A Visual Take on Reiki for Animals

By December 9, 2016Animal Healing

Following on from my previous post about Reiki for Dogs I felt it was worth putting down in simple terms how the system of reiki can benefit all animals. Sometimes it’s worth going into the finer details of how something works or why it’s great but this time I felt inspired to keep it simple.

Hence this post is all about visually breaking it down in simple terms. It was an enjoyable few hours planning this infographic and finding the right words and images to explain how reiki can help animals. Using Adobe Photoshop I brought all the elements together and tried to keep it clean yet informative.

Animal reiki can help on so many levels it is hard to mention them all in a graphic like this. I find it is particularly useful in helping pets overcome anxiety and stress, however they arose in the first place. It can also help with aggression, depression and even behavioural issues (which often stem from stress and emotional problems anyway).

Of course reiki is also helpful for pain relief, whether this is recovery from an injury or an illness.

One of the great things about the reiki energy system is that it doesn’t have to be hands-on. Using visualisation and the distant healing reiki symbol we can direct the energy from afar, meaning those animals in need of work that are out of reach can still be treated. I have plenty of clients who can testify to the effectiveness of distance reiki for animals.

So without further ado, here is my first infographic for Talking to Animals…

Please feel free to share this infographic and help spread the word that we can help our animal friends with this complementary and holistic therapy – it’s not just us humans that can benefit from reiki sessions!

Drop a comment below if you have an experience with reiki, I’d love to hear it.

    Giving Reiki to animals is such a beautiful thing. My grandfather was a very in tune person, he worked with horses all his life and had a close bond with horses. He always said horses were very special animals. There acute sensitivity made them very empathic and aware of others in a deep spiritual sense. Right enough, the deepest most powerful Reiki healing I ever performed was to a horse. We can learn alot of wisdom from the animals of Earth. Blessings.

      Thanks for the comment Ricky, nice to hear you have continued the animal healing your Grandfather started. Horses are indeed very sensitive and can pick up on our emotions and thoughts very well. They are also great healers themselves. I really enjoy reiki with horses, it’s so peaceful and emotional.

    Animals are amazing beings. I am at the beginning of my Reiki journey, only just being attuned to Reiki 2. Right from the start of Reiki 1 my cats would come and “pinch” when self treating. But seriously one of my special humans has high anxiety levels and a heart murmur, but he has gradually self treated himself through me and is now less anxious. I also have a few local feline friends who visit (I thought to pinch food) but the food they want is Reiki. Th bond is so warm honest and true. Changed my thinking and life

    • That sounds like the reiki is flowing nicely from you and the cats are picking up on it easily. Animals do tend to sense it when reiki is available and gravitate towards it! Thanks for the comment.
