Four legs, feathers or fins; all creatures have an energy body as well as a physical one. Like humans, animals also have a chakra system. Chakras are wheels of energy throughout the energy body. Chakras correspond to bundles of nerves and major organs. There are seven main chakras which align with the spine and go from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. Invisible energy called prana or life force energy flows through these chakras which keeps up vibrant, healthy and alive. If there is a blockage the energy can’t flow and the result can be health issues. Think of something as simple as your bathtub drain. If you allow too much hair to go into the drain, the bathtub will back up with water, stagnate and eventually bacteria and mold will grow.
The healing work that I do is very effective on animals as well as humans and my practice has been including more animals lately.
Last week I was called upon to work on a small dog who had ingested something poisonous. She was at the vet spending the night on IV to flush the liver of whatever the toxin was. Reiki energy healing can be sent from a distance. I don’t have to be physically present to work with a client. The first time I sent the Reiki I could feel the dog’s life force energy was very low. I had the strong visual impression of the kennel she was in and how afraid she was. I wasn’t sure she was going to survive. Two hours later I sent healing again and this time I felt a noticeable shift in her energy and the amount of Reiki that was flowing from me to her. She felt stronger and I got the sense she was going to pull through. The next morning her mom sent me an awesome picture of a happy and perky looking pup.
Recently a client asked me to work on her dog who had a complication from his neutering procedure. He had a blood clot and he was extremely swollen and in pain. The vet told her this was a dangerous situation. She brought him to me. I told her that it was my experience that dogs will lay still for about 15 minutes and then be done. I placed a blanket on the floor and laid down next to him supporting his leg so I could hover my hands over the affected area. He immediately relaxed and seemed grateful to be in a position where nothing was putting any pressure on the affected area. Like clockwork at exactly 15 minutes he stood up and was done. The next day he was so much better he didn’t need any further surgical assistance.
My favorite example of Reiki healing and animals is about a horse named Cowboy. Years ago I had two horses and Cowboy was kept at the barn where mine were. He was a champion halter horse, which meant his conformation and beauty was exceptional. He had sustained an injury to his face and damaged the nerves leaving his mouth drooping in a substantial manner. He was no longer able to be shown. One evening I came home from working my horses to make dinner for my family. Once home, I had the overwhelming feeling that I needed to get back to the barn because something was very wrong. My daughter got into the truck with me and back we went. When I got there I saw that all the horses in one paddock were covered with blood. I saw that Cowboy had gotten kicked and a major artery in his leg was cut. His large heart was pumping the blood out of this artery yards at a time spraying all the other horses. I dropped to my knees and placed pressure with my hands on the injury to compress and stop the bleeding. My daughter ran to get the barn owner to call the vet. He would have bled out as feeding time wasn’t for several hours. The vet came and stitched him up. Cowboy’s owner was out of town. Each day when I was done with my horses I would go into the stall with Cowboy to place my hands on his leg and give him Reiki. I did this for about two weeks. I happened to be at the barn when Cowboy’s owner came to see him. The first words out of her mouth were, “Oh my God, his face is fixed!” Sure enough, when I looked at him, his mouth was back to normal. The severe drooping of his lower lip was gone. She has spend thousands of dollars on modalities such as acupuncture trying to get her boy back in the show ring. The healing I had given his leg also repaired the damaged nerves in his face.
These are just a few examples of Reiki energy healing with animals. I have worked on dogs, cats, parrots, horses and even chickens.
If you have an animal in need I can work at a distance, in my office if possible or I can travel within reason.
