Invoking my encyclopedic memory to tell you the beginning of this story…
A normal night at one of our main foster homes. Owner of said foster home completed her own evening routine and shut the lights to head to bed. Then the doorbell rang. With trepidation, she opened the door. On the porch, a small plastic carrier and a note. Inside the carrier, two small rabbits, one black and white, one brown and white. As our addresses are not made public in any capacity, this was no coincidental abandonment.
These two rabbits were aptly named Ring (black and white) and Run (brown and white). Both small and super lovable.
We received a heartbreaking email from Run’s mom earlier this weekend. Being an attentive, loving mom, she noticed that he was having some trouble with one of his paws and his balance. She immediately brought him to his veterinarian, where he had recently been for a check-up and blood work (all was fine at that previous appointment). X-rays and tests illuminated the shocking news—Run has developed cancer, including a large mass that is pushing on his spine, causing the mobility and balance issues.
The size and intensity of the mass leave few western medicine alternatives that are safe for dear Run. And his family is devastated. Without a second thought, I brought Run Bun, as his mom affectionately calls him, into my distance Reiki meditation.
Distance Reiki and the Distant Healing Symbol is used to send Reiki energy over distance and time to anyone and to anything. This morning, before sitting down to write, I sat with a picture of Run that Debbie shared with me, put my most powerful mediation oil, Idaho Balsam Fir, on my palms and called on my angels, my guides and all healing energies to encircle Run with love, light and peace.
I’m sharing Run’s story with you today so you can send him healing vibes too. Send peace to his family. Send all the health and hoppiness in the world to dear little Run Bun.
