Why Choose me to Work with your Pet?

I have LOVED animals ever since I was a child and I used to imagine that one day I would save all the suffering animals in the world. The connection I feel to them is something that makes my heart feel full and just their presence in a room can make all your worries disappear. I have personally experienced the healing powers of these beautiful beings and all the lessons and wisdom they have to share.

With the passion for animals that I had starting at a young age you might think that I would have started this work ages ago. But the reality was, I stumbled through my early adult years having no clue what I wanted to do with my life. I bounced from one career to another, travelled the world, experienced life like there was no tomorrow and finally found a career some 15 years later that I thought at the time, “this is it”! It fuelled my soul and my heart because I was working to help children and families who were living in poverty around the world. It really connected and resonated with me as my travels have taken me to corners of the world where I meet people who literally have nothing. Not only was my career allowing me to make a difference in the world but I loved the people I was working with too! I wanted to be a part of changing the world in any way I could.

Unfortunately, while I was so focused on my career and helping others, I “forgot” about taking care of me. I went on sacrificing my own needs including the happiness of my own inner being. On and on I went continuing to ignore the voice inside that wanted me to slow down. I kept pushing myself, my life, and everyone apart of it. I had no idea that I was about to have my world shook up because I wasn’t “listening”. I knew Thomas wasn’t well but I kept hoping for the best, kept trying new things but my 17 year old cat had been sick for a couple months already and in my heart I knew it was time to let him go. I was devastated and heartbroken. It wasn’t an easy decision but I finally mustered up the courage 5 months after his passing, to “listen” to my inner being that was now “screaming” at me to follow my life’s purpose. I left my role as a Regional manager, followed my heart and stumbled blindly onto the path of Reiki. Fortunately, I wasn’t alone and I had a helper guide the way through this very emotional time in my life.

His name is Thomas Fosty and half the time he acted like a dog rather than a cat. He liked to bite your toes if you left them sticking out of the blankets….. Imagine being woken up by a cat biting your big toe! He would run away so fast and I swear he was laughing. He meant the world to me. ;0) He passed away in my arms on March. 24, 2013. He was 17 years old and he was my main man.

Anyone who has pets or who has experienced a loss understands how devastating these types of experiences can be. That being said, everything happens for a reason, at the time it’s meant to happen and no matter how hard you try to fight it, there are times when it’s no longer your choice. I started looking at more alternative options for Thomas when I was told there was nothing more that could be done for him. This was when I “stumbled” upon Reiki but by this time events had already happened that I no longer had the power to change.

Looking back I know Thomas was working his magic. A couple of months after we said our goodbyes everything started to fall into place. I was guided towards the people who helped me grow on my spiritual path. This was the beginning of what I am doing today.

This is a little bit about me and how Reiki came into my life. I can’t tell you how much Reiki has helped me grow. The focus has shifted from everything around me to my inner being and allowing myself to find balance in my life. Learning to listen to the little voice inside, saying yes when it feels right and no when it doesn’t has all helped me to connect to my purpose and feel happiness in my heart. I hope that for those of you who try Reiki will love it as much as I do. I look forward to assisting you or your pet on your healing journey!

Kind Words from Clients

I have been working with dogs for quite a number of years. Last year we had some issues arise with our elkhound that the vets could not figure out. We were looking at putting him down if things did not improve. As a “last effort” I contacted Tamara and asked if she could do some reiki on him. A bit skeptical but I had to try. To my surprise immediately following the reiki session I saw huge changes in Gunnar. He was coming around quite quickly. We began to see a steady improvement in him. Tamara also did some communication with him Gunnar and without knowing Gunnar or really anything about our lives she was bang on with the information that came through. We are now a year later and we have our boy healthy and happy as ever. I truly feel that her combination of tree essence, reiki and communication saved his life. I can’t thank her enough for all she did for him. 

Fast forward a year to another dog that I had come into foster care with me. Immediately I contacted Tamara to see if she could help me help this young dog. Once again Tamara was bang on with what this young dog needed. She is absolutely amazing.

I had the good fortune to find Tamara’s card at the vet the day I found out my 9 1/2 year pup was full of cancer. It was quite a devastating day and I was feeling helpless and sad beyond sad. As I waited for the invoice to be prepared I was sitting beside the business cards advertising pet-related services. There was Tamara’s card for pet reiki. I had had reiki for myself some years ago and loved it and thought it might be a very good thing to provide some comfort to my poor dog. Tamara was amazing, she came over and he responded very well to the reiki. We did a few sessions until he passed away. And afterwards, we did a few sessions with my kitty because she was missing her bud. My kitty is now almost 18 years old and we do distance reiki with Tamara. Kitty loves it and tells Tamara sweet stories during the reiki. It’s very cute and I’m always amazed at the notes that come back from Tamara describing the session. They are spot on with what I am observing in my kitty. I have another dog now too, and he is a reiki sponge. He LOVES it! He knows when the kitty is having reiki and settles in around her to enjoy the session too. He has had his own sessions since he was a puppy and I will continue to work with Tamara throughout his life. I have had reiki with Tamara too, and it is wonderful. All in all, Tamara is one of my go to people in caring for my pup and kitty and for receiving a special treat for myself.
