Your Path to Joy Begins Here
Welcome to Mind Over Matter!
I am Kim Harrington, pharmacist, reiki practitioner for people and animals and animal reiki teacher in the Let Animals Lead ® method created by Kathleen Prasad of Animal Reiki Source and with SARA, Shelter Animal Reiki Association, Animal to Human Energetic Bond Healing Practitioner, Mind/Body Practitioner, Animal Rights Activist, Sanctuary and Shelter Volunteer, Animal Hospice Reiki Practitioner, and collaborating author in best selling book on Amazon.
My clients are people who want to stay healthy, lessen anxiety, stress and depression, and feel balanced and rejuvenated using holistic modalities. I work with people using mind/body techniques, somatic felt sense awareness, breath work, sound therapy and mindfulness.
My clients are also animals who suffered emotional or physical traumas such as those adopted from shelters and rescues, sanctuary animals, pets recovering from physical healing as well as healthy and adjusted animals to keep them at their best.
My clients are people who love animals and find great benefit and comfort by wanting to help them. They soon realize the animals heal us in return. Together we share a greater compassion that ripples across communities-guiding us all to peace.
By practicing or receiving reiki, the path to joy is clear.
What exactly is Reiki?
Reiki is a form of alternative therapy with roots in Japan. Reiki is a non-invasive technique where the practitioner lightly places their hands on or just above areas of the body to direct energy.
Animal reiki with the Let Animals Lead® method is a mindfulness meditation practiced WITH the animals rather than an energy therapy done TO them.
Reiki has been known to heal physically, emotionally and spiritually. People have found great healing and a profound inner peace by practicing reiki with animals such as their pets or volunteering in shelters and sanctuaries.
With regard to reiki with humans or animals, reiki is compassion.
My Story to Find Joy
For years I didn't think the feeling of joy was really possible. I thought it was rare. I thought it only came when we were younger or the milestones in life like births or weddings. Depression, anxiety, and loneliness crept in at times but mostly, I was content. I thought content was a great goal, especially for women my age. I wasn't looking for a better job, a better place to live, nor was I envious of others who appear to have it all. So, content was a good place.
Several years ago, I became curious about reiki and energy work. I was hooked after taking one class where I learned to feel energy. I started seeing clients and loved helping people feel better about themselves.
I then wanted to know if reiki could help animals since they have always been so important to me. I researched a few teachers and methods and the one I practice made the most sense to me. I saw it as a beautiful practice that didn't force animals to participate. I saw animals gain trust, become calmer, and recover from surgery and illness faster than without reiki.
I also discovered that when I was working with them in shelters or sanctuaries, joy was in my heart! It didn't take long for me to realize that animal reiki isn't only to help animals but that people can find joy again. Animals are our greatest teachers and together, we heal.
I love working with both people and animals and have developed a practice that can guide others to joy.
The Shelter Animal Reiki Association (SARA) is a non-profit organization that teaches and promotes the Let Animals Lead® method created by Kathleen Prasad of Animal Reiki Source, which uses meditation practices to bring peace and wellness to shelter animals. Our goal is to create a calm, healing environment within shelters and other animal care settings. We work closely with staff and volunteers of shelter/rescues, veterinarians, and service organizations to help create a positive healing space for all.

Energy therapy is a natural method of energy balancing, but is not meant as a substitute for medical, or psychological, diagnosis and treatment.
Energy practitioners do not diagnose conditions, nor do they perform medical treatment, prescribe substances, or interfere with the treatment of a licensed medical professional.
Energy therapy or any other natural healing therapy should not compete with medical doctors, veterinarians, and their treatments.
All therapies are meant to complement medical treatments.

Distance Reiki Session for your pet
Animals respond extremely well to distance reiki. In the comfort of their own home where they feel safest, they can relax while you both receive a distance treatment together. When the energy in the home is off due to stressors, everyone can be affected. When we notice behavior of our pets changing, it can be in response to our energy. It becomes a cycle that can be helped with reiki to balance the animal, the human family, and the home in general.
Pricing $50 for approximately 45 minutes for up to 2 animals with contact made before and after the session if you wish.
Distance Reiki Healing for You

1 on 1 Consultation for your Pet
After your pet has been seen by a veterinarian, do you feel they still need extra loving care? Do they need help in speeding healing or recovery? Are they behaving differently or change in eating habits?
Any great pet parent would be concerned and you are doing the right thing by wanting to help them. Energy healing is often the answer.
I offer 1 on 1 consultation to discuss what you've been seeing with your pet and I will custom an energy healing treatment for them using distance healing with easy things that you can do at home. Often, your pet mirrors the disharmony in the home if there has been a big change or stresses with a family member. I can help both you and your pet find the balance which means mind, body, and spirit health.
30 minutes $50
Shamanic Reiki Session
Energy Practitioners believe that every physical ailment has a corresponding imbalance in the spiritual world and the ailments first appear in the energetic realm. Intrusions can enter due to past life traumas or disassociated emotions or thoughts. They can be entities when they have their own consciousness. I ask your guides to intercede on your behalf to heal problems in the energetic realm. Once healing occurs, issues in life may slip away.
During shamanic reiki, you will enjoy soft drum beats, help identify any blocked areas or attachments and then relax to a ceremony of sealing your healing. Cord cutting to remove 'personal baggage' can be requested and we energetically terminate the connection your soul has with unhealthy past relationships. I shear the luminous cord between you and them and reiki offers inherent protection from that energy going forward.
Sessions are approximately $80/60 minute sessions and include spirit animal card pull.
Classes and Workshops
You can become an animal reiki practitioner!
I teach Levels 1 and 2 Animal Reiki as created by Kathleen Prasad of Animal Reiki Source. The Let Animals Lead ® method is highly successful as it respects the animals by not forcing them to do anything and lets them decide if they want to share the reiki space. Once you are certified Level 2, you may see clients when you feel ready. Having me as your teacher gives you my guidance and support as you begin your reiki career.
I am available for both private one on one and group animal reiki workshops and classes using the Let Animals Lead® method created by Kathleen Prasad, founder of Animal Reiki Source.
I am available for travel within a few hours of the Scranton/Wilkes Barre Pennsylvania area.
Also offering group classes throughout the year so contact me to be added to my newsletter.
It's not just medical care or food that saves us, it's when we find something to live for that does.
