Nov 2013 Developing mindfulness meditation can help you become more aware of subtle levels of communication that are going on. Here is an example of some people who have the ability to communicate with animals in a way most people do not, through tuning in to a different level of awareness. This film ‘The Animal Communicator” highlights some modern Westerners who have learned this ability as well as people from traditional communities that have lived close to nature for generations. Interesting to consider– stretch your idea of what is possible. Buddhist teaching is that we should respect life and avoid harming all forms of life, including animals.
