"It seems that most stories about animal communication relate conversations with cats, dogs, or horses. I’ve also heard that cats are more difficult to communicate with than horses and dogs. Is that true? Is it easier to communicate with mammals than with other species? Is communication with birds, fish and insects quite different?  What about microorganisms? How easy/difficult is it to communicate with those life forms?  Should different techniques be used with different species?”

    Each species has a set of unique traits as does every individual within that species. For this reason, the flavor and experience of speaking to different species will be different. How easy or hard it is to speak to a particular species has to do with the individual animal communicator’s personal resonance with that particular species.

    Thank you for your excellent question. I appreciate the responses of my colleagues here, as well.

    In my experience, there is no difference in “how” I communicate with individuals of various species–telepathic communication is communication from the heart, and it “works” the same way no matter what form or forms the being inhabits. I have also found no difference in the potential depth of communication between species, although obviously individuals will have different priorities of topics that they may wish to communicate about. I have received deep and profound communication from tiny insects as well as from whales…from small kittens to massive horses. I’ve also experienced as wide, or wider, a range of individual personalities in animals as in humans–shy, funny, wise, silly, arrogant, curmudgeonly, courageous…each is unique. Because of this, there are individual differences in communication style, subject matter, and awareness. It is important not to limit our communication by pre-conceived human notions such as “this dog species is always playful” or “horses see the world this way”, or “all dogs need to know who is alpha”, or whatever the particular human-generated idea may be.

    I have found that my human perspective can be greatly expanded by perceiving the world and opening to deep, heart-full communication from animals with whom I may not have had much experience in my daily life. For example, I have been stunned by the beauty and deep wisdom of the wild tarantulas that I encounter here in the mountains of Arizona, and they have opened me to a whole new awareness of their wisdom and their world that I had never experienced before. I’ve experienced the same kind of thing when talking with both individuals and over-souls of other species with whom I have had little physical or personal contact. It is always a fascinating journey of revelation when I open my heart and telepathic senses and allow the animals to teach me.

    Blessings on your journey of communion with all life!

    Hi, Anon,

    While I have never found it necessary to use different techniques for different species, I do know that if I am afraid of the physical form, my fear can become a block to receiving information.

    When I communicate telepathically I often have a visual image of the being within six inches of my face. This is just how my mind works. So I had to ask myself one day, will I be comfortable to have a pet tarantula so close to me?

    I was asked to speak with just such a being who was the companion of a young boy. His mother requested the session because the family felt that the arachnid was preparing to leave her body.

    I bravely checked in with myself and decided to do the session. It turned out to be a great gift for me, as well as for the family, because the energy of this spider was so motherly and nurturing, which totally surprised me.

    I also had some students tell me that speaking with the snake who participated in the Online Practice Group I ran last summer was difficult for them because of their fear of snakes. Meanwhile, someone else in the group had an amazing conversation. She later told me that she really enjoys snake energy.

    I do think that we humans have all kinds of limiting beliefs and fears that need to be cleared. Sometimes speaking with a being in a particular physical form helps us identify that limitation, and sometimes they even help us move through it. But the form itself, in my experience, is not the barrier. Rather the limitation is inside us. When we clear the barrier we are holding, the communication flows.

    Hello, and thank you for asking your question.

    It raises the important issue is distinguishing between “behavioral” communication with animals’ physical cues and culturally specific differences between species and “telepathic” communication with animals. In the former, it’s those differences amongst species that are the heart of our learning. In telepathic communication, however, it’s actually important to completely put aside our knowledge of species specific information–for a temporary period of time during our conversations–so we don’t use it to consciously or unconscsiously color what we receive from an individual animal. The heart of respectful telepathic communication with any animal is to approach every single conversation with any animal as an individual–without any preconceptions of what they “might” say because of their species, or how smart they “should” (or shouldn’t) be because of their breed, or what they are “likey” to say because they are a horse, or a whale, or a dog. When we want to know how an individual animal feels about something, or their thoughts about an issue, their body, breed and species doesn’t matter. What matters is that we listen openly without preconceptions.

    If I were a dog trainer, it would surely be important that I know the difference between the temperaments and typical behaviors, anatomy, and natural history of the breed I would be working with. Keeping those things in mind would help me train the dog. But if I want to have a conversation with an individual dog, cat, bird, gopher, snake, horse, bee,etc their physical characteristics and all we know about their species or breed is completely irrelevant to learning how they feel or what they are thinking. Of course, when attempting to resolve problems with any animal, it helps to know as much as possible about their physical needs and species specific behavior. But when we TALK with them, all that matters is that we open our hearts with love and listen, without expectation.

    When I talk with wild animals, if the individual is in front of me, such as whale in the water, or a fox in my back yard, I speak directly to the individual I can see. If however, I want to talk with the bats I see at night and there is an entire group, or a client wants me to talk with the termites eating away at their home, I then ask for a representative from that species to come forth. And sometimes, I will connect with the Overlighting Deva of that species to hold the conversation.

    To summarize: My advice is not to let species color what you expect to hear and receive or it will, and the messages you hear will then be filtered by that. Enter each conversation with deep respect, regard and love for the animal, and allow whatever it is they want to share with you to come forth. Species matters for physical issues, but when it comes to the heart and the desire to be understood, species doesn’t matter at all.

    Blessings to you in your communications!

    Hi Anonymous,

    These are all very good questions. Thank you for asking.

    I am asked to consult mainly with dogs, cats and horses because these are the types of animals that most of us have in our daily lives. However, I find that a lot of our children and young adults are prefering to have small pets (lizards, snakes, turtles). I have also had opportunities to communicate with animals at zoos, aquariums, sanctuaries and in the wild.

    Each communication is unique, just like each animal is unique. Each animal has their own personality and energy. They are open and honest when they communicate. However, some choose to communicate using words, images, feelings, tastes, smells or a combination, thereof. I have never had an instance where an animal wouldn’t communicate with me. Most enjoy having the opportunity to share with us.

    For animals that live in colonies (insects, bees) there is usually a “spokesperson” that is selected to communicate on behalf of the collective. However, they can all communicate as individuals if asked.

    I have found that talking with any animal is the same, although different animals may respond differently. It’s no different from people really – some folks are naturally chatty, some are shy, some are defensive. I haven’t found differences in species to species but just in the personalities of the various animals. One dog bit me (psychically) while another said “Why are you asking me questions?” and still another pranced while she showed me all around her house.

    Hi Anon,
    Interesting question. I have found that with all species, the first thing I feel is an opening of my heart and I am flooded with love for that particular being. This is the same for species.

    I don’t find cats easier than dogs or vice versa. The energy – frequency is different, but once a communicator opens up to that frequency, the communication flows. As Betty Lewis stated above, I have also found it easier to communicate with the Overlighting Deva of insects. The only exception to this has been bees. In the past, I was able to feel a real connection to an individual bee, but the conversation was very short. This, of course, may change as my “Self” evolves. (Doesn’t read grammatically correct, but I’m sure you get what I mean.)

    I also find a difference in fish; not that the communication is any less intense or enlightening, just a different feeling to it.

    As for my methods of communication, that doesn’t change for any species, plants and trees included. But, again, my journey is fluid and may change or not as I evolve.

    Hi Anon,

    Most stories seem to be with our pet animals because they are generally closer to us, and more in our consciousness than other species. However, communicating with all species involves the same pathways and techniques.

    I have found more individual differences between dogs & cats…not that one species is easier or harder to talk to. That being said, I have also found that, as a species, horses *do* seem to be mostly willing to talk to me. On the other extreme, African Grey Parrots seem to take longer to open up and trust than other bird species.

    As to colony type animals such as insects and microorganisms, it’s been more helpful for me to talk to the ‘head’ entity, often called the Overlighting Deva. I found that talking to an individual insect was very fleeting (or, LOL, is that ‘fleating’? Forgive the pun!) Anyway, the conversation didn’t last very long, and if I was asking a favor, like “please don’t bite me”, it only was a pact with that one insect and not the whole group who inhabit my property.

    Hope this helps answer your questions.
