Quite early in my healer development, at a time when the concept of healing energy being able to transcend time/space barriers was still quite new to my consciousness, I received a telephone call from my dear friend Hannah, who had moved with her family to live in Cornwall the previous year. The move had enabled Hannah to purchase a horse for her daughter, and so Moonlight had joined their family life some five months beforehand. Hannah had been looking for a horse that she could share with her daughter, who had seen the advert for Moonlight in a local trade it. At her daughter’s insistence, Hannah agreed to view the horse and then purchased her partly out of sympathy because Moonlight was in a poor condition at the time and was being kept in dubious surroundings.
Hannah telephoned me for a chat because although Moonlight had passed a vet at the time of purchase, in the five months of new ownership she had been intermittently lame, and at the time of Hannah’s phone call she was nine tenths lame in the off hind leg, just barely putting a toe to the floor. Hannah told me that visits from two separate vets and two separate chiropractors had failed to conclusively pinpoint the problem. Hannah was worried that she had bought a “duff” horse.
At a loss to know what to suggest, I heard myself explaining that I had taken on a new hobby recently, and that I was learning about spiritual healing. I asked Hannah if I might practice my distant healing on Moonlight. Clearly sceptical, but very trustingly, Hannah agreed that I could do so, and she also agreed to post me a photograph of Moonlight to help me with the process.
The following Friday evening the photograph had not yet arrived but I had a quiet space for myself and so I decided to try out some distant healing for Moonlight without it. I settled down to attune to the healing source and I immediately received a very clear image of a speckled grey mare with a distinctive shaped head. I perceived this image to be Moonlight and I asked her permission to send her some distant healing. “No.” I was abruptly told by the horse, and the image before my eyes promptly disappeared into a flash of white light, to be immediately replaced by a “download” of clear information about my friend Hannah, detailing some particular problems that were occurring in her new life and including what Moonlight recommended that she could do about those problems.
In addition, Moonlight told me that she was an old soul mate of Hannah’s who had come into her life at this time to help Hannah with her life changes and she also told me very decisively that it was Hannah that needed to receive the distant healing and not herself.
Feeling totally unsure as to what I could actually do with all this information, I thanked Moonlight, closed the healing session and went to bed.
The following morning post brought me Moonlight’s photograph and the image of her was exactly the same as the one I had perceived the evening before. Realising that this was verification of the information that I had received from Moonlight herself, I knew then that I had to take some action. I detailed the experience as clearly as I could in an email that I sent to Hannah, together with a request for myself to send Hannah some distant healing.
In a telephone call later that evening Hannah told me that she had visited Moonlight on the Saturday morning as usual and that she was at that time still nine tenths lame. Hannah had opened and read my email to her in the early afternoon of that day, and although she understandably felt very incredulous, she recognised that the points raised by Moonlight were relevant to her situation. She revisited Moonlight later that day to find that her horse was almost sound. Amazed, Hannah mentioned that she would act on Moonlights recommendations and also said that she would accept some distant healing for herself.
I continued with my distant healing practice and one week later Hannah telephoned me again to say that Moonlight was sound and that her daughter was now able to ride her. I received this wonderful news with some amazement myself.
There were many profound lessons for me with this healing experience. It taught me total trust in the power of long distance healing and communication. I learned about the lengths that all animals are prepared to go to in order to help their human counterparts. I learned about how deeply animals understand and care about our frail human issues, and that they can absorb and carry our emotional pain to a point of becoming physically disabled themselves. Best of all, I learned that I have the ability to realise my personal dream of working as an animal healer and communicator.
