Dog Chakra healing and alignment is not as out-there as it may sound. Our dog's chakra and nerve systems need attention also! Our canine buddies pick up on the same annoying vibes that we do in our daily lives. From too many people coming and going to phones ringing to our human stress leeching out onto them, our dogs get stressed, too!
We are able to go to doctor and discuss possible treatments and medical options, if needed. Of course, dogs are prescribed anxiety meds, but you may wish to try something gentler before going that route. So what can be done for our dogs anxiety?
One thing you may have considered was Reiki, an ancient holistic healing practice. Here are a few tips for using the ancient practice of Reiki holistic healing to help your dog relax.
Reiki is a form of alternative medicine called energy healing. Reiki practitioners use a technique called palm healing or hands-on healing through which a "universal energy" is said to be transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing. -Wikipedia
This is in no means a Reiki Certification or intended to lessen the viability of the work Reiki Practitioners do, this holistic healing info is shared as a loving exercise you can do with and for your dog. You can even call it your Quiet Time with your dog, whatever works for you.
Pick a time when it is relatively quiet and calm. You may have to pick a free bit of time and work into the calm and relaxed state. Don't let feeling a bit frazzled stop you from this exercise, you'll get there. One more tip, don't worry if someone interrupts you and your dog. You can exhale and think a quick thank you for the time you did have with them and pick it back up when you can.
Our Relax Dog Aromatherapy will be the perfect gentle aid to help you and your dog relax into this time together. Roll some on your hands and gently stroke your dog. You may want to roll the Relax on their belly or inside their ears, if you feel they would like that. Spray the mist on the bedding they are lying on, in the room, and over your dog. If you prefer spritz your hands or a washcloth with Relax and rub them with the. The gentle blend of aromatherapy oils helps relax, calm, soothe and reassure your dog.
First, bathroom breaks for everybody before you start. Next, find a quiet room or spot in your home or outside for the two of you to relax. This spot should be one where you and your dog feel safe, comfortable and able to relax.
Clear your mind of any daily stress, release any images of drunk monkeys twerking and fat squirrels dancing in Lady Gaga shoes. Be as tuned into your dog and their chakra healing as possible. Pet them and allow both of you to relax and slow your pace. Exhale and congratulate yourself on taking this time.
Imagine a door to your heart opening and a pure light beam of love to pour out. Then, imagine a door to your dog's heart opening and a golden or white light beam starts to glow. Watch that light move from your heart to your dog's heart, back and forth in a beautiful circle of unconditional love.
This grounds and deepens the loving connection between you and your dog for this session.
If this feels a bit too much for you, forget the door and the golden light and just think about how much you love your dog. That is always enough.
You're doing great! Allow your hands to hover over your dog's body, not really touching your dog, but floating just above them. Allow all the love you feel for your dog to pour through your heart into your hands, then onto and into your dog. If you feel so moved, you may even say a prayer or affirmation and ask for any extra love to be sent to your dog.
You may feel a bit silly or think you aren't "doing it right" but I promise there is no wrong way to do chakra healing for your dog.
Keep going! Allow this energy flow to continue until your dog lets you know they have had enough for this session or you feel it is time to stop. Your dog may get up and walk away, whine or become restless. Some dogs would soak up the vibes for hours and others are through in under a minute. Begin to end the dog chakra healing session whenever it feels you should, you will know. TIP: If you actually ask yourself, "Am I through?" you are.
To end the dog chakra healing session respectfully, imagine gently closing the door from your heart to your dog's heart and from theirs to yours. Thank your dog for accepting this gift from you and for giving you the energy that they shared. If you wish, take a bit to enjoy being with your dog. Gently ease yourself and your dog back into your day. Allow them time to be quiet or alone if that is what they want to do. Quietly, softly slip back into your day. Give them your undivided attention throughout this process and you will be amazed by how you feel.
Congratulations! You have balanced your dog's chakras and given you and your dog the gift of precious time together.
