Here are some great questions from one of my students in Japan.
Animals don’t have any problem being talked with by many people at once? It won’t be a burden on them?
In my experience I have not heard any negative comments with regard to having numerous people talking with an animal at once. I have on many occasions heard animals say they LOVED the experience. Some animals have even used tactics to keep us talking with us. The way they have explained this to me and my students is that it is very rare for them to have the opportunity to really be heard by a human being. Animals fortunate enough to have the opportunity to have two way conversations with us do not want the conversations to end. It may be the only opportunity they will ever have in their life to be heard and understood in the way it is possible through a two-way dialog with them. My experience is that they jump at the chance to talk, and especially LOVE it when they can share with many humans.
It seems some animals don’t always tell the truth of what they think and feel as if they have 2 faces, public & private.
How am I supposed to know if they are telling me their feelings?
It is true that sometimes animals will avoid responding to a question, or they may give a response that we initially may not understand. Sometimes animals will purposely make things confusing to make it so we talk with them for lengthy periods of time, or we are sure to come back and talk with them again. Some animals also have a sense of humor and like to play games with us, especially if we are being serious with our communication, or we are being hard on ourselves.
Let me give you an example of a case where an animal wasn’t truthful initially. I was asked to talk with six cats living in a home. One of the cats was peeing outside the litter box. The person who had the cats thought she knew who it was but was not entirely sure. When I questioned the cats one after another each one said: “No, it wasn’t me”. Obviously someone in the home was peeing outside the litter box so I simply proceeded to ask more questions of each of the cats to know more about how each of them were getting along, how they were feeling, what they would like to share with their person, etc. etc. They LOVED having the opportunity to share. As I was talking with one of them she shared that she was the one who was going outside the litter box and why she was doing it. If she had shared right away she would have been the only one to have the opportunity to talk. In the end all of the cats were very satisfied with their experience and this cat who was going outside the box was able to share why and what her woman could do to assist in changing that.
The main thing which is important when talking with the animals is to keep talking with them and engaging with them similar to how we might engage with a fellow human. Be creative in thinking of things to ask. Set aside your agenda and simply enjoy engaging with them. Generally you will have clarity and understanding, if not simply ask more questions. The animals love to engage with us, it is us humans who think it isn’t fun or think we are bothering them. The animals want to have this opportunity to talk, so turn it over to them and just know as you are dialoging with them that you are giving them a beautiful gift which is rare on the planet at this time.
There is never a need to leave a conversation with an animal feeling confused or unsure. All that is required to have clarity on ANY question is to simply ask more questions.
Some Japanese Animal Communication School say it’s possible to communicate with animals without any use of telepathy.
Animal communication on it’s own is often thought of as being with an animal in-person and talking out loud with them. For instance, asking or telling a dog to “sit”. Another way of looking at animal communication is from the standpoint of animals talking with animals. For instance observing them communicating with one another. There are even keys to expressions and movement animals make. But, each individual is unique and so this has limited value. It would be like having a key to what we mean by the things we say or our expressions. The idea of that would not be so positive for us because we really want to be heard and understood each time we communicate as opposed to someone looking at a key to determine what we are saying.
I actually don’t think of the word telepathic when I am communicating, but it is telepathic because it transcends miles and it happens without the need to see the animal in person or to see a photo. The way I think of telepathic communication is like talking with a fellow human by telephone. I do not see the person. I often have not ever met the person before by telephone or in person. They may be on the other side of the planet, or perhaps even out in space, or on an airplane but I can talk with them and they can talk with me. Many things are instantly known about the person even though it may be my first time talking with this person. For instance I may know without asking that this person is totally committed to the well-being of animals on the planet. It is right there in my awareness like a big sign printed across their face. The person I am talking with knows many things about me as well. As human beings we don’t often take into consideration the magnitude of information we automatically (telepathically) perceive and know about a person simply by being in communication with him or her. There is telepathic communication going on as we dialog back and forth with fellow humans on a daily basis.
Many animal communication teachers go into great depth of sending and receiving telepathic messages. In my experience in the past 21 years telepathy just happens there is no sending or receiving, no messages, and no work to be done. There is no preparation to doing it (for instance, no meditation or quieting the mind), instead we just do it. It is a straight forward two-way dialog talking back and forth with the animal, just like how we talk back and forth in a two-way dialog with a fellow human.
How is Telepathic Animal Communication different from Animal communication that doesn’t involve Telepathy?
I believe all communication involves telepathy we just are not aware of it. When we think about it as we communicate with a fellow human being or with our dog there is telepathy involved. Telepathy is communication which happens automatically. That is why communicating telepathically with animals is effortless. No meditation or preparation is required, one may simply say hello and start talking. Even when we are speaking out loud with one of our animals telepathy is happening. They are talking with us and we are hearing them and taking action (we just don’t realize we are already, automatically listening to the communication and wishes of the animal). Sometimes we don’t know why we are doing something for them but we just do it. Meanwhile they asked us to do something for them, we just don’t realize there was communication going on there. My response to the question is that all communication happens on many levels whether it be with human to human communication, human to animal, or animal to animal. From my experience telepathy is naturally involved in all of these types of communication. Because it is effortless, it just is there happening, we don’t always realize it because as human beings we are accustomed to having to work at everything. Telepathic communication is a natural way of communicating which all humans engage in without being aware of it.
Human physical body’s voice can sometimes be different from their thoughts and feelings.
Does this stand true for animals too?
It is true, that for instance a cat may speak powerfully and knowingly and amaze the human he is talking with about his strength. The animal could be thought of as vital and healthy based on their way of being while communicating. But then as far as the physical body goes the animal could be quite frail. This is one reason I am grateful to have not ever used photos to talk with animals. For one thing it is entirely unnecessary but also if we were to see a frail cat for example in a photo a new student may immediately jump to a conclusion about the cat without giving the animal the opportunity to share what she wants for herself. We may jump to a human belief or idea about what is best for a frail cat, (even putting him or her to sleep) forgetting that each cat is unique and should have the opportunity to express his or her truth and wishes.
I find animals to be authentic in their sharing. Sometimes they may be stoic about physical issues (like people are too). They are strong in their character and dedicated to their people in most cases. With a little dialoging back and forth it is easy to understand who the animal is and how they are doing all at the same time.
If there are such differences animals, would taking your college lessons be helpful for recognizing such differences?
The way the college works is that during each of the class sessions throughout the entire year we talk with numerous animals. There is nothing like actually talking with one animal after another which develops skills and confidence in having conversations. Students are like interns in a way because they experience from doing. And, the experience comes from real live cases just like how I have been communicating with animals and their people for the past 21 years. Cases have come to me through clients worldwide and I have taken them one after another day after day. This has been what has developed me as a pioneer in the field of animal communication. We begin to have animals to talk with in the very first class session and on every class thereafter, and in between classes there are animals to talk with.
The animals we talk with are those who live with you and your classmates, animals from my clients, your friends and family members animals, animals from shelters and rescues and animals in the wild, wild and domesticated animals from around the world, species of animals in danger of extinction, animals from students past, ones who have passed on, animals at veterinary clinics, etc. etc.
This includes, animals who are lost, animals who are ill, animals who have behavior issues, animals who are homeless, animals who are treatened by extinction or other situations, animals who are stolen, etc etc.
Throughout the year students are encouraged to make requests of animals for us to talk with in class.
There is no program like this on the planet. Any other training program in animal communication is scripted with specific animals to talk with all planned in advance. In this program we talk with whatever animals may benefit. For instance on a call last week one of the students asked us to talk with her dog who was throwing up. We talked with the dog and were able to help bring ease to the dog and his person. All students participated and had the satisfaction of making a difference including experiencing the transformation which occurred for dog and person as they communicated.
Could talking to passed away animals be harmful to us humans?
In talking with thousands of passed animals for 21 years professionally I have had the most healing, touching and beautifully transformative experiences. According to the animals they never die, they only shed an old or ill costume (physical form). They are profoundlly loving whether in a physical form or not. I do not believe talking with them is in any way harmful to us humans. Instead it is profoundly healing.
Do some animals understand if they have pain or discomforts in their specific physical organs or they only understand that they have such symptoms.
Animals are highly aware of themselves, more so I find than humans. For instance, I may ask a fellow human what is causing their ill feeling and they often will say: “I don’t know”. With the animals they usually know. But, they don’t look at wellness or illness in the way we do. They do not have terms like “cancer” and they do not have beliefs like we humans have either. For instance, an animal may share exactly how he or she is feeling which may sound very much like a particular illness. They may even say, “No” if we ask if they “have” cancer because they do not think of “having” something like we think of “having” something. When we humans hear terms like cancer for instance a whole set of beliefs, fears, and concerns immediately come to mind. Animals tend to be full of possibility and also they do not generally fear death so they are not desperately avoiding things (like cancer) like we humans do. Animals live very present in the moment. In looking at these topics it is important to keep in mind that animals have an entirely different point of view than we humans. If we assume we know what their point of view is based on our point of view we will not hear what they are saying. In this case we only hear ourselves. The animals point of view I find to be very liberating, refreshing and it really make sense. I have adopted their point of view over the years but I am still learning from them because every conversation is a new experience which I feel so fortunate to have. To answer your question they can speak of their individual organs, even the cells. They often share in great detail about their physical status and also very specific about foods which they are sensitive to, individual supplements and medicines. I often ask animals which medicines they prefer and also dosage as well in collaboration with veterinarians. Sometimes there are a few antibiotics which could be used for instance. A dog, or cat or other animal can easily share which they prefer. We may wonder how they know these things but they just do. You can do this too, it just takes some experience communicating with one animal after another.
Recently in Japan, rescued animals, homeless animals are encouraged to be neuted. Is this what those animals want for themselves as well?
Sometimes animals will be in agreement with being neutered and some will be opposed to it. I have found that most of the animals I have talked with knew that a part of living with humans included being neutered and they were in acceptance of it for the most part. Occasionally I will talk with an animal who is adamantly opposed to this. They love to be asked and will sometime say “No” first just to let you know they aren’t excited about the idea but then will say yes because they know it is considered a normal practice for animals living with humans. Some animals who are homeless want to be neutered as it makes an easier life for them out there, others not. Some animals desire living with humans, others prefer to have their freedom at any cost.
Thank you for these great questions! Please let me know if you have questions on what I shared or other questions.
With gratitude & love,
