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.

Reiki Debate: Is Animal Reiki a Thing?

In the spirit of the season of debate, I’ve been thinking about some of the more heated Reiki discussions I’ve been a part of over the years. Over this week and next, I’ll discuss a couple of contentious topics in the Reiki community. Debate and discussion can actually be a good thing, because it gets multiple ideas out there for contemplation, and it can create more understanding in a world of increasingly polarized views. Plus, without debating and challenging old ideas, our world would never advance. The negative side of debate is …

Bright Dreams and Smoky Sunsets

It’s been tough lately, friends, I’ll admit it. Northern California has been suffering from the most devastating fires. Our ancient and beautiful forests and all the animals within are being lost, and so many of my students, friends and even some family members have been impacted. The air has been so thick with smoke, we’ve been trapped indoors (except for the outdoor animals like my dear horse that must breathe in the ashes with no relief.) So much loss, and all this on top of the pandemic. I send Reiki love, light …

From Fearful to Fearless: The Healing Power of Metta Meditation During Cancer Treatment

Originally published on the Levekunst blog, this article illuminates one of my life experiences that inspired the 4th Pillar of the Let Animals Lead® philosophy: “Teaches meditation as the way of compassion.” My meditation practice deepened and changed immensely during the time of my breast cancer treatment. I’m so grateful to have had meditation as an anchor to keep me stable during those rough times. Learning how to focus on serving others and sharing loving-kindness, even when I was at my weakest, helped give comfort, meaning and strength to my healing …

COVID-19 Health and Safety Tips for Animal Reiki Practitioners

Stay safe: use social distancing practices and stay outside when possible. Be an example: wear a mask.  Meditate with your animals every day. Support others through distant healing and online shares.  Take time in nature and eat healthy! The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting the lives of people (and subsequently, their animals) all over the world. Although areas most affected are constantly evolving and changing, because we are so connected throughout the world, safe behavior cannot and should not be minimized or ignored, no matter where we live. As Animal Reiki practitioners and/or teachers, we have …

Peace, Justice and Animal Reiki

Here in the USA and across the world, we are going through a painful time. It seems that more and more of the shadows of society are being dragged into the light so that we can confront them. It is time to change the cruel norms that have long been accepted. Not only in regards to animals in factory farms, as I wrote about a couple of weeks ago, but also as it pertains to race in this country. As a young person growing up white and middle class in suburban California, …
