The Hawk’s Eye: Equine-imity

In the occasional Hawk’s Eye posts, I share resources that I think will be interesting and helpful for my readers. In this post I’m delighted to feature a new book by Beverley Kane, MD:

Equine-imity: Stress Reduction and Emotional Self-Regulation in the Company of Horses

I’ve just finished reading this beautiful book, and wanted to share it with you. It’s moving, easy to read, full of practical and interesting practices and information, written with a light touch and humor about the ways in which horses can teach us to be more resilient, responsive, embodied, and awake.


The Science of Intuitive Interspecies Communication

cat-and-womanIt’s an exciting time to be working in the field of Intuitive Interspecies Communication.

Fifteen years ago, when I first entered this field professionally, it was still considered “fringe”, a little “woo-woo”, and something that was interesting, but for the most part, definitely not worthy of serious scientific and academic study.

Coming from a background in both the arts and academia, I knew that bridging the divide between the academic, scientific, and intellectual worlds and the intuitive, telepathic, and spiritual worlds would not be easy.

What I did not know was how much of this gap would be bridged within my lifetime.


Films for Interspecies Communicators and Sensitive Souls

Like all of us these days, I’ve been watching more films online than I did pre-pandemic. As an empath and sensitive person, I often have a hard time finding films that I enjoy and that truly speak to my soul. I can’t tolerate and don’t enjoy loud, violent, or frightening films…even ones that many other people find enjoyable and interesting.

So when I find films that are beautiful, gentle, heart-full, and also promote a deep awareness and understanding of animals, the Earth, and spiritual awareness, I get excited. Here are few of my favorites…I may add to this list as time goes on!


How Do Animals Understand Time?

One of the questions I’m often asked is, “Do animals understand time?” And, if so, how?

In my years as an animal communicator, I have learned that many animals do have a sense and an understanding of time, but it’s often different from our human understanding and awareness.


How I Keep My Focus on Joy, Connection, and the Matters of Daily Life


riverWhat a time this is. Like many of you who I’ve been hearing from, I am affected emotionally, physically, and energetically by all that is happening in my country and in our world.

Sometimes, it’s just plain exhausting. Overwhelming. Worrying. Frightening. Upsetting. Angering. Heartbreaking.

We know that we’re in a great time of transition, of birthing a new way of being, living, and loving in our world that is long overdue. And, it’s grueling. Let’s just be honest about that.

When I feel myself losing my center, my “hawk’s eye vision,” my grounding and anchoring, I know I need to spend some extended time outdoors, in places with strong, supportive, nourishing energy. One of my favorite places is at the Rio Grande River not far from my home, in a beautiful canyon filled with ancient sites, petroglyphs, and peace.


The 2020 Graduates of the Professional Animal Communication Certification Program

Certified Animal Communication Practitioner BadgeI have some wonderful news to share with you this week: I am so pleased to announce the 2020 graduates of the Professional Animal Communication Certification Program!

This is not an easy program, and I know that these people would be the first to tell you that. Each of them has invested a minimum of 2 years into this training. They have given great amounts of their time, energy, financial resources, hearts, and love to this work.


Reiki for Ourselves, Our Animals, and Our World

reiki-preceptsI’ll say it plainly: I don’t know how I would have made it through 2020 without Reiki.

And, though we celebrate the beginning of a new year with new intentions, fresh energy, a sense of possibility, evolution, and transmutation, let’s be clear:  we are in an immensely challenging time.

Reiki is an energetic and spiritual tool that I use every single day for myself, for my animal family, with my animal and human clients; and in my prayers and intentions for our world.

I often say that I think that Reiki should be something that belongs in everyone’s “life-kit”, along with first aid supplies, jumper cables, and for some of us, chocolate. 🙂


Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! As 2020 comes to a close, and we turn our attention, and intentions, toward 2021, I thought I’d share a few highlights of news stories that touched my heart and filled me with hope and joy in this past year:

Researchers “discover” a “new” whale species (the whales aren’t new, but human awareness of them is…what a beautiful connection these whales made with these people!) December, 2020 –


Holiday Blessings and A Gift For You

What a time this has been! As we come to the end of 2020, I am aware that we are in a deep collective processing of all of the events of this year in our inner and outer worlds. We’re just past the powerful Solstice with the big Jupiter-Saturn conjunction, and in this holiday season with so many different cultural and spiritual celebrations, we are turning toward lengthening days here in the northern hemisphere and shortening days in the southern as we move our awareness and intentions toward 2021.


Raven’s Teaching: Fly Differently

telepathic animal communication A few weeks ago, I went out for a morning walk, and received a teaching from a beautful raven that I understood immediately was to be shared with other humans.

Forest fires were burning here in northern New Mexico and all over the western US; smoke from the fires was hanging heavy in the air. I couldn’t see my beloved mountains; a brown haze covered everything.

And, that morning, there was a really, really strong wind…strong enough that I considered not going outside.
