Animal communication is a telepathic conversation with an animal through a skilled facilitator. The facilitator is a person who receives images, emotions, words, colors, and/or sensations telepathically from the animal, expresses them in English to the human companion, and transmits what the human wants to say back to the animal in a way the animal understands. The facilitator promotes a clear conversation between the animal and human, and helps both parties understand the other’s point of view.
For many, this is not work; it is love made visible. It is a privilege to facilitate conversation between [humans and] animals. I consider this to be sacred work and have witnessed many miracles through the animals’ eyes. I take a very holistic and client-centered approach to problem-solving with a spiritual aspect to all my work.
Shamanic Animal Healing
As shamanic practitioners, we know humans are a part of the web of creation, as much a part of nature as animals, plants and trees. So why shouldn’t we be able to communicate with our fellow nature beings? The answer is we can. By employing the age-old practice of shamanic journeying into non-ordinary reality and asking for guidance from helping spirits and power animals, those who are adept in journeying can engage with animals, plants and other nature beings and be shown what may be happening with a particular animal, person, or situation. These helpers provide wisdom and guidance which is helpful and loving to those involved.
An Ancient Skill
The link between animal communication and shamanic practice is very close, if not overlapping. They are both nature-based practices and spirit communication. Once a person has made a shift to be able to open to all that is, communication with all that is follows naturally. We were all born with the capacity to do this. Some of us “remember” the ancient skills when humans and animals spoke to each other.
