Animals add to the beauty and joy of life on Planet Earth. When I became an animal communicator, I learned a great deal, and I connected with animals so I could feel them and their thoughts. (It’s not just reading animals; it’s like “being” an animal and seeing their environment through their eyes.)

When I look through the woods behind my home, I see an incredibly beautiful world where deer dance on hind legs, foxes sing in strange high voices at dawn, birds speak of danger, happiness, or beauty, and wolves talk in powerful tones. Each wild animal possesses a special quality. Deer bring love, grace, and gentleness. Bears bring dreams and healing; they reveal subconscious thoughts and dreams. Raccoons play like adolescents, and rabbits reveal fear and the need to hide. Owls represent rebirth or death, and wolves are special teachers and companions. Overall, wild animals hold specific energies of nature that feed our souls

In this post, I’m sharing a few tips about domesticated animals as their lives are intertwined with us. When we improve our relationship and understanding of our pets, our lives and their lives improve immensely. I discovered this interconnectedness when reading pets at an Atlanta chiropractor’s office. Her patients healed more easily if I cleared and talked to their pet (via photo) before their chiropractic session. We were both amazed!

I’m sharing a few basic, interesting facts. (If you want to know more, email me at and I’ll plan a class.)

  • Your dog or cat loves you deeply. Cats and dogs want a wonderful life for us. They try to provide positive energy and help in finding higher vibrations by providing love, amusement, or sympathy—or whatever they think you need. They actually hold a vision of how your life should look and feel. (They are very aware of your thoughts and feelings. They often lie close to their owners when they don’t feel well.)
  • Finding the right name for your animal is very important as it forms an intuitive link with your dog or cat. With dogs, it’s best to start by finding the right consonant and by sounding out possible names that begin with the syllable. The dog will look at you and respond when you find the right name—or better yet, you feel the right quality of the name. All cats have a secret name and a name for the outer world. Many people seem to find the right outer name. A cat tells you its inner name—or you intuit it. By knowing your cat’s secret name, you forge a very strong bond.
  • Dogs and cats absorb energy from your environment. Dogs exude positive energy, and cats absorb negative energy. Dogs like sleeping in positive energy, and cats feed on the negative energy, which radiates from people, places, computers or other electronic devices. A cat’s purr consists of a frequency between 25-150 hertz, which is within the vibration that promotes healing of bones and tissue as well as lowering blood pressure. Cats often lie on a particular chakra to help promote healing and movement of energy. (My cat literally jumps on my head when I open my crown chakra. The other cat rests and purrs on an old injury.)
  • Dogs live very much in the present, but they have super senses such as hearing, smelling, and feeling, which I completely trust. They are more attuned to the energies of physicality. Cats can see and travel through the astral world; they can literally see this type of energy. Everyone has seen an outdoor cat appear out of nowhere.
  • Animals are aware of color, and the color of their bed, leash, bowl, or pillow makes a difference. Use the colors of the 7 chakras as a guide to find the right color for your bed. Light blue is soothing, shades of aqua and pink relate to universal love. Red and orange relate to physical energy. Yellow reflects happiness. Purple and violet represent higher vibrations, and while they work well for a few special animals, the vibrations are too high for most pets.
  • All animals see color but not as we do. The colors are muted or different shades of colors, but they are identifiable. Most animals like looking at the sky, and they see it as blue. The movement of shapes and physical forms is also not the same. Nevertheless, when you and pet agree on a color and communicate it, they know what you’re saying. (I discovered this when riding a horse and asking him to go over the white jump. Harvey asked, “The big white jump or the little one?”)
  • Animals are very visual, and it’s easier for them to understand your thoughts and directions if you make a visual image. Hand gestures help as well.
  • Animals have no fear of death as they have no karma. However, they stay with us as long as possible if we truly need them—particularly on an emotional level. Animals reincarnate, and they sometimes return to your life as a puppy or kitten.

    Thank you for your thought provoking post. While I’m not an animal communicator, I’m pretty sure animals reincarnate with us as well- stay with us until they”feel” we can be without them- even if until they return to earth plane later.

    I’ll need to think (and ask them) about colors; I always ask them their name(and usually get an ‘answer’ immediately!


    • Julia Griffin

      Yes, you’re right. They do reincarnate with us quite often. It sounds as if you have a knack with animals!
      Color makes a big difference in how animals feel.

      Blessings to you, too!
