To Believe Or Not In Animal Communication
To Be Published In Florida Equestrian Magazine May 2012
I always believed in communication between species in the animal kingdom. I have seen horses communicate with cows, dogs, and even humans! We, as humans, are animals, although we have many more levels of defense than most animals. it may seem unreal to some that humans can communicate telepathically, but we do it every day. Each moment we emote emotions and thoughts, just like our pets. In order to live and work in our world, most people have tuned out the ability to pick up on subtle frequencies and energies that surround them. It would be overwhelming to anyone to be tuned in every moment, but we all have the ability of intuition. We may not all be opera singers, but we can all sing!
Our animals talk with us constantly. Owners should always trust their gut instinct regarding a situation...it is almost always correct! How many times has your horse expressed an opinion, and it was ignored or not even heard. Of course, just like small children, each whim of an animal cannot be fulfilled. I know my horses would like unlimited grain, cookies, and carrots, but that would cause many health problems that they don't understand. We make treats a special occasion for my horses, but they always ask for them!
The important part of "listening" comes when an animal expresses pain or fear, which may be interpreted as a "bad attitude" or "poor training". Many times our animals are uncomfortable, and we just expect them to keep going because that is their job. I agree with this to an extent, but at some point the animal will make it known to its owner or trainer that it is time for a change. I used to joke with other trainers that the horse has "retired" himself from lead changes or jumping. Intuitive owner and trainers can see that the horse is uncomfortable or just needs a new job, and they allow that change to come naturally; however, there are others that would try to train though the problem which usually results in poor to disastrous results.
As an animal communicator, I often work with veterinarians and trainers to find the root of the problem. Through telepathic communication, I can often get more pieces to the puzzle that adds up to the whole picture. Let me just say that I am not a veterinarian, nor do I have all the answers, but I work closely with the team (vet, trainer, owner) to create a bigger picture. Whether one believes in animal communication or not, intuition is real. Always follow your instinct, and you will usually find the right answer!
