~HOW TO TALK TO YOUR PETS: Animal Communication for Dogs, Cats, & Other Critters~
“How to Talk to Your Pets: Animal Communication for Dogs, Cats, & Other Critters”
MBA&M: Please give our readers a bit of insight into the life of Gail Thackray?
GAIL: I was completely normal until I reached forty and then I suddenly woke up and was able to do weird freaky stuff. LOL. Some people go through a mid-life crisis, I discovered I was a medium and able to speak with people’s loved ones on the other side. It was a while after that I realized I could talk to animals too. Animals in spirit and it works the same way for ones that are still alive. It took me a few years though to really believe it but my life changed forever. I am originally from England and I live in California with my many lovely critters.
MBA&M: What was your inspiration behind writing “How to Talk to Your Pets: Animal Communication for Dogs, Cats, & Other Critters”?
GAIL: I knew that we could all do this. I thought if I could do it, anyone can. This was something I desperately wanted to share with the world. Teaching others, to me was the largest impact I could have on helping animals. If we all learned how to communicate with animals the world would be a much better place. I believe many animals helped me to write this book and are helping me to get the word out.
MBA&M: We understand you are a pet communicator, where did you get your training,how hard is it really to communicate to your Pets?
GAIL: We all have this inherent ability to communicate telepathically and we naturally do it with our animals. Its not about learning how to do this, its about learning to remove the blocks that tell you that you can’t. In my book we do a lot of exercises to trick you into getting out of your mind and starting to communicate without trying so hard. Most people are able to do this just after reading my book.
MBA&M: Can you share some of your tips with our readers, to help us communicate with our Pets?
GAIL: It is always easier to try with someone else’s animal first. That way you can get feedback to see if you are correct. We know our animals too well and so at first we will think we are just making things up. Starting by using a photo of an animal is a great way.
n Get quiet. You must take the time to quiet your mind in a place where you won’t be disturbed and we do mediation exercises in my book.
n We communicate with love. Through breathing and meditation we need to get into a place of pure love and a connection with your animal.
n Just talk to your animal like they understand you. They do, they hear everything, we just have a hard time hearing them back.
n Take the first thing that passes into your mind. Don’t think “That’s silly” or double guess yourself. The messages come very quickly.
n Start with easy questions such as “What’s our favorite treat?” Don’t jump right in to “Why are you peeing on the bedroom floor?”
n Be careful what you think. Animals pick up on our thoughts and emotions which may be different from what you are actually saying.
n We have different senses, some of us feel more, some visualize more and some hear messages. You will find over time you are stronger in one area than another.
MBA&M: What are some behavioral problems with our pets, that may be easily corrected and how can we correct them?
GAIL: If your animal is doing something they would not normally do, ask first what have you changed in yourself or your environment. Often they are trying to get our attention about something we are doing. Sometimes when we just understand the issue, it resolves. Sometimes we can offer a bribe of something they like; their favorite treat or to spend more one on one time with them.
MBA&M: Do you own many pets,do you have rescue Pets,and do you recommend rescue pets as a good choice of pet? If not can you tell our readers why?
GAIL: I have a lot of pets and mine are almost always rescues. I am lucky enough to have a ranch where I can have many lovely critters with me. Right now I have 7 dogs, 2 cats, 5 horses, chickens and more. They usually find me. I don’t go looking for them. I love rescues and I wish I could take them all. They are just so grateful and loving and they come into our life to help us in so many ways but more than anything to teach us love.
MBA&M: What do you feel is the most challenging thing to change or correct with a pet?
GAIL: Some behaviors are instinctual, such as barking. Even if they want to try to stop it’s a habit and it “comes over” them in the moment. But even then, they will usually agree to try their best to stop and it makes a big difference. But many behaviors, anxiety, peeing on the carpet, digging, biting can be resolved simply by understanding them. Nine times out of ten, it is something we need to change to resolve the matter. It is almost always our “behavioral problem” not theirs!
MBA&M: What is your next project?
GAIL: I was firstly a medium and a healer and I believe that when you open up to the spirit world it is all encompassing it is not just one talent or another. I do many workshops and lectures and I love to work with other’s finding that thing that makes them click. Turning on that light bulb that makes them open up spiritually. Right now, I am shooting a travel series Gail Thackray’s Spiritual Journeys going to different spiritual places to experience the energy and see what insights we can gain from them; http://www.youtube.com/gailthackray
