Reiki is not something that can only be used in designated sessions – it is something we can bring into the extraordinary as well as our everyday life events.

Offering Reiki in the process of crossing the rainbow bridge and transitioning from this physical lifetime for a horse, for example. Reiki at this time can offer relief from fear and pain while providing comfort and loving heart to heart connection. Reiki not only supports the horse, but the human and fellow herd members at the time of transition as well as the grieving process.

As Reiki is easily called upon outside of an actual session; we can energise food, water, interactions with others, to calm nerves, to aid in a meditation practice… many find that just being in the energy frees them up to a more beautiful and open hearted way of life.

Through Reiki we can find a way to live more from love, which can improve our relationships and the outcomes of our endeavours. Just like the energy itself, the ways Reiki can be implemented are limitless!
