Animals Chakras and Energy Centres
Animals have Auras too. Dogs and Cats both have an energy body and each have their own chakra centres. The animal chakra system also emits different color vibrations depending on the shape and intensity of the energy in each centre. The color schemes of the animal chakra system are similar as the human system is, and the functions are nearly the same. In four-legged animals the main difference is that the alignment and chakra positions are often horizontal instead of vertical.
In animals, the energy field is usually much wider than in humans. Because of an animals natural survival instinct, the aura tends to absorb much more sensory information than humans. They receive and distribute energy through each chakra individually, which makes them sensitive to more subtle vibrations and and changes within the atmosphere or environment.
All animals have an Etheric Chakra System just like humans. Most animals have 8 Major chakras, up to 21 Minor chakras and 6 smaller energy points known as Bud chakras. (4 paw pads, and the bud of skin at the opening of the ears). Alongside the seven Major chakras that animals share with humans (Crown, Third Eye/Brow, Throat, Heart, Solar Plexus, Sacral and Root), there is another Major chakra which is unique to animals only. It is called the Brachial or Key chakra. Most animals have 8 major active chakras which play an important role in their general behavior. These chakras can be stimulated and healed in a variety of ways.
Animal Chakras and Energy Healing
Energy healing can greatly benefit any animal. Similar to the human energy system, when an animal chakra is blocked or has insufficient energy then the system becomes imbalanced. This can eventually result in behavioral and emotional issues, or physical disease in the area connected to the chakra. Similar methods and techniques for healing chakra imbalances in humans, can also be used on animals to restore balance and prevent or assist in healing related issues.
Similar to the human system, each organ of the animal's body also corresponds to one of the chakras. A specific physical issue can be targeted by directing energy toward the chakra related to the issue. Animals are much more perceptive of subtle energy than humans. Since animals are naturally more grounded and connected to root chakra energy, they have a more instinctually way of keeping the energy of their lower chakra centers in balance. The higher chakras in an animal are often closed but can be opened and activated with assistance. Before beginning any energy healing work on an animal it helps to gently massage each energy center first. This helps the animal become more relaxed and receptive.
