Reiki and animals: Reactions during treatment
When receiving a Reiki treatment, animals, like people, commonly enter a state of deep relaxation. They are generally more sensitive to energy and feel Reiki energy stronger and faster than humans. When they feel energy for the first time, they usually step on their legs and look at you. Domestic animals often sniff your hands.
Remember that flow of Reiki energy through you to animal can be dehydrating! Stay hydrated and give the animal access to fresh water.
Reiki is associated with feelings such as peace or even euphoria. Strong emotions and emotional release – this is response to Reiki energy.
Animals, like people, need to resolve and release emotional matters. If they are dealing with unresolved emotional issues, they are emotionally ill.
