I LOVE animals! I have had animals in my life since I was a child and they have always brought me so much peace, love and joy.

When I started doing Reiki I often gave Reiki to my animals. Being able to "tune in" to their energy fields and feelings has helped me to understand what they needed and prevented medical complications. The Reiki energy and the communication I have with the animals has led me to now teach what I have learned over the past decade with others.

For me animals are sentient beings. They live their lives sensing the energy around them. Many of them are very attached to "their people" and are happy to help their human family to connect to the world in heart felt ways. Even the presence of animals can help humans to change their emotions, feelings and fears. It is no wonder to me why "Pet Therapy" has become such a highly regarded therapy.

Many of my students decide to learn Reiki to help their animals. They often report that their animals respond well and that often chronic conditions improve. The need for medication is sometimes decreased or no longer needed at all. They report feeling more deeply connected to their animals and that they intuitively understand their needs more easily. This has been my experience too! So if this is something you have been wanting to be able to do too, Reiki will help you to develop these skills.

 In my experience Reiki can help you to clear your thinking mind and to expand your intuitive listening skills. When I swam with the dolphins in the wild 6 years ago I was given a profound sonar healing and was asked by the dolphins to help the ocean and its inhabitants. I have learned since that time that Reiki energy is the perfect conduit for blessing and nourishing the water and the animals of the world. Having that feeling of being so closely connected to nature is a wonderful experience.

I learn so much from the animals. Many have much to say if we only listen with our "inner senses". I have now been called by the Grey Whales to come spend a week with them in March of 2018 at the San Ignacio Lagoon where I will work with a group of 20 Animal Communicators to see what messages they have for us. My experiences from that trip will also be incorporated into my Animal Reiki Practitioner Classes this year. I am excited to see where that will take me... If you have ever wondered how Reiki can be helpful with you animals...

Here are just a few examples of how using your Reiki energy can help you with your animals... 

On one occasion my dog Marley was acting ill when I returned home from work. When I scanned his energy field I felt he had a block in his intestine. I intuitively knew if he did not get medical care quickly he could die. I took him to our vet who did an x-ray but nothing was found. I told the vet to do surgery on him anyway because I just knew he had something in his intestine.
Luckily the vet agreed to do the surgery. He indeed had an obstruction. He had swallowed a large cloth shoestring from one of his dog toys! It was removed from his intestine and within a few days he was back to his old self.

Our dog Lucy loved to run in the park! The only problem was after a run she would sometimes begin to limp. When we took her to the vet he would prescribe her a steroid to take down the inflammation in her back leg which would help until she would run again. After this occurred several times I started to give her Reiki on her back legs after she exercised. I was so happy to see how effective this treatment was for her. No more steroids! Only Reiki and the pain and stiffness always went away within hours. Problem solved!

A friend of mine bought a horse and asked me to come give her new horse Reiki and tune in to her. As I gave her horse Reiki I felt the horse was very happy to be with her and her daughter and that she saw herself as a type of guardian and healer for the family. She has now been with them for over a year and this is exactly what she has become to them. She has helped them to heal issues of emotional pain, to be more present in their lives, and to open their hearts. While I was their that day several other owners asked me to work with their horses too. Most of the animals loved getting Reiki and many of the horses had special requests or messages for their owners too. After that day at the stables several of the owners decided to learn Reiki too so that they could develop a deeper and more intimate relationship with their animals.

I also have used Reiki when I go to Animal Rescue Facilities.  It is wonderful for me to give the animals a gift of love as they recover from their traumatic injuries or just need some compassion to relax and connect to humans in a deep healing experience. This is another way you can use Reiki in a helpful and loving way. If you have been looking for a way to help the animals learning Reiki may be just what you have been looking for.
