Animal Communication

by Diana Rankin on May 7, 2017

So you say your dog just looks at you with trusting eyes while ignoring the ball you just tossed; your cat turns up a tail and walks away; and your horse steps back, tosses her head, and neighs as if to say, “Nope, I don’t want to play with you today. Is that really what the horse is saying? Doesn’t the dog know to run for the ball? Why doesn’t the cat like me?

You’re scratching your head trying to figure it all out. Although each animal is different, and like humans, communicate in their own ways, also like humans, there are a few commonalities when it comes to how animals communicate.  Here is a bit of information that might help you to have better communication with an animal.

We humans must first learn that animals do understand our human language although they may at times choose to ignore us, especially if we ask them to do something they don’t want to do. They understand body language, tone of voice, and our energy. We, however, need to remember communication goes both ways. To better communicate with animals, we need to learn their language.

During my human clients’ readings, I’m often asked to also read their pets. Some animal communicators prefer to see the animal or at least a photo but I don’t require that. That’s good because many of my clients live hundreds and thousands of miles from me. So what am I reading? I’m reading the pet’s energy and also having a conversation with that animal. I also have help from the spirit world. In addition to working with Phillip, my spirit guide, I also work with Philipe, a guide I use specifically when working with animals.

In English I’ll talk to the animal, asking Philipe to translate. I’ll ask the 4-legged kid a few questions, depending on the information the parent wants to know.

If the parent just wants to know how the pet is doing, that’s what I’ll ask. I’ve had dogs tell me they are lonely, cats tell me they resent a new kitten in the house; horses tell me they like their new stall, and so on. We can ask this of our own pets but we have to be ready to step back and hear what they are telling us. This is sometimes hard to do because we’re emotionally attached. I often trade readings with another animal communicator, especially if one of my kids is sick.

Usually we can pick up if our 4-legged ones are sick, but we can’t always pick up how sick or what’s the best course of healing. Animals have a different concept of death than we do. I’ve found they may stay for longer than they would desire just to help out their human. When I’m reading for an animal, I ask it to show me what hurts or what doesn’t feel right. Their answers come in either words or I’m shown a place on the body.

Animals often know what needs to be done for their healing. If I ask a 4-legged kid if a trip to the vet is in order, the response will be yes or no depending on how they like the car ride and a trip to the vet. So, a better question is, “Will it help you get better faster if your human takes you to the vet?”

Lost pets are the hardest to work with. My first question is to ask why they left. I want to make sure the pet was never abused and was happy in this home.

In all the years I’ve been doing this, I’ve only had a couple lost pets tell me they wanted to run away. In one case, the animal was lonely because her human had died; another felt left out when two new animals were introduced into the home; another was trying to find her puppies that had been adopted. Mostly they say they went exploring or they wanted to see what was over there. On occasion, I’ve see where someone kidnapped a pet. These are the hardest to get back home, but we have had a few successes.

The next question I ask the lost 4-legged kids is to turn their head and let me see what they see. I look for street signs, familiar locations, or anything that can help identify where they are. Animals can’t read street signs, but if they show me one, I can. That’s rare, however. Usually, I see fields or houses or woods, places a bit harder to pin down. I also ask the animal to listen to all the sounds. This helps me pick up what may be near—a train, an airport, a major highway, etc.

Again, working with another animal communicator is helpful here. One example was a California client whose Sheltie got out when a workman left the gate open. The humans, who took very good care of this little one, were frantic.

I gave them the information I got, and then ask a friend, who is also an animal communicator, to meet me on the campus of the university in a nearby town. I didn’t know why we needed to meet there, but that seemed important. It would turn out to be so.

As we worked together, we both received different pieces of the puzzle, as well puzzle pieces that confirmed what the other was receiving. The little one had wandered off and gotten lost and now didn’t know how to get back home. Where she was had something to do with agriculture and medicine but what, wasn’t clear. Neither of us felt she could find her way home so we kept telling her to find a two-legged one she could trust to help her find her way.

As it turned out, she was on the campus of UC Davis, an agriculture university. And she was found by an animal science major.

The most important ingredients to improving communication with a 4-legged one is patience. Add to that a desire to listen from the heart in the language you both speak—love.
