Does anyone think that you need permission to heal a pet? January 03, 2006 3:16 PM
My dog has been ill with pancreatitis, and I have paid a lot of attention to what her vets have said about her condition and her treatment.
Every night, I have opened up and channelled from the source, as much blue light as possible. I have smoothed away as much red infection as possible, and encased her in a blue cocoon, for her to draw on for strength. I have not troubled the vets by sharing this information with them. They seemed to be at full stretch, and I would hate them to think I did not appreciate them. I have just tried to complement their treatment and give her strength. I shall thank them for everything they have done, which is no doubt considerable. My personal involvement as a distance healer was no more than my responsibility as "Mum". I expect my husband was doing much the same, but he has not been told how to do it.
Her trust in us is absolute, so I have taken this as permission. I must say however, that I have gained a lot from reading the archived threads. While we must start where we are, I am quite definite that we must not draw on our own strength, but merely channel it from the Source, the Lotus, or whatever it is out there. I get thoroughly filled with the light, then push it out for use where it is needed.
I was taught to ask a tree permission before taking its life, to ask a plant permission before taking its fruit. The only time I've been taught to heal without getting permission is if the person, or being is seriously wounded and can not communicate. The question perhaps lies in.....do you believe your pet has a soul. Do you believe it has free will, do you believe you can effectivly communicate with it, and do you feel it can effectivly communicate back. I answer yes to all of these. So I would seek permission. If you don't believe you can effectivly communicate enough to ask permission....fall back on do no harm. Is there any way that doing what you are doing could harm the animal?

For several days, I tried to fill my dog with blue or white light drawn from the source, for her to use as she needed it, for basic strength, or specifically to make white blood cells etc, and she improved a bit. But the infection in her pancreas was affecting her bile duct, and it looked as if her peritonitis was getting worse, not better.
During my last healing session, on Thursday, I got the distinct impression that she was trying to live for us, not for herself. So as I closed the session, I gave her permission to move on if it was all too much. She was an extremely obedient dog, and a very loving one.
The next afternoon, she collapsed and died, and of course, I shall miss her dreadfully.
Oh...your post made me so sad. Often it happens that someone, including we humans, in the phase of transition, needs our permission to "let go." What a beautiful, yet sad story about your sweet friend. It was courageous and loving for you to send her that message.
I've often wondered about sending distance Reiki to people when someone has added them to a healing list. Does that person WANT the healing? I counteract any doubts by asking that the energy go toward the person's highest good. It's like a prayer. Prayer is healing too and many people pray for those who haven't asked for it or been given permission all the time. Is this wrong?
That's why I ask for the highest good, always. Somebody might need to experience an illness because it's part of their path. In that case, sending healing still gets there appropriately because it can be spiritual healing, not necessarily physical and the energy goes where spirit knows it's needed. Not where I think it should go.
Regarding animals, it's been my experience that they usually get up and walk away or turn their head and let you know that they don't want it or when enough is enough. Don't let that deter you forever though. My cat was very unhappy and poorly after some sort of accident. The first day he was so cranky he just wanted to be miserable and suffer. He refused any healing energy. The next day he wanted a little. The next day, still more. It was very interesting how he changed. It was the first time he had been given any energy healing and he had to get used to it. Each time though, he would let me know when he'd had enough and I could stop. Animals don't need it for as long as humans. Their treatments can be much shorter.
