Many times people will say to me “I wish I could do what you do!”, and I always say the same thing “You CAN!”. In fact you Do you do it on a daily basis, it’s just that you’re not aware that you’re doing it. The difference between us is that I do it consistently on a daily basis and so can YOU.
In my workshops, I let my students know that doing any intuitive work is like going to the gym. When you first go you don’t start lifting the 100lb weights (well maybe some of you do ;-)) but normally you start off with the lighter weights and eventually build up to the heavier ones. This is the same with animal communication, the more you do it the stronger & better at it you become.
So, I put together 5 tips that will help start your journey with animal communication.
1. See All Animals As Equals
It’s really important that when talking with an animal you see them as your equal, we have a tendency to either put animals on pedestals believing that most humans are bad and animals are good, or the opposite seeing them from a vantage of superiority and ignorance believing that animals are less than humans, or not as smart, or unable to feel or reason like we do. Either mindset will keep you from hearing the communications and it holds you from truly opening up to them as well. Animals don’t see us as better or less than they are, they see every being as fellow beings with a purpose and living together, sharing lives and experiences. When you come from the place of thinking that someone is less or more than you are, you close yourself off to truly connecting with that being. For example, think about someone you REALLY admire, and now think how you would try talking to them for maybe the first time, and coming from a place of pedestal admiration. You would perhaps be stuttering or flustered preventing you from being able to have a meaningful conversation, and hearing what they other saying to you. But, when you come from a place of equality, respect, openness and love for yourself and the animals, your communications come through stronger and more powerfully.
2. Trust In Your Intuitive Ability
When we came into this life we were so naturally tapped into our intuitive abilities that we were magnificent beings to behold. As we grew, some of us (me included) stopped tapping in as often, maybe because we were told not to, or we wanted to fit in, or we simple stopped believing in it, the list goes on and on. But seeing all beings on this planet as living energy that you’re able to communicate and connect with IS the natural order of things. Seeing the world with limitations and separations is NOT, that’s why it feels so awful to us when we do it. We learned to ignore our inner guidance and we began to see the world in a limiting way, after a while it became “normal”. Tapping back into your natural intuitive ways is really easy but you have to TRUST that they exists. Now, do I always listen to my inner guidance, or believe that the communications that I’m getting are right? Well..honestly Yes I do….did I always? NOPE! It came from honing my skills. Even if that trust doesn’t seem like it’s very big, it will grow and the more you tap into your natural intuitive abilities the more you’ll start to KNOW that it’s pure communication and nothing else. Especially when you begin to receive things that you would have never even thought of receiving, your imagination didn’t even come into play because the answer is something you would have never even thought of on your own.
3. Slowing Down The “Mileage Mind” with Meditation
Meditation is a best way to slow down the chatter and clear your mind so that the communications come in more freely. Start slow, sit in a chair 2 minutes and just concentrate on your breathing. The goal is not to clearer your mind of any and all thoughts. Thoughts will come in, let them, let them come in and float out like feathers and if you get stuck on a thought just bring your attention back to your breath. Light a candle, put on some nice mediation music, listen to a guided mediation like the one that I’ve recorded the “Heart To Heart” Mediation it’s my 8 minute meditation guiding you through a technique that I use to communicate with animals. Guided meditations are great because they give you something to concentrate on other than the mind chatter. Whatever you use start off slow 1 -2 minutes and adding another minute every day or every other day. Meditation is a powerful tool in helping you tap back into your animal communication abilities.
4. Enjoy The Discovery Of How You Receive Communications
When you first begin this journey will will begin to notice HOW you receive your messages. The 3 most well-known are the 3 Clairs: clairvoyance (Inner vision), clairaudience (inner hearing) and clairsentience (inner sensing or knowing). You may also receive, smells, tastes, and even sensation in your body. Take note of how you receive your communications it will show you which receiving modality is more powerful for you either Visual, Auditory or Kinesthetic, you may even be a combination of 2 or even all three. Just allow the communications to come how they come. Try not to put limitations on your communications, just enjoy and make note of how they come to you.

5. How Do You Get To Be An Animal Communicator?…..Practice, Practice, Practice!
Here today, gone tomorrow. When I was first learning German I took a class once a week I would do pretty well during the class and even a day or 2 after but by the following week my German had gotten lousy again. When I was LIVING in Germany and speaking the language everyday my German speaking & writing abilities went through the roof. Animal Communication IS another language so, do it as often as you can and make a habit of doing it. Talk you your pets, talk to your neighbors pets, talk to your bosses pets, take a walk in nature and talk to the animals you meet there, communicate as much, and as often as you can. Soon you’ll be listening, learning and conversing with any animal that you choose. Animal communication can give you that DELICIOUS feeling of truly being connected to all living things and in no time it will begin to feel Normal to you. A tip is to record your communications, either by writing them down or recording them on video or digitally. I can’t tell you how often I have looked back in my book of communications to find delights and tidbits that I would have forgotten if I hadn’t recorded them, it’s also a great way for you to see how much progress you’ve made.
