Animals: The Natural Healers
Animals are spiritual beings like us
who have amazing love and healing abilities. Animals can naturally heal
humans not just psychologically but also physically through touch and
you ever thought of your pet
as an animal doctor? They often know when something is wrong with you
then provide love and animal healing. Animals are very smart healers
indeed, so let's take a look at some of the talents of these natural
Animals are amazing natural healers of many diseases that affect
and I'm not just talking about the company they provide and lack of
isolation that many pet owners enjoy. The presence of a pet can lower
anxiety, stress and actually lower blood pressure whilst rewarding the
owner with love. Our animals are often our best friend, and having them
around constantly helps us to feel relaxed and happy. Our animals are
also hilarious little
beings with a life all their own.
Hopefully we repay them by giving them hugs every day (many
times a day) and never take them for granted or ignore them. I've seen
pets that shy away from their owners but stick by me so often I almost
cease to notice them - they will sit right in front of me. Our pets
love us no matter how we treat them but they are affectionate so will
expect to have a relationship with you every
day, not just sometimes. We
need to remember to love them in return as our responsibility for
Cats love to sit on humans, and I knew a cat who would lie on my back
in a very healing fashion. Cats offer us healing when they feel we need
it or are open to it, and who knows, maybe it is healing for them too.
Many cats will sit happily in your lap for extended periods, perhaps
nuzzling you, purring,
and giving you affection. Stay still and enjoy it.
They get so warm and comfortable you won't want to shake them off.
The sound of the cat's purr has been proven to be physically healing
and is able to increase the healing rates of broken bones. This energy
in the form of sound waves vibrates at a frequency that can heal many
physical problems faster than normal - it promotes healing. Imagine
purring energy does to your entire body to keep you well. Cats can also
save us from fires if we refuse to wake, by nuzzling us. They can be
little miracle workers.
Dogs Are Your Best Friend
Have you ever looked into a dog's eyes and seen nothing but adoration? They stare fixedly with love.
Dogs can love us totally and all they want in return is a pat or
two, or a few minutes of play. Dogs are very healing and can lower
heart rate and blood pressure, and also release the bonding hormone
oxytocin in humans.
Therapy dogs are used in hospitals, nursing homes
and prisons. We know we are onto a good things with dogs, They can also
help autistic children sometimes to become more involved, connected or
active. Quite remarkably, some dogs can smell when a human has cancer
and can be taught to indicate this. I couldn't think of anything more
helpful than finding that cancer early on. We need to get to know our
dogs personalities and if they seem to be telling us something, listen,
because you just never know.
Birds Sing Sweetly
There is something reassuring about birds, their sweet company and the
songs they sing. Imagine a world without birds; they are so prevalent
that we hardly notice them but see them gone and the world would be a
strangely quiet place. From when
we wake up to when the sun goes down, they are singing in sweet
tones that light up the day. Birds are musical - music for free, and
their lilting chirps are healing.
Pet birds provide company even though they don't intend to; they simply
live their own lives. Backyard song is comforting. When we are
traumatised and reduced to thinking quietly, going through our
thoughts, there's always birdsong. It's rare to be able to travel
anywhere without finding it; it comes through our windows. Just knowing that
birds are singing happily can make us feel better. It's so powerful in its simplicity. Looking at their bright colours and quick
movements you could be forgiven for thinking they're created just for
humans to enjoy. Their innocent natures are a joy.
Horses Are Loyal Friends
Even horses are amazing animals who can help to heal people in all
kinds of strife. The horse and pony are steady animals, sure and strong
who often like human company and allow us to ride them. Equine Therapy
is a tool we can use to bypass many emotional injuries.
Simply greeting a horse and being in its company can be powerful and
relax us immediately, but forming a bond with the horse can be amazing.
Horses take a great interest in us, even if just in observation, since
they are very aware and sensitive. Horses speak in a silent manner with
their bodies (ears, tails, legs, etc.) They can read humans by our own
body language and display compassion and acceptance. Equine therapy can
be used with many groups from veterans to prison inmates and autistic
people, all of who show large improvements from being around their
Even Fish Are Healing
Ever gone up to a beautiful fish tank to look at the elegant,
fish swim this way or that? We are drawn to them because they are
healing, whether its their gentle movements, their colours or even
watching them watching us. People who have fish as pets may form a bond
with them, and these fish can even pass away if their owner is away.
It's comforting to know they are always there in their tank and as
always, we may confide in any of our animals and they will never say a
word to another.
For true healing to occur, we must be open
to receiving the
animal's energy and their loving intentions. Those who are closed down may not be aided despite a
pet's best help, and some owners ignore their pets not realising the
wealth of experience their animal has to offer. In a sense, we allow
animals to allow us to heal ourself in many cases. There is always some
improvement to be had with animals as long as we are open to loving
