Animal communication stimulates our capacity to perceive the thoughts, emotions and physical sensations of an animal. This capacity is intangible because it depends on our extrasensory senses: those of clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, clear olfactory, and clear knowledge. Animal communication is a different language than the one we usually use for verbal communication. It is our very first language, the one we have before the use of words.
Our usual way of communicating is first to perceive, then to decode our perceptions and finally to express them with words. What we perceive in the world around us and what we experience is tangible as this perception is felt through our senses. This is what I call the first language.
Animal communication functions on the basis of this first language.
It works thanks to empathy and through telepathy. I believe that it is this first language that allows species to communicate with each other or with members of different species including humans.
How can we reconnect with this language that we have lost?
I think that first of all we must be aware of the existence of this first language, to discover it in one’s self, then develop and refine it, polishing it like a diamond that we cut after removing the gangue. Thus, once polished, it can better express those subtle elements that we have perceived.
The Rough Diamond
This language is conveyed to us through words, thoughts, images, emotional or physical sensations (the five senses) and the sensation of knowing, truly knowing deep in oneself. We might therefore ask why, when a coyote is about to eat a cat, the predator does not communicate with his prey. The reason is that even if the first language exists, instinct is foremost and one cannot go against it. The coyote needs to eat by instinct and will not communicate with the cat and excuse itself for eating it. It is true that there are some cases when species that are not supposed to cohabit do live together, but that only happens rarely. For example there is the well-known story of a bear, a tiger and a lion that you can see on the web. These animals when rescued very young were placed in a refuge and became inseparable. I have also witnessed the friendship between a lynx and a fox as well as the close ties between a lynx and a doe at my friend Marie Noelle Baroni’s place where she looks after wild animals.
When all the beings on Earth and especially we humans will have evolved to a higher consciousness, there will no longer be a need to eat each other!
How can we polish the diamond?
First we have to learn how to concentrate on one particular thought.
I don’t request that we should empty our spirit since we cannot stop the flow of our thoughts. It just does not work! The reason this is impossible is because our thoughts are a continuous flow. The only thing we can do is to become aware of this flow and avoid becoming attached to it; in other words, not to fix on what this uninterrupted flow recounts.
During animal communication the first important moment of awareness is to realize that our thoughts will continue to flow.
The second equally important moment is when we understand that we are not obliged to think of this uninterrupted flow as the truth. The thoughts are there, somewhat like a noisy child that disturbs you, but we are not obliged to believe them or to linger on them.
These two phases are important which is why I call them conscious communication.
I believe that in order to polish the diamond, we must first be aware of how we human beings function: we can lower the sound of our interior conversation, those uninterrupted thoughts which lead us astray and prevent us from concentrating; it is as if we were lost in a thick forest. We must also be conscious of the continuing narration that is always present in our spirit: reliving the daily news, criticizing and judging others, or just describing what we are doing.
We talk to ourselves all day long and we cannot stop this mental activity. For example: “Have I done all my shopping? Have I fed the dog? I must call so and so on the phone. I should have done this, I should have done that…”etc. All this makes for a lot of noise and prevents us from perceiving the elements of animal communication.
Once we become aware of this flow and manage to guide it, our consciousness can then receive the authentic information.
Many people who communicate explain that animals communicate mostly with images; however, I believe that animals communicate with all their senses just as we do. All the extra-sensory capacities of the person communicating can be developed. There is no one perception that is better than another; each forms a part of the possible variety of choices. When starting, each person should recognize and develop his or her best tool, and later develop the remaining extra-sensory perceptions.
