The Literary Word – Book Reviews: Communication With All Life: Revelations of an Animal Communicator by Joan Ranquet

The Literary Word – Book Reviews: Communication With All Life: Revelations of an Animal Communicator by Joan Ranquet. This is a nice review of my book – it’s nice after all this time to find people still out there reading it and sharing their thoughts. Most importantly, she is using it – as in she actually isn’t using the word ‘rescue’ anymore, rather adopted!  Thank you Charlene for the nice review!

I’m still in Denver, one more event to go at the Shining Lotus to benefit tomorrow night to benefit the Harrison Memorial Animal Hospital.

The Rocky Mountain Horse Expo in Denver has been great.  I enjoyed the groups each day of my lectures and loved reconnecting with many old clients and friends. I obviously need to keep coming back!  I got to see Temple Grandin speak and can’t wait to dive into her newest book (and yes I have a signed copy!)

Join me Wed. on my radio show: Pet Talk Live on www.contacttalkradio.com and of course for my spring workshops – Animal Alchemy and Animal Communication – go to: www.joanranquet.com/events.

In Transit, literally and the film – as always, other random thoughts of an Animal Communicator

Isabella said goodnight to 2009 a while ago!

Happy New Year!  It is a time of opportunity, fun and amazing transformation.  Last year feels like it had all the awkward growing pains for what is going to set sail this new decade. 

I have had my own personal transformation. . . in the last 8 weeks, I lost my 90 year old father.  He was such an inspiration to many and while I know that he is with my mom and many other great animal companions, relatives and friends, it is still fresh and painful.  I so hear the pain in my clients voice as they call either about an animal that they recently lost or about to lose.

For some reason the holidays accentuate that, whether it is that we love memories around this type of year so the loss feels greater than say a random day in June or the mere fact that it is literally the darkest time of the year.  No matter as to the origin of the pain, the pain is there and deserves attention – being brought to the light.

I’m also writing because on the otherside of the holidays, here in the new year, I don’t remember a time I felt more hopeful.  There are so many exciting things in the wings that I will slowly reveal as they come to fruition. 

For me – it is also a time of tranformation in my career. In the worst economy, I started Communication with all Life University and in March – I have my first graduating class.  I’m blogging – I don’t even text regularly, yet I love this.  Lots of other things are transforming before my eyes that are so positive, so amazing……the reason I’m writing this is I know it is for you as well.  Sometimes we just can’t see it.

I found a video from my past – I used to be an actress for those that don’t know my history or haven’t read my book, “Communication with all Life”.  I’m actually posting it because talk about a transformation!!  The video below is just a fun reminder of the world I came from – acting!! I loved acting, I loved the whole world of it. I educated myself in the best possible situations, I knew all the right people and yet………well the video is great – it was my dream to act and yet I followed another big passion – animals and I don’t look back (except to view various productions I was in):

Dailymotion – In transit, par Cédric Klapisch – une vidéo Cinéma.

Then this life of being an Animal Communicator totally took over my life!! I’m happy to say that this is definitely the work I’m supposed to be doing. I have been busy since about the day I said I’d do it…..unlike life in my acting world. I will say I was always getting some sort of play, little film, etc. I always joked with my Dad that I finally got a steady job when I became a pet psychic.  

Clearly I didn’t love the acting world enough to endure the actor’s lifestyle. Or there was a better divine plan for me.  Either way – this work, this life has brought us together even if just through these words on a screen.  My wish for you is that you follow your dream and find your divine plan!

Now my work and my lifestyle are congruant. I love that. On the days that I’m home doing phone sessions, I’m here with my own animals. If I go away from my home to talk to an animal – funny how that works, I’m with animals!

I know I’m very lucky and I want to take this time to thank all of my clients and students and even readers who are what make this life possible.

oh dear an injured deer and other not so random thoughts of an Animal Communicator

Last night on my way to the grocery store after three miles of dirt roads to get to town, I saw a little deer on the side of the road – it wanted me to spot him/her.  He was injured.  On a horse, the spot would be the stifle – and therefore the hoof wasn’t working yet there was a great amount of bend on the stifle itself.  I stopped.  This was not a frightened deer.

While I couldn’t say if I had sat there for very long that the deer would have eaten out of my hand, I will say – this deer wasn’t intimidated by me.  It wanted me to see him.  I heard gun shots all day I couldn’t help but to think that it was a gunshot wound and of course I made up that it lost its mother to a hunter.

The wound wasn’t fresh, it wasn’t even oozing.   Swollen, yes.  And this little deer was definitely negotiating the hind leg like it had figured this out.  I stopped; felt awful made a few phone calls and carried on with my grocery store mission.

When I came home, I called Paws.org only to discover that they won’t be open until the a.m. I contacted other groups and learned a lot.

I thought to myself, I have an empty stall, I could rehab.  However, this deer is two miles away.  How would I get this adolescent deer into a horse trailer if I could talk a friend into helping me?

I kept calling, only to discover lots about deer.  I really thought about the deer video I posted a week and a half ago – a deer as a pet. I thought heck – I’m already octomom of horses, dogs, cats, what a deer is going to break me? Not.

The truth is my better instinct kicked in.  I watched the deer, he had little safe spots.  Someone (can’t remember whether it was Sarvey Wildlife Center or the Second Chance Wildlife Care Center in Arlington, or possibly even another  group) thought that because I got out of the car and so close to the deer, perhaps it already had been fed by humans.

I also thought to myself at some point, live and let live – definitely do not chase – 6:00 pm Sunday night in Carnation is not high traffic, yet, I would hate to be trying to do something and drive the deer into traffic. 

No matter how painful it is, nature has a way of correcting itself.  As sweet as this deer was, the doe eyes – yet youthful, those crazy radar ears, the sweetness of the being, this deer has its own trajectory, contract, outcome that I have nothing to do with.  Today I made an impact the size of one breath saying I’d love to help you and I could feel it acknowledge my intent by not running off.

However, and this is why I write this, I learned tonight by wildlife experts there is actually a disease – I believe called White Muscle disease that occurs for injured deer. You see a deer that has no experience with humans that is beyond the spotted stage (this deer was beyond the spotted stage – probably between 4-7 months) will not imprint to humans for help.

So baby still with spots orphan deer can do well in our environment and be fine to return to the wild after a few bottles.  Any other deer can go into fight or flight and never come out of that state.  They will fight and fight – even if I had a horse trailer with me – I would have sparked perhaps the onset of a disease.   Once they are no longer in this fight state – it still triggers this disease.  This bizarre disease or condition is called:  ‘white muscle’ (or something like that) disease and it makes the muscles break down and eat themselves from staying in flight mode for too long.

As long as it is exposed to the condition that created the flight or fight status, it will not come out of that state.

I’m glad my instinct had me observe from a far this particular deer’s activity as I watched it go into a pasture through the opening in a fence.  This was not new, it was familiar.  I know where this deer is even now, not far from what it obviously perceives as a safe spot.

My guess is based on horse knowledge is that something in the hoof is not working based on the puncture (bullet) wound to the stifle area. The woman on the phone at Sarvey said we can only hope that area is a safe spot for that deer and that it will heal itself. A tendon or ligament injury like that takes time and we’ll see how kind this winter is.

I will say this about that deer, it is very smart and intuitive. It hid for other cars, but not for me.  It found an exact spot in a barbed wire fence to fit through.  It was eating leaves and grass under the frost every time I got close. And it was not skinny.

We just lost our Animal Control here due to lack of funding – so calling them was not an option.  If the deer were in worse shape – Game and Wildlife would have been the right call.  Because the wound wasn’t fresh, this deer has figured something out –

I had to look up in Ted Andrews Animal Speak – Deer: Gentleness and Innocence – Gentle Luring to New Adventure.

The wound wasn’t brand new and it wasn’t terribly old.  Let’s see that wound heal, the hoof work and that deer carry on.  And by reading this – you’ve been exposed to your own possible gentle admission of your new adventure……….what will that be in this New Year?

Blessings, Joan

Broward County Humane Society and other random thoughts of an Animal Communicator

Broward County Humane Society Benefit

Animal Communication mini class

Last Thursday we did a big benefit for the Broward County Humane Society in Ft. Lauderdale at the Jessica Sydney showroom. It was a lovely place to host such an event. Amidst the gorgeous furniture (yes I found what I’d like next for my living room) were plenty of stations with various things like New Age Books & Things crystals with some crystal blankets for horses, dogs and cats by Claudia Carpenter. Central Bark Doggy Daycare had a wonderful booth on good foods and the Humane society also had their retail shop up and going and a great dog massage practitioner – Hope of Dog Massage by Hope had a booth there.  New Age Books & Things had a set up with my book and new cd’s so I got to sign lots of books before speaking. (Oh goody!)

The other great thing is they had an abundance of wonderful things donated for the raffle. I wanted a tropical dog bed that would of course become a kitten bed as well. I didn’t win. Oh well.

They had smart things donated like rug cleaning service (HELLO!) air duct cleaners (can you say dog hair), lots of basket by fancy pet boutiques, riding lessons by a wonderful horse trainer (lots of horsey peeps there) and much much more. 

All in all it was a great event – a lot of money and awareness was raised,  everyone had fun and the best was how happy the dog Sebastian was that he got to talk to the group during my mini class.

Teleseminar with John Holland and other random thoughts of an Animal Communicator

We had an amazing call last night with John Holland in the Animal Education Series. I love when someone is doing something different than I am and yet it resonates into being the same. John Holland as a Medium, communicating with people’s loved ones that have crossed over uses the same ‘language’ as telepathy – it is pictures, words and feelings.

Being a medium can be very different because an experience would wash right through him whereas I can be affected by things (and of course I am) but I have many tools to clear things right away. I know someone like John Holland would also. It is something I advocate when I’m teaching – because sometimes we are connecting into some intense emotions or experiences and then we have to leave it where it belongs!

I know I’m going to go preorder his new book “The Spirit Whisperer” on Amazon.com.

I’m still in awe of how fun the class was last night and I have so many great new calls coming up also.

More random thoughts of an Animal Communicator

dog sitter Auntie Olivia 003

Olivia is the most amazing Aunt……she takes care of the kittens when the momma is away. The kittens are so cute at this point sometimes I have to have a cute time out. Really it is overwhelming the cute factor!!

I have big things – I have an Animal Communication University to put together and I can’t have so much cuteness!

The teleseminars are a big hit. More people are joining the University, all is well here. The cute factor just adds to the equation. It was hard on the University call tonight with my students not to do a blow by blow call of what the kittens are doing on their kitten turn out. But then again, I could do it all day long with anyone that called that would listen to cute kitten stories!

It just reminds me that everyday is precious.

And that’s a great thing.

The new farm, the new kitty and other random thoughts of an Animal Communicator

 

 

Life on the new farm with new kitty
Life on the new farm with new kitty

 

The new farm, the new kitty, the new, the new, the new…..We have a new member at our farm, (and we have a new farm).  We just added Francesca, the new kitty. It has definitely taken a toll on Isabella. Isabella is the lab that I adopted almost 2 years ago. It will be two years September 18th. Isabella doesn’t feel like the youngest anymore, the baby. Yet, she’s the baby dog!

What she also doesn’t realize is that all of our skills will be necessary here coming up as this is a childbride…..this cat is like a bag of kittens, she will be giving birth any minute. Talk about grow up time for the lab! And I will become Sistah Kitty Gramma.

Meanwhile, Olivia (7 yr. old ½ Border Collie) thinks I brought the cat home for her. And the cat  was supposedly feral. I moved in 2 weeks ago,  Mind you, moving in to the new place is at least a 2 bedroom home – plus me and two dogs, the horses arrived (so a full barn with equipment and tack) the day my friends delivered the new cat.

I call her Francesca. I had never met her. My friends told me about a cat they trapped in Idaho and I said I’d take her. They drove her out. The day she was delivered was the 2 year anniversary of Alexandria’s departure. Alexandria was my beloved cat of 13 years that disappeared two years and two weeks ago.  (Anyone who has read my book “Communication with all Life, Revelations of an Animal Communicator” knows all of these characters!!)

So Francesca, the feral cat (like Alexandria the feral cat I adopted 15 years ago) walks through and goes to the old spots that Alexandria loved – even though things are in boxes, she still is gravitating toward  pieces of furniture. She and Olivia sleep next to each other. Isabella has tried to chase her and after two time outs – she gets this will be her best friend. In fact just tonight Isabella was asleep on the couch and I sat with her. I put Francesca on my lap and Francesca immediately wanted off. How did she get off of my lap – oh she just walked over Isabella. Awesome.

It almost feels like a case for reincarnation, don’t you think? Or sent to me by my darling Alexandria? Alexandria could be on the other side or in someone else’s living room and her continued care for my wellbeing sent in this adorable cat with the same origins as her………..for that kitty love. Her intention alone of continuing to take care of me sent in her clone personality wise. (I mean down to not covering poop because she expects me to say – here let me clean that up for you while also expecting me to hand over my veggies, etc.) It’s as if Alexandria never left, I just have a different coloring but same behavior, same feelings – even with Olivia.  

I’ve included a picture of Francesca with my book and with the Hay House UK version of my book with a different cover. Doesn’t she look like the kitten on the cover?    Francesca found the Hay House UK version of my book
