Is it real? Yes, it is
real. Animals have told me physical things that were confirmed by X-rays, ultrasounds, blood tests, and manual palpation by
vets, chiropractors, acupuncturists, and others. Anatomical charts help me name physical things the animals show
me, so the client can ask the vet about it. Things animals have told me about life events, physical objects in their environment,
layout of house and landscape, etc., have been confirmed by clients.
What about proof?
The best proof is for me to work directly with you and your animal.
It helps to be open-minded. Being focused on proof is putting the cart before the horse. If you wanted to know if someone
could drive a car, no amount of talking about it would prove it to you. You would want to see them do it. Listen to what
I hear from your animal first, then decide if it is true. Wondering whether I’m for real or not is taking focus off
of the animal. If you can listen to what is coming from them first, and assess that for authenticity, it won’t matter
so much what I do. I am not the point here, this is about the connection between you and your animal.
How do you do
it? I do it by a practiced form of
awareness of physical and energy sensations. This is very much highlighted by using Reiki, a form of energy work. Modern physicists
say, and I believe, that there is an underlying holographic field that connects everything. Through the Reiki, I become more
sensitive to that field. Because the field is everywhere, I can work over the phone and the animal need not be present with
me or you. Then I can share the feelings, thoughts, and sensations the animal wishes to communicate. The animal
will show me sensations they are feeling, either in my hands or sometimes an ‘echo’ in a specific area in my own
body. Because my sensations are so strong, I often start with describing their physical feelings. This gives them a little
chance to get used to talking with me, and from there I can work into other areas.
Why should a vet
try working with an animal communicator? Most
often I work directly with the client and the animal. But there are definite advantages for the vet, even if the report is
third hand from the client's notes of our session with the animal. Is it possible that a vet's reliance on only what
he or she can personally observe could be a limited picture? After all, that’s why they use standard medical tests,
like X-rays and blood tests. The animal communicates to me what they feel (symptoms). If a report of the symptoms
is available, shouldn't the vet get that report? Even a second hand report from me, which could be inaccurate or incomplete,
would be for the vet to assess, just as an MD does with a human patient. It is not necessary for you or the vet to believe
in animal communication, telepathy, or clairvoyance in order to assess the results. You have all your time with the animal,
and the vet has all their training, skills, and experience, to decide if animal communication is helpful. Why not
try it, rather than assuming (without proof) that it is not possible?
Will my animal
tell you embarrassing things about me? Usually
not. They have a sense of what you are comfortable sharing, because they notice when you get tense. If you do, they tend to
avoid that area. Also some things that are embarrassing to you don’t even show up on their radar, so they would never
even think to bring it up. They are too busy talking about what matters to them.
How many sessions
does it take? Most often we do
one session. Within that time, we discuss what might help the physical or behavioral situation. I often give referrals to
other practitioners (traditional, alternative, and holistic). If you follow through, it is much more likely to help. I offer
a free 10-minute check-in after an hour session (same animal, same issue), in case a brief follow-up will help work things
out. Sometimes clients check back with me several times a year, for ongoing support or when new issues arise. In a few cases,
usually with very ill or dying animals, I provide more frequent support. At those stressful times, it may be harder than usual
for you to hear what they are saying. I work both to support the animal directly, and to let you know where your insight
and communication is accurate, so you can trust your own awareness as much as possible.
