Spirit Essences Self-Esteem
Self-Esteem Solution: helps victims stand up for themselves & stop tolerating teasing and abuse from other animals
For the picked-on animal, the doormat with a victim attitude. Some animals just seem to invite being picked on. They have a passive, docile attitude and run from conflict. This solution helps the victim stand up for himself and stop tolerating teasing and abuse. Studies in cats, for example, show that once the victim confronts its attacker, the attacker generally stops picking on it as vigorously.

Spirit Essences, please read...
Please remember that Jackson Galaxy's Spirit Essences™ are an aid and work when part of a holistic treatment program, that may include proper veterinary care, environment modifications and/or behavior modification.
Spirit Essences are not treating specific behaviors, but rather the emotional or energetic imbalances underlying them. By helping the animal feel happier and more secure, we increase the likelihood that behavioral problems will be correspondingly diminished or eliminated. While no treatment can be guaranteed to work 100% for every single case, it is a rare animal that does not noticeably respond to Spirit Essences.
HOW TO USE:
Spirit Essence remedies are not like medicines or drugs and need not be swallowed; once the drops contact the animal, they are doing their job.
Always tap the bottom of the bottle against the palm of your hand approximately 5 to 10 times before administering. This activates the essence formula and should be done each time immediately prior to administering. Try not to let the dropper contact anything that can cause contamination when the dropper is put back in the bottle. However, if this occurs, simply rinse the dropper in hot running water before replacing it in the bottle.
Your pet should think of receiving the formula as a good thing, so don’t try to force it by giving it to them orally – stressing your pet out while administering the essences will only serve to undermine our intent.
SEVERAL WAYS TO GIVE SPIRIT ESSENCES TO YOUR PET:
-Put a few drops in your hand, rub hands together and pet your animal’s head, body, ears, and/or paws.
-Add 3-5 drops to water and food (more drops does not equal better results)
-Use the optional spray top to mist a room, carrier, bedding, car interior, litterbox area or other specific problem area. Misting the house or apartment is a great way to treat the whole household. (Do not mist the animal directly!)
-Apply a few drops to or mist a favorite toy that you are sure they will play with several times a day.
-If they resist touch, let the drops fall directly on fur, top of paws, etc.
If you are treating only one animal in a multi-animal household, it is perfectly all right to put the Spirit Essences in the common drinking water. It will not adversely affect the other animals, and may even be beneficial if those particular essences are also appropriate for them. If several animals in a household are being given different essence combinations, administer the drops by mouth or topically around the head and ears.
You may find that more than one Spirit Essences solution applies to your pet. This is quite common, but narrow it down to 2 or maximum 3 formulas. The one that applies the most and should be given the longest is your base solution. The base solution gets put in water and wet food every day, so it’s available most often.
Apply the complementary solution topically or orally up to four times daily and mist the 3de complementary solution in socially significant areas like beds, condos, sofas, etc.
Do not mix the solutions, because each Spirit Essences solution contains an average of 15-20 essences in them. Mixing them into one application would just be overwhelming and will not have the singular effect.
Start with 3 or 4 times a day, for 2 to 4 weeks. Once improvement is established, usually within 2-4 weeks, you can wean the animal off by gradually decreasing the frequency of administration: adding a few drops to the drinking water along with a once-a-day administration will probably be adequate. Some animals may need to remain on essence treatment long term, and some may see resolution very quickly. Most animals will benefit from long-term administration of a maintenance solution.
HOW TO STORE THE FORMULAS & WHEN DO THEY EXPIRE?
Store Spirit Essences remedies out of direct sunlight and away from strong odors (cosmetics, medicines, spices) or electromagnetic fields (microwave, refrigerator, stereo). In other words, a cabinet is best. Once opened, if stored properly, formulas are good for up to 3 years. Unopened bottles stored in a cool cupboard will last longer than 3 years.
WILL IT INTERFERE WITH MEDICATIONS?
No, Spirit Essences will not interfere with any medications. Dr. Jean Hofve, leading holistic veterinarian and co-creator of Spirit Essences says, “because essences work on an energetic rather than physical level, they do not interfere with medical treatments like drugs and surgery; or with alternative therapies such as homeopathy, acupuncture, or herbs; or any other therapy that affects the physical body.”
Alcohol has been used as a preservative in flower essences since 1920 and is a trusted method. If you find that your animal friend is averse to the smell: Take your pets’ dishes and run them under hot water for about 45 seconds. Empty the water out, leaving a hot bowl. Put your normal dosage in the dish (3-5 drops). Wait another minute, then add cold water to the water bowl and wet food to the food dish. This will speed up the evaporation process drastically and also keep everything safe since we’re only removing alcohol one serving at a time.
