Can a pet be psychic? Yes! For a variety of reasons. Animals live in a different energy frequency than we do and they aren’t as mentally cluttered as we are. They have terrific ‘antennas’ to the spirit world and can regularly ‘see things’ most humans can’t. Just notice how your pets behavior changes and at times seems to be responding to things you can’t see – whether jumping over something in your empty hallway, or taking great pains to walk around it, or looking up excitedly as if responding to someone who’s not visibly there. One of my pets was extremely vocal whenever my great grandmother was visiting from The Other Side…playing a game of “MEOW” exchange that my granny and I played when I was just a small kid. Indeed, animals are closely connected to the spirit realm, and they can also be highly intuitive and perceptive to our emotional states and bodily changes as well.
Remember that animals live in the present moment: there is only ‘now’ in their world. And they are not as encumbered with ego as us humans are. When information comes to them they receive it as a matter of fact, without deep analysis or doubts. When humans receive intuitive information we commonly struggle with understanding how it could be that we know something. But remember, the very definition of intuition is knowing something without knowing how we know it. Animals are not concerned about how they know something, they simply accept it as fact and move on.
When animals have intuition they take in the information as is and respond accordingly if necessary. They don’t call up the other dogs in town and debate the possibility of whether what they saw was real or not – to animals, it’s all equally real. Nor would most animals waste time second guessing themselves. If they see something in their way, they move around it. If they are being invited to play by either a spirit or a human and it feels like a good idea to them, they indulge. If they sense something that stresses them, they react. They are in the moment.
Animals are also extremely good at sensing things. Their hearing, sight and sense of smell is more acute than ours. They have sensors in their feet, whiskers and mouths. When they smell the breeze they are able to pick up on far more things than the human body is able to detect through our olfactory system. Animals are also very perceptive on picking up on people’s energy or auras. When they come in contact with a new human they react on several levels…from the sensory to extrasensory perception (ESP).
Animals use their ESP quite regularly. This is how your pet knows when you are having a down day and comes to help comfort you. Your aura changes with your emotional energy and pets can pick up on these changes in our auric field. When your heart is breaking over a relationship gone south, your animal patiently allows you to cry and wipe your tears on their fur. When you feel alone your pet shows up and drops it’s favorite toy in front of you. They know. When you need a break from your computer, they put themselves in your path and convince you that you need some fresh air….NOW…and they are right!
As if all that wasn’t enough, animals also communicate telepathically. Any pet owner who’s watched their pets interact with each other knows this. Telepathy is wordless communication. And since they can communicate with each other telepathically, it would stand to reason that if we tuned in they would with us as well. The first time one of my cats, Xavier, spoke to me telepathically it shocked the heck out of me. Clear as a bell his words shouted in my head as I carried him up a steep hill while he was convalescing. “Put me down!” he shouted telepathically to me. And out of total shock I dropped him. He turned and looked over he shoulder at me with a disgusted look and said, “THAT was embarrassing!” It was a moment that forever changed the way I dealt with my pets. Silly me, I always had a sense of them, but this was a whole new level. Xavier’s telepathic words were heard clear as a bell inside my head. And from that moment on Xavier and I regularly ‘spoke’ with each other telepathically and my other pets began to join in as well.
Want to try it on your animals? It’s not hard. Think of your message. Keep it simple. Relax and say your message to them inside your head. You’ll know they are ‘listening’ because often dogs and cats will often look slightly away and hold very still when they are communicating telepathically with each other. Your pets may even have a little shock of their own when you start telepathically connecting with them – the same way I did when Xavier broke through to me. After you send your message, sit still, breath, and relax. If they are going to respond, it will come swiftly into your mind, almost immediately. At first you may simply see a change in their physical body language or they may come over to you and affectionately respond. Telepathic messages are very fast. It’s much quicker than DSL. Remember, most animals are not verbose. They say things very simply and as a matter of fact. Their communications are direct and short.
Another way to communicate with your pets using telepathy is to send them the mental picture of what it is you want them to know or do. If you want to send them love, send them the image of you hugging them, praising them. Watch how they smile at you when they get it. A couple things to remember…it doesn’t work if your pet is asleep. Keep it simple. Start by sending messages while you are with them in the same room and watch for ‘acknowledgements’ in their body language. If you are leaving the house, send simple telepathic images to your pet. Start with the image of you leaving, smiling, your pet relaxing. Then follow it immediately with the image of yourself returning. If you will be back at night, include that information in your image of when you return by showing darkness outside.
If you will be gone several nights send the image of your pet sitter arriving, happy to see them, helping them, and you can also send them the number of how many ‘nighttimes’ it will be before you return. Keep it simple. Animals don’t know days of the week. They know now. They know to measure days by nightfalls and sunrises. If it’s three nights, show three sunsets and sunrises. If you will be back before the full moon, send them that image.
While you are away from home, you can send your animals the telepathic image of when you are on your way home. A fascinating study in the UK showed that many animals ‘knew’ when their owners were leaving work and heading home for the day. Even if the owner varied the time they left work, at precisely the same window of time their dog would get up and adjust their position to one of anticipation and greeting near the door or window. So how did these dogs know that their owner would soon return? Telepathy. It’s believed that as the owner began to get ready to leave work for the day they began to shift their thoughts to returning home-in essence, sending their thoughts ahead. Like a good radio signal, their animal’s ‘antennae receiver’ then picks up that signal and presto, the animal ‘knows’ that their owner will soon return home and they assume the waiting position.
So, is every pet a gifted psychic? No, although on a bad day most are still ahead of us since they aren’t caught up in self analysis or ego. Some are better at it than others, some more open to it than others, and others are too tense, just like us humans. Practice and experiment with your pets and see how they respond. Some may begin to telepathically respond with words. Others may appreciate your images or pictures and respond to you with affection and behavioral changes. Practice, be relaxed and remain patient. Let the animals show you how they like to connect with you, you can’t force them to talk telepathically. One of mine sends words only rarely. Usually in short sentences with a lot of meaning: “This is welcome.” “Most enjoyable.” “You help.” “You are kind.”
And one last thing, always tell your pets what’s going on in your household. If company is coming over, tell them ahead of time. If you are going to have small children coming, tell your pets. Send them the imagery. Show everyone looking calm and happy. If a contractor is coming to make loud noises, show your pet the image of being safe and undisturbed in another room. Remember that your pets have feelings just like we do and they appreciate knowing what’s up. A few moments of your time will help your relationship with your pets grow to a beautiful new level.
