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.

If interested in developing your own abilities to communicate with spirit and animals, you may consider taking advantage of the new one-on-one training and development sessions now being offered over the phone.

Over the years Charles Peden has refined his techniques and developed a great ability to communicate with animals living and past, and the spirits of our ancestors and loved ones who have left us for the spirit realm.

Based upon his experiences and aware that other people were having similar experiences, yet were experiencing difficulties with understanding what was happening to them or how to manage and control the abilities, Charles has decided to mentor and coach those seeking help with understanding and/or developing their own abilities to communicate more effectively with animals and/or those in spirit.

All of us are different with regard to our abilities and our strengths and weaknesses. While it is impossible to place any type of guarantees as to what your abilities will be like after receiving instruction and coaching from Charles, you can be assured that you will have a far better understanding of such abilities, how they work and how to utilize them.

At present each lesson is tailored to the individual, as such there is no formal class structure, rather individual coaching and training on a one-on-one level with a professional psychic medium and animal communicator.

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.

Missing Animal Cases

a.) Not all animals will want to be located, no offense … but your animal may have been ticked off by something and you may not even be fully aware of it.

If for some reason your animal is angry or upset with you or a situation in your home, they may be willing to return if you are able “talk it out” and come to an understanding where both of your needs are met.

For example: A dog was adopted out and soon after being adopted, the new “owners” called the shelter to report the dog had gone missing. I connected with the dog after one of the shelter’s personnel contacted me about the situation. The dog informed me that the home that he had been adopted out to was overcrowded with other animals and that he wanted nothing to do with it. The dog proceeded to inform me of the general details of the area that he was hiding in and gave a good reason for not trusting the shelter people … if they adopted me out to this place, why should I take my chances and go back there? Freedom can to some dogs be a bit too much of a calling and when running away from “bad” situations, they may end up going feral if food, water and shelter can be found on their own, or they may end up moving on and finding another family to adopt them, one that they have vetted on their own.

b.) Some animals will wish to shield you from any knowledge of a difficult passing. Though some animals seem to be okay with leading their humans to their physical remains … not all are comfortable with it and depending on their manner of passing, they may wish to protect you from it.

Animals do not fear death, they fear pain … both physical and emotional. If you consider the fact that “your” animals are connected to you telepathically and that the way that you talk about them, feel about them and think about them directly affects them, they will try and avoid additional pain and suffering for both parties.

For example: A woman had lost her cat and after going missing she contacted me. I connected with her cat and described a neighborhood where the homes were spaced six hundred feet apart with manicured lawns between them. She replied that was not anything like her neighborhood where the homes were fifty feet apart. I provided further details and after a bit it all came together. I had described a location directly across the lake from her, where she found her cat washed up on the shoreline. As the body was not damaged, the cat felt perfectly fine with leading her to his body. In many cases where the body is badly injured and visibly damaged, the animal will not lead you to the body so that you do not have to endure imagining the pain and suffering that they went through in their final moments. As they are connected to you, they feel the way you think of them and so they are also protecting themselves from having to be reminded of their difficult passing.

c.) Foul play does occur on occasion and an animal that went missing, may have been stolen for one reason or another. These cases are difficult because often times the thieves leave the area and it is possible that your animal may go through several hands before being sold or disposed of in some way.

For example: Dog fighting involves not just fighting dogs, but “bait” dogs as well. In some situations smaller animals that are not purebred or young enough to be resold as pets may end up being used as bait to make the fighting dogs more aggressive. I personally know the location where some of these dogs bodies are dumped after being mangled by the fighting dogs.

In one missing animal case I dealt with a Chihuahua who had been stolen from right in front of their person’s home. The dog told me that he was north, and by the market … and that he was in a cage or trapped in some fashion. I went north of the home on foot and found nothing, then I saw the market … it was south and east of the home … not north. A few days later the dog was returned. The story was that the dog had ended up in a flea market in a town just north of us and was on display in a carrier at the market. The man claimed to have purchased the dog for $500 for his daughter at the market, saw a story in the paper about the missing dog, realized what had happened and simply wanted to be reimbursed for the purchase price and declined the larger reward that had been offered.

When an animal is captured, often times they are fearful, and in unfamiliar surroundings. They may try describing individuals holding them, which if you do not know them … may mean nothing to you. Also if taken out of the area, the clues may be confusing if we are trying to match them up to the immediate area. If changing hands, the descriptions will change as to their surroundings, the persons holding them and what types of vehicles may be involved … very difficult to pinpoint. Add to the mix that these clues will be next to impossible to confirm and therefore very difficult to follow up on.

d.) Sometimes an animal simply needs to get out and stretch their legs and when done, they will come back … not when you call them, but on their terms, when they want to. Sometimes they are stuck … in need of help and given an opportunity to voice where they are and how to rescue them, they will shout it out to me. Sometimes a kind hearted individual takes them in and cannot track you down right away or doesn’t see one of your missing flyers. On occasion the missing will turn up at local shelters or even one a bit further away than you thought your animal would travel.

Provided the animal wishes to be located, it is important to bear in mind that it is possible that the clues coming in are from your animals perspective. In a case that I was working in southern California, a cat was trying to confirm my connection to him by describing his “owners” backyard and the features within in. He kept showing me a tree that to me looked like a willow tree. The cats person insisted that there were no willow trees in the area, I tried to dismiss the image, but it would not go away. I then was shown fruit on the tree and told that it was much smaller than a willow tree. I then asked about a kiwi tree, and was told that she had three of them in her yard, I then described cacti and they too were confirmed.

The bottom line is that I can help nearly everyone obtain some degree of closure when it comes to cases involving missing animals. I simply cannot guarantee that you will be led to their body or that a joyful reunion will take place. The following are some suggestions for effectively locating your missing animal.

1.) Remain calm … as difficult as this sounds it will help you think clearer, it will be more calming to your missing animal and will make it easier on those assisting you with the search. I have actually had animals tell me that their “owners” tearful and ear piercing calls were frightening him and not the soothing shelter and home that he wanted. He had been injured and was afraid that his condition would cause their person to break down and completely lose it, as they clearly could not handle them simply being missing.

2.) Remember that your animal is tuned into you telepathically and hears absolutely everything that you are thinking and is aware of what you are doing. In one case a woman planned on closing the garage door and trapping her cat and not allowing him to go out again. So guess who was careful to avoid returning home and triggering her traps. A certain cat had found freedom to be intoxicating and knowing what his person was planning should he return was enough to keep him away. To him having his outside time taken away entirely was simply not acceptable and he preferred to take his chances on his own.

3.) Animals contrary to popular belief, do not love us unconditionally. If conditions are unacceptable our animals tend to let us know through “misbehaving” or they may simply take off. They too have free will and have feelings just like you and I. Remember that since “your” animals can sense your true feelings and intent, be honest with them and do not treat them like children or babies. Animals are intelligent and deserve our respect.

4.) Contact the shelters in your area and even those just outside your area. You may also check with the local veterinarians and check with your neighbors to see if they saw anything.

5.) Post flyers, contact a pet finder service in your area and if you still need help contact someone such as myself.

Working the Case:
The first thing that I do when contacted regarding a missing animal case is request the “owners” name and the animals name and no further details.

Often times the first details to come in will be a physical description of the missing animal, and or unique traits and behaviors or personnel stories about the animal. As these details come in, it is important that you do not offer anything other than “yes” and “no” replies, no further details. Additional animals may come through during the reading who are also connected to you … and your animal, both living and passed may come through.

Once a connection is established and both of us feel that I am connecting with your missing animal, we will then ask questions regarding the nature of the disappearance. To me this in many cases is quite conversational, where I may ask a simple question and be given a simple reply such as “what were the workmen who scared you doing in the home?” and the dog replied to me “removing the carpeting and installing flooring” to which the “owner” said “yes, that is correct!” Sometimes the animal will “clam up” and I may have to apply what I call the “burning ears” technique which is where we will begin discussing the animals offending behaviors until the animal feels the need to stand up and speak for themselves so as to “set the record straight.”

Though I cannot assure you a happy conclusion to your missing case, I can guarantee you a greater sense of understanding and perhaps even closure, with or without your beloved animal companion returning to you. Please understand that you are paying for my time and not the results, as such and given the stressful nature of missing animal cases I operate on a somewhat sliding scale. Initial consultations are free, 5-10 minutes and should anything develop and you feel the information coming through was of some value to you and we go longer than a few minutes pay me what you can afford … based upon my regular rates. If after an initial consultation your animal is still missing, you may request a follow up session, though by and large if that is the case and it goes over 5-10 minute you will be expected to pay my regular rates.

Charles has a strong belief that we are all capable of what he does. His gifts are not unique to him as we all have the potential to connect with our 6th sense. Many of us connect with “spirit” and are not aware of it, or we are and we do not mention it to others. By guiding you to connect with your own abilities many have found that they can sense and communicate with both spirit and animals with practice after a few lessons with Charles as their guide and teacher. Look for workshops to be announced in the near future.
