Reiki is a Japanese form of energy healing, the word "Reiki" generaly being understood to mean "Universal Life Energy." When one's life energy is strong and balanced, there is no room for illness or stress to enter, so the Reiki practitioner acts as a channel for this universal energy to flow into and balance the client's energy centers, allow the release of energy blockages, and restore harmony to the whole system. The energy itself knows where to flow and how to help, for the highest good of the individual.
Along with my Reiki are woven a number of various other healing techniques I've learned, and that I am learning all the time.
Animals are also very receptive to Reiki, and I do work on pets as well as humans.

Shamanic Work/ Soul Retrieval
Shamanic cultures believe that when we experience a trauma, part of us leaves to avoid the full brunt of the pain, which is a great self protection mechanism, but sometimes those parts don't find their way back on their own. This "soul loss" can be caused by such events as abuse, accidents, or even divorce.
Soul retrieval can reunite us with those missing parts, returning to us that lost essense and vitality, and the sense of wholeness that is every person's birthright.
Symptoms of soul loss include:
- Chronic Depression
- Immune deficiency problems
- Feeling like "I've never been myself since ___"
If you'd like to know more about Soul Retrieval and how it may help you, please read the following article written by Sandra Ingerman, who taught me: http://www.sandraingerman.com/soulretrieval.html
VARIATIONS -- With in Soul Retrieval there are different variations and applications...
Animals -- Animals, particularly those that live closest to humans, can experience many of the same symptoms of soul loss that we do, particularly in the cases of abused and/or rescue animals, and can benefit from Soul Retrieval much the same as we do.
Soul Remembering -- In the same way a soul piece is retrieved, by traveling back to the point just before your birth (there is no time in 'non-ordinary' reality where the shamanic journey takes place) and finding out what your dream for this life was -- the pure intention of why you were born, before human conditioning and societal expectations covered it -- this original purpose can be returned to you.
Physical Body -- Shamans believe that every organ, system, and part of the human body has its own soul. So it is possible to retrieve the soul of an ailing, or missing, body part to either help heal that part or make the person feel more whole despite, for example, a missing limb.
Land -- Every piece and parcel of land has it's own spirit or soul, and so too can experience soul loss. Therefore, so too can Soul Retrieval be performed to return the spirit of the land. This should, however, be done in an area (from multiple acres to a small garden plot) that is privately owned or can otherwise be stewarded and watched over in order to follow through on the reintegration of Spirit and Earth.
--includes main session (about 1 1/2 to 2 hours) and follow up 2 weeks later

Animal Spirit Card Readings
Every animal in Nature carries a unique energy and medicine, and by paying attention to that medicine we can heal and teach ourselves. The Medicine Cards deck is a set of divination cards created by Jamie Sams and David Carson, that utilizes the power of the animals. Each card carries an image of an animal, illustrated by Angela C. Werneke, and by seeing which animals show up in a spread of cards, and where they appear, brings different messages to the seeker.
I have always been drawn to and connected with the animal kingdom, so it feels natural to me that I would turn to them for answers. And as a shamanic practitioner, the cards are a leaping off point as I connect with the Spirit of each species to read the story they tell by how they relate in a given spread.
As an example of animal medicine with the cards pictured above:
Otter -- Otter carries the Divine Feminine, and is the epitome of the saying "Be like water." She is sensuality, and going with the flow, and remembering that life is meant to be fun and filled with play.
Badger -- Badger is aggressiveness -- not so much in a predatory manner but rather in the tenacity to get things done without being sidetracked or diverted by distractions. Badger is also the keeper of Herbal Lore and Earth Medicine.
Opossum -- Opossum, being the actor of the animal kingdom, usually tells of some sort of drama taking place. Her message is usually about stepping back and remembering that "life is a stage" and about not getting caught up in the acting.
