It fascinates me how people ignore their intuition, their innate gut feeling nags at them and they make excuses for their discomfort. Growing up I was guilty of this as well. I found it confusing and frustrating. Over the years I have come to understand that how you feel about yourself and those around you has a literal physical and emotional effect.
I used to talk to animals using a baby voice that most people demonstrate with their fur babies. I have been reading animals without really paying attention to it. That sounds odd, doesn’t it? As I progressed in my skill set I recognized that I was feeling and hearing animals speak to me. I made jokes at first with my friends stating what I thought their dog was saying. Turns out, I was accurate. That was twenty years ago and from that moment on I challenged myself to speak to any animal that came across my path.
A while ago I was out for a walk on a beautiful summer day. In front of me was a gorgeous Doberman leashed to their pet parent and they were walking in front of me. I spoke to her in my thoughts. As I began to say hello and ask her how she was she turned to face me and stopped mid-walk crossing the street and refused to walk forward. She was so excited that I could hear her. She was reprimanded for stopping and I felt bad so I told her goodbye. She continued on her walk and she didn’t stop again. I started reading pictures of people’s fur babies and was accurate. I didn’t need to be near them to know and understand their lives or concerns. I used to be frightened of an angry dog. I would not put myself in harm's way if a dog was reacting to something and unable to control themselves.
I have been experiencing the most amazing things with the animals that I engage and speak to, using my thoughts and energy. I was at a group reading 5 months ago. The home had 2 very small dogs (8 to 10 lbs) that were barking so loudly and constantly that it is piercing and very uncomfortable. I walked into my clients home, they kept barking, I walked into the living room where my group was and the dogs kept barking intensely. Their pet parent kept telling them to be quiet, I did not say a word. I sat on the floor and I filled the room with a sense of comfort, support and love. I told them both that I was safe, that I was here for them and I would protect them. They immediately went quiet and curled up in their pet parents lap. They stopped. Halfway through the reading they overreacted again and starting barking. If I had time only for them, I could have discovered their reasons and what they needed to help them feel secure.
Reading animals is easy. They are not complicated. They are not complex. They remember their environments, their people and what has affected them positively or negatively. I recommend not speaking to your pet and just focusing on emanating an energy that you want them to feel; love. That action alone will change how they perceive and react to you. Give it a try...no one will know.
Sending all of you so much love!
