How Does Animal Communication Work?
Many people assume that animal communication is a new and rather unique profession and yet our ancestors have been communicating with nature for centuries. If you Google animal communicator you will most likely be surprised by the number of professionals an Internet search will produce. It is important to note that every human is capable of communicating with animals; many do it daily without even being aware.
How does animal communication work? Much like your radio actually. Imagine there is a radio station in a city called Hamilton and if you tune the dial on you radio to the Hamilton radio station you are able to hear the music or a talk show through the speakers. Animal communicators are trained to quiet their minds and be open to connecting to an animal or pet telepathically, to tune into their individual radio station.
Being an open channel for the communication is very important. In order to clear and maintain this channel, animal communicators must deal with their own blocks and fears. They must do their own inner work, so that they are not interpreting what the animal shares with their own opinions and judgements.
While some animal communicators prefer to meet with an animal one on one, I personally prefer to communicate from a photo. Provided with a photo, the animal’s name, age, and address I am able to complete the process with limited distractions. It is also more convenient for the animal’s person than long distance travel, especially if the animal is under distress.
It is important to understand that animal communication, while initiated by an animal communicator, is shared from the perspective of the animal. What their person thinks is the problem may not be what the animal shares. For example the issue may lie in their background, breeding, or lack of training. Their behavioural issues may be the result of their environment or diet. It could be the result of an experience that happened long before they arrived at their current home. It is also important to understand that if the animal does not see the situation as needing resolution, there may be little that can be done to change their mind. Just like human, animals can have strong personalities and opinions.
As you begin your research you may be surprised to learn how many animal communicators are also active life coaches. This is because animals many times mirror what is happening within the home. Perhaps they are sensing tension between two individuals, they can be responding to the energy in the home environment, or a lack of boundaries. In a case such as this it may require effort on both the part of the human and the animal to find a workable solution.
Animal communicators are professionals and as such they respect confidentiality; your privacy. Communicating telepathically with your pet or animal, animal communicators relay the information from the animal’s perspective to their person. Given the opportunity it is surprising how much information an animal is willing to share. Some of the information can confirm what you already know, identify a challenge, and many times the animal themselves will provide a solution as well.
As service professionals, animal communicators are also willing to work with Veterinarians, Animal Chiropractors, Trainers, Equ Bow Practitioners, and other Animal Health Care professionals. In addition to animal communication, I am also a Reiki Practitioner for animals. Using energy to calm a frantic animal, stimulate healing, or aiding in recovery from trauma and surgery are additional avenues for collaborative work.
Much like animal communication, animal Reiki can be administered remotely. Because energy is not limited by time or space, being provided with a photo, the animal’s name, age, and location healing energy can be focused accurately towards the intended animal. This is an added bonus for animals or pets that are in crisis or stressed.
Just as with human communication misunderstandings can occur. If the animal is sharing their thoughts threw pictures mistakes can be made. If the information provided through a communication session with your animal is unclear, you should feel comfortable asking additional questions. I know personally that if someone is “testing” me my intuitive skills quickly shut down. However, I am welcome to receiving additional questions, asking for clarity and better understanding of the message received. Sometimes these additional questions will prod me to remember something I forgot or allow me the opportunity to expand on what the animal has shared with me.
As I mentioned at the beginning of the article, finding an animal communicator is as easy as a Google search, but this will not guarantee that you will find the professional you are seeking. As humans we connect with different people on different levels, for different reasons. My suggestion is to visit a few websites and choose a professional that resonates with you. While you are visiting their website check to see if they have testimonials. Do they have blogs sharing information? If they are local to your area ask if others have used their services and what their experience has been. Contact them personally and see if their energy resonates with you.
On a final note, if and when you contact an animal communicator please keep the information you provide them brief. Share with the animal communicator the basic information they will need, but please limit details, unless the professional requests more information. For me personally, I know that with limited information I am more receptive to what the animal is sharing with me.
Animals experience our world from a different perspective than we do. They are more open to living in the present, but many spend a lifetime trying to support us on our journey. What may appear to be an annoying behaviour could actually be a gift.
In my lifetime I have shared my life with two dogs. Both were terrific, yet each played a different role in my life and shared with me different lessons. My first dog, a yellow Labrador, was a caregiver. While she lived with me she did her best to absorb my emotional baggage. I was not an animal communicator at the time and was unaware that her constant physical challenges were her way of protecting me. Assuming as much from me as possible in order to limit my pain.
My second dog was a White Westie Terrier. She was not only different in stature than my first dog, but she also had a much different role to play. While the lab was a people pleaser, part of her caregiver role, the terrier was very independent. She was a teacher and a healer as she challenged me to move through my issues and release them. Her persistent manner, in hindsight, was actually her greatest gift.
This form of communication allows humans to gain a deeper understanding of animal thoughts and emotions from the animal’s perspective. Individuals who choose this field of study do so for a variety of reasons but many are motivated by the need to help others.
If your animal has passed and you would like to reach out to them, an animal communicator can help you. If you would just like to know how your pet or animal is feeling, an animal can help you. If you are frustrated or concerned about your pet or animal, contact an animal communicator to learn what it is your pet or animal would like you to know.
