A telepathic "knowing" was enough.
Many years ago, my horse friend, Echo, was staying at a barn about 10 minutes away from where I lived.
It was a hot summer Sunday, and while visiting her that morning, I had given her some deworming medicine, a brand I had never used before.
The day was lovely, and I fell asleep outside in a comfortable chair under some trees.
Suddenly, I popped up, wide awake. "Something is wrong at the barn," I thought to myself.
I just knew I had to go there immediately.
Upon arriving, I found Echo in her stall looking very uncomfortable. She wasn't eating her hay and if horses could vomit, she probably would have, but horse's aren't designed that way.
I stayed with her for several hours, doing some gentle energy work with her. Finally she relaxed and began eating. I knew then that she would be fine.
Because I received her message telepathically and responded immediately, I had probably saved her from having colic on a day when no one else would have been around for many hours to help her.
Since horses can die from colic, I considered us both very "lucky." It was a few years later that I finally realized that I was truly communicating telepathically with Echo.
What would we do without telepathic communication with animals?
Those of us who have been communicating telepathically since childhood may have convinced ourselves as we grew up that we were imagining these conversations.
Some of us buried our abilities, hid them away, and forgot how to use them.
Others, like myself, kept using them, but then would quickly compartmentalize them or label them as intuition or some bizzare coincidence.
Today, I can no longer even imagine not being able to communicate telepathically with my own animals. It is a part of my daily life and I've come to take it for granted.
Of course, I also communicate telepathically for clients as well. I find it very satisfying to hear (or know or feel or sense or intuit) what an animal is thinking about, or feeling, or wanting their person to understand.
You, too, can expand your telepathic abilities with animals.
I encourage you to make it your intention to keep practicing. The old adage, "use it or lose it" really does apply to this as to any skill.
Here are few tips on expanding your abilities:
- Just start having conversations every day about something. They don't have to be long conversations. You just have to do it until it becomes automatic - a habit.
- Tell your animals you want to practice speaking telepathically with them. One or more of them will probably volunteer to help you. Just ask them!
- Always acknowledge what an animal says, and if s/he makes a request, do your best to grant it and then follow through.
- BE PLAYFUL! If you're too serious, you may block out the funny little quips and "smart ass" comments some animals love to make.
- Expand your telepathic horizons. When you're outside and you see a wild animal or even if you see one through a window, take a moment to say, "Hello" and notice the response. If you get one, identify yourself. If not, that's OK, too.
The more you speak
telepathically with animals,
the more your abilities will expand.
As you've seen, even a "knowing" can make a vital difference, especially if you pay attention to it, follow through, and give yourself acknowledgment for doing so.

A Case Study.
Why was this magnificent male
urinating outside the litter box?
When Renie Morris contacted me on November 30, 2016, about her beloved cat, Viggo, she was, to use her own words, "in desperation."
Although she had worked with me for a few sessions in 2015 to change Viggo's inappropriate urination behavior, the situation with Viggo had deteriorated over time.
THE "DESPERATE" SITUATION
Viggo is an elegant black male cat. He was found by Renie and her husband, Ross, at a veterinary office where his family had left him to be adopted. He was around 2 years old. At that time, Viggo used the litter box consistently.
About a year later, Aidan, a lovely male, orange tiger kitten, came to live with them. Aidan and Viggo integrated well. It wasn't until Aidan was about a year old that Viggo began urinating outside the litter box.
Over the following 3 years, Viggo had episodes when he would urinate inappropriately and then return to using the litter box. His preferred spots were on a queen-sized bed, a day bed, and finally, a brand new sofa. The sofa was a kind of "last straw" for Renie and Ross.
Viggo had not had any UTI (urinary tract infections), so further investigation was needed. The frequency of his inappropriate urination had increased over time, and was now intolerable for his other family members.
Viggo's relationship with Aidan deteriorated. Aidan likes things clean and neat, and was expressing his displeasure at finding urine around the house by attacking Viggo. Renie's husband, Ross, was losing patience with the whole situation and was asking that Viggo be caged. This is where things were when Renie contacted me on November 30, 2016
Renie was open to trying a variety of approaches to resolve the situation because of her strong heart-bond with Viggo. I was willing to creatively brainstorm and ask for higher guidance for assistance.
Ultimately, a combination of approaches applied over time and overlapping each other have brought about significant changes.
Viggo was already receiving homeopathic remedies chosen by Dr. Loops, a veterinarian trained in that approach. According to Renie, Dr. Loops felt that Viggo was compulsive in his behaviors. While the homeopathic remedies helped Viggo in many ways, the chronic peeing outside the litter box continued, and Dr. Loops could not promise that homeopathy alone would resolve the issue.
Although I had spoken to Viggo in 2015, we began in December, 2016, with Animal Communication. Viggo needed to understand how desperate his family was to help him. He needed to commit to wanting help.
Viggo did understand his humans' unhappiness, but didn't feel that he could stop himself from peeing on the sofa that Renie and Ross had just purchased. During the months that followed, I continued to work with Viggo and Renie.
Aidan had started attacking Viggo when the inappropriate urination become chronic. One of the first things I did was to negotiate, as much as possible, a peaceful settlement between the two cats. To support this, I suggested flower essences for both the boys, as each needed different ones.
Viggo is extremely sensitive to how others are feeling, so I suggested to Renie that calming the energy of the house might be helpful. Misting the house with Rescue Remedy once a day after she and her husband return home from work might make a difference.
We also discussed other things she and Ross could do to keep the energies at home more peaceful, such as clearing their own energies when returning home from work.
In addition, Viggo was given flower essences for developing clearer and stronger emotional boundaries.
THE EMOTION CODE™¹
By December, 2015, Viggo's inappropriate peeing behavior had not significantly changed, although his overall attitude towards life was better.
At the time I was training to become a Certified Emotion Code™ Practitioner². I explained to Renie how the system worked and suggested that clearing trapped emotions and removing Viggo's heart wall might help change his behavior. Both Renie and Viggo agreed to try it.
"PHANTOM LIMB SYNDROME" IN DECLAWED PAWS
In my experience as a professional Animal Communicator, I have found that some declawed cats experience phantom limb pain, just as a some humans do after losing a part of their extremities.
Viggo had told me that his paws hurt. A cat with painful paws may find certain types of cat litter uncomfortable. I decided to check with the Emotion Code™ to see if there were emotional blocks in Viggo's paws that might be contributing to his discomfort.
Sure enough, he had emotions in both forefeet that had been declawed. By releasing all the emotions trapped there, we eliminated Viggo's phantom limb discomfort.
TAKING DOWN VIGGO's "HEART WALL"
In over 20 years of working as a professional Animal Communicator, I have found that many animals who have been in rescue situations have put up protective walls around their hearts. These are actual walls around their hearts that were created to prevent the physical/emotional heart from breaking.
Heart Walls are a form of protection, but can also become a barrier to giving and receiving love. When we are unable to let love in, we often develop behaviors that get us attention, even if the attention is negative. That's what a compulsive behavior does, i.e., it's an inappropriate way to ask for attention and love.
The first step was to take down Viggo's heart wall, which was 2 inches thick.
After only 2 Emotion Code™ sessions, Viggo's Heart Wall was completely gone. However, he needed a month to integrate this change.
To help him feel protected, I installed an energy shield that would help him keep out uncomfortable feelings that belonged to other people. Renie agreed to remind him each day to make sure his shield is activated.
ADDING A SECOND LITTER BOX
Over many years of having cats myself and working with clients' cats, I've learned that when you have more than 1 cat living indoors, you often need more than 1 litter box. The typical rule for cats who live entirely inside is
# of litter boxes = # number of cats + 1 (one)
In other words, for 2 cats, you need 3 boxes.
Sometimes you can get away with 2 cats sharing one box, but if you have a cat who is urinating inappropriately, having at least 1 box per cat in 2 different locations may make it possible for each cat to have his or her own private spot. For some cats, privacy is essential.
So Renie got a second box. Renie showed the box to Viggo and Aidan, and encouraged Viggo to use it. Within a few days things began to shift. What surprised both Renie and me was that Aidan began using the new box, while Viggo began using the old box more regularly to urinate. Of course, as long as Viggo was using one of the boxes, Renie and Ross were happier.
ELIMINATING COMPULSIVE BEHAVIORS
With Viggo's heart wall gone and Viggo feeling safe and more love, I was then able to release the energy of his compulsive urination behavior. All living beings need attention, and psychology has demonstrated that negative attention is better than no attention at all.
In Viggo's case, he was getting plenty of attention from Renie and Ross, but the heart wall had kept much of it at a distance. With his heart wall gone, it was no longer necessary for Viggo to seek negative attention.
With the energy of the compulsive need gone, Viggo could consciously make some new choices.
"DON'T EXPECT THINGS TO CHANGE QUICKLY OR IN A STRAIGHT LINE"
As I worked with Viggo and Renie over the weeks and months, each step we took, each technique used, and each aspect healed contributed to helping Viggo shift into a new way of living. No one thing that was done would have been enough to resolve the situation.
With each step, Viggo would change in some way. He might become more playful, or more affectionate, or more relaxed. He might use the litter box more frequently, but then go back to using inappropriate locations.
There is no magic pill or incantation that will resolve inappropriate urination, especially when the behavior has been going on for a long time. It takes commitment, creativity, and the application of a variety of healing methods to move things along in the desired direction.
AND FINALLY ... OR AT LEAST FOR NOW ...
Viggo's story demonstrates that the road to success may have many ups and downs, twists and turns, and even the illusion of detours before inappropriate urination behavior can be fully resolved.
From my perspective, it's clear that no single approach was enough to completely change Viggo's behavior.
It took a lot of creative thinking and experimentation on everyone's part to come up with the approaches that were taken.
It took a lot of willingness on Renie's part to experiment with different approaches.
Renie's love for Viggo propelled her on, and her determination and love for him were key factors in bringing things to a better place.
Once you accept that there isn't going to be a "quick fix", you are more open to creating the real solution that will enable a cat to have a happy, loving life.
On February 17, 2017, Renie wrote to me,
A week has passed and it's been quite uneventful. Viggo has been using the bedroom litter box every couple of days and in between goes in the bathroom one. Still not going in the wrong places. He had his [homeopathic] remedy today and we continue to tell him to keep his shields up. He is acting very outgoing and loving and he and Aidan interact a lot.
Thanks again. I'm a lot more optimistic now.
In my mind, Viggo is still a "work in progress."
Only time will tell how this situation will ultimately work out. For now, the important thing is that Viggo has made a great deal of improvement in his letter box usage, and everyone is optimistic that he will continue to do better.

I love structured water
it's extending Violet's life.
Violet has been in stage 2 renal failure since the fall of 2014. She is now 17 years old and doing amazingly well. Here's how I take care of her.
- She eats a raw food diet, which means that all the water in the cells of that food is already structured.
- I add structured water to the raw meat because when you cut or grind meat, some of the naturally structured water from within the cells is lost. When I add some structured water back, the meat readily absorbs it. This makes it easier for Violet to get more water while eating.
- To prepare the veggies, I soak them in structured water before pureeing them.
-- This changes the water in the cells of the veggies to structured water.
-- Water that has gone through a Structured Water device by Natural Action Technologies automatically neutralizes all toxins vibrationally that might be in the veggies.
- All the water that Violet drinks is also structured.
Kidneys have a much easier time cleansing the blood when all the water in the blood passing through them is structured.
Structured water has a lower surface tension, so that makes it easier for cells to
- Take in nutrients.
- Expel waste and toxins.
Structured water makes it easier for the kidneys to do their job of cleansing the blood. When kidneys are struggling or feeling weak, it's good to make their life easier.
Structured water also helps makes all the cells in the body healthier because cells stay healthy when they aren't clogged with waste products and when they receive all the nutrients they need to function correctly.
When Violet was diagnosed with renal failure, she was already on a raw food diet and drinking structured water. I just added some electrolytes to her diet every day to make sure she was getting lots of trace minerals.
It's two years later, and Violet's condition is this:
- She has gained back the weight she lost when her kidneys first became imbalanced.
- She has become more active and more playful since then, too.
- Her eyes are bright and when you look at her, she's radiant - she positively glows!
- At age 17, she started bouncing around the house again, and running (yes, I did say running) up the stairs from time to time. Yesterday, she jumped into the cat tree, which she hasn't done in years.
CATS AND WATER
Cats in renal failure need to drink more water because additional water helps cleanse their bodies of waste products.
Cats won't drink water if they don't like the taste or the smell. I know of cats who won't drink enough water because they can smell and taste the chlorine. A structured water device reduces or eliminates this problem.
Structured water tastes better than any other water available. My cats all love this water.
NEDDA: "Violet, what do you think about the water?"
VIOLET: "I don't think about it, I just drink it. It tastes good. Actually, I prefer to drink it from your glass, but you get all huffy about that. Cats share!"
NEDDA: "It's not healthy for humans and cats to share a glass."
VIOLET: "Really? It's never hurt me any."
WHERE DO I GET STRUCTURED WATER?
I just open any tap, and out comes structured water.
I have a "whole house" structured water device from The Wellness Enterprise.
HOW CAN YOU HAVE STRUCTURED WATER?
Not ready for a "whole house" device?
You can get structured water devices for under the sink, for the shower, and even a portable.
