4 Ways to Understand Your Pet
Most of us would like to understand our companion animals better, but we’re not sure how to begin communicating with them. Here are the four basic methods used by animal communicators to receive information from animals. All humans have the ability to receive information in one or more of these ways. You can learn how, too!
Spend some quiet time with your pet, with the intention of learning something important about her or him. Close your eyes, if you like. You may want to stroke your pet gently and let your mind open and your body relax. Now, in your mind, ask your pet to tell you something she or she wants you to know. How does information come to you? Pay attention to the particular way you receive, so you can develop the mode that is most comfortable for you.
These are the four basic ways that humans receive deep information:
Clairvoyance (French for “clear seeing” or “clear vision“) is the ability to see images not normally perceived. Usually this refers to the projection of a picture, a slide show or even a short movie of an animal doing something, which plays within the darkened theater of the receiver‘s mind. Sometimes perspective shifts and the communicator views the scene as if through the animal‘s eyes.)
Clairaudience (“clear hearing”) is an inner hearing that can include sounds as well as words. These may be sounds an animal hears, though distinct words and sentences may also be heard on the inner level, rather like thoughts. Communicators say there is a qualitative difference between hearing your thoughts and hearing the thoughts of an animal.
Clairsentience (“clear feeling”) is the realm of kinesthetic feeling. This can include taste, smell, and other physical sensations. Communicators who work with sick animals may feel aches and pains in their body corresponding to the aches and pains of the animal. Feelings such as depression, lethargy, or apprehension may be perceived in this manner; emotions are also a form of clairsentience.
Intuition may be translated as inner knowing, a form of immediate insight. A good intuition is sometimes accompanied by a case of the willies, those tingly ghost fingers that lightly creep up over the top of your spine, making all the hairs on the back of your neck stand at attention, an obvious indication that something important is happening here. Intuition is a strong inner sensing or gut feeling.
