Communicating with Wildlife

I am blessed to live in an environment with regular wildlife encounters. Just this morning I watched an elk cow and her newborn calf cautiously make their way around my house in front of my office windows, disappearing into the heavily wooded area to wait out the heat of the day. Not everyone lives with elk, deer, or fox as regular visitors; however wildlife is all around in the form of squirrels, birds, and butterflies, even in the busiest of city parks. Communicating with […]

It Can Be Magic! Finding THE Companion

By guest blogger Jackie, a client with a wonderful story to share. There are pets and there are pets. We love them all, but occasionally we may be blessed with a magical connection. This time round, I wanted THE cat vs A cat. My two cats and I have been in transition since Alfie arrived two years ago. He is smart and too clever, but as a result, was bored and restless. Pip was not interested in entertaining him. Although we were all content, the […]

Introducing a Youngster to Your Animal Family

There are special challenges when introducing a puppy, kitten, or any young animal into an existing animal family. Every circumstance is unique and requires individualized solutions, and there are two recent client consultations which we can use as general examples. A cat family is ready for a new kitty companion. The existing cats have been consulted before and during each foster experience which has helped the human to know what characteristics are most likely to work for all. Both existing cats have preferences: the […]

Capture the Memories!

These days it is so simple to snap a photo with our cell phone or iPad. It’s quick, easy, and fun to capture a special moment here or there. It’s becoming easier to capture memories via video, too, but do we take advantage of the technology as much as we should? When we flip through our phone’s photo gallery the memories of our adventures with our pets come flooding back. These photos are priceless and even more so when our pets pass on. But what about capturing the moment in video? Most […]

Moving With Your Pets

Let’s get right to the fact of it: moving from one home to another is stressful, exciting, and a lot of hard work. Moving is pretty challenging for us humans too! Keep your pets in mind while you prepare Stressful – Our pets pick up on our energy and while they may not know exactly the details of what is about to change, they know something is changing. Talking with your animals when you start to pack boxes is fine, however, a quick and simple conversation […]

Communicating with Rescue Animals

A large part of my animal communication practice is dedicated to animals who have been rescued by loving families. Many rescue animals come into their new families emotionally healthy; however some rescued animals have a past experience which requires time for healing. Every animal has different emotional needs which can be worked with. Some rescue animals have fears or separation anxiety to overcome. Some have more complex difficulties due to the treatment they received in their past. Generally a little time, patience, and lots of love will make a huge difference in […]

Beware of Household Medications

With permission from my animal communication client, following is an email I received recently. It contains an important reminder for animal guardians regarding medications which are extremely toxic to pets. I encourage us all to remain diligent in keeping any medications out of the reach of pets. Thankfully, due to the quick reaction of these guardians and appropriate care at the ER, these pups are good as new. I want to share a lesson we painfully learned this week. Thursday […]

How to “Hold the Energy” for our Pets

What does it mean to “hold the energy” when we are with our pets? It’s selecting a concept and feeling it, breathing it, believing it deeply in our core. It takes some focus because out in the world there are distractions. When we can remain conscious and consistently directed at our chosen end-result, however, the results follow. Let’s practice: Fluffy has had some litter box mistakes. Her vet has given her a clean bill of health and a professional animal communicator has identified Fluffy’s reasons […]

Pets Say the Funniest Things

One of the reasons I love communicating with animals so much is they are also uncensored, honest, and sincere. And boy do they say some hilarious things! Indulge me as I reminisce. I remember years ago working with Milo for the first time. He had been licking his foreleg for months and his human hoped we could understand why. This was a unique one for me and continues to be the only time an animal has explained that the lick sore is “his friend” and […]
