Helping Your Animals with Healing Energy

Animals and Nature Can Teach Life-Changing Energy Work

Kim Shotola
March – April 2023 • Vol 4, No 3

We all have this amazing life force inside of us that can help animals and people. Because we all are matter, and matter is energy, methods that utilize energy have the ability to heal on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level. For animals, energy work has the ability to:

  • Release and heal emotions from traumatic situations such as abuse, neglect, accident, or injury.
  • Resolve behavioral issues by providing relaxation and reducing stress and anxiety.
  • Heal illness and injuries more quickly.
  • Require less anesthesia, so animals recover more easily from sedation.
  • Bring comfort and peace to you and your pet when they cross the rainbow bridge.
  • Open the doorway to animal communication. (Energy work can deepen your heart and soul connection.)

It is only natural to place your hand over an injured area of your body. Most people have no idea why they have this innate response. Here’s how you can offer basic healing energy to your pet:

  1. Sit on the floor (or furniture if needed) about 5–10 feet from your pet. It is best to start off with some distance as some animals are sensitive to energy.
  2. Set your intention to send healing energy to your pet for their greatest good, that your pet should only take whatever amount of energy they want to, and what they don’t use goes where it’s needed in the universe.
  3. Tap the center of your chest and your collarbone with your fingertips to awaken the energy. Rub your palms together.
  4. Let your arms hang naturally. Place your hands next to one another with your palms angled towards your pet. Allow energy to flow from your hands.
  5. If your pet moves away, stay where you are and send energy from the greater distance. In time, they will probably seek the energy and want to be close. It is never necessary to touch them, though. Let your animal show you how much energy they desire.

I taught Reiki and other energy work for many years. I was then guided by the animals and St. Francis of Assisi to create an energy-work program they wanted people to learn called Sacred Animal Spirit Alchemy (SASA.) It took two, patient years to receive the curriculum from them, and since early 2016, we have taught SASA to students from all over the world. SASA is energy in its purest, natural form. The animals and nature help you to:

  • Strengthen your connection with them by raising your frequency.
  • Receive their ancient wisdom and knowledge.
  • Become in tune with them by enhancing your innate abilities.
  • Nurture and direct the sacred energy within yourself.
  • Offer healing for animals, people, and situations based on their guidance.

Energy work helps you to become more grounded and in tune with yourself, others and animals. Know that you are a beacon of light and love, connected to the animals and nature. SASA helps to raise your spiritual awareness so that you may impact the universe and bring joy and healing to all living things. The animals and nature come together to teach you profound and life-changing energy work.

The Ultimate Healer

Bethel Wagner
November – December 2022 • Vol 4, No 1

Scientists estimate that stress is at the root of 80–90% of all diseases. I would argue that stress is involved with 100% of diseases because stress is anything that moves the body out of its balanced state of homeostasis. When we are ill, we are out of balance by definition!

I would also submit that all stress is a response to fear or danger, whether physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. It only makes sense that the opposite of stress and fear is the antidote to all imbalance, illness, and disease. The obvious question is, “What is the opposite of fear and stress?”

The opposite of fear is love, especially the infinite, unconditional love of God, the Creator of all that is. I believe this love is the light and life-giving energy that created and sustains all things. It is the love that brought every one of us into being, and it is the love that makes us whole.

Our Hand Gestures Are Sacred—

Let’s Use Them More Consciously!

David Christopher Lewis
November – December 2022 • Vol 4, No 1

Our hands are sacred extensions of our hearts when we are involved in any loving activity that serves life and others. Consider the lesser-known chakras within our hands that are activated whenever we engage them in sacred work. Beautiful energies are emitted from them, which are a blessing and a boon. Our consciousness is extended through our arms, hands and fingers, which expand the reach of our heart chakra. They are close to the level of our heart chakra, so its energy can move through our arms, hands and fingers to help heal and benefit life.

Consider all the gestures that we make and the things that we do with our hands. We can choose to make these gestures much more consciously and often more slowly, as if engaging in Tai Chi or Qi Gong movements. What we put our attention upon, we become. We may engage with the Eternal Now by using our hands more reverently and holily, with honor, respect and conscious attention, because we are magnifying everything with the energies that flow through them.

What’s a Breathwork Seminar

Most of Us Breathe at Only 10–15% of Full Capacity!

Denis Ouellette
May – June 2022 • Vol 3, No 121

Breathing isn’t work—it’s automatic—right? So, why attend a Breathwork Seminar? This seminar focuses on the most important, yet most neglected, activity you do to provide yourself with life and vitality! At the Integral Breathwork Seminars, we measure, assess, and work on improving your breathing function first. Then we lie down for a breathwork session that will likely be one of the most life-changing experiences of your life, so far!
After the breathwork session, it’s hard to describe how you feel, but some have tried. Here are some actual words that participants have used:

Happy… Relieved… Alive & free… Expanded… I feel like myself again!… Peaceful… Warm & tingly… Strong… Connected to life… Radiant… Aerated!… Drained & refilled… Comfortable… Effervescent… Clearer… More present… Phenomenal!

Mother Earth’s Inherent Wisdom

Near Downtown Livingston, MT

David Christopher Lewis
November – December 2021 • Vol 3, No 118

It is surely an interesting time to be alive and to experience the changes that are occurring across our planet! Even with government mandates initiated on a massive scale to limit our personal health choices—seemingly for the common welfare of all citizens—more information is available than ever before to awaken us to new possibilities for our optimal spiritual, as well as physical, emotional, and mental well-being. The greater the governmental, medical, or media establishment’s measures to control our options, the greater the push-back from concerned and enlightened citizens, who have often been on the forefront of offering new, nature-based wellness modalities that utilize Mother Earth’s inherent wisdom.

With a team of Aquarian visionaries, I opened The Alchemy Exchange store in Livingston, Montana in 2013. We offer numerous wellness products, many of which are infused with frequencies that are beneficial to our inner and outer health and wholeness. I’d like to highlight a few of these products that my wife and I personally use in our home or that others who I know have felt tangible benefits when using them. For the holidays, you may want to “gift yourself” or a loved one with something from our store that resonates with you.
