Animal Reiki and Communication

Killy & Reiki

Equine therapy and ReiKi on KillieAt the end of September as a family we went to Pony park City in Holland. This place has 300 hundred ponies and everyone who stays in their chalet type houses gets a pony (if they want one) for one, two or more days.
Each pony is ridden without saddle and only a head collar and rope as bridle. The staff are great at the place and the ponies are well cared for, though it is a tough schedule for the ponies.
We met our  Shetland pony cross bred "Killy" on saturday morning and boy he was bad tempered. However i am not surprised as he had had a long season of different people every week trying to ride, some with a lot of skill and some with no idea at all.
Killy just saw us as another "lot" he had to deal with.
In the beginning on the Saturday morning he refused to move, tried to buck Ailee off frequently (and managed twice), tried to bite and to kick us should we get close enough to his back end.
I brought him back to the chalet and had an attempt at grooming him, bribery with bits of horse treats did help as well as starting to introduce him to Reiki. (he did not like it in the beginning and i had to avoid teeth on a few occasions.) but after a few minutes he began to relax.
After a small rest following the Reiki Ailee rode him and came off a few times but he had calmed down and seemed to enjoy "working".
We once again brought him back to the chalet and this is when i was able to give him a full treatment. Plus for the first time he allowed me to communicate with him.
He told me how unhappy and unloved he was, he felt used but not loved,this explained all his behaviour and more.
He began to sleep during his treatment and totally succumbed to the energy with his nose inches off the ground as he slept.
The afternoon ride went better and Ailee only came off twice when Killy put his neck down and she slid off! He enjoyed trotting through the wooded track and having a small jump, it was a great experience for Ailee too to ride bare back.
At 4pm however he decided to head back to the stables and took off with Ailee on board at canter, managed to unseat her and kept going. We caught him in the end after a bit of a chase and although Ailee was winded she was fine.
We went into the small area where you can get a drink ect with him and as i sat waiting on a drink i asked him "why" he needed to head home "his reply was "he was scared" I asked why he was scared? he told me that he had a friend who had gone away, i believe he was scared of getting close to anything or one again.
I casually gave him some more Reiki and when another pony was tied up next to us they began to groom each other very chilled.
We gave Killy back to the staff at the coral at 5.30 that night and although he was tired he was quite relaxed.
On Sunday morning he was pretty bad tempered again but did come to greet us.
He was, after a bit of hay and a groom a very calm, contented Pony. Not once did he unseat Ailee or even try to,he trotted to voice command, he allowed me to groom him, plait his tail and mane and even dress him up for the fancy dress parade!He enjoyed a riding lesson and began to walk and trot with his head held high
He even enjoyed his first 99 ice cream and licked all traces off the table like a big dog.
We reluctantly gave our "Killy back on Sunday evening 3 hours later than we had planned to, there were tears from both Ailee and I as we did not want to leave him.
The power of Reiki, TLC and communication showed again what it can do and how much it can help. Killy taught us all alot and we loved him as much as we could.  
We return again to spent the weekend with him on the 4th November, i have told him we are coming and i hope to one day own him.        

Working at the Stables

I enjoy taking my daughter to the stables every weekend, she enjoys the ride and i enjoy working with and on the horses.
This week Ailee was riding a lovely pony called Speedy. Speedy is definitely part Shetland pony and has been a riding school pony for a long time, so knows all the tricks and the best way to up end a treat bucket and definitely how to "not" get tacked up.
However yesterday she was incredibly compliant!!! this had me wondering as normally it's fun to work on her as you never know what she will do next.
Once tacked up (without the usual games) I started to ask her questions, it turns out she had a very sore neck and crest. Sure enough when  looked at her crest she had a sore spot and her neck appeared tight.
I released most of her bridle, undid her girth and gave her Reiki. Speedy gave a big sigh and unusually stood stock still with her head low down. I found the cause of her sore neck was coming from the base of her mane, (must have been from being ridden badly tacked up).
I worked very hard with Reiki for 15 minutes, speaking to her all the time, asking how she felt and letting her move her body around my hands to "show" me where she wanted the Reiki.
After the 15 minutes, I left her for 5 minutes just to chill then went back and quietly went to do her tack back up. This she let me do easily, then quickly whipped round and tried to bite me.
This did make me laugh not only did she feel better enough to be "naughty" but she could move her neck freely again.
And the lesson? well pony and rider had a wonderful time with my daughter grinning from ear to ear, but boy Speedy made her work hard.

Equine Reiki and Animal Communication

Finally now life has settled down i was able to go to the local stables here in the area and while Ailee (my daughter) rode i was able to go and talk with some of the lovely horses they have there.
This is where animal communication is wonderful because there are no language barriers and no proper sentence structure as there are normally when i try and speak dutch, they and i just communicate.
I was walking past a wee ponies stall when i got shouted at by them, not aloud but as if someone had shouted "hey you there"in my head i stopped and went to them put my hand out and quietly asked how could i help them? They just rested their muzzle in my hand. I offered them reiki and for 5 to 10 minutes everyone else in the place disappeared as i gave this lovely lad reiki. Once he had had enough he lifted his head, nodded at me and then went back to eating his straw. As i left i heard his voice say "thank you"
The next guy i spoke to feeling very lonely, his owner had not yet been into see him and he felt very left out. Again i offered reiki and for a wee while he just remained still apart from licking and chewing (a sign of a treatment) then he stepped back and went over to the corner where his water was turning his bum to me, a sure sign he had had enough. Later however when i went to collect Ailee i got slightly nibbled as i went past, what a lovely thanks  x x
