My name is Heather O'Lear. I am a Reiki practitioner, animal communicator, photographer, SARA (Shelter Animal Reiki Association) member practitioner and HeARTs Speak artist member photographer. I use Reiki, animal communication and photography to provide inspiration, connection, love and healing and to bring depth and understanding to the relationships between humans and animals. I am passionate about animal rescue and advocacy and providing ways for humans to understand, learn from and connect deeper with animals.
Universal energy is available to all living things for healing on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels. I am passionate about creating and holding space for animals and humans to access Universal healing energy through Reiki. I believe there is a symbotic relationship between humans and animals that can be realized, expanded and healed with Reiki.
When I communicate with animals I am able to hear what they need and desire and help strengthen the relationship between them and their human companion, or even work through any challenges. I also offer animal transition doula services, which can help animal guardians make the best decisions to support their animal companions, as well as bring an overall greater sense of peace to all, during their transition. Amazing healing and bonding can occur through communicating with your animals! Animals have so much to teach us - I am grateful to be able to hear to what they have to say and help animal-human relationships.
I use photography to capture the essence of places, animals and people in ways that allow humans to connect and to expand how humans see, experience and relate to the world around them. I love to capture authentic moments of people, places, events, nature and animals, and especially the connections between humans and their animal companions!
I also use my skills as a volunteer photographer at animal shelters and rescues with the goal of capturing the unique and individual personality traits of animals so they can attract and connect with their future forever families.
"I was completely blown away by Heather’s reading! My father recently passed away and he and my dog, Bear, were inseparable. I could tell Bear was depressed and anxious because he didn’t understand what had happened to my dad. Admittedly, I was a bit of a skeptic but after a few minutes I was in shock. The things Heather received from Bear stopped me dead in my tracks. She spoke to things that she would never know and to things I had never mentioned to her. I saw a noticeable difference in Bear; she was able to calm him and he no longer stares at the door waiting for my dad. This didn’t just heal Bear, but it healed me as well. I’ve never felt so deeply affected or connected to something that I couldn’t see, but this left me in awe. This former skeptic will definitely be seeing Heather for more readings!"
"You have really helped me so much Heather. I can't thank you enough. It has been so comforting knowing he [her dog diagnosed with cancer] understands now. It has truly helped me. The first time you spoke with him and he wasn't in pain, but then today confirming it [him losing energy and being ready to release his physical body]. To be able to have that. . . I can't describe it. It's amazing and I am so grateful. And that he now understands what is going on. I know it's about him, but it is therapy for me too. To be able to verbalize and share my feelings and get that affirmation from others. It has been so sad, but instead of just being sad I have been able to really enjoy our time together."
Run free Brown Dog. You were fiercely loved. (March 6, 2021)
"I first heard about Heather when a mutual friend shared a post about her services for people during the passing of a beloved pet. It struck a chord with me because I had many questions and lingering guilt about the passing of my childhood cat. Although Peachy had passed more than a decade ago, I thought I would reach out to Heather to see if she could help me reconnect and to properly say goodbye. Not only was she able to do that, but she also helped me learn how I can personally continue to have a loving relationship with Peachy spiritually. Heather was exceptionally thoughtful and kind during every interaction we had together. I would highly recommend her services to anyone seeking help and peace of mind."
