BARBARA BUCK: “Ascension and Our Pets — How We Can Support Them”

“Species like horses, cats, bunnies, and dogs have chosen to help humans in a way that’s different from other animals. They participate in our healing by being interconnected with us in a way that is unique to the planet.”

What happens to your pets when you level up? I’m happy to tell you that, not only do they get to come along, but they’ve been supporting you and the planet through this process for a very long time. They’re going through their own form of Ascension, as well as ushering us into 5D.

When the Harmonic Convergence happened in 1987, we received a massive influx of higher frequencies, and they keep on coming. Many people are slowly beginning to understand that humanity is going through a spiritual awakening that’s both extraordinary and difficult.

While we went through the process of waking up, nature and the animal kingdom grounded and balanced the new frequencies into the Earth’s grid while we learned how to effectively do it ourselves. We’ve only recently been able to hold the light on our own, much to the hard work of the animal kingdom.

Our Pets Help Us as We Shift Frequencies

Species like horses, cats, bunnies, and dogs have chosen to help humans in a way that’s different from other animals. They participate in our healing by being interconnected with us in a way that is unique to the planet.

Animals will take on clearing for their human families in a number of ways. They’ll often absorb the negative energies we give off, which can make them sick. Many animals will have challenges with behavior as they try to integrate and clear the energy we create when we have stuck stress or emotions.

They’ll also act as shadow mirrors for us so that we can see what work we need to do to resolve trauma. If we have tension or anxiety, our dogs will mirror it by being reactive, aggressive, or destructive. If we are always afraid, so are our animals.

If they drive us crazy, it’s only so that we can recognize what we’ve chosen to avoid for so long.

Living in Human Homes Makes Their Ascension Process Harder

Normally animals would be able to process and purge the energy they absorb from us by grounding, eating a healthy natural diet, getting plenty of rest, and drinking fresh water. Sadly, we restrict them from being outdoors in nature when they need it, give them processed food like kibbles, and tap water or filtered water that doesn’t have the proper mineral balance.

They’re inundated with chemicals from pesticides and household cleaners. Remember, they spend most of their time on the ground, so they pick up all this stuff on their paws and coats, as well as breathing it in.

Environmental pollution, electrical interference, and radiation from things like wifi, computers, and cell phones don’t help, either. They’re constantly working to keep their frequency high while going through this Ascension cycle, but they’ve got a LOT to fight against when they live in a human home.

Pets experience Ascension symptoms as a result of being connected to us. Here are a few signs your pet might be having them:

  • Behavior issues like reactivity, separation anxiety, insecurity, fear, depression
  • Autistic and ADD-like behavior
  • Digestive issues
  • Joint pain
  • Picky eating
  • Liver, gallbladder, pancreas, and kidney disorders
  • An improper sense of justice that causes reactivity
  • Fatigue
  • Excess shedding that’s not normal for the breed, or loss of feathers
  • Excessive urination
  • Needing either too much attention or too much alone time

Once we become aware that our pets are experiencing Ascension symptoms that they normally wouldn’t if they were still part of the natural order of things, there are steps we can take to remove some of the energetic burden they carry. Here are some tips that can help.

As in all things, use discernment and practice common sense.

Give Them Better Quality Food and Water

Most people who are actively going through the shift naturally turn toward a more healthy lifestyle. They choose higher vibrational foods and steer clear of harsh chemicals and anything that’s processed or unnatural. Animals need the same thing, but we’ve kind of got them trapped, so they can’t do what they need to do to stay physically healthy.

Many pet food manufacturers use offal and poor quality ingredients that aren’t fit for human consumption. Meat is sourced from animals that were sick, euthanized, or died of natural causes in factory farms that process meat meant for people. Studies have also found shelter kill (cats and dogs) and euthanasia drugs in some dog foods.

The pet food industry is self-regulated, so there are no real rules about what they can and can’t do. They can and do feed your pets trash without recourse.

Research the best natural diet for your pet, then do your best to provide it. If money or time is an issue and you absolutely must feed kibble or other processed food, then research where the manufacturer sources the ingredients, especially the meat. Educate yourself on this.

Don’t fill your pet’s bowls with tap water if you wouldn’t drink it yourself. I live in the desert where the tap water is chemically treated, so we use an RO filter and replace nutrients with trace minerals.

Create a Safe Energetic Environment

Whether your animals are in your home, backyard, or barn, they need a space that is healthy.

Check for electromagnetic interference around your pets sleeping and hanging out areas, and if you find it, take steps to correct it. This could be as simple as turning off wifi at night because your pet is right in the line of the signal, or getting a blanket that shields them from EMF overload.

Protective crystals like shungite and kyanite can be used around a pet’s area, but be careful they’re in a place where your pet can’t get to them. You can also attach crystal pendants to a collar or bridle.

Many people like to burn sage to clear a space, but animals can be very sensitive to smoke from herbs. A better option is to make lavender or rosemary water and spray it around the area of your home you want to clear.

Help Them Heal with Energy Medicine

Pets can get really depleted energetically, so helping them clear and recharge with healing modalities like Reiki, Reconnective Healing, or Golden Frequency can be very helpful. They normally get all the energy they need from their environment, but that’s hard to do when they live indoors.

Most animals will let you know when they want healing from you. Intend to share energy with them, and if your pet wants it, they’ll usually come and sit near you. Sometimes they’ll even put the body part they need help with right on you!

Acupuncture, massage, and craniosacral therapy are also great tools to help your animal become more balanced energetically.

Use Natural Supplements and Medicine

The liver, gall bladder, and pancreas can be responsible for many Ascension symptoms, so supplemental support can be very helpful. Milk thistle tincture (alcohol-free) can be safely added to pet food or water to detox these organs and decrease inflammation.

As our pets move up the frequency ladder, minerals can get depleted, and they can also have a hard time absorbing nutrients. Add trace minerals or Bioplasma cell salts to their water.

Using natural remedies instead of medication whenever possible can have a big impact on your pet’s health. Always make sure that what you’re giving your pet is species-appropriate.

There’s been a big push by veterinarians lately to medicate reactive or fearful dogs with drugs like Prozac and Xanax. These drugs have never been tested for safety with animals and can have severe side-effects and a risk of overdose. CBD hemp oil is a non-psychotropic drug that’s safe for most animals.

Heal Yourself, Heal Your Pet

I’ve been blessed to facilitate healings for thousands of animals over the years, and I’ve noticed that they tend to mirror their owner’s illnesses. People with autoimmune diseases have dogs with autoimmune diseases, and stressed out people have anxious dogs.

They bless us with the gift of showing us the things that are hard for us to see.

The more self-work we do, the easier it is for us to support our beloved animals through the Ascension process. They won’t have to process as much negative energy for us as we release and clear the denser vibrations we’ve accumulated.

STEPHANIE LUCAS: “Power Animals, Totem Animals, & Animal Archetypes – Oh My!”

Art-36a-700x325

 We recently published a piece exploring the amazing realm of Power Animals, which brought on a few questions from readers about the difference between Power Animals and Power Totems and Animal Archetypes. It’s beautiful to see a resurgence of interest in indigenous teachings concerning the power of utilizing our animal counterparts to help guide us in connecting and realigning with our spiritual environment and oneness with Nature. So, let’s delve into these ‘differences.

What are Power Animals and How Do We ‘Run’ With Them?

You may be born with a Power Animal that you become conscious of or are guided to through a shamanic experience. They may change during your lifetime, as they are gifts of consciousness intended to guide and protect you along your journey – so they may be similar to you in traits or they may complement your aspects and assist you areas in which you need strength. Sometimes, Power Animals come to us in times of grief, pain, or in times of soul losses.

For example, if you suffer from a lack of interest or malaise, your Power Animal may return to you as a monkey to inspire curiosity and interest. If you have fallen prey to unforeseen dangers, it may be tiger that comes to assist. Under their protection it is believed that your natural instinctual self will feel safe enough to return to you and that Power Animal might then depart.

Totem Animals Help Ones Self-Discovery

Totem Animals often represent ancestral lineages, lore, belief systems, and/or aspects of villages, clans, or families. Cultures around the world use totems as sources of strength – a medicine of sorts – that helps them draw and define the meaning and purpose of their soul and existence.

Many Native Americans belief that you have one Spirit Totem that will be with you for life acting as your primary guardian spirit, yet many may enter and leave your life as they are needed to aid your journey. If not through lineage, many people discover their Totem Animal simply because they have an inexplicable attraction to a particular creature or keep finding themselves in the company of a certain animal in both physical and dream realms. Intuition guides you to your totem…your Totem then guides you.

The Profound Pleasure of Animal Archetypes

According to Jungian psychology, archetypes are some of the highest developed elements of the collective unconscious that serve to interact and call upon the Divine glory of the universal web in a specific way. Many indigenous cultures consider Animal Archetypes as guides to universal organizing principles in which they ultimately orchestrate their world around. For example, to ‘shed’ old problems and reconnect with the earth, one might call on Serpent…yet, if one wants to ‘rediscover’ and enjoy the nectar of the universe – hummingbird might be called upon. Essentially, Animal Archetypes in generally may be how an entire culture chooses to define and manifest their world.

STEPHANIE LUCAS: “Unleash Your Primal Spirit: Working with Power Animals”

power animals

I truly enjoy spending time with my power animal. My silent friend and I walk, run, play, and dance as we move as one in our instinctually common habitats – strengthening our connection. The relationship between you and your Power Animal is typically a symbiotic one of kinship and shared traits. A strong bond allows you to tap into their primal instincts and powers as you and the animal work as one, growing spiritually. The stronger the connection, the stronger your joined experiences will be amid both the physical and metaphysical realms.

What Are Power Animals?

power animalsPower animal spirits are not perceivable by the traditional five senses, and some of the most well known are Bear, Buffalo, Owl, Eagle, Wolf, Snake, and Rabbit. Power animals are protectors and partners with whom accompany and protect you on daily and take otherworldly journeys. They know their way around and can get you into and out of your destination unharmed.

It is said that you have at least one power animal from birth, and you may actually have several. They may be present simultaneously or guide you individually as you progress along your path with each offering different types of guidance and protection in accordance with your journey. Many are most familiar with Native American Power Animals, but spirit animals animals entities exist in many cultures. Here is a great resource to discover your power animals and birth totem.

Power Animals – Connecting Your Spiritual and Physical Worlds

While not ‘teachers’ in the direct sense of other types of spiritual guides, you have much to learn from your Power Animal – mostly insights into your own character – your strengths, weaknesses, and how to better understand your mind, body, and spirit – all through understanding your animal’s habitual instincts.

Protection – Power Animals excel in journeying, and they will serve you in the physical realm as protectors when you mentally call upon them for assistance. To put things into perspective, you may want to call upon a totem like Bear or Wolf to shield you in dangerous situations, but smaller creatures like Snake or Rabbit could aid you with their hiding or movement abilities. Rely on instincts – know your animal!

Physical & Spiritual Realms – Beyond mere protection on the physical plane, your will likely have shared traits with your Power Animal or Totem. You may find that you prefer warm weather over cold or that you suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder when it’s not your season. You may find certain activities and types work preferable. Think you’re not a cat person? Maybe your animal doesn’t care for them either! You may be able to eat very little for long periods as Snake does, or you may find comfort in running with a group like Buffalo or Wolf. Looking inside yourself and realizing your preferences in these realms can help you discover your spirit animal.

power animalsBonding with Power Animals – Welcome the Call of the Wild

The calling of the wild, primordial animal within you may be something you typically try to restrain. After all, many will assume that you are as nutty as a peanut butter cookie if you say you communicate with a Spirit Animal that guides and protects you. However, fostering the bond with your spirit animal is essential. If you don’t spend enough time with them and show appreciation for their insight and protections – just like stones and crystals disappear – your power animal can also abandon you!

Here are some tips Shamans and other spiritual guides recommend for connecting with your Power Animal.

  1. Keep the Identity of your Animal Mum: It can seem overwhelmingly tempting to share your power animal with others. However, knowing the identity of your totem can disclose your own strengths and weakness to others. This could open the door for others to tap into your realm with intent on causing psychic and physical harm to you.
  2. Communicate with Your Animal: Silently asks your friend for assistance when you are weak, afraid, or need counsel. Take time daily to acknowledge their presence when you awaken, to thank them before you sleep, and offer to ‘free’ them to a place of their pleasure while you rest if you feel so inclined.
  3. Learn About Your Power Animals: Get attuned with your animals’ habits – their food sleeping and mating patterns are essential for you to embrace and learn about to keep you totem happy. You’ll also learn more about your habits and how to be tuned into what your ‘gut’ tells you rather than what is the ‘norm.’
  4. Gratitude & Acknowledgment: Take time to honor your animal, whether it be with a photo on your sacred space/altar or through donating or volunteering to causes that preserve their species or habitat.
  5. Dance, Dance, Dance: If you are just now discovering your animal, dance with them right away – when the time of shyness and conscious predispositions may impede your dance. Animals love to play and dance, as it promotes the state of connecting with higher realms, the primordial instincts within us all, and it frees the spirit from the confines of the grounded realm. So, dance away!
