My Books About Animals

Writing is something I have always done. It has a cathartic benefit, as well serving as a fulfilling, creative outlet. Do you enjoy writing?

I love to write! Expressing myself through the written word began with poetry when I was a very young child. I enjoyed writing both long and short poems, including the very short form of Japanese poetry known as Haiku. Some, but not all the verses in my poems were in rhyme.

My poetic explorations expanded to short stories, sometimes comedic, but often dramatic. I then added vocalizing my creative thought in the form of songs. I was awarded my first and only writing award when in the first grade. Although when my first article was published in a magazine, I did feel like that was a bit of an award! It was an exciting day for me, as it had been a long term goal to see my writing in print.

While I appreciate old school methods, the invention of computers has helped make the writing and book making process easier.

Writing is not only a creative expression, but it has become a way for me to further engage and educate. I have wanted to expand my writing projects to publishing my books for some time. Though I have considered traditional publishing methods, self-publishing is my main area of interest. Actually, in this day and age I am primarily interested in starting with ebooks. Printed book options may come later.

Being able to create ebooks is such an awesome option and opportunity! It’s a way for any of us to put our ideas out into the world with little to no financial investment. This fact takes away at least one excuse that some of us humans use to keep us from doing things that we say we want to do and that is, lack of money.

Over the years, in addition to blogging I have had multiple articles published about animal communication, dog and cat nutrition, holistic pet care and other topics. I was happy to have my articles appear in San Diego Pets Magazine before the publication was purchased by the San Diego Humane Society. More recently my articles were published in the Seattle based CityDog Magazine, which is also distributed in the Portland, Oregon area.

I’m currently working on two different books. Both are on the topic of animals. Surprise! If you have any questions about either project you are welcome to contact me at sindi@apetpsychic.com or call me at 360-601-4358.

I love writing for children and reading children’s books, including anything by Dr. Seuss!

One of my upcoming ebooks is a children’s book. The first draft has been finished. I had the opportunity to read it at Barnes & Noble in Vancouver, Washington to a group of elementary school students and their parents and teachers. It was fun! I need to do a little more editing and then complete the ebook creation and uploading process.

The other aforementioned book is the preliminary process with hopes of completion in the next month. It is a book of information to help humans with different aspects of relating to their dogs. In addition to humane training tips for common canine behavior issues, it includes information about dog nutrition, pet wellness, holistic care and other tips for your canine friends’ overall well-being. Don’t worry cat people, I will be writing one for you too. Those with other species of animal friends, stay tuned! I haven’t forgotten you either! So many animals, such a fun time!

If you are interested in pre-ordering either ebook and learning more about what I’m meowing and barking about, let me know.

I am currently in the San Diego area, offering in-person sessions and readings throughout Southern California. I am pre-booking sessions in the Pacific Northwest preparing for my June return to the area. I will be traveling through Oregon and then southern Washington and back up to Seattle and northwestern Washington.

If I can be of help to you and your wild and/or tame animal friends don’t hesitate to contact me.  Thank you for reading my blog!

May 2018 – I’m Still Here, San Diego!

What beauty is in San Diego! I love seeing seagulls so often here.

What started out as a short working road trip has become an extended working vacation for me in San Diego. I had a wish to stay longer and I am so grateful as to how it has manifested. I will continue to offer in-person, home visits throughout San Diego County, as well as Orange, Riverside and Los Angeles Counties during my stay through May and into the beginning of June.

If you are looking for information, support, insight and assistance with any of your animal friends, let me know. I’m here to help! Whether in-person in southern California or anywhere with long-distance sessions. I am scheduling in-person readings now in Oregon and Washington state for June sessions.

I got the job!

I look forward to continuing my work with animals and their people in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

I look forward to continuing my work with animals and their people in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

Long story short… I got the job! Okay. So you may not have known that I was up for a specific job, but I was and I am over the top excited that I got it!

Now for the long story, for those that enjoy details and especially those that believe, like me that everything happens for a reason and other woo-woo perspectives. 😉 It also is a great example of being in the present moment and going with the flow. What helped me to do both of those things was using the simple, powerful meditative, visualization technique of grounding!

I visited the most beautiful rest area I have ever seen just north of Grants Pass, Oregon.

Monday, May 25 – I crossed the border from California into Oregon. As I enjoyed the lush green trees, I kept saying to myself, “I could live here!” My actual destination was Washington State, which I loved and still love. Washington is where I lived the majority of my life. However, when I arrived at my friend’s house in Beaverton, Oregon, where I was planning to stay for just a couple of days, I decided that I should look into the possibility of living in the area, instead of continuing on to Washington. That night I looked on craigslist for job possibilities. I saw a number of jobs that I felt I might be qualified for. However, it was one job in particular that got my attention! I was very excited and felt motivated to move forward with applying.

Tuesday, May 26 – I wrote a personalized cover letter, specifically for that one position. I attached my resume and applied for that one job and only that one job. The job that I felt was made for me and perhaps was the reason I had ended up in Beaverton, Oregon.

Wednesday, May 27 – I received a phone call from the owner of the store, wanting to schedule an interview with me. Of course I said yes! It was scheduled for the following Monday.

Monday, June 1 – What a great way to start a new month, with an interview for a job I could not believe was available in the area where I was staying and the week that I had arrived! I interviewed with three animal loving people and felt that all went well, though it can be hard to tell with interviews. I decided to remain optimistic.

Tuesday, June 2 – I was called for a second interview, which was scheduled for Thursday.

Thursday, June 4 – I felt that the second interview went great. The four of us seemed like a great match! But you never know for sure and interviews can always bring up insecurities and doubt. I did my best to stay in the present moment, have faith and allow whatever was meant to be and was most beneficial to just happen. I emailed my references, as requested and then sent a thank you card to the store owner.

So excited that we will be carrying Answers Raw Goat's Milk for cats and dogs!

We will be carrying Answers Raw Goat’s Milk for cats & dogs at our store in Tigard, OR! Yay!

Tuesday, June 9 – I received a call offering me the job! The owner went over the details and I again, of course, said YES!!! I am going to be the store manager for a brand new pet supply store opening in July. It is located in Tigard, Oregon, which is less than ten minutes from where I am currently staying in Beaverton!! Coincidence? No such thing!! Did I mention that I am over the top excited?!

Wednesday, June 10 – I started my role, by helping with the interviewing process to select our retail staff. We will be doing more of that next week. Woo hoo!

So in case you were wondering, I definitely will be staying in Oregon. I will still be teaching continuing education classes in Centralia, WA in July and August at Centralia College. The commute isn’t too far. I’m sure I’ll be making other visits to Washington too, so I hope to see some of you reading this later this year!! Yay! P.S. My classes are on page five of the course catalog that can be found on this link.

Please Note: I will still be offering private, long distance animal communication sessions and readings and nutrition consultations and holistic pet care sessions. I will be doing in person appointments in Beaverton, Tigard, Gresham, Aloha, Lake Oswego, Newberg, Hillsboro, Salem and Portland, Oregon and surrounding areas, including Camas, Salmon Creek, Minnehaha and Vancouver, Washington. Remember I’ll be traveling to Centralia, WA once a week starting on July 25th too! I will also be visiting Chehalis, Olympia, Federal Way, Tacoma, Everett and Seattle, Washington and adjacent cities soon.

P.S. If you or someone you know happens to be in the Tigard/Beaverton/Portland area, I hope to see you/them at the store in July or after! I’ll keep you posted, as things unfold. Thank you for reading the long version of my story!

P.P.S. If you want to learn to meditate and experience the sometimes hard to believe results of using life changing meditation techniques like grounding, contact me! You may want to consider joining my Wild and Tame Meditation Club. More information can be found here on my website on the Meditation menu tab at this link. Join The Club! 😉

Today is a rainy, and therefore a relaxing Monday following a day off for me and Rock on Sunday. Downtime is important. We need to allow the body time to rest and rejuvenate.

Meditation is a wonderful way to take time for yourself. Sleep is also important. Meditation assists with our healing process, as does sleep. I enjoy both.

I also enjoy warm beverages on cold days. So today I will be going to Starbucks to cash in on my free birthday drink. Starbucks has coconut milk available now. I tried it in a hot chocolate and it was so delicious! I’m thinking in that direction again today, although a coconut milk Mocha sounds pretty  amazing too. Hmmmm…

Starbucks now offers a delicious coconut milk option!

Starbucks now offers a delicious coconut milk option! I love it!

Another new thing I’m excited about is that I will be doing my first ever event at Whole Foods Market! If you aren’t familiar with Whole Foods, it is a natural, health focused grocery store chain. They have abundant organic items, including beautiful produce. I love their tasty, fresh deli items too! It is easy to walk out of there with a more than initially intended because everything looks so good!

My Holistic Pet Care and Animal Communication presentation and demonstration will be on Wednesday, March 11 at 6:00 PM. It’s FREE and open to the public. With the exception of certified service animals, this event is for humans only.

Just as fresh food does our bodies good, the same is for our animal friends. Choosing a species appropriate diet in the freshest form possible will provide great benefits!

Holistic Pet Care

Although the word “holistic,” is often used in place of “natural” or “organic,” it actually means whole. When partnered with the word “care,” as in “holistic care,” it means care of the whole person or whole animal.

When talking about the “whole” person or companion animal, some use the grouping of, body, mind and spirit. Since the mind, or brain, is a part of the body, I simplify it a little. I address, communicate with and help treat body and spirit or the body and the soul.

Energy healing, doggie massage and T-Touch techniques.I have seen seemingly miraculous changes occur through the use of animal communication, energy healing and reading. I can say the same for implementing new dietary approaches, food sources and supplement usage.

I am so excited to be presenting Holistic Cat Care 101 and Holistic Dog Care 101 in October of this year in San Diego. In both classes, I will share what I have learned in my many years of assisting my own pets, as well as the companion animals of others. The first hour will be jam packed with helpful information that you can start using immediately to improve the quality of your pets’ lives. Nutrition, supplements, relaxation techniques and more will be presented in the first hour. Following a half hour break, I will have a short Q & A followed by a live, public animal communication demonstration. Several participants will have the opportunity to ask me questions about their pets.

If you want your companion animal to be as happy and healthy as possible and/or you want to see a pet psychic in action, these are the classes for you!

Holistic Cat Care 101 will be all about cats and Holistic Dog Care 101 will focus on dogs. Attend one or both! A discount applies to those choosing to attend both workshops.

Both classes will be held in the Loomis Auditorium at the San Diego Humane Society’s Central Campus at 5500 Gaines St., in San Diego. Email me at Sindi@APetPsychic.com for additional information and to register for either or both classes. Thanks and I hope to see you soon! -Sindi

8.13.2012 – Psychic Meditation

Although I do a lot of different things, everything I do links together. I offer animal communication sessions, energy healing and psychic reading for people and pets, as well as wild animals. I additionally assist with animal behavior, cat and dog nutrition and training. The foundation of everything that I do is based in meditation. It assists me in my personal life, as well as my work relating to people and animals.

You can make any moment a meditation.

When I give a person information during a reading and they want tools to let go, make changes and heal themselves, I suggest meditation. There are many forms of meditation. I encourage people to find a form that resonates with them. What has changed my life is a unique style of meditation that uses visualization techniques to help the meditator to focus in the present moment and work in harmony with their body.

Although I learned this style of energy focused meditation here in the United States, and some may label it as a “new age” teaching, these are not new techniques. They were taught in the ancient mystery schools in Egypt and elsewhere, including where it is said that Jesus studied.

Seated meditation can be practiced anywhere!

Meditation can assist us people to be happier, healthier and more relaxed about life. The calmer we are, the calmer all around us will be, including our companion animals. The form of meditation that I teach and practice is an experiential self healing process that integrates spirit and body.

Psychic means spirit or of the soul. Because this is a soul based form of meditation, it could be termed psychic meditation. Perhaps a less charged title would be energetic or energy meditation. Whatever name it is given, I have found it to be life changing.

If you are interested in reducing stress, improving sleep, changing patterns, getting to know yourself and enhancing your relationships with others, you may wish to consider learning meditation.

8.6.2012 – Bunnies, Kitties and Dogs, Oh My!

Best friends, Sindi and Ginger.

I had a great weekend! To describe it in one word, I would say, “balance.” It included quiet times, lively times and both familiar and new experiences. It was balanced and it happened naturally and effortlessly. Some events were planned and some spontaneous.

I enjoyed quiet time at home with my dog, relaxing, meditating, playing and working. Equally joyful was my time with friends. This included a fun barbecue dinner at my neighbor’s, an adventurous girls night out and a visit with a friend and his new bunny to the House Rabbit Society in San Diego’s Kearny Mesa area. I also met my bunny friend’s two cute cats for the first time and had a home visit with new clients. My clients were very welcoming people; a wonderful family with two beautiful, sweet and loving German Shepherds. Our session was multi-faceted. It began with relaxing aura healings, which are a non-touch cleansing of the aura, chakras and energy system. The healings were followed by house cleansing a.k.a. ghost busting, psychic readings and animal communication sessions. What fun!

I love German Shepherds!

I feel so honored and grateful when people invite me to assist them on their journey. What I do can benefit anyone who is open to it, despite their spiritual beliefs. For me it is all a spiritual experience, but I understand not everyone has the same perspective.

The joy I feel when interacting with both human and animal clients comes from relating on a deeper soul level. Soul to soul. We are communicating in the most authentic way in a safe, neutral space allowing the letting go of facades. We communicate through mental image pictures, telepathy and what I term as, “the true energy underneath words.”

Some sessions are with people only, which I began in Western Washington State, while living in Seattle and areas north and south of there. Since moving to San Diego County I have become more known for my work with animals. I have a truly holistic approach to pet care. Holistic means whole and relates to wellness being a balance of the whole sum of all parts. Here’s one definition, courtesy of Wikepedia:

Holistic Health as Defined by Wikipedia.

Sindi doing a reading at Friends of Cats in El Cajon, California.

I get the information I need through energy communication. That can be experienced in many ways, including clairvoyance (clear seeing), telepathic (non-verbal) communication and other spiritual abilities. The main difference between traditional medical care and holistic care is what is considered. Although some health professionals are becoming more integrative, many in the medical field look solely at the physical symptoms and possible causes. A holistic approach more deeply considers the impact of emotional, psychological and spiritual imbalances, as well as physical issues. In fact, I believe that that which eventually manifests physically, initially was a problem in another area. Left unresolved, it festers and becomes more and more apparent on a physical level.

Living and working environments, past and present relationships and experiences, psychological stresses, emotional pain, spiritual dilemmas, as well as ineffective nutrition, lack of exercise and other physical aspects can all play a part in diminishing our well being.

I offer energy healing, psychic reading, animal communication and meditation instruction. My services can benefit people, pets, wild animals, farm animals and any living creature open to soul communication. In person sessions and classes are available throughout San Diego, Orange and Los Angeles Counties. Long distance services are provided anywhere in the United States and all over the world.

8.1.2012 – SD Humane Society!

Puppies, kittens, rabbits and love galore at the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA!

I have enjoyed my experiences with the San Diego Humane Society, including providing my services at their Doggie Cafes.

Held the last Friday of every month, this dog friendly event gives leashed, well-mannered canines the opportunity to socialize along with their people.

Being appreciated is always appreciated! I am grateful for the opportunity to help people and their animal companions. I am also grateful for the kind testimonial I received from them this week. I have included it below.

Sindi Somers from Wild and Tame Wellness and Communication has been a great addition to the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA Doggie Café programs!  She has volunteered her services to provide complimentary readings for the guess at occasional Doggie Café events.  This popular addition to our Cafes has added a fun, engaging component to the evening.  Thanks, Sindi!

I’ll be sure and let you know the next time I’m there. In the mean time, if you are in need of any of my services, please email sindi@wildtame.com or call 619-797-0705.

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog. Happy Wednesday and welcome to a new month! Ah… August! -Sindi

7.30.2012 – San Diego Humane Society

When I first visited the San Diego Humane Society I was impressed by how the dogs and cats available for adoption were housed. Instead of jail bars, cement floors and cramped cages, the environments for the canine and feline friends were home like. Cats were provided with the important multiple levels to perch on, including the always fun cat trees. Dogs quarters had the feel of a living room. Although they aren’t overly large, they are leaps and bounds above traditional kennels. It is not as painful to see the homeless cats and dogs there, as compared to other shelters and homeless animal care organizations. I still wish they had homes, but their transitional living space is less cold and deprived seeming, which makes it easier to tolerate when walking through and viewing the lovely creatures.

The San Diego Humane Society not only has healthy dogs, cats, rabbits and other animals available for adoption, but they also host educational events for the public. I personally have enjoyed attending their workshops and have learned about canine massage, T-Touch and holistic veterinary approaches.

The last Friday of every month the San Diego Humane Society also hosts their Doggie Cafe. This monthly happening gives dogs and their people an opportunity to socialize. The Humane Society positive reinforcement trainers provide training tips and there are also prize giveaways and people and dog treats. I had the honor of being the special guest at the Doggie Cafes in June and July. I provided psychic readings and animal communications sessions to participants. I have been involved in this capacity with this beneficial non-profit animal welfare organization for a couple of years now.
