Well, that is what I wondered. My first concern was if I would injure the animal, but the Master who trained, Dr Suzanne Friedman, assured me that animals respond very well to Qigong medical treatments.
So I DID IT! I did my first medical Qigong treatment on an animal!
I thought I should prepare for this so did a meditation before going to my home visit for a pet. After all, I wanted to be in the right frame of mind.
Usually when I ground, I connect deeply in the earth and see what feels like a huge running river deep in the earth. I connect there, or even go deeper, but with this grounding, for a Pet Qigong treatment, I could feel everything getting tighter, smaller, and the grounding process became VERY shallow. It was as if all my energy was becoming very small and compact.
This was so different from anything I have ever experienced, but I said, “OK. I guess this is how it is with treating animals”
I then went to my friend’s house and did a Qigong medical treatment on her rabbit.
I do not know rabbits or their behaviors, so relied on my friend to let me know if the behavior was different. She was expecting the rabbit to be freaked out and try to escape. He didn’t. He just sat there. He was VERY calm. He just wiggled his nose a bit and seemed to REALLY like it!
During the assessment, I thought I would feel energy stagnation, similar to what I sense in people, but I didn’t. The rabbits problem areas were icy cold, which surprised me, so I directed energy there.
After the rabbit, we brought in the kitty. This helped me also compare the differences between the two pets. Just like with the rabbit, the problem areas with the cat felt COLD. Just like the experience with the rabbit, the cat just sat there very calm and collected, almost asking for more. He seemed to REALLY enjoy the treatment.
I’m going to explore doing Qigong on other animals. It was rather fascinating to experience The animals behavior during the treatments was surprising and they both seemed MUCH better after their treatment!
