Explore the World of Animal Communication

I didn't learn about animal communication until after Maggie, my dog, passed on. Talking with an animal communicator after she died opened doors for me into yet another aspect of the spiritual world between dogs (animals) and their humans -- a world that was previously unknown to me.

The Source of today's post comes from: Animal Talk, the website of Penelope Smith, animal communicator.

People often wonder how one communicates with animals, and whether it is a psychic ability.

Penelope Smith has been communicating with animals telepathically throughout her life. She has also helped launch the careers of numerous professional animal communicators. For over thirty years, she has been the founding pioneer for the field whose name she originated, interspecies telepathic communication. Her methods foster people's ability to understand and communicate with animals on many levels - physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Here is Penelope Smith's response to how she communicates with animals, which helps me better understand the questions I raised in my book about how Maggie and I communicated:

"Psychic comes from the Greek word "psyche," meaning soul or spirit. Yes, I communicate to the individual animal, who is a spiritual being with a particular type of animal body, just as humans are spiritual beings with human animal bodies. This awareness of animals as intelligent beings with a spiritual essence is central to the ease in which animals communicate with me and increases their willingness to understand and change in positive directions. With or without physical contact, I communicate with animals telepathically, with feelings, intentions, thoughts, concepts or mental pictures. They communicate back to me in the same ways, and I translate their thoughts into words for human understanding. Animals can also understand the meaning of words when humans clearly transmit what they wish to communicate. Animals pick up the intentions, images, and feelings behind what people verbalize. Some animals even relay words mentally, especially those animals who are very close to people and so have learned the meaning of words or who have had past life experience in human form."

Smith discovered in 1971 that animals could be relieved of emotional traumas and other problems through the same counseling techniques that helped humans. Penelope feels that the sacred connection we make through telepathic communication with other species is essential for human wholeness. She believes as I do that everyone is born with the power to communicate with other species, and that, although it is long lost for most people, it can be regained for the benefit of all beings on Earth.

Ms. Smith is often asked what animals say to her:

"They give their viewpoint on what is happening with them and what they have wanted to communicate to their people. Most animals are willing to answer any question about what they think and want, although they don't have the same priorities as people do. They have varying experience and interests due to their body types and their particular environments. They have different sense organs and functions, and therefore cannot be expected to talk about human activities that are not applicable to them, like golf or the stock market. When asked the right questions, they usually can recall their early experiences and even past lives. As with humans, their experience often has relevance to current behavior. Non-humans are individuals and communicate in different ways according to their awareness, intelligence, ability, and experience, as do humans."

Besides asking animals if they have any pain or where it hurts, Ms. Smith can perceive inside their bodies for areas of distress or blocked energy and help locate what needs veterinary attention. Telepathic communication functions successfully both in person and at a distance. She can focus on and contact animals telepathically through their connection with their people along with a physical description of them.

How does she know she is getting across to animals and receiving their communication?

"While I know that we understand each other, it is also evident to others because of the response of the animals or the results. Behavior problems often disappear, animals visibly become brighter, more active, relaxed, or cooperative. Illnesses lessen or the animal improves dramatically or gradually after a consultation."

What is Penelope Smith's purpose in communicating with animals?

"To help all species co-exist in greater understanding, co-operation, and happiness. I love helping people and animals appreciate and learn from each other more, and I hope that this in turn will increase the health and harmony of all life on the planet."

Penelope was able to use her ability to communicate with animals more effectively when she became a counselor for humans. She discovered that the techniques that worked with people to help them sort out problems and relieve emotional traumas usually worked more rapidly with animals. As she helped her own animal companions, and then those of friends and acquaintances, the word spread.

Penelope Smith believes that other people can be taught to increase their abilities to be receptive and communicate with other species, if they love animals. Some people are more sensitive and open than others and learn faster. Willingness to listen and realize that animals are fellow spiritual beings from whom you can learn a great deal is a major factor in opening up receptivity.

Penelope has worked successfully with thousands of animals using mental, spiritual, and physical communication techniques. She has books, tapes, and courses that aid in increasing telepathic communication ability.
