Little Black Kitty Synchronicity

This story originally happened in September, I just haven’t had time to post it until now.

Oh my gosh, what a day! Saw a post this morning at 9:30 a.m. on NextDoor where a walker reported hearing kittens crying last evening. She tried to rescue the two little black kittens she saw, but they ran away. She …Continue reading

Animals Are So Aware of Energy

Animals are so aware of energy. Recently I was telling my hair stylist about the anecdotes people have shared about their animals who listen to my monthly Storytelling for Animals and People which includes Reiki and shamanic energy as well as animal communication. How one cat family kept requesting replays of the audio to soothe the …Continue reading

Manitou and the Mole Caper

I was hard at work on the Woodland Park Zoo photos for students of Listening to Zoo Animal Ambassadors when I heard the unique cry that my cat Manitou uses to tell me that he is at the back door and has a “present” for me.

Answering his call I discovered that he had killed a mole. …Continue reading

Turning Lost into Found: ReikiShamanic tips for missing pets

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

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

Saying Farewell to Cougar

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

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

Purrfect Pumpkin Pie and Other Holiday Capers with Dog and Cat

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

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, 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?

Stray Cat Manitou ©Rose De Dan www.reikishamanic.com

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

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
