Airing Out My Dirty Laundry

PalaminaI am very fortunate to have a nice clothesline in the back of my place which I use mainly for hanging out my bedding.  So one sunny day out goes my bedding on the clothesline and I’m thinking how nice it will be to be sleeping on the freshly air-dried bedding that night. 

Just as I was about to take down the bedding, I was so surprised to see almost all the corners were soiled with what looked like dirt.  I’m scratching my head wondering how in the world did this happen.  All kinds of things went through my mind yet none of them could explain how this came about.

What confused and surprised me is the next time I hung out my bedding the same thing happened!!!  Go figure!!!  It took the third time that the mystery of airing out my dirty laundry was solved!!!

As I turned the corner to the clothesline, the horse from the next pasture had one end of my sheet in her mouth waving it up it down.  The minute she saw me she went galloping out into the pasture.  I now knew how the ends of my bedding got so soiled.  What a relief!

Knowing that animals (and they do not have to be your own) are always teaching a lesson, I got quiet and connected with the horse to see what was the lesson here.  What I heard her say is PLAY.  I then thanked her for the message.

Some time later I met a new friend and guess what?  She loves to play games and has numerous board and card games!  BINGO!!!  And now about every week or so we get together and play games.

I’m so amazed and grateful at how our animal friends are always supporting us in being our best and that I’m able to connect with them to hear their lesson!

Love, Light, and Happy Trails!

We Brought This Cat To You

ThomasGandhiMini-pracpostIt took about a year after moving to the Black Hills of South Dakota for the appearance of a cat to show up lapping up the water from the birds’ water bowl.  The cat showed up mainly in the mornings.  I referred to him as the tom cat.   

One morning as I was sitting outside on the porch, the cat saw me, strolled over, and jumped in my lap.  He immediately stood on his hind legs, wrapped his paws around my neck, and gave me a hug. What surprised me was that I felt no pricking from his claws. 

The cat then found a comfortable place on my lap and took a cat nap.  I then discovered that this cat had no front claws.  My thought was this has to be somebody’s cat.  His morning visits continued over the weeks.

The weather forecast was predicting an overnight rain.  A friend recommended I bring the cat in.  I resisted.   First, because I thought he must belong to someone and second, at this time in my life I needed time to myself.  Taking care of my Father’s affairs after his passing away and putting down my dog, Ginger, had drained me.

So it rained hard that particular night and as I came out to fill up the bird feeder, around the corner of the house came the tom cat drenching and dripping wet.   That was it.  I had to do something.  I got a towel, wrapped him up, and brought him inside.

Still feeling he was someone’s cat, I placed flyers around the town.  As I was placing the last flyer up, I heard within me a distinct, clear voice say, “We brought this cat to you.”  I then said to myself I will give it two weeks and if nobody claims him I will.  I was not surprised when no one responded to the flyer.

So about a couple weeks later, I was reading the Letter to the Editor page where a town resident was warning that stray cats were being rounded up, taken to the dump, and were being shot!!!  My heart sank!!!  I now knew why I was given that message.

To this day, I have such a deep gratitude for this tom cat coming into my life and oh, what lessons he is teaching me.

So when have you resisted signs or messages that was guiding you and what happened to help you to follow through on that guidance?

Love, Light, and Happy Trails!


p.s. Enjoy the picture of my cat, Thomas, (taken from tom cat).  He’s a big boy weighing in at about 16 pounds.  Oh, by the way, his full name is Thomas Tiger True Heart!♥♥♥

The River Spirit God

embudo-river-spirit-godp-e1553784993982.jpgIt was around the time when the Water Protectors in North Dakota was protesting  against the building of the pipeline.   I so wanted to champion their cause and did send funds in support of their efforts.  I did not realize how that desire would bring about such a deep, profound experience. 

The river that flows through our small town became a perfect place where a blessing of the water ceremony was to take place in support of the Water Protectors’ cause.  I was so excited about participating.  Then at the very last minute I was guided not to go.  I struggled with this guidance as I watched the clock and knew the ceremony was beginning. 

As I sat in my chair gazing out the window, I was trying to sense the ceremony within my being.  Then I saw (in a vision thru my mind’s eye) a swirling energy form in the river by the edge of the property where I live.  It continued to swirl upward until I saw a face form.  I was in awe! 

The completely formed swirling river being streamed from the river to hovering over my rooftop.  The face stared at me intensely as I was wondering what was going to happen next.  Then these words formed out of my mouth, “Go forth.” 

Immediately the river being transformed into a beam of bright water as it traveled swiftly in the sky northward.  Then I see the beam dive into the river where the Water Protectors were.  To say I was in total amazement is an understatement!!!

Even though I have always felt a kinship to our natural resources, this experience deepen my gratitude.  I hope sharing this experience helps you to become more aware of the aliveness of our natural water resources and to come to have a deeper appreciation of how precious our water is to all on this planet.

So when did you struggle with your own inner guidance and what experiences have you had that changed you at a deeper level.

Love, Light, and Happy Trails!


p.s. Enjoy the pictorial artwork I composed based on the image of the river being I saw in the vision.  I now refer to this being as the River Spirit God.


My Mother Sent Me Spirit

White horse Sue Warner copyAs I sat by my computer gazing out of the front window, I was stunned and excited to see a white horse galloping down the dirt road.  I immediately dashed out of the door just to see two men on an ATV riding after the white horse.

After capture, I saw one of the two men walking this magnificent white stallion right by me.  I made a comment about the beauty of the horse as I felt such a magnetic drawing to the horse at my heart. The one man then confessed that he had not latched the coral gate and the horse went galloping off.

Even though I live in a rural area, seeing a sight like this is unusual yet I have come to trust what I call signs from the Universe.  This one really caught my attention.  I knew my dearly departed Mother was sending me support (she considered white horses to be good luck) as I was 6 weeks away from fulfilling my requirements of being certified as an animal communicator.

And oh, by the way, when I asked the man what was the horse’s name, he said his name is SPIRIT!!!  Just the sound of the horse’s name brought on a deep knowing that I would be certified as an animal communicator (certified in July 2018).  It helped me to relax and just have fun working towards my certification.  Thank you, Mom, for I am truly  grateful for your support through Spirit.

So what kind of signs have you received and what was the message it was bringing to you.

Love, Light, and Happy Trails!


p.s. OMG!!! Soon after I finished this blog I got a call from the my 101-year-old Aunt who I consider to be a bridge between my Mother and myself.  All she wanted to say is that she loved me.  I knew immediately that was a message from my mother knowing that I just completed this blog about her support for me.  What an amazing Universe!!!

p.s. The picture of the white horse painting so captures Spirit’s image and essence. It is so realistic!  Sue Warner is the artist.  Go to her facebook page to see more of her paintings –

Cat Medicine

thomastigerthrowupdateAs I reflect back on December, I am wondering how in the world did I make it through that month.  It started off with heart palpitations that started to increase.  I had learned how to remedy them yet I was noticing that what I was doing was not getting the job done. 

Each week they intensified so much so that I ended up in the emergency room and there was not a clue from any of the tests as to why I may be having them.  I was so grateful when I was able to ‘connect the dots’ to another way to remedy this very challenging health situation and started on my road to recovery.

While I spent most of my time in bed, my cat, Thomas, was of constant support as he was close, next, or snuggled in my neck.  This was not his usual habit to be continually by my side. Also I knew it was a good sign when for the first time in about 6 weeks, Thomas did not sleep next to me. I am so grateful for his presence and what I call cat medicine which was so much a part of  my recovery.

Also I was not surprised to learn that there is supportive evidence of cat medicine.  Researchers have found (see video – dated 10/14/18 – on my Facebook page that having a cat can help with heart, immune, joint/muscle, and mental health as well as sleeping better at night.  So how has your animal companion helped you or supported you during trying times?

It all really started with Harmony!


So how in the world did I become an animal communicator? That was a good question for me to answer for myself and share with all of you. It’s hard for me to remember a time that I didn’t have an animal in my life and I always wondered and wanted to know more about their world.

Then Harmony, a dog of mixed breed, came into my life in my early 30‘s and remained in my life for about 15 years.  When she crossed over, she showed me in a vision where she went to on the other side!  How comforting that was and how awe struck I was with experiencing that!  She has now become my helper animal (assists me in a variety of ways) in animal communication sessions as she brings such a steady, centering energy and dare I say she brings harmony.

As I recently reflected on that experience, I came to realize a door opened to another level of communicating with animals.  After that vision, I gradually started to observe that I could see, hear, and just know what animals were communicating to me and I had two other animal companions show me where they went to on the other side too!

About 3 years ago I started to get strong signs that were all relating to working with animals.  It came in all forms…through friends, a book, emails, and even in a visitation with St. Francis of Assisi.  I felt I was being pestered (in a good way) by the Universe to start on that path with animals.

Then an email arrives offering a talk by animal communicator, Danielle MacKinnon, called Animals and the Other Side.  This so intrigue me given the experience I had with 3 of my crossed-over animals that I signed up.  With encouragement from a friend, I decided to register for her beginning animal communication class and continued with classes that led to being certified as an animal communicator in her school program.IMG_2558U

Who would have known it would have taken a couple of decades to bring me to this point in time of working with animals?  However, the Universe never gives up on us with  guiding to the highest and best good for all.  I am eternally grateful for that as it was known how passionate I am for animals.  And it was known how perfect this work is for me and to be sharing this work with others is an honor and a blessing.

Happy Trails and Happy Holidays to All!


p.s. It hit me the other day the synergy of doing my first blog about Harmony and the holiday picture of her is so in alignment with this upcoming holiday season.  I so feel she had her paw in the timing of this.  Thank you, Harmony, for you are a blessing and of great support to me all the way from the other side!
