I Have a Story to Tell

I have a story to tell. Yesterday afternoon I went for a horseback ride with Sally (one of wonderful women facilitating with me at the Horse and Soul workshop here in Costa Rica), Leila (the woman behind the Freedom Tracks documentary), and Ronald (our trusty guide). A lot happened. My human riding companions, Sally, Leila, […]

That Chihuahua

I’ve been in Costa Rica for a week now and I can feel myself falling into a very different rhythm. I can feel myself slowing down. I can feel my heart aligning with the animals and the green and the energy around me. Every morning I wake up to powerful energy of the Arenal volcano […]

My new haircut

Haircut. Yesterday at the beginning of one of my live webinar classes, someone said, “Nice new hair” to me. My response was something like, “Thank you! I’m loving my new hair too!” but there’s actually so much more behind the whole hair thing – this is a big deal in my life. Twenty five years […]

Dancing Queen?

On Sunday, my son was “out” all day. Now that he can drive, he frequently leaves and we don’t see him for hours. I’m pretty thankful for the Find iPhone app right now as he’s terrible at telling us where he’s going (as I’m sure all 16 and 17-year old boys are!). So, yesterday he […]

A message from your deceased pet?

I bet, like almost everyone, you want to receive a message from your pet on the Other Side.

As a professional animal communicator for almost twenty years, I’ve been in the unique position to experience animals at all stages of dying – from before the animal is even close to passing over right through to when it’s happening and often after the fact as well.

Goodbye logic, hello flippers?

I’m going to tell you a pretty personal story about learning animal communication – and opening intuition. This is a story about my husband, Kevin. Now, he doesn’t know I’m writing this, but I know he’ll be OK with it – after all, he married me! Kevin is a science guy. He’s a hydro-geologist, he’s […]

Wicked Cool (Superbowl) Tool

The Superbowl is just a week away and because I live in New England, everyone around here is pretty darn excited that the Patriots have made it to this big-deal event. Now, I’m not a football fan, but I know SO many people who couldn’t be more excited about this upcoming game so, I thought […]

Here’s what really matters

It’s the last day of 2017 and I have to say that I’m really, really glad to be through this year. 2017 has been the most challenging year I can remember experiencing as an adult. From some personal things going on with my family (that I haven’t yet totally talked about here but I do […]

Well, Let’s Hear It…

2018! One reason I LOVE the New Year is because so many of us finally take a moment to slow down, become aware, reflect, and move forward! (I wish everyone did this all year!) What do you want to start, stop, do or create in 2018?   Let’s hear it! (PS: I can’t wait to […]

I feel terrible…

Yesterday morning at about 5am, my dog Tuukka climbed on to the bed to greet Kevin and I good morning. This is her normal routine and she hates sleeping with us since we must take up room on the bed with our physical bodies. (She’s really said that to me before!) Anyway, as she was […]
