ANIMAL COMMUNICAT ION: T he Telepathic Connection Penelope Smith In this age of ecological emergency, more people are seeing the need to recognize their connection with all living beings. Communication between humans and animals has taken on a deeper meaning and urgency. We can learn so much f rom the animals about how to live in harmony and balance on the Earth. For animal lovers, direct telepathic communication boosts the understanding, joy and richness possible in relationships with their animal companions and all of lif e. When we look at the roots of the word "telepathy," we f ind that it means "f eeling across a distance." Telepathic communication involves the direct transmission of f eelings, intentions, thoughts, mental images, emotions, impressions, sensations, and pure knowing. Animals obviously communicate through physical action and their own complex languages. T hey also communicate telepathically, both among each other and to humans. People receive the messages to the degree they are listening, can tune in, or are perceptive to them. photo by Carole Devereux Children are born with the ability to communicate telepathically with their own and other species. Humans in this society are generally socialized to use verbal language as the accepted and "higher" mode of communication and discouraged f rom getting human or other species' thoughts and f eelings directly. We are also conditioned to believe that animals are generally inf erior to humans in their ability to think, f eel, and make non-instinctual choices, so we learn to separate ourselves f rom mutual and equal communication with them. T he word ANIMAL comes f rom the Latin, ANIMA, which means lif e principle, breath, air, soul, living being. Recognition of the spiritual essence of animals and respecting them as f ellow intelligent beings is vital to f acilitate interspecies telepathic exchange. Animals are able to communicate with humans who are open to the telepathic connection. T hey get your intentions, emotions, images, or thoughts behind the words, even if the words themselves aren't totally understood. I have communicated with animals all my lif e. Since 1971, I have successf ully used with animals the

same counseling techniques that help humans through traumas and problems. Over the years of listening and talking to thousands of animals and counseling them and their people, I have routinely seen upsets and problems resolve, negative behavior disappears, illnesses and injuries heal speedily, and warmth and communion between humans and animals blossom. For those who are skeptical and need physical proof of telepathic communication, these of ten-dramatic changes are evidence. Although the ability to communicate telepathically usually is lost in childhood in our culture, where there is love f or animals and willingness to re-learn, that ability can be revived. T he rewards are mutual expansion and delight f or human and non-human. T he f irst thing you can do to start on the road to direct communication with animals is to discard any condescending attitude that animals are lower, less evolved, or less intelligent beings. T his kind of attitude blocks true communication with animals, just as it does with humans. Regard animals with respect, openness and as potential teachers, and this alone will enable you to observe them with a f resh light and open up a wellspring of inf ormation f rom them about who and how they are. Another barrier that needs to be surmounted is invalidating your own potential to receive telepathic communication f rom animals. If you love animals you already "hear" what they say to some degree, even if you are not aware that you are doing it. Commonly, when I explain what animals are communicating, people exclaim, "I thought he was trying to say that" or "I kind of picked that up." Lack of recognizing the reality of that perception as it occurs causes people to miss out on continuing the conversation and developing their understanding and ability. Your animal f riends can become f rustrated at your lack of understanding their thoughts, emotions, and intentions when they directly communicate them to you, and so they have to resort to methods that you do understand, such as tearing up the f urniture or peeing on the carpet. You'll be amazed at what can happen if you accept the f eeling, thought, emotion, picture, or impression that you get when you are quietly attentive to an animal and continue your communication f rom there. Raindance & Regalo 1. More than any other factor, your attitude toward animals inf luences how receptive you are to their communication and how willing they are to communicate to you. Respect and revere animals as f ellow beings - dif f erent in physical f orm than you but of the same spiritual essence and potential. If you approach animals with condescension, thinking they are inf erior in intelligence, awareness, or substandard in any way, you limit your ability to perceive and understand them as they truly are. As you increasingly see and treat them as f ellow intelligent beings, you allow them to express themselves more deeply and f ully to you, and your relationship develops, matures, elevates, and expands. Focusing only on the biological aspect of an animal, while f ascinating and wondrous in itself , can place you in the ruts of conventional notions and inhibit true seeing of the spiritual essence and wisdom behind the physical f orm. Admiring an animal's spiritual qualities, such as sincerity, trust, love, devotion, appreciation, loyalty, empathy, kindness, honor, honesty, patience, integrity, humility, joy, unself ishness, wisdom... will help to transf orm your whole relationship, enhancing the two-way communication and understanding between you. Be humble and receptive, and allow animals to teach you.

2. Believe in your own intuitive ability to give and receive telepathic communication. Don't invalidate your perception of impressions, images, or messages in any f orm. 3. Be ready, receptive, mentally quiet and alert. If your mind is busy, f ull of thoughts and background static, you can't listen and receive. To get to this state may take considerable practice and changes in lif estyle. Avoid substances and environmental conditions that dull the mind or make it too agitated. Adopt habits that reduce stress and increase calmness, like balanced f ood, exercise and rest, yoga, meditation, spending quiet time with your animal f riends and out in nature. 4. Cultivate flexibility - willingness to learn f rom all beings and to change your ideas. Watch f or judgments and preconceptions that limit receptivity to what the animal is really communicating. Be open to surprises - the unexpected. Let go of conventional notions of human/animal communication. Be ready f or animals to communicate, and question them on any level - f rom what f ood they like, to what they can teach you to improve your lif e, to what they consider the most prof ound truths. Mattie and Beau photo by Trisha McCagh 5. Be emotionally peaceful. Having an emotional investment in what animals say to you or how they should be can inf luence what you receive. If you require that animals like you or be af f ectionate bef ore you can communicate with them, this can disturb them, block their true f eelings or ideas or cloud your receptiveness to them. In working with improving your two-way communication with animals, don't f lood animals with emotion, whether it's love, f ear, sadness or anger. If you are putting out strong emotion, you are generally not receptive to anything else, and you will get back only your own emotion or the animal's response to it. 6. Be alert and calm. Don't f orce the communication or try too hard. Notice your body posture and tension - leaning f orward over the animal, straining f orehead or f acial muscles, breathing shallowly, tightening hands, manipulating or controlling the animal. Shift into the receptive mode. Lean back, open chest and hands, breathe slowly and deeply, relax, and listen. 7. Let communication assume its own form, whether it be f eelings, images, impressions, thoughts, verbal messages, sounds, other sensations, or simply knowing. Get f amiliar with how you receive, so you recognize it and let it and other avenues open up. Let the sense of meaning unfold by itself. Don't analyze, evaluate or criticize. Remain innocent and nonjudgmental. Accept what you get, and acknowledge the communication. If in doubt, relax, and ask again, but don't keep doubting and refusing to accept a communication impression, or you build your own walls. Be willing to take risks - don't be af raid to acknowledge whatever communication you get. Don't worry about what other people will think or even what you will think! 8. Practice with a wide variety of animals in various situations. Step back f rom your normal routine and expectations, and be willing to learn and discover. Have fun!

Containing and Grounding Your Energy

Penelope Smith Training in interspecies telepathic communication requires increased awareness of energy f ields and how we handle our own energy. One of the f oundation exercises to learn to clearly and naturally send and receive telepathically is practicing to be quietly present not doing anything, but just being aware and receptive. Getting ones busy thoughts, judgments, evaluations, analysis and mental projections (all f orms of energy) out of the way is essential to open a clear channel to heighten perceptions and to experience subtle energies and f eelings. Learning how to clearly communicate telepathically is a path of mastery of self , including ones energy. To the degree ones energy is out of control and projected on to the animals and humans one is trying to understand or assist, one gets mixed, unclear, or distorted messages, not purely understood as the animal or person is intending. T he result can be detrimental or at least lack the miraculous healing potential that pure communication and understanding of f er. Many people are not aware of what they are doing with their mental and emotional energy. T hey unconsciously send energy in various directions and of ten do not notice the ef f ect they are having on others. Animals can readily experience and ref lect back how people are impinging upon them with their energy. Of ten people are so busy doing something else rather than being present, aware and listening that they dont notice until these ef f ects are pointed out to them. Our urban society conditions humans to disperse energy in many directions rather than containing it in a calm, centered f ield within and around oneself . T he speedy, competitive emphasis of our culture prompts people to push, struggle, and become distracted, which drains their own power. People suf f er f rom unf ocused mental attention, runaway busyness of the mind, lack of connection with their body and f eelings, and running currents of anxiety. Animals are generally very sensitive to energy in the f orm of thoughts, intentions, emotions, or f eelings directed toward them. Chaotic, disruptive, f orcef ul or invasive cascades of energy, f rom the more obvious, such as loud or raucous sounds, to the more subtle, such as emotions and intentions, can disturb, alarm, or provoke them. When people initially encounter animals, they of ten f lood the animals with energy in their desire to see them. T hey put their energy and automatic judgments onto the animal without even knowing that they are doing so. T his can cause a range of reactions in animals, depending on their particular temperament and their f amiliarity with people. I have seen animals f eel uncomf ortable, oppressed, af raid, distracted, or angry when they received this uncontrolled energy f rom one person or a group of people. Wild or traumatized animals of ten react severely. I routinely ask people at lectures when animals are present on stage or when students are meeting animal teachers at courses, to bring their energy back, cease projecting onto the animal and to keep their energy f ield contained and calm. T hen the animals can be who they are in their own space and not have to deal with the mental and emotional energy projections of people. People intuitively know what I mean and comply without any explanation when I ask them to shif t f rom staring or pushing energy f orward and shif t into a more gentle, relaxed or sof t f ocus. T his is a respectf ul way to be with the animals. I have seen sensitive animals, such as my chickens, try to f ind a place to hide when a group of staring people come to see them. As soon as people are instructed to become quietly present with their energy contained, the chickens then walk all among the people, interacting calmly, happily, and even playf ully. T he resulting rapid transf ormation is obvious in how animals f eel and behave. I have f ound throughout my lif e in communicating with animals that animals are drawn to a quiet, attentive presence. T hey are attracted, become curious, and are very willing to share their lif e; they no longer think of you as a human predator or a disruptive presence but as a f ellow being or

kin. Some beginning animal communicators have asked me what to do when animals dont wish to communicate to them. T hey may suppose that the animal is preoccupied or they picked the wrong time. I have f ound that animals are very willing to communicate when you are quietly and patiently present and are simply open to receive their communication. T hey become peacef ul and calm in the presence of centered, calm being. T hey relax when they dont have to deal with the invasive energy of thought projections and agendas. T hey open their hearts and communicate f reely to you. In this atmosphere understanding and healing can occur. GET DOWN! Here is a practice to contain and bring your energy down into your body and so you can f eel calmly centered and connected to animals. Feel your f eet f irmly on the ground and f eel your connection to Mother Earth. Even if you are in a building or on some object, you can connect to the Earth through the f loor of the building or through any material. All constructed things are made up of materials f rom and also connected to the Earth. Allow your energy to be drawn lower in your body, away f rom your head and the motion of mental projections and into the organic f eeling of your whole human animal f orm. Feel the Earth caressing your f eet and your f eet caressing the Earth. Feel your connection to the animal(s) you wish to communicate with through your f eet on the ground. T his is what it means to be grounded or consciously connected to Mother Earth. As you lower your f ocus in your body, to your heart, belly or f eet, you can more easily get in touch with your own f eelings. Recognizing your own f eelings is a prerequisite to being able to dif f erentiate and recognize anothers. You can then f eel what the animals are f eeling, rather than trying to f igure it out mentally and mixing it with your own thoughts and f eelings. A solid connection with the Earth helps you to become one with animals and sense their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual reality without the strain (f or you and the animals) of reaching f orward with mental projections, analysis, or other energy. T his method of getting down through your body into telepathic or extended sensing af f ords a more complete picture of what is going on with the animal than more separated methods of communication. It is more likely to yield a f ull and accurate interpretation when put into words. Reconnect with the Earth. Gather your energy down and calmly centered in your whole body. Feel your own animal nature. T hen sense more deeply what the animal is f eeling through your own animal f orm. In the process, you may restore lost or denied aspects of yourself , deepen in loving compassion, and increase your ability to help othersprecious rewards f or your ef f orts.

Agendas, Illusions, and Loving Care Penelope Smith Species Link magazine Winter 2002

A concerned animal lover sent me an article published in the September/October 2001 issue of The Animal's Agenda (a magazine published by "T he Animal Rights Network") entitled "Hear Spot Talk Are Animal Communicators Psychics or Shams?" by Elizabeth Hess. While the author exerted genuine ef f orts to explore the f ield of animal communication, her general tone in this lengthy article came across as cynical to mocking. T he title of the article seemed strange, juxtaposing psychic" and "sham." Usually people who are

suspicious of spiritual realities assume psychic and sham to be inseparable. I wondered if she was going to elucidate the dif f erence between a true psychic and a phony." In relaying dif f erent practitioners' approaches, she appeared to cast doubt on all of them. T he reality of telepathic communication seemed very nebulous to this author, as it does to many people. It brings up the central issue about how we can ascertain what is "real" or "true" versus what is "phony," "made up," "imagined," (the last three are synonymous to many people) in the physical universe or in any dimension. People have unique and evolving perceptions of what is real and true according to their own senses, all the inf luences within and around them, and their own choices. Many people f eel uncomf ortable with and resist the f luidity of events and perspectives in this universe. T hey may seek to maintain rigid points of view and to dogmatically categorize things as true or untrue, right or wrong, good or bad, without room f or debate or shades of dif f erence. Our experience of this universe is subject to our imagining and how we f ocus. We can imagine and f ocus on our experience as benign, peacef ul, and harmonious, and f or us it is so. We can imagine and f ocus on our experience as threatening, f illed with horror and pain, and f or us again, it is so. We can imagine and f ocus \ others on a common reality and agree upon its nature and f or we who have agreed, it is so. What is real, eternal, solid, and never changing? Ageless wisdom f rom many traditions tells us only that which is f ound deep within us and everywhere in every element of the universe, called Spirit, God, Divine Being True Self , or core essence. What is ever changing, illusory, a "sham"? T he material universe or physical reality. T his universe is our constantly changing playground of illusions with which to experience a multitude of colorf ul realities and enjoy ourselves as dif f erent aspects of the Whole/Oneness/God of which we each (individual beings and all elements) are part. Michael Roads details his gradual acceptance of the reality of telepathic communication with other lif e f orms in his excellent book, Talking with Nature. Af ter a tortuous battle between his intuition and personal experience against his logic, skepticism, and f ear, he f inally concluded: Where is the boundary between reality and illusion? Who decides what is real and what is illusion? Do we accept a common belief, or can we have an independent belief, isolated but real? How much our experience is an illusion based on what we think or expect is reality? ...If this is an illusion I am experiencing with Nature, if it is all imagination then it's okay. I like it. Who can make me a better offer? Polluted food and air? Is that better? To maintain a belief in death, fear, greed? Are they better? A dogmatic religion with a judgmental God? Is that better? My experience is uplifting, expanding, loving, creative, intelligent. Who can offer me a better reality or illusion? If I feel a great love toward Nature, and I feel love radiating to me from Nature, who has a better illusion to offer? If I feel compassion and love for humanity, if I am happy doing exactly what I want to do, who can offer me more than this? Suddenly it hit me. What am I fighting? Am I fighting an offer of love, of peace, of expansion, of creativity, of insight and intelligence, of knowing "me," of what "IS"? Fighting it for what? Do I want to remain with the common belief of pain, suffering, death, drudgery, sickness, of being the victim of life's misfortune when I know I can be who I am, where I am, when I am? Right... "now." ...I am not denying the pain, fear, doubt, sorrow of everyday reality, but neither need I cling to such a powerful belief while denying the creative, intelligent love of Nature... I accept my experience. I believe my experience. I know what I know. photo by Starr Taovil

For me what is real or true in this world is what resonates with the core of my being, my deepest experience, what f eels good and right in my heart and soul, what works f or me and is helpf ul to my evolution and happiness which includes all that is around me. In the f ield of telepathic communication with other species, I have f ound that telepathic connection resonates deeply within me and brings extraordinary and beautif ul manif estations. I have seen in countless cases how practice of this communication brings more peace, harmony, and happiness in our lives and the lives of our animal f riends and all beings on the Earth. Understanding of communication, whether human, interpersonal, internal, or interspecies is shaped by those involved. Modern science tells us that anything that is observed is inf luenced by the observer, theref ore making notions of scientif ic "objectivity" an elusive quest. As people f ollow the path of opening to their innate ability to connect and communicate with spirit in any f orm on Earth or beyond, they can experience many stages of growth. Skill with communication and how to interpret and counsel others with what they receive f rom animals improve with practice. It is unreasonable to expect animal communicators to inf allibly interpret and handle every situation that comes up with people and their animal companions. People in any helping f ield are wise to acknowledge their limitations as they humbly give their best service with loving care. What is gleaned f rom communicating with animals to soIve a problem may be as simple and practical as move the litter box," advice that could come f rom other means than telepathic communication, but is f ound very pointedly and quickly in this way. Sometimes communicating and counseling with animals creates amazing and immediately perceivable results, as spiritual roots are able to be tapped and f undamental realities are shif ted in animals and people. Miracles or unexpected healing and changes occur. T hat depends not only on the skill of the communicator, but the openness or readiness of the animals and their people to change, and divine grace within and all around received or f elt by those involved. What outcome is best f or concerned is not always what we think it should be. T here are many worlds to experience beyond socially accepted versions of reality. When a person is tapped into the multi dimensional nature of our existence and our own creative power, miracles are ordinary, and the ordinary is a miracle. We can decide what we wish to experience and assign it our own meaning or value. T he way we envision the world in our inner space manif ests in the malleable energy of the outer world. Many of us are shif ting our belief s to a new vision of a world where all beings live in harmonious connection with each other and the magic of communication with all lif e is the norm. Let it be so. SCIENT IFIC PROOF OF T ELEPAT HY Species Link Winter 2004 Penelope Smith with Anita Curtis, Mary Getten, Carol Gurney, Dawn Hayman, Barbara Janelle, Jeri Ryan, Elizabeth Severino, and Marta Williams An e-mail message f rom a man called R.C. started a thought provoking dialogue. In answering his earnest questions, I opened to new possibilities of bridging our f ield to a larger public. R.C. asserted that unless I could scientif ically prove the existence of telepathy and my claims about interspecies communication that I was potentially causing innocent people psychic damage. He f urther stated that truth is testable and repeatable and that scientif ic experiments should be set up to test the authenticity of our claims. He af f irmed his belief that the mechanism of what we called telepathic communication could be explained in terms of the normal f ive senses. I view telepathy as an extension of our f ive senses - a f inely tuned communication of energy, thoughts and f eelings experienced through internal and extended sensing. While telepathic communication is invisible, it is able to be perceived if one is attuned to and practiced in that f orm

of communication, even across vast distances. Radio waves are also invisible but able to be perceived with a properly tuned transmitter and receiver. For me the observable positive results of telepathic communication seen in animals and people are the proof of its existence and validity. T hese results include both physical behavior changes that can be easily seen plus emotional and spiritual healing which is experienced uniquely by the individuals involved. Outside observers or researchers would not experience the benef its in the same way. Scientif ic studies in remote viewing and other f orms of telepathic communication with humans and in other species have been done that show its nature and prove its existence. Well known biologist and biochemist, Rupert Sheldrake, employs scientif ic experiments to show that animals can telepathically communicate with people in his book Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home (And Other Unexplained Powers of Animals). Marta Williams, an animal communicator with a background as a biologist, mentions in her book, Learning Their Language that physicist, Russell Targ, did extensive studies on human intuitive powers, or “psi phenomena” f ocusing on remote viewing in his book The Mind Race: Understanding and Using Psychic Ability and related studies in Miracles of the Mind: Exploring Nonlocal Consciousness and Spiritual Healing. Also, Gary Schwartz used strict scientif ic protocol to test accomplished intuitives in The Afterlife experiments: Breakthrough Scientific Evidence of Life after Death. Animal communicators have repeated experience of the positive response of animals af ter communicating telepathically with them, of ten at a distance where no behavioral cues are observed. Specif ic inf ormation and results have been verif ied by numerous people, including veterinarians. In scientif ic parlance, these examples are considered anecdotal and not accepted as scientif ic proof . Rupert Sheldrake points out in his book that the word anecdote means “not published,” so an anecdote is an unpublished story. Once published, anecdotes become case histories. When people’s accounts point to consistent and repeatable patterns, anecdotes are called natural history. Dr. Sheldrake f eels that open minded scientif ic inquiry, paying attention to evidence and testing theories by means of experiment can be very enlightening. I had to overcome my resistance and doubt as to how such complex, intangible yet obviously benef icial results as those regularly obtained by animal communicators could be scientif ically tested. I began to see that setting up repeatable experiments to verif y some of the inf ormation obtained in animal communication could be another way to validate the existence and results of interspecies communication. Moreover, it could open the benef its of telepathic connection to another segment of the population. R.C. proposed this experiment: You have all made the claim that animals communicate information about their surroundings which you can receive. We know from experimentation that dogs are good at distinguishing shades of gray. So, they could tell a white bowl from a black one. For a given number of trials, place either the black bowl or the white bowl (maybe with a little treat in it) before the dog. Have the animal psychic who cannot see the bowl, "ask" the dog if the bowl that contains his treat is "kind of light" or "kind of dark" and record the answer. Calculate the percentage of correct answers. Recognizing that no communication is 100% (I have enough experience here to make this bold claim!), and that pure chance would predict correct answers 50% of the time, the existence of interspecies telepathic communication would be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt if your answers were correct significantly more than 50% of the time! I did an experiment on human telepathy in college on the relationship of emotional closeness of

sender and receiver and telepathic accuracy. In a series of separate trials, the people tested wrote down what number they received telepathically as I viewed one card at a time. T he correlation of telepathic accuracy and degree of emotional closeness was statistically signif icant. In the course of our e-mail discussion, I went f rom dread at receiving another long, involved message f rom R.C. to being excited about how we could use a scientif ic approach to expand our reach and ef f ectiveness. We could set up a study with many animal communicators, f rom beginners to experienced prof essionals, testing common inf ormation that animal communicators receive. As long as we would take the time and ef f ort to do this research, we could make it a more comprehensive and usef ul study than the dog bowl experiment R.C. proposed. Factual inf ormation, such as physical health conditions, living quarters, people in the f amily, and other elements of animals’ physical lif e could be checked. T his could help animal communicators to validate and even improve their own telepathic skill. Other parameters and ways to research are proposed by other contributors to this article. Brenda Fullick, a journalist writing f or Species Link, is seeking researchers to do this kind of study. Suggestions on accomplishing this are welcome. I asked other seasoned animal communicators, including some with scientif ic backgrounds, to respond to R.C.’s challenge. T he result is a rich exploration of many angles on the subject. T his landmark discussion can help us to better understand and present to others the validity of telepathic communication with other species. Elizabeth Severino of f ered: I would suggest that this man f irst read Power vs. Force by David R. Hawkins, M.D. Dr. Hawkins has spent his lif e studying the internal truth inherent in the body's knowing, its pure relationship to Truth and Universal consciousness, and the ability to sense and know that truth. He is the author of numerous scientif ic papers and videotapes and co- authored Orthomolecular Psychiatry with Nobel Prize Winner Linus Pauling. I f urther suggest that this man read T he Biology of Consciousness and watch the video, The Biology of Belief, both by Dr. Bruce Lipton. Dr. Lipton is a Stanf ord University Researcher whose work with cell behavior has yielded extraordinary insight into the molecular basis of consciousness including the conclusion that Neo-Darwinian biology is gravely in error. A major conclusion of Dr. Lipton's work is that the energy of compassion, love, and community actually changes the f ield into which it is expressed. Isn't that what animal communication is? Sensing with our f eeling body and introducing great love and compassion into a situation? I f igured out many years ago what I needed to f eel validation f or myself and to f eel validated by veterinarians and care-persons. I moved f orward to acquire that experience and the validation, of ten putting myself very much on the line. Many of my early experiences with each of the veterinarians I now work with as a veterinary medical intuitive were in emergency situations where lif e and death were in the balance. I was f irst tested as an intuitive in Vassar College in the 1960's through a study f rom John Hopkins University. A f ew unedited capsules f rom my notes f ollow. "K.C. called, dying cat, no external indicators of cause, cat said it inhaled chemical f ertilizers sprayed on next door neighbor's lawn, vet took immediate hair sample, sample conf irmed chemical poisoning, appropriate remedy given, cat recovered f ully." "D.K. called, dog dying, external indicator of major bite wound vet f elt was f rom either a brown spider or a wasp, vet said antidote f or one if it was the other would kill it, dog said it was a brown

spider, immediate antidote f or brown spider given, dog recovered f ully." "B.Sp. called, cat dying, hemoglobin level 13, vet said hemoglobin level must rise, prayed f or 45 minutes, hemoglobin level then 27, vet said 'medical impossibility but there it was'." "D.K. called, cat presented with major phlegm and near asphyxiation, okay only on oxygen, cat sent me basement's energy, sensed spores in basement, subsequent test proved spore presence in respiratory, remedies given, cat recovered f ully." One of my f avorites: "A.J. called, Dachshund paralyzed f or six weeks. A.J. said "not responding to anything" "tried everything" "no hope of recovery" "recommending euthanasia", dog said "not ready need help big-time", took this as God and prayer needed NOW, told A.J., begged A.J. to hold of f , A.J. agreed "what can we lose?", started praying deeply, A.J. called during prayer session & reported dog had "f allen into a deep trance" f eared trance meant precipitation of dog's death 'cause we agreed I would also pray f or Highest Good, dog woke up f inally af ter 2 hours (whew!), got up, walked and has been walking ever since." From Anita Curtis: I was told recently, “Experts have let us know that dogs are color blind.” T he f irst thing I do on a communication call is ask the animal to tell me something that will let his person know we are talking to him. Usually, if there is a physical problem, I f eel the animal’s pain or discomf ort. If there is no pain, the animal of ten describes a place or something in his environment. I am either shown a picture of an object, such as a green chair, or the animal will describe the item as well as the color. T he conversation can only continue if we have verif ication that we are speaking to the correct animal. One caller’s dog had run of f f rom the veterinarian’s of f ice f ar f rom where he lived. He had been gone f or over a week and needed surgery and medication. T he dog described to me telepathically several red brick buildings and the caller thought one of them might be a f irehouse. I asked the dog if he had seen long red trucks with ladders on the sides. He said he had seen the trucks but they were yellow. Fairf ax photo by Karla McCoy T he woman called the f irehouse at once and f ound out their trucks were yellow. She called me back excitedly and said she would set a humane trap with f ood in it in a certain place. We described the place to the dog and told him it was saf e to go there and eat the f ood. He got the message, went into the trap, and they had their dog back within hours of the call. T he gif ts of animal communication are the joy and relief f elt by the animals and their people when their problems are resolved, messages delivered, and f ears are put to rest. Sometimes the issues are simple. Many behavioral problems are resolved by communicating with animals. Cats who urinate beside the litter box can explain that they are “pissed of f ” because another kitty is f ed f irst, or they do not like the smell of the litter, or a myriad of other reasons. When the person makes the appropriate change the cat returns to using the litter box. T his happens too of ten to be a coincidence. In all the years that I have been communicating with animals my most poignant memories come f rom the times when I have been called to speak to an animal who was about to move on in his spiritual journey. I always ask the animal to give me inf ormation so the caller will know we are truly talking to his or her best f riend. T hat inf ormation usually comes in the f orm of where the pet will visit his person once he is in spirit f orm. It is comf orting f or the person to hear, “I will visit you in the room with the piano.”

T he callers are usually distraught because they think their beloved f riends are af raid. When they receive messages of love and understanding it helps to ease the pain of the transition f or both the person and the animal. Jeri Ryan addressed R.C.’s concerns: I understand your skepticism regarding "f elt-sense", or intuition, given that many have been f ound to be in error f or that and others have been persecuted f or the work they did to challenge that. I know that Galileo did much scientif ic work (as it was def ined in those days) to reach his conclusions. I do genuinely wonder, however, where his belief originated. Was it an intellectual "Ah ha!" af ter reviewing and rearranging the available data into combinations and permutations? Or was it the "f elt-sense that we call intuition? Descartes was renowned f or his scientif ic work, and is still greatly relied upon in modern times f or his major contributions to mathematics and physics. He was not challenged f or his mechanistic view of the world, which lef t no room f or f ree will and which has turned out to be greatly def icient, according to modern physics. T hat mechanistic view, when applied to nonhuman animals in Descartes’ time, allowed the most brutal research to be applied to them as subjects. Today that mechanistic view still allows the scientif ic use of animals again in brutal research, this time with the knowledge that they are indeed sentient, that they have emotional brains, and that they have emotional receptors on every cell in their bodies. Emotional receptors exist on every cell in the human body as well. T hey assist in that "f elt-sense." Einstein did f eel uncomf ortable with his own theories, as did Max Planck with Quantum T heory. Yet both revolutionized physics to the point where now there are two camps: classical and modern. Einstein ref used to accept Quantum T heory in its entirety, even though he contributed to its development, because he insisted that "God does not play dice," a rather unscientif ic statement. Einstein’s T heory of Relativity was a vast departure f rom the Newtonian scientif ic method. Relativity takes research into the real world, where phenomena are not removed f rom their inf luential environments and isolated. Both approaches are very usef ul, and much needed. T here is a solid piece of research on telepathic communication conducted in the early part of the 19th century by Vladimir Bechterev. See the Journal of Parapsychology, 13, 166-76. It could be of great benef it to do f urther study of telepathy between humans and animals. Dean Raden conducted consciousness research f or twenty years at Stanf ord Research Institute, think tanks and several universities. He has applied science to psychic phenomena, and specif ically to telepathy. Dr. Raden addresses nonlocal consciousness. T he physics phenomenon of nonlocal resonant activity of two separate particles, no matter how f ar away f rom each other they might be, has been applied as possible substantiation to telepathy per se, and then to telepathy between animals and humans. Larry Dossey, a medical doctor with a penchant f or physics has reported on this, also, and on the nonlocal ef f ectiveness of prayer in healing. I am a deeply spiritual person, as I understand you (R.C.) to be f rom your discussion of God. I am totally comf ortable without proof f or my spiritual belief s or even f or the existence of God, albeit that is not a scientif ic attitude according to Newtonian science. With the strength of your support f or Newtonian science, I wonder if you are. Please consider the f act that many animal communicators have their f eet on the ground. T hey sincerely want to be of help, and they are. T hey study; they learn. T heir work is an extension of the f ive senses that f alls into the intuitive realm. However, the intellectual is also present to monitor the work f or interf erence, accuracy and validity, and to determine the reality of recommendations f or solution. T heir work is substantiated by the

validations they receive f rom their clients and by the willingness of the animals to change their behavior. When I studied psychotherapy, I learned that the healing methods that are ef f ective are the ones that the af f licted people embrace in their belief system. Newtonian science may consider such healing to be a result of placebo ef f ect. Perhaps, and placebo studies show that the results of modern medicine could be the same. Belief systems are very powerf ul. Rupert Sheldrake addresses intention as an important ingredient f or successf ul telepathic communication between animals and humans. Intention is what allows the karate black belt to crack a cinder block with the side of her/his hand. It allowed a nine year old f emale child to crack a two inch thick block of wood with the side of her little hand. It allows the spiritual practice of walking over hot coals in bare f eet to occur without injury or pain. Intention allows telepathic communication with animals to happen. T hese have all been considered impossible events. Telepathy with animals is considered by many to be impossible, as were travel to the moon, the healing ef f ectiveness of prayer, artif icial intelligence, etc. Field theory and the observation that particles become each other suggest that telepathy between any beings is possible. We always work to improve our work. Research could help that. Your suggestion f or a research topic is a good place to start. I would like to see it move into the phenomenological method of research, a bit closer to modern physics because it allows f or movement, instead of conf ining the study to a static linear approach. According to modern physics, to have the whole truth we need to allow f or some mystery. Barbara Janelle responded: Relatively f ew ideas and "f acts" in our world have been subject to double-blind studies. Doubleblind studies are f ull of dif f iculties. T hey attempt to look at only a couple of variables although f unctioning in our world is very much more complex. Examples are studies done in animal psychology and health. Animals, f rom mice to monkeys, are kept in artif icial environments. Moreover, the larger species are usually kept in isolation. T hese conditions stress animals and any study results are questionable because the impact of stress on immunity and behavior is not f ully understood. T here is a large and growing body of evidence that suggests that the researcher's interest and attention can change study outcome. Even something like a lab technician's interest in a particular animal can change that animal's behavior and health. We have a very limited understanding about how inf ormation spreads. Rupert Sheldrake and others have written about how a whole species behavior shif ts once a threshold population knows how to do something. Work on String Theory suggests that once cells have been in contact that they continue to show similar changes over time even when separated by thousands of miles. T his suggests a wide range of additional variables that we know little about. T here is a huge amount of writing on the philosophy of science that essentially says that the scientif ic approach is very limited as a testing procedure and what we learn f rom it are only approximations in understanding, not hard, unchanging f acts.

Another way of looking at the validity of ideas and inf ormation is to examine the ef f ects of using them. Indeed much of what we think we know through scientif ic study is based on examining ef f ects. For example very little is understood about what electricity is, but we have a lot of studies that show us what it does. A principle of Hawaiian Huna Philosophy is "A measure of truth is ef f ectiveness." We can work with this principle in examining interspecies communication. Primary questions are: a) Does interspecies communication change something in the behavior, health or performance of the animal? b) Does interspecies communication change the relationship between animal and owner? c) Does interspecies communication change anything in the communicator's life? T his is an avenue that we can explore both f ormally and inf ormally through questioning clients about the ef f ect of the work. Inf ormally, as I look at the letters I have received f rom clients in the last three months, about 80% of them mention changes in the animal and/or in their relationship with the animal as a result of the communication consultation. Formalized studies using questionnaires can certainly be devised and done. T his kind of approach is commonly used in health studies and in the social sciences. T here are other indicators that interspecies communication is real: a) In almost every communication there is some piece of inf ormation that signals to the owner that the communicator is actually receiving inf ormation f rom the animal. b) In classes, there is always some correlation in inf ormation received by the participants. T hese can be examined in f ormal studies as well. On the test of dogs seeing color, it is my sense that dogs and other animals, including many humans, experience colors as vibration. An animal can send this kind of inf ormation to a communicator and the communicator may interpret it as color. Another issue raised by R.C. is about ethics. T he Code of Ethics that Penelope developed is a f ine statement of the principles that those of us who are listed abide by. Again too, there is the measure that ef f ectiveness in our work determines whether we stay in business. Many of our clients come by word of mouth. If a communicator is not ethical or accurate, the client base will disappear. My skill and that of many others in this work has been developed over years of training, practice, and sharing of inf ormation through writing, teaching and self -examination. T his is demanding work and we continue to grow in skill, clarity, and understanding. Mary Getten answers R.C.: T here is plenty of proof with many thousands of animals and clients that have been helped by communicators. Most communicators work on the telephone. T hey do not see the animal and are not interpreting “body language or animal sounds� as you (R.C.) assert. I am also not a psychic. I cannot predict the f uture, diagnose illness, nor compel any animal to change its behavior. My job is to be a link between the person and the animal – to help them understand each other. I am in ef f ect a translator. T his does not mean that each communicator will translate what that animal has to say in exactly the same way. Human language translators of ten interpret what they hear a bit dif f erently. T he essence is the same, but the way of

expressing it may dif f er. Like a language expert, I studied and practiced to learn this skill. Communicating with animals was not a “gif t” I just woke up with one day. I took my f irst class in 1988 and studied with many teachers f or eight years bef ore I f elt conf ident and had enough proof to do this work prof essionally. T he communicators I know and network with have similar stories. In my work I have been able to help thousands of animals and their people. How do I know this? I get phone calls, e-mails and letters f rom clients every week, telling me about the changes that occurred af ter our consultation, or that the vet conf irmed what I was f eeling. I also call my clients about three weeks af ter a consultation to see how things are going. T his gives me valuable f eedback or “proof ” that I am communicating well with animals. T he point of telepathic communication is to relay inf ormation. What the person does with that inf ormation and how they respond will inf luence what happens. I make suggestions, negotiate with the animal and help them understand each other. I do not claim to be able to “f ix” their problems, although very of ten this is the outcome. Animals are a lot like people. You can ask them to change their behavior and some will be happy to do so. Others will not. Some might want to, but in the end f ail. You (R.C.) relayed a story about your f riend’s dog who said he would not kill another cat, but then did. (See the next article for this story.) Do you have any f riends who said they were going to stop drinking or smoking, but then didn’t? I suspect that the dog’s intentions were good; he just wasn’t able to control himself in the moment. T his is common with all living beings. Animals like people, also change their minds. Our world is f ull of variables. T here is very little that can be proven by the scientif ic method if you require that the results are the same every time. Math is the one science which seems to be constant – 2 plus 2 always equals 4. T here are some laws, such as gravity that appear to be constant as well, but when you bring living beings into the equation, your def inition of scientif ic proof f ails. Let’s look at our medical system. Some would say that we have proof that chemotherapy kills cancer, yet this is of ten not the case. T he same is true of vaccines and any medical procedures. Sometimes they work and sometimes they don’t. Does that mean we should stop using our current medical system until we have proof that it works every time? It does not work a good percentage of the time, yet it is commonly and wholeheartedly accepted. Individuals react and respond dif f erently and there is no scientif ic method that can show that the same result will occur again, under identical circumstances. T here are no identical circumstances when dealing with individuals. Scientif ic researchers can “prove” whatever they set out to prove. T hey start with an assumption and then set out to prove it. Almost any hypotheses can be “proven” according to the scientif ic method. T his proof is based on the law of averages, not that it will happen exactly the same in each incident. T his is acceptable science in the twenty-f irst century. Nothing is 100% in this world we live in - not medicine, not science, not anything that deals with individuals. T he animal communicators I know and respect can all f urnish written and oral proof f rom their clients about the ef f ectiveness of their communication. T he f act that this inf ormation has not been published in a scientif ic journal is irrelevant. photo by Sally Burr Marta Williams to R.C. and other skeptics: I read through your (R.C’s) test and f ind it to be logical and repeatable. T he only problem I see is that it might be somewhat unexciting and theref ore both the psychic and the animal might f atigue

rather quickly. I would set it up dif f erently. Also, there are some problems that can happen in laboratory testing. People being tested can become nervous, get perf ormance anxiety and not do well. And if the tester is very negative, psychics have a hard time perf orming. I am not sure how to compensate f or those two variables, but they have been observed in experiments in this f ield. It is to be expected that many people will be skeptical of the ability to communicate intuitively, through the use of mental projections of thoughts, f eelings, and pictures. T his is something we are taught is impossible. However, within the last f ew decades there has been signif icant research proving that such abilities exist. T here are also many researchers, primarily physicists, who are working to uncover the explanation f or how such abilities might be possible, including Alain Aspect (physicist, University of Paris), David Bohm (physicist, University of London), and Karl Pribram (neurophysiologist, Stanf ord University). T he f act that these researchers have been largely ignored does not negate their work. It simply shows that scientists can be resistant to change and challenging new ideas just like anyone else. It is not f air, as some skeptics claim, to say that there is no proof of intuitive ability. T here is ample proof and these people have painstakingly provided it. Moreover, their experiments were repeatable and verif iable. One of Rupert Sheldrake’s detractors even redid his experiment and got the same statistically signif icant results. Within the f ield of animal communication specif ically, proof comes most of ten in the f orm of anecdotal evidence such as inf ormation the communicator receives f rom the animal that can then be verif ied by the animal’s person. Anecdotal data is used all the time in medical research on people, f or example in studies of painkillers or other such subjective inquiries where peoples’ responses are collected as data. I believe that verif ied anecdotal data f rom animal communicators is just as valid as statistical data, especially when the communicator works at a distance, neither seeing nor interacting with the animal, and when the data is unique and could not have been logically surmised. It is however, critical to verif y and test intuitive data and maintain some objectivity about it. Just because someone f eels something does not mean it is true. T here should be a ‘wait and see attitude’ if the data cannot be immediately verif ied. It is the irony and challenge of working intuitively that one must be nonjudgmental and nonanalytical in order to receive intuitively. Yet judgment and critical thinking are then required to adequately interpret and utilize the intuitive data received. One critique I have of the f ield is that some practitioners, both human psychics and animal communicators, do not treat unproven intuitive data with enough healthy skepticism. Even the best intuitives know they are not always accurate, so there is always that margin of error to be taken into account. However, the overall ef f ectiveness and usef ulness of animal communication is being proven every day by its growing popularity with the consumer. People receive enormous assistance f rom this process. If that were not the case, the f ield would not be expanding as it is. From Carol Gurney

Without a doubt, modern science, with its stringent protocol, has made immense contributions to the health and welf are of our society. Many people depend on science to create the reality in which they live. For instance, my parents would only go to a western physician f or their health care and only do what their physician recommended. For most people this is entirely reasonable. Others have chosen alternative approaches and still others have integrated the two. We have a choice in how we want to pursue our health and ultimately live our lives. Today, science would like us to believe that it is the standard by which reality is validated. However, science and its stringent testing protocol are not inf allible. With improved testing methods, research supplies us with new theories which sometimes contradict existing ones. For many years science claimed that animals could not see color. In The Journal of American Veterinary Medicine Association Scientific Reports: Leading Edge of Medicine—A Review the ability of dogs to distinguish color has been the subject of several studies with of ten conf licting results. Many early behavioral studies indicated either that dogs lacked color vision, or that if they could discriminate hue, it was without importance to dogs; f orm and brightness were more important. Many of these early studies, however, were poorly controlled, and more recent, well-controlled studies have clearly documented that dogs possess and use color. Animal communicators have known that animals do recognize color and respond to it. T hey did not apply scientif ic protocol to discover this and yet they knew and have been working with this color knowledge in spite of and bef ore the latest results of this now accurate scientif ic data. A client whose horse arrived f rom Russia called me to consult on the case. When the owner took the horse to one of the top hospitals in Calif ornia, the veterinarian was very interested in listening to what the horse had communicated. At the end of listening to my tape recorded session, he said that everything the horse communicated could be scientif ically proven through the x-rays and testing the hospital administered. How do we, as animal communicators, obtain this inf ormation without the use of scientif ic testing methods? We use a f orm of telepathy to gather inf ormation about an animal. T he word telepathy is derived f rom the Greek terms tele (“distant”) and pathe (“occurrence” or “f eeling”). Most common telepathy occurs spontaneously in cases of crisis in which a f amily member or f riend has been injured or killed. T he receiver becomes aware through thought f ragments, vague f eelings, dreams, visions or simply knowing that their loved one is in danger or has died. Brain research has shown that telepathy can be induced in the dream state or what is commonly known as the theta state. Electroencephalogram monitoring during this testing also showed that the brain waves of the recipient changed to match those of the sender. It has also been f ound that telepathy is closely connected to emotional states of both the sender and receiver. It is then not so surprising that there is little published scientif ic data to support telepathic communication. Science is based on objective testing, of ten in sterile environments and with no connection between the two subjects being tested. Sometimes the subject is even tested by a random number generating machine. Science prides itself on hard f acts, the opposite of heartf elt f eelings. With this in mind, it would almost appear that science, as a tool f or validating telepathic animal communication is inappropriate. Perhaps we are ready, as a species to live in balance and harmony with our two brains. T he lef t analytical side which strives to explain the world through science and the right intuitive side which chooses to f eel lif e naturally. From Dawn Hayman: T here are two types of knowledge: intellectual, coming f rom the mind, and intuitive, coming f rom the heart. Both types of knowledge are equally valid and important to our understanding of lif e

itself . Neither can exist without the other. When in balance, they enhance one another. T he mental intellect has developed incredibly advanced ways to prove, measure, and determine the validity of many things perceived to be in our physical realm. T he heart intuitiveness determines validity through f eelings, emotions, and understandings that may not be measurable physically. Sometimes we just “know” something to be true because it FEELS true. Sometimes we know something to be true because we can measure it, replicate the outcome, and announce that it is f act. T here are many things about our daily existence that we can not “prove” to be true or “real” yet we all have experienced them. Love is a great example. How can we scientif ically prove that love exists? How can we measure it? Yet, I think it is f air to say that most of us have experienced it and f elt it. Indeed, we see that we actually need love to survive and develop correctly as f unctional human beings. T he f ield of animal communication is based more on the intuitive f orm of knowledge. Just like love, it can be experienced, but not necessarily measured. Animal communication is a counseling prof ession. T hrough telepathic communication, an animal communicator can help people f ind their own connection and communication with their own animals. T he animal communicator is simply a f acilitator in the process. Animals are non-judgmental, trustworthy, and love unconditionally. Can we prove any of those things? Not scientif ically. T hose of us with animals know those statements to be true. Animals connect with us heart to heart. T hrough that heart/intuitive connection, communication takes place. T he “proof ” of this communication can be seen through changes in the animal’s behavior, health, and even changes in their entire human f amily as well. Animal communication is not about f inding out what color the dogs water bowl is or what their f avorite toy looks like. Animal communication is about relationships. It is about the relationship that the animal experiences with other animals, with their human f riends, and with lif e itself . Just as importantly though, it is also about the persons relationship with their own self , with other humans, and with the world. Krishna and Scott I have had much f eedback f rom clients saying that not only did their whole relationship with their animals change af ter a consultation, but they f ound that their human relationships were impacted too. Witnessing peoples lives open up to connecting with their intuitive knowledge has been proof to me that animal communication works in immeasurable ways. Knowledge of the heart can not be measured. It is experienced. To be loved unconditionally and accepted without judgment is one of the most healing things we can experience. To be a f acilitator of this process f or people and their animals is incredibly rewarding and humbling. T he goal f or me, as an animal communicator, is to help people f ind their intuitive connection to their animals, all living things, and the world around them. It is not my goal to have them depend on me f or their answers. In f act, it is not about giving them answers at all, but it is to help them f ind insight. We all have our own answers and our own proof within us. We need to acknowledge that intuitive knowledge within us and connect with our hearts. T hen, what can be measured is the outcome.

T HE T ELEPAT HIC JOURNEY: Opening to the Whole Penelope Smith Order the historic live audio recording based on this article and more here.

While I was teaching a Basic Course in Germany in October 1999, the whole process of opening to telepathic communication and the stages of growth that people travel on this journey f rom separateness to oneness revealed itself in a clear sequence to me. In learning how to communicate with animals, people usually start out f eeling themselves as separate from other species. T hey usually see the animals as apart f rom themselves, in some way objectif ied. T hey f eel that they cannot communicate with animals or only in a very limited way. Direct two-way communication f eels f oreign. T hey use their minds to try and f igure things out about animals instead of directly receiving animals f eelings and thoughts. At this stage, they hope that they can learn how to telepathically communicate with animals but are usually not at all certain about that possibility. As people start to open to telepathic reception they f eel their own blocks, inhibiting structures, restrictions, internal cages, conditioning, pain, and suppressed emotion. At this stage of separateness, they of ten project onto others through their own filters, agendas, and unconscious motives. T hey may be so locked in to their own def ensive patterns and identities that they have a hard time truly f eeling or perceiving anyone or anything, even themselves. As they persist in the desire to communicate and as they practice to get beyond their own barriers, they begin to receive morsels of true telepathic communication f rom animals. Due to inexperience with recognizing how telepathic communication works and f eels f or them, they are usually unsure whether it is the animals thoughts and f eelings that they are receiving or their own projections. By learning to trust their own process and acknowledge the perceptions that they receive, they start to f eel the nature or sensation of true telepathic reception within them as opposed to the manipulation of projection. T hey begin to sense the dif f erence between their own thoughts and f eelings and the animals. T he animals generally happily validate true reception and show by their positive response that the person has indeed understood them. People begin to believe that telepathic communication is really happening f or them, but they have doubts about how well they can do it. Telepathic reception is a connection through both the heart (f eelings) and the mind (thoughts). Our cultures educational system emphasizes mental processes over intuition, thinking over f eeling, head over heart. Of ten, beginning students open f irst to the mental part of telepathy. T hey may more easily receive telepathic communication in the f orm of mental messages or verbal thoughts. T hey may also tend to add their own thoughts to the animals communication as they translate or interpret the mind-to-mind message. As people continue to open, sof ten, f eel, and receive more through their heart and whole body, they get more of the f ull range of telepathic communication f rom animals, including the animals f eelings, emotions, and physical sensations. At this stage they can still easily distort the communication with the addition of their own emotional agendas. However, as they practice the communication process, they learn how to recognize and accept the purity and simplicity of what they get f rom the animals. As they learn to quiet their minds more and f ace the personal blocks or agendas that get in the way of clear telepathic reception, they receive more of the complete and true communication f rom animals. T heir own def enses melt with the assistance of the acceptance, validation, and compassion that the animals invariably communicate. T hey heal themselves as they open to receive more communication. T heir own reception channel gets wider and clearer. As students advance through the guidance of courses and their own practice, they learn repeatedly f rom communication with other species and even their own species that all ways of being, no matter how dif f erent than their own, are okay. As they experience more acceptance of their dark side or previously non-acceptable traits or unowned aspects of being, they move into

more openness and ability to be and f eel the others as ONE, as aspects of SELF. T he deep compassion that the animals have f or us as human beings helps us to learn to accept ourselves as we are. Loving compassion f or others and self grows. T he communication channel becomes more open and reception becomes easier and clearer. It becomes easier to f eel what animals are f eeling and sensing and thinking. T here is less and less artif icial separation. T he distance is bridged. Communion flows into oneness with the animals and deep-felt understanding for all of life. At this stage, people now know with a certainty that telepathic communication is real and they understand more of its complete nature. T hen, an amazing, mind-boggling state begins to be experienced. T he communication and connection expands into the ONE POOL OF OPENNESS WHERE ALL T HOUGHT AND FEELING IS ONE . It doesnt matter who is originating the question or answer. T HE ONE WISDOM IS HEARD AND T HE ONE LOVE IS FELT IN ONES BEING WHICH ENCOMPASSES ALL BEING. As a person relaxes into and can sustain this all-encompassing openness, others around ref lect this and open more to who they really are. On this path of spiritual growth others also ref lect ones restrictions and areas that are crying f or healing and growth and echo them back in thoughts, f eelings, and behavior. So, we appear to attract others of our own and other species who highlight in their own being what we need to work on. T he deepening process of telepathic communication of ten shows us where we are stuck and rattles our cages. It takes continual work on ourselves to become clear and open channels of oneness, peace, and deepest love. Breathe, sof ten, relax, f eel your f eet on the Earth, and connect. Use the means that work f or you to f eel the connection with self and others until it blends more consistently into non-ef f ort into union. T hen all reception, perception, and communication hold more truth and stand more within the soul center or source of love and wisdom. As we learn to celebrate all that we perceive about ourselves and others instead of judging, criticizing, and struggling, we move f rom pain into a place of peacef ul union within and all around. All this is possible on the path of connection that is the telepathic journey with all of Lif e. Let us celebrate into the new millennium this amazing, joyf ul, exciting, adventurous path of awakening that our sisters and brothers of other species open to us!
