Animal Communication is the ability to pick up, or sense, visual images, feelings and thoughts from the animals.
Animals long to be understood and they try to communicate with us in so many ways. Unfortunately, we’ve either forgotten to listen to the animals, or we’ve been taught that we’re mad if we do! But if we are willing to listen to the animals, they have a great deal to tell us.
It starts at a very simple and beautiful level: with the dog who comes to you for a stroke, and who nudges your hand when you stop, asking you to carry on. He’s communicating with you, isn’t he.
You may also relate to the dog who looks into your eyes, and you tune into him, and you know that he’s telling you that he loves you. Or the dog who looks into your eyes, and looks away, and looks into your eyes again and looks away again … and you realise that he’s actually drawing your eyes towards the treat barrel, or his empty water bowl, or his lead hanging on a hook.
I remember once being with a woman who was waiting for a house purchase to go through. She’d gotten herself into a terrible state, believing that it would all fall through and she would be homeless. All night long, her dog stood and barked at her. Nothing she did could stop the dog from barking. It was like they were having an argument. Could it be that the dog was picking up on her friend’s emotionally disrupted state, and telling her to let it go?
So of course the animals talk to us – all of the time.
Animal communicators are people who have consciously chosen to tune into the animals and hear what they have to say. They use their senses to pick up pictures, thoughts, feelings, smells … from the animal. They then translate these impressions into words and sentences that the animals’ humans can relate to.
Sometimes the animals have told me about their humans’ childhoods – in such detail that I couldn’t possibly have made it up. One dog told me how her owner would cross the road to speak to people, in case they were lonely. She loved her human so much, she wanted to eat her all up. Another dog told me that she had a problem with her ‘waterworks’, which turned out to be bladder cancer.
A rabbit said she was like a dog, and her owner agreed: this little rabbit used to wait at the garden gate for her human friend to get home from school.
A rat told me that his human had saved him. She confirmed this, explaining how she had found the little fancy rat on the loose and gave him a warm and comfortable home.
A dog said that humans are more beautiful than they realise, and he longed for us to be able to see ourselves as their animal friends see them.
The animals are not less than humans beings. Now we are beginning to hear them.
