Ep. 34 Emotionally Challenging Pets

34 emotionally challenging pets

This was a tough one for me to talk about:  what happens when you feel your pet is too much?  What do you do when you’re over your head or at the end of your rope with a pet, particularly a dog?

Our little animal family has faced some new challenges: Happy has been attacking Sunshine as though he wants to kill her.  He locks in on her, and it’s gotten exponentially worse since Sunshine’s started taking medication for her hypothyroidism.  It has changed her smell, and Happy’s prey drive is nearly irresistible.

We talk about the *most* difficult dog situations, the challenges, judgment and even shame of “failure.”

How to cope when you feel you have limited choices with emotionally challenging pets.

Ep.33 Pet Reincarnation!

33 pet reincarnation

Here we go again!

We’re talking about Pet and Animal Reincarnation – dogs reincarnating along genetic lines or within human families!  Cats alternating “human companion” lives with feral lives!  Do souls stick to reincarnating within the same species?

Your pets’ past lives, their purpose and plans!  AND:

Ep. 32 – Talk to your pets!

32 talk to your pets!

This episode I recorded nearly two weeks ago, but thanks to my own silliness in fiddling with the wireless modem, I managed to screw up my internet connection.

I blame Mercury.

Anyway, it’s all uploaded and ready for a listen!  I’ve answered a few questions I received over the past few months on facebook about talking with your pets and how to know when you’re succeeding.  How can you tell if your pet “gets” the message?

I hope you enjoy it!

Ep 31. Spiritual Health and Illness

31 spiritual health and illness

This episode is my hilarious crack at Podcasting while Laundering.  I thought it was *such* a great idea to podcast in my car while I waited for my laundry to process – aaaaaaand it ended up in a few stops and starts as washer malfunctions and background band saws played their part in the production.

But, I completed the episode!  Hurray!  Brooke, Caitlyn and Stacey all tweeted at me in response to Episode 30, the podcast on the Spiritual Nature of Mental Illness, and David, my Vancouver friend actually came all the way over to Tofino to have a discussion with me in person!  I am feeling the love you guys, thank you so much!

The spiritual nature of physical and mental illness is a topic I’ve been wrestling with for years, and I just adore the sharing I received from you fabulous friends.  Thank you so much and Enjoy!

Ep. 30 Sunshine Talks about the Vet

30

 

We’re back!  Another episode of the Joyful Telepathy Podcast!!

Sunshine and I have a little conversation about her experience at the vet yesterday.  I talk about my impression of the vet, how we caught Sunshine’s hyperthyroidism relatively early, and we have some questions for YOU GUYS on what you think about mental illness?  Does mental illness have spiritual implications, or is it purely a physical ailment?  Do you have experiences you’d like to share?

Email your thoughts / story to:  feedback@joyfultelepathy.com

We’ll discuss this in a future episode of the Joyful Telepathy Podcast!

Ep. 29 Your Energy Cycle

29. your energy cycle

Hey everyone, I’m back!  I thought I’d re-introduce the podcast after nearly a month off with an episode about energy and how I experience and cope with cyclical ups and downs in my energy level.

If you go back and look at the month overview of the blog over the years, you’ll see a pattern of posting in bursts, and then posting less frequently for a few weeks or even months.  This is just how it goes with me, and I’m sure this is how it goes with some of you too. 

Some of us do not have a steady supply of energy – some people have cyclical ups and downs.  In a world where everything is scheduled, in a culture where consistency is expected – even demanded, how do you cope as a person with cyclical energy patterns?

How do you make the most of the uptime?  How do you manage your limited energy resources and capabilities during a downswing?  How do you get past feelings of failure or inadequacy during a downswing?  How do you ride the wave of new energy and avoid burnout in the future?

So I thought I’d talk about that – what a cyclical energy pattern may look like, the troubles it can cause and ways to make it easier.

I hope you enjoy it.

Oh and keep your eyes peeled – at the end of January, I’ll do a special on Pet Readings as a fundraiser for Sunshine’s Dental work.  I’m going to put the planning for that on the front burner so hopefully in the next week and a half, I’ll launch all the details. 

HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!!!!

Ep. 28 Surviving Super-Empathy!

28. Surviving Super-Empathy

I recorded this one while at the beach, so there is a LOT of interesting sound texture in there, and you can also hear how happy I am to be outside in the sunshine.

This has got to be one of my favourite episodes so far – one of the big blocks people have about developing telepathically and intuitively is “What if I can’t handle the sad things in the animal kingdom / the world if I open up?”  Some people feel like they just can’t handle that kind of sensitivity.

Well I’ll tell you how *I* deal with it, and I promise you I am about as bleeding-heart of a tree-hugger as you’ll ever meet!

 

Ep. 27 Can ANYONE learn to be a medium??

27. can anyone learn to be a medium

 

This is a good episode for anyone who likes to hear me get fired up.  We go on a ranty tangent about psychics and mediums dissin’ each other (why can’t we all just get along?!)
Then we delve into the controversial idea of whether mediumship is something that *can* be taught?
The books I referred to are:
We branch out a bit from the Ecosystem of Pain post
Noel, this one is for you!  You are not alone, Noel, and I do my best to help with some psychic protection POV’s and techniques.
Your comments and questions are welcome!  Happy Tuesday, y’all.

Ep 25. Predicting the FUTURE-R-R-R!

25 future

Episode 25 y’all!  Thank you for listening!!!

“Tim from Iowa” sends us his astute questions about predicting the future: does knowing (or thinking you know) something about the future affect how everything turns out?

Did my accurate yet horrible tarot reading on myself in fact influence how challenging a year that turned out to be?
What about what we can do to affect our own future?  We discuss wicca, mantras, prayer and “intention” – how and why does that work, anyway?
The book referenced in this episode is:  Healing Mantras by Thomas Ashley-Frarrand

 

And I know, *I know* you have been waiting for the follow up to Inner Demons:  I’ve written it… and decided to re-write it.  One has to be very careful when talking about literal demons.  It’s gonna be good though, trust me.

Meanwhile, behind the scenes I’ve been working on making the GIFT CERTIFICATES work this year!  It looks like it’s going to – and you know what else?  REPORT CARDS are coming back!!!  Whoops!  That was supposed to be a secret.
Stay tuned, we just have to figure out how to make it all jive with the new scheduling system.
Love you guys!  And thank you everyone who’s been helping me with suggestions for my back pain on facebook.  The lovely Candis (as in Crystal Candis) has been sending me some kick-ass reiki!

 

Ep 24. Fleas, Angels Calling, Precognition and Spiritual Cheating!

24

 

Happy Tuesday!  It’s Podcast day!  Episode 24: Fleas, Angels, Precognition and Spiritual Cheating!  

The pets, Sunshine the Cat and Happy the dog took me on a bit of an introductory detour as we discussed fleas and grooming and their experience of topical flea pesticides.  Then we get down to business, following up with the questions from October 11th blog entry: No Wrong Way to Die.

We have gotten so much mileage from this post.  We ask and give possible answers to questions such as:

I forgot where I came from (spiritually) only because I wanted to remember again?

Because “heaven” is too wonderful and souls are eager to learn things the hard way? 

Because the time and temperature on earth is perfect for human habitation so why not?  Let’s be suffering humans? Really?!

Big existential questions, y’all!  I do my best.

Then MB came in with questions about Dowsing & Pendulums – how the heck to those things work?  And precognitive dreams, how do you know when you’ve had one?  How can you tell if it’s real???
And you get the context for this photo:
