Recently, I have had a surge of people contacting me asking me for help with their pets who are fighting cancer. While I am always able to help I like to educate them and provide information on how easy it is for them to send healing Reiki energy to their pets themselves. I’ve had many people share with me that they believed Reiki was a complicated healing art and that they preferred to have a practitioner because they thought it was something that took years to be able to practice. I love being able to tell people how simple and loving Reiki is and enjoy seeing their eyes light up when they realize they can help their beloved pets themselves. Reiki is all about intention. Once attuned to Reiki anyone is able to activate a symbol and send healing energy.
There are several different ways for a Reiki Practitioner to perform an Animal Reiki Session. I like to keep things as simple as possible as Reiki is all knowing and I believe we are all truly just a unique vessel that passes this energy along. The most important thing to remember is that there is no wrong way. Do not stress out wondering every second if you are doing it correctly. This will stop the flow of the Reiki energy and no healing will take place. Just relax, activate the symbols, and allow Reiki to flow and do its healing!
Steps to send Reiki to a pet with cancer:
- Seal yourself and your environment in your favorite way. Even just a power symbol drawn in front of you to protect your environment, on yourself to protect you, and one on your animal friend will get the job done. If you would like to send Reiki distantly to a pet with cancer the only change you will need to make in this process is to simply make a distance symbol at the beginning of your session. Picture the animal in front of you and beam Reiki to it the whole time as if the animal was really there in front of you. Energetically it is there!
- Set the intention of the session. For example, in this case you could say, “I am happy that today Reiki energy will peacefully flow to (say the animals name) and provide the greatest healing possible with love.”
- Make a master or power symbol on the palms of your hands. Put your hands in front of or on your pet and allow Reiki to flow. Animals will let you know when they have had enough energy. Never force them to keep going. If they are sleepy however just do a ten minute session.
- End the session by making a power or master symbol over them. Next, make a grounding symbol over them and then one over yourself as well.
Sending Reiki to a pet with cancer can have huge benefits for both yourself and your pet. Even if it is their time to cross over Reiki will make the crossing as peaceful and as pain free as possible. If the owner is the one sending the Reiki it allows them to feel like they are helping their pet during a time when it is so easy to feel like there is nothing they can do to help. How amazing is Reiki?
I would like to dedicate this short piece to our beautiful Ceclila who just crossed over to the other side. I’m sure she is busy chasing other cats and dogs happily and pain free.
Sending love your way.
