motivation is compassion for all beings and a desire to help all species understand each
other better, particularly to help restore the lost human ability to

those that come to us for help, not judging, condemning, or invalidating them for their
mistakes or misunderstanding but honoring their desire for change and harmony.
We know that
to keep this work as pure and harmonious as possible requires that we continually grow
spiritually. We realize that telepathic communication can be clouded
or overlaid by our own unfulfilled emotions, critical judgments, or lack of love for self
and others. We walk in humility, willing to recognize and clear up our own errors
in understanding others communication (human and non-human alike).
knowledge and understanding of the dynamics of human, non-human, and interspecies behavior
and relationships, to increase the good results of our work. We get whatever education
and/or personal help we need to do our work effectively, with compassion, respect, joy,
We seek to
draw out the best in everyone and increase understanding toward mutual resolution of
problems. We go only where we are asked to help, so that others
are receptive and we truly can help. We respect the feelings and ideas of others and work
for interspecies understanding, not pitting one side against another but walking with
compassion for all. We acknowledge the things that we cannot change and continue where our
work can be most effective.
the privacy of people and animal companions we work with, and honor their desire for
our best to help, we allow others their own dignity and help them to help their animal
companions. We cultivate understanding and ability in others, rather than dependence on
our ability. We offer people ways to be involved in understanding and growth with their
fellow beings of other species.
acknowledge our limitations, seeking help from other professionals as needed. It is not
our job to name and treat diseases, and we refer people to veterinarians for diagnosis of
physical illness. We may relay animals ideas, feelings, pains, symptoms, as they
describe them or as we feel or perceive them, and this may be
helpful to veterinary health professionals. We may also assist through handling of
stresses, counseling, and other gentle healing methods. We
let clients decide for themselves how to work with healing their animal companions
distress, disease, or injury, given all the information available.
The goal of
any consultation, lecture, workshop, or interspecies experience is more communication,
balance, compassion, understanding, and communion among all beings. We follow our heart,
honoring the spirit and life of all beings as One.
