Animal Communication – especially when performed over distance – may seem a little too good to be true! Here are some frequently asked questions and answers which prospective clients may find useful.
1. How do animals communicate?
Animals communicate with each other (and humans) using a combination of body language, emotions and unconscious imagery. Humans have the ability to do this too, but to a large extent we have forgotten how to use these skills. An Animal Communicator is able to communicate telepathically, i.e. pick up and interpret the emotions and images the animal shares. Thus a communication session is possible even over vast geographical distance. This is a skill some people are born with, but any human can learn!
2. So does my animal speak English?
No. Although animals do learn to recognize certain words, what they really respond to is the image your unconscious mind holds before your mind turns image/concept into words. English (or any spoken language) is just another set of symbols. Every word is a symbol representing a concept, and the unconscious mind works purely in symbols. Thus when the Communicator conveys your animal’s responses in English, she is merely acting as a translator (from the animal’s unconscious imagery, to her unconscious mind’s ability to translate those concepts to words).
3. Why can’t I talk to my animal?
You can! Animals pick up on our emotions and unconscious thoughts even when we aren’t conscious of this process. This is one of the reasons animals often react to their humans’ experiencing increased anxiety, sadness, etc.
Animal Communication is a skill anybody can learn. (Find out more about Moonshadow’s Animal Communication Distance Learning Course.)
4. Can you diagnose or fix a medical problem?
Moonshadow’s Animal Communicator is not a doctor or vet, and therefore will never diagnose. She is able to pick up the sensations (pain, discomfort, etc) an animal feels, and will certainly share that with the human client. However, this is not a substitute for treatment by a qualified vet. If your animal is sick or injured, they should get medical care.
5. My animal is ill/injured, but I want to avoid going to a vet. Can you help?
No. As mentioned above, Animal Communication is NOT a substitute for medical care. If your animal is nervous of the vet (or outings in general) a Communication session can help prepare them for a visit to a vet. However, expecting a communication session to fix an illness or injury is a bit like expecting a psychologist to fix a broken leg or malfunctioning kidney!
6. Will my animal do as you say?
An Animal Communication session is much like a visit to a psychologist. The communicator can make suggestions, and even negotiate solutions to problems, but it will ultimately be up to the animal whether they agree with and follow these suggestions. Certain behaviour is a natural part of an animal’s social behavior (territory marking, hierarchy etc), and is unlikely to change.
7. Do you track missing animals?
No. Our focus is exclusively on the psychological aspect of Animal Communication, i.e. working with emotional and behavioral problems.
8. Will one session be enough?
That depends very much on the animal and the issues being addressed. Usually one session will give the human client enough information to work with. In some cases, follow-up sessions are necessary.
9. I have several animals, and they have issues with each other. Can you help? Do I have to book a full session for each animal?
Yes, we offer “group sessions” (much like “group counseling") where a household has several animals. You will need to book an hour session with an additional cost per additional animal.
10. My animal needs behaviour modification. Will you tell my animal how to behave?
“Problem behaviour” generally falls into two categories. The first is perfectly natural behaviour that simply isn’t convenient for humans (e.g. cats sharpening claws to mark territory), and these types of behaviour are usually there to stay. A communication session can sometimes help if the animal is willing to use alternative ways to display their normal social behaviour (e.g. using a scratch post).
The second category of “problem behaviour” involves animals “acting out” because they are frustrated, confused, unhappy or anxious. In these cases, a communication session can be tremendously beneficial. However, it’s not as simple as telling the animal to stop doing ‘naughty’ things. A communication session should shed light on the cause of the animal’s behaviour (e.g. why they feel confused/stressed/etc), and how things can change to help them feel more secure. Once they feel secure, the problem behaviour will almost certainly cease. However, this usually requires a bit of work from the humans in the household too, and animals with severe emotional issues may need several communication sessions to “counsel” them through their healing process.
11. What info do you need? Why?
When booking a Communication Consultation, you will be asked to fill in your own details as well as plenty of details about the animal. We ask for detailed information regarding past and present medical problems and treatment, as well as past and present behavioural issues. This is helpful during the conversation for several reasons: If an animal refers to an injury that you are already aware of, we know that it isn’t necessary to focus in too much detail on the problem. That way the conversation can continue focusing on problems you may not yet be aware of. Current medication is important because animals often mention sensations which turn out to be side-effects of or sensitivity to their medication. Here again, if we know what to expect, we know not to worry too much about the cause of the sensation. Likewise, medication can have a strong impact on the animal’s aura and energy system, so if a major energy imbalance becomes apparent during the conversation, it helps to know whether the cause could be medication, or whether one should look for other possible causes.
The behavioural history is equally significant as there is often a pattern to be found here. E.g. an animal may “act out” whenever a certain emotional trigger is present (such as their humans going away, moving house, a change in routine). Once again, having as much information as possible helps to keep the conversation focused on the present issues, while giving us enough information to understand where to look for patterns and triggers.
Animals often request a change of routine (more attention, different feeding times etc) so it is also helpful to know which parts of the routine are negotiable for the humans involved.
12. I want to make a booking. How does it work?
