Animals do not speak our language, but their thoughts and feelings can be interpreted by a sensing process allowing the human to “share awareness” with the animal. The human then makes an interpretation of the animal’s thoughts or feelings. Animals may also pick up human thoughts and feelings and react accordingly. Animal Communication is a cross-species interpretation of thoughts, feelings and energies. It is based on the belief that all life operates in an inherent bio-energetic field of consciousness where thoughts and feelings exist. This consciousness is shared by all species and when specifically contacted can be interpreted by humans and other species. The process of “inter-species communication” requires the development and bridging of both the “left” and “right” brains as well as the unconscious or sub-conscious and conscious minds.
There are at least three different, but related levels of consciousness for accessing information:
Level 1 is the “ego/personality” of the animal. This is the most common level of contact allowing the communicator to gain information from the animal’s perspective. This level is of value with regards to behavioral issues, likes/dislikes, habitat and survival skills and often where the animal may be in pain.
Level 2 is the body itself. Often an animal may block pain and be unaware of where it hurts. Contacting the body at the cellular level allows information about the condition and over health dealing with the anatomy and physiology of the animal. This level of information is often referred to as “medical intuition” and may be conducted by a “medical intuitive specialist.”
Level 3 is the “relationship level.” This level reflects the animal’s interactions and involvement with either the human companion or another animal companion. The information collected from this level may be somewhat “projective” or “reflective” of the human’s condition and requires a skilled, self-aware animal communicator to differentiate the information. The level of energetic interpretation from this level is more complex.
Benefits of Inter-species Communication
Although not an “exact science,” cognitive inter-species communication has many applications and benefits. Asking an animal where it hurts or conducting an energetic “body scan” on the animal can often identify specific areas of imbalance or distress. Information can be validated by the owner-guardian or veterinarian checking the animal. This procedure is most often used when traditional western practices have not located or relieved the animal’s condition. Behavioral issues can often more easily be resolved by determining from the animal’s perspective what is causing the behavioral pattern.
Animal Communication Training/Education
Animal Communicators may or may not have academic and scientific backgrounds. Those that do will most likely have education in one or more of the following fields: ‘cognitive ethology,’ ‘consciousness studies,’animal psychology, animal behavior or ‘parapsychology.’ Although undergraduate through graduate degrees are available worldwide in these disciplines, most animal communicators are self-taught or have taken classes from other professionals. There are no licensing or academic requirements for this profession at this time. However, animal communicators with scientific knowledge about a species may be able to offer more in-depth and
clear interpretation of the animal than one with little or no scientific background.
Working With an Animal Communicator
A good animal communicator will not ask you for much information besides the animal’s name, species and perhaps where it lives. They will want to know if there are any specific questions you want to know about the animal. The “name” of the animal acts as a “tag” or “locator” for the animal consciousness. This process can be done in person or at a distance, as consciousness is not restricted to time and space. The information received from the animal communicator about the animal may come in the form of ‘clairvoyant’ (pictures), clair-audio (words), or clair-sentient (feelings) depending upon the communicator’s expertise and ability. Good animal communicators should be able to interpret information and feelings in more than one way and information should be able to be validated.
