My first conversation as an animal communicator was with our male Red-Eared-Slider. His name is Theodore-The-Turtle or T Cubed. We rescued (bought) him in Chinatown on September 11, 2005. He was our 9-11 miracle and our proclamation of moving forward amidst the 9-11 somber memorial that was ongoing in NYC.
During 2005, I was just discovering my gifts. The possibility of talking to animals was never brought up. But one day, the question was asked “So, can you talk to Theodore?” My reply was, “I don’t know, I have never tried. But I will.” So, that is exactly what I did. Well, we had a great conversation about his diet and what he needed from us, his owners. From that moment forward, we have had meaningful and thoughtful talks.
In the summer of 2009, my family and I went on a long distance vacation. Theodore and Celeste (my yorkipoo) were not with us, as they were being babysat back at home.
My family went on a short day excursion, but I did not feel well so I stayed in our hotel room. I turned on the TV, and went flipping through the channels. The movie “Dr. Dolittle 3” caught my eye. I had seen the previous Dr. Dolittle movies with Eddie Murphy, and I had also seen the original “Doctor Dolittle” (from 1967) with my parents many years ago. Though I had liked the Dolittle movies, I had never resonated with them. You would think I would love them since they are about a person who can talk to animals. But I am not a male or a middle aged doctor. I am a young female just discovering my own intuitive gifts. In the “Dr. Dolittle 3,” the main character is Maya Dolittle (Dr. Dolittle’s daughter). She is a young teenage girl and learns to accept her gift of "talking to the animals".
By the time my family had returned, I had watched “Dr. Dolittle 3” three times in a row. I had found her character to be someone I could relate to. She portrayed someone who was intelligent, gifted, and functioning on this Earthly plane. She also had to deal with how her friends would treat her if they knew she could talk to animals. Wow. I could really relate to that.
To this day, I will watch this movie any time I need a reminder that it is alright to be so young, female, educated and gifted. She was an excellent role model for me at a time that I really needed one.
So I would like to encourage any young people who are reading this that it is okay to be who you are. Own it and share it. We need some more healthy role models. And also please share your stories about animal communication. We can all learn from each other.
