welcoming october

Today begins October and the slow march from the heat of summer to winter’s snow. This is a time for gathering resources, aligning the heart with the head, and giving thanks for all the lessons, both good and bad, that we learned over the past year.

There can be no change without growth and growth sometimes requires pain. Pain is that all encompassing elixir that burns away those things that are no longer working; making room instead for the “new” that will provide alternative ways of looking at life and reality.

Many years have found me hiding from the ceremony of pain because I was afraid of feeling it. I would pretend it wasn’t there- turning my head from it’s echoes in hopes that I could remain safe within the prison I built to protect myself. Only this year have I really been able to let go and release myself from the self-imposed blockages that kept me from truly seeing the truth of my life, who I am, and who I am meant to be.

Life’s journey is meant to contain all colors and shades… from light to dark, from up to down, from above to below. Today I give thanks for my bravery in facing the shadows that linger within me; and I give you strength to face yours in the same spirit.

love and light- October blessings to you all.

Reiki & animals

I find that animals benefit from energy healing as much as humans do. My oldest dog, Jack, is about 10 years old now. Being a larger breed dog, Great Pyrenees, he suffers more than smaller dogs with joint pain.

I use Reiki therapy on him as we lay down to watch tv at night, or even while I am relaxing on the sofa. Gentle touch can help alleviate pain, but can also help with stress and anxiety that lingers from being alone during the day or other stressors animals can undergo while their humans are away.

Removing energetic attachments from an animal can also help brighten their spirit and lift their mood. Sometimes animals will develop these attachments from other dogs or people who pet them. Energy leaves traces, so if a human is dealing with unpleasant thoughts/feelings they can transpose that energy onto their animal. Reiki can help “cut” those unintentional energetic ties that have developed and clear the aura of the animal.
