     Animal Communicator

....Dogs come into our lives to teach us about love and loyalty. They depart to teach us about loss. A new dog never replaces an old dog, it merely expands the heart. If you have loved many dogs your heart is very big.

- Erica Jong

Debbie has helped me to understand my dogs better.  I adopted them both at 6 months and they had a few issues.  She helped me understand and figure out why they did certain things.  She has talked to them both on several occasions and what they had to say to her has helped me deal with them and their issues better.

1. What is Animal Communication?
Animal Communication is speaking with animals telepathically, a system of sending and receiving impressions. Telepathy is defined as "communication between minds by some means other than sensory perception." All animals, as well as humans, have the ability but since humans rely more on speech they tend to disconnect from it and lose it, similar to a muscle that atrophies. Those who maintain energetic connections, like twins and mothers and their babies, tend to keep their telepathic abilities. Telepathy can also be called intuition. When you know who is calling before you pick up the phone that is intuition, but also telepathy because the person calling was sending thoughts your way...most likely without even knowing it.

2. How is the animal actually communicating with you since it doesn't speak English? Communications can come in many different ways depending on the animal and the communicator. Communicators can receive information in the form of pictures, words, smells, and feelings. The animal sends impressions and sensations to us and we translate them based on our individual abilities. I receive both pictures and words. Also, if an animal is experiencing pain, I am able to feel it within myself and can communicate the area to their human.

Is there something I should do to prepare for the phone consultation?
Yes, having a list of questions and comments for the animal ready will allow for more time to get to the heart of the issues. The more specific the questions the better when it comes to speaking with animals. For example, a very sick dog may be having a good day. When asked "how are you?" since animals live in the moment, he might say "fine," when in fact he has numerous issues. Therefore the human would not get the information needed to help the dog without digging deeper. I am happy to help with wording questions if needed.


4. Do you do home visits?

At this time, no. Like many communicators I prefer doing sessions via the phone because that is a situation that allows me to do my best work. Telepathy doesn't need proximity and the act of being on the phone with you is what creates the connection to communicate. This type of connection is a safe and loving situation and allows the animal to be comfortable and open up, especially if their are fears or behavior issues. Also, it prevents the other 5 senses getting in the way and assures information received isn't assumptions based on what is seen or felt physically. Simply put, the phone consultation is more efficient and more work can be done getting to the bottom of things; as well as, more cost affective as it allows me to charge less.

5. Why do you get quiet on the phone?
Telepathy comes to a quiet mind. Information can come quickly and it is best to focus on the animal so as not to miss anything.


6. Does the animal need to be with me when I'm on the phone for the consult?
No, but I do recommend it simply because the session is a wonderful time to bond with your animal. Plus, animals often give physical cues to their humans during the session which are great to experience.


7. Do you have a guarantee? 
There are many variables that can affect a communication such as the health and emotions of all beings involved. Every communicator has had animals that they just couldn't connect to for whatever reason. Luckily those instances are few compared to the many successes, If you don't feel that I'm talking with your animal, please say so and we will stop.  There will be no charge and I will refer you to another communicator or we can set up another consult time.


8. Can you tell what is specifically wrong with an animal's health?
I cannot diagnose. I simply find out what the animal is experiencing and where. At times it can come across very straight forward but for exact diagnosis and treatment a qualified veterinarian should be consulted.


9. Will just talking to my animal change its behavior that I don't like?
Sometimes an animal just wants to be heard and the unpleasant behavior will stop or lessen. Quite often though the behavior is due to emotional issues/past traumas that other things are needed, such as a different diet or flower essences, to create balance and allow the animal to move forward. With the help, the symptom of the behavior goes away naturally and more permanently. Another scenario is you may find a compromise, reward or consequence needs to be made with the animal. Some generic examples would be, if you supply the dog with his own place to dig, he won't dig in your flowers, or if the cat doesn't stop said behavior she may not be allowed in the house anymore even if it is her favorite place to be. Unfortunately some times the animal's personality is such that there is no changing the behavior. Just as with humans, you can't make them do anything they don't want to do but it is always worth a try to communicate and help put harmony back into the relationship with your animal friend. 

10. Do you speak to animals in spirit?
Yes. It can be very beneficial for people to connect with their animals after their transition, especially if it was a difficult one. 


11. What kind of animals can you speak to?
I can speak to all kinds of animals. There have been many that I have been blessed to talk with, such as goats, rabbits, chickens, fish, horses, mules and, of course, cats and dogs. Wild animals communicate a little differently than domesticated ones but if they are willing, any animal can be connected to. Yes, they must be willing. I once had a parrot snub me!
