Animals experience stress just as their humans do. They too experience grief after a significant loss. Our furry and feathered friends cannot tell us verbally, but they may communicate or act out in an effort to let us know they are not happy or healthy.
Reiki is an energy healing modality that helps relieve stress, and opens the way for relaxation, healing and good health. "Rei" meaning spiritual or Universal, and "ki" meaning energy translates to Universal Energy.
Allowing Universal energy to properly flow through an animal, like a human, restores their ability to relax and recharge their body, mind and spirit.
With the help of methods and remedies such as Aromatherapy, homeopathy, herbs, flower essences, EFT temporal tapping and Reiki, the most relaxation and balance can be achieved.
The chakras, or energy vortices in the body can become blocked from stressors and triggers in the animal's environment, leaving them feeling weak and out of balance. Reiki can bring back the balance and ability to relax, so they may heal in body, mind & spirit.
Reiki is an ancient art that promotes relaxation in the receiver, so the Universal energy may flow properly, causing peace, serenity, mental clarity and calm. This can (and usually does) create a more loving, trusting and better behaving animal. When your pet is balanced, all is right in his world!
As humans we verbalize - or at least we have the ability to verbalize. We are able to discuss losses, talk about our feelings and how it affects our lives.
Our pets have a gift that we humans do not have - they live in the NOW all the time. But when it comes to grief, they can be just as devastated as we humans are. We tend to grieve so much over the "what if"s and the "should've"s and "what will never be"s, aside from the loss itself.
Pets do not have guilt, or feelings of unfinished business. They experience loss as it is - sudden, permanent, painful and life-altering. NOW is all they have, and they are missing what they have lost.
Pets may grieve over--
These are only a few scenarios that could affect your pet's happiness and consequently, their behavior.
Don't forget to look for the obvious if your pet is acting strangely- call your pet's doctor and make sure they are healthy and not sick.
Reiki cannot heal illness. It is a complementary therapy that helps put your pet back in balance and harmony with the Universe.
