General Animal Reiki Articles

This page is the place for you to read about all things animal Reiki! You’ll find articles about Reiki’s healing benefits for shelter animals, how Reiki can help heal compassion fatigue in animal caregivers, and even how chocolate can teach us about animal Reiki! There are also several articles about what exactly animal Reiki “is,” including one written especially for vet techs. It’s not always easy to explain animal Reiki to others, but hopefully these articles will shed some clarity on animal Reiki’s meaning and help you in your next Reiki conversation. A common theme throughout many of these articles is the fact that Reiki starts with you, and radiates a beautiful peaceful and compassionate space that helps others to heal as well! CLICK HERE for a supportive audio course, “Heal Yourself, Heal Your Animals,” that will share important tips and powerful techniques for interspecies connection and healing.

4 Aspects of Intention in Animal Reiki

Our animals sense our thoughts and feelings easily, and sometimes they realize when we need support even before we do! How many times has your animal come to you, brought you a toy, placed their head in your hand or rubbed against your leg to help you stop for a moment and reset? As I often say in my classes, they are masters of this present moment, and we only need to learn how to listen and be with them! If we want to honor and respect their sensitivities to…

Celebrating 100 Years of Reiki

Did you know that it was 100 years ago, in March of 1922, that Mikao Usui took his trip to the top of Mt. Kurama for his 21-day fast that led to his enlightenment experience and inspired him to open up a teaching and healing center in Tokyo in April 1922? This means that it is a very special anniversary for all Animal Reiki practitioners and teachers to celebrate! I am truly so grateful each and every day that Reiki came into my life, and that the animals showed me…

The Healing Power of Twos-day, 2-22-22

Since today is 2-22-22, a date that not only falls on a “Twos-day” but also is a palindrome (read the same forwards as backwards), I thought it would be fun to take a moment and look at the spiritual significance of these numbers in relationship to our Animal Reiki practice. According to numerologist Jasmine Wolfe on the Well and Good blog, “This is the number associated with building something bigger than yourself. And it’s about what we can build when we work together.” I can’t help but think of the…

7 Life-Saving Techniques for Animal Reiki Empaths

“Sensitive people care when the world doesn’t because we understand waiting to be rescued and no one shows up. We have rescued ourselves, so many times that we have become self-taught in the art of compassion for those forgotten.” – Shannon L. Alder As many of you know, my healing journey through anxiety and panic attacks (due to my being a highly sensitive empath in the world) let me to Animal Reiki, a path that has healed me of these overwhelming and terrifying episodes. I find it so fascinating, though,…
