Intuitive Pet Games

Who wants to play an intuitive pet game?  Our pets tune in to our thoughts, feelings, emotions, and energy every day. They know what we’re thinking, feeling, and even avoiding! (On a side note, this is why it’s so easy to learn animal communication – because animals are already tapping in to us!

So, with all this time at home, I thought it would be cool to take advantage of our pet’s cool skill – and have some fun!

Here are a couple ways to play the intuitive pet game:


Intuitive Pet Game Excitement version

1: Get yourself into a room with just you and your pet (dog, cat, horse, bunny…)
2: While sitting with your animal, start thinking about something that gets you really, really excited. Happy. Joyous.
3: As you start to feel happy/excited (and make sure you really feel it), don’t “do” anything different. Just FEEL this emotion as big as you can and notice any reaction in your pet (Does she come closer to you? Want to play? Get excited? Turn over and go to sleep?)

Intuitive Pet Game Peaceful Version

1: Sit in a room with your pet,
2. Start calming yourself. Deep breathing or any type of energy management. Feel your emotions calm down – really bring yourself into a clear, stable, energetically peaceful zone.
3: As you start to feel calm/peaceful (and make sure you really feel it – versus just saying you feel it), notice any reaction in your pet (Does she come closer to you? Want to play? Get excited? Turn over and go to sleep?)

Now, obviously, with so much time at home many of us have been unknowingly playing this game through the anxiety/worry versions. Let’s switch it over and do the positive versions now! Share your findings here!

Love and Light,

    I’ve got a pet chicken rescued when she was a chick. She just passed on last week and still grieving and missing her. When she was well, she could sense when I was excited and came by to check out what e excitement was about. When I was sad, she’d sit by me too… when I was calm, she’d be the same too. During the last 2 days she was nit eating or drinking, she allowed me to hold her while she closed her eyes. She’d make soft noises as if to let me know she’s not sleeping and check if I was still with her. Seeing her get worse made me decide to bring her to the vet to let her go. I still miss her terribly and feel guilty for letting her go and kept saying sorry to her. I wonder if she’s angry with me. I can still feel her with me but wonder if it’s just my grief making me feel this way. Sorry for my long post…just wanted to share that chickens are pure and lovely souls.

      Oh I love that! So often, when I do energy management with a group during a webinar, while everyone is getting into the zone, I’m watching all their animals on the webcams go by. They love it!

    This makes perfect sense…I didn’t realize that my baby was pulling a me on me… how cool is that!. I came in from work dragging my tail and he came in laid his head against my leg and just looked worn out……I’m gonna go excite him now and start this game. Thank you!!

    Thank you for sharing this! Actually, I don’t have to be in one room with my cockatiel; he also communicates with me while I am in the shower telling me important things. So recently he told me that we should treat all animals as individuals. This means that a farmer would have to meet the neads of each single cow or pig of his farm – treating all equal is ANIMAL CRUELTY. And conservationists should also be aware of this fact; my cockatiel is a notorious loner who tells me that it was predetermined that he would live with me together. He is absolutely fixed to his room in my house and would not leave it. (He once told me that he would not be interested in life outside my house.) So I can leave windows and doors open – he would not fly away.

    I love this! My cat is in sync with me most of the time. My husband doesn’t understand our bond, but we just understand each other. Now that I know why, I’m going to play these mind games with her! Thanks for sharing this! I always love your blogs and emails!

    I have noticed my cat picking up on stress and anxiety since I have been working from home. Hopefully, Fin will feel the happy and relaxed me too! My dog is not as tuned into me which is the reverse from my previous pets.

      Interesting. I wonder if, perhaps, your dog IS tuned in to you, but just expresses it another way you’re not aware of?

    Wow! I didn’t realize or know this when my pet was alive but if I was sitting quietly, many times my Hanz would come right to me and lay down beside me. ❤️
