Many of our blocks and difficulties using our sixth sense, telepathy, and even intuition stem from our unconscious minds. This is the part (and scientists say it's 95-99% of our thinking) that runs on autopilot just beneath the surface and is often driven by all the fears, anxieties, pain, negative-speak, misinformation, and traumatic experiences we've had since we were little. If left alone, it runs without our input or control!
There are ways to clean up your unconscious mind, of course, but another strategy is to simply expand your conscious mind so you are much more in control of your life. Thinking consciously, it turns out, also lets you see and hear things you couldn't before. And that includes telepathing with animals, plants, elementals, and more.
Spiritual teacher and author, Michael Roads, teaches this quest to becoming more conscious and being able to communicate and commune with nature and suggests this exercise: Go out to the garden or a natural space, rope off 5 or 10 yards, sit in the middle with a notebook and write down everything you see in this area. Do this everyday and you will begin to notice things you didn't at first. You will realize that what looked like a patch of park or forest that seemed unchanging from day to day, was actually filled with newness and change — always evolving in every moment. When you begin to notice all of this newness in your space, all the unseen details, you're starting to think more consciously and in the moment. And that's where nature spirits, animals, and everyone but humans, live.
Hope and desire can only get you so far. Why not see what a dramatic change in thinking can do for your animal communication and interactions with our natural world?
Learning a language isn't haphazard. It is based on standardized vocabulary so that everyone speaking that language understands each other. Which is why animal communicator and teacher Jeannie Vos' suggestion of creating your own spirit language dictionary makes so much sense. Grab a notebook — paper, digital, or other — and start recording the images, symbols, and messages you are getting in your communications. Some of them, especially those that keep coming up, may be your guides' way of simplifying things for you.
For example, maybe you see a deer appear in your communication session. You look that up in any of the online spirit totem sites and find that a deer represents intuitiveness and sensitivity. You put that in your own dictionary and from then on, you know that seeing a deer in a session could mean you are right on with your intuition. The cool part is, that once you have built this personal dictionary, any animal or spirit you communicate with can then simply "download" your dictionary and use it to speak with you — using your personal terminology!
They say we are all born with the ability to communicate psychically or telepathically. While some have never lost that ability, many of us have forgotten long ago. For me, it apparently was so long ago, that I thought you simply had to have the "gift" to communicate this way. Regular people like me couldn't even dream of it. So I didn't. Until I came across Amelia Kinkade's book, The Language of Miracles. It restored my hope and faith that this was possible for me (and anyone), too.
That awareness is possibly the most important success factor in learning or remembering this intuitive language. Once you realize that you can do this, it opens up worlds. You begin looking and thinking about animals differently (and they begin looking at you differently). You start seeing and hearing about this topic everywhere. Your options expand. The possibilities grow. Your dream takes flight and the universe begins bringing you the building blocks to make it happen.
If you've already had your breakthrough moment of awareness, as I finally had, then you are well on your way. But if you are still thinking this communication stuff is something "others" can do, not you, then this is your wake-up call. Sure, it may take time and practice and patience and faith, but if this is something you want to do, know that you can. There you go — your awareness has begun! Now get out there and start noticing the resources and tools just waiting for you. Begin talking to your animals intelligently as if they can understand everything. And be patient with yourself. We all learn differently. We all go at different paces. What works for another may not work for you — so it doesn't mean you're a failure if others are getting results from something while you are not. Your path is unique, and guess what? You've already taken the first steps!
