Talking to the Animals

There are some fascinating people on this earth. If we never venture out, we never meet them. My spiritual exploration has put me in touch with many unique and talented people. One of them is Cathy Easterbrook, who is now a good friend. When I met Cathy over 10 years ago, I felt an instant connection with her. As we became better acquainted, I learned that Cathy is a clear clairvoyant, who specializes in talking to animals telepathically. She also is a talented architectural designer and maintains a full-time design business. She generally does animal communication sessions for private clients from all over the United States by telephone in the evening. Cathy has taught many animal communication workshops, one of which I attended. She says that we all can learn to telepathically communicate with animals. During a two-day workshop, I was able to do so as were all of the other 10 students in the class. Since animal communication is not my primary interest, I send my friends to Cathy or one of her students who is now a professional animal communicator. While I

can communicate with my pets, if I want specific information, I call a professional. Here, in her own words, is Cathy’s story

about how she came to be an animal communicator:

clairvoyant and telepathic abilities became more public.

When it became known that I could communicate telepathically with animals, people began to call me for help. Then I took the big step

of offering a weekend workshop in animal communications so others could learn. The majority of my private animal sessions involve helping owners change an animal’s habit, checking on a pet’s health or becoming involved with the animal’s death. I always documented the conversations so that I could discuss them with the owner. the notes from this story I’d like to share: suggestion of her veterinarian. So I have

Thank you!
After I shared the whole conversation with Mrs. H., she told me

that she was an elderly woman who was crippled and that getting around was difficult. Feeding Marcus was a major chore for her and she had

tripped over him a few times recently. Then she told me that all his

life she told Marcus that if he ever “went” first she wanted him to wait for her. We can see that having a conversation with Marcus helped Mrs. H. make plans and go through a difficult experience with more ease. Helping people and their animals is one of the reasons I continue to hold animal communications and teach it as well. But the gift to me

is having the conversations with the animals and what I learn from them. Animals are truly teachers. Animals are naturally peaceful, harmonious and loving. to please those they love and they love without condition. nature is to love only those who love us. They need Human

Cathy’s abilities have progressed to the place where she now holds a three-way conversation with animals and their owners without the need to take notes. In that way she and the animal

can hear the questions. Cathy communicates the question to the

9 pet and relays to the owner what has been said. Then there can be follow-up questions or a response from the owner. Recently Cathy mentioned that she received a request for a session from a person whose house had been burgled. As Cathy

spoke with the four cats that lived in the house, they gave a description of the person who had entered their house with a key and took the computer, a television and other equipment. From

her pets’ description, the owner knew that the culprit was a friend of her cat sitter, who had a key to the house. The next problem was how to explain to the police that “my cat knows who did it.” If you want to learn more about animal communication, there are books on the subject and classes are taught in various places around the country. A good place to begin is with Kinship with All Life, by J. Allen Boone. The cover of this book says, “Simple, challenging, real-life experiences showing how animals communicate with each other and with people who understand them.” The copyright on this book is 1954, so animal communication isn’t new. It’s been around a long time and is now getting the attention it deserves. If you have any interest at all in animal communication, treat yourself and your pet to a session. You will be amazed at what you will learn from your four-legged friend. You can contact Cathy Easterbrook to inquire

10 about her workshops or a private session by calling 828-698-8290.
