The Timing of Death

Question: Many of my animals have told me that when they or a human dies, it is the right time on the soul level. Many animals have asked me to give them time or let them pass on their own.

In animal communication courses, other animals also complained that they did not want to die and got thrown out of their bodies unprepared. Some said that far too many are put down against their will.

On the other hand, I communicated with a dog with many problems who was hoping his people would release him out of his body. Instead, his people tried again and again to keep him alive.

Can animals die too early or too late? What does this mean on the soul level? Is what bothers me a question of guilt and responsibility?

From Wolves and Dolphins about Humans Exterminating Them

Pam Youngquist wrote to me recently:

I have an urgent request for your communication services on behalf of the American Grey Wolves in Idaho.

The immediate situation is that 2000 wolves (their total population) living in Idaho are in immediate danger of state-sanctioned eradication of their species. The state wolf depredation program has just hired an expert animal control outfit to do all in its power to kill every wolf in the state.

My Drug Sniffing Dog Trained Himself

My former dog, Belinda, touchingly greeted human friends. She would delicately place her nose near their lips, sniffing lightly, and then touch her nose to the center of their forehead, the third eye. She then paused for them to get her message that they should bend their head toward her so she could touch the crown. It was her special blessing and Namaste greeting.

My longhaired Chihuahua came to me at winter solstice 2018 from the same Small Dog Rescue that rescued Belinda.

Earth Communion: Merging with Grand Canyon Bedrock

In early October, I visited a friend in Flagstaff, Arizona, 125 miles from my home north of Phoenix. Afterward, I decided to continue to the Grand Canyon since it was only 80 miles further, and I hadn’t been there in years. Gazing into the canyon from the rim above is always awe-inspiring, expanding, and revitalizing.

From Birds Mighty and Small

A reader wrote to me of her Bald Eagle experience:

Bald Eagle's message to me changed my direction on life. I love animals and would much prefer hanging out with the furry, feathered, and scaled than my own species. I've been deeply hurt in the past, numerous times by people I trust and had happily been cocooned up to protect myself using COVID and my chemical sensitivities as the perfect excuse. Bald Eagle aims to change that.

When Trying to Figure It Out Shifts to Listening and Learning

Regula Kramer wrote to me in July requesting assistance in communicating with the bee population in Switzerland.

I am in contact with plants, and try to get the needs from and send messages to the cats I am living with. I am in doubt whether it's accurate, but I will continue.

Now I have a concrete issue I'd wish help for.

I wish to enhance the living conditions for bees in my home country, Switzerland. I wish to know how we can best support them to be healthy and thriving again. I would like to know from their perspective what the biggest threat is in Switzerland and what they think could be solutions.

The Animal Communication Genie

When I did animal consultations years ago, people would leave requests for consultations on my answering machine (later on voicemail) when I couldn’t answer the phone. I would return to find a message about their animal friend being in distress, asking if I could help them. Then, I would hear a following message thanking me for helping their animal friend. They said they didn’t need a consultation after all, since the problem resolved soon after they called me.

How did this happen? Was a genie in the answering machine fulfilling their wishes?

Whale Healing Counsel

Lisa Fraser wrote this communication she received from whales, published in Species Link, The Journal of Interspecies Telepathic Communication, Issue 86, Spring 2012.

This morning I awoke early. It was still dark as I went out into the cold. I felt the magic of the waning full moon bathing my world in white light. But so early? It was the whales. They wanted me to feel the moment and hear their message.

Ecological Messages from Other Species

After my last blog with the Orca message, Leslie Corin-Ash wrote to me about her desire to find out from other animal communicators around the world if they have asked animals what they are thinking and feeling about the huge climate changes on Earth and what they might want to do about it.

She relates her experience:

Mediterranean Orca Message

I am curious about the orca attacks in the Mediterranean. Since 2020, orcas have been mysteriously attacking sailboats. They don't hurt the sailors, but they have been known to aim straight for the rudder, with no playing whatsoever. Since 2020, there have been 500 interactions. Three resulted in sunken ships. Reports say that one female orca has begun the attacks, and the others are copying. Scientists are unsure whether the orcas are attacking, playing, or teaching their young to "hunt" by pretending that rudders are tuna.

Do you have any insight into this situation? My husband and I are both sailors and we planned to sail through this region. I am curious to hear about the orcas' motives, and if there is anything we can say to them to discourage them from attacking boats.

The Alpha and the Omega

On Tuesday, May 22, the day after Mo’s passing, as I gave his body back to Mother Earth in tender ceremony, a female tortoise contacted me. She told me it was part of their plan to be with me as guardians and friends in ancient reptile form. He got the first turn, and now she was coming to me. Her presence was powerful and friendly, with a sly sense of humor.

Explaining How Animal Communication Works

As animal communicators, we know what an animal is feeling, can identify the personality of the animal to our clients, see images, feelings, hear words, and more. For example: I tell a client that one of her three dogs is just the funniest dog in the world and she says, “Oh, he is, he is!” The animal tells us what s/he needs and then when I check in with clients a few weeks later, the issues are usually resolved. Sometimes I get feelings about what is going on with the animals before I even make the phone call to the client.

People often ask me how this works. What do you say to people when they ask you: How do you do this? How do we know all this? Is there a scientific explanation? I would love a simple explanation that would make sense to people and also for myself.

Telepathy through your Feet on the Ground

As I was beginning to teach a Basic Course on How to Communicate with Animals years ago, my mentors, the Great Whales, communicated:

Have them feel the animals through their feet on the ground.

They showed me how we as individuals of all species are connected to each other through our bodies on the Earth no matter where we are.

Virus Helper

Communicating with viruses or other microorganisms may feel like a stretch if you think of animal communication applying mainly to dogs, horses, cats, or other mammals. However, communicating with smaller life forms, even as tiny as cells, can yield enlightening results. Sue Becker echoes my experience in communicating with viruses in her article here.

Scientific Approaches to Animal Communication

Researchers are studying the field of interspecies telepathic communication in new ways that go beyond old scientific research models that do not adequately approach or reveal the multifaceted results of this subject. These contemporary scientists have also taken intuitive interspecies communication classes. Some are even practicing professionals in the field. It is an exciting time for enormous expansion to new people who may not have been open to or even have heard of animal communication.

I put together this comprehensive article with revealing contributions from other seasoned animal communicators about scientific proof, published in
Species Link, The Journal of Interspecies Telepathic Communication, Issue 53 Winter 2004. Enjoy the time you take to dive into its riches.
