8 Major Animal Chakras (and what they mean)

Why should you learn about the Animal Chakra system you ask?

The chakra system is made up of a series of energy centers throughout the body that play an important role in an animal’s overall health & well-being. When imbalances or blockages occur in these energy centers, it can result in physical, emotional, or behavioral issues. Pinpointing and addressing these can bring the animal back to a state of balance and optimum health.

While there are said to be many more chakras in & around the body, the animal system is made up of 8 major chakras. Let’s start at the top & take a look!


💜 The Crown Chakra is located at the top of the head

💜 It is associated physically with the skull & brain, cerebral cortex, central nervous system, and pineal gland

💜 The Crown relates to the “life force connection”

💜 Imbalances can manifest as grief, depression, disorientation (cognitive dysfunction), fear, separation anxiety, or general stress/tension.


🧿 Located on the front of the head, just above the eye

🧿 It is associated physically with the pituitary gland, ears, eyes, nose, and fur/skin

*These two chakras can work together to provide balance & confidence, and are especially important for nervous or anxious animals.

Animal Healing…

What actually is it? What does a Three Tree session involve? How can it help?

These are just a few of the common questions I receive on a regular basis. There are still many folks out there that simply don’t know about Reiki and other healing modalities… AND that’s where I come in! I love educating others about the power of Reiki and energy healing. Mostly because it is my passion, but also because i know what it can do.

When I started this journey, I was just looking to add another skill to my resume and implement another way to help the animals I knew. However, once I started my program, it became very clear very quickly that this was my calling. All these things began to click for me (“ohhhh, that’s what that was” or “ohhh now I know why that used to happen to me”) and I was fully immersed almost immediately. It appeared I had been doing my own versions of “healing” since I was a kid, now I was receiving the proper training to take it further.

Fast forward to the present: I have turned my passion into a full time business, helping animals to heal every day. I still can’t believe I get to do this! Each day is different & interesting. I have developed strong bonds with my clients and learn something new from each one. All while combining my passions and healing modalities to achieve the most important goal: healing animals.

So what is it that I actually do? I will admit, sometimes this is the hardest thing to explain to pet parents. Outwardly, there sometimes isn’t much going on during a session….the animal just sleeps, they run & play, they want to sit on the other side of the room. Other times, the animal will curl right up in my lap or push a certain area of their body into my hand for more attention. But it’s what’s going on energetically, physically, and emotionally that’s important. First and foremost, I don’t like to refer to myself as a “healer”. I prefer to call myself a “healing facilitator”. The body of an animal has the ability to heal itself – I am the one that helps that body return to a state of balance so that it may do so. Energetic blockages or imbalances within the body can wreak havoc on physical, mental, and emotional health. Using Reiki (healing) energy, I find these blockages and release them so that balance can be achieved. Other therapies can also be added in to amplify healing such as crystal therapy & aromatherapy.

What makes a Three Tree session unique is my holistic “Balanced Pet” approach. I like to look at all aspects of the animal’s life: medical history, training, home environment, nutrition, age, etc. to formulate the optimal treatment plan. We can address all areas and pinpoint issues or look into alternatives that may improve quality of life. I believe that each animal is unique and therefore, their treatment should be unique as well.

“How it is that animals understand things I do not know, but it is certain that they do understand. Perhaps there is a language which is not made of words and everything in the world understands it. Perhaps there is a soul hidden in everything and it can always speak, without even making a sound, to another soul.”

― Frances Hodgson Burnett
