Bringing Reo Home
Before Reo, the last dog I brought home was Jersey, and it was 7 years ago (July 17, 2012). Including Jersey, I had 12 dogs.
Since then, I promised myself not to have anymore dogs, until I have more than enough income to take care of them.
I didn’t have a stable income when I started rescuing dogs in 2007. I quit my job to start a business, but then I found the 5 puppies who sort of changed my initial life plans.
It’s really stressful when having a dozen dogs without a job and didn’t know when the next income would be coming in.
Looking back now, it’s really amazing how we could survive. I’m always grateful to the earth angels who were there for my dogs and me.
My life was really miserable for about 6 years. Somewhere at the end of 2013, I found Abraham Hicks on Youtube.
At first I was confused and didn’t know what was happening when this lady, Esther Hicks, talking about herself as third person.
So I did some research and found out that Esther is channeling Abraham. For some people this might sound weird, but not for me as my late grandfather was a shaman. So I grew up with this sort of things.
But I believe even I didn’t grew up with this kind of things, at that point in my life I would still give it a try as I already exhausted everything else that “make sense” or the mainstream ways of achieving success.
What did I get to lose? When you already at rock-bottom, the only way is up.
When I started applying what I learned, my life also started getting better and better. At the end of 2017, I got a new job with tripled salary and got to move to a bigger house.
At this point I left with 4 dogs. One went missing and the rest had transitioned to non-physical.
I still remember how my grandfather would response when his friends asked about me.
FAQ 1: Is the kid a boy or a girl?
FAQ 2: Is the kid yours?
And my grandfather would always answer, “He’s a boy and his my youngest child.” Then he would look at me and smiled.
My grandmother would get irritated at him because he liked to say things that were obviously not true or we didn’t know that it would be true because it had not happened yet.
Like when people worried that I didn’t want to go to school, he would say, “This one will go study overseas.”
And true enough, I graduated from Marquette University, Milwaukee, U.S.A. in 1998 with bachelor degree in Industrial Engineering.
A girl from a small town in Johor, Malaysia, who dressed and behaved as a boy and didn’t go to school until age 11. Who would believe that? Well, my grandfather did.
Sadly, he didn’t get to send me off at the airport or see me graduated because he passed away when I was 12.
Life wasn’t as great after that because the one person who supported me 100% wasn’t there. But I’m blessed that he was a major part of my life and I learned a lot from him.
I remember one time at a bus stop when I was a teenager going home from school, a bunch of boys shouting some bad words at me. I just smiled and walked away. In my head, “You poor boys are gonna die in this small boring town, but I’m gonna be successful and do great things.”
At that point, my dream was to become a millionaire and motivational speaker. I read a lot of motivational books from people like Napoleon Hills, Zig Ziglar and Robert Kiyosaki. I also spent thousands of Ringgits to go to seminars to learn about how to achieve success.
I applied the things I learned which mainly, WORK HARD, FOLLOW YOUR PASSION, TAKE RISK, DON’T GIVE UP.
For more than a decade I suffered, stressed and exhausted. Yet, I didn’t see slightest “success” that I dreamed of.
But this change in 2013, after I got remanded due to my dog video that went viral because it offended people.
In case you don’t know, the culture here in Malaysia, the Malays cannot have dogs as pets. Dogs are “haram”, which means if you touch them, you go to Hell.”
Until now I still don’t understand why the whole country became hysterical, because it’s not like I went from house to house and force the Malays to touch my dogs.
Anyway, this event got me into thinking real hard about what did I miss or did wrong in my pursuit of making my dreams a reality.
That’s when I discovered Esther Hicks who channels Abraham. From them, I learned a new way to living an awesome life and the best examples are from the beasts or the animals on this earth.
I started to observe my dogs and applied what I learned from Abraham and my dogs. Magical things happened and my life got better and better.
Sometimes I wish I had knew this knowledge sooner, so I wouldn’t have to suffer for 2 decades. But I also understand now that “Everything is as it should be.”
And now I’m inspired to share my story and experience about living an awesome life, what I learned from my dogs, to those who want to make their dreams a reality with ease and fun and not through suffering.
You don’t have to suffer to be happy.
