The Heavenly Paws provides Reiki services that enhance the quality of life for your four legged best friend. These therapies can have profound effects on the physical and mental well-being of people and animals. The results of touch therapies can be immediate as well as manifest over time.
Giving a Reiki treatment involves the practitioner putting his or her hands lightly on or near the dog's or cats body. Different hand positions are used, depending on the condition being treated. Often the animal will enter a state of deep relaxation or sleep. Animals love Reiki. They seem intuitively to understand its power to heal.
'Reiki' is Japanese for 'universal energy'. A Reiki practitioner channels this Universal Life Energy in order to achieve the highest healing good within the receiver. It is a complementary form of healing that supports the body's ability to heal itself, relieves pain, and promotes relaxation. Reiki can be used in conjunction with any other form of treatment, medical or veterinary.
Reiki practitioners aspire the five principles:
1. Just for today, do not worry
2. Just for today, do not get angry
3. Honor your parents, teachers and elder
4. Earn Your Living Honestly
5. Show Gratitude to every Living Thing
Dr. Mikao Usui, founder of Reiki healing
All Animals Can Benefit from Reiki
All animals, whether in a shelter or in happy homes, can benefit from the healing aspects of Reiki. For healthy animals , Reiki can help maintain energetic balance and promote health and well-being. For animals suffering from illness or injury, either physical or mental, Reiki is a powerful complement to both conventional and alternative healing methods. For dying animals, Reiki gives them gentle, loving support in this process. For a person who has a dog, works with dogs, or volunteers at a shelter, Reiki is a wonderful healing tool to be able to offer to your animal friends.
There are seven centers of energy in your pet. Reiki for dogs focuses on changing the energy from one center to another to bring about balance. The hand positions control the Chi and ultimately free your dog's aura while allowing for a continual energy flow. The seven centers consist of the Root chakra, Navel chakra, Solar Plexus chakra, Heart chakra, Throat chakra, Third eye, and the Crown chakra. These charkas are specifically connected to different glands in your dog. Reiki for your dog will make the glands release hormones directly into the blood stream and control all aspects of your dogs daily activities and healthy thinking.
Freeing the aura is a major part of using Reiki for dogs. Before Reiki, your dog's aura might only extend a few decimeters outside the body. After performing Reiki on your dog its aura will resonate about 2-3 meters. There are several different layers of body in the aura that Reiki will expose for your dog.
Physical Body: the most tangible part of your dog's body. Here, Reiki for your dog will ease some of the most common fears about the physical body-sickness, aging and death.
Etheric Body: connected to the Root chakra, it is made up of a thin invisible layer that is only 2 cm thick that surrounds your dog's body. This is where the energy is reflected when Reiki for your dog gets it flowing from chakra to chakra. Many of your dog's dreams are found here.
Emotional Body: connected to the Navel chakra it serves as an egg shaped emotion reflector that contains the other two bodies. Emotions like hope, happiness, love, anger, and sorrow are all found here. Reiki for your dog can release these emotions from past problems your dog has suppressed and create an empty canvas for your dog to express freely.
Mental Body: connected to the Solar Plexus chakra, reflects logic, mind, and intelligent thinking. Reiki for dogs helps shape their reality.
Astral Body: the bridge between the spiritual realm and the physical world. Reiki for dogs will help them express unconditional love.
Etheric Template Body: connected to the Throat chakra, this is where your dog has its thought processes. Reiki for your dog will connect its past, and present to its future.
Celestial Body: connected to the third eye chakra, mirrors the subconscious mind. It uses your dog's intuition to bring about higher feelings. Reiki for your dog will allow your pet to have a love that goes beyond individual to universal.
Casual Body: connected to the Crown chakra, is the last body where the initial creative impulses begin. Reiki for your dog will have your dog's soul communicating with its conscious mind and mental body.
Reiki for your dog is a gentle but powerful healer. It will balance your dog's energy, organs, and glands. Reiki for dogs has proven to strengthen immune systems, relieve pain, clears toxins, and enhances personal awareness while relaxing your dog
