Talking in Your Sleep by Animal Communicator, Kathryn Drage

The interesting thing to me about my animal communication practice is that easily 80% of the animals I communicate with I don’t meet in person. The readings I do are mostly from phone calls, email, and pictures or descriptions. Since everything is energy and vibration, the pictures and descriptions given to me about the animal in question form images in my mind’s eye as well as a strong knowingness and physical sensations. From these things a block of thought happens. My job is to find human words for all of these messages in a way that the person I am connecting with can understand.

I would like to share a couple of stories of readings that came to me in ways I had not expected but were very accurate. The reason I would like to share these is to let others know who may be trying to connect and are looking for helpful hints.

Several years ago I was doing a reading via email in which I was sent a picture of a lovely boxer named Jewel. Her humans were primarily concerned about why her eyes were tearing up so much. I was shown in my vibrational reading that her diet needed to change and also that the scented candles in the house were part of the situation. We exchanged emails back and forth several times with questions and answers. I was feeling like something was incomplete and came to realize that the information coming to me was at a time when I was not consciously (big clue!) trying. I was sleeping and at about 2:00 in morning I had a clear vision of Jewel running right up to me and in front of her was a row of household cleaners. She took her right paw and knocked them over like bowling pins. The image was so intense and clear, and my sense of knowing so strong, that I got up at that moment and went to my computer to email Jewel’s people to let them know. In the morning as I was checking my emails, I received an email back from them telling me that it was so amazing that I wrote to them at the time I did, because that was the exact time that Jewel suddenly started running around the house. They said she had never done anything like that before. The household cleaning products were exchanged for more environmentally friendly ones and Jewel’s eyes stopped tearing and were clearer than they have ever been.

This is a wonderful example of getting out of one’s own way. Jewel and I basically met on neutral ground and I am sure that when I was awake I was on some level trying too hard because I was concerned for her and wanted to find the answer. Jewel could sense in our communication that my connection was not as clear to hear her due to this concern, so being the wise young lady that she is, she kept checking in until she saw an opening and gracefully zoomed right in to communicate. When she knew that I clearly understood and would pass on the message…she celebrated!

The other story I would like to share is about learning to pay attention to what you may think is an obscure thought but can actually be the key to the answer you are looking for. About 10 years ago or so I was doing readings in a pet food store. I had a mother and son come to see me and they were asking me numerous questions at a very rapid rate. They later told me that they were checking to see if I was authentic. Well, I satisfied them but it was mostly because of one answer I gave to the question, “What is the name of our dog that passed away?” I must say that I wasn’t excited at the time because the one who wants to come forward in a reading comes forward--there are no assurances. I remember sitting there in the small room with bright white lights doing my best to connect with what vibration was coming my way. The only thing that was coming to me was an image of a sour cream container dancing through my head and then a gentle tune played. “Hmm,” I thought. At first I tried to brush the image away, but when it would not go away, I looked into the eyes of these very close and expectant people, took a deep breath, and said to them that if I had to say anything that I would say that her name was Daisy. They gasped and jumped back in their chairs…”How did you know?”

I didn’t tell them at the time that I had a sour cream container dancing through my head along with the “Dollop of Daisy” commercial tune playing. I still laugh about the wonderfulness of it all and remind myself to keep paying attention to what I think are the obscure thoughts--they are the actual messages. Someone else may have had an image of a dog telling him or her that her name was Daisy, or even an image of being given a daisy, but what I received matches my personality and the message was clear.

To any of you who are trying to communicate and are questioning how to do it or be better at it, I ask that you take these two stories and know there are many ways to receive messages and to trust the effortlessness and ease in which they flow to us.

Thank you as always to the Animal Kingdom for your openness and honesty. Namaste
