    Are Your Animals Trying To Tell You Something?

    Are Your Animals Trying To Tell You Something?

    Are your animals communicating with you telepathically? Animal communication is the ability to sense what an animal is subtly telling you. You may hear a whisper of their voice or have an inner knowing as to what they are saying to you. Sometimes we see cloudy or clear images-similar to a movie playing out before our eyes. This is also known as telepathy –communication between the minds.
    Linda Roberts is an Animal Communicator. On this episode we'll discuss communicating with your animals, how animals can convey their healthcare issues to you, how pet therapy helps aid in convalescence, and separation anxiety for both humans and animals during COVID19. With her lifelong love of animals, Linda gladly gives the animals a voice via animal communication. It is through an energetic, heartfelt connection that she is able to communicate with animals. Her communications can be achieved either in the presence of the animal or remotely, due to the energetic nature of communication.She assists animals and their human companions with behavioral and health issues, living arrangement changes, and end of life transitions. She also offers energy healing, soul retrieval, and shamanic teachings for her clients.
    Linda enjoys the company of 2 dogs, 2 cats, 2 goldfish, 2 Leopard Geckos and one horse. She confesses that they have been her greatest teachers.

    It's been 7 months and the WORLD is still very much on pause, and yes we are on FIRE and MELTING in California. The more we take a deep dive into the Corona-Pocalypse narrative, the more the world seems to be like "the upside down" in Stranger Things.

She'll explain what metaphysics is and how it can be practiced in the NURSING and healthcare professions. We'll also discuss how metaphysics can help explain our current Coronoa-pocalypse reality.

A good mix of insights and opinions

Podcasts aren’t meant to replace formal education, but this is a great way to hear opinions and insights into the industry from first-hand accounts. Ersilia is an interesting host with a lot of experience, diverse guests and an exciting personality. Strongly encourage a listen!

Boomrabbitt ,

Stop interrupting

Some good content here but you interrupt guests CONSTANTLY. You ask your guest a question and they get 2 words out when you cut them off. It’s very hard to listen to. Self awareness is important. Hope it gets better.
