Three Experiments in Talking to Your Animal
Experiment 1 – A New Way to Talk
Try this for a week: Talk out loud to your animal as if he or she can understand you just as a person would. Talk about any issues your are having and tell your animal how you would like them to behave. Keep a notebook and make a note of any changes your observe.
What I expect you’ll find is that your animal will be more attentive and interested in you, respond to what you say and what you ask for, and show you, through behavior, that he or she understands every word you say. It’s a great experiment and it doesn’t cost a thing to try it.
Experiment 2 – Change Your Beliefs
Try out these beliefs: animals are truly able to understand everything we say or think to them. They understand our spoken words just as well as another human would, and since, unlike us, no one taught them they weren’t intuitive, they can hear everything we think to them or about them. They also feel everything we feel and can see the images we form mentally. If you want to be successful at animal communication, you need to try out these beliefs, which are, admittedly, completely different than anything we’ve been taught about animals or about how life works.
Experiment 3 – Ask for a Message
Pick a regular time to talk, once a day or once a week. When you talk you can discuss anything from specific issues between you and your animal to whatever is going on in your life in general.
Speak from your heart, as if you are addressing another person who is your equal. Explain how you feel about an issue, discuss and negotiate, ask for your animal’s advice and cooperation. If the normal routine is going to change, or if you’re planning a trip, explain all these details so your animal won’t have to guess at or wonder what is happening. This can be especially helpful for animals that have separation anxiety.
Before you finish your talk, take a moment to close your eyes and ask your animal if he or she has a message for you. Whatever pops into your head write it down a d accept that it is from your animal. By not questioning the message you give your animal a chance to get through to you.
