I suppose that you have not made it, in a controversial field until the critics of your chosen line of work begin targeting you. With that being said, I was rather amused when I read my first piece of unflattering commentary and opinion in a Chicago area online news publication. One of the contributors to the paper had written a piece titled, “Dr. Doolittle works better in movie than in real life.” The author of the piece “Jerry Moore” goes on to write about how hearing an interview with me on WGN radio recently had awoken the skeptic in him. To his credit, I too would have been skeptical listening to that interview as recently as 2006, however my own personal experiences with the supernatural, ghosts, communications from the other side and even the ability to communicate with living animals telepathically has changed my beliefs and knowledge of the world that we live in.

While everyone is entitled to their own opinions on any and every subject , it is a bit different when you make them public in a forum such as a newspaper or TV show. By going public with your viewpoints, or opinions, you are by proxy advertising yourself as somewhat of an expert in the field being commented on or at the very least you are expected to have your facts right and to have researched your subject prior to speaking about it.

Up until this article came out, all the articles written about me are from reporters and journalists who took the time to research the subject that they were writing about. I have provided readings on air while being interviewed on the radio and I have provided readings to reporters who were shocked by the material brought through and then went on to write about their own experience.

Had the author of this un-researched article bothered to read my web site (he claims he did) he would have seen that my very first testimonial is from a woman whose dog I assisted in recovering, she credits me for locating her and says that without my help it would not have been possible for her to have closure, (testimonial is located near the bottom of the home page) In the most recent TV news story which discusses my work in finding lost animals, the owner of Milo a dog that went missing in downtown Chicago is seen on camera saying that after spending less than an hour with her on the phone that I led her right to her dog.

Jerry Moore goes on to say that Karl, (the owner of the dog that is missing in the Wood Dale area near Chicago (which I was being interviewed about)) had contracted my services in locating Queenie, the missing dog. In fact it was due to the publicity surrounding my assisting in the return of Milo that led to my being involved in the hunt for Queenie.
 
A volunteer at the PACT Humane Society came to me with the story about Karl and his missing dogs, she then paid for my services, enough to cover about two house of my time at my regular rates. However I ended up spending over eight hours on the investigation and donated the bulk of my time. I worked directly with both Karl and his fiance’ Amy as well as with several members of the PACT Humane Society.
 
While looking for Queenie it became apparent to me and other members of the search team, that she was not ready to come in yet. Through my abilities I was successful in pulling a volunteer search team out of the Wood Dale area and in to the Elk Grove area where we were able to pick up a trail that had gone cold for over a week. Pretty soon I had the search teams within an hour of her location, unfortunately time worked against us and we lost her in a large field as dark closed in on the search teams. After coming so close to finding her, we decided to change tactics and to begin a more aggressive public awareness campaign and expect that once the weather changes and food becomes more scarce, that she will “turn herself in.”
 
Jerry goes on to comment “But it’s hard to take this stuff seriously, as Peden offers plenty of caveats about his readings. Sometimes he’s able to find lost pets; sometimes he’s not. Sounds like the same chances that volunteer searchers have on any given day.”
 
If my family member was missing, animal or human and there was any chance that consulting a psychic medium and animal communicator would increase the chances of being able to locate them, I would certainly give it a shot … but not prior to having my own experiences … I too was a skeptic.
 
Mr. Moore, I am offering you an opportunity to experience my abilities either over the phone or in an IM chat session. I will with only the name of the animal make a connection with them, describe them back to you, (physical descriptions, ages, manner of passing etc.)  and I will answer any questions that you ask of them in order to confirm a connection. Please call me 925-360-7469 or email me charles@charlespeden.com and I will be happy to provide you with a demonstration of my abilities.

August 8, 2011 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- A dog named Milo that disappeared while his owner rushed to help a woman is back by her side, thanks to a dog communicator.

Screen Capture ABC News 7 Chicago

August 8, 2011 (CHICAGO) (WLS) — A dog named Milo that disappeared while his owner rushed to help a woman is back by her side, thanks to a dog communicator.

Kristin Yoshida and Milo were out for a walk when a woman tried to jump from the CTA stop at Kinzie and Wells. Yoshida pulled the woman to safety, but dropped Milo’s leash. She said she called a “dog communicator” who suggested Milo might be in a parking garage. Yoshida’s father found the dog in the parking garage of Yoshida’s building.

“We were on the phone for less than an hour and he led me right to my dog. And he kept saying something about the number five. I always park down here and today my car is on the fifth floor because there was no parking when I came home,” Yoshida said.

Milo was thirsty and hungry when she found him, but seems to be fine.

Unfortunately the story above lacks several details, as I am the “dog communicator” Animal Communicator, (Pet Psychic) who led Kristin to Milo, let me share my side of the story.
 
August 8th, 2011 was already a busy day with a house call earlier in the day to look into a possible ghost issue at a nearby residence. After identifying the ghost and encouraging him to move on, I returned home just in time to spend some quality time with my family.
 
While sitting down and enjoying a family movie, my phone rang and I knew that it was an emergency. As I left the living room I told my family that I had to take the call and went downstairs to my office.
 
A woman had been walking her dog 48 hours ago and had prevented someone from committing suicide, and while doing so dropped her dogs leash, the dog then ran off. Only knowing that this had taken place around the Chicago area and that the dog’s name was Milo, I proceeded to telepathically connect with Milo and assisted in leading Kristin to him.
 
Prior to describing Milo to Kristin, I saw a small Yorkie like dog, (as it turns out – that dog was missing too and also was in the Chicago area.)
 
When I connected with Milo he told me that he was a medium to large dog, with a lot of black on his face. He told me that he was a working breed.
 
Kristin confirmed the details and then I asked if the bridge was over a narrow yet deep body of water, she said no … I then saw the water turn green and knew that I was dealing with an incident that took place in the downtown part of Chicago. I pulled up a map and while doing so I told Kristin that the bridge was not over water, and that she had been just north of downtown Chicago, which she then confirmed.
 
While looking at the map (via Google) of the city, I saw an intersection that caught my attention. I asked her about the area near the intersection of Kinzie and Wells. Kristin was surprised that I asked her about that location and then confirmed that was where she had lost Milo.
 
I then “saw” a number five and asked if Milo was five and Kristin said “No.” I then told her that number was important and to set it to the side until I made more sense of it.
 
I then “saw” the river again and saw a big bend in it. Then I “saw” a parking garage.
 
I felt as though Milo was trapped, unharmed, thirsty, hungry and dry.
 
Again I “saw” a parking garage, Kristin told me that she thought he had gone into one and began asking questions about it.
 
As it turned out, I ended up describing two parking garages, one with a single level (the one she thought he was in) and I “saw” another garage that Kristin recognized as being hers at home. The garage at her home was multi-level. I “saw” Milo on the fifth floor. He was under a white vehicle that was a cross between an SUV and a sedan, the vehicle had a green logo or lettering on it.
 
I also “saw” the public art sculpture that Milo frequently uses as his place to take care of “business.”
 
At one point I told Kristin to stop wasting time and go out and bring Milo home as he was thirsty and trapped by his leash under the vehicle.
 
Kristin asked me if Milo would come to her father or if she would be the one to find him, I told her that her father would connect with him.
 
After the call I had an errand to run and headed down the mountain and into town. On the way down the hill my cell phone rang, it was Kristin, they had just found Milo.
 
Milo was found on the 5th floor of Kristin’s parking garage. The images I was shown of the one story garage have to do with him going there first. He then showed me several locations he is familiar with while walking around downtown Chicago. The last pieces of information he showed me had to do with him being in his person’s parking garage. Milo was located under a white minivan that was an Enterprise rental vehicle, it had the word Enterprise in green on the vehicle.
 
Later that evening all of the major Chicago based television stations ran a story about how Milo was found with the aid of a “dog communicator” or animal communicator as I like to be referred to.
 
Not all tales have a happy ending, lost animal cases, next to missing person cases, are some of the most difficult types of readings to do. Sometimes great joy can be found in a tearful reunion, other times tragic events have unfolded and the animal may have been killed or as in one recent case, they simply do not wish to return home for one reason or another.
 
Among the world of animal communicators, there are only a handful that work missing animal cases, and even fewer who work without a photo and or description of the animal who has gone missing. I only require the animal’s name in order to establish a connection. Once I have brought forward details that confirm a connection, such as age, breed, physical appearance, events that led up to the animal going missing etc., then I can work with the animal to find out where they are and if it is possible for them to come home on their own, or if I should direct the pet owner to recover them themselves.

One of the most frequent requests that I field is a request to be connected to our spirit guides. Before going into detail regarding this process and how they can assist us in our everyday lives, I would like to discuss spirit guides in general.

Many think that we have one primary spirit guide and perhaps a few others that come and go based upon where we are in our lives.

Many also think that spirit guides may be separate from our circle of friends and loved ones in spirit.

Others assume that we have one primary guide that we know from the other side and that is the extent of it.

The truth is that spirit guides come in all forms and from a multitude of backgrounds.

Spirit guides are no different from any other spirit, living or past – with the exception that they have taken an interest in our life and are here to offer their support and guidance.

Spirit guides may be human, animal or even possibly some other life form.

Spirit guides do not have to have a history or past with you in order to assist you.

Spirit guides may work with us for the duration of our lifetime or a shorter time period, even just minutes or hours.

Anyone who has passed can assume the role of a spirit guide.

We are not stuck with a certain number of guides, we may have many at one moment and the next minute find ourselves on our own or with just a single guide.

Our guides are customizable and as such we can assemble a “dream team” by identifying various areas within our life that we desire coaching in, compiling a list of deceased individuals who excelled at the areas of your life which you wish to improve and lastly, calling upon the spirit of each individual on your list to come to you and provide you with guidance and support.

Frequently I will advise clients who are pursuing such activities as writing, art and music (as examples) to think of individuals whom they greatly admired in their respective fields, and who have passed. Write down their names and ask them to come into your life and provide insights into the areas where you feel that they would be most helpful.

After performing the above exercise, I will then ask my client to book a follow-up session where we can see who responded for their request for assistance.

During the follow-up session I will look to identify those who responded to your request. It is important that you know a little bit about the individuals whom you called upon as I will be describing their physical appearance, perhaps the kind of work they do and other details such as manner of passing, their age, year born/past and much more.

It is in the best interests of those on the other side to assist in making this side run better/smoother. As this is the playground for the soul, those on the other side continue to work hard at making life here more enjoyable and the more that we experience success or are able to bring forward a vision inspired by a deceased artist, the more ready they are to part with their knowledge.

Of course not everyone who we ask to assist us will respond, but, nothing ventured nothing gained, it certainly does not hurt to ask.

When meditating with a guide, it is important to remember that you are seeking information, so if you clear your mind, you will be tossing our the advice that is being given to you.

The trick is to look at the information in your mind and to identify the source of the information.

For example, I frequently receive information through the use of music and music videos. The information can be in the form of lyrics or images in a music video.

If I flash on a song, especially one that I have not heard for sometime, and it seems to be stuck in my head, there usually is a spirit trying to get my attention and the information they wish to relay is contained within the images or lyrics associated with the music.

I use music to illustrate the point that what you are looking for is information in your mind that you did not put in there, and it is easy to identify a piece of music that we have not heard for some time and would not have any reason for it to simply be running in the background of our mind.

As I am not an animal nor am I deceased I can only provide information about the other side and what it is like for our animal companions once they have physically passed, based upon my own experiences garnered through countless readings and my experiences with my own animals.

One constant that seems to remain unchanged is that our animals and our human loved ones reside in a space where they are able to interact with each other and simultaneously are capable of observing us.

The best way to describe the other side “heaven” or “across the rainbow bridge” is to imagine it as a parallel universe, one without “life” and “death” as we know it. It seems to be a more emotion driven world and less of a physically driven world.

While it may seem far off, it really appears to be right here, just vibrating at a different frequency.

One of the biggest challenges in describing the other side is that few if any have survived a trip over there and then returned to tell about it while physically present and how are we to really know if the individual is simply describing the other side or the edge of it. Kind of like describing a house after only entering the garage.

Often times I liken it to describing color to a blind individual who has never had the gift of sight, how would one describe a landscape to them with no real reference point.

In the interest of keeping this as factual as possible I will simply relate what I know to be true and accurate. I will leave the painting of the canvas to someone else and will focus on what I do know about the canvas it’s self.

When I first discovered my gifts as a psychic medium one of the first things that became clear to me was that while looking to connect with the spirits of departed family members, animals would frequently come through. I would not ask for them to come through, I was not trying to connect with animals in spirit, but frequently when connecting with a departed grandparent, parent or loved one, an animal would jump into the conversation.

It was not just a reference to an animal and a person in spirit showing me an animal connected to them, but rather another spirit – that of the departed animal. I clearly recall the first animal that I had come through during a reading. I was working in Benicia at a metaphysical book and gift store when two sisters came in for a reading. They elected to have their readings done separately and when I went to connect with the request the first woman had I saw a large black dog. I described the animal that I saw and the woman got excited, stood up and called her sister over saying that Shadow (a black lab who had passed a few years prior was coming through for her) the womans sister came over, sat down and I proceeded to channel my first departed animal.

For the next several months I would connect with animals that had deceased on a regular basis and then after seven months of providing readings I discovered that living animals can communicate telepathically as well, but that is another story.

Now days I frequently warn people that they should not be surprised if any and all animals that they are or have been connected to may attempt to connect during a reading.

This morning while chatting with a dog who is living I had another dog enter the conversation, a deceased dog, however they really do not feel any different from the living, unless they specifically tell me that they have passed and or I am shown what happened to them.

Imagine if you will that you are on your cell phone driving your car and you represent your spirit while the car represents your body, when you exit your vehicle and continue the conversation on your cell phone, you do not sound or feel any different, after all you are not your car anymore than we are our bodies.

Animals that have deceased are able to interact with our other animals who are deceased as well as our human loved ones in spirit. It does not matter if they never met in person. For example your grandfather who passed thirty years prior can interact with a dog who he never met in person and who has only been passed for a limited time.

Animals that remain with us physically are able to see and interact with those who have passed, however they will still mourn the loss of the physical presence even though they can connect with the departed animals spirit.

One of my favorite examples of this took place in Florida. I was in Vero Beach and while at a polo club and horse boarding facility I was asked to communicate with one of the horses. The question his person posed was “do you miss Cooper?” Having no idea who Cooper was I turned to the horse and asked him if he missed Cooper, he replied “no.” The woman seemed surprised and asked me how was it possible that he did not miss Cooper? Having no idea who Cooper was, I asked the horse to tell me who Cooper was and why he did not miss him – I thought he might be a trainer or something. The horse replied that Cooper was another horse who was four years old last year when he had passed due to cancer, and he remarked that since his passing he has not left my stall, so how can I miss him? To which the woman expressed surprise and delight that I was getting so much detail and she confirmed the answer.

Some of the most common questions I am asked are as follows:

Can my animals who are still here see my animals that have passed?

The answer is: Yes

Can my animal come back to me through reincarnation and spend another life with me?

Usually the answer is no, it seems that our past loved ones wish to remain in spirit until we are able to join them. This allows everything to come full circle so that closure may be had by all parties involved. In addition it seems that animals suffer from the same problem that we do with regard to recollection of past lives and therefore coming back to you would seem like a fresh start to them with little if any connection with the fact that they had recently spent a life with us.

Many times our past animals will however influence the behaviors of our new animals or ones that they left behind and we may catch little bits of their personality coming through in that fashion, similar to me channeling someone and using language and body language that they used to exhibit. In other words, it is possible for a new animal to channel the behaviors of an animal that has passed.

Frequently I am asked if the animals that have passed will be jealous of any new animals that are brought into the household.

What I hear is that your departed animals are happy when you are happy, and they do not want to deny another animal from the joy of living with you. This is especially true with animals that were adopted from shelters and rescued from bad situations.

Animals that have passed are capable of seeing, hearing and feeling anything and everything that we go through. One exercise that helps to confirm this is the following.

Go to a specific location or focus on a particular object and while focused on this object or activity, have a conversation with your animal that has passed. Ask for them to come to you and that you wish to tell them how much you love them … simply chat with them as though they were standing right in front of you.

Afterwords, contact myself or another reputable animal communicator and ask the communicator the following:

Recently I had a conversation with an animal of mine who has passed. I was at a specific location and focused on a particular object or activity while engaged in speaking to the spirit of my departed animal. To confirm that my animal heard me and was present, can you tell me where I was, what I was focused on and or what I was doing?

This is a powerful confirmation that our departed animals remain connected to us and aware of what we are doing and saying to them.

For example:

A gentleman recently took my advice and after our first reading (where I made contact with a departed dog) he went off some place and while engaged in a particular activity he spoke to his departed animal.

After a few days the gentleman contacted me and asked me where was he when he had spoken to the spirit of his departed animal and what was he doing?

The dog showed me a park like setting, a natural park, not a city park with landscaping that was directed by man but rather one that was allowed to be fairly natural. Then I saw the gentleman snapping pictures with his camera, and what really caught my eye was that he was photographing the clouds.

When I described the above to the gentleman he immediately teared up, as that was the confirmation that he was seeking. He had gone to a nearby nature preserve and while there he had been photographing the clouds while chatting with the spirit of his recently departed dog.

I am frequently asked “does my animal still hurt?” and as they leave the physical body behind, the spirit is pain-free. However they can experience emotional pain/ache and the more at peace we are with their passing the easier it is for them to be around us in spirit.

On the rare occasion that our actions result in the premature passing of an animal it is important to remember that it is the intent of our actions more than the outcome that matters.

For example:

You are worried about your animals health and take them into the vet, while there the vet tells you that your animal needs to have surgery. You authorize the surgery and then the unthinkable happens – your animal dies during the procedure.

Your animal will not hold that against you as you were acting in good faith and you were doing what you thought was the right thing to extend their life. The same goes for any accidents, giving the wrong medications, etc., what is truly important is what the intent was.

Sometimes people ask me if their moving away from the home that the animal was familiar with will cause them to stay behind in the old home or will they get lost trying to find my new home?

Once an animal passes they are as mobile as they wish to be and can cover vast distances with little or no effort. Connecting with you and should you have moved since their passing, your new home is not a challenge to them. They will not stay behind and haunt your old home.

 One difficult subject for many is knowing when the right time is to say goodbye to a loved one whose health is failing them.

My rule of thumb is as follows; if this animal were in the wild and with its own kind, would they be able to provide food, shelter and defend themselves as well as keeping up with the movements of their pack or chasing down their prey? If the answer is no, it is time to take a serious look at the reasons for continuing their physical life.

Animals do not fear death, they fear pain and suffering.

I welcome any and all questions on this subject and will do my very best to clarify and or answer any additional questions regarding animals that have passed and what it is like for them.

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.

Recently I had been told by my guides that I should shift the focus of my web site from being a general psychic medium, to a heavier emphasis on my skills as an animal communicator/pet psychic. With the “ink” not even dry yet on the web site redesign, I was pleased to receive the news that my web site had been featured on Nightline as one of those offering services as an animal communicator.

The article was about another pet psychic Dana Miller, who I thought represented what I do in a very good light, overall I thought that it was a good article.

Screen capture from story on Nightline at ABCnews.com

They mentioned that with telepathy you can be anywhere in the world and still facilitate a connection. Just within the last six months, among others I have connected with animals in Greece, England, Mexico, Costa Rica, India and Dubai in the UAE. This afternoon I engaged in a chat with a cat who had lived in Croatia, his person was on the phone in Croatia, while I was in Benicia, CA – near San Francisco.

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.

~ All Species ~ Living and Past ~ Animals Need Not be Present ~ Detailed Information ~


During a recent radio show appearance the subject of how do you find a good animal communicator came up. Something that I noticed while reviewing the web sites of others who claim to be able to communicate with animals was that a number of them had “red flags” (in my opinion) regarding their actual abilities and what they claim to do.

Let’s discuss these “red flags” and how they are perceived as such.

  1. The individual offers animal communication services, yet does not take on cases involving lost or missing animals.
  2. The “animal communicator” requests a photo or description of your animal and may inquire to the animals age.
  3. The “animal communicator” can only work with animals.

1.) This is something that I simply do not understand, if you are able to communicate with animals telepathically why would you avoid these types of readings? I think that it is for the following reasons.

  • A reading for a lost/missing animal is very results oriented, and simple platitudes and observations concerning the animal will not satisfy the client. If the “animal communicator” is unsure of their abilities, they may stay away from these cases.
  • I simply do not “buy” that these people are simply avoiding working these cases because they are too difficult or draining, if you truly can talk with animals why would you not want to help bring an animal back home?

2.) Why would one who can communicate with animals require a description or photograph in order to make a connection?

  • When I am asked to make a connection all I ask for is the name of the animal that we are looking to connect with, if you can talk to the animal, they can describe their appearance.
  • I consider my ability to describe the animal with only a name to work on as proof that I can connect, in addition many breeds have breed specific issues and once the “animal communicator” knows what breed they are working with as well as the age, they can “spin” the rest of the session by offering up material that is specific to the breed you have and based upon the age that you tell them.
  • One of my strongest ways of proving a connection is not only can I describe your animals to you, they will also tell me their ages, why would an “animal communicator” need to know the animals age in advance … unless they are not able to do what they claim to do.
  • I will allow that there are some who are legitimate and yet they continue to ask for photo’s, descriptions and ages of the animals they are being asked to connect with. I challenge those who do this to step away from such crutches and rely upon your abilities … provided that you can do what you claim to do.

3.) News flash … if you can communicate with animals telepathically, you can communicate with all spirits.

  • This is something that really irks me … why do some people claim to only channel one entity or “great spirit” in my experience, if you are capable of talking with an animal you can talk with spirits and if you can talk with spirits, you can talk with all of them, not just one.

I actually ran across one site where there was a disclaimer that read something to the effect of: If I am having an “off” day I may not be able to read for you since I need to be 100% in order to do what I do. I will know within a minute or two of our session starting as to if I am able to work with you or not, should I pull the plug, I will suggest other animal communicators to you to try.

What a load of “horses**t” I read that to mean … If I cannot fool you and I feel like I am being challenged, I will pull the plug.

I have had my off days … we all have but let me be frank with you. Even when I am sick I can channel, even after taking narcotics for pain I can channel (don’t ask … but trust me it still works) even after drinking I can channel, (once again don’t ask) even if I have had no sleep I can channel. When you can talk with animals and spirits and you do it daily or at least weekly … it becomes very “conversational” in that it really does not take any more effort than talking with your friends or loved ones, sure you may feel a bit under the weather, but you can still carry on a conversation.

In closing … use caution when booking an animal communicator, (pet psychic) and remember that I am here to assist you should you wish to connect with your animals.

Thank you,

Ali Hussain Sibat

Ali Hussain Sibat with two of his five children

News Flash: He may not be executed this Friday … story here: http://www.cnn.com/2010/WORLD/meast/04/01/saudi.arabia.sorcery/index.html?hpt=T2

Unbelievable talk about irony … the Saudi’s plan on executing a popular television personality (from Lebanon) for having a belief in the supernatural. It appears that as long as you believe in the supernatural stories about Mohammed and Allah that you are okay, but if you believe in any other supernatural events etc., you are a heretic. Frankly this is disgusting and represents a complete lack of basic appreciation for your own history as well as a fear of change. Saudi Arabia while a “modern” country in many respects is also very much in the dark ages. They have nearly no rights for women and continue to stone and behead people for “crimes” against their religion. For all the talk of Islam being a peaceful religion … I must say that there is nothing peaceful about in-equal gender rights and a disregard for peoples rights to worship as they choose and or to study and research anything other than the party line.

This situation reminds me to some extent of my wife’s former faith. She was born into the Jehovah’s Witness faith (cult) and if you attempt to read anything that is not an “official” document prepared by the church, and that offers other viewpoints, insights or a way of thinking, it is simply not permitted. Islam is full of violence … it was spread through the world at the point of a sword and many in the faith endorse stoning a woman for adultery as well as cutting off the hand of a thief. What other “faith” has suicide bombers? I appreciate that some say that Islam is the religion of peace, but from where I stand, there is nothing peaceful about it. If the Catholic priests stood at the pulpit and called for the destruction of those who do not see things the same way as they do or who are different from them i.e. the “infidels” I am sure that we would have an issue as a society, add stoning people and chopping heads off and I am pretty sure that they would be outlawed for inciting violence. Please note that I do not give the Christian faiths a pass here, they too have been responsible for the deaths of millions of people around the globe and Christianity was also spread at the point of a gun or sword for many hundreds of years.

I do have an issue with any closed minded faith where they preach that they are the only way and that all other religions are false. I have issue with people who believe that they are the “chosen” race and with people who believe that miracles only took place during a short time period roughly 2000 years ago … I personally witness miracles (if you want to call them that) on a daily basis. I routinely communicate with the spirits of the deceased as well as with the spirits of living and passed animals and even plants. I suppose that I too would be up for beheading if I was to visit Saudi Arabia.

For the kingdom of Saudi Arabia to execute this man would be a huge step backwards for them. Even in Lebanon where Ali Hussain Sibat is from, the very most they might do to him is sentence him to two months jail time. Frankly the way he was presented on television, it was more entertainment than anything else and to be killed for that by a foreign country is an outrage. He was not even doing “readings” or practicing as a medium or psychic at the time that he was arrested by the Saudi’s he was simply on a religious pilgrimage. By the king of Saudi Arabia allowing this death sentence to be carried out, he will be hurting relations not just with Lebanon, but with the world at large.

I was considering a visit to the middle east, however I think that perhaps it would be best for me to stay as far away as possible. What is happening in Saudi is similar to the Salem Witchcraft Trials that took place during the 1600s. To make matters worse, read this quote from an article I found at NPRs web site.

“Sarah Leah Whitson, the Middle East director at New York-based Human Rights Watch, says the problem is that Saudi Arabia has no specific law governing such crimes.

Instead, judges view people who believe in the supernatural as heretics and often sentence them according to the judges’ own personal training in Sharia, or Islamic law. Whitson says this means anyone could be targeted.” The full article may be found here.

For another article from CNN regarding this outrage, click here.

I really am getting tired of closed minded individuals who tell me that their “god” is superior to anything I am aware of and that it is only demons that are pretending to be the spirits of animals and our loved ones. Why is it that people feel a need to kill those who do not agree with their narrow minded version of life and events. Why is it that  those who attempt to study for themselves with material of their own choosing … risk death by doing so. I believe that it is fear and tradition. Fear of the unknown, fear of being wrong, fear of change, fear of (above all things) losing their power over other people.

In many “religions” the man has rights, but the woman does not. In many “faiths” you are forbidden to look at anything that does not support the religion’s ideology. By restricting freedom to study and worship as you choose, the leaders of the religions are able to control the masses through fear and intimidation. My wife was disfellowshipped for a rumored transgression as an 18 year old girl and was summoned to stand in front of her congregations elders and to either repent and toe the party line, or to be banished from the faith. She was banished and her family stopped speaking with her as did nearly all of her friends. Fortunately for her she was able to escape the cult and now lives a much more fulfilling and rewarding life.

Recently I was told by a religious zealot that I had better be sure that what I was doing was genuine, because if not … I would have an eternity to burn in hell and think about it. Why is it that people claim that their faith is full of love and peace and then go around making statements to the opposite effect.

Ali Hussain Sibat is also married with five children … how can Saudi Arabia execute this man with a clean conscience … and taking into consideration that he harmed no one.

One final thought … if it wasn’t for all the oil that we purchase from Saudi Arabia, do you think that we would put up with their human rights violations?

For more about myself and what I do visit www.charlespeden.com.

Recently while sharing a snippet of a recent communication with a dog on Facebook, someone commented that they could understand how an animal may be able to relay information such as fresh paint, but they were having difficulty understanding how an animal could relay a message that included something such as the name of a street, town etc. After answering the question to some extent, I realized that I should share my response (in greater detail) and with more than just those who I know on Facebook.

Essentially everything that the spirit of someone’s loved one on the other side is capable of doing regarding communication on a telepathic level is possible with living animals. Just as no two of us are the same in our communication skills and abilities, the same is true of spirits of humans and animals as well as living animals. I would also like to add that to me, all spirits are alive and referring to someone as dead is kind of silly. It’s like I am chatting with you on your cell phone while driving and then you step outside of your vehicle, you are the same and you sound the same .. you are just not inside your vehicle anymore. When I connect with spirit or living animals, it’s the same. Frankly, most of the time when I connect with an animal I have to ask if they are passed or living as it is not always clear right away.

Not all animal communicators are the same and some may be a bit more restricted in what they receive as they may not have abilities at quite the same level as others or may have stronger abilities in other areas. I will speak for myself here and no one else, though many will share all of these abilities at some level. Just like anything else, the more we use our abilities, the stronger they become and the more efficient one is at utilizing them.

Animals too vary in their ability to communicate telepathically with us and frequently the more practice they have with us, the easier it may be to connect, should they feel so inclined. Now … on to the good stuff, how information comes in from telepathic communications with animals, both living and or deceased.

How I communicate with animals both living and passed.

The vast majority of the communications I have with animals are while chatting over the phone with their person. I have no prior information concerning the animal, often times I do not even know the species I will be connecting with … all I want is a name.

Rumpelstiltskin Crane 1886 Illustration

Rumpelstiltskin Crane 1886 Illustration

To me, names are like addresses and (perhaps Rumpelstiltskin was on to something) even though I frequently connect through intent alone and do not even need a name, a name gives me something tangible to use to connect with them. I do not ask for a photo and find that they hamper my abilities, a photo or description removes one of the strongest ways to confirm a connection with the animal, what they look like. I understand that many animal communicators will ask for a photo to connect, but … if you are truly communicating with that animal, you should be able to describe the animal back to the “owner” without any help.

After receiving the animals name I will telepathically request that the animal with the name I was given and who is connected to the person that I am speaking with to please connect with me and describe themselves to me. Many times the animal is already connecting with me, I may have seen them in the minutes leading up to the reading or even days prior or perhaps just a few seconds earlier as they will have been following our conversation and waiting for their cue. Remember that communication is a two way street and if you are discussing a issue that is sensitive to the animal, they may not want to talk. When an animal does not want to talk I can employ the “burning ears” technique” which is where we discuss the offending behavior (usually) and at some point the animal may feel that they have to “butt in” so that they may present their side of the story. After a connection is made, the issues can be brought out and put on the “table” so that both parties may air their grievances and a compromise or some other type of resolution can be obtained if not at least a basic understanding of what is going on.

When I ask for an animal to connect with me, I may see another animal than the one that you want to connect with. Just this morning while doing a reading I was asked to connect with an animal named Kelley, (not her real name) and in the process of connecting with her a different animal came through. The first thing I “saw” in my minds eye, was a larger black dog with a bit of a thicker coat. As I described the animal to the person I was doing the reading for, they said that I did not have Kelley. After a few seconds, and after completing the description of the animal, the person told me that was a dog from her childhood. This dog felt that it was important to remind the woman that he was still a part of her life and that even though he had passed physically, that he was still there in spirit.

I asked the person what the dogs name from her childhood so that I could verify that this indeed was the dog coming through and immediately it was confirmed by him. After chatting with “Ralph” for a few minutes, I went back to connecting with Kelley. This time I “saw” Kelley coming through as the dog that I described next was indeed her. The vast majority of the conversation was in images as well as emotions. At a few points I teared up as touching details were brought through and memories were divulged. Kelley had to be put to sleep and the “owner” had been torn up about it, she wanted to know that she had done the right thing and at the right time. At one point during the “conversation” I simply heard the name of a dog breed and asked why it was that I was hearing the name of this breed, which I knew looked nothing like the dog I was chatting with and the woman confirmed that she had recently added two of that breed to her household shortly after the passing of Kelley. Kelley even went so far as to describe the color of the bedspread on her bed and to inform her that she now hung out on her pillow from time to time, in spirit.

When communicating with animals, they are able to relay information through physical sensations and feelings, such as feeling a broken neck, (yes I will feel like my neck was broken) or if they had been scared, feeling the adrenaline flowing through their body. Animals can also use taste and smell as information, I can actually taste what dog food etc., tastes like to them and in some cases this can be a bad thing for me. I now know what a live mouse tastes like compared to one that has been frozen and then thawed in a microwave, trust me the live mouse is delicious in comparison, according to the barn owl I was speaking with.

Emotions are used in pretty much every animal communication session … I will feel intense love, anger, fear etc., depending upon what the animal is relaying to me. When I tear up during a session, it is not my emotions. I will tell you that honestly I have had several animals pass that I was close to and with the exception of the first one, I have never shed a tear about their passing. I also had a friend who passed recently and I am yet to shed a tear at her passing … nor do I expect to as I communicate with her regularly and see the big picture, so when I tear up during readings it is invariably the emotions of the one I am channeling or communicating with as opposed to my own emotions.

Dog and Cat

Animals are able to live vicariously through us and as such they have a wealth of information about us, what we do for a living … what we think about when we are bored, our dirty little secrets … and our hopes, dreams and ambitions. Animals are often aware of such details as their home address, the proper spelling of their name, names of nearby towns, cities and streets as well as parks of course. Most of the time they will simply show me pictures, but sometimes I will simply “hear” the words or even “see” them spelled out in an image. Recently I had a dog that told me that he was off of a street named Paint. When I connected with the dog (who was missing) he showed me who was with him when he went missing and he described the physical surroundings such as the road, the surface not be paved, a long fence line, out in the country etc., then when I asked him where he was now, he sent the smell of fresh paint to me. I tried to figure out what had been painted recently and in what color, but was not able to get that information from him. Once again I was shown the smell of fresh paint again, it then dawned on me that this was not a reference to actual paint, but to something else. Later while looking at a map of the area he went missing in, I was pleasantly surprised to see that less than a mile away from where he went missing there was a road by the name of Paint! Sometimes the information is a clue and not to be taken literally.

With animals that are no longer physically present, there is one means of communication left and that is direct channeling/merging. Imagine if you will that your spirit is like the driver of a car and that the body is like your car. Just as you can scoot out of the drivers seat and allow someone else to drive your car, in some cases spirits of those who have passed will merge with me so that I may channel them directly. When this happens I will frequently take on their physical traits and will move like them, act like them and even sound like them. I do not permit this to take place very often, most recently it happened during a group reading where all of a sudden I began to shake as if I had Parkinson’s, the father of the woman I was reading for at the moment had Parkinson’s and had chosen a dramatic way to make his presence known, trust me it worked very well.

Not too long ago I was watching a nature show on PBS and it occurred to me that I appreciated most animals but had a bit of a problem with snakes. Now I have never been bitten by a snake but sadly in my past I had an aversion to them that was very strong … to the point that I may have ended some snake lives prematurely. So … I was watching this show and they began discussing snakes and they showed footage of thousands of them coming out of hibernation. As I watched it I thought to myself, great … with my luck I am going to channel a snake, I have channeled other animals directly before, but not a snake.

Later that evening I was sitting on the couch with my wife when I noticed the spirit of an animal in our living room. It was very low to the ground and at first I thought that it might be a lizard or something similar as it appeared to have these tiny arms and legs. I could see the ethereal form of the spirit and it was about four feet in front of me, all of a sudden it ran straight towards me and entered my chest.

I slumped forward for a second as I transfered the controls to the snakes spirit and within seconds I noticed a change. I felt as though I had a snakes body, I still felt as though I had arms

and legs, but now they were at my sides and if I flexed one arm or the other I would move side to side. I also noticed that my movements were different … I wasn’t walking around, but simply turning my head felt different. The biggest change though was my vision, I could see both regular images as well as infrared images. When looking at my wife it was a bit odd to see her heat signature and when I looked at my rabbit, he began to look pretty tasty. Then I felt the weirdest/coolest sensation and that was opening my mouth and feeling as if fangs that had been folded up were dropping down and into place. I am not sure what type of snake he was, probably a rattlesnake, I never did remember to ask him. According to my wife I did the tongue flickering thing, I don’t even remember that. The end result was that after a few minutes he left and I found a new respect and admiration for snakes. One of the things he left me with was the fact that they are far more frightened of us than we should be of them and I had to agree with him. In addition I had to respect their their role in the circle of life and in controlling rodent populations.

Hopefully I did not freak any of you out to badly with the snake story … it really is incredible what is possible if we simply look past what we think we know and accept that there may be more to life than that which we are aware of on the surface.

In summary, animals communicate in a vast number of ways on a telepathic level and the wealth of information that can be received is incredible. A good animal communicator (pet psychic) should be able to communicate with all species, should not require a photograph or a description and should be able to provide accurate and detailed information such as ages, dates, physical descriptions, descriptions of surroundings, favorite activities, locations and much more.

Next time I will write more in depth on the subject and a little bit about how you too can communicate with your animals telepathically. To learn more about myself and what I do, visit www.charlespeden.com.
