Our animal companions, (pets) truly do become family members and when their time here in the physical form has come to an end and they have passed and joined your ancestors in death, the pain can be unbearable. The passing of a loved one often prompts one to explore what is beyond the veil of death and to seek answers from those who seem to know something about such matters and many turn to psychics and mediums for answers.

There is nothing wrong with seeking answers about the bigger questions in life, the problem is that many times you get different and conflicting information from multiple sources, when each source is posed with the same question. When seeking out answers remember that if someone can tell you what your pet is thinking in detail, that they had better be able to describe that animal and very specific details about them to verify their connection. If you are asked to provide a wealth of detail about your loved one in order to establish a connection, ask additional questions once a “connection” has been “established” in order to verify the strength of the connection. For example, I might ask questions such as favorite place to sleep, type of diet, what time of year they came into the family, and other very specific questions.

As a psychic medium and animal communicator who has provided thousands of connections over the past nine years, I would say that it is safe to say that I have a little bit of knowledge with regards to the big reincarnation question.

Every week I am asked about reincarnation and if and when a beloved animal companion will be returning to you during this lifetime in another body of the same species, or in some cases another species altogether, such as a dog coming back as a cat or a human.

Here is my response: No. Your animal will not be returning to you in another physical form during this present lifetime of yours, and here is why I know this.

  1. Every animal that I have reached out to who has passed has come through, very rarely it has taken more than one attempt to make contact, but in the vast majority of the cases I establish contact fairly quickly.
  2. Regardless of what time period your past animals are from, they are able to come through with ease.
  3. Your animals who have passed inform me that they will interact with new and or existing animals in your home, this can sometimes lead someone to believe that their past animal has returned as a new animal is exhibiting behaviours that similar or the same as your past animal. It is simply your past animal coaching your new animal, for fun and to demonstrate that they are still present in the home.
  4. I am yet to connect with a single animal that has revealed that they had come back from a previous pets body.
  5. I have never had a past animal tell me that they are coming back in another body.
  6. If they reincarnated as some would have us believe, our animals would suffer form the same thing that we do, no solid memories of our past lives and relationships, thus making reincarnation a pointless exercise.
  7. Our loved ones continue to watch over us in spirit and in reading after reading I have brought forth solid confirmations of our past animals and human companions watch our current day to day activities.
  8. In one reading a client had been informed by another “psychic” that her cat was going to come back to her at a local shelter and the charlatan went so far as to describe the physical appearance that the new body would look like. This was after she asked me where her cat was at the time of the reading, I saw the cat on a dresser in a box. It turns out the cats ashes were where I was describing.
  9. In my experience those who claim to know when and where your animal is going to reincarnate and come back to you are simply fleecing the grieving.
  10. It’s all about burden of proof. With only a name and species, I, or any other good psychic medium will describe in detail your animals physical appearance, breed, age, manner of passing, diet, favorite activities, how acquired, favorite person, favorite treats, personality, living arrangements, and much, much more.

Bottom line is I believe that our loved ones wait for us in spirit and that once we join them in spirit we can have full closure and bring everything full circle. After reuniting in spirit, I believe that our journey may continue together, provided that is what the two of you agree to.

No photos should be required to make a telepathic connection with a loved one in spirit or with a living animal.

Have you ever wondered about what happens during a typical missing animal consultation with myself, a psychic medium and animal communicator (pet psychic) on the case?

Each week numerous cases involving missing animals are brought to me. Each one is unique, no two are exactly alike, but the process for working each case is similar.

First of all it is critical that I work with as little information up front as possible. Working with a blank slate initially is very important as first impressions often are important and can be colored by the volunteering of too much information by the client.

I only request the name and species of the missing party prior to beginning to reach out to them telepathically.

If your animal is outgoing, friendly, and responsive to you then this part is usually fairly easy depending on the circumstances surrounding their disappearance. If they are friendly towards strangers then this part can be very simple.

After putting out a verbal request for contact with the missing party, I will then wait for a connection to be established before asking where the missing party is and what has happened to them.

Frequently I will simply “see” your animal or I may “hear” what breed they are. Sometimes the details are crystal clear at the beginning of the connection,  other times it can be shaky to begin and then improving as the investigation moves forward.

I will then describe various details as they come in, looking for only a “yes” or “no” response from my client to confirm the details. On occasion other animals living or past will try and butt in to the attempt to connect with the missing party.

After a connection is confirmed by describing various details about the missing party such as physical appearance, age, personality, manner in which they went missing and more, it is then time to ask where they are and what happened to them.

Frequently I will describe the physical location the animal went missing from, before using a map to refine the search.

As I bring forward details concerning the missing pet I will often times stop and ask additional confirming questions such as type of food eaten at home relationships in the home sleeping arrangements,  past injuries and much more.

If your animal is unable to respond,  such as recently passed or choosing to leave of their own free will, there are other ways to obtain the information we are seeking. I may request the name of a past loved one who is human and in spirit.

Again the process of connecting is similar with details concerning physical appearance, age, manner of passing, career interests and more being used to confirm the connection.

After contact is firmly established, questions about what can be seen, smelled, heard, and felt will be asked to determine location of missing party. In addition questions about direction traveled or traveling, health and more can be asked.

On occasion a solid connection will be established only to find the animal clams up when asked specific questions about what happened and where they are or if they are living or passed.

It can sometimes be difficult to tell your loved ones that you did something they told you not to and now you have gotten yourself into big trouble.

In some cases an animal can be talked into coming in or meeting at a neutral location closer to where they are presently.

Sometimes you will be led to their physical remains or evidence that suggests that they are in spirit.

In a limited number of cases the animal has rehomed themselves and does not wish to return or they have been stolen and sold or used in dog fighting etc., some cases will be solved and others may lack any serious closure.

Hopefully you never have an animal come up missing or lost, but if you do, I am here to help.

Group Reading with Psychic Medium & Animal Communicator Charles Peden at Spirits Child in Tucson, Arizona - February 15, 2015

Group Reading with Psychic Medium & Animal Communicator Charles Peden at Spirits Child in Tucson, Arizona – February 15, 2015

Last year in 2014 my wife Heidi and I visited Tucson, Arizona for the first time, for her it was her first time in Arizona, I myself lived in Phoenix once many years ago for just over a year. We had so much fun and enjoyed the energy of Tucson so much that we almost returned home to pack up and move to the southwest. After a consultation with our children we realized it best to allow them to finish school here in the Sierra foothills in northern California’s Gold Country. As the plans to move were canceled or at least postponed, the decision was made to travel at least once a year to Arizona.

This time we are bringing the whole family to enjoy the desert and are excited about once again visiting the Grand Canyon state. For this trip there are a number of events lined up beginning with a private group reading in Saddlebrook on the 11th followed by private readings on the 12th. On the 13th I will be doing a private workshop where I teach how to develop your own abilities to communicate with animals and loved ones in spirit through telepathy. The 14th I plan on taking off for time spent with family enjoying Tucson and area attractions. For the 15th, come out to Spirits Child and join me for a group reading from 5 to 7 pm. Private appointments are available during the day of the 15th. We will be leaving early on the morning of the 16th.

Please visit http://www.charlespeden.com to secure your tickets for the group reading on the 15th at Spirits Child in Tucson.

If seeking a private in person one-on-one reading, please send in an email from the website requesting one.

Should you be interested in hosting a private group reading, a fundraiser for an animal rescue or similar event, please send in an email detailing a bit about what it is you wish to do or call 925-360-7853.

In February I will be returning to Tucson, Arizona to host a number of events and to provide in person private readings. One of the activities is a workshop designed to teach you the basics of telepathy so that you may learn to communicate with your own animals and loved ones in spirit. This blog post is for those who are attending this workshop as well as anyone else looking to develop their own intuitive and telepathic abilities so that you too can talk with the animals and the spirits of our ancestors, guides and loved ones.

With a background in computer science I have a different approach than many when it comes to the subject of telepathy and communication with spirit. I see great parallels with regard to what I have been doing on a near daily basis for the past nine years and the way that our smart phones work.

Computers and the universe communicate in binary code – a series of ones and zeros or energy pulses and flat lines.

When you burn a finger on a hot plate it takes a moment before the pain registers, why? because there is a series of hard wired pathways called nerves that travel through your finger into your hand and up your arm and finally into your brain.

Your brain processes a series of electrical impulses that traveled through your body from the original site of the injury and then you “feel” it. It’s similar to curb sensors designed to aid you in parking your vehicle – should you be equipped with such. This brings me to another point.

Our bodies are essentially vehicles for the spirit. The spirit survives both inside and outside the body and can function much the same as a human outside of their vehicle, so even if your vehicle breaks down you can still get out and walk, or in the case of spirit fly.

The brain is a sophisticated on board computer and interface for the driver of the vehicle and the brain processes/displays information in a way that is similar to our smart phones, tablets and other computing devices which employ a single screen as part of their user interface.

When you “picture” something in your mind, you are essentially employing your brains visual processing center, when you receive information from an outside source, such as downloading a video on Youtube, you are still viewing that information in the same location as the drawing app that you were just utilizing in your mind while picturing something else – perhaps related or, often times not.

Regardless of the source of the information you are processing it is all displayed in the same location, the important thing is determining the source of the information and it’s context in relation to you and your life.

For example:

Imagine that you are out for a run and while running around the local park you have a song pop into your head. It may be one that you have not heard in some time, yet is one that you associate with a loved one in spirit. You may find your thoughts drifting to the person you associate the song with and you may suddenly experience an intense upwelling of emotion, perhaps a strong or mild current of “energy” coursing though your body, like an adrenaline burst or a static electrical discharge. This may happen with other experiences too, such as smells, sounds, quick visions, physical sensations, raw emotions and even food cravings, a desire to watch a particular movie or listen to a particular piece of music. All of these types of experiences may be associated with a loved one in spirit or a present animal reaching out to you.

When one of the previously mentioned types of events takes place, stop and ask yourself a simple question – “Did I generate this piece of information?” wait for a moment and then ask “Is this a message coming to me from another individual?”

After asking each question, wait for a few seconds and see if you feel a pulse of energy associated with one of the queries versus the other.

When you do not feel anything, that is a “no” response.

A gentle or strong energy pulse indicates a “yes” response.

Please note that like the old game “hot and cold” it is possible to receive a mild yes when close to the right information, yet not quite accurate. When you get the correct information often times you will receive a fairly strong pulse of energy to indicate that you nailed it.

This approach to communication works equally well for animals who are living, animals in spirit and our human loved ones and ancestors in spirit.

Living animals need not be present to be communicated with and just like your smart phone, communication can take many forms.

It is my firm belief that a photograph and or description of the animals and or individuals being communicated with is not needed and instead is a crutch and at worst allows many to commit fraud, claiming abilities that they may or may not utilize or even understand.

Before going further, a few things to bear in mind.

Telepathy works regardless of species and native language, in other words if grandmother only speaks in Danish that should not be an issue in the least with regard to telepathic communication.

Using the “yes/no” – “energy pulse versus flat line” approach to basic telepathic communication is fairly easily, and you can quickly determine who you are engaged with and perhaps much more.

I liken the early stages of telepathic communication to be similar to two individuals who are on different wavelengths, one on the high end and one on the low end and they are trying to create a connection somewhere in the middle. At first it’s similar to using “rabbit ears” on an old TV, or for you younger readers, like only being able to text another individual and not Skype them, then as you continue to connect with each other the connection is firmed up and suddenly you have a strong connection complete with visuals and perhaps more.

When I am reaching out to connect with someone, (similar to calling someone from your smart phone) I am initially looking to receive a nuanced feedback loop if you will, similar to a person answering their phone with “yes” or similar. If you are not feeling any kind of energy pulse coming back upon saying the individuals name and asking them to connect, then they are not yet connecting. Sometimes an individual is not available when we would like them to be, just like our friends and loved ones here.

Sometimes a different party than the one you are looking to connect with will connect with you or you may simply wish to discover who that spirit is who you feel standing beside you while preparing dinner. Use the following suggested series of questions to aid in identifying who is connecting with you and why, or to simply verify that you have who you think you have communicating with you.

  1. Are you male? Are you female? So you are ____. (If no yes response (energy pulse) to your statement, then go back to your questions.)
  2. Are you human? Are you something other than human? So you are _____.
  3. Are you family? (If human) Are you someone other than family? So you are ______.

You get the idea, so basically you are double checking each response you receive and reconfirming the response you got through turning it into a statement. As the questions vary dramatically the further you proceed, it works best to just get a feel for the technique and then to apply it, rather then to type out a rigid standard series of questions.

During the workshop you will be expected to attempt to “read” another participants animals and or loved ones. This exercise always is full of surprises as individuals discover their hidden abilities to communicate telepathically. It’s like driving a car from this day and age and thinking that you are driving an older vehicle that lacks all of the technological advancements in recent years such as “OnStar” curb sensors, rear view cameras and more, and to make matters worse, you don’t even know that such technology exists, or if you do – it may not be clear that you have it in your vehicle and or how to use it. Well, I am hear to tell you that we all have this technology built into our bodies, we just need to learn how to use it.

A few things to ponder.

Those in spirit are no more removed from than x-rays, gamma rays and other invisible “to the naked eye” forms of energy.

Animals who are living can “read you like an open book” and can communicate with you anywhere in the world telepathically.

Animals can see and communicate with those in spirit.

Humans and animals are not much different any more than a Ferrari is different from a Land Rover, both are vehicles whose drivers at the end of the day have far more in common than their vehicles. Of course the drivers of each vehicle will look at the environment through the prism of the vehicle they have chosen, which will to some extent color the way they see the world and how they interact with others.

Those in spirit can see and hear everything we are involved in – they do not need to be “physically” present in spirit in order to be aware of your activities. When you establish a friendship on Facebook, you then become aware of the feed of information that they are posting, now imagine that you can view everything they are experiencing and not just what they choose to post, those in spirit see everything.

Meditating can certainly help with regard to developing your abilities. Many have been taught to meditate by going through their mind and identifying and discarding any information in there, that’s like throwing the baby out with the bathwater. You have just cleared out your inbox without finding out why that material was in there. This is a good way to clear your mind for a nap. A better way to clear your mind is to go through the information you have in your mind and ask yourself a simple question, did I generate this, or is this a message from someone else. Often times you will find messages that are waiting to be “read” so to speak.

As with going online, and or using a smart phone, there are hazards that exist when reaching out to those in spirit. If it feels “off”, stop right away and request additional protection.

Protection is important and with a few simple guidelines you should find your experiences with spirit communication to be rather enjoyable as opposed to frightening and or stressful.

  1. When you focus on someone or an event, you run the risk of bringing elements associated with those individuals or events into your home/life.
  2. Do not watch news reports about heinous crimes, or disasters and then act surprised when you start to become overwhelmed by grief or other scary emotions or even stalked by spirits of the departed.
  3. Avoid negative material in your life such as horror movies, true crime books or movies, and other entertainment that serves no purpose other than to revel in misery and fear.
  4. Do read and or watch inspiring material regarding individuals who are of great spirit and vision.
  5. Do ask for your loved ones, and ancestors to protect you.
  6. In my experience there is no true evil, simply just very twisted and hurt individuals acting out in horrific ways.
  7. Light always extinguishes darkness.

Another simple exercise you can utilize to aid in developing your abilities is while driving try and “read” the drivers around you and the actions they will take, such as when they will turn, change lanes, etc., another driving game involves “reading” the oncoming traffic and describing the color of the next vehicle to pass you or the type of vehicle.

You can call upon individuals you do not personally know and ask for them to reveal specific details about themselves that you can then research to verify a connection. Once I had a connection with a famous individual whom I was surprised to be in contact with. Having a personal “pinch me moment” with the spirit of this famous person I determined a way to verify that it was indeed them connecting with me. I asked for a detail I did not know about them, yet one I could easily research to verify. I was shown a specific injury which I was unaware of being associated with the spirit whom I was in contact with. Sure enough upon doing some research later that day I determined that the information was correct in regards to being tied to the spirit of the individual whom I had been previously in contact with.

Dreams make a good learning environment in which to learn more about these abilities. I suggest the following exercise.

Take a notepad and write down the names of those you wish to contact. Ask for them to help teach you how to communicate more effectively on a telepathic level. Write at the bottom of the note that you will remember your dream upon awakening. Fold the note up and place it under your pillow as you fall asleep, this should aid in generating a quality dream that you can recall the following day.

When coming to the workshop you will want to bring the following materials: Pens and pencils, a notepad, a pillow, photos of loved ones (Do not share with anyone until instructed to do so.) a water bottle and any small items associated with past loved ones such as watches, tags, jewelry etc., while not required for contact, they can help.

You are encouraged to read as much as you can from my blog and website to understand how I work, what to expect and to gain additional insight into how you too can communicate with the spirits of your loved ones human and animal as well as connecting with our living animals.

Please leave your animals at home.

When I first started writing about my experiences as a psychic medium and animal communicator I found myself blogging a lot and worked hard to get the word out about my services and to share with others the amazing discovery’s and realizations that have brought me so much comfort and peace. Now that my name is becoming fairly well known in some circles, I find myself very busy with readings, my family, gardens, orchard and my new hobby of taking part in local community theatre.

At first I used to blog nearly daily, then I started sharing more on Facebook – where I find myself posting far more often then here. My Facebook account is tied to Twitter and so a Facebook post goes out on Twitter as well. I may begin blogging more in the future, but it is not too likely. Some of the stories I am keeping in reserve for book material and much of the back story about how I do what I do and how I got to where I am is already blogged about here.

For many years I have worked to support my family, at one time I held three jobs – working for a coffee company, a photocopier company, and a party equipment rental and management company. This was in Seattle soon after the birth of my first daughter. Later on after moving to California I found myself working 80+ hour work weeks for another entertainment company, handling team building events and summer picnics for large corporations and again found myself without a “life” outside of work.

Then around 2004 I discovered “sea glass” on a beach in San Francisco Bay and began my own business selling sea glass, sea glass jewelry and jewelry making supplies – I called my company “By the Bay Treasures.” In 2006 I was one of the principal founders of “The North American Sea Glass Association” and hosted their first annual sea glass festival. We had an amazing turnout and that year I was filmed by the Travel Channel, was in Coastal Living magazine and did newspaper and radio interviews regarding the sea glass business and association.

In 2006 I also had my first real encounter with the paranormal as an adult and was shocked to discover that what I had considered as an overactive childhood imagination was actually my having had paranormal experiences while as a kid. After discovering my new path in life I stepped down from the presidency of the sea glass association, launched my web site http://www.charlespeden.com and sold http://www.bythebaytreasures.com.

My first few years working exclusively as a psychic medium and animal communicator were focused on building a clientele, getting my name out there and moving my family away from the crime and congestion of the big city and into the peace and beauty of the country.

Now I am finally at a place in my life where I can enjoy living and not just struggle each day to make it. My work as a psychic medium and animal communicator keeps me very busy. My wife who from time to time had to work outside the home has been fortunate enough to stay at home raising and teaching our two daughters, caring for the home and now she is also my booking assistant and manages all of my scheduling.

She and I have reached a place in our lives where we are finally able to enjoy life and not always worry about the next bill or gang violence etc., yes we have worked hard to get here, and while we are doing well – we could always be doing better but are very thankful for what we do have.

Last year I rekindled an old interest from many years ago and found myself reading at auditions for a play that my eldest daughter was auditioning for with the Volcano Theatre Company. My wife has been active in children’s theatre for many years and while never having time to get involved I would on occasion watch from the sidelines and would try and attend all the performances to support my daughter.

Well I ended up getting cast in Christmas Yet to Come, a twist on A Christmas Carol and as I had so much fun in it (acting with my entire family – we all ended up in the production) that when auditions for 12 Angry Men were held, I found myself reading for a part and with some stiff competition was cast as juror number two. After an amazing run, I auditioned for The Wizard of Oz and was not cast, however both my daughters landed roles in it. I then auditioned for House of Frankenstein and was cast as Dracula while my eldest daughter was given her biggest part to date – my wife is assistant director and we expect to have a blast with this production.

All of our theatre work is on a volunteer basis and it gives us a great community to connect with. The work I do daily is very demanding and can be quite stressful, often times I find myself working with people who have just lost a loved one, are facing the passing of a loved one or they have some other pressing issue, some readings are far more relaxed, but the majority are dealing with individuals who are going through some kind of crisis. Being involved in local theatre gives myself an opportunity to play with family, join in with a fun community, and an opportunity to focus on something that requires all of my attention and provides little room for thinking about work. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE what I do, it’s just nice to be able to step away from the pressures of the office/home and play with other like minded individuals.

At first I was a bit hesitant to talk too much about my work as an actor, I have had concerns that some would think that my work as a psychic medium and animal communicator was or is an act – though I do find it difficult to see how telling you the age, appearance and manner of passing of a beloved animal companion that you ask me to connect with, along with many other personal details. with nothing more than a name to go on could be an act.

I am very busy with doing readings for clients all over the world from my home office via the internet and the phone. I used to attend psychic fairs, work in person in the town I was in from a fixed storefront and travel to events that I had put together or was invited to, a lot of that was in order to get the word out, now I know longer need to put myself out there so much and instead the work comes to me – via word of mouth, stumbling across my website or having connected with me in person in the past.

While traveling can be fun, it also has it’s dangers and can be expensive and time consuming, being able to work from the comfort and safety of my own home office has many advantages. I still do the occasional in person appearance at events and so forth,such as providing my services in Livermore, CA at Wente Vineyards for their Dog Day Afternoon event this past June 1st of 2013, and I have events that will be announced in the near future that will take place later this year in the fall.

So … while I am blogging a lot less and on Facebook less, I am busier than ever before with work, family and volunteering in local theatre.

May all of you find your lives as rewarding and enriching as the one that my family and I lead.

People often ask me, “How is it possible to do what you do without being there in person?” and the answer is really quite simple.

Think of me as a smart phone, laptop computer or similar device. I have a wireless connection to everyone else out there.

From my understanding at it’s core all communication through such devices is handled via binary code, or a series of ones and zeros – energy pulses and flat lines, for myself when I am first making contact I am looking to “feel” the other individuals energy and I may simply ask, “Is “name of individual” here?” and when the answer is a “yes” I often times feel a gentle burst of energy, like a mild adrenaline rush or static electrical discharge.

Just like your devices that are wireless and connected to the internet, I too can translate the binary code into a format that you readily understand, such as text, videos, sound and more.

While I do not fully understand the intimate process of converting binary code into text, in the sense that I cannot look at a series of ones and zeros and read it, I don’t have to as my on-board computer (the brain) is very capable of translating it for me.

Another parallel to the computer/brain analogy is that regardless of the type of data you are working with on your smart phone or lap top, all of the information is displayed on a single screen. Regardless of the source of the material, from your hard drive, from a thumb drive, or from the internet, all of the material that you are working with is displayed in that one location. The same is true for telepathic/psychic communication.

Our brain acts as our computer screen and when our loved ones in spirit or our living animals connect with us, that is where their communications will be displayed/received.

The old meditation technique of clearing the mind of all your thoughts and images only serves to “throw out the baby with the bathwater” as you will be clearing your internal inbox. This technique works well when counting sheep as failed and you are trying to go to sleep, however if your goal is to connect with your higher self and those in spirit, or with the animals in your life, you will be tossing out all their messages as well.

One is advised to instead ask yourself a very simple question with regard to the material in our mind – “Did I generate this piece of information?” and after asking wait for a simple “yes/no” response. A yes will feel like and energy burst and a no will be a flat line.

Example: you go to clear your mind and you find a song running in the background of your mind, one that you have not heard for some time and one that perhaps has been popping into your head for awhile, You may come to find out that the song is a message from a loved one whom you associate the memory of the song with. Recently while providing a connection for a woman whose dog had passed I “heard” a country western song and brought it forward, it turns out that in the memorial slideshow that she made for her dog after his passing, she had used that particular song and the dog wanted to let her know that he was aware of the memorial that she had made regarding him.

Smells are also a powerful messenger as they can be “pushed through” from the other side, recently while making contact with a person who wanted to connect with their passed dog I smelled salt air. I asked about their proximity to the ocean, turns out it’s in their backyard and the dog spent the last three months of it’s life lying on the sand on the beach in the backyard.

When I “experience” something that has happened to another individual, a spirit of a past loved one, or an animal that his still here with us, I actually feel as though the experience is happening to me.

How you ask? Picture the following:

Our body is nothing more than a vehicle for our time  in the physical.

Just as an airplane has a “black box” on board that records all the of vital data regarding flight path, pilot actions and instrument readings, the physical body does as well.

The information that is gathered by our five senses is relayed via electrical impulses through the nervous system to our CPU, i.e. our brain and is then processed – hence the reason it takes a second for pain to register when one stubs a toe or similar.

By replicating the data that is being relayed by the fives senses it is possible for one to have the sensations/feelings that another individual experienced and it may feel so real that it almost feels real.

It’s like taking the data in a flight recorder from a particular time and date to another time and date and then hitting playback.

I can experience what it feels like to fall out of an airplane without my parachute functioning and live to tell about it, unlike the individual whose data I am reading, or anything else for that matter and this covers both physical sensations, thoughts in their mind and emotions.

For me telepathic communication with animals and the spirits of the departed, human or animal is a very visceral experience.

As a psychic medium and animal communicator I have taken to Facebook as a way to stay connected with my “fans” and to teach others about what I do and to educate individuals about psychic phenomena and much more.

Since I work so much with animals I have a lot of animal rescue type folks who I am “friends” with.

A while back I went through my friends list and deleted several who had been posting fairly graphic and gruesome images of animal abuse.

I posted about it afterwards and took some flak from some who felt that it was the only way to draw attention to the abuse that is going on out there. Trust me I am aware of it, but having such images in my news feed made me hesitant to open up Facebook when my kids were around as I did not want to expose my at the time 6 year old girl to such horrific images. I took flak for that too, with people saying that I was too sheltering and that I should let my kids know such evil exists. Trust me, they know, but there is no reason for them to be assaulted by such images on a daily basis.

I strongly believe that the tactic of displaying horrific images of abuse and neglect do more harm than good.

If it is so successful why doesn’t the community that advocates victims rights it rape and violent crimes also use such techniques?

How about your news feed being filled up with images of chopped up humans, dead babies with their eyes gouged out, and burned children – with as graphic as possible images and descriptions typed up beside them. Odds are you would be very offended, and yet when animals are displayed in such a way it’s different? How???

Instead of wanting to learn more, instead of feeling the need to find out more about the person who posted such images and what their cause is, instead I un-friend them, and shy away.

While there is a serious problem with animal abuse in this country and the world in general, I feel the proper way to approach the subject is to bombard us with images of happy, healthy animals that make us want to see more, photos that show their softer side, ones that endure them to us – perhaps with a caption that tells us that this happiness is only possible provided that steps be taken to end the suffering of their bothers and sisters.

As a psychic medium who communicates with deceased animals, I can assure you that they do not appreciate the graphic images taken from their final moments or soon after their passing being displayed for all the world to see.

A side effect that most of you may not consider is the fact that animals are telepathically bonded to those who come into contact with them or with information about them.

The very act of viewing a photograph of an animal is enough to establish a telepathic bond with it, as such every time you look at such an image and think about it, you are drawing that animals attention right back to their traumatic experience and making it more difficult to move on.

Please as someone who cares greatly for the animals on this planet, if you are an animal rights activist or an animal rescue cross poster, please reconsider the use of graphic and horrific images to further your cause, I along with many others feel that it does more harm than good to use such images, not only to the animals themselves, but to your cause as a whole.

Please add your own thoughts and feelings to the comments below.

Thank you,

Movie poster for ParaNorman

Movie poster for ParaNorman

As someone who communicates on a daily basis with those in spirit, I was very excited to be sitting down recently with my family to watch a new DVD release, ParaNorman which was in the theaters this past summer.

ParaNorman is about a kid with the ability to see ghosts and spirits, not only can he see them, he can also communicate with them.

He is the only one in his family with these abilities and at school he is teased and given a hard time for his unique abilities.

The movie centers on a curse that a “witch” had placed upon the town many years ago during a very dark chapter in the towns history, similar to the Salem witch trials.

A group of spirits/ghosts are awoken and pretty soon things in town get really weird and Norman is the towns only hope for dealing with the angry ghosts.

The movie gets a little wild and crazy here and plays very loosely with reality as the ghosts become zombies and go on the attack.

Filmed in stop motion animation by the same folks who do Flushed Away and Coraline, the movie is very well done.

A good way to describe the movie is take one part the Sixth Sense, one part Scooby Doo and one part Diary of a Wimpy Kid and roll them all together into one movie – it works.

Both adults and kids will find this movie entertaining, and the ending is fantastic! I found myself teared up and I was not the only one.

I highly recommend this movie and give it 4.75 stars out of 5 – the only thing that kept it from being a solid five star review was the inclusion of zombies in what was otherwise a fairly realistic take on the paranormal.

Go out and buy it and add it to your movie collection today, you will not be disappointed.
