Meet Gina Palmer
What began as an experiment became
a way of life. Gina has favorite stories
that she shares with her students, offering metaphors and using
examples of her direct experiences in connecting with animals,
trees, stones, clouds and Nature Spirits. Gina emphasizes the
value of your own "direct experience" in her Advanced Workshops, and she has learned
that the direct experience is what students are really seeking.
She aims toward education in telepathic animal communication
in the Basic classes,
laying the foundation that prepares students for the advanced
work. She is currently writing her book, to be published in the
Fall of the year 2000. Gina keeps in touch with her students
and clients by publishing a quarterly "Paws & Claws Newsletter."
The newsletter is available to anyone wishing to subscribe
by phone or order form. Gina maintains that optimum health provides
optimum results, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. She
has researched and stocks most of the holistic
for animals and their people: animal
nutrition, flower essences, aroma therapy, color light and sound
therapy, and bovine colostrum.
Gina is available for private consultations
and telepathic communication sessions
by phone, including long distance, for clients with pets experiencing serious illness, decisions
about euthanasia, lost animals, behavior resolution, grief for
lost or deceased pets, senior animals, animals moving and transitioning,
and spiritual healing. You are free to tape-record
your live sessions if you wish.
Gina Palmer began her studies in telepathic
communication in Yucatan, Mexico, with Mayan
Record Keeper and Elder Hunbatz Men. She is a graduate student of well-known Animal
Communication Specialist, Penelope Smith. Gina is not only an
animal advocate, but also advocates and encourages other animal
communicators. She recognizes the strength and value in networking,
providing referrals to other animal communicators upon request.
Gina lives in San Diego, California,
with twenty-one animal companions and has traveled with several
of them for extended periods of time. Having traveled to the
sacred sites in Peru, Bolivia, the Yucatan, and many of the U.S.
energy vortexes, she has learned that the
greatest teachers of all are the animals, themselves.
Advanced studies in energy work within the environment of a natural
energy vortex or sacred site is incredibly rewarding. Gina periodically arranges for groups of advanced
students to travel together to global sites. If you
are interested in participating in national or international
journeys, call 760-630-0777
or e-mail our
office for the current schedule.
Background of Ginas Gift
I was part of a group of six
students studying in Yucatan, Mexico
with Hunbatz Men, Mayan Record Keeper and Elder. We
had traveled the sacred pyramids, learning how to open and work
with their energy. Hunbatz introduced us to the Mayan term "In Lakech" which,
roughly translated, means "I am another yourself."
In Lakech includes all species, all forms of matter,
stones, trees, etc., without separation.
After three days of working the
energy within various pyramids, Hunbatz prepared a special
ceremony atop the pyramid of Dzibilchaltun. The weather
that day was balmy, and several cumulus clouds hung lazily in
the Yucatan sky, giving the impression of gigantic cotton balls
suspended below the tapestry of blue sky. From the top of the
pyramid, we could look out over the lush greenscape which rolled
out in every direction far below us, seemingly unending. Hunbatz
asked us all to reach out and touch one particular cloud. Pointing
his index finger toward the sky, he instructed us to remain quiet
and feel the cloud through our heart center. He asked us to feel
the qualities of the cloud, its texture, color, size, and location.
He then instructed us to bring those qualities into ourselves
through the area between our eyebrows. He reminded us that the
cloud too was, In Lakech, and that all manifestation
is Spirit or the Activity of God. Hunbatz told us to ask the
cloud to dissipate, so we could verify for ourselves the loving
connection we had all established with it. The
cloud literally vanished right before our open eyes!
Later, Hunbatz explained that
the cloud had heard our intention and had simply agreed to participate
with our request to dissipate. I felt the connection in my body
the instant the cloud acknowledged our loving focus. Hunbatz
explained that the principles he was teaching us could be applied
in communication with all life, just as they had been in ancient
times with his people, before telephones and technology had become
the norm. He asked us to teach the rituals and the use of telepathic
communication to others upon our return home. Telepathic
communication is everyones birthright and is only waiting
to be re-awakened, just as it had been with us that

When I returned from the sojourn,
I realized that my senses had been heightened and that I was able to discern conversations with my
companion animals, and even the wild birds, trees,
and rocks. It felt as if I was hearing them from somewhere inside
myself. A conversation I had with my nine-year-old feline, Shera
Lee O Ma Ra, showed me how much my life had changed. Shera told
me that she had chosen me as a companion and that she had come
to be my teacher. She also said that I needed to take a sabbatical
from my ordinary existence and relinquish my identity as a business
woman, at least for a while. When I asked her to describe the
identity I was to assume, I heard her say "wanderer"
that I was to be in the world
"in a new way." I was to be a student of
nature and learn all that I could from "the Earth and all
of Natures creatures."
Initially, I greatly resisted
relinquishing the life that I had made for myself, my successes,
my home, friends, and social standing in my work. But, a little
at a time, I began my release, which culminated in selling my
home and most of my possessions and leaving my business. Prior to my trip to the Yucatan, I visited Macchu
Picchu, Cusco, Kusiyachyoc, and Pisac in Peru, Lake Titicaca
in Bolivia, and began my studies with a well-known animal communicator
in Point Reyes, California.
Over the next few years, I evolved into the person I had always believed
I truly was. The business woman I had been had helped
me raise two children as a single parent and afforded me the
opportunity to unfold naturally. Now I had to let go of this
identity and become a "wanderer."
Though my foreign travels had
put me in touch with Earths energy vortexes and sacred
spiritual sites, my real work specific to animal communication
emerged when I began to travel in a twenty-four-foot motor home
with my partner and my animal companions, miniature dachshund
Chuck; and three felines, Shera, Irish, and Mr. Ben. This experiment
became a way of life. The motor home journey awakened a sleeping
part of myself, and our experience was
filled with adventure, magic, and mysticism:
We met a whale and her baby
as she leaped out of the surf, as we walked along a remote beach
in the Guadeloupe dunes near Pismo, California
I met a pelican on the pier
in Santa Cruz who instructed me on how to locate him a fish
I found myself surrounded by nine deer
at dawn and dusk in New Mexico
We joined a construction crew of ants
for half a days work discovering what happens to a piece
of tinfoil placed in the path of working ants
We were reunited with Shera
on the road after she had been "missing" for seven
These and many, many other experiences
occurred on our journey. Our only responsibilities were defined
by our slogan: "no where to go, and all day to get there."
I learned that when we give the gift
of time to ourselves, ordinary experiences take on extraordinary
qualities for learning, living, and loving. The animals
taught me that animal communication
is a language of love, and that through loving ourselves
we experience the first rule of life: to thine own self be true.
Animals are loves ambassadors,
beloved teachers and masters of the unconditional and unbounded
aspects of beingness.
Communication is achieved through compassion, empathy, and full
presence. Animals can put us in touch with our authentic
power. To communicate with them is to literally stand in the
presence of love disguised in fur, feather, hoof, wing, paw,
and claw. They are masters in disguise. Animals
anoint, bless, cleanse, and restore wholeness. They
return us to the sacredness of the earth, teaching us the art
To the degree that one
is able to discern the aspect of Spirit through the physical
veil and to disconnect from mass consciousness and reconnect
to our essential Self and to Spirit, is the degree to which we
will be able to communicate with other forms of life. Whether
the object of our communication be animal, vegetable, mineral,
nature spirits, angels, clouds, or the true self of fellow human
beings, we can only have genuine communication from a place of
egolessness and Spirit centered awareness.
(Quote from fellow
animal communicator, Sharon Callahan)
What We Do Now
We live high on a hill in Southern
California with a view of the Pacific Ocean, oriented in such
a way that the moonrise and sunset hang opposite one another
at dawn and dusk. We work with the elements of Earth, Water,
Air, and with our twenty-one animal
companions dove, quail, canine, feline, chicken, reptile,
and parakeet who continue to teach us while
we work with students who come to the sanctuary to learn basic
and advanced skills in animal communication. We offer group and private sessions, teaching
on totem power animals and
nature spirits. We give private animal
communication sessions by telephone to local and long-distance
clients, as well as in person. These can be tape-recorded. We
travel on request, delivering lectures,
classes, and seminars. We keep in touch with students
and clients through our quarterly newsletter,
Paws & Claws.
