Building your confidence as you receive telepathic messages from animals is one of the biggest challenges you may face as you leave your first workshop behind and venture off to chat with members of the animal kingdom.
"What is the best way to build my confidence?" you may ask.
Oddly enough, constantly seeking confirmation of what you receive from animals can become an obstacle to the successful development of your telepathic skills.
In our regular educational system, we've been programmed to go to the teacher or someone else outside ourselves to tell us when our "answer" is "right" or "wrong."
In real life, however, we learn best by experiencing, and then by allowing the "universe" to show us the accuracy of what we experienced.
My approach to teaching Animal Communication is to expand your consciousness and then allow whatever you experience to come through without evaluating it. When students do this, I find that their accuracy levels increase by leaps and bounds.
In contrast, when you constantly focus on narrowing your gaze to determine accuracy vs. inaccuracy, you slow your progress.
For this reason, my I Am Presence (True Self) has told me to STOP GIVING CONFIRMATION to my advanced students.
By "advanced" I mean those who:
1. have been studying Animal Communication for several years,
2. have taken several courses with me and/or other professionals,
3. are getting mostly accurate information, and
4. insist on focusing on their doubts about what they get.
Think about how you learn in REAL life.
1. You have a decision to make. You're not sure what to do, but at some point you have to make a choice.
2. As you inch or step forward into that choice, you begin to experience some of the consequences of the choice. In other words, the universe gives you feedback.
Of course, you're not separate from the Universe. Your "I Am Presence" uses the world around you to provide feedback.
Whatever you experience as a result of the step you took is your feedback.
You may find you were very accurate or were slightly off or were totally off the mark.
Whatever you discover is PERFECT because you now have the opportunity to make an adjustment the next time you move forward a step.
IF YOU CONSTANTLY EXPECT SOMEONE OUTSIDE YOURSELF to give you confirmation, you won't develop SELF-RELIANCE OR SELF-CONFIDENCE!
I also tell my students, "Assume you're correct until you find out otherwise."
This assumption tells the universe that you EXPECT to be correct so the universe knows what to manifest in your life.
If you believe you constantly need confirmation, that's like saying you need to be on crutches the rest of your life because you sprained your ankle a month ago. Your ankle is recovered, but just in case.
Clinging to the crutches won't strengthen your ankle or build your confidence.
If you keep assuming that all or most of your telepathic conversations are wrong, you're sending the wrong message.
Want to guess what the universe will manifest for you in this instance?
I'm a professional Animal Communicator with over 20 years of experience as a professional.
Am I always correct? Of course not.
When my communication is in error, do I beat myself up about it?
Instead, I ask for guidance to understand as much as I can about the error and then I let it go!
This is the natural way in which humans and animals learn anything.
And this is why we are told to "Practice, practice, practice."
Practice without confirmation.
OPEN your TELEPATHIC CHANNELS and USE THEM!
You can't build muscles without using them.
The same rule applies here.
Have fun with it, too. PLAY with it. That's how you'll build accuracy.
