Facebook doesn’t let you have a business page without having a personal page so, therefore, I have both. My business page has posts about animal health, behavior, animal communication and the like. I try not to put up too much about animal activism but there will be a few in there. Now my personal page… watch out. I post about all kinds of activism, what is happening in the world, geoengineering and the like. I am sure hundreds of people have unfollowed me by now…LOL. But the thing is, with the way the world is today, I can’t NOT talk about it all. So you can follow both if you like, but in Facebook you have the choice to remain friends and just not follow someone:  ‘Well, yes I like her and all, and she has a good heart, but those relentless posts…. Honestly.’

About that food…

I have been feeding a real food, organic diet to my animals for years with great results. Many of my clients have  also made the switch and been happy with how their animals do. Integrative veterinarians often recommend a real food diet over commercial foods. Dr. Karen Becker is one such vet and she has many videos to help answer your questions and several online guides on feeding real food. Here are a few of her videos to get you started:




And here is video on  how to make your own food.


Here is the link for Dr. Becker’s youtube channel.



This is a short version of a longer post on pendulum dowsing that I did a few years back. This version cuts to the chase and assumes you know how to use a pendulum. If that is not the case, go to this link for the full explanation .
You can dowse to shift the energy for anything you want to change in life, for yourself or another or the earth.

Dowsing protocol:
Decide what projects/goals you want to dowse for. Can be more than one at a time. You should only dowse for the positive, not to bring harm to anyone or anything. Dowsing protocol is to ask permission before working to shift something.

Dowsing for Your Project:
Ask Permission – Can I, May I , Should I …..dowse to achieve this project/goal?
Once you have permission to dowse follow these steps:  Dowse to remove/neutralize: Get your pendulum circling counter clockwise. Ask the following and for each bullet ask the pendulum to tell you when done by stopping or going to yes:
• Remove negative energy from past (events,, lingering negative energy, ancestral karma,)
• Neutralize any negative beliefs (e.g. victim mentality) or negative feelings (e.g. anger, fear)
• Remove any evil or entities that may be adversely affecting you and your project. Ask that these be treated accordingly and taken to the place they belong where all harm is neutralized.
• Neutralize any curses that may have been put on me and my project and neutralize the spirit of greed.
• Neutralize any geopathic stressors affecting me and my project (including astrological influences, vortices and anything in the electromagnetic field, underground watercourses) (Note – if you are dealing with toxins dowse to have them neutralized)
• Remove all other obstacles to me achieving my project; repel all negative energy and negative people from me and my project.

Now dowse to bring in a positive result:  Get your pendulum circling in a clockwise direction. Ask for the following and ask the pendulum to tell you when done for each bullet by stopping or going to yes :

• Turn all that negative energy into love and positive outcomes
• Turn all that negative energy into positive energy
• Bring in only the best energy and people for me and my project(s)
When you finish say thank you for your projects/goals as if they have been accomplished.


My next online Beginning Animal Communication Class starts July 19. It is a two week class and meets the second time on July 26. Session options are 11 am and 6 pm pacific. Sign up on my site and get in touch with me if you have questions.


Please feel free to ask email of call me if you are having an issue with your animal. And I appreciate your referrals to your friends and acquaintances. To learn more about setting up a consultation, visit my site.

                                                          Marta’s web site

I usually suggest that people take my Beginning Animal Communication class to learn the basic techniques and then take my Talking with Your Own Animals class to learn how to use the techniques to receive messages from their own animals. Receiving information intuitively from your own animals can be more challenging. We  know our animals so well that we end up feeling we are making things up based on our own bias. However, if you want to get started right away and see what happens here is what I suggest. First start talking to your animal out loud as if talking to a person. Discuss any issues and tell your animal what you want. In particular, you can discuss any behaviors they are doing that you would like them to change. Make sure to explain in detail why you want them to change and tell them what they will gain from modifying their behavior.


Then ask your animal to begin to send you clear messages. Keep a notebook of anything that happens that you think is a message. These might come as thoughts, dreams, unusual behaviors, and etc. Every day take about 5 minutes to sit down somewhere quiet and ask your animal if he or she has a message for you. Record in your notebook whatever pops into your head. Don’t worry if it is right or not the idea is just to get something. Review your notebook regularly. Sometimes your animal’s messages will make more sense after a little time has passed.

You can do a private tutoring session with me anytime to learn the Beginning Animal Communication techniques. Once you learn those you can take any of the classes I offer. There are usually at least two online classes per month. See my website for more information.

Dealing With Grief…

I have had a lot of animals in my life. Right now I have 2 horses, 2 dogs, 2 cats and 8 chickens. I have also had a lot of animals die. Each death is hard and it doesn’t really get easier. The fact that nature is daily being assaulted and wild animals are being wiped out is also incredibly hard to handle. I am one of those people who can’t ignore reality. So instead I seek ways to address all this.

Grieving the Earth

My favorite author on the subject of dealing with grief and the devastation of nature is Joanna Macy. She says we have to feel and recognize our grief for the earth, for how else will we find the passion to change what is happening? Her advice is to work with others and to share your feelings of grief. She advises to work together on a common project to redress what is wrong.

… this is the time …. to reach and expand into our full humanity, and in that humanity will be our anger and outrage, our imagination, our creativity, our laughter. We are going to come alive now, ….. I call that The Great Turning.

I have taken her advice and am working on a variety of projects for animals and to help the earth. It does make a difference

What’s the Fuss?

The mainstream media is hiding the truth about what is happening to life on earth. Most of us are unaware of the magnitude of what is wrong. Dane Wigginton does a state of the earth podcast each week and covers the most critical things that are occurring. He does his research and what he says, I believe, is the bottom line.

Grieving an Animal You Loved

One thing I have found particularly useful when you lose an animal is to talk to the spirit of the animal out loud and ask them to help you and show you they are near. This article is focused on losing an animal you love.

You’re Not Crazy You’re Mourning, Grisha Stewart

Here are Stewart’s 7 principles of mourning:

  • Principle One: You cannot fix or cure grief.
  • Principle Two: There is no one right way to grieve.
  • Principle Three: There is no universal timetable for the grief journey.
  • Principle Four: Every loss is a multiple loss.
  • Principle Five: Change=Loss=Grief.
  • Principle Six: We grieve old loss while grieving new loss.
  • Principle Seven: We grieve when a loss has occurred or is threatened

Tips from Marta – Talking to Your Own Animals

Talking with your own animals can be challenging because whatever you receive back as a message can feel like you made it up, or already knew it. So it is hard to verify information from your own animals. That is why I recommend just talking to your animals out loud, sending them a positive message, like a compliment (again talking out loud) and then asking if they have a message. Whatever then pops into your head – idea, phrase, feeling, picture – accept it as a message from your animal and write it in a notebook where you record your results. The main goal of talking with your own animals is to get the experience of exchanging information back and forth. Don’t worry about the content, just focus on the process.


Always good to have an ideal to work toward...LOL

Most of my students and clients, and most practitioners of animal communication are women. Why is that? I have been thinking about that question for years. My conclusion is that it is because of the differences in the way boys and girls are raised. In his article Why Men Can’t Feel, Marvin Allen explains how boys and girls each receive different messages from the moment they are born. He states,

[T]hese messages encourage boys to be competitive, focus on external success, rely on their intellect, withstand physical pain, and repress their vulnerable emotions. When boys violate the code, it is not uncommon for them to be teased, shamed, or ridiculed. The cliche about men not being in touch with their emotions says nothing about inherent markers of maleness, but instead identifies behavioral outcomes that have been rigorously taught, often by well-meaning parents and society at large.


Estreya and D'Jengo
Little boys are comforted less, nurtured less, and parents of both sexes are more punitive toward their sons, presumably working under the assumption that boys can take it. In contrast, girls are allowed to maintain emotional expressiveness and cultivate connection. Boys are told to suppress their emotions, be unemotional, logical, in control, and strong.

When confronted with the prospect of animal communication, which is all about feeling and compassion and being vulnerable, many men turn heel and run. Once during a radio interview, Rupert Sheldrake, a British microbiologist and author of, Dogs that Know when their Owners Are Coming Home, told a story about a scientist colleague of his with whom he was having a beer. The colleague said to Sheldrake, ‘Rupert I believe that animals are telepathic, but you don’t expect me to admit that in public do you?’

I consider this gender gap as entirely artificial. I don’t believe women are better at intuition and psychic ability than men, I just think women let themselves engage their intuition to a greater extent than men. These abilities are not gifts that only certain people have, but a birthright that we all possess. I do, however, get the odd funny call from a wife who bought my book only to have it whisked away by her husband who then becomes an adept and devotee of animal communication, but of course only in private. I also have trained a few men who have become quite good at communicating.

To excel at animal communication, you need to practice, starting with learning the basics. If you want to learn with me, we can do that in a private tutoring session by phone or video whenever you like. Once you have the basics you can take any of the classes I offer online which are listed on my website.


New Book on Being Healthy

Dr Gundry has a new book out that seems pretty interesting. Here he is talking about it:



Readers’ Questions


Is there a way to tell or know if you are letting your own thought or feelings influence your reading? Is there a way to filter that out, or does it just come with time and experience.


There really is no way to control that for certain. You can set an intention before you do a reading to be impartial and get the truth. If you know you have a bias at the start you can intend to set that aside. Then you have to go check your results with the person who knows the animal. Verification is the only way to prove that your results are accurate. Over time as you do this practice you get more comfortable with the uncertainty inherent in intuitive work.

Cats with Unique Markings

The earth is getting more toxic. To keep yourself and your animals healthy, you need to be aware of what the health threats are, and head them off as best you can.

Some of the main concerns are radiation from a variety of sources, aluminum, barium and strontium from climate manipulation, fluoride added to municipal water supplies, genetically modified foods, and carbohydrates (including sugar). These same factors are of concern for your animals as well.

Here are some basic steps I take for myself and for my animals to address these threats.


To protect the thyroid I put iodine on my skin daily. I use betadine that you can get in a tack store. I put about a half a capful on my stomach and rub it in. It will absorb , and the quicker it does the more you need it. You can also get iodine at the health food store to take internally and or take kelp. I give extra kelp (uncontaminated Nordic source) to my animals.

I also now avoid all farmed seafood and any wild seafood from the Gulf and the Pacific due to potential contamination.

Apple pectin is what they used in Chernobyl to detox for radiation.

Here is an article from Dr. Mercola about radiation.

Chemical spraying

Dane Wiggington of geoengineeringwatch.org  has collected proof that free aluminum, barium and other contaminants are being deposited on top of the snow at Mt. Shasta.  The aluminum and other nanoparticulate toxins do not come from the ground and could only have occurred in pure form in the air if someone purposely released them. Aluminum has been linked to alzheimers. Here is an article about aluminum and alzheimers, and an article about memory loss and alzheimers  Erring on the side of caution I choose to assume we are being exposed and I do one or more of these easy daily detox ideas below for myself and my animals.

Chlorella – Pulls heavy metals from tissue and encapsulates toxins to prevent reabsorption in the digestive tract.
Apple Pectin – Absorbs heavy metals in the intestines and assists with removal. This is what they gave the children at Chernobyl.
Cilantro – Eliminates mercury, lead and aluminum from the body.
Oxygenated silver – Destroys bacteria, viruses and fungus.
Activated charcoal – Binds to heavy metals for safe removal from the body.
Clay – As a powerful detoxifier of heavy metals, parasites, pollutants, bacteria, fungi and viruses, bentonite clay is an excellent defense against the chemicals in chemtrails. For internal consumption, I get the food grade variety known as calcium bentonite clay. I also detox with a bath of clay and Epsom salts.

Here are some more ideas    This is from this link, https://chemtrailsnorthnz.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/protecting-yourself-from-chemtrails.pdf, and the information in this post is not from me,  but there are some interesting things to investigate.


There is compelling research on the dangers of fluoride. One especially nasty side effect is it calcifies the pineal gland, which is the gland most involved in intuition. I have well water so don’t have to deal with fluoride in water, but there are good filters that you can find to take fluoride out of your tap water and there are filters for your shower too. It is best if you use municipal water treated with fluoride to filter the water your animals drink too.  And go to nonfluoride products.


Genetically modified food (GMO)

Again there is a lot of research to indicate that GMOs are not good (see links below) so why not just be safe and go with non GMO and organic foods. It is increasingly easy to grow vegetables in containers and also indoors with grow lights. Just make sure to start with organic seeds.

Dogs and cats _ To feed your animals non-GMO you might look at a product like the two listed below. They are vegetable rehydrate products, one for dogs and one for cats, that you just add non GMO meat to (raw or cooked) and you have a non GMO meal.

Dog rehydrate product

Cat rehydrate product

Horses – Feeding horses non GMO can be a bit trickier. Just try to get hay that is not sprayed and if you buy a feed mix make sure it is organic. Or you could instead feed soaked grass hay pellets. They also now have organic alfalfa pellets. I put the supplements I feed my horses into a base of soaked pellets.

General info on GMO

Why its bad for us

How it is bad for the ecology


Carbohydrates and Sugar
Even though I was eating nonprocessed carbohydrates, I still had inflammation until I found the book, Dr. Gundry’s Diet Evolution. He has you avoid all sources of carbohydrates for a number of months and then only add back in some of the safer ones. Items to be avoided included stevia, and cooked yams, carrots and beets. I am very happy with the results. If you are having any problems with weight, blood pressure, heart, arthritis, and fibromyalgia, to name a few issues, you should try this program. It isn’t hard. I also went off caffine and salt.

For dogs and cats you don’t want to do sugar at all. A little non processed carbohydrate is probably ok as long as the animal is not overweight, arthritic etc. Otherwise go with the non-grain, rehydrated vegetable products above and non GMO meat.

For horses resist doing sugar or baked treats and instead give fresh fruits and veggies. For insulin resistant and laminitic horses do mainly apples. Also give them grass hay in slow feeders and lots of movement.

Here is a good post about how to maintain a healthy horse


Other Things to Consider

EMF – protect yourself from cell phones, land lines, computers, smart meters and power boxes with the products from this site

Plastic containers – just say no and go to glass.

Vitamins – In general we need more vitamins and minerals. I take a plant based multi vitamin and mineral. According to author/physician Sherry Rogers, blood vessels are what keep you young and give you longevity. To protect them we need more magnesium (I do magnesium citrate powder), vitamin E (but you have to get the natural kind), vitamin C, and vitamin A.



Gardening on a Toxic Earth
Here are some things you can do to make your garden healthier:
Make a protective cover over beds using UV resistant plastic (get online or at good nursery). This will protect against chem trail fallout.

Phytoremediation – Use plants to remove toxins from soil. Here are some ideas.

Plants for detoxifying your garden

Sunflowers to detoxify



Seedles – seed bombs . They have all kinds, like seeds bombs for butterflies.

How Can We Restore the Earth?
In the end we will have to find some way to restore health to the earth. When I worked in environmental science I did a lot of research and field work in restoration. I am certain that there is no technique currently available for restoring a pacific ocean that is radioactive, the gulf of mexico riddled with corexit, oil and synthetic microbes, water tables polluted by fracking, the entire earth covered in sprayed metal nanoparticulates. It is depressing yes and daunting. I believe however, that we have more hidden power than we know. It might just be possible with enough of using energy healing that we could to detoxify the earth, and restore the balance. Dr Emoto did such an experiment on a lake in Japan. Enough people are waking up now that we may soon have the critical number working on this aspect. It is also true that we need a worldwide regime change – getting the banksters and corporations out of control of our lives.

So for now educate, stay active , demonstrate, call , write emails, sign petitions .. do everything you can for the earth and the animals, and think about doing some of the following metaphysical practices that are outside of the box:

Energy healing – Work alone or with friends to send energy healing to places that need it and to the earth as a whole.



Orgonite – Orgonite was developed by Wilhelm Reich. It is a manmade assemblage of natural substances that creates balance, harmony and positive energy. It is made of resin, crystals and metal. You can use it to neutralize the energy from cell towers, help protect against chemical spraying, protect against EMF and even detoxify.  Read more here on what orgonite is and what it can do. Order some orgonite.

Dowsing to shift energy – Here is a blog I did about how to use pendulum dowsing to shift energy. 

Please share what you do to protect yourself and your animals. And share this blog if you think someone you know would like it. cheers!


Time to catch up. A lot has been happening, to say the least! I guess we all decided to be here at this time, but really I never stop asking myself if I really meant to do this.

Where I Will Be Teaching

I was going to teach a week intensive in Holland but I cancelled that trip. There is too much uncertainty in crossing borders at present for me to take the risk of doing it. Anyone who is a critic of the government (that would be me) could be detained and harassed, and many people are experiencing that. Any kind of delay could then mean having to cancel or delay the classes and that would not work. I have had so much stress lately that I just could not see taking that on. So sorry to all my students in Holland. Here is where I will be teaching in person:

My Farm
I am finally coming up for air after my move further north in California. Here is a photo of my new place, about half finished and painted – YAY! Lots more to do inside but progress is being made.

Here is a short video of my horses

About that Novel
i mentioned that I was going to try my hand at writing a novel. I did finish a chapter and sent it to a number of people to read. I got excellent comments back that convinced me that writing a novel is a full time job. I need to start over and do it right, but I’m not independently wealthy, I have to work, and I won’t have time. So that project is on hold for now.

What the Heck Happened in the US?

The election was compromised and the US is now in the control of a bizarre billionaire family. Here is an NPR program on the billionaires behind Trump.

I do realize that some people reading this blog may still be Trump supporters, and if that is the case, I would say, you need to go find some good sources to tell you what this administration is really doing. For example, I don’t think most Trump supporters have heard that this administration just ok’d aerial killing of wolves and bears, shooting and gassing wolf puppies and bear cubs in dens, dumping coal ash in streams, removing all air and water protection laws, closing the EPA, drilling and fracking on national parks and national wildlife sanctuaries, using lead shot (that poisons eagles and wildlife). And on and on. Really.. that is just for starters.

Here are some ideas for how to act in these times:

    • Write letters to the editor… I plan to do this weekly and pick one issue, like killing baby bears, per week. Because truly people do not know about what is happening. If they only listen to Fox News, or right wing, or Christian radio, they will not know what is truly happening.
    • Join one of these groups    #resist   indivisible
    • Run for something
    • Find a friend and do deep canvassing door to door.
    • Do energy healing and dowsing to shift the situation. Link to my blog on how to dowse to shift energy.

And here is something to lift your spirits: A rare sighting of a dog bird.

Holiday Cheer

Hope you are having a happy holiday. It is possible to find a bit of beauty and joy! For example, here is a redo of  the Drifters version of White Christmas, as channeled by the Navy (weird, but they are almost better than the Drifters … amazing).


And here is a rhumba version of Beethoven – increible!  Beethoven in Havana


Your Questions

Answers to some questions submitted by students, clients and readers over the past few months.


Can You Spell Treat?

This is my blue tick beagle dog,  Norman, running around in my yard and then charging over when I say ” Want a treat”. He is 15 now and still acts like he is two. What is the secret? Organic real food diet and holistic care. If you want to schedule a half hour session with me I can discuss with you how I manage my dogs, cats and horses and get you the links to the holistic  resources I use.


Start the Year Right – Follow Your Dream
I believe that if you do what your heart is calling you to do, you will be happy in life. My heart is now saying, do the novel do the novel.. and yes I am working on it. If your heart is telling to you do Animal Communication, just know that it is possible for you to get good at it and do it as a business if that is your dream. People in my Animal Communicator Master Training Program are gaining amazing confidence and expertise and moving really quickly through the program, some have completed it in 4 to 6 months. Here is the link to the description of my Animal Communicator Master Training Program. If you want to discuss the program please get in touch.


Horse Leaders

The link that follows is a blog post that suggests that horses don’t really have a hierarchy in the wild. Link to post about horse leadership  While I agree that competition for food and therefore aggression in the herd is probably low in wild horses, I do believe there is a hierarchy that is part of herd protection behavior, which exists in all herds – wild and domestic. The lead horses watch out for the rest of the herd and will sound the alarm if there is danger. The lead horses therefore must be heeded and if a horse does not watch for these cues the leaders will nip, chase or otherwise set the inattentive member straight, basically saying… ‘You need to keep an eye out for me’. This is the theory behind the techniques of my favorite trainer, Carolyn Resnick   who spent three summers as a teen observing and hanging out with a herd of wild horses in Southern California. To learn more about her amazing adventure,  read her book, Naked Liberty. Her training uses the behaviors she observed in wild horse interactions to get your horse to see you as a leader. Her technique is completely nonviolent and does not involve using halters or lead ropes or round pens.


Deer and Christmas


Graphic is from article below.

Here is an interesting article about  deer in prehistory and their significance as a symbol, especially at wintertime.

Of course like everything else now , reindeer are endangered….


Hope for the New Year

Against all odds I do have hope that the new year will bring good tidings. If for no other reason than that a whole lot of people have woken up to what is going on on and to the earth. I continue to say that whatever happens to save this planet will have to be something “out of the box” It is my hope that 2017 will bring those solutions.


Please comment on this blog if you have something to say. Also send me your questions. I love questions!

Share if you like… cheers
