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
This article was originally written in 2009 and appeared on my old website as the third of a series of three entitled “Answering the Call of the Wild.” It feels like the time is right to publish them again. In Part 1 I struggled to understand what a wolf in the Woodland Park Zoo was trying …Continue reading
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
Gorgeous “Mama Squish” was rescued by Genevieve G. Animal Advocacy (along with her daughter, Dot). Currently her job description is as the store cat for Next to Nature in West Seattle.
Last week I was in the store to purchase some much needed supplies for my own cats. I said “hi” to Squish in passing, but as …Continue reading
I first met Cassandra when she contacted me about the possibility of taking my Reiki classes. She had taken Reiki training in the past, but wanted a teacher who offered personal mentoring as well as a community. I am glad she chose me, as it has been a pleasure to hear her stories about the benefits …Continue reading
As you all know by now, I love Reiki, and I am passionate about teaching and sharing its benefits with others.
For many years I have celebrated my birthday by teaching a Reiki class because it always felt good to do so.
This year I was scheduled to begin teaching a Reiki 1 teleclass that week, …Continue reading
Shamanic ceremonies don’t always go the way you expect, especially when there is a very determined cat named Manitou involved. …Continue reading

I crossed my beloved half bobcat Cougar over into spirit at his request on September 19, 2015. He was over 18 years old and his body could no longer hold his spirit comfortably. We had 16 years together—but it is never long enough. Cougs, so glad you are free—but I miss feeling your face pressed to …Continue reading
For many years I have taught my students that smudging is essential for the health of people as well as animals. And I share the same information with my clients. Recently I saw those benefits dramatically illustrated for dog Lizzie.
When I first met Lizzie she wore a vest that proclaimed that she was blind and deaf. …Continue reading
It has been a little over a year since Manitou first appeared in my back yard as a starving cat in mid-November. My small cat family and I have celebrated one Christmas with Manitou already, but I feel as though this will be his first real one with us. When he joined my household he was suffering from what I would call PTSD from abuse and abandonment issues, and he needed a lot of healing and understanding. …Continue reading
The first dog that I adopted after leaving home was three year-old collie/shepherd mix I called Bear. She came into my life at a time when I truly needed her protection and support, and I came to love her dearly. However Bear had a few vices, one of which was food. I made sure to keep temptation out of her way at home, but that became more difficult when visiting my family at the holidays. …Continue reading
I have the honor of teaching Reiki to some very wonderful and enthusiastic students who take what they have learned and apply it with extremely positive benefit for all aspects of their lives and the lives of their animal companions.
While the healing energy of Reiki Level 1 is powerful, Reiki Level 2 expands the benefits exponentially …Continue reading
Since ancient times many different species of animals have also served bravely. While I deplore the need for war, I am deeply moved by the efforts of the animal heroes who have served alongside the human warriors. A few of those animals have been officially recognized as war heroes. …Continue reading

Last fall my backyard was undergoing a plague of moles—or perhaps it was simply one very industrious mole. Molehills littered the yard and the brazen inhabitant of the one closest to the house would commence renovations literally at my feet as I sat reading.
Lots of research resulted in my …Continue reading
Recently I conducted a Peruvian despacho ceremony in honor of Earth Day and Spring. Despite there only being two human participants the energy was very strong, in part because we invited the Stone, Plant and Animal People and the natural elements (Oceans, Rivers, Winds and more) to add their prayers, too.
As he had done for the …Continue reading
The mystery cat made his first move, rushing across the back yard to greet me enthusiastically. He was wildly affectionate, head-butting me so enthusiastically I almost fell over. …Continue reading
Taken 06/01/13 as Jake set off on a three-hour hike with his person. Go, Jake!
“Regular energy healing sessions re-energized my 15 year-old dog. He is now enthusiastic about walks and life in general.”
“My 15 year-old dog Jake was aging visibly and rapidly. He seemed dazed and confused much of the time and had become increasingly …Continue reading
I had been doing regular Reiki and shamanic energy healing sessions for cat Tank, who needs ongoing support for his kidney issues, and Jan asked me if I might have a Vi Miere essence mist that could help her cat Poppy feel less stressed and more relaxed.
I did a shamanic reading with the intention of Poppy’s …Continue reading
On Friday, April 26, 2013 I said good-bye to my beloved Kiya. The vet had thought that her time had come in January, but my fierce Kiya, lioness in a little cat body, had other ideas. Like the miracle kitten she had been—through sheer will, immense love of life and the help of a village of …Continue reading
