Animal communication is a very simple technique enabling the communicator to receive information telepathically from an animal. Information will be in the form of smell, pictures, words, sensation or thoughts.
The information gathered during a communication will be translated and then conveyed to the guardian of the animal.
Animals tune in to our moods or events with radar like precision because they tune in telepathically to us all the time. Any animal lovers will tell you stories about a dog knowing when their guardian is returning home, a cat being already in the kitchen when their guardian is thinking of feeding them, and the list goes on.
We can learn to use telepathy, which is dormant in most of us, to tune in to our beloved companions.
Anyone can learn to communicate with animals; no need to be a psychic!
It is not a gift but an acquired skill.
The more practice a student of animal communication will do, the better and clearer the communication will be. No mystery or super power here, just an old fashioned learnt skill.
The ingredient for a successful animal communication is unconditional love for the animals, with no judgement. Just a genuine interest for their well-being is what is required for animals to communicate.
What happens during a communication with an animal and how does it work?
The communicator will practice being present for the animal.
In other words, the mind of the communicator will be blank (all thoughts related to the communicator's life will be on standby) in order to receive the information given by the animal.
By allowing their mind to be an empty canvas, a communicator will receive vivid information related to the animal thoughts, expectations, anxiety etc.
To illustrate how it works, think of a radio station, the airwaves are not visible but yet we can listen to the radio as the airwaves are emitting the music and words through distance and countries. The radio station acts as a sender and your radio at home or in your car acts as a receiver.
It is the same during communication: distance, time and language are not a barrier, the airwaves sent from an animal (sender) will find a receiver: the animal communicator who will tune in, and in turn will give their own interpretation of what the animal try to convey to the guardian of the animal (music and words).
Simple isn't it?
Do animals really have emotions and feelings?
Humans do not have exclusive rights on emotions and feelings.
Animals experience a vast array of emotions like us.
They have their likes and dislikes, they grieve for their friends who pass away, they miss their guardians when they are on holiday, they fall in love, they argue with their mates, they have aches and pains like us, they can experience depression, anxiety, fear of abandonment, loneliness. They can be jealous even envious and some have very big egos too.
So, during communication, some of their character traits and emotions will be shown in a very simple fashion to the communicator. Animals do not play mind games, they tell things as they are.
What are the benefits of animal communication?
Animal communication can be useful in many ways:
To find out the likes and dislikes of your animal
After a house move, how is your animal feeling, are they upset? Happy? Etc.
Do they have a message for you?
How to make your pet's life easier and more comfortable.
To see if the pet you are thinking of purchasing will be suitable for your household and lifestyle (particularly with parrots).
To find out how they feel about a new arrival in the family (other pet or a baby).
After surgery, to ask the animal what can be done to make things better for them
Is their treatment ok or do they suffer from side effects?
To help the animal to understand why they have to go to the vet.
Sometimes to detect physical problems in your animal and therefore prompting a visit to the vet.
Remember that animal communication is not a replacement for veterinary care.
However, sometimes a vet won't find the cause of a specific problem and a communicator might be able to pinpoint some other causes for the underlying physical problem!
To help rescue animals with a past, to help them to let go of the past.
To help your pet to overcome depression, grief, sadness etc.
Seasonal problems; like fireworks, thunder etc, how to resolve their problems related to frightening sounds.
To resolve emotional traumas or problems.
Jealousy with other household pets or with one of the humans in the house!
To help your beloved companion to pass on (very powerful and humbling experience).
To contact your departed beloved pet. Remember animal communication is beyond, time and space. So a departed pet can be contacted in the same fashion as normal animal communication.
To deepen the existing bond between you and your companion.
Does animal communication resolve all problems encountered with animals?
Almost, as long as the animal is happy to make the necessary changes to please their human guardians.
However, animal communication does not provide miracles.
For example, if an animal is terminally ill, despite absent healing being sent to the animal, or any treatment, alternative therapies etc, the animal will not make a speedy recovery. What animal communication will do is to support and comfort the animal towards the final stage, even helping the animal to pass on.
Another example: feather plucking in parrots. Most of the time this is an ingrained habit (a bit like nail biting in humans), and it can takes months to see a result, if any.
The animal knows that it is not a requirement to feather pluck and that it is distressing to their guardians, but yet they cannot stop (because they are “addicted” to feather plucking, like some humans are addicted to smoking for example).
In other words, if an animal is happy to collaborate with the communicator, animal behaviourist, animal trainer and/or their guardian, animal communication will do wonders with spectacular results in some cases.
If no collaboration can be established, then it can be difficult to see any results. Some animals refuse to communicate point blank and we have just to respect their wishes.
The communicator can only make suggestions to an animal; a communicator will not dominate an animal and try to push their own will onto an animal. This is totally unacceptable and unethical.
Sometimes a problem encountered with an animal is more the domain of an animal trainer or behaviourist! Oephebia will discuss with you what therapy would be most appropriate, particularly if you animal have an aggression problem.
Do professional people involved in animal welfare use animal communicators?
Some professionals like animal behaviourists and animal trainers are quite open to the idea of animal communication. It can really enhance their work by having a communicator expressing on behalf of the animal what the animal feel about their training etc.
Some vets (usually homeopathic or using complementary therapies) welcome animal communication.
Others are more cautious whilst others still, dismiss the whole concept together.
A few animal organisations, charities, shelters and sanctuaries are using animal communicators regularly. It helps them to understand the animals in their care more rapidly and to act accordingly on information received during a communication to provide better care for the animals.
Oephebia has been involved with a few animal organisations to help their animals (see the testimonials page).
