About Second Nature Healing

The story of how Second Nature Healing began, as told by Rosemary:

Second Nature Healing evolved out of a love of nature and a deep connection to animals. It was actually because of my dog, Ginger, that the first edition of a website became a reality, appearing as “Rosemary’s Solutions” in 2006. This initial website chronicled Ginger’s story as it was written during her health crisis (hemangiosarcoma), and her subsequent miraculous healing and recovery – a story so significant and unusual that it had to be told (her story also became the basis of my first book, Heal Together).

Those early days when Ginger stayed close by my side, I could hardly believe what I witnessed, even though I was intimately involved with every aspect of Ginger’s presence. As I continued a protocol I developed intuitively, with some gratefully received help from a dear friend (who introduced me to zeolite), I felt I was on a new path, catapulted into a realm of natural healing that required more of me than I thought it was possible to give. My skills as teacher combined effortlessly with a desire to incorporate natural healing modalities. However, marketing myself was not on my radar. My connection with the world of helping people I never met came from a love of animals.

Currently, I employ no one. I might be the ultimate DIY-er . . . which brings me to a foundation philosophy that motivates me every day. We are perfect and whole spiritual beings. We are responsible for our own thoughts, our own happiness, our own health, prosperity, relationships, and BE-ing. The body knows how to heal, and does so with very little effort. The body – the perfect Do-it-Yourself state of being – is an extension of God’s heart. Our acceptance of wholeness gives us the idea that healing is Second Nature. However, we’re also given choices, knowledge, tools and information to help us manifest our greatest outcome. We ignore these pieces of existence, not at our peril, but as a part of our journey.

Over the years I’ve relied heavily on my intuition, trusting my instincts as well as my training as a scientist and teacher. As my awareness grew, so did my practice. At Second Nature Healing I now utilize energy healing techniques such as Reiki and Vibrational Sound therapy. I also have added several products to my personal protocol over the years that I believe support aspects of healing that might otherwise take longer. It’s so much easier to allow the body to heal if toxins have been removed, for example. Detoxification has become one of my high priority tools. I hope it becomes one of yours, too.

As I continue to grow, so has Second Nature Healing and the reach we have world-wide to connect people to real solutions beyond the narrow field of conventional medical practices (cut, burn, drug, and basically treat the symptoms rather than the whole). There are always options, and I hope I’m helping to provide a greater awareness for people who are searching for answers.

I’m more than delighted that working with my daughter, Michelle Hawk, has also evolved into a special advanced Shamanic Reiki program called Illumination Reiki. I actually secured that domain many years ago, before I understood why, or what it would become. It’s still growing – as am I. I invite you to connect with me. Drop me an email if you feel called to do so, or join me weekly on The Healer’s Journey free webinar. Maybe our journeys will intersect. I hope so.

Many blessings,

Rosemary Levesque

Working with Animals for Deep Healing

The Healer’s Journey Webinar series continues with Working with Animals. Learn about Deep Healing, what it means, and which tools to use to facilitate deep healing for animals – Reiki, essential oils, crystals, tuning forks, supplements, and detoxification all work together to change the vibration. The result can bring you closer together as you both become more deeply connected for healing.

Loving Animals – The Emotional Connection

Working with animals requires more than sensitivity. As healers, we have to be sensitive to the subtle signs and find ways to feel confident and filled with hope. Our animals trust us and rely on our choices to support them in their healing. Join us for webinar 20 of the Healer’s Journey as we discuss the human/animal bond and the strong emotions we have for the health and wellbeing of our animal companions.

What are some of the tools we have available to us when working with animals?

Loving Animals – The Emotional Connection, Webinar #20

How Animals Help Us Heal

The answer to healing may be as simple as petting your bunny, snuggling with your dog, hugging your horse, or playing with your cat. Stress has been proven to not only interfere with healing, but also cause or trigger diseases in people of all ages. Finding time to reconnect with animals changes how you feel, and lets loose your inner child. I’ve included several endearing videos to offer opportunities for you to remember your love of animals to help you heal.


PreciousHere is the story of Precious, a beautiful Samoyed who lives in SC with my friend, Joan. I received this story from Joan a couple of years ago, and began working with Joan to help restore Precious’ hearing. The story is written with updates as I received them from Joan, and begins in Nov, 2012.

Dear Friends,

I am writing to ask your help for my sweet 8 yr. old blind girl, Precious.  This incredible girl came to me just over a year ago and, though blind, she has been amazing as she blended with other dogs and a cat in her new life.  Blind since she was one, she leads me on walks as if she can see everything and loves to look up at birds singing and chase the sound of leaves blowing down the street.

But that all changed last Thursday (Nov 29),  I took her to a vet because another vet had been diagnosed with a yeast infection in her ears and I was having trouble putting the drops in.  This vet used another ear medication.

After the expected nap when we returned, I knew something was wrong as she just slept and was unresponsive to anything I said.  I called the vet’s office the next morning to see if the ear drops could have caused some side effect and they said she was probably “just tired”.  Nothing changed and Saturday afternoon when I called her in the yard, I realized what was (horribly) wrong…

My dear, sweet Precious could not hear!  I took her to the first vet this morning hoping that flushing her ears; even though it has been three days, may help restore some hearing as she cannot hear even a loud whistle next to her.  Now we wait.

Devastation and sadness does not begin to describe how I feel for Precious, YET I refuse to accept that all is lost and that the rest of her life will be both dark and silent. I am giving her Reiki and praying a lot and I know that prayers multiplied can work miracles.

Precious needs a miracle – Please pray that her hearing is restored.

Thank you – with our love,

Joan and Precious

Rosemary – Precious, was blind by the time she was 1 yr. old due to a retinal dysplasia from her parents. Possibly she had been born in a puppy mill as these dogs should not have been breeding.  I adopted her (via a posting on Petfinder) in October 2011. Upon her arrival from New Hampshire, she quickly “mapped” my house and settled in to a brand new life with other dogs and a cat.  She amazed me as she would “lead me” on walks even though she could not see at all. She relied on her hearing so much – she would look up at the sky when a plane flew over or try to chase the sound of leaves blowing down the street.  And, in the yard, when I called her name she would come running to the sound of my voice.  No blind human would do that!  When she lost her hearing it was devastating.  She just stayed in the corner all day and all night and would only get up if I went and got her to eat or go out.  I vowed not to accept this as a permanent condition. In addition to all the things I am sharing with you, I printed little signs that said Precious Can Hear!  I had them all over the kitchen, bathroom mirror, office and the car – so I was constantly reminded of what was to be.  I hope all of this helps.

First, I received my Abraham email message for the day which said:

When the contrast gets greater, the desire gets greater too, and that’s what miracles are from. A miracle is nothing more than a terrible situation that has caused strong desire and then somehow an alignment of Energy with the desire.

Then I took Precious to the groomer and while I was waiting a couple came in to get their dog – the man approached Precious and I told him she was friendly, blind and lost her hearing last week due to a medication that was put in her ears.  The lady never approached or said anything.  Her face looked as if she might have had a stroke (sort of paralyzed).  As their dog was coming out they both went over to the gate – then she turned around came back to Precious, bent down and placed her hand on her head – I could feel the lady’s energy of prayer for Precious.

Since this started, I have been talking to my four Angel Samoyed Girls – and asking them for their help.  Later this morning as I was driving, I first saw one very big, white, puffy cloud – the kind my Angels like hang out in.  There were no real shapes but I looked up and said aloud, “I know you are up there!”  Then as I continued to turn – there in front of me was a very long, white, puffy cloud and standing tall atop this cloud, as clear as could be, were 4 big white fluffy dogs!
Even as I write this I continue to be overwhelmed with tears of gratitude and joy.

When I got home I had a voice mail message from my friend, Bonnie.  She had just received Toning Pipe that does deep healing.  We are going to use it today.
Dec 5- Bonnie came over and I rang the toning pipe as she massaged and gave Reiki to Precious.  Then she was most playful with our hands and one of her favorite toys – and happy to wag her always grateful tail.

She is moving around more and last night she discovered the Christmas tree – it is a narrow tree that I had last year.  First she lay down on the rug and then started checking out the ornaments.  First, she picked the wings from a bird that Nala had removed two days ago and then she picked a paper Santa face, one of 6 I have had for decades.  “Sorry, Precious – you cannot have these!”

Hi Rosemary!

I want to thank you for continuing to leave up the photo of beautiful Precious and her need for a miracle.  She is on NCD and Mega D, get Reiki daily, I have found healing 528 HZ tones online which I play when she is beside me in my office.  Today, I added little signs I made simply saying, Precious Can Hear! and have posted them on my phones, mirrors, computer, around the kitchen, on my bed, in a pillow and the car – all to keep my energy positive and focused on a Miracle for Precious.  Continued prayers are needed and appreciated.

From our hearts – Thank you.

Joan and Precious

Precious Got Her Miracle! She can HEAR!

I am overjoyed to send this wonderful report.  On November 29 Precious lost her hearing and while her life changed dramatically, her amazing personality did not. True, she slept much of the day – in fact she wouldn’t get up until I touched her. I had to take her out on a leash, she never knew when it was time for a treat or a meal and  she didn’t greet me at the door because she did not know when I came home.  In fact there was very little communication unless I was close to and/or touching her. Still she had that cute wagging tail.

But through prayer, Reiki, flower essences, zeolite, healing pipes and a belief that her hearing would return – it has. It started very gradually on Dec 18, by first hearing the sound of a clicker at close range, but really nothing more until the past few weeks. Last week she heard the microwave door close, then a drawer and a few days ago she  heard me whistle and today – from a bit of a distance she heard me talk!

Perhaps, this has been more of an ordeal for me than her – because she “adjusted.”  But I never wanted to think about it that way because so much of her life had disappeared – her world was not just dark, it was silent. Today she has been awake a lot more and listening around  – because she can hear the sounds of life around her – once again she is engaged!

Right now it is almost dark and Precious is outside enjoying the cold weather and the best news is when I want her to come in – I can call her!

For Precious, thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
