As a former skeptic of the ability to communicate with animals via telepathy I was curious as to what people who are not so open to such ideas would say about pet psychics.

I must say that I do not believe that everyone who claims to have this ability is truly being honest. Just like the psychic medium field is plagued with fraud, so is the animal communicator field. Sadly when one has an experience that does not meet their expectations, they tend to tell everyone about it. Those who have had a genuine experience do not always inform their friends and family since they do not want to deal with being ridiculed by others who have not had their own experience or whom do not have an open mind.

Even after discovering the ability to “speak” with the dead, I was not ready to accept that you could talk to animals. It was only after having several animals connect with me during readings that I began to accept that we can communicate with live animals via telepathy.

In placing a simply inquiry  into the subject recently on a web site dedicated to people who love their animals, I was dismayed to see the lack of understanding about animal communication, though not surprised. I asked a simple question, if anyone had ever had an experience with a pet psychic and if so, what was the experience like?

One of the most common responses by individuals was that they did not believe in psychics and especially pet psychics because they feel that a “pet psychic” can say anything about the animal and that there is no way to verify the accuracy of the information coming through.  I would agree with that viewpoint, except for the following reasons.

1.) When I connect with an animal, I do not require a photograph or a description of the animal in order to connect with them.

Most “pet psychics” request a description or photograph of the animal that you wish to connect with. This is completely unnecessary as once I am connected with an animal and I start receiving information from them, they will usually begin by describing their physical appearance to me, which I then in turn will relay to the animals’ person who can then confirm or deny the connection. The vast majority of the readings I do are done over the phone.

2.) Personal details related to the animal which are impossible to know in advance will often be brought through.

One of the most common pieces of information that animals provide to me is how they met their person and what age they are along with any unique markings they have and perhaps one of their favorite memories of their humans.

3.) Answers will be accurate even if the human attempts to trip up the “pet psychic”.

During a recent reading I revealed that a particular horse disliked a certain riding activity. The horses’ person immediately challenged the statement by seeming to be surprised at the response, and acting as though he expected the opposite in response. When I asked the horse again and he reaffirmed his feelings about the matter, the owner confessed that the information that I was bringing forward was accurate and that he was simply testing me.

4.) Where there is smoke, there is fire.

Many claim to have psychic abilities for any number of reasons. Those who really have developed them will always work towards the greater good and will not be simply driven by money. If something does not feel right to you or they try and charge you for more than a simple reading, take great caution. Those who are genuine tend to get noticed by others, check the “pet psychics” references, and ask if they have a guarantee that if you are unhappy or for any reason and or believe that a connection was not made during the course of the reading, that they can expect a full refund with no complaint.

5.) People expect that if you can talk to animals, that they will stop their “odd” behaviors, listen to you, mind you and or perform tricks for you … etc.

In some cases animals will perform “tricks” and other tasks that I request of them, but just like your own children, just because you two can chat with each other, it does not mean that they will listen to you or follow your directions. Animals are just like us, and some like to entertain while others want to be left alone. Many times if there is a “bad” behavior being addressed, the animal may choose to snub the conversation.

6.) We can all talk to our animals, they understand our words and thoughts. Hearing them is the tricky part, some of us can connect with them after a little bit of guidance and practice while others may have great difficulty doing so.

It is important to remember to speak about your animals in a positive light. Do not reinforce negative behaviors, try and speak with positive affirmations regarding any behavior problems with your animals and remember that most behavior problems are simply the results of poor communication and a lack of understanding.
