I became involved in animal healing through one of my dogs Eskimeer Ero of Bowhinton, known as Baggins. He became very ill and when we rushed him to the vets we were told he had days to live, this was devastating as he was such a lovely young dog. A friend suggested we contact the famous animal healer Charles Siddell.
When we took Baggins to Charles, he said “I cannot save your dog but I can give him a better quality of life” and he did. Baggins lives another 18 months, and you would not have known there was anything wrong with him. When the time came that he rapidly deteriorated I did what we can to help our beloved pets and helped him pass over the rainbow bridge.
This opened my eyes to how much help healing could be, and a couple of years later I attended a course on How to be a Councillor. A group of us on the course wanted to stay in touch and one of the girls had a wide breath of knowledge suggested we meet up monthly to learn something new. I did say I loved courses.
She taught the group a little about healing, when I practised on a friend it had such a profound effect on her I wanted to learn more. I attended a 12 week course to explore healing in more depth at the College of Healing in Malven, this led on to a 2 year diploma course. The diploma included 4 separate 7-10 day, 12 hours a day intensive study breaks with real case studies.
This was 20 years ago and while working extensively with humans I realised my love of animals was taking over. So I know work with animals and their owners, predominantly dogs and horses.
How do I work
I always start by talking to the owner about what is wrong with their pet, also encouraging them to open up about what is happening in their life.I then start to work with the animal, the duration of the healing is dictated by the animals themselves. They remain calm and relaxed whilst they are benefiting from the healing, but become restless and fidgety when they no longer require it.
I then talk to the owner about what we both saw and I felt during the healing, I then ask the owner to sit and allow me to carry out a healing on them too.
This may sound a bit far fetched to some but it works as you can see from my testimonials and blogs.
One of my clients Margaret owns a Connemara Pony and asked me to attend to its front leg at the stables. Whilst kneeling with the animal, I was aware that there were people watching.
After the session they told me that 6 or so swifts had flown into the stable and were circling above myself and the pony. They stayed throughout the healing and flew off as soon as I was finished. The audience said it was almost as if they were drawn to the energy I was giving the pony and drawing on it for their migration.
A healing usually takes between 2-3 sessions to help and I recommend this is followed up by a single 6 monthly MOT session. This enables me to pick up on situations/conditions before they become an issue for the animal and its owner.
