Because Reiki is simple and easy to administer, it’s a wonderful alternative therapy for animals. Reiki is non-invasive and will help healing occur where it is needed most. The Reiki Practitioner does not need to know the symptoms that the animal is experiencing in order for an effective session to be performed. Although Reiki is commonly used on humans, it can also be effectively used when working with animals.
What can Reiki do for animals?
Reiki can help to strenghten the connection between an animal and owner. Reiki can help to maintain health on Physical, Emotional and Energetic levels. Reiki can help increase an animal’s feelings of relaxation and reduce tension in anxious animals.
The animal is in control of the session. they can be in the location they choose and do not need to be confined or restrained.
With multiple sessions, animals will refine their perception of the specific frequency and will begin to seek out a session when they see the Practitioner.
Reiki can be performed succesfully from a distance, making this a safe therapy for the animal and Practitioner. Because Reiki helps increase the body’s awareness of imbalances and the body then does the healing, Reiki can never do any harm.
Animals and Vet Care:
It is always best to have the guardian of an animal gain approval from their veterinarian before starting with Reiki Healing sessions. Reiki is non-invasive and simple to administer, so approval from the Vet is usually given easily.
Veterinary records or relay the diagnosis by the vet before the session are most welcome. The information from the Vet can be helpful in monitoring the progress of the animal. The guardian can also take the animal in for check-ups with the Vet to see how things are progressing.
A Reiki Practitioner will never diagnose an animal with a condition.
What animals can receive Reiki?
All animals can receive Reiki Healing, Dogs, Cats, small pets like rabbits, Farm animals, Birds, Horses and even Wild Animals, although with the last mentioned it will mainly happen with Distance Healing.
Reiki in Shelters:
I volunteer at local Animal Shelters or Rescue Centres, so if you are connected to one and looking for an Animal Reiki Practitioner, please feel free to contact me. I will be able to help animals there on a Mental and Emotional level, as well as Energetic and Physical. These animals are much more likely to be taken in by new families and given a caring home.
Animal Palliative Care:
Our animals and pets are part of our Family. Their loyalty is strong and they take pleasure in helping and bringing joy into our lives.
When an animal is dying, Reiki can be used to help not only the animal but the family in transition with Grace and Love.
With Reiki, an animal’s symptoms can be eased while providing emotional support. Reiki may help an enimal extend an animal’s life or help the animal to pass away in Peace.
A guardian may find that performing Reiki on their beloved animal helps to bring them closer together and communicate more clearly. Reiki can help any unresolved energy heal and balance.
If it is the time for the animal to pass, Reiki can help bring Peace and ease suffering. It can help the grieving Family return to Love and Acceptance, honoring the memory and time they had with their cherished animal. By helping a dying animal to resolve any emotional or mental imbalances and release any energy that is not serving its highest good, the animal is free to transition with Peace and Love.
