Every week, I am honored to be able to offer Reiki Energy and meditation to the animals at Baltimore Humane Society, and the week I will share about in this article was no exception.
Several of my sessions during this particular week was spent with 2 adorable kittens that have Cerebellar Hypoplasia. Because of the Hypoplasia, they shake and wobble a lot. The Cerebellar Hypoplasia, also called CH, is muscle coordination that’s not fully developed. They feel no pain. They play, eat, sleep, groom just like all kittens and cats.
Mussel and Oyster will live a healthy life, but of course, the goal is for them to be adopted sooner than later. During my first session with them (they are together in a well-padded floor, lots of beds and toys to play with!), they were very reserved and did not come over to me, but after 15 minutes they did take a nap which lasted for 30 minutes or so.
This is one of the signs that an animal is saying, “yes” to the Reiki energy. I thanked them both for sharing such a wonderful healing space and they continued to nap as I quietly left their area.
The 2nd session was amazing! Once inside their room (which is yellow-perfect for healing and soothing), I brought a cushion with me, to sit/kneel on during my sessions and immediately as I situated myself. Mussel, the grey, and white kitten came over to me and made himself comfortable in my lap!
The connection with his purring energy opened the pathway to go into an even deeper meditation!
His brother Oyster was napping when I came in their room. Sharing this energy, I noticed Mussels’ shaking of his head was much less, and when he did decide to move around the room to get something to eat, he was slightly more stable in his walk. He welcomed the camera as you can see in the video below!
A little later, Oyster woke up and came over to me as well, though he was more interested in my seat cushion and the ties which became a play toy.
Movement and activity is a common sign that an animal is accepting the healing from the Reiki energy and meditation.
After a couple of minutes, Oyster went over and ate and drank some water and went right back to napping. Trusting the Reiki energy to go where it needed to go, it’s a blessing and honor to witness a calmness in them both. For the 45 minutes, the shaking and wobbliness had decreased, especially while they were sitting and eating.
(The video below was recorded the following week from the visit I detailed above)
And the best part? They were both adopted together shortly after our sessions to a loving, and compassionate family!
It is such a gift and a blessing to be part of an animal’s life and sharing Reiki energy with them.
Yes, both Oyster and Mussel will live a long and healthy life. It was such an honor to be in their presence!
Thank you for reading this and feel free to share too, so others may learn and benefit from the gifts of Reiki energy and meditation for animals.
