Labryinth in my front yard
Animal Spirit Communication – May 2010
I’ve been busy with radio and TV interviews, long distance reiki sessions and animal communication. I hope I have time to add another labryinth this year.
Thank you to the Kid Carson Show on 94.5 The Beat, in Vancouver BC for the opportunity to share animal communication with their listeners. Special congratulations to Megan who was the first listener to contact me and was the winner of an animal communication session. Soon to be posted on the video blog.
- Is your cat having some litter box issues? I am pleased and proud to present fellow animal communicator Nedda Wittels. M.S., M.A., Nedda is an internationally known Animal Communicator, Shamballa Master, Light Worker, and Teacher. She has written this very insightful, and helpful article that has some great suggestions I hadn’t seen before. Our senior cats have some special requirements that we can easily provide for if we know what to do. Nedda has written several helpful articles that will be highlighted here.
“Thank you for sending healing energy to Gracie. She was so much more alert and content after your sessions with her. I really appreciated having feedback on how she was feeling and what her needs were. It was so very helpful to have Susan communicate with Gracie, who was recovering from two consecutive surgeries. There is no doubt that Susan’s Reiki was helpful, and her connection with Gracie was right on and invaluable .J. CA
I built a labryinth last spring by mowing the pattern in my front field. It was fun to build and maintain and was amazing to walk. Labyrinths have been a part of healing for years and you can usually find one at a local church or hospital. Animals like them too and enjoy the energy and release that can be felt by walking in the concentric patterns. More about horses and labryinths later, it can be an incredible training aid that can be fun to walk as well.
Your Animal Companion Wants You To Know …
When I communicate with animals there are a few messages that come up fairly consistently and one of them is that they like to have lots of clear, fresh water in a clean bowl or container. More is always better…they’ll definitely love this!

I could easily relate to how our animals friends can choose us in their life and come to us in the most incredible ways. My long time companion Beau, combined with my sister and kids were unrelenting in their quest for him to join our family. That is quite an amazing animal story as well but that is another post.

The other day I was having a rather lively discussion with a great friend and it seemed like we were getting nowhere about a touchy topic. Actually we were talking about money, it’s worth and how to respect it. I had been watching a hummingbird right outside our window gently put his beak into a flower then move on to another. He would go away and come back, repeating the process. I was really enjoying this distraction and I shared this with my friend and he watched mesmerized as well. Just then he looks away and momemts later asks me ” do hummingbirds have legs?”
You guessed it, I felt it coming and I could not stop it. I laughed, I cried, my nose ran and my stomach hurt and I could not stop laughing. The look on his face was priceless as he tried to imagine if he’d ever seen their legs before. “I only see them fly” he said.
Do hummingbirds have legs? Have you ever seen them? There is a lot of information that our minds just fill in for us. My friend is a pilot and he had imagined the little hummingbird coming in for a landing like a floatplane, carefully positioning itself so it was a perfect landing. It had to be perfect, after all there still was the question about do hummingbirds really have legs?
There is a lot of fascinating information out there about the animals that we love that we do not know. In our busy hectic lives who has time to google little known facts about ? The truth is that the more we know the more we understand. Chief Dan George left us with these words of wisdom…
If you talk to the animals they will talk with you and you will know each other.
If you do not talk to them you will not know them, and what you do not know you will fear.
What one fears one destroys. Chief Dan George
yes, hummingbirds do have legs, although they are not strong enough to walk with they can perch with them
hummingbirds are territorial and have been know to bravely defend their flower bush from predators- even hawks
a hummingbird will feed about 50 – 60 times a day from a single bush
they have hollow bones and are warm blooded
they can fly up, down, sideways, forward, backwards and they can hover
they can beat their wings up to 80 times a second which creates a humming noise, hence their name
they love nectar and will drink sugar water from a feeder of any color, including red
Do you know any other interesting facts about hummingbirds?
I was playing in the sprinkler with my granddaughter in the backyard when I stepped on a wasp. It definately surprised both of us and I got stung on my foot. Wow, I forgot how much that stung! I couldn’t sleep my foot throbbed so bad so I got up and googled antidote for wasp sting, and there was quite a few entries with similar comments
I don't think the wasp who stung me looked this mean, we were just surprised to meet this way!
Remember – Bee stings use a baking soda paste
Wasp stings use vinegar wrap – soaked paper towel is ok
I think this would help your animal friend too if they were stung. I had a pony once who stepped on a wasp’s nest. What a mess, she was stung all over her face and body and I had over 22 wasp stings on mine. That was a long time ago but I wish I used vinegar then.
According to several sources an injury on your foot means you should be aware of the direction you are going in life. Something to think about.
Do you have any remedies that have offered relief for bee or wasp stings?
We just bought a beautiful blue male Betta fish the other day and we named him Sunny. I thought he would be a great addition to our animal family and we could learn a little about Betta’s. Here are a few highlights about Betta’s.
Male Betta Fish are beautiful and relaxing to look at. Here is Sunny our new family addition.
Betta fish are sometimes called Siamese Fighting Fish but the more peaceful name of Betta seems to be the more popular term for these beautiful fish.
Betta fish originally lived in the shallow rice patties and bodies of water in Asia. They are quite territorial and can be very aggresive so one per pond was enough. They will puff or fluff out when they see another male and may fight to the death. For this reason it is best to only keep one in a habitat at a time.
Things to know about a Betta
- Betta’s are easy to care for and can provide a lot of enjoyment
- male Betta’s are beautiful with full draping fins and bright colours
- they like their special pellets that are developed for them, but only about 2-4 a feeding, twice a day, they can get very sick if they are overfed
- your Betta will enjoy fresh freeze dried bloodworms as a special treat
- Betta’s will look for you and will get excited, almost dancing, thinking it may be dinner time
- Betta’s breathe from the surface and will come up for their air. They have adapted from the droughts in the rice fields to be surface breathers
- they like clean clear water between 73-80 F
- remember to clean your Betta’s home once a week and pretreat the water with special Betta water conditioner you can buy at the pet store
- Betta’s do not need a large aquarium and are quite happy in a container 1-3 gallons and do not need gravel or an air pump
- if taken care of properly Betta’s can live for several years and I’ve seen reports of up to 5 yrs.
- Betta’s are peaceful to watch and can reduce your stress level, they know how to relax
- do you have any tips to add about Betta care?
We are enjoying Sunny and are learning a little more about him. His color has changed quite a bit since we got him. When he arrived he was in a little cup with blue dye to enhance his colour. We changed this right away when we put him in his new home and his color went paler but then has come back to a rich beautiful blue.
Do you have any Betta fish stories to share?
