I asked if I could sit for a while and send loving energy and was given permission. The next 45 minutes every inquisitive guest found a reason to step below deck to check out what was going on, this lady, sitting by a sleeping dog. They had no idea what I was doing and were most curious, but they took care to not disturb either of us! Sometimes I touched, other times just sent love and healing, as Reiki energy surged from my hands.
At the end of the session the dog opened his eyes, wagged his tail, walked to his water bowl and drank, ate a couple of bites of food and went back to bed. Several weeks later I spied the old dog safely ensconced below deck, tail wagging; another nine months of boating to enjoy before a natural death prevailed.
