How can you be sure you’re hiring the right animal communicator?
Animal communication has become really mainstream these days as more people are aware of telepathic communication between humans and animals. They know their animals have secret lives, thoughts, feelings, and wisdom. And that brings them to us, the Animal Communicator professionals, who are trained to be able to hear and understand them, to communicate with them so they share their innermost thoughts.
A few years ago, I was interviewed in a teleseminar
Many of the questions people wanted to know were all about animal communication:
- how to find a good animal communication practitioner
- how this works
- how to prepare for and what to expect from their sessions
- what about skeptics, and what to do if things go wrong.
Because this is such an unusual profession, I want to help people get started.
Briefly, here are some of the critically important points that people need to know about this work:
1) The First thing is to realize that not all communicators are created equal!
Communicators are not trained equally for that matter. It takes many years of practice and seasoning to be a good animal communicator. Some of us are excellent at some things, and not so good at other things.
2) No one can make your animals change if they don’t want to.
And, sometimes the problem isn’t with them – it’s with their people, their situation, their management, their diet, background, breeding or training – or lack thereof! They always do what makes sense to them – from their viewpoint. Our job is to discover what their viewpoint is, then to work with you to help resolve the problem.
3) Realize what the job actually is: animal communicators are trained to listen, telepathically, to animals.
This isn’t rocket science, and we do often make mistakes even though we are doing the best we can. We are not clairvoyant (usually), we do not predict the future, we don’t know everything, and we are not intending to read your mind – only your animal’s. By the way, everything we do is considered confidential.
We should be able to accurately understand what your animal is feeling and thinking, what the main issues are from their viewpoint, and be able to present something useful – whether it’s confirmation of what you may already know (which is valuable in itself), uncover new information you didn’t know before, provide clarity regarding direction to proceed with the problem, and be able to answer your questions to the best of our ability.
Ultimately, we may not be able to fix your problem. Some problems simply aren’t fixable. If they do not want to change or see no need /reason that they can agree with, then they won’t. You live and work with them 24/7. To expect some stranger to make them be different when you continue to reinforce their bad behavior by rewarding it or not making the effort required to teach them anything different is not realistic.
4) What about skeptics?
I encourage people and my students to be skeptical. You should listen and observe with your heart, but not be so open-minded that your common sense falls out! Not everything that we receive telepathically is going to be 100% accurate — it’s unrealistic to expect it. The best psychics in the world are only about 80% accurate! However, you may notice a change in the animal’s behavior, mood, or well-being… or in how they respond to you or their environment. Often they will, just through communicating with them. Some of us do better than 80% at times, and sometimes we are off. Expect it. Nobody’s perfect.
5) If something feels off in your session or you are being told things you know are not true — then Please! SPEAK UP!!
Let us know! Don’t worry about hurting our feelings. We would much rather learn from your honest feedback, and be allowed to correct or explain than have you go away unhappy.
6) The next important point to consider is this: We are all practitioners!
That means we are PRACTICING! Along with other professional practitioners — including veterinarians, doctors, and other medical professionals. We do our best to assist, given our experience, training, skills, and education.
7) So where do you find animal communicators?
I think that the best place to start is right here.
8) Do your research and choose a few animal communicators that appeal to you.
Then check them out. Everyone has their special area of interest and expertise. If you like the look and feel of their website, then contact them.
9) Interview them.
Ask them questions like: how long have you been working as an animal communicator? Tell them a bit about what you are dealing with. Ask them if they’ve worked with this kind of thing before. Ask what kind of preparation is needed for a session with them. While you interview them, listen to your own heart. IF you feel good with this person, then make an appointment.
10) Do they have any kind of a Guarantee for their work?
What will they do if things go wrong, or you are unhappy with your session? For instance, a guarantee may be if the communicator is unable to establish clear and accurate communication with your animal in the first 15 minutes, then you won’t be charged. And YOU are the judge of that.
The goal of a communicator is to offer insight, clarity and guidance to help resolve problems between you and your animal friends. If at this point all feels good to you, then give them a chance and make an appointment. Many companion animals choose to spend their lives attempting to break through our barriers, help us heal and become reconnected with all life. Animal communication can change your life – and improve the lives of your animal friends.
