First, don’t let your humanness get in the way. Animals have emotions and feelings, but they think differently than humans do. When you are communicating, never put your thoughts or emotions on them. Just let them tell you what they need to say to you.
Never get upset if they don’t want to talk. Humans are the only animals on Earth that can talk all day and never really say anything important. An animal will talk when they have something to say.
Don’t try too hard. Effort will always cause some form of resistance. Relax and just let the telepathic communication happen naturally.
Probably the most important thing to remember is to live in the present moment. If you are thinking about what you are going to do in five minutes, you are not paying attention to the animal. Animals live in the present moment and they expect you to do the same when you are communicating with them.
Another very important aspect of any communication is that everyone will get their messages differently than anyone else. Some people see pictures very clearly, others hear voices without pictures. Some get both and yet others get only a feeling or knowing. None of these are wrong. Don’t let someone tell you there is one way to get this communication. Work with it and figure out what works best for you.
You are going to misunderstand the animal at times. This is common and a learning process. You are learning a language that is more energy than sound and things can get misinterpreted. If this happens, don’t beat yourself up over it. Just learn from it and move on. No psychic, medium, animal communicator or anyone else for that matter is always right.
Always set your boundaries and ethics high. Never be talked into something that doesn’t feel right. Many people will test you and that’s okay. Remember there is no shame in walking away from any situation.
Telepathy is energy and it will take just a few seconds to get a message out and to the person or animal it’s going to. Never get upset if the animal or person doesn’t respond to you. They may not realize where the message is coming from. Give it a few minutes and then try again. Sometimes who you are trying to talk to just won’t get it and that’s okay. Try it on someone else.
You will learn that animals think differently from humans. They let their DNA run them and they know who they are. They don’t question why they are a cat and not a dog. They don’t worry about the future and only think about the past when a situation reminds them of it.
You will learn that predators and prey animals think differently from each other, but they both believe in and need love. You will learn that sending out love to all animals before you try to communicate with them will help you connect with their body, mind and soul.
You will learn to respect all animals and the way they look at life, death, family, community and why they do the things they do to survive.
You will open yourself up to people who will not believe you or think you have gone off your rocker. You will meet people that will not believe in what you are doing and will make fun of you. That’s okay because you will soon learn that there is nothing better in life that talking to the animals and feeling love from them.
In closing, I wish you all the best as you start into a world that will change your life. It will make you laugh, cry, learn more about yourself and animals and other people.
