What Do Pets Really Want?

If you could give your pet anything in the world, what would it be? A new toy or a favorite treat? A new friend?

The Best Present You Can Give Your Pet Is Your Presence. 

It's easy to forget your animals want something incredibly simple from you: your undivided attention in a mindful way, even if it's only for five minutes a day.

Throughout the holidays and the rest of the year, we tend to get consumed and overwhelmed by the many distractions life brings. These diversions prevent you from being fully and peacefully Present with your pets. 

Animals consistently tell me that spending quality time with their humans is the best gift they could ever receive because they never get enough quality time with their cherished humans.

Being with your animal family while you're talking on the phone, watching TV, or surfing the web isn't the Present your animal family craves. They want you to disconnect from your cell phone, computer, or whatever is preventing you from becoming fully Present in mind, body, and spirit.

If you think about it, your pets are consistently Present as they quietly support you with their Presence. They appreciate it when you reciprocate in kind.

Taking time each day to be quietly Present with your animal brings about many benefits including hearing your intutitive voice and your animals' voices. Plus it brings deeper awareness, understanding, and balance to your relationship.

Being Present with your pet might look like sitting quietly on the couch together, taking a walk in Nature, or going on a joy-ride to a favorite destination. Or it could be offering Reiki which is an easy way to be fully Present.

Your animal family will thank you for giving them the best Present ever: your Presence.

Cockatoo Benefits From Animal Communication and Reiki

After Experiencing A Seizure, Tula the Cockatoo benefitted from Animal Communication and Reiki. 

Tula is a vivacious, spunky, and stubborn 17-year-old Cockatoo who has severe health challenges including hormonal imbalance and frequent seizures caused by abnormally high zinc levels.

Tula's person, Paula called me to communicate telepathically with Tula as well as offering her Reiki. Paula was concerned about how Tula was feeling after experiencing another seizure which left Tula abnormally quiet and withdrawn.

Besides talking with Tula during an Animal Communication phone session, Paula felt a distant Reiki session would also help Tula feel better.

Tula the Cockatoo

During our Animal Communication phone session, I  telepathically asked Tula how she was feeling, She immediately showed me that her body felt inflamed as though it was on fire. Tula felt sad, withdrawn, and depressed especially since her last seizure. Tula said it knocked the wind out of her.

Tula went on to say,

Besides my body feeling like it's on fire, I'm bored. I know Paula does her best to keep me busy and engaged, but she can never replace Nature with her trees, streams, and fresh air. I need to go outside.
I want Paula to take me on car rides. When I'm in the car, it feels like Paula and I are flying! There's nothing better than feeling the wind flowing through my feathers while breathing in all the many different smells that whip by me. 

I relayed Tula's message with Paula, who was 100% on-board with the idea. In fact, Paula described taking many fun car trips with Tula as her co-pilot. Paula confessed she couldn't remember the last time they went on a ride together.

Paula then promised Tula that they'd take a joy ride to one of their favorite destinations, the San Francisco Bay, after receiving Reiki. As Paula described their past car rides, I felt Tula's mood brighten.

After her Animal Communication session, I offered Tula Reiki. During her distant Reiki session, Tula drank in the healing energy like a fine wine. As she received the universal life force known as Reiki, I felt Tula's mood lighten up even more.

Tula Joy Riding After Receiving Reiki

After Tula's Reiki Session, I received a phone call from Paula. She told me that Tula became so relaxed during her Reiki session that she nearly tumbled off her perch. Paula was surprised by this since Tula rarely goes into deep relaxation or falls asleep during the day.

Tula After Receiving Reiki

Later that afternoon, I received the above pictures of Tula after Paula took Tula on a joy-ride to the San Francisco Bay. As you can see from her photographs, Tula is one happy Cockatoo! 
Paula was thrilled because she noticed a happier, more energetic, and upbeat Tula almost immediately after the Animal Communication and Reiki sessions were done. Paula admitted she was also feeling more optimistic now that Tula was acting more like her usual self.

Animals and Gratitude

“If having a soul means to be able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans.”                                           – James Herriot

Animals Express Love and Gratitude Daily

Animals are full of grace, love unconditionally, and do not judge as humans do. 

Smiling Bodhi Bear

With Thanksgiving and the Holiday Season upon us, it’s a perfect time to muse about the love and gratitude you and your animal family share together. 

When you express gratitude to your pets, it creates positive feelings, a sense of harmony, and builds trust. In addition, it shows your love for them.

Sharing gratitude with your pets, both physically and telepathically, opens the door to a more profound and loving relationship while strengthening your bond together. It also helps to reduce stress and anxiety.

Being mindful of your pets' ability pick up on your thoughts and emotions can help your animals better deal with the stress that comes with the holiday season. Every thought and feeling you have is sent off telepathically from your mind straight to your animal companions. Whether you like it or not, your pets can feel if you are happy or sad; relaxed or stressed.

Trying to hide your thoughts and feelings from them is futile because pets are masterful at receiving telepathic messages. What animals don't always understand are the reasons behind your emotions which can confuse and upset them. If your Holiday plans aren't going the way you wanted and your feeling upset, your animal friends may feel they are the cause of your stress and distress.

Just Say No!

During the Holidays, it's important to keep your pets' routine as normal as possible especially their meals and exercise routine. Remove them from stressful situations to a quiet, safe place: they will be happier away from the Holiday madness. When you say "no" to their pleading faces as they are trying to convince you to feed them more turkey or treats is an act of grace.

Some people feel animals aren't capable of expressing gratitude. I wholeheartedly disagree. I believe animals show their appreciation to their humans daily. In many ways, your pet's actions speak volumes about how they are feeling.

It's fun and life-affirming to see the different ways your pets share their love and gratitude which is sometimes difficult to understand or recognize.

Your animal family loves you unconditionally which is an expression of their gratitude. Even when you're feeling sad or blue, their love for you remains constant and consistent.

Some other expressions of thanks from your pets manifest by sticking close to you, following you around, or lying on or near you.

My Cat, Mona Marie
Other signs of gratitude may not be as apparent as when cats bring their humans a gift of the dead remains of a mouse or bird they caught and tortured. Cats are proud to express their appreciation with such a unique surprise for their favorite human.

My dog, Bodhi Bear expresses his gratitude by nuzzling up to my face or flashing his effervescent smile. My cat, Mona Marie shows her unconditional love by sleeping on me at night. My Siamese, Elvis is a snuggle bug who isn't shy about lying on my heart center.

How does your animal family show their gratitude? 

I'd love to hear about your pet's expressions of gratitude. Please share your stories here on my blog or go to my Facebook page.

Need help figuring out what your pets are communicating with you? I can help by giving your animal family a "voice." 

Need a Holiday Break? Why not consider a Reiki Session for you and your pets?

Rescued Dog Helped with Animal Communication and Reiki After A Stroke

Paralyzed from the Neck Down, Puppy Mill Dog Predicted His Paralysis Was Temporary.

Zac the Keeshond's tale is about how Animal Communication and Reiki can bring hope to an unimaginable situation. 

His tale shows that animals can predict their recovery when given a "voice."

Zac's story also speaks to the strength and resilience puppy mill dogs have to move past their adversity and traumas when they have a loving and supportive "pack." 

Shortly after Thanksgiving last year, I was contacted by Gregg and Karen B., who were out of their minds with worry about their puppy mill rescue dog, Zac.

Zac the Keeshond A Year After His Stroke

Zac had a tough life before he joined Gregg and Karen's pack. Born in a horrific puppy mill in Upstate New York, he was rescued when he was approximately 5 to 7 years old.

Can you imagine a dog with little to no human contact for 7 years? It seems inconceivable that 1000s of dogs like Zac endure the same inhumane existence.

Zac's past has made him skittish and afraid of random things. Yet he is loving, gentle, sweet, and kind. He is courageous especially when he is spooked by his past demons.

Gregg and Karen asked me to communicate with Zac right after he became paralyzed from the neck down due to a stroke. They explained Zac seemed fine after playing with his best friend, Jethro the Labrador, but 45 minutes later Zac could no longer stand or walk.

On his Facebook page. Gregg wrote about how I was helping Zac with Animal Communication and Reiki:
Cathy has helped my pack immensely. I have three rescued dogs, all from different places. As with most rescued pets, limited, none or sketchy (at best) history is available on them. She is so amazing and so very on point. 
Well, right after Thanksgiving last year, this little guy of mine, Zac had a stroke. He was paralyzed from the neck down. He was bright eyed but afraid. He refused food, water, and his medications. If there was any hope my boy was going to survive this, we needed his cooperation with our efforts.
We contacted The Animal Muse--Animal Communicator Cathy Malkin for help.
During the initial telephone conversation with Cathy, we had our dogs in the same room with us. Cathy said Zac was afraid but wanted to get better. He told Cathy he hadn’t lost hope because my wife and I were willing to help him recover. 
Zac expressed with complete certainty, he would recover from his trauma. He was firm that he would regain full modibily and run again. 
Cathy communicated to Zac that if he was going to get back on his paws, he must eat, drink. and take his meds. She also told Zac that carrying him around, assisting him with bodily functions, including walking in a carry handle assisted harness, etc, we would lovingly and happily take care of. 
As God is my witness, within 5 minutes of hanging up the phone with Cathy, my boy started to drink and ate for the first time since being released from the hospital. Plus he took his meds like a kid eating candy!
The Zac Pack

When I spoke with Zac shortly after he was admitted to the animal hospital ER, he told me was terrified. I felt him shutting down and withdrawing emotionally and mentally. He refused meds, food, and water.

Gregg, Karen, and I were afraid he was going to die.

Zac felt he was being abandoned at the animal hospital to die. Even worse, he thought he might be returned to the puppy mill. I reassured Zac that he wasn't being left. I told him that he'd never be returned to that horrific place. Not now, not ever! I then reiterated he was well-loved and very much wanted.

After hearing from Zac, I asked Gregg and Karen to visit him in the hospital as much as possible to assure him he wasn't being abandoned by his family and to bolster his spirits.

A few weeks later, Zac experienced a setback in his recovery.

Gregg updated his Facebook friends on Zac's progress:
We've been in touch with Cathy Malkin, who checks in with us to let us know Zac is still very vocal. 
Interestingly, Zac has been more vocal, literally since about a week into this ordeal. He has found his bark, his voice. 
Cathy is our gateway to Zac's voice. Zac told her he tweaked himself getting up from laying down and judging on when the setback appeared, we think we know when. He said he's feeling better, and knows he is loved! 
Cathy sent Reiki again for Zac so we're confident he's back on the mend.
We will not give up on you little buddy, never not ever!

In the past year since Zac's debilitating injury, I've communicated with Zac and offered him Reiki often. Zac is happy to report he has recovered from his stroke. He's resumed his daily walks with his Dad and Barkley, along with play dates with Jethro.

Since that fateful day in November 2017, I've helped the other members of Zac's Pack: Griffin (now In Spirit) and Barkley with Animal Communication and Reiki.


Gregg shared the following on his FB page:
True to his word, Zac has recovered to about 95% of his pre-stroke condition, and we know without Cathy’s assistance that may not have been the case. 
Since then, we have used Cathy’s animal communicator abilities to assist us with our other two dogs as well. Griffin, also a rescued Keeshond, suffered from seizures and had a huge tumor removed from his liver, and our other dog, Barkley is generally healthy but has become out of sorts since Griffin  passed on 9/11/17 from liver cancer.    
Cathy has spoken to our depressed fuzzy boy, Zac who told us what he needs to help him along. In the past couple weeks, he seems to be doing better. 
Cathy has even communicated with our boy, Griffin who crossed The Rainbow Bridge. 
I can’t say enough about Cathy and her mastery of her power. 
Check out her website, FB page, email her, and/or give her a call. Tell her Griffin, Barkley, Zac, and their dad recommended you call!
Thank you, Cathy, for making The Zac Pack’s life complete! 
Puppy mill dogs like Zac and his pack are my heroes. Their strength, resilience, and willingness to move past their traumatic past is nothing less astounding.

Loving and kind humans like Gregg and Karen are also my heroes. Their dedication to helping their dogs move forward is heartwarming and life-affirming.

Should I Dress My Pet for Halloween?

Just like people, some pets like to dress up in clothing and hats.  Most animals prefer you don't anthropomorphize them by making them wear human outfits. 

You should only put a costume on your pet if they are comfortable with the idea. Out of respect for your pets' feelings and well-being, it's key you honor their wishes whether or not you agree with them.

As much as I want to dress up my dog Bodhi in a Halloween costume, he wants nothing to do with hats and human outfits. He becomes stressed and anxious when I try to outfit him. The most he's willing to tolerate are accouterments that go around his neck like bandanas, necklaces, and bows.

My Spirit dog, Kobe Bear loved wearing hats and necklaces. He happily wore them for hours.

My Spirit Dog, Kobe Bear loved wearing costumes.
Not my Bodhi! He clearly tells me that costumes aren't his thing by throwing hats off his head or sitting down when I put a vest on him. He also starts licking his lips and yawning, which tells me he's feeling stress.

Whether I like or not, I respect Bodhi's wishes, and I refrain from dressing him up. Wearing human outfits is not his thing. The last thing I want to do is stress him out or make him uncomfortable. So I have let go of my desire to put costumes and hats on him.

Even if your pet doesn't mind wearing outfits, be mindful of stress signals that your pet might be giving you like yawning, lip licking, turning their back to you, or avoiding eye contact. Some pets will run away and hide if they're not on board with your playing dress-up with them.

If your animal exhibits any of these "stress signals," take the outfit off immediately as it's not fair to your pet to keep them dressed.

Many pets tolerate wearing clothing to make their people happy. That's why it's key to keep a lookout for signs of stress or anxiety when your pet is wearing a costume.

If your pet doesn't like wearing a costume that covers his head and body, a better alternative might be a bandana or bow. Or nothing at all.

If your animal companion enjoys dressing up like Kobe Bear did, please keep the following in mind to make sure you and your animal family have a safe and enjoyable time:

  • If your pet is acting impatient, annoyed, uncomfortable, or unhappy wearing a costume, she is trying to tell you that wearing an outfit is not her cup of tea. (Learn more about Stress in Pets)
  • Costumes must provide freedom of movement for your pet's comfort and safety.  When choosing a pet costume, make sure it doesn't impair your pet's hearing, sight, or the ability to breathe, bark, eat, drink, or eliminate.  
  • Your pet's head and neck should be able to move freely in their outfit. If your pet is wearing a hat, double-check that isn't too big and doesn't cover her eyes.
  • Avoid potential Choking Hazards on costumes like bow ties, ribbons, hanging beads, or pieces that might fall off, along with other loose items that might cause choking if swallowed. Always watch for these kinds of objects and any other potential choking hazards on your pet's costumes.
  • Allow pets to get used to wearing their costumes before going trick or treating on Halloween.
  • Avoid itchy, uncomfortable, or restrictive materials. 
  • Choose a brightly colored costume so you can be seen at night, especially if you plan to take your pet Trick or Treating. Attaching a blinking light and using reflective material will increase their visibility.  If you use glow sticks and jewelry, keep in mind that they can be toxic to your pet if ingested. 
  • NEVER force your animal to wear clothing because most animals don't understand what human clothes are and why they need to wear them.
  • If if you really need to put an outfit on an animal and your animal hates wearing costumes, a better choice might be dressing up a stuffed animal.

It's essential your animals feel comfortable and safe wearing their Halloween costume. Otherwise, it's not worth upsetting them by making them do something that scares them.

Have a fun and safe Howl-o-ween!

9 Halloween Pet Safety Tips

Halloween can be one of the scariest and most dangerous days of the year for your pets. 

Minion Pug
Minion Pug

It can be upsetting and disorienting for your pets when humans transform themselves and their animals into unworldly beings like ghosts, Minions, Rocky, or Super Woman, 

And when pets get spooked by ghosts and goblins, they tend to run and hide to avoid danger. 

If you do nothing else this Halloween, make sure your pets are wearing their ID tags with your current cell number on it just in case your pet slips out when trick-or-treaters come to your door. 

Here are 9 Safety Tips to keep your pets safe on Halloween:

  • If you choose to dress up your pet, never leave them unattended while wearing their Halloween costume.
  • Make sure your pet's costume fits properly and doesn't' encumber their movements or cover their face, eyes, ears, and nose. 
  • Halloween candy, especially sweet confections containing chocolate or xylitol (a sugar substitute used in sugar-free candies and gum) can be dangerous to your pet. It's best to avoid feeding candy to your pet. 
  • Make sure you put your Halloween goodies in a safe place where your pet can't get access to them.
  • Keep jack-o-lanterns and lit candles away and out of reach of pets.
  • Keep Glow sticks and jewelry away from pets. They can be toxic if ingested. This awful tasting liquid can make animals salivate excessively and exhibit odd behavior.
  • Keep your pets in a quiet back room away from the front door where they can easily escape when tricker or treaters arrive. If your pet is nervous around strangers or tends to bite when stressed, they will feel safer in a room away from Halloween activity while the trick or treaters are out. Your dog will thank you for taking the stress off of them.
  • Don't leave pets outside unattended during Halloween trick or treating. If left alone, your pet can get spooked and even escape. Plus some people can do cruel things to pets, especially black cats.
  • Your pet's best chance of finding their way back to you if they ever go missing is by wearing identification tags and having a microchip. You can even put a GPS tracking collar on them.

Have a safe and fun Howl-o-ween!

9 Successful Ways to Reduce Your Pet's Stress

Are you feeling stressed out? Are you worried and anxious?

In these uncertain times, you must take care of yourself because your stress affects your animal family.

Bruce tends to worry a lot.

If you're feeling worried, anxious, or stressed, then there's a good chance your animal family is also feeling stress, worry, and anxiety.

Animals prefer to live in a calm, peaceful environment. When the energy around them feels stressful, it can cause behavioral issues and illnesses.

The good news is there are several things you can easily do right now to help you and your animal family to feel calm in mind and body.

I asked my animal family and other animals to offer solutions to reduce our stress levels.

First, the animals want to remind us that we are all in this together. If nothing else, the Covid-19 pandemic is teaching us that we are all inter-connected. It's also telling us that we are part of a community, and we need to take care of ourselves and each other because we are all in this together. 

They also want us to stay positive, as well as being kind and compassionate to one another.

Animals suggest the following stress-reducing tips:
  1. Stay grounded like a wise old tree.
  2. BE in the present moment: try not to worry about tomorrow or yesterday.
  3. Breathe. When we are scared, we tend to hold our breath.
  4. Frequent play is an excellent stress reducer. 
  5. Play music that is uplifting, yet calming.
  6. Take frequent walks and connect with Mother Nature and Father Sky. 
  7. Meditate with your animals to create a calm, peaceful energy that is soothing and nurturing.
  8. Offer Reiki.
  9. Communicate with your animal family about all the changes and challenging times ahead.

Mona says receiving Reiki is a good stress reducer.

Distant Animal Communication and Animal Reiki sessions are two ideal ways to reduce stress while promoting overall well-being while strengthening your bond.

Talking with your animal during an Animal Communication session is similar to talk therapy in that you and your pets can express your thoughts, feelings, and viewpoints to prevent misunderstandings and miscommunications. Clear communication can eliminate issues and problems on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level.

A distant Reiki session is like a spa treatment for you and your animal family that creates harmony and balance. Reiki promotes deep relaxation, which fosters self-healing along with an overall sense of peace, stability, and well-being.

One of the bonuses of distant Animal Communication and Reiki sessions is you and your pets receive their many benefits from the comfort of your home.

Bodhi says it's important to keep smiling.

There is no time like the present to de-stress your lives.

Your pets will thank you for taking good care of yourself and them!

5 Benefits of Animal Communication

Have you ever thought, "I wish I could get answers directly from my pets?"

Or "I know my animal is trying to tell me something. But what?"

Bodhi Bear

Telepathy, which means feeling another soul or spirit over a distance, is the universal language that all species speak including humans and animals. Animal Communicators, like myself, interpret animals' thoughts, feelings, and viewpoints using the telepathic connection.

Animal Communication empowers your pets by giving them a "voice" so they can share their thoughts, feelings, and viewpoints with you,

Communicating telepathically with your pets brings many rewards including letting them know how much you love, care, and respect them.

Here are 5 Benefits of Telepathic Animal Communication:

  • Animal Communication allows you to make decisions and work in partnership with your animals instead of second-guessing what they may be thinking or want. It empowers animals when they can have a say in the decisions that affect them like if they want a new animal friend or end-of-life decisions.
  • Telepathic Animal Communication can clear up misunderstandings and miscommunications that can lead to unwanted issues and problems like separation anxiety or inappropriate bathroom behaviors.
  • As teachers and healers, pets welcome the opportunity to share their wisdom and offer guidance.
  • Gives you a chance to share your heart with your pet creating mutual understanding, harmony, trust, and love.
  • Animals feel loved when their voices are heard and understood.

Oak Tree Muse

Trees are wise teachers and poets.

These grounded Spirits spiral upward toward the heavens as their branches spread like an umbrella offering shelter to any one who happens by.

I credit Trees for playing a significant role in the development of my telepathic and Reiki skills.

When I began learning Reik many years ago, I first practiced with Trees instead of with people and animals. At the time, I intuitively felt Trees would help me stay grounded and focused as I learned how to be an open-hearted conduit for the spiritual energy known as Reiki.

When I was reawakening my telepathic animal communication gifts a couple of years later, I again turned to my trusted friends the trees. To this day, I love talking with trees. Their wisdom and knowledge continue to humble me.

An Oak Tree caught my attention telepathically the other day as I was contemplating the role trees have played in the evolution of my animal communication and Reiki skills.

She seemed amused by my inquisitiveness and interest in her musings.

I then heard the Oak Tree Muse:

I swing. I sway. I dance with the wind.
Soil and rain nurtures my soul as
My roots run deep into the crevices of Mother Earth.
Keeping me connected with all of Creation.
Each day I deal with whatever comes my way.
Even when losing a branch or leaves, I'm rewarded with new growth. 
Witnessing the cycles of life as I spiral towards the heavens above,
Welcoming those seeking safe haven in my trunk and canopy of branches.
Even in death, I shelter those who call me home. 
We Trees are wise old beings settled in our stately ways,
Offering lessons in standing tall and being grounded. 
Listen with an open heart and you will hear the truth of who you are.

I thanked the Oak for taking the time to share her wisdom with me.

Next time you feel a tree reach out to you, I  hope you will open your heart to feel their wisdom as they have much to share.

What Does A Tree Witness in a Year?

Have you ever wondered what a tree sees and experiences in its lifetime?

Trees are grounded spiritual beings who hold ancient wisdom from observing the cycles of life. They are open-hearted enjoy helping others like birds, wildlife, and insects.

These wise teachers love sharing their knowledge and they can be quite poetic. A tree once told me Trees are the real poets of the world, not humans. The Tree mused it loves whispering into the ears of poets.

Besides cleaning the air we breathe, Trees provide many different beings shelter and food in their trunks and outspread branches. Their roots drink in the energy of Mother Nature which supports the canopy of branches and leaves.

A friend sent me this interesting video of a tree and its visitors throughout the course of a year. It's enlightening and fascinating to see how important trees are to all species who depend on them, including humans.

As you can see, this tree has observed a lot in a year. Can you imagine what Giant Sequoia or Redwood Trees have witnessed in their lifetime?

Coyote Morning Wisdom

In every walk with nature, 

one receives far more than he seeks. 

--John Muir

I love being out in Nature. It reduces my stress because it's the one place I can go that makes sense especially in this fast-paced, crazy world we live in. Disconnecting from my phone, computer, and other electronic stimuli allow me to become a human being again.

I especially love it when I come across wildlife on my walks with my dog, Bodhi. Observing wildlife brings out my childlike curiosity. I learn a lot by communicating telepathically with them like in my recent blog post, Discovering New Creatures Using Telepathy.

Thanks to the abundant winter rains that ended Northern California's severe drought, the local fauna and flora are flourishing this summer. It's uplifting observing the different raptors like the Hawks, Kites, and Kestrels as they dive and grab the voles, which are meadow mice, out of their holes and fly away with their prey.

The other morning Bodhi and I spied a Coyote on our morning walk in the open space near our home. This wasn't the first time we've seen coyotes. However, we've seen more coyotes this year than I can ever remember in the 25-plus years I've lived here especially in the early morning.

From a safe distance, we quietly watched the majestic young Coyote as he sauntered along the trail. That is until he stopped to hunt for a vole in a hole similar to the picture below.

Hunting Coyote

When a wild animal crosses my path, I like to reach out to them telepathically. I understand when wild animals are too busy to communicate given they are constantly looking for food and trying to survive whatever might come their way.

However, I'm grateful when an Animal or Nature Spirit takes the time out of their busy day to share their hearts with me.

I always start my communication with an animal, wild or domesticated, by asking, "Is this a good time to talk with you?"

If the animal says "yes," we start a conversation. If the animal replies, "No," then I thank the animal and move on.

A key aspect of telepathic animal communication is to always thank the animal them after communicating with them, even if you don't feel you received a message.

When you say, "thank you," it tells the animal that you respect them which builds mutual trust and understanding. Showing reverence for another living being also increases your telepathic abilities.

When the Coyote said "yes" to my invitation to communicate, he shared the following message:

I appreciate you reaching out to me as I welcome your heartfelt connection. While Coyotes can act non-schlant, we are keenly aware of the harshness and fear coming from the humans we encounter. For the most part, we are not interested in humans.  It's all about having fun while trying to survive. 
Coyotes are misunderstood and vilified by humans which threaten our lives and ways of being. Like people, we are an intricate part of the web of life. We need you as much as you need us. We appreciate it when you see the world from our perspective as you see through the misconceptions that surround us and our brethren, the Wolves.
While we may be perceived as the Trickster of the Animal World or killer of cats, we have as much right to survive as any other species. It can be hard when we are vilified. Yet, we don't let it bother us as we continue living our lives.
It's been a good year for me and my pack given the abundance of food and water. The last few years were challenging. We are survivors and we feel stronger because of the drought. 
We are happy living life with a full belly. We urge people to take a break and connect with us and Nature. 
When our conversation ended, I thanked the Coyote for taking time out of his busy day to share his wisdom with me.

This is a video of the Coyote I communicated with:

I Spy A Coyote

As Bodhi and I continued our walk, I reflected on the message the Coyote shared with me.

According to Native American Indian lore, Coyotes symbolize the tricksters, shape-shifters, and transformers in Nature. In this way, Coyote's wisdom or medicine teaches us about cultivating flexibility with a playful sense of humor. It's also about experiencing the magic in life while staying open to the unexpected.

On a deeper level, Coyote medicine asks that we see the truth behind the illusions, misconceptions and false impressions. Coyote tends to employ trickery or deception to achieve its goals.

When a Coyote crosses my path, I know it's time to lighten up and not take life too seriously. Coyote Medicine reminds me to simplify my life with a sense of humor towards whatever may be coming my way, or this Jokester may play a trick on me to make sure I'm too set in my ways.

Mother Nature and her myriad of creatures have a lot of wisdom to share with humans. I hope the next time you come across a wild animal like a Coyote, you'll strike up a telepathic conversation with them to find out what inspiration and wisdom they want to convey.

Easy Animal Communication Heart Meditation

Do You Live In Your Heart?

Did you know all spiritual beings, whether human, animal, plant or mineral, are born with the ability to communicate using the universal language of telepathy

Learning Telepathic Animal Communication and Reiki is a life-long journey of self-discovery. The process begins by recognizing how it feels when you focus your awareness in your Heart Center where telepathy and Reiki emanate.

So be loving and kind to yourself as you reclaim your natural abilities to communicate telepathically and offer Reiki to all spiritual beings in the web of life.

My Heart Dog

Telepathic Animal Communication originates from your heart. Verbal language arises in your mind. Most spiritual beings live in their heart center not in their thinking minds like humans do.

This Heart Center Meditation is designed to help you access your heart center and its associated feelings so you can experience how being open-hearted affects your entire being: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.

Practice this short Heart Center Meditation for at least 5 minutes daily. The more you consciously spend time in your "heart center," the easier it is to access your telepathic and Reiki potential.

If at any stage during the meditation you feel frustrated or are unable to focus, take a break. Return to the meditation when you feel calm and relaxed in mind and body.

Remember, this meditation is not a test! It's a fun and easy way to discover the world from your heart center. 

Heart Center Meditation

  • Begin by either sitting or lying down in a comfortable relaxed position. Your eyes can be open or closed, whichever is most comfortable for you. 
  • Take a nice deep breath in and then slowly exhaling it out. Take another deep breath as you gently as you release your energy down through your legs as you feel your feet on the ground in connection with Mother Earth. 
  • As you continue to breathe slowly and deeply, focus your attention away from your busy mind with all its thoughts and worries to your heart center located in the middle of your chest. 
  • Imagine a beautiful blue loving light in your heart center.
  • Breathe this blue light in and out of your heart center for at least 30 seconds. The longer you spend feeling this beautiful blue energy in your heart center the better. 
  • As you continue to breathe through your heart center, recall a time when you felt unconditional love for any individual like a pet or child.
  • Don't "do" anything except be fully present as you experience the feeling of unconditional love you have for this individual. 
  • Spend a couple of minutes noticing how unconditional love feels throughout your entire being: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. 
Do you sense a shift in how you perceive the world around you when you're in your heart center?

I encourage you to keep a journal so you can ground your experiences in your writing.

If you need help with any of these exercises or have any questions, email me.

Bodhi Celebrates His Birthday with Girlfriends

Bodhi's Birthday Paw-ty with his girlfriends is a huge success!

Bodhi with special friend Sabrina Renee
It's hard to believe that my Puff Doggy, Bodhi Bear is 4 years old already. Boy time seems to fly by way too fast. 

To celebrate Bodhi's birthday this year, I thought it would be fun for him to spend time with some of his close friends. 

So Bodhi's week long Birthday Extravaganza was hatched. His week started off with good friend MacGuvyer the Puggle. Together, they ate Burger Bites. 

The Burger paw-ty was followed by Bodhi's Fuzzy Birthday Party with the Keesateers, Harvey, and Eli. 

Bodhi's 3rd and final paw-ty is with his girlfriends: Sabrina Renee the Golden Retriever along with Greta and Tonks, who are German Shepherds.

Bodhi shares his excitement as I tell him that his girlfriends are arriving shortly to celebrate his special day with him:

Here are Bodhi's paw-ty guests:

Greta and Tonk's Mom, Karen found an edgy way to display the party favors:

Finally, birthday cake for the birthday boy and his guests! 

The dogs patiently waited to eat BIRTHDAY CAKE!!!!!!

Once the cake was eaten, Bodhi opened the wonderful gifts he received from his girlfriends and their Moms.

All in all, Bodhi's 4th Birthday Celebration was a lot of fun for  everyone. 

Bodhi wrote on his Facebook page, Puff Doggy
My mom is so silly but the best because she gives me so many paw-ties to celebrate my birthday.

I'm glad my fuzzy boy enjoyed his weeklong celebration. It makes me happy to make Bodhi happy. 

Thank you for joining in on Bodhi's Birthday Extravaganza as you helped make Bodhi's special day (or in his case, week) that much sweeter. 

See you next year for another Fuzzy Birthday . . .

Bodhi's Fuzzy Birthday Party

Bodhi is reunited with his Keeshonden friends, Eli and Harvey, to celebrate Bodhi's 4th Birthday.

Bodhi Bear Is A Paw-ty Animal!

As I mentioned in my last blog post, I love celebrating my dog's birthday. This year is no exception. Now 4 years old, Bodhi is quite popular, so I need to have few parties to accommodate his many dog friends. 

Today's party is all about his fuzzy friends, Eli and Harvey. Together, the 3 Keeshonden are affectionately known as The Keesateers.

Bodhi and I are thrilled that his DFFs (Dog Friends FurEver) and their mom, Julie, are coming to celebrate with us.

The Keesateers: Bodhi, Eli, and Harvey 

Bodhi shares his excitement about 5 minutes before his fuzzy friends arrive. 

Bodhi absolutely knew Eli and Harvey were close by because he ran to the window about 30 seconds before they drove up.

Once here, The Keesateers couldn't contain their excitement: 

It's Dog Paw-ty time:

The Fuzzy Fun and Games Begin:

All in all, it was a fuzz-filled day for everyone, the humans included! 

Now Bodhi and I need to rest up for his next Birthday Celebration with his girlfriends: Sabrina Renee, Greta, and Tonks tomorrow. 

Stayed tuned for more dog birthday fun. . .

Celebrating Bodhi the Keeshond's Birthday

Do You Celebrate Your Pet's Birthday or GotchYa Day?

My Keeshond and Birthday Boy, Bodhi Bear 

I do. I love showing my animal family how much I love them by celebrating their Birthdays and GotchYa Day each year. 

Okay, maybe I take it a bit far giving Bodhi a few parties but he's worth it. Plus I love making him a happy dog.

It's hard to believe he's 4 years old already. Time has flown by as it feels like only yesterday that he was just a baby puff.

Now he's grown up and quite the Puff Doggy.

"Is It Burger Time?"

Bodhi Bear loves celebrating his birthday with good friends like his puppyhood buddy and DFF, MacGuyver the Puggle aka "Mush-A-Moo."

This year, Bodhi asked his Godfather, Craig, to grill up some Birthday Burgers for his special day.

Birthday Burgers on the Grill

So being a great Dog Father, Craig tossed a few dog patties on the grill for his dog and mine. 

Both dogs waited patiently for their burger "bites."

And then the big moment finally arrived:

A fun time was had by all, especially the boys who loved eating the burger bites. 

Happy Birthday, Bodhi Bear!!!!!
I Love You!!!

But wait, there are more birthday surprises for Bodhi Bear:

Stayed tuned for the Keesateers and more birthday fun for the fuzzy birthday boy. . .

Discovering New Creatures Using Telepathy

A lot can be learned from communicating telepathically with different species. 

For over 30 years, I've developed and honed my telepathic skills as an Animal Muse so I can easily and instantly translate what animals are thinking and feeling for humans. 

In other words, I speak fluent telepathy which helps me to better understand animals and other living beings in the web of life.

Thanks to my telepathic abilities, I've discovered a lot about the world around me by communicating telepathically with all species including insects. 

A great example of this happened a couple of weeks ago when my dog Bodhi discovered an unusual insect flying around our neighborhood that I had never seen before.

Is it a moth? Or is it a Hummingbird?

Bodhi first noticed the bug when it flew by his ear to consume nectar from my neighbor's Salvia plant during our last walk of the evening right after dusk.

It was hard to get a good look at what was buzzing Bodhi given the lack of light. I saw it flying around the Salvia but had a hard time getting a clear look at it. From what I could tell, it appeared to be a moth-like creature but seemed too large to be a moth. To confuse me even further, it flew and acted like a hummingbird. Then, as quickly as this unfamiliar insect appeared, it disappeared into the darkness of night.

While the whole encounter intrigued me, I didn't give the sighting a second thought until the next evening when Bodhi and I walked past my astilbe bush. I noticed quite a bit of activity going on. Despite the oncoming darkness, I saw three of these unfamiliar insects feeding on the plant.

This time I was able to get a better look as I had three of them to gently focus on. I enjoyed watching them fly and feed on the flowers. The move I focused my attention on them, the more I noticed how much they looked and moved like a hummingbird.

How could that be? I had never heard of a hummingbird feeding at night so I didn't think it was an actual bird. It had to be a moth. Or was it?

When I want to know something about animals or insects, I ask them telepathically. I find asking the animal in their native language is sometimes the fastest and most reliable way to receive answers to my questions.

So I tuned into these fascinating creatures telepathically and asked them what they were. They playfully replied, "I'm a moth! No, I'm a hummingbird! We're both!" They went on to repeat these words a couple more times for me.

I then thanked the three "Hummingbird Moths" for talking with me. Given it was now pitch black, Bodhi and I headed home.

Hummingbird Hawk-Moth feeding on an Astilbe flower.

As soon as we got inside, I immediately Googled "Hummingbird Moth." To my surprise and delight, the search turned up the answer which came from the website This informative site confirmed what I received telepathically.

It turns out these flying insects were right when they told me that they were a Hummingbird Moth because that's exactly what they are! They're also known as Hummingbird Hawk-Moths. These unusual moths originate from Tomato Hornworms which are loathed by gardeners given their potential for destroying crops like tomatoes and tobacco. Yet once these destructive caterpillars morph, they turn into beautiful moths that look and fly like a hummingbird.

Hummingbird Hawkmoths are mostly nocturnal but can sometimes be seen during the day. They visit a large variety of night-blooming flowers which they pollinate while feeding with their long proboscises. According to the website, Butterflies and
The Sphingidae are strong fliers, with a rapid wingbeat. Most are medium to large moths, with heavy bodies; wingspread reaches 5 inches or more in some species. Although a few are active in the daytime, most species in the group are active at dusk. Most, but not all, sphingids feed much like hummingbirds, hovering in front of a flower and sipping nectar through the extended proboscis. The proboscis rolls up like a party noisemaker when not in use, and may not be readily evident in a resting moth. Some species lack scales on large portions of their wings, and therefore have transparent or clear wings. These are commonly referred to as "clearwing hummingbird moths." (Note however that the scientifically accepted common name of "Hummingbird clearwing" refers specifically to Hemaris thysbe.) 
Since the Hummingbird Moth is most active at night, I wasn't sure if I'd get a picture of this unique moth.  A couple of days later, after our morning walk, there was a Hummingbird Moth doing its thing on my astilbe.

For the first time, I got a close look at it. It was remarkable to watch it in action as it pollinated the astilbe. I have to say, it's quite a striking moth to behold and incredibly beautiful to watch. I also found the hawkmoth fun to communicate with.

The next time you come across an animal or insect that you're unfamiliar with, I encourage you to start up a telepathic conversation with them. Start with something simple like "Hello" and see what response you receive. If you "hear" a response, great! If don't, don't worry. It takes time, practice and patience to rekindle your telepathic abilities. I encourage to you keep trying and not give up on yourself.

It's also always important to always thank animals, insects and even humans for their willingness to communicate with you telepathically even if you don't feel you heard their reply. Keep trying because this is how to strengthen your relationship with other species as your develop your telepathic abilities.

Who knows what species is waiting for you to discover and communicate telepathically with. If you do, please leave your experiences here on my blog or on my Facebook page.
