Blog and tails of an animal communicator


What to look for when choosing an animal communicator

Maybe you've been intrigued by the idea of an animal communicator talking with your furry friends. You want to know what they have to say or perhaps you have a specific issue or question you want addressed. You're ready to take that next step and find the right animal communicator for you. How do you choose? Here's a few things to consider when doing your research:

1. Internet or Facebook. Read their site, what they post and get a feel for who they are as a person as well as a communicator. 

2. Read their "about me" page. This should give you a good idea as to who would be doing the communication. Is it one specific person or a rotation of people? Do they have much of a history working with animals? Sometimes a lot is said in what isn't said. Do they seem genuine? Do they work in other modalities as well, such as horse whispering, energy healing, Reiki, acupuncture, massage, etc? 

3. Read their testimonials. Do they seem genuine? If you have any questions, contact the animal communicator and ask if you can speak with a few prior clients. This shouldn't be an issue if they are an honest an genuine practionceer. However, if they have never been asked to provide this before, you can expect a day or two while they make certain clients are ok to speak openly about their experiences. 

4. Read the "what to expect" page. If they have a what to expect page, read it. Do they only do communications in-person? Or will they work also by phone, Skype or the like? What do they expect from you? What can you expect?

5. Call the animal communicator. You can detect more in a phone call than any other method.     
  • Are you comfortable speaking with this person?     
  • Now's the time to ask any question you uncovered during your research.     
  • Ask how long they've been a communicator. You may already know the answer from your research, but it's good to hear it from the person directly. If there's any difference, then ask why. Some of us have been communicating for a lifetime, but only recognized we were worthy of pay recently. That is ok.     
  • Ask if there is any follow-up.     
  • Ask about some of the communications that the person has received and the outcomes. Often this can be very telling as to the effectiveness of the communicator.     
  • The most important question to ask is if you and your furry friend are good candidates to receive a communication. If you are not in the right space for whatever reason, or if a pet trainer would better meet your needs a good, honest and genuine animal communicator will tell you. 
6. Reflect. You've now gathered all your information. Who made you feel most comfortable, had the most to offer, answered all your questions and seemed most genuine? That would be your animal communicator. I wish you great communications! 

I hope this helps weed the good out from the bad for those looking for an animal communicator. If you have any questions or suggestions for a future blog, please contact me. Until next time may you and your furry friends have happy chats with lots of love and laughter. 


You said it and then ....
An animal communicator fixes misperceptions

Perceptions. Have you ever noticed how you can say one thing and it’s interrupted different ways by different people? You may think you’re being perfectly clear. However, what you say from your side of the fence is often received very differently on theother side of the fence.

Here’s a case in point. I was recently called to work with two dogs. Same type of dog. One male, one female dog. The female is about a year older. They are even siblings. The issue was that the female was completely over dominate. So much so that the owners had a difficult time pushing pass the little female dog to get to the male dog to pet him, give him cookies and his "loves". 

I sat with the two dogs. I asked the little female dog why she was doing this and she said "I’m the best. She says so. The best comes first. The best gets the best. I’m the best. Right?" 

I turned to the owner and said, "do you tell her she’s the best?" With a look of shock, she said "yes". Pressing her hand to her heart she went on to explain "but we say ‘she’s the BEST GIRL and He’s the BEST BOY!" 

I told her, she’s not hearing anything other than she’s "the best" all the rest is falling on deaf ears and the perception to her then has become she is the best. Therefore, he doesn’t matter as much and he gets whatever is leftover. She continued to be shocked at my intimate knowledge of their relationship. 

I moved out all the "I’m the best" energy. Then I suggested that they not use that phrase for either dog anymore. Instead I recommended they try "good girl" and "good boy". By the time I left, the little girl dog was already standing backing and letting the little boy dog be loved. 

I received a call a few days later from the owner. Her voice bounced with excitement!  She explained "it’s like we have two new dogs." The "best" phrase was abolished and harmony had settled into the house. The over dominate alpha dog was replaced with a playful one, who let her brother have food and love too. That was several months ago and the dogs are still in a harmonious energy

This just goes to prove that even though you may think you’re saying and doing the right things, they may not be perceived as you would wish. Our animals are very quick to pick up on what we put out for them either physically, verbally or energetically. Is your furry buddy doing something that has you mystified? Perhaps it’s a misperception of your two worlds. An animal communication session can help clear up these miscommunications and bridge the language gap. Want to know more about how it can help you? Just go here for the details.

Until next time, may you and your furry and non-furry family be healthy and happy.

Questions to an animal communicator

I receive questions all the time about animal communication. The questions at times can be far ranging. Here are just a few that pop up regularly. Hopefully, they answer your questions as well. If not, drop me a line. I love inquisitive questions about animal communication and energy. They are subjects I can go on about for days.

What is animal communication?
An animal communicator is simply someone who is able to speak with animals generally on an energy or telepathic level. Validation comes as the animal tells things that the communicator could not know. 

How do you talk with animals?
I suspect most animal communicators do it fairly similarly. We tune into the frequency at which that animal is emitting energy and then begin a conversation. Sometimes my communication is both unspoken and spoken as someone going in and out of two languages and not even thinking about it. 

What do they sound like?
Each animal I speak with sounds distinctly different. Some of the voices they have are very surprising. In fact, my childhood dog was a medium sized terrier. Cute little dog. But the voice he had sounded like he’d been up all night drinking whisky and smoking cigars. Super gruff voice. Sounded like he was speaking from his toes. He also spoke with a lot of profanity, which sounded about right to me. After all he was a terrier. Although, it was hysterical to hear such words come from this cute little dog.

What kinds of things do they say?
The kinds of things the animal may want to talk about can be wide and far in scope. Anything from concern over the owner, to why he’s not going on his regular walk, to what happened to his friend who may have died but no one told him, to even asking for more of a certain kind of food or even (as several dogs have said) "want fun". The last one can lead to behavior issues when they are left to their own devices to create their own version of "fun". These are generally the high energy, young dogs that need a lot of exercise and mind stimulation. 

What got you started with your communications?
This question one I get rather often. I didn’t grown up in a bed of roses, as it were, and I would often would turn inwards and to my animals for comfort. My animals have always meant a safe place for me. They don’t judge. They accept and love. Something we can all learn and gain from that kind of knowledge and acceptance. As I spent more and more time with my animals, the bonds became even stronger and I could feel their connections and their words. Later I pursued a path to strengthening these connections through a some classes. The doors then flung open and I’ve never looked back. I keep looking for new ways to help and new tools to add in my endeavors to help. I’ve had a quest for knowledge with energy and animals. I’ve known since I was abut 5 years old that I would devote my life to helping animals. I just didn’t know how or have all the puzzle pieces at that point. The puzzle became clear last summer and that’s when Yes! Animals Talk was launched. 

Are there any animals that don’t talk?
I have not meet an animal that is unwilling to speak. I will walk outside and the bunnies will even say "hello". The lizards, in the summer, will tell me how nice the sun feels. The quail will boost about their babies. The deer will tell me how yummy the moist leaves taste. It’s really a remarkable thing being able to hear what is being said amongst the animals. However, being able to partake in the conversation for a brief moment is a true honor.

If you have any questions, please be sure to send them along and I’ll address them in a future blog. 

Until next time, may you and your family (including your furry family) be warm and healthy. 


The healing power of animals .... Rescuing a pet could be what the doctor orders

Have you ever had a bad day, been greeted by a wet nose and happy face at your front door, and immediately felt better?

Maybe this sounds familiar? You're watching a scary or sad movie on TV, your furry buddy hops up beside you, perhaps gives you a wet kiss, you start stroking his fur and suddenly you don't feel as much anxiety?

Or you've been really sick. Maybe you've been curdled up in bed as you recover and your furry friend is right beside you. If you move, he looks up at you to make sure you're alright. He often needs to touch you, to be connected as a parent would to a sick child. 

The healing power of animals is unmistakable. 
* They can shift and calm energy. Which is why they are brought into to hospitals, rehabilitation centers and even funeral homes. 
* They can also lower blood pressure and heart rates.
* They can ease and reduce stress, which is why we feel better when we connect with them after a tough, stressful day.
* They help build self esteem.  They love unconditionally, which is always great for helping anyone's self esteem. In fact, there is some evidence that service dogs used for depression are so successful that prescription medication is reduced or no longer needed. 
* They help with building relationships. Going to a dog park or on a walk often means there is time for the "parents" to talk.
* They encourage you to exercise and engage in the world, which is good for both mind and body.
* They are often charters, which means laughter and that's always good for mind, body and soul.
* Lastly, if you rescue an animal then, they are very appreciative. They know you rescued them. They seem to have a need to repay the "debt" of rescuing. How many times have you read or seen an story about a rescue pet that saved a family from a house fire, home intruder or alerted others to a non-breathing child? Rescuing a dog, cat, horse or other animal is a wonderful idea. You save them and then they save you. It gives you a good feeling of having done a good deed, yet you benefit. If you're suffering from depression or low self esteem you've just kicked started your endorphins without popping one pill. It's a win-win and a start to a beautiful relationship.

If you, a family member or someone you know is depressed, sad, disconnected or needs a bit of healing, maybe rescuing a pet is a good prescription. At least it's something to consider. 

Until next time may you and your family (including your furry ones) be healthy and happy.

Love your furry friend, talk with him

We love for our animals. They greet us when when we arrive home, help us with chores around the house, go for walks with us, sleep alongside us and often know things no one else does. They share our happy moments. Our sad ones too. They comfort us with a wet nose and hug when the blues hit or cuddle up with us when a scary movie comes on TV. They become almost like our furry counselors. They don’t need to say a word. All is translated through a look, a nuzzle or a touch. We know they understand. Or at least we need to believe they do. With each story, cuddle and secret told the love grows.

As the love grows, science shows our health improves too. Studies prove that just by having an animal as part of our families, our lives improve by the following ways:
  • Decreased doctor visits, betterhealth 
  • Improved immune health and decreasedallergies 
  • Improved mental health, less depressed and better at handling life changes
  • Improved heart health 
  • Promote activity and exercise 
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Better social skills
  • Decreased work stress
  • Cancer detection 

At this point you're probably thinking, "Wow! I’m sure glad we have a furry family member." Yes, life certainly would be different without at least one furry friend. They also, enjoy our company. Have you asked if your furry buddy loves you as much? There are some proven scientific signs that can reveal some of his feelings. For instance if you answer yes to any of the following he certainly loves you:
  • Cuddles with you after eating 
  • Sleeps with or near you 
  • Misses you when you leave
  • Happy to see you when you return
  • You love him

While these signs are a good start, wouldn’t it be great to take them even further? Have you ever wondered what your furry friend really, truly thinks or feels about you? Does it baffle you when he stares and twists his head? Are you perplexed why he wants out and then right back in, then turns to you and looks as if you should know the game that’s being played? Well, you can have your answers. You can simply ask him. How do you ask? By using an animal communicator you can ask your friend all sorts of questions that have you puzzled. Like: 
  • Why do you leave toys in my left shoe?
  • Do you think of me as mom/dad?
  • Why must you always bark at the same person everyday?
  • Why do you sniff butts?
  • What’s so scary under the bed?
  • Why are cars so much fun?

Really, whatever has been on your mind, you may ask. He’ll answer. Sometimes the answer is simple. Sometimes shocking. Sometimes silly. But there’s always an answer. Why not just ask? That's what animal communicator do.

Interested? Contact me for more information or to schedule an appointment. 

Until next time, may you and your family (including furry ones) be happy, healthy and warm.

What can an animal communicator do for me?

I often get greeted with "I don’t know exactly what you do, but my dog does the strangest thing. Do you think you can help?" 

I’m certain your furry friend does something odd that makes you think, "what on earth are you doing? Have you lost your mind!? Do you even have a mind!?"

Here’s just a brief list of some behavior owners have found odd:
  • pees when certain people arrive, not scared just overly excited
  • throws up as soon as too many people approach
  • hides when people approach, but otherwise super calm and happy
  • calm and happy until it’s time for people to leave and then goes nuts with anxiety
  • stares at blank spots in the room as if something is there
  • runs figures eights in the back yard
  • overly attached to one person and mopes when that person is gone
  • thinks he’s a human rather than a dog or cat
  • throws up as soon as he gets in the car or does anything he doesn’t want to do
  • crawls under the covers of the bed when you’re trying to make it
  • likes to lick your toes until you swear they’re prunes
  • finds it fun to hide toys in your shoes
  • brings you treasures from around the house and outings as gifts
  • decorates her litter box with various items
  • likes to mimic you when you talk
  • regardless of how many toys and deterrents you buy, he still insists on digging a hole to China
  • chases planes that fly overhead
  • will only walk on one side of the road 
Still asking yourself what an animal communicator can do for you? Wouldn’t you like to know why your buddy does these weird acts? If there was an easy solution to help remedy, if needed, wouldn’t it be worth it? 

For instance, when asking the cat who crawled under the covers every morning "why" she simply replied "I’m cold and it’s warm." Easy fix for this problem was to place a bed for her next to the heat register. She’s happy and mom can make her bed in peace. 

Generally, speaking for each odd behavior, there’s a very logical solution. Ask why and then find a solution, if needed. That’s what an animal communicator does. Sometimes there’s a bit of negotiating involved, but there’s always a solution. 

Now, that I’ve explained a bit about what an animal communicator is, what would you like to know about your furry friends?

That’s it for this time. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions for a future blog, please contact me.

In the meantime, may you and your furry ones have a wonderful week.

"Doing better" with our furry family as told by an animal communicator 

One of my all time favorite quotes is by Maya Angelou. It is the quote you see beside this blog. "Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better." It is such a beautiful, insightful saying. We should all striveto do ourbest. Then when we gain more knowledge do even better with that new knowledge. Yet, as I saw Dr. Angelou say many times never live in the past. Don't beat yourself up over what you didn't know, but once you know then take the necessary and properchanges to get on the right course. 

Recently, I worked with a very nice family with two dogs looking to get a new puppy. The dogs were both very sweet, gentle beings. Among other communication requests, the parents wanted me to prepare both dogs for the new puppy. I worked with the younger dog first. Her main request with regard to the puppy, was to have veto power in case she and the other dog just didn't care for the new one. The parents said that was not an option. I suggested taking both dogs to meet the puppy prior to bringing it permanently to live with them. In doing this initial meeting this way, on neutral ground, rather than having a new puppy forced on the two established family dogs and the parents telling all three "get along and make it work," the energy shifts. It goes from a puppy invading and taking over to the "whole family" pick inking and being including in the process. Totally different energy. The mom sat back and said, "I never thought of it that way. Yes! We will let them go with us to pick out the puppy." The dog was happy. The parents saw things in a new light and are doing even better.

Then I moved onto the more mature dog. Her first communication was an apology. She said, "tell them I'm sorry I'm not as good as 'Rose'" (the younger dog). The parents, through no fault of their own, praised Rose for feats that "Amy" (the more mature dog) never even thought to achieve. Those acts were simply not on her radar. When Rose performed such acts, the parents raved. I conveyed Amy's comment and the mom burst into tears. She said, "I always tell Amy she's the prettiest dog." I said, "yes but you just said Rose is the best dog, correct? They understand the difference between surface and substance." 

Amy continued and said, "the puppy is my replacement." I told the parents her communication. Both parents gasped, mom's tears flowed and she sheepishly whispered "it is".  

I said to them if you've spoken verbally of a replacement the problem becomes Amy starts mocking that up so as not to disappoint you. Amy had been having a few peeing accidents inside, which the vet didn't find any medical issues for at this point. However, when I looked at the issue, I saw it was fear of having to let go to make room for the puppy. I moved out the fear. Then I said if you don't want Amy to move on, then I suggest you look at the puppy as an addition to the family, not a replacement. I suggested they reconfirm with Amy on a physical, verbal level that they want her to stay for as long as possible and the puppy is only an addition. I communicated all this to Amy on an energy level as well. The dad immediately started telling Amy they needed her to teach the new puppy the routine of everything and how to be in the "pack", just as she had does so brilliantly with Rose.

They knew better and were beginning to do better. I could see shifts already taking place within Amy. 

I looked at the mom. She was riddled with guilt, as she held Amy's paw gently and wiped the tears from her face. Then, as I often am, I remembered Maya Angelou's quote. I told her they do a great job and reminded her now they have more knowledge and can do better. But not to feel guilty about not knowing what you don't know, just let go, let be and move forward doing better. I love that quote from Dr. Angelou. It's a guiding force in my life. Don't beat yourself up for what you didn't know. But once you know it, then shift and move forward with the new knowledge. Thank you Dr. Angelio for this wonderful, insightful saying. I hope you find this quote helpful and inspirational to you. 

Until next time, may you and your family (including furry ones) stay warm and healthy.

Consistency - a key to a happy furry family as told by an animal communicator 

Consistency. It seems so simple. You do something and then just keep doing it. However, if you have cute puppy dog eyes staring up at you, it's easy to cave. You may think it's not a huge deal to occasionally bend the rules. Yet by doing so you creategrayareas.Or in your furry family member's world .... confusion energy. While you may live within areas of black, white, gray and the whole entire rainbow, your fur balls do notfunctionin thesame manner. They can generally only grasp black and white, yes and no. There are no shades of grays or maybes. It either is or isn't. 

Here's an example: You don't want you furry family on the couch. So, you teach them "off". However, you start watching a scary movie alone or you break-up with your boyfriend. Suddenly you think "I sure would love to cuddle with Fiddo on the couch. I'll break the rules. He seems to have mastered that anyhow." 

Fiddo thinks "Wait you told me no. Now you say yes? Ok I get to be on the couch again. Yea!" Several days later you walk and find Fiddo sound to sleep on the couch. You get frustrated. "What! You know you're not allowed on the couch!" You just created complete confusion for Fiddo. You're mad at him and he doesn't understand why when you said it was fine to be on the couch the other day. 

Here's another example: It's cold outside you don't feel like walking Fiddo so you think "Oh I know I'll play ball with him inside. Generally this is a no-no, but there's 3' of snow outside. I'll make an exception." Fiddo is happy to play or maybe he hides for fear it's a test, because he knows this is not allowed. You ended up convincing him it's ok to play and you both have fun. Now fast forward to later that evening. You're fixing dinner and Fiddo bounces through, throwing his favorite toy high in the air landing in the middle of your nearly prepped fried chicken. You scream as the hot oil splashes out of the pan and yell "Fiddo! NO toys inside! You know better!" Fiddo is completely confused. Once again you're mad at him and he doesn't understand why when you played with him and his toys inside a few hours earlier.

While it's easy and convenient for us at times to break the rules we've set for our fur family, it ultimately causes confusion. We may not even recognize it because it's so subtle. 

For instance, in the early morning, when the neighbors are still asleep, you tell Fiddo to be quiet. However as the day goes on, you encourage more noise from him. Very subtle, yet the confusion is registered just the same. You're mad one time and not the next. 

Next time when you want to break a rule "just this once" ask: 
Is it worth the confusion?
What would the long term effects look like? 
Or if you really want to break the rules, then is it even a necessary rule at all?

Our furry family wants to please us, but it's difficult for them to do it if the rules change or there are shades they just don't understand. 

Consistency is key to a happy furry family. Think what you need from your fur balls, what rules are a must and then make sure the whole family follows them so there is consistency. Sometimes it even helps to post the rules on the fridge. Then everyone knows for certain what they are or aren't and those cute puppy dog eyes will be at peace.

Until next time may you and your family (including the furry ones) be safe and warm. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions for a future blog, please contact me.
