For months now, I’ve been wanting to hire an animal communicator for Simon. I’m not chasing answers to any mystery problems, but I’ve been genuinely curious about animal communicators from the first moment I knew they were existed. At the time, I was saving money for the Europe trip that didn’t happen so I decided no communicator for me. Then everything went down with Tim, and my life became a bit chaotic financially… so the session slipped even further down the priority list.
A week or so ago, my grandmother sent me a check for $100 with a note that said,”I wasn’t sure to whether to donate to Austin Pets Alive or send this to you… so I sent it to you to use for a fun memorial.”
I thought, I know something fun… and made an appointment.
The short story? 30% of what she said was flat out wrong or too far fetched to believe, 50% was a “Hmmm… that sounds right,” and 20% was so accurate I was genuinely creeped out a little bit. Overall I would say that I am a believer and I would call again, but here are the details…
Before I start, let me say that I signed up for this appointment with my maiden name so she would not immediately find this blog. I also texted her images versus email so she never saw “Mauldin” anywhere. I sent her Simon’s name (Simon), his age (9) and two photos. One was the photo of him and I in the right hand column of my blog, and the 2nd was from the Dy’On photoshoot.
During the call I took 3 pages of notes. Below are what we talked about as well as my comments in bold.
When we first started the session, she said that first she would tell me the initial things Simon was offering her. Right off the bat she said that we have been together a short time, less than a year. This is incorrect, I’ve had him three years.
She told me that Simon is a reincarnation of an animal from my past – could have been one that I owned or a friend or neighbor’s animal. He does not necessarily have the same personality of that animal, but he wanted to be with my human energy again. She said this is a compliment to me. He wanted to come back and “try something different” and the timeline doesn’t exactly have to line up with death and birth because animals can “join into” other animals. This is pretty hocus pocus, but I haven’t ruled out reincarnation as a general idea. I did ride a horse named Doodles I was very close to as a kid, but there’s no telling.
Next he said that he wants to, “Play more, more, more!” I believe this. Home boy does not like a vigorous flat school session.
He is very full of emotion for me, and it made her tear up on the phone. His fondness of me is very heartfelt, and he is cheered up when I am around. I love this horse, so of course I want to believe this is true.
He sent her images of a dark cloud. It could be physical storms or emotional fear/worry. Well this is a super general statement, but I think anyone would describe my current situation as a dark cloud.
The word he chooses to describe himself is “Valiant.” Communicator said she didn’t know what this word meant and had never used it before (said she looked it up in the dictionary), so it 100% came from him. I can see him thinking that he is valiant – especially when he’s done well. Plus he’s always been a brave horse over fences. This made me smile.
He’s broken hearted about a young girl who used to ride him, and wants to know what happened to her. This is when I first got the “Oh snap” feeling. Simon was ridden by a teenager at his previous barn for at least a year before I got him. She was super gentle with him, and took him under her wing more than anyone else had. I hadn’t given any information to let the communicator know this at all.
She said she got a weird feeling in her teeth while talking to him, and thinks Simon should see a dentist. He also insists that he is 10, not 9. This is pretty bogus to me. He sees a great equine dentist every spring who told me “he had a lovely mouth”. I also have several official documents stating he is 9 years old… maybe he is confused 🙂
This animal communicator checks horses for trapped emotions. She described trapped emotions as something that occurs and is too much for the animal to overcome, so their subconscious traps the feeling. She claims to identify these emotions and then free them. Simon had two trapped emotions, which is unusual. The first is a lot of anxiety which she said came from when he was 7 or 8 years old and went through a thunderstorm in a horse trailer. The second is being overwhelmed, because when he was 6 or 7 he was ridden by someone who was emotionally abused and it was too much for him to handle. I can’t remember Simon ever being trailered in a thunderstorm, but it’s possible. He is quite an anxious horse overall, so that part makes sense. It’s also feasible that someone who was emotionally abused rode him before me, but I wouldn’t be able to make any claims to that.
These were her immediate thoughts/feelings from him, and took about twenty minutes to get through. Before we dived into my questions, she/he had two general questions for me. First, he asked what I thought of him. This is when I started to cry, because I am an emotional basketcase these days and I just kind of choked out, “He is the best.” She said that he “teared up” which I don’t really understand because last time I checked horses can’t cry… anyway.
Then he asked what my long term plans were with him. Would I be his forever home or not? I told him that although there may be a time in the future where I don’t ride him for a while or he might even go to another barn (like a lease situation), but I would always own him and he would always be my horse. I will make sure nothing bad ever happens to him.
“Simon” said that he wasn’t worried about that, but he was glad to know my plans. She said he had images of potential a future different rider, and that made him confused about what my intentions were. He was happy to know that he would be my “forever” horse. She said the next time I see Simon, he would greet me in a more affectionate way than normal and I would notice the difference.
The rest of the call was for my questions and some “back and forth” conversation, which were much more specific and gave me some “Ah ha” moments. This post has gotten quite long, so I’m going to break the post up into two parts. Stay tuned on Monday for the Simon “Q&A” session with the animal communicator!
