This thought-provoking bat story incident was shared from a friend
As she told me the bat story, she said: “My toddler son witnessed a violent attack upon a bat by some older children. He was extremely upset and wept uncontrollably. As I held and comforted him, I initially mistook his compassion for fear, assuming that he was too young to experience such feelings.
“It was during a quiet dialogue with the tiny boy on my lap that the empathy for animals I had suppressed for many years resurfaced.
The bat story conversation went like this:
My son, “I think I heard the bat cry. Do bats cry?”
“I don’t know. I never thought much about bats.”
“But if we do think about bats, do you think they cry?”
“Yes, I think they might be able to cry.”
“If he did cry, why didn’t anybody help him? When I cry somebody always comes.”
“Well, honey, bats are different than people.”
“How come they’re different? Aren’t they scared when they get beat up?”
“Yes, I’m sure they must be.”
“Then how come nobody came?”
“Well, bats are dirty.”
“If I get dirty, will people beat me up?”
“God, no! You’re not a bat; you’re a person. You’re much smarter than a bat.”
“So if someone isn’t smart, are we supposed to kill him?”
“No, no, we read and speak and think and feel. It’s hard to explain.”
“I think he felt stuff, Mom. He was crying. I know he was crying and, Mom, I can’t read.”
What would it take for us as the single most destructive force on the planet to re-evaluate our relationships to the fellow sentient beings sharing it with us?
In my work as an empathic animal behaviorist, communicator and healer, I often meet animal lovers who want to believe animals really are sentient beings but they aren’t entirely sure and have many questions.
Then there are the many folks who feel skeptical, even hostile, toward the idea that animals can think, feel, reason, and communicate. They view anyone who thinks they can ‘talk’ with other species as wacko! And maybe even dangerous since if it were true that animals are sentient, then they would have to seriously reconsider how they treat (or mistreat) animals and become accountable for their actions.
After all, many humans are still prejudiced toward other human beings who don’t look or talk like us!
For the record:
*I’m not supernatural, whacko or ‘psychic’. I simply use focused guided intuition and the art of telepathy to connect with and listen to animals. Telepathy is what we all use to ‘feel’, ‘sense’ and ‘hear’ those around us. You do this too. We all do it every day whether we are conscious sharing information with focused intent, or unconscious about what we’re sharing. For example, have you ever had a friend who’s close to you bring up the same exact topic or thought that you were just thinking about?
*What good does communicating with animals do? This is not mind control so we can’t force an animal to do what we want them to do. However, solving every problem starts with a conversation and partnering up together as a team. Animal talk is the first step towards resolving behavior problems, training issues, enhancing performance, relieving trauma, exploring health difficulties, and is the best way for them to tell us what they need, want or what’s not working for them.
*It is not my job to change or judge others in any way. I am a mediator and facilitator. I assist and guide you through difficulties or misunderstandings with your animals. It is not my job to fix anyone, only to offer clarity, guidance, respect and support. No one needs fixing. We only ever need understanding, connection and communication to become the best version of ourselves possible, and that goes for our animals too.
*I approach all beings as sentient, intelligent and wise no matter what body their Spirit is wearing. Our primary responsibility is to love ourselves and each other, expressing our love in ways that are supportive and compassionate, speaking our truth with honesty and integrity, with the sole intention of being of service so we can all heal, evolve and grow.
For anyone who wonders how intelligent bats and other animals truly are, let me assure you…
Animals are sentient, intelligent, wise beings. They are Angels, Teachers, Guides and Healers. They think, feel, wonder, and reason, and they certainly have their own viewpoints and beliefs. There is so much we can teach each other when we speak the same language.
Like the toddler who understood the truth of it in the bat story, when we evolve enough to recognize, respect and revere them for who they truly are, they help us heal, evolve and grow and we become better people.
Every animal lover can learn how to communicate with animals! Yes, some students are better than others. Some of us work harder at it than others. With education, practice and guidance, anyone can experience the joy of talking with animals.
Can you imagine what a difference you can make when you know how to talk to animals?
Learning to communicate telepathically helps us better understand the beings that share our lives, expands our understanding about the circle of life and our place in it. And part of the fun of having animal partners in our lives is, after all, sharing life’s experiences from a variety of viewpoints.
