What are the reasons it can be so difficult to communicate with our own animals?

Beth Sabor asks:

Why, when we communicate with the animals in our own home, do we sometimes have an easier time "reading" the energy rather than having a two way communication?

As a professional communicator, I know that one of the answers to this question is that, on some level, we hold an attachment to the outcome.

Are there other "reasons?"

Also, what can we do to shift this energy so that we may easily and readily communicate with our own animals?

    We are in a synchronistic learning process so it is not easy to step outside at times. If we are in the middle of learning something held in the gems of both the animal and person’s heart, we may not have the necessary clarity until later.

    Hi Beth,

    I have to echo what Nedda has offered regarding what our companions may not want to share directly with us and how we often want to “fix” things. When I think of what I would have told my human “Mom”, I feel blessed that my companions have shared so much directly with me, and indirectly through my best friend who is also a communicator. She’s often been the “messenger” of difficult information for me to process, that I needed to hear, and was very beneficial for our growth on our journey together.

    My 16 yr old cat just went through a health crisis and I was all gung ho with holistic remedies. When my friend called to see how he was doing, she got from him that he did not want to take the remedies at this time. He just wanted time to heal on his own and integrate everything. I was very upset at first about this, reluctant and afraid to stop the remedies because I was seeing so much benefit, however, honored his request…after all, it’s his body and journey. He improved daily on his own. 🙂



  3. Hello Beth, Great questions and ask Needa has already commented, sometimes I go into the situation with my animals with the attitude of wanting to FIX this. Sometimes i’ve got the mind set of “Gosh darn it this should be happening! I’m an Animal Communicator what the HECK is goin’ on here!” I usually really have a good laugh at myself when I have THAT rolling into my head! The bottom line for me is that I am just too invested in the answer I THINK I’m going to hear, notice I said THINK. So I try to detach myself from as much as I can from what they are saying (meditation helps, clearing my chakras especially the 3rd and 4th sometimes help).
    Doing a session with my animal a half an hour or so after whatever it is has happened, is good because then I take a step back and regroup. AND sometime calling my fellow Animal Communicator friends and asking for help is also a great tool because the animal usually sees them like Switzerland….”Neutral” and will also talk to them easier than to me.
    Hope something here helps.

    With Joy

    Dear Beth,

    In my own animal family, I know that there are times when my animals won’t speak to me about what is going on for them. If they are angry or upset, they may just be feeling less communicative.

    I tend to want to “fix things” right away when something is going on, but the animal may not want me to fix anything. The animal may just want some quiet space to allow their own feelings to simmer or to find an outlet that doesn’t involve me knowing how they are feeling. Not everyone wants to talk about feelings all the time. I find that I need to remember that each animal is an individual and that I have to honor that individual’s process.

    I have, at times, called upon a colleague to speak with one of my animal family when the animal was non-communicative. In one instance, the animal said, “I really don’t want to upset Nedda. I just want to work this out on my own. There is nothing for Nedda to do here except be patient and loving.” That’s a tough one for me, so my animal friend didn’t even want to say it directly. She assumed that if I heard the message from a colleague, it would get through to me more effectively. She was correct.
