My Journey In Animal Communication
by Nola Baylis
After learning many holistic therapies, including energy healing, my journey took another path, especially working with dogs. My husband and I adopted an elderly Old English Sheepdog from our local animal rescue centre called Scrumpy Jack, a stray from a local farm. The vet had never seen an animal so neglected as he was deaf, blind (cataracts, detached retina and glaucoma), heart condition so matted he could hardly walk, and nails completely turned into a circle.
I knew I had so many holistic tools, so I started with energy healing, magnetic therapy and much more. Even the guests (we ran a bed and breakfast) who came that first week gave him Reiki and crystal healing, which was terrific.
I was urged to look for an animal communication workshop and attended two held on Dartmoor. I then did case studies of friend's animals and also animals I had never met before, using photos that showed the eyes well. I hold my hands over the image to get into their energy field and see them surrounded by white light.
One family had three dogs and three cats, and I was astounded when I read the photos and the answers that came into my head in a flash. I asked where their favourite walk was and one cat. I got the impression of an alleyway, one a garden and one indoors. I wondered what was my favourite toy and instantly saw a piece of wood with a bit of string and feather on the end. I was correct with everything, and the stick was kept on the back door, ready to get the cats in.
I asked other questions like: Where do you like to sleep? What is your favourite food? Are you happy? Your special friend or human? Are you in pain? Have you ever had an injury? Do you have a message for your guardian? And even what is the colour of your bed?
Information can come as words or sentences, pictures or visions, feelings and emotions, physical sensations (you may even feel them in your body corresponding to the area of discomfort in the animal), or flash thoughts, which is how I receive them.
If you trust yourself and are sincere, you will not get false information, no matter how insane it sounds. I never let logic get in the way and acknowledge the Soul and Spirit of the animal. All beings are equal.
Animals live in a slower vibration than us and have a loving, open heart full of unconditional love. The connection can be made when we slow down, clear our minds, and open our hearts. Animals have highly developed emotional bodies and live in a world of feelings, images and energies rather than a world of sound/thought concepts.
I always start by relaxing, taking deep breaths, and focusing on the heart centre. I build trust and stay centered in love, mindfully connected, telling the animals that I love them and am here to help and that they are safe. It is also good to ask permission to talk to the animal and ask for their patience.
At the end of the reading, I always thank them and tell them that I am grateful for the connection and see the animal bathed in a pink bubble of light. I then ground myself and surround myself in light, love and protection.
