Animal Reiki for Horses

The Let Animals Lead® method of Animal Reiki can help horses heal in many ways.

The stronger our own peaceful state of mind is, the better responses we’ll see from our horses. CLICK HERE for a guided audio course on Kathleen’s highly rated book, Heart To Heart With Horses.

Hand Positions and Animal Reiki

I’d like to talk about physical touch and the animal Reiki session, because I receive a lot of questions about this topic. People often ask me, “What are the hand positions for animal treatment”, or if they’re going to take a class they inquire first, “Are you going to teach the hand positions for dogs and cats?” Or they’ll see a photo of a Reiki session where I’m outside the kennel at a dog shelter and they’ll think it can’t be Reiki because I’m not touching the animal. Many people are …

Heart To Heart With Horses excerpt

Chapter 1: A Brief Introduction to the System of Reiki Ariel is a shy gray mare at BrightHaven Sanctuary in northern California. She was rescued from the Mexican rodeo circuit, and has many scars that bear testament to her difficult past. She is now living a peaceful life where humans require nothing from her, and she can just be a horse and live in her herd. Yet due to her history, she is extremely untrusting of humans. When she first arrived at the sanctuary, she would stand very far from my …

Equine Reiki: peaceful healing for you and your horse

Learning Reiki for your horses is learning to meditate with your horses for healing. But in a bigger sense, Reiki is a spiritual system cultivating compassionate intention, which in turn brings about healing transformation. The name Reiki, pronounced “ray-key,” comes from the Japanese words “rei” meaning spirit and “ki” meaning energy. It is usually translated as “universal life energy.” While we often hear about the surface practices of Reiki as a “hands-on healing” modality for helping our horses heal bumps and bruises, the deeper teachings of Reiki are about healing of …

Three Lessons from the Horses of Remus Memorial Horse Sanctuary

I had the great pleasure of travelling from my native California to the beautiful U.K. this past September, to teach several Reiki classes at Remus Memorial Horse Sanctuary in Essex. Remus is located on 40 beautiful pastoral acres and is home to about 200 farm animals—horses, cows, goats, sheep and donkeys (as well as the resident cats and dogs). Remus’ specialty is in caring for elder animals, and in fact, the world’s oldest horse, Shayne, 52, spends his days very happily grazing there. As an animal Reiki teacher, I find …

Meditating with Your Horse for Healing

Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor. This quote by Thich Nhat Hanh is a great reminder of the power of meditation, especially when I am with my horse and he is not feeling well. It sounds so simple, and yet in the midst of a health crisis it’s not always so easy to remember to breathe. Recently my older, retired Quarter horse, Shawnee, had fallen and was standing on three legs when I arrived, groaning with each shift of his weight. As …

Tess Tells Me What Hurts

One of my clients was a beautiful white pony named Tess. As I began the treatment, I introduced myself to Tess and explained that I would be offering her Reiki, with her permission. I stood several feet away since this was her first treatment and I didn’t want to startle her with the new sensation of the energy. After a few minutes, she approached my hands and began sniffing them. It was clear that she felt the energy and was very curious about it. Because she remained standing close to me, …

Reiki and Riding: Connections and Reflections

In my work with Reiki and animals, I have always had a special relationship with the horses I have connected with. Well, in reality this connection began long before I knew Reiki, at age 5 when I met my first horse. From that day forward I was absolutely captivated, and my life would never be the same! I am most fortunate now to have two beautiful horses, both of whom I also consider important Reiki teachers to me: one retired quarter horse, Shawnee, and an 8-year-old Paint named Kodiak. Kodiak …

Healing Your Horse With Reiki

I happened to be at the barn one day to visit another horse, when I walked by a stall and was shocked by a distraught mare literally writhing in colic pain. Apparently, the cost of surgery was too high, so the horse’s person had decided to “give her one night” to see if she could heal on her own; otherwise, she was to be put down the following morning. With permission, I took the mare out of her stall and into the arena where she could move around a bit more …
