Shirley Merrill and friend

Shirley is an amazing animal communicator. Animals love her because she gives them a voice, and she works with integrity and compassion. Her sessions will give you many specific details about your animal’s feelings and wishes.

Shirley is also a great teacher. If you have a chance to take one of her Animal Communication classes, don’t hesitate. You will learn to speak with animals during the class!

Shirley Merrill’s Animal Communication Class really helped me to connect with animals. I’ve tried other methods before, but they didn’t work for me. Before the Class was over, I was able to hear and communicate with one of her cats, and my two cats at home, even at a distance!

Since taking this Class, I’ve been able to communicate with my current pets, past pets, other people’s pets,and wild animals. I’m just so thrilled!!!!

Thank you so much for making a dream come true, to be able to experience this most wonderful journey!

I have known and worked with Shirley for over 10 years and my family has been richly blessed by her communications skills and knowledge of kinesiology, NLP, nutrition and supplements. She is compassionate, dedicated to getting to the core of an issue and very accurate. She has supported me and my fur babies through some of the most difficult times and delivered some of the most difficult messages with love and respect. We thank God for her everyday.

I consider Shirley to be gifted. Her ability to connect with animals and relay accurate information is astonishing. When Shirley offered the opportunity to take a class and learn communication I doubted my ability. She led us on a journey of meditation and exercises to communication. By the end of the class we ALL were able to communicate!

Thank you Shirley.

I once told Shirley that I was skeptical. “I’d like to believe animals can communicate with us” I remember saying. “But to be honest, I need to be convinced.”

Since then I’ve had a couple of profound experiences, thanks to Shirley, that have indeed made a believer out of me. One was with my horse, Luigi, and the other was with one of two of our (family’s) beloved, deceased, Labrador Retrievers. Roscoe, our black Lab, was “there” but it was Corky, a yellow Lab, who dominated the “conversation”. How do I know this? Apparently Corky needed to communicate about the details of her passing – things that Shirley had no way of knowing otherwise. (Yes, not only does Shirley communicate with the living, but she communicates with animals who have “crossed over” as well.) Dumbfounded at first, I quickly decided I needed to “go with the flow”, otherwise I might miss an opportunity to connect with Corky on some level. Corky deserved my attention. The experience was an emotional one for me but it did my heart good. I can only hope it did Corky’s as well.

Another meeting with Shirley could clarify that for me. Hopefully next time Roscoe will be a little more assertive in making his presence known. It was just “so” Roscoe to let Corky have her way.

Shirley, I look forward to our next session. I’ll be sure to bring tissues.

Shirley Merrill has a heart as big as all outdoors. Like the ancients, she can hear what animals know and surprise you with what the philosopher Santayana called “animal faith”.

Shirley –

Thanks so much for helping me with Lucy & Sydney Rose.  Now let me tell you the good news!

So as you know the first night when I got home, I immediately felt a change in Lucy, she was the most happy that I have felt from her in a long long time.  It had rained that day some, and we were expecting storms that whole evening, but nothing came of it. She not once went into her crate or left our family in the living room. The next day (Tuesday) shortly after I awoke I started to hear military booms and usually after she would have heard the first sound of noise she would have been off into her crate in the laundry room off the kitchen, but she stayed right there on her bed in the living room!!!  I left her alone and was in the bathroom, when I got out, there she was still in the bed in the living room!  OMG this has NEVER EVER happened!  I was riding my bike and heard a boom that shook the house slightly, and she didn’t move.  The second sound went off and I saw that she began to feel uncomfortable so I called her over to me, got on the floor with her, and talked to her about her safe picture and healing and I swear I was crying because I was so proud of her.  There we were feeling our love expand and she was being as brave as she could be.  She never left the living room, never went off in search for the safety of her crate and I returned to riding my bike amazed at this beautiful experience.

I can barely write this note to you without feeling my eyes tear up, words can barely express the gratitude that I feel for you and Lilly in helping heal a dog that I rescued from the shelter. Thank you, thank you, thank you.  I give you full permission to use this story in anyway to help another family.
