Children and Animal Communication

Yesterday, I was Wii-sporting with my 8 year old nephew Elias. We were playing Wii Bowling and having a great time except….I was trying my trusty Wii Bowling technique, that works really well whenever I play with my “Adult” friends.

It hardly ever fails to get me a strike, sometimes 2 or 3 in a row. But I digress, it was not working yesterday. Every time it was my turn, I got up, confident and assured that I could beat an 8 year old kid. And every time I would always hit the splits like the very hard 8 10 split or worse yet gutter balls!

Well then I started noticing my nephew, he held the Wii remote every which way but loose and then ran up to the TV and threw his arm up over his head with a laugh and a yell let the button on the remote and thus the ball FLY!

and you know what?…..

That little guy bowled a strike almost every single TIME!
He was bowling sometimes 2 or 3 and once 4 strikes IN A ROW!

It was stunning to say the least, but then I said to myself
“Self?….why not give it a try? What have you got to lose?, certainly not your pride because he is ahead about 5 hundred points now!” OK I’m exaggerating a BIT.

So the next time it was my turn I told my nephew I am going to pretend I was him, he looked at me, nodded his head and said “That’s a good idea”.

So I stood a few feet away and said to myself “I am Elias, I am 8, I am having fun and just enjoying playing the game” then I ran toward the TV just like Elias, laughing and yelling and I let the bowl fly….

You know what I am going to say next right?

I swear, I bowled a strike…so I continued to bowl like my 8 year old nephew and almost every single time I bowled a strike, it was amazing and I had such fun.

What does this have to do with Animal Communication you ask?…

After the game we collapsed on the couch laughing hysterically.
When we were calmer Elias looked up at me and asked “Coryelle you can talk to animals right?”
I said, “Yes, you know that.”
He nodded his head yes and then looked back up at me and said “well when we talk to them it’s just like that right?”

He meant when we talk to the animals it should be just like Wii bowling, don’t over think it, don’t try to get a strike or to make something happen,
just let it happen and be free about it, laugh, and just enjoy the moment.

I have spoken at after school programs both in Germany and in the States, and at 4H clubs, and always, always the kids know that animal communication is possible, they believe it, there are no doubts (until they get older and they start believing what we tell them).

It’s just them sitting with their cat or dog or guinea pig or hanging out with their horse and talking to the animals and listening to what they have to say.

It is as natural to the children as breathing.

I love working with kids they remind me when I get too into my own head, to just laugh, run up to the TV and let the ball fly!

    Totally agree with your post. As adults we make everything so difficult and complex. We miss out on a lot.

    Hello there CG.. So good to see you here! You are most welcome. My nephew will be excited to hear that his words lead to helping people reconnect with the kid inside of them.
    Make your day spectacular!

    What a beautiful piece Coryelle, if only more of us could preserve that gift we have as children and take it with us into our adult life the world would becme a better place in no time.

    Thanks Adam, I think we truly have to try to remember everyday to keep that child-like love for life in us. For when we forget, that is when life seems to beat us up. Thanks for stopping by.

    Hi Coryelle,
    Such an inspiring post-one of these days we adults will learn to listen to the kids, who can teach us so much!
    Harmony,

    Hi Janet,
    So glad that your enjoyed the post.
    You are absolutely correct, The children are in many ways more connected then we are.
    Their insights are so simple yet powerful. We can always get so much from what they have to tell us.
    Thanks for commenting and thanks for visiting!

    Hello Coryelle,

    I just started teaching animal communication to kids. Sometimes I do feel I make it too simple but they seem to get it. However, if you have any suggestions, let me know. My classes are 2 hours but I seem to lose their attention after 1 1/2. Maybe 2 hours is too long.

    Thanks.

    Hi Judith, What works for me may not work for you because I don’t really have an exact idea of what I am going to be doing in any of my workshops. Whenever I teach a workshop I know I’m there are a guide but essentially I let the workshop just unfold they way that it wants to and let the animals and students follow what feels right to them. And I’m sure you are aware that the kids do this SOOOOo much better than we do, because they are coming from a place that we as adults want to get back TO. You are so lucky because you are doing a class with some of the best animal communicators in the world. That being said I would probably let them tell you when to end the class. Set time don’t work with the kids so if they start to get antsy after a hour or hour and a half then maybe letting them go outside to work on their skills and talk to bugs and other things might help. Or if they are not listening then I might just make the class an hour or hour and a half long and let it go at that.
    I don’t know your curriculum for your classes but maybe exercises like giving them photo of animals from all over the world, this gives them the opportunity to see what it is like to talk to a koala for example. I think that it is great what you are doing, so keep it up you are doing great!
