I was recently watching a TV show featuring Cesar Millan, the “Dog Whisperer.” He was working with an animal communicator who was able to read her dog, but could not “talk” to him – at least not in ways the dog understood!
Watching the program, I was struck by behaviors displayed by the pet psychic that I have seen quite often in other walks of life. We humans want everyone and everything to understand and accept what we say, from our perspective. In psychology we call this “being egocentric”, and it is a developmental stage common in a two year old.
You have to laugh, no?
Animal communicators can understand what animals say, however do not assume they have the skill to then talk to the animals in ways that have meaning for them. The same principle applies to psychics and mediums reading humans.
The greatest problem in communication is the illusion that it has been accomplished ~ George Bernard Shaw
For example, a Western reader can probably do a decent psychic reading for someone who only speaks Farsi (the most widely spoken Persian language). But the psychic will most likely not be able to communicate in a meaningful fashion to that person, because, firstly, the reader doesn’t speak Farsi.
Secondly, without understanding the culture, the Western reader will not be able to sufficiently address the priorities that dominate the subject’s cultural paradigm. Therefore the message becomes irrelevant and even meaningless to the person.
So, while understanding a horse, cat, dog, snake is vital, we also then need to know what is important to the individual animal and we need to know what is important to the species. We also need to be able to speak their language. It is a different skill to be able use the animal’s chosen language of communication, not ours.
In addition, when doing animal readings, the humans involved have to be read as well. Each person and animal (fur, feather, scale, and even hairless) adds in energy to all the interactions. Like family therapy, pet ownership is a system of relationships. It is never just the problem of the pet, unless it is a medical condition.
When consulting an animal psychic, you want to make sure that the person knows how to translate information into the perspective of the animal – not just appease the owner. It is hard to tell an owner that the problem they are experiencing is that they are expecting the animal to be what they want the animal to be, or that the owner unrealistically wants the animal to want everything the owner wants.
To express the most difficult matters clearly and intelligently, is to strike coins out of pure gold ~ Geibel
Imagine telling a horse owner the horse does not like horse shows, when the owner got the horse just for that reason! Many animal owners do not realize getting an animal family member is like getting married. It takes commitment and tons of compromise to get along, and lots of energy is needed to find out what makes the other happy – not just one’s self.
Animal readings can fix problems, but the whole picture needs to be addressed. If we fix an animal’s behavior problem, but not the underlying cause, we have failed them. If the animal is, for example, not getting enough exercise, I feel it is cruel to ask the animal to adapt to being a slave and live under conditions that are only good for the human.
If you get a psychic reading for your animal, make sure you are ready to correct yourself, and that you will be willing to make changes, even if inconvenient to you. This will help your animals receive what they need to have a good life with you!
