In the 18th century Animal magnetism, a.k.a mesmerism, was coined by a German doctor, Franz Friedrich Anton Mesmer ( May 23, 1734 – March 5, 1815) He named his theory after himself. He believed animal energy was an invisible natural force which had influence on humans. He believed that the force could have physical effects, including healing. He tried persistently but without success to achieve scientific recognition of his theories.
The theory attracted numerous followers in Europe and the United States and was popular into the 19th century. Practitioners were often known as magnetizers. For about 75 years from 1779 it was an important speciality in medicine, and continued to have some influence. Hundreds of books were written on the subject between 1766 and 1925. Today it is almost entirely forgotten in western ideology.
Mesmerism is still practiced in some countries, but magnetic practices are not recognized as part of western medical science.Animal energy medicine has a history since the beginning of human existence on this planet. Native Americans, South Americans, European countries, China, India and Japan have consistently used Animal energy as a healing tool.
In fact, first people had daily interactions with animals, birds and creatures. They weren’t designated as ‘Wild’ or something to kill because humans designated them as dangerous or a nuisance. It was simply a juxtaposition of co-existence for their respective needs.
First people in every area of planet earth relied on animals, birds and creatures for clothing, food and some people relied on them for shelter. For example some people in the lower half of What is now called North America relied on Bison and deer skin to build their transportable homes.
Equally as important, animals, birds and creatures taught humans what berries, plants and water was safe for consumption.
The Chinese Zodiac, known as Sheng Xiao, is based on a twelve-year cycle, each year in that cycle relates to an animal sign. These signs are the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. People born in a certain animal year are believed to have attributes of that animal, which could either help or hinder a relationship. An important use of the Chinese Zodiac is to determine if (the signs of) two people are compatible, in a romantic relationship or any kind of relationship.
Last, but not least Nature’s unique energy exudes their characteristics to teach us what we need to focus on in our lives short-term or long-term.
