Your Cat and Dog's Chakras


Like us your pet's body is not just physical, it's made up of energy with spiritual awareness and chakras are major energy centres running through their body that helps in the absorption and distribution of energy throughout the body. 

Using the energy of the chakras can form part of an holistic approach to healing your pet's emotional and mental health.

Pets are incredibly susceptible to the energies around them and live with a different level of vibrational energy than humans, click here to read more. Working with your pet's chakras to get them open, flowing, and in harmony, can go a long way towards helping your pet recover from physical traumas and emotional ones, as they work on a basic instinctive level.

Animal Chakras

Animals share the same 7 major chakras as us:- 

1. Root Chakra - deals with survival and grounding. If this is out of balance or blocked it tends to show through nervousness or fear or a strong flight reaction in your pet. It can also be expressed in the body through issues with weight such as overeating or being underweight, irrespective of diet.

2. Sacral Chakra - deals with feelings and sexuality. This often shows as an imbalance through unexplained restlessness, or just not being able to settle.

3. Solar Plexus - deals with feelings of goodness and sense of self. If this is out of balance or over-active it can come out as anger, aggression, withdrawn, dejected, and no sense of playfulness.

4. Heart - is the connecting chakra between the lower and upper chakras and principally deals with caring, compassion, and empathy. Their pack and hierarchy within the pack. When this is not fully opened or it's unbalanced, it can lead to jealousy, possessiveness, emotional grief or separation anxiety, and just a general unwillingness to interact with other cats or dogs around them.

5. Throat - this chakra controls communication, the thyroid, and the endocrine system. If this is out of balance it can oftentimes be displayed as excessive vocal communication in your cat or dog such as mewing and whining, inability to listen to commands, ignoring you when called, etc., just issues around communication in general. 

6. Third Eye - relates to their acceptance of themselves. If this is not open, out of balance, or blocked it can often be displayed as easily distracted or distant. It can physically present as problems with headaches and bad eyes.

7. Crown - this is the chakra that connects to spirit. When this is out of balance or not open it can often be displayed as depression and dis-engaged with the environment around them.

They also have an eighth chakra which is super important and totally unique to animals. 

The Brachial Chakra of Cat's and Dog's

8. The Brachial chakra - this is located on their shoulder area on both sides, and provides the balance for human-animal connection and interaction.

It's so powerful and important that it's actually the major central chakra for all chakras in an animal's body. If a pet isn't connecting well with the people around or doesn't like to be touched then this chakra is probably out of balance or blocked.

Any type of healing should always start with the Brachial Chakra in order to open up the flow of energy for healing the body, re-balancing all the chakras and restoring a healthy human-animal connection.

They both also have 21 minor chakras and bud chakras.

The minor chakras are found around the body and include things like the tip of your dog or cat's ear, the nose, the tail, etc.

The bud chakras are more important as they are located in the pads of the paws, and at the base of the ear as it opens out from the head. These bud chakras allow the pet to ground itself and pick up on the energies from the earth, such as changes in the weather, thunderstorms rolling in, etc. and they form part of their primary receptors for their natural survival instinct.

Using Crystals for Your Pet's Chakras

Using crystals is a great way to boost, open or unblock any of the chakras in your cat's or dog's body.

Before using the crystals for healing, you need to make sure they are "cleansed"  so they are "pure and clean"  for use and to eliminate any past energy they may have absorbed through sitting on a shelf, in a shop, past use, etc. 

Not all crystals can be cleansed with water so check beforehand, but one of the simplest and purest ways to re-energizing your crystal for healing is to place it in a glass of water and leave it out for one or two nights so it can absorb the energy of the moonlight. You can also do this using the energy of the sun. 

If the crystal can't be placed in water then leave the crystal on a windowsill that will give it maximum exposure to either sunlight or moonlight. (If you live near the sea, use seawater instead of purified water).

It's good to get into a habit of regularly cleansing your crystals to keep them as pure as possible.

Using Massage or Reiki to Help Align Your Pet's Charkas

If you don't want to use crystals with your pet's chakras you can do some simple massaging to help open up and balance the chakras. Click here to begin with Reiki.

For a massage, locate each chakra using the diagrams above.

Start with the Brachial Chakra as it's the link to all other Major chakras and is the centre for the animal-human bonding. Using the pads of both your thumbs gently massage around the shoulder in circular movements moving the energy outwards over the shoulder joint. Then move to the root chakra and start working you're way through the chakras using the circular technique.

The pressure should be no more than as if you were massaging a one year old baby, so the pet should feel it but it shouldn't be a deep tissue massage unless you're experienced in animal deep tissue massage therapy. Remember animals are incredibly susceptible to the energies so a light massage is normally enough to begin re-balancing the chakras.

Once you've worked your way through the chakras or just worked on a few that are out of flow, it's a good idea to ground your cat or dog afterward with these four simple steps

1. Gently run your index and middle finger from the tip of your cat or dog's nose up the middle of their forehead then over their head, opening up your hands to take the energy out to the tips of their ears flicking out any unwanted energy.

2. Gently run your index and middle finger from the tip of your cat or dog's nose up the middle of their forehead then over their head, going around the backs of the ears this time and opening up your hands to take the energy out onto their shoulder blades, then down to the tip of the front paws. Hold for a few seconds then flick away any negative energy.

3. As above but you'll bring your hands as far as the hind legs going all the way down to the tips of the back paws.

4. Lastly and this should always end any chakra session, is to run your hands from the tip of the nose, following the line of the spine to the tip of the tail and flick out any unwanted energy from the tip of the tail. Depending on how your pet is responding, it's nice to work hand over hand and repeat this three times.

Using Essential Oils for Balancing Animal's Chakras

Essential oils used through a water-based diffuser can also help with re-balancing your pet's energies. You can have this on throughout the day or use them only whilst doing your chakra healing. 

Please read how to properly use essential oils with your pet before starting as they are incredibly powerful so they can be toxic for your pet if not used correctly or if you're not using a high-quality oil. 

Essential oils should never be applied topically to cats and only to dogs if they want it - you'll know they'll want it applied topically if they try to lick the bottle. 

Have the room ventilated so your pet can move away from the oil if it becomes too much. 

Cats and dogs are so instinctive when it comes to their energies that you'll quickly see your pet working with the oils by either moving closer or further away depending on their need.

  • Root Chakra  - use Sandlewood or Frankincense 
  • Sacral Chakra - use Rosemary, Bergamot or Sandlewood
  • Solar Plexus Chakra - Basil, Lemon, Ginger, Fennel, Bergamot
  • Heart Chakra  - Sandlewood or Sage
  • Throat Chakra - Lavander or Bergamot
  • Third Eye (Brow) Chakra - Peppermint or Sandlewood
  • Crown Chakra - Frankincense or Lavander

Using flower Waters for Balancing Pet chakras

  • Root Chakra - Apple Blossom, Rose, Sweet Chestnut, Oak or Olive
  • Sacral Chakra - use Hibiscus, Iris, Mimulus
  • Solar Plexus Chakra - Dandelion, Evening Primrose or Sweet Pea
  • Heart Chakra - Apple Blossom, White Magnolia or Lavender
  • Throat Chakra - Morning Glory, Violet or Lilac
  • Third Eye (Brow) Chakra - Cat's ear, Queen of the Night or Passion Flower
  • Crown Chakra - Orchid, Lotus, Cat's Ear or Fig

Some of the best ways to open up or re-balance chakras for either yourself or your pet can be through using crystals, massage, essential oils and flower essences.
