Can Animals Read Your Mind in Dreams?

Animal Telepathy and Dreams

Do animals dream? Just like us animals sleep, dream and may even have psychic dreams. However, nature has devised sleep routines and their experience of sleep and dreams may be very different to our own. For example, a brown bat will sleep 19.9 hours a day whereas a giraffe sleeps only 1.9 hours. And the brain of a dolphin appears to sleep one hemisphere at a time!

Animals Dream

We can’t ask them of course but it is thought that animals also dream as they show REM activity and movement when sleeping. Watch your dog or cat sometime and you can tell it is dreaming of running as its eyes twitch and it may move its paws as if something is happening in the dream. Scientists think that most warm-blooded animals dream and that hunting animals like cats dogs and humans spend more time dreaming than animals that are hunted such as cattle, sheep, goats, and rabbits.

The opossum is the mammal that dreams the most (and snores a lot) whereas the spiny anteater echidna and platypus never dream. The platypus and the echidna have huge brains given their low intelligence and scientists speculate that they need this higher brain to IQ ratio, because they do not have dreams to aid in the learning process.

Telepathic Animals

Animal Telepathy – is this an ancient skill?

Animal Telepathy

It is not known whether animals have psychic dreams or whether they are more psychic than humans. They may have super-sensitive sight, smell, and hearing that make then aware when a person is coming home or if something like an earthquake is about to happen. For example, before the Agadir earthquake in Morocco in 1960, stray animals including dogs were seen streaming from the port before the shock that killed 15,000 people.

The animals had read the signs that there would be a quake. A similar phenomenon was observed three years later before the earthquake which reduced the city of Skopje, Yugoslavia, to rubble.

I have been sent many instances of psychic animals via my newspaper columns and website including fascinating examples of animals that know when their owner is coming home, can find their way home over great distances or will know when their owner is ill or upset. Today there are even psychics working who claim to be able to help calm maladjustment pets by using a combination of telepathy and spiritual healing. It would be reasonable to assume that animals have psychic dreams.

Dream of Dog

One interesting example was described by the English Novelist H. Rider Haggard who wrote King Solomon’s Mines’. In 1904 he dreamed he saw his daughter’s black retriever lying among brushwood by water. The animal, he wrote “transmitted to my mind in an undefined fashion the knowledge that it was dying.” The novelist described the dream to his wife when he awoke.

The next day the dog was missing and Haggard and others embarked on a search. The body of the dog was discovered floating against a weir just one mile from his home. Haggard believed that his dream had been a telepathic communication with the dying dog and he had communicated with him by “placing whatever part of my being is capable of receiving such impulses when enchained by sleep, into its own terrible place.”

    I’ve been communicating with dogs and cats for quite some time now. I’ve been able to sense when a cat feels sad, scared, peaceful, etc. I’ve had positive reactions from dogs before meeting them for the first time that’s confirmed by the dog owner who usually tells me that the dog had never done that before or has only done that with the family members. Lately, though, I’m having wild birds telepathically communicate to me…It’s different because this time I hear the words ‘help us’ or ‘save us’ or ‘feed us. We’re hungry’. I gather that the first two referring from the birds refer to global warming troubles that add to living in nature which is already stressful, to begin with.

      Please could you help me to locate my stolen dog he is really special as he was a gift from a deceased family member and my children miss him so much every time they look at his picture or hears someone say his name they end up in tears please could you help me as it would mean the world to us to get blue back and my children would be really happy at last to have him home.

    Last night I dreamed I heard a bark.. I turned around and saw a young Labrador digging by a big tree, she looked happy and free. I was confused however as my dog is a border collie and I don’t have any connections with Labradors. I asked her who she was. Telepathically she replied ‘I’m Bailey of course!’ ( my daughter’s name is Baylea) I then remembered that a colleague of mine had lost her 10 yr old lab a week ago. Then Bailey asked me to tell my friend that she was really happy and not to worry about her passing. Today I messaged my friend and with some trepidation recalled this dream. She replied saying she was in tears. Bailey used to bury her bones at the base of a big tree in their garden and also her partner had just gone to collect her ashes so she could be laid to rest with her other pets. She was immensely grateful! This has never happened to me before. Can it happen again?
