Your Animal Communication Glossary

Animals are innately psychic and would love to connect with humans psychically. Animal Communication is the art of learning how to tap in to receive (and give) intuitive messages with animals. Learn more, in depth about what animal communication is here.

An animal communicator (pet psychic, animal intuitive, pet communicator) consciously communicates psychically with animals. Animal Communicators know how to pick up and understand the messages that animals send through intuition. If you’re looking for a reading, go to my list of Certified Animal communicators here.

The Danielle MacKinnon School holds monthly labs. In a lab, students of all levels) plus many of Danielle’s Certified Animal Communicators) play with animal communication together. It’s a great way to learn how other’s work with their intuition.

Some animals communicate psychically through sounds and words. When you’re receiving clairaudient messages, you may “hear” a dog bark, but your dog is no where nearby. If you’re “hearing” your spirit guides, you may hear sounds or even a voice from within your head (although that might be hard to trust sometimes!). Because many of the “sounds” sound similar to our normal life, it can be hard to trust this info! But with practice, you can.

Claircognizance means inner-knowing. Many people receive psychic information in this way, but mistake it for simply being smart. When your guides or an animal want to give you psychic data through claircognizanace, you just suddenly “know” something. You’re not sure where it came from! As a result of all of the pop culture attention, this psychic sense can be harder to trust.

Clairvoyance is probably the most well-known psychic sense as it’s easiest to depict on TV but the word clairvoyance simply means psychic sight. People that are receiving visual information in this way may see a flash of an image or their eye may suddenly be drawn to the exact, most important spot somewhere, for no apparent reason. In animal communication, animals send visuals all the time as do spirit guides.

Animals can send messages psychically to humans using clairsentience. Clairsentience occurs when the person feels the message from the animal in their body or as an emotion. A person who is receiving messages through feeling is also called clairsentient.

Energy Management is the secret ingredient when you want to communicate psychically with animals or connect with your Guides.

Animals are innately intuitive communicators. In fact, it is only because animals are so in psychically in tune with their environment that they are able to move through the world successfully. Learn more about how animals communicate psychically (and what they do with it!) here.

Here at the Danielle MacKinnon School, we define intuition as using innate psychic skills to connect in to the desired being (an animal, your spirit guides etc.) in order to receive information. Every person alive was born psychic however many have shut down their abilities. Our courses in opening the intuition are simply rediscovering that which already exists but has been dormant.

A psychic medium is someone who connects intuitively with humans in spirit (ie your grandmother that has crossed over). Instead, an animal communicator, connects psychically with animals that are alive and also with animals that have crossed over. If you’re interested in connecting with your pet on the other side, you may like this pre-recorded webinar.

Though Soul Level Animal Communication® many people are reconnecting with their pets that have “crossed the rainbow bridge.” Learn more about the Rainbow Bridge.

Communicating with an animal on the physical level is when the animal talks about their body, how they like their food, and if they’re jealous, etc. Soul Level communication is when the animal tells you about how they’re helping you in this lifetime and the lessons they’re hoping to help you with.
