Animal Communication Reaches Out to the East Coast! Testimonials to share….

IMG_5314

Anna’s East Coast tour started with horsemanship in New York, and then she moved into Animal Communication in Connecticut.  She then returned to New York for more Communication Sessions at For the LOVE of Dogs.  Truly it was a couple weeks that all enjoyed and from which each person took away new wisdom.

Above:  An Image of our students at Ray of Light Farms in East Haddam, CT along with the testimonials they share:

Shannon D. of Clinton, CT

This weekend gave me confidence in my own intuition by being able to ask questions and get confirmed answers rather than just feeling my way through a communication.

Laurie R. of West Suffield, CT

Love in its many forms was the theme of this incredible, 3-day seminar in Animal Communication.  Lovingly partnering with animals to really see them and hear their messages.  I learned so much about myself and what it takes to truly listen to the animals.

Christine R. of Bethany, CT

Anna is a master teacher – she can direct questions to a student, which causes her to dig deeper into what she has just observed and learned and helps to integrate the learning into practice.  Thanks and love….

Elaine S. of Quaker Hill, CT

I came to the workshop with no expectations, having never been around horses, thinking that this may be just about listening to instruction and not implementing it.  What I found was that this was very emotional for me in so many ways – a lot of tears – openly coupled with amazing realizations about myself – most of all.  In the end – I’m in the way – get into my heart and out of my mind.  Bless you, Anna Twinney, for your gift and for your ministry.

Amy W.J. of Waterbury, CT

This class has given me the confidence and validation I needed to continue my animal journey.  Anna is a wealth of knowledge that I have never gotten from any other animal communication class.  Thank you!

Cathy L. of East Haddam, CT

My heart feels hugged and embraced by like-minded people.  This clinic helped me embrace myself as a Reach Out to Horses Instructor, and helped me understand the importance of blending animal communication into my life.

Dora R. of Eastover, SC

What a profound experience.  Being reminded that I do have the ability to communicate with animals.  The profound experience came when a dog I was speaking to brought a human in from the other side.  Giving that message was so precious and moving.

Anna then traveled to Centerline Stables in Ossining, NY, and shared more communication with the people, horses and dogs who call Centerline their home!

 

And from Sharon M. of For the Love of Dogs at Centerline Stables:

Anna has been coming to Centerline Stables for something like fifteen years, and over the last three years she has been splitting her time in service to both the horses here as well as the rescue dogs who live on the property under the care of For the LOVE of DOGS Rescue.  She helps us help our dogs in many ways, primarily by giving voice to certain dogs’ needs, wishes, and requests through individual communications, and by providing wisdom and guidance to all of the humans who are responsible for these dogs’ well being and future adoption placement.

During her latest visit, a young female yellow lab mix named Gemmie gave a clear explanation of the type of home environment she wanted – a large open farmstead on which she can move in and out with one or two male dogs her size.  She showed herself as a good listener who would always be attentive to her people, and she took comfort in knowing that they would be there checking in with her as she moved around with a sense of freedom and spaciousness.  Giving Gemmie this voice helps us tremendously because we have an understanding her ideal home straight from her.  It also gives another perspective of who she is beyond her typical behavior at the rescue and helps to broaden our minds to what could be possible now and in the future.

Also during this visit, Anna led a workshop for us that focused on awareness of energy, the differences between each person’s and dog’s energetic qualities, and the impact of the ever-present language of energy.  We used cotton balls in an exercise to learn to quiet the mind and to feel.  We felt and shared each person’s unique energetic qualities, including nurturing, grounded and reliable, sensitive and small, uplifting and powerful, loving, and confident and controlling.  In becoming better attuned to our own particular energy qualities and how these interact with others around us, we also discussed the significant impact of congruence of energy, intent, and body language when working with dogs.  Even if we approach the excitable dog with indirect body language and a calm voice, a person with uplifting and powerful energy may unintentionally excite that dog.  A shy, untrusting dog may remain defensive when greeted with structured or controlling energy, but open up in the presence of nurturing energy.  This awareness and knowledge is huge as we strive to strengthen the effectiveness of our daily communication between human and canine beings.  A giant thank you to Anna from all of us – canine, equine, and human – at LoveDogs and Centerline!

Thanks go to all of the participants on Anna’s clinics, two-legged and four-legged!  Without your dedication to giving a voice to the voiceless and to learning the art of Animal Communication, none of this would be possible!  We greatly appreciate your participation!  Love, blessings and light to all!  We LOVE your hearts and souls!

Another fresh New Year is here; another year to live!  Let us banish worry, doubt and fear, in favor of love, laughter and generosity!  A hundred years from now, it will not matter the sort of house I lived in, what my bank account was, or the car I drove … but the world may be different because I was important in the life of animals and the creatures on this earth …and you can be too!  Enjoy this month’s inspirational newsletter.  Happy New Year from our herd, hounds and hearts to yours.

 

In The News

 

Animal communication touches lives like no other … from connecting people to their loved ones, supporting vets and other health practitioners, giving a voice to the voiceless, answering needs and even helping them transition to other side. Or sometimes, bringing them through from the other side to bring them home.  This article was recently published in the UK as horsemanship opens its doors to telepathic communication more and more.  Read all about Bouie’s story, a race-horse, who lost his races and was facing an unusual emergency, until this very communication.

Ask Anna!

Dear Anna,

How can I get started with Animal Communication?
There are many ways, the graphic below makes some suggestions for beginning to connect and communicate with your dog. If you have a cat or another friend, you can certainly adapt the exercises. The important thing is to begin to thoughtfully communicate. Or, if you’re really ready to learn … consider our Animal Communication Mentorship Program.

Anna & the Animals: A Glimpse Into Conversations
“Words failed me today during my consultation with an incredible dog diagnosed with an aggressive cancer. She did not describe herself to be stoic, but instead holding a warrior’s energy. She did not describe it to be fighting, but instead choosing life. Rather than heaviness around this Christmas season, she chooses to focus on health and wellbeing. If we could only bottle this feeling for all to hold on to during such challenges we all would have a feeling of peace and understanding.”

Learn to talk to the animals at home or live … our NEW mentorship program.
You asked for continued support, to truly delve deeper into your innate gifts, to understand the difference between imagination and a true connection, how to hold a conversation, the ethical standards in the industry and help to embrace animal communication as the REAL DEAL through a down-to-earth mentor.  We listened and are bringing animal communication into your homes…no matter where you are in the world!
Connections Matter
Social media notified an emergency; her trainer recommended he be killed, he was of no use.  She had 3-days only… and I moved into action to save his life asking for time. This vote of confidence alone gave her strength to sanction for him to come home, even before the consultation.  She knew no different and was taking the advice of her trainer, just like the majority of clients do.  Trusting those around them that they know best making life and death decisions and yet here was an innocent soul subjected to abuse at the buggy race track.  It was time to find out the truth and give him the chance he deserved, to be with the person he chose to be with and bring life back to his listless, beaten up body.  They are not commodities to be used and discarded, but instead athletes with futures.

Hi Anna ♥

Thank you for that you care and thanks for indescribable good help. I do not know how I’ll ever thank you enough ♥

Yes, my boy came home yesterday and he was very happy to see me. Now we will use the day to enjoy ourselves together and his mood has risen considerably.

I’ll keep you updated along the way about how things are going with us, and hope to prove to others that the conversation we had saved the life of my horse and that there are other possibilities than just to listen to a coach’s opinion. I can guarantee you that it is slaughtered many horses a week around Scandinavia precisely because of this.

Wishing you a brilliant wonderful evening Anna ♥

Hug from Maserati and Elin ♥, Norway

Where in the World is Anna?

 

Anna Takes Animal Communication to non-profits on the East Coast: Ray of Light Farm in East Haddam, CT and For the Love of Dogs!

Everyone talks to their dog. Those of us with pets, have had casual “conversations” with our furry, feathered, or even finned friends. It’s human nature to chat. We’ve likely bent Rover’s ear too long over trivial irritations that happened at work or lamenting the tedious commute home. Our pets have long been victims of our mindless self-talk and keepers of our deepest secrets.
 
But what if you could have a real conversation with your animal companion?  What if you knew what they were really thinking or saying …
Anna returns to For the Love of Dogs every year coaching their staff, volunteers and supporters on the language of energy so they may be able to adjust to each rescue dogs’ needs and improve their approach, beliefs and interactions.  The ladies, many from New York City, suspected these “things” were possible, but had not experienced them personally or been able to put words to their expressions.  For several days Anna introduced them to the power of the pendulum, kinesiology and spoke up by giving a voice to the dogs at the rescue.  Many described their past, the present conditions, their characters, hopes, fears, needs and dreams – allowing for the rescue to pave the way making improvements and ensuring they found the best fit for the dogs, making the adoptions permanent and perfect!  Leading the way through complimentary therapies Anna includes nutritional supplements, therapeutic essential oils and energy healing into her teachings in support of all rescues.
Anna & the Animals: A Glimpse Into Conversations
“Imagine being frightened of the room light being turned on, because of what was about to happen to you. This is the very feeling I got to experience today as I connected to a little innocent soul as he described his adoptive home experience. My beliefs that dogs express their sadness through their actions vanished as I began to cry, releasing his fear and feeling joy that he had been heard and this would never happen to him again. He explained he could not cry tears like humans could … an action we may take for granted. A priceless consultation establishing how to help him forward and find his next home, a home he could describe and choose. A Christmas present like no other from his rescue … and yes, and a request for a bow wrapped bone:)!”

The exceptional clients from The Animal Communication Dream Retreat share with us their thoughts and reflections after their amazing week at the White Stallion Ranch in November.
“Coming from a scientific background, I am always looking for logic and a validated outcome.  I have recently been curious about, and felt the desire to explore animal communication, but never was drawn to the proper teacher.  Anna “appeared out of the blue” and I knew that she was the one who could relate to me and become my teacher, mentor, and inspiration.  After completing the course, Anna was able to meet all my expectations and infinitely more.  Now I feel that my journey has definitely begun.  I know that it was the animals who sent me to Anna.  Do not miss any opportunity to just be in her presence.  She is so incredibly gifted.  You will learn and grow and begin to realize your potential.  Let your journey begin.”Marcia Lorenz
“I had been looking for answers in connection with Animal Communication and how to move forward.  Although there is a lot of information to be found via the web and in books as well as recommendations from others etc.  But for me I was looking for someone I felt a connection with and that I could follow as being a mentor.  This is exactly what I discovered in Anna and I am so excited that I feel I can now move forward with confidence.  A huge thank you is not enough to express how I really feel when trying to convey that through a few lines on paper.” ~ Lynda Marks

Snow Day: The Tragic Consequence and Life-Affirming Perseverance of the Nurse Foal

Snow Day:  The Tragic Consequence and Life-Affirming Perseverance of the Nurse Foal

By Anna Twinney

I had never seen a horse graze from its knees. But that was exactly what Snow, a majestic, 2-year old, Appaloosa Colt was doing. I thought to myself, “I couldn’t have made him do that, I barely touched his line.” I had wanted to move a short distance, so I could relax on the bleachers nearby while he ate, but just requesting those few steps made him drop to his knees. Perhaps it was a desperate attempt to stay on the lush patch of grass or, potentially, a learned behavior pattern.

I reassured him he could stay. He got back on his feet and walked with me so I could sit down.   I could have ignored this mannerism and chalked it up to a fun story about a playful and mischievous colt, but the behavior was so unusual I felt the origin was worth exploring.

I also noted that instead of nibbling at the grass and continuously picking little tufts, like most horses, he took chunks of grass. He filled his whole mouth with one bite and would bring his head up high, as he did his best to swallow the mouthful.   At first I thought it might be that he needed to settle into a groove, but it became clear this was his way of eating. He looked rushed and was taking whatever he could get. With each mouthful he would take the grass out by the roots before moving onto another. There was no casual grazing.   Snow’s way of eating resembled a hungry orphan or someone who was never taught how to eat. I had not seen this behavior before either.

Not everyone would have noticed his unique way of eating, but I did and had to wonder where it originated. A herd will mirror one another and casually graze with their heads down for long periods of time. It’s a beautifully tranquil and spiritual occurrence, to watch wild ones blissfully eat in harmony, but this was not the case with Snow. I wondered if he had ever learned to graze and if this was as a direct result of his youth.

It was then I remembered Snow’s past.

At just a few days, or possibly weeks old, Snow had been rescued 2 years prior by a group including Ray of Light Farm and Reach Out to Horses. He was “Orphaned”. Not because his mother had died. Instead, is was determined that he had been forcibly taken from his mother and found himself abandoned, too young and innocent to take care of himself.   New to this world he was most likely left to fend for himself in either a stall or trailer. His only choice was to figure out how to eat and drink… or die. He was the smallest of the foals we had rescued and the smallest I had ever seen in my twenty years of rescuing horses.

I could hardly believe someone could do this to an innocent being.

 

Unfortunately he had been born into the nurse foal industry. A heartless, cruel business in which, reportedly, thousands of foals find themselves as “biproducts”, of no value to the stewards who manage the nurse foal barn. Their mothers are bred purely to function as nurse mares to raise more valuable foals, normally born to top performance horses. Nurse foal barns can usually be found primarily close to racetracks.

Not only had Snow found himself isolated and lost without ever knowing why, but he also came to us very sick. Within days he sought out human connection and valued the comfort of human touch in the gentling process. Innocently and trusting he forgave the very same species that had tossed him aside to die.   I remember thinking, that nobody deserves to be punished or treated this way, let alone a newborn infant.

When his group of foals first arrived milk replacer was arranged for them and placed in special buckets for the foals to drink. Quickly they began suckling on the side of the buckets for comfort, mimicking suckling their mother’s teats. It was heartbreaking to watch. We noticed missing hair from many of their ears and discovered this was due to the foals suckling one another. Innately they knew to find dark and damp places from which to suck, be this around the buckets, each other’s ears, or sheaths.

We kept the foals next to one another during the day’s training and together in the herd at night. We never wanted them to feel isolated or abandoned again. It was like watching a group of kindergarteners with little parental guidance. With hay provided freely they would munch away throughout the day sporadically napping in between meals. While we watched some of them adopting natural grazing habits, Snow must have created his own way.

We offered our very best; a second chance at life, asking, and apparently receiving, his forgiveness. At first touch he would buckle in pain and through veterinary care we discovered that not only was he not able to drop his penis to urinate, but he was suffering from a potentially fatal parasite. This ailment would take months of special ongoing care from the rescue, but this little warrior showed his true nature and eventually pulled through.

The sound of horses returning to their stalls snapped me back to the present. I realized my time with Snow was up. I had assigned the students in my Holistic Horsemanship Foundation Course a fun exercise of discovering the motivating interests of their horses and, in the distance, I noticed horses returning to their stalls.

Giving Snow a couple more minutes to enjoy his banquet, he understood my telepathic message this time, and willingly came along with simply a soft touch. It had been precious time together. After leading him back to his stall, with gratitude I removed Snow’s halter, and said my farewells, looking forward to our many meetings in time to come. I left him with my love, appreciation and admiration.

Later I inquired with the farm as to why they thought Snow had developed this strange behavior of “knee grazing”. Bonnie the manager of the farm knew exactly what I was talking about and remembered how Snow had even drunk his milk in that manner.

She explained that after the rescue, the farm had found 2 surrogate mares willing to accept the foals, which happen to be mini’s. Both mares took the foals on as their own and accepted their suckling. The youngsters had to lower their heads down quite low to reach these mares teats and it was then that Snow learned to make himself smaller. Snow had the chance to graze and learn from the small herd and yet somehow missed the grazing style. They had provided the most natural lifestyle they could with the circumstances they had available to them.

My heart was filled with both sorrow and admiration for this beautiful soul. Snow had endured so much, more pain than any creature should have to experience, especially one so young – all because he was born to the wrong mare. And yet he found his way out the other side.   He could have given up, fallen into deep depression, and chosen to leave the planet. But he didn’t. He took the challenges of a rough start and, with the help of many kind people and horses, turned his circumstances around and found a new life and a new beginning.

Unlike so many nurse foals, his journey had a happy ending. I take solace in that thought as I, with so many others in the world, continue to work diligently to give more horses like Snow a chance at a life of happiness, partnership, and love.

Saving Horses One at a Time

Offering a “ray of light” to assist foals that are the by-product of the drug industry.

By Karena Garrity

Rescuing forgotten foals from certain death has become common place for Bonnie Buongiorne, founder of Ray of Light Farm. For the past five years, Boungiorne and her dedicated staff have worked hard to ensure that foals, who are the unfortunate “by-products” of the Premarin drug industry (which uses pregnant mare urine to create menopause drugs), find a safe haven and a “ray of light” at this small non-profit farm in East Haddam.

This year, Boungiorne along with transport provided by EARS (Equine Angels Rescue Sanctuary in New Milford, CT), was able to offer sanctuary to eight such…… click here to read the full article.

Is John Lennon Saving Foals from the Other Side!?!

Lil Bit Ranch North  

The Answer is Yes!… sort of…

An anonymous donor has incredibly donated a letter written by John Lennon himself to be auctioned online by Equine Angels Rescue Sanctuary. All the proceeds from this auction will go towards not only the rescue of our foals but, if we get a high enough bid, the rescue of even more foals in the future!

If you are a Beatles or a Lennon fan, you really don’t want to miss this chance to get your own piece of rock history while helping to save lives at the same time!

Find out how you can bid on this one of a kind letter!

September 27th, 2011 – East Haddam, CT

Equine Angels Rescue Sanctuary – CT, Ray of Light Farm – CT, and Equine Voices Rescue and Sanctuary – AZ are joining forces with Reach Out to Horses based out of Golden, CO, to rescue 12 foals and assist in the closing of a former Canadian PMU breeding farm.   In addition the proposed action plan will result in placing the remaining mares in sanctuary, gelding two year old stallions and helping to end the cycle of breeding for this Canadian farmer.

E.A.R.S. and Reach Out to Horses have already begun raising funds through sales of the new 4-DVD set Success: Foals in Training and through fundraising clinics and other events by Anna Twinney and Reach Out to Horses.  But we need your help.

The estimated cost for this endeavor is $16,100 so we are seeking individuals, and organizations who wish to assist in this inspiring project.  Whether it be donations, adoption, fostering or sponsoring, all assistance is welcome.  For more information, or to help save the lives of these foals, mares and stallions, contact Frank Weller, president of Equine Angels Rescue Sanctuary at 203-733-3576, or Anna Twinney, founder of Reach Out to Horses at  info@reachouttohorses.com, or click here to donate what you can to save these horses.

E.A.R.S. has worked for almost 9 years with these and other local farmers when they first saw the wisdom and win-win-win-win opportunities that would result if allied with the farmers. The genesis of that outreach is well documented in the book “Equine Angels: Stories of Rescue, Love and Hope“.

“The reason that this good faith alliance works is that we have spent time with the farmers and their families.”, says E.A.R.S. founder Frank Weller, “We understand the social and financial dynamics that are a huge part of their decision making process.”

Over the years E.A.R.S. has been able to ferret out the people who will live up to their word and those who won’t and to establish a verifiable protocol to put the mares in sanctuary. They now have trusted people in place who really care for the mares and report their condition. They know that other people are also reporting to E.A.R.S and all reporters are unaware of the identity of our other agents. In addition E.A.R.S. has created close relationships with the vets, the farm agents, the farmers and their families. The government takes meticulous statistics and we trust most of their numbers which have followed the decline of Premarin farming.

In addition to securing sanctuary for the mares and stallions E.A.R.S. will transport all 12 foals to a rescue just over the border in North Dakota. From there, 6 will go to Equine Voices Rescue and Sanctuary near Tucson, Arizona and 6 will go to Ray Of Light Farm in East Haddam, Connecticut where they will participate in the Reach Out to Horses Week of Foal Gentling Program.

E.A.R.S. and Ray Of Light Farm have collaborated on similar rescues for almost 5 years now and this will be the 3rd successful year of the ROTH Week of Foal Gentling Event.

Possibly the best piece of this effort is that this retired farm will no longer be in the Premarin farming or the breeding business all together. Financial implications are part of that decision and a as a working farm, they have other viable sources of income. That seems to make a big difference in that the farmers with other choices are less likely to pursue breeding for meat as a revenue source. As a rescue E.A.R.S. has often encountered that mindset and absolutely cannot enable farmers to breed by buying their foals. That would be a step backwards to say the least.
