Without even realizing it, I have been telepathically communicating with animals (and other Beings) since I was a wee, little girl.
One of my very first childhood memories is of playing with the ‘puppies under my bed.’
These were ‘Spirit’ puppies, as at the time we lived in an apartment and hadn’t any pets.
And no, I wasn’t dropped on my head at birth.
I asked my Mother…
When my Father bought me an oil paint set one Christmas when I was around 10 years old, I was thrilled and immediately began painting animal portraits. (something I continued for over 35 years.)
I always connected on a very deep level with my subjects, asking them ‘how’ they wanted to be portrayed in their portrait.
I knew that not all Doberman’s wanted to be immortalized in a portrait as fierce and not all Poodles want to look ‘fussy’…
So I would always ask!
But I didn’t realize what I was doing was termed, ‘Animal Communication.’ I just always took for granted my deep connection to animals.
So much so, that when my most beloved GSD Heart Dog, ‘Shane’ was diagnosed with a terminal illness in 2002, and my hubby bought me private lessons in a basic ‘Animal Communication course, again, I was thrilled!
After sailing through the course with my trainer in a few days, I asked what we would do in level 2. She answered with a laugh and said “Aileen! You’ve already passed the advanced level! There’s nothing more I can teach you, just keep doing what you’re doing!”
So I have been…
For me, it’s something I’ve been doing my whole life.
When asked to ‘label’ exactly how I receive my information, many times I just ‘know’ what the animal is saying which is called, Claircognizance, (clear-knowing) along with strong ‘feelings’ Clairsentience (clear-feeling). I’m also ‘shown’ pictures, Clairvoyance, (clear-seeing). Sometimes I’ll ‘hear’ words, Clairalience, (clear-hearing) and every once in a while, (still, more often than I appreciate), I’ll ‘taste’ things in my mouth Clairgustance, (clear-tasting) which really isn’t pleasant when a pet has me experience his favourite dish and it happens to be raw chicken.
Any way I receive information, I’m always very grateful for a most enlightening experience.
The minds of our wonderful animal friends never cease to amaze me.
