On Wednesday, I had the honor of sharing Reiki with a wonderful, diverse family. When I say diverse, I’m taking size and species—a large rabbit, a tiny hamster and a typically-sized cat. When I arrived, I spent some time talking with their mom S. Rabbit Piper was hopping around, hamster Tyler was snuggling in my hands and cat Remy was nowhere in sight. I explained to S. that whether Remy came out of hiding or not, he would still receive whatever energies he was open to. Reiki is total magic like that.
I anointed my shoulders with White Angelica oil and gently rubbed a few drops of Valor oil between my palms. S. had expressed some concern for Piper’s occasional nervous and anxious behaviors, so Valor was calling to me for this session. I sat on the floor near to Piper’s pen with Tyler in a small cage to my left and Remy still lurking in the shadows. Our session began with a heavy energy, but not in a bad way—more of a stable, solid kind of heavy. I was drawn to the world “release” on repeat. My root chakra was strongly in play here. I felt very rooted in this environment, which is not a feeling I typically experience. Again, the magic of Reiki: I was “translating” the rooted, connected bond of this family.
After connecting with the energy of the space, I began to work directly with Tyler. He “told” me the words “heal,” “peace” and “curious.” He expressed the desire for his mom S. to read to him (totally adorable). I was drawn to his right side and in our after-session recap I told S. to be attentive to that.
Next up, Piper, an alum from our Rescue group. Piper didn’t want any hands-on work, which is common for prey animals. He “told” me that he likes to hide a lot. The energies drew my attention to his left eye, which I confirmed with S. in our recap that he had issues with that eye earlier in the year. I had the most beautiful vision while working on Piper and his enclosure. I don’t often see pictures through my work, as I’m more strongly claircognizant and clairsentient. As I sent Reiki specifically to Piper’s pen, I saw what I can best describe as tubes of rainbow-colored rain with stars inside. I invited the rainbow rain to flow through and around the home, showering the entire family and space with this stunning light and energy. Piper came closest to me at this point. He’s a cautiously receptive boy. He feeds off of the energies around him. I sent all I could to help ease his nerves.
I work mostly with my eyes closed, but they popped open at this point in our session and there was Remy. I could feel the energy of the entire house follow Remy. He needs to be the boss. He came to me, close but not too close, acknowledged my presence, then walked away. Piper quickly followed. If Tyler wasn’t in a cage, he would have done the same. That boss attitude—is that a cat thing in general? Or just a Remy thing? I’ll let S. decide how to handle that from here!
I closed the session with love, light and the greatest good for all beings and objects. What a beautiful family and a beautiful afternoon. Thank you S. for allowing me to share Reiki with your family. Hoppy Birthday. Much Love.
