Last week I met a very special little dog named Banjo. His human moms reached out to me after he had recently been diagnosed with inoperable terminal cancer. They dearly wanted to have a chance to know what Banjo wanted to say before he transitioned from his body to the spirit world. As you can well imagine this was an emotionally charged and very difficult time for both of his human companions as they were preparing to say goodbye to their beloved little dog.
I was amazed at how much Banjo had to say and what a clear communicator he was. I always open the door to long distance communication with an animal several days before my actual session with him or her. It allows me to introduce myself to the animal and be able to communicate without any distractions. Banjo started by telling me more mundane things about his day to day life like how he really used to enjoy belly rubs, but could not anymore because of his condition, how the "purple berries" were his favorites and his impatience with being groomed but loving how handsome he looked afterwards. He showed me a black cat in his environment in conjunction with whom he used the word "stinker". He sent me a mental image of one of his moms that was so accurate I nearly fainted when I saw her as she opened the door when I arrived. He indicated the area in his body where he felt the most discomfort. Then he moved on to things that he wanted to have happen before he passed into spirit. He showed his paw print in clay set amongst the paw prints of the other animal companions in the house along with a hand print of both moms and their toddler daughter, creating a collage that they could have as a memory of their time together as a family. He said he wanted to be cremated and clearly showed me the two locations where he wanted some of his ashes to be spread and that he wanted some kept back so he could be close to his moms. He told his moms that he would quickly show up as a butterfly after he had crossed over so they would know that he was OK and was still with them. And something that was very important to him was that they spend some time together as a family each day that remained for him in the quiet that he dearly loved to have around him - no small feat for a house full of animals. The next step was getting together with his family for our scheduled session together.
Everything Banjo told me was correct and verifiable by his moms. They understood exactly where he wanted his ashes to be spread from the description he gave me. He described his character to a "T"! His paw print had already been taken and now they knew the next step was to get the collage together as he requested. And funniest of all for me was that there was indeed a black cat in the family whose name was Stinker! While we talked Banjo lay quietly in between his moms and me on the sofa listening to all that was said. During the session I also telepathically spoke with the two other very active, high energy dogs in the family impressing upon them how much Banjo needed to share still and quiet with them before he crossed over and asking them to do that with him to show him they understood. Within minutes they were up on the sofa and quietly lying one on each side of Banjo and then they fell asleep. His moms were dumbfounded and expressed that the dogs had never ever done that before.
It was a beautiful session with much space given for Banjo to say what he needed and wanted to say and share the contents of his heart while he still could in his physical form. He made sure that each and every family member knew how deeply he loved them, including Stinker, with whom he was very close. His moms expressed repeatedly the accuracy of the information that he had sent through and how things he said he wanted to happen were things they had sensed that he wanted with a couple of things they had no idea about thrown in for good measure.
When our time together came to an end I reached out and rested my hand ever so gently on Banjo's back. He turned and looked at me holding my gaze for quite some time and I could feel my heart centre infused with warmth as he sent through his thank you to me for facilitating communication with his moms and animal family. He then glanced back at his moms and held their gaze for an extended period, looked back at me then put his head down to sleep.
I received an email telling me that Banjo crossed over four days later. The email included this: "On our way to take his body to the vet a big beautiful butterfly flew in front of our car and I knew he was safe and his spirit was still with us."
I can tell you one thing... I will never forget Banjo. He may have been a small dog but he was a mighty soul who truly plucked the strings of my heart.
