My name is Heather O'Lear. I am a photographer, Reiki practitioner, animal communicator, 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.
