What is Reiki and how can it help my animal?
Reiki (ray-key) is an ancient Tibetan form of therapeutic touch, rediscovered in the 1900’s by Dr. Mikao Usui. Reiki is the Japanese word for UNIVERSAL LIFE FORCE ENERGY.
This wonderful healing technique draws on two forms of vibration energy:
“REI” mean universal, transcendent spirit; essence; this is the highest and purest form (not visible to the naked eye);
“KI” means vital life force energy which flows through all being, this is the non physical energy that flows through animals and all living beings it is the pure energy of our emotions, thoughts and spiritual life.
Reiki is channelled through a practitioner’s hands. Those who choose to be a channel for Reiki are tuned to receive the energy rather like a radio is tuned in to a certain frequency.
It is a gentle yet powerful energy that may be used safely and enjoyably by all ages, including the newborn, pregnant mothers, surgical patients, the frail and the elderly as well as dogs, horse and many other animals and pets.
Using light touch over the clothing, and non-contact where necessary, Reiki may help the body’s natural defence mechanism to work more effectively, speed the healing process, encourage relaxation and bring balance to the mind and emotions.
Reiki is a major and important healing method, available at short notice, no tools are required only the healers’ hands and it can be used as an everyday healing. Reiki works on your emotional, mental, physical and spiritual levels.
