Our dog sleeps on the bed, and I have permanently open portals to all kinds of beings/realms, including demonic, in the same room.
That demonic element is new-ish, insofar as it’s only been the last few years I started working with entities labelled as such - before that it was usually nature spirits, gods, deceased people, and the kind of beings you meet with spiritual healing and so on, but I had stayed away from the Xian-style designated demonic (though it’s also relevant to state that some may have been known to me under other names/masks, prior to this).
Our dog is old, previously had been abused, and is very sensitive, but he seldom cares that much - all spirits I work with, if there seems to be the slightest chance of a problem, I do so ONLY under the condition they protect his safety as they would my own, because IMO pets are basically family, part of the unner circle at that, so I ask them to treat him as such.
He’s occasionally started getting weirded out, off the top of my head these are the main things that bother him:
1/ when I do DEEP trance journeying, and appear (according to human observers) to be basically dead, obviously still breathing but like there’s “no-one there” - he’s not a fan of that at all.
That’s been an issue with a lot of pets, ours and when I’ve done healing journeys for people with their pets in the room - they don’t always dislike it, but they do usually react in some way;
2/ when I conceived a (spirit) Child with a demon, I think because of the transgressive nature of taking living seed (which looked like a kind of plasma) from a demonic King, and bringing it to this realm to create a demonic new life within me - I posted about it here, the relevant part is this:
"As the day progressed, I felt the air in the room beginning to thicken – the blinds were drawn, TV and computer off, and I had just one lamp burning in a corner on the floor.
In the next hour or so, my dog was becoming restless so I shooed him into another room, and tried to stay calm and focused. It started feeling kind of like the dentist’s waiting room, in hell."
I’ve already placed wards around the second bed he has out back, and I sent him through for this and also, during some of the work I did with Ahriman & Azi Dahaka, which was similarly brining a very heavy and dark feel that he didn’t like. I haven’t worked explicitly with Qliphoth energy though, so I’m not sure whether the two things have anything in common;
3/ any kind of work where I do NOT want to be distracted at all, again he goes through to the back with wards, and some extra food or something.
Other than that, I’ve evoked demonic Kings, gods, deceased people, La Santisima Muerte, and all kinds of other spirits with him right on the bed next to me (I’m lazy and work from our bed a lot!) and he’s been fine with it, but like I said, he’s considered family so I ask spirits to undertake to basically not interact with him in any way.
It’s possble that because he was in such a bad situation before, and because all the time we’ve had him, I’ve been doing weird stuff (my old man’s a chaos mage and doesn’t work in the same manner, with spirits as real evoked entities and portals and so on) so he just accepts it, it’s not harming him and he never knew a different more normal kind of life without portals and stuff.
You may be able to create a talisman for your dog/s collar? I haven’t done that recently, because it didn’t feel necessary, but I know some healers in England who created various small charms for their pets so that any negative energies didn’t go near them - this is especially useful if your furry pal’s elderly, frail, sick, pregnant, or recovering from surgery (like neutering).
One very useful thing is to form a working relationship with the Higher Self of the animal - you may not be able to converse with their daft everyday self, but their Higher Self will be able to communicate with language, symbols, and/or gestures, and understand concepts.
You will also, in my experience, save yourself a small fortune in vet’s bills for tests, because the HS can usually tip you off on what’s wrong with the animal, and then you tell a small white fib that an out-of-town vet had diagnosed X as the problem, and suggested starting treatment, or at least testing, there - I see this small deception as more positive and benevolent than making a sick animal undergo what are often invasive tests, with general anesthesia and a night in a cage at the vet’s, when you can just ask the HS what’s hurting and what systems are affected.
(Bit off-topic to what you’re asking, but this has helped us a LOT, vets are fumbling round in the dark and we can help them with that kind of knowledge.)
Other random things you didn’t ask - we switched to mostly-raw meat, with a grain-free supplement last year, and his breath and overall condition improved a lot, there’s a lot of fuss online over feeding raw (akin to the human vegan vs. paleo palaver) but at the very least, look for the highest quality dog-foods, which will not always be the ones marketed the most - some of the smaller companies that make excellent food don’t have the budget of animal-torturing big players like Proctor and Gamble, aka IAMS. Searching round online should get you some useful suppliers in your area.
And please research the issue of over-vacconation - I’m not an “anti-vaxxer” across the board, but they are way over-used, it’s a known problem in cats that vaccination-site tumours occur, for example, and an Italian study also states that dogs are affected in the same way (do a search for “tumour” in this page).
This is an actual vet talking about the problem, from that link:
Mike Kohn, DVM: “In response to this [vaccine] violation, there have been increased autoimmune diseases (allergies being one component), epilepsy, neoplasia [tumours], as well as behavioural problems in small animals.” (13)
Also written by a vet:
This is also really sensible:
The World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA), the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) have announced publicly that annual vaccination is unnecessary and can be harmful.
But they do nothing to stop vets from vaccinating more often than necessary.
If your worried your dog is being over vaccinated, we have a free download you can print and bring with you to the vet. It outlines the immunity research by Dr Ronald Schultz and it will help you and your dog’s veterinarian come to a healthier vaccination schedule together.
In my years of veterinary practice, I’ve witnessed hundreds of cases of serious vaccine damage to pets, including death.
Despite what your veterinarian may tell you about the safety of vaccination, I’ve seen it cause dangerous, sometimes deadly, vaccine reactions and lifelong chronic illness … including autoimmune diseases and cancer. Click here to grab the Vaccine Guide now.
Vaccines Are Risky
Vaccinating annually is an extremely high-risk procedure … and it doesn’t make your dog any more “immune” from disease.
Yet in the US, about 60% of veterinary clinics completely ignore this research (and their association recommendations) and still push their clients to vaccinate their dogs annually.
^ That last link has some really useful links and data. We don’t have mandatory rabies shots here, but afaik there’s an option to get this every 3 years, not every year, and again that’s something to research.
Past that, if you search over-vaccination dogs you’re going to get the usual range, from vets greedily eyeing the annual income, to really fringe sites claiming all kinds of things, but please do research the topic, and see if you can find a vet who’ll offer antibody titre tests (spelled titer as well, esp. in the USA), to check if immunity is still present, before submitiing your pup’s body to an annual onslaught.
These have been the hard-learned lessons of several generations of pet owners in my family and immediate circle of friends, many of whom had pets that developed tumours at the usual vaccination sites, or auto-immune dieases, and the heartbreak (plus cost, disruption of life, sleeplessness, and expense) of a sick pet are best avoided, even if it seems a lot of hassle upfront!
I LOVE dogs (cats as well, in fact all critters) so apologies for the essay, I wish I had known some of these things when I first got a dog, and that my parents had as well.
