your Reiki healing. I will be sure to find a place of serenity to be at that time. Namaste Sister! 🕊🦋

    1. Awe thank you most kindly. I knew you would relate to much of the content, as it speaks from each other’s heart as if it was our own.
      Thank you for joining me tonight. It’s almost time to get ready and I will see you shortly in the energetic.
      Namaste sweet soul 💙🙏🏼


    1. Since there are so many dog breeds, the meaning is generalized to fit all breads.
      It is very interesting to say the least. Keep your eyes open for unusual animal encounters such as animals crossing your path in places you wouldn’t expect them. When you see it, google that animal under “dog spirit animal and meaning” for example to get your answer. 😉

  4. In my humble opinion if you are a human being you need a dog, maybe a cat but dogs teach you more about yourself. I am happy that you found the “spice” for your life. I know that I would not be here as whole and happy as I am without the love of my Ursula 7.

    1. Oh I totally agree and she is definitely not my first furry friend. They are special souls and are a part of the family for sure. Thank you so much for stopping by Derek. Have a great start to your week.
