Animal Communication

Consultations with Teresa


An Interactive Conversation with Your Animal—
not a psychic reading about your animal

Looking into the eyes of this greyhound, one cannot help but see the amazing soul within. Having an actual conversation with such a soul—the soul of any animal—using the skills of loving, respectful, empathic and telepathic inquiry, tells us so much more about their stories, their journeys, their current thoughts, feelings and needs than what is gleaned from a one way psychic/intuitive reading. The focus of my consultations is on creating interactive, mutually respectful conversations with animals and their people, versus one way "psychic readings" of an animal's energy or messages. A good psychic reading is like getting a clear, detailed picture. While such a picture can provide helpful information and clues for people about their animals, they are also, unfortunately, often filled with lots of assumptions or the readers' personal interpretations about "what the psychic picture means." Traditional psychic readings also often include direct advice or imposed solutions about what the recipient "should do."

An interactive, empathic approach on the other hand is one in which the reader not only receives messages and information as in a traditional psychic reading, but facilitates a process to help the animal and the person further understand, clarify and use the information exchanged in a meaningful and/or practical way. In this method, the values, needs, desires, and goals of both the animal and the person are respected and intentionally part of the conversation. This is--philosophically and by design--fundamentally different from a one way "psychic reading."

Animal Communication-Naya

A psychic reading can provide valuable information. However, until the information received from the animal is part of a meaningful dialog with the animal and the person, the information is just information--which may or may not be used constructively. When we receive the results of a medical test, we don't just want the numbers or to have someone else's interpretation of the information and what we should do forced down our throat; we want help understanding it regarding our concerns (not just the practitioner's concerns) so we can make the best choices to help our animal. And we want support as we consider our options of what to do with the information, not have someone dictate what we should do. It is the same with animal communication.

Furthermore, even when detailed, accurate information is gleaned from the animal, even when open, clear communication has been facilitated, this work must always be offered with an open heart. Information alone can be misused or useless if the heart, if love, is not the foundation and purpose of communication with animals.

Professional animal communication is not about performing psychic parlor tricks. It is not about forcing behavior. Even though it can be ethically and effectively used to help negotiate behavior change, animal communication is not a tool of coercion. When done professionally, it is not about the ego of the practitioner, or showing off how much we can "prove" we know. It is about exchanging information and resolving problems for the purpose of deepened intimacy, understanding and love.

Animal communicators and the field of animal communication are referred to by many names: pet psychic, interspecies communication, telepathy with animals, pet whisperers with dogs, cats, horses, whales and other animals, etc. Whatever terms are preferred, what is important is that when we love animals and want to honor and effectively communicate with them, we must relate to them beyond biology and beyond behavior--to acknowledge and communicate with them at the level of their souls.
