Have you ever thought about your pets spiritual well being?
Read on to learn how EFT & Reiki for pets can help your pet find spiritual peace.
They can dig up you lawn, eat your flowers, tear apart your new leather shoes, scratch a beloved piece of furniture, drop your precious china on the floor, and generally make messes and more work for you, but you love them anyway. Who is this creature? It’s none other than the family pet.
Whether they have fur or feathers, scales or spikes, for many of us, our pets become part of our family. We tolerate their occasional disasters or early morning wake up calls because we receive a rare and precious gift back, the gift of unconditional love and acceptance.
Okay so it may be hard to tell if your pet fish or exotic lizard really loves you, but they do trust you to take care of them and they depend on you. An Ipsos Reid poll shows that 83% of Canadians consider their pet to be a family member, with 4 in 10 believing that pets can be a good substitute for human companionship. So your pet is seen as a member of your family. You make sure it has all its basic needs met, now what?
EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUES AND REIKI
What about your pets spiritual well being? Don’t worry, you don't have to meditate with your cat or try to find your dogs inner puppy! (unless you really want to) A combination of Reiki and EFT can be beneficial for pets, and it is especially helpful for pets that can be held and touched comfortably. If you want to try it this your lizard, fish or other type of non furry pet, please use appropriate precautions, and a gentle touch as always.
Reiki can be used on hyper pets with great success. The ancient practice of Japanese energy healing can help animals to become calmer, happier and more content. When working with any animal, knowing their temperament is important before you start any sort of energy work or healing modality. if you have a volatile pet, or are trying to help someone else’s pet, always proceed with caution or call upon a professional with more experience.
EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique is a form of acupressure which is used to help with many emotional and physical issues. Moving is one life event that is very stressful for pets. EFT techniques designed specifically for pets can help them to be calmer in their new home, and relieve separation anxiety that may arise from being in new surroundings.
HIRE A PROFESSIONAL
If you are looking to hire an EFT expert to work with your pet, you need to know that a gently massage on the required points, instead of the standard "tapping" practice that is used on humans, is the best course of action for most pets, especially the elderly or nervous pet.
Remember, many animals will not stay still for long periods of time for treatments, so you may be looking at 5-10 minute sessions at a time over the course of a few weeks before you will see the full effects. Although most animals will respond positively to both Reiki and EFT as they can sense that you are not there to harm them, and only want the best for them, some may be incredibly resistant, especially if they have suffered a prolonged illness or have a history of abuse. Be patient with them and send them positive energy and love.
