Welcome to My Blog

All Joined Up!

I was giving a talk to a local horse and riders club the other week, when the topic of interspecies help came up. “Interspecies help” is a posh way of defining how one species can help another.  The instance that this brought to mind for me was a four-way connection....

Questions & Answers

I was asked a very thought provoking question this morning.  The question was," Is the cat I am fostering, happy with me?" The person who asked this is looking after a 16-year-old cat, on a temporary basis, until he goes home again.  I know that everything and more is...

Signs and Symbols

I went for a walk on Sunday, through the fields, by the stream and up to my brothers' old primary school, now being remodeled into housing.  Things change, things move on. The current primary school still has its green fields, there are nesting boxes, fabulous views...

Making a Splash

The other week I spent some time with a lovely Labrador, at the Ashbourne Canine Hydrotherapy Centre. Ozzie, the black lab had been having mobility problems and his family were trying out a range of approaches to help him.  I think there's a benefit in this because...

Changes for the Better

During the twelve years that I have been healing, talking and listening to animals, I have made many human friends too.  It is a very pleasant and unexpected bonus. Last week, I was speaking to someone I had become friendly with through her elderly dog, Ebony, whom I...

Love is all Around…

Valentine's Day is almost here and you can't escape hearts and flowers and all things romantic and who'd want to?  But love is all around, not just on one day but every day as I think this story shows. One Friday a friend asked if I knew of anyone who would like a...

One Soul, Many Hearts

When I read the phrase "Only connect" in "Howard's End", by E.M. Forster, something clicked into place in me.  I have always believed that everything is connected, that we are all one. Animals, children, men, women, mountains, slugs, flowers, rocks, we share this...

Happy New Year!

As we welcome this New Year, 2014, I imagine many of us are quite glad to be rid of the old year.  It was very tough for so many people and for so many animals too. One feature of a new year is the urge to clean out, clear out and make way for something new, something...

Mirror, Mirror…

I have a very special mirror in my home - Not one that I use to check I have my clothes on in the right order - No this particular mirror is a cat. Charlie-cat is my energy mirror.  He reflects back to me just how my behaviour and mood is affecting him.  Charlie-cat...

Let’s Stop Pretending

Let's stop pretending that transporting animals over long distances, in high-sided lorries to market and then to slaughterhouse, is acceptable at any level. Two vehicles ahead of me at the traffic lights was a sheep transporter of not two, not three but four tiers....

Only Connect

Twice in the last few days, I have looked up into the sky just as the buzzards appeared.  Although they have been increasingly frequent highflying visitors in recent years, each of these sightings was special. The first time there were four buzzards, apparently...

Living the Dream

After a long, hot summer here in the UK, one that has been quite tumultuous for many, we can now enjoy the fruits of our harvest. In my garden there are more blackberries and damsons than ever before and this abundance is matched by the wealth of creative energies,...

Divine Purrfection

Two of my darling cats, sisters Pansy and Pumpkin, have both passed away this year, within six months of each other.  Because my home is up for sale, I buried each of them in large, terracotta planters, just near the back door, where they are still part of the comings...

After the Sun

There is something so comforting about the rain, which comes after heat. Its very nature is cleansing, refreshing and yes, balancing. At the moment, after a night of intermittent rain, a relief in itself after so many days of intense heat, a thunderstorm is playing...

Joy! Joy! Joy!

A few days ago, I was teaching my Opening YOUR Heart To Animals workshop and emphasising how important it is to hold a positive picture in your mind when giving healing. I then went on to explain about the creative power or energy in every thought, word and action...

Reunited

In February on a cold Monday afternoon, my beloved soul cat sister, Pansy collapsed and died within the space of 45 minutes.  The trauma of her passing, the feeling of helplessness, loss and inadequacy was overwhelming. This was so even though I know, trust and...
