Though known by different names, and comprising many different “groups” or expressions of energy and consciousness, these beings have been understood to be an integral part of consciousness and life on Earth by human cultures and peoples for eons.
In this post, I want to share with you the one simple practice that is the foundation of everything that I teach in interspecies communication.
It’s a practice that we return to again and again in every class, every training program, and as a fundamental way of being in everyday life for people who want to regain their ability to communicate freely, openly, and clearly with animals and all beings.
Sometimes, blessings come all in a package, in a great, overwhelming cascade of joy! That’s what happened in my family last week.
Last Tuesday, I welcomed 10 1-day old bantam chicks into my animal family, including a “returnee”: Callie, who died in June, returned in this batch of chicks… and she requested to keep her same name. She’s the same breed as her previous body, and I recognized her right away. It’s such a joy to have her beautiful, sweet energy back in our physical world and in our family.
Then, two days later, I adopted precious, beautiful Marigold, a young calico cat. I’ve been waiting for her for a long time, and I’ll share more of her story as time goes on.
One of the things I often hear from people who are learning to reclaim their natural ability to communicate telepathically with animals is,
“I can’t quiet the chatter in my mind.”
It’s important to learn how to quiet our minds when opening to communicating with animals, so that we can learn the difference between our own human mental processes and thinking and direct, authentic communication from and with the animals.
In the occasional Hawk’s Eye posts, I share resources that I think will be interesting and helpful for my readers. In this post I’m delighted to feature a new book by Beverley Kane, MD:
I’ve just finished reading this beautiful book, and wanted to share it with you. It’s moving, easy to read, full of practical and interesting practices and information, written with a light touch and humor about the ways in which horses can teach us to be more resilient, responsive, embodied, and awake.
It’s an exciting time to be working in the field of Intuitive Interspecies Communication.
Fifteen years ago, when I first entered this field professionally, it was still considered “fringe”, a little “woo-woo”, and something that was interesting, but for the most part, definitely not worthy of serious scientific and academic study.
Coming from a background in both the arts and academia, I knew that bridging the divide between the academic, scientific, and intellectual worlds and the intuitive, telepathic, and spiritual worlds would not be easy.
What I did not know was how much of this gap would be bridged within my lifetime.
In my blog posts, free resources, and courses, I talk a lot about the things that we can do to support and develop our inborn, natural interspecies communication abilities.
In this post, I want to talk about some things that can interfere with our ability to hear and understand our other-than-human companions clearly.
So when I find films that are beautiful, gentle, heartful, and also promote a deep awareness and understanding of animals, the Earth, and spiritual awareness, I get excited. Here are few of my favorites…I may add to this list as time goes on!
In the many years that I have been teaching interspecies communication, I have often been asked,
“How can I improve my communication with other-than-human beings?”
One of the most important things that we can do as humans is to learn how to pay attention to tension in our own bodies, and release it.
One of the questions I’m often asked is, “Do animals understand time?” And, if so, how?
In my years as an animal communicator, I have learned that many animals do have a sense and an understanding of time, but it’s often different from our human understanding and awareness.
What a time this is. Like many of you who I’ve been hearing from, I am affected emotionally, physically, and energetically by all that is happening in my country and in our world.
Sometimes, it’s just plain exhausting. Overwhelming. Worrying. Frightening. Upsetting. Angering. Heartbreaking.
We know that we’re in a great time of transition, of birthing a new way of being, living, and loving in our world that is long overdue. And, it’s grueling. Let’s just be honest about that.
When I feel myself losing my center, my “hawk’s eye vision,” my grounding and anchoring, I know I need to spend some extended time outdoors, in places with strong, supportive, nourishing energy. One of my favorite places is at the Rio Grande River not far from my home, in a beautiful canyon filled with ancient sites, petroglyphs, and peace.
I have some wonderful news to share with you this week: I am so pleased to announce the 2020 graduates of the Professional Animal Communication Certification Program!
This is not an easy program, and I know that these people would be the first to tell you that. Each of them has invested a minimum of 2 years into this training. They have given great amounts of their time, energy, financial resources, hearts, and love to this work.
And, though we celebrate the beginning of a new year with new intentions, fresh energy, a sense of possibility, evolution, and transmutation, let’s be clear: we are in an immensely challenging time.
Reiki is an energetic and spiritual tool that I use every single day for myself, for my animal family, with my animal and human clients; and in my prayers and intentions for our world.
I often say that I think that Reiki should be something that belongs in everyone’s “life-kit”, along with first aid supplies, jumper cables, and for some of us, chocolate. 🙂
