Animal Healing Using Reiki!
Historically, Reiki has been used mainly for human beings; however, unbeknownst to many, it has several qualities that make it an ideal therapy for animals as well. Animals, both wild and domestic are intuitive to Reiki healing and they can benefit by it in myriad ways. It can be used alongside veterinary treatment as it doesn't interfere with the process. Reiki helps speed up the course of healing, de-stresses the sick animal, easing any pain it is suffering from. The therapy is painless, stress-free and gentle, yet yields powerful results.
Being highly energetic and sensitive, Reiki works on all levels of an animal's being – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Reiki helps heal the body itself and even though there may be no physical healing, it can bring comfort and peace, easing the transition to death if an animal is dying. It is safe both for the animal and the practitioner and can be used under any circumstances.
Animals are calmed down just like humans if the hands are placed at the base of the ears near the neck. In addition to that, if they are pets, you don't have to confine animals while treating them, making it convenient and hassle-free. When working on small animals like hamsters, guinea pigs and mice, cup your hands gently around their bodies without putting any pressure, surrounding them in Reiki energy. Keep the hands just above the surface of the skin of small animals while treating them during their sleep cycles so as to not disturb them.
When treating injured birds with Reiki, place their body in one open hand and ensure that their wings are folded back against their body. Make sure their sternum is able to move about freely, as this is how they breathe. Never force an animal to sit still while you do Reiki healing on them as they have the free will not to accept it.
Always keep in mind that every animal is different and unique, and their responsiveness to Reiki would depend on their illness and personality. Most animals, especially house pets readily understand and appreciate the vibrational frequency, thereby healing our bond with them, and in the process our souls too.
