Dog Chapel in Vermont

Feb. 15th 2013 10:51 AM

Welcome All Creeds, All Breeds, No Dogmas Allowed.

That’s the message you’ll see at the Dog Chapel on Dog Mountain in St. Johnsbury, Vermont.

The visionary was Stephen Huneck, an artist whose carvings grace the chapel along with stained glass windows with pictures of dogs. The church features a winged labrador on the steeple and the four pews are held up by life-sized carvings of seated dogs.

Messages of love abound and envelope visitors to the chapel offering inspiration for all, whether celebrating the joy of the bond between human and canine or grieving the loss of a beloved dog companion.

The 150 acre mountain-top farm is rich with wildlife and invites visitors to run free, play, swim and explore. It’s always open to the public. Special events are hosted at the Stephen Huneck Gallery on Dog Mountain at various times of the year. For more information, check out their website at dogmt(dot)com.

Imagine You Can Communicate With Animals And You Will

Feb. 2nd 2013 5:54 PM

Our imagination is a powerful tool that can open and expand our perceptions. If we cannot imagine that something is possible, then it does not exist for us. Perhaps you’ve seen the quote: “What could you accomplish if you knew you couldn’t fail?” Good question. The answer for each of us is infinite.

In terms of communicating with animals, I often remind my students to use their imagination if they feel blocked at some point while learning animal communication. Imagine that it is possible to receive a communication from an animal and to send a message telepathically to the animal. Of course, it is possible to receive and transmit messages with animals and we all have the ability to do it. However, if someone doesn’t believe they can communicate with animals, then this can inhibit their natural ability to do so. Our thoughts are very powerful. So, if you wish to communicate with animals, then it is important that you believe that you can do it. Connecting with your animal companions in this way will surely deepen your connection with one another. Give it a try. You’re animal friends will be happy you did.
