  Questions, questions and more questions!
          about animal communication
This month, we received a question from one of our clients, Debby P. of Dullesport, WA. Here are Debby’s comments.

Several times you’ve done sessions for me and mentioned that the animal you are communicating with was expecting you. Can you elaborate on that? How do they know to expect you?

Thanks for this great question, Debby. You’re right! Many times when I connect with an animal to do a communication, they do tell me that they were expecting my visit.

In general, there seems to be two different ways that they know I am going to communicate with them. First of all, everyone should know that animals definitely pick up on their people’s thoughts. Your thoughts may not be crystal clear to them but even snippits of information can lead them to know that someone is going to visit with them….although they may not know who that person is.

I also find it interesting when an animal tells me how they didn’t expect me to visit in the way that I visit through their thoughts. But instead, they expected me to show up at their home or at their stable. When I explain that we are only going to only communicate through our thoughts, they are fine with this. But I do get quite a few invitations to show up in person in the future. Of course, I find this pretty funny, as YOUR animals are inviting me to come over to your home. But don’t worry…. I’ll call first. (smile)

Aside from your animals hearing your thoughts, when I first receive your order for a session, I read through it to decide if I need any clarification before doing the session. While I am reading through the order form and not officially communicating with the animal, I do have a lot of thoughts going through my mind about how to approach the various subjects for the communication. And many times, this is how the animal knows I am going to communicate with them soon, as they pick up on those thoughts.

So, thanks for the great question, Debby! Just remember that there is a lot going on with your animals that may not visible to you on the surface.

“I have sometimes thought of the final cause of dogs having such short lives and I am quite satisfied it is in the compassion to the human race; for if we suffer so much in losing a dog after an acquaintance of ten to twelve years, what would it be if they were to double?”
– Sir Walter Scott
What is a Reassurance Communication Session?

Reassurance sessions can help both you and your animal through a stressful situation. From being left at home when you go on vacation, to moving to a new stable or moving to a new house, having surgery, adding a new animal to household and much more, a reassurance session can prepare your animal for the changes that lie ahead as well as give you some peace of mind.

Here is a comment from one our clients who used this service.

"Thank you very much for talking with our fur children. I'm certain it was beneficial for all of us and we will certainly be contacting you again. Your reassurance to Sara in particular makes a big difference in letting us enjoy our vacation." Larry C., Virginia Beach, VA.

Reassurance Sessions are $45. Click here if you would like to place an order or go to the Services-Order Forms tab at the top of the page to locate all our offered services.

Ever consider what our dogs must think of us? I mean, here we come back from a grocery store with the most amazing haul -- chicken, pork, half a cow. They must think we're the greatest hunters on earth!  -Anne Tyle

 From the Horse's Mouth - Feature Article
  All shapes and sizes and mostly….personality!​​

As many of you know, Animal Connection meets with many different types of animals in the course of a day’s work.  Although most of my work comes from a variety of cat, dog and horse breeds, I have communicated with birds, prairie dogs, cougars, mountain lions, mules, snakes, vultures, guinea pigs, turtles, ferrets, donkeys, llamas, pigs coyotes, sugar gliders and iguanas.

Although each of these animals is different in the type of animal that they are, they are most different in their personalities.

The personality of the animal comes from two main sources, their current life and soul memories that they bring with them.  This is why some animals who appear to be very young in their physical age today can provide such wise, insightful information during a communication session. So, don’t let their physical age fool you!

Those animals who are most wise have old souls.  They have learned life lessons through their experiences.  Although I have communicated with many animals during the time I have been helping people and their animals through communication, I can say that I have met only a very small portion of animals who are extremely wise beyond their years or are old souls.

This animal soul maturity can be heard immediately when I communicate.  For those of you who know my communication methods, you know that I primarily receive messages by hearing a conversation, although I also do feel emotions shared by the animal, see pictures in my mind’s eye and get information through my other senses as well.  Because I hear this conversation, the intonation of the “voice” tells much. The older soul sounds aged and almost stuffy. The vocabulary that’s used is more diverse.  This is how the animal shares their maturity with me and this is also how my mind interprets their more mature thoughts so I know this is an old soul.

Aside from soul maturity, there are also many other personalities in communication, just like you see many personalities in animals when you watch them physically.  Some animals are comedians of sorts. They send pictures that can make me burst out laughing in the middle of a session or tell me things that have double meanings, which are quite witty.

The animals I communicate with can also be jealous or snobby. The information they share has their emotions and personality written all over it and is as diverse as the number of animals I communicate with.

I met a cat once named Orange Pekoe.  Pekoe, as she told me I was allowed to call her, was quite the character.  From the moment I met her, I knew she wanted to be the center of attention.

Pekoe told me that she liked her name because it was different. She felt it was almost elegant in being different and she liked that because she wanted to be remembered as different. This is the legacy she wants to leave behind.

As Pekoe was telling me this, I could almost envision a person sitting in a silk dressing gown, chewing bon bons and sipping champagne. Yes, she was leaving quite a legacy in her personality.

Pekoe told me that she really didn’t want to be a cat in this life. She said that she thinks she was put in the cat body to humble her.  Well, I certainly couldn’t help but chuckle at that comment.

But as strong a personality as Pekoe had, she also had a great deal of love for her family.  When she shared her thoughts about them her strong assertiveness faded and I could sense such love.

One animal with a comic personality is Santos, a beautiful German Shepherd who is part of Tom R.’s family in Santa Monica, CA.  Once Santos began communicating, I certainly didn’t need to prompt him to communicate with me.  He went on and on jumping from one topic to another.  It seemed that poor Santos had been waiting all his life to tell someone all this information.  He was quite the philosopher and had an opinion on quite a variety of topics.

Well, I feel that if an animal wants to communicate to this degree, I should just let him continue. It’s healthy for our animals to get these issues out in the open. It makes them feel better emotionally and sometimes, just the opportunity to communicate rids the animal of fears and anxieties.

I’m still not sure if Santos picked up on my thoughts that his speech making had been going on for quite a long time or if he just came to this conclusion on his own.  But all of a sudden, he just about stopped in mid-thought.  Then I got this very vivid picture of him stepping down off a large box.  Yes, Santos was letting me know that he was getting down off his soap box and now I could continue with our communication.

Well, needless to say, I couldn’t help but laugh.  This philosopher dog, also had a good sense of humor.

So enjoy your animals’ personalities, whether it be their physical personality that you see on a daily basis or more intimate details that may be picked up through communication.  You never know what you may learn from them or…. You may just have a good laugh!

Customer Comments

From Elaine M. of Laguna Beach, CA…. Thank you for the amazing session, it made me cry.  Petey is one of the happiest dogs I've ever pulled from the shelters.  I know he has a purpose in life, we just need to match him up with the right person to receive it.  I'm sure I'll be doing another communication with my next foster, and probably a few troubled dogs our rescue has.

From Stephanie P. of Fort Collins, CO… Hi Danielle. Thank you so much for talking to both Gracie Mae and Finley. What a beautiful message from both of them. I am so glad that you had time to talk to them today. Thank you again for everything. 

From Sandy L. of Dallas, TX… How can I ever thank you enough for the session you did with Katie. I am slowly seeing a change in her behavior and as you suggested, I continue to remind her of what is expected by seeing her positive actions in my mind’s eye. I was shocked to see any change at all within a few days of the communication and I am slowly seeing more and more change. How wonderful! I can’t thank you enough, Danielle.

A “Public Service Announcement” – The danger of horse hair

In a press release today, the National Institute of Health has announced the discovery of a potentially dangerous substance in the hair of horses. This substance, called "amo-bacter equuii" has been linked with the following symptoms in female humans:

  Reluctance to cook
  Reluctance to perform housework
  Reluctance to wear anything but boots
  Reluctance to work except in support of a horse
  Physical craving for contact with horses (may be an addiction)

 Beware:  If you come in contact with a female human affected by this  substance, be prepared to talk about horses for hours on end.  

This has been a public service announcement.
