Tune In to Your Pet

July 30, 2010 at 1:00 pm

I believe we all have psychic ability, and we either “turn it off,” or we never get the opportunity to develop it. It’s like any other skill or talent – if you practice, you can get better at it. It’s the same thing with learning to “hear” your pet.

Different animals “think” in different ways, so don’t look for them to actually “say” words. Some animals think in black and white, some in color, some in emotional temperatures (lizards, iguanas, snakes), some are very psychologically emotional (cats, rabbits). You will be able to translate their messages into our language as your skills get stronger. Dogs are the easiest to begin with, yet cats can be easier for those who have a stronger affinity with them (or a fear of dogs). Read More

10 Things We Can Learn From Animals

June 27, 2010 at 5:00 am

Love and companionship can be found anywhere, and that includes the wild kingdom. While humans may think that we have already written the book on how to foster successful love/parent/friend relationships, there are still a few tricks that animals can teach us… make that ten tricks!

Holding hands encourages love

Male and female African elephants gently caress and intertwine their trunks as a sign of affection and love for each other. Studies show that the act of holding hands in people releases the hormone oxytocin, which encourages heath, love, security, and happiness.

Catcalls only work in the animal kingdom

While the male Mandarin Duck may find the occasional success by barking and whistling at an attractive female, most construction workers report a much different experience. Studies show that the catcall arouses negative feelings in not only the female subject, but also the surrounding witnesses. If you really want to make a bad impression on just about everybody in hearing distance, this is one way to do it! Read More

Psychic Octopus’ Latest Prediction

June 25, 2010 at 5:30 am

We recently reported on a psychic octopus named Paul who has been correctly predicting the results of the World Cup.

The Seawater Seer correctly predicted today’s German loss to Spain (1-0), despite his status as a naturalized German citizen.

Psychics: How is octopus precognition possible?

Psychic Octopus Predicts World Cup Wins

June 23, 2010 at 12:49 pm

German fans have turned to an unorthodox source for their World Cup predictions: a fortune-telling octopus named Paul.

The octopus, who resides in the Sea Life aquarium in Oberhausen, Germany, currently holds a 100% success rate in predicting the outcome of Germany’s matches in the 2010 World Cup. In order to consult the octopus oracle, two glass boxes containing mussels are lowered into Paul’s tank – each containing the flag of the competing teams. Whichever box he opens first is considered his prediction for the winning team. (He predicts a German win against Ghana today.) (UPDATE: He was right!) Read More

Pet Peeves: Out of Control Shih Tzu

June 16, 2010 at 2:25 pm

Riean from Lynwood, Illinois asks:

I have a nineteen-month-old Shih Tzu that has been potty trained since she was about four months old. She has recently been refusing to go potty outside, and does it in the house. She also tears the house apart when she is left alone, and she ignores us when we call her name. Why is she suddenly behaving so badly? Is she not happy with us?

Readers, psychics – what do you think? What should Riean do?

Understanding Dairy Farm Abuse

May 28, 2010 at 11:11 am

Recent news about abuse of cows at a federally-subsidized slaughterhouse has disturbed many. People are looking for answers – how could this happen? What will the karmic results be for the perpetrators? Will there be justice? Bethany from Kent, Ohio echoes the sentiments of many when she writes:

I was recently sickened and disgusted by a story about an Ohio farm where secret footage was made of the workers abusing cows.

Is there a spirit guide that comforts and helps animals that are victims of abuse?

What happens to these abusers in their next life?  Are they made to pay for their crimes?

I am saddened beyond belief right now and I cry thinking about these poor helpless animals.  I contribute to my local animal shelter, I have taken in stray cats and I feed some feral cats in my neighborhood (and even trapped and had them neutered). I want to do more though.  Do you have any suggestions? Read More

’30 Rock’ Peacock Reincarnation

April 30, 2010 at 5:29 pm

Last night’s episode of ’30 Rock’ has me howling for more!

Alec Baldwin‘s character Jack recently lost his mentor, NBC President Don Geiss. An attorney notifies Jack that Geiss bequeathed a pet peacock named Argus to him — in his will. (Watch the clip!)

What ensues is sheer hilarity. The peacock, perched in Jack’s cushy NBC office, raises its wings and a feather flies into Tina Fey‘s character’s mouth.

Jack says, “He’s chosen you as his mate.”  Many scenes later, cut to Jack drinking a glass of scotch, believing that Don Geiss’ spirit lives in the peacock. Argus is simply a means to an end.

Jack unleashes his grief and a pent up goodbye to his mentor and friend, as the little fellow sips scotch from a pint-sized serving bowl.  Despite the outrageous notion that a peacock can be a reincarnated soul of man, it helps Jack work out his feelings.

We here at CP have many opinions on the matter of animal soulmates, reincarnation, and pet heaven!

Fishing For the Answer

April 21, 2010 at 2:55 pm

I live in the Pacific Northwest on the coast and I like to crab and fish in my free time. I’m known on the docks as the “little lady who out crabs and fishes everyone” … I’m not thrilled about the ‘little lady’ part but it’s not meant to be disrespectful so I just smile.

How have I become so good at this? Well, it’s simple, they choose me. I walk to the Medicine Wheel and ask if there are any crab or fish that hear my voice and choose to be food for my family and loved ones. I also make sure they know that I’m aware they are offering themselves up in a “good way” and that I’m humble and grateful that they heard my voice. I am very aware that they are giving up their life to me for food and that I will not waste or treat their lives lightly.

It is the most profound thing when I see this happen … it actually reaffirms the connection with All. Read More
