Show Gratitude to Your Animals - Consider Animal Communication

(from November 2013 holistic newsletter)

Benefits of Animal Communication

There are numerous benefits to being able to communicate with the animals in your care.  Some of these you may not have thought of before or even thought were possible.

  •  Your pet may be acting sick.  You can ask them how they are feeling and if they know what is wrong with them.  While animal communication does not replace proper veterinary care, it can sometimes shed light on what is going on.  Your vet can help determine what is going on.  You can also ask your animal what you can do to help them feel better.
  • If your animal has a behavioral or training issue, you can ask them why they are behaving that way.  Always understanding the why behind a situation is important.  Sometimes that is all that is needed to resolve a situation.  Other times, offering a positive or negative consequence can help as animals really do want to please us.
  • There are probably many questions you would like to ask your animal if you had the opportunity.  They could be simple questions like What is your favorite food?  Or What is your favorite thing to do?  You can also ask complex questions such as What is your purpose in my life? Or What can I learn from you?
  •  If your pet suffers from anxiety, you can touch base with them while you are at work, shopping, etc.  You can let them know when you leave how long you will be gone and while you are gone, see how they are doing.
  •  If you are on a personal or business trip, it is stress and anxiety relief for both you and your animals if you can check in with them to see how they are doing.  You can let them know when you will be returning, like 5 more days, 4 more suns, etc.
  • If you or someone you know has experienced the heartache of a missing pet, you know how devastating it can be.  You can communicate with lost animals to help find out where they are so you can go get them or guide them back to you.
  • Your pet may be ready to cross over but you are not sure. Animals are very helpful and can tell you what signs to look for to know that they are ready, such as they will lay down and not get up or they will stop eating.  You can ask them their desires and find out what can help them in their transition.
  • When your animal does pass on, you can speak to them just as if they were still here, right by your side.  That heartfelt bond and love you have will always exist even if they are no longer physically present.

Why Animals Want the Best for Us

Many people do not realize that animals are here to teach us.  They play a vital role in our life.  There are many ways they try to teach us, just sometimes we don’t get it unless we are hit over the head.  These are just some of the reasons they may be in our lives:

  • Some animals are here to make you laugh.  That is their gift.  They are normally in the lives of people that really need to learn to lighten up or perhaps they need some major cheering up.
  • Some are here to provide emotional support.  They really seem to “listen” to us when we are happy and when we are going through tough times.
  • Helping you feel safe and secure can be an important role they play.  Their presence is reassuring and comforting.
  • Some animals are here to share with you the experience of providing a service to others such as a therapy dog.
  • Sometimes you may not know what you should do in your life.  Yes they can actually help with that.  And then they support you on that journey.
  • Maybe you need a push in the right direction with your health.  Did you know they may exhibit illness or injury in order to teach you to explore different options? 
  • Some animals come into our lives so that we can learn how to experience loss, grow stronger, and realize we can move on. 

What is interesting is to know that some things may happen again and again in your life because you have not yet learned what you need to.  But ultimately, the animals are here to teach you.  They want the best for you.  They are your guides.  Animals are here to help you learn your life lessons.  They want to help support you in your life and life purpose.   When you can understand what they are trying to teach you, your life becomes more clear, like a veil has been lifted.  You are at peace and can see the positive in yourself and others.  You truly start looking at life differently, like they have looked at life all along.

Whether you learn how to communicate with animals yourself or seek assistance from a professional communicator, you will find that animal communication is a profound and rewarding experience that will change your life.  Whether you are a pet owner or a professional that works with animals, you will find that communication deepens your relationship and understanding with the animals in your care like nothing else.  Next month, we will talk about learning how to communicate with animals!  Hope you will join us!

Blessings to you and the animals you love!
