With a very open mind, a couple of years ago I asked a Reiki Master to come and ‘work’ on one of my horses who seemed to have some very emotional/ sensitivity issues.
(I actually had a trial session with her on myself to see what it was all about – nothing spectacular but very relaxing nonetheless).
Well, I can honestly say, that I was astonished at the results!!!! Initially my horse was strongly reluctant to let the woman anywhere near him (itself a strange reaction) as she just held her hands a few inches from his body, but after about 5 minutes or so of her sending him ‘energy’ (which she described as ‘pouring out of her’) he stood stock still, head down and literally went to sleep.
This continued for about 30 minutes, at which point, he woke up very suddenly, stretched like I have never seen him stretch before, yawned for all he was worth, looked around for titbits, and stood as the most relaxed and happy chappie he hadn’t been for a very long time.
We had a second session the following week, with absolutely no reaction at all; at which point the RM said he just didn’t need it.
Not tried it since but always open to the suggestion and certainly wouldn’t poo-poo it. Its one of those mysterious, inexplicable things that may work for some, not others. And let’s be honest, it certainly can’t/doesn’t do any harm
