Reiki For All Beings
I began my current spiritual journey with a tragic "bump in the road"
that served to wake me up. My
brother died under extremely trying circumstances which left the remainder of my
family in a state of shock, grief and horror. A friend of mine, Lynn Boggess - www.CompassionateReiki.com,
is a Reiki Master, and while I didn't really know what that meant, I had sent a
couple people to her for help in the past. I knew I needed help to deal
with all the emotions I was experiencing so I set up an appointment for a Reiki
That was the beginning of a series of life-changing events for me. As time passed and I learned more about Reiki, I truly felt I was waking up and even more, remembering things I've always known. I felt drawn to study Reiki. It helped me through the grief and anger of my brother's death. The more I studied and read and practiced, the more I wanted to learn.
About a year after I began with Reiki, Lynn asked me what my goal was regarding Reiki. At that time, I did not feel compelled to work with people as a Reiki practitioner. I had, however, been giving Reiki to one of my cats regularly since I learned how to do it. I was drawn to work with animals. Lynn was very encouraging and supportive. She also mentioned something I'd never heard of - animal communication! What a thought! Being able to converse with my animals!?! I began devouring books on animal communication, books written by animal communicators, and general animal behavior books.
I discovered Carol Gurney, the author of one of the communication books I really enjoyed, was going to teach a introductory class on animal communication in Charlottesville, VA, and signed up immediately. It was a great weekend, filled with wonderful experiences and validation for me that I really CAN communicate with animals! Since that time, I've taken classes from Patty Summers and Karen Wrigley. But even more importantly, I've practiced, practiced and practiced.
I find Reiki and Animal Communication work very well together. While communicating with an animal, I always offer her Reiki. The Reiki strengthens our connection and the animals always appreciate the Reiki energy. As I became more comfortable giving Reiki to animals, I realized that many times, the human companions would also benefit from receiving Reiki energy so I incorporated Reiki sessions for humans into the services I offer. From there, it was a very natural progression to offer it to any being - human, domesticated animal or wild animal - that desired a holistic approach to healing.
I cannot adequately express, in written word, the many blessings I have experienced since I started this journey with Reiki. If you have any questions regarding Reiki or Animal Communication or my gifts, please feel free to contact me.
