If you ever want to know how your pet is feeling, thinking or need to communicate big life changes
such as a move, a break up, a vacation or a difficult unresolved situation, a pet reading is a great way
to minimize the stress for you animal and allow you to focus on what you need to do.
Animals are much happier if they are told of difficult family situations. They tend to get stressed
when we get stressed. Dogs, cats, horses, birds, reptiles or any domesticated species will want to help.
Pets appreciate the acknowledgment and information and always have a lot to say about your choices.
It is an easy way to begin to hear what you pet has to say and usually opens the door
to real communication with your furry friend.
Your pets are unique individuals. They sometimes have needs, wants and issues at home that need to be
communicated. If not, some of the situations quickly become very stressful for your animal. These needs
and wants can be quickly communicated and appropriate words and actions
can bring a measure of peace to your pet.
A Pet Reading gives you the chance to find out more about why your pet is behaving in a certain way, to ask
any questions you have about their health and wellbeing, or to simply find out what your pet wants to
say on a particular subject. Cats, dogs, birds, horses, snakes, fish…it doesn’t matter what type
of pet you have. Any animal is capable of sending thoughts to
communicate back to you and put your mind at ease.
Pet Readings are particularly useful if you are concerned about your pet and wish to hear their own
perspective on an issue – and as we all know, our friends in the animal kingdom certainly have
personalities of their own which are able to communicate very clearly what it is they want to say.
An animal communicator is a person who loves and cares about animals, someone who can be empathetic
and understanding of an animal's feelings. An animal communicator is a person who can convey
thoughts and feelings between an animal and a human. They act as a translator for your pet.
Most people know that mediums can communicate with loved ones. Luckily, their gifts aren't limited to humans.
In fact, there are numerous mediums who use their talents to connect with all types of animals who are walking
among us as well as those who have over. These type of mediums are animal communicators.
Animal communicators can communicate with the spirits of animals who have passed over and relay their
messages to their owners and friends. If you are grieving for your beloved little one who has passed into
the spirit world, a Pet Reading can also provide reassurance of their ongoing survival and offer you
signs which show they are doing well and even visit you from time to time.
If you're curious as to what your cat thought of your tender love and care as a pet parent, or just want to
know how your dog is faring on the other side, speaking to an animal communicator can help. Using their
gift they can communicate with your dear companion once they have crossed over. Hearing just a few
of your pets thoughts might be enough to help you get through the grieving process a little easier.
Our beloved pets will pass on and drop their physical body. The pain of this loss for their carers
is often overwhelming, whether a pet's death is sudden or expected.
When a pet dies, whether it is sudden or unexpected, the grief a person experiences can be devastating. Most
every animal you´ve lived with, be it a dog, cat, bird or any other species they will try to communicate and
visit with you after their passing. It is usually the depth of your grief that blocks this.
Dreams are a common way.
You may see their energetic form out of your peripheral vision.
Your nose may smell them as they spirit walk past you.
Your pet´s presence can be felt around the house or car sometimes. It is not your imagination. They really are
with you visiting, checking up or just being there for you. Have a silent chat with them.
Sometimes electrical disturbances occur. It could be your dog or cat or another
type of animal. Be aware of what you were thinking when it happened.
Bedtime is a common place to feel them snuggling with you energetically.
Especially if they slept on that bed.
If you have other pets, there is a strong possibility that your other animals can see them and
When pets get sick the first step is to take them to the Vet. Sometimes conditions are hard to
diagnose. Sometimes medications have side effects. Occasionally a condition can have a basis
in a toxic household substance or a severe emotion state.
Animals often have solutions for their condition. During an Animal Communication reading, a pet will
often refer their symptoms to the animal communicator when they tune into them. The animal communicator
will usually check out their energy body/aura for imbalances and listen to
what your pet has to say about their illness.
Remote pet energy healing is possible. Listening to what needs to change in their diet, specific
natural remedies are suggested and even telling them how important a particular medication is for
their well being can be part of the healing. This may or may not be a cure all, however you
will know exactly what your pet is experiencing and make decisions about
their health which includes your pets important input.
Animal communication is just that - communication. It is not a replacement for veterinary care.
The animal communicator can explain what your animal is feeling or where on his/her body there
is discomfort, but they cannot diagnose an illness or ailment. If something in you is telling you
to contact a veterinarian, do not hesitate; that could be your pet asking for help.
When a pet disappears it can be a very stressful time. After doing a good first search and then doing all standard things
- contact neighbours,vets, pounds, posters up, Facebook etc. You may sense or feel the need for extra assistance.
If so, see below for to book an email reading. We will arrange a meeting with the medium as
soon as possible - we understand the urgency of the situation and will try to assist however we can.
The medium prepares for this reading by tuning into your pet and looking through their eyes for visual
clues and listening to their story, getting as much information as they can. After they receive information
from your pet you will have your appointment with them. Especially in this type of reading it is
imperative that the medium has a photo of your dog so you will have to have one that
can be sent via email to them.
Animals have a deep electro – magnetic connection to the earth and to you. If you can stay calm when you talk
to your lost pet telepathically, it can help them to locate you. They can find their way home or tell you
where they are. However, sometimes their destiny will take another 'path.'
Pets get lost for many reasons and sadly none of them will make you feel better. Some dogs and cats just
like an adventure and don't realize the consequences of going out of their territory. Animals can lose their
way after a scare, a big noise, a threat from other animal or person, wandering in an unfamiliar area.
Some pets are sick and old want to be alone or in nature. Other pets disappear when we go on
vacation or long work trips. Some dogs and cats are stolen. Animals may not like it, but understand
we cannot be with them always. Make sure you tell them you are
going and will be back in however many days.
And, finally, if your pet is lost, an animal communicator may be able to help you find your beloved pet. As
in lost object readings, an animal communicator can perceive and convey images, smells and
sounds that can help you pinpoint the location of your lost animal.
Phobias, Anxiety, Emotional Disorders and Behaviour Issues
Pets can have behaviour issues that originate from many different experiences in their past, present and
occasionally in their genetic make up. When you bring a new pet into your home, especially a
rescued pet, this can also cause initial or continuing issues with your other pets.
Some pets become phobic or excessively fearful about doing particular things or hearing certain sounds. All
species have their biological nature, however they too experience trauma, illness, fear, confusion, abandonment
and other emotional states, in their own individual way. It is possible to de-stress and change behaviour of the
vast majority of pets quickly, when they communicate the reasons of why and when the behaviour began.
Dogs can have many types of behaviour problems. Usually occurring by trauma and issues from past situations. These experiences can trigger fearful, depressed, confused, obsessive or aggressive expression with other animals or people.
Pets can take on their carer´s emotional problems in an effort to help, however that
can end in very unnecessary stress for an animal.
Through an animal communication session, the first thing to do is find out from the dog about its past history,
it´s fears and confusion and any past trauma. Once a pet understands why and what behaviour is
unacceptable, a rapid transformation of the pet´s habits or destructive ways is common.
When Your Animal is dying, animal communication helps in farewell days.
The dying process especially can be transformed into much profound experience; the person can feel more peace and acceptance of his or her animal companions passing.
There is often much guilt and fear when an animal companion might be close to death.
Using an Animal Communication session
at those times can help people releive
their guilt and make the “letting go” much
easier for both.
Most owners want to know the last words
of their beloved animal companion and
made great effort to honour them
before the animal passed on.
Animal Communication is only a vehicle for animals to speak their wishes from their heart, sometimes
the animal's thinking may not be considered realistic and at some circumstances that you may not be
able to fulfil them, please do not feel bad about it. We can only do our best but sometimes we have
limitations. Your pet will not be angry or hate you if you have to make a decision that is different
from what they have communicated they would like to see transpire. Your pet will understand whatever
decision you make and will still love you unconditionally no matter what.
The medium meditates and connects with your pet/s so it is important to tell them beforehand that there
is someone who can hear them and they will be listening to all their problems. It enables your pet to be
prepared with their questions and issues. (This allows your pets to get their list ready.) If your pet is lost
you can still this message out mentally to your pet, they will receive it even if you aren't sure they will.
During an animal communication session the medium will engage in a variety of techniques that allow
them to tune in with your pet, including internal imagery, body sensations and emotions.
They will use whatever method allows them to communicate the best with your pet
and that varies from pet to pet and situation to situation.
Because the communication with your pet is done telepathically, it can be done from any
distance and your pet does not have to be physically present at the time of your reading.
There are a few steps that you will need to do to prepare
for your animal communication reading.
The medium needs the name of your animal, the breed/species and your location.
You will need to have a photo of your pet/s that you can send via email to the medium,
( it does not matter how new or old the photo is)
Make a list of all the issues you are having with your pet, be it physical, behavioural,
phobias, poor toilet problems, anything.
The list of questions you would like to have answered.
If there are others living in your home, ie: spouse, roommate, children etc. Pets
talk a lot about the people they live with.
LOST PETS - The medium will need the exact location where your pet was last
seen and any odd circumstances happening beforehand.
Once you decide that you would like to have an animal communication reading you need to:
If the reading is for a LOST pet you need to make
sure that we know this immediately.
Choose the length of reading you would like.
Fill out the Book a Reading form (coming soon).
Pay for your reading via links on the Book a Reading form.
Once we have received payment for your reading we will contact the medium and
pass your details on to them. They will initiate contact at that point and
you will send all correspondence to them from then on.
Please note that your reading day/time is not finalized until after
your full payment has been received.
There are a few reasons the animal communicator will do this.
Your pet may not feel like communicating with them at the initial time they check in with your pet. It's hard to believe but pets
are just like us, sometimes just don't feel like being social.
Your pet might be busy sleeping, eating or playing and they don't want to take the time to communicate right then and there.
Some pets need extra time to communicate and by touching in with them a few times it gives them extra opportunities to talk
to the animal communicator without feeling pressured.
Some pets are uncertain of having a stranger talking to
them and they initially aren't game to cooperate.
And some pets are stubborn and will do things on
their time and at their pace.
In the event of a LOST pet the animal communicator will try to expedite gathering the
information for you. If your pet cooperates they can provide you with information quickly. Sometimes
the lost pet is confused or frightened and it may take the animal communicator additional time to
get the information for you, but trust they do understand the urgency of the situation
and they are doing their best to reunite you with your pet with you.
The process can take a bit of time depending on your pets cooperation so please allow for this. Once the
animal communicator has received enough information they will send the answers to you via email.
They will also call you to follow up on your reading and to see if you need additional clarification.
Our beloved companions are only to happy to communicate with us and your pet really does understand
when we talk to them. Understanding doesn't necessarily mean they will do what you want them to but
they do listen. Animals have opinions just like humans do. they will often remark on their human friends,
their food, their likes and dislikes, their wants and needs. They can be quite humorous or very serious and
practical. They might be very detailed or extremely vague depending on the importance of the topic.
The conversation can range from very brief answers to whole paragraphs.
If you are interested in finding out what your pet has to say then an Animal
Communication Reading is perfect type of reading for you.
Group readings can be a fun and rewarding experience to share a unique experience with your friends, family
or coworkers however they are a bit different then other types of medium readings.
Whether you call it a psychic party or a group reading doesn’t matter – it is simply you and five or more friends or
family gathered to share in the connection with your loved ones on the other side, as well as sharing insights
and messages regarding questions you have about your life path.
Erma does not do Group readings on her own
she ONLY does Group Readings
with a second Medium.
Gallery-style Group Readings are when you and your friends gather all together in your living room to receive
messages from your loved ones in spirit and answers to any questions you seek spiritual guidance about.
Gallery-style Group Readings are limited to 20 people. By participating in a group reading, you will not only
hear other people's messages, but they will also hear your messages through the medium/s.
The medium/s will try to give everyone in the group a message from their families, friends, or loved ones who have
passed on - based on the assumption that they make themselves known to the medium/s during the session.
There is no prepared script to these sessions and the medium/s cannot control the order in which
spirit steps forth to speak to loved ones, as a result the medium/s will select to give messages to
attendees in the group in a random manner.
The sessions are beautiful,
touching, and above all, a time
to connect with a loved one, so
that they can communicate with
you in their own way, with whatever message they choose to give you.
The medium/s has no control over
what messages spirit will bring
nor the length of the message.
Of course, there are times when it can be quite emotional, but you will be among friends, and no one is
ever embarrassed, as the medium/s is very sensitive and aware of the nature of any communication.
The medium/s make every effort to divide the time as equally as possible, but some spirits
can have more to say than others.
Medium/s can not guarantee that the specific spirit you want to connect with will come through with
a message; you may hear from old friends or you may end up being the middleman who passes on
a message to a friend from one of their relatives.
This type of session typically runs between 2-3 hours but its length can vary based on the number
of people attending and if there is more than one medium attending. Often in larger groups two
mediums will attend and give messages. This type of session typically runs between 2-3 hours.
A Private Reading Parties are similar to Galley-Style Readings in that you and your friends still gather together
at your location to enjoy messages from your loved ones and spirit with a medium.
The big difference is that the messages are given in a room separate from the rest of the group. The medium
gives the message individually and no one else has privy to the content of those messages. For
the most part this type of reading is a mini In-Person Reading.
The medium will provide a 20 minute one-on-one private reading for each person attending.
This type of Group reading session typically runs between 2 and 2.5 hours.
The cost is $50.00 per person and the group size is limited to 5 people. The medium of your choice will
cover a group of 5 people. If you have more friends and family that would like a message a second medium
will also come and handle the additional people.
Price is the same ($50.00 for a 20 minute private reading) for each additional person attending. Group
size must be 8 to 12 people for a second medium to attend.
Please bring a pad and pen to take your own notes if you wish, as no recording is allowed
at these sessions in respect of everyone's privacy.
Group Readings are a fun way for friends, family or co-workers to gather and experience a psychic medium!
The energy in a group is often magnified and allows for stronger connections.
Group Reading parties can be held in the comfort of your own home.
Party length depends upon the number of guests, but generally run 2 to 3 hours.
For parties held at your home, the fee is $50 per person for Private Readings and
$20 per person for Galley-Style Readings.
Function must be paid in full prior to medium coming to residence for readings.
Locations outside the central Toronto area may require an additional fee for travel.
If you need two mediums for your function you MUST contact the Canadian Fellowship
of Spiritualists by telephone to book your Group Reading Party.

Erma Mac Donald
Secretary, Fellowship Medium, Healer and Teacher
As a young girl Erma was exposed to the Spirit world within her own family. Her mother was able to communicate with deceased loved ones and read tea leaves and playing cards. Erma has always believed in spirit because spirit was always around her and she could sense it. Erma was able
to see things that others were not, she often had dreams that would come true.
Erma’s real journey into Spiritualism started in 2012 after her husband passed over. Her husband had
been ill for many years and the last year of his life was particularly hard.
After her husband passed Erma’s daughters decided that she needed a new beginning. The three of them
arranged for her to go stay with her youngest daughter who lives in northern California.
Her daughter gave Erma a CD, telling her that it had really moved her. So, Erma watched the movie. It was called
“The Way of the Peaceful Warrior” and the movie moved her and changed her. The next day she
felt compelled to join an online mediumship class and to start working on being a healer.
Erma began researching and reading everything she could to find about mediumship and about angels. She was soon guided by spirit to a Spiritualist church located in a little town near her daughter’s horse farm that had been there for 150 years. After visiting the church she felt a shift in her life and the spiritual transformation is still occurring even today.
After a rejuvenating six months in California with her daughter Erma returned home and immediately started
searching for Spiritualist churches so she could continue her mediumship and spiritual development.
She found the Spiritualist Church of Galt. The church was quite a distance away from her home in Etobicoke and
a while later her car quit working. Erma had to stop her mediumship development classes for awhile but during
her visits to the church she connected with a very important person over a weekend event in Galt.
That person would become a teacher and mentor to Erma a few months in the future. She met this lady at
the weekend class with Rev. Joseph Shiel from Lilydale. Rev Shiel is an amazing medium and teacher.
Erma was unable to do one of the exercises but she was paired with this special lady. Erma had to give her a
reading, but was having trouble. The Gal took Erma’s hands and said try now,much to Erma’s surprise it worked.
Later on she told Erma about a Spiritualist church in Toronto. Unable to find that church at first, she eventually found Springdale Spiritualist church. Unfortunately the trip to Springdale from Etobicoke without a car was just too long.
Continuing to research Spiritualist Churches in Toronto Spirit lead her to The Church of Universal Love which
at the time was located in the library at Bathurst and Lawrence. The Church was only a twenty minute bus
ride from where she was living and Erma attended her first service in October of 2013.
Church of Universal Love was just what Erma was looking for, friendly people, interesting services, messages
and healing. By Christmas she had become a member and was already volunteering to
help on the board as assistant to the president and treasurer.
Over the years Erma has taken many spiritual development classes. As a result she is a certified healer, a trance
healer, a medium and an animal communicator. She particularly enjoys the animal communication part of
her spiritual journey and has had many fascinating experiences with our animal friends.
Erma’s 50 years of experience in business, her accounting experience several years as an executive secretary for
a not for profit organization were a great help. Erma would soon become the treasurer and then the
president of the Church of Universal Love.
After serving COUL for several years Erma resigned her position as President in June of 2018 due to
health challenges she was facing.
As one door closes and another one opens. Erma’s intention was to take time to rest and regain her health, but
Spirit has laid a path before her that she knows is her next step forward on her spiritual journey. In July 2018
Erma became one of three founders of the Canadian Fellowship of Spiritualists in Toronto. Erma
is not yet out of the woods regarding her health challenges but she has noticed an
improvement as she moves forward in the co-creation of CFOS.
Erma loves working with spirit and is looking forward to serving others in this new venture they put
before her to participate in. She is excited about the possibilities with the Canadian Fellowship
of Spiritualists and the promotion of Spiritualism in our city and across Canada.
