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.

Did you get a chance to watch my podcast last week with Nathalie Jaspar of Dive into Reiki?
This week I want to share a snippet from it with you: a discussion of the 6 pillars of the Let Animals Lead® method:
Nathalie: You actually created the Let Animals Lead® method, which has six pillars. Can you explain what they comprise?Kathleen: The Let Animals Lead® method is something that represents the evolution of my own journey. The little lessons that animals have taught me along the way.
The first pillar of this practice …

Many people see Animal Reiki as a hands-on healing modality, but I see Reiki as a meditation practice we share with our animals, and more than that: as a way of seeing the world and living with more compassion in it. One of the things I like to say to students is, “Be Reiki with your animals, don’t do Reiki to them.”
What this “being Reiki” is really about is holding an openhearted, compassionate space for your animal in this moment.
But this isn’t so easy, especially when an animal is stressed …

We do not “come into” this world; we come out of it, as leaves from a tree. As the ocean “waves,” the universe “peoples.” Every individual is an expression of the whole realm of nature, a unique action of the total universe.— Alan Watts
As we dedicate ourselves to helping the animals we cherish and the people who love them, it’s good to remember that we are all part of the same world, the same universe, the same energy. The more we realize how connected we are, the more our thoughts, …
