Communication is Key to Animal Companionship

Feb 26, 2016 05:38PM ● By Linda Roberts

We welcome animals into our lives for a variety of reasons, including love, companionship, assistance and friendship. These connections make animals enjoyable in our lives. However, we don’t always anticipate some of the challenging issues that may arise with our animal companions, such as destructive behavior, barking, biting, scratching, food issues, allergies, health crisis and end-of-life decisions.



We bring animals into our lives for positive experiences or to de-stress, but when an issue occurs, such as destructive behavior, it adds stress to our lives. These animal behaviors and situations can be addressed and remedied by animal communication.

Animal communication is used to address emotional, physical, mental and spiritual concerns via productive, energetic, dialogue between human and animal. Animal communication can help illuminate these issues by providing valuable information or feedback to caretakers, trainers, veterinarians and other professionals.  

All animals, humans included, communicate by means of images, thoughts, sensations and memories. When we watch a flock of birds fly in formation or a school of fish moving together as one, these animals are utilizing nonverbal (some may say telepathic) communication to travel safely. Social animals communicate silently with one another throughout the day, sharing vital information about sustenance for the survival of their community. In the wild, animals reserve vocal communication for necessary functions, yet are thought by some people to maintain a constant, silent dialogue by sending images, thoughts and sensations to others in the group.

Animal communication is a nonverbal exchange across species and language barriers. It has been described as one soul speaking to another soul via an invisible energy channel. As the connection is reached, both souls (animal and human) can send thoughts, pictures, feelings, sensations and pains, through this channel. This communication is also commonly referred to as telepathic communication. When a telepathic connection is reached, because it is obtained through an energy connection between souls, communication can take place even though both participants may be miles apart, so animal communication sessions can be performed from a distance.

The animal does not need to be present to communicate telepathically. The theory is that this is possible because of the interconnected nature of the universe. We are all part of the whole. We all have the ability to communicate to animals. It is a matter of allowing our abilities to work and to avoid doubting the messages we receive from the animals.

Working with an animal and its human in a communication session can also help the person to realize the animal’s perception of a situation or feelings towards places or other people or animals. In a session, clear solutions can be communicated to both human and animal to benefit all involved, taking into consideration, safety, well-being, available resources and time.

Communication Brings Positive Results

Situation brought to an Animal Communicator:

Bea, a mastiff, was urinating regularly inside of a house, damaging carpeting, padding and floors, and causing great stress to her humans. A trip to the vet resulted in medication for a urinary tract infection. Through the course of treatment, the urination behavior did not improve, the humans became frustrated and even considered getting rid of the beloved dog due to the mess. Wanting to improve the situation for all, the distraught owner called an animal communicator to learn the true cause of the problem.


Solution discovered after a phone session with an Animal Communicator:

The communicator learned Bea was trying to get her humans’ attention by urinating. Bea was affected by stress in the home, and she wanted them to reduce their stress. The woman was amazed to learn of Bea’s sensitivity to stress. After the session, the owner talked with her husband about doing things differently and reducing stresses they brought home from their jobs. The owner happily reported that as they talked and took positive steps to reduce stress, Bea soon stopped urinating in the house.
