Using Reiki with animals is a way to connect with PURE LOVE. Animals have an innate sense of Reiki energy and express pure love in unlimited quantities. Sometimes it is difficult tell if you are the one giving or receiving Reiki as animals are natural healers themselves.
ANIMAL REIKI IS LOVE in its finest expression
How does Animal Reiki work? This is a question that I myself pondered for several years as I moved through the practice of sharing Reiki with humans and teaching humans to practice on one another. I 'understood' how Reiki worked with people. People come to me, ask me for Reiki and I proceed to share to it with them in a session, either in person or via distance (for more information on distance Reiki click here).
But Animals can't talk the way we can. So how do we know whether they want Reiki or not? As one of my Animal Reiki teachers, Kathleen Prasad, said, "Your animal loves you and may tolerate Reiki for a while because they do love you so much but that doesn't mean they really want it." I've been continuing to learn about Animal Reiki over the past several years and have had the good fortune of working with some great teachers like Anna Twinney http://www.reachouttohorses.com, and most recently, Kathleen Prasad https://www.animalreikisource.com
There are many great books on the subject too, along with articles and websites. And then there are the real teachers, like the four legged beauty in the photo above. There have been horse teachers, dog teachers, cat teachers, chicken teachers, and, well, you get the idea.
I've come to recognize that the approach that is most closely aligned with my heart is the Let Animals Lead® method taught by my teacher, Kathleen, mentioned above. While I respect all of those who work lovingly with animals, this approach is the one I choose to model in my approach with Animal Reiki. It does just what it says - it lets the Animal lead the session. It is always up to them, whether they wish to receive Reiki, the length of time, how close or far away they wish to be, and when the session ends. It is a very loving and humbling experience to approach Animal Reiki in this way and I would love to share it with you and your animals.
Below I have listed fees for the sessions but let this be known - I would never leave an animal (or a person for that matter) in distress if I can be of help, and for this reason I am also happy to work on a sliding scale with you to help your animal. And our sessions will always include YOU as the human companion in whatever capacity you desire. You are invited to participate in your Animal's session, learn more about Reiki by receiving a short session yourself, or whatever you need. Animal Reiki works for the whole family, not just the animal involved.
I love all animals but my passion is for horses. I was blessed to spend my younger years with horses every single day and I miss their nearness. I'd like nothing more than to climb into your pasture and spend some time with your beloved equines. Horses and I are really One so you never have to worry about that with me.
As for the beautiful guy in the photo above? He taught me about Reiki in ways that no other teacher or book or even my own experience could do. He knew more about pure love and peace and joy in the present moment than most any of us humans ever perceive. He was the first animal that I felt I could actually communicate with because when he looked deeply into your eyes, and he did, quite often, he looked straight into your soul and there was a deep understanding held there.
Cowboy is one of the reasons why I am devoting the next part of my life to the animals - to sharing blessed heart-filled space with them through the practice of Reiki, to sharing/guiding others to seeing them in their most perfect Light and learning to listen to the wisdom that is so innate in them.
He moved on from his physical body this summer and his passing left what would seem like a hole that could never be filled, but his Spirit lives on in each of us who shared life with him so strongly and powerfully. I am honored that he and my daughter allowed me to be with him in his final hours and that we could be in Reiki space together, all three of us, and that we could share his most honorable passing from a Divine spirit in a body to Pure Spirit, flying free.
Whatever your particular situation is with your animal, whether it be that they are sick, dying, having surgery, in pain, growing old, having emotional issues, or for no reason at all, Reiki can be a welcome relief, comfort, and joy for your animal to receive. Sometimes I am also asked to share Reiki remotely with animals and have worked with animals in different countries when they were sick or stressed or for some reason needed the support. Reiki is pure Love and animals love receiving it as well as sharing it back with us. I will be honored to work with you as their human companion as well, helping you to understand the process and even participate in their session, and we will discover together how to see our four legged companions and our selves in our most perfect Light!
In Person Animal Reiki session: $1 a minute with a minimum fee of $30! The reason I do it this way is because the length of the session always depends upon the animal. Sometimes animals are completely finished with Reiki in a short amount of time, like 25 or 30 minutes and sometimes they wish to receive for an hour or even a little longer. This includes travel time for me up to 10 miles. I will share with you any intuitive impressions I receive as well with your approval. I will travel further with a modest additional fee. If you bring the animal to me, the fee is the same without the travel fees.
Remote Animal Session: $40 for a 40 minute session - generally I have found with a remote session animals are happy to receive for at least 40 minutes. This includes an email follow up, along with any intuitive impressions I may receive. For more detail on how remote sessions work, go to: Distance Reiki
