I got my start in animal communication more than 15 years ago when I took my ailing dog to see a pet psychic.
It was a big deal for me to take my dog to “such a person” as I’d been raised to believe there was nothing more to life than our physical world. This didn’t mean I didn’t want to believe though – and the session with the psychic actually changed my life. I was profoundly affected and immediately began questioning what I was doing in the MBA world, working in telecommunications. It wasn’t making me happy and now I knew why.
Through that experience, I realized that I’d been intuitively connecting and communicating with animals my entire life – and many of the emotional challenges I’d experienced growing up stemmed from my innate sensitivity. It would take many more years for me to realize the true depth of that sensitivity (which was my psychic ability), but that event started me down a completely new path.
Many, many years later I’ve come to fully embrace my sensitivity and now I teach others to do the same. I’m now teaching at some of the most highly esteemed institutes in the country (like the Omega Institute and Kripalu Center), I’ve thus far taught thousands to communicate intuitively with animals through workshops, live webinars and video programs, I’ve helped many change their negative beliefs about themselves through my programs and individual sessions, and I’m running my own school, the Danielle MacKinnon School of Animal Communication. In all, I feel really, really happy that I didn’t continue down the path of big business. It just wasn’t for me.
Recently, I came to a place in my work though where I wanted to be able to offer more. My waiting list for private sessions is more than a year and it’s only getting longer as I can’t keep up with the demand. Plus, my students want to be able to ask more questions and continue mentoring. And then there are the other people who have questions and who are looking for support. I needed a fun, cool, exciting, passionate way to be able to work with everyone who was looking for assistance.
That’s why I created Be Open. And I’m so excited to share it with you!
