From the Horse's Mouth - Feature Article
Respect When Communicating
For those of you who have had communication sessions done by me, you may recall that in the opening of my report, I state “I always start a communication session by asking the animal if they are willing to communicate with me. Doing this sets up our relationship as one of respect for each other, which is important if I am to get the most out of the session.”
This is something that I learned in the very first class that I took on how to communicate. After receiving the basics of communicating from the instructor, we were divided into teams of two to begin practicing our new skills. After a bit of time, we switched partners and tried again.
This time, my partner said that she couldn’t get any information from my horse, Scarborough, whose picture I had brought to the session. She inquired about this to the instructor seeking help and the instructor’s immediate response was whether she has asked Scarborough if he was willing to communicate. She meekly said no. She had forgotten this step. Well, she tried again and sure enough Scarborough was more than willing to communicate. It seemed he didn’t know who this woman was and just like we like our privacy, he wasn’t willing to just open up to anyone.
Recently a new client, Chigusa S. from Bellvue, WA asked me this interesting question. What happens if the animal doesn’t agree to the communication?
I told Chagusa that in all my time communicating, I have had several animals who were shy and needed time to get to know me before they would trust me but no one has ever refused. I believe that is because I work hard at providing them a non-threatening environment and allow them to accept me at their own pace.
Several times, I have contacted an animal and it feels to me as though they are around the corner peeking at me, checking me out to be sure I’m safe. I just remind them that I am coming to them because their person asked me to and then give them enough time to accept me at their own pace.
But most of all, I try very hard to present a sense of respect for the animal. I believe this is what allows me to have the success that I do in that the animals are willing to share some very personal information with me. This is definitely an intimate experience for the animal and they won’t be willing to share the information that their people are looking for if they don’t trust the person who is asking.
On a funnier note…. I did have one cat agree to communicating with me but when I asked him who of all the cats in his family was not using the litter box in the house, he drew the line there. He didn’t want to tattle on his friends. Now that has only happened once and even his person had to admit this was pretty funny.
So bottom line… I know all of us try hard to respect our animals in so many ways including how we work with them and treat them in our day to day lives. And it is just as important when any of us use animal communication as a way to interact with them.
Respect…..an important tool in animal communication, for sure.

Now this is an interesting perspective. John Wells put a camera at the bottom of a water bucket to see who visits. It starts slowly but it gets more and more interesting.

Feature Story – Respect When Communicating
Some laughs and more!
From Donna D. of Mission Viejo, CA…. Thank you for communicating with Roxy so quickly. And I can't thank you enough for offering to keep the line of communication open for her to reach out to you should she need to. Offering this truly touched my heart. Thank you again for your insights and gift.
From Sharyn J. of Mountain Top, TX… I am sending you a giant virtual hug because Diva has been doing GREAT since your chat with her. Today was Diva's day to get in the carrier. And Danielle...she went In!! You helped her!!! A zillion thanks!
From Mikesh T. of Portland, OR…. I am more than pleased with this session. It brought me into tears while going thru each question. I am completely satisfied with Jackal’s response and more with your help. Without you, this session would have been impossible. You truly possess an ability that the world has yet to discover. I will definitely recommend your website and your amazing work to my friends and all the people I know.
Trista L. of Fruita, CO…Thank you so much, Danielle. I think I might love Jovi even more after this session! It's so great to hear that she is loving her job. We worry that these cow horses will get bored with the barrels!

A Good Laugh
Wanda's dishwasher quit working so she called in a repairman. Since she had to go to work the next day, she told the repairman, "I'll leave the key under the mat. Fix the dishwasher, leave the bill on the counter, and I'll mail you a check. Oh, by the way don't worry about my dog Spike. He won't bother you."
"But, whatever you do, do NOT, under ANY circumstances, talk to my parrot! I MUST STRESS TO YOU: DO NOT TALK TO MY PARROT!!!"
When the repairman arrived at Wanda's apartment the following day, he discovered the biggest, meanest looking dog he has ever seen. But, just as she had said, the dog just lay there on the carpet watching the repairman go about his work.
The parrot, however, drove him nuts the whole time with his incessant yelling, cursing and name calling. Finally the repairman couldn't contain himself any longer and yelled, "Shut up, you stupid, ugly bird!"
To which the parrot replied, "Get him Spike!"
Hmm…some people just don’t listen!
Congratulations to Patricia N. of Mesa, AZ and her new cat, Roxy. Roxy is a beautiful 16 year old and is going to have a wonderful life in a loving home. Thanks, Patricia for choosing an older cat. And here’s the latest picture of the “married couple”, Bruce Lee and Samantha, as Barb M of Lomita, CA likes to call them. Barb adopted these two cuties after the death of their person. Aren’t they adorable? Now this is how to spend a summer day at the dog park. Doesn’t Apollo look comfortable? It’s a Labrador thing! Thanks Karen C. of Ludlow, KY for sharing this adorable picture with us. And this month, I was introduced to Diva, a beautiful rabbit who is part of Sharyn J.’s family in Mountain Top, PA. It turns out that Diva’s previous family abandoned this poor domesticated rabbit in the outdoors. Over time, with food and water in hand, Sharyn was able to gain Diva’s trust and take her home where she now lives a wonderful life and enjoys keeping Sharyn company while she paints. Diva, you are one lucky girl!
We love to hear what’s going on with you and your animals. Just send us an email at AnimalConn@aol.com and feel free to include pictures.
