Animals compose an exquisite part of life on our planet. Birds fill the air with sweet songs, and deer, bear, and foxes live among the forests. Wild animals portray elements of the soul in indigenous cultures, and domestic animals help with daily life.
All animals have a voice; they speak from the heart. Hearing and speaking through the heart intuitively is the best communication, but there are many ways to begin. (Most people are unaware of how often they accurately hear their pets.)
In general, domestic animals come into our lives to help, calm emotion, and teach us to heal. They are quite aware of energy. Cats, dogs, horses, and most animals can see and respond to color. Their world – and perceptions – are quite different from generally accepted “truth”.
Here are a few discoveries, followed by tips for communicating with a pet.
- Cats and dogs actually clear your negative energy. When your energy is toxic, they absorb and transmute it. (Cats prefer negative energy and thrive on it. They often sleep on a sore part of the body, electrical devices, or sleep near the computer. Dogs prefer positive energy and usually sleep in a space that is higher in energy.)
- Dogs, cats, and horses respond strongly to color. Changing the color of a food bowl, collar, leash, or cushion can positively shift their energy.
- Animals are often a reflection of your energy, acting out your anxiety, depression, or grief. When we change our vibration, they do the same. (Some animals have been traumatized, and their behavior results from previous events.)
- Like most beings on the planet, animals love being told that they’re beautiful and adored. They also want recognition when they behave correctly.
- Horses have a very long memory and love stories as well as exciting, pleasurable events. (Think new saddle or bridle and riding with friends.)
Communicating with Your Pet
- When you fill the water bowl, decide to walk the dog, or call the cat, your pet is probably projecting the image or feeling. Notice the difference between automatic action and a sudden desire to take care of your pet.
- Dogs and cats respond well to “pictures”. It’s easier for them to understand. See the dog sitting before you say the command. See the outdoor cat at the door when you can’t find it. Imagine the animals coming to you before you call. (Some pets speak English better than others, but they all speak in imagery – or a sharp focus on whatever you want to communicate.)
- Initially, it’s wise to work with only one or two images. For example, see the dog running and playing outside – or coming to you. Try to create a feeling of happiness along with the image.
- When a pet responds to an image, praise them so they understand that you are communicating with them. (Think of how many thoughts and images you create each day!) Ask them to let you know how they feel. If you receive impressions, say them aloud.
- When you feel happy and light, express your pleasure so your animals can enjoy it with you. Odd as it sounds, this is one of the best ways of creating an intuitive bond with a pet.
- After meditation or a walk, think about your heart connecting with your pet’s heart. Think about how much you love them, and say it in words. (Love is the essence of all higher communication.)
