Translating what your pet thinks or feels is a part of my job as an animal communicator. What I use is telepathy, known as the transference of pictures, feelings or words. Lots of people are not aware of the fact that: 1. Telepathy always exists, and 2. You are also engaging in it. Communicating with animals is not an action verb or something that we are doing. It simply is.
Life as we know it now on planet earth has become collectively chaotic, we are juggling more than we ever have in human history between the wars, the economic threats, globalization, environment as the collective stimulation of the day, not to mention the microcosms of our own little lives which may on a small level reflect that fear, anxiety, worry. (We forget it starts with us!) Hence, we wonder why our well behaved dog jumps on our dinner guests or worse…
Naturally, our instinctive animal companions absorb this world around us as well as remind us to get real. What do I have control of today? Well, I can choose to have joy for a minute with my animal companions. Even if for today in the midst of mass chaos, I’m choosing one minute to experience joy with (you fill in the name of your animal companion(s).
Besides, who would you rather spend two minutes worth of consciousness with? Perhaps it is several beings – in which case, you need to take a breath! Furthermore, who deserves it more than the loyal, the real, that pair of eyes staring at you for everything, or several pairs of eyes, depending on you for their every moment?
When we forget the simplicity, or are distracted from that truth, so many things get mixed up in translation and naughty behavior can result. Perhaps you are reading this to deepen the bond between you and your animal companion. So let’s go to some basics, shall we? Just as a reminder, these principals with your pets or animal companions also work in the rest of your world……so let’s practice with our pedestrian gurus, our pets:
1. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Our animal companions are looking to us and listening to us at all times. Even if they appear to be in their own world. Even if we spend a lot of time in our own world. Whether we are aware of it or not we are in their world as we are in everyone else’s world! As I say in my book, Communication with all Life, Revelations of an Animal Communicator, published by Hay House, we are of one mind.
When we say a command like no, or come – we have to commit to that intention. So many times I see someone say “no” to a small dog and then two seconds later; they pick the dog up and kiss it because it’s so cute. What is that really saying? It’s saying “no, yes, you are the cutest, you rule my world – just do what you want.” Is that really providing safety for them? The answer is no.
If you tell a dog to get off the couch and the dog gets off the couch and then you think to yourself ‘but when I leave the room the dog will get back on the couch’ – guess what – the dog sees your pictures or hears your thoughts – it’s an almost kneejerk reaction when you leave the room? He/she gets back on the couch.
Consciously picking your words, nicknames or stories is another key thing. I know, I know, we all lose our tempers or to be funny we tell a story about our animal friend. But it is not just our story; we are making it forever their story. Be careful what you convey even to close friends.
This is amazing to watch in your own life. How we communicate at home with our pets is often a microcosm of what we do in the world. There are so many other ways that we are not clear with communication. Our own brain probably says no, yes, well maybe on everything we contemplate. Practicing with your pet at home is a great way to understand how clear you are being out in the world.
When you ask an animal to do something are you pleading? Are you hopeful? Are you frustrated? Are you saying it with great authority? Is it mixed – as in sometimes he/she does it, sometimes he does it and therefore your voice, emotions, being suggests mixed? Do you have joyful expectation? Is it fun? – Even if it’s a bath? They rolled in something gross and stinky yet it’s freezing outside and therefore you shouldn’t torture them?
Have you ever had a friend drone on and on about the same story with a monotone voice? Do you check out on your friend? Do you think you ever sound like that with your animal companion? Do you know someone that speaks like they could die of excitement with every single thing they encounter but have no follow through?
My guess is all of us have been at least one of those things in the above mentioned paragraphs before. In fact, we may even swing through each of those things several times a day.
While animal communication is telepathy – pictures, words and feelings. Therefore, an emotional check and balance of where we are emotionally is important, especially in challenging situations. Automatically, pictures and the feelings follow the words – so if you are in a state – emotionally and you notice that your entire pack, herd or various species are following your emotional lead, remind them that even though you are feeling these feelings right now, ultimately, you are A-OKAY.
