|Lisa Greene says she is
a human medium (able to communicate
with the living and the deceased) turned
pet psychic who can communicate with
animals to find answers to these and
other questions people may have about
Even as a child, Greene said she
has always known she has had psychic
abilities. It wasn't until she was
an adult, however, that she realized
she could use her abilities to start
her own business.
For 14 years, Greene has been a psychic/medium
for humans. Four years ago, it all
changed from people to animals.
According to Greene, one morning
she woke up and the clients who called
that day wanted to know about their
pets. From that day forward, Greene
knew she was destined to be a voice
for the animals.
Greene and the animals don't communicate
with words. They talk to each other
on a higher level, through thought
"I tune into their energy; I'm
clairvoyant, I get pictures,"
In addition to common household pets,
Greene can communicate with any type
of animal including llamas, alligators
and a wide variety of exotic animals.
"I've always had a psychic connection
with animals," Greene said. "There's
no animal I can't read for."
Greene mainly conducts her readings
by telephone and she has clients all
over the world, from as far away as
France and Canada.
When a prospective client talks to
Greene for the first time, she determines
whether she is the right person to
do the reading.
"Not everyone who comes to me needs
a reading," she said. "I am
not supposed to read for everybody."
Greene then sets the appointment
time, gets the owner's name, the name
and breed of the pet and the topics
the owner would like to cover.
"Everyone's comfortable in the
phone reading," Greene said.
After the initial discussion, Greene
calls the client back at the scheduled
time and conducts the reading. The
pet does not have to be near the owner
at the time of the phone call.
Marcetta Helms, of Spring, met Greene
at a dog show and was surprised by
what she learned about her dog, Brandy,
during her reading.
"I'm a true believer just after
the first five minutes," Helms
said. "This is her calling in
Helms said that Greene only asked
for her dog's name and breed. From
that information, she was able to
tell her things about her dog that
Greene couldn't have known including
that her dog wears a red collar.
"Everything she brought to the
table is what she got from Brandy,"
Greene covers everything from behavioral
issues to eating problems and a wide
variety of other topics.
One of the first messages that comes
through from an animal is that it
doesn't like its name or its food,
When Greene deals with behavioral
issues of a pet, she gives owners
a concrete way to work with problems
and in turn helps the animals deal
with their fears. By doing this, she
mediates compromises between the owner
and the pet.
In addition to dealing with living
animals, Greene also communicates
with deceased animals and animals
that are about to die.
"Animals are real understanding
about death," she said. "It's
about getting some peace, I can't
take away the grief."
According to Greene, pets are very
complex and each one has its own personality
and sense of humor. Like some people,
some pets are very reserved while
others are gossips.
"I try to find out your pet's
perception of whatever you want to
know," Greene said.
If an owner calls about a pet experiencing
health problems, Greene will conduct
medical scans of pets to find health
related problems. She said she has
the ability to feel a small amount
of the pain an animal is feeling.
Although she conducts these scans,
she does not diagnose, treat, heal
or take the place of a veterinarian.
"I do what I love and I love
what I do," she said. "If
you have the opportunity to find out
about your animal then why not."
While there are those who are skeptical
about whether Greene can actually
communicate with animals, she assures
them that she is not out to prove
anything. She said she is just trying
to make sure pets have the best life
