Talk to the animals

 
 

Dear Houndsie,

Did you ever want to be like Dr. Dolittle and talk to the animals?  Do you ever wonder what your animals are thinking - I mean REAAAALLY thinking.  Are they happy, sad, content, want more chicken?    

This is hard for me to admit because I don't want people to think I'm weird.  But you know what - WHO THE HELL CARES!  I'm weird and geeky and I'm done caring what everyone else thinks!  I LOVE WOO WOO!   My husband's grandfather's cousin is Edgar Cayce - I've read all his books and am faaaaascinated {he's a very well known prophet/healer/intuitive}.  Edgar was a devout Christian who didn't believe in woo woo, but had a gift for healing people - he would fall into a trance and knew medical terms, even though he grew up on a Kentucky farm and didn't attend college - after the trance, he could tell someone what to do to be healed just by knowing their name, location, and ailment}.  Now that's incredible!  In my mind, I like to think that somehow I have a special connection to him since my husband has the bloodline!

Last Sunday I attended an Animal Communication Class.  I've had animal communication sessions with Hope Black, the teacher, and adore her sessions, which bring peace and content to my heart.  Wouldn't it be fantastic to be able to communicate with my dogs like Hope can?  So I'm in the class with eleven other people who have never 'communicated' with animals before in that sense of the word.  And somehow by the end of class, every single person was able to 'woo woo communicate' with animals!  We did this simply by picking up random pictures of animals (living or passed on), and connected with their energy.   
 

At one point I selected a photo of a beautiful white cat.  I pictured her with two other cats... I knew that she loved them, but was distant with them, and then the word 'rainbow' came into my head.  Sure enough, the cat's mom said that she had lost two siblings when she was young (they had gone over the rainbow bridge).   WHAT!?  I can communicate with animals?  Apparently anyone can.  ONE, you have to be open to the possibility.  And TWO and the biggest thing of all, is that you have to LISTEN.  Whatever comes to mind first in the first few seconds is the answer - if you wait and let your own mind think about it, you'll add your own story and it won't be true... hmm, sounds like my Meisner acting training - living truthfully in the moment. 

It's weird, strange, and exciting all at the same time.  I still don't trust that I can talk to the animals, but heck yes, I'm gonna keep trying! 

 

Have I sparked a little curiosity?  Contact Hope here, she'd be happy to answer your burning Dr. Dolittle questions:  Making the Connection.  

 
love dog. love art. live now.

Hi Kathleen
Definitely not weird.
Animal whispering is widespread & some have a real gift at understanding & communicating with the animal.
I often wonder what my Labrador Gemma-Rose is thinking. Sometimes she looks sad. I am going to try listening & not putting my story on her. Just listening & being together.

Deb, you’re weird too! lol, just kidding – I love what you’re doing, thanks for sharing the class and love your title… award winning mentor. What a fantastic class, wish I could be there. In my mind the majority of people I know think this topic is ‘out’ there, but it’s nice to know that there are lots of people who think of this is normal <3 More and more I’m doing what I believe in and sharing this, including how to really make a difference for the animals.

Thank you, you’re inspiring. xo Kathleen

Hi Sharon,

Yay, not weird! I can relate to what you feel with Gemma-Rose – I feel that my girl Asha looks sad at times and I need to not put my story on her as well. I recently discovered that this isn’t the first time that she’s been with me as one of my animals – soooo interesting.

Kathleen, congratulations on embracing your intuitive side! I like to say that I am woo woo in the mainstream world. You will not only find lots of us, you will love the ones you serve when you connect with their pets!! Keep doing what your doing and I am sure Edgar Cayce is smiling on you ;)

I don’t think this is weird at all. I have a little story for YOU. My husband’s dad passed away a couple weeks ago two weeks after my own dad passed. His dad died at about 4:00 am. We all gathered together in his room in the assisted living facility to sit with him until the sun came up. Buddy, the house dog (Golden Retriever), made his way up two flights of stairs and around two corners and came into the room to sit with us, too. I have never seen that dog move from his spot in the front lobby let alone make it up the stairs. Somehow he knew he was needed. I still get chills when I think of that morning. I have been watching that dog closely since John’s dad passed. He hasn’t moved from his spot in the lobby.

Such a sweet and touching article Kathleen! Woo woo is wow wow! Using your intuition is just crazy good and something we should all practice and tune in to a lot more!

It is amazing what comes when we tap into our intuition! My granddaughter has a keen knack for communicating with animals. It is always amazing to watch her with them interacting, they get each other. Her cat even intuitively knows when she is ready for bed and runs and hops into her bed before she heads there herself.

Very interesting about your granddaughter Cathy. I’ve often heard that kids are much more open to their ‘spirit/intuition’.

Ohh Kathleen, lovely post. Our animals are little humans with fur, they communicate and know when things aren’t right or if someone is ill. XO

What the heck isn’t woo woo, is what I want to know. We are all amazing with different skills and thank the Goddess for that, is all I can say!!!!!

I Love that you are hearing this calling. The animals will be so delighted and you will help many 2 and 4 legged ones.

As a side note, I was just thinking about my cat Reilly and if I had a story I could tell and thought, hmmm, I don’t ‘really’ talk to her and then she appeared at my feet, rubbed them, AS I WAS WRITING THIS… and all I could do was smile. I picked her up, kissed her little face all over while she purred. Okay…. I get it… we are so silly to doubt ourselves… !!!! If we listen, they WILL tell us :)

Great post Kathleen >.. keep us posted :) . . .

You are so right Dana, they are ‘open’ to what’s out there for sure! xo

Elizabeth, I get the impression that the majority of people are afraid of woo woo…. maybe that’s changing. Give Reilly a hug from me!
