Have you ever watched someone talk to a cat? I don’t mean when it meows at you and you meow back at it, I’m asking if you’ve ever really seen a person have an in-depth conversation with a cat. or any other animal, for that matter. They look ridiculous, right? Probably even a little crazy?
Except…if it’s an animal Empath, they actually are carrying on a conversation with the animal in question. You just can’t understand them.
One of the basics of the empathic gift is the ability to tap into the emotions and feelings of others – usually whether you want to or not. This in and of itself is odd. Why should the ability to connect with animals be any stranger? Because they don’t have emotions and only act on instinct? Sure. Okay. Except for the fact that if you pay enough attention to your pet, you’ll probably notice they do quite a bit that goes directly against their base animal instincts. The stories I could tell you…
But I won’t. We’re talking animal Empaths today, not the abnormal behavior of your neighbor’s cat.
By this point, who hasn’t heard of dog whisperers and horse whisperers? These people make a career out of quieting the nerves of animals who’ve been spooked for whatever reason. Should it really come as a surprise that these people are animal Empaths, even if they don’t advertise it?
Think about it. “Whisperer” sounds elemental, like something you’d find existing in nature with the animals in the first place; “Empath” sounds like something the strange fortune teller named Wind who lives down the street would say.
Now, I won’t say that EVERY person you see carrying on a conversation with an animal is an animal Empath. I’m sure some of them are certifiably looney tunes. On the other hand, there are those who can be so tuned into an animal that understanding the animals unique language of sounds is a natural extension of their empathic gift.
What do you think? Are you an animal Empath or do you know one? I may not be one, but I sure do know one and, I’ve got to say, it’s a very cool thing to witness…when the person isn’t a wacko who’s pretending, that is.
