Our Gratitude Speaks when We Care and We Share the ROTH Way

 

As a result of the many donations Anna sends we often get lovely expressions of gratitude that come seemingly out of the blue!  It always brings a smile to our faces and warms our hearts to know that people are enjoying learning about the methods and bringing the message to their volunteers and other cooperating organizations.

We also got this message on Facebook from a student of the methods, Cynthia Lawson Greene of Sumner, MI, who was able to apply what she learned in Foals In Training DVD to her Mustang, Scarlet:

“Anna, we have your DVD set on foal training…we have applied it to gentling out mustang, Scarlet. I never thought about running and massaging the ears and surrounding area…Thank you. First time I did Scarlet pulled away some but now I can touch them at will…she is a sweetheart…thank you!”

Cynthia, we are SO pelased to hear that the FIT methods were easily applicable to Scarlet!  Thank YOU for offering a good home to the Mustangs!  We sincerely appreciate those of you who do.

This is just one more testimonial to the fact that the ROTH methods are NOT A COOKIE-CUTTER SYSTEM, but rather a methodology based in the language of Equus, which can be applied to each horse individually based on their learning style, likes/dislikes, personality, character and personal history.  When we use the language of the horse to speak and to request their collaboration, it eliminates the barriers that other “training systems” can create.  We are always thrilled to get messages of gratitude!  Thanks again, Cynthia, for Reaching Out to Share in the Success!

And, of course, the Foals have thier own course as well!  Learn how to start them right, from the ground up, and discover a path to partnership rather than a dominance-based, training relationship.

Anna works her magic at the Pregnant Mare Rescue

Lyn Hummer, with the Pregnant Mare Rescue in Watsonville, CA, shared the following in her most recent newsletter about Anna’s Animal Communication Workshop there at the beginning of March:

Along the way to finding our peace in the present moment through Animal Communication…

After Anna’s Animal Communication event at the Pregnant Mare Rescue in California, we received a reflection from a student who is near and dear to our hearts.  If two days of Animal Communication can do this for a soul, imagine what a year-long Mentorship Program could do for you….

IMG_1298

“I’m pleasantly surprised by the lingering gift of connection. The house is once again quiet as all the guests have headed home. Routines have returned to normal but a smile lingers as the connection remains. I am fully aware of the busy sparrow jumping back and forth collecting twigs and debris.  She hops across my path picking up the chosen stick. Yes, I am busy like that as well, back to the “daily’s” as I call them. I watch the tiny bird pause and glance my way before taking flight. To my surprise it doesn’t end there. I am part of a moment, receiving and observing messages and “knowings,” as I go about my day. It would seem every action around me has a purpose if I simply let it happen.

I check in with the horses before I must leave for work. I am anxious to visit Grace, a lovely mare that experienced an enormous shift through Anna’s communication session. She is indeed a different horse. Ears forward, welcoming, and interested in my hello, I stroke her serene face. I can feel her satisfaction of having been heard. We, as a group, listened, and as we commit to honoring her requests, her world is forever changed.

On the highway the traffic is rushing through the mountain pass. It’s a familiar commute for many of us. But today it “feels” different. I can sense I am still connected. I remain in the slower lane and enjoy the immense beauty around me. As we slow, in pockets around curves, it is a better opportunity for me to really enjoy the foliage. I have been driving this highway for fifty years and this experience is my first.

My thoughts run to Anna’s words “This is where horses live. They are present.” The weekend workshop opened the door to the knowledge, understanding and experiences available to all of us. Beyond the tremendous benefit of holding the capability of helping and bettering an animal’s life, it presents the way to change our own. This feeling of being connected to all is a leap forward toward inner peace and I know I don’t ever want to go back.”

Best,

Do you want to learn to talk to the animals?  Are they bringing messages to you of which you might be unaware?  How do you interpret those messages and what do you have yet to learn from the animals?  Do you yearn to know more about how they think, feel, and what they want out of life?  Do you want to discover your peace in the present moment that comes with the clarity of connection?

Join Anna for a unique opportunity to have a Master Animal Communicator as your mentor and discover the peace that abides within when we learn to silence the mind and to connect with Source.  Listen.  Can you hear the call?

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.

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!

Our gratitude to Source speaks when we hear of horses safely finding their way home after deviations in their lives.  With the cooperation of ROTH Certified Trainers, Lani Salisbury and Jill Haase, Anna was able to get Thelma ready to move on in her journey.  Thelma, it was a pleasure getting to know your beautiful and very willing soul.  Blessings and love on the rest of your journey!

Colorado Friends of the Horses we Love, We Request your Support

af7ffd43-6279-4eab-8c03-b8c781e2b7ba
Dear Colorado friends of the horses we love,
As some of you already know, in 2018 I am stepping away from many of the the day to day operations at Zuma’s Rescue Ranch and dedicating my time to legislation. 
Please join me by taking 10 min. a month to reach out to our legislators and protect America’s Horses, the innocent and iconic symbols of freedom. 
 
I will send you an email every month similar to this one asking for your help. Please share these emails with your Colorado horse loving friends. Help me make Colorado advocacy movement more active and effective. 
 
Below is quick and easy way to tell those that have the power to save America’s horses how you feel about the current proposal from the BLM advisory board to Kill 90,000 horses that are in long term holding.
Killing is not a solution. This is a band-aid to a problem the BLM has created. Needless to say there are other solutions to the wild horse population as well as the domestic horse issues.
Mass killing is not the answer, I hope we can agree on that…
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
Peace,
Jodi Messenich
Here are the talking points:
  • When calling your U.S. representative, say: My name is YOUR NAME and I am from Littleton, CO. As your constituent, I urge you to protect our nation’s horses from slaughter and our wild horses from mass extermination in the final FY18 Appropriations bill. Please also reach out to leadership and urge them to support these protections. Thank you.
     
  • When calling your U.S. senators, say: My name is YOUR NAME and I am from Littleton Colorado.  As your constituent and a strong supporter of equine welfare, I urge you to please support the Senate version of the Agriculture Appropriations bill, which prohibits the use of federal funds on horse slaughter. Please also support a prohibition on the use of our tax dollars to kill tens of thousands of wild horses and burros. Thank you.

Here are the contacts: some you need to go to the WEBSITE to get their contact form,  then copy paste the above requests.

A Month Dedicated to Giving and Receiving Thanks

A Special “Thank You” came from Zuma’s Rescue Ranch, a rescue with whom we are SO  BLESSED to partner year after year.

IMG_1156

Pictured are Jodi Messenich, owner and operator of Zuma’s Rescue Ranch, Elaine Nash of Fleet of Angels, who provided us with untouched mustangs for this years Trainers Course, and Miss Anna Twinney herself.

ROTH logo
“Every Year ROTH brings their training methods and clinics to Zuma’s, paying a facility fee and assisting with the training of horses. These clinics and the funding they generate help to offset the cost of the healing herd here at Zuma’s, as well as assist in getting some of the herd trained.”
         To Jodi and the Zuma’s Staff, we return the gratitude as you always provide us a magnificent facility and wonderful horses with whom to practice and share the methods.  We certainly appreciate all you do for the horses.  A very sincere and heart felt thank you right back at you guys!
