Daena Sethna, a client in Mumbai, India, hosted me for the month of January 2016. She had been so moved by the work I had done with her dog Gypsy over the prior two years that she wanted to share the experience with her friends, family, and community. So she flew me to Mumbai and I spent a month there teaching courses, doing private in-person consultations, and pro-bono work for two street dog rescues and an animal sanctuary. It was an incredible experience for everyone—for Daena, the animals, their people, my students, and for me too. [Read more…]
Animals feel me telepathically communicate with them.
The hardest thing for people to “get” about telepathy is that animals know that it is happening and are fully participating.
There are moments in sessions when this is obvious, and my human client jumps in the conversation to share.
A client in Washington State with 2 cats and a dog had an a-ha moment when she realized her cats animals knew . After the first 10 minutes of translating what her dog, Simon, had to say, Trinity, her female cat said, “Now it is my turn to share.” The woman chuckled and said, “Trinity has been looking out the window the whole time, but just as you said translated this for her, she turned to look at me with such intensity.”
Sometimes, an animal physically demonstrates the emotions they are going through while sharing their story telepathically.
A dog, Bradley, in Tucson, Arizona began the session sharing what a strong, proud, happy and noble fellow he is and all the specific things he loves about his life. Then his person asked why he barks at men, and Bradley showed me his life as a puppy in another home, and a man with a loud voice scaring him and hitting him with objects. His person jumped in and said, “my god Sharon, he has been sitting here on the sofa with me seeming so happy since the beginning of the session, but now as he is telling you this he is trembling.”
Other times, an animal goes out of his way to show his human that he REALLY MEANS the thing he is saying via Sharon, the translator.
A woman in Pennsylvania who has several cats of her own but also fosters was having issues with two of her cats. Connecting with each one, the answer was, “the new foster is stressing me out; please don’t bring any more fosters in the house.” She has a wise older orange tabby named Dillon, who I could feel butting into the conversation several times during the session saying, “I have something important to say about this.” At the end of the session Dillon expressed his concern how her life is changing, and fostering cats is no longer supportive to her. And, Dillon explained, all the other cats in the house felt the stress of her transition, which she was having a hard time admitting to herself. Dillon was very insistent on the importance of this message, and when I shared this to my client, she said, “Oh I get it. He won’t leave me alone. I was sitting in one room, and he came up and stared straight at me. I got up to go to the other room and he followed me and is still staring at me, as if to say, ‘this is really important, are you getting it loud and clear? No more fosters.”
“But my dog just looks like he is sleeping. How can he be communicating with you?”
Most often, however, animals rest there lying on the sofa or floor next to their people, seemingly taking a nap. But they are not napping. They are deeply involved in the telepathic conversation, actually focusing, using all of their energy to receive and send feelings, thoughts, and images to me telepathically which I translate for their human.
A client in Florida, Angela, said she noticed her dog Bentley goes into a deeper state of relaxation when I communicate with him. She was so fascinated with this that in the next session when I connected with her horse, Casa, she went to the stable to watch his reactions during the session. Just like with Bentley, Casa relaxed. He lowered his head and dropped his lower lip—a telltale horse sign of deep peacefulness. And to prove this further, I had to pause the session for 3 minutes about half-way through to ask the landscaper outside my office if he could resume his noisy work after my session. At that exact moment, Angela said Casa lifted his head and his lip, and turned toward his hay and began munching. He felt my brief absence and decided to take a short break too!
How is it that humans have forgotten how to telepathically communicate?
You may wonder, “how is it possible that there is a conversation happening in concepts and images and feelings and knowings, in real time, and the simplest of animals are able to participate in this, but we humans have lost this capacity?”
I agree, it is huge to fathom. It opens up all kinds of questions about the true nature of communication and the fabric of life itself.
But if you put the cosmic questions aside for a moment, and just look at your own life experience, you can probably remember moments when you have had knowings and feelings come to you from some silent place inside. And later you understood it was your own intuition, or the feelings of someone you love pulling on you, and the situation made total sense.
We humans are animals too, held and connected in the larger fabric of life. But we get so locked into the predictable world that our logical minds carve out for us, and we really believe that is all there is and we understand everything.
We don’t understand everything.
And doesn’t it just put us in our place, or show us something about our own arrogance as a species, that our sweet dog or cat or horse or bird, and the coyotes or squirrels in our backyard, understand so much more about telepathic communication than we do.
My work is just as effective communicating with wild animals as with companion or domesticated animals.
- A flock of pigeons who had set up a nesting headquarters on an apartment balcony in Japan left the day after I communicated with them.
- A family of javelinas bedded down in the backyard of a Sedona client’s home for 3 long months left the day I communicated with them.
- A single rat who took up residence in my client’s Houston office space for several weeks was never seen again after two short sessions.
- A hawk who was picking off my Sedona client’s free-roaming chickens flew away and never came back the day I communicated with him.
- A colony of ants who were marching single file across my client’s house in Washington State turned around and went back outside the day after I communicated with them.
In every case, after a telepathic communication session, the wild animals honored the human’s request and left. They all had their stories for why they had moved into human territory. And while some were more stubborn than others, they all realized they were in the wrong space and left right after I communicated with them.
It’s really amazing, no? You can imagine why a person’s dog or cat or horse would respond to telepathic communication and change. They get food from us or approval. But wild animals? Their motivation to cooperate with a human asking for a favor is not as obvious.
The fascinating part for me is feeling their consciousness—it is different. To me it feels more silent, more expansive, and more still than the companion animals I most often connect with. It’s as if I can feel the spaciousness of the natural world that they rest on. That’s a whole topic there …
So how do I get wild animals to understand and cooperate?
The short answer? . This is what I am really skilled in—what I do in consultations and teach in my courses. The story “Jen and the Hawk” is especially interesting and illustrates this well.
Jen and the Hawk
Jen Marie, owner of Chocolatree, a local raw foods restaurant, is one of my favorite local clients in Sedona. She has a home out on a hillside with all kinds of animals—chickens, goats, ducks, dogs, pigs, and even wild animals who make frequent appearances on her land.
She hired me a while back to help solve a problem for her chickens. They are free-roaming chickens with an open pen, and several of the animals on her property had decided a chicken might make a nice snack every now and then.
One of these animals was a hawk who had become a daily visitor for about a month. He had been hanging out up in a tree and “helping himself to the buffet,” as Jen put it.
Jen understands that we are all part of the food chain, and though she herself is a vegetarian, she respects these laws of Nature and sees them as sacred.
Nonetheless, she wanted to create an oasis from this on her property; a place where all the animals could live in harmony and get to know each other as fellow beings across species lines, apart from the food chain.
In the session I connected telepathically with this hawk Jen had seen on her land. At first I could feel the hawk’s surprise. He sent the feeling, “A human? Telepathing with me? This is strange.”
But after a minute or so he showed a curiosity to hear what I had to say. So I asked him, “Would you be willing to find your food somewhere else?”
In response, he sent the thought that he doesn’t see any reason he should cooperate with us. He specifically sent, “I will do what I need to do.”
I responded, “Well, it could be dangerous for you. Humans are very clever and will set traps and such, it could be lethal for you. Jen and her husband Kelly are peaceful people, but they might not continue this approach if you keep killing their chickens. They would prefer to respect you and ask you to stop peacefully. They kindly ask you to stop eating their chickens.”
He seemed nonplussed. He sent the thought, “they are there, I am going to eat them.”
So I continued with another approach, “What about the mice and other birds? You need to do your part to keep things balanced in Nature. Jen’s birds are not part of the wild web of life—your world. They belong to humans and live in civilization—this is a separate world from you and the rules are different. The food chain rules don’t apply here. These chickens are her friends.”
He was listening. I could feel him taking in what I was saying.
I continued, “These chickens can’t fight back or protect themselves as prey animals in your world can. I am trying to appeal to your sense of fairness and order as an animal who is a predator in the web of life. You have an important role in the realm of Nature, and by eating Jen’s chickens you are stepping outside of where you are meant to be.”
Then I could feel something click in him. It was as if he got it, he realized this situation is something else, something outside of his world.
I told Jen, “He is considering this.” Then Jen said, “We are happy to put out an offering of seeds or anything if that will help, but we will protect our homestead.”
He responded by sending me the thought, “No there is no need for that. It is a kind offer, but I prefer chickens, I prefer to eat meat. That’s my job. It is my job to cull the weak.” A moment later, he showed me his new awareness, it was something like, “Oh ok, these chickens are not weak and stupid, they are part of some other organization or system that I do not quite understand. They are not mine to eat.”
It was as if the hawk had had an epiphany and he realized the inappropriateness of his actions now.
I then asked him, “Mr. Hawk what would you need to just fly away and hunt animals in the web of life?”
He responded with an image of him flying away.
I told Jen, “Something in him has shifted.”
She shared with me a few months later that they never saw that hawk, or any hawk, again after the day we communicated.
