“Animal Reiki: Using Energy to Heal the Animals in Your Life” by Elizabeth Fulton and Kathleen Prasad (2006) earned the “I like it” rating from me. I’ve been recommending this book based on a skim read I did when I first purchased the book years ago. Now that I’ve read it I am really glad that I did. It is filled with inspiring stories that I read aloud to others because they were so special.
These ladies have clearly done a lot of Reiki on animals! It shines through in their respect for the animals they help, often in a shelter situation. I particularly enjoyed learning how they approach a new animal and even their own animals for permission each time they offered a treatment.
They also have the unique distinction of sharing techniques for giving Reiki to raccoons.
The appendix is full of good resources for finding Reiki teachers and further information on natural healing for animals.
This book will give anyone interested in Reiki a lot to grow on, whether you’ve been a teacher for years like me, or you’re just starting to learn about the amazing world of animals and Reiki.
