Animal Healing with Reiki

Animal Healing with ReikiA common question that people have, especially those who know little about Reiki, is whether it can be used to heal animals. Of course the answer is yes! Reiki can be used to treat humans and animals alike and has proven effective in treating everything from dog bites to cancer. This article will explain about animal healing with Reiki, as well as give some tips on treating animals with Reiki, including dogs, cats, horses, and more!

What is Reiki?
How Does It Work? Reiki is a type of hands-on healing that comes from Japan. A person uses their hands to channel energy, and once it is directed at another person or an animal, it helps in emotional, mental and physical healing. In Japanese, Rei means universal life force and Ki means life energy. By using these two words together you get Reiki which roughly translates to universal life force energy.

What are Chakras?
Chakras are energy vortices found along our spinal column. They run from base to crown, and each plays a unique role in supporting our mind, body, and spirit.

Reiki is an ancient Japanese healing technique that is based on channeling cosmic energy through your hands and into someone else’s body. Because it works on an energetic level, reiki works well for both humans and animals alike. People tend to associate chakras with certain colors, but as you can see in the graphic above, they actually correspond more closely to elements such as water (blue), earth (green), air (yellow), fire (red), and light (white). Many of these elements also correlate nicely with various animal species—blue and gold for fish; yellow or white for birds; red or orange for reptiles; green or brown for dogs; blue or black for cats—and therefore work especially well when treating pets. In addition to using their element-specific chakra color chart above, people who practice animal reiki can incorporate crystals into treatments as well. For example: Amethyst resonates strongly with cats. Rose quartz comforts new mothers giving birth while jade renews strength.

How to Treat Animals
One of our most vulnerable populations—and one we’re trying to make more and more accessible—is animals. Over 70% of U.S. households own a pet, and many of us spend thousands on food, medication, toys, clothes and other products to make sure they’re happy and healthy. So why aren’t we spending more time helping them heal? The good news is that there are healing modalities out there just waiting for you to use them on your pets! One such method is reiki energy therapy, which focuses on transmitting positive energy into another being in order to promote holistic health and well-being. There are dozens of ways animal lovers can apply reiki techniques in their everyday lives; here are some simple ways you can treat your favorite animal right now! #1: A Pet’s First Day It might seem silly, but sometimes knowing what to do at first can be frustratingly difficult when you get a new pet. Luckily, there are things you can do even before taking your new friend home from the shelter or store. Take some extra time to sit down (perhaps cross-legged) while holding your new pet nearby (or let it sit on top of your crossed legs). Hold its collar securely with one hand as you hold both hands above its body in parallel lines, palms facing outward. Take some deep breaths while thinking about any problems or pains it may have experienced in his previous life; imagine sending those away as negative energies flow toward and through your body until they disappear into thin air. Next, think about all the experiences it will have once he comes home; envision these bright moments as happy ones that will stay strong forever without fading away or changing.

Where to Get Reiki Training
A good place to get reiki training is by joining an online reiki training course. All reputable courses will include a section on animal healing with reiki. Our course – The Reiki Masters Training Course For Beginners will show you in detail how to apply the reiki techniques you have learnt to animal healing, pets, domestic animals and wild animals.

How Much Does it Cost?
Reiki for animals is relatively inexpensive compared to other pet-related medical procedures, such as euthanasia. However, as a type of alternative medicine, reiki for animals costs can vary from one practitioner to another. Generally speaking, if you take your pet to a veterinarian first and then a reiki practitioner second—each visit will cost around $200-$250. If you seek out both treatments at once—your total bill should be in the $450-$600 range. It therefore makes a lot more sense to learn the necessary reiki techniques yourself for a fraction of the cost and apply animal healing with reiki as and when it’s needed by your pet.

How to Start Practicing on Animals
Our pets are part of our family, and it’s likely that you want to help them if they are sick or injured. Using animal healing with reiki can do just that. It may sound strange, but animal healing through reiki is a growing practice in North America today. Animals benefit from reiki as much as humans do. You can safely treat your dog, cat, horse, or any other animal with reiki energy by following these simple steps.

Non-touch: This involves performing reiki at a distance from your pet. In most cases, non-touching will heal more than touching because we naturally project energy onto those around us, regardless of whether we are aware of it or not. Sit quietly next to your pet while sending him some good thoughts and healing reiki vibes. If you feel comfortable enough doing so, talk to him and send love into his heart space—he will feel it! The entire process should take 10 minutes or less depending on how long he is receptive to your presence.

Next Steps in Your Animal Healing Journey
Animal healing, or animal communication, is a topic that many animal lovers have at least some interest in—and for good reason. Learning how to communicate with animals and use reiki to heal your furry family members can be incredibly rewarding. If you’re hoping to learn more about animal healing, take a look at The Reiki Masters Training Course For Beginners. If you only apply the training to treating animals it’s still a wonderful ability to have and an ability that you can use over and over again to help your furry friend, other pets and even completely wild animals.

While we didn’t get into specifics regarding energy work techniques used to enhance an animal’s health in today’s post, we’ve included just a few important points here as well as reference some websites where you can learn even more if desired. Many practitioners will tell you they feel they must gain experience working with people before they feel comfortable working with animals. That said, there is plenty of energy work training available specifically geared toward working directly with animals so don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!
