Reiki for Open Ocean Whales
Giving Reiki to the Whales in the open seas, among the freighters and other boats, can be beneficial for whales as well as for the relationship between sea life and humans.
Reiki for the Humpback Whale
He lifts his body straight up into the air and lands in a slam-splash before submerging, leaving a brief crater on the surface of the ocean. Then again, the humpback propels himself skyward, and down again. Over and over he breaches, as if he knows we want to see more. Then he rolls onto his back, exposing his underside, before rolling onto his stomach again.
Out here at sea, our boat rocks with the wind, the motor silenced so that we may watch the beauty and grace of the humpbacks, without disturbing them. We learn that this particular humpback often can be found here, and while it’s wonderful for us, it’s not without risk to the humpback, since this is a shipping channel.
When I hear this news, immediately, I begin beaming Reiki to the humpback, holding out my hands to him. He stays for a while and I try to savor every moment of his movements, treasuring the experience. Then, the humpback dives down a final time.
Silently, I thank the humpback for his visit. I continue to give Reiki as he swims away. Then I give Reiki to the whole shipping channel for the safety of all the whales, among the boats that need to pass through the channel. I give Reiki with my eyes and hands, emitting a soft mist of energy that comes from Source. I bathe the whole area in loving light for the well-being of the whales. And I ask for the Reiki to expand, for the well-being of the dolphins, stingrays, porpoises, and all other sea life.
Just as I set my intention to include all of sea life in the Reiki, a bright yellow crab appears on the surface of the water, then slips past our boat. The little crab is given some Reiki too.
After our afternoon of watching whales and giving Reiki to them and the other sea life, we turn back and head for shore. Then, as if to say “thank you”, two dolphins arc out of the water and into the air, right beside our boat. They stay with us for a while, then dive under one last time as I give them a “Reiki-wave goodbye”.
Reiki for a Greater Future
Since that memorable day, often, I spend time sending distance Reiki with the intention of developing a more conscious relationship between people and whales.
We can give distance Reiki to Whales by:
- Visualizing the whales in the sea as healthy and whole
- Imagining a beautiful white, healing light around oceans
- Allowing the healing light to include all sea creatures
- Giving Reiki, intending for all people and whales to respectfully co-exist
Reiki for Dolphins in Sanctuaries
Even in sanctuaries, where dolphins may be in a semi-captive environment, we can send Reiki. In certain semi-captive environments, the dolphins are free to swim into the open ocean, if they want, and stay there. They can always come back for some playful human interaction by making trips back and forth from the open ocean to the sanctuary. These dolphins often act as diplomats where people can see them up close.
We all can give Reiki toward a common understanding that the lives of whales and dolphins are important, and that perhaps we can find a life-affirming way to co-exist. Then, maybe one day, there won’t even be a need for animal diplomats. We all will already understand and respect animals.
Until then, we can give the whales, and all animals, the Reiki, which comes from a divine Source that is both patient and understanding.
Many Reiki blessings on your journey,
