Friday, November 22, 2013 from 6:45 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. at Lecture Hall 206 D, F – Manifesting Abundance Workshop (free with a $15 weekend lecture pass to the show)
Saturday, November 23, 2013 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Lecture Hall 206 D, F – Mediumship and Healing Demonstration (free with a $15 weekend lecture pass to the show)
I had the chance to ask Gail about animal communication in an email interview:
LB: When you communicate with animals, how do you establish a connection with them?
GT: We connect by telepathy. You would need to be very quiet and spend the time with them to quiet their mind. I prefer to start with other people’s photos rather than our own animals. Using a photo is a great way to start. Look into their eyes and feel a connection through their heart. Allow messages to flow over you and take the first thing that pops into your head.
LB: How do you “hear” their responses? Do you hear their responses in your head?
GT: Yes, it is like a thought that comes to you. Sometimes it is not something you would normally think of, but it feels just like your own thought. Go with the first thing that comes to mind and do not second guess it.
LB: What is the most extraordinary thing an animal told you?
GT: I went to a fancy dinner party and the host asked me to read their dog. I started with “What’s your favorite treat?” thinking that would be quiet generic. The dog said “Yummy sweaty socks!”
LB: Are animals prescient?
GT: Absolutely. They are much more in tune than we are. They know what is in our future. They are much more connected to a universal consciousness.
LB: Do animals understand us better than we understand them?
GT: They understand everything we think and feel but we have a hard time hearing them back.
LB: Why do animals come into our lives? Or perhaps I should say why are we motivated to get animals as pets? What can they teach us?
GT: They come as our partners, often with a specific role. They could come into our lives particularly to help us with a health issue or to take away our stress. They help us much more than we know!
LB: Is there one common thing you hear from pets that owners do that they should stop doing? It’s frustrating for animal owners when their pets become ill and they don’t know what the problem is. How can we find out the reasons for our pets’ sicknesses?
GT: More often than not when an animal gets sick, it is something around our energy. They help to heal us and as often they will mimic our energy and actually take on our ailments.
To experience Gail’s ability, I asked her about my brother’s dog, Zeffie, who had recently gone blind and I forwarded her two pictures of Zeffie. Gail advised me that Zeffie communicated about some transitions in the family and that his purpose was to help family members through these transitions and not to worry about his blindness since dogs don’t live as long as people and their eyes go sooner.
