How to shift your energy to work with the animals effectively.

How to shift your energy to work with the animals effectively.

You need to first be aware of the energy you are projecting.   As humans we go through much of our life oblivious to the energy we project and what other project on us.  If we can’t see it, many time we dismiss it. But the fact is, the energy around us is what the animals see and react to on a daily basis.  

Our thoughts effect our energy, so be conscious of what you think. 

When we are not living in the moment our energy appears to be all over the place, erratic and fragmented.  By shifting our awareness to being in the moment or present, our energy takes on a calmer more approachable appearance.   Also, when we are “in the moment” we are much more able to listen.   In our multitasking society, being “in the moment” is much harder than it sounds.  Being in the moment does not mean checking our phone, or thinking about the past, worrying about the future etc.  It means being still and conscious of all around you in the very moment. In this state we become more aware of the subtle communication that is going on all around us. 

Another way to make our energy more receptive to the animals is to ground our energy.  Some of us can become easily “wound up” and this energy really turns animals off.  It is like listening to a radio with a lot of static.  A great visual for what our energy looks like when we are “wound up” or un grounded is to think of our energy like that of a sparkler, shooting all around our body.   By grounding our energy and softening or diffusing it, we become less threatening to the animal world.  Our energy then takes on a soft hue without the ragged edges and unpredictable surges.   This is when the animals will be most receptive.   This is true among all species.   

Behind the Scenes II

by Debbie McGillivray & Sue Steffens on 09/04/12

When we visited the different sanctuaries, we toured the facility with the owners and were introduced to many of the animals there.   The premise behind the book was to allow the animals to have a voice on a larger scale to touch many people and hopefully many lives.   Some animals were very eager to communicate and their messages streamed through beautifully.   When information comes through this way, I am merely a channel trying to get the words and messages down on paper as fast as I can.   Most of the time, I have no concept of what they told me until I go back and read my notes.  This is a great example of channeling information from the animals.  Of course some of the animals, just love to have an audience and want to chat about all sorts of things.   This can be delightful in many ways, and I relish the time with many of them when the energy we exchange back and forth is understood and responded to.   This is like actually having a conversation with the animals, except much of what is said is silent or telepathic.    

Some of the animals are reserved and do not open up right away.  Sometimes after I have sat with them for a bit, and they feel comfortable with my energy, they will begin to answer my questions.    Just like people, there are those that are outgoing and outspoken and those that are more reserved and cautious.    By shifting my energy accordingly, I can help the animals to feel more comfortable in sharing their thoughts with us.

Behind the scenes on the making of the book.

Many of you have been curious as to how this book came about and where we traveled to communicate with some of the amazing animals featured in the book, Untamed Voices. 

I have been an animal communicator for over 15 years and am always amazed at the scope of information the animals can sense.  Some of them convey to me their impression of us, laughing at the way we walk and what we wear.  Others are very opinionated and are very specific about what they want and need.   Some of the animals also warn us as to future events and even illness within our bodies.  It never ceases to amaze me what they communicate and how correct they are.   They know things about us and the earth that we somehow don't pick up, yet they are so accurate.  How do they know these thing?   

First off, animals have a heightened awareness when it comes to energy.   They can see it and read it.  In the book, Harley the Bobcat states "I am particularly in tune to the cascading swirls of energy that present themselves".  AnnaBelle, the Tiger comments "stress looks like polluted air floating around a person's energy.  It is stagnant, heavy and dark."   Given this heightened sense of awareness animals are privy to things that many humans miss.    In the book many of the animals warn us as to upcoming earth changes and energy shifts.   

I worked with Sue for many years, communicating with the many animals in her care at Tigers For Tomorrow at Untamed Mountain.  Benny, the black leopard, always leaves me speachless and like a giggling school girl around her idol.   He orchestrated much of this book, heckling us when we were stalling, telling us who to talk to, and where to go.   He is like a George Clooney in a cat body, who I am to say no!  We did as he asked, and the concept for the book was manifested.   Sue and I both feel the animals have alot to say and have witnessed it first hand, the book allows them to get their messages heard. 

Sue and I started working with the animals at the preserve, many who are "master teachers" and "old souls."   We also traveled to other sanctuaries to broaden our research.  Some of the places we visited in the making of this book, were Octagon Wildlife Refuge in Punta Gorda Florida, Suncoast Primate Sanctuary in Palm Harbor Florida, Joshua's Haven in Plant City Florida and Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary to name a few.
