Can animals get PTSD? Yes! And Animal Communication and Energy Healing can help!

Animals can help humans with PTSD, and we can help animals with PTSD.

Today, many rescued animals experience PTSD. They need help to heal before they can integrate into your family. Animal Communication and Energy Healing are two powerful tools to assist them.

Why do so many animals experience trauma today?

Many of the reasons are similar to those experiences that can cause PTSD in humans.

~~ Too early separation from the mother dog, cat, or horse, for whatever reason.

~~ Separation from their human family due to hurricanes, storms, flooding, fires, earthquakes, and other weather or earth-changing event in which people and their animals can become separated.

~~ Being shuffled from one rescue place to another in the genuinely loving effort to find the rescued animal a new home.

~~ Traumatic loss because the family is no longer able to keep the animal due to financial and/or health changes.

~~ When animals are dropped off at shelters or abandoned without explanation, they are confused, scared, hurt, angry, grieving, and afraid – just to name a few emotions that come up for them.

~~ When the shelter is one that kills animals after so many days, the animals know they might be killed, and the spirits of other animals killed there may be lingering, making the situation even more uncomfortable.

This is not a complete list, but this list illustrates that one or more of these experiences may make integrating into a new loving family a challenge for the animal you’ve so lovingly adopted.

The good news is that animals can recover from PTSD. 

When you adopt an animal from a rescue facility, you may not realize immediately that the animal is having difficulty adjusting.

I’ve had clients ask for my assistance after struggling for a year or more to connect with a cat or dog or horse who has experienced a traumatic event.

These clients are good, kind, loving, nurturing people who have tried everything they can think of to help their new animal companion adjust.  Often they have been pouring love to an animal who is not open to receiving it.

Of course, the sooner you ask for assistance, the sooner you and the animal will begin to build trust and open a loving connection between you.

When an animal is emotionally shut down, afraid of experiencing yet another loss, and/or distrustful that this will be their “forever” home, something else must be added to the equation to assist them.

Whatever history you have about the animal is also a very important piece of the puzzle.

Using my Animal Communication and energy healing skills, I can offer you and your new companion special assistance.

Over several sessions, I am able to establish a rapport with an animal who is very shut down.

It can actually help me connect with them because I’m not physically present.

Working from a distance, I can easily make a telepathic connection, which some animals experience as less intrusive than a human stranger being physically in the animal’s space.

Furthermore, telepathically and energetically …

~~ I can feel what the animal is feeling because I’m a strong emotional empath.

~~ I can feel if the animal has a huge wall around themselves, or just needs some additional reassurance.

~~ I can feel if the animal is distrustful and can suggest ways of building trust.

~~ I can often feel if the animal is hiding something or lying to me and/or to themselves.

~~ I can ask other animals in your family for any insights they want to share, assuming they have already met the new family member.  These often prove to be of immense value in understanding what’s going on with an animal who is too closed down to share very much.

~~ I can scan the animal energetically, with the animal’s permission, to pick up energy patterns in their auric field, chakras, and physical body.

Once we have a better understanding of what’s going on for that animal, we together develop a plan of action.

~~ Sometimes Flower Essences are a good way to start.  I am able to suggest appropriate essences to assist you and your animal companion(s).

~~ As a Certified Practitioner of The Emotion Code, developed by Dr. Bradley Nelson, I know what a valuable tool this is for assisting an animal with PTSD.  (This system has also been shown to be effective with humans.)  Releasing emotional blocks and reducing or eliminating walls around their hearts will bring about huge healing shifts.

~~ As a Certified Multidimensional Healer, I work with healing teams from Source to remove the energy patterns of trauma, repair chakras and other damaged areas, assist the animal’s bodies to rebalance, and bring the animal into a space of harmony, peace, and openness to their new life circumstances.

~~ I may also refer you to other practitioners who offer many other alternative services that will assist the animal, such as acupuncture, chiropractic, Theta Healing, and basic training for dogs and horses.

Having a “plan of action” helps you and the animal know what next steps to take and have a sense that there truly is hope of healing the animal and the entire situation.

Have you recently brought home a new animal or are planning to adopt from a rescue place?

If so, keep in mind that while coming to your home is the best thing for this animal, in some cases you many need to take some extra steps to help the animal integrate and become part of your loving family.

How does ENERGY HEALING help you feel better, relieve pain, and assist humans and animals to heal? This ancient technique of healing has amazing benefits.

Energy Fields surround us.

We all live in overlapping fields of energies.  These fields includes your physical body, your auric field (which consists of 6 additional bodies), electromagnetic fields that emanate from your organs and other body parts, and the energies of everyone and everything around us, including the earth.

Since everything is energy, including your consciousness, you might wonder how healing can ever happen without paying attention to the energy aspects of your bodies.

What Is Energy Healing?

Energy Healing is any healing method which
helps restore and maintain
the energy systems of  your bodies
by working directly with the energy of your bodies.

The term “energy healing” is used  today for what has also been called “hands-on healing”, “spiritual healing”, “psychic healing”, and even “energy medicine.”

In energy healing, a wide variety of techniques can be used.  Whatever techniques are used, they directly address the energetic levels of your bodies.

While tools such as stones and crystals, acupuncture needles, pendulums, singing bowls, and others can be part of a healing session, many practitioners use only their hands and their intention to facilitate a healing.

Clean, pure, love-filled energy (life force, prana, chi, ki) is made available to the bodies, while inappropriate energies are assisted to leave the bodies.

To be healthy and in balance, your energy must be able to flow freely, smoothly, and harmoniously.

What Can Disrupt the Energy of Your Bodies

Infection, injury, toxins, stress,
too much or too little of any substance
are all examples of events than can  disrupt your bodies’ energies.

When you’re sick, it’s because the flow of energies has been disrupted, causing some areas to be jammed up with too much energy while others areas are depleted.  The disruption can come from accidents, infections, emotional traumas, and many other stressful situations.

Several things can happen during an energy healing session to restore the smooth flow of energies.  Here are some common examples.

  • Disorganized and chaotic energy patterns become organized and harmonious.
  • Blocked energy flows are unblocked.
  • Sluggish energy flows are restored to normal speed.
  • Depleted energy areas are assisted to regain a normal, healthy level of energy.
  • Excesses of certain types of energy are reduced to normal.
  • Disconnections between the spirit and body parts are reconnected.
  • Communication breakdowns between body parts are restored.
  • Energy that doesn’t belong is helped to leave the body.
  • Repair the physical body’s etheric blueprint (template).
  • Repair, balance, and harmonize the chakras.

Some examples of energies helped to leave are:

  • viruses, fungus, bacteria.
  • memory patterns of old injuries.
  • memory patterns of weapons from this or past lives.
  • emotions that haven’t been fully expressed.

These are just a few examples of what energy healing can address.

What Do Energy Healers Do?

Energy Facilitators support the body’s natural healing abilities.

Energy Healers facilitate the healing process, which is done by the bodies themselves.  An Energy Healer is more accurately described as an Energy Facilitator.  They do not actually heal the body.  The body must heal itself.

The body, when functioning optimally, knows how to heal itself and how to restore balance.  It wants to be in balance and harmony and good health.

What Are Some Benefits of Energy Healing?

Here are some of the benefits you may experience:

  • Relief from physical/emotional pain and other symptoms.
  • Feeling increased relaxation and calm.
  • A reduction in your stress level.
  • Feeling empowered to take charge of your healing process.
  • A sense that your physical body is stronger or more able to cope with life’s challenges.
  • A sense of well-being, comfort, integration, and wholeness.
  • Feeling more at home in your body.
  • Feeling more energized and more playful.
  • Feeling more balanced and more grounded.
  • Improved appetite; greater control over unwanted habits.
  • Increased interest in life.
  • Increased immune system function.
  • Faster or more complete healing from illness, injuries, or surgery.
  • A feeling of greater alignment with your I Am Presence.
  • An opening to receive more Divine Love.
  • A sense of greater connections with the Divine or with your I Am Presence.
  • A feeling of greater alignment with your spiritual path.

A Basic Principle of Healing: “First, Do No Harm.”

February 13, 2018 by

Hippocates

Greek physician Hippocrates (460 BC – 370 BC) author of the Hippocratic Oath for Doctors.*

The Greek healer, Hippocrates, set the first standards for medicine in the form of the Hippocratic Oath.

A basic principle of that oath was

“First do no harm.”

This ethic is meant to be the guide for whatever intervention a physician or healer uses to assist a patient to heal because …

the actual healing itself is done by the body.

For example, you accidentally cut your finger.  You may clean the wound and put an antiseptic on it, followed by a bandaid.

None of these things actually cause the cut to heal.  That work is done by the physical body itself.

  • Cleaning the wound and using an antiseptic remove bodies that may interfere with the physical body’s ability to repair the cut.
  • A bandaid, or bandage, assists by keeping the cut clean, and may hold the two sides of the cut together, thus making it easier for the body to reconnect the tissues as it repairs the wound.

This is similar to how Energy Healing helps you recover from an illness or an injury.

In Energy Healing, the facilitator’s (healer’s) primary responsibility is to support the body’s natural healing processes.

This is done in a number of ways.

  1. Removing energy blocks that may interfere in the healing process.
  2. Supporting the body energetically so that it has the energy it needs to do the repair work.
  3. Communicating clear intentions to the body so it understands the expectations and goals of the person whose body it is.
  4. Assisting the body to let go of energy patterns that are interfering with the healing process, such as trapped emotions, limiting beliefs, and distorted vibrational patterns.

A healing facilitator communicates with expert energy healers in higher realms who may be able to see or perceive subtle aspects of damage that are outside the third dimensional reality.

Full recovery may require that those damaged area be repaired as well.

A well-known example of this type of situation would be a damaged chakra.

A chakra is a spinning wheel of energy. The most well known chakras are along the spinal column.

There are also many chakras of varying sizes throughout the physical and other energy bodies.  Some chakras are part if the meridian system used in acupuncture and are called “acupuncture points.”

When a chakra is damaged or functioning improperly, a complete healing outcome may be compromised.

Each chakra may be a slightly different size, color and complexity, depending on where it is located in the body and the services it performs.

Chakras are a basic part of the energy anatomy of all conscious beings.

Humans and animals have chakras, and so do plants.

Mother Earth has chakras as well.

Within the physical body of a human or animal, the various organs and glands have chakras specifically designed to keep each one in balance and harmony by providing essential “life force” to that part of the anatomy.

When my cat Violet was diagnosed with early stage renal (kidney) failure, I discovered that one of her kidneys had a chakra that was misaligned and wasn’t able to function properly as a result.

By repairing Violet’s kidney chakra with energy healing, I assisted her kidney to function better.  Using muscle testing, I was able to increase the energetic ability of the kidney to function by more than 50%.

This contributed to Violet feeling more comfortable in her body for a longer time than she might have otherwise.

In all types of energy healing, “First, do no harm” remains an essential ethical principle.

What Makes an Energy Healer Powerful?

June 13, 2016 by

The quality of  her consciousness.

Spirit of Life

A healer is powerful when he or she:

  • Is a clear open channel for healing energies.
  • Has clearly focused intention.
  • Is grounded.
  • Is open to infinite possibilities.
  • Is heart-centered.
  • Is filled with integrity.

Let’s explore these qualities together.

  • A powerful healer is a clear open channel for healing energies.

To be a “clear open channel” requires that a healer continually works on herself to raise her consciousness and maintain her openness to receive and work with the highest frequencies possible.

This means that the person is committed to her own spiritual path and to their service as a healer.  Working on oneself includes, but is not limited to these activities.

  1. Eliminates limited thinking and beliefs that can interfere with bringing through healing energies.
  2. Knows how to manage her own emotions so that they don’t get “dumped” onto the one receiving the healing.
  3. Clears one’s own channels daily so that more energy and a wider variety of frequencies can be channeled for purposes of healing.
  4. Begins each session with a prayer asking to be a “clear channel” and ends each session by clearing herself, the healing space, and everyone in that space.
  • A powerful healer has clearly focused intention.

For a healer, a clear, focused intention requires three things:

  1. Knowing what your own intentions are as a healer.
  2. Asking the one receiving the healing to tell you their intentions
  3. Making sure that your intentions and your client’s intentions are aligned.

Image of hand receiving light.

Aligning your intention as a healer with the intention of your client is very important because:

  • Putting your own intentions over those of the one receiving the healing violates higher law and creates karma for the healer.
  • Setting intentions that do not align with the life path and higher purpose of the one receiving the healing can cause problems for that being down the road.
  • Muddled intention leads to muddled results.

 

  • A powerful healer is grounded.

To heal, you must be grounded, meaning that your consciousness must be present in all parts of your own physical body and connected to the Earth!

The root chakra is actually IN the Earth.

The Root Chakra connects us energetically to the Earth.

  • A healer cannot heal issues in the lower parts of their own body unless she is willing to be fully present with therein.
  • To fully experience your life path, you have to be fully in all your energy bodies.
  • A powerful healer is grounded so she can assist her clients to also become grounded.
  • A powerful healer is Open to Infinite Possibilities.

Being open to infinite possibilities opens the door for miracles.

The Universe contains infinite stars. Created in the Divine Image, you and I are the expression of infinite possibilities.

By setting that intention, the healer gets him/herself out of the way so that healing can happen.

  • A powerful healer is heart centered.

heart magnetic field 2 humans

The size of your heart’s magnetic field is so enormous that you affect everyone with whom you come into contact.

Being consciously heart centered means you are more likely to offer Divine Love and Compassion to your clients, and that is the basis for powerful healing.

  • A powerful healer is filled with integrity.

buddha4

“Integrity” means having coherence within yourself because all your “parts” are fully integrated.

“Integrity” means that you say what you mean, mean what you say, and follow through with your commitments.

“Integrity” means telling yourself the truth about yourself.  “To thine own self be true.”  Only when you do that, can you be honest with others.

“Integrity” is necessary for trust.  If you have integrity, all parts of you trust yourself, and others can trust you, too.  To be a powerful healer, you must be trustworthy.

How to decide if a healer is the best match for you.

When seeking an energy healer, you can determine to what degree someone meets these criteria by asking your body to help you sense or feel whether the person is a good match for you, your animal, or another family member.

  • You can use muscle testing, a pendulum, or just tune into your own body.
  • Think of the healer you are considering contacting.
  • Go through the list of characteristics and ask, in each case, to what degree you feel this person meets the criteria.

This will help you choose the best possible person to assist you.
