Talk 2 Animals

How Does It Work?

Telepathic communication - Can anyone do it?

The ability to communicate telepathically is not limited to just a few. Some may find it easier to master than others, but it is my belief that we are all 'wired' to communicate this way. Below I will explain my process step by step. I strongly urge you to read other animal communicator's methods for connecting. There are many great books available. See Books and Links for a partial list. Whatever method you choose, just remember to relax and have fun!

How I do it

Since this type of communication takes place internally, I start by clearing my mind of as much mental activity as possible. I center by breathing a few deep breaths into my heart area. Then I root myself into the earth by imagining roots growing out from my feet, down deep into the earth. When I feel like I am clear and centered, I am ready to connect.

I mentally call the name of the animal and then wait for a reply. The reply may come in the form of a picture, a feeling, a sound. Before I enter into conversation with them, I first acknowledge them. I sit with them for a few seconds and acknowledge the animal as an individual; their personality, their emotional and physical state, and I admire their strong points - their loyalty, physical beauty, or whatever strikes me first about them.

When I first started experimenting with animal communication I took more time in acknowledging the animal. This helped me determine if I had connected with the correct animal. This can be more challenging in multiple animal households. The admiration that followed acknowledging the animal happened spontaneously because I was so struck by the incredible beauty of these beings. Later, as I became more conscious of what was happening during the communication process, I realized that acknowledgement and admiration are the perfect way to start any conversation - whether with an animal or a human. Everyone wants to be understood and admired, and when this heart connection is made, my experience is that more trust is established and the animal is most open with me. With openness and trust, the most truth of their situation comes out.

After trust is established, I introduce myself and my reason for connecting, and proceed with the conversation. Before closing, I ask if there is anything else they would like to ask or say. I attend to whatever comes up, thank them and say goodbye. I usually communicate remotely.

First step -The Setting

Sit in a quiet space where you will not be disturbed. You can have your animal companion in the room with you if they are settled, even asleep. You may notice them responding to you outwardly when you communicate with them, or they may remain asleep. Either way is fine. If your animal friend will not be able to remain still, put them in another room. The fewer distractions there are on the outside, the easier it is to make the connection from the inside.

Second step - Centering

The more quiet and settled the mind, the stronger and more clear the communication. I have found it very helpful to steer away from anything that gets my mind racing. For me, that includes sugar, caffeine and high carb foods. To center yourself, breathe a few deep breaths and bring your attention into your body. Feel how and where the breath goes in and out. For many of us, we are so accustomed to focusing on our outer world, that we need some help getting used to redirecting our focus on our inner world. I highly recommend practicing some kind of meditation that quiets the mind and directs the attention inward. Once you feel quiet and centered, put your attention on your heart area. Breathe in and out of this place. Next, imagine roots growing out of your feet and going deep into the earth. When I do this my experience is that I feel very grounded but at the same time very expanded. At this point you are ready to send out a message to your animal friend.

Third step - Sending out a thought

Thoughts have energy and our usual pattern is that we think a thought and then we send out the message of that thought through verbal speech. We humans communicate with each other this way. We also get many messages through to our animal friends through verbal speech. We call them for dinner, to take a walk, invite them up onto our laps, etc. What is missing is our ability to hear their side of the conversation which, as we know, makes for a lopsided and at times frustrated conversation!

When first communicating telepathically, I suggest keeping all conversing in silence. Try this procedure until you feel very comfortable with the process of holding your center while sending and receiving messages. To direct a thought without speaking it out, imagine your thought as an object, such as a ball or paper airplane, that you throw out to your animal friend. Picture in your mind's eye the thought moving through the air and landing at your animal friend. For your first message try a greeting such as "Hi Hazel!", of course substituting your animal companion's name for mine, unless you want to speak with my feline friend Hazel!

Fourth step - Receiving a telepathic message

I titled this fourth step 'receiving a telepathic message' and not 'receiving a thought' for an important reason. We usually think of thoughts as silent verbal language, but when you receive your animal's thoughts telepathically, they may come in a variety of forms. If you are waiting only for a verbal "Hi" in response to your "Hi", you may easily miss your first communication with your friend! Information you receive telepathically can, but will not necessarily be in words. Instead, you may feel a wave of excitement as you might when you hear a friend greet you, or you may hear their bark along with a feeling of excitement, see their face in front of your closed eyes, or they might actually turn and look at you. Just remember to remain open to their response coming back to you in any possible form. Whatever comes, acknowledge it, thank your friend and try a second question, like "how are you?" Don't hesitate to ask your animal friend to help you learn how to best connect with them. Most likely they are as interested in your new venture as you are, and who better to help you learn the language than a native speaker that loves you!

When I was first experimenting with animal communication, I tried to think of things that mystified me about animals. Some questions I asked were:

From cats - what is it like to see in the dark?
From dogs - why do you lick people?
From birds - what does it feel like to fly?

When forming your questions, be as specific as possible. Just as with people, the more specific your question, the more specific your answer. Try to think of questions that cover the different senses so you can get practice getting messages that will register in different ways. And most of all, have fun!
