How did you hone your craft?

I have been practicing animal communication and energy work professionally since October 2004. I developed these skills in 2003 while living on a farm animal sanctuary in northern Colorado. Through my studies of heart-centered meditation, Reiki, and Perelandra's Medical Assistance Program, I developed tools to help support the sanctuary animals during times of stress, illness, or transition. I began to receive specific physical sensations and intuitive hits about their needs and emotions and one day, I began to literally hear what the animals were saying. From that point on, the rescued animals offered themselves as willing teachers, helping me to trust what I heard and felt.

Can you give pet parents a tip for working with animals that you've learned as a pro?

Animals communicate primarily in images and feelings, and are very connected to these signals in their human companions. So if there's something you want your animal companion to do, or a behavior you want to change, the most effective way is to visualize the action you want, and literally feel, in your body, the emotions that that action elicits. The most common example of this is litterbox-training a cat. Once you've identified and addressed any root causes of elimination outside the box (illness, food sensitivities, aggression from other cats in the household, etc.), add visualizing to your repertoire. Instead of thinking about the times your cat has eliminated out of the box, visualize him/her going into the box, peeing, covering it, and then hopping out, and going about his/her day. The more details, the better. And FEEL how happy/relaxed/relieved this visualization makes you. Your cat will get this image and feeling. It may take some time and practice, but it can help enhance your cat's behavior, as well as the communication between you.

What is one thing you want pet parents to know about you? It can be whatev-fur you'd like!

The ability to communicate with animals is a gift I have cultivated with the understanding that I am to use it to help animals by strengthening the connection people have with them. Our relationships with our animals are always very complex and some people tell me that they're afraid of what their companions have to say about them. I say don't worry! The mere fact that you're interested in hearing what your companion has to say means that there's already a positive bond between you. Anything (s)he says will only serve to make your relationship stronger. Animals may be stressed or angry depending upon what is happening in their household, but with your help and openness, animal communication will address these issues and find ways for both of you to be happier together. I am always considerate of an animal's boundaries. All communication and energy work is conducted with absolute respect for the animal's highest good.
