During a session I am able to connect with the animal on a telepathic level. Animals share their thoughts and feelings with me through pictures, words and even by allowing me to feel their physical symptoms in my own body. I am then able to communicate these 'messages' to their human companion. This is done with the best intentions for both the person and animal. I do not judge any message I receive and ask permission from the animal to share the information with their human companion. I find that animals only share information that will help their human companion understand how they can help them physically and/or emotionally. Sometimes just being able to share information makes the animal feel much better.
Communicating with an animal can help me to understand more about any emotional difficulties, physical ailments or behavioral issues they may have. Often behavioral issues arise because the animal is in physical pain. Understanding this can help their human companion seek the best possible treatment for the animal whether that be a visit to the vet, animal chiropractor or further Reiki treatments. I do not diagnose ailments and my services are intended to compliment veterinary care, not replace it.
I prefer to know very little about the animal or the situation prior to offering a treatment. I feel that this allows the animal to share freely whatever information they feel they wish me to relate to their human companion. It also allows me to trust the information I am receiving without having an 'agenda' of what the issues may be.
