Animal Reiki – Having a Flexible and Adaptable Mindset

One of the most fundamental aspects of being an Animal Reiki practitioner is to be truly flexible with each session. After all, there are so many varied animals with which one can work and each session is so very unique. Even different sessions with the same animal can be totally varied.

The most significant point […]

Animal Reiki – Saving My Injured Semi-Feral Cat

It was June of last year and my partially-tamed feral cat, Grady, had experienced a puncture wound just under his tail, close to his rear end. I had noticed it and kept an eye on its progress of healing, doing Reiki for it when both time and cat permitted. At one point, it looked like […]

Animal Reiki – Tuning in on a Soul Level

It is such a beautiful healing connection when you can truly tune in to your animal on a soul level — or as close as possible to this. It is easier to do this if you can genuinely release the outcome of the Reiki session that you are offering.

Simply ask your animal to take […]

Animal Reiki – Be Present and in the Moment

During any Reiki session it is essential to keep focused on your client or the recipient of the healing energy. However, with human clients, they are not apt to jump up and run away or nip you or go look for food during a session. When offering Reiki to animals, it can be a completely […]

Animal Reiki – Remaining Calm, Centered and Patient During a First Session

When a human client visits for a session, they lay down on the Reiki table, ready, willing and open to receive the flow of healing energy. Though each treatment session is somewhat unique, most sessions have a similarity to one another. And I know with much certainty that the person will remain on that table […]

Animal Reiki – Preparation Before A Session

It is such a radiant benefit to fully prepare oneself in advance of an Animal Reiki session — to begin to set the atmosphere into a space of healing.

Of course, if you are offering Reiki to your own pets, this doesn’t fully apply, but it’s a great help if you are going to a […]

Animal Reiki – Offering Healing Energy to Your Own Pets

Animal Reiki for one’s own beloved pets is quite a different thing from offering healing energy to a wild, feral or aggressive animal. With your own creatures — who are pretty much family to you — you can be more confident and certainly not have to worry about safety, unless your pet is a recently […]

Reiki for a Cat Hit By a Car

It had been a busy day — with my monthly Healing Circle (which runs several hours) in the morning, and then a 20 mile round-trip visit to a canine Reiki client for a full session with him. My Reiki tasks completed, my husband and I went for a very late afternoon workout at our gym, […]

Reiki for a Semi-Feral Cat In a Hurricane

Grady on a previous visit, all curled up on the sofa!

The storm named Irene swept through Long Island with powerful winds and pelting rain. I was awakened at 4:30am by the sounds of no electricity, meaning the air conditioner and fans had turned off and the house was getting uncomfortably warm.

By 8:00 […]

Animal Reiki – Assessing the Situation and the Space When Treating Small Animals

One of the most essential keys to an effective Animal Reiki session is to have the mindset of being truly open and flexible. Each session and each animal can be so completely different. With people Reiki, it is much more routine — a client shows up, lays down on the Reiki table and receives a […]
