As humans, we sometimes forget that our pets feel stress. They get emotional, upset and overwhelmed with life. Just as we use healing crystals for ourselves, we can impart some of this to our cats and dogs as well.
So how do they work?
Inherently, crystals offer emotional support and healing to the wearer. But also, you can add your intentions and good vibes (or feelings) to the stone yourself and then give them as a gift to your cat or dog. Each type of crystal has it’s own type of healing properties.
Please note: crystals do not replace proper veterinary health care. The use of crystals goes hand in hand with the proper care that your doctor suggests for your four legged friend. They are companions in their care and should never EVER replace the advice of your pet’s healthcare doctors.
So how do I do that?
It’s a very easy thing to do and here are a few steps you can follow. And honestly, there are no rules to this, you can do whatever feels right to you.
- When your crystal arrives, cleanse the stone if you wish. This removes any residual energy that the crystal may have picked up on its journey to you.
- Take the time to touch the stone after you have cleansed it. Hold it in your hands and let it warm up to your skin temperature.
- Close your eyes and visualize the healing properties you wish to see the crystal help your pet with. Don’t just do this for a second, take a minute or two and tell the crystal what you would like it to do for your pet.
- When you feel you are finished, add the crystal to your pet’s collar and spend time with your pet visualizing the healing properties working in tandem with your pet’s care to help them to feel better.
It’s really important to note that crystals are companions along your pet’s life journey. Just like they are for you, they are there for emotional support when you need them. Sometimes? The universe has other plans for our four legged friends and they are only meant to be with us for short periods of time. But during that time, perhaps your gift can help them through the tough spots and also help them to feel your love in times of stress.
Something good to note, crystals are fragile and with very active pets they can be damaged quickly. If you are going to follow along a journey of having one for your loved one, it’s always good to enter into this knowing and understanding that this is a possible outcome. Over the years of working with humans to help their cats and dogs, there is more of a trend that crystals go missing on dogs than cats.
May your pet’s life be long and healthy!
