Healing Touch and Etheric Heartbeat™

One of the things we hear over and over from participants in our classes is the overwhelming emotions they feel during class. Etheric Heartbeat™, in particular, tends to bring out strong feelings when participants experience it–especially for the first time.

Etheric Heartbeat™ is a technique that surrounds the entire body with heat chakra energy, increasing balance and improving whole-body wellness. It is one of the most successful and soothing techniques presented through the Healing Touch for Animals® program.

Lisa Osthelder, BA, HTAP, of Phoenix, talks about her experience with “unconditional love” in the following paragraphs:

During the last day of the Level 1 Healing Touch for Animals® course we were able to work with horses. The last thing we practiced during class was a technique called “Etheric Heartbeat.” It was during this time, standing in the midst of the unconditional love of my horse Reno, I had a profound emotional and spiritual experience. I was overwhelmed with unconditional love beyond anything I have ever felt. I was standing next to this horse and immersed in absolute love. To be able to give back to these amazing creatures, which serve people in many different ways, is deeply rewarding.

This was the pivotal moment when I decided I had to specialize in working with animals. Animals are our teachers, our companions, our livelihood, our best friends, our babies, our kids, our healers, and our therapists all wrapped in one. I ultimately quit my corporate career in May 2013 and have dedicated my career to healing animals ever since then. For once in my life, I can say I love what I do each and every day. I have truly found my passion healing our beloved animals of this world.

The Miracle of Healing Touch for Animals®

A touching story came to us by way of Wanda Buckner, Ed.D., CHTP, HTAP, Reiki Mstr, of Olympia, Washington. Wanda, who is also the author of Choosing Energy Therapy: A Practical Guide to Healing Options for People and Animals (Aviva Press, 2014), shares the following:

Healing Touch for Animals

Taiko benefited from Healing Touch for Animals®

Taiko’s owner called me at 8:07 a.m. with tears in her voice; it looked like today was going to be the last day of her wonderful 14 year old Shiba Inu’s life and she wanted him to have a soothing energy treatment first. She told me Taiko, who has renal failure, had been very slow to wake up. He had lost bladder and bowel control and was barely able to walk. His right rear leg dragged with the toes folding backward. The owner planned to call the mobile veterinarian to help Taiko die peacefully at home.

When I arrived Taiko was on blankets confined to a small bathroom. He was lying down, but his head was up and he was alert. When he tried to walk, his right hind leg could not take any pressure. I put my hands on the joints of his right rear leg, but he moved away from me, dragging the leg. His owner carried him outdoors to potty, but he wasn’t interested. He did drink some water and ate some treats.

When I assessed Taiko, I was surprised to find the hara line intact, the chakras open, and the spinal energy flowing (though slower toward the tail). Even the right leg was open all the way down, just slower toward the toes. My hand scan did not seem to indicate pain, but Taiko was clearly uncomfortable. He couldn’t stand long. He couldn’t sit down. Getting to a prone position was difficult. His eyes were a little squinted and dull.

I used Pan-Away (for pain relief) by inhalation and ran my hands with the oil on them along Taiko’s spine and down his right leg. Because Taiko was uncomfortable and could not stay still, I asked the owner for a large stuffed dog that I could use as a surrogate.

I began the Energy Frequency Balance™ on the surrogate, holding each hand position for an extended time. Taiko laid down about six feet away, in sight of the owner but out of my sight. After the technique, I continued with the leg portion of the Chakra Balance for Animals™, beginning with the right rear leg. During the treatment, Taiko got up and went back to his bed in the bathroom. When the owner checked on him, he was in a semi-curled position. She noted to me that this was something he hadn’t been able to do for some time.

As I finished with the front legs, I finally felt Taiko’s energy surge through him. With my hands still on the surrogate, Taiko got up and came into the main room walking on all four legs! He stood between the owner and me and shook himself. Even his tail moved a little, which it hadn’t for the past year.

We were both amazed! Taiko walked around as if nothing unusual had happened this morning. I gathered my supplies. Taiko escorted me to the door and enjoyed some long body strokes before I left, looking fit and ready for the day. Instead of seeing Taiko for the last time, I had seen a miracle.
