Animal Reiki Helps People, Too

“Just as water ripples outward with the drop of a pebble, Reiki flows to exactly where it's needed for the highest good of all."  

~Cathy Malkin, The Animal Muse




As a Reiki Master Practitioner for over ten years, I'm still in awe of the incredible healing power of Reiki. 
The more I practice Reiki, the more I see how the Universal Life Force Energy ripples outward flowing to precisely where it's needed the most.

When clients sent up Reiki sessions for a particular animal in their family, I encourage them to be with their pet during the treatment because Reiki frequently benefits other family members including pets and humans. 


An excellent example of what I call the "Reiki Ripple Effect" happened when I offered a beautiful 16-year-old Golden Retriever mix named Shanti distant Reiki.

Shanti's human, Serena requested Reiki to support her best friend, who was recently diagnosed with cancer, and for an upcoming move. 
Given all the different holistic options, Serena felt long-distant Reiki was the best choice to compliment Shanti's cancer treatments and help decrease her anxiety around the move.

Before Shanti's first Reiki session, I suggested Serena and her two cats create a "healing circle" around Shanti. In other words, I wanted Shanti's family to sit or sleep close by one another while I offered Reiki to Shanti.

After Shanti's initial treatment, Serena shared the following feedback:

Reiki goes where it needs to go, right?

It went straight to my own body, which has been in intense body pain for over a week. After Shanti's Reiki session, I had NO pain for two days!

As for Shanti - the light in her eyes are bright as her eyes tend to become dull when she is uncomfortable. And her gorgeous coat has shined up. . . it's palpable!
The cats? They’ve have been playing more. 
Also, thanks for getting rid of my dang virus that had a hold on me.

That's the Reiki Report!
After Shanti's third Reiki treatment, Serena wrote:
Three times is apparently the charm. Shanti seems transformed this evening standing for her supper, which she hasn't done in weeks.
Serena and Shanti's experience highlights Reiki's innate intelligence and its ability to go to whoever needs it, which in this case, created positive healing results for the entire family, including Serena.
