My first purposeful and successful animal communication was with the shingles virus. I discovered a great truth in that encounter.

Before 2015, scientists did not think viruses were alive. Last year, they decided they were living organisms. So I can finally call my tale an animal communication story.

Remote healing – Virginia to South Carolina

I was working with my mother-in-law, Pat, practicing remote energy healing. We’d get on the phone 3 times a week and I’d work on whatever ailed her. I really enjoyed our time together.


One time I asked, “What’s going on?” She had shingles, which can feel like your skin is on fire. Pat was pretty uncomfortable.

Maribeth goes to war

I enlisted her antibodies with the intention of going to war to clear out the virus. I gave it my all, trying to blast it out. In our next chat, I asked how it had gone.

“Worst night of my life!” she exclaimed.

Well that was a shock – not the outcome I anticipated.

I reconsider my methods

I tried a different approach. I imagined that I was hosting an ice cream social outside – lots of flavors of ice cream, a picnic table, trees for shade. I invited the virus and the antibodies to my party.

I told the virus, “Obviously, you aren’t going anywhere! But consider that Pat’s body is your home. The longer she is comfortable, the longer you have a home. How about going dormant and just enjoying what you have?”

I asked the antibodies to call off their “5-alarm fire” response, pull back and allow the virus to go quiet.

Pat’s next report was that she had gotten her first good night’s sleep since the outbreak. There were no more shingles episodes the rest of her time on earth.

Lesson learned – respect, love & playfulness produce positive results

I now come from a place of respect, love and playfulness when communicating with animals. It makes a huge difference!
