What can this do for us? Both people and animals benefit from adding this level of communication, says Jacquelin. Besides deepening connection with our pet and enjoying being closer, animals help us and teach us about ourselves and one another.
COMMUNICATE WITH MORE THAN A PAT OR A STROKE
How does an Animal Communicator do this? Jacquelin works mostly over phone where she helps owners understand their pets.
"Sue called me," she says, "because she couldn’t figure out why her cat, Jane, would not use cat door to go outside. When I asked Jane why, she shot me a picture of cat door and showed me that first time she started to walk through it, she got scared and didn’t feel safe. She felt walls might close in on her. I could feel fear she felt with this experience. Then I communicated nonverbally with Jane and told her she’d be safe and that walls wouldn’t close in on her. I sent her a picture of how she could walk through it. The next day Sue called and told me that Jane was now using cat door."
Jacquelin can help you get message across in ways a pat or a stroke cannot. She offers step-by-step techniques for communicating with your animal companion that you can learn with consultations, workshops, booklet or tape.
"I can’t tell you what a relief it was," says MJ Abell, one of Jacquelin’s clients, "to find out what was going on. My cat was doing destructive things while I was at work, and Jacquelin showed me what to do. It worked like a charm! My cat had been trying to tell me all along, but I wasn’t getting message."
Visual images are important, says Jacquelin, especially when you’re trying to work with your animal companion for a behavior change, one of Jacquelin's specialties.
I think I’ll pick up phone right now because Baby Kittee has been meowing for several minutes and I have no idea what she wants!
