Clementine
Clementine

Brittani adores her pony. Brittoni is legally blind and most all of her brain is gone. She has no speech---But-- she has responded to her pony.

She calls her pony "Clementine" and quite a big word for a little girl that cannot say "mama". She stands at the fence in her hard hat and sings the song "oh my darling, oh my darling, oh my darling Clementine" as loud as she can.

The only word distinguishable is Clementine but the tune is and her jumbled jargon is quite distinct.

Clementine listens patiently as Brittoni sings and she tolerated Brittoni shaking the daylights out of the fence so it rattles.

Then she puts her hand through the fence to fell for Clementine and Clementine responds with a lick or nuzzle of her little hand.

Then Brittoni giggles and screeches with delight and off with the song over and over for hours.

Is this not LOVE?

I saw a child who couldn't walk,

Sit on a horse, laugh and talk.

Then ride it through a field of daisies and yet he could not walk unaided.

I saw a child, no legs below, sit on a horse and make it go.

Through woods of green and places he had never been to sit and stare except from a chair.

I saw a child who could only crawl

Mount a horse and sit up tall.

Put it through degrees of paces and laugh at the wonder in our faces.

I saw a child born into strife, take up and hold the reins of life.

And that same child, I heard him say,

THANK YOU FOR SHOWING ME THE WAY.

Healing at a basic level; energy heals from the source of the problem. If there is nothing but energy at our source and illness is a magnified change in this energy, then accessing that energy is a more direct way to heal. Amazing things can happen if a pet or person is open to the energy and lets it in.

**Energy healing can help an animal stay mentally focused so they can learn better for training and competition events. Energy healing can be used for general health maintenance and can give you and your animal the winning edge.

**Energy healing can help animal guardians that are concerned with inappropriate behavior, behavior they want to stop. It is necessary to determine why the particular behavior is happening. Energy healing can assist the animal in understanding what his job really is.

**Energy Healing for End of Life is an area that can truly assist in supporting you animal. Animals sometimes do not understand what is happening at the end of life and can fight to stay with us for our sake, even though it is better for them to move on. This is known as “crossing the rainbow bridge.” It can be very reassuring to the humans to know that their animal has made a very smooth transition.

Animal energy healing cannot replace vet care but can be a great alternative for your pet and can help solve a number of problems from acute pain from an injury, to chronic pain from old age, it can even help the emotional wellbeing of your animal by soothing your animal’s separation anxiety.

Some animal owners will only turn to animal energy healing when it’s their last hope. Humans are highly encouraged to embrace energy healing and holistic pet care for their animals as a valid method of treatment and one that your pet will love.

Animal energy healing can also be done at a distance. The oldest and simplest form of distance healing is the “Prayer”. And there is proof that this healing does work. Touching the animal is not necessary in distant healing which is just as powerful as if the animal was being touched. It is considered one of the most effective types of healing and is easier for them to surrender to because of the natural connection to the earth and universe they have. They do not have to believe it, they will not block the healing or sabotage it but recognize it for how wonderful it is and truly soak it up.

**Some results you can expect from energy healing are faster healing of injuries, happier moods, less stress, no separation anxiety, better movement of joints due to arthritis and increased quality of life for your animal.

Essential Oils and PetsGuide for use of essential oils and your pets

Animals are usually more sensitive to essential oils than humans.

  • To start using essential oils on your pets you should use in moderation and dilute the essential oils heavily.
  • All animals will react differently to the essential oil so you should observe closely how that animal is responding
  • to the essential oil. Use your judgement in the method you are using.
  • Be very careful to not get the essential oil in the animal’s eyes.
  • Avoid using high phenol oils with all animals and do not use at all on cats.
  • Use extra special caution in using essential oils on cats.

The animal's size affects the amount of oil you should use.

  • The smaller animals like cats and small dogs, use 3–5 drops and be sure to dilute 80–90 percent prior to application (for example, for every 1 drop of oil, use 4–5 drops of a diluting agent, such as V-6 vegetable oil complex, coconut oil, jojoba or grapeseed oil.
  • For the larger animals, like large dogs, start with 3–5 drops. Please be sure to dilute to the rate of 1 drop to 4-5 drops of a dilution agent, such as V-6 vegetable oil complex, coconut oil, jojoba or grapeseed oil.
  • For very large animals, like horses and cattle, start with 10 drops. Your dilution rate is still going to be 4-5 drops of a dilution agent, such as V-6 vegetable oil complex, coconut oil, jojoba or grapeseed oil. On the very large animals, with certain oils, there is no dilution necessary but a skin test should be done first.

Application of oils to animals

  • Start by wearing oils around your animals, diffuse in their space, or apply to your hands and let the animal smell them.
  • Try applying an oil to yourself and staying near the animal for several minutes so it can get used to the aroma, to help ease uneasiness and being jittery around the new smell of essential oils.
  • For hoofed animals a great place to apply essential oils is on the spine or flank of the animals.
  • For cats and dogs, apply the essential oil to the paws.
  • Try rubbing oils onto your own hands and then stroking the animal’s fur.
  • For large areas or areas that are hard to reach you can use your diluted blend in a spray bottle. When using a spray bottle you can dilute your oils with water instead of a carrier oil.

Pony Stress
Pony Stress

Usually what is good for a horse owner is also good for the horse. This will make it extremely true in considering the benefits of Reiki for horses. Animal rescue centers are finding it very helpful with the transition of animals brought to their centers. This gentle and non- intrusive therapy for horses can help with:

  • Reducing stress
  • Increase energy levels
  • Provide relief from pain
  • Soothe highly strung, hypersensitive animals
  • Fear and aggression
  • Competition or transportation stress
  • Protection against complications related to surgery, anesthesia, and medication
  • This will never harm an animal so if a horse has experienced abuse or neglect. Helps to release the emotional trauma.
 Reiki should never replace vet care is very useful coordinated with vet care. It will help the horse recover faster, saving anxiety for the animal and the owner. Reiki clears and balances the energy of the chakras, meridians and auras. This can give a horse immediate relief. Reiki helps horses to release unwanted and unneeded negative energy and give them back positive and loving energy. Reiki helps a horse at the end of life to comfort the animal, its owner and anyone that does daily with the animal. raining or abuse. Reiki is a complementary therapy to be used alongside proper veterinary care – never in place of it. Reiki has proven to be beneficial before and after surgery, transportation, and competition, and when offered immediately after an injury. Reiki can reduce swelling, pain, stress, and fear related to an injury. It is known to accelerate healing and reduce infection, as well as complications associated with surgery, anesthesia, and medication.
 

How Equine Reiki Works

Energy should flow through the body of a horse in good health. But a number of factors can stop with this flow. They can be physical injuries, trauma, dietary changes, emotional problems, training issues, fear, numerous illnesses or a combination of any of these problems. The blockage of energy can result in physical, psychological or behavioral problems.

A Reiki practitioner providing Horse Reiki, or Equine Reiki, restores positive energy flow into the animal’s body, correcting imbalance. Horses are particularly sensitive and will rapidly take the healing a practitioner offers through hands-on or even hands-off (remote healing). Usually, the animal will come closer to the practitioner and kly become a willing animal and want more. When animals have had enough they will usually turn away from you as if to say, enough for now.
