Animals communicate in the universal language of telepathy. Telepathy is transference of thought from one being to another, one mind to another, without the use of words. It is the language of energy.
Intuition is the basis of animal communication. This type of telepathic and intuitive communication naturally occurs within the plant and animal kingdoms. From animal to animal, plants to animals, plants to plants, animal to human and also from human to human. For humans, a common experience of telepathy is that sense of ‘knowing’ who is on the other end of the phone, even before the phone is answered.
We use our intuition to receive the incoming information telepathically, and so once the energy is received it is processed into the translation of the receiver. This is the part where it is important to translate rather than interpret. If Interpretation occurs the message can be overlaid with the receivers own beliefs, or projections.
Telepathy is perceived within the quantum field and therefore physical proximity is not necessary. Each being of consciousness literally emits a unique energetic frequency, which is made up of thought wave patterns and emotions.
A domestic animal that has been taught certain commands in the language that is spoken in their home will have an understanding of those words (through conditioning) and that language, but they will not necessarily ‘think’ in that language.
Animals and nature rest more in a state of being rather than thinking, and that state is an expression of their unique energetic presence. We have much to learn from the natural world, especially when it comes to being present!
How do you figure out what’s going on in animal’s head and translate that into human language?
Receiving information intuitively is a process that tunes in with all of the senses, especially and including that beyond the five physical senses, our sixth sense. This incoming energetic information comes in through the unconscious mind of the receiver and is then filtered through the cellular memory, vocabulary, mental database and stored life experiences. It can be sensed as a vision or mental image, a feeling, emotion, sound, taste or just a very clear knowing or ‘gut feeling’. Once the internal translation process has occurred the conscious mind then becomes aware and translates the unconscious intuitive information into the understandable words and phrases of the human language.
What is the communication process like?
The process of inter-species communication is very common amongst our ancestors and native cultures. It is very natural for all of us however most of us are a bit out of practice. It is also very beautiful as it really is about the essence of our being connecting deeply with the essence of another being.
Our modern culture mostly regards speech language and the intellect as our highest forms of communication. As a result many of us have lost touch with this natural ability to communicate intuitively with other species and life forms.
To engage in this type of communication one must literally tune into the frequency of the being that they intend to communicate with. It is necessary to still the mind, and it requires intention, focus, sincerity, respect and empathy. It is very much a process of both heart and mind.
For those who would like to re-learn this natural skill, like anything learned, it will require practice. When the intuitive muscles have not been used for a long time, they will need to be exercised. One thing you can know for sure however is that we ALL have this powerful sense we call intuition.
There is much research and scientific studies available that demonstrates the sentience of plants, animals and their subtle communications. Books such as The Secret Life of Plants, Tompkins and Bird, or Dogs Who Know Their Owners Are Coming Home, by Rupert Sheldrake and many more are fantastic. You could also take the time to be still and observe the Natural World, marvel at the intricate intelligence of her stunningly designed eco-system and experience these dynamic connections for your self.
