Have you ever wondered how Animal Communication works?
Whether it’s a completely foreign concept to you, or you’re open to it but interested in more detail, here’s my take.
First though, what is Animal Communication?
There are lots of different ways that people communicate with animals. It might be using words (they can figure out what you want from the emotion and energy behind the words, and the picture that they produce); body language (eg turning your body a certain way, starting or stopping); traditional training methods; positive or negative reinforcement (ie to convey, yes, I want you to do that, or no, I don’t want you to do that); and newer methods like clicker training.
Here, though, we’re talking about the more ‘woowoo’ version – communicating psychically, telepathically, or via meditation.
It’s basically a means of being able to ask animal’s questions, and hear from them their answers and opinions.
From an owner’s point of view, it can help to clarify why the animal is doing a certain thing, have things explained to the animal, and / or a way that they can get all their burning questions answered. It can reduce the amount of time you spend trying different options, or, just reinforce that gut feel that you have.
So, how does Animal Communication work? There are two main steps.
1. Making a connection
Step one is to make a connection. There are animal communicators who need to be in the physical presence of the animal, perhaps even touching it, through to those who work remotely. Working from a distance might be in real time, on the phone or using a platform like Skype or Zoom. Or, like me, it might be by making an energetic connection with a photograph of the animal. (You can read more about how I became an animal communicator here.)
Some Animal Communicator’s have an ‘open channel’, and hear streams of conversation from any animal they happen to be near. Others have to deliberately and methodically ‘make’ (or request) a connection. For me, that means looking at a photo of the animal, then going into a meditative state. I visualise the animal, and ask permission to connect with it; that’s how I ensure I’m connecting to the correct animal.
All reputable animal communicators will start their session by asking the animal’s permission, and won’t proceed if the animal doesn’t want to talk to them.
Check out this video for my analogy on how animal communication works –
2. How information is received.
As I said, some animal communicators do hear conversational like words when they connect. Others might get pictures, or visuals, for instance of an experience or accident that the animal had. Some get colours, feelings, or emotions – or even pain or discomfort in the same place that the animal is experiencing it.
Communicators will do a combination of listening to / collecting whatever information is being freely shared with them, and asking questions to find out more or delve into other areas.
Whatever way that animal communicators receive their information, with practice (and feedback from owners), they learn how to interpret it and relay it on.
And that’s basically how animal communication works…
For the majority of animal communicators, that’s it, ie they ask your horse or pet questions, and pass on the answers.
For me however it goes deeper. My sessions have expanded to include a variety of energetic balancing and healing.
I’ve found that by including those aspects I’m able to help the animal and human much more. Rather than just giving them some answers and leaving them to figure out how to implement their next steps, I’ve actually found that most of the time helping the animal energetically actually tends to solve many of the issues the owner was originally concerned about.
Have a look at this presentation I did recently on the importance of energetic balance for your animals –
So, can you trust what comes up in an Animal Communication session?
How do you know that it’s accurate?
I can only say that I have complete confidence in the information that I receive – otherwise I wouldn’t be doing this. But, in addition to that, is the confirmation I get from owners.
I do the majority of my sessions ‘blind’ – the only info I get up front is the photo and name of the animal. So when owners confirm things that I couldn’t have known, it helps them trust the rest of the reading too.
Of course, there are also some times when information an owner was expecting doesn’t turn up!
I discuss that in this video –
When it comes to what you can expect to learn in an animal communication session, I can only speak for my own.
You’ll find out how happy your horse / pet is, what’s going on with their health and diet, whether their tack fits, and whether they like their job. You’ll be able to ask as many questions as you like about why they’re doing a certain thing, and their likes and dislikes. And, if you’re having problems, or something is about to change in their world, I can explain things to them for you.
The bonus with my sessions is that all animals receive a range of energy clearing and balancing, and whatever healing they require.
