It’s not uncommon to feel that you are not getting any information, which can make you feel anxious and cause a block. One of the ways that I have learned to overcome this is to pick another tool from my belt.
Different animals, like people, have different personalities. The way in which you communicate with one animal, doesn’t necessarily mean that another will respond to the same technique.
We all communicate differently and we all have our own styles. However, we also have a few different techniques that we can change to, if the need arises.
I have spoken to some animals and then the next day, another would only impress emotions on me. Just because it’s different, doesn’t mean that it’s wrong.
I like to imagine that we all have a "communicator’s tool belt” and when one way isn’t working, you put that tool down and use another.
As an example, if you have an animal’s spirit in front of you but you just aren’t getting the information, try writing down the person’s questions and requests on a piece of paper. Often you will find that the answers will come to you as you are writing. If that doesn’t work for you for a particular animal, let them know that you need them to show you in images what they mean and so on. Do whatever works for you. There is no right or wrong way.
In your tool belt, you might meditate prior to a communication session. On the other hand, you may not meditate prior to a communication. Personally, I am not a fan of meditating. Shocking, right?! But the traditional mediation style is just not for me. I do, however, clear my energy daily, but I would personally prefer to do a form of active mediation like jogging or being in nature, but certainly not the traditional meditation style. And that’s okay! Because that’s my style, and you may have a style that is completely different and that’s what you have in your tool belt.
Also, try different techniques and see which ones work for you, and which ones will fit into your tool belt. I tried a new technique the other day, and completely froze and got absolutely nothing! You know what? That’s okay! Because now I know that particular technique doesn’t work for me.
We all have different tool belts, but we are also in the same choir. Some of us hit different notes, but we are all working towards the same goal: Being a voice for the animals.
I personally feel that the people who are drawn to you to be their communicator, are the right people to work with. Trust in your process and the people who are drawn to work with you.
Always remember, the information that you bring through is invaluable to an animal's person.
Trust yourself and in your ability
Thank you for taking steps to communicate and build the bonds between animals and humans.
Over the years, I have had to remind myself that what comes through in a communication is from the animal’s perspective. When you do more and more communications, you may come across some people, with good intentions, who feel you haven’t quite picked up on their animal's situation correctly. Let me give you an example using my dog.
I have an American Staffy that we rescued some years ago. When he first arrived, he decided that his job was security. He felt like he was doing an amazing job and if anything came near the house or the fence or anywhere near us, he would spring into action and he felt that he needed praise for all of his hard work. From our perspective, he was NOT security, he was becoming more trouble than we anticipated and quite frankly, we found him being a bully to our other dogs. Not only did he need good, positive, consistent training, we needed to communicate with him and negotiate the terms of his job. While he felt that he should be somewhat like a policeman with a gun, we felt that he should be more security guard at a gathering, with no guns, so to speak. In this situation, human and animal had very different perspectives on the same situation. As the animal communicator, it’s our role to explain both sides of a situation to the other party. I have found that sometimes just by making the animal feel ‘heard’, they will change their behaviour.
Another example of perspective
I could say to someone ‘that person is quite tall’ because to me, they are. However, to someone taller than I am, the person could just be normal height.
These are a few examples how perspective on a situation can be completely different. Neither perspective is wrong.
I want to encourage you that what you get, you get from the animal, from their perspective. It doesn’t mean that what you get is wrong, it’s just from a different perspective. I always tell clients that what I receive is ‘the animal’s message’ and it’s the way that they see the situation.
As you do more communications, you will become more comfortable in knowing that even if a client might not understand the message you bring across at first, once you explain that it’s from the animal’s perspective, they will appreciate the information which will ultimately bring the human and animal into a more bonded relationship.
The information that you bring through is invaluable to an animal's person.
Trust yourself and in your ability.
