How to Talk to Animals: Psychic Connections and Telepathy
Can Anyone Talk to Animals?
Okay, so I am not Dr. Doolittle, however, I have been blessed with the ability to communicate with animals and have used it since I was a small child. Talking with animals may seem like something from a Hugh Lofting book, but it is possible for anyone to acquire the skill to do so. The key is patience and love.
In this article, I will talk about several points and answer several questions in order to help you get on your way to communicating with other species:
- Start With an Animal You Are Familiar With
- How to Communicate With Dogs
- How to Communicate With Cats
- Communicating With Smaller Animals, Avians, Reptiles, and More
- How to Help Animals in Need
- Do Animals Talk Back?
- Do You Have to Be Psychic to Communicate With Animals?
1. Start With an Animal You Are Familiar With
You'll want to practice on a family pet before taking a leap into anything else. A cat or dog that you are familiar with is the best choice to begin. Cats are a tad more difficult as they can tend to pick and choose who they wish to talk to (or listen to). A family dog can be easier as they are pack animals and will be more apt to tune into the leader of their pack—you.
2. How to Communicate With Dogs
- Start by taking your dog into a quiet room. (He or she already knows the tone of your voice, so you are one step ahead of the game.)
- Sit down on the floor next to them. Or, if they are allowed on the couch or bed (lucky dog), have them sit next to you.
- Pet them in their favorite spot until he or she is settled in, then start talking quietly to them in a loving tone.
- Find one short sentence or word and use it over and over. For example, "There you go, sweetie. There you go, sweetie. There you go, sweetie." (Or, if you are a guy and this is way too shishifoofoo for you, try "Okay, buddy. Okay, buddy.") We'll call this your key phrase.
- When you have gone over your key phrase about 10 times in a rhythmic way, close your eyes and be silent.
- Stop petting your dog and begin to form a picture in your mind of what you want them to know. (Animals like dogs and cats and some of the larger mammals can pick this up fairly quickly.)
- If you want to ask him or her to please put their head in your lap, form a picture of them doing just that in your mind along with a picture of you rubbing their favorite spot afterward.
- When the picture is formed and clear (you may have to practice this a bit if you've never done visualization before), then imagine the picture enveloped in a fluffy, white cloud.
- Float the cloud picture out of your forehead where your third eye is located and into the dog's head directly between their eyes. Once you have done this, speak the key phrase again one time and then float the cloud picture again into their head.
- Keep doing this until he or she either gets up and leaves or puts their head on your lap. Congratulations! You have spoken to your dog.
A Word About Neutered Dogs
If you are working with a particularly territorial non-neutered male, he just might get up and leave. If he does, follow him and do it all over again. Usually, the neutered males and females will want to happily succumb to the visualized and promised favorite rub, so they will lay their heads on your lap.
3. How to Communicate With Cats
Now, let's move on to cats. Leaving the cat-lover vs. dog-lover discussion completely out of this, I'm simply going to say that cats are a smidge more stubborn of an animal. If they feel like receiving your picture-talk, they will. If they don't, they won't and God help you if you are actually trying to tell them to do something they don't want to do!
Tread Lightly With Felines
In order to be successful, we need to tread lightly with the feline bunch. Dogs will listen and tune in simply for love. Cats, not so much. You need to give them a better incentive most of the time. If it is a particularly loving snuggle-cat, then by all means, put a favorite-spot rub picture into your visualization. If not, try showing them you will give them their favorite munchie treat.
- Start again with a key phrase using his or her favorite tone of voice. Use the tone you would use when putting down their full food dish. Try something like, "Honey, boy. Honey, boy," or again, for the non-shishifoofoo types, "Yo, dude. Yo, dude," while scratching his or her chin or ears or favorite spot.
- Then, after the fifth time (cats get bored quickly) with the key phrase and spot scratch, stop petting. Start forming the picture.
- With cats, a strong but quick picture typically comes across best. Don't ask them to do anything, however. Just send a love picture at first—a visualization of you feeding them. (It works well if you do this right before you are actually planning on feeding them.)
How My Cat Responds
My sweet Cheetah will usually snap his head up and head to his dish right away after I tell him it's coming. If you are saying to yourself right now, "Well, sure, if you do it right before his scheduled feeding time, of course he's gonna run to his dish," you are absolutely right. That is my point. He will get used to the fact that you are telling him good stuff is coming at the time it comes. Then later, you can float him a picture right out of the blue of something entirely different and he will understand you.
4. Communicating With Smaller Animals, Avians, Reptiles, and More
Let's talk turkey or parrot, or cockatiel, or budgie . . . you get the idea. Here are some general guidelines to follow:
- When you are talking to a smaller animal, you need to remember that the animal has a smaller brain. Their reception of pictures is apt to be slower and take longer.
- If the animal is a pet, again, they should be used to the sound of your voice. You really shouldn't be talking to an animal of this size right away if they are not a pet of yours.
- Lastly, remember patience. Once you have mastered the family pet chat, the others will follow.
Finding a Favorite Sound
So, if the iguana, lizard, bird, etc. that you are working with is your pet, great, get started! Do remember that these animals require a bit more finesse. My iguana loves me to sing "Desperado" to him in a quiet, sweet voice. Go figure! But if the animal doesn't really respond to a key phrase (and a lot of these kinds of species won't), find a sound.
You could use a quiet "ch, ch, ch" or a gentle "shh, shh, shh" sound. I've found that the "ch, ch, ch" works best for reptiles and cold-blooded animals for some reason, and the "shh, shh, shh" works best for our avian friends. Some lizards enjoy human touch and many don't; same with birds, tortoises, turtles, frogs, and so on. If the animal doesn't wish to be touched, just stick to the soft sound. Here's how to get started:
- Make the key sound in a rhythmic pattern at first.
- When you've gotten them accustomed to the sound, form a nondetailed, quick picture in your head. Visualize the picture clearly, but be sure it is easy and quick. (For example, when I want my cockatiel to fly onto my finger, I picture him on my finger and eating his munchie all in one quick, precise shot. When I want my iguana to climb onto my arm, I picture him on my arm with a strawberry in his mouth.)
- For these creatures, forget the fluffy cloud. Just aim the visualization at their head and fire!
- Remember: Practice makes perfect.
5. How to Help Animals in Need
Once you have worked on your pets for about six months continually, you should be able to branch out. If your pet gets injured or seems down, you can ask what hurts or why it is acting that way. Questions can be formed in the same way, you just need to send a picture of the animal exactly as it is and show each part of its body until the animal gives you a positive sign. It may lick you, it may squirm, it may purr, but if you are paying close attention, the animal can tell you exactly what the problem is.
This learned talent is extremely helpful if you come across an injured animal. Of course, for safety's sake, you need to keep a safe distance if you don't know the animal. However, even at a distance, you can communicate and calm a frightened and injured animal. You can send pictures of the animal feeling better. You can even send straight love. Love requires no visualization and no pictures. Simply sending a calming, gentle feeling of peace can do wonders.
6. Do Animals Talk Back?
Do animals talk back? Yes, they do and in many ways. Some of the larger mammals catch on quickly and send pictures right back at you. I've had a horse show me that she specifically wanted a green apple. Not a red one mind you, a green one! Of course, I immediately got one and gave it to her. Once they start communicating that well, you want to keep those lines open.
7. Do You Have to Be Psychic to Communicate With Animals?
I've had people ask me (I do animal healings also), do you have to be psychic to talk to animals? The answer is yes, you do. But no worries, because everyone is psychic to a degree. We all have it in us. The old myth might work here that we only use 10% of our brains at any given time. However, we can improve certain functions of said brains by simple repetition, practice, and study.
Everyone Has Psychic Potential
So it follows that flexing of the "psychic muscle" helps one to develop their psychic abilities. I have not yet met another human being who hasn't had a "feeling" or a "dream" or a "knowing." I have not yet met another human being who hasn't wondered about a coincidence. The gifts are there, we just need to use them. Talking to animals is one that will come in handy again and again. In closing, the more you practice, the more you will understand, and the more animals you will be able to communicate with.
