The Animal Reiki Healing Experience

Reiki is not about healing as much as it is a journey to the center of the universe—ourselves! It is about recognizing oneness and being a true part of all there is. Reiki practice is a place of peace where we can share in the deep and true love that IS oneness.

When healing occurs so does the innate understanding that many humans already know: the power of love in true and deep healing. Universal or divine energy IS Reiki and we are truly lucky to be able to take this journey of learning about ourselves in Reiki practice.

Why are so many animal lovers drawn to learn Reiki? It is because animals resonate at a higher vibration than humans, and they attract us into their lives so that we may learn and heal as they offer us their unconditional love.

Animal Reiki Energy Healing CertificationReiki can be practiced directly with the animal present or at a distance, even many miles or countries away. Because Reiki can flow in this fashion, it is ideal for some animals that do not wish for direct contact or hands-on treatment, but still want to benefit from the healing energy. The average length of a Reiki treatment is 30-60 minutes.

Reiki is a wonderful way for humans to gain a deeper connection with and understanding of animals—whether they be pets, shelter animals, livestock or animals encountered in the wild. Reiki can also provide a way to communicate with animals. In so doing it is possible to feel what they feel and understand how they think and in this way gain benefit from their knowledge and wisdom. Having a close relationship with animals through Reiki can enrich your life and provide you with a state of mind in which you are more able to enjoy life as well as deal with its ups and downs.

Animals absolutely love Reiki. This safe and natural healing practise can be used to help dogs, cats, horses and other animals with a wide range of issues and conditions alongside modern medicine or as a stand along treatment to enhance your pets overall peace and wellbeing. Reiki on animals can;
• Promote relaxation, especially in times of stress;
• Support and speed up healing after illness, injury or surgery
• Relieve pain
Distance Reiki will be sent by the practionier to the animal so they can remain in the comfort of their own home. Distance healing is as powerful as in person healing. Energy does not have any limitations.

  • calming destructive behaviors,
  • easing pain,
  • improving or regulating appetite,
  • addressing traumas from the past, and

Does Reiki for Pets Have Side Effects?

You can always choose whether or not to receive Reiki. Reiki has no contraindications; it is regarded as a completely safe and gentle practice.

Most pets become very relaxed during or after a session and may fall asleep.

The shift in energy created by animal Reiki may at first startle some pets, especially if they are skittish or have experienced trauma. These pets may initially prefer to experience the energy from a distance.

How often should Reiki be done?

It’s best to receive three to five Reiki treatments one to two weeks apart. Once you see yourself improving you can space out treatments to one month or six weeks apart. Receiving regular Reiki treatments is excellent self-care and helps you to maintain holistic balance.

Can I Do Reiki on My Pet?

Anyone can learn to do animal Reiki. You learn by receiving an attunement and instruction from a Reiki Master. The attunement is a transfer of energy designed to open the energy pathways in your body. Teachers usually give attunements during workshops. Three levels of Reiki instruction are available:

  • Level 1: Teaches you to use Reiki in person for yourself and family/friends/pets. The focus is on opening your physical energy channels, letting you connect to the universal life force energy. You also learn hand positions.
  • Level 2: Teaches you how to use Reiki for cats and dogs at a distance.
  • Level 3: Master’s Training teaches you to use Reiki at the highest level and gives you the knowledge to teach Reiki.

If you want to do Reiki healing for dogs or other animals, you need to attend at least a level 1 workshop. However, Morgan notes that some pet parents have trouble performing animal Reiki on their own pet because they are too emotionally attached.
