What is Reiki and why does it work?
Reiki is a non-invasive, complementary and alternative healing practice. Originating in Japan, the word Reiki is made up of two Japanese words. ‘Rei’, meaning Spirit and ‘Ki’, meaning life energy. All life forms are comprised of energy ‘Ki’. Energy cannot be created, nor can it be destroyed. It can only change form. The core of any living being and fundamentally what we all are is energy.
In order to understand ‘Ki’ in its simplicity, we can digress back to lessons we took at school, whereby we were taught the scientific fact that all Matter on earth, every single cell, in every living thing is made up of atoms. Atoms are teeny, weeny building blocks comprising of electrons, protons and neutrons – in short, atoms are minuscule pockets of energy, resonating incredible power. Therefore energy ‘Ki’ is the one and the only element that will always be in existence, namely ‘The Universal Energy Field’. This incredibly special field connects each and every living being to everybody and everything.
Once an understanding of how fundamentally important energy ‘ki’ is to our everyday lives, we are then able to comprehend how this incredible power is applied through the practice of Reiki.
Many of our animal companion’s ailments are derived from trauma, illness or allergies, which in turn create imbalance and misalignment of the Chakras within the body.
As a Pet Reiki Practitioner, I represent a tool which will help guide your pet through self-healing, rebalancing the flow of energy ‘Ki’ through your pet’s body. Best of all, animals are very accepting of Reiki as, unlike human beings, they have no socially built up preconceived ideas or beliefs.
