Tips to adopt a pet "and a happily ever after" from an animal communicator 

Since October is Adopt A Shelter Dog month and tomorrow is National Cat Day, what better time than now to look at the energy and benefits involved in adopting a pet. I knowa lot of you are thinking, "Oh I know the benefits. I've read them a thousand times." 

That's great! But have they soaked in? Have you acted upon them and actually adopted a pet into your family? Can you see and feel those benefits? 

Benefits of a pet
For those who my be struggling to recall all the prescribed benefits of pet ownership, here's just a very brief list:
  • has been shown to reduce stress levels
  • improves heart condition and function 
  • empowers children's immune systems, when introduced at a very young age
  • engages Alzheimer's patients, so outburst are reduced
  • decreases levels of depression
  • companionship and exercise 
  • date magnet (funny to think about using your dog this way, but as long as this isn't your only reason for getting your furry friend, why not? Certainly can be a great ice breaker.) 

Which one is for you?
Can you see a benefit that would be a positive in your life? Doubt if anyone can say "no". In which case, perhaps you've made the decision that you should get a pet. Now comes the question of what kind? Are you a cat, dog, bunny, fish, bird or reptile person? Honestly, the animal that comes to mind first, is the one that is right for you. At least that has always been my experience. Certainly, though, keep the animal's needs in mind. If you travel a lot and can't take a dog with you, probably a cat fits you better. They need attention and love as much as you do. 

The search begins
The excitement is building as you think of the expansion to your family. The next question arises. Where's the best place to find this newest member of your family? I always strongly encourage shelters. You may search online even before you go in and the selection is wide and varied. Petfinder is a great search tool. They link to local shelters and you can get as specific as you like with your search....from age, size, gender, breed, species and any restrictions you have already (such as small children or other pets). 

Neutral energy space to the rescue!
You have found a sweetheart staring at you from your laptop and you think you may want to adopt. What do you do? First, as exciting as it is, keep an open mind. You may be sent to that shelter for a different animal all together. Go in person and meet the potential new pet? This is not easy to do with so much "take me" energy flying at you, but try to be as centered as possible. In the middle of your head, between your ears and eyes, is what is called your 6th chakra. When you are sitting in this place it is known as a neutral area. If you feel more emotional, you've dropped from this space of neutrality to your 2nd (emotions/family) chakra and most likely your 4th (heart) charka. Do not worry, shut your eyes for a few seconds and pull yourself back up into your 6th. 

From this neutral space look at this animal you've sought out. Do you see that he is a good fit for your family? This is where you use your intuition. Your knowiness. You will immediately get back, in some form, either a "yes" or "no" or maybe even some combination of the two. Such as "yes, as long as you commit to him." Or perhaps even something like "not in the current environment." Whatever the response, you have the tools to make an informed decision. If the answer is a firm "no", then look around at the other pets at the facility. Do any stand out to you? If so, repeat this same procedure. 

Everyone wants the story to conclude with "...and they lived happily ever after." This allows you to make an informed decision on a level most people never even think of using. Trust me it does work.

Halloween tricks and treats from an animal communicator

As Halloween fast approaches attention turns to "what are you going be dress up as"? Did you know that we perceived personas are already in place? You may have that friend who's "such a diva". Or a friend you think of as your therapist, because she "gives the best advice". Just as people project their personas, so do animals. 

One of the most profound animal personas I've come across was just a few of months ago. I was asked to work with a beagle both as an animal communicator and energy healer. This beagle's longtime beagle mate had justpast. He was struggling to adjust and figure out his new place without the other beagle. I looked at the surviving dog and saw he was presenting himself in a very regal manner. This was his persona. He showed me himself sitting on a king's thronewith a robe tied around his neck and a crown perched on his head. He even had a golden staff at his side. He certainly had a definite perception of who he was and what he was suppose to do. I relayed this imagery to his owner and she nearly bust out laughingsaying "you totally nailed him!"  

The problem was that when the other beagle died, who was the more affectionate, in his kingdom, peasant or servant, he was forced to learn those duties and shift his perceived persona. He has made this shift and has totally changed his perception of himself as well. Gone is most of the regal energy, with the exception of the crown. He's replaced it with this happy, playful, fun, loving, energetic almost puppy energy at times. I've talked with his owner and she has confirmed he is now affectionate and loves being an only child. No costume was needed for this crowned beagle.

However this time of year, with Halloween just a few days away, most people start to think costumes, sweets and parties. Yet in order to keep our furry fiends safe, we must also think about their safety. It's easy to forgot or overlook the fundamentals when short of time or trying to par-take in annual festivities. This will give you a quick reminder and hopefully prevent any accidents or injuries.


If you plan to dress your pet, always think safety first. Here are a few key items to remember when it comes to costumes. 
1.  There's a time limit. Costumes are just that and shouldn't be left on indefinitely or unattended. Some of those cute little garments can easily be caught on fencing, bushes or the like and leave your pet stranded or worse. 
2.  Fitting is key. On that same note, costumes shouldn't be too tight or restricting your pet so he can't move or do his normal activities. Remember his vision is limited to what's in front and some peripheral vision. He can't see that tall thing you've attached to his back. 
3. No chew factor. Accessories should be firmly attached to the garment so that it can't be easily chewed off. No need to have an emergency visit to the vet for a logged piece of mane stuck in the throat. 
4. Watch and react. Finally, if you observe your pet overheating, becoming distraught, unresponsive or otherwise not enjoying the costume you want him to wear so desperately, by all means put his safety first and get him out of it immediately! 

Just because it's yummy in your tummy doesn't mean it is for your furry friend. His system is much different than yours. Don't give in to those adorable little puppy dog eyes. An actual "dog cookie" will do him much better. Even then, remember moderation is still key. You don't want him to get sick from too many treats.

Not everyone is respectful of animals and pets, especially on Halloween. Unfortunately, our black furry friends seem to take the bulk of the abuse. If you plan to be out and can't personally watch your pets, please arrange for a safe place for them during the evening hours. 

Have a safe and happy Halloween! And here in Nevada...Happy Nevada Day!

Animal communicator or animal whisperer, do you know the difference?

I was recently at a meeting where it began with introductions by name and occupation. It came my turn and I said "Hi! I'm Terri and I'm an animal communicator and energy healer." Immediately from behind me I heard "oh, that's so cool! I've nevermeet one of those! That's one of those animal whisperers!" Of course, I chuckled to myself as the introductions continued. 

After the meeting, one of the attendees approached me and said "so you're an animal whisperer?" 

"Not exactly," I replied. As I gave a comparison of the two. 

I have been blessed enough to take a couple of week long horse whisperering (also called natural horsemanship) clinics. If you should ever have the opportunity I whole heartedly encourage you to jump at it. I promise you will never regret it. As such, I know that the foundation of horse whispering, which does translate to other animals as I've tried it, is based on physical cues. You watch the animal, you apply a little pressure and release and let the animal respond. It's from this foundation that trust between animal and human is built. There is a lot of ground work establishing this foundation of pressure, release and building trust before bum ever hits a saddle. 

Animal communication, at least the way I do it, is a lot of energy work. Looking at the aura body, cleaning it out if needed, and then asking questions or getting a dialogue established on the frequency level where that animal can best communicate. The communication is all energy, or spiritual. There is very little, if any physical involved (although I do sometimes use my physical voice as well to either reinforce the communication or relay information to the animal's owners). 

Simply put an animal whisperer works body cues and an animal communicator works the spirit cues.  
And just to complicate things a bit, an energy healer moves any energy that needs moved in the mind, body or spirit. This is super simplified, yet it is technically correct.  
This knowledge will certainly impress them at the next cocktail party.  
Please let me know if you have any questions or topics you'd like me to cover in this blog. 

Animal communication? Can you turn it off?

When someone starts talking with me about animal communication and energy healing, I can almost clock them until I get the inevitable question..."Can you turn it off?" It always makes me smile. It lets me know they're actually engaged and interested. 

Honest answer is no. However, I don't walk around listening in on communications or reading auras. I never do anything without permission. When asked to do a healing on an animal or human I must get permission from that body (either physically or spiritually,if I'm working long distance or if it's an animal) as well as from God (or the High Power or however you view Him). If at any point I get "no", I do not proceed. Simple as that. 

Now as far as just hearing in general, I have an ability to switch my frequency (like switching channels) or putting up barriers (like pulling the blinds) to drown out the ever present, as I say, white noise. This allows me to be able to focus, zero in and do my work precisely. Plus, it allows me the opportunity to not always participate, relax and rejuvenate. 

So, I may not necessarily "turn it off" per se, but I can certainly tune out.

Animal communication and aura bodies

Since I look at, and see, aura bodies, I often get asked "exactly what is an aura body". This is a great question. Every living thing has an aura body. The aura body goes from the physical body out. It is layered and the layers relate to the charkas, which are found within the physical body. 

Differences between human and animal aura bodies
The differences in the aura bodies between different beings (dog, cat, horse, human, etc...) is the number of layers. Generally, when someone is speaking of person’s aura body it is seven layers. Other animals have more layers as they have more charkas. For simplicity, let’s look at a human’s aura body, with seven layers. 

The layers of an aura body
  • 1st layer is the closest to the body and relates to the 1st (root) charka, which is our survival space. It's in this layer that the body and spirit communicate. We store all basic knowledge on how to be a human and function in this space. 
  • 2nd layer relates to the 2nd charka, which is our emotional and family space. Thus, this space often carries a lot of energy. It’s not uncommon for people to have so much energy stored here that it’s bottle necked. Interestingly, when giving an energy healing and stuck energy is moved from this space, tears will often start streaming down the healee's face as the energy is released. A great validation! 
  • 3rd layer relates to the 3rd (solar plexus) charka (see a pattern). This is our power source space. Whatever we are spending our time doing comes from this space. For example, the energy to do our daily work, parenting, hobbies, driving is reflected here.
  • 4th layer relates to the 4th (heart) charka, this is our self affinity space. How we see ourselves and project ourselves to others is reflected here. Low self esteem, means work in this area needs attention. Same for the other end of the spectrum, with pure ego based people. 
  • 5th layer relates to the 5th (throat) charka, our communication space. Feel yourself always clearing your throat as you speak? Or feel a twinge speaking to someone in particular? Maybe you get a tug in your throat when you speak to crowds? If so, you most likely have some energy in this charka translating to the 5th layer causing this disturbance.
  • 6th layer relates to the 6th charka, which is how we see the world. Are you only seeing the negative side of things? Half glass full type of person? That energy is stored in this space. 
  • 7th layer naturally relates to the 7th (crown) charka. This layer relates to how the world see you. Are you a go-to person in time of need? Do others see you as loyal, dependable and honest? Or maybe the energy you're projecting is more flighty, wishy-washy and dishonest?  You may think you are covering your weaknesses, but most likely on a spiritual level you are an open book.  

Aura colors and what does it mean
As for the colors of the aura, they can change instantly. As you decide to drop unneeded energy or as you take on new energy the aura shifts accordingly to reflect these changes. Some are very steadfast in what colors mean. Honestly, some colors generally seem to mean the same across the board. However, I like to look at the whole picture. That color in the aura may not even be yours. You may have felt a need to take it on for some reason. For instance, your child is sick, so you take on that energy in your attempt to heal. That is by no means your energy and generally you will drop the energy when the child recovers. So, to say you have red pain energy may not be accurate. Another great example of taking on a not great energy, is when a person you know and love passes. You feel grief, deep pain and sorrow, which generally hits you in your heart charka (4th), emotional/family charka (2nd) and often your power source charka (3rd). You focus on this loss. Your thoughts drift back to this person and how life is now completely different. You have most likely taken on energy, which is not your own. Drop this energy, a release is felt and you can function again. Doesn’t mean you still don’t miss this person, it just means that you have let go of energy that is not yours and you can continue on your path.

The animal connection
So, how does this relate to animals? It all relates! Animal communication, at least the way I do it, starts with looking at the animal’s aura body. I often, give the animal (with granted permission) an energy healing even before beginning the bulk of the communication. This helps release unneeded energy and allow for the communication between all participants to flow as freely and easily as possible.

Animal communication helps to mend broken heart 

Recently, I was talking with a friend who mentioned she was still heartbroken over the passing of her dog. She had to send her pup home a few years ago. I asked her if she would like to clean up the guilt she was feeling. She nearly jumped out of her skin, "Yes! Can I? Is it possible?" 

"Absolutely! I think it's best to bring in your pup and ask her to participate. Are you up to this?" 

She hesitated for a second and then said, "If she'll come, I'm willing." She was hesitant, because she felt her pup was angry with her for not doing more. With my friend's permission, I called in the cute dog. I asked her if she would talk with us. I could immediately see she was feeling hurt, betrayed. As I often do, I began with a healing. I asked the dog's spirit if I could give her a healing to move out some of her pain. She agreed. Her energy went from betrayal to happiness at the reunion. Although, still with a few questions.

I also asked my friend if she would like a healing. She wasn't sure what was possible, but she agreed. I went to work and easily helped her move out the guilt feeling she'd been carrying. She told me she felt an immediate release and the guilt was gone. 

Then the communication began between my friend and her dog. The pup forgave my friend and then proceeded to warn her about her current environment. The love between the two flowed freely with conversation going back and forth like any other old friends, who are reunited. Near the end of the session, the pup asked if she could stay with my friend and sleep on the bed that night.  
My friend, with joyful tears, all but yelled "Yes! Yes! Yes!"

The next day I heard from my friend. She was still filled with joy and said she had slept better than she had in a very long time. As of today, my friend and her pup are still going through life together. One in body, one in spirit. All because of animal communication and energy healings. It's a beautiful thing!
