When I first published my book, Tails of a Healer: Animals, Reiki and Shamanism, I wrote a humorous article entitled Inviting a Tiger Home to Play: Unleashing a Shamanic Book which contained stories that clearly showed that the book had a mind, and a spirit, all its own. Several of those stories revolved around dogs and cats who seemed to find the book’s energy irresistible.
Back in 1995, when I took my first class in Reiki I had no inkling of how it would transform my life and the benefits it would offer my own animals. If I had, I would have signed up much sooner!
Beyond the numerous benefits my animals and I have received, I am also grateful for the experiences I have had when offering Reiki. There is one in particular that can occur, especially when sharing the healing energy of Reiki with an animal—a sense of deep connection. A connection that transcends what mere words can encompass. Take a moment to look closely at the photo that accompanies this article and you’ll see what I mean.
The photo was taken at New Moon Farm Goat Rescue and Sanctuary while I was teaching an Animal ReikiShamanic class. The miniature donkey gently touched my hand with his muzzle, asking for some energy work. He could freely have moved away at any time—instead he remained for quite a while, soaking up the Reiki. And gradually we both melted into the connection. (Many thanks to photographer Annie Marie Musselman who accompanied us and captured this beautiful moment.)
Experience the peace, relaxation, and ONENESS of Reiki.
I am passionate about sharing my love for Reiki with others, and offer a mentored live six-week Reiki teleclass series where you can easily learn Reiki in the comfort of your own home.
I’d love to introduce you to Reiki or support you on your Reiki path. I work hard to ensure that each student receives clear guidance and personal attention for their best and highest healing good. Class is available worldwide.
