This New Thinking Allowed “Video Nugget” has been excerpted from a longer conversation with Miranda Alcott and Jeffrey Mishlove titled “Speaking With Animals” in which Miranda notes that humans have various misconceptions regarding their communication with animals. For example, we may not recognize how our emotional state impacts animal companions. Nor do we generally recognize that animals are sensitive to the mental pictures we hold. Also, humans are often insensitive to the needs and desires of animals; and, in these instances, the communication is not based on mutual respect. She discusses the differences between communicating with domestic and wild animals.
This New Thinking Allowed “Video Nugget” has been excerpted from a longer video interview with Miranda Alcott titled “Listening to Animals” in which Miranda describes how each animal species has a unique culture. Animals can communicate with us, and can even teach us, if we are willing to quiet our minds, let go of our preconceptions and listen. This often comes naturally to children. In fact, sometimes children experience communication from animals as an imaginary playmate. Animals can also communicate through visual imagery and energetic patterns akin to what is sometimes thought of as the “aura”. When opening up to communication with animals, it is very important to develop a sense of inner self-trust. She claims that we all, subconsciously, use telepathy throughout the day.
This New Thinking Allowed “Video Nugget” has been excerpted from a longer conversation with Miranda Alcott and Jeffrey Mishlove titled “Animals and the Afterlife” in which Miranda explains that many individuals feel a connection with their deceased animals. Her work as an animal communicator is to make that connection more explicit. She provides many details and examples. While some viewers will be justifiably skeptical about accepting somebody’s intuitive impressions of the afterlife, Alcott’s experiences are presented as a source of data — in the spirit of William James’ “radical empiricism”.

“I do this by using what’s currently referred to as a holographic paradigm, which includes quanta, or small groupings of energy.”
“…each atom’s frequencies are so unique that every one of us carries a very individual energetic ‘snowflake’. What I experience are the different “signatures” that constitute the fields that permeate and surround each of us and, in fact, all living organisms.”
Do You Know Who You Are Living With? – By Miranda Alcott, MA-CHH
Probably one of the most advanced personal health care givers we have today is living right in our homes, pets. But how aware are we of the impact of their counseling skills, healing insights, ‘placebo effects’ and diversionary tactics are in our daily lives?

Whisper, a Golden/Labrador Service Dog chose a second career in 1998 becoming a Crisis Intervention Canine (CIC). She received a letter of recommendation for her work at The World Trade center after 9/11. A Ground Zero Chaplain wrote, “In the morgue environment, scratching a dog’s head and giving her (Whisper) a hug, was refreshing and soothing—a welcome relief to the necessary work being done.”
More and more crisis response teams are using canines to work alongside their human partners to do just that, aid in crisis. A canine wishing to be come a CIC must also pass stringent tests in physical, emotional and mental stressors, all of which can occur during a response. One of the crisis counselors in New York described CICs as being, “Therapists with a lot of fur.”
Many people living in Katrina’s path who had pets, took life or death stands to stay behind because they felt so strongly about the daily emotional support and love they receive from their animals.
Through research into subatomic particles, in cells within our bodies, science is discovering that everything is composed of the same energies and that what we do affects how energy materializes–everywhere. The exciting news that has come through wonderful sources like Lynn McTaggart’s The Field and Dr. Emoto’s Messages in Water, is that we can directly affect our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health by simply changing our thoughts.
So about those patient furry creatures in our homes? Animals are naturally attuned to their surroundings as well as our personal quirks and needs. The distractions they give us when we are self-absorbed, the play they involve us in when we are depressed, the energy they create for us on an ongoing basis, all contribute to balancing our stressors. They provide a well-orchestrated ‘support’ for us each day. Doesn’t it make sense then to follow an animal’s lead as to how to de-stress?
In the current atmosphere of the national challenges we are facing and the 5th anniversary of 9/11, take a moment to ‘listen’ to what your very own live-in health practitioner has to share with you about your stress. Your animal knows who they are living with, do we?
To find Miranda Alcott, a self-proclaimed “animal communications counselor,” one must drive down a street of apartment buildings in Brentwood until, at the very end, several small clapboard houses appear. Standing in front of one is a ceramic sculpture of a dog.
“Whatever you do,” Alcott says, “please don’t use the P word in describing me. I’m not a psychic What I do is hear things that other people can’t.” Tall, with long blond hair, the 45-year-old Alcott is wearing an aquamarine sweater and black slacks. Her tone of voice is low-key and reasonable, her demeanor calm and matter-of-fact. In the 14 years since she was seriously injured in a car accident, she has all but lost her hearing. However, she says that as this sense withered, her extrasensory abilities that she had been cognizant of since a very early age, simultaneously bloomed.
“Last night,” Alcott is saying as rain drums steadily against her roof, “we were working with a couple in Maryland that believed their dog needed to be euthanized. But as it turned out, the animal was not ready to transition.” How did Alcott obtain the intelligence?
“The dog communicated to me that he is not ready. He did it telepathically. Do you know about quantum mechanics? Everything breaks down to vibrations. I am able to tune into these vibrations.”
In this case, Alcott–who in telephone consultations uses her mother as an interpreter–began by asking the dog’s owners for some basic information. They told her that their 17-year-old American Eskimo, Kodi, had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. After taking in the information, Alcott requested several minutes to commune with the dog. That it was 2,000 miles away, she says, was not a hindrance.
During a period of what she calls ‘HarmoniousListning,” Alcott says that Kido told her that he didn’t like his food. Alcott then asked the owners to return to the line. “I instructed the woman to get some of Kodi’s kibble and rub it between her fingers. It smelled like fish–I could smell it. I asked her whether his food could be related to his illness, and she said, ‘Oh God, we changed his food two-and-a-half months ago, and that’s when his symptoms started.’” Alcott suggested that the owners take Kodi to the vet for more tests. Two days later, she says, they phone her with the news that after changing Kodi’s kibble, the dog had rallied, and for the moment, they had put off all thoughts of destroying him.
Speaking the Language of the Heart – By Miranda Alcott, MA-CHH
“All of us are born with the ability to communicate freely, to learn any language and to sense meaning in the movements of each other and the elements. However in our non-indigenous Western cultures, most of us learn to restrict the band-width of our communications to people in our immediate environment. …”

I came into this live with enhanced capacities for seeing the invisible and hearing the inaudible. . .(Excerpts continue. . . )
All of us are born with the ability to communicate freely, to learn any language and to sense meaning in the movements of each other and the elements. However in our non-indigenous Western cultures, most of us learn to restrict the band-width of our communications to people in our immediate environment. We, thus, lose an essential survival skill, now more important than ever in this time of sudden and dramatic Earth changes. The language of intuition.
I was fortunate in being born to parents who had dedicated a portion of their lives to exploring realms of reality and ways of knowing outside the normal range of human perception. I am grateful now that they encouraged my unusual sensitivities and talents. But these abilities did not always feel like ‘gifts’ to me as they sometimes brought unwanted images of painful, unstoppable future events. . .
I spent my early adult hood as a professional musician. But my life path was unexpectedly altered by an auto accident that led to the loss of my hearing and the extraordinary amplification of my intuitive gifts. I then devoted myself exclusively to using my gifts to help people access the wisdom within and around them in order to resolve their conflicts and realize their reason for being.
Disasters such as the recent tsunami It also alerts us to the need to recover our innate capacity to hear that which no instrument can yet detect…
A few years ago I began teaching a way of being that I call HarmoniousListening™. Through the processes we share in my workshops and the energy activations that occur within the participants, students find they are able to rebuild or strengthen the bridge of communication that makes it possible to live in greater harmony with the natural world.
