Communication with All Life University Graduation, Dr. Steven Farmer and other random thoughts of an Animal Communicator

Big fun was had by all!

Barely a week ago was the graduation dinner for the first year of Communication with all Life University. It was quite a year.  We spent the last 3 days of it working from early until late. Our finals were at Little Bit Therapeutic riding center. There, my students talked to a couple of horses in the program and dogs that the staff brought from home.  It was an awesome day. Bittersweet – Awesome for them.  For me? Also amazing – and I have to let them blossom on their own – time to let go – how spring like!!!!

In the time that they were here, we reviewed the last year in terms of each of the student’s accomplishments as well as how they utilized their electives (of body work or energy work).  We examined how to set up and market their Animal Communicator practice/business.  Of course, that blueprint has been in place for some time through the various assignments.  We had intuitive moments and business building as well as structure creating and brainstorming on how to build the day/week/career they want.  Many stayed on for Animal Alchemy – the others flew out that had taken it last year – what a 10 day period!

The growth and commitment of everyone has been astounding.  I’m so moved.  I am amazed at how much these people wanted to stretch and how far they came by being willing.  We have had so many laughs and plenty of tears.  

Our excursions have always been fun (I love a good field trip whether we are at the Seattle campus or the Orlando campus!)  Our field trips have been as wide-ranging as Snoqualmie Falls to a Trapeze Act during dinner to an Orb tour to the Pike Place Market Ghost tour to a Magic show in Orlando, Fairy hikes, trail rides outside of Orlando, the cow milking package to the Space Needle.  Not to mention, wonderful dinners!  Hopefully next Orlando trip is an airboat ride and next October here is a sea plane over the city.

Aside from the use of the electives, they all expressed something they learned and tried from the various Animal Education Teleseminars.  Or what they gained (or didn’t) from the various assignments.

They have raised the bar for me in terms of what to expect from students. For the most part when I said jump – they didn’t question, they telepathically asked “how high”?  And then they elegantly followed through.  I couldn’t have asked for a better, more diverse and wonderful group.   Oh did I drive them crazy sometimes!

I also have great help from Shannon the Lead Mare and Dean of Students.  Additionally, the dorm couldn’t have been a wackier place at TYD Farm (Thank you Virginia).  And thank you Geri for your serene dorm in Geneva, Fl.

Thank you Shannon, Pam, Diane, Sarah and Veronica for making me become a better teacher!

Listen to the grads on Pet Talk Live with me yesterday (March 24th 2010): http://feeds.feedburner.com/joanranquet.  They did great kitten readings! Always, the kittens can be found on www.youtube.com/joanranquet.

And of course my new RADIO SHOW – PET TALK LIVE! Tomorrow is Dr. Steven Farmer – woohoo!!!   March 31st 2010  Have you ever wondered about your Power Animals and what it all means? Do you know who your Animal Spirit Guides are? Are you finding Earth’s magic in the everyday realm? If these are questions in your stratosphere, you may want to join me when I interview Dr. Steven Farmer – Author of “Earth Magic” and much more.  We will have the usual readings for my personal kittens, the Rescue of the week and I’m happy to do readings for you on this very special show. Even better – talk to Dr. Steven Farmer!   

Blessings, Joan

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.

I have  a few more things to add:

Missing pet partnership, Kat Albrecht, Lost animals and other not so random thoughts of an Animal Communicator

Lost animals are truly the hardest piece of being an Animal Communicator. Many people think that they want to become an Animal Communicator because they wanted to go to vet school but they couldn’t handle the tragedies or the sick animals. Well, there are no shortage of tragedies as an animal communicator, the biggest one being – lost animals. Partly because there is no closure.

I discovered a missing piece to a puzzle tonight. I know working to help people find lost animals is so important. I know that sometimes people get closure – even if it means finding the body of their beloved. That  is better than the unknown, the forever haunting “what if I had only braved the cold…..crawled under the house….bothered my neighbors a little more……”

Monday night in my Animal Education Teleseminar – my guest was Kat Albrecht, a true Pet Detective and founder of http://www.missingpetpartnership.org and she was so inspiring. She was inspiring for many reasons which I will cheerfully divulge.

However, the missing puzzle piece tonight after 14 years of lost animal work from the psychic world is this…..for those that get debilitated emotionally, or can’t for some reason put some effort into finding your animal when they are lost – you must get out there and look. So many people give up right away thinking a coyote or a car got them. That is less the case than not. Then these animals become part of the feral community and/or the overrun shelters…..and adoption is at an all time low. I always do my homework before a call – but that was a delayed unexpected deep seated raison d’être for continuing lost animal work.

I’m working my tail off to help people keep forever homes through consultations, speaking and my book . . . so even for me tonight there was a major lightbulb. Really encourage at all costs people to get out and look – no matter what defeated excuses they give. And as I have ALWAYS said to clients, Kat confirmed – it’s a time to knock on your neighbors doors and ask if you can look in their yard.

************I lost my beloved Alexandria two years ago (after 13 years), so this was an especially important call.  Alexandria was very much my personal emotional raison d’être. She and I had been together in LA, Seattle, Denver, Florida and back to Seattle. She could move and bounce like the best of them. She had been on 3 farms, 2 urban setting, one suburban setting a beach townhouse and beachhouse, ski condo’s guest homes and hotels…… she was always THERE. Her disappearance is a story for another blog – this should focus on Kat and her amazing detective work.

Kat’s site http://www.missingpetpartnership.org has an amazing amount of tips for lost animals. And I might add this is Kat’s raison d’être. Her passion and skill came into play as she was a forensics detective that used dogs and one of her dogs was lost. Her dog was not only her lifeline to her detective work, but also her baby. She used her retired detective dog to find the newer dog and the idea sparked for missing pets.

Most of my students in Communication with all Life University are coming to the animal communication certification program later in life, as a second career. Kat’s awesome passion, her pursuit, her doubt, and her determination is an inspiration to all. Almost everyone was inspired by her amazing perseverance and others of course are drawn to the detective aspect.

There are always amazing calls on my Animal Education Teleseminar series – the continuing education part of Communication with all Life University – but this one hit a chord for all for many different “raison’s”.
Blessings, Joan

Pet owners turn to massage, yoga to help furry friends — OrlandoSentinel.com

Pet owners turn to massage, yoga to help furry friends — OrlandoSentinel.com

It’s always great to have a nice mention. . . .I happened to be calling the Orlando Sentinel about one of the benefits we were doing and the next thing you know I was being interviewed about my Animal Communication classes and ultimately asked about my University.

I’m very proud of my University. My students are doing great and the first round of 5 are about to graduate in March.  So the heat is on for them. We are creating a business and intuition building exercise that will last for the next 3 months. It will get them out in the community they live in, engage other practitioners, have them use their electives and also work with local pet businesses. Not to mention, one of the ultimate beneficiaries of this assignment is the rescue org of their choice.  It’s awesome. (I’m calling it THE assignment – not to scare them or anything!)

And they are an amazing and courageous group of people. I’m proud to have Communication with all Life University mentioned in the Orlando Sentinel. I’m also glad to see the work of Jo Maldanado and CAT (Center for Animal Therapies.)

We had a great Dr. Steven Farmer call last night and the exciting news is we will be doing a live event soon together – but that’s all I can share. Interested in Aromatherapy for pets? Saddle fitting – join the teleseminars – for more info:

kittens and other random thoughts of an animal communicator

The kittens are two weeks old. Eyes are open, little personalities appearing, in fact, they are a handful already.

The momma cat – Francesca is amazing. She moves the babies when they are unruly – into places where they are controlled while she’s busy elsewhere.

My dogs are absolutely competing to be the better babysitter. Pictures to come…….stay tuned!
