elkhart lake, WI, United States, 2021/02/15 - Author Barbara Techel shares the story of how her special needs dachshund served as a reflection to help her heal a painful, recurring vision that plagued her for over two decades, transform the pain, and understand she is worthy just as she is - DogWrite.
DogWriters.org, helping writers since 1935 share all things related to our love of dogs announced I’m Fine Just the Way I Am Healing Emotional Pain through the Wisdom of Animals and Oracles as the winner of the 2020 Rio Award profiling a dog who changed someone’s life in a profoundly positive way.
The Rio Award is sponsored by award-winning journalist, Jen Reeder and her husband, Bryan Fryklund, in honor of their beloved Labrador retriever mix, Rio.
Author, Barbara Techel, takes you on a deep, intimate, and powerful journey as she explores the significance of a painful recurring vision that plagued her life for over two decades. To do so, she had to call upon every ounce of courage, faith, and commitment, or be swallowed by the depression and anxiety that had consumed her.
I’m Fine Just the Way is the true story of how Barbara became like a metaphysical detective and employed a myriad of tools, each serving as a building block to self-knowledge and healing. She learns to tap into her intuition and the insight from oracle cards on a level she has never done before. She also examines her dreams and embraces the power of ceremony and life-enhancing breathwork. Most importantly, perhaps, she learns to accept help from others and trust in the process, understanding that the turmoil in her life is truly happening for her, not to her.
As in her previous two memoirs, Barbara also draws on the profound teachings she received from animals from her special needs dachshund, Gidget, who served as a reflection of the darkness and what needed to be healed, to a snake who helped her shed what she no longer needed, a wolf who encouraged her to keep her heart open, and a horse who empowered her to stand in her strengths.
