A great many people feel the healing power of animals, which express love unconditionally and often comfort us when we are fearful or not feeling well.
Without a doubt, the most enlightening and moving experiences I’ve had, was when sharing Reiki with an animal.
Animals have the natural ability to completely surrender themselves, and simply trust that they will recieve what is needed.
And this, is when Reiki shows it’s true power.
All animals can be treated with Reiki – BIG and small.
I’ve shared Reiki with cats, dogs, birds, frogs, and squirrels (even bugs!). I knew of a practitioner in Florida, who worked primarily with horses. And to watch her work, was truly amazing. She never actually touched them. She would hold her hands about 5 feet from their body, simply allowing them to draw in what was needed. And to witness the horses reaction, was a sight to behold!
Whether sharing with a person or an animal, Reiki can be applied either hands-on or hands-off. I have found with cats, being ultra-sensitive to energy, if I start with my hands off, and then slowly move them in to an actual touch – they seem to respond better.
It’s funny, an animal will always let you know when it has had enough – it will simply, get up and move away.
Just as with people, Reiki can be used for all types of physcial and emotional issues concerning an animal.
*Pre & Post-operative proceedures
*Physical or emotional trauma
*For aches and pains
*Through giving birth
* Through death
Throughout the lives of both my cats, up to their senior years, and even as they were passing – Reiki provided them and myself, with tremendous support, comfort, and love.
Being a “hard-core” alternative health believer, I honestly don’t know what I would have done without Reiki.
Sharing Reiki with the animal kingdom, always strengthens and reminds me of our “healing connection” with all living things.
So, thank you Reiki!
And be well….precious animals!
