    Do you have an intuitive animal? Have you ever felt that your animal knows exactly what you are thinking? Do you believe animals are psychic?

      I believe they do. I have two border collies, and they amaze me everyday. I can look at them without saying a thing, and they will run into my heard of 5000 sheep and bring out the ram in a matter of minutes, plus my female dog emma, will fetch me a beer from the fridge when I give here the thumbs up.
         Other things they know emotions, like when where driving along and I get upset at something they automatically come and put there paws on my shoulders untill there relaxed. Animals where here before us, were the ones that should be listening and watching them. Like ants, when the weather changes and rains coming they cover their hole to there mound. Amazing.

      animals sense vibrations which is what each human being gives off with our emotions. how many times have you thought or said,
      that guy gives off bad energy??  or you feel especially happy while in someones presence?

      we live in a world we cannot 'see'!! wink

      definitely and please note that the use of alternative or psychic work can work with animals too. I can sense the vibration or energy of different breeds - and you can connect to animals for their healing too. I have tested a technique from the book Hands of Light by barbara brennan and it really worked... great on humans too!!!

      Hi there.
      That is a good question.Yes,i do think animals are psychic.
      See one of my hubs called psychic moments.It wasnt what i would call psychic but more a level of 'soul' connectedness.
      Thanks for the forum.

      I had two german shepherds that were full blooded brother and sister from different litters.

      The male became ill and needed a cancer operation; unfortunately he died during the operation. At the exact time he died, his sister, miles away at our home, started to whine and carry on. She ran all over the yard looking for him. She even checked out an old kennel that they hadn't been kept in for years.

      A sad story but also very curious. How did she know?

    I think that animals are aware of things that we people ignore. An animal can 'see' that a person is trouble, or dangerous when a person can't. An animal, especially a pet, can tell if you are upset or sad. Animals react by instinct, while we react to obvious physical behaviors.

      Very good observation.This is quite a jump but please bare with me.
      Some Cymbalists believe the story of Adam and Eve is the point in evolution at which man became self aware evidenced by Adams realization that he was naked(there's a really good joke here but I'll spare you).
      Some animals appear to have senses that we do not.Perhaps there are many different types of awareness.I'm sure someone is studying this.
      If anyone has info I would appreciate it.

    I agree with Dolores. But I also believe that animals see what we can't see in the sense of spirits and entities.

    Yep... My Frog.. Perhaps a recycled soul. hmm

    Clearly many animals appear to us as being intuitive. Many things that give that appearence come from their natural evolutionary traits.

    As far as being psychic is concerned: Doesn't that have something to do with how they always know when it's feed time? hmm

    I definitely think that animals can sense things that we can't. Actually, dogs are sometimes able to tell when a person with epilepsy is about to have a seizure. And then, of course, animals usually start acting oddly before an earthquake hits. We live in NY so we haven't experienced this much, but I remember our late cat Dusty once began going nuts. He was yowling and running around and around in circles, and he was usually a pretty mellow guy. The next day, the news reported that around that time there had been a minor earthquake in the Tri-State area near CT.

    As for animals and entities, I imagine that they would be in tune to things like that. Sometimes my cat, Maya, will suddenly start meowing at the ceiling or at the wall, for no apparent reason. I've wondered if she was seeing something!

    Natural Medicineposted 13 years ago

    I think the more 'in tune' with your pet you are.....the more they can sense things about you. I've got a female dog that's now 11 years old. I can hand sign a few things to her and she understands. When I talk to her you'd swear she knows exactly what I said. There's about 10 key words I have, and if I use them I'd better be ready to follow through, as all my 3 dogs start going crazy & would be disappointed if I didn't.

    The new one is 'just a minute'. LOL. I use that one when they're scampering about and bugging the heck out of me, which means they either want to go outside or want me to play with them or want me to feed them. As soon as I say 'just a minute', they'll change and get ready by either going to the door (to go outside), going to the kitchen (to be fed), or going to the living room & start play/growling with each other (to get me to play with them).

    Thank you everyone for responding. I have four dogs. Yes, I am crazy about black poodles. My three biggest are standards. They are not the fluffy type. The biggest is 100 pounds. Can you believe that? She is the fatest and most loving girl I have every known. She was a rescue who was starved. Now, she eats everything in sight. I have to watch her to keep her from gaining more. Well, maybe she is part lab. I have her puppy too.

    My baby dog is intuitive but she can't spell big_smile, we have to spell certain words around her, like ball, walk, run...

    When my hubby is on travel, she automatically goes to my room, sleeps on his side of the bed & drools on his pillow...she knows he is gone and she knows a good thing - a big ole bed to stretch out on big_smile

    I just love poodles.  I have a toy one.  She is very empathetic and knows when I am upset.

    My miniature schnauzer seems to be able to keep track of me.... sometimes a little too well.  I have a dog door right off the kitchen, and she can be outside barking at the dog on the corner lot, or looking at something with fascination, but just let me finish up doing my dishes and prepare to go to the other room, and she stops what she is doing and comes back in.  How does she sense that?

    I have two cats and when I'm not feeling well they don't leave my side so yes I think animals are very intuitive, probably more so than people since they actually pay attention to things we miss.

    They are currently training dogs to be able to detect insulin drops in diabetics. Apparently dogs can sense or smell a change in a persons body.

    That's pretty crazy awesome, why not the next step?

    For Intuition/ or Psychicness : I know that my dog always knows when we are going on a trip...even before we start packing!

    When it comes to spirits and entities:

    I've seen horses turn and move like something went by them....when nothing was around. I have seen the same thing when dogs turn and look straight at something....that isn't there. Don't know what it was. Even seen them look like they are looking right at something...while barking their head off and with the fur on their neck standing up! Chances are very high that they just saw something. At least in my book!

    Definately. The more you learn to communicate with them, the more you notice how much skill animals have and what they tell you. Animal communication takes place through picture flashes.
    I have communicated with many animals using this technique and it mostly works better than verbal communication.

    It is said that every type of communication starts with a picture flash before the actual thought, most of the time we don´t observe the mental picture we produce but animals do.

    I have often wondered how this works for people and animals that are blind from birth and don´t have picture memories.
    It seems there could be another kind of communicative sense animals use.

      as far as I understand, those other senses would be heightened in an animal or human who lacks a certain sense. animals such even their whiskers to sense, the pads of their feet.

      I once read about a herd of elephants who acted distressed at the moment when an elephants 20 miles away was shot, they can communicate through infrasounds as we can communicate orally through wavelengths and hear sounds. it's really quite amazing how life works, and we find out more and more each day.

    I do think so as my cockatiel, Leigha is such a great pet. She knows when it's time to get back into her cage cause i have to go out somewhere. Just yesterday I got up late and let her out while getting breakfast, and my things together. While i was in my room getting ready I said out loud , "Leigha, i have to go out please get back into your cage as I know you are a good girl".

    And to my surprise when I walked past the den room sure enough she was back in her cage ...What a sweet heart. My best friend and companion, and kid! living at home...LOL

    I don't know if It's "proper" to post after so many hours of inactivity, but I have to say that my Indian Ringneck Parakeet was incredibly intuitive. He knew when the phone would ring, when someone was about to ring the doorbell and most importantly (to me) when I was sad and needed a little TLC.

    I believe that dogs smell and react to hormonal changes in people, which can make them appear to be psychic when it comes to human emotions.

    An example: I live in Oakland (not the safest city in the world), and am accustomed to being hit on basically every time I walk down the street.  One night, I was walking Vivi and a man got out of his car and started to approach me with a pickup line.  I brushed him off, annoyed, but not afraid... but he was not to be discouraged, and continued to come closer to me.  I started to get scared, and as soon as I did, Vivi, who had been happily sniffing some grass, immediately got between me and the guy, and started barking her head off.  She's only 12 lbs, and not very frightening-looking, but the fella was so startled that it gave me a chance to hustle away.

    My sister is one whose dog always knew when she was about to have a seizure - even before my sister knew herself. It gave her time to make sure someone was nearby and to go to a safe place.

    Our Cockers sense many things one time our male Cocker kept barking and barking he was about 9 months old, of course I was getting irritated but when I looked over the wall at our neighbors yard there planter was on fire! Apparently our neighbor put his cigarette out in there and the wood chips ignited. Needless to say I ran out the front door and through their RV gate and put it out. He warned us of danger. Our Cockers also know quite a few words and I swear they know exactly what we are saying in fact I know that they are aware of our discussions. smile Our male Cocker will look you up and down it is so odd his eyes actually move in an up and down motion!!! lollolo smile

    Animals can definitely sense things that we are not aware of that are happening. A great example is when that earthquake hit last year in the US even though I was located roughly I think 300 or so miles from it my dogs would not settle down that entire night or the day prior. After the earthquake though they were calm as ever and didn't even make a peep that night.

    When I had a dog I had about ten seconds from the time I woke up to the time he was licking my face and expecting a walk. Pretense was no good. Lying still was no good. Conscientiousness = walk time.

    Psychic or not, he knew what was happening.
