is communion. The realization of oneself
which is love."
Animal communication is a communion with the soul of another species where thoughts, feelings and emotions are exchanged telepathically.
Animals think in pictures and see the images behind our thoughts and words. This is why your dog is waiting by your front door before you even leave the office. Miles away, your animal has ‘read’ your mind.
Our animals see the image of home as soon as the thought form of home enters your mind. The language of animals is holistic, transcending words, encompassing emotion,
Thoughts are energy. Energy can be sent and received miles away, because it has no boundaries. All of us can feel another's energy. With practice, we can feel it at greater distances away. For me, connecting to an animal is possible when my mind is relaxed and quiet, and as present as possible. I believe years of visual art and meditation set the foundation for the skills I have today. I have learned to sit long periods in silence and focused attention. In order to join with another being’s mind I connect with a presence much greater than myself (I imagine my consciousness rising up and out through the crown chakra). Then I am able to connect with the animal through the heart chakra. I stay present and relaxed to hear thoughts and see images (which seem to appear just above my physical eyes at the brow chakra,) and I validate my findings with physical sensations felt just above the navel (the solar plexus or third chakra.) In other words, I incorporate my whole body. Animal communicaton is a holistic language. When we step out of the way and drop judgments and beliefs about animals, we open to receive on many levels. We are all mothers of intuition and we are all complex beings of communication.
