Just a question, I'm just curious - do you think sending vibes works? in what way - does it help the animal/person/situation? what are you thinking, feeling or intending when you send someone vibes?

I think they work as well as any placebo - they work to bring comfort which is definate though and a sense of caring and companionship to the person who may feel isolated/alone and vulnerable/frightened for their pet so yes I can't see why they don't work - do they make the vet do a better job - does the rabbit tune into them no I don't think so.

You know, I genuinely think they can work, and I always appreciate them personally.

As support for the person looking after the rabbit (or person or animal). I can't help thinking that a calmer owner is better for a rabbit as they pick up on stress.
Either way, it can't hurt.

They've certainly helped me when I've asked for them in the past - knowing other people take the time to read about one of my bunnies and take an interest in their welfare is a great support. As for the power of collective positive thought and/or magic power of vibes, err, nope.

Well I'm no expert on the subject but just from what i read about noetic sciences (in the dan brown book, the lost symbol) apparently if many people all focus on one thing for example willing someone to get better then it can actually produce a physically measurable effect (something to do with random event generators i think they were called, apparently on the days after the september 11th attacks they went haywire which was attributed to the nation, and probably half the planet, having the same thoughts etc)

Noetic scientists have also apparently been able to shape ice crystals by the power of thought :shock:

There's that thing Noel Edmonds does too which he and a lot of people swear by, can't remember what its called but he reckons his TV comeback and success is all down to whatever it is - which is essentially actively wishing in a specific way for what you want.

Don't want to start a religious debate, and personally i'm an atheist (although i fully respect other peoples choice to believe what they want to ;)) but I do believe that prayers probably do work but in the kind of way described above rather than by a god

Feet on the floor, trained in scientific discipline, I proved that a friends dog who was very attached to me, could "read my mind", & start to obey a thought command, when I had carefully ensured I was giving no body cues & she was running away from me.
There are some remarkable instances of Thumper "reading my mind" too.
So I assume that some animals, have a mode of communication of which we are unaware.

A very few people seem to have a gift of being able to communicate in detail with animals in this way over distance. Yes some people are "mistaken" that they have this gift, but the few are too accurate to be explained by chance alone.

I have noticed in a friends colony of rabbits that individuals seem to draw great strength from being groomed by others when seriously ill. It is a technique I have used with my bun.

So I think it quite possible that "messages of love & strengthening" can be somehow transmitted to our poorly buns.

Personally I say a little prayer for poorly buns, & also focus on a picture of them & talk to them mentally, lovingly & encouragingly.
Unfortunately the latter also seems to affect my own bun at times eg "vibes for poops" often results in a whole pile of poops from Thumper by my foot. :lol:
ETA Although he sometimes does single poops when very excited, hee only does a pile of them when I'm "vibing" :shock:

No, I think it's just support and empathy to help the owner. :wave:

we believe thoughts are living things!
If you focus and want something enough it can help as long as that is the devine plan. If many people focus on that thing your sending double amount of hope. Even if the outcome is death you hopefully have eased the pain a little.
Healers call vibes distant healing you focus on what you really want imagine the thing (pet/person) happy healthy and focus on positiveness to encourage the good to happen and drive the bad away.
Thats why we encourage people not to think about the bad things as then your encouraging the bad.
And if it is all a load of poop then your letting the person know that you care and thats a comfort to anyone when upset.

I personally feel they really help us and my buns wouldn't be here if it wasn't through kind thoughts from others even people who arent healers!

I always think its an offer of comfort, and letting people know they are in your thoughts and you are hoping for them to feel better soon............ they arent like reike, you need training for that I think. I hope vibes work, but I dont think they can combat everything :(

I do believe that animals are slightly telepathic but, I think when sending vibes to animals who don't know you that it is more for the benefit of the owner - I think vibes from a person to their own pet are definately able to influence the pet though and I agree that animals can read minds aswell as body language etc - my dog always knows my OH is due home at least 10 minutes before he arrives - I've tested it many times.

Very interesting opinions - I don't "believe" in vibes in the sense that it has any effect upon the animal, situation etc, but I do think that moral support and encouraging messages have a positive effect on the person who reads them, which may help them cope emotionally and/or be calmer which may help the situation.

I guess more for those that think focusing thoughts etc CAN have a direct effect, do you therefore think vibes could be dangerous? Can thinking they have an effect give people false hope? can people end up relying on vibes to help a situation? Or think if they dont get enough vibes that there is a risk there will be a bad outcome?

I think vibes of support are a good thing.

I think they work because they make the person caring for the sick rabbit calmer and more confident.

The rabbit will sense this and in turn become reassured.Also the tone of a persons voice can affect the rabbit-
so if the person is upbeat saying eg
" ooh we've had loads of good vibes for you today Jasper!" the rabbit will pick up on the upbeat tone in the voice and the smile and this will help in some way the rabbits recovery.

I also think negative vibes work the same way.

I once discussed a related topic about humans with an eminent professor of neurosciences & head of an MRC unit.
It had be found by clinical trial in USA that patients who had a religious faith & knew they were being prayed for, recovered significantly more quickly from heart attacks & major abdominal surgery. To the annoyance of 1 group, there were no differences in outcome between the major faiths!

I suggested that we were seeing a natural phenomenon. We came to the tenative suggestion that patients who were prayed for, felt less anxious. The effect on the body would be to change the metabolism from adrenalin driven tissue breakdown, to conditions favourable for tissue repair. ie we felt that relief of stress through other humans was a factor to be considered in a speedy recovery. Old fashioned nursing care & bedside manner!

I don't believe that we can change the material world simply by power of thought. It is more about changing the state of mind, & through that the body's metabolic processes.

Ditto! I appreciated the vibes sent for Benson and Lola recently!! :wave:
