Healing with Animals : Mystic Musings from the Zen Room

Healing with Animals

by Valerie O'Brien on 11/07/12

Animals are natural healers that emit a high vibrational frequency that penetrate our auric field that helps calm and relax us... enabling our bodies to begin the healing process.  This is why they are welcomed in nursing homes and extended care facilities (and many other hospital type settings)...our pets and best friends have a very important role to play in our recovery...no matter the illness or trauma. 

If you think about it, animals are used in many ways to help humans deal with many of our disabilities and/or limitations or medical conditions or just our day to day lives...from seeing eye dogs; to making a person aware when a seizure is coming on; detecting cancerous tumors; awaking the family when fire or carbon monoxide is building in the home; to protecting against attacks by wild animals or strangers; to keeping us company...and the list can go on forever...our pets are more than just a family member they are an incredibly important part of our lives and aid us on our healing journey's...asking so little in exchange.

I personally have 2 dogs and a cat...they all have their specialized way of healing. My Golden Retriever "Sara" is very empathic and picks up on a persons emotional pain and she is quick to deliver love and compassion...she hates to see anyone sad or unhappy in anyway.                                                 My little Cocker Spaniel "Angel" is a Reiki dog...she will go to the area on a person's body where they are needing lots of energy and will stay there acting as the conduit for the Universal Life Force energy to flow...she has done this since she was a very small pupply and use to insist on being in my Reiki room when I was working on a Reiki client. She is very sensitive to energy like most Reiki practitioner's are.                                                                                              Now Toby our newest animal family member is a grey & white domestic cat (still a kitten actually at only 6 months old) and he will adjust his purring vibration to help me get to sleep if I am struggling to drift off at night. I get the best sleeps ever when he works his magic.                                                      Now years ago I used to have another cat named "George" and a little Sheltie dog named "Casey"...these two very precious little guys actually alerted me to my pregnancy long befor any tests could accurately let me know...actually I had no idea why they were hovering around me like two little worried nursemaids until one day I decided to go and see why I was feeling a bit tired and different...my two guys were right I was pregnant and they became awesome nursemaids to my daughter after she was born...always letting me know when she was awake and fussing to when she was hungry etc... I even credit Casey to teaching my daughter how to walk...she had difficulty standing due to a leg problem in the beginning...so he would let her grab onto his long fur and once she pulled herself up into a standing position he would take very slow short steps to allow her to move/walk while holding onto him...it was quite amazing to watch! 

What my animals do are not unusual in any way. They are doing what comes natural to them and I am grateful to them for their very special healing talents. What people need to do is open up to their pets and allow them to work their magic...you will be amazed on how intuned your animal is with you...no one knows you better than they do.

So be aware of how wonderful your animal friends are and give them the love and care they so richly deserve...for they are giving you unconditional love and healing without strings attached every single day of their lives...and if they have any physical or emotional problems - make sure to give them the care they may need, because all they want to do is help you in kind.

Many Reiki Blessings to you and your animals...Valerie

OUR DEEPEST FEAR...written by Marianne Williamson in "A Return to Love"

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.       It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? 
Actually, who are you not to be? 
You are a child of God/Divine Light. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure about you. We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us: it's in everyone.
And, as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

​**This is one of my very favorite quotes written by a very gifted woman...if you are not familiar with Marianne Williamson...you may just want to explore her work...you won't be sorry you did! In light & love, Val
