Feeling strong emotions in animal communication can be overwhelming
“Sometimes when I connect with animals I feel a profound sadness and even start to cry. I can’t communicate very well yet to discuss this with them. How can I handle these feelings with more grace and ease? I have never yet felt joy from them to balance out the pain.”
If you also struggle with feeling painful emotions or have difficulty communicating with animals clearly or competently, then here’s what to do.
First, focus on healing your feelings. Because if you’ve not done your inner healing and are overly full of your own painful emotions, then there isn’t enough “inner space” to feel anything else from the animals.
Even if they are sending you joy, you cannot feel it. You block it.
You’re so full of your own overwhelming pains, fears, or other strong emotions that you cannot begin to sort out what is yours, and what isn’t.
This is a classic example of what happens when you try to communicate without doing your inner healing to sort out your emotions and find your inner peace. It’s also why in the Heart Wisdom Method and Heart School of Animal Communication we focus so much of healing feelings.
There’s so much more to communicating competently than just learning a few steps, psychic techniques, and tips to use one or two of your intuitive abilities.
It’s why I teach that you must focus on doing your inner healing, but only IF you want to become a competent, proficient communicator.
Because if you don’t?
Then what you feel will trigger you, you’ll misinterpret the animal’s messages through the filter of your wounds, and you’ll misunderstand or project your feelings and thoughts onto others.
This is the KEY difference between the Heart Wisdom Methods of communication and other teacher’s courses and workshops, and one of the things that makes my training unique.
In case you’re wondering…
The other things that make my training known as the Heart Wisdom Method unique is the wide variety and scope of educational experiences all designed to broaden and improve your intuitive abilities so you become an uncommonly excellent, proficient communicator. 😉
Because there’s the thing about communicating accurately and feeling emotions properly
Your goal when you communicate should be to become fully present, able to feel whatever emotions animals need to share with you, achieve stillness in your mind so you can know what they are thinking and feeling, and in using ALL your intuitive abilities which go way beyond the basic “clairs“.
It’s also why I say that training with me is a spiritual journey.
It’s about healing, evolving, and growing into your best self.
After all, animals aren’t just animals.
They are teachers, angels, guides, healers, guardians, soulmates, and they are not in your life by accident.
They have a purpose.
They are God’s gifts on loan to you.
If you feel sadness and cry when you attempt to connect and aren’t able to feel any emotions other than sadness?
You can be sure that there are 2 main reasons for it.
The first reason you feel sad or teary could be because…
The animal may feel sadness and is sharing the emotion with you.
Once shared, if you receive the emotion properly, communicate, and understand what they need to say, the stories they need to tell, then the emotion will shift and change.
This is always true because animals don’t hold onto emotions once they have released them.
We are supposed to do that too, only we humans often get stuck in the painful experience(s) and don’t know how to move on or release them.
So we suppress the emotions until we cannot ignore them anymore.
Then like a pile of trash that’s been swept under the carpet we start tripping over it, especially if we just keep sweeping more trash under the carpet… before you know it you can barely walk around with tripping or stumbling.
It’s like stuffing too many skeletons in the closet and then when you try opening the door, they all fall out.
So, when you try to communicate with animals it’s like opening the door and ALL the suppressed hidden painful emotions jump out.
Emotions or Feelings are defined as “energy in motion”.
Feelings (emotions) follow thoughts.
Animals can and do feel a wide range of emotions, which can often change very quickly once acknowledged, heard, and released.
That’s part of the healing journey.
If you cannot be fully present with them no matter what emotions are being emoted, or you have trouble staying connected…
Then YOU are the one that is stuck, not them.
Be aware of the stories your thoughts are telling you, and try changing the story. Then notice what the feelings do, because they will change with the story too.
If you can stay present with them no matter what thoughts or feelings are being shared or experienced, even if you have tears?
That’s a good thing, keep going, keep feeling, and stay engaged in the conversation.
And that leads me to the second reason this could be happening:
The sadness or other strong emotions are YOURS, not the animals.
You cannot move beyond it until you heal the wound(s).
To communicate properly and competently, you must be able to FEEL.
If every time you shift out of your head/mind and into a feeling state you cry and feel pain, and that’s all you can feel…?
That’s because you are full of unexpressed, unreleased, and most likely suppressed pain.
Then when you shift to focus on feelings so you can communicate?
There isn’t any room to feel any other emotions.
Whatever other feelings or emotions the animals want to share with you are then ignored, glossed over, blocked, unacknowledged or misunderstood through the filter of your own wounds.
Same holds true for thoughts.
If you cannot get past the painful trauma drama stories in your head, then you won’t be able to hear anyone else’s thoughts clearly.
And whatever they say that you can hear or receive?
You’ll interpret it through the filter of your own inner wounds and projections so you’ll struggle with accuracy and confidence.
Is it possible to heal so you can feel other emotions when you connect to communicate with animals?
YES. You just need to heal your inner wounds so you can be present with the animals feelings.
Healing feelings and coaching students to find peace and communicate so you can feel any emotions depending on what needs to be known or felts is my specialty in private work and why I so often teach and share my proprietary healing methods with students.
Can you communicate even if you feel tears or your own strong emotions or haven’t fully healed?
YES. To be clear, you do not need to be 100% healed to communicate.
When your mindset is right, EVERY communication and every feeling you experience can help you heal, the animals will show you where you are still stuck, and give you opportunities to evolve and grow.
I know because when this was my experience too.
When I started communicating back in 1993, I was so conflicted with a lifetime full of unhealed emotional, physical, and mental wounds that every time I connected with animals I cried.
Every. Single. Time.
It wasn’t just sadness or pain that overwhelmed me.
After years of abuse, I was terrified of all conflict, I ran away from angry people, and cringed in the face of other strong, overwhelming emotions.
It took me awhile to heal enough that the automatic tears stopped, although I do still cry occasionally when a strong emotion resonates deeply during a communication.
Now, I can stay fully present no matter what is going on or what emotions are being shared or expressed.
I recognize when an emotion within me is triggered and I do my healing to clear it.
I can feel what other’s feel honestly, vulnerably, and I can continue to guide the conversation in the direction it needs to go for the highest best good for all concerned, and why I can get the best results possible.
Learning HOW to do that, the right ways – the most powerful and efficient techniques – to heal, is the important part of our Soul’s Journey.
