Last week I blogged about my relationship with my dog, Charlotte. I described to you what my heart felt the moment I met her and how I feel about her right now. Why do I feel the way I do? I don’t know, I just do. I know you understand that sometimes there are no explanations for these things. I’ve learned over the years that sometimes explanations aren’t necessary.
This brings me to the question I’m often asked…..do I talk to my own pets? The answer is no. When I’m at home playing or cuddling with Charlotte, I am no longer an animal communicator, I am her mom, the leader of her pack. I am emotionally and physically wrapped up in her temperament, her moods and her day to day care. To try to put all of those things aside and talk to Charlotte with an open mind, is impossible for me to do. How would I know that what I’m hearing and sensing isn’t all tied up in my relationship with her? I could be reading something into her message that wasn’t really there.
Before I talk to any animal, I first meditate. Then I say a prayer to the Great Spirit requesting her help. I always ask for an open mind, a blank book so to speak, with no preconceived ideas or notions so that I can listen to whatever the animal wants to tell me. That way I can really hear and accept what’s being communicated to me as the animal’s story, not mine.
I do sense things from Charlotte. I can usually tell what kind of mood she’s in and whether something has made her happy or sad. But, that’s as far as I take it.
But, that’s me……other communicators may feel differently about this. Certainly, if you feel you’re able to talk to your pet and understand what they’re thinking and feeling, you may be one of the lucky ones. I would just caution you to be careful about what you think you’re pet is saying to you….sometimes what we think they might need is something we need ourselves.
Blessings to you and your pets,
