Why animals need Reiki
All of the following things can lead to energy blocks in our animals that we are not aware of and can progress to illness or disease. Reiki can help overcome and release the effects of these issues/blocks and realign the animal back to their greatest health and wellness.
- Animals are Very Sensitive to our Moods/Atmosphere. You have probably experienced when someone is in a bad mood it seems to affect you and you become more angry or depressed. This same things happens to the animals who share our homes. They pick up on our anger, frustration, stress, anxiety, worry, grief, etc. They incorporate these energies into their systems but often have a difficult time releasing them.
- Stress: Yes, animals can get stressed. This comes from them being left alone for long periods of time. They may be afraid you might not come back, hear strange noises, or are confined to a small spaces. Stress also comes from changes of routine. Even changing the position of furniture in your house or a change in your normal schedule can affect their routine and cause them stress. Also boredom, over crowding, or not keeping the litter box clean enough can cause stress.
- Diet: the quality of the food or water can affect the animal's health. Food is an energetic building block of the physical body. We are what we eat. Most domesticated animals are fed food that is not what they would have normally eaten in the wild. The preservatives or additives in food can affect their energy and thus their health. Water can also be purified or filtered with chemicals which introduces possible toxic agents to their system. The same goes for humans. If we are constantly eating processed and/or modified foods, they have a denser energy which can lead to health issues.
- Grief or Depression: Animals are truly affected when one of their caretakers or companion animals is no longer around. They are not able to cry, etc. to release these feelings, and thus the emotions get stuck in the cells and the emotional body. Anyone who has spent any time with an animal companion can attest that they can be excited to see you or be anxious when you are leaving. If we can admit that they "feel" these emotions, we should also admit they experience guilt or depression. Some symptoms of grief or depression in animals are changes in eating patterns, sleeping habits, and/or interest in activities.
- Lack of Exercise or Stimulation: One of the ways we keep our energy flowing is through physical activity. Have you ever noticed if you sit around all day, you don't have much energy to do anything and feel sluggish? The same happens with animals and blocks energy flow.
- Past Traumas: When we are traumatized, we tend to "bury" the emotions and just keep moving forward. These emotions get stuck somewhere in our physical body and our emotional body. The same thing can happen to animals and affect their personality and behavior.
- Environmental Pollution: Animals can be affected by the electromagnetic fields/low frequency radiation from our electronic devices, noise pollution from passing traffic, or toxins from our cleaning products.
- Previous Injuries: any time there is a injury, the energy flow to that area gets disrupted. Reiki can help restore the natural flow and thus decrease pain, swelling, or dysfunction. We may not even realize past issues are still present after the obvious signs of injury have healed.
- Over Breeding: So many specialized breeds are now available. While they are cute, over breeding can affect their DNA/RNA and pre-dispose the animal to certain illnesses. Reiki can help prevent these illnesses.
- Pain/Illness: Often animals do not show observable signs until the pain or illness is fairly advanced. Reiki can help alleviate early stages of pain and illness that we have not yet noticed.
