I’ve admired Josie and Alexa for a while via social media, so of course I was excited to meet them in person when their mom and fellow Rescue volunteer Kim asked me to give the girls a Reiki treatment. Although they are sisters who live side-by-side, Josie and Alexa are very different girls when it comes to personality and energy. After Kim introduced me to her bunny-daughters and went over the basics of their dynamic, I anointed my palms and third-eye chakra with lavender oil and began our treatment.
I started seated in front of both pens and let the girls guide me as to whom to treat first. Josie, with her beautiful up-ears and spotted fur, invited me into her area first and with loving excitement. I added 2 drops of Envision oil, one of my newer favorites, to my palms to help open the channels between Source, me and Josie. The first message she communicated with me: “When mom is happy, then I’m happy!” (a common theme from our companion animals—really makes you think about how much our energies and experiences influence those around us). Josie is a curious girl, active and in love with her toys (she has a lot of them!). Her energy is that of pure love. If she could talk, she would never stop—in a bubbly, endearing way of course! The hands-on parts of our session were extra nice as Josie’s fur is unbelievably soft; I’ve patted soft fur before but NOTHING like this.
Lop-eared Alexa may have soft fur too… but I wouldn’t know, because she did NOT want any hands-on treatment! Alexa has a guarded energy, so I chose Peace & Calming, another oil blend, to hands for our moments together. Although she loves and trusts her family, she is very hesitant around those she doesn’t yet know. I did my best to connect to her; despite her reservations, she was reception to the energy, just at a distance. She quickly communicated with me that she’s the “older child,” which I later confirmed with Kim. Alexa knows her beauty and doesn’t share the young, curious energy that Josie has. She’s more refined but none-the-less comfortable and loved!
I closed our session back where I started, between the two girls, thanking them, Kim and the rest of their family for allowing me to share Reiki energy with them. A truly beautiful family… I am grateful to know them. And I’ll get to treat Alexa hands-on one day!!
