I work as an animal intuitive, offering insight to pet owners on what emotional issues may be affecting the wellness of their pet and the peace of their home environment. I offer energy sessions with Reiki distantly for ailing pets and have helped in the rehabilitation of wildlife using Reiki energy as well. Stress is a major factor in the loss of rescued wildlife, Reiki can help alleviate that stress and increase the chance for survival. I have given Reiki to orphaned raccoons, sick prairie dogs, an opposum hit by a car, baby squirrels and birds fallen from their nests, as well as done volunteer work at shelters and zoos. I have watched the amazed expression on a veterinarian’s face as I communicated her little dog’s unusual, favorite treat ……..
Animal communication offers a window for pet owners into the emotions causing their pet to behave in a certain way. Opening this window allows for better harmony in the home and better understanding of some rescues and adoptees and the traumatized lives they have previously endured. For grieving pet owners, connecting with a loved one at the bridge is a poignant and comforting experience.
Many clients have written about their experience on my webpage. I love animals and find their energy so fulfilling to connect and communicate with…..it is an energy of love. There is nothing more fulfilling than seeing the relationship of a pet and owner shift to one of understanding, or to have a pet at the Bridge communicate feelings of love and joy to grieving owners.
A testimonial……….this owner lost her dog recently Thank you so much for your reading. The strong father type figure to me is my boyfriends dad who we originally got my dog for but he passed a year after getting him. I remember being …at a seance at Briar Rose in Nutley and you telling me about my boyfriend’s dad coming through and thanking me for taking care of something of his. I couldn’t for the life of me figure that out what his message meant and suddenly my sister who was also there at the seance said out loud “Lisa, you are taking care of his baby. You can’t imagine how much this reading means to me…..Thank you and I hope all is beautiful in your life.

Sample Pet Communication Session and the Owner’s Response
(You will see what can be communicated during a session)
…….Here is what I pick up from Skye…………
I don’t know if Skye was a rescue……but there is a sense of needing to trust again coming from her……caused by something in her past. By any chance, do you know if she is a rescue, if she was found wandering as a stray……she sends me this feeling….of being lost……..not wanting to be free out on her own and not knowing where to go.
With you, I feel she is transforming into a girl who likes to explore ……. she still has memories of whatever this is though, that she is showing to me.
Is there something around you or your home that is causing a disruption now……….she sends me this feeling of something changing around her…..if you are in the midst of something that has upset the daily routine or a big change is coming, Skye already feels whatever this is.
She sends me the emotion of healing……so you obviously have shown her much love and helped her heal.
Also, did Skye ever have puppies…….the energy of this area is disruptive……has she ever had an health issues….or a problem when she was spayed…….for whatever reason, the energy in this area is not as free flowing, more blocked in her overall energy field.
This could be for emotional reasons, if she was ever separated from a litter of babies……..or some physical problem that may come as she ages…..
She sends me the feeling of a home of arguments…..two people very much opposed……if she was rescued, her home was not a harmonious one. I think Skye does not like any upset or show of anger…….she probably goes off by herself if there is any tension now in your home.
Her energy is very positive now……she has emerged from any prior difficulties and has become a strong, girl. I feel an alpha type girl in your home……she has a commanding, leading type energy. She knows when to be strong and knows also when to be submissive……she is very wise with this.
I don’t know her age, but she makes me feel a youthfulness…….she is still “young at heart”……I think she could use a little more patience at times….she may get too impatient with something required of her that takes too much time and effort. But she is very smart and skillful……She always knows how to get her point across to you…she is a very good communicator.
She is also a very spiritual little girl…very intuitive……she pays much attention to the inner needs of those around her……she probably can tell very quickly if something is upsetting you….very empathic.
She has really brought a wealth of love into your life……and you have helped her satisfy her yearning to be loved as well.
I think when you brought her home, she was quite rebellious……but I think this was also much due to the fears and sadness within her. I still don’t think she responds well to discipline though, she responds much better to love.
I feel the suffering she went through has caused her to become even more of a compassionate and wise girl now. Instead of bitterness, I think she is a kind soul who shows compassion and caring to any others in need, both human and furry. You have given her the healing she needed to become the wonderful dog she is.
Unfortunately, I pick up a sense that she understands suffering and pain…….and this has caused her to be compassionate and empathic to others, especially in times when they are in pain.
From our reading, I really feel Skye had to have been a rescue……if not, then this overwhelming empathic sense of hers picks up any other pain from rescues you bring into your home.
The Owner’s Response
Skye was a stray at least 2 years before we captured her. She hung around the same area for at least 2 years. I think she was abandoned when she was very young and never knew what it was like to be touched by humans. Or she was physically abused when young and then abandoned. She has changed a lot over the years but it has been baby steps. There is a new dog here now and I also need to take Skye to the vet. That may be the disruption she is feeling. She hasn’t been to the vet since she was spay. And then we had to give her a shot to get her into a crate in order to take her to the vet. She has an injury on her leg that we tryed to treat with antibiotics and antiinflamatories, but they didn’t work. So I have to take her in for x-rays. We know that Skye had 2 litters of puppies. She had no problem with being spay. She does not like quik movements or loud noises. Inside the house she is usually submissive to everyone but outside she is brazen and strong. I think she is about 6 years old. I think she trusts me about as much as she can trust anyone. She also knows I love her very much. I have never experienced a dog like her. It’s almost as if she has a wildness about her that can never be tamed.
I will tell you that last night she seemed more at ease and happier than usual.
Thank you so much for the reading.

Thank you so much for your communication with my dear foster dog, Radley. It helped so much to understand what was going on with him and why. Once I understood, I was able to give him the kind of reassurance and trust he needed. H…e is doing great now, getting along so well with all my girls, and seems so happy. His tail wags most of the time! Your help was a lifesaver for both of us!
With much love & heartfelt gratitude,
Nancy & Radley

I had my beloved Tigger reading of him crossing. I could not catch my breath while I was reading it. Many things were SAID THAT NO ONE would know. And it came up during the reading. It was excellent and I plan on getting a reading again in the future. Awesome!
Hi Shirl, I just wanted to thank you for doing the Reiki session on my 5 y/o lab, Beemer. After his diagnosis of congestive heart failure and dilated cardiomyopathy three weeks ago, I was so upset when the vets told me he had less than a …year to live. The first thing you told me was that no mortal can predict how long a life will last. That statement in itself picked my spirits up. The second thing that you did was make him a beautiful gemstone healing charm for his collar, which he proudly wears in the attached photo. (As you can see, he has grayed considerably in the last few months, making him appear to be much older than his 5 years.)I had never heard of Reiki until becoming friends with Doreen a couple of years ago, but she had such success with it on her dog, Riley, that when this came up with Beemer, I knew I wanted to try it. Since I live on the west coast, we decided to do the Reiki session at 5am our time, when we knew that Beemer would be resting peacefully. He was sleeping on his bed, right next to mine, but of course I was awake with anticipation of his session. During the time it was scheduled, he slept calmly without the rapid respirations that he has had so often since the onset of his illness. I lay quietly near him, with my arm over the side of the bed touching him. At one point, I felt a definite surge of energy through my arm and into my body, and thought at the time “Shirl must be sending me a little help too”. When Beemer woke from his sleep, he was noticeably happy and energetic, bouncing around the house like he used to. Since the session, his respirations have been lower at night than they have since his diagnosis, and he once again feels like chasing sticks and playing with his brothers. I am so thankful for your gift being able to help him and so many others like him that our vets often just “write off”, having done all that they can. Thank you again!! We’ll be in touch again soon.”

“I wanted to say how grateful I am for Shirl communicating with our sweet boy Ashe. It was such a comfort to our family, and allowed us to move on in a positive way, because this is exactly what Ashe wanted. We never did anything like this before, but we are so happy that we did. I’m not sure that Shirl will ever know the comfort in her words.” ~ Kristin in Maine
“You did a reading for me a few years ago for Zak and Harley, I have never forgotten how it helped to know that although Zak was frightened and didn’t want to leave me he found peace and was renewed and that Harley was also at peace and waiting for me to come home
Thank you Shirl
