Reiki Helps Shelter Animals

Image
Cathy with a shelter kitten This month, the Connecticut Humane Society (CHS) chose to spotlight my volunteer work as an animal Reiki practitioner at their Westport shelter.  I'm grateful to this progressive animal welfare organization for recognizing how sharing animal Reiki and animal communication helps ease shelter animals' stress, fear, and anxiety. It also helps animals to feel safe and develop trust which can make them more adoptable.  This is what CHS shared about my role as an Animal Reiki practitioner: Volunteer role: Animal Reiki practitioner Length of service: 3 months I started volunteering because…I love animals and want to help shelter animals with animal Reiki and animal communication. My favorite part of volunteering is…seeing the animals relax when I offer them Reiki, which is meditating with them for healing. Machin the Ferret My most memorable volunteer experience is…helping Machin the ferret with Reiki because he had dental issues and then seeing him find hi

Conversations with a Parrot

As an animal communicator, my job is to translate pets' thoughts, feelings, and viewpoints so their people can better understand them. I communicate with animals using the silent language of telepathy, which means feeling another soul or spirit over a distance. I use verbal language with humans. Ziggy I recently spoke with a longtime client, Julie* and her 3-year-old jenday conure parrot, Ziggy*, about several behavioral issues that stemmed from misunderstanding each other. I first met Ziggy at the bird rescue the day Julie adopted him a couple of years ago. He is a sweet guy, full of sunshine and joy. Julie wants nothing more than Ziggy's happiness. His wings are intact so he can fly around the house, and she gives him the freedom to walk on the floor and play with toys. Julie felt that giving him access outside his birdhouse was an act of love. Previous animal communication sessions with Ziggy focused on healing two potentially dangerous and life-threatening behaviors. The fi

Meditating with Your Pets Promotes Health and Well-being

Did you know meditating with your pets can have a profound influence on their health and overall well-being? Cultivating a daily meditation practice with your animal family is a precious and potent gift that allows them to flourish in all aspects of their lives---physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually- which ultimately keeps them healthier and happier. When you spend time meditating with your pets, you create a compassionate space with many positive healing benefits like stress reduction, relaxation, a sense of safety, mutual understanding, and joy. It also strengthens your heart connection and bond. The ancient art of meditation can be layered with different expectations and be practiced in various ways. However, animals perceive mediation in straightforward terms. Animals live in the moment and are drawn to peaceful, calm, balanced, and open-hearted energy. Pet-led meditation teaches us how to live in the moment with a strong heart connection. Here are 7 ways a daily medi

Learn how to tune into the powerful wisdom and magic of animals and Nature

Summer is a potent time to strengthen your heart connection with animals and Nature. A fantastic way to do this is by using meditation.  When we experience meditation with the help and guidance of animals and Nature, it creates an open-hearted, peaceful, balanced state of being.  Animals are grateful when we are peaceful, balanced, and peacefully present. A fun and easy way to access this special healing space is by meditating with animals. Animals are masterful meditation teachers who show us the way to deeper listening and awareness of our spiritual essence and oneness with all life.  Why? Because it's how the animals live.  Animals teach us to recognize the importance of always living in our heart centers and being present in the moment. When we are in this space, we become grounded, calmly present, and heart magnates to the animals. Animals also reap the benefits meditation brings, like deep relaxation, stress reduction, and overall wellness. Plus, meditation with animals bring

Harnessing the Heart Power of Intuition to Find My New Keeshond Puppy

Image
Yogi Bear and me One thing I learned in 2020 is to be patient, flexible, and above all, trust my intuition. Of the many challenges I faced last year, the worst one was suddenly losing my dog, Bodhi Bear, to stomach cancer in early December 2020. Saying goodbye to my best friend and constant companion's physical presence shattered my heart into a million pieces.  Being a great friend and dog, Bodhi Bear made sure I got through my move from California to Connecticut before showing signs of his grave illness. For so many reasons, I'll forever be grateful to Bodhi for all that he gave me in his short seven and a half years with me.  Bodhi Bear and me I decided years ago that I never wanted to walk alone and needed a Keeshond by my side to feel whole. So when I let Bodhi go because he was too ill to eat, I knew in my heart that I would have to find another dog.  Right after Bodhi transitioned, I immediately began searching for my Keeshond puppy and quickly located one. However, in h

Support Horses and Farm Animals with Meditation Fundraisers

A hundred years from now, it will not matter the sort of house I lived in, what my bank account was or the car I drove...but the world may be different because I was important in the lives of the animals & the creatures on this earth.  --- Unknown One of my life's purposes is to help animals in whatever way I can, whether it's empowering them using animal communication, sharing Reiki, or meditating with them. I also gain tremendous joy raising money for different animal rescue and welfare organizations since they usually run entirely on donations. These life-saving organizations need ongoing financial support to feed, house, rehabilitate, give medical care and re-home animals in need. Service work is an integral part of who I am, and that's why I'm offering a couple of different fundraisers this month to help animals that I hope you will support.  On April 19th, I'm offering  Meditating with Horses Fundraiser . This webinar will benefit Rising Starr Horse Rescue

How to Nourish Your Animal's Spirit

Meditation with Animals, Animal Communication, and Animal Reiki Feed Animals' Souls Animals are multi-dimensional spiritual beings. When we consciously nourish their souls with meditation, animals benefit in all aspects of their lives.  Meditation is a simple yet potent way to feed your animal's spirit. W hen we meditate with them, it brings peace, balance, and healing. It also deepens our awareness of their spiritual wisdom as our teachers, healers, and guides. This awareness builds a spiritual bridge of connection, compassion, healing, mutual understanding, and love.  Animal Communication and Animal Reiki also nurture animals' souls.  When we learn to quiet our minds and open our hearts with meditation, it develops our intuitive and telepathic communication with animals and strengthens our heart-connection.  In fact, meditating with animals is the foundation to growing your telepathic Animal Communication skills and sharing Reiki using the Let Animals Lead® method.  Both
