Testimonials for Instructors:
"Eden's gentle nature and compassionate spirit come through in all she does! Animals are drawn to her sweet energy for Reiki, and her insightful comments made for great discussions in our animal Reiki class."
"I have found Eden Koljord the finest of animal communicators. Her energy fills the room, and she was a loving magnet to my precious dog. I could witness the communication between my dog's eyes and Eden’s."
Associate Minister, Mile Hi Church
"Eden, it has been such a pleasure to work with you, and to help you capture the essence of what you offer to your clients. Your compassion, intuition and love for people and their animals flows from your heart in such an inspiring way. Thank you for sharing your special gifts with the world...it is my honor and my pleasure to have you as a colleague, and I am looking forward to connecting with you for years to come!"
"I have found Eden to be thorough, professional, warm, and insightful with her communications and connections. Her inspired path of support for animals and their people will be a blessing for clients who engage her services."
Founder, Animal Spirit Healing
& Education® Network
"This is a reference letter to confirm that Eden Koljord is an excellent energy medicine and energy psychology practitioner who has trained with me both in the classroom and in the field with animals. In addition, she has taken her own initiative and time to become the best practitioner she can be and pursued advanced training with me whenever possible. Eden is great with animals, and she takes her work and clients quite seriously, which is an admirable quality in Eden and her work. Moreover, Eden has worked with my own dog companion, and both my dog and I were quite impressed with her work and her care. Any animal would be blessed to work with Eden."
Dr. Sierra Levy
Testimonials for Animals:
"Eden is a very compassionate and sensitive animal communicator. She is completely pure hearted, sincere, and has the highest intentions. She works to seek out knowledge and understanding with gifted teachers and healers of animals and humans, and conscientiously absorbs their teaching. Animals are magnetically drawn to her. She helped me reconnect with a beloved cat, Tokatee, who had passed on. She helped me resolve the unwarranted feelings of guilt I still held concerning his passing. It brought me deep relief. It restored my relationship with him. She understood the kind of bond that I have with him. She was deeply respectful of my feelings about Tokatee and honored them as sacred.
She also helped me when another cat, Griselda Durga Lakshmi (Gris for short), was ill. She facilitated as I brought forth for Gris a month of resplendent, glowing health before her passing. It was beautiful to see Gris as radiant as a princess. I was very impressed that Eden's counsel, as I worked to heal Gris, was impeccably respectful of the veterinarian with whom I also chose to work. There was no conflict with the naturopathic modality of the vet and Eden, who guided me with grounded, practical action, as well as the spiritual dimension. I highly recommend Eden without reservation."
"I know Tica enjoyed her time with you, Eden. What a wonderful connection you have with animals - it is beautiful to witness. You drew each other to yourselves, that was evident. It is a connection on a deep level. Thank you for everything. Love and blessings."
"One of my dogs, Nike (a two-year-old Chihuahua Miniature Pinscher mix), sustained a fractured left front leg in his prior home with small children. This injury required two surgeries. In addition, he spent 7.5 months in a kennel at the Max Fund (a rescue facility) where he was well cared for. The bones healed and left the leg shorter than the other legs. In addition, ligaments in the leg are non-supporting for life. He wears a brace(OrthoPets) to support his ligaments along with a lift to make up for the loss of length in the leg. The brace is a lifelong commitment to prevent further serious damage and to support the leg. Otherwise, he could sustain more fractures and significant pain.
I ran into a problem with Nike on two levels: he decided he didn't want to wear his brace, and was attempting to bite me when I approached him regarding his brace. As I mentioned, it is not an option for him to not wear the brace. Further, if he bit me or anyone else, I may have to return him to the Max Fund where he would, in all probability, live the rest of his life in a kennel.
A further concern was Nike and his brother, Brode (a Yorkiepoo), were copying each other in doing their "business" in the house instead of outside. Nike never learned this while living in a kennel, and now in our home, it is important for him to relieve himself outside.
Eden was absolutely wonderful and both dogs loved her. She did Reiki on Nike as she was talking with us. Nike yawned in his relaxation. We explained to him the danger of not wearing the brace, and why it is so very important. He told her he didn't like the way I was applying his brace. He demonstrated how he was willing to have the brace applied, and I complied. We spoke of Nike and Brode doing their "business" outside.
While Eden was here, I put Nike's brace on him without any difficulty. Then, the four of us enjoyed a walk together. Since Eden's visit, Nike and Brode have both done their "business" outside. I remind Nike about his agreements with the brace. To say that I am so very pleased with the gentle guiding energy and communication of Eden would be a major understatement. My dogs and I let go of a lot of stress just by acknowledging it and coming to terms together.
My dogs and I will be moving into our new home soon, and I am going to have Eden visit with us there. I hope each of you take an opportunity to have Eden meet with your pets, so harmony prevails."

"The instant the door opened, Kitty and Eden looked at each other and connected. Eden shared things about Kitty that I had a vague awareness of, and other things which I had no awareness of at all. As a result, I realized how ethereal, spiritual, and intelligent my Kitty was. Yes, I loved him dearly, but after the experience with Eden, I began to honor him for the outstanding feline that he was.
You will note that I am using the past tense, because Eden commented that Kitty was not "quite right." The next day, I took him to a homeopathic vet I found using her website (www.ahvma.org) and learned that Kitty had pancreatic cancer.
Thank goodness I learned all I did about Kitty before he was humanely euthanized. Having an animal companion is akin to having another person living with you. Every person should have an Animal Communicator with the qualifications and experience that Eden has to let you know the personality, character, and thoughts your animal companion(s) have about living with you."
"I was amazed how my dogs reacted to Eden. They were so calm like I have never seen before especially for someone new visiting. She definitely had a connection with both my dogs. You could tell Sadie was listening to her, and she definitely had an energy shift. I would highly recommend Eden having a visit with your dogs, and I am going to have her back for another chat soon."
"I would like to tell you about my experience with Eden and animal communication. First, I have to admit that I struggle with skepticism, having lived my entire life in the scientific and medical realm. I am open to alternate realities, but I always evaluate where on the scale of “real deal” or authentic to scam artist, even fraudulent, the healer is. I have worked with a number of alternative healers. Eden is one of the very few that I would deem completely authentic, credible, and honest.
Everything Eden said “clicked” or fit with my own perceptions and intuition about the questions that I had about Lucy, such as how to alleviate her separation anxiety and her finicky eating. For example, often the only way she would eat would be for me to hand feed her. Even then, sometimes, she wouldn’t eat. I thought she simply didn’t enjoy eating. Eden “saw” her eating in a specific spot, out of a specific feeding dish, and a specific food. I had expensive, high quality canned dog food that I threw in the garbage in favor of what Lucy showed her. She ate every bite, out of her bowl, no hand feeding! And she ate with enthusiasm, as Eden told me “she likes to eat, but she kind of wrinkles up her nose when she thinks about eating the canned and dry food that she is currently being fed.”
I have a peace of mind with Lucy now that I haven’t had since I adopted her four months ago. I truly believe that Eden connected with her and that Lucy and I, through Eden, were able to communicate and connect deeply. Eden told me “you can learn to do this, yourself. You can communicate with your pets.” She gave me information on a workshop with Penelope Smith. So, with Eden, yes, she will do a reading on your animal companion, but she will also help you communicate and connect on a deeper level and in your daily lives together. I am deeply grateful to Eden and Spirit who brought us together."

"Without any reservations I highly recommend Eden, if you want to understand your horse better, she is amazing."
"Eden is an intuitive and skilled communicator. Her conversation with my wonderful cat, Toby, provided more insight than I could have ever imagined, rising to a spirit level. Toby responded to Eden’s loving Reiki touch with intense purring and deep relaxation. On a practical note, Eden’s discussion of a destructive behavior with Toby led to the elimination of that problem. Thank you Eden, for sharing your amazing talent."
"Eden conducted two distance healing sessions with our dog Sadie and I noticed an immediate difference following her first session. Prior to that first session, Sadie whined. Following that first session, she stopped whining. The change was remarkable and much appreciated! I also attribute Sadie's understanding of "cooperation" and "being a good neighbor" to her sessions with Eden. When I use the word cooperate, you can see the wheels turning and I know she understands what I'm saying. Sadie demonstrated how to be a good neighbor to a mother deer who chose our neighborhood to raise her two babies in the weeks following their birth. We told Sadie she needed to be a good neighbor, and we asked her to watch out for the babies and not scare them by barking. She responded by quietly lying on the deck or in the grass watching them, no barking. When mom and/or the babies were in the grass next to our split rail fence, Sadie quietly watched and again, she did not bark. It was inspiring to watch as she frequently barks at the squirrels, birds, and cats that encroach on our yard. The quality of our relationship with Sadie has improved since her distance healing sessions. I would highly recommend Eden to anyone who needs guidance with their pet. She is genuinely concerned for both you and your pet and her guidance is done with care and concern."

"I contacted Eden because in the course of a year, my family had acquired several companion animals, and I wanted to make sure that everyone was content being at our home. Even though I had minimal questions to ask, I received much information from the session. Eden communicated with all of our companions, and I am assured that two dogs, six birds, a cat, two hamsters and a fish can live harmoniously with each other in our home. I have a better understanding of how to speak to each one in a manner that each finds valuable and meaningful to that particular soul.
An example of how Eden's visit made an immediate difference: Our Nanday conure was due to have his nails trimmed, and was nippy and biting everyone but one family member. After Eden's visit, he has been less nippy and when we went to get his nails trimmed, the vet and assistant were astonished with how good he was cooperating with the procedure!"

“I had Eden conduct a Reiki session with my big gelding, Chesty, and found it to be a very beneficial session. Chesty is a horse that tenses up anytime anyone would go near him unless he really knows you. Eden’s own energy seemed to have a soothing effect on him and as she continued to perform the Reiki on him, he seemed to settle even more. These days Chesty is a much more relaxed horse and I attribute this to the Reiki sessions Eden conducted with him.”
"Sassy is an intelligent, spirited, and somewhat neurotic dog who can read people very well. The very first encounter Eden had with Sassy she immediately put her at ease and a very special bond was formed. Sassy is definitely MY dog and very attached to me. “Mama Eden”, as she became known, was the only person I would even think of leaving Sassy with. Eden’s ability to connect with animals and understand them is uncanny. Several times Eden performed energy work on Sassy and immediately she would respond and become calm and relaxed. I know this is why Sassy became so attached to her. When Eden moved out of the area to advance her career, Sassy was visibly upset. I know she misses her dearly. I would highly recommend Eden for all types of energy work. Her intuition, skills, and healing abilities exceed any I have encountered and she is obviously very gifted in all aspects of the healing arts."
Testimonials for People:
"In the summer of 2010, I lost my very dear cat Kensington. It was a devastating period in my life to lose a pet who had been my partner in life for eight years and then was suddenly taken away. I learned of Eden's
healing powers for humans through her website. She was able to come into my life at the time I needed someone the most. Eden took the time to help me connect spiritually with my cat. I was unaware of how truly connected our spirits are with those around us. Through her guidance, encouragement and instruction I found the will to heal. I feel blessed to have found Eden and been touched by her kindness and generosity."
"At a time that we were experiencing deep sorrow and guilt over the loss of our pet, Eden stepped into our lives offering compassion, hope and wisdom. Her emotional support and resources comforted us in our journey of grief. Thank you, Eden, for the kindness which is such a part of you."
"Eden Koljord is a remarkable healer who taught me about animal energetics that I have been able to use with my own pets, very successfully on several occasions. I've also been fortunate to have Eden work with me. She was able to unlock a hidden truth that I had long ago blocked and yet held remnants of the pain deep inside. Eden helped me to integrate my loss, and thus experience equal amounts of joy and self love. Eden is a very talented Resonance Therapist, whom I trust and would highly recommend."
Joan I. Hedges, N.D.
"I had several Resonance Therapy sessions with Eden earlier this year (2010). Although unfamiliar with this modality, I was willing to address a physical issue and an emotional concern with Eden and this approach. A painful neck/shoulder/upper arm, which I thought was a returned pinched nerve and had endured for over a month, subsided within days of our session. It was absent (and forgotten!) in less than two weeks.
My emotional concern had an even more immediate improvement. Under Eden's careful and compassionate guidance into and through Resonance Therapy techniques, I experienced a gentle "ahhh" understanding of this emotional tension and felt it crumble.
What I also know is that when my neck/shoulder/upper arm pain flared last month, I imagined having another session with Eden, lying on her table and being guided through Resonance Therapy. Within days, my pain was again gone and forgotten.
It is unimportant to me to intellectualize Resonance Therapy, to dissect it, to understand why it produces results. I simply know that Resonance Therapy, as practiced by Eden who understands its nuts and bolts, has effectively and efficiently assisted me in improving the quality of my physical and emotional life."
"You are such a kind and compassionate person. I felt comfortable being around you the moment we met. I am grateful that I had the opportunity to work with you. Thank you for not only relaying the messages I needed to hear, but for taking the time to guide me to develop my own way of receiving those messages. Thank you for giving me the gift of knowing that I am loved and to trust my own intuition. Thank you for so kindly conveying that although I, as others, have gifts also, it is OK to not have the desire to work in the healing field. It's OK to be at the level I am at. I cannot put into words all that you have given me.....so just let me thank you for sharing your gifts with others."
