January 27, 2015 – Have you taken the Two-Week Challenge I set out for you some weeks ago? Have you practiced talking to your animal companions as though you were speaking with a family member? Are you using the positive language I explained to ensure the visual picture the animal picks up is the one you want…and not the opposite one that is most often the case? If you’ve done these things for a couple of weeks, you should be seeing signs that your animal friends are paying closer attention to you.
Is there more? While we know our dogs’ and cats’ vocabularies might be good…are they hearing the whispers of your thoughts much more clearly? What’s going on in those furry minds of theirs?
When Animals Know You’re on Your Way Home
The amazing bond between an animal and their human family has been written about and studied at major universities countless times. If you have a dog, you’ll often see him get up from a sound sleep or a game he’d been absorbed-in, just to go sit at the door or window a few minutes before a family member returns. I’ve caught several guilty looks from dogs of ours who’d made a habit of this, and then slept right until the door opened and my husband walked in! It’s a cross between astonishment that it even happened, a squint-eyed glare at each of us wondering if we’d played a trick on them that was-not-funny, and eventually a moment of sheepishness – taking the blame for missing their advanced cue that he was on his way. How embarrassing!
It’s happened with other dogs we know, too. We board one or two dogs in our home on occasion and more often than not, there’s a change in the dog’s behavior on the day the family is returning home. They are more restless, they make more visits to the windows and front door (because that’s the one mom and dad brought them through), and their minds clearly aren’t on the games we’d play.
Occasionally the family doesn’t pick them up that same day…either because it’s too late or a snow storm prevents it, and when we spend time explaining this and telling the dogs when it is they’ll truly go home, they settle down again. Clearly something is going on there. They know. They’re listening. They’re picking up thoughts telepathically.
Author Rupert Sheldrake wrote a book called, Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home. He provides many examples of communication between animals and their families, and how well the animals know our thoughts. Lynn Taggert’s book, The Field, discusses the scientific experiments done that clearly show an animal’s energy as light (we call it our aura sometimes) and how in the experiments that light would move towards another animal as communication occurred. I’ve seen this myself done with people going through a range of emotions and thoughts about the other person in the test.
Do Your Pets and Other Animals Communicate Like this all the Time?
So…do our animals communicate among themselves all the time…and with us?
In her first book, Straight from the Horse’s Mouth, well-known animal communicator Amelia Kincade talks about her first contact with a communicator and how she went in thinking it would be all rubbish. But her cat Rodney wasn’t passing up the opportunity to speak and it soon led Amelia down a path, with the amazing Rodney, that would change her life forever. By her next book, The Language of Miracles, she had become a sought-after communicator and had studied the science of telepathy with relation to quantum physics and field theory. Right up my alley!
Her journey, though different from other animal communicators in many ways, gives a fascinating look into the barely perceptive whispers, the gut feelings, and the solid science that goes with explaining how animals (and that includes us) communicate at a non-verbal level. Be prepared, though, if you decide to read her second book. It covers some hard-to-grasp science and theories that if you’re not already familiar with, will make your brain hurt!
Heading Forward with Animal Communication
We can take so many approaches to animal communication as we go forward in this blog. Some show the reasons why it works. Others show it works through indisputable accounts from everyday people. And other approaches enable you to try experiments of your own.
Some of you might be interested in reading the tales, others will want to jump in. As this series of articles progresses, I’ll touch on a little of everything so you can either stick within your comfort zone or explore as you absorb more of the science going on in the background.
For now – keep practicing by just being yourself and recognizing your animal friends, no matter what their size or shape, as an equal friend.
For day 27 of 365 in this pet sitting year, we had our usual group of regular clients during the lunch period and I researched information for this article. Even though it was still frigid outside, we had brilliant sun, which our canary loves. He spent the day in the living room where the light is better and he listened to the tunes he loves to sing with. I think he’ll be tucked-in a little earlier tonight. He’s had a big day.
Until next time…have fun out there!
