End of Life SupportThe animals in our lives bring us so much joy, that it's always difficult to think about the time they'll no longer be with us. Their lives are shorter than ours, so when we share our lives and homes with our animals, it's something will happen, and sometimes more than once.
Since becoming a Reiki practitioner for animals, and learning how to communicate intuitively, I've found that I've been led down a path where I'm able to help animals pass on in peace. Of course it's a very sad thing to do, but it's also very beautiful to be able to guide the animal, pass on messages between the animal and their family, and finally lead all to peace and acceptance. It really is the ultimate healing.
Since the first time I helped, I'm finding that people are coming to me more and more, often when the animal is very poorly. This is ideal, as I can discover how the animal is thinking and feeling, and help them to feel peace and gain relief from any discomfort. A few days later the carer will often contact me to let me know they've decided it's time for the animal to pass on - and this has given them a few days to come to terms with the decision together and say their goodbyes. And in this time I'm often given messages to pass on to the human carer, mostly of thanks and love.
For those who are in the Manchester area, if you like, I can accompany you to the vet for the final journey, and be with you and your pet, letting Reiki flow as they peacefully pass on. So many people - as well as the animals - find this very comforting. And for those who prefer to remain in the waiting room, I can be with your pet at the very end.
Meantime, I have published a couple of Blog posts that you might find of interest:

This is a lovely poem I recently came across............
"From Friend To Friend" (Author unknown)
You're giving me a special gift,
So sorrowfully endowed,
And through these last few cherished days,
Your courage makes me proud.
But really, love is knowing
When your best friend is in pain,
And understanding earthly acts
Will only be in vain.
So looking deep into your eyes,
Beyond, into your soul,
I see in you the magic, that will
Once more make me whole.
The strength that you possess,
Is why I look to you today,
To do this thing that must be done,
For it's the only way.
That strength is why I've followed you,
And chose you as my friend,
And why I've loved you all these years...
My partner 'til the end.
Please, understand just what this gift,
You're giving, means to me,
It gives me back the strength I've lost,
And all my dignity.
You take a stand on my behalf,
For that is what friends do.
And know that what you do is right,
For I believe it too.
So one last time, I breathe your scent,
And through your hand I feel,
The courage that's within you,
To now grant me this appeal.
Cut the leash that holds me here,
Dear friend, and let me run,
Once more a strong and steady dog,
My pain and struggle done.
And don't despair my passing,
For I won't be far away,
Forever here, within your heart,
And memory I'll stay.
I'll be there watching over you,
Your ever faithful friend,
And in your memories I'll run,
...a young dog once again
