Quotes

Wild buffalo have walked the earth for tens of thousands of years. The planet chose them, through millions of years of evolution, to be the creators and caretakers of the grasslands and prairies. The buffalo are our elders, our relatives on this earth. They are not some presence who has suddenly appeared and become a 'problem' that humans must manage to death. They do not make mistakes. Humans do. Buffalo were chosen for the job that they do: walking the earth, gently eating the grass, tilling the soil, carrying the seeds, fertilizing the earth, creating habitats for other species, awakening water underground in the aquifers to help bring the rains, and to offer their abundant bodies as food and nourishment for not just humans, but for other predators and scavengers alike--for the land herself. They possess ancient wisdom that has been carried through their memories and blood lines since buffalo time began. They adopt orphans. They mourn the dead. They carry their young in their wombs for nine months. They teach the young. They care for the elderly. They play. They become frightened. They find comfort. They tend to each other. They teach us to be family. They want to live. Once upon a time we listened to them. We have forgotten to listen. The people who cause the buffalo so much suffering have become deaf and blind to their teachings. They have to, or they could not do what they do. But the buffalo are still here, still sharing their wisdom, still offering themselves. But the buffalo have that kind of patience, if they can survive this human culture, they will be there waiting for us to catch up."—Buffalo Field Campaign

Crow Friendship

For several years my resident male crow was a handsome fellow I called Dark Wing. He was easy to distinguish because one wing had been injured earlier in life, and kind of drooped if he did not consciously hold it up. We had a close relationship as far as communicating went, but I got the impression …Continue reading

A Wildlife Thanksgiving

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

The Raven Toll Collector

One of the things I love most about traveling in ceremony on behalf of the animals is how many small moments spin themselves out into stories.

It was early morning—the last week Yellowstone National Park was open—so traffic was minimal.

The scenery was breathtakingly beautiful. Winter was approaching, and nighttime temperatures had dropped below freezing. Mist clung to …Continue reading

A Story for Max, the African Grey

In my efforts to offer as many Zoo Animal Ambassadors as possible the opportunity to participate in shamanic ceremonies, and for me to connect with them and listen, I make unofficial visits to a few local places regularly. On a visit to Cougar Mountain Zoo I met an African Grey parrot named Max who appreciated a good story. …Continue reading

Reiki is for the Birds

Reiki is for the birds 4 ©2015 Rose De Dan www.reikishamanic.com

This morning as I was working at my computer I heard a muffled bang.

Turning I saw that a junco had hit the glass storm door, and was lying on my doorstep. She had one wing half outstretched and I feared that it might be broken. I sensed that she was very dazed from the impact, and made the decision to offer her Reiki energy healing from a distance rather than going out and picking her up. …Continue reading

Feathered Trust

It was early morning, and the softly slanting light held the promise of another beautiful summer day. After finishing my breakfast I was sitting in the open doorway of my back porch enjoying the lushly blooming splendor of the garden, and as I listened to the sounds of the fountain and the conversations of the birds I felt completely content with being exactly where I was. …Continue reading
