My name is Cindy Downing and I live smack in the middle of the United States with a English bulldog, a black lab mix and most importantly, a great husband. I grew up loving animals and wanting to be a veterinarian. Over the years, I have been blessed with beautiful relationships with my own four-legged family members. I came to realize that my connection with them was more of an emotional and spiritual relationship versus physical, which is why I turned my passion to relating to animals.
As I got older, I realized that I didn't have an overwhelming calling to become a vet, but my love of animals never went away. In fact, my love of animals grew stronger. I would talk to them and they would turn their heads at me like they truly understood me. It wasn't until later that I realized that they really DID understand me and that I could understand them, so my communication skills began.
I am truly blessed to have improved on my communication skills with the help of some fabulous teachers including Marta Williams. I now feel my purpose in life is to help other animal lovers and owners deepen their relationships with and understanding of the animals in their lives.
Once I began communicating with animals, I was blessed to have another window open and have the spirit world communicate with me. I have learned so many things from them and continue to learn something new every single day. I realized that when loved one's pass over, they are still around us and truly want to be a part of our lives. They love to be acknowledged when their loved ones realize they are still around.
When I communicate with animals or spirits, I do so with the utmost respect and compassion. I feel every conversation contains important messages. I have an open mind and an open heart when I communicate with them and consider myself to be truly privileged that they have chosen me to confide in. I tell the animals and spirits that anything they tell me will be held in the utmost confidence.
People ask me if I am able to do animal communication over the phone and the answer is YES. I like to have a photo of the animal in front of me and have the animal in a calm state while I talk to the owner on the phone. Sometimes, owners have put me on speakerphone and have commented that their animal got up and sat by the phone like they were talking to me. I am also able to do the communication via SKYPE and/or Facetime.
