Reiki and our Animal Teachers

Ten years ago I began to change the focus of my life. I came to the conclusion that there was more to life than work, that money isn't everything, and that the best things in life aren't things. At this point in my life I became a vegetarian and felt the strong nagging, urging, to find my calling. This calling in part has to do with the greyhounds, and all animals. We can learn so much from them, as I feel they are here to guide and aid us in learning life's lessons. They are Master Teachers of loving unconditionally and without prejudice, of loyalty, of respect and love of life, and forgiveness. It is my belief that animals take on their environment, our stress, our emotions, our "garbage". Because of this I have become a Reiki Practitioner, Level III, which allows me to do long distance healing as well as in-home sessions. Reiki is a complimentary practice to conventional veterinary care and aids in emotional and physical ailments. When I have been asked what my "secret" ingredient to my biscuits is, that make the dogs respond the way they do, I can only assure you that their is nothing harmful nor addictive in my product. However, if you can open your minds to the idea that every living thing possesses energy and that energy can be channeled into our work, then you will understand that your biscuits have been "Reiki Blessed."

"We need another and a wiser and perhaps more mystical concept of animals...we patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves.  And therein we err, and greatly err.  For the animal shall not be measured by man.  In a world older and more complete, gifted with extensions of the senses, we have lost, or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.  They are not brethren; they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travesty of the Earth"
- Henry Beston, 1888 - 1968
