As I wrote about in my book, The Attractor Factor, one of my fundamental beliefs is “There is always a way.”

I don’t care what the problem or challenge happens to be. Either a solution, cure or healing exists, or one can be created. That empowering belief helps me use the Law of Attraction to attract a solution.

I have used that underlying premise for decades now. It’s helped me handle cancer scares, IRS audits, weight loss, pet health issues and more.

For now, let’s talk about pet health issues.

I love animals. I’ve had pets my entire life. At one point I owned eleven cats. Yes, eleven.

Cats age and often get ill, just like humans. Yes, I’m surprised, too.

Recently one of our senior citizens, Chelsea, couldn’t move her back legs.  She would hop to food.  She couldn’t walk, so she mostly dragged herself. It was sad to see, and scary. We didn’t want to think of losing her, or her suffering.

I took her to the local vet. They took x-rays.  They came back with the results: Chelsea’s spine was fusing at the base. She needed surgery, but at her age (fourteen) it wasn’t a good idea.

The vet offered no hope.

I didn’t accept surgery or ‘nothing’ as our options.

I knew, “There is always a way.”

I jumped online. I Googled “cure cat spine problems.” One of the top results was about acupuncture for pets.

Acupuncture for animals?

I’ve done acupuncture. I don’t like needles any more than you do, but I have to admit it worked for me.

Would it work for Chelsea?

Was it possible?

I searched my area and found a local Austin, Texas vet who did chiropractic work and acupuncture on cats and dogs.

I drove Chelsea there. Here she is getting her first acupuncture treatment:

Did this treatment work?

Was it worth the drive, cost and effort?

The very next day Chelsea was walking.

She is not perfectly normal yet, but she moves her back legs, walks with a limp rather than a hop or a drag, and looks happy and healthy.

Again, if you come from the empowering belief that “There is always a way,” you open your mind to seeing new possibilities.

Here’s a video of Chelsea getting her second acupuncture treatment:

    Thank you for sharing with us not only the professional, but the personal life of a wonderful Teacher.

    I love cats and I’m really glad to know she is better.

    Bravo, Joe!! As another cat-lover I’m applauding you. I’m just exploring alternative treatments now for a cat with (apparent) sinus cancer.
    And…Joe, as one who lost a husband despite all (and I do mean ALL) possible means, mainstream, advanced experimental, and energy work, believing “there’s always a way” – sometimes there isn’t, and letting go can be the kindest thing. With that said, I’m SO glad that your Chelsea is better!

    Dear Joe,
    Thank-you so much for this article on Pet healing. I have searched and searched for someone to try something different for my beloved Lab. You have helped so much, now I know where to look. People forget about healing for pets, but not you!
    God Bless,
    PS I’m so happy your beautiful Chelsea is healed!
    PPS I had a kitty who looked just like Chelsea and she lived on this earth for 16 loving years. She was a sweetie pie. 🙂

    The cat was very relaxed and accepting of the needles, which surprised me. I found it very interesting to watch. I have had alot of accupuncture on myself and it is a wonderful healing tool.
    Thankyou Joe for sharing this film.

    What a cutie she is! Thanks for sharing. Get well soon, Chelsea! Did you google “raw food for pets”? My friend managed to heal her cat from cancer with raw food. Take care, Eva

  7. Hi Joe,

    Good to hear that Chelsea is better.

    And as you say it’s good to remember that “there is always a way!”

    Warm Greetings,

    I’m always looking foward your teachings as one of the biggest Loa masters but I find you even more trustable as you love animals. I adopt and am crazy about them.
    So nice of you taking so good care of him. Hope he gets better!
