What is Animal Reiki Healing?

What is animal reiki? My view of animal reiki is a little different from most reiki practitioners. I share space with an animal and let the animal lead the session. I share what an intro to what I've learned in episode 41 of the For Animals. For Earth. podcast.  

My view of animal reiki is a little different from most reiki practitioners.  I’ve learned the Let Animals Lead® method by Kathleen Prasad, in which we share space with an animal and let the animal lead the session.  Together we focus on meditation and going within for healing, rather than immediately placing our hands on an animal.  We let the animal decide how the session will go.

I truly believe that a power higher than us connects our souls to each other, the animals, and the earth around us.  I see an animal reiki session as an opportunity to quiet our minds, calm our hearts, and sit together for the higher good of the people, and the animals, present.
