Cat Blessings and Happy New Year 2014 from Wild Reiki and Shamanic Healing

“What a lovely despacho ceremony with Rose Dan of Wild Reiki and Shamanic Healing. I feel so much better, ready for 2014 and excited (no, really) to see what the new year will bring.
—Mary Pendleton, Des Moines, WA

Every ceremony should include laughter and our 2014 New Year’s shamanic ayni despacho definitely did when recent hobo cat Manitou (see Guess Who Came to Dinner?) decided that he should personally bless the despacho paper by lying on it! And he was not easily convinced to leave that lovely energy, either.

Perhaps I should have titled this post “Guess Who’s Lying in the Despacho?”

May your New Year and that of your animal companions be filled with love, light, laughter, and lots of fun and affection!
