Reiki for Our Furry, Feathered and Scaly Friends
Developed in the early 1900s by Japanese Buddhist Dr. Mikao Usui, Reiki means Universal Life Force Energy, the essence and energy of all beings. Reiki promotes health and well being in pets, farm and non-domesticated animals.
All two foot, four foot, no foot, furry, feathered and scaly loved beings: every bird, cat, chicken, deer, dog, duck, ferret, fish, fox, frog, giraffe, goose, goat, guinea pig, hamster, horse, lizard, llama, pig, rabbit, raccoon, skunk, snake, squirrel, turtle, wolf and all the other wonderful beings we share our lives and planet with can benefit from Reiki’s healing power.
Sessions can be in my studio or at a home, farm, or preserve. Please note the space needs to be comfortable and free from as many distractions as possible. Animals are most receptive when they aren’t hungry. Just like humans more than one session may be necessary to heal or resolve the issue.
Reiki can help:
changes in temperament
A Session Unfolds:
talk for bit about the issue
clear and ground the space
call in Reiki energy
introduce myself to your furry, hairy, feathered, scaly friend
ask if s/he would like a Reiki session (some may choose not to have a session at that time)
choose where s/he wants to physically be in the space, may be right next to me, a foot away or the other side of the room
may change positions during the session
scan the body to find sensitive areas
treat the entire body
spend extra time on sensitive, injured areas
lay my hands gently on the body, a few inches above, or from across the room
lasts 15 – 50 minutes depending on the animal’s needs and desires
clear signal when finished (our cat will get up, stretch and walk away, our chickens squawk and puff up their feathers, horses often just shake their head)
clear and ground
talk about the session and what you can do to continue the healing process
