SPIRITUAL SEEKERS CIRCLE
February 7, 2011
I am just going to update you a bit. The class this past Wednesday on animal communication was off to a good start as we talked about energy and a type of telep...athy that we all have but for many it is conditioned right out
of us. We call it many things, a hunch, a feeling, a vision, a dream, intuition but we shy away from calling it psychic energy and ability. That is what it is pure and simple. I am going to send the below information to help you along the path. If you develop your telepathic ability to a high degree it will help you in all aspects of your life and in every relationship human and non-human. Next class is Wednesday, February 16th at 7 pm.
RESTORING THE LOST ABILITY
Although the ability to communicate telepathically usually is lost in childhood in our culture, where there is love for animals and willingness to re-learn, that ability can be revived. The rewards are mutual expansion and delight for human and non-human.
The first thing you can do to start on the road to direct communication with animals is to discard any condescending attitude that animals are lower, less evolved, or less intelligent beings. This kind of attitude blocks true communication with animals, just as it does with humans. Regard animals with respect, openness and as potential teachers, and this alone will enable you to observe them with a fresh light and open up a wellspring of information from them about who and how they are.
Another barrier that needs to be surmounted is invalidating your own potential to receive telepathic communication from animals. If you love animals, you already "hear" what they say to some degree, even if you are not aware that you are doing it. Commonly, when I explain what animals are communicating, people exclaim, "I thought he was trying to say that" or "I kind of picked that up." Lack of recognizing the reality of that perception as it occurs causes people to miss continuing the conversation and developing their understanding and ability. Your animal friends can become frustrated at your lack of understanding their thoughts, emotions, and intentions when they directly communicate them to you, and so they have to resort to methods that you do understand, such as tearing up the furniture or peeing on the carpet.
If you have ever had the experience of knowing what a person is thinking, perhaps even saying aloud the same thought simultaneously, or really getting someone's mental vision or feelings, you'll get the idea of how you can exchange telepathic communication with animals. If you love animals, you already tune in to their feelings and thoughts to some degree, even if you are not aware that you are doing it. Commonly, when I explain what animals are communicating, people exclaim, "I thought he was trying to say that," or "I kind of picked that up." Lack of recognizing the reality of that perception as it happens causes people to miss out on continuing the conversation and developing their understanding and telepathic ability.
You'll be amazed at what can happen if you accept the feeling, thought, emotion, picture, or impression that you get when you are quietly attentive to an animal and continue your communication from there.
STEP ONE – OBSERVING QUIETLY
To receive communication from animals, you need to calm your own thoughts, distractions, judgments, or preconceived notions, so that they do not interfere. Then you can be quietly receptive to what animals wish to relay.
Find a time when you and an animal friend can be together in a peaceful environment. Sit comfortably within a few feet or whatever distance is agreeable to the animal. Don't try to get his/her attention or do anything. Just look at the animal quietly. Let distractions, thoughts, or mental pictures of other things melt away, and focus softly on the animal. Continue to do this until you feel very relaxed and calm with a relatively clear mind. Observe all the unique physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual qualities of your animal friend that you can. Let yourself be open to new perceptions.
After doing this awhile, you probably will experience heightened awareness or clearer perceptions about yourself and animals. It may be a relief to calm down and let busy thoughts fade away.
You may at first, or even with repeated practice, only experience your own mental activity. You may find you cannot calm the million thoughts and images that crowd your mind. You just don't get any fresh observations or perceptions about the animal. You may get fixated on the animal's body and cannot get beyond this to be aware of their whole being and your telepathic connection with them. You may not yet perceive their spiritual essence, their thoughts, feelings, or concept of who they are on a deeper level.
Be patient. Increased awareness and telepathic reception take time to cultivate. For many people, years of blocks have accumulated. Continued practice helps to peel away the layers.
As you practice this frequently, you may find your own judgments or accumulated preconceptions about animals coming to view. Be willing to let them go, and open up to fresh observation based on a clear connection to the animal present with you. You will then find that your receptivity to animals' thoughts, feelings, concepts, images, and inner world increases. You may even start getting communication impressions from your animal friends.
Remember that this is the first and most basic step that you need to master to facilitate further communication. Otherwise, your own mental projections can get in the way of receiving from the animal. This also makes it safe for animals (including humans) to open up to you and feel that you are listening and can understand. Practice as often as you can, for minutes or hours with animals, humans, trees, rocks, or with whomever you wish to have a deeper understanding and connection.
Getting in touch with animals heart-to-heart and mind-to-mind is a path to wholeness. It nurtures deep places in the soul that people of our culture long to feel. It's time for us to recover this vast reservoir of healing power, wisdom, and joy. The animals are waiting, curious and hopeful, for us to awaken, listen, and learn in loving cooperation on the Earth.
