How We Believe Reiki Works

  • Reiki is energy with intelligence and is used succcessfully in hospitals as well as being measured by HeartMath Institute
  • Reiki is omnipresent-present everywhere at the same time.
  • Reiki is omnipotent-absolute and infinite power.
  • Reiki is omniscient-infinite wisdom and knowledge.

The universal life force connects all living things together like a vast ocean. As droplets in this ocean we are communicating with and are connected to, all other droplets in this ocean on an unconscious level. Similarly, every cell in the human body has its own individual position and responsibility. However, each cell is also unequivocally connected to and is unconsciously communicating with all the other fifty-trillion cells in the body. Deepak Chopra, in his book Quantum Healing also talks about how the entire universe is connected.

He explains how particles that are separated by immense distances of time and space know what one another are doing. When an electron for example jumps into a new orbit on the outside of an atom, the anti-electron (positron) paired with it must also react no matter where it lives in the universe. Each particle in our universe has an intelligence that communicates across time and space.

Scientists studying the behaviour of monkeys on the coast of Japan noticed one day a particular monkey had begun dipping his sweet potatoes into salt water before eating them. Shortly afterwards they found all the monkeys within the colony were also dipping their potatoes into salt water.The scientist assumed the monkeys were just copying each other until they discovered monkeys in other parts of the world had begun dipping their potatoes into salt water also. The monkeys were communicating through an unknown intelligence across time and space. The scientists labelled this intelligent communication Morphic Resonance.

Interestingly another study found when giraffes began causing serious damage to trees by eating more of the tree than normal, the trees responded by increasing the amount of tannin in their leaves. This defensive action made the leaves too bitter for the giraffes to eat. Scientists discovered the trees were communicating with gases — an energy with intelligence.

  • Level 1 attunement
  • The power symbol, energy centers and hand positions

Healing is simply attempting to do more of those things that bring Joy and fewer of those things that bring pain. ~ O. Carl Simonton 

Learn how to balance, replenish and heal yourself, your loved ones and animals with the traditional Japanese healing art of Reiki Level 1. Reiki is ideal for anyone interested in learning more about energy work, how it works and the benefits.  While Kirlian Photography allows us to see energy, we will learn to recognize, feel and channel the energy for the highest good. Reiki can be used to enrich your everyday life, relationships and help you embrace positive change. Receive Reiki, insight, empower, pass on to others

Within days and months of practice, people find they feel in better control of their lives, become more intuitive and feel a stronger sense of purpose, no matter what their background or career goals are. Although these awarenesses of consciousness are usually not achieved overnight, Reiki Level 1 can help each individual become a healthier ‘body of light and love’, shedding negativity and lower vibrations that often prevent us from achieving these states.

All Reiki classes are kept small to keep individual attention at a maximum. Students are encouraged to explore their individual strengths, and each individual’s path and needs will be honored and respected. Classes are taught in a very respectful manner, keeping Reiki a sacred healing art. Class includes both in-class theory (with manual) and hands-on practice.

Reiki is transferred to the student by the Reiki Master during an attunement process. This process opens the crown, heart, and palm energy centers in the body and creates a special link between the student and the Reiki source.

The Reiki attunement is a powerful experience. Once you have received a Reiki attunement, you will have Reiki for the remainder of your life. While one attunement is all you need for each level, re-attunements bring benefit in many ways.

Pre-requisite: Must have received a full Reiki treatment within the last few years. Call Nancy for a session if you need to meet this requirement 406-756-2327.

Cost: $125 (Includes Certificate)
Class Option 1: Saturday December 5, 10 am – 4 pm
Option 2: Wednesday December 2 & 9, 6:30 -9:30 pm

“Toolkit for Connection” Workshop October 3, 2015

“TOOLKIT FOR EQUINE CONNECTION” WORKSHOP
OCTOBER 3, 2015 11-3

Fill your toolbox with new skills and deepen your partnership with your horse! Come join us for an amazing day with your horse or work with one of mine!

“What am I seeing or not seeing?” 

In this workshop we’ll explore and study horses innate characteristics in terms of mental, emotional and physical wellness through a series of trials and games. We’ll set up events, allow the horse to respond and we’ll learn how to shape the behavior we want – step by step through clicker training and other techniques. We’ll learn to ask better questions! Through this discovery we’ll evaluate the level of communication, contentment, tension or apprehension, and determine the horses level of confidence and trust. For the horse who constantly moves through to the horse who won’t move when asked, we’ll work with a common language to help you both have more fun together!

The best thing for partnership with your horse is to teach them to relax and release tension!

We’ll also cover bodywork, evaluation tips and techniques for discovering physical boundaries, braces, and discomfort in order to increase the horses ability to interact and offer a ‘try’.

We’ll end by learning a hands on bodywork maintenance technique that includes lymphatic drainage for runny eyes. This powerful energywork is sure to enhance communication and connection!

We’ll address issues such as:

  • “What can I do with my horse when it’s too icy or cold to ride?”
  • “My horses tail moves just a bit and the skin twitches yet I don’t see any flies around. “
  • “My horse keeps walking, can’t stand still. Stops but then walks on or shoulders into me, steps on my foot…”
  • “My horse won’t allow me to touch her ears, poll, mouth, girth area…”
  • “My horse seems frozen – unresponsive yet she knows what I’m asking and knows how to _____.”
  • “All of a sudden – with no warning…”

Much of the work I do with horses begins with connection and balance to recognize and release tension. Mental, emotional, physical tension, boundaries, dullness, hyperactivity and lack of trust can cause all the above and more which results in unease. Even if we think our horse is relaxed and perfect, there are things we can do to check in to their wellbeing and gain a deeper connection.

Nancy Horne has intently studied horsemanship and related modalities since 2001 and has an innate sense of understanding when connecting with horses. Nancy is a technical thinker but also hands on and is certified as an equine massage practitioner, certified in acupressure and essential oils, performs energy work as a Reiki Master, and has completed Integrated Equine Performance Bodywork – AKA- the Masterson Method training through the 5 day Advanced workshop.

Reinvent the Spark: Remember when…

“If not now, when?”

Reinvent the Spark: Remember when…

  • Your heart was full and totally connected to horses?
  • Your daughter or son spent all their time with horses but now they’ve moved on to adult life

and now?…

  • You feed, care for but worry the horse is not ‘being used’ and the horse is simply a pasture ornament?
  • You feel disconnected, can’t communicate or don’t know how to spend time together at this juncture in life?

Now is a good time to reinvent and rekindle your passion!  There is so much more to horses than simply riding…

Bring your horse here or I’ll visit you.

We will evaluate your combined dynamics, explore the needs and desires for interaction and establish the ability to communicate with each other where you both are in your journey now.

I’ll share with you some ‘connection bodywork’ techniques that enhance emotional, physical, spiritual balance.

I’ll share tools to establish a deeper relationship between you both, to recognize the smallest of responses and tips to interpret their meaning.

I’ll guide the plan for moving forward with enriching activities for sharing time, connecting and ultimately discovering – within yourself – a deep and rich inner peace.

This horse is (not) a bucker! Look for the magic and you will find it

This is stated many ways for people – we are not our actions ‘what we do’, we are not ‘how we react’… Yet this is how we describe animals, and it is only one tiny piece of their life. A change can be made so the behavior can be a thing of the past.

The beautiful horse I met last night touched my heart. A horse that is a reactive introvert who is born into the world of a sport he is not suited for – mentally, emotionally, physically – will react. The reaction may be small at first – or it may be huge, depending on his desire to be heard. Regardless, the reaction is based on an opinion that the horse has on how we are with him – how we are using him, using his body, controlling his life.

If a horse is being asked to interact and he isn’t especially keen on humans, he is going to put any obstacle available between himself and the human. If he is in a paddock with foals – that is the obstacle he will put between himself and the invader. He is not a wimp because he hides behind a foal. That is the only tool he has and he is using it wisely to his advantage. It was clear by the catching dance the level of interest or curiosity he had which was not so much. I could have gone up and haltered him immediately – that is what most people do. I don’t often halter a horse if they choose to stay with me after our connection. I want the feedback of what allows them to stay and what makes them leave. But what if I’d stopped there – walked away before connection – having given him only that much time? Instead of walking away I asked for connection, I asked for tolerance, patience and to accept my touch. I got all those things – hopefully not only because he was haltered (not by me). We worked, tested boundrys, changed his mind about people. A lot changed not only with him but the two foals as well. Funny how good energy ripples through a herd.

When faced with avoidance, what if the human approaches with a polite ask and genuine heart felt  interest? What if the human gives him time to decide if there might be something in this connection should he choose to allow himself to be approached and touched? This is where the magic happens – when we combine our energy into interaction that is agreeable to us both. It is about exploring each others openness, level of trust and interest in what we both have to offer. Humans easily share themselves with other humans equally. How often do we share ourselves with other species in a mutual relationship? When we allow ourselves to be vulnerable and open and we seek to find each others gifts – that is when we understand ‘what this horse is’ – or more accurately – ‘who’ this horse is in his heart and what he is capable of. From that moment on – he is no longer whatever he’s been called.

All too often we ‘size up’ people, horses, dogs based on how they react in given situations. What often goes unheeded is their response to our energy – combined with the surroundings, their energy and what is being asked or expected in a given situation. When we approach we have expectations, questions, an attitude, thoughts, we project energy… Others see us as interesting, overwhelming, self absorbed, controlling or maybe open to connect.

What if – from birth – we allowed and nurtured this connection? What if we allowed everyone to seek and find what works for them? While it’s great to  breed for bloodlines, sport and to educate throughout ones life – it is also imperative to allow other outlets for abilities that don’t fit in the mainstream flowchart.

I believe it is time to intenionally allow other species to ‘be’. I believe there has to be a place for all to live and thrive on this planet outside of our control. Horses can take care of themselves as long as they can find food and water which is provided by the earth, not by humanity. We all need a place to go when we don’t fit in where we are at. Just my two cents worth…
