Many people come to me and ask what they can do to help heal their pets. It is really distressing to see an animal in pain or discomfort and not be able to help them. Animals are a reflection of how the household (especially their owner) is managing day to day stress. Personally, the 1st step for me is to see how I’m handling my stress, checking to see what energy I’m bringing into the home and how any of my animals are behaving differently.
We’ve all had bad days at work, grumbling all the way home and without thinking, we take this energy into our house. This affects everyone in the household including our pets – even down to our little wet friends, our fish! I can go into a household and feel the energy before I’ve even started communicating with the animals to know if there is stress loitering around. It’s amazing how stress energy can completely change a home.
The 1st step is to check yourself and see how you’re managing your own life stresses and whether you bring this into the home. If you are, it’s just a simple daily practise of being aware of what energy you would like to bring in before you come home. The results will speak for themselves as they are your pets and you will notice a difference. You can also burn incense/oil burners to cleanse the energy of your home as well (frankincense/ lavender).
If stress is not the cause (I always encourage visiting your local vet – you still need an animal Dr to diagnose and to do any tests), then the way you hold your energy while connecting to your pet is the next step in giving a healing. There are many ways to do this…
Reiki is one of them, being attuned to Reiki energy opens up the top 4 chakras so they can expand and increase to receive and give Reiki.
Acupuncture, I’m a strong believer in acupuncture for animals (and us humans). This works with energy, based on the meridians, creating balance and harmony in the body. Great for physical injuries and rehabilitation.< Bush Flower Essences for animals, there are quite a few specifically to help animals with fear aggression, fear of thunder and barking. It’s a very gentle approach for your pet. I just taught a Reiki I Workshop over the weekend and had quite a few pet lovers in the class. I love tailoring it towards animals. They are so aware of energy whether it’s right next to them or from a far. I regularly use Reiki on my animals (including my partner Jules), they come to me now when they’re not feeling well and will ask for it. They even position themselves so they show me the area that needs healing. For those that just want a simple technique that you can do yourselves at home right now, here’s one that you can use anytime, anyplace and can include humans as well as your pets. Using Colour with Energy.
- 1stconnect with your petReally feel them, really connect/ looking at them and how they make you feel happy
- You can look into their eyes or at a photo of them
- Think of a colour that is healingImagine rolling this colour into the palms of your hands like a small ball until it gets bigger and bigger
- e.g. blue/pink/gold/white
When you have the size that you’re after (you can go as big as a basket ball or bigger however a basket ball should be a good size) then imagine the colour and size in the palm of your hand and BLOW it gently towards your pet or pet’s photo.
Do this as often as you like, it’s great for when you’re moving house, changing jobs or your pet is a touch grumpy. It’s even brilliant to do on yourself and brighten up your own day.
Take note of when you started doing this and if/when you noticed a difference in your pet’s behaviour, positive or negative it’s a good exercise to try with your pet today.
