Telepathic communication can manifest in many ways. Animals can send visual images, feelings, thoughts, ideas and sensations as communications. Sometimes these communications have words; sometimes they are just accompanied by a strong sense of how they fit together to form the communication. Animals are capable of communicating very complicated and deep ideas and feelings, and many communicate with great elegance.
There are immense rewards and excitement in communing intimately with the other species that share our planet. Their insights show a beauty, depth, and generosity to their natures far beyond what most humans are conditioned to believe is possible.
Telepathic communication is a natural ability for all beings. Although many humans have lost touch with this ability, there are some words in our language that relate to animal communication, such as “intuition” and “telepathy”, and we can use them as a starting point in describing what animal communication is and how it works. The dictionary definition of intuition is “the ability to perceive or learn things without conscious reasoning.” At some time all of us have had experiences of intuition; we “just know” something without knowing how we know; but we feel confident that what we know is true, and results or circumstances later confirm this perception. Dictionary definitions of telepathy include “feeling at a distance,” “communication by means other than the normal sensory channels,” and “transference of thought.”
Animal communication includes elements of all these definitions. It takes place without conscious reasoning and by means other than the normal sensory channels; it involves feeling at a distance and can involve transference of thought. In order for animal communication to take place one has to bypass the rational, linear mind. This is done by quieting the mind, allowing it to become as still and empty of thought and everyday “mind chatter” as possible.
