Yes, we can really communicate and it is not entertainment. It is a private and sometimes very personal communication using telepathy, which is the primary mode of communication between animals, and which all humans have at birth, but it’s pretty much beaten out of them (i.e.: they are told that it is not possible) by around 7 years old. That is when children start to have a concept of what the outside world thinks of them, so they suppress it far into their subconscious.
I think a lot of the disbelief in any kind of telepathy stems from religion and the need for religious organizations to control the masses. With intuitive and spiritual skills, people may feel they don’t need a ‘middle man’ to connect with whatever higher power they believe in.
I understand why it’s hard to believe for some people. There are even times, after I have done it for as many years as I have, when someone calls me and says, “I can’t believe it, you told my [cat, dog, horse, monkey] to do [this] and he did it for the first time ever!!!” And even *I* have to think, “Man, this really works!” It’s those types of validations we get that shows us that we are connecting. If we weren’t helping people and their pets, they wouldn’t call.
