Animal Training with Animal Communication

Animal communication – Listen, understand and make a difference….

This is what I teach during animal communication workshops and this is what I tell my clients.  Being able to communicate with an animal is a beautiful thing, a gift and something that anyone can learn how to do.  Most children can do this from the youngest of ages, but lose the ability when they are told that they imagined it as the family pet or the bird in the garden ‘cannot talk’.  In someways this is true, this kind of communication is not like the sort that you would have over a cup of tea with a friend, this is an energetic connection that uses the unspoken word and the universal language of the soul.

When communicating with an animal it is possible to ask questions and be given information in the form of thoughts, feelings and senses, it is also possible to give information back  – this is a two way connection.  Sound a bit too weird for you?  Think about it this way; we are made up of energy and so are animals, plants and all other living things.  This energy has no cut off point.  It is when we become aware of this that people talk of experiencing ‘oneness’ – a feeling of total connection with the world around, everything in it, the wider universe and Source energy.

I am writing today firstly as an animal communicator, secondly as a retired canine behaviour specialist / trainer and a Usui Reiki Master / Teacher.  I would like to speak to you, dear reader, about the rise in popularity of animal communication, which is fantastic, but also my concern, firstly for peoples’ expectations of this and how some people are attempting to use it.  I say attempting because I do not believe they will be successful.  I have recently dipped my toe in the waters of a social media group for animal communication as I thought I should see what was going on in wider areas of my chosen field.  I was shocked!  The page had many desperate people asking communicators to tell their horses to stop throwing them off, their dogs to stop barking or biting them.  No! No! No! This is not how it works; let’s go back to “Listen, understand, make a difference.”

The job of the communicator is to listen to predominantly what the animal wants to share with them, questions can be asked, but it is a choice as to whether they will be answered.  Therefore in the case of an animal who is displaying problem behaviours the communicator can often find out whether the animal is experiencing some physical pain or discomfort that could cause it to behave in a certain way, the communicator can often find out if there is an emotional cause either in the here and now or perhaps in it’s history that can be causing a behavioural response and so on.

Whilst listening the communicator can show empathy for the animal and show the animal that he or she understands what has been shared. They can then let the animal know that they will do their best to help the situation. The important part of the job is to relay to the animal’s guardian what the animal has told them.  Perhaps the animal needs to see a vet to help with an underlying health issue that had not been previously picked up, sometimes it can be as simple as moving the animal’s sleeping area to a place they feel more settled and quite often it is about the human modifying their own behaviour.  Make a difference!  Animals are extremely sensitive to the moods and emotions of the people in their lives and far more affected by them than was previously thought – I am sure that science will find a way to measure this at some point, but until then please take my word for it.

Let’s imagine a possible scenario of a dog that is biting the owner.  It is highly unlikely that a communicator simply asking the dog to stop will work unless the reason for the behaviour is addressed, sometimes the animal is able to give the reason and therefore a solution can be found, however, sometimes this may require another professional being consulted such as a behaviourist or a veterinarian.  An adult dog that has been with it’s humans from a puppy who is still biting them has, in some way, been mis-managed, sometimes this is as simple as not teaching a puppy bite inhibition because it is too cute, sometimes it is a total lack of understanding about what makes the dog tick, putting human thoughts, feelings and behavioural expectations onto it, in a nutshell anthropomorphisation of the dog.  Another possible reason could be that the dog is picking up on the energy of the home environment, a house where there is conflict, for example, can provoke problem behaviours in animals who are sensitive to this and much like a child who is feeling disturbed they can respond to this with certain behaviours as a means to release stress or elicit the attention that they crave.

On the afore mentioned social media group somebody had posted a picture of a horse who was displaying behaviours when ridden that were denting the rider’s confidence.  I made a connection, along with other communicators and the horse gave each and every one of us the same information; that is has pain along it’s back which is worse when ridden and some discomfort in his hind leg.  This was relayed to the human who was not particularly interested in the pain of the horse and still wanted people to tell it to stop bolting.  We listened, we understood, but whether we could make a difference to this animal I am not sure.  I hope that after a little time to think that the messages will be heard.

The point of this blog post is to educate.  As I mentioned before animal communication is a beautiful thing, it enables us to listen, understand and make a difference.  It is NOT a means of exerting control over another sentient being.  If we try then the animal will simple cease to communicate.  I am sure if you were to talk to a number of professional communicators they would tell you the same thing; that sometimes the guardian of the animal can get in the way of a clear connection.

Let us not place our human need for control onto this gift.  Let us continue to listen to the whispers of our animal companions so that we can gain a greater understanding of the world from their perspective.

animal spirit communication

Animals Helping Each Other

Many of us have witnessed altruistic behaviour from our animal companions towards us and other animals, but it is less common to experience help from one dog to another when one of the dogs is in spirit.

Today I was driving my car chanting to Jonathan Goldman’s Reiki chants.  I was off to attend a monthly lunch meeting with my old friends and former colleagues, a pair of very grounded, matter of fact retired veterinary nurses, from my time in veterinary practice many moons ago!  Chanting away to the music is something that I often do especially on long car journeys.  I hasten to add only when there are no other passengers to inflict this on!

Quite suddenly one of my friend’s dogs who passed away many years ago sprung into my mind with a very clear introduction, I saw her wet nose, whiskery muzzle and then heard her say ‘Hello it is Maisy Jones here.’  Not her real name, but the fact that she used my friend’s surname made me chuckle.  I replied with my hellos and nice to hear from you before asking if everything was ok or if she had something to tell me.  My first question was is my friend alright to which she replied yes, she then communicated with me that she was concerned about Esther the current canine in the Jones household.

Just to explain; Maisy and Esther never met in the physical world, Esther came along some time after Maisy had passed away.  I asked what the problem was and she told me that there was pain in Esther’s left hip and across her lower back and that she felt tired and was perhaps doing too much on her walks which was not helping.

Naturally when I met my friend the first thing I asked was if her dog was ok and she told me that she wasn’t.  When I told her my findings she was able to corroborate everything Maisy had told me. This was also the confirmation that she needed for her to begin to slow down on walks and get Esther a little more help to make her more comfortable.  It was a realisation that perhaps her dog was in more discomfort than she had realised.

I am sharing this with you as this is the first time I have ever had an animal come through from spirit to me to help another animal that they have never had a physical connection with.  What an absolute joy and gift to be given that in the world of spirit animals are out there looking out for each other even when the connection is through the pet parent.

Animal communication:  Listen, understand, make a difference.
