New Science Says Your Dog Can Understand

dogincar(1)A new study published in the journal Cell, by Victoria Ratcliffe and David Reby, should lend some relief to dog owners who enjoy talking with their pets. The new research indicates that if you are one of them: you’re probably not as crazy as your friends sometimes like to joke about.

The study found that dogs actually interpret human speech in much the same way you or I do: by putting sounds together into coherent words (so interpretation based on meaning) using the left hemisphere, and figuring out the emotions and gender of the speaker using the right hemisphere. This did this by playing sound clips that varied in terms of content and sound, evaluating the dogs’ responses based on which direction their heads turned when responding to the recorded messages.

The study found that dogs showed a significant LH bias when presented with a familiar spoken command in which the salience of meaningful phonemic (segmental) cues was artificially increased but a significant RH bias in response to commands in which the salience of intonational or speaker-related (suprasegmental) vocal cues was increased. In other words, the study found that the dogs were far more likely to turn left when hearing a familiar cue, but more likely to turn right when the sounds didn’t add up: much like you or I.

This isn’t the biggest surprise, and in fact it’s something most animal lovers have “known” for quite a long time. It provides further evidence for the theory that our animal companions are capable of understanding more than a simple Pavlovian connection between a bell and food. Indeed this new research helps emphasize the difference between cats and dogs when contrasted with a 2013 study from the University of Tokyo, which showed that cats can recognize their owner calling them but simply don’t care.

downloadAlthough humans have a larger neo-cortex than our animal compatriots, allowing for more dynamic learning, we are not alone in being able to assemble tones into coherent ideas and understanding. Indeed, magpies, crows, and ravens may surpass humans in a dimension of this: they are able to pass on learned visual cues to the next generation through an unknown mechanism. So even though we may be the kings of dynamic and abstract learning, we certainly aren’t the only species capable of conscious interaction with the world.
How much, and to what degree, our animal companions can understand us remains to be seen. Certainly, an increasing volume of research indicates that they understand more than many of us give them credit for.

Talking to Animals : The Animal Communicator Documentary Film

I love this article! I live with 4 dogs and we are indeed talking a lot by telepathic communication. They know everything that goes on in my mind. When we walk, in the early morning hours, they tell me clearly where they want to go; who they want to visit and what type of games they want to play. We also exchange opinions on peoples energies and trustworthiness. I love that we have this relationship. That we feel free and comfortable enough with each other, to allow our minds to be open and receptive.
Enjoy lovely people!!!

Blessings Edith

Have you ever experienced communicating with Animals or Birds … without having said a word or uttered a sound ? Telepathic communication with other intelligent entities is something we humans too are capable of doing, if only we can get past our limiting, fear based thoughts and perceptions of the external world …
Anna Breytenbach is one such person who has dedicated her life to what she calls inter-species communication. She sends detailed messages to animals through pictures and thoughts. She then receives messages of remarkable clarity back from the animals.


Anna can feel the scars hidden under a monkeys fur, she can understand the detailed story that is causing a birds trauma, she transforms a deadly snarling leopard into a relaxed content cat – the whole animal kingdom comes alive in a way never seen before – wild birds land on her shoulders, fish gather around her when she swims, and wild unfamiliar baboons lie on her body as if she is one of their own.

Here is another working link, in case the ones above don’t work …

ANCIENT CHEROKEE INDIAN TALE OF THE ORIGIN OF ILLNESS..

bearIIdetail1-672x372

I AM not a Cherokee in this lifetime nor do I claim to know their tales very well, but I like the synchronicity in which this picture and the story came into my life!!

10522106_10152543847128769_6219089655151220119_n

I love the way how this teaching spirals from the human being, to the animal realm, to the plant realm and back to spirit.  And I hope, that partly the animal kingdom has forgiven us and made peace with the humans.
Living with 4 dogs, I find myself  in the lucky position to receive constant teachings from them. So I love and appreciate their help, love, intensity, healing powers and sensitivity!! 
Nevertheless, as a collective there is a big need for humanity to shift once again into a harmonious, balanced relationship with nature and the animals.

It is time to drop all abuse and feel ONENESS!!

So in these upcoming weeks, breath in deeply the incoming light codes and allow this transmissions to help you raise your vibration. So we feel empowered to treat everybody in ways, fit for the Golden Age of Aquarius.
Blessings, Love and Blissful Light!! Enjoy the changes!!
Edith

Long ago the humans and the animals got along fine.  All the peoples, human and animal, could communicate with each other and were at peace. The animals of that long-ago time were much larger than the animals of today. Indeed, the animals of today are but shadows of those who once were.

There came a time when we humans forgot our place and broke the harmony. We humans began to reproduce at an alarming rate, and we gave ourselves to the production of all sorts of weapons meant for the destruction of the animals: spears and atlatls, bows and arrows, blowguns and traps of all kinds. We began to hunt, not just for food, but simply for the fun of killing. We humans also killed many animals just by pure carelessness, never stopping to think of the results of our actions. Even as we walked from place to place, we were not careful where we stepped, so that many of the tiny many-legged and legless ones were crushed to death or maimed. Some humans went so far as to purposely kill little animals merely from a feeling of disgust or loathing, going out of their way to step on a bug or squash a harmless spider. It was clear that we humans believed ourselves to be the only ones who mattered in all of creation, and as we continued clearing land and building our cities; it looked as if there would soon be no more room for anyone else to live in the earth.

descargaThe animals decided something had to be done about this human problem. The bears met separately from the other animals. The Great White Bear, presiding at the council asked, “What’s the problem?”
“It’s these humans; they kill us indiscriminately.”
“How do they kill us?”
“With bows and arrows.”
“Of what are their bows made?”
“The bow of locust wood and the bowstring of our guts.”

The bears decided they would make bows of their own with which to kill the humans. They got some locust wood, and one of the bears sacrificed himself to give material for the bowstring. When the bow was finished and arrows were made, one of the bears stood up to shoot. He could pull the string, but releasing it was a problem. His long claws would get hung and throw him off target. The other bears, ducking his wild arrows, cried out, “Stop, stop. Something must be done. We’ll cut your claws.”
After the bear’s claws were cut, he could shoot a bow as well as any man. “Now the humans have had it!” all the bears said. “We will hunt them, as they have hunted us! All we have to do is cut our claws.”

“Wait!” said the Great White Bear. “How is it that we bears make our living?”
“By climbing trees to get honey and by ripping open rotten logs to find insects and by digging in the earth for rodents and by catching fish.”
“How do we do all these things?”
“With our long claws.”

imagesThe bears understood that if they cut their claws they could no longer make a living as bears and would starve to death. The idea to hunt the humans with bows and arrows was scrapped, and they never came up with another solution.

All the other animals came together in a joint council to discuss the human problem. The Grubworm presided at the council. After all, it was his people, the little creeping and crawling peoples of the earth, who had suffered most from the actions of the humans. The animals all sat in a circle. The talking stick was passed, giving each an opportunity to speak. The Toad said, “Something must be done. These humans despise me. They are forever kicking me or throwing things at me, because they think I am ugly. Just look at all the bumps they’ve put on my back!”

CherokeeOnHorseOne of the little birds rose and said, “Although I’m too small to provide much meat, their little boys kill my people and roast us over the fire until our feathers and feet are burned off.” One after the other, the animals spoke of atrocities committed by the humans. The only one with nothing to say against the humans was the little chipmunk, who was too small to be hunted for food and too quick to be stepped on. When he spoke in defense of the humans, the other animals jumped on him and gave him such a scratching down his back that the stripes are there to this day!

Once it was established that something must be done about the humans in order to save the rest of creation, the floor was open for discussion of what to do. It was finally decided that each of the animal peoples would come up with at least one disease with which to inflict the humans, in order to kill most of them and to teach the rest some respect. Various animals attending the council agreed to come up with every sort of ailment from cancer to p.m.s. When the Grubworm heard this last one, he laughed so hard he fell over backwards and has been crawling around like that ever since.

So, all the animals went their separate ways to meet in council, each with their own kind, to work out the details of what they would do. The deer met in council, with their chief, Little Deer, presiding. The deer understood the humans to be a pitiful and needypeople who live only by the deaths of others. For this reason, the deer decided to allowthe humans to continue killing some deer each year, but only what is needed for food, NEVER FOR SPORT. Furthermore, a human hunter, upon killing a deer, is required to show respect for the spirit of the deer by begging the deer’s pardon and making a proper tobacco offering. And so, Little Deer, the chief and adawehi of all the deer will come. Swiftly and invisibly he will come to the place where the deer has died. Gently he will bend down over the blood. In a whisper, he will ask the spirit of the slain deer, “Did this hunter treat you with respect? Did he beg your pardon? Did he offer tobacco?”

images (1)If the answer is, “Yes,” all is well, and Little Deer will go on his way. But if the answer is, “No,” Little Deer will track that hunter to his home. There, Little Deer will strike that hunter with rheumatism, which he may never hunt again!
Word was sent to the human people, and we Cherokees have not forgotten this treaty with the deer.
And so, many diseases came into the earth. Many people died. For a while, it looked as though maybe no humans would survive in the earth. The great cities were forgottenand fell into ruin.
The plant peoples who saw all of this, also elected to come together and meet in council. Deciding to take pity on us humans, each plant agreed to give of itself to provide medicine for at least one human disease or ailment. All we humans had to do was ask in a respectful way.
