I love this quote because it helps us to remember what a miracle life is! For me, my animal Reiki practice is something that brings magic and miracles to my life every single day.
Breathing in, I calm body and mind. Breathing out, I smile. Dwelling in the present moment I know this is the only moment.
-Thich Nhat Hanh
The meditative gifts of animal Reiki practice are many, however I’d like to focus on the gifts of healing brought by connecting to the earth and sky. For me, the earth and sky are at the core of many Reiki practices because they are two of the purest qualities of our spiritual essence, and as such are keys to our wellness. To touch earth and sky energy within one’s own nature is to access the ability to relieve suffering and find healing in the deepest layers of being. Earth and sky practice brings balance, peace and harmony. Our animals can also benefit from our self-practice; when we invite them into this space of wellbeing and harmony, we can support their self-healing too.
