Recently while working with a particularly difficult animal, it became apparent to me that my client had perhaps an unrealistic expectation when it came to what an animal communicator can and cannot do. This posting will address what you can expect and what you should not expect from a professional pet psychic, (animal communicator.)

Animal communicators are not a cure all, just as a therapist or counselor can communicate with the person having problems – it is dependent upon the party who needs help, accepting the help and communicating themselves. Just because we can talk with our children does not mean that they mind us, the same is true of our animal companions.

Most offending behaviors that animals display can be lumped into one of two categories. The first, acting out due to anger or frustration about their needs not being met. Secondly, a health problem that has not been properly identified and addressed. Sure, there are other reasons to act out, jealously, past trauma, a tension filled environment and other possible triggers, however the majority of “bad” behaviors often are triggered by the first two causes that were mentioned.

Let’s address the first one, your animals needs are not being met. Causes can include such issues as the following:

  1. Lack of stimulation, such as play time and outside time.
  2. A shortage of access to clean food and water.
  3. Improper grooming and or filthy living quarters.
  4. Too hot or too cold of an environment.
  5. Overloaded litter boxes.
  6. Strong smells in their environment.
  7. The introduction of additional animals and or family members which upset the balance of attention in the home.

Most of the above mentioned issues are fairly obvious and easy to rectify, however with the busy lives that us humans lead, sometimes our animal companions are accidently neglected. When an animal has a problem such as described above, they are limited in what they can do to get our attention. Frequently when an animal is upset, they will exhibit a “bad” behavior, such as tearing up furniture, urinating and defecating in unacceptable locations, barking uncontrollably or worse, becoming aggressive. Unfortunately us humans frequently address the problem behavior, without understanding the cause. When this approach is employed it only causes more frustration and potential anger and frustration in the animal, leading to the situation becoming worse.

The second major issue, undiagnosed health issues also can become a battle within the home. Consider the following issues and how difficult they may be for the animal to relay to us.

  1. Loss of hearing and or loss of sight.
  2. Toothache, difficulty eating and or loss of weight along with a irritable disposition.
  3. Muscle and or tendon damage, such as sprains, pulls and tears.
  4. Stomach ulcers, various cancers and other chronic conditions.
  5. Urinary infections, bladder stones, and such.
  6. Arthritis, and joint pain.
  7. Skin irritations.
  8. Allergies and food sensitivities.
  9. Mental issues, (dementia, chemical imbalances etc.)

With the above issues and many not listed, it may or may not be obvious to us as to what the problem is. In the case of a urinary infection, the animal may begin urinating outside of the litter box which could also indicate that the animal is upset with us over a need not being met. In the case of a urinary infection, we are lucky in that it is easy to diagnose by either ourselves or with a quick trip to the vet, and treatment is fairly straightforward. With such an issue as stomach ulcers, various cancers, as well as muscular and or neurological conditions, and so forth, diagnoses may be a bit more problematic. This is when a battery of tests is often embarked upon, frequently with each test costing more than the last one and all in an effort to pinpoint the cause of the problems being exhibited, by the process of elimination.

If your animal has a condition that is difficult to identify and is causing either you or the animal great difficulties either mentally or physically, and you are going through test after test or being presented a whole litany of tests and paths to follow by your animals medical care provider, a reputable animal communicator may be very beneficial in that they can help to pinpoint what tests should be performed. That being said, I would like to point out several things with regard to animal communicators, but first I would like to provide a definition of what an animal communicator or pet psychic is, as some of them call themselves.

Essentially an animal communicator is one who claims the following:

  1. That they have the ability to communicate with your animals.
  2. That the communication will be received via telepathy and that the animal need not be present.
  3. That this communication will be very detailed and include specific details that only you and your animal would know.
  4. That the communication can take place over any distance.
  5. That the communication with your animal is not dependent upon them being living, in that they can speak with those who have passed, as well as the living.

As a former skeptic of such abilities, I will outline how one can easily provide a convincing reading that is completely fraudulent with only a few pieces of information to go on.

  • Too often I am asked if I need to see a photograph of the animal that they wish to communicate with. If you claim to be able to communicate with the animal telepathically, why do you need a picture?
  • With a photograph the “animal communicator” now knows the physical appearance of the animal and clues to their age. Perhaps there is additional information about you and or the animal contained within the photo, such as a gathering with family or your animal’s sleeping quarters, toys etc.
  • Many “pet psychics” request the age of your animal and perhaps even their birthdate.
  • With knowledge of the breed, it is pretty easy to simply provide details that are consistent with qualities and or issues associated with that particular type of animal. Of course, once again, if you can talk telepathically with animals, why do you need to ask the animals age, when they can simply tell you how old they are.
  • Some “animal communicators” will even ask for details regarding the animal and it’s health. Once again, why provide details, when this person claims to communicate with animals, many are well intentioned, yet are hacks at it.
  • Simply being able to recognize or hear a language does not make us literate and or fluent in it.

With one possessing the name, age, physical description and or breed, perhaps even details regarding medical history and often times much more, it is easy to reinforce some common issues with the particular breed and situation as well as providing flattery regarding you and your animal – after all who would not want to hear pleasing platitudes regarding their animal, provided that it is the truth of course. How does one know if what the animal communicator is saying is genuine? After all with the wealth of information you provided, “in order to establish a connection” as so many animal communicators/pet psychics claim, how does one know what to believe and what not to believe?

I suggest applying the following to your search for a reputable animal communicator/pet psychic:

  • Do not provide details regarding your animal/s and or situation in your initial contact with a prospective animal communicator. Instead one should simply state their purpose for contact, such as wishing to contact a living animal and one that has passed as well. Please don’t include their breeds, ages, pictures or anything else in your email or phone call.
  • Once you have an appointment set up, resist the urge to send pictures to the animal communicator – we all love our fur babies, but the photos are not needed and can only hurt the opportunity to receive a quality reading. Also hold back on providing back story, or anything else for that matter. Instead you should sit down and write down the names of those you wish to contact, living and or deceased and then write down your questions for them. The further in advance that you do this, the easier the reading is. Writing down your questions in advance provides the animals an opportunity to formulate well thought out responses to your questions.

What to expect during a reading:

  1. At the start of the reading, do not volunteer information, simply state your primary objective and the name and species of the animal you wish to connect with. While the name is required, the species is not – it simply makes it much easier for the animal communicator to establish a connection as quickly as possible.
  2. Within a very short period of time, usually seconds, a description should begin coming through. Details to expect would be among the following:
  3. Physical appearance, such as  size, coloring, type of coat and in some cases the name of the breed.
  4. Frequently unusual markings, scars, past injuries, if passed – the way they passed, or what claimed their life will come through.
  5. Favorite toys, games, foods, treats, activities, memories and more will very often come through.
  6. Your animals age, (bearing in mind that the gestation period counts towards overall age) perhaps even specific ages or dates in respect to you and your relationship with the animal, such as how long they have lived with you.
  7. Bear in mind that not all animals communicate the same, just as not all humans have the ability to sing well.
  8. With a good connection, the communication should be very “conversational” and not in the least bit cryptic.
  9. If your animal has passed, it is very common for something that has happened recently to you since their passing being brought up, frequently even details from earlier during the day you receive the reading will be brought forth.
  10. Occasionally details that you are unable to confirm right away will come through, simply make a note of them and later they will either come to pass or make sense to you.

Additional details to consider regarding the relationship between your animal, yourself and the animal communicator:

  • The animal knows what their person is doing – your animals are dialed into you nearly 24/7 on a telepathic level. This applies to those in spirit as well.
  • If an animal’s person has contacted an animal communicator, trust me – the animal is all ears. Your animal companions are listening, responding to your inquires and or comments is up to them.
  • So much of telepathic communication is dependent upon what the intent is, so when the animal and the pet psychic look to connect the connection is usually secured within seconds. This takes place with the animal in the same room as the animal communicator, or over vast distances such as thousands of miles away.
  • The animal does not need to be present with their person.
  • The animal must be awake, if the animal has passed, they no longer sleep and therefore we do not have to worry about if they are awake or not.

Is it possible that there will be times when your animal will not communicate?

The answer is a simple yes, for many reasons they may not respond, including but not limited to the following:

  1. If the relationship between the two of you was not very good, they may hold a grudge and not respond – though they can still hear you.
  2. If the animal is asleep they will usually not connect.
  3. When distracted by a demanding environment, such as outrunning a predator, it is possible that they will be too busy to connect.
  4. Animals, like us tend to focus on what is physically in front of them and when in unfamiliar environments they tend to be distracted easily.
  5. Animals that have passed tend to be very easy to connect with, and frequently their communication is improved upon their passing (in several instances where I have communicated with the animal well before passing and some time after passing.) The exception occasionally seems to be roughly a two week window following their passing, free of their physical restrictions and able to reunite with loved ones in spirit, they may take off for a while. Also on occasion they are still “getting their bearings” and after a few days or so will be in a much better position to communicate.

Most of the time your animal will communicate readily, in detail with a reputable animal communicator. There are of course exceptions to the rule, and hopefully there is now a greater understanding of what to expect and what not to expect when consulting an animal communicator/pet psychic.

A few additional words of wisdom:

  • Obsessive compulsive behaviors are difficult to correct and while an animal communicator may help, there certainly is no guarantee. On the other hand if you need to check in with your animal and find out how they feel about your bringing another animal into the home or end of life questions and such, an good animal communicator is nearly guaranteed to bring forward meaningful answers.
  • In my experience the best animal communicators/pet psychics do not avoid missing and or lost animal cases and will readily take them on.
  • During the first part of the reading you should ask “control” questions. These are questions that are designed to confirm a connection to the animal that you wish to connect with. Early on it is best to ask questions of a simply yes or no nature in their reply. This is very important when doing a reading in person and the animal is either present, or a photograph and or description has already been provided. Remember, the best pet psychics do not require a photograph in order to secure a telepathic connection with your animal.
  • The more time that is spent with the animal, frequently the better the communication becomes and often times you will find that absolutely any questions are fair game, regardless of the type of response required.
  • Never consult with an animal communicator or pet psychic who does not offer refunds for a failure to connect and bear in mind that more expensive, does not always mean better.
  • Most importantly remember that a reputable animal communicator  is relay messages from your animals to you.
  • Your animal communicator most likely is not a trained behaviorist, doctor, trainer or vet. An animal communicator is simply a translator and advisor, by utilizing their gifts you can experience a stronger bond, connection and a deeper level of understanding and respect.
  • If for some reason your animal points you in the wrong direction or simply says something to get you off their back, remember that they most likely learned such behaviors from you. One unusual phenomena that occurs in a few older female dogs that have older women for their caretakers is that frequently the dogs will fudge on their age by a few years, kind of like you saying that you are still celebrating your 39th birthday, for the 5th time.

For the past two months I have been busy settling my family into our new home here in Amador county. We are in the middle of the Motherlode, gold is everywhere around us. After panning some mole hills on the property and finding a tiny bit of dust, I drove eight minutes down the road and panned some nice flakes out of a near by river.

The last seven years we lived in the San Francisco Bay Area. Benicia was our home and we had a lovely little condo with a gorgeous view of the water and the hills. After having our second daughter, the place became a little small for us and after headlining a fundraiser for Rehorse Rescue Ranch in Jamestown, we decided to move out to the foothills and to trade our urban digs for a more relaxed mountain lifestyle.

With our elevation being 3100 feet, we can expect a white Christmas just about every year. We found a place about 30 minutes up Hwy 88 from Jackson, on the way to South Tahoe. We have just over a half acre of terraced raised garden beds, a large rose garden and nearly fifty fruit trees. The persimmons are just finishing up, and the figs were incredible. Other fruit trees we have include; apple, pear, cherry, plum, peach, nectarine, white nectarine, and crabapple. Last but not least, we have eight grape vines.

We no longer have gangs in the area, unless you count the kind that run around on hooves. We have a family of about eleven deer that frequent our neighborhood and until recently used to make our yard their home. Mountain lions can be found in the area and there is a family of about nine turkeys that make our area home. A large covey of quail live here, about twenty-five of them and many other species of bird can be found in the region.

Essentially we have a little slice of paradise here up in the mountains and the quality of the home life is coming through in my readings. I am more relaxed, happier and eagerly look forward to each day. We have enough room here that in the future I will be hosting group readings, workshops and other events at our home.

The vast majority of my work is on the phone, and my clients are from all over the world. Recently I was asked if I am still making personal appearances in the Bay Area, the answer is yes, just not as often as in the past. I will continue to travel as before, where I was hosting Humane Society fundraisers and more, just expect me to travel a bit less during the winters.

Speaking of winter, this holiday season, consider giving a reading as a gift to a loved one. I will include a gift certificate via email that you can then send to the recipient via email or you can print it out and mail it. Gift certificates for a half hour reading or an hour reading are available. Simply email or call me (925-360-7469) in order to purchase one. They can be redeemed at anytime and do not expire. Gift the gift of insight and communication with your loved ones, both animal and human, living or past this holiday season.

Since moving here, our family has grown. We adopted a cat, Sophie, and a kitten, Annie Mittens, and a wonderful red heeler (cattle dog) named Peaches. We also have a rabbit, Benjamin Coco Wilson and a hamster named Tapioca.

Psychic Medium and Animal Communicator, Charles PedenAs this is my own blog, I have no problem with partaking in a bit of shameless self promotion. While putting together the above poster, it dawned on me that animal communication has really gone mainstream. It boggles my mind to think that just four short years ago I had never even heard of an animal communicator – pet psychic. Granted I had heard of psychics, I just was a skeptic.

Of course while as a young child I had experiences that were hard to explain. There was the time that I saw our deceased cat playing in the garden while at the kitchen sink washing dishes with my mother. I pointed out our cat playing up on the hillside and was promptly reminded that she had passed the year before. That was confusing … as was seeing the ghost of a fur trader creeping around our house. My brother and I saw him, he was dressed in buckskins with a Bowie knife in his right hand and a long rifle over his back. My understanding was that he had died after being ambushed by the local tribes who were unhappy with his intrusion onto their hunting grounds.

My memories from the early years were quickly suppressed as my childhood became nothing more than a memory. As a young adult I really do not recall any unusual experiences. On January, 24th 2006 I had a ghost appear in my home and that opened up the next chapter of my life. In many ways my unfolding was like going from zero to sixty in four seconds flat, quite the ride! Even then it was another seven months before I realized that I could communicate with live animals.

These days, I find myself counseling animals and their people on a near daily basis. One recent week began with me communicating with a dog in New Delhi, India (on the phone with his person) and later that day connecting with a rabbit in New Jersey, (on the phone as well.) Later that week I saw over twenty dogs in person.

On the 27th of June I was the featured Pet Psychic at “Mind Over Mutts” an event at Jack London Square in Oakland that is put on in partnership with the Eastbay SPCA. I had a great time chatting it up with the dogs and their people. A short 10-15 minute reading was $20 with all proceeds being donated to the Eastbay SPCA. The Port of Oakland, (Jack London Square) covered my stipend for the event and I was able to donate $260 to help out the animals in Alameda county.

Some of my favorite conversations involved a dog that ratted out his persons love of betting at the track. I was sitting with a woman and her dog, I asked the dog to provide me with something that would confirm a connection with him. And all of a sudden I was seeing images of the horse track. I asked if he had been taken to the races or to the track and the lady then called out to her husband who was a short distance away, but not seated with us. He got a somewhat worried look on his face, one wonders what other secrets he had. He then confirmed that he went to the track regularly, but had never taken the dog. The dog knew about it and let the wife know about how often he likes to go … too funny.

Another humorous incident was a woman who had brought her twelve year old son and dog to see me. After chatting a little bit with the dog, she asked me if the dog knew what her son did all day … instead of playing with the dog. I asked the dog and he told me the kid played video games. She asked if the dog could tell me what game the kid plays the most. I looked at the kid who was dressed in “skater” like clothes and then said to them both, “a fighting game, called “Call of Duty.” You should have seen their jaws drop, great stuff! I will bet you that kid will never be the same again – in a good way. While it is true that I also communicate with the spirits of the deceased on a daily basis as well, I have found that communication with animals helps to “break the ice” so to speak. When I go out in public, it is not uncommon for me to see the spirits of your loved ones beside you. It is however “unnerving” for someone such as myself to approach you in public and announce that your beloved husband is still with you in spirit. It is far easier for me to simply approach your dog and ask him a question that only he can answer.

Frequently animals will come up to me in public as they recognize my ability to communicate with them. The information that will come through will be very detailed. One of the first things that animals will tell me is their age, not from birth, but from conception. Frequently past animals will make an appearance. Often times animals wish to pass on a message to their person, such as thanking them for something that they did for their animal or simply letting them know how much they love them. Sometimes health concerns will be brought up and the animal may have some insights into how to care for their problems. It is of course important to note that I am not a vet and that I am simply able to relay to you additional insights and information. It is your obligation to consult with a trained animal care specialist regarding any information brought forward during a consultation.

Working with animals is very rewarding. As with any form of communication, it is a “two way street” and if an animal does not wish to communicate there is little I can do. I will from time to time employ the “burning ears” technique, in order to encourage an animal to communicate. This technique can be very effective when an impasse has been met. For example consider the case illustrated below.

While visiting Topanga I was on a trail ride where I bumped into one of the neighbors of the person whose ranch I was staying at. This person (we’ll call her Susan) had a beautiful horse who we will refer to as “Daisy.” Susan told me that Daisy had thrown her three times recently and that she really needed some help. I told her that after we had returned to the ranch from our ride and had dinner, that I would drive over and work with her and Daisy.

Later that evening I came over to work with Daisy and Susan. I noticed Susan’s jean jacket was on the ground in the middle of the corral. Daisy had taken it off of the fence and dropped it in the dirt. I asked Daisy for a show of good will, I asked her to retrieve Susan’s jacket. Daisy walked over to the jacket, put her nose down (within two inches) of it and then she jerked her head up, turned around and commenced to pee right near it.

The horse had made it clear that she was “pissed off” now what? I then turned to Susan and asked her to explain her side of the story. Usually I will have the animal communicate with me first, however in this case the horse was quite upset and was not talking. The whole reason I had come over was because Daisy had thrown her rider three times and if that was the case, it was very dangerous and had to be addressed right away.

With Daisy not talking I turned to Susan and listened as she began to describe how she had come to acquire Daisy. It turned out that Daisy was her first horse and that she had been auctioned off at a foreclosure auction. Daisy was pregnant when Susan had purchased her. The foal had recently been weaned and that had driven a bit of a wedge between Susan and Daisy. In addition to that, Susan was lacking confidence in what she was doing and that worried Daisy.

It only got worse when Susan told me how she had been thrown. It had been a very cold morning and been determined to go for a ride, Susan had put on a snowsuit over her regular riding clothes. She was as ungainly as the Michelin Man and she slipped off the stump that she was balancing on to get in the saddle. After nearly getting in the saddle she had slipped right off. Finally she made it into the saddle and Daisy simply sat her back legs down and raised her shoulders, shrugging off Susan in the process. Not much of a throwing.

Daisy had been insulted that Susan had gone around telling people that she had been thrown. It only got worse when similar events took place and now Susan was telling everyone how dangerous Daisy was and how she had been thrown three times. The truth of the matter was that Susan was in over her head, needed some professional instruction in riding and in care for a mare and her new foal. She simply lacked confidence and knowledge, which resulted in a nervous and unhappy horse. The horse had made a judgment call and simply decided that Susan was not fit to ride her. A little bit of communication with our animals can go a long ways towards bringing peace to the ranch and or home.

Back to the shameless self promotion.

Benicia/Vallejo Humane Society Fundraiser

Various groups such as charities, schools, sports teams, clubs, neighborhood groups, animal rescue and shelters have to hold fundraisers in order to bring in funds to cover operating expenses and so forth. There are several challenges that are presented in organizing a fundraiser. In economic times such as ours, many are more reluctant to part with their hard earned money … even if it is for a good cause. Even if people are “donating” they like to get something back in return. Many of the fundraising techniques that have been successful for years are no longer as effective as they once were. There seems to be at this time, more non-profits and other groups out there than at any other time and they all want people to donate to them too. Everyone is trying to spend less on their fundraisers while bringing in more money. What is needed is something that will get people talking, interested, excited and most importantly off the couch or office chair and into a participant at your next fundraiser.

Charles Peden Psychic Medium and Animal Communicator (Pet Psychic)

How do you hold the interest of a crowd of people? Bring forward a polarizing subject, telling a wild (yet true story) and then prove it to the crowd that the story you just told was true. How you ask? By bringing in a speaker who has the ability to speak with animals and the spirits of the departed. Place him in front of your group and over the course of the next several minutes he will entertain them with his story and then answer a few questions from the crowd before settling down and channeling the animals and spirits associated with those in the room. Very detailed information and descriptions as well as messages will be delivered. Those who were skeptical at the beginning may find their beliefs shaken as evidence is brought forth that the souls of our loved ones are still with us in spirit and that our animals can communicate with us telepathically.

As a psychic medium and animal communicator Charles Peden has headlined fundraisers for such organizations as The Humane Society and even a grand opening for Wag Hotels. Charles works as a great draw to bring people in the door for special events and fundraisers. Charles is capable of connecting with an animal via name only and with the animal being located anywhere in the world or even passed. Once he begins to connect … Charles will then begin to describe various features and details pertaining to your loved one. Details may include but are not limited to age, size, color, breed, food likes, manner of passing, unusual physical markings, favorite memories, names, locations, dates and more. Of course Charles can speak to the animals in person too, it simply is not required that a photograph or description be provided in order for him to connect. Charles can work one on one or with large groups, group readings may be done for as many as sixty people at a time over the course of two hours with the ideal size around twenty.

Presently a very well known medium is charging close to $350 a person for a group reading with fifty in attendance and with a duration of two hours. Imagine spending $700 as a couple and only five minutes of time will be allocatedRobeson County, NC Humane Society Fundraiser Banner to you two on average … if anything should come through for you, which there is no guarantee of. For far less Charles can provide a similar experience including the ability to connect with plants at the same level of detail as with spirits of our loved ones both human and animal as well as living animals.

Florida was proving to be a lot of fun and busy. The prior day, my first full day in Florida had begun early and ended late, so late in fact that when I got in the night before, my hosts had already turned in for the evening. After showering, eating a bowl of cereal and enjoying a cup of Peet’s coffee it was time to head out, but there was one more thing I had to do before I could head out for the day. I told my host about my wife and her sand story, my host informed me that just five minutes and I would be walking onto the beach. I had a few minutes before my first client of the day showed up and so I took a walk through the neighborhood and down to the beach, eight houses away.

It was a brilliant morning with the sun already warming the air and the sand. I took out my cell phone and made a video clip of the walk to the beach and then sent it to my wife who was asleep at home in California. I then took out a plastic zip-lock baggie and filled it with sand while filming the whole thing with my phone. I then sent the clip of me collecting the sand to my wife. Mission accomplished, now I could return to focusing on chatting with animals and those who had already passed on to the other side.

After returning to the home I was staying at, my first appointment of the day pulled up and we drove to where she is boarding her horse. After driving for about fifteen minutes, we pulled up to some polo fields and a very spacious horse boarding and riding facility. After we parked, we walked up to the stalls and she introduced me to her horse. Though he is not named Trigger, that’s what I will call him for this story. His person (we will call her Joan) had a few questions for Trigger. Her first question was regarding an individual by the name of “Cory” (once again not his real name.) Joan asked me if Trigger missed Cory. The first thing that I thought was that she was referring to another human, however Trigger immediately told me that he did not miss Cory, because Cory was with him nearly all the time. I then asked Trigger who Cory was, he told me that Cory was an eight year old horse who had passed and that he did not miss him because his spirit was with him. I relayed the information to Joan, she was shocked at how easily I had answered the question and with how detailed the response was. Pretty soon we had covered nearly all of her questions as well as taking in comments from Trigger.

With time left over before my next engagement, Joan asked one of the staff at the boarding facility, if they would like to use my services … the employee said yes and I connected with her horse who was in all places … NC, where I had just been. After channeling the staff members horse, another person who boards her horse at the facility was asked if she wanted me to communicate with her horse. She walked off shaking her head and made it clear that she thought that it was rubbish. However after watching the reactions of those who I was connecting with, she had a change of heart and asked me if I could chat with her horse too.

We walked around a bit and then walked up to meet her horse. He was a bit nippy and when I asked if he liked the facilities he nearly yelled at me that he was not happy. A bit taken aback, as every other horse had told me what a wonderful place it was, I dug deeper and asked him why he did not like it. He told me that he wanted his own barn and his own person. He told me that too many people handled him and that he wanted to be handled by only one person. I relayed the information back to the woman whose horse it was and she then confirmed his attitude. The horse was a former racehorse and he had at one time been blessed with his own personal trainer who would sleep near him and he was given a great deal of individual attention. Now he was being handled by the various staff at the facility and to make matters worse, his new person … handled other horses and not just him. We worked it out to where she would be the one to handle him and that she would limit or cut out the handling of the other horses at the boarding facility. After finishing up we drove though the polo fields (where Prince Charles used to play polo) and headed over to the Humane Society.

We arrived at the Vero Beach/Indian River County Humane Society about an hour early and my contact met me with a request to do a walkthrough of their facility so that I may have an opportunity to try and work with some of their more difficult to read animals. After spending about forty minutes with various animals at the shelter and recording my observations and communications to the staff that had been assigned to accompany me, I returned to the classroom where I was going to be giving my talk and demonstration of animal communication through telepathy. To me pet psychic is a very limiting term, when you consider that I can communicate with all species both wild and domestic, the term animal communicator makes far more sense.

Before I went on, the Humane Societies director of continuing education showed the audience (of roughly 60+) a short PSA spot that was set to air on local television stations in the upcoming weeks. The PSA was aimed at delivering the message that your animals will still retain their personalities after being spayed or neutered. The spot featured a cat dressed up like a carnival psychic complete with turban and crystal ball. The cat is telling other animals that he can see into the future, after they have been “fixed” and she still sees them being the same. It was pretty cute, funny and well timed. After the television spot had been shown, I was introduced and then it got real interesting.

I wanted to keep everything focused on our animals and how I became aware of my ability to communicate with living and deceased animals. Near the end of my “lecture” I planned to coach people on how they too can communicate like I do with animals and then I wanted to finish off my two hour appearance by channeling animals connected to those in the audience for the last hour. At one point during the Q&A portion of my talk I was asked a question I was hoping to avoid, make that two questions. A person in the audience asked if I could also communicate with the souls of departed humans, I looked to my contact at the Humane Society and thought I saw a gentle nod, as if to go ahead and answer the question. I then replied that “Yes” I can and that was how it really all began for me. Immediately a few additional hands went up, one of them publicly proclaimed that he too had connected with the spirits of loved ones who had passed and that until now he was too shy to say anything about it. A few others in the room echoed his sentiments and I felt that for some there it was a very powerful and cathartic moment. Then the second question … now I have been able to somehow avoid this question for about three years and oddly enough I was hit with it twice in the same day while in Florida.

The question was “Why does my dog eat cat poop?” I should point out that I can hear, feel, see, smell and taste information on a psychic level. I once had an owl describe the odor and flavor of frozen and then thawed in the microwave mouse followed by the flavor, smell and texture of a live mouse in comparison. I must say that after that experience, should the occasion ever arise where I have to choose between the frozen and thawed mouse versus the live mouse for dinner, it is very clear that the live mouse is better on every front. Frozen and microwaved mouse is to put it bluntly … an abomination, absolutely the worst thing I had every had the displeasure of tasting … until now. Let’s just say that I received a mixed reply to this question, some dogs seemed to indicate it was a territorial thing. If you eat the markings that one uses to mark their territory, it than becomes yours when you replace the cat’s poop with yours … it’s almost the ultimate insult to have your marking wrapped in the poop of another (often larger) animal. It’s like you just got punked. In addition some dogs indicated that it was a source of additional nutrients and that as natural scavengers who pretty much are willing to eat anything, they simply feel that there may still be a bit of nutrition left in whatever is left in the droppings in front of them.

After finishing the question and answer portion of my appearance, we took a short break and then we got started on the good stuff. I absolutely love what I do and working with a room full of people eager to connect with their animals was a treat. As I began I figured that instead of simply opening up to the animals who wanted to come through first, that I would call on the people one by one to let me know the name of the animal that they wished to connect with. I started with the woman on my left in the front row. She immediately unfolded a picture of her black cat, I then reminded everyone that I did not require a photograph and to please refrain from showing pictures to me … at least until after I had made the connection and described their animal back to them based upon a name alone. After connecting with the woman’s black cat I continued on down the front row of people, this time they did not volunteer photos and or descriptions of their animals as I made the connections and described their animals to them you could hear the occasional gasp from the audience.

After going through the entire first row I realized that as compelling as the technique that I was employing was, there was one major drawback. There were simply too many people present for me to be able to work with each person before I ran out of time, so I turned to the audience and asked if at that point everyone believed that I could talk to animals. I was pleased to hear a rousing “Yes!” from the audience and then I rolled out my new plan. Having to describe the animal back to the person, to prove my connection was eating up time so I simply asked the animal that they wanted me to connect with, the question that they had for them and went from there. This process was much quicker and I would spend less than thirty seconds going from one connection to the next. If it took me longer to connect I would simply pass on that person and move on to the next in line. I only had to skip about two individuals and everyone else was able to make a connection accept for a handful at the back of the room when I ran out of time.

One of the staff had offered to give me a ride to my next venue, the Inspired Heart where I had done a group reading and a handful of private readings the night before and now I was scheduled to return for a series of private individual readings. As I was walking out of the classroom at the Humane Society, I was “mobbed” by people who wanted me to connect with another animal for them or who simply wanted me to chat with them and answer additional questions etc., frankly I was tired from channeling and speaking and with going back on in an hour I needed some downtime. I ducked into a side office and asked the staff if I could “hideout” in their office for a minute. After everyone had left the room I finally exited, found my ride and we headed over to the Inspired Heart.

With twenty minutes before I was on again, I popped into a nearby deli, picked up a veggie-wrap and a bottle of water as well as a bottle of grapefruit juice, I was after all in Florida. I returned to the room where I had worked the night before and after taking off my shoes I sat down in front of the 1,700 pound crystal point to eat a quick bite before my first reading of the evening. A couple from the previous evening entered at one point and as they sat down I turned to the gentleman and asked him how he had slept the night before. I have never opened with that question before, it turns out that he was here for help with his lack of sleep. During the night he would toss and turn and have the worst pain in his head and neck. After “looking” at his body with my abilities I could see that he had two damaged vertebrae I could also see everything that he had done up until this point to try and alleviate the pain and discomfort. After pointing him in the direction of some options to assist him in returning to a pain free existence, we moved on to other areas of their lives and was able to provide much closure and understanding.

In one of the readings I had the ex-husband of the woman who was sitting with her current husband come through. The former husband had been passed for some time and was coming through to let the gentleman who was now with his wife know that not only did he approve, but that he genuinely liked the guy. He relayed to him how much it meant to him that he was able to bring happiness to his former wife. After several additional readings I was finally done with my work in Vero Beach.

My contact in Vero Beach and I then headed out to dinner at one of several fine eating establishments and enjoyed a wonderful Italian dinner. The following morning I had to take a shuttle service to Orlando and catch a flight to Chicago. After watching seven-hundred and fifty flights get canceled at Chicago I was a bit concerned about my flight the following morning. I packed that evening after checking in with my guides, they told me I would be in Chicago on schedule and so I figured that I would plan on going in the morning even if it looked sketchy. The next morning I was packed and ready to roll by eight forty-five and after checking the flights online, discovered that my flight was on time. The ride to the airport was fun as I had the opportunity to share my story with the driver and so the time flew. I positioned my heavy jacket, gloves and the like at the ready and boarded the plane for Chicago. Before leaving Florida though … I stopped at one of the gift shops in the airport and purchased shirts for the girls back home.

Several months back I was invited to headline a fundraiser for the Robeson County Humane Society in Lumberton, North Carolina. I agreed to donate my time and services for a worthy cause if they would be so kind as to put me up while in town and cover my airfare. They agreed to the arrangement and I went about putting a poster together for the event and then I sent out a few emails.

As I was going to be traveling all the way to the East Coast I figured I could stop by some other locations not too far from where I was going to be and if it worked out that some events were to be arranged, I just might add them to the trip itinerary.

Two individuals, both connected to sea glass and to the same suburb of Chicago stepped forward and informed me that they had some ideas of what they could arrange for me if I was to add them as a stop on my trip. The first was Vero Beach, Florida and the second was Wilmette, Illinois, right near Chicago.

For this note I will concentrate on the North Carolina portion of the trip with the other two states to follow in subsequent posts.

Robeson County Humane Society Fundraiser Banner. An evening with psychic medium & animal communicator, Charles Peden.

My contact from the Robeson County Humane Society met me at the airport in Raleigh and while we drove to the town of Lumberton which was about an hour and forty-five minutes away … I channeled one of her ancestors. That evening I was treated to Chinese takeout and fine red wine from Napa Valley. A few others from the Humane Society had come over for dinner and I enjoyed answering their questions about what I do and how I got started. I seem to recall channeling an animal or two, but nothing significant took place as far as I can recall.

It is only fair to note here that while the Southern hospitality was warm and welcome, the weather was downright cold and blustery with snow on the ground. The following morning after I arrived, we headed over to the shelter and I chatted with a dog that was being adopted out to his forever home.

The dog was wonderful and seemed to be very excited about going to his new home. I asked the dog if the new home was to his liking and I connected with the other two dogs that already lived at this home. The existing dogs told me that they were looking forward to their new playmate joining them. Sure enough later that day the gentleman who had adopted the dog sent a video from his home of all three dogs playing together and having a ball with each other.

While at the shelter I also did a walk through and asked the dogs various questions about their likes, dislikes and health. I forwarded my notes to the personnel present so that they may have additional insights provided regarding the various animals in their care at the time.

I must say that if you are able to donate and would like to help out a shelter that is in dire need of funding, look no further than the Robeson County Humane Society in Lumberton, NC … they do wonderful work and really could use a new roof among other things. While there in the shelter, I found myself dodging raindrops and buckets in the halls and offices of the shelter, their roof is full of holes and they need some dog beds badly to keep the canines off of the cold cement.

That evening was the fundraiser at Pembrook College. We returned to my hosts home and after a quick snack we got dressed and left for the college. The rain was coming down in sheets and it was quite windy. There were two other events taking place that evening … we did not expect a large turnout and were pleasantly surprised to see a few more people filter into the room than I had feared would show up.

The evening started with dinner, chicken breast on a bed of rice with cooked carrots and rolls. A small salad and some kind of cake/brownie like desert item. There was plenty of sweet tea and I requested water and that my plate would be served vegetarian, with the chicken breast omitted. Dinner was enjoyable and I took a photograph of my plate with the cooked carrots on it and sent the picture to my wife Heidi. You see, she dislikes cooked carrots very much and I was trying to let her know that she was not forgotten. lol

After eating a quick slideshow was shown about the shelter and the work they do and then the President of the Robeson County chapter of the Humane Society gave me a wonderful introduction. Once he had introduced me, I took the stage and after playing with the mic for a bit realized that I could easily work without it, provided that I projected my voice well enough.

I spoke for about thirty minutes regarding how I had come to work with my unique abilities and shared a few stories and insights from animals in general. For the next half hour I fielded questions from the audience and then I sat down for the last hour to channel animals as they came to me.

The first animal that I “saw” coming in was a large reptile, an iguana. I described him to the audience and to my surprise no one stepped forward to claim him. I then channeled a dog or something similar who had not been able to say goodbye properly prior to passing and their person finally got the closure that they were looking for. The iguana showed up again and this time I described him as being somewhat large and angry. Once again no one claimed him and I had to dismiss the iguana a second time. This time I saw a cat coming through, all white and with a growth on the left side of the neck and a reference to being the runt of the litter. It turned out to be two cats, from the same litter who were both white and one had a growth that had come and gone while the other one was the runt of the litter. The one who had the health issue was there to reassure their human that they were in good health and not to worry about them. Then … the iguana returned, I joked about how I was going to Florida next and perhaps it was an alligator who I was going to connect with there, but once again I felt compelled to describe him as an angry iguana. At this point a young boy of about ten, in the back of the room raised his hand and said that his father had an iguana.

Finally … I asked the boy if he had a question for the iguana and he said yes, “Why did he try to break my dad’s leg with his tail?” the iguana told me that the boy’s father had made some cruel jokes about the iguana and that he was not very nice to it … the boy confirmed it, to which I reminded the audience that it is never a good idea to tease the iguanas or any other animal for that matter. Even if it’s just verbal, they still hear it and it affects them.

When I was done channeling about an hour later, I doubt very much that there were many if any skeptics left in the building. It was a lot of fun and it was well received.

After the event was over we retired for the evening and returned the following day to the shelter to provide readings to the general public. Several readings later I was done with my work in North Carolina and we went out to Fayetteville to the Mash House for dinner and a beer before catching a movie. We saw Mel Gibson’s “The Edge of Darkness” which we all enjoyed and then turned in for the evening. The following morning I found myself on the way to the airport in Raleigh for the flight to Charlotte where I had a connecting flight to Orlando, Florida.

Speaking of flights, I found that if you channel the animals connected to those who are sitting near you on the plane, that the flight will go by very quickly for all involved. Next I will fill you in on my adventures in Florida.

Last night I attended the Benicia/Vallejo Humane Society’s Voters Preview Party as an animal communicator. The event was part of (now a 6 year tradition) of holding a competition to build animal habitats such as dog houses, cat houses etc. and then auctioning them off with the proceeds going to support the animals. This the second year that Peter Wilson the director of humane services has had me as a special guest. I provided animal readings throughout the evening for attendees.

Thursday evening Heidi (my wife) was reading a bedtime story to our two girls. Before starting to read to them she nearly pulled out an old Golden Book “Lassie”. She didn’t read it, but it kind of “jumped” out at her. The next day prior to getting dressed for the event that evening, I pulled up the Benicia/Vallejo Humane Society’s web site and noticed that they had another special guest coming to the event this year, it was none other then Jon Provost who played Timmy on the TV show “Lassie”.

Heidi had enjoyed watching the show when she was a kid and I had not had much access to TV while growing up, but still that it would be cool to meet him. As it turned out, his wife Laurie Jacobson and I had much to discuss as she is an author who has written a book on haunted Hollywood! She and I shared ghost stories while Heidi and Jon connected over the show and she had him sign her Golden Book. It was a real pleasure connecting with them.

As the attendees started to arrive I returned to the location that had been set aside for me to do readings and Heidi assisted by answering peoples questions, managing the line and reminding me when people’s time was up. It was very busy and looking back on it, it surprises even me, that I am able to provide readings in such a noisy and busy atmosphere. Time flew by, it felt like as soon as I sat down that it was time to go.

This next week Heidi and I will be at the Gala Auction and Dinner Fundraiser. For more info and tickets, visit the link below.
