Crystal Chakra Healing for Animals

It has recently been discussed whether animals have chakras. Yes, everything from ants upward on the evolutionary scale has seven chakras. This fact may be linked to the segmentation of the body (clearly seen in insects) and Hock’s genes (on human chromosome 12) which act as master switches, controlling the activity of genes and how they interact with each other. Very early in the development of the fetus, they help the identical cells formed during  its early growth to differentiate and form the various segments of the body and later the specific organs, limbs, et, residing in each region of the adult body. As this process of development is essentially the same for almost all animals, it is logical to assume that animals’ energy  systems are  also fundamentally the same, developing along the same segmented  path. Both experience and many others’ experience of healing domestic and farm animals bear this out.

Working with dogs over the years there has been found that crystals have very similar effects on them as on any human subject. You can apply crystal chakra healing to pets and livestock yourself, but you will need some understanding of your pets or you can simply dowse crystals with your pendulum. Attach the selected crystals to collars, place them in water bowls or beds, and put them in or tie them to cages.

However you choose to work with crystals learning to control the flow of life-force energy allows you to make positive alternations to your health and lifestyle. The Complete Guide to Crystal Chakra Healing is a handbook to health, containing many techniques for working with crystals on the chakras, aura, and meridians of the body’s energy system. You can use it to improve the quality of your life and your pets’, healing mind, body and spirit.

The Subtle Body and Chakras

Originating in ancient India, and adopted by many alternative healing systems (including crystal healing), in the concept of the subtle body, which shares many of the principles of the aura. Linked to, but transcending the physical body, the subtle body is a scientifically undetectable network of channels (nadis), through which flows life-energy (prana). Our physical mental and spiritual well-being depends on prana flowing smoothly to all parts of the subtle body. If flow becomes sluggish, owing to a congested channel, or, on the other hand, too vigorous, then the likely result is physical illness or mental or spiritual unease. Identifying and correcting inappropriate energy patterns helps the body to regain balance, release stress and repair damage.

We can optimize the flow of prana by influencing the main receptors and distributors of life-energy in the subtle body, which are known as chakras (from the Sanskrit, “wheel”). The seven principal chakras are located in a line running down the centre of the body from just above the top of the head to the base of the spine. Each of these chakras governs certain physical, mental and spiritual aspects of our being and when functioning well, each chakra is believed to vibrate at the frequency of one of the colours of the rainbow spectrum. A malfunction in one chakra affects all the others, so it is important that the whole system is in balance.

Balancing chakras is at the heart of crystal healing. We can use crystals to “feed” each chakra with its main energetic colour. At the simplest level, placing one stone of the appropriate colour on each chakra for a minute will help to balance the whole system. This is by no means the only way to work with crystals and chakras, but it will be helpful in most cases.

Energy Ebb and Flow

The chakras are the area of the highest density of energy and therefore the easiest places to exchange energy with the outside world. These are the places through which we control the flow of our energy, both internally and externally. To those people who can see energy, the chakras look like spinning balls or wheels  of light–hence the name which comes from a Sanskrit word meaning wheel or circle.

Most Eastern tradition describe a chakra system consisting of seven major chakras, with each one associated with an area of the body. The chakras create a pathway of spinning energy hot spots along the axis of the body.

Chakras go in and out of balance and alignment naturally, fluctuating with everyday highs and lows. The little stresses of life, minor illnesses, emotions, and even your thoughts can change the equilibrium of your chakra system. Your energy, and therefore your chakras are influenced by everything you do. When you are feeling anxious or unwell, or are not following your path in life, you chakras, may shift way out of alignment and if left untreated, take a long time to realign.

Chakras: Energy Hot Spots

Imagine energy flowing through pathways within the body, a little like blood flows through arteries and veins. Where these energy pathways cross each other, there is a concentration of power–an energy hot spot. And where many of the energy pathways cross each other, there is a major energy hot spot. The energy pathways are known as meridians (or, in Indian tradition, nadis) and the energy hot spots as chakras.

Locating the Chakras:

Crown: Top of head

Brow: Center of forehead, above eyebrows (also known as the third eye)

Throat: Center of throat

Heart: Center of chest

Ask for Spiritual Guidance

Ask for Spiritual Guidance

 
Some people believe that we each have a number of spirit guides – angelic beings from the spiritual realm – to whom we can turn for guidance. To contact your spirit guides, address them directly, asking your question aloud, in your head, or in writing – whichever feels most natural. Remain open to the answer- it may come at any time, whether spontaneously, out of a chance conversation, or perhaps revealing itself in a book you happen to pick up.

 

Crystals and Color

Qualities like chemical make-up structure, shape, hardness and lustre focus the energies of crystals in certain ways, but colour is the key to how a crystal heals.

We appreciate colour as an adornment, forgetting that it represents a real force – the level of energy in light. This energy stimulates the brain, altering the way we think and feel as well as our physical well-being. Our reaction to colour is instinctive and cannot be controlled. But if we learn the effects of each colour, we will begin to understand why we are drawn to some stones more than others, which will help us to choose the right crystal for every situation.

Many crystals appear in more than one colour. This is because some samples may contain a few extra atoms of an uncharacteristic element that slightly distorts the internal lattice and changes the colour we perceive.

Gem experts discover the true colour of a crystal by a streak test. This involves scraping the crystal across an unglazed ceramic tile to leave a fine dust of particles, revealing the crystal’s underlying colour. The streaks of smoky quartz, violet amethyst, yellow citrine, rose quartz and green aventurine, for example are all grey-white – exactly the same as for clear quartz.

Basic colour qualities

Black – grounding
Brown – enabling
Red –  energizing
Orange – releasing
Yellow – organizing
Green – balancing
Blue – communicating
Indigo (deep blue) – cooling
Violet – integrating
Pink – accepting
White – cleansing
Clear – clarifying

The Throat Chakra

Your Throat Chakra – What Does it Need?

 
Adapted from The Triple Goddess Tarot, by Isha Lerner (Bear & Company, 2002).

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless. – Mother Teresa

The throat chakra is a transmitter of truth, freedom, and clarity. It is located in the throat and neck region of the body and extends upward to include the lower region of the brain or cortex. This area of the physical body holds the communication center, and the gateway to inner and outer worlds. What does your Throat Chakra need so you can fully express who you are?

Singing, chanting, acting, and toning are all activities that vibrate from the Throat Chakra. Holding tension in the Throat Chakra is often due to lack of support in the early years regarding self-expression and freedom of speech. With a healed and healthy Throat Chakra, one’s words are kind, thoughtful, clear, and truthful. The voice is strong and alive with many tones of expression. Usually there is ease with writing, speaking, and sharing thoughts with others. A healthy Throat Chakra cannot sustain lies, coercion, or manipulation.

Attributes of the Throat Chakra:
Function: Communication, creativity, and connection
Color: Blue
Musical Note: A
Healing Flower: Morning glory
Animal Totems: Hawk, whale, and hummingbird
Foods: Fruits
Herb: Frankincense
Gemstone: Turquoise

Through the Throat Chakra one may speak long-held truths of past hurts and, in the process, find much inner peace and a sense of personal freedom. In this way, the throat is a gateway between the mind and body.

Affirmations:
I am the messenger.
I speak the sweet whispers of the heart.
I sing my song.
I speak my truth with clarity and courage.
I am the essence of sound vibration.

The Crown chakra is situated at the top of the head. This chakra governs part of the spinal cord, the stem of the brain, pain centre of the brain and part of the nerves. When people become sick and suffer a lot of pain that they cannot handle, it is because the energy flow is blocked to this chakra. . . A lot of people are able to control their pain fresh hold levels through focusing on this chakra and flowing energy through, to stop any pain that is inflicting them. A lot of ancient warriors in Japan were able to be beaten and not feel the pain.

When functioning positively on the physical level. You will feel alive and filled with spiritual energy. Your health is radiant and your are strong in mind, body and spirit.

The Crown is at the very top of the body. . . As the base chakra connects us to Mother Earth, the crown chakra connects us to the heavens, to the stars and beyond. The sky and all the power and wisdom that belongs to our higher mind. This chakra is truly an amazing and life force energy channel for healing and spiritual awakening.

This chakra governs the connection that we have to the Divine. This chakra embodies belief, unconditional love and beauty.

When we believe, we are open to learning. When we learn we open ourselves to life’s experiences that challenge us to grow and evolve into better people.

When we open ourselves to unconditional love, we allow ourselves to love and accept all beings. We are free from judgment and we are non racial to others and their beliefs. We embrace the concept that we are apart of every living thing that exists. If you believe in God, the Creator or Great spirit, you believe that these beings are apart of you. . . With unconditional love you are ready to accept other cultures and their beliefs. You embrace the concept of brother hood and sisterhood.

Beauty is within. We are all beautiful. When we truly open our hearts and our eyes we see the beauty in all life. We are able to look at others who suffer from defects and scars with love and compassion instead of embarrassment and pity. We are able to focus on the beauty rather then the scaring. In fact a lot of us do not recognize afflictions on people unless pointed out to us.

On a spiritual level, the Crown chakra is our connection to healing and life force energy. This centre is connected to your higher mind. Your higher mind is the part of you that knows all the answers.

You are able to communicate to the trees, the animals and to mother earth herself. When you open this chakra up, you can channel through spirits from different planes, aliens and many more beings that communicate on this level.

This chakra can also send healing energy down through to the others’ chakras. Telepathy is a form of communicating messages to other people. If you find that you can sense a friend or family member trying to make contact with you, it is because your crown chakra is opened and you are using this centre to send out and receive messages.

The Crown chakra is like a transmitter to the whole universe. If you send out thoughts and ideals, dreams and goals through this chakra you will be heard and a lot of the times your prayers are answered. However you must learn to use this chakra to do this. I found through doing Reiki I was able to send out healing and also set up positive outcomes to events in my life through using this chakra as a transmitter. It worked. Now I use it all the time to help myself, my friends and my family and most importantly Mother earth.

There are two major colours that you can use with this chakra. One is purple and the other is white. White represents all the colors combined together. So all the energies that exist with all the colors flow and vibrate a powerful healing frequency through this chakra. White is divine, pure, honest and new.

Through inner healing and deep meditation we are able to unlock our true potential.

The clear quartz crystal is one of the most powerful crystals on earth. It promotes clarity and transmits energy that opens us up to all the wisdom of the universe. This crystal is very powerful when you focused it on the crown chakra.
