Monk is a dear cat who I initially was called to work with because he was urinating outside of the box. I taught his owner, Suzanne, how to do some of the TTouches, and then the subsequent appointments I did with him were Reiki sessions. He came to recognize the energy and would completely relax into it, stretching out on the bed with a look of bliss.
More recently though, he was diagnosed with chronic renal failure. I had not seen Monk for quite a while, and Suzanne had called me to cat sit for Monk and his cat girlfriend Jade, and when I saw Monk, I felt so strongly that I wanted to help. I could see that Monk’s appetite and life force was rapidly diminishing. I had such a strong sense that the work would be of help to him now, not to mention that I have a very strong bond with Monk - and I felt that sessions should be as often as every day at first, so Suzanne and I worked out an arrangement for that to happen without placing a financial burden on her, as she was out of work.
A few days later I came to see him. I sat with him outside on the terrace. I moved a couple of times to get a bit closer to him but really let him set the pace. I felt he wanted me to be at least 4-5 feet away, for the most part. But at times he would come closer to me. And I could feel him really settling into the energy again, as though he was becoming re-acquainted with the energy, and with me, gradually trusting more and more and letting me in. Throughout the appointment, I silently sent him the message to only take as much or as little energy as he wanted, and reassured him that I was there to help him. I kept picturing the energy as a soft white blanket that was moving over him and being absorbed into his body, and the white light moving through the inside of his body and healing his body.
Since I returned from town, his energy and appetite has improved even more, and I will tell you more about that in the next posting!!
