Using telepathy, we can all learn to send information to our pets, and pick up on the signals they send back.
By Joan Ranquet
As an animal communicator, my job is to translate what your pet is thinking or feeling. I use telepathy, which is the transference of pictures, words and feelings. Telepathy is always occurring,whether you are aware of it or not, and that means you are already engaging in it with your pet.
Animal communication is not an action verb or something we are “doing,” it is simply happening. Life as we know it now on planet Earth has become collectively chaotic. We are juggling more than we ever have in human history. The news tells us of wars, threats, globalization and the environment, and we experience collective stimulation all day — not to mention have our own personal issues that may include fear, anxiety and worry. Our animals pick up on this, and then we try to figure out why our well-behaved dog jumps on our dinner guests, or worse!
Our animal companions naturally absorb this world around us, and can serve as a reminder for us to get real. They can ground us in that way, and we can choose to have joy for a minute with them, even if it’s just for a minute. Besides, who would you rather spend two minutes worth of consciousness with? And who deserves it more than the loyal, real, pair of eyes staring at you for everything?
However, when we forget the simplicity, or are distracted from that truth, so many things get mixed up in translation, and naughty behavior can result. One of my favorite things to remind communication — say what you mean, and mean what you say.
Our animal companions are looking to us and listening to us at all times — even if they appear to be in their own world, or even if we spend a lot of time in our own world. Whether we are aware of it or not, we are in their world as we are in everyone else’s world! As I say in my book, “Communication with all Life: Revelations of an Animal Communicator,” we are of one mind.
When we say a command like “no,” or “come,” we have to commit to that intention. So many times I see someone say “no” to a small dog and then two seconds later they pick the dog up and kiss it because it’s so cute. But what is that really saying? It’s saying, “No, yes, you are the cutest, you rule my world — just do what you want.” Is that really providing safety for them? The answer is no.
If you tell a dog to get off the couch, and it does, but then you think to yourself, “When I leave the room, the dog will get back on the couch,” guess what? The dog sees your pictures or hears your thoughts, and it’s an almost kneejerk reaction that when you leave the room he/she gets back on the couch.
Consciously picking your words, nicknames or stories is another key thing you can do. I know we all lose our tempers, or we think it’s funny to tell a story about our animal friend. But it is not just our story. We are making it forever their story. Be careful what you convey, even to close friends. Pick a point when you and your pet feel like you both need to be complete with the story of their past, or the story of the people of is one simple truth about animal last naughty thing they did as a result of their past. But don’t make it mythology about the animal. In other words, if it’s a negative story, let it go.
As I mentioned, they live in a world that is pictures, words, feelings and what we brush off as instinct. Practicing with your pet at home is a great way to understand how clear you are with your communication out in the world.
In my Animal Communication Seminars, we play “sending and receiving” games. Sometimes it is more remarkable to see how many different images we are sending when trying to relay one concept. This little game indicates how unclear we are with our pets. It is also good to see how much quieting the mind helps whether we are sending or receiving information with our animal companions.
When you ask an animal to do something, are you pleading? Are you hopeful? Are you frustrated? Are you saying it with great authority? Is it mixed, where sometimes he/she does it? Do you have joyful expectation? Is it fun, even if it’s a bath?
Have you ever had a friend drone on and on about the same story with a monotone voice? Do you check out on your friend? Do you think you ever sound like that with your animal companion? My guess is all of us have been at least one of these things before. In fact, we may even swing through each of those things several times a day. Even though animal communication is telepathy, they are going to pick up on the pictures and words, and even more important is the emotion behind what we are saying. If we are trying to convince an animal of something happy when we have a great amount of tension in our emotional being, we are conveying a mixed message. Being in a calm, assertive state is a more effective way to “send” a message.
Taking charge emotionally is truly the way to balance and create harmony in the household. In the next issue, we will go into detail about Emotional Leadership!
Until then, communicate clearly!
