Animal Healing

Do you ever have that feeling that you have a higher calling?  That you were born to do something, something that tugs at every fiber of your being until you feel as if you'll burst if you don't follow that path?  Animal healing and helping animals is my higher calling.  Well, one of them anyway.  Ever since I can remember I've had a huge connection with animals.  I adore them.  I remember being very little and sitting outside loving on the stray cats and wishing I could own hundreds of animals so I can be in their presence 24/7.

I don't really know where my connection to animals came from.  I actually relate more to animals than humans and I prefer their company over people.  I've been told on numerous occasions that I vibrate at a higher frequency (like animals) than most humans which allows me to relate better to animals.  It also causes animals to see me as one of them and will result in them to seek me out and trust me.  I'm not sure if there's much truth to that theory but I find it fascinating.

When I was a kid I said I was going to be a Veterinarian.  The older I got the more realistic I became.  I'm not doctor material, but I never wavered on my love of animals.  Stray animals flocked to me, I constantly stopped in the middle of the road to shoo turtles and geese out of harm's way, and I began volunteering.  I adjusted my dream of being a veterinarian to wanting to own a farm where I could rescue and adopt out animals as well as rescue and rehabilitate wildlife.  I also wanted to save farm animals' lives since they live such doomed lives because of the food industry.

The more I volunteered with animal shelters the more I realized I had a gift.  I would sit down and these abused and skiddish cats and dogs would walk up to me and lay down.  I'd place my hands on them and it felt as if they melted in my hands.  They relaxed and radiated so much love and relief that it would bring tears to my eyes. I would also feel hot and cold sensations in various points in their bodies and that would tell me issues they were having with their health.  I would inform the shelter or the vet I was working with to check the issue and I'd be proven right.

I practiced animal healing all the time without even realizing that's what I was doing.  One of my cats is very sickly and I was constantly performing healings on her that left her relaxed and in such a deep sleep that I would check to make sure she was still breathing.  I spent this past summer healing my mom's elderly dog and that was when I had an epiphany.  I heard my guide say "this is what you're meant to do".  I even told my mom that I thought I was an animal healer and was meant to help heal animals.  I'm sure she was skeptical and wondering what the heck I was babbling about but I knew that moment of clarity changed me forever.  I spent the rest of that summer placing my hands on Jack (my mom's dog) and offering gifts of love and peace and relief to help him prepare for his transition into death.  I left in August and he passed peacefully in his sleep in September.

I bought a book about animal healing written by Margrit Coates and not even ten pages in I realized I was just like her.  She's a well known healer in England and described her methods of placing her hands on the animal's chakra points and using her own healing energy along with gifts of love to help the animals she worked on.  I had this moment where I thought to myself  "holy crap!  I do this already!"  It turns out I was a natural born animal healer and it took me 29 years to figure it out completely.  I felt like an idiot but I also felt very empowered.

After realizing that there really was something to what I was doing I started practicing more on my cats and dog.  I'd place my hands on their chakra points, listen to my intuition, and then do my best to radiate a bright white light as well as enough love to consume a herd of elephants.  I couldn't believe that I was seeing their reactions as I was giving them these energies.  They would sigh, close their eyes, relax, lick me, and sometimes even look up at me with incredible amounts of love and relief.  It's such an amazing feeling to know that I was contributing to their well being.

I've learned to use my healing abilities and intuition to make a difference.  I can be in the presence of another animal and hear, and sometimes feel, what they need and if they're sick.  The problem with this gift is that a lot of people don't want to hear that something is wrong with their pet.  They are skeptical, annoyed, and very closed minded.  It's never a good idea to offer unsolicited advice, at least that's what I've learned.  I'm still learning how to speak up in a way that doesn't offend so that I can at least try to help the animal in need.
I'm still learning.  I have found though that the more open I am the more people come to me asking questions about their pets.  I am always very upfront that I am not a doctor but I am fortunate enough to be able to offer behavioral and environmental changes along with healing techniques to improve the animal's health and well being (even from a great distance!).

I'm still trying to figure out this whole animal healing thing.  That's why I offer my services for free.  I'm always asking to practice and constantly trying to work on as many different types of animals as possible, including chickens.  It's exciting to know that I am finally on the right path to my true calling.  I may not fully understand it and that's fine with me.  The important thing is that I get to connect with animals on a soul level.  That I get to help them and that they are heard.  I can't think of anything better than knowing I am following my true path.
