Blessing must arise from within your own mind. It is not something that comes from outside. When the positive qualities of your mind increase and the negativities decrease, that is what blessing means. The Tibetan word for blessing … means transforming into magnificent potential. Therefore, blessing refers to the development of virtuous qualities you did not previously have and the improvement of those good qualities you have already developed.

Animals can sense Spirits
And they can sense fear. I have hiked and mountain climbed around Alaska without a gun passing Mama Grizzleys with her cubs and other "dangerous" animals and experienced only peace to them and from them.
