Unlike Dr. Doolittle, I do not go around talking to every animal I see.  First of all, I follow a strict code of ethics that includes the directive that I do not talk to an animal without permission. 

People ask me what it is like to have animals talking to me everywhere I go.  Well...it’s not like that.  If you are walking down the street or at the mall, you don’t talk to everyone you see.  In fact, you might not even pay attention to them.

There is a very good reason for this.  First of all, I do not have the right to interpret just any animal’s behavior or purpose and certainly do not have the right to interfere with it.  If I witness animal abuse or other issue, the opportunity to do something about it will present itself because the animal allows that to happen.  I will be close enough to speak up or report it. 

Sometimes, the lesson is just for you.  Sometimes it is a story that crosses the country via news media and the internet - a lesson for many.  The point is...do you care?  Do you have compassion?  Are you able to send love and appreciation for that animal’s lesson for all of us?

The way we treat animals is a reflection of the way we relate to the world.  If we mistreat the basic aspects of life, we can not cherish life.

I have a very wise, old cat named Frasier (now 17 years old) who has been with me before.  I know that he is in my life to help me with this journey that I am on - specifically to teach me how important is is to live in the ‘Now”.

Several years ago, when I became concerned about my lack of ability to talk with my own animals, he stepped up.  It was my inability to stay in the present moment for an extended time that became the issue.  He wanted me to know that I could communicate with him every day if I would become disciplined in this awareness.

He got my attention all right - he disappeared!  I was not really worried at first.  After all, it was springtime and the weather was nice.  However, by the second day, I realized that this was not normal behavior for him, so I sat down to meditate.  The message was loud and clear - ‘I’m OK, I left for a reason, but I’ll be back’.

By the fourth and fifth day, my concern started to overshadow his reassurance.  Back to meditate - the message was the same - “I’m OK, I left for a reason, but I’ll be back’.

Well, after the first week went by, I was sitting down every day for this reassurance and realizing that I was, indeed, communicating with my own cat!  That’s great, but how long would this go on? 

By the end of the second week, I was at my wit’s end.  I remember sitting down to meditate just before bedtime and frantically telling him that I had to know if he had passed,  I assured him that I GOT IT!  I knew what I had to do to communicate with him, but I really couldn’t do this any longer.  PLEASE....

Two hours later, I heard a noise.  I got up, and a very self-satisfied Frasier was looking quite well and having a little snack!

If you ask any animal telepath, they will tell you that the hardest thing to do is to communicate with your own animals....and definitely not for yourself.  All of the people and animals that are in our lives are there for a reason and if you could learn just by asking, our lessons would not be experienced. 

If I have an issue with my own animals, I usually call on a fellow animal communicator to help...it’s much easier and far more productive.  (And it is reciprocal)  When it comes to receiving specific information, I feel that I am too close.  It is hard to be objective because interpretations sometime get confused with my personal feelings.  This is never a problem when I speak with animals that I don’t know and don’t live with. 

This simply reinforces the fact that every animal is in our life for a reason, and the lessons to be learned must be lived. 

Think back to the circumstances that existed when you brought an animal into your life.  Do you think that you made the choice?  Think again.  You were in the right place for a reason...and so was the animal.

Many people wonder if their animals understand what they say.  My answer is absolutely!   While they do not understand every single word we say, keep in mind that you can not communicate in words if you don’t know their meaning.  The meaning of the word is what you project - not the word itself.

Some Communicators receive mostly pictures and/or feelings.  When I communicate with animals I get the majority of information in words.  The ‘message’ is translated into words through my guides.  If the animal has difficulty with a concept, I’ll sometimes get pictures to help me interpret their meaning.  In order to expedite the process and get me on the right path, my guides often give me a vision or symbol that relates to something in my life. 

For example, i was talking to a cat during one of my galleries and my guides sent a ‘picture’ of my dog’s basket of toys.  I was then able to focus in on the cat’s concern about her toys.  While talking to another dog, they sent a vision of a dog I know that is a lovable old goofball and I could feel his personality. 

Some animals are exceptional communicators.  They can cut out the ‘middleman’ and actually show me what they do...almost like watching YouTube! 

So, please do not hesitate to talk to your animal companions.  They’re listening!

A Wise Appaloosa

I love to visit barns.  Horses are so easy to talk to....in fact, it was a couple of horses that initiated this wonderful journey that I am now on.  They were actually yelling at me...who could ignore that?

Horses are the very spiritual and have taught me so much.  I remember one barn that I visited some time ago where I learned a valuable lesson.  There were four horses...two dark bays, an appaloosa and a small roan.  I was there to evaluate one of the bays - he had issues with the other horses. 

It was going well, but I was getting more information from the appy, including the fact that someone around there was prejudice.   During my discussion with the owner, it came to light that it was ME!  And sure enough, I had always favored dark colored horses.  This wise old soul, who was light colored with a white spotted back, called me out on it.  We have all heard the saying ‘don’t judge a book by it’s cover’ - it took a horse to give it meaning for me and I will never forget it.
