A Message for a Veterinarian Client from a Racehorse

“Do not pine for my physical presence for I am with you each and every day. Your flow with me was magic, this allowed for the expansion of ‘all that is’, our love and joy. When your heart feels full, you will sense my presence. It is this sensing that will help you with the others, those who run, and those who fall. While there is pain on the physical realm, there is but pure joy on this realm. Our connection allowed for you, glimpses of this, on your plane.

What you saw in me was just a reflection of yourself, for you are but a vast being of pure love and joy, with a heart as big and open as any on your plane. Nurture this heart for you are in an ever expanding mode, on your way to realms unimaginable to you at this time. Allow this blossoming as you would a rose, for this will heal, both yourself and others. The divine beings in equine vessels require this of you right now.

My special friend, I am honoured to be your partner. We will continue to ride together through the dimensions of space and time as we are now one.”

A Message from a Cat Killed by Coyotes

“Life is a dance, nothing more, nothing less. For some of us it is long and for others quite short. My leaving with the coyote sprit was fate and part of a soul agreement, which was entered into long ago and one that none of us are meant to know about while in the physical realm. Do not be angry with the coyotes, they and we are all part of the circle of life, and doing what we instinctively came here to do. I have no malice whatsoever towards them. In fact, as a soul, it was a beautiful experience and I am in absolute gratitude.

I have not really left you. I’ve simply left your plane and shifted shapes. I will be with you always, now and in other dimensions. Look for me in your dreams, visions and quiet times, as I will be there. Know that I can hear your thoughts and words. Call upon me when you need assistance. Listen for my teachings.

Do not weep for me my friends as I am as free as can be, soaring in the ethers. My energy has always been about freedom and I honor you for seeing that in me. To tie me down would have been intolerable. In time I shall return to you in another cat body and you will know me instantly. ‘Till then my dear ones, take good care and stay connected to who you are.”

The Divine Mission of Animals; Spirit Guidance from our Animal Companions

The wonderful furry, finned and feathered beings that we choose to share our lives with, or should I say choose to share their lives with us, are so much more than simply ‘pets’ in our lives. In fact, I believe that they are the bearers of profound spiritual messages and prompters of insightful spiritual growth through their gentle, and sometimes not so gentle nudging. This is because our animal companions have access to, and are guardians of our Divine Blueprint or Soul’s Blueprint.

dogThe Blueprint can be described as the divine ‘plan for the perfect unfolding of the highest potential for an individual soul’. It is a perfect state of consciousness, and can enable the awareness of the ‘ancient memories that lie deep within each of us’ to resurface. Being guardians of our Blueprints is a role of great magnitude for our companion animals and one that is not taken lightly. They see it as their life’s mission and utmost priority. In fact a happy animal is a sign of their satisfaction with our progress along our own individual paths. Certainly they have their own blueprints to develop and realize, but unlike many of us, their close ties to the spirit realm, allow them the strong ability to multitask and therefore help us while continuing their own development.

How could they possibly guide us, you may ask? In my private consultations I have seen it all. The animals are masters at their role and divinely creative in their work. To begin with let me share with you a little about one of my guides, ‘Lucero’ an Andalusian Stallion, likened to an ascended master of the equine realm, now in spirit form. We met, or shall I say our spirits met, somewhere around 1997. At that time I was in private practice as a Spiritual Psychotherapist and Kinesiologist and just ‘happened’ to attend an Animal Communication Workshop. Apparently Lucero had already planned for our ‘meeting’, and what was to transpire as I somehow managed to forget to bring the requested photos of my dog ‘Jiggs’, the love of my life, to the workshop, and instead consequently ended up connecting with him. His energy was literally jumping off the photo at me and I knew then that my life was about to change dramatically. Our connection was immediate and profound. I had never experienced divine universal love and acceptance the way I did in that moment. It was like a barrier had been broken for me and I could now see who I truly was. I knew that the flood of information that was coming through me was from a source much greater than me; in fact, I was channelling!

After driving home from my weekend away, with the feeling that my tires had never even touched the ground, it became very clear to me that the course of my life had changed, and that Lucero was the catalyst. He didn’t just choose me as the one being that he would work with and guide. As I got to know more about him over time I learned that he was the benevolent vehicle of change for many other healers as well. In fact, even from the spirit realm he has called together physical gatherings of healers, one of which I was lucky enough to attend last November in Canada. Lucero, the divine being of love and light is just one of the many souls who are in partnership with us for our soul’s benefit and growth.

Prior to this day, I had always known that my connection to and communion with god, spirit or the higher power was through animals and nature but what I didn’t know was that I would ever be helping others connect in this way professionally. Not until I had met Lucero anyhow. His ideas for me have definitely reshaped my life.

When doing consultations, some of the most common messages and teachings that I hear from the animals for humanity are as follows:

• Recognize that all beings have intelligence and sentient wisdom
• Love yourself and all living beings unconditionally
• Remain grounded and connected to the earths energy
• Live in the present moment
• Surrender to and accept where you’re at
• Follow your heart, follow your bliss
• Practice forgiveness
• Listen to your inner guidance
• Trust yourself
• Approach each day with a sense of wonderment
• Acknowledge yourself as the light beings that you are
• Meditate as often as possible
• Understand the naturalness of the circle of life – life, death and rebirth

If you tune in and pay attention, I’m sure you will witness your animal companions sharing some of these messages with you. If you don’t feel that you have mastered telepathy yet, you may just want to notice what they are showing you on the physical level. For example your indoor animal companion may be seeking out time in the bathroom, the one area where they can feel truly grounded via the plumbing, or perhaps they may want to lie down on you right on top of one of your chakras, always the one that needs a little healing and balancing by the way. They know what they’re doing and everything they do has a purpose. In consultations I am often asked by the animals to request that their person spend more time in meditation or for them to slow down a little and go through life a little more consciously taking time to smell the roses. When we don’t oblige the animals they will often try even harder to get our attention usually by some type of behaviour that we find unacceptable such as waking us up in the middle of the night. When your companion animal is trying to get your attention, always take note!

Acknowledging the sacred in our relationships with our animal companions is a must for anyone seeking true enlightenment. Recognizing that they come to us to guide us and heal certain aspects of ourselves including broken hearts, disowned or shadow aspects, and even physical ailments can give us a whole new perspective on the relationships that we have with them. Always remember that LOVE is their message.

Healing Animals with Flower Essences

Who doesn’t love flowers? They are beautiful, full of life force energy, fragrant and always seem to put us in a good mood. They have been used in society for years as expressions of love, celebration, sympathy and thanks. In addition to this, the ‘energies’ of flowers have been utilized in healing for close to a century in the form of flower essences. These subtle but powerful vibrational energies can help to profoundly heal not only us but our beloved animal companions on a variety of levels.

Flower essences were first developed in England in the 1930's, by researcher and physician Dr. Edward Bach. The ‘Bach Flower Remedies’ as they are called, were developed originally for humans as a catalyst for personal growth and emotional healing but have also been used safely in animals over the past sixty years. Many other flower essence lines have been developed around the world, since that time, using Bach’s methods. 

One of the most commonly known Bach Flower Remedies, Rescue Remedy, is a mix of five different flower essences (Cherry Plum, Clematis, Impatiens, Rock Rose and Star of Bethlehem) which together help humans and animals deal with emergency situations and stressful events. Most essence producers have their own version of this remedy which is known to ease stress, distress and tension, and encourage calm, reassurance and relaxation.  It is a safe alternative to a sedative or tranquilizer and can be used in animals in any emergency or stress situation. The uses are countless.

Simply put, flower essences are the energetic or vibrational frequencies of flowers captured in spring water. These frequencies contain the unique life force energy pattern or imprint of the flower, and when taken internally as an essence, they awaken specific resonant qualities in the animal’s soul. Animals in general are much closer to nature and flowers than we are as humans, both physically and figuratively speaking. In natural surroundings animals even have an innate knowing of which plants are essential to heal them, whether by ingesting the plant or just by resting beside it and absorbing its energy frequency. How many of you have seen cats basking in the energy of the alyssum in your flower bed, or witnessed the dandelion anointed crowns of dogs that have been rolling on a summers lawn?

In general, animals respond more profoundly and swiftly to flower essences than humans, due to the fact that they have considerably less complicated emotional and mental energy patterns. Often, the imbalances or dis-eases in their systems are absorbed from the people in the home, the environments that they are living in, or caused as a result of their failure to thrive in unnatural environments. As the animals are such sensitive energetic beings, they are also prone to suffering the collective injustices that are done to their species as a whole.

Personally I have found in my more than ten years of healing and communing with the animals, that there are specific energy patterns and imbalances, unique to the them, that benefit from flower essence healing. Therefore, I have developed a line of essences, The Animal Energy Essences http://animalenergy.com/flower-essences.html, especially for animals and specifically for the issues that they have been presenting. The benefit of these essences, which are all blends of more than one flower, is that they address these specific situations and patterns as a whole.

To give you an example of what these essences can do, my Spirit Renew formula was designed to work at a deep level to enhance and restore the will to live, help animals heal from injury, separation, loss, relationship changes, abandonment and during or after spending time in an animal shelter. The Who’s the Boss formula was created to deal with issues related to jealousy, dominance, aggression, territory and inflexibility, commonly found, but not exclusively, in dogs. With the Bach remedies I found I was recommending 4 or 5 remedies to work with this specific situation alone. I have also developed special remedies for each individual domestic species that offer over-all support for vitality, well-being and enhance their natural qualities.

Flower essences have no impact whatsoever on animals in the household who don’t require them, and as a matter of fact it is recommended that all occupants of a household, including the people, take the same essences. This helps to create an integrated and harmonious environment.  Often the animals are absorbing energies and emotions from the people in the family anyhow so this may help to clear up the source of their issues as well.

Essences are fragrance free, easy to administer and safe. With no known side effects, they do not interfere with medications making them a great addition to holistic and allopathic medicine. Whoever coined the phrase “Take time to smell the roses” just might have been on to something.

The Summer Solstice, an Auspicious Time for our Animal Companions


The Summer Solstice or time of "great light" is upon us here in the northern hemisphere, and at this time of year, we (and our animal companions) ‘can truly feel the effects of Father Sun, as his yang rays warm our Mother Earth’. This union brings forth an abundance of life, food, warmth, creativity, higher consciousness and awareness. Many people around the world mark this special time of year with ceremonies to honour the longest, and most light-filled day of the year, and in many cases our animal companions also take part.

This can be a very significant time of year for our animal friends. In the wild, animals are extremely in tune with nature and the ebbs and flows of the seasons. On a physical level, solstices often mark specific times for them for activities such as mating, hibernation, migration and transformation. Our animal companions are also very much in tune with us, and are connected to our rising consciousness and awareness, as well as the collective universal energies as a whole, which are very much heightened and magnified at this time. In my many years of practicing animal communication and healing, I have seen a vast number of significant events in our animal companion's lives take place on solstices and other auspicious days. Often these dates mark a natural part of the cycle of life for the animals, whether it be birth, death, or rebirth (reincarnation). This is due in part to the fact that our animal companions, especially the ones that live with more enlightened humans, are very sensitive to energies in general, and at these times, the veils are thinner and the energies are stronger, providing for ease of movement, whether to into a new physical body, or into the afterlife. In my recent MasterMind interview with Pioneer Animal Communication Specialist Penelope Smith, she mentions that sometimes this occurs because the animal companion is either able to bring us a greater gift, or open a beneficial portal, at this time. My Golden Retriever, Jiggs, made his transition during a very auspicious time himself. He left the physical plane on Sept. 10, 2007, the day after the 9-9-9 harmonic energy signifying 'completion or ending of a transitional cycle and the commencement of the first new earth cycle' and the day before the new moon and partial solar eclipse signifying the 'completing of the old cycle and commencing the new'.

Happy Summer Solstice to you and yours, and don't be surprised if mother nature shows you a symbol of transformation during this time, perhaps you'll spot a snake, frog, butterfly or caterpillar while going about your daily business or enjoying a stroll in nature.

A Client Receives Life Changing Guidance from her Bunny Lulu Belle

I have mentioned many times that I feel our animal companions come to us as spiritual guides and even continue to guide us from the other side, once they have crossed over. During the last number of years my coaching and consulting practice has evolved toward helping people connect with, and learn from, this divine guidance offered by their animal companions. Clients are able to utilize it to move closer to their ‘divine blueprint’ or highest expression of their soul’s purpose. Many have taken the information that comes through from their animal companions, and made major changes and decisions in their life, even business decisions, and this is very exciting for me!

A wonderful example of this is my client Lisa in La Jolla California who received and acted upon guidance from her bunny Lulu Belle which led to a life altering experience for her, that involved following her hearts desire, changing careers, and hence creating a whole new lifestyle for herself. Here’s how the story goes: Lisa had been looking to get a bunny for some time but didn’t have that special feeling she knew was so important with many of the bunnies that she looked at. That was until she connected with the sweet bunny soul who came to be known as Lulu Belle, and here’s what Lisa says about it “I asked at the store to hold her, and the moment I held her, I KNEW she was mine. I told my boyfriend at the time ‘this is the one’, and he asked me if I was sure, and I said a resounding yes!”. Lisa knew with every cell of her being that Lulu Belle was the wonderful soul that was meant to share her life. Little did she know at that time, that her life would change beyond measure as a result of her partnering up with this cuddly little bunny.

During the course of Lulu Belles short life, Lisa was guided by her to leave her career in real estate and follow her true bliss, to create an online fashion boutique. Fashion has always been a passion for Lisa and something that she has a genuine talent for. Now when she wakes up in the morning she doesn’t have to dread doing a career that doesn’t make her heart sing but instead does something she loves with the full support of her rabbit friend in spirit form who is now offering her guidance from the other side.

This new venture has been a very successful endeavor for Lisa, so successful in fact that she has launched a physical boutique as well in La Jolla CA, and guess what it’s called? Lulu Belle Boutique! Lucky you, if you live nearby, and are able to pay her a visit. If not, you can see the fruits of Lulu Belle’s guidance at http://www.lulubelleboutique.com/ .

Lisa has this to say about Lulu Belle: “She was the most loving animal I have ever met. She was sent to me to teach me unconditional love and to follow my heart, and she was the true inspiration for my store and new found career, something I am so passionate about!” How wonderful and transformative for Lisa that she was able to connect with the guidance from Lulu Belle and heed the message.

This evolution in my own work is obviously a part of my own soul’s blueprint which I am continually guided towards by Jiggs, Lucero and all my other animal guides. The new name of my newsletter, ‘The Divine Mission of Animals’, reflects this evolution, and I am forever grateful to the animals for this guidance. What are your animals calling to you?

Assisting our Animal Companions with their Transition

This topic is one which felt timely today after helping a number of clients with this sometimes gut wrenching but often loving gift we give our animal companions. When we share our lives and love with wonderful beings of the furred, feathered and finned variety there often comes a time when we feel their decline and know that their quality of life is waning, and that their suffering is increasing. Assisting them on their journey to the other side may become an inevitable option, yet many of us still wonder “am I doing the right thing”. That is something that only you can answer for yourself; some of you may have religious beliefs that do not agree with euthanasia and others may just not be able to think about it.

My litmus test for knowing whether it’s time or not, is to tune into the soul or spirit of the animal to see what they are feeling about the situation (this is a large part of my services). Many are very willing to have themselves freed from bodies that are no longer serving them, so they can run and jump like youngsters, in the ethers, and yet there are others who may prefer to make their transition naturally. My experience has been that often times our animal companions will work with our own personal belief systems when it comes to their crossing. If we do not believe in assisting them, they will accept that and adapt accordingly. To bring some comfort to those who have assisted their animal companions at the end, I have never spoken to a being on the other side who complained about what was ‘done to them’, in fact all of the animals on the other side seem to be in a wonderful, blissful state of happiness, in a place where they’re wanting for nothing. It’s us, those who are left behind, that tend to toil so much over it. Our grief for their loss can sometimes come in the form of denial that they were really ready for their transition, guilt for making the decision for them etc. Unfortunately, that is human nature.

Many times I am asked by a client if their animal companions will ever forgive them for their decision to help them transition and I want to assure all of you that they see it as the ultimate gift and the truest expression of love. Your animal companions, both here and on the other side are always in tune with your innermost feelings and intentions and ‘read’ them as the barometer for how you feel about them and what you intend for them. They can still access your thoughts and love even when on the other side so be sure to communicate with them and let them of how you feel.

Please Note: Animal Communication is not a substitute for good Veterinary care.

Walking Gently Through the Transition of our Animal Companions

Facing the transition of one we love, whether human or animal, is not something we like to think about, but the reality and inevitability of it makes it something we must do, often many times, when we choose to share our lives with animal companions. I thought I’d share a few tips that I found helpful, to help you consciously negotiate the process whenever this time comes for you.

Be present – do your very best to stay in the present moment with your animal companion throughout the entire process. This way you can be fully there for both them and yourself.

Breathe – be sure to breathe deeply throughout all of the trials and tribulations of the process including that actual moment when the soul leaves the body, if you are there. When stressed we often forget to breathe deeply and receive the healing benefits associated with it.

Be grounded – maintain your connection to Mother Earth. Feel your feet on the floor and your energy field firmly around you. If you are having problems grounding, either lie down on the ground, or hug a tree, you will be amazed at the shift you will experience.

Keep your Animal Companion Comfortable – at the end of the life of your animal companion, do you very best to keep them as comfortable as possible, always being conscious of what and how they’re feeling.

Gentle Support – use flower essences to support you and your animal companions through the process. I used my Easing Loss formula.

Honor their Process – honor the process they go through, it is not always as clear cut as we would like, and may take turns which can be hard on us, but by staying connected to and allowing them their process, we are offering a wonderful gift to them.

Allow them to go – let them know that it’s ok to go, and that you will be ok. Often they will hang on for us, and by letting them know that it’s ok for them to go, you help to free their soul.

Understand the naturalness of the process – the cycle of life, death and rebirth is all around us in nature. Each part of this cycle is as natural as another. Our animal companions celebrate death, and show me images of themselves as soaring like eagles after leaving their bodies. It is true joy for them.

Be Gentle with Yourself – allow yourself enough time to grieve, and process your emotions. Letting them out now, will be much healthier than pushing them down, as they have a tendency to fester when unexpressed. I used my flower essence Easing Loss and the homeopathic Ignatia and they were a godsend.

Practice Self Care – do nice things for yourself. Get a massage, go for a healing treatment, take baths, spend a weekend away or simply in nature. Whatever it is that will really make you feel cared for.

Stay connected to their Sprit – know that your animal companions will stay connected to you in spirit, and that the love that you shared doesn’t end with the ending of their physical body. Their spirits live on and they love to connect with you from the other side, either directly or though the help of an animal intuitive.

I hope you don’t need these tips soon, but you will have them when you do. I followed them during my time of loss, and they were very useful to me.

Healing Animals with Dowsing

I get so excited about dowsing that I wanted to jump right in and tell you about the wonderful things you can do with it, but then I remembered that some of you may not even know what dowsing is, so I will take a couple of deep breaths, back up and start from the beginning. Dowsing is a method of tapping into the collective consciousness using a pendulum, L rod, bobber, or even your own body in the case of an advanced dowser. For the purposes of this article, and simplicity, I’m going to stick to the use of a pendulum. You may wonder how you can possibly get useful information from an inanimate object like a pendulum but what is really happening, is that the pendulum is showing you (the dowser) the effects of neuromuscular changes in your hands, as a result of your body’s reaction to the answer, to the questions asked. That is a mouthful, and perhaps a lot to grasp but it is exactly what happens. To obtain accurate results a dowser must be balanced, centered, grounded and hydrated.

Moving on to the practical applications of dowsing, my favorite way of describing what I use it for, is the ‘matching of energies’. Say you want to choose a flower essence or crystal for an animal companion, with dowsing; you can pick the one that is most beneficial for them, at this time. As any dowser knows, the one that is most beneficial is not always the one that seems most obvious. You can also use dowsing to pick a Veterinarian or groomer, to choose the best diet and supplements for your animal companion and even to become more in tune and intuitive with them. Really, the sky is the limit here. I use it regularly in my healing system to clear energies and promote wellbeing with fantastic results.

With dowsing, you can answer any question that has a yes or no answer. Once you are proficient at it, it can be very empowering for you, and will definitely enhance your bond with your animal companions.

Please Note: Dowsing is not a substitute for good Veterinary care.

Chakras and Animals

While teaching my most recent Teleclass entitled Healing and Understanding Animals through the Chakras, I having been sharing with my students the different issues and imbalances related to each particular chakra. I thought I’d give you a sampling of that information here, in hopes that it will be relevant to you, or your animal companions. I’ve chosen the root chakra, sometimes known as the base chakra, to write about today, as it is one that relates to so many of the issues facing our animal companions. In case the concept of chakras is completely new to you, they are simply energy voticies or portals which enable our animal companions to absorb and assimilate universal life force energy.

The root chakra is all about safety, trust, security, individuality, grounding, health, courage, and status in the pack, or herd. Imbalances in this chakra can occur in so many ways including abandonment, abuse, stays in a shelters or small stalls, or even not having enough access to the healing energies of mother earth. Our animal companions are so connected to nature and require varying amounts of connection to the ground to maintain their equilibrium. You know you own animal companions best, and will know instinctively if they are requiring more contact with mother earth.

It’s interesting to note that the element that relates to this chakra is the ‘earth element’ and the spirit animal that is sometimes associated with the root chakra is the mole, and where do we find the mole I might ask? The ‘spirit medicine’ of the mole is all about learning to respect our dependence on the alchemy of the earth. It is this alchemy of the soil, after all, that supports all life. I feel it is a safe bet to deduce in fact, that in order to keep all of our root chakras healthy, we must protect this alchemy of the earth.

If you have an animal companion that you suspect has an imbalance such as un-groundedness, excessive fear or timidity, hopelessness, apathy or any issues related to their individuality or their place in the pack, you can help them in the following ways. The color red is a balancer for the root chakra and you can simply place that color around them, in bedding, or on collars or halters. You can also place a crystal such as garnet or hematite near them (always thinking of safety first, of course). Or, you can simply get them out on mother earth to soak up her rays, more frequently. For those of you who have had private consultations with me, you already know how important I feel it is for our animal companions to be grounded, and you know the drill.

Please Note: Animal Communication and Healing is not a substitute for good
Veterinary care.

Colour Therapy

Have you ever stopped to wonder why fire engines and stop lights are coloured red? Perhaps you’ve noticed that certain colours just lift your spirits and put you in a great mood while they may do the exact opposite for your spouse or friend. There’s good reason for this. Scientific data confirms that each colour found in the visible light spectrum has it’s own measurable wavelength and vibrational frequency. This means that the colour blue is vibrating at a different frequency, or energy level, than the colour red. Individuals, as well as our animal companions, will have varying reactions to each specific frequency. It is these particular vibrations of colour that treat various conditions by promoting healing and balance in whatever areas that our bodies (or those of our animal companions) are lacking. Issues on physical, emotional, mental or spiritual levels may be treated.

Colour therapy (also known as chromatherapy) is an ancient form of healing which has it’s roots in India (Ayurvedic Medicine), Egypt, and China. To fully understand how colour therapy works and the level that it works on, it’s important to have a general understanding of the human/ animal energy field. In addition to our visible physical bodies, we are each made up of energetic bodies, including the aura or subtle bodies, chakras, and meridians. Universal life force energy enters our field through the subtle bodies and works it’s way through them to the chakras. From there it travels along the meridians and makes it’s way into the nervous, endocrine and circulatory systems and then on to the cells, tissues and organs of the body. When our energy fields are clear of blockages, imbalances and negative influences this process runs smoothly and good health is maintained, however issues, even those that are emotional in nature can interfere with this flow. It is through vibrational therapies such as colour that we can help to restore the balance in this system.

Administering colour to animals can be done in various ways including using coloured fabrics for bedding and blankets, selecting specific colours for halters and collars, bathing them in lights from a colour-filtered light source or solarizing their drinking water. To use colour via light, simply place a coloured light (or regular light with a theatrical colour gel or transparency over it) in an area of the house or stall with a comfy place for them to rest and allow the animal to gravitate to the area on their own. Their instincts will naturally guide them towards what their bodies need. It is very important to make sure they are not subjected to this in a crate, cage or small stall where they are not able to get away from it when they wish to. They will intuitively know if and when they’ve had enough. To solarize drinking water, simply surround a glass container of water with an appropriately coloured theatrical gel and leave it in the sunlight for a number of hours. Then serve this water to your animal companion in their dish or water bucket.

The following is a partial list of colours that can be used and their healing properties on psychological levels

Red - Vitality, Courage, Self Confidence
Use for a timid animal or when your companion animal is facing a particularly demanding day and needs extra energy

Orange - Happiness, Confidence. Enthusiasm
Use to bring joy to your animal companion, and to help them to be more independent, self assured and social

Yellow - Mental Ability, Versatility, Playfulness
Use when concentration is needed or to promote playfulness and flexibility in rigid animals

Green - Balance, Love, Calmness
Use to help relax your animal companion and bring about a feeling of peace, harmony and unconditional love

Blue - Health, Knowledge, Relaxation
Use to help pacify nervous and hyperactive animal companions, especially those who fret or appear to ruminate

Indigo Sedative, Calming, Intuition
Use to enhance telepathic communication with your animal companion, also to calm and sedate them and clear away anger

Violet - Soothing, Inspiration, Creativity
Use to give inspiration to an animal during training or difficult tasks,to promote soothing and calming, and to dispel depression

In my healing practice, I have successfully used the colour blue on an elderly dog with bad hips and arthritis to help ease his pain during his final days. I have also recommended using the colours red and orange for a client with a top performing show dog who was required to compete during a false pregnancy while feeling very lethargic and definitely not interested in putting her best foot forward. Another frequently used and favourite of mine is the colour violet to help lift depression. This is a condition that due to many factors is more prevalent than we often realize.

You may be one of the many people who is wondering if animals can see colour. There has been a long standing belief that they can’t. As an Animal Communicator and Healer, animals have shown me time and time again that they can, via the images and impressions that they send me, but to double check this fact, I called a Holistic Veterinarian who confirmed for me that she also believes that they do see colour. What’s interesting to note here is that even if they don’t, it’s the vibrational frequency of the colour not the visual impact that will work on their energy bodies to do the required healing.

While most of what we’ve talked about so far relates to the healing of emotional and behavioural issues, colour therapists routinely work with coloured light sources on physiological issues with great success. To give you a general understanding of how this works, cool coloured lights such as blue, green and violet are used to treat heated conditions such as inflammation or ulcers, whereas cool conditions such as poor circulation respond best to warm coloured lights like red, orange and yellow. To gain a further understanding I highly recommend referring to the book Let There be Light by Darius Dinshah or taking a class with The Colour Institute.

By being conscious of what colours we are placing in our animal companion’s surroundings, we can definitely influence their energy fields in a positive way, and hopefully, avoid any undesired effects. For those of you with an energetic puppy or kitten, perhaps you might want to think twice before redecorating your dining room in red…….green anyone?

Please Note: Colour Therapy is never a replacement for good Veterinary care.

Communicating with the Animals

Do you ever wonder what it is about the connection with our animal companions that seems to feel so significant, deep and relevant to us? People are becoming increasingly aware at this point in time that animals are teachers and healers and it is our job to listen to them. Personally I believe that the path to self-awareness and personal healing is through communion with our animal companions. How do we do that you might ask?

dogAs a professional Animal Intuitive or intuitive communicator, I do it regularly and I will share with you some of the techniques I use, so that you may experiment with them yourself. I believe that given the desire, everyone has the ability to master this skill; in fact I feel that it is our birthright.

In my work I use telepathy to communicate with the animals. I like to think of the developing of our telepathic abilities as an ever- evolving spiritual discipline. The more you put into it, the greater the benefits you will reap. Like many other spiritual disciplines, the key components are quieting the mind and focusing the intention. Next I visualize a beam of light running from my third eye and heart center to the animal’s heart center forming a triangle. I then make a connection with the animal’s soul or spirit by calling out their name three times, either verbally, out loud, or silently in my head. When I feel I’ve made the connection it’s time to send questions to them and ‘listen on the inside’ for the answers. This entails really listening to whatever information comes my way whether it’s via a voice, feeling, picture or symbol. The data may come in many forms and is usually fleeting. Often when beginners hear this information it’s in their own voice and this can create doubt. Practice and confidence will alleviate this and make it easier to trust and accept what is received.

‘What do they tell you?’ you might be wondering. No personal secrets, don’t worry, just information that is relevant to their health, happiness and well being, or, yours. You see the animals are just as concerned about you, as you are about them. They may choose to converse about personal preferences, routines or household changes they want to see implemented, or perhaps health concerns. They will even negotiate with you on behavioural or what I would term emotional issues. This can be very effective in eradication of undesirable behaviour. Sometimes they just want to share information about their higher purpose for being with you.

Animal communication is a magical experience and whatever form it takes we are all privileged to be a part of it. If we listen to the animals, they will teach us not only how to heal them, but also how to heal ourselves and mother earth. They are pleading with us at this time to wake up and become conscious, let’s not let them down.

Animal Communication and Fleas, a Unique Approach
(Ticks, and Heartworm Too!)



Occasionally I am called upon in my Animal Communication and Healing Practice to help a client deal with fleas or ticks.

My personal philosophy on helping our animal companions stay flea, tick and even heartworm free is by maintaining a strong and healthy immune system by feeding them a 100% natural diet (yes that means real food!) and avoiding placing any toxins either on or near them. While this goes completely against the grain of conventional Veterinary treatment, I do it myself and it works. In fact natural prevention is all I do with my own almost 14 year old Golden Retriever, Jiggs, who is now virtually flea free in an area, know for heavy flea population. I also include regular swims in the healing and very salty ocean water as I find this a wonderfully natural and low cost flea preventative (it also helps his arthritis immensely but that’s for another story). I don’t give Jiggs heartworm medication either, as I have been relying on his vibrant health and salty coat as a preventative.

When clients contact me regarding trouble with fleas and ticks, I always recommend the following:

• Speak to your Holistic Veterinarian about natural prevention and cures
• Find supplements to boost his or her immune system
• Try to make your animal companion as least desirable to these parasites as possible, as they tend to prey on the weaker, less healthy animals

As far as the actual animal communication goes, I use it to connect with the animal to find out what they need and want in relation to immediate treatment and preventative measures. More often than not, if one of my clients notices a flea or two, my first approach is to connect with the fleas themselves. This is a very unconventional approach and is based on the belief that all sentient beings have divine wisdom. They are living beings with their own opinions and perspectives to share and might even just be here as a wake up call for those of us who are ready, urging us to look deeper into the health of our animal companions to see what we can do to boost it.

I first of all thank the fleas for whatever information they are bringing to me or the animal’s guardian, as I find that gratitude goes a long way in negotiating with them. I then explain to them the havoc and discomfort they are causing, assuring them that we have received their message, whatever it may be, loud and clear, and then ask them to move on, or even transmute, by leaving this life form and reincarnating as another. What I do find, is that if they are given a voice and allowed to share their wisdom, they are often very willing to help by moving on. Unfortunately what can often happen in our quick fix world is that we humans get so resistant to them (you’ve all heard the saying ‘what you resist, persists’) that they tend to stay and increase in numbers.

I prefer to put my energy and focus on a healthy vibrant animal companion, and build the energy around that thought rather than giving it to thoughts of the fleas. To some of you, this may sound like ‘pie in the sky’ thinking but I truly have found it to work. Years ago I had a regular client with 12 dogs and 3 cats call me up in a panic. She lives in a high flea area but chooses to use as natural an approach to flea prevention as possible. She had taken a couple of her dogs out to an agility event and when she returned she found a few fleas on one or two of them. She was mortified! If they had spread through the pack and to the cats it could be disastrous and she would need her whole house fumigated, and this was something she was definitely against. I used my communication skills to talk to the animals in the home and the fleas and taught her how to connect with them herself (she was a past student of mine) and ‘low and behold’ the fleas chose not to take up residence in her house.

I know for some of you that I may be stretching your comfort zone by suggesting these methods but in my decade plus practice, I have seen positive results and much prefer this method to using harmful products that weaken the animals immune systems further and therefore increase the vicious cycle of making them more susceptible to the fleas. Can I convince you to talk to your holistic vet about this?

Interspecies Telepathic Communication

I recently received an article from a friend that describes a parrot with an unparalleled power to communicate with people. N’kisi, an African Grey, invents his own words and phrases such as ‘flied’ for ‘flew and ‘pretty smell medicine’ for aromatherapy when he is confronted with ideas for which he does not possess vocabulary for. He even jokes around and introduces interesting phrases into conversation.

The intelligence of this being is in itself is amazing, but the part of the article that really sparked my interest was the part about interspecies telepathic communication. If you have always wanted to believe in animal communication but felt that you needed some ‘concrete’ proof that it is in fact possible, I think this may do it for you.

“In an experiment, N’kisi and his artist owner were put in separate rooms and filmed as the artist opened random envelopes containing picture cards”. Obviously parrot and woman were still in complete communion with one another despite the separate locations as “analysis showed the parrot, from the other room, had used appropriate keywords for the cards three times more often than would be likely by chance. This was despite the researchers discounting responses like "What ya doing on the phone?" when N'kisi saw a card of a man with a telephone, and "Can I give you a hug?" with one of a couple embracing.

As I was preparing to write this article, a timely newsletter from Liz Mitten Ryan arrived in my inbox with the following quote from her new book:
"Consciousness is ALL and ALL is consciousness. There is only one consciousness. When you realize the implications of this truth you realize that thoughts anywhere in the world, human or animal, are all available. It is harder for humans to tap into the consciousness of ALL, but it is possible, and even more so, when we connect with animals and nature. Like Monet says, you must make it routine. It is similar to meditation, but a meditation done in the company of animals and nature. It is particularly easy in the presence of horses, as the vibration of their energy is large and of a high frequency."
"The reason animals are all connected to consciousness is that they have not formulated any rules or limitations as to how the world works, - they simply respond to their intuition rather than discounting it as unscientific. Science is beginning to discover that infinite possibility does not follow rules."

I couldn’t have written it any better myself, it echoes my sentiments exactly. Each of us can communicate with our animal companions and all of life by accessing the collective consciousness. All it takes is trust, intention, practice and a little time spent in solitude with nature and the animals. I am currently working on a new in depth home study audio course and manual to help you to do just that. Keep an eye out for further details.
Here is the link to the original article about N’kisi

Flash Gordon; Parakeet and Master Healer!

“Who would have thought, that a flyaway budgie could have such wonderful teachings and profound healing effects on my unsuspecting, bird loving client, Peter?” Upon meeting and getting to know ‘Flash Gordon’, or ‘Flash’ as he sometimes likes to be called, during the course of our sessions, it is a question I keep asking myself.

Flash just appeared one day out of nowhere, at one of Peters many bird feeders. At this time, Peter was struggling with the emotional demons of fear, anxiety, and depression and was having a difficult time pulling himself out from under their grasp.

It appears that Flash took this as the perfect window of opportunity to wend his way in to Peter’s heart and slowly start to work his unique budgie magic, on his soul. By showing up as a neon green budgie, whose natural home is in the jungle, there was not much of a chance that this being’s light could be missed. Flash needed Peter to notice him, and he did.

Being the wonderful healer and teacher that Flash is, it was not long before Peter looked forward to his regular visits and began to learn what he was here to share. One of the things that I find interesting is that Flash initially showed himself to Peter in ways that he could relate to. He showed his scientific approach to learning important new things like how to land on particular perches so that he could reach the premium food that he wanted, he also showed great compassion and love while studying the blind eyes of an elderly grackle. These are qualities that caught Peter’s attention simply because they are qualities he possessed himself so they resonated well within him.

As time went on there were many instances that Peter expressed his fears for Flash’s safety to me, whether they be due to visits by a resident hawk, or inclement weather, etc. Each and every time Flash pumped himself up like the powerful warrior type being that he is, and told me there was nothing to worry about. Flash even exhibited the instincts of a wild bird, even though it was obvious that he had been tame at some point. It seemed he could telepathically tap into his wild companions, and absorb what he needed from them, as required.

Through the course of our consults it became apparent that Flash was fearless, strong, confident, and wise, all attributes that he urged Peter to adopt. Flash helped him see that a life lived without worries and fears, perhaps lived even a little on the edge, could bring pure joy and bliss. Flash continued to share the absolute delight he experienced in his freedom, and made it very clear that he had no interest in coming back inside, no matter what the circumstances. I felt Peter on the precipice of opening his own wings and taking flight himself. It seemed that his heart had been residing in the spiritual, emotional and ethereal realms while his head still had a foothold in all the scientific training he’d had. Flash was showing him that once he let his heart lead, that he would be able to spread his own wings and soar.

Flash is off on his own journey right now to avoid the harshest elements of winter, but continues to oversee Peter’s transformation and growth in spirit. Weekly I see Peter glimpsing light, joy and empowerment and I sense Flash smiling down on him.

Will my Beloved Animal Companion Reincarnate?


I am often asked by clients how they will know if their animal companion is coming back to them through reincarnation, or if in fact their animal companion is a reincarnation of a previous one. I want to share with you that very frequently, actually more often than not, our animal companions do spend numerous lifetimes with us, and often even ‘travel’ with us through a number of our lifetimes. This is why they are so often experts at our life’s purpose and soul’s divine mission, whether we acknowledge it or not. Sometimes they even know us better than we know ourselves.

While exploring this in sessions with clients over the years and talking to thousands of animals, I have found an interesting scenario. In cases where our animal companions do not reincarnate, for whatever reason, there is often a part of them that comes through in our new animal companions. In a way it’s like a piece of their soul is here with us while they reside on another plane.

Take my new puppy Carly for example. Many of you know that my beloved Golden Retriever Jiggs made his transition in September 2007 at 14 . He made it clear to me then that it wasn’t his intention to return to me in the near future, if at all, as he had important things to take care of from the spirit realm, mainly guiding me and influencing the direction of my teaching, writing and life. Being very much like me, and not one to want to miss out on things, I truly see pieces of him in Carly. I know for a fact that Carly is not a full embodiment of Jiggs but I find some of the idiosyncrasies to be uncanny. Right off the bat, Carly started trying to lick my eyelashes, not exactly a regular dog-like behavior, but one that Jiggs did as a young puppy. Next, she insisted on coming into the bathroom right after I got out of the shower to lick the water droplets off my ankles and shins. This is one of her favorite activities and one that gets her fluffy white tail wagging so hard that you’d think it was the high light of her day. I don’t really know if this is standard dog behavior, but I’d venture a guess that it’s not, and again it was one of Jiggs’ favorites in his younger years. Another of her perhaps unusual traits, and one that mimicked Jiggs again, was her absolute ease at being left alone in the house, right from the first day she arrived. I had to pop out for some veggies, and decided that after her long car trip up here from Scottsdale, and being left by her lifetime caregivers, and separated from her doggie friends, that taking her out again might have been too much for her, so I opted to leave her alone in an ex pen while I made the trip. It did not phase her a bit that I left! .Jiggs shared this ease at being left alone with her, and I know for sure that this is not normal puppy behavior.

I had quite a few conversations with Jiggs about this, just to double check things as they sure were suspect, and it seems that when he sent Carly to me, he sent a puppy with many of his familiar traits. He went on to say that she is a part of his soul group and that there is a very deep connection between the two but they are not one in the same soul. So in this new little girl, I have some very sweet memories of my old boy, and he has this new little body to inhabit from time to time to connect with me on the physical realm. Now I know why I keep calling her Jiggs!

A Horse of a Different Hue; Healing Your Equine Partner With Color Therapy
First published in the January/February 2008 issue Equine Wellness Magazine

In the late 1970s, my equine companion Battle Sterling, a registered thoroughbred and Canadian hunter, had a red winter blanket. I hadn’t given the color much thought and can’t even remember whether or not I chose it myself, but I definitely remember what happened each fall when I pulled it out of storage and suited him up. He would spend days with his head bent around, staring at his body.

At the time, I assumed he must have been assessing how dapper he looked in his beautiful coat. But knowing what I know now, I feel he was actually soaking up the color red, a very grounding and healing hue, and obviously one he required. After a number of days, when he’d had his fill of it, he would happily go back to his normal routine.
In our day-to-day activities with our equine partners, we expose them to a myriad of colors. Each has its own specific frequency, energetic vibration, and particular healing qualities. These colors can play a dramatic role in a horse’s health and well being.

What is Color Therapy?
Color therapy is an ancient form of healing with roots in India, Egypt, and China. Originally, the term referred to treatment with colored light, but nowadays there are many additional approaches to healing with color. To understand how it actually works, and the levels it works on, it is important to have a general understanding of the equine energy field. In addition to a horse’s visible physical body, he also has a number of energy bodies, including the emotional, mental and etheric. It is on each of these levels that the vibration of color works.

Color Me Healthy

Violet detoxifies, purifies, promotes interspecies communication strengthens immune system, purifies, helps with West Nile virus

Purple soothing, calms emotions, restores balance controls fever, relieves pain
Indigo gives purpose, inspiration and protection shrinks tumours, purifies blood, tightens muscles, cleanses the system and aura

Magenta mental and emotional balance, acceptance regulates heart and blood pressure, adrenals, circulation, helps bronchial ailments
Pink happiness, joy, sensitivity, lifts spirits aids in circulation

Six Ways to Heal With Color

1. Shining light
You can simply shine an appropriately colored light in the direction of the area you are trying to heal, or in the general direction of the horse. If you don’t have a colored bulb, you can shine a regular light bulb through a theatrical color gel. This may take a bit of ingenuity to set up, but will be well worth the effort.

Hint:
Light is energy and carries a frequency, so it can have a very strong impact on our more sensitive equines.

It is important not to shine colored light directly at the eyes, or force a horse to look into the light through a color gel, as this can trigger a strong response, such as a headache, sharp pain in the eyes, or even an emotional reaction. It is also important not to confine him in a small stall for long periods where he can’t get away from the light if he desires. I recommend staying with the horse initially, or checking on him frequently, until you are completely sure of his reaction.

2. Solarize his drinking water
Take some of your horse’s regular drinking water and place it in a large glass bottle or bowl. Then set the appropriate color gel on top of it, and set it out in the sunlight for a number of hours. You can also wrap a color gel around a glass bottle, or place the water in an appropriately colored glass receptacle in the sun. Setting it in sunlight allows the vibrational frequency of the color to infuse the water and provide the imbiber with its wonderful healing qualities. Then you can simply offer it as a drink from a bucket, or add it to your horse’s existing water.

You can also purchase color essences; these are similar to flower essences, but carry the vibrational frequency of colors as opposed to flowers. They are made the same way as described above, but are pre-bottled and ready to use. Just add around ten drops to your horse’s water.

3. Outfitting your horse
When choosing tack, and even riding apparel, always be conscious of the colors you are introducing.

Hint:
I like to think of the partnership we share with our equine companions as a combination of energies -- the merging of our auras as well as the frequencies of anything else we introduce to the mix.

The colors of halters, lead shanks, blankets, saddle pads and bandages can all have an impact on performance, so it is recommended you choose them wisely based on your goals and desires for training sessions and events. Some of your steeds may require calming colors to function at the top of their game, while others may call for some extra get-up-and-go. The color of your riding apparel is also important, as any hues added to the mix will have an impact on both horse and rider.
 
4. Surround him with color
The colors you choose for feed bins, stall interiors, horse trailers and even indoor arenas also have an influence on your equine. For a particularly edgy or nervous horse, simply painting the inside of his stall a soothing green or blue will help calm him. For a low- energy ungrounded steed, the color red might be most beneficial.

5. Colorpuncture
This is a relatively new healing modality. It uses concentrating colored light pens, known as acu-light tools, on various body points (both acupuncture and other), in order to create powerful healing impulses in the physical and energetic bodies. It was developed by German scientist and naturopath Peter Mandel, who conducted over 25 years of research to develop this system. As with other forms of color therapy, each light has its own distinct frequency that relays specific information to the horse’s body. For this modality, you will most likely have to find a practitioner with the proper equipment and training.

6. Chakra colors
Another approach to color therapy is using the associated colors of the various chakras. Chakras are simply energy vortices or portals in your horse’s energy body which allow him to receive, assimilate and express life force energy. To determine which chakra is related to the specific condition you are trying to heal, you may simply pick the closest one to the problem area, or study chakras in greater depth to determine the relationship. For general wellbeing, you can treat each chakra with its associated color as a sort of “tune up” before a big event, or as a follow-up to a particular taxing time.

Chakra and Corresponding Color:
Root – red
Sexual progression – orange
Solar plexus – yellow
Heart – green
Throat – sky blue
Sensing – silver blue
Brow – indigo
Crown - purple

Whether you are dealing with undesirable behaviour, an emotional issue, or a physical ailment, color therapy might be the answer. When choosing a particular color (or colors) for your trusty steed, always remember that you know him best, and therefore you are the best one to determine what colors to use. Follow your heart and intuition, and you will rarely be led in the wrong direction. Note: Color therapy is not a substitute for good veterinary care, but can be a wonderful adjunct to it. Please see your veterinarian for any concerns you may have about your horse.

An Animal Communicator Seeks Guidance: The Ravens Answer!

Let me tell you about the day the ravens came and changed my life. I was in a quandary. Should I finally sever all ties to my main source of income for over 15 years, sell my house, and move to Sedona as my guidance was suggesting? This would involve leaving my wonderful family and friends behind, and moving far away to follow my spiritual path and pursue my heart’s desire. It would require a free fall into my full time career as an Animal Communicator and Healer, something my soul longed for and something I had been doing part time for a number of years now, and my true passion in life. After studying for 10 years, I couldn’t be more ready.

ravenI already knew the answer to my question, but that day, feeling a little unsure and somewhat fearful, I just wanted a sign, one that I couldn’t miss! Having always felt a direct link with the universe, I sat down in my office at the back of my house, and asked for a sign. Within seconds, six large ravens appeared in the huge old maple tree in my yard, and began squawking at the tops of their lungs. It took me a moment to realize they were talking to me, as being a cold winter day, all of the windows in the house were closed. I opened the door, and stood there reveling in their calls. I decided their message warranted some deeper investigation, and I went into the front room to meditate on it. The ravens followed me to the front of the house, and came to rest in my neighbour’s tree, where they continued to squawk in the direction of my window. This was an important message for me, and one they didn’t want me to miss! I acknowledged it and thanked them, and within seconds they were gone. “When you need us, just call,” was all I heard as they flew off to their next task at hand.

I knew why the ravens had come. They came to show me that I should trust what my heart had been telling me for years! Their message was that it is now time to “let go and fly.” To satisfy my “head,” or logical mind, I consulted the “Animal-Wise Tarot” deck, by Ted Andrews. I couldn’t have received a clearer message. The key teachings for raven messenger are as follows:

  • not to trust or put faith in the material world…when we focus on our spiritual
    goals, the material will be taken care of
  • this is the time to move, failure to act will create more problems now than not making any decisions or taking any action at all
  • ravens can teach us how to understand and communicate with animals; with raven, human and animal spirits intermingle and become as one
  • the appearance of raven is confirmation to proceed with healing work in the spiritual realms
  • now is the time to face our fears

To further confirm my message, I consulted the Animal Druid oracle, and learned that Raven gives the go-ahead for career expansion. Given my telepathic link to the animal kingdom, how perfect that my “sign” came in the form of communication from an animal, one I would be sure not to miss. Raven’s message reminds us that to fully experience the new, we must let go of the old. Filled with gratitude for the clear message I had received, I grabbed a box and started packing!

Ruby Tuesday

tarantulaRuby Tuesday, the name I gave to my resident tarantula friend, showed up on my porch one (Tuesday) evening in August soon after a monsoon rain. This is a time known to create movement for many desert creatures, mainly due to the fact that their homes have been flooded. At first I was quite startled, and a little apprehensive to see this huge, and I mean HUGE, spider ambling up the patio, and even more so when she climbed up my porch wall and just settled in for an evening visit. I was equally surprised when she returned the following night and settled in to spend yet another long evening with me.

A little slow off the mark here, I hadn’t even been thinking of communicating with her, but I realized there must be a higher purpose for these visits and that I had better pay attention, as Ruby was not going anywhere until I’d received her message. Once I made the connection, she just poured out the information she wanted to share with me and I took mental notes.

She informed me that my intuition was deepening and shifting to a new level and she encouraged me to use it for not just the animal realm, but all of human kind, something I am trained in, but had not been focusing on. She also relayed that a part of my life purpose is teaching others to tap into their own intuition. Interestingly enough this is something that’s been naturally occurring on its own accord. Ruby encouraged me to expand the expression of my creativity in ways greater than I was currently doing, including writing more and painting. Art is something I have always wanted to pursue, but have been hesitant to do, due to self-imposed doubts and limitations. Writing is a passion that certainly isn’t being given enough attention at the moment.

After giving me a few more messages and points taken, she assured me of the magic I would experience if I took this information to heart. I watched for her the next evening and she was nowhere to be found, she had ‘completed her assignment’ and was off on her next ‘mission’. As the Rolling Stones song goes, “Good Bye, Ruby Tuesday….”

Energy Healing for Animals

I got the call from Julie one fall afternoon. “Brule” her beloved Boxer had started to become more aggressive, to the point of snapping at everyone but her, and had been exhibiting a variety of physical symptoms. After a trip to the Veterinarian where she was assured there was nothing physically wrong with “Brule”, Julie returned home to ponder what to do next. She was in quite a quandary, as she was leaving shortly for a three week vacation, and was certain that “Brule” would not accept his chosen care giver, in fact, she feared he would scare her away. This is when I got the call. As an energy healer and animal intuitive, Julie hoped that I could help “Brule” with his troubles and thus create a more harmonious atmosphere for all concerned. How can this be done you might ask?

Like us, our four legged and winged companions are comprised of energy fields, including subtle bodies, chakras and meridians. For the purposes of this article, I will give a very brief run down of each of the above. The subtle bodies, also known as the aura consist of the following: physical body, etheric double, emotional body, mental body and spiritual body, each of which surrounds and encompasses the other, similar to that of a Russian nested doll, in a system likened to our own. The chakras which are energy portals or vortexes, that receive, assimilate and express life force energy, are similar but not identical to those of humans. The meridians, as in humans, are energy channels, which run in pairs through the body and are associated with a number of the major organs. Eastern philosophy believes that disease occurs when there is an imbalance in the meridian system resulting in an excess of energy or ch’i in one organ or channel and a deficiency in another. Acupuncture and acupressure are modalities that are often used to remedy this situation, and interestingly enough, it is believed that acupuncture was first developed for use on horses.

In a healthy animal or human, there is a delicate balance in each of these “energy systems”. Traumas, shocks or accidents, whether they are physical, or emotional, can throw this balance out of alignment, as can mental or spiritual issues. A couple of other sources of imbalance in our animal friends are geopathic stress and electromagnetic pollution. Once the energy field is out of alignment, the seeds of dis-ease are planted, and the individual starts vibrating at a lower frequency, hence attracting more energy, of that lower frequency, and starting a vicious cycle. Energy healing or vibrational medicine works with the root cause of the blockage, and clears the energy at a cellular level, thus preventing the trauma etc. from further affecting the animal. This healing work is a process and is done by accessing the animal’s higher self or soul, and working by priority via surrogate muscle testing (kinesiology) or dowsing. We work by priority, as an animal may be exhibiting one symptom, but when the priority issue is cleared, using a method, such as Body Alignment Technique, the former may automatically disappear. Then we move on to the next priority, and continue in this fashion until we reach a point where, through kinesiology, the animal’s higher self tells us that there’s nothing more to balance at this point. This doesn’t mean that more balancing or clearing can’t be done the next day, week, or month, but rather that we’ve reached a saturation point for assimilation for that particular session. We all, including our animal friends, have the ability to tap into the collective consciousness that is the universe, and this is the information that we are accessing in our sessions.

Other forms of Vibrational Healing used frequently in combination with the above are flower essences, crystals, gems and gem elixirs, essential oils, and color therapy. Each of these work on a similar level, by helping to change the vibration of the animal to that of the essence, color, crystal or essential oil, and thus encouraging healing. Everything on the planet, including living beings, is made up of energy, vibrating at different, measurable frequencies. As disease cannot be present at frequencies above certain levels, it is our aim to raise the frequency of our furry or feathered friends, and thus encourage healing.

In case you’ve been wondering, after a number of energy balances with me, and the use of a couple of flower essences, crystals and essential oils, “Brule’s” energy began to shift, and enough of a change occurred that Julie could go away and enjoy a peaceful vacation without worry. Her caregiver was able to look after “Brule” without a hitch as he had stopped exhibiting all physical symptoms.
Please Note: Energy Healing is not a substitute for good Veterinary care.

Can We Talk (with animals, that is)???

Well, the answer to that question all depends on whom you’re asking! It would be very interesting to see what would happen if we took a survey on the side of a busy downtown street. Somehow, I have the feeling that we may not be taken too seriously by the masses, at least at this point in time, anyhow. But I, for one, personally know that we’re just a heartbeat away from a time when all of humanity will know otherwise. In fact, Interspecies Telepathic Communication is our birthright. That’s right, for each and every one of us! Now I realize there may be some sceptics in the audience, but personally I have been shown, time and again, how our beloved animal friends can not only talk to us, but also listen and understand too!!! They can actually converse with us, sharing feelings, preferences, challenges, wishes and dreams, as well as negotiate on a myriad of issues affecting their day-to-day lives.

“Impossible” you may say! If this is your reaction, then you are not alone, you’re simply one of the many people that have not yet experienced an animal communication miracle. Once you have, you will become a believer, I guarantee it! These dog‘miracles’ I’m talking of, are available for each and every one of us to witness, firsthand. They are a part of our ultimate realization and re-membering of the ‘oneness’ of all. Public awareness and media attention in this field have grown recently, prompting much interest in this area. In fact, the demand is so high, that I have created a career for myself in this very exciting field…that’s right; I’m an Animal Intuitive, also known as an Animal Communicator. My job is to help out in situations where an interspecies liaison is required. I consider my role as that of healer/interpreter, one who can help facilitate ‘miracles’ and the witnessing thereof. One who can help to strengthen and enhance the human-animal-bond.

When would the services of an Animal Communicator be of use, you may wonder? My services are requested, in a number of different situations, including when our animal friends are exhibiting physical symptoms after being given a clean bill of health, to counsel dying animals and their guardians, assist with euthanasia decisions, and to consult with animals who have crossed over. I’m also called in to assist in resolving conflicts among animals, reduce stress, help out with emotional and behavioural issues, improve performance and very often just to tune in and answer some questions the guardian may have, usually in relation to the purpose of the partnership and any guidance the animal may have to offer. Some clients just want to be sure that their animal friends feel happy and loved, and enable them to have a voice in their sacred relationship. It’s important to note that the services of an Animal Communicator are never a replacement for good Veterinary care.

The miracles I referred to earlier can include cats wondrously working out their litter box woes, physical ailments and symptoms suddenly disappearing, animal friends “coincidentally” getting along harmoniously, horses becoming less “spooky”, iguanas reciting poetry, and dogs comforting and sharing with their guardians from the afterlife. The sky is the limit here. You see, our animal friends have souls and spirits, just like we do, and as you may have already noticed, they reflect pure “heart energy”, an essence that just makes us feel good in their presence. They have spiritual purposes for being with us, and lessons to teach us, sometimes more profound than we may imagine. I liken them to our spirit guides and angels. By connecting with these spirits, we open ourselves up to a whole new realm, one that has much to offer us, one that can truly change our lives.

Interview with the Intuition Center

I was just interviewed by Nigel Percy of the Intuition Center, for an audio going out to their members about my work, and I thought I would include a portion of it here as the feature article so you could find out a little more about me.

What do you currently use your intuition for?
I am an Animal Intuitive, and my focus is on helping people create better relationships with their animals, and awakening people to what I call the ‘divine mission of animals’ and the spiritual gifts that their animal companions have to share. I do quite a bit of connecting with animals that have crossed over, as I find that it can be very healing for the human companions left behind.

I also coach small business entrepreneurs such as coaches, consultants and solo-preneurs to increase their revenue, by using their own intuition and connecting to their souls divine blueprint. I provide intuitive consultations for them regarding their businesses and lives as well.

When did you first learn or know that you had some intuitive ability? At what age was it? How did it manifest? What was your reaction to it?
I think I’ve always known I’ve had it, and actually as a child just thought that everyone had the same awareness of the access to the kind of information that I had. In reality, you and I both know that they do, however not everyone has the conscious awareness that they can have access it. As a child I was very aware of the feelings of others, especially animals, one of my true loves, and I talked about them often even as a toddler. I also remember when I was 12, being in the basement of my home in Toronto Ontario, and having a visitation by my grandfather who had just crossed over, in Belfast N. Ireland, he came to me and put his hands on my shoulders and kissed me goodbye on my forehead, and there was not a doubt in my soul that it was him. I went upstairs to tell my Mother, (whose father had visited) and I was met with an acknowledgement that both she and my Granny had had interactions with spirits in the past too, so this kind of thing all seemed very normal to me.

How do you know that it is your intuition talking to you?
It’s very direct and unwavering, and very definitive, unlike my own inner voice that may waffle a bit, especially if I’m dealing with highly charged personal decisions, or issues that I have a real attachment to. My intuition also gives me a sense of relief when I get the information, almost like I can do a large exhale and relax into the knowing (like phew, that’s over with). I guess what I’m trying to say is there is a very peaceful feeling when I’m receiving and accepting intuitive information.

Do you have to do anything special, or go through a specific process in order to tap into your intuition?
Not as much anymore. I think it’s because I use my intuition on a daily basis, and as a means for making a living. For the most part, I feel very connected all the time, almost as if a narration is going on in my ear, and feelings are being felt inside my heart, in general day to day living. I do want to qualify that however, as I do seem to be able to turn it off at will, and have in place for myself a constant intention that I am grounded, centered, protected and only connected to the light.

In my classes I teach my students certain rituals such as brain integration, circuit clearing and the processes I just mentioned above as I feel that one must become very acquainted with the feeling of these, to be able to activate them at will.

Conversely, when I am being paid to connect to another being, be it human or animal, I do spend time going through the process, asking for higher self permission of both myself and the client, centering, grounding, clearing circuits, activating laterality and traveling into their ‘space’ or energy field so to speak. This is also not something I ever do outside of a consultation, otherwise I could make myself crazy being bombarded with so much information and energy that I feel I would blow my own circuits or simply burn out, not to mention that I would be invading their privacy.

Tell us about some of the most interesting things that have happened to you or that you have witnessed in relation to your intuition?
There’s so many and they’re so frequent that I almost take them for granted, I suppose I should make a list when they happen.

I’ve made a number of very lucrative business decisions and connections based on using my intuition, ones that changed my life for the better, financially and otherwise.

I’ve seen my clients using the intuitive skills that I’ve taught them, to improve their own lives, which has also been very rewarding.

I have received information from animals I’m working with, numerous times, that have subsequently been verified by scientific Veterinary testing. There is a testimonial on my website about a dog Ocean, who told me right up front, that her trouble was her duodenum, and it proved to be true and possibly saved her life.

I was on a Canadian TV series entitled ‘Going to the Dogs’ that followed the Dog Show circuit around, and the dog that I worked with energetically and intuitively, Quincy, who was trying to finish his championship, won right on camera.

I also used it for purchasing a house in multiple offers, knowing the lowest price that I could go in at, to win the auction, and yes, I did get the house, for much lower than my realtor friends thought I would!

How has your view of the world changed (if at all) since you have been using your natural intuitive talent?
I see limitless possibilities everywhere, it’s as though the ceiling has been lifted and anything is possible. It makes me feel so empowered, and that’s a good feeling to have. I suppose I also possess more self trust than some may have, as a result of it, and that certainly changes my view of the world.

Sick Fish and Other Phenomenon; An Animal Intuitive Shares

‘Hey Rose, your fish is sick!’ I heard myself saying to my art teacher. I was at my private art lesson, sitting at the table desperately trying to wrap my head around the task at hand, namely starting a new painting. As a new, aspiring artist this is something that takes up much of my concentration and usually one that leaves little room for other observations. I am however a professional Animal Intuitive or Animal Communicator and I just couldn’t ignore the strong messages I was receiving from this goldfish.

To some of you, this may sound unbelievable, but it’s true, I can feel and hear the thoughts and feelings of animals. This is a skill that I’ve worked long and hard at mastering and one that with intention, dedication and focus, can be yours. Many of my students are surprised at how quickly and easily they begin to learn. If you already respect animals as fellow sentient beings, and practice some form of spiritual discipline like meditation, that involves quieting the mind, you’re half way there.

Intuitive communication with animals opens us to a whole new world, one that can be life changing. Animals are here as teachers and healers for us. They can share information of the highest spiritual nature right down to the everyday mundane detail. How many of you have learned unconditional love and loyalty from your dog? It’s even been proven that we live longer and in better health in the presence of our animal companions. My belief is that they are continually working with our unseen energies to promote our health, happiness and well-being. They kind of function like our own personal Reiki Masters. If you stop long enough to notice, I think you’ll agree.

They can also share important information about their own health and happiness that can aid us in determining courses of action to take when it’s less that ideal. You see, when animals with a clean bill of health act out, there is always an underlying reason and when discovered and rectified, the behaviour can be eliminated. This is where our detective work starts. Again, the animals are the experts, so I just tune in and take notes. In following their advice, many of my clients have seen remarkable even miraculous changes in their animal friends. This is how it was meant to be, human beings in true communion with all of life.

Many people even start on their own spiritual paths after being initiated by their animal companions. Do you think this is a coincidence? I don’t. I truly feel that is just another one of their gifts to us. What valuable partners they make. The next time you pass by the kitty, basking in the sunlight, take the time to really see and honour the divine being in your presence. Now about that painting.
