I had the honor of working with Topher, his brother Walter and their sister Nora last week. Topher and Walter are friendly, active dogs and Nora is a beautiful kitty. Their mom invited me over specifically to work with Topher but Reiki energy does not discriminate; it goes and flows wherever it is welcome and needed! Upon my arrival, Walter and Topher greeted me with puppy-like fervor while Nora assessed me from afar. I love cats for their moments like that—no nonsense, no pretense. After we talked about some goals for our session, Topher’s mom left us to get down to business!
I anointed myself with Believe essential oil and sat on the floor in their living room. As I started to tune in to the energy and my guides, Topher sat to my left, leaning his right side against my knee and crossed legs. The color blue swirled around his energy. As I worked on his crown chakra, I felt a sense of high alert and was compelled to send him the word “ease.” When I worked on his throat chakra, I shared with him the message from my guides that he can tell his mom what he needs and she will always hear him. I also connected with a heaviness on his right side, nothing to be concerned about per se, but just an awareness.
Topher bounced away after some time together and Walter walked over, almost like he had been waiting his turn. Walter sat in my lap and we connected. Both doggy brothers allowed lots of hands-on work throughout the session, probably the most I’ve ever had with new clients! I “got” the “message” that Walter was a lawyer or some sort of negotiator in a past life or, if he were human in this life, that would be his career path. I connected most with and worked on his sacral and root chakras.
Topher came back over and sat, somewhat at attention, in front of me this time. I just do my thing and those who need the energy line up! This time together, I was compelled to work more on his throat and solar plexus chakras. I worked through his legs, hips and corresponding root chakra as well, sending to him that he is secure. He “shared” with me that he senses a transition or a new family member. In our post-session conversation, Topher’s mom confirmed that someone did recently move into their home. Messages and connections like that are just confirmation for me that the energy is “working,” not that I ever doubted it anyway.
Nora stayed in the next room for the entirety of our session, regally grooming herself and never taking her eyes off of me. I got a “den mother” vibe from her, as if she feels responsible to keep order in the house. My closing messages, just from the space in general, were about a middle child energy and the number 7, all of which I shared with Topher, Walter and Nora’s mom in our chat after I closed out the session. It was truly a beautiful hour with this happy, energetic family. Topher, if you’re listening, just remember: ease!
