"Animal Communicator, how do you help?"

I am so pleased that you are asking! That's a great beginning when this concept is totally foreign, or somewhat familiar. Provided is a concrete roadmap. Veterans of integrating an Animal Communicator's help may also be interested if you are new to my service style.

Included in this Journal post is my PDF document that can be downloaded. It contains what you will find further below in list format. I have added it so that it can be on-hand, and additionally if you print it, you can use the paper for when you brainstorm further specific thoughts, creative inspiration, and questions for our session. "Overview of Topics for Your Animal Communication Session with Anne Marie Varrella at Our Charismata."

This Journal Post addresses the query that comes from more of an analytical thinker's perspective, which needs simple, direct, task-and-outcome oriented answers. Therefore, a deep dive into the metaphysics, the radically beneficial nature and existence of serving and participating in this modality (advancing awareness, interbeing, reordering one's perspective of how all of Life is interdependent, considering a non-anthropocentric (non-human-centered) way of relating to all living beings, and broader applications for personal, Spiritual, social, cultural, and environmental growth (or re-growth), is for another time.


"Animal Communicator, how do you help?"

I “get out of the way” and let the pets or animal companions share their help.

I am very present in an Animal Communication session, yet in order for me to facilitate an exchange between you and your pets(1), I must become attuned less to external sensory input (highly distracting otherwise), and attune more to a meditative, mindful, Heart-based communication orientation. This requires quieting the mind, and focusing on the Spiritual senses. (1) For simplicity I will use "pets" and "animals" to refer to what Animal Communicators / Intuitive Interspecies Communicators and Indigenous Wisdom Keepers prefer to identify as "non-human animals;" even "living beings of the earth."

During the process I articulate, with language that humans understand, the communication and expression of the non-human animals; a form of communication which is not visible to the eye. This gives you real-time access to a genuine two-way communication exchange.

With this amazing transmission of information, we can experience the animal's perspective.

That interchange is somewhat reduced when it is attributed only to telepathy. In my experiences, it feels and includes much more, which I admit is difficult to articulate into concise, time-saving language. So, "telepathy," "insight," and "intuitive heart-based communication," are acceptable, although not quite all-encompassing. I am glad to answer any questions to provide a more detailed description.



A Common High Priority for Humans with Pets: “Sourcing the cause of anxiety”

and then implementing what can relieve the anxiety for the peace of mind of all involved.

“My dog is so anxious.”

Behaviors from any type of animals or pets associated with anxiety from the human perspective are one of the primary reasons of seeking professional help from an Animal Communicator. Thankfully, there are endless amounts of sound, applicable resolutions to put into action, which are personalized to each specific case.

My job is to understand the animals' viewpoint and then to work with both of you to help, for example, to resolve areas of concern such as emotional and behavioral issues.

Additionally, what is sourced by your pet and the Animal Communicator is meant to work in harmony, in an integrated way, with your established care team (veterinarian, trainer, etc.).



I really enjoy pointing out to (human) clients how they are already implementing what is “titled” animal communication, encouraging them in the continued application and cultivation of what they know intuitively, and giving them further insight into their capacity.


I have compiled many examples of what an Animal Communicator does to help, and what is most commonly addressed in the sessions that I have helped to provide.

I hope that this compilation, which is available to download in PDF format (above), is clarifying.

EMOTIONAL BEHAVIORAL * Emotions and thoughts conveyed telepathically and translated by me to communicate to you. Essentially, what are their thoughts? * Know your animals' emotional needs, in varying circumstances, and understand how that relates to your coexistence. * Be able to look at things through the animals' eyes. See and include their point of view when making or enforcing boundaries (rules). * Clearly help the animals understand W H Y, you, other humans, and other animals prefer and feel the most comfortable, the most safe with the outlined, explained boundaries / rules. Generally, they have to know the why of it from the human perspective. It is so simple! [Here clients also usually learn a quick practice in real time, if they do not already know, of sending the animal friend a mental, visual image message... because visual images from you (often more than vocalizing, especially loud vocalizing) are a strong communication preference.] * Discover what is behind a worrisome behavior. For example, phobias, inappropriate elimination, aggression or extreme anxiety, excessive pacing, gnawing, among others. * Then, with insight, clear up the cause, or causes behind the identified behaviors to reestablish mutual understanding, and identify the key thoughts and actions for the journey going forward.

RESCUED ANIMAL COMPANIONS * Insight helps with the transition, bonding, and allows you to get a picture of what the animal companion experienced before (if necessary). This assists in how to ease any remaining trauma, and promote healing surrounding previous living conditions, neglect or abandonment.

FAMILY DYNAMICS * Topics you would like to be sure your animal family unit understands. * Feelings and thoughts about the dynamics in the home; new additions, a recent death, etc.

HEALTH AND PHYSICAL * Food preferences and food sensitivities.

* Other sensitivities and related requests. * Insight into the contributors to dis-eases, and possible interventions that show to be the most compatible and promising for the specifics of your animal companion's body and mind. *Not to conflict with your Veterinarian’s advice; I am not a medical doctor.* * Understanding how to ease separation anxiety, and any potential anxiety or related emotional upset about being at the Veterinarian's office.

FULL POTENTIAL! * Discerning the most compatible learning styles, and finding out about related requests to optimize learning. * I Love this! Identifying, or confirming, their unique talents, skills, tailored-to- them abilities, including talents-to-be-fulfilled-wishes (dreams...”Is this possible, please?!”). AN INNATE SENSE OF PURPOSE Often includes a type of job or volunteer position, or how the animal companions would further like to share their skills and abilities in the service of others.

THE MUTUAL WISDOM shared for COMPASSION and LOVE * Requests made by Y O U to your animal family (pets) and the response.

* Specific requests made by the animal companions. * Specifics the animal friend truly enjoys (and sometimes asks for more of). These can be surprising! * Wisdom from the animal companion out of Love to assist you.

END OF LIFE PHASE and SUPPORT * Insight into the 'end of Life' phases of animal companions, and how it is from their perspective. Know if they are ready to pass on and say, 'Goodbye.' Additionally, there is often the communication about: 'Look for these signs from me, after the time has come.' * Understand and confirm what aids in comfort, or easing / transforming pain. Insights into how 'pain' is experienced by animal companions.

* And most possibly any possibility!


R e m e m b e r to bring your questions! I encourage you to be playful, creative, think out of the box, and try not to censor yourself as you are brainstorming your questions for your beloved family! This is truly an atmosphere free of judgment. Your Love and care for your animal family or companions is greatly honored.




I help by grounding my service as an Animal Communicator within the strength of an ethical code of conduct. In particular, I entirely resonate with and draw from the

"Animal Communicators / Interspecies Telepathic Communicators Code of Ethics," authored by Exemplar and Teacher Penelope Smith.

It is so Lovingly and lucidly articulated, and also provides answers to the main question.

By Penelope Smith

"Our motivation is compassion for all beings and a desire to help all species understand each other better, particularly to help restore the lost human ability to freely and directly communicate with other species.

We honor those that come to us for help, not judging, condemning, or invalidating them for their mistakes or misunderstanding but honoring their desire for change and harmony.

We know that to keep this work as pure and harmonious as possible requires that we continually grow spiritually. We realize that telepathic communication can be clouded or overlaid by our own unfulfilled emotions, critical judgments, or lack of love for self and others. We walk in humility, willing to recognize and clear up our own errors in understanding others’ communication (human and non-human alike).

We cultivate knowledge and understanding of the dynamics of human, non-human, and interspecies behavior and relationships, to increase the good results of our work. We get whatever education and/or personal help we need to do our work effectively, with compassion, respect, joy, and harmony.

We seek to draw out the best in everyone and increase understanding toward mutual resolution of problems. We go only where we are asked to help, so that others are receptive and we truly can help. We respect the feelings and ideas of others and work for interspecies understanding, not pitting one side against another but walking with compassion for all. We acknowledge the things that we cannot change and continue where our work can be most effective.

We respect the privacy of people and animal companions we work with, and honor their desire for confidentiality.

While doing our best to help, we allow others their own dignity and help them to help their animal companions. We cultivate understanding and ability in others, rather than dependence on our ability. We offer people ways to be involved in understanding and growth with their fellow beings of other species.

We acknowledge our limitations, seeking help from other professionals as needed. It is not our job to name and treat diseases, and we refer people to veterinarians for diagnosis of physical illness. We may relay animals’ ideas, feelings, pains, symptoms, as they describe them or as we feel or perceive them, and this may be helpful to veterinary health professionals. We may also assist through handling of stresses, counseling, and other gentle healing methods. We let clients decide for themselves how to work with healing their animal companions’ distress, disease, or injury, given all the information available.

The goal of any consultation, lecture, workshop, or interspecies experience is more communication, balance, compassion, understanding, and communion among all beings. We follow our heart, honoring the spirit and life of all beings as One." Penelope Smith
