The Art of the Perfect Animal Reiki Session

What qualities create the ideal Animal Reiki session where animals are honored as equal partners and allowed to lead their own healing process? I know what I’ve found to be most important, and I’ve shared it with you here on this special infographic. I’ve created this as a special gift to encourage and inspire you! As you can see, my idea of a “perfect” session isn’t about expectations of how the animal should behave or focused on specific healing outcomes. It’s not focused on hand positions or traditional practitioner protocol. Rather, the …

Learning to be animal-centric in my approach to Reiki

Who are the animals who teach you the most about Reiki? My very first Reiki teacher was my sweet dog, Dakota – an Aussie-mix and the smartest dog I’ve ever known. In those days, I only knew how to share Reiki from a “human-centric” approach. In other words, I tried to use hand positions and focus on problem areas the way I did with myself and with my human friends. Dakota and other animals, such as the shelter dogs I was volunteering with, often walked away from me or showed discomfort when …

My Journey with Reiki

I learned to practice Reiki in 1998. When my dog Dakota came over and sat on top of my feet during my first Reiki self-treatment, I had two incredible realizations: 1) Dakota liked the feeling of Reiki so much that he couldn’t bear to be even one foot away from me as I practiced. 2) Dakota seemed to be able to tune into the healing power of Reiki, without my having to “give” it to him. It was as if he was already fluent in a language much too subtle for me …

The Radiance of Reiki: Simple Ways to Heal with Your Dog

The radiance of Reiki: simple ways to heal with your dog

The word Reiki can be translated as “true self,” which points towards our inner power of compassion. One of the misunderstandings of the way Reiki works is that we, as practitioners, are somehow “doing” the healing “to” someone else; however, from a traditional viewpoint, Reiki is seen as a path to rediscover our own inner self-healing power, which when practiced, can create a certain radiance of healing around us, from which others can benefit. Because dogs are so sensitive to our inner states of mind and heart, they can become easily …

How Reiki can help your dog fight cancer

Unfortunately, cancer is an all too common health issue in dogs. After supporting my dearest dog Dakota through lung cancer, I learned the troubling statistic that half of all dogs over the age of 10 will be diagnosed with cancer! (source: http://pets.webmd.com/dogs/guide/dogs-and-cancer-get-the-facts) Besides all the physical struggles that cancer and its treatment brings, there are also so many emotions we have to navigate through: fear, worry, anger and more. The healing system of Reiki is a strong ally in the fight against cancer, not only for the dogs we love, but also …

5 Ways Reiki can benefit your senior dog and you

If you’re like me, your dogs have always been, from childhood through adulthood, the loves of your life and at the center of your heart! They never live long enough, and as they get older, it can be hard to admit that they are indeed “seniors,” entering their twilight years. Older dogs often develop certain chronic conditions, and besides finding the support of a caring, holistic vet, sharing Reiki meditations with your dog can help the both of you navigate the twists and turns of your aging dog’s health journey. …

New Beginnings: 3 Reiki Techniques to Help A New Dog Join the Family

I remember so clearly that day, Mother’s Day 2011: the day that we adopted our dog Mystic from her foster home, at the tender age of just six weeks. Her pregnant mother had been rescued last minute from euthanasia at a shelter somewhere in Utah. Mystic’s mother and her nine puppies had ended up at a cattle dog rescue here in California, and were listed online at petfinders. She was such a baby, just four pounds (she is now forty pounds!). I knew it must feel so strange for her …
