Animal communication / Psychic Animal reading
Would you like to have a sit-down heart-to-heart conversation
with your animal companion(s)? Did you know animals have a level of awareness and ability to communicate that is far above what most people realize?
how it works
Vanessa is similar to a translator or interpreter, but for animals rather than humans. Instead of speaking a foreign language, Vanessa "speaks" the same intuitive language your animal does. This allows her to relay messages back and forth between you and your animal companion.
Voilá, you and your animal companion are having a conversation!
(Intuitive language involves the 8 different Clair-Senses.)

Preparing for your reading
You DO NOT need to provide details other than your animal’s name and your primary reason for engaging in a conversation with them.
At the beginning of the call, Vanessa will provide a few of the details below to verify we are connecting with your desired animal.
Physical Appearance (possibly breed)
Type of Diet
Abnormal or Excessive Behaviors
Injuries and/or Illnesses
Manner of Passing (if applicable)
For your reading, it works best to be in a quiet environment free from distractions.
It can be helpful to have questions or topics ready that you want to ask/address with your animal companion.
You may want to take notes during your reading, or you can record your reading.
Living animals do not need to be present or awake.
It is not uncommon for animals or passed loved ones to make an appearance, other than those requested.

Animals Say the Wisest Things
A monthly, animal wisdom transformational-coaching group. You will learn how to intuitively connect, soul-to-soul with a wide variety of animals so that you directly hear their profound guidance. Vanessa then helps integrate that animal wisdom into your subconscious mind, which is the most powerful manifesting region of your brain, not your conscious thinking mind. The negative and limiting beliefs, stories, and impressions living within the subconscious mind will always override the conscious mind's best-laid intentions/plans. So, just like that 1990s TV show called Kids Say The Darndest Things, you will discover that animals, too, say the wisest, funniest, most profound things that will help you live your life with greater ease, joy, empowerment, and fulfillment.
Become your boldest and best self with animals as your life coaches!

Your animal companion was not "just" a dog, cat, horse...
In January of 2019, my beloved Westie named Dustin, passed away. This loss was excruciatingly painful for me and as I was flooded with a tsunami of grief, I questioned whether I would survive it. Throughout my life, my animal companions have always been a source of refuge and love, something that was deeply needed due to some childhood trauma. Dustin was super special though, he was also my guru and my co-pilot in life. He always lived peacefully and joyfully in the NOW, as you can see from his dirty snout in the photo above. People who met him would often say he was like a wise human, a sage. I often called him, little man. A few weeks after his passing, I decided to try my first ever animal reading with an animal communicator/pet medium. As I got on the phone with the pet medium, I immediately felt Dustin excitedly sitting in front of me looking up at me. The pet medium then said, “Dustin wants me to tell you your little man is sitting right in front of you.” I had never told her I called him that. I love that kind of confirmation! She went on to tell me many more things that were spot on that helped me feel more peace about his passing, and this growing realization that Dustin and I could continue our relationship.
For the love of dustin
Vanessa's Story & Backgroud
Dustin, being aware of how difficult his passing was for his mom, continued to let me know he was still here in spirit form. Immediately after his passing, I would regularly feel (clairsentience) Dustin’s spirit pop in. Then I would hear (clairaudience) him loudly and excitedly say, “Hi mommy, I’m here!”, causing me to melt into a puddle of tears. In fact, immediately after I had to put Dustin to sleep, I was sitting in my car on the phone, telling my mom Dustin was gone while balling my eyes out. As soon as I hung up, Dustin was there, impatiently tapping his paw so to speak. He wanted to let me know he was here and that my dog walking duties were still not over. He requested we go for a walk at one of his favorite parks and so we went.
Walk, sniff, read pee-mail, write pee-mail (pee-mark). Going for walks was one of Dustin's favorite things to do.
Today, Dustin's visits make me laugh and cry at the same time as I feel the familiarity of his innate joyfulness and feel grateful for our continuing relationship. He still suggests we go for walks together, usually when he knows I need to get off my computer and take a break from work, or when he seems in the mood to do what we use to do. How does he do this? An image of a place we use to go for walks is suddenly inserted into my brain (clairvoyance). Or I will feel a prodding (clairsentience) to get up off my butt while at the same time an image (clairvoyance) of his leash pops into my head. Or I will excitedly hear him say, “Let’s go for a walk!” (clairaudience), almost like he’s mimicking the way I use to say it to him. He always did have and still has quite the sense of humor.
Dustin only allowed me to take a day off from walking if I happened to be very sick and had a doctor's note. All other excuses were unacceptable, except if I were busy making a tasty meal.
Although Dustin’s visits after his passing were not the first time I had received metaphysical communication from Dustin, it was the first time that I decided to actually explore it. As a result of this continued spirit communication, I became inspired to develop my abilities further and I completed an animal communication training taught by Dr. Cara Gubbins. Going through her training was one of the best experiences of my life. When I die and look back on my life, it will be one of the things I am most proud that I did while here on earth. These days, I regularly communicate with animals, nature, elementals, and spirit, which makes life so much more magickal and divinely guided. And now, I am so excited to be able to offer my animal communication and animal priestess skills to help other people have a better and deeper relationship with animals.

Eddie Murphy in the Dr. Dolittle movie.
As an ANIMAL COMMUNICATOR/PET MEDIUM, I facilitate profound communication between you and your animal companion(s). Yes, they really can speak to us, and we, all of us, really can hear them speak. Dr. Dolittle is not just a fictional story. Communication happens through the various eight different Clair-Senses such as clairvoyance (clear-seeing), claircognizance (clear-knowing), clairaudience (clear-hearing), clairsentience (clear-physical-feeling), clairempathy (clear-emotional-feeling), clairtangency (clear-touching), clairsalience (clear-smelling), and clairgustance (clear-tasting). These extrasensory or psychic senses are as real as our ability to see the physical world with our physical eyes or taste food with our physical mouth. It’s just that those “supernatural” abilities have often been forgotten, ignored, or programmed into hiding due to our culture and/or parental upbringing.
In fact, through my other business called FemYinist Media (femyinistmedia.com), I am passionate about helping women and girls reclaim their feminine superpowers. Talking to animals is one of those superpowers. I envision one day also supporting very young girls in maintaining their magick so they don’t have to go through the tragedy of forgetting their full-scale gifts and abilities.
So, imagine being able to know if your animal companion likes their food, or if they have an ouchy, or if they are happy. Or what if you could find out why they are behaving in a way you might not like, and then gracefully and respectfully resolve that behavior issue?
They can also tell us if they are ready to cross over or what is needed to make their transition more graceful for both you and them. And, they can communicate with us from the other side and guide our lives as animal-angels or animal life-coaches.
Whatever you wish to learn, you and your animal companion will be able to understand each other better and have a more fulfilling relationship. If your animal companion has crossed over, you will be able to connect with their spirit and find peace and healing.
We are born with the ability to communicate with animals.
Here's some guidance I received from a wild horse in the etheric plane when I asked for some advice about an upcoming meeting: A wild horse appeared, then he took me for a very fast sprint on his back without a saddle. Then he said, "Live your life more in the energy of unbridled freedom." The sensation of riding wildly on his back, along with his divine message, inspired me to take a much bolder stance in an upcoming pitch meeting and I nailed it!
As an ANIMAL PRIESTESS, I help you learn to directly and intuitively connect, soul-to-soul with a wide variety of animals who are eager to share their wisdom and help you live your boldest and best life. Through their profound messages, spiritual guidance, and energetic transmissions imprinted within your very cells, you will not only discover and/or strengthen your intuitive skills, but also feel more supported, guided, and empowered on your life journey. Just imagine having animals as your personal life coaches - your support team. They’ve got your back!
Pigeon Story - my personal life coach
One of my favorite interactions with a wild animal was with a handsome pigeon in a park. I had never seen a pigeon with such an impressive plume of colors; he had yellow, purple, red, orange, and black glistening feathers. I decided to let him know that I thought he was quite the looker. I said hello to him and let him know how handsome he was. I was genuinely amazed by his colors, so the emotional intensity of my appreciation was significant. I continued to take a few moments to enjoy his feathers and compliment him while I sat relaxing on a park bench.
Then I was interrupted, I received one of those annoying telemarketing calls on my cell phone. After blocking the number, I further became distracted by a story on my news feed and started reading it. Then shockingly, like a child bursting into a full-throttle scream during prayer in church, I was startled out of my mobile device trance. I heard, “HEY, ADMIRE ME SOME MORE!” By the way, when I hear an animal's voice in my head, it often sounds totally different from my voice. If I had a group of animals in front of me and were to repeat what they have to say, it would sound like I was doing voice-over for an animated animal movie.
Anyway, I immediately put my phone down and went back to admiring this guy. Then, something incredible happened. At first, I was admiring him as myself, the observer. Then spontaneously my consciousness shifted and I began experiencing his consciousness.
This pigeon is colorful as well, but I did not get a picture of the one in my story because I was too immersed in the experience, and then he took off.
I was suddenly able to feel the energy of my appreciation as he was experiencing it and soaking it in. Wow, mind-blowing, right!? Well, actually, it's an expansion of consciousness. Consciousness is not limited to existing within one's own mind.
You look amazing!
The beautiful thing about this expansion of consciousness was that I learned a powerful life lesson on a deep somatic level. I was able to experience being another BEING that was entirely capable of receiving admiration. As women, how many times do we push off a compliment or look in the mirror and criticize ourselves? I remember thinking to myself afterward that if I could live my life fully able to appreciate myself and receive appreciation from others as he did, then I would be unstoppable.
Anytime I start leaning towards criticizing myself, I stop and tap into the sensory memory of that experience still living within my cells. So, to this day, that pigeon in the park continues to be my personal development coach. How amazing is that?!
In conclusion, Dustin loved to roll in the morning dew. Take baths...not so much. I finally let go of the battle and mostly let him be as dirty as he wanted until it became a little too unbearable. I wish I had a picture of him the day he rolled in a huge pile of horse manure. It took 5 baths and a few days of airing out to get rid of the smell.
I am so grateful that my deep and profound love for Dustin helped open me up to the enriching, fempowering, and magickal experience of being in communication with animals, nature, elementals, and spirit.
Thank you, Dustin, my LOVE.
