The morning starts with a start – literally. Our hearts beat and move to the cyclical rhythms of our bodies, and nature. It’s natural to begin the day with a list of our priorities. As an Animal Practitioner, there are different ‘tunes’ that the body dances to. Awareness is captured not in bits and pieces, but rather a blank music sheet, in which notes were already created during the sleep cycle.

Brainwave maps of frequencies actually measure mind expansion, and the opportunity to experience a person’s awareness rising into higher states. “Music is the bridge to conscious awareness, self-healing, celestial attunement and the Creative Forces,” words of wisdom uttered by Edgar Cayce.

Biofeedback research has shown how brainwaves react, change, and reach higher vibrational frequencies, through meditation, chanting, heart-felt singing, guided self-discovery meditations, and the actual act of a massage/other naturopathic modalities performed on a human, or animal.

The fact of the matter is, the more relaxed, and open to peace, harmony, and living in the here and now, the practitioner is more apt to successfully positively influence those around them. And though realistically we live in a fast-paced world, one filled with competition, chaos, and a never-ending speed of change, it’s not easy to strike a balance.

It is a practitioner’s role, to plant a seed of self-recuperative abilities; thus encouraging their clients/patients to see the opportunity of being the Buddha in their own life, therefore witnessing mutual vibrational energies interact. Be it a broken human or animal; the need to feel safe, at peace and above everything else, to see the light at the end of the tunnel is paramount.

As an Animal/Human Practitioner, what do you do to take care of yourself? What are the first notes of music played as you start your day, and what instruments will you use to tune yourself, thereby creating the beneficial music that your client/patient needs to hear, and aids in our own recuperative capabilities?

RMSAAM encourages you to share your thoughts on brainwave activity, the immediate results of your massage sessions with animals or humans, and how you apply vibrational energies in your daily life.
