Reflections and Transitions



November for me is a time of reflection with life changes and transitions. My personal journey includes retiring from my day job, moving to the desert (actually Rancho Mirage) and reflecting on how happy I am in this beautiful community.  I am excited to continue working with you and your pets via telephone and Zoom.  Working from anywhere in the world is possible when I tune in telepathically – there are no miles or languages as barriers. Yes, even if I don’t speak the language of my human client, their pet and I are clearly communicating and if the human client has an interpreter, we’re good to go. 

I recently spoke with a 16-year-old cat, Luna, who had recently crossed over.  She had a beautiful message from the other side to her mom.

Hi Luna – I understand you are now on the other side, how are you doing?

Oh, I’m so glad mom contacted you.  I wanted to tell her all my thoughts when it first happened, but I knew she couldn’t hear me like you do.

I’m glad she did too – so what would you like to tell your mom? 

Please tell mom how much I love her and not to feel bad about how she found me.  I was not suffering as she perceives it – it was more frustrating knowing I couldn’t do anything for myself.  I wanted to go in my sleep but it just didn’t happen that way.  Many times I tried, but I kept waking up.  I was told it would happen when it was supposed to happen.  Mom has a new life now, she is ready to blossom into her own woman, much more sure of herself than ever before.  She has the strength and courage to do more than she ever thought she could.  She is now encouraged to be her whole self, to express herself, to be in the moment with her decisions.  I am very proud of her.  I am happy she has a man in her life, a new partner to share in her growth.  When she met him and introduced me, I knew this was the beginning for her and it was my time to step away.  These are transitions in our lives that we bring in new energy and let go of the older energy.  Not good versus bad – not at all but recognizing what is a good match in this phase of our life.  She needs to let go of concerns on what she could or should have done differently for me or her own decisions for herself.  Take each day as a new choice, a new adventure, a new way to look at life.  It was my time to release my body and nobody could have prevented that release. She was the best mom, companion, caretaker and snuggler I could have ever asked for.  I love her very much – to the moon and back.  We will always be connected by our love for each other – that will always stay in our heart and soul. Please let her know she can talk to me anytime – she is not holding me back as I can energetically be in a multitude of places at once.


This message can be an encouragement for all of us – read it again to see what resonates with you.

Animal Communication Tips

 


I love working with clients that are new to the idea of animal communication.  Sometimes the response is they just want to know if they are “happy”.  I believe our pets are more than one-dimensional; they have wants and needs, fears and joy, they have preferences and desires.  Are they “happy”?  All they really want is love, food, and a safe place to put their head at night.  Are you giving them this? Then yes, of course, they are going to tell me they are “happy”.

When speaking with the animals it is helpful if you have specific questions. Is your pet a rescue? What was their life like before they came to you?  Sometimes this brings answers to curious questions and sometimes it can be very eye-opening to understand why they do certain things.  One client had a dog who wouldn’t join her and her husband on their bed at night.  The closest he would come to that was laying on the chair near the bed.  I asked their dog why and he said he was reprimanded so badly from his previous owner that he was afraid of that happening again.  I assured him that would never happen again with this family – they welcome him to join them.  He was hesitant but was assured he was safe in his new forever home.

Has anything changed in their surroundings in the past few months?  Are you now going back to your office, no longer working from home?  Many people adopted pets during the pandemic, only to realize their pet has never seen them leave their house for extended periods of time.  As a rescue, the fear of abandonment is real.  Where are you going?  How long are you going to be gone?  Why can’t I go with you?  Consider their feelings and questions in their minds. Just like as if you were leaving your child for the day – they want to know that you are coming back, and when you are coming back. 

Just some ideas to prompt questions for you and how I can best help you and your pet.  I welcome your questions and so do your pets.

Take Care of Yourself


Your Pets Rely on You -
Take Care of Yourself

Ernie is an orange tabby rescue cat that is approximately 5 or 6 years old. His mom wanted to know why he '"yells", and meows so loudly all of the time.

Ernie, why are you meowing so much?
I can’t hear like I used to and I keep trying to see if it changes back but it just doesn’t. I am so frustrated, so I keep trying and trying to hear better. 

Im sorry Ernie, how does it sound to you now? 
Well, when you and I talk it’s perfect because I’m not using my ears to hear you. But when I am using my ears, it sounds muffled. It’s not clear at all. 

I’ll check with mom to see if your ears are blocked in some way or possibly an infection of some kind. Either way it might be easier on mom if you didn’t continue the meowing so much - it can get quite annoying.

Yeah, I didn’t think about how loud it must be to her, I just hear it muffled. I’ll stop doing that so much.

Only when you need something from mom, OK? 
Oh, OK I can do that.

Why do you follow mom and stare at her? 
I’m afraid she is going to fall. 
[My client was due for hip surgery and wasn’t using her cane in the house. In further discussion Ernie was concerned about his dad falling too as he had a recent foot injury and didn’t always wear his prescribed boot.]

Is there something you would like from mom? 
I’d like her to relax more. I want her to take care of herself as well as she does for the clients that she sees. She is such a kind and loving person. I love her so much and want her to be with me for a long time.

Thank you, Ernie, that is a great message, many of us need to hear as a reminder to take care of ourselves first. Then we are better for our clients and loved ones. Bye for now.
 Bye.

Be Good To Yourself




This is a reading for the mom of a 15-year-old dog who had passed. She was still grieving and wondering about how he was doing months later.

Here’s his message to mom:

I know mom didn’t want me to go but my body was ready. We had such a good life together. She was so caring to me. I love her so much – even though my body isn’t there, the love for her is always there. I have lots of friends here – new ones that came at the same time I did. We all had our loving homes and like to tell each other our stories. Sometimes I check in on mom – especially when she is sad and missing me. She may feel like I am right there with her – and I am; energetically. She may sense my presence and she needs to know it really is me. Sometimes I’ll lay on the bed with her.

Please let mom know I left my body when I was supposed to – no questions about that. She did everything right so please do not feel any guilt about what was done or not done – it was all done the way it was supposed to be. I am happy and energetically healthy and one day our energies will meet again. Not in the physical body, but after that. Please allow yourself to move on and share your love with another pet if you choose to. There is no jealousy, you are not replacing me – it is just as it is supposed to be. Be as good to yourself as you were to me. Focus on your happiness and not those around you. You come first – others will take care of themselves.”

Words of Wisdom from a Poodle

Words of Wisdom from a Poodle
 

My clients are so amazing, both the humans and the furry ones.  The wisdom and guidance from the messages I receive, many documented in my various books, give such incredible guidance to read and re-read at different times of my life.  With my new chapter, moving to another home after 18 years, is very exciting and brings a bit of anxiety in the waiting for the actual day of the move.  My client asked me to speak with her dog. Fudge, who had crossed over a few months back, as she missed him so and wanted some words of wisdom.  I felt a very close bond with him and was happy to speak with him as well.  Here's the message from Fudge:

Hi Fudge - do you have a message for your mom?

Please tell mom the love she has been looking for is coming. It is within herself and allowing the outside energies to emerge with her gentleness. She has learned to feel the energies of those not in her best interest and embrace those who she can learn from and grow with. Some growth with others may be temporary, but have a profound impact. She has grown so much during her time of grief and learned more about herself - by herself – even if others are around her. Listen to that child within and embrace, skip and play for that child within is ready to emerge again in a powerful growth of joy. Take the proverbial jumprope and jump for your heart's content to glow and grow to embrace your life to come. 

Thank you Fudge – I will read these words for my own guidance as well, you are so wise.

Yes, my dear, they are also a reflection for your new beginning as well. 

Thank you, Fudge - until the next time we speak - bless you.

Bobcat's Goodbye

 

I recently received this email from my client and I am sharing her story with permission.

"You did a reading on my cat Bobcat last spring, I think around May 2020.  Something that he told you was about his passing, which was that he didn’t want to be kept alive with treatments and he wanted to go as naturally as possible.  This didn’t make sense to me at the time as he seemed far off from crossing over, and that was not the reason why I had the reading done.  However…on January 15th 2021, my Bobcat passed from advanced renal failure from diabetes.  I felt so guilty about his seemingly premature passing.  I felt it was my fault because I had to stop treating him with insulin shots a few months prior.  Bobcat had started to fight me with each injection, which was negatively impacting our bond, and about the same time, I had become very sick and learned I had cancer.  I couldn’t risk being scratched or bit by him so for both reasons, I stopped the insulin injections.  A couple weeks after he passed, I recalled the reading and found the transcript to refresh my memory.  His message made so much sense and caused me to let go of my guilt.  He went as he requested…especially at the end.  He passed three days after the diagnosis, and during that time, I kept him comfortable, gave him tons of love, and the night before I called the euthanasia service, I knew he was ready.  I had the honor of feeling his spirit leave his sick body; I felt his joy and excitement about being set free. I wrote about it in the following blog entry if you’d like to read it: Bobcat's Goodbye

All that so say, thank you for what you do!  And a good lesson in trusting in the reading, even if the message doesn’t initially seem to fit.

Warm regards, 

Pamela Knudsen

A Nice Place to Be


A Nice Place to Be


Thinking about this month’s newsletter message from the animals I realized I was really at a blur; but this blur was one of calm.

I am at a point where I have so many wonderful things coming up for me and my cats seem to be picking up on the same calm. The little furniture I have left in my living room has been a central point for the two cats and I. They will be around me and sit with me while watching TV or looking at my laptop. The cat toys are around me and sometimes they’ll play, but mainly they’re at a calm place too. They’re not running around crazy with all the boxes - at least not all the time. Once in a while, they use the boxes as stepping stones to look from high above.

The calmer I am, the calmer my two female cats Ollie and Sage are and it’s really become quite a nice place to be.
