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.

Remembering All is Well

This past week was a very challenging one for me personally! My parents were evacuated due to the River Fire (thank goodness they are safe and were able to return to their home without damage). At the same time that was happening, a nearby sanctuary to them where my student Sherry volunteers Reiki, the Blackberry Creek Farm Animal Sanctuary, was trying to save their animals with almost no time to evacuate. (*Update, they are safe and sound, and hopefully will return soon to their land.) In addition, that same day my horse …

Which Approach Will You Use For Animal Reiki?

Today, I want to share an answer I posted on a FB group for Animal Reiki. The question was:Is Animal Reiki a specific line of Reiki or is it just any Reiki used for animals? Here is my answer, and please feel free to share: Thank you for asking this question, because it is perhaps the most important one we would ever ask. There are two approaches used in Reiki practice today, and each regards method, not essence. As far as the “essence” of doing Reiki for animals, all Reiki and Animal Reiki …

Meet My Teachers

Since I was a little girl, I always had a joy for teaching. I guess my first memorable teaching experience was helping my sister Charlotte tie her shoe. She was about 4 and I was about 8. And that was quite a challenge since I am left-handed and she is right-handed! We did it though (and I guess that was the start of never walking away from an educational challenge 🙂 ) Although I was a bit of a nerd in high school (LOL) I always managed to make friends with …
