what animal communicators do

I was a small child, I could feel animal's emotions and understand what
they wanted. My parents
told me I was imaging this - pretending.
So for most of my life I kept pretending.
It was something I did as a game.
Like so many of us, I was taught to reject my personal
experience and to accept what others told me, even when it contradicted
what I "knew".
1994, I read Animal Talk, a book by Penelope Smith.
This is a self-help paperback on how to communicate
telepathically with animals, and I was excited to think that I could
teach myself how to do this. Instead,
I had a startling realization - I had rejected what my heart knew was
true - I could already communicate with animals and they could
communicate with me and I had been doing this all my life.
It was a short step to deciding that I wanted to be a
professional Animal Communicator.
Communicators are telepathic, meaning they exchange energy with animals
for the purpose of communication. The
communication can take many different forms:
pictures, words, physical sensations, knowings, intuitions,
psychic smells and tastes, and combinations of these forms.
conversation, an exchange of ideas, requires sentient beings.
"Sentience" is consciousness, self-awareness, and the
ability to experience sensation, feelings, and emotions.
are sentient beings. Their
physical form differs from our own, but they are equal to us in
consciousness. They are
alive and aware. They
think. They feel.
They make choices. They
have beliefs and values. When
they are young they require additional care and nurturance.
When they grow up, they become adults.
Their body may look small and cute, but the being inside it is
capable of making life-altering decisions just like an adult human.
are beings of Spirit, as are we. Many know what their life purpose is and will not alter
their life plan just because we may ask them to do so. They are aware of themselves and of their situations.
They make life choices. They
often express Unconditional Love for the humans in their families.
In fact, those who live with us have chosen at a spirit level to
be with us just as we have chosen to have them in our lives.
telepathically with animals means speaking with the animal's Spirit.
It is both an energetic and a spiritual connection.
This is why telepathic communication does not require the
physical presence of the animal. Most
professional Animal Communicators work over the phone with their human
clients while they speak telepathically with the animal. Distance is irrelevant.
The animal can be anywhere on the planet, asleep or awake, even
in a coma. The animal can be alive, meaning the Spirit is connected with
the physical body, or can be dead, meaning that the Spirit lives while
the physical body has ceased to function.
of my clients from Switzerland was living for a time in the USA.
Her dog had stayed behind with her parents, who spoke no English.
I would speak with her dog every so often, and she would ask the
dog about her parent health and activities.
Sometime later, she might speak with her parents by phone, and
reported to me that the dog always described the family's circumstances
accurately to me.
a professional Animal Communicator, my job to translate what the animal
tells me into English and to facilitate understanding between the animal
their human companions. In
a session, I explain the human viewpoint to the animal and the animal
viewpoint to the human. I
help both parties brainstorm a mutually satisfactory resolution to a
situation. I may negotiate
a conflict among several animals.
the goal is to improve relationships, change behaviors, or solve
problems in an individual situations, generalities are less useful than
allowing individual differences to come through. Feelings need to be honored.
Respect is key to achieving cooperation. The needs and feelings of the individual animal are unique
and special. Just
being heard and understood can help the animal change their behavior and
it is the person's insight that brings about change.
This may happened when the animal's unwanted behavior is intended
to teach a spiritual lesson. One woman was having a problem with her dog, who was
urinating the entryway of the house.
She had been very harsh and unforgiving with the dog, who
continued the unwanted behavior. When
the dog told the woman how she felt about how she was being treated, the
woman experienced a profound insight:
the animal's feelings were just like her own feelings as a child
when her father had been harsh with her.
She was now repeating that pattern with her dog.
While initially the woman was upset to discover herself acting as
her father had, she soon began to empathize with the dog.
The woman was then able to forgive her father and herself.
The dog immediately forgave the woman, and stopped urinating the
the animal's perspective is very different from that of the person.
The old adage of walking 100 miles in someone else's moccasins
(or paws) is very applicable here.
Great love is fostered by a solution that resonates well for
everyone, meets everyone's needs, and demonstrates honor and respect for
each being. Divine Love
emerges with mutual recognition of our Self in the Other.
A win-win solution is the only solution that can achieve this
