Reiki is a gift that last a lifetime (and more).  It is actually Universal Life Energy that is transferred from the spirit through the Reiki practitioner to the client, who can be any species  or any vegetation, or I'll say, any object.  Yes, I've used Reiki on inanimate objects quite a few times.  You can Reiki your food to eliminate impurities.  You can Reiki your aura to cleanse it of unwanted energies.  You can Reiki newly acquired quartz crystals and other stones to cleanse and ready them for  use.  Most importantly, for me is its use on animals and hopsice patients. 

If I say the word Reiki, my macaw assumes his relaxed, fluffy neck position with his head cocked and his claws in his mouth and he fits his head perfectly into the palm of my hand to receive his energy boost.  My female Irish Water Spaniel responds to the word "aura."  When I say "aura!" she lies on her back, legs open, ready to receive a Reiki bath.

I took my first Reiki class at the insistance of a nurse friend.  She had seen a demonstration and wanted it as an adjunct to her work in a substance abuse rehab facility.  I had no intention to be a healer as the psychic modality spoke louder to me, but I went and invested in the class, knowing all methods of vibration raising would add more Light to my life.  At the time I had a very sick standard poodle who struggled with auto-immune disease and bloody colitis.  Nothing worked to reverse his condition but when I returned hom after the Reiki I initiation and placed my hands on his belly in response to the almost unearthly noises emanating from him, he went right to sleep and the violin like screeching of his colon stopped.  Did Reiki cure him?  No.  He eventually died of bloat....but in the year that he did suffer with the disease I was able to provide relief and a whole lotta love.  That's the gift of Reiki: a whole lotta love, and we know love to be the greatest healing tool of all.  My message from Spriit was to focus on healing before all else, and only when I did that earnestly did my clairvoyance and intuition sharpen.

Healing is not curing.  Reiki is an Eastern concept, not a Western band-aid.  It works on the phsyical, emotional, and spiritual levels. sometimes subtly, sometimes profoundly, but it always works to brings us to our hightest selves.  In fact, some people profess that their intuition magnifies after Reiki inititation.  It is taught in three levels, with at least 21 days between levels I and II and at least a year between levels II and III.  Level one is basic attunement and hand positions; level II is distance and emotional plane healing; level 3 in the traditional Usui system (which I practice) is Master level that brings with it teacher status.  The most delicious benefit of being a Reiki practioner is that you serve as a channel;  every time you administer Reiki to someone else and it moves through you, you are receving a Reiki healing yourself.

I AM OFFERING A REIKI I CERTIFICATION CLASS ON MAY 25 FROM 11-4 IN FORT LAUDERDALE.   Cost is $100 in advance.  You will receive three attunements, the history of REIKI,  learn the handpositions, and engage in hands-on practice.  E-mail me with quesitons:  or call me at 954-254-8405.

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…
