Reiki, Cats & Vegetarians??

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I practice reiki* on my cats...
Does any one else practice reiki* on their cats when the cat is sick or injured?

How does everyone feel about energy healing & cats/animals?
I would appreaciate your opinions.

And also...
How many of us are vegetarian??

*I am not suggesting that reiki is a substitute for a vet or proper medication. I am suggesting it as an additional treatment to be used in conjunction with what the vet orders... ... (Like spiritual vitamins)

I have never heard of this reiki* before. I have heard of cat chiropractor and massage therapists, but have never heard of reiki.

What is it?

The knowledge that an unseen energy flows through all living things and is connected directly to the quality of health has been part of the wisdom of many cultures since ancient times. The existence of this "life force energy" has been verified by recent scientific experiments, and medical doctors are considering the role it plays in the functioning of the immune system and the healing process.

Reiki is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that allows everyone to tap into an unlimited supply of "life force energy" to improve health and enhance the quality of life.

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through you and surrounds you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit and creates many beneficial effects including relaxation and feelings of peace, security, and well-being.

Ki is the life force. It is also called the vital life force or the universal life force. This is the nonphysical energy that animates all living things. As long as something is alive, it has life force circulating through it and surrounding it; when it dies, the life force departs. If your life force is low, or if there is a restriction in its flow, you will be more vulnerable to illness. When it is high, and flowing freely, you are less likely to get sick. Life force plays an important role in everything we do. It animates the body and also is the primary energy of our emotions, thoughts and spiritual life.

Is Reiki a Religion?
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not.

My late father was a 2nd degree reiki. He had never performed reiki on my cats, but he had used it on me on several occasions. It definitely worked.

Both my husband and I are 3rd degree Reiki. While my husband seems to connect better with people, my calling seems to be animals. I havn't had to use it to "heal" any of the cats, but I will often use it to calm them down if traveling, stressed, or upset. It seems to work really well for all of them.

The treatment is an amazing thing. I remember being able to feel the heat coming off my dad's hands. It always kind of reminded me of the scene in the original "Karate Kid". My dad even once reikied his car when it wouldn't start!

My father, stepmother, and brother-in-law all do reiki, though I don't know what degree they are. Living in rural KY, there aren't many people around here who have ever heard of it and I don't know of anyone who practices it around here.

I get Reiki treatments for my FM, it's a wonderful healing source. my best friends mom is a Reiki Master, and especially being under her care (a person i love & trust) i always feel the benefits of her treatment.

i have never thought about the benefits it might bring to animals, though
i don't see why it wouldn't. it's certainly an interesting thought.
