Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.'s)
What is Animal Communication?
Animal communicators fulfill the role of interpreting messages (pictures, thoughts, emotions) from your companions. This interpretation and exchange is used to help discover the source of behavior problems with animal companions, and assist in resolving the concerns. Through this counseling process, the animal's viewpoints, needs, issues, and feelings are relayed. Animal communicators also assist animals and their humans in addressing and releasing trauma, abuse, and fear, as well as feelings associated with injury, illness, and death.
Animal communication is a telepathic connection with the animal. It is based on respect for all living things, and acknowledgment of the intelligence and divine nature of our non-human friends. It is a deeply spiritual journey to one's own core, and a soul connection to our companions.
What animals do you work with?
The process of communication is the same with all animal forms. A significant portion of my clientele are dogs and cats, however I have also worked with a wide range of animal forms including horses, birds, turtles, monkeys, ferrets, hedgehogs, and whales.
What are a few of the ways people can communicate with animals?
In my experience so far, each person receives the communication in a way that is unique and comfortable to them. Animals communicate telepathically through pictures, thoughts, and feelings/emotions. Often folks will initially receive flashes of thought with pictures, and it will continue from there. It is important to understand that you can't receive their thoughts if your own mind is very chaotic and busy. Learning how to relax and be peaceful in the presence of an animal is key, and having an attitude of respect and reverence. Be receptive, and allow the animals to teach you.
Why is it important for pet guardians to know what their pets are thinking and feeling?
Both the person and animal are here for each other. The deeper the connection, the richer the experience, and the more the person learns about themselves as well as caring for and relating with their companion. In cases where there are behavioral issues or health concerns, understanding the animal's perspective and feelings is very enlightening. Having the opportunity for an interactive conversational exchange with your companion is an opportunity that the animals truly enjoy and appreciate, and a way for the person to experience and understand the unique personality of the animal at a deeper level.
Is there any animal that's easier to "interpret" than others?
Each animal is unique, and I find that it's important to avoid preconceived notions that may lead you to a logical conclusion. The ease or difficulty is based more on the animal's personality than it is based on their physical form. Animals that may be dealing with a lot of emotional complexity which has resulted in a barrier of resistance and distance to others are challenging clientele. This is often no different than what we experience in human relationships.
Have you noticed an increase in people wanting to communicate with their animals?
Most folks consider their animal companions to be an integral part of their family. As more people approach a stage of wanting to balance the chaos in themselves and their lives, they become open to the concept of communicating with their animals. There is a trend of folks wanting to become more connected in various ways, and this is a wonderful part of this pathway. As folks learn about the concept of animal communication and the ability to connect to the animals that have been sharing their homes and hearts, this clicks with them internally. I have been pleasantly surprised by the increasing number of folks in attendance at the presentations and workshops I have been doing around the Midwest. Many have a desire to have a consultation with their companion, or want to continue learning more through reading, as well as participation in Basic and Advanced Courses which I facilitate regularly. There are a growing number of communicators, many who have written excellent books. Doing a search of "animal communication" with most major on-line bookstores will now bring up multiple authors and titles.
What are some of the most common things people want to know about their animals?
I always ask folks to prepare questions for their companion for the consultation session. At the start of the session, though, I give the animal an opportunity to open with anything that they would like to communicate before we go through the questions. It is here where the personality of the animal begins to shine through and the person begins to understand their companion on a deeper level. From there, the person will often ask questions relating to behavior or health concerns. Sometimes they will ask for feedback on other animals in the family, their likes and dislikes, and activities the animal may be involved in, like agility or social events. It's also a wonderful opportunity for the person to ask some insightful questions like "what is their life purpose?"
Do you have any other thoughts or feelings that you feel are important to add?
The animals have so much to share with us, I would encourage folks to grab the opportunity to connect with them at a deeper level. They are wonderful teachers in so many ways. From my own personal journey and from what I see in others, the change in awareness that folks experience as they become open to the concept, and then open to the communication through respect, receptiveness, and non-judgement, is tremendous and invaluable. I'd like to encourage that the experience of being connected should be part of your experience of being human.
