I could provide you with a precise definition of animal communication. I could tell you about telepathy, or that it works through frequencies.
I could describe pioneers in this field, often women, who decided to have faith in their abilities and started training those who want to advance this field.
But instead I have decided to tell you that animal communication helps you to be in direct contact with animals. That it is a very natural, non-verbal type of communication, and very subtle.
Animal communication consists of images, sound, scents, feelings… and all of us experience this every day, without being aware of it.
I would like to tell you that animal communication is not only here to provide you with answers to your questions.
Of course, you will learn how your animal feels. You’ll get their input on a problem you might be experiencing, or learn how they feel about the arrival of a new pet. You’ll let them know that a new-born is coming, or that you plan to move house. Also you’ll be able to understand why they are ill, and even ask them how they see the end of their life.
But with animal communication you will go further: you’ll open the door to another “dimension”. You will come to realize that animals are not primitive beings with limited intelligence and ability (what we’ve been thinking for ages). You will regard animals differently, as beings gifted with a true consciousness, who think, reflect, and feel – far beyond what you can imagine.
You will come to understand that they are not with us only to be our companions, or to feed us.
You’ll understand that they do more than merely accompany us: animals are here with us, and are here for us.
Penelope Smith is a well-known animal communicator who formulated a code of ethics for interspecies communicators, in 1990.
I want to share it with you:
1/ Our motivation is compassion for all beings and a desire to help all species understand each other better, particularly to help restore the lost human ability to freely and directly communicate with other species.
2/ We honor those that come to us for help, not judging, condemning, or invalidating them for their mistakes or misunderstanding but honoring their desire for change and harmony.
3/ We know that to keep this work as pure and harmonious as possible requires that we continually grow spiritually. We realize that telepathic communication can be clouded or overlaid by our own unfulfilled emotions, critical judgments, or lack of love for self and others. We walk in humility, willing to recognize and clear up our own errors in understanding others’ communication (human and non-human alike).
4/ We cultivate knowledge and understanding of the dynamics of human, non-human, and interspecies behavior and relationships, to increase the good results of our work. We get whatever education and/or personal help we need to do our work effectively, with compassion, respect, joy, and harmony.
5/ We seek to draw out the best in everyone and increase understanding toward mutual resolution of problems. We go only where we are asked to help, so that others are receptive and we truly can help. We respect the feelings and ideas of others and work for interspecies understanding, not pitting one side against another but walking with compassion for all. We acknowledge the things that we cannot change and continue where our work can be most effective.
6/ We respect the privacy of people and animal companions we work with, and honor their desire for confidentiality.
7/ While doing our best to help, we allow others their own dignity and help them to help their animal companions. We cultivate understanding and ability in others, rather than dependence on our ability. We offer people ways to be involved in understanding and growth with their fellow beings of other species.
8/ We acknowledge our limitations, seeking help from other professionals as needed. It is not our job to name and treat diseases, and we refer people to veterinarians for diagnosis of physical illness. We may relay animals’ ideas, feelings, pains, symptoms, as they describe them or as we feel or perceive them, and this may be helpful to veterinary health professionals. We may also assist through handling of stresses, counseling, and other gentle healing methods. We let clients decide for themselves how to work with healing their animal companions’ distress, disease, or injury, given all the information available.
9/ The goal of any consultation, lecture, workshop, or interspecies experience is more communication, balance, compassion, understanding, and communion among all beings. We follow our heart, honoring the spirit and life of all beings as One.
