Notes & Highlights

It is my pleasure each year to attend the Annual Walk for Paws to support the Animal Advocates of Howard County.

Ask Your Animals attended the 14th Annual Walk for Paws to support the Animal Advocates of Howard County

Last year we had beautiful weather and a great turn-out. There were dogs of all sizes and fun and games for all. I had the chance to meet a lot of new people this year and chat with them about the role that animal communication can play in our human/animal partnerships. I did personal consultations, handed out brochures and enjoyed all the activities going on in the main ring.

Please join me again next year to support this worthy cause.

Amazing Animal Connections

Marjorie recognized early on that the relationships that we share with our animal companions can be some of the most joyful, healing and non-judgmental connections in our lives.

She began her career as an Animal Communicator during the thousands of hours spent working one-on-one with the horses in her Equine Sports Massage practice.  She now shares these communication skills during personal consultations and classes with animal owners, trainers, enthusiasts and animal health professionals.

After graduating with a Business degree from the University of Maryland she pursued her career in “corporate America” strongly utilizing her primarily linear and logical senses.  She soon realized that she needed to balance the stresses of this lifestyle with the more nurturing and healing aspects of nature and Spirit.  This search led her to years of exploring our intuitive senses and the connections between science and Spirit.

She embarked upon her new career as a Licensed Massage Therapist and Bodyworker which included certification in Equine Sports Massage Therapy.  For over 18 years she has developed her human/horse massage practice with a focus on improving the competitive performance of the horse and rider team.

“all animals are thinking, feeling beings
who long to communicate their needs and perspectives”

She credits these horses for reawakening the knowledge in her that all animals are thinking, feeling, beings who long to communicate their needs and perspectives to their human companions.  With their kindness and patience these horses taught her that the animals are willing and able to communicate and it is we, the humans, who have forgotten how to listen effectively.

She began her process as a skeptic with the “show it to me” “prove it” attitude common to most linear thinkers.   Then set out on a journey of discovery that included independent study, formal training and hours of practice.  Now, years later, she has proven to herself time and time again that animal communication is a real and valuable process that produces well documented changes that improve animal well being.  For Marjorie, having an open mind has allowed learning beyond her expectations.

“having an open mind allows learning beyond your expectations”

It became clear to Marjorie that the behavior and performance challenges experienced between many riders and their horses went much deeper than just their physical pain or injury in either party. They are lacking mutual communication skills. These two individuals have come together to function as a precise working partnership yet they have little basis for effective communication; they have unique perspectives of their world based on their own dissimilar past experiences; their life priorities are quite different and they share no common language. The true success of any relationship depends on the development of clear, concise communication and mutual understanding. This is true of all relationships both human and non-human.

“We have few tools for mutual understanding”

How much success might a working partnership achieve between an adult from an Aboriginal tribe in Australia paired with a teenager from California? Where would they find common ground?

We have few tools for mutual understanding yet we expect harmony and success in our relationships with our companion animals, working dogs, competitive horses and captive wild animals in our care.

Animal communication can provide the link to build understanding in the same way that an interpreter facilitates understanding between parties that share no common language.

As a Professional Animal Communicator Marjorie now works with a diverse client base during personal consultations, classes and workshops to teach the value of enhanced mutual communication in human/animal relationships.

Telepathic Communication with Non-Verbal Adults

Marjorie now provides her telepathic communication services to the family and caretakers of non-verbal or Aphasic adults.

The American Heritage Dictionary defines Aphasia as:  Partial or total loss of the ability to articulate ideas or comprehend spoken or written language, resulting from damage to the brain caused by injury or disease.

Using the same skills and a similar technique as she does with her animal clients, Marjorie has been able to connect and communicate with adults that have lost their ability to speak following a stroke.

Family and caretakers can feel hopeless in their attempts to understand the needs of a loved one who can no longer speak, write or make familiar facial expressions.  In some cases, telepathic communication can overcome these physical limitations and access the thoughts, feelings and emotions that have become hidden.

A variety of questions can be addressed:

  • How do you feel?
  • Where does it hurt?
  • What food do you prefer?
  • Is this daily routine working for you?

These types of interactions can go a long way in alleviating the fear and loneliness that comes with aphasia and assist the caretakers in meeting the patient’s needs.

These comments come from a long term client of Marjorie’s:

“When my mom had her stroke in 2006 I was devastated.  I did not just lose contact with my mom, but also my best friend.  When she was not able to communicate I was desperate.  I knew she understood me but I had no way of knowing what she would want to say.  As a trained physician’s assistant, I had exhausted all of the ways I could think of and find, with no hope, and no successful communication.  It was then when I spoke with Marjorie.  If she could do this with animals, why not people? Desperate to speak with my mom I asked her if she would be willing to try to communicate with her.  Fortunately she said she would and we had our first conversation.  I think we all cried at some point.  I can personally say there is no way I would have been able to survive the past four years taking care of my mom without help from Marjorie.  She was our communicator, spiritual advisor and friend.  The fact that I could connect with my mom through Marjorie has been priceless and I could never repay her for the wonderful gift she gave:  allowing a mother and daughter to reconnect.  God Bless her!”  Audra

All clients, human and animal, will be treated with respect, integrity and compassion.

I will only conduct a communication session with express permission from the pet’s guardian.

I respect the privacy of all animals and their guardians.  Consultations will be conducted in complete confidence, and private details will not be shared without express permission.

I teach what I have learned in order to empower others in their own animal communication.

I strive to make a positive difference in the lives of the animals and the humans they care for.
