Animal Spirit Blog: The Nature of Interspecies Connection
Animal Communicator Kristen Houser
Many people in the Cannimal Community are actively exploring animal communication- whether that is using a more conscious, energetic response while working with their anxious dog or when a beloved animal crosses the rainbow bridge. Kristen Houser of @Faunaspeak is an incredibly gifted woman with a deep connection to our animal friends. Her insights are a balance of grounded and practical wisdom and multi-dimensional downloads that activate the mind-body. Reading through one of her Instagram posts or getting a session with her is a heart and soul opening experience into the deep connections we have with the animals who choose to spend time with us here. You can schedule a session with her at www.faunaspeak.com and on IG at @Faunaspeak

By Kristen Houser: I arrived onto Earth with a deep love for the Animal Kingdom; they were my dearest companions as a young human. Animals always felt safe and nurturing when the human world tended to offer more chaotic energies. Of course I can intellectualize what I was experiencing in hindsight, but as I child, all I could understand was how I felt. I truly desired to give and receive love without condition and it was the Animals who met me there, who fostered that love-light within me through the challenges of maturing. They still protect it from being extinguished.
When we experience animals in their natural state such as the perfect geometric flight patterns of birds, the resounding beauty of owls hooting at dusk or the power of a horse running free, animals help us remember the resonance of love on this planet. They are a beacon that brings us back home, to remembering, to our center and what is possible.
Just like plants, each Animal embodies a medicine that will nourish us. Whether your Dog is teaching you about leadership or maybe a black Cat has appeared in your life, assisting you in navigating the shadow realm. You can rest assured you are protected on this journey.
The Animals you need to learn from will always appear at just the right time. These may be the wild animals as well. Some days you will need the gentleness of Deer, but other days might require the fierceness of Tiger. Maybe the Coyote trickster will appear and spin you around, but keep a light heart and know he has your growth in mind. Trust the process and the insights you are being given.
Animal Medicine is ultimately based on love, but sometimes they hiss or even kick. Even when I got scratched by a kitten as a toddler, I learned boundaries are just as much a part of this journey as soft fur and wagging tails... Some of the most potent Animal Medicines are the ones we potentially fear the most, like Shark, Snake or Spider. Their wisdom is fierce, yet ultimately loving upon further exploration.

The Animal Kingdom is ready to be acknowledged in a new way. They are ready to see us as peers, which requires meeting them on a soul level. We have this beautiful opportunity to learn how they work with the planet, humanity and their own communities. Our companion animals are not excluded from this momentum of connection!
Take the time to acknowledge your cat, dog, bird or reptile in a more magical way today. They are our most loyal friends, soul mates and teachers!
What are their behaviors teaching you?
How are their experiences a mirror for your own?
How can you show them your gratitude?
Your journeys are intertwined.
You don’t have to understand everything in this moment, but you can set the intention of deepening your connection to your Animal companions. You might not always understand them, but they always understand you and your needs. Celebrate their devotion! Praise their magic!
