Turning Lost into Found: ReikiShamanic tips for missing pets

Lily hides, ©Rose De Dan www. ReikiShamanic.com

I frequently receive requests to help find a lost dog or cat—a service that I don’t offer as a healer/animal communicator.

However, I have had enough experience with lost animals both personally and professionally to be able to offer some general support and guidance for anyone that finds themselves in the nightmarish situation of not knowing what …Continue reading

What is Shamanism?

http://reikishamanic.com/2011/01/30/grande-smudge-kit/

When I am asked what I do for a living most people look at me blankly if I say I am a shaman. Times have changed, gone are the days when everyone knew what shamans were. A long-ago time when every village/tribe respected and relied upon the skills of a medicine person (one of many names …Continue reading

Healing Horse, ©Rose De Dan www. ReikiShamanic.com

I awoke on this long-dreaded inauguration day of a 45th President of the United States (whose platform I do not support), with the joyful memory of a powerful dream.

I dreamt that I was going horseback riding with a group of people. Somehow I ended up on the lead horse—a mare—who I seem to recall was named …Continue reading

A Wildlife Thanksgiving

Secret Agent Squirrel Visits, ©Rose De Dan www.ReikiShamanic.com

It’s Thanksgiving Eve, and the aroma of the old-fashioned pumpkin pie as it bakes is heavenly.

As we all know, Thanksgiving is a holiday that traditionally involves physically gathering with friends and family, and the celebration of abundance in the form of good things to eat.

Earlier in the day, as I completed tasks in preparation for tomorrow’s …Continue reading

Last night after teaching class I briefly tuned in to the presidential election results in progress, and I felt guided to write the following words, which I posted on Facebook:

“Who the President of the United States is will not change who I am as a person. I will still believe in compassion, kindness, unity, love and …Continue reading

Spirit is the Leader: Prayers for Standing Rock

At #NoDAPL protest at Standing Rock a burning white sage smudge bundle is left at the feet of police.

This summer I had a personal experience involving poisoned water that caused me to be much more aware and grateful for the blessings of water every single day.

There were times that I had no running water (and that was not fun), but the absolute worst was when the water became highly toxic and vile tasting due to chemical leaching. I could not assuage my own thirst, that of my animals, or indoor or outdoor plants using water from the tap. We existed on bottled drinking water for weeks until the water could be tested and declared safe.

So when the protests camps at Standing Rock began coming to my attention I was personally in support of the mission of the water protectors, for in protecting water we protect All Our Relations (which includes us). …Continue reading

False (sadly): Buffalo did not stampede DAPL protest at Standing Rock on their own

Yellowstone Buffalo Hard Look, ©Rose De Dan www.ReikiShamanic.com

Nothing would make me happier than to report that the viral story circulating about the buffalo showing up on their own to support the water protectors at Standing Rock was true—especially since what I teach is that animals have opinions about what we are doing in this world, want to be heard, and are patiently waiting …Continue reading

Manitou and the Flying Jaguars

The day after sharing some lox during lunch with the flying jaguars (otherwise known as yellow jackets), I was relaxing on my lounge chair when I felt a pinch between the webbing of my big toe. Looking down I saw a yellow jacket, and now that he had my attention he inquired, “Lox?” Apparently the Rose …Continue reading

Inviting Flying Jaguars to Lunch

Yellow Jacket Flying Jaguar Salmon 2, ©Rose De Dan www.ReikiShamanic.com

While dining outside earlier this week enjoying my bagel with smoked salmon, capers and cream cheese, a yellow jacket landed on my thumb. Apparently he had invited himself to breakfast.

Bracing himself against my thumb he began to carve off a piece of the smoked salmon for takeout. Once he had his takeout tucked safely underneath, he …Continue reading
