For a beginner, I would suggest a quiet meditation prior to trying the process. This will relax you and put you into the correct frame of mind to receive information. Try to communicate with a close friend’s pet when you first begin. Do not try this with your own pet. You know too much about them to put this exercise to the test!
To start the process, sit in a quiet place, clear your mind, look softly at the animal’s picture or envision them in your head (if you know them well, this should be easy). Introduce yourself to the animal, tell them you’d like to ask them a question and see if it is okay that you talk with them. Wait for a response. This introduction is performed out of respect for the animal.
You may “hear” a reply or just get a sense of knowing what the response was. If you receive the go-ahead, ask the animal a question in your head and the first piece of information you receive, either by “hearing”, “knowing”, or “seeing visually in your head” will be your answer. You should experience the response flying into your head very quickly. Sometimes it seems you didn’t even get the entire question out of your mind and you’ve already received an answer – it’s that quick! Once you receive the answer, thank the animal for speaking with you, it’s only common courtesy! Your “thank you for speaking with me” will indicate to the animal that your session is ended and you are disconnecting from them.
Do NOT tell the pet’s owner ahead of time what question you will be asking but be sure that the answer will be easy to obtain from the owner. Write down the response of the pet, thank the pet for speaking to you then call the owner to tell them the question and the answer that you received. Don’t be disappointed if what you heard doesn’t match the owner’s reply. Just keep practicing and believe in yourself!
Listed below are some easy questions to ask your pet friend when you first start communicating:
What is your favorite toy?
What treat do you like the best?
Where do you sleep?
As you practice your animal communication skills, remember to not say anything that is not true or did not come from the animal. Have fun with the process and you will learn a lot. Our animal companions have a sense of humor and will say the funniest things, much like children! Be aware, they may decide to open up to you and tell you some very personal information regarding their home life. Please be sensitive to all individuals involved and only repeat disclosures that will not embarrass your friends or relatives. By the way, some animals may not wish to communicate with you and that is okay. Simply tell them ‘thank you’ maybe they will wish to talk at another time. Be honest if the animal declines to talk and tell your client/friend that their companion did not wish to communicate at this time.
Have fun, practice and be open to what you will hear! Our pets say the darnest things!
