inspires you and what legacy do you wish to leave behind? I think these are two
very important questions to me at least and most likely to many other people
Firstly I want to say that many of the people on my Facebook page for
Animal Reiki and their animal family members inspire me every day:) so thank you.
Also I am honoured to know I have inspired people through this group and my animal
healing work to open themselves up to healing others and even start their own
business. So thank you, this is part of my legacy!
for inspiration, there is someone looking at me right now, Rex my bearded
dragon who inspires me to be the best I can be and lets me
know when I need to take a step back and think things through. He may just be a
lizard to many people, but he is so much more to me.
there is Charlie, a corn snake who unfortunately passed away a number of years
ago. She was so loving, curious and intelligent and her passing saddend me
deeply. However, she is still around in spirit and in her daughter Jet, and she
inspired me to formally train in animal healing. So without her passing I may
have not set up my business and be helping others now.
brings me onto another part of my legacy, my work with animals. I know that
those I have helped either in person or via my wider work will be living
happier and hopefully healthier lives for it. This is an amazing legacy, to
help others, especially those that so often do not have a voice in our human
who in the human world inspires me? Well my very good friend and amazing healer
angel Julie Jingles Newton for one. She has so much wisdom and love to give and
is amazing with animals. Then there is Jess and David of the animal sanctuary
Wild Touch who help so many animals locally to me and are wonderful people.
They even have a young son who is already following in their footsteps.
are also famous people too, but not famous as in on telly! Jane Goodall for
one, an ambassador for our primate cousins and for living with the Earth rather
than just on it. Diana Fossy who may have been a little socially odd, but who
loved her gorillas with all her heart. Richard Leaky and family who researched
human evolution and found out so much about who we are as a species. The Dali
Lama who tries harder than any other religious figure to make us realise we
are one and tries to bring peace to the world though his teachings and books.
there are my family for whom without I wouldn’t be who I am and although we
argue and fight we always love each other. My families moto has always been ‘live
and let live’ and they nurtured my love of wildlife and let me keep many animals
in the home as a child. I hope that part of my legacy through my books is also
to show how wonderful family can be and honour my parents.
are many others who inspire me, too many to list. There are new individuals
every year. So who inspires you?

A large number of my clients are of the equine variety and
recently many of these have been pregnant mares. I find it wonderful to be
trusted to work with them and their unborn foals. Sometimes when doing a
session with the mare I have had the privilege of connecting with her as yet
unborn foal. Sometimes this has been me seeing the foal as an energetic image
in the photograph of the mare, as an extension to her aura or as a slightly
blurred image around her stomach area. This I feel is the mare letting me know
she is definitely in foal and that it is all well.

Other times, and these are the most special, I have been
able to connect directly to the foal and see the foal as I would the mother
during the session. One particular foal has sometimes come in place of her
mother when the mare has been tired and I have ended up sending Reiki to both
and communicating with both. One day this involved a singsong with them and the
mare’s best friend, a gelding. This was an amazing experience and it is these
moments that make my heart swell with joy and bring a smile to my face for days
So what do foals say? Well they sometimes want to let us
know they are ok, they want to tell their mum they can feel and that they look
forward to running with them and playing in the grass. They want to say hello
to their parents and herd and ask them to sing to them. They also get excited
and wriggle when someone they love is near and this can make their mums have a
sickly tummy so I have to calm them down. Their joy is infectious though.

I find it amazing that they want to connect and even let me
see them, although it is usually as a fully formed foal ready to be born even
if they are very early in the pregnancy. I also see the foal’s aura at times
and the colours here are so pure and pretty as come with innocence and such
pure connection to source that you get with new-borns (or those still growing).
Do you have an animal friend who is pregnant and you would
like to know how they are and how their little one/s are feeling? I would love
to connect with them if they wish me to and if you are interested you can find
out more about me on my website and Facebook page http://hamishs-holistic-healing.com

Preparation is the key to a clear connection with spirit and
the animal I am working with. Firstly I prepare the room and any crystals or
other tools I may use during the session. To do this I use a singing bowl,
chant ‘Ohm’ and wave a special feather about to cleanse specific objects. I
then ground myself by going into my meditation room and sitting on the floor
with my feet flat. I breathe deeply and imagine roots growing from my feet deep
into the earth and pure white energy flowing into my head through the crown
Chakra and down through my body. Once I feel ready I open my eyes and look at a
photograph of the animal I am working with that session. I send Reiki symbols
to the animal and imagine a loop of blue energy connecting us across time and
space while allowing our energies to remain separate. I then ask them if they
are ready to talk and let me feel their energy.
It is now where things will differ as the session is very
much based on what I feel and what the animal wants me to know at that time. I
will have the pre-session notes from their human which guide me as to where the
human would like me to focus or questions to ask the animal, but I take my lead
from the animal themselves. For example I can go into a session fully expecting
to give Reiki for joint and mobility issues and end up in a conversation with
the animal about their worries or what they would like for tea! Sometimes other
animals join in too, especially when they are close to my client such as in a
herd of horses. The other animals can be ones there now or friends who have
passed, but still maintain a close connection. Often they come if they feel I
need help getting to the route of an issue or to provide support to their

When working with Reiki and crystal energy I never assume
how the energy will flow or what I will be doing with my hands or visualising.
There are a few generic types of energy I send often for specific issues but
again these don’t suit everyone. For example I often send blue light to nerves
to help the flow of energy there if there are blockages, but sometimes that is
too strong and calming purple is required instead. I also send blue or gold
energy to bone and muscle if knitting is required for injury or to strengthen a
joint for instance, but sometimes they want another colour or the joint binding
in solid gold. For pain in bones and joints I often use what I call bubble-gum
or candyfloss pink energy to help cushion the area, and for foot issue I send
‘Reiki boots’ of energy to wrap the foot like a compress.
When using crystals I find I am often intuitively drawn to
use certain ones in a session or my client will describe a particular one they
would like. Sometimes this is by colour only and if I am not sure which they
need I can use my pendulum to scribe for one. There have been cases where they
have requested a crystal and I have no idea what they want so I end up going to
my books or the internet during the session and looking at those that match the
description until the client say ‘yes’. I find it amazing how animals know
about the internet, but I’m not sure why as it is all information flow

Communication can happen in many ways. I mainly get clairaudient
communication where I am literally having a conversation with the animal, but
increasingly this is accompanied by visualisation. It can be that I am sent
specific images of something they want to show me, or it can be a moving video
as if I am there with them. At times both myself and my client are in a
specific place that is neither of our homes, but a place I go to for deep
healing session with them and animal guides are often called in. With horse
clients I often call in unicorns, mostly my own guide, but sometimes I get
others. For dogs I call on wolves to help, cats often get panthers and birds
get owls or falcons. I will also call on spirit animals of my own who have
passed especially Charlie snake to help out. This is not just when working on
reptiles either; Charlie has helped many of my clients.
Recently I have been working on a number of cases where
there is a family of animals including humans involved and they want protection
adding to them or their home as part of the session. It is then I use a
combination of Reiki (gold or pure crystal quartz energy and symbols) and black
crystals to help grid protection around them. My dragon guides often come into
play here too, and more often my snakes who are past and present lend a hand by
going to watch over and help heal the client and their loved ones.
Whatever the content of a session I end by brushing and
sealing the aura of my client to remove any remaining energy that needs to go
and seal in the good work we have done. I then bring myself back into the room,
scrubbing out the Reiki symbols to break the connection and thank the animal,
Reiki and any guides for their help. I then re-cleanse the tools used and the
room and myself using the singing bowl and my flute or pipes. The music of the
flute and pipes brings me a sense of calm and closes the session nicely.
Writing up my notes immediately also helps to close the session and bring me
back to reality so to speak. If needed I will add black obsidian crystals to my
socks for a while to help ground me fully post a session and I always need to
drink a large glass of water.
hope you have found this interesting and if you would like me to connect with

My new book Tales from a Tortoise is now available on Amazon. It was written from conversations with tortoises and gives an insight into how the find life in captivity and tips for good tortoise care. I hope it will give people a new appreciation for tortoises and open up aspects of their world even current tortoise lovers may not expect.
Once I sell enough to make it worthwhile 10% of the profits will go to Re-herp Foundation in memory of Henk Zwerport who sadly passed last year. Re-herp helps to maintain captive populations of the rarer tortoise species and links to projects occurring in their natural habitat where captive tortoises will one day be released.
