Living with animals can be a wonderful experience, especially if we choose to
learn the valuable lessons animals teach through their natural enthusiasm,
grace, resourcefulness, affection and forgiveness.

In memory of Baxter, King of his Domain
Bax and his buddies doing what they
love most... being water dogs!
I want to thank all of the clients who have provided me with such touching testimonials. For people visiting my site for the first time, I've added the story about what was going on with the animals before the session. I feel
first-time visitors to my site will find this helpful and informative.
As I prepared for this session, three things came to mind immediately.  A Gorilla, a Bunny and the words Water dog kept repeating.  When my client called, I told her
this and she said she walked with the Gorillas in the rain forest of Africa, her dog Baxter loved to chase rabbits and had lived on an island and wanted to be a water
dog again.  That was going to be her first question.  Did Bax miss the water and he did.

Lilly and her "fur babies"
When contacted by this client, she had lost her dog just two months ago and his doggy brother Joey was missing him like crazy. She adopted little Lilly to keep Joey
company in the hopes that it would calm his separation anxiety. As we found out during the session, Lilly had separation anxiety of her own and with the two of them
combined, it became a huge problem. My client was getting complaints from the neighbors that the dogs were barking most of the day. This combined with her grief
want to state clearly that I am not opposed to conventional training but barking modification is usually only successful when the human is present. Joey was torn and
confused. Should I miss my brother? Should I be taking care of my Mom? What do I do to take care of Lilly? All this when he should enjoy being Joey and enjoying
his new sister. I told Joey of course he was allowed to miss his brother but he was not the man of the entire family. His Mom is the big one and he and Lilly are the
little ones. It's her responsibility to see that they are all taken care of, including herself. Lilly was grieving and anxious because her puppies were taken away from her
too soon. She was still hormonal and still lactating. My client told me she had taken to sitting on her stuffed animals as substitutes for her babies whom she missed
terribly. I told Lilly that was perfectly fine. We do what we need to to get over our grief. Joey and Lilly have made amazing progress since our session. No more
excessive barking. No more stress and anxiety. Mom is much happier and relaxed as well. This family is on their way to healing and I'm glad I could be part of it.
I was referred to Karen for help in dealing with the loss of a pet ~ he left behind a brother, Joey, who was grieving and suffering from separation anxiety.  Karen
spent an hour with Joey, Lilly and I and very calmly helped all of us to realize that our house was full of stressful energy and sadness, and gave us suggestions
and exercises  to help calm our lives down.  With her guidance and amazing insight, Joey has made great strides in overcoming his grief and enjoying his life
again.  He is calmer, and happier ~  with the brightness back in his eyes.  We recently welcomed a new little girl pup into our lives, Lilly.  While she came to us
with her share of “baggage”, we have no doubt she will fit right in….with the help of Karen, of course.  Lisa, September 2014
I so enjoyed hearing the story of my client's amazing experience of walking with the Gorillas.  Suddenly she came across a Silverback and his family.  The Gorilla
approached her. Silverbacks usually kill anyone near their family but he only pushed her to the ground.  She often was trapped in Africa. People scheduled for
execution knocked on her door and asked for sanctuary. She could not turn them away. Daily the Rwandan soldiers did house-to-house searches and she never
understood why they never came to her door except for the power of prayer. Not so. The Silverback later told me that he saved her life on that mountain to prepare
her for just this purpose. He said he sent the energy of Silverbacks that had gone before him to surround the house with their energy. Her encounter with the
Silverback now made sense. In her words, brought life back to him that my client hadn't seen in awhile.

I really appreciate Karen's gift.  She not only saw into my Baxter's life but she saw significant passages into mine as well.  She helped me see King Bax for
who he is and what he loves.  Her insight helped Bax make his needs known to me and I have acted on them which has resulted in a much happier Baxter.  
Thank you Karen for your kindness and patient help.  His majesty Bax thanks you too!  July 2014
I'm so happy that I had an animal communication session with Karen. She has amazing abilities that can help many people. She certainly helped me. Grieving the loss of my first pet was
devastating.  I felt so much guilt which made the grieving process more difficult.  I wanted to bring another animal in my life but was hesitating.
Karen is able to read between the lines and she said my guilt was a pattern in my life especially at work.  I had a person at work that was constantly trying to undermine me.  When Karen
picked up on that, I viewed the situation differently. I now focus on my strengths and talents rather than the negative energy of this person.  I feel that a weight has been lifted since our
session and I am viewing aspects of my life differently.  I am thankful to have a new animal in my life. I feel lighter and more peaceful since our session. Thank you Karen. This whole
experience has been such a blessing.

Karen is amazing! We had been dealing with house training problems with our 18-month old puppy and despite all of our efforts weren’t seeing any results. Because of her personalized, loving and attentive work our puppy is
fully house trained! Karen did a home visit with us where she spent an extensive amount of time getting to know us, our puppy and the environment. She spoke lovingly
and clearly to him. She also gave us a lot of good ideas and followed up with even more afterwards. It was extraordinary to watch the immediate differences with our puppy’s behavior following Karen’s visit. Right away we
noticed that he was starting to eliminate in the backyard and within a few days it was his new routine. Now, it’s normal. What a huge difference!  Karen’s gift of communicating with animals is amazing and tangible results come
from it. Her true love for animals shines through in how she works with them with such respect and affection.
I highly recommend her and will definitely hire her again.  ~ Heather, 2016

Best Buddies!
Karen Muranko came to my home recently because my two terriers, although trained 5 years ago for walking and potty training, were having some seemingly
anxiety-related behavior problems. My boy Wilson would bark when someone came in and he always had to have all the attention and my girl Kali would become
possessive of other humans to the point that if the dogs wanted to get attention from their humans, Kali would nip at the dogs. They also had major challenges staying
down and off people's legs.  Karen had some conversing and listening time with them and recommended I get Calms - a homeopathic relaxation remedy - and both the
dogs and I take it in the morning and evening. She also recommended some gentle behavior modification techniques to practice. So far, so good. Everyone is way
calmed down and we are heading toward mending.I highly recommend Karen for any animal behavior challenges you may be having. Call it a crazy technique, belief or
whatever but what I would say is this, it's worth giving animal communication a try rather than to keep scolding your animals.

In early January 2011 after an illness that accelerated very rapidly, my dear cat Cleo of fourteen years made her transition. I had Cleo since she was smaller than the
palm of my hand and our bond was priceless. The grieving process for me was made more difficult by the speed and magnitude of her condition.  A dear friend of mine
had contacted Karen and used her services to resolve some behavioral problems she encountered with her two dogs.

A couple of weeks after Cleo's passing, she suggested I call Karen and see if there might be some way that Karen could assist in enriching my grieving process. I had
no idea what to expect but knew that I was open to any help available. I called Karen and was immediately at ease and felt a very peaceful connection. We set up a
telephone appointment for the following week. In the interim, I received an email from Karen telling me of something that had dashed through her mind from Cleo. It was
perfect. The thought was so personal and so endearing that I was even more open hearted and open minded about the upcoming call.

Karen spent an hour on the telephone with me and it was amazing. The impulse, the intuition, the clarity of her gift in communicating with Cleo gave me an enormous
sense of relief through her beautifully calming spirit. The time we shared helped me to more tangibly grasp the depth of my connection with this incredible cat and how
to allow for the completion of my time with her.

It is now early June 2011 and I recently felt the timing to be right for bringing new energy into my home. Through a most beautiful and synchronistic flow of events, Karen
introduced me to sweet Gracie, a stray cat she had been caring for. I so appreciate the gifts that Karen has brought to my life experience and I know you will too!

It is a pleasure to work with Karen and honestly, it is difficult to put into words what I feel for her, so I will share with you through a story. I had the good fortune of meeting
Karen during a very stressful time in my life. My doggie/son of 16 years named Diego had not been doing well, and she helped me understand exactly how Diego was
feeling and what he needed.

After Diego went to Heaven, she reassured me that he was very happy and that he wanted me to be happy also. Karen shared with me that Diego told her that he
wanted me to keep helping and loving dogs and other animals, and that he really didn't want me to close my heart to other animals because of the enormous pain that I
was feeling for his loss.

Karen told me that Diego wanted me to give another animal in need the opportunity of giving him/her a home and my love, just as I had to Diego. With the enormous
pain that I was feeling, at that moment the thought of bringing another animal into my life seemed impossible to consider ...Nevertheless, I have fallen in love with
another beautiful doggie/son, Nova, who had been living in the streets of Mexico City before he was rescued. Nova does not have the use of his back legs and runs like
the wind in his new wheelchair. Nova is continuing to help with the healing, which Karen had started. In order to help pay back Nova all that he has already given to me, I
am looking forward to continuing to work with Karen to help me understand what he is feeling and how I can continue to make his life even better. Thank you bella!!!
