Tag Archives: Telepathic Animal Communication


I am so excited to tell you all about the very first International Animal Communication and Animal Healing Conference that we, Elaine Downs and Sue Reid of Animal Matters, together with Julie Lines of Voice of the Animals have organised. It is called “Awakening To Animals – Bridging New Science and Animal Spirituality”
The conference is being held at the Low Wood Bay Hotel, Ambleside Road, Windermere, Lake District, Cumbria, on the 17th/18th March 2012.
The conference’s overall theme is “Equality for All Life”. Its aim is to explore the latest developments in scientific understanding and spirituality, centered around animals.
Don’t worry it isn’t going to be a boring dry type of conference. Not when we have speakers like, Amelia Kinkade, International Animal Communicator, Linda Tucker, Founder of the Global White Lion Protection Trust, Margrit Coates, world renowned animal healer and communicator, and Richard DeBoo, Co-Founder of the Animals Count Political Party, to name but a few.
These amazing presenters are going to be talking about their latest work and research around the central theme of “Equality For All Life”. They will also be talking about and demonstrating by the content of their presentations, their understanding of Quantum Physics and animal spirituality in relation to animal communication, animal healing, animal intelligence, and animal emotions.
Julie, Sue and I intend this to be the first conference of this kind. We will be organising one on an annual basis.
I don’t want to say too much more at this stage, except to say that tickets are selling fast. So, if I have whet your appetite, please visit our conference website at: http://www.awakeningtoanimals.com and buy your ticket now. I can promise you that you won’t be disappointed. It is going to be a fabulous weekend in beautiful high class surroundings with like minded animal lovers just like you. Visit our website for the "Awakening To Animals" Conference. Organised by Elaine Downs and Sue Reid of Animal Matters, and Julie Lines of Voice Of The Animals.


Benson Downs-Reid. Our very wise Shih Tzu. Who has helped us to improve our intuitive communication with animals. Benson is one of our shining stars in the Animal Matters Teaching Team.

I asked my Shih-Tzu Benson for a message to give to our Advanced Animal Communication students. This is what he channelled to me:

“I have been waiting for the opportunity to talk to you about this for a very long time.
We are here because we choose to be. We have been spiritual long before man even understood the meaning of the word. We have come to show you the way, to enlighten you, and to help you. All beings on earth are equal, and everything in the universe is inter-connected. Humans are only beginning to realise this now; this has been so since the beginning of time.
Animal Communication is the everyday way to learn about Quantum Physics, we are all Quantum Physics in action. People need to look deep into their soul to find their truth. We animals have come to help you do this.
There is nothing that moves the human heart more than watching animals and nature go about their daily business, it is all so natural and uncomplicated. If you care to look, you will see how your life should be. If you observe us closely, you will learn about the important things in life. We do what we need to do and then move on, we don’t dwell on the things that happen in our world, we love the simple things in life, you should too. If you watched us and learned from what we do, your human world would be so much simpler, and life so much easier.
We are your equals, by treating us as anything less, you are devaluing yourselves, you are refusing to acknowledge the inter-connectedness of all living things. We have much to learn from each other. We are ready and willing, but are some of you?
Elaine: “How do we get ready and willing?”
Benson: “Open your heart and open your ears. Use your heart as your guidance system. When you hear things all around you during the day, ask your heart what is true from all that information. Keep what feels true close to you, discard the rest.
Don’t be afraid to follow your intuition. We animals know intuitively the difference between right and wrong, and we act on it. Humans generally do not do this, as their ego gets in the way and takes control.

If you all listen to yourselves, your heart, your intuition, you will not go far wrong. Do not worry about what others say or do – they are not you. Be true to yourself only. When you observe animals, you will see that we do what we want or need to do at any given time. We do not worry about what others say and think, we just act. Watch us, and you’ll see how it’s done.

FEAR IS A KILLER. Do not allow fear to stifle the light within you that is really you. Sometimes we animals know fear, but, we quickly come back into balance. Humans need to learn about balance. You are not very good at that, are you? Generally just careering along without any thought for the consequences.
Mother Nature generally has to bring back her own balance, which is not always pleasant for humans. If you all lived your lives with more consideration for every other living thing around you, Mother Nature would not need to be so extreme in re-balancing the planet. We animals, domestic and wild, work with Mother Nature all the time, as we are part of her, as are you.

Which brings us to our next job, of healing. We spend much of our life trying to help heal humans. This is necessary, as they do not “live in the now”. You all spend so much time worrying about materialism and things you can’t change, whether in the past or the future. You can make your own future, your own day, by your thoughts and your actions. Try to be more positive – be grateful for the good things in your lives, then focus on those. The more you focus on the good, the more grateful you are, and the more good things will happen, then our need to heal you may not be as great.

We love and respect you all for who you are. Please do the same for us. We do not judge you, we allow you to make mistakes. We don’t hold it against you – after all you’re only human. Try doing that with all your animals and your human friends, and see how you feel, and how they feel.

We all have so much to teach and you all have so much to learn. That’s all for now. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to speak to you. Please pass this message on to all those who will listen.

Au Revoir!!! I will speak with you again in the future.”



Tot the Sheepdog. Who is a very clever teacher indeed. One of Sue Reid and Elaine Downs of Animal Matters clients.        client
We attended a Social Media Course at the weekend which was held on a friend’s sheep farm. I know, a strange place to hold a Social Media Workshop, at least it wasn’t held in a field. It was actually held in a fabulous building on the farm called Shepherds Barn.
Anyway I digress. Whilst we were there we met our friend Michelle’s fabulous Sheep Dog who is called Tot. We were very excited to meet Tot as although we have worked with him telepathically several times, this was the first time we had actually met him in the flesh so to speak!! At the end of the day, we were all sat around the table chatting when Michelle told us the story of how Justine (our Social Media Instructor for the day) had tried to get Tot to herd some sheep for her. Justine had given him the commands and Tot ignored her, so Justine tried again, and again Tot ignore her. At this point Michelle said to Justine “Tot is taking the mickey out of you, give the command like you mean it.” So Justine tried once more unsuccessfully, again Michelle said, “He’s really taking the mickey now!” At his point Justine really put some authority into her voice and Tot did as he was asked.
This conversation started me thinking. Quite often we are so quick to think the negative of our animal’s actions, me included sometimes! What was Tot really doing? Was he taking the mickey, or was he not reacting because he wasn’t used to working with Justine, or was it that Tot was teaching Justine to step into her own power and use authority in her voice when the situation calls for it. I’ll let you decide. But, my point is that we should stop and think before assuming that our dogs are acting in a negative way. They may simply be trying to show or teach us something. Thank you Tot.

The Tail of the Traumatised pony

A few weeks ago, we were asked by a friend of ours, who also happens to be the Practice Manager at our local vets, to call up to the stables where her two beautiful ponies, Tiny and Niggy live.

She told us how a little while ago, some children had broken into Tiny and Niggy’s stable one night, and as a result of this Tiny was extremely traumatised. The lady told us that Tiny won’t approach her anymore, and when he comes in from the field at night he walks behind her and not up to her as he used to do before this incident. She also said that now when she goes to his stable door Tiny backs away from her and turns to stand facing the fat corner. The lady finds this extremely upsetting, as before the incident, Tiny would always approach her, whether that was outside or inside his stable. She realised as a result of Tiny’s changed behaviour how traumatised he was.

We stood near the boys stable as they were brought in for the night, and just as she had told us, Tiny gave us all a wide berth and walked into the stable behind her. Once he had gone into his stable, he headed straight for the far corner and wouldn’t come near us. Niggy on the other hand didn’t seem bothered, he was much more interested in what food we had for him!!

So, I stood just outside of Tiny’s stable door and sent him some Reiki healing, whilst he told me a little bit about what had gone on the night the stable was broken into, and also about his aches and pains, and his dislike of the garlic that his mother insisted on putting in his feed bucket!! (His words not mine).

As I was doing this, Sue was sat on the floor just inside the stable door, holding a carrot and some mints for Tiny to take as he felt like it. It took a while but, eventually Tiny decided that the carrots and mints were a good idea after all, better than that garlic!!

At the same time as feeding Tiny treats, Sue was also quietly doing some Hopponopono (an ancient form of Hawaiin healing).

After about an hour, we decided that we’d done enough for one day, and as we started to close Tiny’s stable door, he approached it for the first time in about two weeks, and I felt a huge feeling of fear and sadness, so much so that it brought tears to my eyes.

But, rather than thinking that this was Tiny letting me know how he was still feeling, something inside me knew that this was Tiny actually releasing those feelings which he’d had pent up inside him since the incident.

A couple of days later I got a phone call from Tiny’s person, who proceeded to tell me that he was virtually back to normal. He would approach her when he left the field, he didn’t stand facing the corner of the stable anymore, and he would approach the stable door when she came up to the door. She was so happy that she had her little Shetland pony back, and she told me yesterday that he was getting better and better everyday.

Thank you Tiny for allowing us to help you.
