Talk 2 The Animals: Working In Tandem With Your Intuition

This may, or may not, be music to your ears…..but did you know that we’re all intuitive? Yes, each and every one of us is intuitive, to whatever degree we choose to work with it, develop it and use it.

When we let it, our intuition can act as a guide, helper and protector. As children we were all intuitive and used it in our everyday life until society, perhaps even starting with parents, extended family, friends and teachers began to squash it down within us. Our intuition became buried under the pressure societal mores and norms.

You may have noticed your intuition stirring from it’s quietly buried resting place and seeping out into the everyday of your life. You might call it a hunch, a gut feeling, a coincidence or just plain luck.

Perhaps you’ve noticed:

  • You know who is on the phone or ringing a doorbell before you answer it
  • Your dreams are predictive and accurate
  • Your watch breaks, looses or gains time when you wear it

As you become more aware of your intuition and more comfortable with it, you may also notice:

  • It feels like you have no say in how your intuition works
  • You feel ‘ambushed’ by your intuition
  • You feel you’re a servant, always on beck and call with your intuition, having no rest from it

Join The Workshop

The good news is it doesn’t have to be like that, it’s not supposed to be like that. Your intuition is a tool you can use at your discretion and with training you can learn how to befriend it and work together, instead of feeling ambushed by it.

When you are trying to communicate with animals, it is particularly important that you learn to work with your intuition. Why? Because that is the way animals can most innately connect with us, through our intuition.

If you’re ready to take the next step in working with your intuition, especially if you want to use it for effective animal communication, I encourage you to join me in my January workshop: “Developing your Intuition for Effective Animal Communication”.

Talk 2 The Animals: Intuitive Communication With Wildlife

Often when the phrase ‘animal communication’ pops up, folks immediately think of communicating with their animal pals, the ones with whom they share their home. But animal communication is so much more than that!

Even if you don’t live with animals, animal communication comes in handy helping the animals in the wild. Below is an actual story one of my students shared:

A few weeks ago, I was sitting on the couch in my living room early in the morning, working on my laptop. It was very quiet – no one else in my house was awake and it was too early for the typical garbage truck or gardener noises to be making their rounds yet. I became aware of a squeaking sound outside the front door. I kept listening – not sure if it was a bird or an animal. It continued a few more times and my thought was ‘fawn’, so I went to the door to take a peek. I tried very hard to open the door without making a sound, but I couldn’t avoid a quiet click and when the door opened, it startled a tiny fawn right there on the driveway. He took off, still squeaking, and went behind a building, out of sight. In my head I was thinking “Oh no, don’t go too far, where’s your mother?!”

Pretty quickly, the mother came strolling down the driveway, making her noise calling for the baby (it sounded like a moan). After she was part way down the driveway – about 10 ft. from me watching her quietly from the doorway – she stopped and looked around. There were no fawn squeaks to be heard now and she didn’t seem to have any idea where her baby was. I must have moved slightly, because she suddenly startled and started to bolt in the complete opposite direction of her fawn.

Now I was concerned and I said ‘no, no, no’ – quietly to myself – and she stopped in her tracks and turned her head, facing in the right direction. I said ‘yes, go that way’ and she walked up the hill a bit and then turned again in the wrong direction and I said ‘no, no, the other way’ and she stopped again and turned her head in the right direction and then there was the baby, running from behind the building towards her. They nonchalantly reunited and calmly walked up the hill together.

Register for my “Building Your Intuition for Effective Animal Communication” to have experiences like Anne’s! See details below.

This all happened in a couple of minutes and was such a fun encounter. I took an animal communication class with Janet Roper last summer and all of us were hoping for this type of experience. We felt we needed proof that we were actually communicating with the animals in our lives. What I realized in this encounter is that my focus and communication came from a pure place of concern for the mother and fawn getting separated. I reacted and she ‘heard’ me. And this experience has given me confidence in my ability to tap into that wider web of connection that we all have access to when we open ourselves. ~ Anne B

If you’re an animal lover but don’t have pets, you will still find having this communication tool in your back pocket advantageous in building your relationship with the animals in your backyard and the animals in the wild. We all have the ability to communicate with animals, and, if you’re reading this blog, you also have the desire to communicate with the animals.

There’s no time like the present to act on your desire to learn animal communication. As my now-Angel-Horse Shiloh said:

“Tell people not to limp along with their animal communication skills. Now is the time for people to really learn to talk to animals, and to listen to us, too. We have much to share. But people limp along, they’re afraid to try, they don’t trust themselves. Now is the time, though, for people to talk to us.”

I encourage you to start the New Year with a New Relationship with all animals and learn how to build and strengthen your relationship with the animals through intuitive communication.

Not only do I offer classes in animal communication, I offer monthly online workshops. Here’s what’s on the schedule for January. Click on the date to register.

The workshops are an easy and effective way to learn how to connect with the animals in your own unique fashion. Each month offers a different workshop and each workshop is designed as a stand-alone module and covers a specific topic and aspect of animal communication. During the workshop I shares the methods and techniques that have been successful for me, and give you a solid foundation for moving forward, so you can incorporate the information from the workshop into your relationship with the animals.

Talk 2 The Animals: Bullet Journaling for Your Pet

How many of you are familiar with a bullet journal?

A little over a year ago, a friend introduced me to the concept and I got hooked. I discovered that in keeping a bullet journal I:

  • have all of my ideas collected in one central location instead of written on the backs of scores of envelopes
  • was easily able to track multiple goals
  • found it easier to stay organized and on track
  • had a place to keep favorite quotes and sketches

Simply put, it is a place where my to-do list, my planner and my writings all meet up in one central location, giving me a full picture of my life as it is now, what I am creating for the future and what it has been in the past. Following my own personality and imagination, the bullet journal doesn’t adhere to the traditional system, but what I have created works for me.

Bullet Journaling and Pets

At some point I realized it is also a great place to keep track of what’s going on with my animal family, so cat Raven and dog Max now have their own pages in my bullet journal.

If you already have a bullet journal or are thinking of creating one, here are some ways you can use it to help keep track of what’s going on with your animal pals.

Veterinary/Medical Care

  • Medications
  • Vaccinations
  • Supplements
  • Microchip
  • Allergies
  • Vet care/records
  • Tracking symptoms

  • Important dates (i.e. gotcha day, birthday, date of death)
  • Funny stories
  • “Firsts” (i.e. first time your puppy had a day with no accidents in the house, first time your cat caught a mouse)

Other reasons

  • Habit Tracker
  • It’s a good way to keep track when you have multiple people working on training
  • Feral cat care – a way to track the comings and goings of individual cats, as well as TNR
  • Everything is in one place should you be in an emergency and need to evacuate
  • Family notes – who does what, when they do it, and when it gets done
  • Grooming schedule

Once you get started, I’m sure you’ll discover even more ways to use your bullet journal! Leave a comment, let me know how you use your bullet journal to care and keep track of what’s going on in your animal pal’s life.
