Energy healing for animals

The concept that animals experience emotions similar to humans is not news to anyone who has ever owned a beloved pet. There has long been ample evidence animals are emotional beings, dating back to Charles Darwin’s 1872 book, “The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals.”

Animals of all shapes and sizes, domesticated and wild, have feelings that we can easily recognize, just as Darwin documented almost 150 years ago. Anyone who has ever loved an animal knows that they establish emotional bonds with each other and with people.

Since animals have feelings, it makes sense that they also experience trapped emotions, and can benefit from energy healing modalities such as the Body Code and the Emotion Code. Just like people, trapped emotions and energetic imbalances can affect a pet’s health and happiness. These issues can cause animals to behave in negative ways, due to the emotional or physical discomfort they are feeling. Many people are eager to learn how they can help their pets and other animals they encounter, such as injured wildlife undergoing physical rehab, to recover from emotional trauma.

Energetic problems in pets often stem from past traumatic experiences that leave residual energies in their bodies. The goal of practicing energy healing on pets is to balance the energy levels in their bodies, returning them to their optimum states, so that they can heal themselves. Many energy healing techniques that benefit humans can easily be translated into use on pets!

7 Ways to Help your Pet with Energy Healing

Sometimes it can be difficult to connect and communicate on a deeper, more meaningful level with your pet. Fortunately, with these 7 tips, you can develop a better understanding of your pet and deepen your mind-body connection. Pets can benefit from a range of different energetic practices. 

How to use energy healing with my pet?

Consider trying out a few energy healing methods on your pet, to see what works well for you and your animal.

1. Grounding practices

Recommended for humans as well, grounding practices involve touching the ground and electrically reconnecting to the earth. When we spend a lot of time indoors in man-made spaces, we can start to lose connection to the energy of the earth, and that’s true for our pets too. All you need to do for this energetic practice is to make sure that your pet spends time outdoors with its paws on the ground.

2. Meditation with your pet

Pets are often sensitive to their owner’s energy, so spending time with your pet while calming and quieting yourself can be a powerful way to help your animal balance its own energy. Meditation can help you and your pet feel connected, by spending quality time together. Your calm, balanced state during meditation may help your pet feel safe and build trust in you. Meditation with your pet can also reduce their stress levels, especially for anxious animals.

3. Keep a pet gratitude journal

Keeping a gratitude journal, in general, is a good way to feel more appreciative and grateful for the things in your life. By making a pet gratitude journal, not only will you develop a deeper sense of thankfulness for your pet, but you’ll also be able to notice particular attributes and qualities of your pet that you may not otherwise recognize. Make a point of writing down two or three things you’re grateful about your pet each night.

4. Snuggle up with your pet

If your pet is comfortable with physical affection, make a point of snuggling with them on a regular basis. Even if you don’t allow pets on the bed, consider designating a snuggle couch or guest bedroom where you and your pet can spend quality time together. Petting your dog, rubbing under your cat’s chin, or scratching your bird’s back are all great ways to connect and let your pet know you love them!

5. Spend quality time outdoors

Being in nature with your pet is a wonderful way to spend quality time together and connect on a deeper level. Go for a hike, a nature walk, or a camping trip, and take time to sit with your pet. Try to observe what they’re observing, hear what they are hearing, and feel what they are feeling. Relax together and meditate in the quietness, reflecting on the connection you have or wish to have with your pet.

6. Trust, forgive, and forget

First and foremost, trust your pet. While trusting your dog not to get into the trash when it’s left out or your horse not to wander through an open gate isn’t probable, simply trusting them to love you and be a part of your soul is something pets can sense. Know they’ll be there for you in times of need or emergency. When they do disappoint you, do something that makes you angry, or break your trust, remember to love unconditionally, forgive them for their actions or mistakes, and move forward with love.

7. Help your pet heal from emotional pain with energy healing

Animals (and people) can behave in negative or unhealthy ways because they’re hurting inside. Many of these emotional pains come from upsetting or traumatic experiences in their past, and the energy of that pain can still be trapped in their physical bodies. Energy healing techniques such as the Emotion Code and the Body Code create the opportunity to release these trapped energies on the spot, and many of these techniques can be used on your pet as well. Engaging in these healing practices with your pet can enable both of you to connect on a deeper level and heal in surprising ways.

Using these connective and energy healing techniques, you’ll be able to identify with your pet in a way that deepens your spiritual, mental, and physical connection.

How Can Energy Healing Help My Pet?

  • Energy healing can help stressed pets by releasing the energy that’s causing anxiousness. 
  • Coping with injury or recovery from surgeries can be challenging for pets since they usually don’t understand why they’re experiencing discomfort. Energy healing can help to calm and relax your pet, which in turn allows their bodies to heal faster.
  • End-of-life care can be greatly improved with energy healing for pets, as well as owners! By providing relief from physical and mental distress, both humans and their beloved pets can spend their final moments enjoying each other’s company.
  • Energy healing provides a wonderful way for owners and pets to connect and bond more deeply with one another.

Animal Whispering with The Emotion Code and Body Code

Remember the 1998 Robert Redford film The Horse Whisperer? It’s about a girl and her horse who are both injured in a riding accident. The girl’s mother takes them to a legendary “horse whisperer” played by Redford who heals the horse after uncovering the cause of its trauma.

Readers of Dr. Brad’s book, “The Emotion Code,” know that he is something of a horse whisperer himself. Born and raised in Montana, he had two horses while he was growing up. In the book he recounts how his wife Jean urged him to use the Emotion Code to heal a horse named Ranger that was suffering from kidney problems.

“While I loved my horses and took good care of them, like most people, I never imagined that they might suffer from trapped emotions,” he recounts. “Jean looked at me calmly and repeated, ’Just test and see.’ Jean is very intuitive, and she was probably sensing the truth about what was going on with Ranger.”

If you’ve read the book, you know the rest of the story. Dr. Brad diagnosed the horse had the trapped emotion of “conflict” from competing with a new horse that had been brought into his life. With Jean touching Ranger and acting as a surrogate, Dr. Brad was able to identify and release the trapped emotion, resulting in the horse recovering.

In another case, Dr. Brad documented how a small dog that was previously fearless and loved to explore became stricken with fear, trembling all the time, after he was attacked by a coyote. This shows clearly that animals struggle with trapped emotions.

“The fact that pets experience emotions means that they also can experience problems caused by unresolved negative emotions,” writes Maureen Kidd, a certified Emotion Code and Body Code practitioner in Massachusetts. “While science may debate the ability of animals to remember past experiences, there is no doubt that pets have an emotional memory that can affect their health and behavior.”

Since the publication of The Emotion Code and the creation of The Body Code, many practitioners have successfully used these methods to help both pets and wild animals heal from emotional trauma, often in a single session.

Benefits of pet ownership

Pets offer more than just companionship to their humans. Studies have shown that having a pet can offer a range of benefits to health and happiness. Animals are a great source of companionship and can help owners feel less lonely and more loved. Owning an animal typically means more opportunities to exercise, move your body, and get outdoors. Regular walking and playing with our pets can decrease blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and more.

Scheduling regular visits to your veterinarian will help ensure that your pet’s physical needs are met. Follow through with the vet’s advice and both you and your pet will benefit. The companionship and presence of pets give you so much. Give back by addressing your pet’s emotional needs through energy for pets too!

Owning a pet is one of the most rewarding experiences we have as humans. Aside from having the companionship of pets, there are several other health and wellness benefits to being a pet owner. Some of the best advantages of having a pet include:

  • Improved cardiovascular health
  • More physical activity
  • Stronger immune system
  • More empathy toward others
  • Higher levels of self-esteem and a more positive outlook on life
  • Fewer feelings of loneliness, restlessness, despair, and boredom
  • Enhanced social connectedness and social skills
  • Heightened caregiving abilities
