Many people know that having a pet has tangible health benefits. Pets have not only given us meaningful companionship, but also have been proven to help lower blood pressure.
But is it possible that our dear animal companions have also been healing us in other ways? Could your cat, dog, gerbil or fish be an animal spirit guide or energy healer, or perhaps help you with your emotions directly? Here’s what I know from my experience.
Animals are sensitive to energy. They sense changes in their living environment and also in your energy. That means that they know what you are feeling. They also can sense or read the energy of your thoughts.
How I learned this is through observation of my own cats. When Miso was alive, my husband often pointed out that her health and emotions mirrored my own. I wondered if that was because she was energetically “helping” me by absorbing some of my emotions.
Chowder is my other cat. He has an intuitive sense about when to come and snuggle with me. Recently, I have been feeling unsettled by seeing what’s really going on in the world. I’ve also noticed that Chowder has been laying next to me with his back against mine so that our solar plexus chakras touch.
This has only been happening over the last couple of weeks – same time as I’ve been really contemplating these worldly things and feeling unsettled. As our solar plexus chakras touch, I feel very comforted and calm.
Last night something even more out of character happened. Chowder lay down beside me, and placed his paw right in the center of the palm of my hand. He just left it there.
Now Chowder is one that usually doesn’t like his paws being touched, let alone held. But what really struck me was the incredible amount of heat coming from his paw.
At first I was concerned wondering if he was feeling okay. But then I noticed how his paw felt like it was burning through my hand, and I felt the energy connection. I realized that he was channeling healing energy. It almost felt like an attunement.
All the while he was purring…and after a few minutes, the heat subsided and I moved my hand out from under his paw. Chowder had given me a healing.
I truly believe that animals are naturally in tune with energy and have an open channel to the divine. We discount their intelligence, feelings, and spirituality because of our view of them as “resources”, or less evolved than us “superior” humans.
Here’s an experiment for you to try with your pet. Try to telepathically talk to your pet. Ask a question, and then perceive. Perceiving means:
- – seeing an image that comes to you in your imagination
- – hearing a word or phrase pop in your head, just like a thought (you may even hear it in your own voice)
- – feeling an emotion or physical sensation in your body
- – or just knowing what your pet is trying to tell you
These are all ways that your intuition can help you communicate with your pet. It doesn’t matter if you are talking to a cat, dog or fish. They are all intelligent and are aware of themselves.
Our pets have unconditional love for us. Energy healing is one of the many ways that they care for us.
