Several years ago we took a workshop with Tom de Winter where we learned that everything around us is alive and that all living beings understand the language of the heart, called love.
It was on our visit to the Bronx Zoo that I decided to try. With intention, I opened my heart and projected love to animals. To my surprise they felt it! Lions turned their heads towards me, a lazy bear gave some signs too. Next thing was visiting tigers.
There they were, restlessly pacing in their small enclosure, bored to death. Crowds of people coming and going, day after day, after day. And that particular day was not any different for them, it was pretty busy there. So I found my spot by the window and started calling one tiger from my heart: Come, come, please come.
Since I was a kid I had a strong love for felines, especially big cats like tigers and lions. Standing there and looking at those tigers I could not take my eyes off of them. They were so beautiful! Suddenly my tiger started walking toward me, closer and closer. He came to my window and we stared at each other for a moment. That moment was so special and seemed to last a while. I was surprised that there was no anger in the tiger’s eyes but wondering, asking me “Who are you?” I’m pretty sure I did not breathe while that moment lasted. Then he licked the window and walked away. I was so happy that I really wanted to jump the fence and give that tiger a big hug. And then I thought: Will he eat me? This dilemma circulated in my head for a long time. You would not believe it but I even searched online for any zoos where you can pet a tiger. But would he eat me, given a chance? What state of mind I should be in? What can trigger aggression? These questions did not want to leave me.
I’ve always wondered if it is possible to be at peace with wild animals. Can we really communicate with them, heart to heart?
A documentary we just watched, Animal Communicator, answered my questions in a very beautiful way.
Anna is an animal communicator from South Africa. She sharpened her skills of animal communication after attending a workshop in the US. In this film she explains how to feel animals and communicate with then. And this is something that can be learned, like reading or writing. You just need to practice to get a better understanding of how it works. She receives information from animals that is very accurate. It is so touching to see wild animals accepting her without any sight of aggression. It really brought tears to my eyes when a baboon touched her hand as a sign of appreciation.
And this is a skill that many indigenous peoples still have and use. It is hard to believe that they, who are so connected to Mother Earth and her creatures, have been looked down as barbarians or uncivilized.
The culmination of the film was when she talked to this gracious black leopard with emerald green eyes who was yet a ferocious beast, always growling at people passing by. He was so angry that the owner of the sanctuary he was living in did not know what to do with him. And quite honestly the owner was pretty skeptical of any success from the animal communicator. However, Anna spoke to the leopard telepathically and this wild animal changed his behavior and mean temper instantly and became totally relaxed. Seeing this, his owner was so overwhelmed that he broke into tears. And so did I. It was unbelievable!
I found it absolutely amazing that she did not have any fear even when she was approached by wild baboons … and they accepted her, no one attacked her. She was able to talk to them, completely respecting them for who they were. It does not matter whether you are talking to a wild animal or a domesticated one. They all have feelings, emotions, divine design. One needs to have an open heart and a quiet mind to communicate with not just animals but all life on this precious planet. And they can understand us humans through one language – that is the language of the heart.
At the time of watching this film, we started having issues with our own cat, Okusi, who is generally a very smart cat. She started peeing on all the rugs and pillows she could find. Okusi was clearly jealous of our little baby and wanted all of our attention like before. Those who have this happen know how hard it is to wash off cat pee… So we began thinking of making our kitty solely an outdoor cat. We were frustrated and so was she. The distance between us was growing as we started drifting emotionally apart.
You can imagine how excited we grew about our cat situation after watching this video. She was outside somewhere. Seconds after Dan called her from his heart, she came meowing. We were so happy to see her! As I was petting her, I sent her a telepathic image explaining that peeing at home on things is a No-No and that she could only do it outside unless her litter box was inside. I also sent her an image explaining that our daughter is our baby. She “said” that she felt less loved but I assured her that we loved her as before.
And … it has been more than two months since then and she has not peed on anything! I’m so proud of my kitty! Our relationship has improved so much because of this. We are truly amazed to see that animal communication works and can be very handy 🙂
