4 Tips for Successful Animal Communication Part 1: Mindset and Intuition – A two-part blog series by WU World Changer Robyn Fritz!
Ready to “learn-up” with your animals? Try some simple animal communication tips.
As both an animal communicator and someone who has chosen a life with animals, a multi-species family, I will help you enhance your connection with your own animals in this two-part series on four tips to successful animal communication or mind-to-mind (telepathic) connection.
Tip 1: Check Your Mindset.
We, humans, live in a cultural paradigm that says we’re in charge of the planet. The problem is, it’s wrong, and it keeps us from claiming our best lives, including deepening the human-animal bond. The truth? All life is equal, everything has a soul, is conscious, has a job, a responsibility to do it, and free choice no matter the body it wears. Most of us are at least unconsciously living this concept by thinking of our animals as family, not pets, demonstrating that we have “learned-up” from the ancient necessity to survive to experiencing heart and soul growth with animals as family.
If you see animals as subservient, as property, it will never seriously occur to you to initiate an intelligent conversation with them. Or, for that matter, respond to one directed to you.
If, however, you see animals as equal, autonomous beings who think and feel and deserve respect, compassion, and consideration exactly like you do you have created a space where a conversation is possible.
The good news is we’re already talking with our animals every day through our interactions with them. We ask if they want to go for a walk or want a treat. Granted, they have a strong survival mode, so they know how to play us to get what they want and need, but they are also interacting with us, which requires intelligence and understanding.
If you change your mindset to think of connecting with animals as respectfully and consciously as you do with your human friends, you’ve taken the first step toward successful communication.
Tip 2: Learn How your Intuition Works.
Other beings, including animals, communicate with us telepathically because they don’t have human vocal cords (yes, it’s that simple). But telepathy is also a universal communication tool that supports communication across space (distance) and time. Just like any tool, though, telepathy takes practice.
For humans, that’s learning how your intuition works. Experiment to learn how your unique combination of intuitive seeing (seeing pictures, auras, colors), feeling (emotions, sensations), hearing (hearing words and thoughts), and knowing works. In developing your intuition, you are learning another language, the language of connection with all life.
Of course, it takes practice, so in next month’s article, I’ll give you simple, common sense tips on how to make animal communication part of your daily life (hint: consider point-of-view). But for now, a story that will get you thinking.
Everyone exploring animal communication wants answers to questions. In considering the first question you’d ask your dog or cat, be crafty. Good conversation starters turn the focus away from you and onto them, so consider a variation on “What’s up with you?”
For example, when I was first learning to speak to my Cavalier King Charles spaniel Murphy in an animal communication class, I was so excited! Everyone else was asking about tough relationship issues, so I was prepared for my brilliant girl to solve life’s greatest mystery.
Taking a deep breath, I asked, “Murphy, what would you like to say to me?”
She looked me straight in the eye and said, “More cookies.”
Everybody heard her and cracked up. I was underwhelmed until I realized that I had actually expressed interest in her thoughts, and heard her response. If you’re listening, you’ll hear what your animals want to say, even if it seems boring to you.
It was also a poignant reminder of one of our first conversations, where I was just learning that animal communication was real, and wondering if I’d ever get it.
Murphy looked solemnly at me and said to another person: “She talks me to all the time and I talk back, but she hardly ever listens.”
That’s probably where most of us are with our animals: talking but not always listening. Join me next month for my next article I will give practical tips on how to do just that.
