Chakras for People

 

In the body there are some minor chakra centers and seven major locations. Each chakra has it’s own frequency vibration thus the varying colors that are assigned to each individual chakra. People with blocked or imbalanced chakras may experience the feeling of “being off” and cannot figure out why. A chakra can become inactive quite easily from daily triggers (from within us or external events), stress, work, diet, relationship, money worries, negative pocketed energy, all of these factors can influence and impact the chakra centers and contribute to imbalance or dis-ease. Chakras can also flow too actively and therefore it is important to keep them in-check.

Root Charka (Red) – This chakra symbol represents the most earth centered chakra. It stands for our belief systems, family, early childhood. We feel grounded when this chakra is open.

Sacral Chakra (Orange) – The second from the bottom of the seven chakras is about our relationships, creativity, sexuality, control and money.

Solar Plexus Chakra (Yellow) – This chakra symbol connects us with the energy to act and expressing our personal power. People who are more ‘knowing’ often say they have a feeling that something is about to happen or has happened.

Heart Chakra(Emerald Green) – The heart chakra is the integration point for the seven chakras of the body and involves our emotions and feelings.

Throat Chakra( Turquoise Blue) – The throat chakra symbol is all about communication, the right to speak and be heard.

Third Eye Chakra (Dark Blue Indigo) Our intuition and psychic abilities, the spiritual eye.

Crown Chakra (Purple) – This chakra is located at the top of the head and spins very quickly as our direct connection to the divine source. Guidance and healings come through us, from source, and this energy is of a higher frequency.

The simple measure of keeping the chakras open and balanced can bring clarity and flow to your energy system and enhance your physical, mental and spiritual well being.

Chakra Meanings in Dogs Vibrant Equine Healing

Chakra Meanings in Dogs

Chakras are energy spinning vortices located in the body. The animal absorbs energy through these centers and it is filtered outwards. When there are energy blockages or imbalances, it may hinder energy flow. If there are no medical issues for your pet from your veterinarian, look to the animals energy field. Blocked chakra symptoms may go hand-in-hand with undesirable behaviour and unusual unpredictable ways of acting out. As you can see, not all concerns can be remedied through dog training alone.

Root Chakra – Is about being physically there and feeling at home in situations. If the Root Chakra is open and balanced, your dog probably feels grounded, stable and secure and does not distrust people. They are confident and feel they have sufficient territory. If your dog tends to be fearful or nervous, their Root Chakra is probably under-active. If this chakra is over-active your dog may be very greedy, a toy or food bowl guarder, possibly obsessed with being secure and resistant change.

Sacral Chakra – This chakra is about feelings and sexuality. When the Sacral Chakra is open and balanced, your dog’s feelings flow freely, and are expressed without being overemotional or frantic. They are open to affection and can be loving and lively. If your dog tends to be stiff and unemotional or guarded, the Sacral Chakra is under-active. If this chakra is over-active, your dog may tend to be emotional all the time. They will be very emotionally attached to people and may have separation anxiety.

Solar Plexus Chakra – This chakra is about your dog asserting themselves in a group. When the Solar Plexus Chakra is open, the feeling is of being in control and there is sufficient self esteem. When the Solar Plexus chakra is under-active, your dog may be passive and timid. If this chakra is over-active, your dog may be domineering and probably even aggressive.

Heart Chakra – The Heart Chakra is about love, kindness and affection. When your dog’s Heart Chakra is open and balanced, your dog is compassionate, loving and friendly, and you work at harmonious relationships. When your Heart Chakra is under-active, your dog may be fearful, cold and distant.

Throat Chakra – The Throat Chakra is about self-expression and talking. When the dog’s Throat Chakra is open and balanced, your dog will have no problems expressing herself and being understood. When this chakra is under-active, your dog may be introverted and shy. If this chakra is over-active, your dog will tend to bark or vocalize too much, usually to domineer and manipulate.

Third Eye Chakra – The Third Eye Chakra is about insight and visualisation. When the Third Eye is open and balanced, your dog will be intuitive and well balanced between the world of people and that of dogs. If it is under-active, your dog will not be not very good at thinking for herself, and you may tend to rely on you too much and might even get confused easily. If this chakra is over-active, your dog may live in a world of fantasy and only play.

Crown Chakra – The Crown Chakra is about wisdom and being one with the world. When their Crown Chakra is open and balanced, your dog is quite aware of the world and her place in it. If it is under-active, your dog may be one of those that just does not fit in. If this chakra is over-active, your dog may worry too much and not take care of their own needs.

Dangerous Foods & Products to Avoid for Dogs Vibrant Equine Healing

Dangerous Foods & Products to Avoid for Dogs

 

Salt  (Sidewalk)  and De-Icers ~

Before we get into foods and medications to avoid for our pets, lets not forget that sidewalk salt and a majority of de-icers can be toxic when absorbed through your dog’s paw pads during the winter months. There are a variety of ‘Paw Balm’ products to choose from, and you can treat your dog’s paw pads before you set out on your walk. Be aware of shivering and if your dog slows down during the walk, or appears to be nervous or anxious as these may be signs of frostbite, chemical burns or even hypothermia in very cold weather. Wash off the paw pads with warm water as soon as you get home from your walk and dry them off well to prevent your pet from licking and ingesting any salt or chemical residual which may have been deposited during your walk.

Human Medictions ~ Aspirin Tylenol Advil etc: GI Ulcers and kidney failure

Artificial Sweetners ~ found in candy, gum or human food: hypoglycemia, liver failure or death

Alcohol ~ intoxiction, coma or death

Caffeine ~ toxic to nervous system and heart: diarrhea and vomiting

Chocolate ~ toxic to heart & nervous system: death

Cooked Bones from Fish Chicken Pork Beef etc ~ stomach lacerations, chipped and broken teeth

Rawhide Chew Bones and Products ~ stomach and GI blockages, non-digestible

Fatty Foods ~ excessive fatty foods: pancreatitis

Dairy ~ excessive dairy: diarrhea

Avocado ~ contains persin: vomiting and diarrhea

Raisins, Curants Grapes ~ kidney failure

Walnuts, Macadamias ~ nervous system and muscle damage

Messages from your dog! Vibrant Equine Healing

Messages from your dog!

…and what they would like You to know about Them ~

Dogs are creatures of habit. They like to have their bed and food bowls in the same place; Otherwise, this may be unsettling and confusing to them. It is the same idea as if you were to come home and find your furniture rearranged or in a different place. Your comfort zone would be feeling, not so comfortable. The dog crate is your best friend. If you train your dog to have his or her crate for their first bed they will always have a ‘home away from home‘. Your dog will be comfortable when it is crated in the car, in another location or place where you are visiting or even when travelling on an airplane.

Make sure you buy a crate that is airline approved. You can bring your new puppy home in a crate or a senior rescued dog home and it will be secure and happy. Kenneling reflects pack theory as well. Dogs associate their crate as a type of den, as did its ancestors the wolf, living in caves and dens for housing and bringing up their young.  Dogs can stay on the same type of dog food and do not require a variety of foods to make them happy. As long as their dietary needs are being met for what ever stage of life they are in, they will be fine with the same dog food. Should they wish for a bit of a change up in their meals, I would suggest you give them different snacks which will compliment their diet. Handy treats may include, baby carrots or a stock of broccoli which will give then additional fibre and roughage to their diet. These naturals are also filling and take more calories to digest then they have caloric count. Routine is also very important not only with their feeding schedule but with their daily exercise times as well.

How dogs view their humans is interesting. They find what we worry and get stressed to much. They think our lifestyles are very complicated and that their purpose is to bring joy and comfort and to remind us the simplicity of life.

Dogs think, or so they have told me, that our energy is quite hard to penetrate. I think that is the foundation of learning how to have a better connection with our pet, to get through all the mind chatter and learn to have more clarity and flow within ourselves.

When we align ourselves with nature, we are in tune with the animals and their spirit essence as well.

9 Tips to Remember When You’re Getting A Dog! Vibrant Equine Healing

9 Tips to Remember When You’re Getting A Dog!

Are you thinking about expanding your family with a dog? Here are some basic tips you may want to consider before your wonderful unconditional loving companion arrives.

  • Firstly, what is your lifestyle? Do you want an active dog or perhaps a lap dog?

  • There are several groups of dogs to choose from namely ~ Sporting and Non-Sporting Groups, Terrier, Toy, Hounds, Working and Herding Groups.

  • Fulfill your dog’s drives. Make every effort to address its natural breed instincts to keep them entertained and happy. For instance if you have a hunting dog i.e. Poodle, Duck Toller, Lab etc, they will appreciate and love going for a swim!

  • What are the inherent physical characteristics of your dog’s breeding? Pure breeds may have physical liabilities. What are these breed specific needs that may require medical support during your dogs lifetime for health and maintenance?

  • Do you want to get a male puppy or breed your dog? If you get a pure breed perhaps get it “puppy tested”. Puppy Testing involves a battery of manual tests performed with the pup to see where it stacks up in the litter. Is it the runt or are you getting the best pick of the litter?

  • Larger dogs do not have the longevity of a smaller dog, age wise.

  • Grooming requirements. Some short hairs require no grooming, but other breeds may require a trip to the groomers every few weeks. This may be an additional expense for you to consider. You may want to get a dog that has a hypoallergenic coat, just in case of a family member developing an allergic reaction to the dog. It is a shame that so many dogs are surrendered to shelters because of allergies. Shedding is less problematic with a hypoallergenic breed.

  • Prepare the family before the dogs arrival. If you are expecting a new addition and a baby is ‘on the way’, please ensure that your Family Pack Order is reinstated. You can simply practice with a surrogate baby (a doll), to tip off Rover, that there is something new coming into the family home! Practice walking the dog beside the baby carriage first. The dog should be walking beside you, not forward of the baby. By setting up this simple positioning, the baby is already ‘ahead of the dog’ in pack order.

  • If you like a certain breed, check out Pure Breed Adoption Agencies.

Local Animal Shelters and Pet Rescue and Adoption facilities are also wonderful resources. If you long to have a pet and it is impossible for you to have one at this time of your own, consider fostering a pet. Your foster companion will come to you having been neutered or spayed and with the proper vaccinations and a clean bill of health. The expenses of maintenance and care costs are provided by the agency as well.

The Healing Monk Canine Pack Theory and Family Pack Balance Vibrant Equine Healing

The Healing Monk Canine Pack Theory and Family Pack Balance

Wolves are the ancestors of the dog. They have a hierarchical structure and their specific territories are sacred to them, they are social animals and live in, and form packs. Within the wolf pack there is an Alpha or dominant male, and an Alpha, or dominant female. As within the wolf pack, the younger and stronger wolf members will attempt to challenge the Alpha male for dominance and leadership. Within your family pack, depending upon how dominant your dog is, he/she, will attempt to elevate his/her status as well within your family pack. Members within the pack know their exact role and at times flexibility is necessary which adds to the success, and fluidity of the pack order. It is important to establish yourself as the pack leader in the beginning of training and form this partnership relationship of mutual respect, for success in dog training. It is a tough position for your dog to be the ‘Top Dog’ and constantly maintaining the pack balance within the family unit.

 

There is a very unique technique The Healing Monk Dog Training Program incorporates to establish the pack leader position which is non-invasive to the dog, and yourself, and takes a few moments of time. Once the Alpha Male and Alpha Female roles are established, the subordinates, which are the siblings and other animals in your family, also fall within the pack ‘pecking order’ and a partnership with your dog is established.

 

It is a great, great! relief for your dog to relinquish their role as pack leader and they will now look to You! for guidance and leadership.

Our Program offers Animal Communication Mentoring for you throughout the whole training program, especially for you. In other words you learn “how to communicate with your dog” on an intuitive level and ‘relationship build’ which will result in a harmonious relationship with your pet for ever lasting results.

When people come to Judy for dog training they are saying there is an imbalance in their family pack. “My dog is doing all this bad behaviour and everybody is stressed out”. Dog training is great, don’t get me wrong, but does it address where the dog is coming from, from what it is ‘feeling’ and experiencing from its’ point of view? For long lasting results with your training selection, don’t forget that Fido must be balanced and happy, and so should you be! Did you know that dogs have all the same emotions that humans do except for the fact that they cannot reason? Alpha dog training does not always ‘work’ for long. Why?..because the underlying imbalance of the dog, and your expectations, were not initially addressed or healed. In other words, the pack is still not balanced. Dogs will do great with training, but are they happy just pleasing you? They may love you but is the respect there….no it isn’t. Dog training alone can build resentment, anger, and frustration on the dogs behalf. These are more undesirable conditions which you will have to deal with when your dog begins to ‘act out’ more naughty behaviour, to alleviate its’ frustration and unhappiness. What he is trying to communicate to you? Does he have physical pain, are his energy centers Chakras blocked? Realize that your dog is going to jump at the first chance to elevate themselves in the pack the first opportunity they can because the Alpha-Pack scenario is still very active and still very fresh on their minds. (They think moment-to-moment and live in the moment only).

What about ‘Partnership” Training? Did you know that being a pack leader is fluid? There is a balance, in nature, as with your dog. Throughout our Program we offer Animal Communication Mentoring for you throughout the whole training program Free to You. In other words you learn “how to communicate with your dog” on an intuitive level and ‘relationship build’ which will bring you a successful, happy relationship with your pet for ever lasting results.

When your pet is ‘out of balance or acting out’ in behaviours that you find unacceptable, it is trying to communicate with you, help you and even heal you? How awesome is that! Maybe you are stressed and they are trying to de-stress you! When an animal takes on our stresses and they cannot readily release them the same way a human can. This stress shows up in physical problems and imbalance in the energy flow of their system. An animal can ‘literally’ take on a person’s illness and absorb the toxic energy for you. That is why The Healing Monk Dog Training prides itself in balancing You and your Pet first, then relationship build in our training. The lessons are fun! Your dog will show you aspects of itself that will have never seen before. All of a sudden it is like they have been transformed from “being in a foreign country where no one could understand them……to finding someone who finally that speaks their language”! The relief and pressure off of the animal is immense, they want to work with you, they respect you, and they are looking to You as their pack leader. Please do not let them down, remain pack leader with the fluidity it may represent, always assert yourself as a leader and your dog will respect and admire you for it.
