Ms. Getten kindly took time from her busy schedule to share with us
some of the messages she has received while communicating on a
heart-to-heart level with both wild and domestic animals.Mary Getten (f):
I am a professional
telepathic animal communicator.
I’ve spent the last 15 years talking
to people’s animals around the world and I do most of my work on the
phone. Telepathy is the universal language and so you don’t need to be
with an animal; time and space really doesn’t matter. I’ve spent more
than 25 years working with marine mammals and in my professional
I spend most of my time talking to domestic animals. HOST:
How did Ms. Getten become
involved in communicating with animals?Mary Getten (f):
yeah, you know I loved animals as a
child and I always wanted to work with animals. When I was in high
school I used to read every National Geographic about Jane Goodall.
how I got involved with animal communication was when I was working at
the Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito (USA).
This was in the
late 1980s. I met a teacher named Penelope Smith who is one of the
founders of animal communication. And so I took a class from her because
I thought if I could help at the Center talking to seals and sea lions
where we didn’t know what was wrong with them, I would be a big asset.
I was in the Bay Area,I moved up to the San Juan Islands in 1990, which
is an area of Washington State and British Columbia where there is a
resident population of close to 90 orcas.
And it was leading
whale watch trips and seeing these guys that really got me to start
working with my telepathic communication skills, because I wanted to
know about those whales – who they were and what they thought about and
all the questions that researchers can’t answer by just observing them.
realized that this is a way we can do research without all the grants
and the degrees is talking to them directly.
