What Does Animal Reiki Look Like?

Reiki is Reiki, whether I’m giving to a person or an animal (sometimes both).

During Reiki sessions, whether in person or from a distance, I appear to be meditating. In fact, I am meditating! I’ll either sit or stand, and your animals can come and go as they like.

If I’m offering Reiki to an animal in a private home, I sit on a chair, or the floor, or outside, somewhere near your pet. Your pet decides how close to be.

In a shelter, I'll sit or stand wherever it works. Kennel and cage doors can stay closed, or open (with staff permission). I can fill a room with Reiki light so that every kenneled or caged animal can receive the energy.

LongShot

Reiki being offered for shelter cats both caged and roaming freely in this adoption room. The cats can receive Reiki energy from anywhere in the room; it’s up to them. Caged cats will receive Reiki inside their cages, or if they are not interested that day, they can just decline to receive a session that day.

On a farm or in a sanctuary, I’ll stand in a barn or near a corral, stall, or pen. Sometimes I'm inside the enclosure, sometimes I stay outside. It just depends on what is appropriate.

Shy animals can feel free to receive their treatment at a distance, such as under a sofa or even from the next room.

Throughout most sessions I’ll remain where I started. Animals who want to be held or touched during a session will approach me if they want to.

That pretty much sums up “animal Reiki style.” Each practitioner has an individual style of offering the energy, of course.
