This week Mystic Mag had the opportunity to sit down with Faye Rogers, an animal communicator from New Zealand. She was kind enough to answer a few of our questions and share her experiences and knowledge with us.
Could you tell us a bit about yourself and how did you start communicating with animals?
Thank you for the amazing opportunity to share with your readers a little bit about myself and animal communication. I always find it difficult to chat about myself, but here it goes. I live in Canterbury, New Zealand. Animals have ruled my life since I was little, I have an adult daughter. I have a Certificate in Environmental Management, also a Certificate in Basic Animal Care Science. I am a Qualified Teacher from the Diana Cooper School (UK) in Angels and also Ascension. And over the years, I have undertaken various healing modalities & qualifications.
Also, because of the animals, I became involved with Nutrigenomics, and I became a consultant; I am on the company’s Field Advisory Board for NZ along with an NZ doctor. Since 2012 the animals would share about our flagship product (which would also come up in people’s soul journey work) but it wasn’t available here in NZ which caused me heaps of frustrations. Because of this, I stepped into the role of a consultant & I started bringing the flagship product over from the USA to share around, nowadays much easier as the company is global and they have distribution centres worldwide and our products are shipped from people’s countries’ distribution centres to their homes. Animals are amazing teachers – from my beloved childhood animals to the many animals that have graced my adult life, and the wildlife species that I have encountered. In my early 20s, I had my first litter of Irish Wolfhounds, and 10 prem puppies arrived 9 days early & they all survived, don’t ask me how they survived but they did, and I sure learnt a lot.
I have always had the ability to hear/feel what the animals are sharing, but what led me to animal communication I was having issues with a puppy (he was the last puppy to be born in my last litter of Irish Wolfhounds) and because of him, I put up my hand for an animal communication workshop. The workshop validated what I was receptive to. I then undertook an Intermediate Animal Communication Workshop and this gave me the courage to step out and announce to the world that here I am that I love animals so greatly and that I am open to what they have to share, and to share their insights & wisdom with their families. I certainly put in plenty of practice – late nights, early mornings & weekends practising animal communication & healing – I wasn’t charging for my time & I communicated with over 400 animals in 3 years, I had at the time a full-time business, and I was on various local community committees and dog club committees, also my family (humans & animals) commitments.
After 3 years of putting in a lot of practice, I made the decision to walk away from having a mainstream business and I dedicated myself to my calling of communication/healing/workshops and this is when I started charging for my services.
What services do you offer?
My clients are worldwide, and I offer Animal communication, Healing for Animals & People, Workshops on Healing/Spiritual/Animal Communication, Soul Exploration Journeying, Akashic Records Readings, Property Clearances, and Nutrigenomics. More information can be found on my website: www.animalcommunication-newzealand.com
Could you give us an example of one of your sessions? Could you tell us more about the way you communicate with an animal?
As mentioned my clients are worldwide, and with animal communication sessions, I either do these as written transcripts or via zoom or in-person. Nowadays, I pen in a max of 6 clients a week (which includes one urgent) as this allows me to focus on one animal at a time.
Well-being communications are usually written transcripts, and I work with the direction the animal knows is best, either connecting once or connecting a few times, if connecting a few times which could happen on the same day or over a couple of days. The reason for connecting a few times could be that the animal has asked for healing during the session and wants time out to process the healing, or wants time out to look deeper.
Whereas for Animals in Spirit, in a session I usually only connect once, and my preference is for either zoom or in-person, so that the family can be involved, and the family receives messages of love, wisdom, and also healing.
General Communications are usually zooms or in-person. When working with people, if working with the Akashic Records, once I have entered the Records, I will take notes, and then organise a zoom session. Soul Exploration Journeying is either via zoom or in-person. Healings are either remote or in-person. My recent client sessions have been supporting animals & people that have been impacted by Zealand’s national disaster Cyclone Gabrielle.
For myself when communicating with an animal, I connect with an animal, and we will then energetically hang out getting to know each other before the actual sharing happens. When the sharing happens, I will receive from the animal: smells/tastes/noises that the animal can hear/visuals/emotions and oodles of words and we will have a running commentary on their insights/suggestions/wisdom. The animals are never shy about sharing. I mentioned that one of my own dogs led me into the path of being an animal communicator, and from him, I have recorded a manuscript ‘Footsteps’ of over 190,000 words, and when the time is correct Footsteps will be published.
What is the most important detail in maintaining a relationship of mutual trust with customers?
If the animals didn’t trust me they would not share at the depth they do, and after the session, I have no retentive memory of what an animal has shared – here is an example, at one of my first away teaching workshops one of the attendees rushed up to tell me that what her horse had predicted came true, I had no idea what she was chatting about but her beautiful horse had shared that her father was going to surprise her by a certain date with the gift of her dream home.
I do have a social media presence [www.facebook.com/FayeRogersAnimalCommunicator] & a regular free newsletter, usually, I only publish what my animals share, though occasionally I will ask permission from a family if I can publish what their animal/s have shared – I don’t broadcast on social media that I am working with such & such or such & such has an issue or share about an outcome and maybe this makes my social media page a bit dull but it is out of respect to the animals and families concerned.
When working with people, I have the same principle, that out of respect nothing is shared with others.
In this field, it is often thought that word-of-mouth and personal recommendations are very important – is this true?
When I first started working as an animal communicator, I advertised a couple of times in magazines, but what drove my business was word of mouth, support from friends & family, and over the years I have had tv/newspapers/magazines/interviews and a small documentary that has been funded by NZ Film Commission & NZ on Air.
What do you love most about your profession?
Because of my profession, I am a better person. I love being the voice of animals and the changes that happen for the animal/s & their family/ies and the pay-it-forward effect. We, humans, are becoming more compassionate & aware because of the animals – the animals are master teachers leading us humans into spectrums of possibilities, wisdom, oneness & unconditional love.
