Inquiring Minds in Animal Communication: What If I Don’t Hear Words?

Man yelling into a tin can

Daily I am greeted with questions from 2-legged clients and folks interested in animal communication. They are curious, they want to know how/why/when/if animal communication works.  There is so much curiosity about animal communication that I’ve decided to take these questions and turn them into blog posts! Because one thing is for sure…..if someone is asking that question, there are more folks out there who are wondering the same thing and looking for the answer!

So welcome to Inquiring Minds in Animal Communication!

Today’s question: What if I don’t hear words when I’m communicating with the animals? Am I doing it wrong?

Answer: Absolutely not! As my horse Shiloh says, the only wrong way to do animal communication is to not do it at all.

Intuitive information comes through different avenues for different people. It can come through our senses, our dreams, even through another person. We may hear the answer through thoughts or words in our mind, we may hear the answer through the words of another person, either in real life or virtually. We may see pictures, feel emotional or physical feelings, smell a scent, have a physical taste. Whatever way the information comes to you is how it comes to you at that time.

The information at first comes through your avenue of least resistance – through whatever way you are most open to receiving the information. If you like words, like to talk, the information may first come to you through words. If you’re an artist or a photographer, the information may come to you through pictures or colors. You get the idea.

As you become more experienced and open to receiving intuitive information, you may find it begins to come to you in different ways. Maybe now you’re dreaming the information, or have a sudden, instant knowing.

What’s important is that you are experiencing the information, regardless of the way it comes to you.

    Thank you for Today’s Question about the different ways we can receive messages from our furry babies. For me, it seems to be just knowing the answer. I’m sure this can change as I get better or different pets may sent the info differently. Either way, I’m excited to learn more.

    Thank you!

      You are very welcome and yay you! Keep a journal of how you receive the information – this will come in handy.

    this may seem stupid but after I have to help an animal cross over the rainbow bridge, for a while after I “see” that animal for a few days. I’ve not seen the last pet I had to let go of this past summer. This has left me sad & perplexed. The cat was special needs, could it be he doesn’t know yet that he is gone?

      That is NOT stupid Cynthia, it is very astute. There are various reasons why this could be happening. It could be just as you mentioned; other reasons could be you’re trying to hard, the timing is not right, the cat’s not ready to be seen, the cat’s coming to you in a way you’re not used to experiencing, you’re emotionally attached to the outcome, etc. Can you put the desire out of your mind? If so, give that a whirl and see what happens. Sometimes our own desire to connect can become the block that keeps us from connecting. Let me know how this goes for you! Harmony.
