How We Believe Reiki Works

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. Likewise, Reiki is also energy with intelligence.

Class includes both in-class theory (with Level 2  manual) and hands-on practice.

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, animals and plants with the ancient 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 and help you embrace positive change.

Within weeks and months, most students find that they feel in better control of their lives, become more intuitive and therefore feel a stronger sense of purpose, no matter what their background or career goals are. Although these states of consciousness are usually not achieved overnight, Reiki Level 1 can help each individual become a better 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, additional attunements bring benefit in many ways.

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

“Toolkit for Connection” Workshop October 3, 2015




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.
Call Nancy today for an appointment 406-756-2327

Open House! 5-30-2015

Energy, intent, Spa day for horses and humans. It is raining pretty hard and thundering as well.
The Drum is made by the Drum Brothers. The resonance is amazing and this drum will be a fun addition to campfires, etc.
From Brenda – who works out of my arena too and did a demonstration. “Feeling blessed to have had such a great turn out for the Open House for Horse Sense Healing and the Greater Good Ranch! We had around 30 people throughout the afternoon join us! Thank you to you all! Hearts were touched, horses were treated to some TLC & some fun was had! The food from the Kila Pub was amazing and the wine from Glacier Sun Winery was fabulous!”

Animal Communication Study Group 5-12-15

Study Group for Anna Twinney – Reach Out To Horses – Animal Communication – The Journey Within.

 View the links and listen to the audio files.

Welcome to the Anna Twinney Reach out to horses – Animal Communication study group.

I’ve been following Anna Twinneys work  for a year and a half. What attracted me to her focus and work was her attention to detail , experience, and ability to verbalize and process deep thoughts.  Annas insight goes beyond any work that I’ve studied.  the focus of her work especially resonates with where I’m at in my life today. Animals  have always been an important part of my life we’ve always communicated, Annas ideas and skills have taken my vision to the next level.

The first conference call that we had on May 6 and May 12 we discussed how to get started in the study group -the intent and the purpose. 

The purpose of this group is to study the information, take action on the exercises from animal communication the journey within. 

My intent with this online or in person study group is personal growth –  everyday issues like work or behavior problems, care, feeding, end-of-life, lost pets . Pretty tough issues to discuss. Explore the different tips and techniques and watch DVDs and practice the techniques with others 

The benefits of the study group are for support, To Share tips and techniques, breakthroughs, to support each other when we’re stuck, and get help in communicating with our own animals. apparently it’s really difficult to communicate with our own animals I’ve experienced that myself. It would be really helpful to have each other as mentors and coaches. 

I set up a call site and wall at free conference I’ve added some links and set up some auto audio recordings that I thought were pertinent to getting started.

I posted two examples of Anna’s audio DVDs can you listen to on the conference call wall

AT evolution – comes from Anna’s introduction to evolution of horsemanship it’s a 53 minutes – Her story that Anna shares with us is her way of measuring the evolution in her life and her life choices. She pauses after every major achievement with the question “And what if I’d stayed there- with that way of thinking or working” What she has achieved in personal growth today is far beyond each phase.  I was so inspired that I did this exercise of my life as well. It really helped to clarify my vision of moving forward from where I’m at. 

The example of I H H is taken from the webinar insights into holistic Horsemanship it was the first question and answer in section 2. It was a significant topic that she took on it was tough question enter Answer shows just how much she processes and thoroughly discusses different issues and many sides to those issues. That’s why I really like her work. 

Other resources – Anna has 6 DVD horsemanship series,
Download audio – insights into holistic horsemanship
Webinar – evolution in horsemanship
Webinar – animal communication reawaken your inner voice
9 CD set – animal communications The real deal
and so much more… See

I think the important place to start is the newly out ‘animal communication – the journey within’ – purchase on website-  two DVD set it’s well worth the $49 and there are a lot of exercises and clarifications that Anna presents that I have not heard on any of her other material . 

The next date for the group to meet will be on May 21 . We will watch the DVD  and we’ll get started on the exercises. We’ll also share some of the tools and modalities that a couple of us that have been working with for a while and have had some pretty great experiences with, that we use in order to get clearer answers since we don’t have the ability that Anna has at this point. or call 406-756-2327.
