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.

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!

A Tropical Dream Come True – The ROTH Newsletter in Paradise

1

It has been a dream of mine to help horses and humans heal globally and Costa Rica brought everything together beyond even our wildest imagination.  Reiki in the rainforest was intensified being surrounded by panoramic views of Arenal’s volcano and lake while exotic birds and wildlife joined us.  Imagine feeling the intensity of the power of the land…. 

This all-inclusive retreat through raging rivers, rainforest rides and up high into the clouds allowed for an extraordinary getaway. Virgins to energy healing the horses changed their expressions, behaviors, and interactions before our eyes experiencing love like no other….nobody walks away from this experience without having been deeply touched and their lives altered.  
 
I feel particularly blessed to have my family join me, to watch worry and stress slip away and my son flourish.  Unforgettable experiences alter a young life immeasurably and we witnessed  “Coyote Joseph” emerge.  Join us on this journey through the rain forest to manifest your dreams.
WHERE IN THE WORLD IS ANNA?

“Healing Journey in Paradise” was an amazing clinic that was truly inspirational for all. Working with Anna Twinney was an experience that I will not forget! The participants, most of her former students, were a wonderful group and it was a joy to have such beautiful, animal loving people here to share this week with us! Anna’s method of teaching inspired me to want to continue my work in Reiki with horses and incorporate it into my own program.  It was an amazing feeling to be able to move energy and heal horses and humans with only a few short days of Anna’s guidance. Anna did an Animal Communication session with my dog, Murphy, and she was spot on! We are now working with Murphy’s aggression, based on Anna’s suggestions, and he is doing wonderful! After two years, our employee was able to help us care for him without the fear he previously had. We are thrilled to have had this guidance and are deeply grateful!
 
Anna, Vin, and Joseph feel like family to us and we can’t wait for their return. The Kindred Connections/ROTH experience is a special experience that will change the way you work with animals forever.  ~ Nancy

CONNECTIONS MATTER
Do sloths talk as slow as they move?
You may think there is a direct link between a communication style and a class, but there is not.   Talking to animals as a whole is unique with a common thread named love; talking to primates, reptiles, amphibians is not differentiated by the species itself or indeed the breed, sex, age, size, and character.  One may find a difference on the soul level (young or old soul), intelligence and even subject choice and approach.  This is unique and based on each individual.  Sloths communicate in the same way as others, despite their slow movements.

With their unforgettable smiles, sloths touch hearts of the young and have most recently been featured in Disney’s movie Zootopia., best known for their slow movements and laid back nature sloths tend to sleep 20 hours a day.  Last February I was asked to connect with an abandoned sloth named Anakin who was struggling physically and had been rescued by Kids Saving the rainforest in Costa Rica.  Anakin’s story was so moving and his life such a tragic struggle, I was inspired to reach out to their president, Jennifer Rice to meet her in-person and offer my services in support of her mission, staff, volunteers and naturally the residents.  We designed our trip around this very visit!

“Thanks so much to Anna’s ability to not only communicate with horses but to communicate with wildlife as well.  She has changed the life of a young male Spider Monkey, Darwin, in the Kids Saving The Rainforest Wildlife Sanctuary.
Darwin has been angry, aggressive, and frustrated at times recently and we were at a loss as to how to make his life better.  Anna communicated with him and he knows he was heard and that we are making the changes he needed and wanted.  The change has been miraculous.
It is such a pleasure to see him, he is a new being.  He is calm, serene, and tranquil now.  I never knew that such a change could be possible.  
Thank you, Anna, for making this possible, you are a life changer.

Chewbacca was a three-toed baby sloth that was brought here in December 2015. 
He was the first sloth I got to see up close and we had an instant connection that afternoon. 
Sadly he passed away last June…
 
I approached Anna about him, I wanted to understand how such a deep connection works and what is the message behind that, especially as a biologist. I had never felt like that with any animal, not even a dog, before or after Chewie. 
 
She saw a picture of him and, to be sure it was Chewbacca, she told me something specific about him. She told me we used to stare at each other and I knew it was him, we did that all the time. I would go into the nursery and call him and he would turn his head and stare at me and follow me around. I knew it has to be him. Then she told me to ask something and I just asked her what was the message behind all this grief I still feel and after a few moments, she told me it was pure love, unconditional love. That our connection transcended beyond species and time. She told me he found unconditional love in me -just as I did in him- and she described our relation perfectly. Then she told me about his death that it was unexpected, for both him and me. And that we will not lose that connection, no matter what. 
 
The last thing she told me was that I should wear something that reminds me of him, and she said it should be around my neck or shoulder area, that it was special according to the messages she was getting from him. And it was, he was always in that area when we were together.

Coyote Joseph is on the Search for the Elusive Wood Bug!  Well… Sort of…
One of my greatest joys is watching and nurturing my son’s love and curiosity of nature and animals. While in Costa Rica, bugs, reptiles and amphibians were a big hit!  One of his favorite internet personalities to watch is animal expert Coyote Peterson.  As you can see he is a fast learner and will soon be releasing his own “Coyote Joseph” show.  Stay Tuned.  In the meantime why not help your kids to create their very own nature discovery show.

In these troubled and turbulent times, it is easy to get caught up in the confusion, the drama and the fear that seems to be running rampant through the world, the media and our own minds. When we are gripped by anxiety, focused on our very survival, it can be hard to remember that the power to create a truly fulfilling life, to affect a positive change on our world, and to live our destiny lies within us; no matter the circumstances on the outside.
The truth is, you are closer to your destiny than you realize. What if you knew you were only three days away from creating a fulfilling, abundant life? What if you were only 3 days from knowing what truly brings joy into your life? What If you were only 3 days from uncovering your life’s purpose? Come and join us in Costa Rica for a once in a lifetime chance to create the life you always dreamed of,  and work with Anna Twinney and Vincent Mancarella!
