Hearing the Animals

What is this little guy saying?

Almost without exception, the first quandary a new student of animal communication poses goes something like this: “I feel like my animal is hearing what I’m telling him, but I don’t feel like I’m hearing what he’s trying to tell me!” One woman at a recent talk I gave expressed this common dilemma much more humorously:  “Am I just imagining this, or is my dog sitting there looking at me like I’m the biggest idiot in the world because I’m not getting what he’s trying to tell me?!” The funny thing about this is that she clearly WAS getting what her dog was trying to tell her (tho’ he probably would not have gone so far as to call her an ‘idiot’)!

The hardest part of learning how to communicate telepathically with animals  is opening yourself up enough “psychically” to receive information from the subject in whatever form that might take. The next hardest part is trusting what you get! This opening is a state of being and, to put it very simplistically, allowing our brainwaves to slow way down. And it can be developed; it just takes practice.

In animal communication workshops we do lots of exercises to shift our brainwaves, slow down, tune in and relax. It’s an interesting process to watch people go through the shift — they often become very groggy or disoriented and by the end of the workshop are usually exhausted from wandering around in the ethers of the telepathic world, employing their brain in a way they aren’t used to.

But take heart. The shift into receptive mode and hearing the animals is not that hard overall, and there are many ways to get there. One of my favorite exercises, and one that is super effective for tuning in and being able to hear the animals is called Becoming an Animal. It’s one of Penelope Smith’s original exercises, and I use it in every workshop I teach. People love it, and it achieves amazing results.

Becoming an Animal is a meditative, almost hypnotic process, and it is easiest if you have someone to talk you through it while you sit relaxed and receptive. I’d suggest starting with one of your own animals and either look at them or at a picture of them. When you have them firmly in your mind you can shut your eyes if you like, as this may aid you in being able to experience fully what your animal is like and what he/she feels and senses.

When you are fully relaxed and have your animal well in mind, concentrate on synchronizing your breathing and then slowly visualize yourself shifting around until you are looking out through his eyes, experiencing his perceptions. At this point, slowly go through everything you can think of that you can sense from his point of view: how it feels to him to be happy or sad, to play his favorite game, go to his favorite spot. What does it feel like to walk on his legs or swim with his fins or fly with his wings. There is no end to what you can experience through animals’ bodies and minds, so use your imagination! When you finish, thank your animal and ever-so-slowly shift back around to your own body and fully separate from his.

This is an oversimplified version of this exercise, but I hope you get the idea. It’s a good idea to get permission first too, before “entering” an animal to feel its experiences, and tomorrow I will describe a very simple way to know if you have permission or not.

      Thanks for commenting Jean. My only advice would be to find a good animal communication instructor and start taking classes, or through a long-distance method (there are now CDs available as well as web classes), and then just practice, practice, practice! Achieving your goal will have a lot to do with the strength of your intention, so just pursue it until it starts happening for you. Good luck!
