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.

How to Create a Healing Space for Animals

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 …

Making the World a Better Place with Animal Reiki

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, …

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 …
