How to Talk to the Animals - Animal Communication is YOURS to Learn!

Continued from the December 2013 Holistic Newsletter

Ways to Receive Information

Animal communication can happen in several ways.  It may come to you in the form of one of these ways or even several, but no matter how it comes, know that it is coming from the animal.

  • You may see words or images in your mind.  For instance, if you ask your animal what their favorite food is, you may see the word "cookie" or you may see an image of a cookie.
  • You might 'hear' words or thoughts.  Most people hear in their mind, not as if a person is speaking to them.  For instance, if you asked the same question as above, you would 'hear' the word cookie. Sometimes I will receive the image and the corresponding word(s) at the same time.
  • You may feel sensations, either physically or emotionally.  For instance, you may be communicating with an animal and you start to feel pain in your left hand.  It could be that the animal you are communicating with has an injured left front foot.  Or, you may feel deep sadness when you communicate.  This could be because an animal has had an abusive past.
  • You might have the ability to taste or smell.  For instance, if you ask your animal what their favorite food is, you may taste or smell the cookie.  
  • You can have the ability to know something. You do not see an image or hear words, you just simply know it.

First Steps

  • Get comfortable whether that is on your bed, favorite chair, or on the floor.  Or perhaps you would prefer being in the outdoors, sitting on the grass or under a tree.
  • Learn how to quiet your mind by taking deep breaths.  You can listen to relaxing music if that helps.  Your goal is to get into a meditative state.
  • You are able to communicate with animals.  Intent and believing in yourself are the two most important things to remember.  It is only natural to doubt yourself, but please know that everyone is able to do this.
  • The more you do to clear yourself through energy work such as reiki or EFT or energy based modalities such as muscle testing, essences, oils, crystals, and homeopathy, the more clear a channel you become which means the more clearly you can communicate with animals.
  • Connect your heart to the animal's heart.  
  • Tell them you love them and anything else you would like to say to them.
  • Listen with your heart and soul. 

Trying to do this on your own can be challenging simply because most people do not have enough faith in themselves.  But practicing the steps will help you to connect on a deeper level with your pet, even if you are not sure you are communicating.  

Keep in mind that it can be helpful to get the guidance of a teacher to help you "learn" how to do this.  We say "learn" simply because you are actually awakening this ability inside yourself.  You just need the guidance to bring this ability forward.  Find an experienced teacher to gently guide and support you on your journey.  If you think that you need to attend a class in person, know that you do not.  In fact, many people do much better learning in the comfort of their home or business through a teleclass - a class where you call in by phone or Skype.  

Just remember that the animals are here to support and teach you. They know you can communicate with them.  They are just waiting for you to take that first step.  And when you do, you will find that your life will never be the same again.
