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:

Learning the life-changing art of Reiki in their incredible, beautiful landscape was, quite simply, transformational.

Authentic connection and magical transformation – this was the result of my reiki experience with Anna Twinney.  Join the tribe/herd and let the magic begin!

Happy S. of CO

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!

Richard J. of VA

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!      

How Can we Facilitate our Animals’ Tranquility Over the 4th?

Dearest Anna,

Every year when the sun is high for long periods and the temperature gets really warm, I anxiously await this event. I don’t know exactly when it will come, or for how long it will last. It begins sometimes slowly, with a snap, a crackle, a fizzle, and a pop, but later on, after dark, the big booms arrive. I can feel them shake the house – the concussion in the air – my eardrums are pierced by this repetitive sound. Sadly, it’s not just brief; it’s not just one night, as this tends to go on for a whole weekend, and often even two. Sometimes my family will even leave me alone during this time, at which point I hide under the bed, or crawl into the darkest recess of the closet, and I desperately hope everything will be ok. Anna, how can my guardians help calm and ease my tension during this time? Everyone seems overjoyed and like there is something to celebrate. I would hate to ruin their fun with my upset and panic.

Yours truly,

Freedom the Beagle

 

_________________________________________________________________________________

Dearest Freedom,

How beautiful is your heart? I wish all souls were as sensitive and selfless as you, not wanting to ruin the fun of others simply because you are upset. Well, your upset is a big deal and it shouldn’t be minimized. This day is actually a celebration for us, a celebration of our freedom, the very thing after which you were named. However, our freedom to celebrate our American heritage and tradition shouldn’t have to affect you so deeply.  I have just the thing that I know you will find helpful.  It’s a spray that will allow you to relax, that will calm the nerves a bit, and will allow you to enjoy the fun had by your two-legged family. Tell them to put 5 sprays either directly into your mouth or on your food, and to repeat every few minutes until they see a difference in how you feel. Please tell them this can also be used for vet visits should you get nervous, and for a number of other stress-inducing situations like travel or boarding. Bless your heart, sweet Freedom. I know you will find some peace in your situation with just this natural, Dynamite remedy!

Love always,

Anna

Peppermint for President!

Peppermint

We all have our stories of woe to tell, this is for certain. Mine includes a major spinal fusion surgery at a very young age, nerve damage in numerous places, premature arthritis, and myriad other little fun things that come with the body of someone who really lived and breathed each and every day with horses in her early life and has the scars to prove it. I was hard on my body, riding was hard on my body, and some of my less-graceful encounters with horses on the ground have definitely been hard on my body. If only I had known then what I know now about safety…if only I had met Anna when I was 12 instead of…well, a couple decades later.

Living in Colorado as well can aggravate some of these issues, as the cold and the altitude are often not kind to joints; neither are some of the dry, summer conditions and the ever-shifting Barometric Pressure, but for someone like me who is probably never going to move because I LOVE it here, and who cannot take prolonged Opiate medications, nor prolonged anti-inflammatories to help with chronic pain, what is there left to do?

My friend, I introduce you to Peppermint Oil. I say this with full awareness that if someone had told me I could temper fear-inducing nerve pain, muscle spasms that cause me to utter things I probably shouldn’t, and joint pain that I will likely have the rest of my life, I would have laughed at your naivete. How cute! You want to help treat my pain with what is essentially a Christmas candy? Well, older, wiser, and more open-minded, this is what I am telling you is possible.

I don’t just use Peppermint for my chronic pain on my back and sciatic nerve, I have used it for sore throats, tight chest, coughs, sunburns, headaches, upset stomach, acid reflux, tooth pain, restless legs at night, mosquito bites, and, probably the most important for someone like me who is afraid sometimes of just how long the pain will last, how bad it might get, whether I will have to go to the ER, whether I will have to miss work, whether I will be able to take care of my horses, clean the barn, feed the dogs, drive my car, sit, lay down, sleep…and on and on ad infinitum, GROUNDING.

When I inhale and take a deep, lung-filling breath of Peppermint, I am present. The problems, the worries, the future concerns that may never come to pass are gone because I am grounded quite instantly. So, in addition to the relief of physical ailments is the added relief of anxiety. There’s just something so very healing about it because it soothes me, mind, body, and spirit, just when I need it most.

I put Peppermint directly on my skin anywhere, but some people will prefer a carrier oil because it can be quite strong. You’ll want to wash your hands and make sure you don’t get any in your eyes, of course, as even after washing my hands thoroughly I have found it in my eyes on occasion.

After having doctors tell me I would be on a number of medications for the rest of my life, medications that are in the spotlight right now and the focus of hot debate, I know I have a more holistic option with this natural approach that often gets me over the pain hump, and before I know it I have moved on mentally just enough for the body to relax and remedy whatever was the issue at the time. It is because of this I say, Peppermint for President! May the prospect and healing possibility of Peppermint grace your life the way it has mine.

Love Always,

Lacey Knight

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!

The Sunset Ride: Written the Day After My Riding Accident Back in January

The sunset ride is only just coming back to me now, it feels like a dream. Gradually I’m piecing things together. The last moments I remember were seeing my mare trot towards us calling from the other side of the fence in dim light. I was close to home. My last thought was: “All you have to do is stay on, you will stop eventually.” From then on it’s all a blank. I have no recollection. I’m not sure how long I was knocked out and unconscious lying on the ground, or how I came off my horse, how I walked back home having her by my side.

He tells me I called for him inside the house telling him something was wrong, but I didn’t know what. My face told the story for me. How much time went by is a mystery to me, but it was dark. I have no recollection.

I “awoke” on the staircase with a familiar face taking care of me, gradually recognizing my surroundings and yet not knowing what time of year it was, only to be startled to see Christmas decorations. I knew my name and my son’s name. I didn’t recognize what I was wearing and thought I had just woken up from a dream. Why was there so much interest when I had just awoken? My hubby was naturally concerned with my severe confusion and after I insisted on showering we spent Saturday evening in emergency trauma.

I walked in by myself with extreme lower back pain, it reminded me of going into labor and walking like I was about to give birth. Surprisingly, I had no headache despite feeling extreme nausea. The trauma unit took my horse riding situation seriously and put me through all kinds of scans to finally determine it was no worse than a concussion. With debris tangled in my hair, my helmet most likely saved my life.

I’ve been through a vaulting (Gymnastics on horseback) accident, head-on car accident, and have been the passenger in a rolled over Police vehicle. I’ve been assaulted on numerous occasions and have been kicked, bitten, yanked, dragged, and fallen off horses a number of times, but never experienced broken bones or a concussion before. I consider myself well-taken-care-of.

I am thankful my Creator did not call me home just yet and I was brought to tears this morning when my 5-year old son stated: “but Mummy you were wearing a helmet, right?” He already knows the importance of this protection. ” I would love you forever…” he said, as he contemplated his thoughts. Instead, I am surrounded by angels to learn lessons I have yet to discover.

I will take care of myself and nurture those pieces that have been bruised as I care about my body. This time, instead of treating my body simply as a machine that needs servicing I will feel the love for myself. My life will never be the same as I unravel the effects of this fall, but I do know it will be better.

What Oil I chose to Help Mitigate Effects of the Fall and to Regain my

Brain Power

Brain power

Brain Power Essential Oil is an excellent blend of essential oils that is specifically designed to bring mental clarity and greater focus that is sometimes associated with mental fatigue or a long day at work.

It contains oils that are very high in sesquiterpenes, which support healthy brain function.  Use it before a meeting or competition to give you that mental edge. Or use it to help you focus during meditation. Either way, Brain Power is a welcome blend.

Brain Power essential oil is one of my favorite essential oil blends and I often use it when working with animals.  Alternate it with Clarity Essential Oil and see which one works better for you and your companions. Combine with any blend to make it more effective!
