The Original Reiki Healing for Horses

There is no place I would rather be than in the corral among the horses and healing energy. It is a place surrounded by mountains, nestled in the heart of the wild west, where horses receive healing and, in turn, heal human hearts. It is an energy so subtle it ignites the flame within, with an art that has worldwide recognition and acceptance. If you have felt the pull of destiny, now is the time to embrace your calling as the lightworker you were born be.

Love Lessons to Heal the Heart and Soul

One of ROTH’s most popular retreats, Healing Horses at the Historic Bitterroot Ranch in Dubois, WY, came and went in early June.  Dubois is located in the niche below the intersection of two great mountain ranges: the volcanic Absarokas, spilling eastward from Yellowstone, and the southeastward-ranging Wind River Mountains, the tallest mountain range in Wyoming.  Students from across the US gathered amidst the peaks and the Wind River as they mingled with the horses, spending time within the herd, reading the horses’ energies, answering their requests for healing, and helping to interpret their registers.

One of the biggest hits of Anna’s Healing Horses classes is the Love Lessons. When we connect with the horse’s heart chakra, they can express emotion through us that they otherwise would not be able to.  Consequently, we can experience our own healing by being the channel for their emotional release.  Love begets love, and love lessons beget love lessons!

Here are some images from this year’s Healing Horses at the Bitterroot Ranch Retreat along with what our students had to share about their experience:

Everyone told me this week would change my life…. They were right!  Everyday was life lessons learned, but the most amazing day was the day I gave Reiki to a young Arabian Stallion.  Life-changing!  He taught me so much about being present in the moment and listening!   I know when I get home my horses will thank him.  Blessings to Anna, all the members of my group, and the Bitterroot Ranch!

 

Elena D. of CO

The beauty of the retreat location was matched by the grace and intensity of the teachings.  I am confident I will be bringing back to my ranch a very useful and unique practice for my animals.

Sally W. of MA

What I loved best were the reiki Attunements, which, for me, were the most spiritual aspect of the retreat.  I also loved the opportunity to give Reiki love to the horses while they were in a corral.  (There were many more horses there than I could connect with!)  At one point I was surrounded by 5 horses all wanting Reiki love.

Marilyn S. of MN

To walk into a herd of 80-100 horses and have them choose you…what an exhilarating experience and I will not top that for awhile!  Giving to the horses is amazing!

From staff to clinician, everyone was extremely helpful and informative.  I will be able to use most of all the information in my present employment.  Thank you.

Sydney B. VA

If you ware feeling closed down in our modern world, in this clinic you will feel your heart grow at least 10 sizes BIGGER!  NO MORE GRINCH!  Great for all levels of experience.

I came to Bitterroot Ranch with Anna here because I truly needed emotional, spiritual and physical healing.  I am so blessed that I got even more than I could have ever expected.  My advice to you would be to trust the flow of how Anna works – that’s what made my life lesson shine through.  The bond and friendship with all the others n the class is priceless.  I am truly healed and this experience has and will change my life forever.  Much love to all here: horses, dogs, staff, friends, others and Anna!

The week began early for our Reiki Master students who arrived in advance for their Master Attunements and to access the new information they would be using out in the world as they begin their journeys as Master Healers.  From selecting oils for attunements to master healing sessions, truly a transformational experience was had by all…even by the curious onlookers.

From our Reiki Master, Christine M. of wherever the wind takes her…

The idyllic setting of the Bitterroot Ranch added to the magic of this wonderful, week-long, experiential retreat.  Being immersed in nature and surrounded by beauty from the moment we stepped out of our gorgeous log cabins was an absolute joy.  Totally loved sharing Reiki with the lovely group of people on the retreat, energy healing with the horses and the spectacle of a 200 odd herd making their way up to higher pastures every evening.  The absolute highlight for me though was receiving the Reiki Master attunement with the energy of the elements all around us and the horses coming in to share their energy and healing as well.  It truly was a remarkable and magical experience.   Heartfelt thanks to Anna for creating this fabulous event.  Would do it again tomorrow!      

Not the Homecoming For Which I Had Hoped…You Just Might Save Your Horse’s Life with Some of These Helpful Tips:

You Just Might Save Your Horses Life with Some of These Helpful Tips:

Nearly a year ago I arrived home after an amazing Healing Horses experience at Bitterroot Ranch in WY.  Happy to be home and spend time with my herd, I ventured out on the ranch Monday morning and my equine soul mate, Excalibur, was already calling me.  He immediately caught my attention with his rolling nicker and stance.

A bout of springtime Laminitis had come calling, and I sprung into action.

We thought that springtime would be a good time to share some of the things you can do during a Laminitis emergency while waiting for your vet to arrive.

Using some of these suggestions, you might just save your horse’s life.

A FULL RECOVERY

We treated Excalibur Holistically, and nearly entirely naturally, only giving him Bute when it was absolutely necessary to control his pain.   Now, almost a year later, Excalibur is out with his herd, grazing the pastures that are suitable for his dietary needs, with not too many sugary grasses to which he can have access. He regularly gallops with his girls and lives the life of a free horse once more!

Healing Even Those Out of Sight

A magic story about a friendship and the love for all living creatures –
Via the combination of Animal Communication, Reiki, and the Bowen technique – thanks to Anna

In gratitude, I wish to share these magic moments of connection and healing with you.
Sending so many thoughts and thanks to Anna, my loving and patient mentor through years and still in these moments sharing her immense experience so generously!

I have had the pleasure of attending several of Anna’s AC workshops, as well as Reiki here in Denmark together with my close friend, Trillee.

I am now attending the AC Mentorship programme for the 2nd year and loving it more every day!  All of the knowledge and skills that Anna shares, as well as the connectedness with fellow participants and their four-legged friends is wonderful.

A while ago, my friend, Trillee, called me when I was in town. (We often work together long distance). There was an emergency: a horse was lying down, not wanting or being able to get up. The horse was owned by a person very special to her, so she was quite upset and touched.  The horse was somewhere here on my island, Funen. With Trillee, being over on the west coast, and me in the middle of the island, neither of us were near them.

I wondered, could I help by sending healing/distance Bowen? She would send Reiki and Munay-Ki as well.  I was told, that the vet was on his way, too.  So, I tuned in, just sat down in the middle of a busy, noisy, shopping center – and there he was – the horse.  I did some testing distance, felt a stomach ache, like colic, but not really colic, more like some muscles being tight around his belly, causing the pain.  I felt his front line being tight, and his legs not able to carry him, not being able to get up. I did some emergency Bowen, then sensed I had to do something to help him breathe better, so I did some more moves for respiratory. Then I sensed, his sacrum was somewhat unaligned, so I did some moves to help it get back into place.

There was a big change – it felt as if it was all ok now.  I then told him that now he should be able to get up.  “Come on – you can do it!”, I said to him to encourage him, and that he would be ok.  I felt him get up and shake himself, as if to shake it all off, then there was easier breathing.  And then there was quiet.

I had seen him as not small, but not that big either. Not just normally brown with black mane and tail, but not black either.  Seeing brown, but with a darker touch – a deep, dark brown, like chestnut.

I sent text messages to Trillee to tell her, that I had finished. Then to share what I had done. Trillee had then sent it to the owner. She also shared what she herself had done and felt.

This was such a moving experience for me to get validation. It turned out that he had just that deep, dark, brown color. That when we had worked on him, he had suddenly just stood up and shaken, as if to shake everything off. Then everything was fine, and he got his appetite back.  They told me about the sacrum; they shared that he had gotten stuck underneath the hay “basket” and had twisted his leg/hind end.

The daughter, who’s horse it was, had lost another horse last summer, and they shared that seeing the horse on the ground, only briefly lifting his head when she called out and then lying down again, had scared everyone. They worried that the vet might have to put him to sleep, as he was totally weak.

When I spoke to Trillee afterward, it turned out that she had been guided to work on the chest area as well.  Getting an update in the evening, he was just fine. He had also been checked by the vet when he arrived in the afternoon.

Now, almost two weeks later, he is still doing fine and enjoying life.

We have planned for me to go visit them “live” to say hello and give him some wellness.
I am looking forward to meeting this very special soul. He was just so very present, being very brave.

I feel so humble to have experienced this miracle – so thank you, Anna, again – for making it possible!

I am feeling grateful for all this to “travel” across species and distances.

Reiki Healing Energy Needed to Support Tender Souls in California

Every so often we get requests for Reiki Practitioners who are skilled at sending distance Reiki to help with healing animals whose stories touch our lives and hearts in some way.

These are three such souls.  If you practice Reiki and have time to send healing support, we would be mighty grateful to you!

Dearest Reiki Angels,
Please send Healing Reiki Energy to these three souls for our friend, Virginia Jablonski (Ginny), of Chino Valley, AZ.  Ginny traveled to California in response to the fires to help support the energetic needs of the animals there.  She provides us with three sweet souls who could use our support:
This is Barry Boy. He has a fractured Patella. He has suffered depression and has tension in his neck due to compensation. He needs to know he is loved.
Barry Boy is located in Valley Center, CA at a rescue.
Barry
This is Lucy.  She is 18.5 hand Shire Draft sent to a rescue in Ramona. She gave birth 3 years ago and has not been able to walk properly since. I have done healing, had a massage therapist do free work, and had a DC do a free adjustment for her in the past week. She is lifting her legs better, not dragging her feet and entire pasterns, but needs ongoing support to retrain her pelvis, hips and SI to stay in place.
Lucy is located in Ramona, CA at a sanctuary.

 

This is Shelby.  She is a rescue dog who has had several traumatic incidents in her life, has low self esteem, and is truly an emotional train wreck. She just wanted me to lie down with her on the floor. There are layers of abuse, memories and emotions that she is carrying.
Shelby is located in Valley Center, CA at a private home. She lives with 6 other rescue dogs.

Thank you to everyone who supports ROTH’s healing circle as a Reiki Angel!  We honor your commitment to bettering the world with your healing love!

Reiki Energy Healing for Horses was a HIT!

Once a year in Colorado Anna selects a rescue or therapy barn where she chooses to give back to the horses with her Reiki for Horses class.  This year ROTH landed at Drifter’s Heart of Hope in Franktown, CO, and luckily so.  Thanks go, in particular, to Jacqui Avis, who manages the facility, because she was an integral piece in our success as she pointed us to the horses who had the needs and the capability to be a part of the class.  To Jacqui and her lovely staff of volunteers, thank you for making this class go off without a hitch!

Reiki Healing is about reciprocity, compassion, love and light. Literally it is the subject matter at hand, and the students practice their craft as they develop the skills necessary to evaluate, interact, and support horses energetically.  We ask so much of our horses from day to day, and supporting them with Reiki is an imperative part of maintaining their physical and emotional well being.

As I walked the aisles and rows of horses and got details on their histories, it became immediately apparent that the ONLY other destination for most of these horses would have been the kill pen.  Some may have better chances than others because their rehabilitation is more mental and emotional than physical, or vice versa, but it was obvious that the hearts of the people behind Drifter’s are indeed Hearts of Hope.

We wanted to share some of our images with you all so you can see what a great day we had and to promote the idea of giving back to those horses who support us without question, and sometimes without option.

The morning began in the indoor, after the lecture of course, and students were assigned horses on whom they needed to determine the state of each Chakra and then go to work to balance them.

Some horses are much more receptive to hands-on Reiki while others received “beamed” Reiki healing for their comfort.  A lucky pair of students were even joined by a friend of the Feline family to soak up the “borrowed benefit” of a healing energetic environment.

Students worked on learning how to determine when a horse wants them to move from one Chakra to the next, what is a yes and what is a no, asking permission, watching for the registers of successful energy healing, and how to determine when the horse shares that they have received all the Reiki they need and the healing session is over.

IMG_6881

No pony is too small to receive healing energy!  Glitter certainly enjoyed her time to shine and took a solid nap during her healing session.

Christine worked on Horris the mule, who joined us after many years of belonging to a driving team in the mountains.  When we approached Horris’ stall to bring him in he was apprehensive, to put it mildly; however, once Horris experienced our intention and the power behind the Reiki Healing Energy, he became our resident “Reiki Junkie” and even appeared later in the afternoon for a second session, this time entirely willingly!  The grey gelding, Sarge, was another who was concerned about our intentions for his otherwise sleepy Sunday.  But after about 10 minutes he could feel the difference in what we were doing and happily obliged by relaxing for over two hours.

After lunch there was more instruction in the classroom and then we headed to the pastures, paddocks, and stalls to work on horses in a more natural environment.  Anna calls these “Love Lessons,” where we connect directly with the horse’s heart Chakra and allow them to use us as a vehicle to express their emotions that otherwise might not have an outlet.  Horses cry tears through our students, and it’s not entirely about us healing them, because plenty of students walk away from the Love Lessons feeling entirely transformed and healed themselves.

Anna began with a brief demonstration on a black gelding and then students moved into the paddocks and pastures and allowed the horses to choose with whom they wanted to engage in healing.  Some took wild advantage of student after student, and others focused on one person in particular who they preferred.  Some horses even chose to refrain altogether, and remained at their feeder while allowing others to receive the healing they needed.  That is always ok, because each horse has a say in their own healing.

As horses can feel the difference in a true Holy Fire and Karuna Reiki Master, some of the horses chose to try to monopolize Anna’s attention for their own benefit.  Anna is always happily amused to receive their affection!

Toward the end of the Love Lessons we headed to one last set of pastures where some of the horses from our morning sessions go to afternoon turn out.  One in particular who was reluctant to be brought in for the morning sessions (until he realized how exactly his day was shaping up) figured out that he had yet another opportunity to soak in the healing love.  ROTH student, Sharon Tiraschi, then called Sarge and Mariah in from turnout with only her heart.  Both horses queued up for their opportunity to experience the Love Lessons from Sharon.  It was a beautiful transformation for Sarge from the morning to the afternoon.

IMG_7030

And many others were sought out for their Love Lessons and eternally compassionate souls.  Truly all who participated at Drifter’s were healed and healers alike.

 

Again, we would like to thank Drifter’s Hearts of Hope in Franktown, Colorado, for the use of their lovely facility and the benefit of working with their wonderful horses. Our gratitude to Manager, Jacqui Avis, for all her help and guidance in helping us choose horses and best utilize the facility.  We would also like to thank the students who put their faith in the horses to show them, guide them, and teach them what they need to learn, and they did.  ROTH students often come from far and wide to join us on these events and then they carry the message back home with them in an attempt to help humans with horses understand what it is to truly support and give back to the animals we love and who routinely give us their all.

To ROTH Certified Trainer, Jill Haase, thank you for helping move such a large number of horses and for helping keep eyes peeled to keep students safe who were not necessarily experienced horse people.  And thanks be to Jill for always keeping it light and keeping the laughs and the smiles rolling, because why not?

Lastly, THANK YOU, to Anna Twinney.  Your mission coming to life in this way must make you proud and I hope you smile when you think of the breadth and depth of your reach within the lives of horses and their people.  Your sacrifices and hard work do not go unnoticed.  For someone with the soul of a true healer, you have a warrior spirit and dedication to spreading the messages of love, compassion, and clear communication everywhere you go.  Thank you for being you, Anna!
