Let's Have A Chat!

Kids & Family Podcasts

Your dog has separation anxiety. Whines, and cries every time you pick up your keys. Your new cat is fighting with your older cat, and one of them is not using the litter box. Your horse is shying at the mounting block when she used to stand like a statue. Living with animals enriches our lives in so many ways, yet when they are confused or unwell, their behaviors become our concern. The truth is, in order to make themselves known, our animals express themselves through quirky, and sometimes undesired behaviors. When their communications fail to reach us they have to resort to demonstrative behaviors. When our animals “speak” to us we are given a choice: we can dismiss them as silly and goofy or we can choose to stop… and listen. By knowing how to listen to your pet, you will solve problems and be shown a world that is nothing short of miraculous. In this podcast, "Let's have a Chat," you will discover the secret to communicating with animals successfully. If your animal is your soul-mate, then listen in as Nicole Birkholzer, animal communication expert, author, and storyteller provides you with ideas to have a mindful and meaningful chat with your own animal to resolve quirky and undesired behaviors.

#30 Let Your Body Inform You

8/3/2022
I didn’t expect a tap on the shoulder from a horse while laying face down on the massage table. There is no fuss or nicety, like 'oh, hi, how are you? What are you up to? What are you doing here?" going on. Nope. Without a chance to wonder why this horse was showing up in the middle of a massage session, the information was already zooming into my consciousness. 'When you come next week, you must help her work from the body.' Where the first words the horse conveyed. Show notes available...

Horses are energy sponges. When we stress because something is not going according to our plan — inclement weather, a muddy horse, a lost shoe — our horse not only picks up on it but is affected by it. When we resist what is, our horse becomes resistant, too. But, if we meet our horse in the now, with all the realities that encompass that very now, we’re literally guided to the best outcome possible. Listen in … I’ll show you how to turn mud and mayhem into serenity. Show notes available...

Imagine the animal’s point of view, the moment of shock when you are walking up to your person and all you see is a big boot that kicks you away.

And the issue that is stuck in the tissue has usually two ways of...

You wait for food. You get irritated. You snap. And then you are the felon. And you might get killed, or banned. Join me to look at Zoo Antics from the animal’s point of view.
