Hannah Murray and I started collaborating at The Gentle Barn in Santa Clarita, CA back in 2020. I had been volunteering there since the year prior, and I also served on their Spiritual Council.
On my own I was transmitting light language, Reiki, and past life healing for the resident cows, chickens, horses, pigs, turkeys, goats, donkeys, and even an emu and a llama! The animals were all rescued, and some from extreme trauma. At the Barn they received many different healing techniques: sound bowl therapy, massage and acupuncture, energy healing and chiropractic.
As the animals experienced healing, the people around them did too. The Barn is open once a week to visitors, and throughout the week groups are allowed through. Students from under-privileged areas, neurodivergent adults, and the formerly incarcerated are just some of the people who have benefited from time with these animals.
Hannah was over the moon excited when I asked if she would like to join me on one of my volunteer days. She had always had a connection with horses, and it was her dream to play for them!
The music was well received! And as the animals became even more relaxed, I was able to provide even deeper levels of healing.
We even made a couple superfans - (King and Athena I mean YOU!)
It has been such a joy to connect with such beautiful (and human) souls during our time there! We have worked with animals who were grieving, in physical pain, and even those who were transitioning this life.
We invite you to check out some videos of our time there below!
As Braveheart's health declined Hannah and I provided several sessions for him. It was an honor to spend so much time with such a sweet soul!
Some animals prefer concertos. Some animals prefer a sustained note. Hannah played a long D and Addison couldn't resist!
Sundance was like a brother to Braveheart. After Braveheart transitioned Sundance lost his will to go on. I am so grateful Hannah and I were able to bring him some healing energy before he reconnected with his bestie in the Great Beyond!
Even the turkeys stop fighting and let themselves soak up all the healing!
Just like people need healing, the animals in our lives need it too! Animals are very sensitive to energy work and alternative healing methods. Along with their humans, they can benefit tremendously.
Animal Reiki can help calm traumatized pets, assist in post-op healing, shed light on behavioral issues, and boost the immune system for animals with cancer and other illnesses.
It is particularly powerful for rescue animals.
