Join Us for the Upcoming Animal Communication Webinar!




It Is Time to Let Him Go… Or Is It?

A dear friend of mine was fired by, not one, but two veterinarians. 

She wasn’t fired from a job, but fired as a client.  Why?  Because, against the recommendation of these vets, she choose to not euthanize her dogs.

In both cases, the vets were sure these animals had only weeks, maybe even days left to live, and it wouldn’t be fare to the animal to force him to keep living with the pain and suffering he would have to endure.   So, as is often the case, the vets advised my friend to put the dogs down.  When my friend said that wasn’t going to happen, the both vets, in good conscious, could no longer work with them.  It was either euthanasia or find another vet.

So why didn’t my friend take the learned diagnosis of the vet?  It was because, in both cases, during an animal communication session, her animal companions told her that they weren’t ready to go yet, and they were willing to deal with the physical pain and limitations (which weren’t anywhere near where the vet thought they were) to enjoy more time with her and on the Earth.

In both cases, these companions lived for years longer, and enjoyed a quality of life that the vets couldn’t have imagined.  These animals were able to experience life way beyond what the vets thought they would, but I wasn’t surprised.  The animals told me.

To be clear, this isn’t about bashing these vets or in any way criticizing anyone in the veterinarian community.  I absolutely understand why those vets did what they did.  All vets are forced to walk a very difficult path.  Every day, lives are literally in their hands, and they must do what they feel is right, and in the best interest of the animals they serve.

I also hold no judgement on the people who choose euthanasia for their animals.  Anyone who is forced to make that heartbreaking choice only wants what is best for their beloved family member, and they are forced to make the hard choice for the ultimate benefit of their companion.

But my friend’s experience is certainly not unique.  I have answered the urgent call hundreds of times for an emergency session because an animal was going to be put downin the morning, or even in a couple of hours.  During these consultation, the animals share their needs, desires, bucket lists, and love.

Sometimes the animals do indeed wish to transition, say their goodbyes, and are ready to go.  Other times, given just a little more time, the animals are willing to endure their discomfort for one last holiday, one more trip, or even one more final evening with their human companions before they go.  Still other times, the animals are flat out not ready to go and, if given the chance, live years, happy to manage with pain or limitations because, just like humans, they aren’t ready to leave and feel they still have many years left!

So how do you make that decision?  How do you give your animal companion that voice? How can animal communication help you?  This and many other topics as important as this one will be discussed in this year’s Animal Communication Webinar Series.

It is called Animal Communication: A Limitless Language.  It is the final series I will be doing on Animal Communication and, because of that, I am covering some of the toughest and most important subjects I know of to help you take animal communication to a master level.

As I said, there are habits, skills, and practices outside of the telepathy itself that, if used properly, separate a good communicator from a master communicator.  This is what we will be discussing over 6 sessions in December.

Plus, as always, we have some amazing guests, including the Founder of Elephant Aid International and co-founder of The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee, Carol Buckley andRenowned Holistic Physician, Lecturer, and Author of The Emotion Code, Dr. Bradley Nelson.

I am very excited to share this vital information with you and I hope you will join me.

Along with a special Early Bird price, I also have a free bonus for you if you sign up before December 1st.

The doors are now open to register and we start on December 1st.  So don’t wait.  Click on the link below and reserve your spot.

The Reiki Weekend is Almost Here!


Learn the Most Popular
Healing Art in the World!

Reiki I & II Certification Weekend,
December 4 & 5, 2015, Elizabeth, CO

Reiki, translated from Japanese as “Universal Life Force”, is quickly becoming one of the most popular alternative healing modalities in the world. Already used in clinics, private practices and hospitals around the globe, people are waking up to the amazing benefits that Reiki can provide. 

Developed as a healing art in early 20th century Japan, Reiki is a holistic, non-invasive technique that heals on all levels of body, mind and spirit. In addition it can enhance other modalities of healing, both traditional and alternative, alleviate pain and has been proven to reduce stress in both humans and animals. 

With this unique style of energy healing you can:

  • Alleviate stress, fears, worry and frustrations
  • Assist the body in cleansing different types of toxins
  • Help people break unwanted habits or conditions like smoking, overeating and alcoholism
  • Work on anything from your pets, house plants and even your computer!
  • and more…

During the two-day certification course Anna will conduct a comprehensive exploration into this Universal healing art. You will discover exactly what Reiki is and how to use it to heal yourself and others. 

Topics that will be covered over the 2-day workshop include:

  • The History of Reiki
  • Level I & II Reiki Attunement Symbols
  • The Proper Use of Reiki
  • Starting a Reiki Practice
  • Body and Energy Scanning
  • Chakras:  What they are and how to use them
  • Distant Healing
  • And More!

And everyone who attends the workshop gets a full Reiki healing session so you can experience the amazing power of Reiki for yourself.

Energy Healing
for Horses 
December 6, 2015
10am – 5pm
Happy Dog Ranch Littleton, CO


One of Energy healing’s most effective uses is in the healing of horses.  Horses, and animals in general, are great clients for energy work because they don’t have any preconceived notions or skepticism that often get in the way of human receptivity.  An animal is simply present to the experience.  If it likes it, it likes it and if it doesn’t it leaves:  Simple as that.  

We have found that most horses love Reiki and other forms of energy work.  They will quite often relax into the healing session, lower their heads, keeping a leg cocked in a relaxed position and even close their eyes as they enjoy the sensation.  Many times you can even hear their stomachs gurgle as the healing energy flows through them, clearing energy blocks as it goes.  And when they have had enough, they will often let you know by “waking up” and sometimes even walking away.

During the workshop you will learn how to:

  • Ask for “permission” from your animal companions
  • Set up a safe energy healing session
  • Scan your horse’s body
  • Locate chakras
  • Listen to your horse and read his body gestures
  • Recognize the duration of sessions
  • Liaise with friends & clients
  • Share experiences and stories to further enhance your practice

Remember that Reiki and other forms of energy and alternative healing is not intended to be a substitute for Western medicine and a vet should always be notified in cases of illness and concern.  But it is a powerful tool and can assist on many levels of healing. 

Join Anna for this very special day as she shows you the most effective way to apply your practice and your skills to the horse.  This is also a great opportunity to review your skills if you are a little rusty or maybe feel like you need a little more instruction.  Improve your skill set, increase your confidence, and heal some horses!

No Prerequisite!  This class is open to everyone who wishes to bring an energy healing practice to the horses and other animals to benefit our fellow planetary companions.

For further information contact Vin at info@reachouttohorses.com.

For more information about Happy Dog Ranch visit happydogranch.org.

Cost: $125 for the entire day of training if you register by November 18th / $150 after

Investigation Confirms BLM Sale of 1,794 Wild Horses to Slaughter

The Cloud Foundation presses BLM to focus on keeping horses on the range

Washington, DC – October 25, 2015 – After 3 years of waiting for the Office of the Inspector General to complete an investigation of Colorado rancher and livestock hauler, Tom Davis, their report has finally been completed and confirms what The Cloud Foundation (TCF) has been saying publicly since October of 2012. The report states, “During our investigation, Davis admitted that most of the horses he purchased from BLM went to slaughter.” The report also states that between 2008 and 2012 BLM spent more than $140,000 in taxpayer dollars transporting wild horses to Davis who admits to paying only $10.00 for each horse.

BLM’s performance in this deadly incident is completely unacceptable. Who is being held accountable here?” asks Paula Todd King, TCF Director of Communications. “It appears everyone gets off—BLM, Davis, the Vet, the Brand Inspector and everyone involved.”

The Report states: “We referred this investigation to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Colorado, who declined both civil and criminal prosecution. The State of Colorado Conejos County District Attorney’s Office also declined to file charges against Davis. We referred the public health issue concerning a USDA-certified veterinarian signing IHCs without inspecting the horses (false statements) to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of New Mexico. The District of New Mexico formally declined prosecution.”


The OIG report also indicates that BLM law enforcement officers who looked into the background of Tom Davis “found no evidence of Davis selling the horses to slaughter.”


“This is surprising as Davis is well known in Southern Colorado and it is common knowledge that he buys horses for the purpose of selling them for slaughter,” states Ginger Kathrens, TCF Executive Director and producer of the Cloud films for PBS.  “The law enforcement folks dropped the ball leaving wild horses and the American public to pay the ultimate price.” 


“What is also shocking is Colorado’s failure to follow through with the prosecution of Tom Davis,” addedAnn Evans, a founding Board Member of TCF, “and that New Mexico too has turned a blind eye to the wrong-doing of the veterinarian who falsified documents, an action clearly out of compliance with his New Mexico State Veterinary License.”


BLM believes they have eliminated the possibility of this crime being repeated by limiting the number of wild horses that can be purchased at any one time. But what does it say about how we go forward if no one is held responsible for the suffering that occurred to animals that only wanted to live their lives in freedom with their families?” continues Kathrens.  “The best way to avoid a repeat of this tragedy is to keep wild horses on the range where they want to be, and where they are clearly the safest.”


The Colorado non-profit believes that field darting with the safe, reversible fertility control drug PZP will keep mustang populations at zero population growth and eliminate the need for removals.TCF has offered to work with the BLM to implement those fertility control plans to preserve genetically viable herds in the wild and reduce the cost of managing wild horses in less than humane holding facilities.

“Misstatements and untruths must stop,” adds King, “including covering up the inhumane treatment of wild horses by helicopter contractors during roundups, failure to provide adequate shelter to thousands of wild horses already in captivity, sterilizing vibrant, healthy herds of wild horses on the range, and skewing environmental analyses that blame wild horses for range damage caused by livestock grazing and energy development.

It is past time for BLM to turn the ship around and fulfill their responsibility to the American public to manage healthy herds of wild horses on public lands in an environmentally responsible and sustainable way,” Kathrens concludes.
