What is Pet Reiki?
What is Reiki?
You probably don’t know this but everyone has the potential to do hands on healing. If you’ve ever had a sick child, no doubt you have laid your hands on them and they felt better. This touch utilises your own healing ability that comes from your Vital Life Force, the energy that makes up your being. Energy flows through your body with energy centres where your Chakras are. This energy has been known since ancient times and is predominant in Yoga (Prana) and the martial arts (eg Tai Chi, QiGong and Aikido).
On the other hand, Reiki goes beyond personal Vital Life Force having a source in the Universe itself. The word derives from the two Japanese words, ‘Rei’ and ‘Ki’ where ‘Rei’ means ‘Universal’, and ‘Rei’ meaning ‘life force’. So Reiki means Universal Life Force. Its energy is ever present and exists everywhere and in the past, present and future. Therefore it is possible to heal someone in person or heal them at a distance at any point in time.
Why do Pets need Reiki?
Like humans, pets can have some negative emotions. This could arise from any kind of trauma in its past. For instance if it had been abused or spent some time in the rescue centre. The animals hold on to this energy and can manifest itself in ‘bad’ behaviour like barking or tearing things up.
Another reason why animals might hold on to negative emotions is that they store the energy from their owner. For instance if you or your partner are constantly fighting or you are having a bad time at work and have a lot of anger and frustration, this can be transmitted to your animals. That’s why it’s wonderful for your pet to experience Reiki. It can help with ‘bad’ behaviour and can release the unwanted negative emotions that they are storing.
Pet Reiki and Reiki at a Distance
Similar to humans, animals have a Chakra system in similar locations to that of humans. In the same way, Reiki can be used to balance the Chakras and releasing negative energy and negative memories.
Pets love Reiki and whilst not always wanting to be touched, they bathe in the healing energy that the Reiki Practitioner emits. Sometimes the pet will come up close and want a cuddle and then hands on healing can be administered. Otherwise, the pet is happy to receive Reiki at a distance which helps if the pet is skittish or is shy.
In summary, like Reiki for humans, Reiki for pets is an effective way of clearing their negative emotions and memories.
