Taking Cue From Nature, Animal Communicator Decodes Their Behaviour |  Pune News
Pune: Nature, it is said, is the best teacher. While growing up in the Himalayas, Manjiri Latey started her “interactions” with the natural landscape and learnt valuable lessons from animals and tribal people.
“There have been several instances when wild animals and even mountain dogs have saved our lives by giving us a probable indication of an avalanche — by suddenly turning around and running away. I remember my father telling me, ‘when you see an animal doing that, especially in nature, you are meant to not question it, but follow suit’,” said Latey, who works as a nature and animal communicator in Pune.
Her journey towards becoming a telepathic animal communicator started in 2009 when she lost one of her family dogs. “After he passed away, I set off on a journey to understand why it suffered so much towards the tail end of its life. While doing so, I chanced upon an entire body of work on telepathic animal communication that is formally taught overseas,” said Latey.
She went to the US to train under renowned animal communicators Carol Gurney, Kim Pickett and Maia Kincaid.
“The three teachers helped me to understand the structure of telepathic animal communication. The other teachers are the tribal people and the Buddhist monks I have interacted with,” said Latey, whose parents have been mountaineers.
Latey also completed a Master’s in outdoor education from the University of Wales, the UK, and a certified master trainer course in neuro linguistic programming from NFNLP-USA.
“Some of my top learnings have been not only about animals but also nature as well. The first thing I learnt is to be non-judgemental. No animal judges us by our caste, creed, color or language. Second, is to surrender to the flow of life. Third, is to be one’s authentic self. No element in nature strives to be other than what it is,” said Latey, who has spent a considerable time in the Himalayas during the eighties.
Her interactions with animals have led her to believe they are the powerhouse of wisdom. “Some of the behavioral or health-related aspects seen in a domesticated animal are because they are either mirroring a human being or want to give a message to a human being,” she said.
During the pandemic, a family sought Latey’s help for its pet dog, which started digging out things in the house. “It was pulling out fabric from the sofas. On a Zoom call, I involved the family, along with the dog. I asked whether it was trying to mirror someone in the family. After speaking to family members, I learnt there was a person in the house who was digging up the past, bringing up issues, and constantly fighting with people. The moment she changed her ways, the dog also changed its behaviour,” she said.
“The same way we recognize our internal voice, an animal also speaks to us through internal representation,” she said. “For that one does not have to be physically present in front of an animal. We also communicate telepathically by looking at the photos of animals,” said Ashwiinii Salve (25), another city-based animal communicator.
“Wild animals, though, have a different perspective altogether. They look at life differently,” she said. Salve has interacted with animals in the wild in Kanha, Gir and Ranthambore forests.
Services of animal communicators are typically sought to find lost animals or to know the reason for the sudden change in their health or behaviour.
“Sometimes, people just want to understand whether their pets are happy, or why they are behaving in a certain manner,” said Salve.
“Our job as a communicator is to become the voice for animals,” added Latey.
While looking into cases of lost animals, Latey has often found that an animal has run away on its own to make the job easier for its carer. “There are cases where families want to migrate or shift cities and they think that their pets have become a liability. In such cases, the animal often decides to run away on its own and find another family,” she said.
“Animals will always find the path of least resistance to reach us, which could entail mirroring a human being, or doing something drastic to make us understand,” observed Latey.
Her training in neuro linguistics has helped her to understand animals better. “Whether I am working with domestic or wild animals, I cannot bypass the human element. So being able to manage humans well is an integral part of telepathic communication,” said Latey.
Salve couldn’t agree more. “All animals love to talk and are easy to work with, but humans are a challenge.”
