I read this touching story by Michele Santom on the SARA site, Shelter Animal Reiki Association. This is the story of Michele having pets as ‘show’ animals and then owning a pet grooming salon. She was focused on the outside beauty of animals.
One day she was jolted to awaken when a vet tech told her that a particular Maltese she was showing was “not happy” and she was warned to get her home as soon as possible. At that time, Michele was so wrapped up in all the reasons why she loved dog shows and failed to see that this little dog did not.
In her search to find something to give back to the animals she discovered Reiki, animal Reiki. And finally came across SARA (Shelter Animal Reiki Association). Offering this wonderful Reiki to shelter animals, what a great way to give back. She started taking courses with two very accomplished ladies Kathleen Prasad and Leah D’Ambrosio from SARA.
This connection (energy) is available to all of us if we take the time to be still and listen with our hearts. You, also, can give this gift of love to your animals. Schedule a session for your animal friend or better yet learn these wonderful, life changing techniques so you can share this special connection with your beloved pet.
