Looking for Something
Tag Archives: vegan
This is my bunny Bean. She is 9 years old. I asked her what she wants to say to you all and she replied,
“People think bunnies don’t need a lot of attention but we enjoy time with our people. I like having focused attention on me.
I like my room being mommies yoga room.
I like a lot of vegetables. Right now fennel is my favorite. I also like blueberries as snacks.”
This is Fleur. She is a 2 year old cat that is available for adoption. We will be talking to her on Pet Psychic Radio Today! Fleur was rescued by Sarah Lillard of Kitten Rescue LA Website https://new.livestream.com/FosterKittenCuddleRoom Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/SarahsKittenCuddleRoom PET PSYCHIC RADIO LIVE THURSDAYS at 12 pm PST. call in line 917-889-2693 Listen Live athttp://www.blogtalkradio.com/thepetpsychic Learn more athttp://thepetpsychic.com/pet-psychic-radio Post Pictures athttps://www.facebook.com/PetPsychicRadio The radio show for animals and their people. Animals Wanted – Dead or Alive. Ask or tell your animal anything.
Confidence Is Key
I believe that in order for an animal to be confident they need to have awareness of their bodies. I wonder, do my animals agree with this? Here I ask them.
Makia, my white cat, says, “I definitely think that one who is confident feels good in their body. I was much braver when I was younger and could climb. Though now I understand my body’s limitations and that makes me feel confident too. If I didn’t understand how my body worked I would hurt myself.”
Serafina, my gray cat, says, “I used to be insecure and fat. Now I am slim and confident. I make sure I am conscious of when I turn around and when I blink my eyes or lick. This has made me a more thoughtful cat. The more I am in control of my body, the better sense I make of the world.”
Stormy, my Aussie, says, “I think it is important to know how your body works, send love to the parts that are in pain, and be thankful for the parts of your body that work well. If you want to live happily to old age this is important.”
Bean, my bunny, says, “It is important to set boundaries on what you want others to do with your body. I don’t want to be picked up, and since my person respects that, I have become more confident around all people. It is okay to trust your feelings about your body.”
Luca, my young poodle, says, “I am aware of my body when I roll on the grass with another dog. It feels good. When I play rough I think, ‘This is fun,’ but my mom (person) says I need to play gently, and I don’t know what gentle is, so I am learning. Bodies feel different depending who you are. I didn’t know that. I thought all bodies felt the same. I have a body and so does everyone. Feelings in bodies are different. I am still learning to understand that.”
Seamora, my blue and gold parrot, says, “I am learning the rhythms of my body, when it feels anxious and when it feels calm. I am learning to be aware of how my body feels around different people, in different situations, and at different times of the day. This is good because then my behavior starts to make sense to myself.”
Jubilee, my appaloosa sport horse, says, “I have a big body and I can control others with my body. Sometimes I don’t want to control others but I try to anyway. Sometimes my body moves without me thinking, and that makes me sad because I want to think first. I want to be a smart horse that is polite. I am learning to think before my body moves. It’s hard. But I like learning.”
What to Do with a Broken Heart
Clues from Animalia
Serafina (cat) says, “Stretch, look in the mirror, and tell yourself you are beautiful. Get out in nature and enjoy the sun.”
Stormy (Aussie dog) says, “Make sure you eat good food and take care of your body. Breathe and care of yourself. Do the things you love the most.”
Bean (bunny) says, “Lie in the dirt and feel the ground. Look at the stars. Believe that the future will be okay.”
Luca (poodle) says, “I always think the best thing to do is to make sure that you are in a safe place, and then tell God you need help.”
Makia (cat) says, “I like to smell fresh catnip. Also it is nice to give a flower to the Buddha statue and to do something nice for someone else. That way you fill you heart up with helpfulness to others.”
Seamora (blue and gold parrot) says, “It is fun to get busy trying to crack a nut and also do climbing exercises around my cage. People can also do tasks that are difficult and move their bodies around obstacles. This will create confidence and make your heart remember you are love.”
Jubilee (appaloosa sport horse) says, “Chew on something and move your legs. That way, you won’t think about the sadness in your heart. Drink a lot of water and talk to a friend. Think about all the things you have to be grateful for, and remember that bad memories go away if you replace them with good ones.”
Ask for Help
Animals Do, and So Can You
Often when I am speaking with animals they talk about spirits on the other side that are around their people. In my experience, these spirits are mostly deceased loved ones, ancestors, or angelic creatures. Rarely are they negative entities. The animals tell us there are times when, in order to receive help and guidance from these beings, we must ask for it. We must consciously reach out for help.
Here I ask my animals, “How do we ask for help? Why do we have to ask for help? How do we know who to ask?’
Serafina, my gray cat, says, “If you feel trouble inside your chest and you can’t make a decision, that is a good time to ask. There are a lot of beings around each individual wanting a job to do, but they need to be directed. I know this because I see energetic movement around you when you ask for help.”
Stormy, my Aussie Dog: “If you don’t ask for help and try to control the situation yourself , it might get worse. You just need to have faith that someone hears you and wants to help you. The more you are kind to people and animals, the more advanced helpers you have on the other side. So it is important to be kind to other beings.
Bean, my black bunny: “It is important to trust your situation in someone else’s energetic space. Like, one time I decided I never wanted to be picked up again, and I asked an angel to tell my person, and now my person doesn’t pick me up anymore. I feel safer. I was too scared to tell my person [that’s me, Laura] myself because I didn’t want to disappoint her. She likes my fur against her face. Now she bends down to me to hug me.”
Seamora, my blue and gold parrot: “There are so many spirits in our house that sometimes I have to scream, because they are crowding the living room. One time there was an elephant in here, and I thought, ‘You are beautiful and big.’ All of the spirit animals would help my mom because they want the word about animals to get out. So if my mom asked, “All animals, please help me get the word out,” they would. Sometimes it’s surprising who is around.”
Jubilee, my appaloosa horse: “There are a lot of Native American spirits here and they want my mom to tie a hawk-feather in my mane. They say my life is important. They tell me to trust my mom, but sometimes I get scared because she is not a horse, nor is she here all the time. I was confused, but they have been telling me about having a mission in life, and they told me I have a good mission. I am excited for my life. Now I ask them to keep me company when I am lonely, and then I have a peace about me I didn’t have before. I like having spirits around.”
Makia, my cat: “I died and my mom screamed for help, and a powerful healer came in spirit and healed me. I am alive now. I know it is important to ask for help. Do you know you can request help for others and others will be helped too? It is important to believe this, because if you do, your life will be easier. You also have to say ‘Thank you’ a lot. When you are grateful, those spirits get a burst of refreshing energy. It reminds me of when I lived where the monarch butterflies migrated every year. If you ever sat in a field of thousands of monarchs you would believe in heaven, being loved, and gratitude.”
Animals & Animal Lovers Have Lost An Amazing Woman

What Do They Know About It?
Animals often bring me to wonder with their level of consciousness. They talk about their basic needs, and then surprise me with gems of wise insight. They often notice what makes us happy and what makes uncomfortable, frequently giving their people advice to be happy.
In honor of Valentines Day, I ask my animals their views on love.
Serafina, gray cat, says, “Love is listening to someone even though you do not feel like it. Love is being open to being wrong so that you can learn and grow with someone.”
Luca, medium poodle, says, “Love is finding friends that you enjoy playing with and love is learning when you are hurting someone and stopping it.”
Makia, white cat, says, “Love is being comfortable. Love is making sure others are comfortable. Love is compassion. Love is taking care of yourself and eating good food that will make you healthy.”
Bean, black bunny, says, “Love is helping someone through their fear. Love is being patient and kind even when you are in a hurry. Love is noticing when someone else is having a problem and taking a moment to ask if they are okay.”
Stormy, Aussie dog, says, “Love comes from the center of your heart. It is calm and caring. Love is feeling safe and comfortable in someone’s presence. Love is a sense of trust. Love is magical, because it can heal old wounds.”
Seamora, blue and gold macaw, says, “Love is welcoming someone into your home even though you weren’t expecting them. Love is feeling safe. Love is speaking quietly and calmly.”
Jubilee, young horse, says, “Love is being excited to see someone. Love is talking. Love is communicating so that you understand each other. Love is being grateful for what you have.”
Watch Your Mind
Saturday, February 9, 2013
People receive telepathic communication from animals in about four different ways.
1. Images. Images can flash into your mind’s eye. It can be one picture or it can look like a film. For instance, if a dog is telling you they like string cheese, you will see string cheese in your mind’s eye.
2. Feelings. Sensitive people very often pick up the feelings of others in their own bodies without even realizing it. If the person next to them is feeling anxious, they too may become anxious. Animals can send these feelings to us to help us understand where they have pain. All of a sudden, your stomach or your shoulder may hurt when you are near an animal. It may be their pain reflecting in your body.
3. A sense of knowing. Some people just know what their animal is thinking and feeling. They can’t explain it. They just know.
4. Words. Some animal communicators hear words in their mind when an animal is talking to them. This is the main way that I receive messages from animals. Somehow my mind translates the images in my mind, feelings in my body, and a sense of knowing very quickly into words. It sounds as if I am whispering to myself except it has a subtly different feeling to it. It doesn’t “feel” like it is coming from me.
The average animal owner can receive messages telepathically from animal companions. It just takes the knowledge to recognize that a thought, image, or feeling in your body was not yours and came from your pet. Often it is so clear there is no denying it. But more often than not it is very subtle.
A person must do a lot of self-exploration in order to be extremely accurate. You must study your mind and body and constantly be asking yourself, “Where did that come from?” It is like tuning a radio dial. Once you know the station your animals are on, it becomes a bit easier, but even for an experienced communicator the lines can get blurry. You must be dedicated to exploring your thoughts. The thoughts in your head can come from many sources. Below are a few.
1. It can come from the animal.
2. It can come from your own associations or assumptions. For instance, your dog hides when there is thunder outside so you think say your dog is telling you they are scared of the loud noises. This may be true, but it could also be the electricity in the air or other reasons.
3. It can come from you reading your animal’s body language, rather than the animal telling you.
4. It can come from a higher power or a guide.
5. For people who study the occult, or dabble in other psychic realms: It can be a spirit tricking you.
So how do you start knowing which is which? Dissect your mind. Pay attention. Always ask yourself where that thought, image, or feeling came from – not just when you are with the animal but all the time.
When you are standing in line at the grocery store, what are you thinking, feeling, and seeing in your mind’s eye?
You will start to notice things. Like on your drive to dinner, you were feeling really good and energetic but when you got to the dinner table and sat next to your friend’s husband you all of sudden felt depressed and lethargic. Perhaps that is not your feeling but his.
Or maybe, when you are falling asleep at night, all of sudden you see an image of your dog’s water bowl raised. Where did that come from? Perhaps your dog wants you to raise his water. Did you have a feeling in your body when you saw that image? Does his head, neck, or back hurt when he bends his neck down to drink?
You can also free-write. I love this exercise. I have been doing this with my animals since I was a little girl. You can ask your animal a question and then for six minutes just write. Don’t judge what you are writing or correct spelling, just write, and at the end of the six minutes, read your writing. In there will be thoughts from both you and your animal. Which is which? When my childhood dog died, I wrote a letter to my dog and then I wrote a letter from him to me. I know I channeled him in that writing. It can be a very powerful experience.
Meditation and yoga are also wonderful ways to free your restrictions and start knowing your mind.
The most important thing is to have fun with it. There are times when watching your mind is exhilarating and extraordinary as you watch your consciousness grow. Other times, it is frustrating, such as when you find again and again the same negative thoughts, or when you realize that an event that happened 30 years ago is still bringing up unhappy feelings. But the more you acknowledge your mental processes, and start focusing on what you want to learn, the more the “negative stuff” is weeded out.
Your animals will help you with this. Ask them to send you images, thoughts, and feelings. Sometimes you have to be clear to your animal about how you want them to send their thoughts.
Makia, my 17-year-old cat, is extremely tough. She has a very high pain tolerance. This year, she had an infection in her jaw but I did not know it. I could tell that she was not feeling well, so I asked her, “Makia, how are you feeling.”
“I am fine.” She responded.
I knew she was not fine, so I asked again.
“Mom, I am fine really. I am just tired.”
But I could see it. She was off and her eyes looked like she was in pain. I asked her, “Makia, send the feeling in your body to my body.”
She did, and it hit me hard. My jaw hurt so bad that I didn’t think I could open it. I felt dizzy, feverish, and nauseous. Makia was in the car to the vet in minutes and operated on the same day.
Why didn’t she just tell me? She doesn’t want to worry me, she doesn’t want to go to the vet’s, and her pain tolerance is high.
Experiment with your animals. Ask them to send in different ways. Know that they do not have to be looking at you. They can multitask just like us. Tell your animal to send you the image, feeling, or thoughts over and over again. Tell them to be really clear.
If you don’t get anything back, know that it is possible that you maybe trying too hard. Its okay: Your mind will save the information you receive and play it again when you are more relaxed. It may pop up when you are in the shower, meditating, or falling asleep. Pay attention when it does.
Have fun with it. Now go watch your thoughts and talk to the animals.

Getting Things Done
They Advise According to Their Own Lights
Monday, January 28, 2013
I asked Makia, my white cat, “What I should write about today?”
She replied, “I have seen you get distracted from your projects and I think that we (our animal family) have advice for you and other people on how to stay on track.”
She went on to say, “I think that whenever you work on a project that is dear to you, you should turn off your phone and your email. You should let creativity come with out interference.”
Serafina, my gray cat, says, “I think that you should work on your projects at the same time each day. That way, if there are any spirits or angels that help you, they know how to plan their schedule. Also, if you do this, your mind and body will be conditioned to start creating at that time. All animals are creatures of habit.”
Bean, my black bunny, says, “I think it is important to eat your greens before you start your project so that your body and mind have natural energy. I do this before I make a new door in my cardboard house.”
Luca, cream-colored medium poodle, says, “I think that for moments before you start your project you should sit, meditate, and organize your thoughts so that when you start the projects all the other stuff is out of your head.”
Stormy, my black-bicolored Aussie, says, “I believe it is important to love your project, otherwise it will never get done. Love it with all that you have inside of you and then your project will turn out better than you expected.”
Seamore, my blue and gold macaw, says, “My advice is to be brave and be confident that you can do a project. It is also to allow the sun to warm you during the day, so that you feel safe in your space. Space is very important. Find a safe space to do your project.”
Farewell to Eggs
Clearer, Quicker, More Awake
Friday, January 11, 2013
It has been seven weeks since I have moved from vegetarian to vegan and gluten/ sugar free. It has been surprisingly easy. I thought I would miss eggs and a little bit of goat cheese but I have had no cravings for such things. I also thought that if I started to truly clean my system that my psychic abilities would overwhelm me.
I had this idea because a clean system in the past meant that visions arose with no control and the painful experiences of others would lock themselves in my body, making me cranky and exhausted. Sleep was never mine. It was not only the dysfunctional stories of people in my life that were bothering me, it was also the realization of my faults.
I have done a lot of work on myself in the last 10 years. I have dissected my thinking, my emotional responses, my ideas of the past and the traumatic events in my life, and I have learned to live and work with my shortcomings. I have learned to create boundaries in my life and in my psychic world. I no longer need to numb myself with bread and sugar in order to take a break from my sensitivities.
I found it hard to purchase non-leather boots. I was worried that they would not hold up. I’ll keep you posted.
I canceled my Arrowhead water account because one day they made a mistake and delivered Nestle water instead; when I Googled Nestle I found out that they own Arrowhead and that they do unnecessary animal testing on dogs, cats, rabbits, mice, gerbils, and other animals. I am sparing you what Nestle does to these animals because many of your hearts will burn with pain and disgust at the shocking truth of how our animals are tortured for tea. I believe cleaning my system and becoming a vegan put me in a flow of spiritual awareness that allowed a divine power to switch my water delivery. Something greater than me wants me to know the truth.
Since I have become a vegan, and gluten/sugar free, I cry more for animals’ and people’s suffering but it does not debilitate me. I tear up and then I let it go. My taste for food is changing. I crave foods for how I healthy and energetic I feel after a meal. My energy level has increased. I find myself being more productive. I think faster. I have a better memory. I am clearer and quicker when talking to the animals. My intuition is more evident. When I meditate, my visions are clearer, as if I have washed the window of my view. I am all-around happier. I feel awake.
What I find the most remarkable is that my aspirations for my future are becoming more attainable. I have more of a drive to set goals and work towards them when before I was too tired to add something else to my day.
Since I turned 40 last month, I have been looking over the decades of my life and realizing how much I have changed. I find today I am happier with who I am and where I am in life. I am moving towards my future self with excitement and clear vision rather than desperations of wanting to change who I am now. I am excited for this journey of change. I am excited for my future self.
I know you place tremendous value on your time so I’ll be brief. I was in the Army for six year and served a tour of duty over seas in Iraq as a medic. Ever since returning home I have been thinking a lot about different things, and lately I was thinking about going vegan, and I was wondering what your stance on eating meat is? I understand if you’re too busy to answer in depth or would prefer not to discuss the topic given that we’ve had no interactions in the past. However, if you have any pearls of wisdom or specific thoughts, they would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance and I truly hope we can connect.
Wow, Thank you for your service to our country. And for asking me on my stance on eating meat. I truly believe it is a personal preference. I am a vegetarian. I do eat eggs and cheese. I have been vegetarian since I was around 10 years old. I am now 37. I must confess that I have two large dogs (a wolf dog and an Australian Shepherd) of which I feed them 90 lbs of meat a month. So I am not one to truly talk about the ethics behind being a vegetarian. Though I can offer some thoughts that may be an issue for someone in your situation. I believe that everything we put into our bodies has it’s own energy. I believe that the way that the animals are raised and killed are held inside the animal products that we digest. I can imagine that in your tour of duty you have witnessed an extraordinary amount of suffering and death. Perhaps even to the point of your system being overwhelmed by it all. It may be possible that you are now so sensitive to the energy of suffering that you can literally no longer “ingest” it. Meaning that meat and what it energetically holds may be too much for you. Perhaps you just need to cleanse yourself (through diet) for a period of time or eat only meat that is humanely raised and killed. Or perhaps becoming a full time vegan is the right life path for your beliefs and your body. If I were you I would start with Dr. Schultz’s 30-day vegan raw cleanse. I do it once a year to clean out my system and to give my mind more clarity and focus. It is a great start to any new endeavor.
I wish you the best.
Many blessings, Laura
