Animals and their Guardians, how Our Energies Intertwine

Animals are highly intelligent, perceptive, thinking and feeling beings. My clients are often surprised by how much their animals know, feel and sense about them, their feelings, worries and fears. They do not even have to be physically with you in order to pick up what you, as their beloved guardian, are feeling. For example, if a guardian decides to go away for a week and worries about their cat, Fluffy, at home with a cat sitter, then Fluffy is going to keep feeling this worry and end up feeling worried herself.

In order for there to be peace and calm in our homes we really need to take ownership of our own feelings; our mental, physical, emotional and spiritual state. If we are feeling stressed or out of balance, we will affect those around us, particularly those most connected to us and those most sensitive to energy. When we work on our own healing and feel a sense of calm within ourselves, this benefits our animals. Our animals are often our biggest teachers and much of what they teach is joy, unconditional love and to be fully present in the moment. Animals love it when we are focused on them, playing a game or telling them how beautiful they are, without our thoughts wandering off to work, grocery lists or other things we need to do.

Of course we must also work with our animals to provide them with the best love, care, enrichment and help when needed. However, if we are working with an anxious cat, Fluffy, and only focus on her anxiety without considering that her guardian is also highly anxious and overworked, then it is unlikely that Fluffy will calm down and find balance until her person does.

We must consider our animals wants, needs and desires, but also our impact on their wellbeing. This week has been filled with animals that have have been particularly connected to their people. It has been an honour to impart their feelings, wisdom and advice to their guardians. There was even a cat in spirit that advised her guardian to please not mask their pain in the right side and to keep their appointment with their doctor. My client confirmed that they had been in a lot of pain and had cancelled the appointment with their specialist, but had recently made a new one and was dreading it. I'm convinced their cat inspired them to book the new appointment and was determined for them to keep it.

When I scan an animals' energy field I sometimes find energy that does not belong to them, they are holding it for someone else. This is common with animals like horses, that we quite literally sit on. I have picked up energy around certain vertebra in horses' spines that have corresponded to injuries that their riders have experienced. My own horse, Jack, used to struggle with his digestive system and every effort I made to support him made little difference. Only after I addressed my own stomach pain and digestive issues did his get better. Now neither of us have any digestive issues.

I have had unexplained heart, liver, digestive and other organ energy come up during a session, when I pick up that this does not belong to the particular animal I ask who in the household has this condition. Often the animal is holding it for another animal or family member. I recently had two dogs from the same family bring up a sore left ear until we realised they had brought it up because one of their dog family member had a sore left ear at that moment that I had not yet connected with. Similarly they can hold strong emotions for their family members such as grief. This often comes up when guardians are grieving for a family member even if the animal had never met the person that had passed on.

I had the pleasure of seeing a young, yet wise and deeply feeling horse this week. She spoke of everyday things then gave me the most overwhelming wave of emotions, concern for her person, love and a deep worry and compassion for her pain. She gave me the feeling of where the pain was and her guardian confirmed it was hers. Her guardian reminded me that I usually pick up unbalanced energy for this area on her horse and then I remembered that the horse consistently selected remedies to balance it. Again this happened in this week's session. I grew concerned for the horse, I was worried about her taking on this energy and asked her to please make sure she was grounding this energy through her feet and not letting it fester in her body. I was immediately met with a "piss off" from her and to mind my place. This is not a rude horse, she was incredibly clear and I had overstepped. She explained that she and her guardian were contracted to hold each others energies until they both were healed. I cried from the depth, purity, love and deep soul connection this horse shares with her person. I thanked her for the lesson and apologised. When I apologised again later she was annoyed with me for the repetition! I hope in time they both feel so much better.

Obviously there are many things outside our control, but as long as we keep working towards our own balance, peace, healing and follow our joy then we will have a positive impact on our animals. Even more than that when we radiate peace, joy, harmony and love it is a gift to those in our home, those in our communities and actually the whole of nature, because we are also a part of nature. To put it simply being in this state is how we change not only the energy in our own home, but its our contribution to the world.

Meditation for peace in the home:

Sit in a comfortable position, in a quiet space where you will remain undisturbed.

Take a few deep breaths, in through your nose and out through your mouth.

Imagine beautiful roots extending down from the base of your spine and they gently move down through the layers of the earth until you reach a depth that feels right for you. Feel the beautiful grounding energy of the earth flow gently up these roots until it enters your body. Feel this grounding energy flow throughout your entire body.

Now feel your crown chakra gently opening and feel a column of white light gently shining down from the sky, from the heavens, from source through the ceiling down through your crown. Feel this beautiful white light energy enter your body as it connects you to all that is.

Feel your heart chakra gently opening and imagine beaming white light to every area of your body, starting at your toes, working your way up until you feel a radiant sense of peace.

Now extend this beautiful peaceful, loving white light to the room you are in. Then the next rooms and the next until you radiate this peace throughout your entire home.

Now feel your animals around you and send them each light, feel the calm, loving energy flow through you to your animals.

When it feels right, bring yourself back to the present moment, back to the room with a sense of trust that this feeling of loving peace with be with you, your animals and your home.

You can repeat this mediation as often as is necessary. Its important to trust and let the light flow.
