What is animal communication and animal healing?
Communicating telepathically with an animal is about learning to feel and understand what they are telling us. Animals have been communicating telepathically for as long as they have been on the planet. Humans are the only species, that I know of, that has allowed this ability to become dormant. Telepathic communication is more than just a "mind-communication" as is often depicted in sci-fi movies, it involves the full range of senses, which is perhaps why it has, for so long, been overlooked and poo-poohed, because it is so diverse.
Communicating telepathically with an animal is also not about giving an animal human characteristics, qualities and emotions (anthropomorphism). Heavens, no! To do so would be doing animals a huge disservice.
Humans are also the only species that has come to earth with the purpose of learning to deal with negativity in all its forms - anger, hatred, fear, anxiety, stress, worry and so on and so on - and because animals don't deal with such emotions in their natural state, its only in relation to humans that they come into contact with such emotions, and sometimes absorb such emotions into themselves, either in an effort to help their human deal with something, or as a result of having such an emotion forced upon them time and again. An example of the latter would be an abused dog that is forced to suffer at the hands of an angry human, and often ends up angry and displaying abusive and violent characteristics itself.
Animals have their own range of emotions, and characteristics and qualities, and wisdom. The way to tell these emotions apart from our own is by the beauty and lightness of their emotions. Their love is the purest and most unconditional of love, their happiness the most joyous and full of fun, their wisdom the gentlest and most truthful and loving.
Animals are already communicating with us. They are very much in touch with everything we think, and feel, so learning to communicate with them is more about learning how to "hear" them. Learning how our often negative thoughts and stresses impact on an animal is also important so that we can learn to modify and communicate in a positive way and from a space of the present time, rather than from the past or future.
Telepathic communication with animals involves learning how to still one's mind, how to get away from the busy-ness of our everyday thoughts, and how to achieve a state of stillness, of quietness in the mind. It is from this quiet space that we will be able to feel and recognise what we receive from the animals we communicate with. Everyone has the ability to do it, but much like an unused muscle it requires practice, discipline and more practice to develop and make stronger.
Animal healing, in the context of The Animal Healing Centre, is the use of a variety of alternative health therapies to bring animals back to health, ease stress and anxiety, heal from surgery, release fears, and for any other health or behaviour problem stemming from emotional distress and dis-ease.
Each of the communicators that work with The Animal Healing Centre are encouraged to explore and find which therapy works best for themselves, and then to incorporate this therapy into their communications with animals.
The healing therapies used most frequently, include reiki, crystal healing and pendulum work.
All of these therapies are non-invasive, non-intrusive forms of energy work, and work well in both distant healing and one-on-one sessions. Animals are very open to energy work, and respond extremely well to all of these therapies. They can be used to clear emotional blockages throughout the body, resulting in an easing of stress, anxiety, trauma, fear, as well as facilitating physical healing to an injury or operation.
It is often our experience that the animals in a household reflect the blockages and emotional distress experienced by their humans, and will often display a physical illness as a result of these emotional blockages before the humans are aware of it, and before it starts to become a physical dis-ease within. As a result of this, we often find ourselves focusing on the helping the humans to clear and heal and these therapies work very well on humans too.
