Expanding the Reiki Vibe

reiki-hands-on-healing-session

Reiki is an energy-based system that restores balance to the patient.

As anyone who has been following this blog will already know, I specialise in offering reiki for animals, both domesticated and wild. This is something that I am passionate about and I look forward to every session I do. Recently, however, things have deviated a little and I am now expanding the reiki to other beings – specifically the human variety!

It seems that once you get your name out there and people begin to pass on your details for reiki, the reach becomes greater and there is more scope for reiki work. I was asked by a lady for some healing for herself and initially I wanted to say no as the animals were my priority. Continue reading

My Reiki Level 1 Weekend

reiki animal healing

Last weekend I enjoyed a thoroughly interesting time in Bromyard learning Reiki and getting 4 attunements to level 1. As I said in my previous post about healing animals with reiki, I have wanted to learn Reiki for a while now and the time finally came. By the end of the weekend I was well and truly zapped by all the energy work we did within the small group but I felt great!

There are now many different kinds of Reiki that people teach but I was keen to find a teacher who taught the traditional way as done by Mikao Usui all those years ago. Reiki Shiki Ryoho is a specific form of practice that allows the student to have contact with the energy of Reiki simply by laying on of hands in self treatment and treatment of others. I also wanted to find a teacher who had a close and direct lineage with Mikao Usui so I was really happy to find one in Lorraine Davis.

The Healing Power of Horses

Some of you that have horses who have stopped to listen and just BE with their horse may well be aware of how your equines have the ability to heal us humans in a very unique way. I’m a firm believer we can heal animals and that all animals can be healers themselves. They have some way of tapping into the healing energies that surround us and directing it when it’s needed. This is a wonderful video that shows how horses can heal people in a very reiki kind of way.

Using Reiki to Help Animals

using reiki to heal horses

Healing animals is a passion I have and it won’t go away!  You could say I’m stuck with it but the truth is I enjoy doing the healing so much I wish I could do it more often. Knowing that you have connected on a spiritual level with another being is very humbling, and by offering healing you know the animal will benefit from the session. Reiki for animals is something that I will be offering very shortly, to go hand in hand with my current healing modality.

Next month I will be learning the energy healing art of reiki. The workshop is being done by a lovely lady called Lorraine who lives in Bromyard which is not far from me. Lorraine is a reiki master and has been on the reiki council so she really is reiki through and through! This will give me reiki level 1 attunements that enable me to do self healing. It’s very important to be healthy and ensure your own emotions and energy state is balanced before giving any healing yourself. The next step is for level 2 which allows you to become a practitioner. Hopefully I will do that later in the year.

You may be wondering why I need or want to learn another healing method like reiki when I already do energy healing for animals. Reiki is very similar to the healing I do right now but it is perhaps a more mainstream and recognised system. And if it helps me improve the service I give to my clients then that’s got to be a good thing. I’m not one to get stuck in a routine and not learn new things and I think getting attuned to reiki will benefit the animals I work with which is the main goal. I may even adopt it as my primary healing method if it’s as good as people make out!

Helping dogs with epilepsy

healing dogs with epilepsy

Unfortunately we still have medical conditions in this world that science has been unable to cure. One of these is epilepsy. I was unaware that not only does it affect humans, but animals too. After reading more into this condition I realised that, along with veterinary advice and medication, energy healing would be a wonderful additional way to help animals.

Epilepsy is found in all breeds and mixed breeds of dogs. Some breeds are more genetically prone to epileptic seizures than others, but it’s a sad fact than any dog can have a seizure and it can be quite unexpected. There are several types of epilepsy in dogs such as generalized seizure, partial seizures etc. with varying levels of effect on the dog.

How I became an animal healer

I never thought when I was younger that I would work with animals, let alone become an animal healer. Like most young boys growing up in the 70’s I wanted to be an astronaut or stunt man! After all, most kids don’t have an understanding of animals at that age. Thankfully my parents always had dogs so there was always a connection with them, and growing up in the countryside offered plenty of wildlife to connect with, even if I wasn’t totally aware of it.

After school I found myself in the print trade, which then developed into me becoming a graphic designer. In fact I still am doing that but the animal healing is steadily taking up more of my time as I get people asking for sessions.
