Reiki with Animals
Animal Reiki is learning to mediate with your animals. People who use Reiki are called “Practitioners” and support the self-healing process through meditation. In her book, Everything Animal Reiki, Kathleen Prasad explains animal Reiki as “. . . the practice of healing, animal connections, and meditation to create balance, harmony and healing”. She goes on to say Reiki is a meditative system of spiritual practices.
I became aware of the benefits of Reiki through my own training as a Reiki practitioner and how it has had a positive effect on animals. The integration of Reiki in my work with dogs has been helpful, especially with fearful /shy dogs. All dogs can benefit from the quiet, mindful, connected presence I share with them through Reiki.
