The Need for Energy Healing for Our Senior Animal Companions

Amadeus our senior cat

Time after time, I have witnessed how energy healing such as Shamanic Healing, Scalar Waves, or what I call Artemis energy healing has brought solace to senior animals. How with these ancient techniques, animals have lived their later years free from the distraught that is commonly associated with aging and terminal illnesses like cancer.

The dog who was dull and listless gets up and wants to go for a walk. The cat faced with the pain of terminal cancer softens and relaxes with a sigh. Their eyes sparkle again. And all this without any need to travel for a session as energy work is not limited by geographical space and time boundaries.

Here are my favorite reasons for starting my senior cats on Shamanic or Scalar Wave healing:

Relief from Physical Aches and Illnesses

The sunset years come with myriad medical conditions, some of which like cancer can be physically painful. I have seen how Shamanic healing helped my cat, Amadeus live in a state of ease when he was diagnosed with terminal cancer.

Regular energy work creates a serene space for the animals. Animals being much more attuned to the flow of energy ease into this space. Regular sessions can take the edge off from the extremes of pain. I have worked with animals who have got an extra few months of easy living. And what’s more? Scalar Wave, Shamanic or Artemis energy healing can also take off the edge of side-effects such as nausea or stomach sensitivities that often accompany strong medications and treatment.

Increased Mobility

Arthritis and weakness and deterioration of muscle and joint strength often accompanies aging. That dog who was happily running across grassy plains now looks listless and dull. Energy healing can help revitalize them especially with the use of Scalar Wave or Shamanic healing which boosts their energy centers. It is similar to the energetic version of vitamin supplements. A single session has the potential to create a visible change and that dog can come bouncing and wagging and all ready to go for walks.

I was guided to start my cat, Duchess early on Shamanic healing during her senior years. So when the doctor diagnosed arthritis, everyone was surprised because there was no visible sign of discomfort in her. She lived her senior years filled with joy and very little discomfort until her final week.

Comfort in the Midst of Distress

Vet trips can be tiring. Chasing the cat to force all those pills and treatments that your cat wants to have nothing to do adds to the stress the system has to deal with. Scalar Waves, Shamanic and Artemis Energy Healing frees your animal companion from trauma and stress. Regular energy healing sessions keeps them happy and relaxed. And the more joyful they are, the better their systems are equipped to deal with the aging process.

Communicating with You their Messages and Wants

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could hear from your animal companions. What messages do they have for you? What was their soul-purpose in this lifetime? You can do this using telepathic animal communication. The sunset years are a potent time for deepening that bond you share as you start seeing your animal companion in their authentic spiritual form – as a spiritual being. Animals heave a sigh knowing that their voice is finally being heard and they can convey their messages to you.

I have been fortunate and blessed to have been able to listen to my feline friends, know their wants and desires, say goodbye to them when the time came and listen to their powerful guidance for me.

A Break from Compassion Fatigue

Being a caregiver for a senior animal is not easy. With the animals becoming our primary focus, we start forgetting to take care of ourselves – physically and emotionally. All those feelings of helplessness, sadness, guilt, frustration starts piling up ready to explode at the slightest poke. The trouble is that our animal companions are so strongly tuned into our energy field, not only knows how we are feeling, even when we are not fully aware, but also get effected by it. It multiplies their sense of distress because they cannot bear to see us in distress. Regular energy healing and joint sessions creates a space where both human and animal can be in a state of spaciousness and we find the fortitude to deal with our own selves. I had a cat who would insist that I first practice Reiki on myself before I started offering Animal Reiki to her.

This article is dedicated to all the senior cats who taught me that old age can be a state of grace and serenity. We dance to a different drummer then, but to a beat far more ethereal. A drummer guiding us on our way back Home.
