Read All About It ~ Anna’s Q & A Response:
I am a Level II Reiki practitioner and will be taking a three-day course to become a Level III/Master this coming weekend. I have watched your video entitled “Reiki Energy Healing for Horses” a few times and just offered Reiki to an ailing geriatric horse (33 yrs.) with colic yesterday off and on for about 3 hours. He was in terrible pain. This horse, Bartender, belongs to a friend of mine. The vet picked him up last night so he could get an IV of fluids, as he would not drink any water. He just died today. His stable-mate, Stanley, is no doubt in terrible grief. They were inseparable. Would the love lessons Reiki exercise be the best to relieve Stanley of his grief and allow him to get it out fully? Or, if you can suggest a good Reiki hand position or protocol to facilitate this healing, I would really appreciate it.

Im not sure to begin with the congratulations part as you embark on your Reiki master attunement or to send my condolences for the loss of such a warrior. He was fortunate to have both your friend and yourself there to support him through this experience. Now in a peaceful place and on a new journey.
Reiki will certainly support Stanley as he experiences his own path and grief. As you offer the loving energy, he will know how to heal himself naturally. It may be that he appreciates the peace and calm for that moment or it may be that he releases all that which no longer serves him. We are not here to know if it will extend to a complete healing, but the offer of Reiki will support him during his grief. For me, I tend to offer Reiki as a whole, as you stand close-by you will intuitively know whether you place your hands in the “love lessons” positions or if that becomes too invasive at this time. As you begin to offer the energy, watch for Stanley to show you where to best place your hands and take his direct guidance. Speak softly and allow your thoughts to reach him.
