Self-doubt is not something to worry about. Self-doubt is an expression of your sincerity.
You do not wish to fool yourself, misrepresent an animal, or fool anyone else. I often tell my clients that self-doubt is something to celebrate. Our willingness to doubt ensures that we ask questions, remain humble, and stay open to new information.
Another time, when I had self-doubt, an owl stopped me right in front of my drive way. Trusting I would stop, she filled my heart with awe and love. She affirmed the truth of our connectedness.
Years back when my encounters with whales and dolphins had been long-distance and telepathic, I called out to the sea upon my arrival in Molokai. “If I am really talking to you whales let me know.” Immediately a whale rose into the air and back into the water. A tail was waved over and over for many minutes following.
Ask the animals to affirm what you think you are receiving from them. If you are not really hearing, they will find ways to tell you. People have reported a turn of the head, a turn of the body, or a nose in the air when not fully receiving the message of an animal.
Knowing when you are off is a great blessing. It doesn’t invalidate your worth, your work, or your gifts. It simply causes you to become even clearer in your perceptions.
Ask the animals to help you erase doubts by affirming your understanding and redirecting any misperceptions. This will help you to gain faith, trust, and ability to communicate.
Have some wisdom to share, experience to pass along,
guidance to offer tomorrow's animal communicators?
