Healing animals - this can be read two ways, and both are equally important to a person who is drawn to animals, as a part of their path and spiritual development. We meet animals who have the power to give us healing, and these become healing animals for us; and then there comes a time when we want to give back, in fact are now healed enough to have something to give again, and at that point, many are drawn to healing animals themselves.
Animals are the link between us human beings, who have in many ways become painfully detached from the great creative order by our ways and mistakes, and the thinking and doing we do, and all the rest of the Universe.
Animals can become the messenger and pathway back to nature, back to the entire world that exists outside of people doings, and where God awaits, if you want to put it like that.
The very purity of animals who do not lie, steal, plot or doubt themselves or others is an antidote, a mirror to where we human beings are going wrong. The animals are a cure and pathway out of loneliness and disconnection; they give us much needed energy and very importantly, give us somewhere to put our energy, the love we have to give, the care taking and compassion which every person has but no-one asks them for it, and if they offer it to other human beings, it is usually rejected.
So in this very simple, structural way of pure giving and receiving energy exchanges, animals provide us with a bitterly needed service to get some flow back into our energy systems that have become encapsulated as we try and keep away from our human neighbours, have become suspicious of strangers and walk through our cities with our heads down and our energy systems pulled in tight.
At an EmoTrance energy healing training, I once did an exercise where I asked people to tune into the energy system of an animal of their choice, an ancient shamanic practice that can be made real right here and now and is so very educational.
Some chose to be birds; some wanted to be dolphins; one wanted to be an elephant, and quite a few a big cat like a lion or a tiger.
But all and every single one of the participants reported how their energy system had EXPANDED many, many times; how they felt so much bigger, greater and so much more connected to everything around them because of that.
Animals don't hold back, don't pull their energy system in like someone wraps a raggedy blanket around themselves in a hailstorm as people do; they are LIFE GIVERS of energy that we people need so deeply, so profoundly and so desperately.
Animals are therefore, very HEALING in the true sense of the word.
We can open ourselves to the healing energies of animals even if we are in a position where we can't interact daily with an elephant, an eagle, a lion or a tiger, or even have a pet cat or a pet dog which brings these energies into our lives.
As the people at the EmoTrance training showed, all you have to do is to tune into the powerfields of an animal species and call that energy into you, evoke it, run it through your own body and you can have healing animal energies wherever you are, even when lying in a hospital bed, and simply by evoking the power of an orca, or the ancient steady wisdom of a tortoise, or the elegance of a sea lion that slides soundlessly through cold, rich, nourishing waters.
But as great as healing servants animals are to humanity, they also suffer greatly for it.
Animals get jarred out of their natural environments when they come to stay with people, and that causes much trouble on all levels, and so our animals too, are in need of healing.
Whether they need protecting from harmful environments, energy forms, unsuitable foods and unsuitable emanations, or whether they are already sick and now really need healing, when we start to consider how we can heal our animal friends, we engage in something very magical, and a whole journey begins.
But still, and that is the remarkable fact, as we step up and become those who engage in animal healing, it is still ourselves who benefit the most, who learn the most, and who grow the most.
When we reach inside and raise healing intentions, healing energies, heartfelt compassion, and let these powerful energy forms flow through us in order to give them to an animal that needs this help and healing, of course, this changes US the most of all.
In my view, to have become the HEALER yourself is the final step in any healing process; it is the sign and seal that you are indeed healed now, even if you don't feel like it, even if you don't know it, and even if you haven't gotten your head around it yet.
In even aiming towards becoming a healer, and giving now instead of only taking all the time, we take a MASSIVE step of evolution in the direction of a fully functional, powerful human being that can protect, and heal the animals in their environment, and further out, the animals that they become aware of on the wider levels.
The suffering of animals because of human intervention across time and space is vast, and it would be impossible for a person in the Hard to make any impact on that that would be noticeable.
In the energy realms however, where all time is one, and a single thought can move a mountain, we can do SO MUCH, and we can make wonderful changes simply by the power of intention which is powered by our heartfelt desire to bring healing and protection to the animals - to a whole species, to all animals past, present and future, or just a single individual who has suffered at the hands of man.
And so here we are - animals are all and truly, healing animals; whether they are the givers of healers, or the receivers of healing, animals will always heal you, either way.
With my deepest gratitude to the animal kingdom and all its representatives, and my very best blessings to you,
Dr Silvia Hartmann
