Let’s take a closer look at ‘grounding’. We can view this as an opportunity to plant our feet firmly on the ground; or… to simply feel the solidity of the earth under our feet. Is there a difference? Truth be told, no.

Think back to your last vacation. Perhaps, when you were on a beach; the sand drifted its many grains of miniscule pebbles through your toes, and the heat wormed its way through your feet, your calves, knees, thighs, hips, and so on…

As an Animal Practitioner, how is this different than grounding your energy prior to working with an animal? You are in a serene, quiet, and relaxed environment; soft and soothing music plays in the background, (or a horse arena, stable, or field with beautiful views) for your animal client. Your senses are heightened, as you connect with the senses of your client. But… and there always is one… what shall you do with the background ‘interference’ of daily life?

Is it normal for the mental spider webs to hang around precariously? Yes. (You’re only human.) Yet, what do you do with that interference? How do you keep your feet planted on the ground whilst you perform the act of giving your gifts away as an Animal Practitioner? The only way is to bathe the ‘social static’ away from your cells that then permeate through your entire body, bathed in beautiful white, bright, light.

Light and blissful drops of rain filled with light and pure unconditional love, deposited throughout your entire body. A brief, simple, and concentrated meditation is all that is needed to achieve this blissful and beautiful state of being prior to the moments of working on your animal client. For humans, life is filled with debris, but for animals, life is filled with innocence, and promise – nature continually gifts us; let’s mirror their experience, and recreate this during your sessions!
