I send them that quiet and calm energy that helps them to heal whatever may be bothering or hurting them but without trying to fix it. I call it sending them love and light. Here is an example of one of the dogs I worked with to explain.
One of my clients is a puppy. He was having a particularly bad day. He is going through the teething process so he is already in pain, he had been in the crate which we can not get him to like it. We went outside and he was just pulling like crazy on the leash to go anywhere. So getting him to focus wasn’t happening. I tried his various chew toys to help with teething and he wasn’t interested, he just paced. So I sat down on the floor with him. I always like to sit on the floor with my animals, it makes me feel closer to them. I started to clear my mind and quieted the space between us, sending him love and light. Within 2 minutes, he was laying beside me, if not on my lap. He was relaxed and at peace for the rest of the visit. This is what Animal Reiki accomplishes.
