Animals are not the underlings many think them to be. They are majestic beings who naturally live fully immersed in the moment and are able to freely share unconditional love. They are sensitive to each other and are aware of the needs and psychological states of their human companions. Animals can provide comfort and even healing to humans when they are in need.
Animals have a natural understanding of Reiki and enjoy receiving it. Reiki provides them with the same benefits and healing we experience as humans, making it an effective method of caring for injuries, emotional issues or virtually any problem an animal might experience. Under certain circumstances, they are capable of receiving attunements and giving Reiki to other animals and to humans.
Reiki is a wonderful way for humans to gain a deeper connection with and understanding of animals—whether they be pets, shelter animals, livestock or animals encountered in the wild. Reiki can also provide a way to communicate with animals. In so doing it is possible to feel what they feel and understand how they think and in this way gain benefit from their knowledge and wisdom. Having a close relationship with animals through Reiki can enrich your life and provide you with a state of mind in which you are more able to enjoy life as well as deal with its ups and downs.

Because animals are so sensitive to our inner state of mind and heart, they can become easily stressed when we are angry or worried. On the other hand, they can also benefit when we are in a balanced space of peace, compassion and joy.
Reiki is ideal for use with animals because it is gentle, noninvasive and doesn't require physical contact. It doesn't cause stress, discomfort, or pain, and yet yields powerful results. Animals respond intuitively to Reiki's power to support the healing of emotional, behavioral, and physical illnesses and injuries.
For animals who are healthy, Reiki helps to maintain their health, enhances relaxation and provides an emotional sense of peace and contentment.
For animals who are ill, Reiki is a wonderful healing method as well as a safe complement to Western Medicine, Chinese Medicine, homeopathy, flower essences, and all other forms of healing. For example, Reiki can reduce the side effects of chemotherapy, support an acupuncture treatment, and complement the effects of flower essences.
For dying animals, Reiki is a powerful yet gentle way to provide comfort, relief from pain, fear, and anxiety, and to ease the transition to death. Reiki is also a wonderful way to support a dying animal's family.
