If you have pets, you may have questioned if they are aware of your thoughts. When you start planning a trip to the vet, your cat may hide. When you think about going out to play, your dog may run in circles. Both of these occurrences can be explained logically. Your cat may have heard you take the carrier off the shelf, and your dog may have noticed you looking at a favorite ball.
Pet psychics, sometimes known as animal intuitives or animal communicators, have a different take on these happenings. Most pet psychics believe that you speak with your pets telepathically all of the time without even realizing it. Because of mental signals you transmit, your cat hides and your dog prepares to play, not because of your actions.
Psychics for pets claim to be able to go one step farther. They communicate with animals by using their brains. Some psychics claim to be able to communicate with wild animals, but most focus on pets. They communicate with pet owners over the phone or in person, referring to them as human companions. They then transfer telepathic signals to and from pets for a fee. Psychics frequently utilize images or descriptions to make contact with dogs who aren’t present.
People occasionally just want to check in on their pets. However, many individuals consult pet psychics for a specific reason, such as:
- The pet has gone missing, and its owner is trying to locate it or persuade it to return home. (Not all pet psychics accept situations of lost pets.)
- The pet is misbehaving, and its owner wants to know why and how to convince it to stop.
- The pet is severely ill or damaged, and its owner is debating whether or not to euthanize it.
- The pet has passed away, and the owner wishes to communicate with the spirit of the animal. (Only a few pet psychics will operate as mediums for pets who have passed away.)
This type of animal communication is a strange occurrence. It’s a mix of telepathy and clairvoyance, both of which are extrasensory perception abilities (ESP). The majority of pet psychics describe it in terms of energy.
The frequencies used to deliver over-the-air TV and radio signals are part of the radio spectrum. X-rays and visible light are also included.
Electromagnetic energy, like the force in “Star Wars,” surrounds and penetrates everything in the universe, according to pet psychics. Although this energy is part of the radio spectrum, scientists have yet to discover how to detect it. Pet psychics may communicate with animals via energy, regardless of how far away they are or if they are still alive.
Pet Psychic Methods
Animal communication is often described by pet psychics as a gift they found at a young age. For example, due to a childhood hearing loss, Sonya Fitzpatrick, host of Animal Planet’s “The Pet Psychic,” remembers building bonds with animals [ref]. Others became interested in it as adults, sometimes after watching Fitzpatrick’s television show. Some psychics claim to have an instinctive grasp of how to communicate with animals, while others claim to have learnt from books or workshops.
Regardless of when and how pet psychics got their abilities, they all describe the same basic processes for communicating with animals. Many people use J. Allen Boone’s 1954 book “Kinship with All Life” as a source for their methods. Here’s how it usually goes:
- The psychic unwinds and clears her thoughts.
- She makes connect with the animal’s energy by using her mind.
- To grab the animal’s attention, she visualizes it and telepathically shouts its name.
- She poses a query to the animal, usually by sending a picture. In addition to or instead of words, the psychic may utilize visuals.
- The psychic imagines a response from the animal and waits for it. Many people describe the responses as visuals or word combinations.
- Some others, such as Shira Plotzker, a New York pet psychic, believe that animals answer with childlike voices [ref].
- She accepts any response she receives and acknowledges receiving it.
- The psychic relays the animal’s responses to its owner and, if necessary, asks additional questions. The psychic may also deliver messages from the owner to the pet. The psychic will picture the solution rather than the problem if the owner wishes to modify a pet’s undesirable behavior.
Some pet psychics will scan the body of the pet to determine health issues. If the psychic detects illness or injury in the pet, she will send healing energy.
This technique appears to make sense to some animal enthusiasts. However, harnessing energy to communicate with animals is a contentious topic. Scientists have yet to discover conclusive proof of:
- The fact that this type of electromagnetic radiation exists
- Sensory organs that humans and animals could employ to detect or transfer signals utilizing energy
- Furthermore, the energy described by pet psychics can move across any distance and in any direction in an instant. Electromagnetic energy that acts in this manner has yet to be identified by scientists.
- Pet psychics also make a number of assumptions regarding animals’ intelligence and self-awareness. Next, we’ll take a closer look at those.
Animal Emotions and Intelligence
Sonya Fitzpatrick details multiple psychic encounters with animals in her book “What the Animals Tell Me.” She describes animals as shockingly intelligent and emotionally sophisticated in her anecdotes. They look a lot like people trapped within the bodies of animals. Animals recall experiences from the past during her sessions. They are able to feel and express emotions, as well as reflect on their sentiments. Similar stories are told by other psychics. Animals, according to pet psychics, are conscious, self-aware, and capable of thinking and feeling emotions in the same manner that humans do.
Many individuals have observed their pets acting in ways that suggest they are aware of emotions. When their owners leave the house, some dogs whimper, and some cats appear to be envious of other animals. However, scientists are divided on whether these are accurate predictors of actual emotion. Emotions are notoriously difficult to define, with philosophers, psychologists, and medical practitioners disagreeing on what they are and how they function in humans. Because animals are unable to express their feelings in the same manner that humans do, studying their emotions is considerably more difficult.
Hormone and neurotransmitter levels can also provide the impression that an animal is feeling emotions. However, these substances do not always cause feelings. Hormones like oxytocin, for example, increase connection between mothers and their young in most mammals. As a result, a caring mother dog may appear to adore her offspring. Her need to feed, bathe, and care for her children, on the other hand, may not be seen as love. As a result, many scientists are wary of using animal behavior as evidence of emotional capacity.
Recent study, on the other hand, reveals that animals do experience emotions such as joy, anger, and grief. They are also affected by pain and stress. Animals can feel different emotions, according to research done by neuroscientist Jaak Panskipp. The periaqueductal gray (PAG), a primordial part of the brain, provides basic emotional effects in all mammals, including humans, according to Panskipp.
