Today I have the great pleasure of chatting with international Animal Communicator & Author, Candi Cane Cooper.
- Tell us about yourself, please!
I’m an international Animal communicator and author working with animals worldwide here and across the rainbow bridge.
- It's pretty cool to see your ability to connect with animals, can you remember your first connection with one?
The first time I remember feeling different was when I was about 4 years old. I was talking with my Chihuahua Seymour, one night and he was in extreme pain. I woke my parents up and told them about it. They said I was just having a nightmare and to go back to sleep, everything was OK. The next morning he had to be rushed to the emergency room and he passed away. At that moment I knew I was different, very different.
- What happens to our animals once they pass on? Where do they go, what do they experience?
When I help an animal transition to the other side it is almost instantaneous. I do experience the sensation of euthanasia or if it is by natural causes. When they arrive to the other side they are free of the burden of their physical body and immediately have a tremendous amount of relief. All I can say is it's quite beautiful there as I visit sometimes several times a day during my sessions.
When I do connect with an animal on the other side the conversation flows just as easily as when they are here an hour to mention there is absolutely no difference. Honestly, though, there is so much to say on this subject. Please pick up a copy of my new book where I can go into much more detail and is devoted entirely to this subject, “ Afterlife Of Animals”
- What kinds of readings do people usually ask for during a reading session like this?
When I’m in session talking with an animal that has crossed over, the questions vary. But I would say mostly the human caretakers want to know if their animal had a good life. If they were happy in their home and sometimes they ask for forgiveness if they feel they had let their animal down . But for the most part it is very healing for both to reconnect and move forward with their relationship in a very spiritual way.
- How have things changed for you during the pandemic, and how have you adjusted?
During the pandemic I was very lucky to have this career. My workload / sessions actually doubled. I was kept so busy that it really helped me to cope daily with all the stress. Not really having too much time to let my mind go to darker places. I was very happy to see how everyone leaned on their animals for support and brought their inter-species relationships to new plateaus.
- What do you love the most about what you do?
The thing that I love most about my work is that everyday I get to be with the animals. Speaking for those who usually go unheard. It’s my honor to be their voice. I love my life, at sunrise, I cant wait to get up and start a new day, a new adventure !!!
- Any final words of wisdom or parting thoughts for our readers in these trying times?
In these difficult times, I can say, lean on your animals. They don’t have to be certified therapy animals to help you through the hard times. It may be your Turtle, your Bird, your Snake, your horse, dog, or cat. It really doesn’t matter as they are there for you just like you are always there for them.
Don’t be afraid to ask them for their support. Love is a two-way street and inter-species relations are no different.
Have you hugged your animals today?
