Can you describe your experience and background in providing Psychic and Animal Communicator services?
My animal communication dates back to my childhood. I have always talked to animals. My professional experience dates back to 2000 when I started reading humans and animals professionally after my near-death, out-of-body experience. I was in a white cloud about 4 feet off the ground and just to the right of my body. I got to watch the paramedics work on my body, trying to bring it back to life. (This is a whole story by itself.) When the other side sent me back, I came back with my psychic gifts. I started reading people after going to a psychic school to help me develop these gifts. I can communicate with animals through telepathy, which is their natural way of communication, I feel their pain and emotions. I help humans and animals understand each other.
I feel the biggest mistake an animal communicator can make is to put human feelings and emotions on an animal. Don’t get me wrong, animals have feelings. They feel physical and emotional pain, they feel love, sadness, upset, grief, and everything else we feel but they feel it from their perspective not from the human perspective.
We have to remember that animals don’t think like humans or they would be humans. They see things from the animal kingdom, not the human kingdom so events and issues can be viewed and experienced very differently. An example is when an animal has run away. Humans want to know why they just don’t come home. Here are several reasons why.
First, they are out in the open and their survival instincts kick in very quickly. They are only thinking about surviving.
Second, there are all kinds of smells that get in their way of coming home.
Third, they might really be lost and can’t find their way home.
I do try to find lost animals but humans need to remember I can only give them the information the animal is sending me. Also, animals know that if they are sending out fear, there is a smell to it and any predator can and will smell it and look for them. I do readings every day so my experience is extensive, and I do animals who are alive or those who have crossed.
What methods or techniques do you use to conduct psychic readings and communicate with animals?
I communicate with animals through telepathy, energy, and my spirit guides. If an animal doesn’t want to talk, I can ask my guides to help get the information I need. Because I’m an empath, I can also feel what the animal is feeling and that helps me know what is going on with them. I send them telepathic pictures and they send pictures back. I interpret these pictures and messages in human communication. The pictures they send have to be put into words that their human can understand. This can be a challenge but I have been doing it long enough that I know my spirit guide will help me with any problems in the translation. I don’t use anything else because I don’t want any other energy to get in the way of the pure communication that is coming from the animal.
Could you share a specific success story where your Psychic or Animal Communicator abilities made a positive impact?
There are so many. I once was out on a farm and there was a goat that kept going around to every chicken, horse, cat, dog, and other animals and he would put his nose on their head or on their noses. The owner wanted to know why or what this goat was doing. I talked to the goat and he said he was checking on all the animals to make sure they were okay. He had taken this on as his job. The owner said that it made sense because a couple of weeks before this, the goat had come to their back door and was banging on it. The goat wouldn’t stop until she came out and saw that a cat had fallen into their pool and couldn’t get out. She ran over and pulled the cat out and the goat walked with her to make sure the cat was okay. After I told her what the goat was doing, she paid more attention to what he was doing. He began to let her know when another animal wasn’t feeling well. He was an amazing goat.
How do you ensure the accuracy and ethicality of the information you provide during your sessions?
During the session, you can only rely on what the client is saying about how right you are. There are several times when I find out later how accurate I am because some things that come through will be happening in the future. However, most people know their animals well and know if what I am saying is true or if it resonates with them. I have also learned to trust what I hear, see, or feel and just go with it. If I think about it too much, I get my humanness in the way and it can go wrong. I tell people if it doesn’t resonate with them, it might not be right or what they need to hear. I try to empower people and have them listen to their own soul and intuition.
What is your stance on skeptics or those who might doubt the legitimacy of psychic abilities and animal communication?
If someone doesn’t want to believe in what I do, it’s not my problem. Everyone has the right to their own beliefs. I don’t put them down and I hope they don’t do that to me. Through my spiritual work, I have learned not to judge people. I have also learned that once you try to defend yourself, you have already lost. I do what I do just a plumber or a priest or anyone else. There are good psychics and bad psychics just like in other professions – you have to learn to spot them. If someone is charging too much, that is a sure sign they are in it for the money and not to help people or animals. I’m always aware that God gave me this gift and I’m here to help and honor the people who come to me and the ones that don’t. I will say that there have been several skeptics who have come to me and after I talked to them, they did believe in some of what I do.
How do you handle challenging or sensitive situations that might arise during a psychic or animal communication session?
If something comes up that I think the person might not like to hear, I will warn them that something has come to my attention and do they want to hear it. I come from a very positive point of view and my clients know I only tell the truth and in the kindest way possible. Because I can feel the dead around me and get messages from them, even death can be looked at as good and positive. Bad health can be helped by knowing about it and what might be coming to prepare for it. There have been times that a client has asked a question and my guides have told me it’s none of their business, so that is what I tell them. I say that they aren’t supposed to know that information either because it has nothing to do with them or there is a lesson there for them to learn by going through it first. I can’t really think of anything that can’t be talked about if you come from a positive, loving way. That is what Spirit is.
