On this, the eve of the two year anniversary of my dear friend's passing, I'm re-posting the story I wrote about her, about us, the day after she left this mortal coil. Before you read this, please call or text that one person you've been meaning to reach out to. Take that time. Even if… Continue reading Two Years Gone
I drove to Brooklyn and back, all by myself. I brought my passport, just in case they checked at the border and gave some cute stamp. But enough about me—this is about Maddie and Teddy. Several weeks ago, Maddie developed an abscess on the bottom of her back paw. Maddie and Teddy’s mom sought immediate… Continue reading Maddie and Teddy
I have not underlined this much in a book since graduate school. Bright Spirit, the spiritual book club that I co-host with Dina of Crystalicious NYC, studied Rising Strong by Brené Brown as our most recent pick. This book quickly became a part of my soul. I, too, struggle with vulnerability. I was the girl… Continue reading So Strong
The Catnip and Carrots waiting room is like Cheers for our rabbit rescue family. Anytime you walk through those doors and sit on those benches, you are bound to meet someone who knows your name, even if it’s just from interaction in our incredibly supportive online community. An afternoon in July of 2014, I sat… Continue reading Ella and Monkey

I’ve been holding back from truly stepping into a component of this work and of my personal development because there is a piece… Continue reading Missing Piece
Still trying to get things back together here at headquarters... So enjoy a throwback post from this time last year... How?
In late June 2014, I wrote a note in my phone of three simple “I am” statements to set the tone for my summer. Pushing aside the millions of things to get done and ways to make two months off from the day job count, I set these “I am” statements at the core of… Continue reading Retreat Yourself
I had the honor of working with Topher, his brother Walter and their sister Nora last week. Topher and Walter are friendly, active dogs and Nora is a beautiful kitty. Their mom invited me over specifically to work with Topher but Reiki energy does not discriminate; it goes and flows wherever it is welcome and… Continue reading Topher & Co.
“They” say the energy goes where it needs to go—distance and time are not limitations, unless you treat them that way. I’ve done my share of Distance Reiki sessions and I often “channel” furbabies from afar, but last weekend was my first official leap around the world: a Reiki session with a doggy in Australia!… Continue reading Amira
