Animal Communication

Our animals play very special roles in our lives, and miscommunication between you can make life hard!

Are you wondering what is going on with your animal companion?  I help people understand the animals in their life, whether they are cats, dogs, horses, pigs, cows – or any other.

Why use an animal communicator?  My clients have many reasons:

  • explanation for a recent behavior change
  • reconnect, answer lasting questions with a deceased pet
  • assist in blending of new animal families
  • discover what they need or want from us, their people

“Jack took your advice the other day…next day he was back to his old self…he wags his tail a lot more again and barks “   A.L.

Animals communicate with each other using telepathy, sending words, feelings or pictures, and with practice, we humans can re-establish our ability to communicate telepathically.  “Talking” with an animal is very gratifying, and helping the human understand why a behavior exists is even more rewarding. Animal communication can have the effect of the animal feeling like they got their life story off their chest and can modify their behavior as a result.

During an Animal Communication I will help you to understand things as your animal does, ultimately helping you to reframe the picture of the situation and make different choices as well!

I am a graduate of Communication With All Life University , a comprehensive Animal Communication Certification program founded by Joan Ranquet. This program is taught through ongoing  tele-seminars and weekend workshops in which we work directly with animals both locally and all over the country. With the help of the University, I was able to discover my intuitive gifts and then master them with the thorough curriculum.

Karen, we really appreciate your giftedness, and sharing it with us and the animals! Karen provided us with an amazing reading of our 2 dogs who had passed on awhile back. Not only did she read both dogs to a ‘T’, she also reported images that only our dogs could have shared! Karen, thank you so very much for conveying messages to and from our girls and for respecting, honoring and sharing in the remarkable relationships that we had with them! “ Pat A

Animal Communication Sessions

I can communicate with your animal via a private phone session, a private in-house appointment or as part of a group such as a doggie daycare or barn session.

During a private phone session you email a photo of the animal to me and we arrange a time to talk on the phone.  This can be very helpful for behavioral, training and health challenges and is a great opportunity to deepen your connection with your animal companion.

In some cases animal communication is just the start, to restore harmony there may also be a need for training, veterinary care or body/energy work.

Shelter Love – National Shelter Appreciation Week

By on October 28, 2014

Boy-and-dog-200269604-001-lc100212I’m posting this early so you have a week to plan how best to show your appreciation to your local shelter or rescue November 2nd to 8th for National Shelter Appreciation Week!  There are so many beautiful people working at shelters taking care of so many deserving animals, honoring them for only a week just doesn’t seem like enough.

I had the pleasure of attending the Regional Animal Services of King County Volunteer Appreciation dinner this month as the guest of keynote speaker Joan Ranquet. I was so impressed by the accomplishments of the limited staff and volunteers – in fact one volunteer had over 2000 hours in just one year!

Some of the awesome programs I learned RASKC has in place -   a foster hospice program for older cats and dogs; Angel Fund that provides surgery for injured animals instead of euthanasia; regular pet bereavement support groups;  and adoption sites in local PetCo stores. This is all the work of just one shelter!

Across the nation are hundreds, no thousands, of shelters each providing the best care they can with the resources available to them for thousands and thousands of animals.  Without the dedication of caring individuals, many of these animals would be unadoptable as they wouldn’t get the training or health care they need to overcome the obstacles that landed them in the shelter.

It was humbling to be among these volunteers at the dinner.  They are the ones that see the worst case scenario on a daily or weekly basis.  They are the ones providing love and support in a stray, lost or abandoned animal’s final hours. They are the ones doing the care some of us think we just can’t handle.  They are also the privileged that gets to see the best case scenarios when everything works in awesome alignment for the animal.

And though they are very special people for doing this, they are no different in ability than you or I.  Everyone has the opportunity to make a loving difference in an animal’s life – whether it is their last days or their days being in-between-homes.

So in honor of National Shelter Appreciation Week I offer the following ideas how you can show your appreciation.  And know it doesn’t have to be just once, you can continue the generosity all year long :)

Ways to appreciate your local – or national- shelter.

  1. First let me get the obvious out of the way
  • Donate Money!
  • Donate time!  Even if you “just” walk a dog or pet a cat – the animal, and staff, will love you for it.
  • Donate Treasures! Some will take your previous pets treasures as well if in good shape, but double check with your shelter first, and look at their wish list.
  1. Attend their fundraisers.  Not only is this a fun way to meet other caring animal-people, the proceeds support the shelter.
  2. Bring plant-based goodies to the staff.  Some shelters have strict food guidelines so be safe and take only yummy plant-based treats.  Whole Foods, PCC and other stores have plenty of options.
  3. Write a note of appreciation, who doesn’t like to be recognized for their contributions?
  4. Share your adoption story on blog or Facebook, then be sure to share with the shelter.  Look for my story coming up soon.
  5. Take a tour.  Take the time to learn what the shelter is really doing for the community and it’s animals.
  6. Share with kids. Children tend to connect with animals easily, take some kids with you to brighten their day as well as the animals.
  7. Adopt an animal!  Maybe the best support of all :)
