Keynote Talk: Animal Liberation: Healing The Planet Through Awakened Consciousness
Noon – 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 1 at Earle Brown Heritage Center, Brooklyn Center, MN
Workshop: Animal Intuitive
Sunday, March 2 & Monday, March 3
INTERNATIONALLY RENOWNED animal communicator, intuitive counselor, teacher, inspirational speaker and radio host Asia Voight will present a keynote talk and two-day workshop at this year’s Minneapolis Psychic Symposium. She is a contributing author in Pearls of Wisdom with Jack Canfield, and Miracles Happen with Dr. Brian Weiss. She has been featured on ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox TV, Coast-to-Coast, and Hay House.
Asia has connected with more than 70,000 animals on a soul level to help resolve emotional and behavioral issues, while deepening their bond with their human companions. She also reconnects people with their own intuition, healing ability, potential and life’s purpose.
The following is an interview she conducted with The Edge on animals and intuition:
Many pet owners get an intuitive sense that their animals understand them. Without knowing it, are many of them communicating with their pets the way you do?
Asia Voight: Yes, many pet guardians are communicating with their animal companions on multiple levels.
There is, of course, the obvious physical level when you see your animal companion wanting to go out to the bathroom by standing and barking at the door. My clients move into a much deeper level of communication with their pets by increasing their INTENT to communicate with them telepathically. For example, they tell me they may be watching TV and spontaneously get up and go to the back door without any physical sign or noise from their dog and find them standing at the door. They heard their dog’s internal message.
What I do as a professional animal communicator that is different from the average pet guardian is having full conscious conversations on ANY topic with an animal companion. With practice, many of my students are able to do the same. Sometimes, when pet parents are learning deeper levels of communication, they don’t trust their messages. I am a neutral person with a clear objective view, a counselor at times, who can aid in clearing up any miscommunications, issues or problems. My father calls me an animal therapist!
We have been taught that dog is man’s best friend. Is that the general reason dogs share a part in our lives?
AV: Yes, all animals especially dogs, lend themselves to unconditional love. They are able to effortlessly “get under our defensive, closed-hearted” behaviors and literally wiggle their way deep into our hearts. Animals also come into our lives for complex reasons. They may act as mirrors to help us heal our dysfunctions, or to assist us in authentically living in our power.
After a horrific car fire and near-death experience 25 years ago, my dog Makeba saved my life. I had horrible pain, was depressed and unwilling to get out of bed. My beloved dog would not give up on me like other people had in my life. She was 80 pounds of grey and black fluff, strength and determination. While I moped in bed, she pushed her leash in my face clearly saying, “Get up!” If that didn’t work, she jumped up and down on the bed until I took her for a walk. Ultimately I gained strength and my body healed faster.
If dog is man’s best friend, what is cat? What role, in general, do cats serve in our lives?
AV: Cats fill the wise role of mystic, sage and seer. Whether they are silly or serious, they diligently urge us towards living our soul’s purpose in a balanced and grounded way. They are extremely uncomfortable with disharmony, and energetic or emotional instability. They are concerned with protecting us from any high frequency imbalances, such as their person’s negative thoughts. Most of these imbalances we are unaware of, so our beloved felines are indeed angels in fur watching over us.
How common is it for pets who pass over to reincarnate and return directly to the same person’s life? Please share an empowering story of pets and reincarnation, if you have any.
AV: It is common for animals to reincarnate and return to the same person, especially if they have emotional and spiritual work to do with each other. People in the same soul group reincarnate together, and this is also true for animals.
I have an adorable story of a cat and mouse. When I was in the third grade, my older brothers gifted me with a little brown gerbil. This gerbil was my first pet and I loved him dearly. I named him “George The Gerbil.” I played with him everyday. He was so acrobatic he escaped each house I built for him. Finally, I found a box that a washing machine came in and filled it with wood shavings, food, water and lots of toys. He happily lived there until his passing.
Seventeen years went by until I had another pet — a pregnant female grey tabby cat. When she gave birth to her kittens, a little golden colored one stood out to me. I gazed lovingly at him, hearing myself say, “I KNOW YOU.” Years went by before this extremely acrobatic cat’s identity would be revealed.
On that day, I looked at him and said, “Who are you? I’ve been trying to understand how I know you. And why on earth do you always smell like wood shavings?”
He grinningly looked at me with his almond shaped eyes and said, “George.” I could barely believe it! I responded, “I didn’t know animals could change their reincarnation form.” He replied, “Well, yes. I prefer the form of a cat, but there was no opening as a cat in your house when you were a little girl. I desired so badly to be with you again that it was worth being your little gerbil. I’m glad you finally figured out my wood shavings message!”
What experiences have you had lately with animals related to the current transformation of energies on the planet? How is this shift of consciousness affecting them?
AV: I have been hearing animals asking for all humans, especially their special companions, to learn how to speak with them. The large gap in communication between species is so damaging to the earth’s well-being. The animals say, “Now is the time to make the effort and reawaken your ability to communicate with animals.” I know everyone is capable of this beautiful connection.
Finally, what message would you like to leave with our readers regarding animal communication?
AV: Animal communication allows understanding during challenging times with your pets. For example, a perceived misbehavior might really be a call for help. They may have undiagnosed pain or illness in their body, or they’re feeling your own internal emotional or physical angst needing relief. There’s no need to wonder if you are doing right by your dogs, cats and horses. With animal communication you don’t waste time and money trying to figure out what’s wrong. You simply ask. You also gain peace of mind during end-of-life decisions. Finally, if you can only learn a fraction of how your pets communicate, it will deepen your love and change your life forever.
