How to communicate with animals with Anna Breytenbach – Part Four

9. Are there any anecdotes that you’d like to share with my audience? Instances where you were able to identify the causes behind strange animal behavior patterns for instance?

There are many –  to do with, for example, horses who explain why they do or don’t want certain riders on their backs based on human personalities or possibly traumatic events in their past that continue to affect their present-day response patterns.

Then there was the case of the cat who wouldn’t retract his claws when playing, because – in his view – the women in the household “don’t retract their claws”, so why should he? Turns out he was seeing human fingernails as claws, and was miffed at the lack of fairness. When I explained that we humans can’t retract our “claws”, he scoffed that he thought that to be a pretty silly design flaw!

Another example is a domestic cat who befriended a puff adder snake and would lead it to safety away from the household which was occupied by people intent on killing the snake if they could find it.

I’ve worked with elephants who are so deeply traumatized by witnessing their family members being massacred in euphemistically-named “culls” that they cannot relate to any other being other than in an automated manner.

10. Finally, what kind of courses/training would you recommend to newbies interested in animal communication? Tell us about some of your workshops, etc.

I also see you organize “Animal Communication Safaris”. Wow, would love to hop on one of those! 😉 🙂

The basic weekend animal communication workshops I offer around South Africa give participants all the tools to communicate effectively across the species divide. We go deeply into the “Hows” and get down to practical matters in small groups (so that coaching and learning is maximized).

We look at applying the techniques in various ways, deepening our understanding of how to address behavioural issues, work with nature and wildlife sensitively, ascertain physical symptoms via telepathy, and connecting with animals who have left their bodies.

The longer “expedition” experiences involve going to wildlife in their natural habitat. These workshops last between four to six days and involve direct contact with animals in the wild, with only a few hours of workshop content per day. Whether a safari in Botswana or swimming with dolphins in Mozambique, we get to connect with the physical and spiritual realities of these amazing species.

Thank you Anna, what a great interview! 🙂
