Reflection: Interspecies Communication
Sharing Thoughts with Tibou the Dog

The morning before animal communicator Barbara Janell came to visit our class, I had followed the steps discussed in the text "The Language of Animals." I had hoped that practicing the meditation and visualization techniques would allow me to further understand Barbara's points of view and exercises related to interspecies telepathic communication. She discussed similar techniques and strategies to help clear the mind and become in tune with the natural world and all beings, non-human and human.

Our class was fortunate to have Tibou the Dog with us so that Barbara could demonstrate her methods of interspecies communication. After our class had completed some of the techniques she discussed (Watching the breath, relaxing all parts of the body, feeling Tibou's presence, etc) I had noticed about an hour into the discussion session that Tibou had been sitting next to my feet for almost five minutes. This seemed like a long period of time for a dog to sit near one person when multiple people were in the room.

Tibou stared at me during that period of time. It felt like he was trying to tell me something. I stared back at him and sent him positive thoughts and images of warmth and kindness. He continued to stair back at me for a few minutes and I felt a similar feeling/vibration from Tibou that I had sent him. This exchange of positive vibrations between species (dog and human) was quite strong. I predict these thoughts/vibrations were easily exchanged as a result of the meditation techniques I did earlier that morning, practicing Barbara's techniques and being in tune with Tibou's presence.

After reading “7 Steps to Communicating with Animals” and hearing Barbara Janell speak, I have become more aware of my surroundings, the environment, people and the animals (birds, squirrels, dogs, raccoons) that I see on a day to day basis. I try to feel the presence of the various species I encounter. Sometimes I send them visual images or thoughts. I don’t always get a response, but occasionally I notice that they strongly sense my presence.
