Listen to my Podcast, "Let's Have A Chat!" - Episode 13 Here
Maybe you remember, I shared it with you in episode 1, that in March of 2021, I felt this urge to sit down with my laptop and take dictation from ... what I presume is my higher Self.
Three weeks and 21,000 words later, I held a manuscript in my hands. When I read it from tip to toe, so to speak, I knew that those words were a blend of what I had learned from animals over the last five decades.
The title for the script is: Take a Breath. Have a Chat. Be Amazed.
I knew right away why this had to be the title. And you know this too by now if you have listened to this podcast tip to toe.
When you take a deep conscious breath and put yourself into the present moment. When you verbally chat with your animal, explain the who, what's, and why's to your animal.
When you tell your dog, kitty, horse, donkey, or cockatoo what you love about them and what you expect from them, just like you speak with a four-year-old child, you will be amazed by the response and the deep connection you experience.
I wondered for a while how to bring this information out into the world. Having the bones of a manuscript, it seemed apparent that I would turn it into book # 3.
Being a realist, I knew that a book deal and subsequent worldwide book release were possible but also slim. And my goal is to reach as many people as possible to positively affect as many animals as possible. So, a podcast felt like a great way to share the information across the globe. I got clients in Germany and France, Spain and Australia, and of course the USA. So why not invite you all to have a chat with me so we can together explore the secret and the magic of connecting with animals in meaningful ways.
Having recorded 14 episodes, this included, I have to say ... I like it. Chatting with you like this feels like the perfect medium right now. I love that I can record more bonus episodes when I have a new insight that fits a certain theme of an episode. And, I also love that this is not our last episode together.
As I started recording the manuscript of "Let's have a chat," I realized that I had to share the manuscript with you in three parts. So this is the last episode of part one, which is called, as you know, "Let's have a chat."
I am currently working on part 2, and with that series, we will dive into body chats. I will share with you how you can have a meaningful physical dialogue with your animal. Not just pet, pet, pet on the head or nose, oh no, we will be moving into the issues that get stuck in the tissues. We will chat about how you can release tension and provide ease for you and your animal in rather magical ways.
And then, in part 3, we will be chatting about chatting telepathically with our animals. Because by then, you will be spending much less time in your head and more time in your body. And … that will give your intuition a chance to make herself, or himself, known.
Now you know my plan. It's always good to know the plan, our mind and that of our animals like to know :-)))
As I am moving us into recapping what we've chatted about in part 1, I want to share what happened when I thought about what to call this last episode.
The title, "Tying it all together," popped immediately into my head. It came back as a title the next day and the day after that. I finally asked out loud, "why this name?" and the answer was suddenly apparent to me. Because tying all this information together and putting a bow on it, we have a gift in our hands. And, isn't that the truth, the gift we are holding right now is to know how to be present.
Just like the saying says: the present is the greatest gift …!
Now know, there is no more significant gift you can give to your animal than your presence. No cookie, treat, or carrot will ever have the same frequency or meaning as you taking a breath to meet your animal in the now. Once you arrive in the now, use your senses to see and hear and smell and feel what your animal feels. Don't project, but start seeing the world through your animal's eyes. Express yourself verbally, and then take a breath and wait for a response from your furry or feathery friend.
As you open the space for a reply, as you suddenly find yourself in a dialogue with your animal, you will be amazed about the deep sense of connection that fills your heart.
And, now you know, if your animal displays an unusual, quirky or unexpected behavior, take a breath, and look at the five areas that can create ease or unease for yourself and your animal: 1. people, 2. purpose, 3. environment, 4. herd/pack/peers, and 5. health.
Where is unease? And what can you change to create ease instead so the behavior gets resolved and your world goes back to unconditional love and joy?
A dear client of mine recently noticed that her dog was more anxious than usual and that the horse she leased was giving her the cold shoulder. After a strenuous day at work, she sat down on her sofa to work some more on her computer. Suddenly her knee locked up, and she couldn't move. When she looked at the five areas that can bring ease or unease, she realized that her purpose was not fulfilled by her corporate job. She felt increasingly uneasy at her job, and her dog, horse, and body reflected that she was out of alignment with her purpose.
When my client decided to look for a job that provided more mental and spiritual inspiration, her knee eased up, and so did her dog. When she arrived at the barn the next day, the horse greeted her happily.
We are energy, and everything around us is energy. Your deep breath will inspire someone else to take a breath too. Your kind word will reverberate through your animal's consciousness into the larger consciousness. Your ease will contribute to the greater ease in the world.
I am so grateful that you have been with me for part one of "Let's have a chat", I can't wait to share more of what the animals want you to know in part 2 and 3.
Until then, let's stay connected. Reach me through my website mindful-connections.com and get on the podcast alert list so I can tell you when part two is riding the airwaves.
Thanks for listening. Goodbye and Auf Wiedersehen.
