One of my goals with my blogging and teaching is to encourage people to work with their Reiki gift in their every day life. Reiki is for EVERYONE, not just for being a professional healer. Reiki to me is for making our lives and those around us AND the whole world, a more beautiful and spiritual place to live. In fact, I truly see Reiki as the healing power that anyone can do.
Reiki Every Day
I’m starting a new series for this purpose called, Reiki Every Day. My intention is that they will be short little ideas of ways to work with your Reiki in small but powerful ways for you on a daily basis. Similar to Quick Tips but more as ideas and encouraging you to figure out the HOW to fit your life.
Sending Reiki to Animals in Need
I opened up my newspaper today to cut out the wonderful garage selling page with map and description of each sale going on this coming weekend. Right next to the ads are pictures of kitties from the local rescue organization, brilliant of them, I always read them even though I am not in the market for more cats. I see the photos and find myself wanting to adopt ALL OF THEM and I have done that before, before I had a husband who puts his foot down as to how many animals I have. Darn his level head and my bleeding heart. When we have big hearts, it’s sometimes difficult to see so many animals in need. How can we help so many? Easy, with Reiki.
Send Reiki in a Way that Works for You
There are many ways to do this, sit with it for a minute, your desire to help will communicate to your Reiki guides to give you an idea that will work for you and your life. Then you can adapt it to you and certain special situations in that moment. This may even mean getting more involved in the animal rescue group yourself, or it could mean pulling over to help a dog in the street and calling it’s owner or it may just mean sending Reiki to them and moving on. Since I have a full plate as it is in the pet ownership department, when I come across ads or Facebook pictures that are about animals in need, I opt for the ‘send Reiki’ option.
I put a Mental/Emotional Reiki symbol and then a Power Symbol over each picture, say the name of each symbol three times and intend for the Highest Good of All involved for them to find the perfect home. That’s all it takes. THAT is powerful intention and healing. I do this in the paper, on Facebook, dog running through the street, on T.V. and any other time I see an animal in need. It’s quick and simple and powerful healing. If you do not have Reiki symbols simply run Reiki over the picture with your positive intentions for the highest good of all for these animals. It is much like saying a prayer but with Reiki.
Then have faith that the Reiki will work miracles and help to find these pets the perfect home for them. This helps our heart feel better, it got us to stop from our busy day to think about someone else and gave us a chance to connect with our Reiki guides and our Reiki energy. ALL GOOD! A win/win!
Hopefully this is a new and welcome idea to some of you or a good reminder to others, now go out, use your Reiki for good and help some animals in a whole new way.
