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!

God’s Covenant With Animals: Stewardship, Not Rule

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

Why I Chose Animals

I suppose my mother had something to do with me loving animals. From the time I was five, she was bringing home creatures small enough to go undetected in our Brooklyn apartment: turtles, tortoises, and a half-moon parrot with whom I bonded so deeply that the memories of having to give him up (I had severe allergies) still fly at me like unwelcome shards of glass. I remember crying in the back seat of the car, my father double-parked with the engine running while my mother returned the bird to the pet shop. When she came back outside, she was holding a large tortoise, waving it at us, a permission seeking gesture for my father, who banged his hand on the steering wheel and yelled, "Goddamn it, Rhoda!" But we won. The tortoise came home with us. The parrot story goes deeper than simple loss of an amusing companion (which is never simple, anyway). At the time, I was five and silently enduring molestation at the hands of my paternal grandfather. I won't delve into the psych
