I’m so excited for tomorrow: The inaugural World Animal Reiki Day will finally be here! This special day, organized by me and the volunteer members of my Shelter Animal Reiki Association (SARA), is a wonderful opportunity for all of us to help make a better future for the animals in our world. The day is celebrated on February 5 to honor Dakota Prasad, the special puppy (pictured above) I rescued from animal control. Dakota was my best friend, my first animal Reiki teacher and the inspiration behind SARA—and February 5 was his birthday.
Let’s celebrate together! You are invited to join me at BrightHaven animal sanctuary and hospice in California on February 5 for a special World Animal Reiki Day event. I will also be on Google+ for a live message of healing and light for the global Reiki community. I truly hope to see you there!
Another way to celebrate: Today is the last day to enter and vote in the World’s Most Adorable Reiki Animal Photo Contest (details on my Facebook page). Share a photo of the cutest animal you’ve offered Reiki to; the winner will receive three of my books, signed by me, as well as a complimentary distant animal Reiki treatment (a $100 value).
My heart is already bursting with love and light, thanks to all of the messages and support from my tribe around the world. I already know the day is going to be an incredible success: Here’s a sampling of some of the upcoming World Animal Reiki Day events happening internationally (and if you have one to add, include it in the comments below):
