Q & A – Doing Reiki While Stressed?
By Josslyn Streett, Reiki Master/Teacher for Rain Shadow Reiki in Sequim, WA
Thank you Josslyn for sending daily Reiki to my sick dogs. I am attuned to Reiki but I haven’t been using it to send healing to my dogs because I’m so stressed about them being sick. Will the energy be enough if am under stress.
I know that I need to heal myself first before I send healing to others, but I am not confident if I am worried like this, that they are getting what they need.

Our Divine Creator understands we humans are stressed much of the time, this is one of the reasons we have been gifted with Reiki at this time to help us deal with the high stress levels we are under while in human form and help us learn how to lower it naturally and spiritually with the help of Reiki.
If we all waited until we were not stressed or completely healed before doing Reiki on others, we would literally never be able to do Reiki. None of us are perfect and yet doing Reiki will help us get closer to spiritual enlightenment. One Reiki healing at a time.
The Reiki is Divine energy, we are just the channel. The Reiki is intelligent in its own right and knows exactly what is needed in each situation. Therefore, all we need to do is ask and be the channel, then allow the Reiki to do the healing. All healing comes from our Divine Source, not us. Therefore, Doing Reiki while stressed is better than not doing it at all. Right!?!
By doing Reiki on your sick dogs, the Reiki will heal your dogs in the way they need most, and the Reiki will flow through you, helping you to feel less stressed, thus healing you too. Reiki is a win/win situation. Everyone in the process receives exactly what they need. If you were stressed when you started, I bet you feel much calmer by the time you are done. Maybe you even have a ‘higher’ understanding of why your dogs and you are having to go through this period of dis-ease. But, just by knowing you are helping your dogs, you too will feel better.
Go ahead and do it, it will be exactly what your pets need and will most likely de-stress you in the process too.
P.S. If this was a Reiki Practitioner working on a client for money, the answer may be quiet different. This person was working on her own pets, not a paying client.
