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

Answering the Call of the Wild, Part 3

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

Saying Farewell to Cougar

Cougar, ©2002 Rose De Dan, Wild Reiki and Shamanic Healing

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

Animal Healing with Smudging

Deluxe Smudge Trio ©Rose De Dan www.reikishamanic.com

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

Manitou and the Merry Christmas

Manitou and the Merry Christmas ©Rose De Dan www.reikishamanic.com

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

Bear at Swimming Hole, ©Rose De Dan www.reikishamanic.com

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

In Honor of Able Seacat Simon and Other Animal Heroes on Memorial Day

Able Seacat Simon http://www.knowyourcat.info/lib/seacatsimon.htm

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.

Manitou and the Molehill Gang

Manitou, Grass Tiger, ©2014 Rose De Dan

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

Manitou and the Earth Day Despacho Ceremony

Manitou in Grass ©2014 Rose De Dan www.reikishamanic.com

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

Guess Who Came to Dinner?

A Little Spritz Does the Trick for Poppy the Cat

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

My Diamond Kiya

Halloween Kiya: Glamour Shot ©2012 Rose De Dan www.reikishamanic.com

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
