Animal communication is the sharing of energies which develops into a two-way communication that is neither verbal or physical in nature.
It involves the exchange of thoughts, sensations, feelings, and emotions over time and distance.
More information: What is Animal Communication?
Do I believe in it? Let’s say I believe in it enough. I witnessed observations and insights that indicate it is credible. I believe in it enough to continue to turn to an animal communicator for the benefit of my dog(s).
Jasmine’s episodes of panting, pacing, restlessness, and discomfort continued and eluded explanation. They would come and go, and nobody knew why and what to do about them. We tried EVERYTHING.
Several times we thought we had this all figured out and fixed. But the episodes went away only to return. So what else can one try when all the conventional, and even some of the less conventional, options fail to bring a clear answer?
If Jasmine could tell us
Wouldn’t it be nice if Jasmine could tell us what was bothering her?
The first time I heard about the idea of an animal communicator was from hubby’s friend. She didn’t have direct experience with this, but her friend did, and the help she received this way was excellent. The idea certainly sounds terrific in theory.
I was mulling this over for a long time but did not overcome my skepticism.
The second time I received the suggestion was from Dr. Nancy Kay. When discussing Jasmine’s episodes with her, she said that we probably need Doctor Dolittle—a doctor who can understand what animals are saying. “You might need to keep an open mind,” she said and suggested trying an animal communicator. Dr. Kay has seen cases where such insights did help to arrive at a diagnosis.
Coming from Dr. Kay put the idea into a completely different light.
The third time this subject came up was during Jasmine’s visit with her chiropractor. She [Jasmine’s chiropractor] too testified to cases when this approach led to a diagnosis and solution of a problem.
One thing seemed certain—it could not hurt anything. Gotta try everything once (or twice), right?
Trying an animal communicator
We first tried this with the animal communicator and Reiki practitioner recommended by Dr. Kay. I had a problem with a couple of things about that session, but overall, it was pretty impressive. She said some stuff about Jasmine that certainly did describe Jasmine. Some of the things she said about the episodes were right on the money and corresponded to my observations.
Unfortunately, while it sounded like that was what Jasmine felt during her episodes, we couldn’t pin a diagnosis to that either. To be fair, it is not always easy to diagnose a human being either, even though they can describe all their symptoms and sensations.
Why try again?
Same reason as the first time—desperate to find an answer. If it can’t hurt, why not do it? We’d go for a veterinary second opinion; why not go for one in a case like this too? Jasmine’s chiropractor said that her reports were thorough, detailed, and highly specific.
Most importantly, I wouldn’t forgive myself if I didn’t try it. It is easier to live with the mistakes you made than with those you did not make.
I was genuinely impressed. Below is the transcript of the report. Generally, the first part of the session was Jasmine showing whatever Jasmine felt like showing, then she responded to specific questions, and then this communicator did a body scan.
Animal communicator’s report on Jasmine
When I first connected with Jasmine, I sensed her having a very playful and sweet temperament.
[Jana] She certainly is.
She shows me carrying something that looks like it’s Kleenex or some paper product and with this is a sense of wanting to play and be chased. As if she would take things she is not supposed to want to play with.
[Jana] This is actually very funny because Jasmine loved paper stuff since she was little. She loved ripping up tissues and toilet paper, and she loved burying things too. So this paints a picture of Jasmine.
I feel her hind end is weak as I see her trying to pull herself up with her front legs.
[Jana] Jasmine certainly has been having problems with some of the hip muscles, so this makes perfect sense.
She shows me something massaging her left shoulder, and it does feel like there is some muscle pain there, but she seems to be enjoying the massage.
[Jana] I massage that area during the episodes because it seems the front left side is a problem area during these. This also corresponds with what the earlier communicator said.
She shows me walking in water, not swimming but walking along in the water, so I’m not sure if she doesn’t like to swim or if she is just in shallow water.
[Jana] Quite cute because the communicator was confused about this; the first thing that comes to my mind is Jasmine’s underwater treadmill.
She is giving me the sense of someone wrapping their arms around her neck and just hugging her, and she feels the love when you do this.
[Jana] That would be me. I do this a lot.
I see her paw pads, and I feel that she has had some injury or crack in the pad. It feels like the front left had past damage.
[Jana] She had a cut from a broken glass
She is showing me scratching like crazy. Her left hind reaches up to the left shoulder or underarm area to scratch.
[Jana] This is fascinating because Jasmine is not an itchy dog and hardly ever scratches herself. However, during the episodes, she is trying to reach toward her front left side; I always thought it was towards her elbow, but it could be that it is someplace else she’s trying to reach. So the question remains does she want to scratch because of itchiness or another type of sensation.
She again shows me someone hugging her, and they are talking to her. And she is very thankful for all they are doing for her, and she wants them to know that she understands what they are saying.
[Jana] It Never hurts to hear this again
She is showing me her heart beating regularly, but I am feeling the heart is stressed as it feels to me like it is pounding, and with that, I have a sensation of compression between the shoulder blades along the spine (so I am thinking that when she starts going into these bouts, she gets tense and carries stress in this area)
[Jana] Yes, I definitely think that whatever is behind these episodes is a source of enormous stress. The mention of a sensation of compression between the shoulder blades also corresponds with the report from the first communicator.
She is showing me the left hip, and the joint seems to be off a bit as I see the socket almost capping instead of cupping the ball end of the joint.
[Jana] This is interesting because there certainly is a problem in the left hip area, though it is believed to be a problem with soft tissues and muscles rather than the joint. Something to investigate further.
I hear someone calling her “you silly girl” as they rub her head.
[Jana] Too funny, because yes, this is precisely what I do when she’s being silly.
Questions for Jasmine
1) What is bothering you during those episodes?
She shows me having problems breathing through her nose, maybe because she is panting so much. It is not abdominal discomfort or internal issues.
It does not feel physical but more mental as her body seems to react like she is under stress, and I am not getting any pain from her that is creating this. She is showing me someone working at the base of her tail, and it feels like they are wiping something off or stroking her, and she is just standing there.
[Jana] I don’t feel it is caused by pain because it does not respond to pain meds. I don’t feel it is strictly psychological, though. Jasmine doesn’t come across as fearful. She seems happy and content. There is, however, definitely a lot of stress involved in the episodes. The question is, what is the source—something to ponder.
2) Is it pain? Itching? Tingling? Other sensation?
I feel she has bouts of being itchy, but this is not the issue. Yes, to tingling, and it’s her body all over. I feel she may be oversensitive to various energetic/magnetic shifts. Does she react to your moods as well? Do moon changes affect her also? Geopathic stress can also affect dogs, changing under the earth’s surfaces.
I have done healing for her sensing chakra to see if I can bring down her sensing ability to a more balanced state.
[Jana] Tingling was on my list of suspects. That’s why I asked that. Interesting thoughts regarding the magnetic shifts and geopathic stress, something I was wondering about. Moon does not seem to be involved, as I did track moon phases concerning Jasmine’s episodes, and no clear pattern showed up.
3) Is it something else, do you have a hard time to breathe?
Yes, and I think this is because she is stressed mentally and, in turn, physically.
[Jana] Interesting, because I always felt it was the other way around.
4) Is it worse when you lay down?
She is uncomfortable when lying down.
[Jana] That was my observation which I wanted to confirm.
5) What would you like me to do for you during these?
Comfort and reassure, but also give her space. The more you dote over her, the more stressed she gets.
Grounding – visualize a white light coming in the top of her head and going through her body and out all four paws and the end of her tail and going into the earth. Then visualize all the extra energy she does not need, and she is picking up go out the bottom of her feet and the end of her tail and make sure you visualize it going deep into the earth, so there is a good flow going.
Then you can visualize her in a white bubble with gold trim and set it with the intention of the gold trim stopping her from taking in excess energies.
You can try Herbal Calmer (brand name) or E-Z rest (by Omega Alpha).
You can also try to use a wrap like a T-shirt as long as it is snug but not tight – this works on the principle of swaddling like babies.
Look up dowsing for geopathic stress.
[Jana] It’s a lot to digest here, but you might as well try it; tried everything else.
6) Did any of the things we tried ever help?
Marginally, she shows me what looks like a yellow/gold powder?
[Jana] That would have to be the TCVM herbals.
Jasmine’s body scan
- Neurologically – all seems ok I don’t feel it is a neurological issue
[Jana] neurological issues were pretty much ruled out
- Eyes – good
- Ears – good
- Mouth – teeth are good
[Jana] yeah, they are, Jasmine’s vet is pleased with them; they get brushed twice daily
- Thyroid – seems off as well (I am actually hearing all over the place so to me that would mean fluctuating which I have never had before)
[Jana] This is extremely interesting! Something that was on my mind and something that came up in the results of Jasmine’s fur analysis also. This would actually be one of my primary suspects, which could also be behind the stress.
- Heart – seems good but does become stressed during episodes
[Jana] yes, on both counts; heart checked out but does show signs if distress during the episodes
- Lungs – seem good
[Jana] yes, lungs checked out
- Her digestive system seems to be working ok but slow
[Jana] yes, that is correct
- Pancreas – good
- Liver – feels like it has toxin buildup
- Kidneys – good
- Adrenals – good
- Spine is good aside from what was mentioned above
- Front legs seem good
[Jana] yes, the joints seem happy now after the stem cell treatment
That was a lot to ponder … gave me some things to focus on and try out.
Note: this is all done remotely; the communicator never met Jasmine and could not have been reading her body language or any other physical signs.
What did I think?
I didn’t know for sure what I thought exactly, but I was pretty impressed, and it certainly gave us some ideas to pursue where there weren’t any. We have used June many times since, and she always impressed me and provided valuable insights.
We continue to benefit from consultations with an animal communicator for Cookie too. I share the reports with Cookie’s veterinarian and physical therapist. It often helps to refocus or paint a more comprehensive picture.
