How I undertake a Reiki session

Animal Reiki and communicationPosted by Stacey Adele Sun, March 19, 2017 13:57:34

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 friend.

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 after-all!

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.

I hope you have found this interesting and if you would like me to connect with your animal family check out my website and Facebook page at http://hamishs-holistic-healing.com

New Book written by tortoises!

Animal Reiki and communicationPosted by Stacey Adele Sat, January 14, 2017 12:34:58
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.

Get to know StaceyPosted by Stacey Adele Sat, January 14, 2017 12:26:18

Last week a colleague at the day job asked ‘what day does a week start on, a Sunday or a Monday?’ I’m not sure of his reason, but we all had a different view and reason as to why we would say a particular day. For instance calendars in the UK generally are laid out to start a week on a Sunday. However, some of us consider a week to start on a Monday as this is when we go back to the day job after a weekend off. You might be wondering what this has to do with spirituality and my blog. Well science, ancient cultures and karma all tell us (in my view) that cycles are more important than linear time.

In science there are many cycles; for instance the cycle of life and death and the associated recycling of material to the earth when something dies. In a forest this can mean a tree falling and as it rots it provides food for insects, fungi and soil bacteria via the Nitrogen Cycle. This in turn provides the minerals required for other plants to grow. The cycle of the planets around the sun, and moons around a planet are born out of physics and are generally regular. On earth these cycles provide day and night, the seasons and the movement of the tides, thus affecting how life and culture evolved to a large degree. There is also the potential for longer time scale cycles regarding the ‘birth’ and ‘death’ of stars and potentially the universe itself, all providing new matter and energy to be used elsewhere.

The cycles of earth and the wider universe are also discussed in the Mayan calendar and associated beliefs. The Mayan calendar was used by a number of cultures around at the time and it still in use in some cases today. It consists of three separate corresponding calendars, the Long Count, the Tzolkin (divine calendar) and the Haab (civil calendar). In all three cases time is represented and measured cyclically. The Long Count is their astronomical calendar which was used to track longer periods of time - universal cycles. Each represented 2,880,000 days (about 7885 solar years). The Mayans believed that the universe is destroyed and then recreated at the start of each cycle.

The concept of Karma and past lives affecting your current one, and your evolution to higher spiritual plane, are linked to cycles as well as linear evolution. Your spiritual body (etheric body or soul) will cycle through different lifetimes atoning for past sins, gathering knowledge and experience, and potentially taking many physical forms until it is ready to ascend to another plane of existence.

So cycles underlie a lot of what happens and can be seen in natural and in human constructs of time. Therefore, does a week start on a Monday or a Sunday? Well in reality it doesn’t really matter. What is more important is you make the most of your time in this life cycle and live each day full of wonder!

Losing an animal friend

Animal Reiki and communicationPosted by Stacey Adele Fri, December 09, 2016 18:10:10
Losing an animal friend is always tough, but especially so when you have had them in your family for many years or the loss is unexpected. I have had my fair share of loss of animal friends, increased by taking in rescues with health issues. It doesn't get easier, but it can be helped by using Reiki and other forms of energy therapy.

I recently sent distance Reiki and communication to a horse who became ill suddenly and the vets could not find exactly what was wrong. Unfortunately she deteriorated quickly and eventually the decision was taken to put her to sleep. I know however from feedback from close friends that the horse and her human benefitted from the Reiki being sent not just by me but many people who all wanted to help.

It helped to ease some of the pain, to help the human know they were supported and many people were coming together in unity for them. I also know from the horse that she welcomed the healing energy as it comforted her and eased the pain, keeping her calm and making it easier on both her and her human. It also gave her the strength to decide to fight and also the strength to know she could let go if it became too much as people were there for her human and that death does not mean the end.

It was a privilege to help such a brave and special soul. xxx
