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.

Happy New Year 2021!

This week begins a new year, with many new possibilities! Reflecting on 2020, I am so grateful for all my students and our Let Animals Lead® community for holding the light through these challenging times! Professionally, this past year I’ve found ways to incorporate more online learning into my programs. It’s been so enlightening to hear feedback from my students about the benefits of learning via Zoom (with lots of independent time to practice). I’ve learned a lot about how to support students through distant learning, and am so grateful to all …

It Was a Christmas Like No Other

I love this photo of Vincent all curled up for a long Winter’s nap. I think it’s a great metaphor for how many of us feel about the long-lasting effects of the pandemic: maybe we can just go to sleep and wake up when it’s over?? 🙂 Last week was the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year, and Christmas! But this year, I do feel the long nights more acutely than usual. Normally, I would be wishing all of you a fun and wondrous holiday with your loved ones, but …

The Power of Patience to Heal

I hope you all had a safe and simple Thanksgiving celebration last week. We had a wonderful, small vegan feast and visited on Zoom with extended family. It was great to see everyone, and I definitely chose to focus on the many things in my life I am grateful for. However, to be honest, now that we’re in December, looking ahead to the holidays, knowing I can’t visit family as I usually do, is a bit of a bummer. Yet with the new vaccines on the horizon, I know there’s a …

Reflecting on Debating from a Reiki Perspective

Thanks to everyone who emailed me with their thoughts and opinions on last week’s Reiki debate, “Can you learn Reiki remotely?” I learned so much from each of your comments, especially the idea that not being able to learn Reiki remotely would prevent people with chronic illness or special needs from learning Reiki at all. I heard some amazing stories of readers whose chronic pain and suffering have been helped so much by the healing benefits of Reiki, only because they were able to learn from the comfort of their own …

Reiki Debate Part 2: Can You Learn Reiki Remotely?

Thanks to everyone who emailed me your thoughts and opinions about last week’s debate topic (see Reiki Debate Part 1, HERE). I received some amazing and insightful messages from people such as: “It is hard for me to believe that a specific hand position is a prerequisite, but rather a specific ‘soul position.’ “”Yes, holding space is a very real, kind and honourable way to practice. Especially for animals in high distress or sickness.””I have found that by practicing Reiki in this way [the Let Animals Lead® method] it shifted how I …
