In this video, the practitioner walks us through how she approaches dogs and cats with Reiki. It requires a gentle, open approach where one asks permission from the animal to accept the treatment and allows it to decide when it is completed. If the animal is too sensitive for hands-on treatment, allow your hands to hover very slightly above the fur. In some positions the animal will press themselves into your hands, and in others it will seem as if they cannot tolerate being touched. Allow the animal to feel comfortable and accept your energy; allow your hands to go where the energy is needed. Never force an animal to stay in one spot. They should never be tied off so their freedom of choice is taken away. All beings have the choice to accept Reiki or not.

Stay present and aware of the animal’s body language and eye movements throughout the treatment. Always work safely to avoid injury to you or the animal. When the treatment is complete, the animal will move away from you. This treatment can also be performed for birds, fish, rabbits and small creatures in cages by simply placing your hands around the cage and beaming the energy to the animal.

Brian Brunius demonstrates this great technique for delivering Reiki to a seated person when you do not have a massage table for your treatment. Using this method you will not strain your back, as so often happens when doing Reiki on a bed, a sofa, or on the floor.

Edited from a transcript of a tape recording of Mrs. Hawayo Takata.
The recording was made in 1979 when Mrs. Takata was 78 years old.

Mrs. Hawayo Takata asked her teacher, “Dr. Hayashi, will you permit and consent that I have one class free for all the people that have helped me through this year of sorrow and illness. I would like to teach them and give them a free lesson in Reiki so that they may benefit.”

Dr. Hayashi responded, “Now that you are well, you can return your gratitude by giving them treatments when they need it, but I would not hold a class for them. They will never use it for it will have no value to them because they received it free.”

Having heard that she said to herself, “Well, I have to try.” And so she gave free lessons to her best friends and waited.

One day as she was hanging laundry one friend came by and said, “My daughter didn’t go to school today because she had a little stomach ache. So I brought her to you.”

Mrs. Takata asked, “Did you give her a treatment? Didn’t you even try?”

She said, “No, why should I? You’re the expert that lives next to me. It’s easier to bring her to you than to do it myself because I know she’ll get well.”

And so that was one disappointment.

And then on the other side of the town, another friend said, “My daughter has the flu and the teacher said go home because it’s contagious. So I brought my daughter; I want you to give her a treatment.”

Mrs. Takata asked, “Didn’t I teach you?”

She said, “Yes, but why should I use it when I have a car and can run to you? You’re the expert here, and when you do it I know she is going to get well.”

Mrs. Takata responded, “You never even tried to use it?”

She said “No.”

There wasn’t any gratitude whatsoever.

Mrs. Takata hid in her house and cried. And then she looked towards Japan, and bowed her head to Dr. Hayashi, and also towards Dr. Usui’s grave. She said, “Forgive me for being wrong. I did not help any person because they did not accept this gratefully and spiritually, because they didn’t spend a penny. It is very sad, but I will turn them down hereafter.

On Saturday, January 31st, 2015, Christopher Tellez of the San Francisco Reiki Center hosted a one-day conference featuring Phyllis Lei Furumoto, the Grandmaster of Usui Shiki Ryoho, the traditional practice of Reiki brought to America by her grandmother, Hawayo Takata. More than fifty Reiki practitioners and masters attended the event. A wonderful lunch was catered by students of the SF Reiki Center.

The theme of the workshop was “Exploring Reiki as a Spiritual Practice: An Individual Choice.” The flyer for the conference offered these details about the topic for the day.
