I am a lover of animals – all animals. It’s been a lifelong love affair. When I was a kid, there were always animals in my life, including two family dogs. I made friends with a spider in one of our bushes in front of the house. But like any kid – if I saw one in the house I would scream bloody murder!!! Things have definitely changed for me.

During my morning ritual, I have a personal Reiki session and meditate. I also send Reiki to the animals outside – all the birds, insects, animals and plant life. You might ask why I do this. It is because I love nature and because we are all connected. We should look at every living thing as our relation (even rocks – they have energy they just vibrate a little differently than we do). Once you open your heart to everything you view you will begin to walk in nature differently.

I love working with animals and most are naturals at receiving Reiki . It really helps them relax just like people. As they are accepting, they usually fall asleep. When they wake up and walk away, they’re done! Nothing is simpler. I also offer Animal Communication . This is one thing that brings owners and their pets closer together. They are wonderful teachers – what a different world it would be if we noticed what they are trying to teach us!

Human souls are spiritually linked to the souls of other animals.

I took a few online classes a few years ago – Bones, Stones, Feather and Fur and Listening to the Zoo Animal Ambassadors given by Rose DeDan ( she is awesome and if this is something you are interested in – check out her website). They are amazing classes. Taking these courses expanded my heart to what’s out there and I know this is the tip of the iceberg.

One of the things we learned Bones, Stones, Feather and Fur, was to offer a prayer stick to an animal to collect their prayers and burn it in a ceremonial fire to release the prayers. One day I went out on my balcony to work on the flowers and one of the pots had this rather large spider in it. He ran up a line of web and was basically face to face with me. I said, “Well, good morning! I’m just out here to clean up some of the flowers and I will leave you alone, but feel free to watch.” As I worked, he just moved back down closer to the flower pot and just sat.

While I was working on cleaning up the flowers, I thought I should get a prayer stick and see what he does’. I held the end of the stick to the spider and said, “I’m not going to hurt you, but wondered if you would like to put your prayers into this stick.” The spider touched the end of the stick with his two front feet (if you will …) and held the stick – I could feel his energy going through the stick – it was a beautiful moment. The spider let go of the stick when he was done … and yes, I did burn the stick to release his prayers.

What the classes allowed me to do is be more open to any possibility when I’m at the zoo or anywhere. On a recent trip to the zoo, I offered Reiki to several animals, offered a prayer stick (which I would later burn to release the prayers) and asked if they had any messages for me. I got several messages, but the most amazing encounter was with the buffalo.

Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.

I was sending Reiki to their enclosure and one of them left the rest of the herd and made his way over to my vicinity. I asked him if he had any prayers for me and held the prayer stick to him. He never took his eyes off of me. When he started eating some grass, I put the prayer stick away and I asked if he had a message for me. He looked at me again and sent me this message:

“Glad you came. Put out the word we are here for peace with you all and in this way we will learn to heal the earth, our Mother. We are all symbols of that and we are here for those who will hear us. Thank you, little mother – you and others like you speak for us and with us. You all have a gift – use it from your heart.”

Did that blow me away – you bet it did! So I pass this beautiful this message to anyone who will listen - to let them think about it and maybe expand their heart too. So, think twice when you go to the Zoo – these animals are there to work with us (that’s why they’re there). So, step out of yourself for a moment and ask if they have a message for you – you might be surprised at what you hear!

We are all connected. When you touch one thing, you are touching everything. Whatever we do has an effect on others. Therefore, we must learn to live mindfully to touch the peace that is within each of us - Thich Nhat Hanh
