When Animals Speak
Techniques for Bonding With Animal Companions
The trusted guidebook for animal lovers that describes the astonishing ways in which humans can speak with—and listen to—all creatures.
In this comprehensive follow-up to the widely popular Animal Talk, a respected leader and pioneer in the field of interspecies communication, Penelope Smith, outlines advanced techniques for conversing with animals. She explains that since animals think and perceive differently from humans, readers need to have a true willingness to share, listen, and learn to successfully communicate with them. Although most humans assume that an animal functions on pure instinct, unaware of its own past or future, that’s just not the case. Many subtle secrets about the world can be gleaned from animals once readers know how to see the world through their eyes. Cats, dogs, and other domesticated animals may be more receptive to communicating with humans, but they’re certainly not the only ones with fascinating information to share—Smith shows how humans are also able to speak with roosters, rabbits, insects, llamas, snakes, and many others in the animal kingdom. In addition to chapters devoted to developing and enhancing mind-to-mind communication with animals, When Animals Speak includes an illuminating look at animals as healers, teachers, and guides and even delves into more abstract, advanced forms of interspecies communication, such as contacting spirits of nature. In this accessible book, Smith is sure to delight and instruct animal lovers interested in forging a new bond with animal beings and the natural world.
