Ever since Peaches went missing I became extremely sad, I said to myself that I couldn’t live without my precious kitty. But once I found you, my thoughts turned around and you helped me in my search for Peaches. You have amazing skills that I never knew existed until this year. They seemed so unreal until I got involved in your work. I don’t know how you do it but it is amazing. I thank you Susan, without end, for all your kind generosity and talent you provided for me. You helped me to realize that Peaches is happy where she is, and that if I lover her that much I would let her go. You have encouraged me to never give up and always look for something that I love. You have helped me so much Susan, I don’t know what I would have done without you.
I will intently search for Peaches this summer and the lady that took her in.
From my previous cats that have gone missing I have let them go, but from Peaches I think about her every day more than anyone in this world and from that I know me and Peaches are suppose to be together……………….forever.

“Hi Susan,

Thank you so much for the enlightening and inspiring conversation we had, I am very happy to hear that I am more worried about things than my pets!  They mean so much to me, and have helped me stay grounded and sane for as long as I can remember.  I am relieved to know they are all happy, and although finding their way with this new situation, that all will eventually be good and harmonious. 

I have relayed yours and Meykha’s thoughts to my hubby, and we will both be working towards the steps you outlined…

Also, thank you very much for your beautifully presented notes, and for letting me know that my beloved animals feel my joy and pride in them. ” Sandy and furry family

Lovebirds with a mission…

I looked for an animal communicator because I was starting to feel desperate about Luigi the Lovebird and his ongoing illnesses.  Even though he is under the care of a good vet, I was afraid he was going to die and wanted to know if he was hiding more illness from me (as birds do).  Susan pinpointed some problems with his food and environment.  I have taken steps to correct these deficiencies, like ordering special sterile seeds from a avian vet in Australia!  I’ll do whatever it takes because Luigi is relying on me to take care of him.
“Luigi’s roommate, Binky, has some emotional needs that I have to fine tune my responses to and Susan was able to articulate the needs and the remedies to me in a way that made complete sense.
I was generally agnostic about animal communication before Susan’s call but now I’m convinced because she totally hit the nail on the head about Luigi’s health and Binky’s state of mind.  The personal messages Binky and Luigi had for me were very loving, relevant, helpful and precious.  Worth every penny and more.”  MMc Victoria

“I just wanted to say WOW! When I wanted to try it I was a little bit sceptical I brought it up with my mom and some friends and stuff to see what they thought and they all told me it was a waste of money, they don’t believe in that stuff. After this session, let me tell you, they aren’t sceptics anymore. Some things you told me, there is no way you could have known unless my horses told you. I am so very grateful I happened to stumble upon your world of animal communication. I will definitely be back, you have opened up my mind and really helped me see things from a new perspective. Thank you again!” KH  B.C.

Long distance reiki, Tips for Litter Box Management…Cat treats

Labryinth in my front yard

Animal Spirit Communication – May 2010

Spring is here, which in Traditional Chinese Medicine terms  is a time of new growth and forward movement. A time for cleansing and clearing of the old and welcoming in the new.  I hope that your are enjoying the nicer weather with your animal companion and having some fun.  If it’s raining don’t  forget the rain coat for you and your dog,  they know it helps.  Professional animal communicator Nedda Wittels has written a few articles that I am very pleased to add to my library section.  If you have an interesting article you would like included please just contact me and I can add it.

I’ve been busy with radio and TV interviews, long distance reiki sessions and animal communication.  I hope I have time to add another labryinth this year.

Thank you to the Kid Carson Show on 94.5 The Beat, in Vancouver BC for the opportunity to share animal communication with their listeners.   Special congratulations to  Megan  who was the first listener to contact me and was the winner of  an animal communication session.  Soon to be posted on the video blog.

Tips for Litter Box Management– Is your cat having some litter box issues?   I am pleased and proud to present fellow animal communicator  Nedda Wittels.  M.S., M.A., Nedda is an internationally known Animal Communicator, Shamballa Master, Light Worker, and Teacher. She  has written this very insightful, and helpful article that has some  great suggestions  I hadn’t seen before.  Our senior cats have some special requirements that we can easily provide for if we know what to do.  Nedda has written several helpful articles that will be highlighted here. 

Help for Biting Dogs–  “Nipping and Biting are normal behaviors in the world of the wild dog, coyote, or wolf.  When living with humans, however, these behaviors are unacceptable.  How can we help our dogs give up their natural ways of communicating and interacting with one another? ”   Animal communicator Nedda Wittels again offers her helpful insights on a potentially volatile situation for both the dog and their human companion.

 Long distance reiki can be extremely beneficial in many situations but was particularly helpful for Gracie, a 3 year old   Labradoodle in California.  Gracie was experiencing complications from a hip surgery and I was asked to connect and send Gracie a series of  healing energy treatments.  Gracie responded very well and I reported back every day with the results of the reiki and messages that came up.  With this information her family was able to respond instantly to her needs and suggestions.  The reiki treatments can be very powerful when teamed up with animal communication. Here is what Gracie’s family has to say…

“Thank you for sending healing energy to Gracie.  She was so much more alert and content after your sessions with her.  I really appreciated having feedback on how she was feeling and what her needs were.  It was so very helpful to have Susan communicate with Gracie, who was recovering from two consecutive surgeries.  There is no doubt that Susan’s Reiki was helpful, and her connection with Gracie was right on and invaluable  ..J. CA

I built  a labryinth last spring by mowing the pattern in my front field.  It was fun to build and maintain and was amazing to walk.  Labyrinths have been a part of healing for years and you can usually find one at a local church or hospital.  Animals like  them too and enjoy the energy and release that can be felt by walking in the concentric patterns.   More about horses and labryinths later, it can be an incredible training aid that can be fun to walk as well.

Practice Animal, Millie – I hope you enjoyed practising your animal communication skills with Millie.   You can read  about her here and compare your notes.  She is a  happpy,  dog and loves to play in her fenced yard.  Her yard is fenced in high page wire and there is  large fir and cedar trees along with a big sandbox area where she buries her food. Her favorite toy is a ball on  a rope that she will bring you to throw.   She loves to be with her 3 boys and likes to sneak on the trampoline when you’re not looking.  She likes to come inside and be a part of the action but she gets excited and can knock over the boys with her enthusiasm. She likes to go for walks with her human  Mom and boys, and loves to go out with her Dad when he goes on the quad.  If you would like to have more info validated please just email.  Thank you.


Your Animal Companion Wants You To Know …

“I found the whole session just fascinating…”

Many Thanks, Susan, for your communication session with Polar Bear! 

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but to my delight you seemed to have a lot of insight into what our family life is like – so I am convinced that this came from Polar Bear (as you are in British Columbia and we are in Ontario).

Your candid thoughts and insights were clearly stated and easy to follow.  Being able to know the things I can do to make Polar Bear’s life even a little more comfortable are greatly appreciated and I have implemented changes mentioned in your report. 

I will not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone and everyone who will listen!  Certainly the staff at our veterinary clinic, and family members and friends have been waiting to see the results with deep curiosity! I think they will be as impressed as I was.

You have a gift.  I feel so fortunate that I happened upon your ad, and was able to tap into it.

I found the whole session just fascinating… and I have talked to Polar Bear (face to face) about some of the things that came out of it.  And I don’t know if he actually understands me, or just recognizes the tone of my voice …  But I want him to know it just makes me appreciate him all the more, knowing we think so much alike!    You say “Polar thinks it’s all about him”… Well, so do I!  LOL 

I hope my feedback is perhaps helpful.

Thanks so much again, Susan.  (I don’t know *how* your ad made it all the way on to the … – but I am so thrilled I happened to see it that night!)


“It was a very special and emotional experience for me.”

Hi Susan,
I just wanted to say thank you again for our conversation today. It was a very special and emotional experience for me. My mom was really happy to hear everything as well. I think as well that this was fate. In the future I would like to work with you again. Thank you so much again, this was so amazing. 🙂

Again, I can’t thank you enough!

Long distance reiki helps Amy after a vicous dog attack

Amy is doing superb! She has completely kicked it. I am grateful for your help. The biggest revelation has been changing the way we think and speak about her situation. After you debriefed me, Neil and I shifted our thinking and our speech – she’s a warrior, congratulations for being done, etc. I honestly believe it made a huge difference. Thank you!

Animal communication offers insight and hope with end of life issues for our beloved animal friends…

THANK YOU for all readings and your care.  The information you shared was instrumental in helping me come to terms with the reality of Carli’s state of health.    I had convinced myself that she would outlive my doggie and that she was in good health – with the little box issue only being a naughty behaviour option. 
God bless you Susan – and little Carli – and again, thank you for your wonderful help.   We will definitely share your services with other pet owners in need of guidance.

“I’m filled with appreciation for what she does. Thank you Susan.”

Susan is great. She did a communication with my cat several weeks after she
passed away and the information was really helpful and insightful. There
were so many things that resonated as right/true. I also learned more than a
few things about my wise, very beloved companion (and myself). The whole
process, from initially contacting Susan to the consultation, was wonderful.
She’s sincere, caring, professional and was able to connect with my cat so
well. I’m filled with appreciation for what she does. Thank you Susan.

Animals composing music – Birds on a Wire

February 17, 2010 by  
Filed under Amazing videos and audio

 This video created by Alice H Cash of Birds on a Wire is set to music played by her.   I’ll let her tell the story…

Reading a newspaper, I saw a picture of birds on the electric wires. I cut out the photo and decided to make a song, using the exact location of the birds as notes (no Photoshop edit). I knew it wasn’t the most original idea in the universe. I was just curious to hear what melody the birds were creating.

I sent the music to the photographer, Paulo Pinto, who I Googled on the internet. He told his editor, who told a reporter and the story ended up as an interview in the very same newspaper.

Here I’ve posted a short video made with the photo, the music and the score (composed by the birds).

Music made with Logic.
Video made with After Effects.

Dr. Mehmet Oz Declares Reiki as His #1 Alternative Medicine Secret
“If Dr. Mehmet Oz is talking about Reiki, all of America is talking about it and looking for ways to learn about it.” Reiki Master Rose De Dan says that with health being at the top of people’s 2010 resolution list, learning Reiki is a great next step to take, and offers six tips on how to choose the right training.

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) January 9, 2010 — Reiki Masters across America and the world had cause for celebration on January 6 when Dr. Mehmet Oz revealed his Ultimate Alternative Medicine Secrets for 2010 during his nationally broadcast afternoon talk show. He ranked Reiki #1. Dr. Oz said, “Reiki is one of my favorites, we’ve been using it for years in the Oz family, and we swear by it.”

Before his popularity as a TV personality through his five-year association with Oprah, Dr. Oz incorporated Reiki into his open-heart surgeries through the assistance of Reiki Master Pamela Miles. On the show, Miles spoke about the benefits of Reiki and offered a demonstration to an audience member who had a headache, which quickly disappeared.

Rose De Dan, Reiki Master and founder of Seattle, WA – based Wild Reiki and Shamanic Healing LLC (Tails of a Healer: Animals, Reiki and Shamanism” is thrilled that Reiki is finally getting the attention it deserves. “If Dr. Mehmet Oz is talking about Reiki, all of America is talking about it and looking for ways to learn about it.”

Reiki is a non-invasive form of energy medicine that balances the body, mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually, enabling the body to do what it does best — heal itself. De Dan explains, “Reiki assists in accelerating healing from injury/illness, promotes relaxation and stress reduction, reduces or eliminates pain. Reiki strengthens the immune system, assists in clearing emotional or physical trauma, and offers quality of life support for those who are aging or in hospice care. Knowing Reiki is like having your own personal healing kit at your fingertips.”

De Dan says that with health being at the top of people’s 2010 resolution list, learning Reiki is a great next step to take. Taking a Reiki class offers people greater personal control over their own health and healing. They can also use it to help others in their family, including their pets. De Dan suggests Googling “Reiki Master” and the name of the city closest to you to find a practitioner in your community. She offers 6 tips on how to choose the right training.

1) Attend a class in person, rather than online, for maximum benefit.
2) Inquire about class size. Small classes offer more personal guidance. Ten students or less is best.
3) Don’t be in hurry. Take training one level at a time for best effect and to integrate the healing energy and changes to your benefit.
4) Find a Reiki Master Teacher who offers ongoing support and guidance and access to a community of Reiki practitioners.
5) Teachers who have active healing practices can offer a wealth of insights and opportunities to support your growth.
6) Years of experience and credentials are good things to check. Trust your intuition in selecting teacher feels best for you.

De Dan says that the general public is still relatively unaware that Reiki is offered as a complementary modality in many U.S. hospitals, as well as worldwide. Outside of hospitals, De Dan says that there are many thousands of Reiki practitioners in the U.S. and millions around the world.

Helping two spirits to understand each other

Canadian Warmblood Navarre at home

Canadian Warmblood Navarre at home


It’s true what you say, that animal communication creates a deeper bond. Even when you don’t do it yourself.

I had the privelege to communicate with a beautiful Canadian Warmblood and his human Mom about some  issues that were very concerning.   I always try to make sure that I  get answers to all questions that are asked  and it may involve a few emails between each other.  Here is a little of what Kirstin has reported back to me about our animal spirit communication.

First of all I have to tell you that I rode Navarre today for the first time since he misbehaved so badly last week! Due to the weather he hadn’t been ridden for four days and even though he is a very forward horse he didn’t put one foot wrong. I was so happy afterwards and I thanked him. I am sure that he felt what I was saying in words.
Without you talking to him I wouldn’t have had the confidence, that’s for sure!

I think I should really start trail riding him. Since he has mentioned it to you he might be ready for it.

I am glad that he mentioned his blue blanket. I would not have put it on this year as I don’t believe in blanketing a horse. But his previous owners gave it to me when I bought Navarre and I assume he has been wearing it the years before.

No, you did not provide too much information. I am gad that you pass everything on without filtering it. Of course it is a lot and sometimes confusing but that’s why it is in writing. I can get over it as often as I want. 🙂
You have such a great gift being able to talk to animals. I wish I could learn it too, even if I could just communicate small things. I know they say that it lies in all of us but I don’t believe that everybody can learn to use it. I am a very technical person even though I strongly believe that there are things out there that we cannot see or logically understand.
I have been looking for workshops where I could at least try to learn the basics and maybe move on from there. But so far I haven’t found anything that I think could introduce me properly.
Doing some research on animal communication I got the impression that there are a lot of people who see a possibility to make money. And it is hard to find someone to trust. After all this is a trust thing because neither you nor I can really proof that there is a communication going on. I hope you understand what I mean.

By the way, this is why I chose you to talk to Navarre. When I looked for someone I ended up on so many websites and yours was the only one where I got the impression that it was about helping and that you really know what you are talking about. There are so many offers where my first feeling was that someone is trying to sell me something or talk me into something. And this is really sad. Of course this is a service and the communicator needs to make money too but it  should still be about the idea of helping two different spirits to understand each other. And this is the impression I got when I looked at your webpage. And I am really glad that I contacted you. 🙂

Thanks again for all the ideas to make Navarre happier.

Have a nice evening,
Kirstin, Germany
