What is Animal Reiki ?
One of the things about Reiki that is so wonderful for the animals is that you absolutely don’t need physical contact or touch and it is totally gentle and non-invasive. So when we talk about animals that are sick or have been traumatized or abused or have some issues that they need healing with, Reiki can address all of these issues – physical, mental, emotional, spiritual. Whatever the issues are, Reiki can address them all from a gentle, non-invasive space.
I think of Reiki as more of a meditation that we do with our animals rather than an active treatment that we are doing to our animals. It is very different from many other holistic modalities because of its very passive and gentle nature.
So it makes it ideal for animals that have been traumatized, that are wild but in captivity like exotic animals in enclosures. You can even offer Reiki in nature to wild creatures such as some nearby deer that are grazing. And we can also use Reiki for domesticated animals in our homes or the homes of friends.
It is such a beautiful way to connect to another species – seeing the animals at a deeper level. When you connect in the Reiki space with another being you see that we are all the same and we are all connected and we are all one.
