Happy 2013

At the end of this year, use the energy of the waning moon to bid farewell to the energies that no longer contribute to your growth: this can be ideas, feelings of guilt, shame, or blame, perception about self and others, anger, excess......

Try these simple affirmations for release.  I will start with mine and then leave a few statements blank so you can fill in yours.    If you read them aloud, your voice will give power to your intention and the Universe will hear you and help you cleanse and heal.

I release my need for anger.  I release my anger.
I release my need to react.  I release my reactionism.
I release my need to feel hurt.  I release my hurt.
I release my need for excess weight.  I release my excess weight.
I release my need to worry.  I release my worry.


Now fill in your blanks:

I release my need for __________________.  I release my ________________.

I release my need to ___________________.  I release my ________________.

I release my need to feel ________________.  I release my _______________. 

Now light a candle for the new year and as you stand over it, say aloud those things you want to manifest for yourself and the world.  Again, voicing them will strengthen those intentions. 

In 2013,  let's try to be more like our dogs: unburdened, joyful, satisfied, loving, forgiving, playful, "in the moment." 

I wanted to leave 2012 by completing a project and sending it out into the Universe, so I have!  You can download my e-book on Amazon. It is divided into three sections: one collection of essays on lessons from our animals, another with sample readings and afterlife communication sessions, and a third section with exercises and meditations for you to increase your own intuition and do this very work.  It's $5, a bargain.  I ask for your support.  Here's the link:

Have a great New Year.  Ring in the joy.  Don't forget to join us on Facebook every Sunday in the a.m. and p.m. for our Distance Reiki Circle for Animals.  Search for us and request an invitation. Namaste!

Living with an Old Dog: Every Moment a Blessing

This morning I thought my old girl, Ingrid, had died, and I was stunned as I tried to lift her head and leg and they just fell, heavy, onto the bed. I didn't even see her breathing. It felt as if there was no life in her body at all. I surrounded her with my body, thinking she was gone, calling her name.....and then she moved. :-'(. I thought, "this is the way I want you to leave," peacefully, without drama. Maybe she was practicing. I cried much of the morning. But she's still here....a blessing.

She turned 14 last week and quietly enjoyed a small birthday party attended by her two housemate dogs and three other dog friends.  She was subdued but enjoyed enough birthday treats to the point of vomiting them up onto the couch at midnight.  
She can no longer climb into the bed and anxiously paced back and forth along the foot board until I lifted all 50 pounds of her and she curled up and slept till morning.  On occasion I would awaken in the middle of the night to f…

Ingrid the Ghost Comes Back to Visit

I would like to show you where I used to live. I don’t live anymore in the sense of physical life as you understand it but I live in another dimension that gives me some flexibility of movement. From here I can gently re-enter the earth plane, almost like a whisper, tugging at my mom until she is still enough to sense me. 
I share this not for her but for all of you who seemed to know so much about me from my mom’s words and pictures. I read the good words you wrote when I left and was touched because I was not a famous dog or a winner or a champion of any sort, just a deeply loved girl who had the luck to land in the right home. I want to show you the best parts of my life, which means where I lived because my home was my life. Take a look around the room - the living room, the kitchen, the family room –all those flaws you see in the walls and ceiling are really welcoming caves where my spirit has settled. I’m in every crack in the wall, every fold of fabric, every scratch on the fu…

God's Covenant with Animals in the Old Testament

What is our human responsibility to the earth and its non-human inhabitants? Traditional Biblical scholars would say one of master-servant and ecologists would say one of caretaker. However, using either frame, neither movement has responded in full view of the evidence presented throughout the Bible that God clearly included animals in covenantal relationships with Biblical scholars neglecting the sanctity of animals and secular environmentalists neglecting God. A closer look at the Old Testament reveals that God designed humankind’s role in relation to the animals as one of stewardship rather than domination. Traditionally religious people often cite Scripure justify a master/servant relationship between humans and animals rather than one of partnership, but deeper investigation invites us to see texts rich with references, both literal and figurative, to the partnership between humankind and the animal world. From Genesis through Prophets and Wisdom Literature, the writers of the O…
