About Christina Burki

Christina Burki is a Swiss-Dutch animal communicator who has been a leading professional in her field since 2009. Currently based in Australia, she grew up in the Netherlands where her house was situated close to the ocean and many farms.

Being a psychotherapist helps her analyze past traumas and give trauma therapy to animals as well. Sometimes animals are mirrors of the owners. They love their owners so much that they start taking on their problems. If the owner is willing to work on his/her problem, she can work as psychotherapist with the human and as an animal communicator with the animal, at the same time. Often the result is that the animal can let go of the problem/illness/sadness, along with the owner.
With this unique combination of skills, she provides a truly fruitful experience to the animal and human both!
Her work spans various countries where she provides training to budding animal communicators via online classes and physical classes. Ever since the inauguration of Animal Connect in 2009, she has successfully communicated with over a thousand animals and documented a positive change in almost all cases. Affirmative testimonies from clients on the official Animal Connect website allude to Christina Burki’s status as a premier, bona fide animal communicator.
She recently addressed an enthusiastic crowd at the Asia for Animals Conference in Nepal where her innovative poster presentation was featured.
Among other professional undertakings, Christina’s expertise has led her to be featured on animal communication pioneer Penelope Smith’s directory of internationally renowned animal communicators.

She now plans to lead a workshop retreat in New Delhi, India and is open to give workshops in other countries. Her appearance at these workshops is highly-anticipated. Christina aims to train and support children and teenagers in order to keep and deepen their connection with animals so humans and animals stay truly connected in this world. Her mission with Animal Connect is to create a deep-rooted bond between humans and animals so they can live in eternal harmony; and with every day she gets closer to that goal.

How Animal Connect came to be

To be in deep connection with animals is my passion! To be able to pass on their words is wonderful. To be like the bridge between humans and them is amazing.

Since 2009 I’ve been communicating throughout the whole world and can look back with a warm heart on hundreds of deep connections and contacts. Animals have such a great wisdom and knowledge, and to hear their words is enrichment for us humans.

The connection is possible by taking the time to really be with them. Just in our time of stress and disconnection animals can actually teach us to JUST BE. I love to be in my garden with my 4 animals. Just to sit, connect and when they want more they will come closer or call me. You can sometimes compare being with animals with being in deep awareness within a meditation. Did you know that your breath can also start to become deeper when you sit still and just breathe and observe? Actually, by being with your animals you practice mindfulness to be present in the moment. Communication is just wonderful to have with animals. Before I start communicating with animals I always ask if they are ok to talk with me. In 99 of 100, I get a YES and we will start our communication. Sometimes an animal needs to know more about me to really know if the animal can trust me.

I had a wonderful cat Prince Caspian who needed to know if he can trust me. He didn’t want to speak, so what we did was a heart to heart connection and suddenly there was a huge peace within and he said he is ready to start. For me, it is so essential to respect the animal I talk with. They give me the answers to the questions the owners will ask them and give us an insight into their lives and also understanding their feelings. They can even become a life teacher; I once guided a wonderful dog “Indie” over the last 8 month of his life. I, Indi, and Jasmine started a great teamwork together and he was such a great animal. He was a life teacher and he showed me to trust his process and thanks to my process with him, I started to communicate with his 3 organs which had problems.

Every communication in itself is so precious and special for the owners because they hear what their animal tells them. When the owner sends a message through me to the animal, in most cases the animal will pass a message back to their owner.

I have the gift to receive and give Healing Energy to the animals. I can do body checks and feel where the animal needs healing energy and I also love to help animals get better and feel good again. I can also heal by giving trauma therapy so that the animal feels better not only physically but also emotionally.

I remember that I guided a horse Diamante to get healed physically and emotionally. Though it took a longer while, it was incredible to see the transformation from a horse that was sent by 2 vets to be put down to a horse that is healthy again. It was layer work like by an onion but how wonderful when at the end you find the source of the problem.

When I look at my path as an Animal Communicator I can say that am filled with gratitude. In the beginning, I spoke mainly with dogs, cats, and horses but now more different species are coming into my life and communicate with me. A short while ago I did communicate with a mother whale and her baby to come out of the lagoon they were trapped in. And how wonderful a helicopter flew over the lagoon and they were not visible anymore…they were free!

I look forward to communicating with your animal and also in contact with you. I’m fully prepared to use my gift and help you to understand your animal better and know what he or she needs. Your relationship will even get deeper and your understanding of each other will be limitless when you also start to communicate with your animal.

My vision

Christina's visionAs Animal Communicator, I am certain that animal beings have feelings like you and I have too. They want love and real connections with you and I. Unfortunately often animal beings are treated as machines. Examples: to win money for people in the racing industry, as laboratory animals or they end in slaughterhouses. Animal beings deserve their rights and dignity back by showing them our respect, love and acceptance.  As a psychotherapist I am also aware that many people lost their connection with their own inner-selves. They don’t know who they really are and what they need, simply following the norm of the society surrounding them at the present moment. 

By bringing them in deep connection with their Core Self they will know who they truly are, what they really want and they can connect on another level with the human beings and animal beings experiencing true living and freedom. It happened already that I’ve started as animal communicator with an animal being and ended up as the owner’s psychotherapist. At the end there was such a change and I can see the intense bond they share which was truly touching!

I feel myself as a bridge between us human beings and the animal beings, allowing the owners to understand what the animal beings feel and need. I know that it doesn’t actually need me in this process as it should be the normal way however today our society does not value this gift. My vision is that human beings start to rediscover themselves and their connection with animal beings. Animal being can help you discover new values and a new horizon: They have a wisdom that will enrich us!

When I think of the fulfilment of my vision I see animal being and people living peacefully together in a way of ACCEPTANCE, FREEDOM and DIGNITY.
