Your psychic abilities are not only alive in your mind. There are many people who believe that pets and other animals also have psychic talents. You may have heard stories about animals knowing a hurricane was approaching long before a meteorologist could predict it, or you may have read mystery novels that center on cats that help solve the caper.
There are many theories that basically state that being in the presence of psychic behavior increases it for you. Many people believe that animals have a more finely-tuned sensitivity to their psychic powers.
Author Rupert Sheldrake believes that pets exhibit abilities similar to your psychic abilities. If you have ever experienced an indoor pet greeting you when you arrive home, you might have been witnessing your four-legged friend’s telepathic prowess. Sheldrake attributes this telepathy to the strong, loving bond created between a pet and its owner. While some of the instances Sheldrake outlines can be attributed to cues the pet owner is unaware that he’s giving, other examples are much more convincing.
Think of lost pets that have made long journeys to return home. An Australian cat recently made international news after having traveled thousands of miles to be reunited with its family. This cat is an example of a number of psychic abilities, such as intuition and even telepathy.
Animal psychology is a difficult study to explain. Many attribute a bird’s migratory pattern to instinct, but, like the cat in Australia mentioned above, this could be a combination of instinct, telepathy, and it can even be argued that the birds are tapping into the collective unconscious of the species.
Returning to the common legend of dogs predicting earthquakes, Sheldrake discusses animal premonitions. Another common version of premonition in household pets is their ability to foresee epileptic seizures. It is not only dogs and cats that are sensitive to oncoming epilepsy, but, according to certain studies, rabbits as well. While we really have no concrete ideas about how your psychic pets use their abilities, bonding with your pet is said to help increase its psychic abilities.
While your pet may not be able to speak with you, a mixture of cues you give and telepathy make for a unique form of communication that any pet owner will be very familiar with. Even if you do not actively experience your pet’s psychic abilities, being in the presence of them is bound to help you develop your psychic talents.
