Animals Are So Aware of Energy

Animals are so aware of energy. Recently I was telling my hair stylist about the anecdotes people have shared about their animals who listen to my monthly Storytelling for Animals and People which includes Reiki and shamanic energy as well as animal communication. How one cat family kept requesting replays of the audio to soothe the stress from introduction of a new puppy, and in another home the stories helped a dog and cat calm their fears from a thunderstorm.

We discussed how animals hear and feel so much more than just sound when they listen—the content they are being exposed to is important. We talked about how Amazon/Audible is launching audios for dogs, but that their emphasis is on the sound of the voices, not the story. As and animal communicator I don’t understand why they would choose Jane Austen (much as I love her) rather than a story line that a dog might be interested in like The Incredible Journey.

And then my stylist shared that she used to leave NPR on for her dog as company when she was at work. But after the presidential election she began to notice that her dog seemed agitated rather than calm when she got home. She ended up changing to the old movie channel and her dog’s behavior grew calmer.

Energy and content matter to animals (and people).

In April 2017, I launched monthly telecall Storytelling for Animals and People at the request of the animals and guidance from my allies.

The series focused on celebrating animals as teachers, healers, friends and guides, and were drawn from my personal experiences. Many of them focus on animal teachers in my life prior to becoming a professional energy healer and animal communicator. And revisiting the past has raised my awareness of exactly how much the animals have guided my steps to the healing path I am now on.

Before each call I opened and set sacred space with both shamanism and Reiki, inviting All My Relations and my allies to the shamanic storytelling time.

Hearing the stories listener share about how their animals responded warms my heart. Not only did many blended animal/human families gather quietly to listen to the stories live, the audio replay available afterward seemed to be equally popular.

Storytelling for Animals and People is  now available as a video!
In olden times, folks gathered together around the fire to listen to stories that amused, inspired, and touched the heart. I thought it might be fun to revive that ancient tradition with the help of modern technology and my two cats, Manitou and Night Sky.

  1. Totally agree with this! In the absence of better sound &/or content dispensing equipment in our house than the TV, we’ve started leaving it on our Local Channel 9 programs, DisneyJr or NickJr whenever we’re gone for the day. After spending a lot of time with young kids, I thought our dog(s) might benefit from not feeling quite so alone & like hearing or seeing some positive, upbeat, kind people having “adventures” + the bright colors, sounds & basic skills of shows for kids aged 2-5 (about where I’d rank my least sensitive dog’s skills & awareness, neither to flatly endorse any media nor directly compare children & dogs, but both small humans & animals definitely make messes, destroy things, require good food, attention, clean-up, dr visits & patience) to thrive with us. While I’d think more intelligent/aware animals might appreciate more Animal Planet or Nat Geo shows with adventure stories like Rose mentioned above, the intense “rescue” &/or abuse footage often shown-mostly courtesy of the USPCA-on those channels disturbs me greatly & I don’t want the sights or sounds of especially fellow domestic animals’ + even more stressed people energy streaming into their safe place while mine are alone. Also, with one of us adults here a *news* junkie & my own choice since 9/11 to purposely avoid news broadcasts, it’s always nice to have a break from the noise & overt exposure to typical negative news ledes, no matter how calm the following discussions may be, which definitely helps make the atmosphere more comfortable for all of us here. ❤️
