Man’s best friends are also man’s best barometer’s of what’s going on with their masters, and the other people or animals in their lives. Existing without resistance to the ocean of energy surrounding them, especially the emotional kind, our pets feel what we feel, experience what we experience and live what we live. They too create with universal laws, co-creating with us bringing to our lives and theirs through the Law of Attraction the experiences we like and dislike. They don’t, however, have our cognitive defense or processing systems. They can easily get overwhelmed and stuck resulting in issues just like the ones we face. But here again they truly are our good friends, because as they can’t cognitively block energy work, they often have the best experiences releasing stuck energies with clearing, their resulting wellbeing seeming miraculous and showing us the way to create our own wellbeing too.
Animals are so sensitive to the energies around them they can hear, see and feel much differently than we do. It’s a fact most often joked about that owners and their pets begin to look alike, act alike and even take on some of the same physical issues. But the concept of equanimity isn’t a mere optical illusion. So often our pets will begin to take on the same issues and challenges that we do, physically, mentally and emotionally. But we can’t see it ourselves because we’re both too busy trying desperately to deal with our challenges and also because most of us would be astounded to learn that we affect our pets in such a direct way. This concept carries with it the joy and love that we truly do desire to give to and receive from our pets. For in knowing how we affect them, we can learn to create what we truly desire. First, however, we must become aware of ourselves and our own patterns, which usually isn’t so difficult.
We’re angry and as a result we have our own allergies, sneezing and “snotty” we go through life attempting to have some kind of joy even though “they” make it so difficult. Instead of realizing we have to clear away the angry energy not just for ourselves but because it’s affecting our cat too, when they sneeze repeatedly and get colds often we think it’s cute that they are “just like me.” Arthritis is just a normal part of everyday life in getting older we think, and so as our animals begin to walk painfully slowly we’re not even aware since we’ve slowed down ourselves. But if we carefully examine the fear we’ve been tensed with making us “rigid” in our ways, we could begin to see the tense rigidity that we also hold throughout our bodies. Amazingly animals will often even have the same kinds of injuries we do!
“I love cats because I enjoy my home;
and little by little, they become its visible soul.”
The effects animals feel from energy disturbances are just as varied as those felt by humans. And given the fact that, just like humans, animals have a wide range of feelings and experiences, what affects one animal one way will affect another in an entirely different way. For example, loud noises could be anything from a non-event to a slight annoyance to a catalyst for PTSD symptoms. It all depends on the pet. The challenges that can be resolved or in some way relieved by energy work are just as varied, and include everything from behavioral issues, mental, emotional and physical challenges too. The list of what can be successfully cleared with energy work is endless...
There is tremendously good news in all of this “new” knowledge. We say “new” because while leading-edge thinkers and whole societies have known about energy and other seemingly cutting-edge concepts, we’re only just now beginning to be at the point where these concepts can become widely accepted. But just as the law of gravity was there long before it was defined by scientists, these laws and concepts were there too. The good news is that now by applying what we know about energy and directing clearings with modalities such as EFT, we can create peaceful living harmony not just for ourselves, but for our pets as well. And we can create that blissful state for all in tandem.
Thanks to new discoveries regarding the subtle energies circulating within both humans and animals, Emotional Freedom Technique has had some extraordinary successes with pets of ALL kinds (dogs, cats, horses, fish, birds, etc.). Fears and behaviors can change and physical ailments can improve (or vanish) and life can become harmonious not just for our pets, but for everyone in the family. These new discoveries are really new confirmations by respected current-day scientists. But they were there all along.
And all along too, we must acknowledge that every living thing is always either seeking growth or death. As a matter of our natural mechanisms, we simply are healing machines! When we cut ourselves we needn’t stop what we are doing and stare at the wound telling ourselves “okay now, gotta start healing!” That’s ridiculous, and we know it. The truth is that no matter what the issue, our systems and our pet’s are simply seeking a state of wellbeing. Energy modalities simply give us the platforms and support which opens the gateways for our own systems to take over and return to a whole state, or as whole is possible given the particular set of circumstances we’re currently experiencing.
The wonderful thing about animals (and small babies for that matter!) is that they can’t get in the way of the process cognitively. As energy work is applied, a dog won’t say either in his mind or out loud, “...what are you doing! that won’t work on me...I’ve got this problem because...” and a cat won’t utter, “...this problem is too big, it’s not going to go away easily!...” They just can’t. All they can do is be fully present with their challenge and be aware that they are being cared for, so they are easily able to be open to energy work simply because they don’t have the conscious or subconscious defenses of rationalization, reasoning and denial that children and adults do. In addition, and possibly one of the most important factors, when a distressed animal is approached from this new perspective, with an open mind and the ability to direct energy toward creating wellbeing, they are usually so grateful for the real connection, the real attention and the real commitment that even just that awareness creates a relaxation from which their natural healing ability begins to go into fast-forward. Finally! they feel, someone is really paying attention to “me” not because I’m cute or destructive, but because I matter...
“Lots of people talk to animals....
Not very many listen, though.... That's the problem.”
Benjamin Hoff, The Tao of Pooh
As the animal begins to allow energy work to be performed, the connection between the animal and the energy worker, whether expert practitioner or novice owner, opens up further and the communication that occurs is often quite astounding and seemingly miraculous. Our intuitive insights grow and we begin to understand the emotional and psychological nature of the problem better than just the rational explanation given by the owner. Real progress is made in what appears to be quick time, as the animal remains centered in their issue and open energetically. It’s like flushing a mildly clogged straight pipe, as opposed to the ones presented by adults that contain curves and all sorts of other barriers, the stuck energy of animals can and often does flush out so incredibly easily.
This process is so incredibly clear to witness that my own EFT mentor often uses animals in her workshops to demonstrate EFT and energy modalities to aid the human attendees in opening their minds to receive the understanding of just how EFT works. It’s great fun to watch an entire room of eager students, overflowing with their own problems (some of them astoundingly difficult) combined with a huge cache of disbelief and denial stand there in awe as the dog who was shaking with fear at being in a crowd only moments ago begins to yawn, stretch and then go about making friends with everyone in the room!
Our pets serve as a way for us to see what can happen when we are free of what we know...for it is what we are sure of, what we know for certain, that often derails us from learning about what truly is...or what could be...
Clearing a pet’s issues can also be an incredible gateway to clearing away our own challenges. As we begin to see changes and relief in our pets, we can both feel our own tension release and too our minds and hearts opening up to a better way, or at the very least another way. We begin to see that all is not written in stone, that we can create options for ourselves. And in so doing, we begin our own releasing process.
"My goal in life is to be as good of a person my dog already thinks I am."
Whether your animal is in distress, your animal is distressing you, or you’d like to begin learning about energy work by working on your pet, using energy modalities with your pets is a wonderfully rewarding experience all around. It’s true that not all issues can be easily or completely resolved, but the one major benefit that comes across in all the cases that I’ve personally worked with has been an incredible deepening of the loving bond between the owner and their pet that results from relaxed tension. We’re both better able to handle whatever the challenge is, as well as becoming more and more open to full recovery. And whether the issue is resolved or not, having that increased loving connection is not just incredibly comforting, that true love is the reward of Living Harmony.
