Reiki For Animals

What Is Reiki?

hands of light

Reiki is a natural healing method thousands of years old that heals on all levels: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Reiki is Universal life force energy, that which sustains life and promotes healing in all living things. Reiki practitioners are channels for this powerful healing energy. Traditional Usui Reiki consists of three levels or degrees. A Reiki student is initiated by a Reiki master by way of attunements, which connects the new 
practitioner to the healing energy. This powerful healing method can be learned by anyone. Reiki is not a religion or religious cult. It has no dogma or specific doctrine of beliefs. A recipient of Reiki energy will receive benefits whether that person believes in the power of Reiki or not. Schedule a Reiki treatment for yourself today and experience this wonderful healing energy.

Animals can absolutely be treated and comforted with Reiki energy. No one knows exactly what an animal experiences during a Reiki session, but something in them seems to let go and relax. They normally will become very still and seem to sense that something very special is taking place, and gratefully take the energy in.

Animals respond very well to Reiki, and just like humans, Reiki can be used for all types of illnesses, injuries and emotional problems. Reiki can accelerate the healing process of animals, ease pain, and improve or help to continue their quality of life.

The healing principles of Reiki are the same whether you are treating a family member, your neighbor, a complete stranger, or an animal. The Reiki energy flows just the same in all cases. Animal anatomy is very similar to human anatomy, so you can usually judge hand positions fairly easily if you are trying to treat specific organs.

It is very unusual to encounter an animal who will not readily accept Reiki. In addition, they usually show you by their body positions where to place your hands; be aware of how they turn their body towards your hands. As with humans, if you find an area on an animal that seems to draw a lot of energy, spend more time
on that area.

For healthy animals, Reiki helps to maintain their overall health, and will enhance relaxation and promote a sense of peace and contentment.

Reiki is a safe, natural method for treating animals who are sick, and as with humans, will enhance the benefits of any other therapies or treatments the animal is receiving, as well as reduce the side effects of chemotherapy.

For animals who are terminally ill, Reiki can provide a gentle though powerful method of relieving pain, fear and anxiety, and providing peace and comfort for the animal during this difficult time.

It is always a good idea to treat an animals endoctrine glands. (Pineal and Pituitary, Thyroid and Thymus, Adrenals, Pancreas, Gonads and Ovaries). Absentee healings can be done if the animal is very restless, or seems too dangerous for a hands-on treatment. A good way to soothe an animal before  treating is to pet and softly stroke the animal. Once the animal has relaxed, follow your intuition as to the hand placements.

Reiki can delay the onset and progression of certain diseases in animals, and can energize and revitalize older animals. For dying animals, Reiki is a powerful yet gentle way to provide comfort, relief from pain, fear, and anxiety, and to ease the transition to death.

Reiki practitioners know that Reiki affects body, spirit and soul, and as such it is very good to use on pets with behavior problems or those with signs of abuse. Understand that abused pets won't usually want to be touched at first. Try talking to them in a soothing voice. Use slow movements, and try beaming Reiki to the animal. Once they feel the Reiki energy they tend to calm down, sometimes very quickly.

Pets, especially cats and dogs, will usually remain lying down during the Reiki session for as long as they need the healing. When they've had enough they usually will stand up or move away. Normally, 20 to 30 minutes is plenty for an animal.

Generally animals like being touched behind the ears, on the head, above the eyes, and under the chin, but also like to be touched on the belly, chest and back.

Following are some suggestions for treating animals:

Birds: Put your hands on the bird cage, or hold the bird in one hand with the other hand over top.

Fish: Place your hands on the fish tank.

Cats and Dogs: Place your hands behind the ears, One hand on top of the head and the other under the throat, Hands on the belly, back, hips, or specific organs. You can also treat injured or pain areas directly or through bandages.

Horses and Cows: Between the eyes, on the head, behind the ears, back, hips, the neck, and directly on injured areas and over bandages.

Zoo animals or emergency cases: If possible use hands-on treatments. If not, use distance healing.

*Reiki will also help speed the healing process for animals who have undergone surgery.*

If you have a pet, experiment with giving them Reiki. I'm sure you will find that they will enjoy the loving energy of Reiki. It's also a good way to maintain your pet's health.
