Reisa Stone: Communicate With Your Pet, Part II

In my last post, I taught you an exercise to communicate with your pet, and promised you meditative exercises to deepen your skills.

My favorite meditation is in and with Nature. I empty my mind and enter the forest or field expecting the miraculous, and am never disappointed. If you breathe deeply and listen, you'll hear the voices of wildlife, trees and even rocks.

I've been very rushed, working 16-18 hour days expanding my business (besides doing animal communication, I'm marketing my horse art). I was so distracted, I left my glove compartment open and drained the car battery. Heavens to mergatroid, I had plans! I felt my heart pounding and my mind started racing. 

As I waited for my boost, I asked the huge, lush pine tree beside me for a word or two. He said, "Slow down. All will be provided." 

I put aside less necessary errands and made a side trip to my favorite wilderness area. I walked the gentle green (and muddy!) slopes, calming my mind, enjoying just breathing.

On my way out, I spotted a Cooper's Hawk. She was sitting quietly on a telephone wire, gazing over a fallow field. 

I suddenly felt my tiredness. It's been one of those weeks where I've made those extra calls, sent the extra emails---with no response. I wanted to be the hawk. I asked her, "Resting?"

She replied, "I soar, and I rest. If you soar above, there are many opportunities. I ate a mouse today. Now I'm sitting. The fields have more bare spots than full ones. Soar and rest."

I ate today. I drove a car, walked, enjoyed working electronics, heat and running water. Maybe the unreturned calls and emails are for the best, and what if everyone did respond to my clever posts on Facebook?

I'll stop thinking of the bare spots as empty.

This is today's meditation, brought to you by a pine tree and a hawk.

Animal Communication learning materials are available on my website.

Seminar: Talking With Animals

Only 2.5 weeks to Vancouver Pet Expo! Dozens of exhibitors, from rescues to pet nutrition to obedience competitors.

Be entertained at my seminar, Talking With Animals, 2 pm Saturday, March 3rd in the Pacific National Exhibition Forum. 

If you were here for the Olympics, it's the figure skating venue. Contrary to rumour, I will not be skating with dogs :-D 

Enter a draw for a free Animal Communication session. Make sure to come on time, and get your name in! 

See you there!

Reisa Stone: Will My Pet Spill the Beans?

Several people have asked: "Will my pet keep talking to you after our Animal Communication session?"

Immediately upon finishing a session, I thank your pet, and say, "Goodbye, unless your Mom/Dad wants us to connect again."

I then look forward to email updates from you about how you and your pet are doing. When you book another phone session, I reconnect with your baby.

It's an ethical violation for me to willfully stay in contact with your pet. Imagine if you were in family counseling, and your counselor chatted with your family members on their cell phones between sessions, without your knowledge. 

Invasive, yes? 

My job is to help you and your pet, not creep you out.

Occasionally, an extremely lonely animal will reconnect. I inform my client this has happened, in a low key way. This usually leads to my client finding ways to enrich their pet's life, such as more focused play and training time, or arranging social time with other animals. 

Sometimes it's a case of moving a horse to a more stimulating area in the barn/pasture, or putting a chair under a window for a house pet. I had a foster bunny who acted aggressive----until I "got it" and moved the couch so he could play tag with me!

Abuse is of course unacceptable. I haven't yet encountered a human who cares enough to engage an Animal Communicator, who is an abuser. If I did, I would take the same responsible action as any reasonable person. Since the authorities are unlikely to believe the pet told me, I would have to have hard evidence.

I do, of course, listen to many tales from animals in shelter and rescue "limbo." I stay in touch and support them until they find a home. Then I disconnect, with love.

Don't worry. After your session, your pet isn't likely to speak with me without your permission. Their mission is to have a more harmonious life with you.

Kind regards,

Pet Reincarnation by Thoreau

My friend David found this quote. I burst into tears, as its exactly the feeling I get connecting with others who have lost loved ones, and discover they are never gone.
"I long ago lost a hound, a bay horse, and a turtle dove, and am still on their trail. Many are the travellers I have spoken concerning them, describing their tracks and what calls they answered to. I have met one or two who had heard the hound, and the tramp of the horse, and even seen the dove disappear behind a cloud, and they seemed as anxious to recover them as if they had lost them themselves."
~  Henry David Thoreau
