The spiritual practice of Reiki has taken the world by storm! People everywhere are looking for other outlets to heal their physical and emotional pain, and are rejecting the lifestyle of overmedicating ourselves. People don’t only want to cure the pain physically, but heal emotionally, and prevent it from ever happening again. If this sounds like you, Reiki could be the answer you are looking for. Around the world, people are raving about the results of Reiki, but what about pets? Recently, Reiki masters have opened their doors to our beloved animals, to heal their pain, and work through behavioural issues.
Reiki is an alternative healing method for those suffering from physical and/or emotional pain. Reiki practioners believe that everyone has the ability to harvest and control energy. Vital and spiritual energies can be channeled, through western Reiki teachings, and through the use of a Reiki master’s hand positions, you can channel the energy to the patients seven chakras, or the source of their pain. Reiki takes into account the physical pain, the source of the physical pain, whether it is from injury or emotional pain causing a physical malady, and past behaviours. The healer then discusses all the sources with the patient. Many people are very confident in Reiki healing then with modern medicine. Modern medicine heals the physical pain, sometimes with side effects, where as Reiki is holistic, natural, and heals not only the pain, but attempts to stop the problem from happening again.
Reiki for pets follows suit as Reiki for humans. All living things have charkas, and as our pets age, get injured, are dying, or have had an abusive past, Reiki is an alternative medicine to aid in the healing of our pets. Pets with cancer can use Reiki as tool to ease the pain from the side effects of modern medicine treatments. Owners who have adopted abused pets can use Reiki to help their pets cope with their past and new lifestyle. Owners also swear by Reiki because it helps their pet deal with behavioural issues, such as aggression, house hold “accidents”, or relaxes them to be more susceptible to understanding and learning new commands.
For a dying pet, Reiki can help the dog or cat ease into transition into a more painless death. Reiki also gets rave reviews for helping arthritic patients, pets with a physical ailment, pets with behavioral problems and pets who need relaxation techniques.
In a world where there are more alternatives to our physical and emotional maladies, the healing hands of Reiki offers another option to help our pets cope with behavioural issues, physical pain, disease, and emotional stress. Both owner and pet learn more about each other through Reiki sessions, and therefore the owner can address their pet’s needs with more accuracy. Language may be a barrier between pet and owner, but Reiki can provide a bridge and open up the channels of communication, through the improvement of mind and body.
