We rescued “Belle” from the wonderful shelter Homeward Bound in Middlebury, Vermont where I volunteer, about two and a half years ago. She had been surrendered in South Carolina and moved to our shelter in Vermont. She had only been in Vermont for about two days before I discovered her one Saturday while sharing Kathleen Prasad’s Let Animals Lead® method of Animal Reiki. By the following Friday, she had claimed our bed and hearts. The people at our shelter said, as she wiggled and wriggled on the way to our car, “bet she is going to get lots of Reiki!”; and she has. Her name was immediately changed to Addie and she was often referred to as Mrs. Wiggles in those early days.
She is still full of energy, but she no longer gets overexcited and she loves to cuddle. She is never far away while I do meditation and self-treatment. If I am on a zoom session with my teacher Kelly, she is always in the room and soaking up the vibe. I really don’t think my husband and I could have survived these past few months without her. I am truly grateful to have her and my Reiki practice in my life.
