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.

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.

Jill H. of Redmond, WA

Spectacular scenery, overflowing hospitality, guided horseback rides through the jungle paired with animal communications and Reiki for humans and horse; Anna’s Costa Rica adventure was a dream come true.  With gratitude for opening my body, mind, and spirit to a whole new world.

Nancy Z. of El Castillo, CR

Anna is an amazing person and an outstanding teacher with a special gift to share with the world.  Her passion and love for what she does to help horses and humans is changing the world.  She is such an inspiration and this clinic touched my heart and expanded my awareness of nature, horses,  and the connection that we have with one another.  I highly recommend Anna’s teachings and can’t wait until my next clinic with her!

Nancy F. of North Lawrence, OH

Costa Rica provided the perfect environment for me to dip my toe in the pool of Reiki knowledge.  Anna is a gifted instructor and I would highly recommend this clinic.

Marie S.B. of Pasadena, CA

I attended the Healing in Paradise clinic to learn what Reiki was, work on animal communication, and to ride in the jungle.  The surprise was after a session of Reiki on the horses, the little, red trail-horse-mare who I chose as a partner for the week then stood taller, coat shined, and she was more at ease with the other trail horses.  I cannot wait to go home and ask my horse if he would like Reiki healing!

Trish M. of South Weber, UT

Coming to the jungle of Costa Rica added the peace and beauty to the Course.  I felt it made the Reiki and animal communication connection stronger.  The finale of going it the waterfall just gave it that added touch.  All the love and laughter within the group gave the love and acceptance that was needed to a few in the group.  Joseph and his teaching sessions were wonderful and should be included in future “retreats.”

Taylor M. of Fall City, WA

During this retreat I was introduced to Reiki, animal communication, and horses in a whole new perspective.  Coming into the trip I had a lot of horse knowledge but was brand new to the art of energy healing and had very limited knowledge on communicating with animals through anything other than body language.  As the retreat comes to an end, I am very appreciative that I had such an opportunity like this and look forward to attending more clinics in the future, as I have much to learn.

Lani S. of Redmond, WA

WOW!  This was a truly epic journey in Costa Rica.  The extraordinary scenery and wildlife paired with Anna’s exceptional teaching made for a wonderful time.  I’m taking truckloads of information and experiences home with me.  The memories made at Anna’s Clinic will forever stay with me.  I learned so much and will continue to learn along this journey.

Testimonials from ROTH’S 2016 Bitterroot Ranch Retreat

Joanne Pulis of British Columbia
The combination of Anna’s wonderful teaching, receiving Reiki attunements here at the beautiful Bitterroot Ranch, practicing on each other and sharing with the horses was a magical, once-in-a-lifetime experience. I am grateful and feel blessed for all the beautiful people, animals and all I have learned and experienced.  My heart is full!
Naomi McKinstry of Loxahatchee, FL
Amazing.  Once-in-a-lifetime experience!  Everything from the horsemanship, Reiki, and Reiki on horses was personally moving and inspiring.  Supportive learning environment and for all aspects.  So grateful to have had this experience with Anna at Bitterroot Ranch, couldn’t have been more perfect.
Mary Ehrgood of Oconomowoc, WI
The two days of horse communication and connection increased my awareness of my language of the horse and then two days of Reiki levels 1 and 2 deepened my awareness of my values and commitments and gifts.  The last day of Reiki with horses integrated my previous days and I was open to the personalities and beauty of each individual horse in ways I had never been before.  The combination of horse communication through understanding the language of the horse and the deep integrity and power of the beautiful Reiki communication gave me immense learning. And Bitterroot Ranch, the people, horses and land are the best I could have imagined.
Carolyn Schieren of Louisville, CO
Taking a workshop with Anna Twinney is a journey of mind, body and soul, facilitating transformational change in visceral understanding of the essence and language of Equus, and how they as sentient beings reveal how human shows up in the world now, while opening doors on how to be moving forward.
Cynthia Starks of Dubois, WY
Anna has been a wonderful teacher of natural horsemanship as well as Reiki.  Thank you, Anna, for sharing your knowledge and heartfelt gift of love and empathy; compassion and energy.
Dan Starks of Dubois, WY
I will always remember this week and often use what I learned.  Thank you!
Nancy Neafus of Morrison, CO
As an intuitive energy healer I have often been reluctant to learn Reiki.  I will be incorporating Reiki into my healing now as I have found it to be a beautiful, powerful, love-based modality.  Anna’s ability to read people and horses combined with her teaching methods, passion and compassion, opened new opportunities for me for personal growth and development.  It has been a magical week!
Janet Lunnon, Lakewood, CO
Anna Twinney and the Bitterroot Ranch…an unforgettable experience!  Anna is The Horse Whisperer Extraordinaire and her ability to demonstrate and teach the language of the horse is beyond amazing.  Her compassion for horses and for her students is beyond compare.  I arrived at Bitterroot Ranch depleted and empty, and I left with a full heart and a new lease on life, and a new appreciation for energy healing…for BOTH the horse and the human soul!  Thank you, Anna!
Andrea Pomarico of Castle Rock, CO
Divine, transformative and poetic beyond words!  The expansive heart connection I experienced between horse, human, land and Source was undeniably magical during our lovely week stay at Bitterroot Ranch.  The amplified clarity and intensity in which I am now able to intuit and channel energy is so much more prominent after receiving my Reiki Master attunement, which is the perfect compliment to the many other vibrational healing modalities I already utilize.  I am in awe of Anna’s unique gift of seamlessly blending strangers with group experiences that speak to all levels of ones mental, physical, and emotional awareness while allowing for very personalized, individual growth.

ROTH Reiki and Energy Healing travels to the U.K.

IMG_0784 (1).jpg
Katherine Beard:
Reiki Masters – a beautiful experience facilitated by Anna Twinney giving us the space to examine our own healing pathway/our own heart truth and the opportunity to let go of that which no longer serves us thus allowing new paths to unfold.
Claire Preddy:
When you set out on the Reiki journey the path isn’t always smooth and you get what you need maybe over what you want or expect.  For me It was the release of labels.  We are all given labels and judgements as we travel through life. Until I set out on my Reiki Master path I was unaware that the most hurtful of the labels/judgements had stuck and become “me”.  I defined myself through them totally unaware I was doing so.  The healer had to be healed and it was a distressing process.  I always knew it was to be Anna who attuned me to Reiki Master, no one else would do and I can think of no other person I would trust with the task of helping me heal.  She is a gifted soul who can hold space to provide the safety you need and the wisdom to guide you through the process.  Thank you for listening to my call Anna; blessings and gratitude always.
Julia Flower:
After completing two of Anna’s webinars and watching her DVDs I felt really excited to be in her presence and spending time with her has been a real highlight in my life.  I have completed Reiki 2.
