About Linda Crabtree


My “Circle of Peace” Logo

 

My “Circle of Peace” Logo

My logo reflects who I am and what I am about. I am Osage Indian. To the American Indians, a circle is a powerful symbol that represents unity and harmony. Harmony in life leads to peace, balance, and well-being, inside and out. The colors black, white, yellow and red are sacred colors to the Osage People. Feathers and beads grace the circle. The sun and moon represent yin and yang, two fundamental principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Spider and Hawk are my animal guides. The white horse is Czammy. The Paint is Ka.Wa. The cat represents all the cats I’ve known and loved. The dog is Del, my dog of 14 years, who crossed over to the heavens in 2013. They have all been my teachers and companions throughout my circle of life. The human in the logo is me. My t-shirt is purple which represents connection to spirit.



Linda gives Czammy a Reiki session

 

Czammy, My Inspirationpic-heart-35

This is the story of Czammy, my first horse.

In this picture, I'm offering Reiki to Czammy in a large, open field  with the rest of his herd grazing nearby. He is happy and content, and chooses to hang out with the Reiki energy. Czammy is the reason that I studied and practiced to become a Reiki Practitioner/Teacher and offer Reiki not only to equines, but to all animals, and to teach Reiki to humans so that they can offer this healing energy to the animals in their circles of life.
