I am a Certified Animal Practitioner with the Canadian Reiki Association and I am a certified Animal Teacher/ Practitioner of "The Let the Animals Lead method" with SARA, Shelter Animal Reiki Association.
Discover the power of animal-guided healing through meditation with Kathleen Prasad's "Let the Animals Lead method". This groundbreaking approach to energy healing empowers animals by honoring their agency, wisdom and independence by giving them a choice of how (and if) they want to participate in an energy healing Animal Reiki session. This method is a gentle path to help humans and animals live together with more balance, peace and happiness. The method is about self discovery within in order to really connect with animals.
This method is not a quick technique nor is it training, it is working with the emotional and energy needs of the animal and the animal's human. Every animal is an individual and will react accordingly to their personality, individual history and emotional needs. See link below for the code of ethics and the six pillars of "The Let the Animals Lead Method:
This method is founded upon traditional Japanese Reiki techniques
Touch is only used when animals seek touch
Mental focus techniques develop an “All is Well” state of mind for the practitioner. The practitioner focuses and sees the animal's perfection in the present moment rather than focusing on what is wrong.
Meditation is taught as the way of compassion
Develops mindfulness with animals for peace and healing.
This method acknowledges and honors each animal as a spiritual teacher and healer in their own right.
Animals are our greatest teachers, very intuitive and at one with energy. Animals can bring great joy into our lives and can teach us many things as they teach us to listen, observe, live in the moment, forgive and to be joyful. To many they are confidants and bring great comfort as animals love unconditionally. Animals have extraordinary gifts and can be of great service to humans in particular roles as working animals. For instance; therapy horses, guide dogs, dogs in hospitals, hospices, search and rescue, military dogs and many other services that animals provide for human well-being.
Unfortunately, in today's world with so many demands on families, animals often don't have all their emotional needs met. You may ask, how can Reiki help my pet?
