On My drive home from the course some things came flooding back to me. I used to work with animals, and due to an illness I was side tracked as the physical work became too much. I had fears of returning to sanctuary work because I felt I might “let the animals down again”. (Silly Stories) Boy was I feeling sorry for myself!
How could I continue to help animals and the natural world if I could not physically do anything?
At a lose for what direction to move into, I sought out a life coach…..This must be 8 years ago now. It was a 3 day workshop that I took with her and 2 other students. I was not expecting a new direction with animals, more like having to accept the fate of doing something I do not love or care about. But by the end of that workshop I felt so confident in my direction as an Animal Healer. I dove into Animal Communication, and took two beginner classes with two different instructors. Carol Gurney being the last one where I met Anna.
I came home and took a Reiki 1 class, and I began practicing. Well self doubt met me every step of the way, and it got the best of me. I hung up my Reiki, and the animal communication was also drowned out for the most part. It was still there, the animals were still talking to me, but I just did not engage for the most part.
It was clear to me after being in the Reach Out To Wisdom course I was to revisit these things again. It was clear because of the Joy that filled my heart when I thought about them. Absolute JOY!! These things were just lovingly waiting there for me until I returned.
My intention is to focus on animal healing, and the environment. I wanted it to be painless on my bank account, and be as near to my home as possible. I love how the universe answers! There was a walk for animals last year for a local shelter, and I participated in it with a group. The group organizer is also an animal communicator. I knew she also practiced some different healing modalities, but was not aware of what her focus was. I was not having much luck researching online, so I emailed her………..
She emailed me back saying she is a Reiki Master, and her focus was on the animals & the environment, and she was starting a new class in October, and would I like to attend? She charges a nominal fee because she does not want people to be deterred from taking the class. Beautiful!
Pepper the horse that was giving the big message all summer to take the Wisdom course first before any other, and walking away from me, etc., is now walking over to me, hugging me, loving me………….I have opened myself up, and am letting the Reiki flow, and some of the horses there are responding incredibly even getting in line to receive.
I did one of your meditations away from the horses the other day. I was outside up on a hill. I visited Pepper before I hiked up there, and he was very busy grazing, and so off I went. After the meditation I returned to the barn. As I approached the pasture…………..there was Pepper waiting at the gate for me. I offered a heart connection like the one I shared with Dakota and it was beautiful!
So I am flying high and feeling good, and I will continue to say thank you over and over! Thank You.
