Let’s! Some people can, you know. There’s even those that give courses on it. One woman who was interviewed on Coast to Coast, reported an incident of falling off a horse into a small stream and hitting her head. When she got up she realized something had shifted and suddenly she could understand what the horse was thinking. He was upset because no one had ever fallen off him before, and now the owners might send him to a special camp for re-training. So it seems that direct communication is indeed possible.
I’ve had a few interesting experiences with birds that way – where I was given a lesson or a message by their behaviour.
At a time when I was in contact with my dream-interpretation teacher, I had occasion to watch a bird cleaning/grooming itself in my backyard. Not unusual, but the persistence of it was – he went on and on and on, till everyone in my family noticed and remarked on it. When I reported this to my teacher, she just said: “Well, dear, that’s for you”. IE. I myself needed cleaning up, and lots of. Ouch!
Another time we’d had difficulty with squirrels getting into the bird feeder and decided to just take down the feeder altogether. After a few weeks I return home one day through the back gate and see something remarkable. Sitting on the fence right beside where I had to walk, chest high, was a long line of birds sitting beside each other – all with their heads turned towards me, staring, expectant. I paused for a moment, a little taken aback, then I got it. “ok, ok, I get it !” There was no arguing what the congregation was about. The bird feeder went up the next day.
On yet another occasion I seemed to be encouraged to go on a longer car trip to Long Island, New York, to participate in a channelling at Pathways to Health. An usual bird sitting just outside my window was singing and singing. When I slowly approached him telling him my problem and asking him the question of should I go? He stopped, turned his head to look at me. Shook himself vigorously and took off. I went.
As Rex Harrison (Doctor Doolittle) would say:
If we could Talk to The Animals just imagine it,
Chatting to a chimp in chimpanzee,
Imagine talking to a tiger, chatting to a cheetah,
What a neat achievement it would be.
If we could Talk to The Animals, learn their languages,
Maybe take an animal degree.
We’d study elephant and eagle, buffalo and beagle,
Alligator, guinea pig and flea.
We would converse in polar bear and python,
And we would curse in fluent kangaroo,
If people asked us “Can you speak rhinoceros?”
We’d say “Of scours-er-os! Can’t you?”…
