Energy healing for animals worldwide


Animal Empaths offered free energy healing to the followers of their facebook page in the days preceding October 4th – World Animal Day.

This is how it went


It’s the start of summer in South Africa. Sunday was hot, but the day started off with a cool breeze. Even though I live in suburbia, I’m lucky to be surrounded by so many trees  which are sporting their season’s new greenery. The birds contributed to the soundtrack of the morning and complimented the whale sounds I chose to play.

I chose two oracle decks and pulled a card from each. Aren't these perfect?

Once I’d set  up our sacred space, I drew the reiki symbols and set my intention: 

My intention is to use this opportunity to connect with animal lovers around the world and send love and healing light to all the animals in need, around our beautiful planet. 



I started our ceremony with the sound of the Tibetan singing bowl. I use this to mark the beginning and the end of my rituals. 


I invited in my guides and those high vibrating beings of the energetic realms to join us.

Taking a deep breath, I gave thanks for all my animals who I’ve had the  privilege of knowing and sharing my life with... 

... For all the wonderful, warm people who asked for healing for their animal friends, and the fact that these beings are loved and cherished.

I put my hands on my heart and focused on the love that connects all of us to each other, regardless of where we are. 

I imagined it expanding outwards, amplified by our hearts, as it spread around the world. Touching people, influencing lives as it was felt by all those who needed to experience some extra love in their lives. 

I started connecting with the animals whose plights I’m aware of. This is what came through:

I saw our planet’s largest animals and their energetic connection to each other... Whales to elephants, to polar bears; and then surprisingly, to crocodiles!

I don’t stop to question the information or guidance I’m receiving. I continued to expand the feeling of love and energy as it flowed from me. I trust that the information that's come through will be clear and make sense when I reflect on it later.

Next...

I had an aerial view of earth, quite close to the surface, so that I could see people and animals, but from above. The visual was quite bland in colour, with browns and beiges. As I watched, I saw the colour change on the earth’s surface and then start seeping upwards. Into the plants and up through the legs of the animals and people. The colour changed from a dark magenta to a lightness that eventually radiated everywhere.

The image faded to whiteness as I continued to sit and feel the connection and the energy flowing. 

I picked up the pages I’d printed out containing all the messages. As I read the name of each person and their animal friends, I imagined each of you, held in a ball of white, healing light.

With my hand on my heart I gave thanks again. 
I ended our beautiful ceremony by sounding the Tibetan singing bowl again.

When I reflected on the messages I’d received, the following information came through:

I saw our planet’s largest animals and their energetic connection to each other... Whales to elephants, to polar bears; and then surprisingly, to crocodiles!

In my mind’s eye, the first animal I saw was a whale, with a pink line that travelled straight to an elephant, then a polar bear and then to a crocodile.

The feeling associated with this was one of connection. I also go the word ‘grid’.

I took this to mean that the collective of each of these species is holding an energetic grid between them. This grid has multiple purposes. In a sense it felt like they are holding the blueprint for the energetic potential of our planet. 

Their wisdom, higher knowledge and compassion are all contained within this grid, and this energy is available to all of us at any time. All we need to do is sit quietly and intend to connect to this grid. This is one way to receive healing energy from the animals, but also a way to contribute energy back into an existing grid of compassion and healing which encompasses our planet. 

I wasn’t surprised when I saw Whale, Elephant and Polar Bear show up, but I was surprised to see Crocodile there. When I asked about that, I got the sense that Crocodile is teaching us to remain grounded, being so close to the ground themselves. This is a reminder to be grounded at all times. Even when we are hooked and then triggered by the harsh stories  of cruelty that we’re exposed to in the media and that we hear about in our communities. When we are grounded we are plugged in. Plugged into the earth, we experience a feeling of being present and aware of our body.

I had an aerial view of earth, quite close to the surface, so that I could see people and animals, but from above. The visual was quite bland in colour, with browns and beiges. As I watched, I saw the colour change on the earth’s surface and then start seeping upwards. Into the plants and up through the legs of the animals and people. The colour changed from a dark magenta to a lightness that eventually radiated everywhere.

This felt like it was a continuation from the first images I saw. When I enquired about the meaning of what I was seeing, I understood this visual to represent the raising of consciousness on our planet. The change of the colour, from magenta (dark pink) to lighter pink and then complete light, tells me that we are all part of the energetic change on the planet. 

Again, we can help this process by being present and grounded. As we raise our consciousness, so we will influence the environment around us and this will have an energetic knock-on effect as more and more people are influenced.

I felt blessed and so connected to all of you who joined us. 

Thank you, and thank you from all the animals too.

World Animal Day – How you can help without leaving home

#AnimalEmpathsWAD

























To mark World Animal Day on 4 October this year, we would like to invite animal lovers around the world to join us in sending love and healing energy to animals in need on our planet.

Myself and my mom, Reiki Master Carol Mulrooney, will be conducting a healing ritual for animals worldwide in celebration of St Francis day. We would like to include you and your animal friends. 

How you can participate

To receive healing

Pop over to this post on our facebook page and leave your name and the names of your animal companions in the comments and we'll include all of you in our Reiki healing circle.

To send healing

We’ll be holding our ceremony at 8am standard South African time on Sunday morning. You can join us at the same time in your time zone. The time of day isn’t as important as your intention to send love and healing out into the world.

A simple healing ritual you can follow if you choose

What you’ll need
  • Table cloth
  • A candle and matches
  • Some incense
  • Crystals
  • Vase of fresh flowers
  • Animal totem cards
  • Pictures, photos and statues of animals – including your companion animals
  • Pen and paper
  • Your written intention
  • A prayer that you’ve chosen
  • A list of things that you’re grateful for in your own life
  • A fireproof container

This is a general list, you can include any items that are sacred to you. 

How to conduct your ritual

Start off by creating your sacred space

  • Set your altar or area: arrange your items on your tablecloth in a semi circle around your photos, which you’ll place in the centre.
  • Light your candle and incense. 
  • Smudge the air around you and your space – the smoke will cleanse the air.

Set your intention. Something simple will do:

My intention is to use this opportunity to connect with animal lovers around the world, and send love and healing light to all the animals in need around out beautiful planet. 

You could list the animals that you know of who live in dire circumstances.
Some examples might be:

  • Those in puppy mills
  • Those used in circuses and for human entertainment everywhere
  • Rhinos in Africa who are being poached for their horns
  • Lions trapped in the canned hunting industry
  • Dogs who are used for fighting
  • Animals in shelters who are waiting for their forever homes
  • Animals who are lost or have been abandoned
  • Those whose habitats are under threat
You get the idea.

The trick here, though, dear empaths...
is not to allow this depressing list to trigger thoughts and feelings of anger in you. Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to keep your heart’s vibration high. 

By that I mean, keep taking deep breaths and put your hands over your own heart space and focus on the LOVE you feel for animals. All animals. And expand THAT feeling out into the air around you.

If your thoughts keep turning to the pain and suffering, turn your attention back to your written intention:

My intention is to use this opportunity to connect with animal lovers around the world and send love and healing light to all the animals in need around out beautiful planet. 

Use your imagination
Imagine that we are all connected to one another (which we are); imagine your energy expanding and touching the energy of another person, just like you, see your expanding energy as a pink light connecting and growing in a cloud of love that eventually circles our planet. Focus on that. On the vibration of love that you are adding to. And keep breathing that love into your body and out again in the world. 

Once you feel comfortable with this energy, read your list out loud. Focus on that healing energy and put your hand on your heart to support yourself emotionally.

If you have experience using reiki, remember to use the reiki symbols to reinforce your intention. 

Read your prayer out loud and imagine that it’s heard by those whose hearts are softened and opened where they most need to be.

Ending with gratitude

Read your gratitude list. Notice how peaceful you feel, and how a feeling of gratitude helps to ground our energy and intention. Give thanks for the safety of your own companion animals. For the love they share unconditionally with us. 

Give thanks for all those animals who have found forever homes, for the open-hearted among us who provide shelter and food for animals where they can. 

Give thanks and send love to all the shelter workers, park rangers and individuals who save, care for, protect and rescue animals where they can.

Sit quietly a while and give thanks for all the good in the world.

If you choose, you can burn your written intentions and prayers and gratitude list. If they’re something you want to keep, take a photo with your phone or scan them first. 

Traditionally, smoke is considered to have carried prayers to heaven. Burn your papers and trust that your prayers and healing requests will travel to where they are most needed.


Thank you so much for sharing your uplifting energy with all of us!


This is how we can help change old patterns and transform old ways of thinking. By sending our love into the world. Our collective, ongoing energetic focus will help shift the old and transmute those energies into higher vibrating ones.
