Your animal friends want you to understand their experience. To feel the world from their point of view. To know what brings them joy, what makes them sad or fearful, and how grateful they are for you.
They sometimes even have powerful insights for you.
Things they know and feel through the purity of their love and the relative simplicity of their minds.
Every time I start a session, I can feel their enthusiasm and anticipation, especially as they decide among themselves who should share first, and what they want to say to their person.
They want to share so much with you. It is such a gift to animals to listen deeply to them.
Learning How to Be Still, Listen, and Trust
When I was first learning animal telepathy, this deep listening was so easy for me with other people’s animals. There was a beautiful flow that came and it was so tangible. It was like, “Oh, I know this way of being.”
But when connecting with my own animal friends, my inner skeptic got in the way.
It was hard to know what was real and what was my own mental projection, because I felt I already knew so much about them.
Then one evening after a busy day I said to myself, “Forget it, I am just going to quiet my mind and trust what I feel.”
And something beautiful happened.
I went into my office where my dog Sadie was resting on the floor by the sofa. I sat down next to her, with a yellow pad of paper and a pen. I felt my heart connected to hers and asked her to share. And I wrote everything down that came to me.
After writing 3/4 of a page, I looked up. Sadie had the sweetest, most grateful look in her eyes.
And THEN, the most amazing thing happened. One by one, my other animals came into the room, a dog and two cats, kind of forming a line, waiting their turn.
I couldn’t believe it.
From other parts of the house where they were hanging out that evening, they felt me opening up my heart to connect with Sadie and receive her feelings. And they wanted their turn too.
Each of them shared, and each of them was shining with appreciation afterward. The power of no-agenda, unconditional listening brought a softening to each of their eyes.
Clients often email me with the same surprising experiences after sessions and courses
My client and friend Carrie Mae shared after a recent communication with her dog Tulip: “After the session, she came into the room and sat right next to me and just stared up at me with the most loving eyes.”
A client named Blair wrote of her horse Alex: “I went to the barn today and he was so affectionate it was beautiful. I feel like our relationship is even better since you communicated with him.”
And a client Rosine shared this about her rescue dog Sparky, and her whole animal family: “Thank you! And you are totally wonderful! Sparky seems relieved today, and the overall energy around here is so sweet. They all seem to be saying, ‘Now you understand.’ So Rick and I have spent extra time today grounding in what came through. Everyone has gotten lots of communication and attention.”
We all long to feel understood, deeply seen, and unconditionally listened to by the beings in our lives we adore.
I hope to share this gift of listening with you and your animal friends very soon.
With love and joy,
