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!

The Healing Benefits of Journaling About Meditating with Animals

Have you written down the things you are grateful for lately? If not, it’s a wonderful exercise to do at the end of the day, before you sleep, especially in trying times like these. Why not try it tonight? Writing, especially about my experiences with animals, has always been so healing for me. I guess maybe that’s why I have written so many books, LOL. I’d love to share my affinity for writing with you, and it’s one of the things that motivated me to create my upcoming book, The Let Animals …

I get by with a little help from my …

How are you all hanging in there? I must admit, I’ve been feeling a bit of isolation exhaustion over the past few days. I miss traveling, teaching (in person) and hiking in nature every day with my dog. I consoled myself by binge watching “Anne with an E” on Netflix (loved it!), petting my collie and watching my daughter make me vegan gluten-free strawberry shortcake for Mother’s Day. (Gee, poor me, LOL) I know, I suddenly realized I was being a real baby and have nothing to complain about! I was reminded …

3 Lessons About Hard Times My Animal Reiki Practice Taught Me

As we enter our 3rd week of shelter in place, here in Marin County, I am figuring out a new routine as I adjust to our new “normal.” As life has gotten quieter, I noticed this week that it strangely felt familiar to me. As I reflected on this I realized that there was one other time in my life when I had to slow way down and stay indoors quite a bit. And when I wasn’t up to visiting with people or going out to eat and so on. …

How to Find Peace in Uncertain Times

I’m writing to you from Marin County, where we’ve just received a “shelter in place” order from the Sheriff’s Department. This is truly an uncertain time in our world, and no one will remain unaffected by this pandemic. As an empath, I find it more difficult than most to be around community anxiety and panic. I tried to go out to get some supplies today, but after seeing the crowded streets and road rage everywhere, I turned around and went home, sweet home! Although this is a challenging time, I know …

The Three Biggest Changes I’ve Seen in Animal Reiki

When I started practicing Animal Reiki (AR) back in the 90s, I couldn’t find any AR teachers to study with. Most human Reiki teachers just added a sentence in their classes to say something like, “Animals can also benefit from Reiki sessions.” Because of this, and in addition to dedicating myself to many years of human-based Reiki training, I found myself volunteering as many animal Reiki sessions as possible. I searched for as many varied locations and as many varied species as possible, in order to find the answers to …
