Judi attended GPA-SC Reunion in 2005 and work about the issues she had when she was working with animals. Please note that this from her point of view, but she had a lot of great advice and I thought reprinted it would be great. If you would like to read the whole newsletter, you view it here on our website: Healing Pets
was one thing that kept coming up in 90% of the communications
with these lovely animals, most of which were rescues, was the
physical and emotional issues. I have never worked with so many
animals that were not operating from inside their bodies. I have seen this is many animals before that have suffered physical
and mental abuse, but generally after they have been in rescue
for a while; especially if they have been through several modalities
such as Reiki, T-Touch, Healing Touch and etc. they have returned
and are comfortable in their bodies. Maybe it was because the
majority of the animals I saw over this period were greyhounds
recently off the track that literally had to “run for their
lives” or the animals were so traumatized that they like
children removed themselves from their bodies as a survival mechanism.
I am not sure why, but I also found many of the Bichon that had
come out of puppy mills to be suffering from this same problem.
I realized that it was just not the animals at the shows,
but that many
my regular clients’ animals were suffering
from the same problems. That trauma was trauma and that this
seemed to be an animal’s way of handling that trauma
and over a period of time it becomes progressively worse.
out upset and can become so nervous or “spooky”,
timid or neurotic that they are miserable, trembly or even
since the topic of the September/October issue was to be on
to my travels it is being combined with the
November/December issue, I want to go into detail on how to work
with these beautiful animals and teach each of you that have
rescues some techniques that I have found work wonders on helping
them to learn to not only operate from inside their body’s
but to be comfortable staying in their bodies. It also works
great on animals that are fearful or have abandonment issues.
would like to start with just briefly describing the animal’s
chakra system. This hold’s true for all 4-leggeds no matter
what their size. You will notice that I have placed a dot at
the shoulder. This is the location where some healers believe
there is a key chakra located and always start their connection
with the animal in this location. I do find it is a good non-invasive
and non-threatening location where you may very gently place
your hands to make the first connection. I feel this is a centralized
energy spot, but I do not feel it as a chakra, but more as a
connector point. It is the same on humans, which is why we tend
to place our hands on people’s shoulders when we wish to
connect or comfort them. Animals chakra’s are in about
the same locations as ours except they are much larger and thus
sometimes more difficult to feel as they tend to overlap each
other. As with humans, they do come out the front and the back
although the Brow (third eye) and Solar Plexus chakras are difficult
to locate the secondary site, and the animal’s heart chakra
actually comes out in 3 places rather than just two. Please refer
to diagram below.
I am going to give this to you in a step by step directions
so you can actually print it off or save it for future reference
if you so desire. I am assuming that you are working on your
own animal and know that it is safe and you will not be bitten.
If you are using this technique on an animal that is not yours,
then make sure that either some else is holding the head, or
you have previously established a good rapport with this animal.
1. Breathe deeply and clear mind of all intension and to any
and all attachment
to the outcome. The only thought you need
have in your mind throughout the entire process is “I love
you and I want you to be comfortable in your body.”
Step 2. Rub palms together briskly for a few seconds to get energy
flowing freely and relax hands. Remember the energy flows through
the center of your palms.
Step 3. Lightly lay hands over shoulders and allow them to rest
there. You may feel one hand getting hot and then both getting
equally warm, you may feel as if both hands are being drawn into
the animal’s body and then as if they are actually being
pushed off and you cannot keep them on the body, or you may feel
nothing at all. Do not be concerned about what you feel. Concentrate
only on the statement above and when it feels right (maybe 1-2
minutes or the animal moves); move on to the next step.
Step 4. Place one hand on the heart chakra and one hand on the
solar plexus. This can be at any of the three heart chakra points
or the two solar plexus points. Hold as above.
EXAMPLE: Both hands on both points
One hand on chest (H) and one hand on back (SP)
Step 5. Move the solar plexus hand to the crown and hold.
Step 6. Move heart hand to the root and hold.
Step 7. Now think of the animal’s aura as if it looked
like Cousin It in the Addams Family. Your hands are magnets and
that long hair that grows from the top of the head to the feet
(Cousin IT) is filled with tiny metal shavings. Place both hands
on the top of the animal’s head so your hands are just
touching its nose. Your touch is so light that it is almost undetectable.
Now with your fingers slightly curled allow your hands to slide
down the head, neck, spine, and off the tail and away from the
animal (if the animal is on your lap make sure you go completely
through you) and then gently flick your fingers to remove any
residue (metal shavings) you might have picked up. Repeat this
step 3 times.
Step 8. Place both hands on the top of the animal’s head
so your hands are just touching its nose, with fingers curled,
allow your hands to slide down the head, neck, shoulders
and down each front leg and off the feet making sure you touch
toe and then the floor (or off your lap at least with the
intension of the floor) again clearing the fingers. Repeat
this step 3 times.
Step 9. Place both hands on the top of the animal’s head
so your hands are just touching its nose, with fingers curled,
allow your hands to slide down the head, neck, shoulders,
spine, hips and down each hind leg and off the hind feet making
you touch each toe and then the floor (or off your lap at
least with the intension of the floor) again clearing the fingers. Repeat this step 3 times.
What you are doing is actually pulling the animal back into
the body and grounding the spirit into that body.
Repeat all steps at least once a day for a minimum of two
weeks. You should begin to notice a difference though within
days. Continue for as long as necessary with a booster at
