Notes: As cavemen, we had thoughts and the same complexity than now, but we didn't have language – animals think that way too. When you have a memory of something, you see an image (like a house or door) before you put the words on it (red, blue, etc.). Feelings come from thoughts, even if sometimes we're not aware of the thought. Subconscious level that makes us react some ways (conditioning). All of our senses are actually part of our communication too.
Animals do understand some words.
Dogs memorize an event and react about it - or you would never have nervous dogs (like around other dogs, for example). So they don't just live in the moment, because they think and feel and have logic. Animals worry; they get anxious; they can get upset.
We pick up on the dogs's feelings when they're scared/anxious and snarl and everything. That fear in animals can make people frustrated – and that frustration makes the animal even more afraid. They need to know that people are trustworthy --> peaceful mindset = he's not reacting, he's not giving me that feeling.
If you're going to feel another being, your mind must be quietness; that's the concept of animal communication. When you're present = you're not thinking about anything else = suddenly there's no distinction between you, the ground, your surroundings – you become one with it, you become part of it. => the present moment is truthful, because in reality there is unification. But thoughts produce separation; we become egos. When we become present, we become much closer, everything becomes more unified.
Quiet mind, put your attention to them, ask a question. The key is to have a quiet mind; reduce your thinking very quickly > being (rather than thinking). When you're thinking around someone, you might not even notice them. Quiet mind around an animal (you get from ten to 1 in your mind) = you will feel them.
How you feel determines your body's language and what your tone of voice is like. We feel something before we put it into words. We express our feelings through words, and the person hearing the words relate to their own feelings, which can be a problem. You have to listen to the feeling, rather than the words alone, when you're working between an animal and a human. Animals feel us directly, not twisting the feelings through words.
When you first put your attention to an animal, with a quiet mind, there is always a feeling there (then we ask questions for details, but there is always a baseline feeling); if you cannot feel it, the first thing you should say to yourself is 'Ooh, this is sensitive, how can I best describe that feeling?', and you keep your attention to the animal when you ask that question. If you go 'Oh my God I can't do this because something didn't come up straight away', your attention is no longer with the animal, it's with you, so you're only feeling you. If you think a lot, it will come straight back to you. How can I describe that feeling physically? That will bring their physical state to you.
How do we translate? A raw feeling will come to you, and your mind will interpret it in the best way for you to understand that. If you let your mind sort it out for you, it will work very smoothly. How can I best describe that feeling? How can I best describe that animal physically? All that matters is not the 'how it works', but that you keep your attention to that feeling and ask 'How can I best describe that feeling?'. There's more details in feelings (that will appear translated in different ways depending on the person) than words.
