Hygge—Canadian Style!

Coziness of the Soul. Doesn’t that sound marvelous? Hygge (pronounced HOO-gah) is the Danish art of creating coziness of the soul—things that make you feel good.

As the hours of daylight decrease, it’s the perfect time to bring coziness into our lives. What images come to your mind with the words “coziness of the soul”?

Allow me to add a few images to your thoughts…

  • candles
  • a soft, warm blanket
  • comfy wool socks
  • a good book
  • a fireplace
  • a warm drink
  • a perfect spot to watch the snow fall
  • comfy clothes
  • a get-together with family and friends
  • delicious, pleasure food—something decadent, or hearty and warming
  • gratitude—feeling thankful for the little things
  • fresh smell of pine or wood
  • soft music
  • a hot bath
  • crafts—knitting, coloring, crocheting…
  • board games, card games, puzzles…
  • making something by hand
  • a Reiki treatment! 🙂

The Danish have a great idea. I encourage you to bring Hygge—Canadian Style into your life. Happy Winter to my dear family and friends!

My Visit to the Animal Shelter

I spent the morning at our local animal shelter sharing Reiki with a few of the animals. Let me introduce Maggie, a sweet 9 year old chihuahua. As you can see in the pictures, she started out a little tense, then relaxed and enjoyed Reiki very much. I also spent some time with a beautiful cat named PJ, and an awesome big cat named Max.

If you are a Reiki Practitioner, and enjoy animals, I urge you to go to your nearest animal shelter and share Reiki with the animals. Please consider it. Sharing Reiki with animals at the shelter fills your heart and the animal’s heart with SO much love. It’s a beautiful experience.

Did You Know…? Animals Love Reiki Too!

Dog and Cat photoI’ve been giving my animals Reiki treatments since I first learned Reiki. I quickly discovered, as I was doing treatments on myself and other people, my pets could sense Reiki energy and they would gather around and relax. They seemed to know this was something they needed and wanted.

I am headed to our local animal shelter today (Claresholm Animal Rescue Society: CAReS) to give a few treatments to cats and dogs there. I can tell which animals are new to Reiki, because they sniff my hands, then look elsewhere as to where this energy could be coming from, and quickly settle right in front of my hands as they understand this is good for them.

Do you have any pets that could benefit from a Reiki Treatment? Contact me, I would love to talk with you. 🙂

Stay tuned…
I will be posting pictures from my visit to the shelter. 🙂

High-Time for a Story

Hello my dear friends, how is everyone doing after a busy summer? Today (and always), I’m excited about books. My two girls and I LOVE books. We are very big readers, and are always having a conversation about a book (or books) we’re reading. Lately I’ve been reading/studying mostly non-fiction…animal communication, energy healing, medical intuition, meditation, and the list goes on. My girls have finally won their campaign to get me to read a fiction book. I’m loving it. It’s a historical fiction, one of my favorite genres. I forgot what it was like to get lost in a book! Oh it’s so much fun! I leave the worries of my day and enter a wonderful story. As it’s getting cooler outside, and the daylight hours are shorter, we also tend to watch a few more movies too. This past weekend we pulled out The Sound of Music—it’s such a timeless classic. The songs are still going through my head. I encourage you all to remember something that helps you to set aside the worries of the day, just for a little while. Relax, jump in, and absorb a wonderful story. It feels so good! What types of books do you enjoy? What movies? Is it time to make some popcorn and grab a cozy blanket and enjoy a wonderful story? I would say it’s high-time! 🙂 Enjoy your day.    ~Tracy
