Taking on the pain in an empathic way is a type of healing modality. Certainly for a situation it is most appropriate to be decided by the Kundalini. There are many modalities to choose from and many mix in with others. I wouldn't expect a person to take on the pain of a burn victim for example, unless there was a safety set in place to deflect the physical waves.
Allow the K to determine the most appropriate measures to be given that will allow for the complete and joyful transfiguration within the body. Give the person in the street a healing allow the person to receive as much as is appropriate for their situation at the time.
You will feel this as knowingness and act accordingly. For all the folks who write on the list for a healing give them healings. The energy will know how much and what is appropriate. Trust. It will come from you in waves. Thru the computer through the air following theirs and your intention... ..and love.
Animals can hold the healing much better then humans typically as they do not have notions of themselves as above or below or better or worse they live in the now-ness and will receive your blessings especially love based healings. Certainly in the cases of animals being hurt by human encroachment i.e. hit by a car or shot or wounded by people in some way this is not a part of the natural environment.
20 years ago I would heal venomous spiders because I could hear them screaming. I would practice these skills on almost anything or one. I did not realize the screaming had a purpose. So be advised if you're attending a natural part of the behaviors of creatures. Sometimes pain is necessary. - blessings - chrism
