Twice every Sunday I lead a Distance Reiki Circle for Animals. It's an spiritual meeting for like-minded animal lovers to gather for 20-30 minutes, wherever we may be, to tune in to higher energies for the welfare of our animals and our selves.  People don't need to be trainedinany way....Hi to our we quietly for about 20 minutes, listening to meditative music while I give prompts for relaxation and visualization, all the while sending Reiki energy to the animals and their people in the circle. All Reiki pracititioners are welcome to send as well...and if people aren't Reiki certified, then their presence and good intentions are enough to amplify the vibration. We always see power in group prayer and meditation.  I also recommend listening to healing music and provide links to the circle members.    Below are a few of my favorites:

1 Aeoliah's Music for reiki   This gentle angelc music is relaxing and conducive to meditation
2. The Eternal Om    Monks chanting a deep OM raises our vibration and brings us to higher places
3.    Gentle sounds of Tibetan singing bowls raise your vibration  ...sound healing is very profound. The clip I linked to is 11  . You can play itall day or overnight as background music to continue the healing.

Sit comfortably with your animal at your side, by your feet,or in your inner vision if you are physically distint.

Take a deep breath in through your nose and hold it as long as you can. Feel your lungs fill with air not UP).so that your belly expands OUTWARD , not UP.   Then release slowly through your mouth. When you exhale, feel all negativity and tension leave your body.

Inhale again and feel the breathe circulate throughout your entire body as you hold that breath.  See every muscle, bone, tendon, organ, cell illuminated by this breath. When you release, visualize all debris dissipating in that exhale. 

As you breathe deeply again, see all dark spots vacuumed into this breath....clear it out completely.  Take as many deep breaths as you need to see this. 

Notice how your animal companion also begins  to breathe deeply.  When you breathe in again,visualize your animal also clearing out any darks spots, any illness,and discomfort.  When you exhale, exhale for our animal as well.  Visualize your animal illuminated by this breath that comesfrom the Light.

Breathe with intention:

Breathe in Light
Exhale darkness

Breathe in Love
Exhale Anger

Breathe in peace
Breathe out discord

Breathe in healing
Breathe out discomfort

Breathe in vibrancy
Breathe out disease

Feel this energy like an internal  massage. Place your hand on your dog or cat or bird  as you breathe and affirm, and see how they respond to the shifting energy.


Sometimes when you release the negative that blocks you, you discover your gift. What's yours? Ask and let the answer arise.  Don't block it or force it.

Sometimes releasing means opening what's locked inside you. It doesn't have to be negative. Sometimes it is a gift that you have to share with others.  What is your gift?  How are you emerging?

Feel yourself bathed in light.  Visualize your animal bathed in light.  You are all encircled by this Light.  If you have a particular worry or healing request, make it now. Say it or think it and the Universe will hear.

Enjoy the peace and carry it with you always.

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…
