Reiki For Horse Picasso

Reiki for Horse Picasso

Back when I was just a wee Reiki lass I had a lovely encounter with a horse named Picasso. When I met him I discovered why he was named after the famous artist—one side of Picasso’s face was brown with a brown eye, and the other was white with a blue eye. He was quite striking looking and—as I was to discover—he had quite the personality.

His person shared with us that Picasso was suffering from a painful hoof problem and could use some Reiki energy healing.

Picasso was secured in the cross ties in the middle of the barn, and I took his left side and another Reiki practitioner took the right. Crouching down, I placed both hands on Picasso’s left front hoof.

The energy began flowing strongly, and I settled in. After a bit I noticed Picasso cross his back legs, rather like a human would when relaxing. I looked at his person inquiringly and she said, “He does that when he gets comfortable.” Excellent, he was enjoying the Reiki.

A little more time passed, and I felt this heavy weight settle on my shoulder. It was Picasso’s head—he was now using my shoulder like a pillow. I did wonder how long the pillow would last—horse heads are heavy!

A little more time went by, and I peeked at Picasso—he was now drooling copiously. I looked again at his person and she said, “He does that when he gets REALLY relaxed.”

Eventually the flow of energy slowed and stopped, and we stood up and said good-bye to Picasso.

I began walking away, and heard a sound behind me. Turning back I saw Picasso had stepped forward as far as the cross ties would allow, and was straining to reach me.

I walked back to him, and asked, “What?”

And that beautiful horse put his head over my shoulder and pulled me in for a hug—he was grateful for the Reiki. He also showed no signs of a limp.
