Book Description

June 12 2001
"This is not a book of outrageous stories about supernatural abilities you do not possess. This is a book of outrageous stories about natural abilities all humans possess." From the Author's Prologue: "My Promise to You"

You already share a deep, loving bond with your animal. But what if you could enrich that bond even more? What if you could also listen -- and truly understand? What if your cat could reveal his mischievous secrets (not that he would) and your dog could tell you about her day? What if you could assure her you'd be back soon or assuage her fear of a visit to the vet? Would you like to know how to help her stop biting? Would you like to know why your show horse has stopped jumping? Would you like to know if your iguana is in pain? What if, when the time comes, you could say good-bye heart to heart?

You can. Amelia Kinkade, professional interspecies communicator, will show you how. In Straight from the Horse's Mouth, she shares the program she developed that has helped hundreds of her clients break through the only barrier that really separates people from any other animal: skepticism. Using guided meditations and other exercises in this book designed to increase intuition, you can literally learn to "talk with the animals," share memories and make plans, negotiate house rules or mediate sibling rivalries, diagnose illness, track a disappearance, accept one another's differences, and find each other again. Read Amelia Kinkade's adventures in animal communication in all their hilarity, passion, and tenderness, and know that you can join her.

Practice her exercises, and you will. Hear the chorus of troubled and endangered species, and learn what you can do to help. There will be no stopping the conversation.

Let Straight from the Horse's Mouth -- as practical as it is inspiring -- be your guide to better interspecies relationships, and it will change your life and your animal companions' lives too. That's our promise to you.

Product Description

From Amazon

When an animal is truly a family member, you want to communicate with it as completely as you do with human members, but how? Amelia Kinkade is here to show you, with plenty of tools for direct and serious conversation with your four-legged friends. Foes of anthropomorphism, beware: if you don't assume that animals have similar emotional responses to ours, you're liable to find this book a bunch of hooey. Kinkade's techniques involve various methods of telepathy, from sending specific questions like "what's your favorite food?" to receiving emotions like sadness or joy. Her years of experience working with pet owners and rescue services give Kinkade a wealth of fascinating stories. Conversations relayed between unhappy animals and their humans can be instructive to an amazing point--one horse knew he needed an iron supplement, while a cancer-ridden dog apologized to his owner for being "such a burden." Simple ideas seem relatively easy to trade. When leaving for a weekend trip, it's easy to observe an agitated dog or kitty. Calmly relaying facts about how long you'll be gone and what she should expect while you're gone can go a long way toward solving everything from tummy upsets to malicious shredding of furniture. More advanced students of Kinkade's methods can visually find specific causes of pain in animals and listen to what they need from their humans to heal. As with other books on telepathy, you won't find research or studies here. But if you have an open mind and willingness to experiment, Straight from the Horse's Mouth can open up satisfying new dimensions in your relationships with all animals. --Jill Lightner

From Publishers Weekly

Listed in The Top 100 Psychics in America, Kinkade is sought after by veterinarians and animal lovers around the world for her skill in locating lost pets, divining why an animal has lost its appetite or if it's close to death. She has communed with horses, dogs, cats, birds and even such zoo animals as elephants and jaguars. Peppered with heartwarming anecdotes about some of her cases, her book is primarily a guide to becoming an animal communicator something she believes is possible for any animal lover. The exercises she prescribes involve deep breathing, centering, asking many questions and keeping a "Paws and Listen" notebook. A true friend to animals, Kinkade also has strong opinions about animals' health and diet: "Aside from complaints about vaccinations, cats and dogs tell me the biggest culprit in destroying their health and happiness is commercial pet food." She encourages finding a holistic veterinarian and is adamant that we need to listen to animals more closely and to treat them with more tenderness overall. The last chapter, in which Kinkade reprints Albert Schweitzer's "Man and Creature," underscores her point. An excellent appendix lists, among other resources, companies that do no testing on animals. Agent, Jo Fagan, Jane Dystel Literary Management. (On-sale: June 12)Forecast: A first-rate guide for those who wish to talk to animals, this book may not satisfy readers who primarily enjoy stories of human-animal communion. On her nine-city author tour, Kinkade is bound to attract both the committed and the curious.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book on this subject out there Nov. 20 2003
I ditto the comments of other reviewers so I will keep this short. 5 stars!!! Worth 3 times the money.
I have studied the methods of other animal communicators, and purchased their books and tapes. This really is the best I have found.
I also have her CD which can be purchased from her web site, and it is wonderful as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Straight talk for us confused humans April 21 2004
What can I say, this book kicks arse! I've been to Amelia's interactive 2 day lectures, and would NEVER have thought of attending had I not read her book and thirsted for more! The book is dotted with medetations to help us break down our intellectual processes, so we become open to what our animal friends are telling us. It flows with stories from Amelia's life and keeps you fully entertained with her wit while jerking a tear or two from your eyes. If you are interested in animal communications-and who wouldn't be?-This book is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Amazing Book I've Ever Read! June 23 2004
Never before have I finished a book and immediately turned around and started reading it again. It's that great! Amelia's style of writing has the reader enthralled and you can't wait to read more. I laughed and I cried at her stories. I'd always been more of a "dog person" before but after reading about her cats I have much more respect for them. This book should be compulsory reading in all schools. Can't wait for Amelia's next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars *ATTENTION ANIMAL LOVERS* March 23 2003
I do have to say, if I could rate this book with more than five stars, I most definetly would...I have read Amelia Kinkade's Straight from the Horse's Mouth: How to Talk to Animals and Get Answers cover to cover and it was such a wonderful inspiration to all who love and adore their animal friends...Amelia Kinkade certainly breaks it down to you on how to do animal communication and it seems simple enough...She adds wonderful stories from her experiences that will make you laugh, cry, and really make you think...I have to say my favorite part even though it was in the end, was the Epilouge: Rodney's Command Performance...I read it over and over...It made me cry yet feel hopeful, but I won't spoit it for those who haven't read this book...But all in all, it's very inspirational and I'm so greatful this book is avaliable to help us better understand and get closer with our animal friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book on Animal Communication June 13 2003
I am a journalist, and I got this book for research in connection with an article I was writing for FERRETS magazine. I also got it because I was basically just interested in the subject. Well, I read A LOT of books for my research, but I am glad I *bought* this one. It's a keeper. It's extremely well-written in an entertaining style, and covers everything you could possibly want to know about interspecies communication. I even bought another copy as a gift for a friend. I will read it again, for sure. My one complaint? No ferret stories!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book has helped me open new doors! May 23 2003
I don't mean to sound corny but this book has changed my life.
I have struggled and tried to listen to animals for years, this book is the key I have needed. It has helped to open my mind and has provided me with lessons to follow so I can continue working on my own ability to hear animals.
For many of us the ability to communicate is a rusty skill, it takes time and daily practice to become good at it. The easy to follow lessons will help you along your way.

5.0 out of 5 stars A captivating book April 4 2002
If you love animals, this book will be vital to you.
It will make you laugh. It will make you cry. But, most of all, it will teach you how to communicate with your beloved animals as well as with wild ones.
In this book, Amelia unfolds her journey into the world of animal communication. You'll read the story of her first encounter with an animal communicator and how this incident change her life. It took no magic wands to open the door for her. And it will take nothing more for you.
In her book the various levels of animal communication are divided in chapters: Of feeling, of seeing, of hearing and of communicating across the borders of time and space. Of all the books that deal with this subject, this is the one that finally made it clear. By dealing with each kind of communication separately, it's easy for the novice to understand what it's all about. Moreover, in each chapter you will be provided with exercises/meditations to help you do it yourself. And, believe me, you could never believe how easy it is.
Also, the book is filled with anecdotes and incidents from Amelia's experience. And it includes the most heart-felt prayer to Shekmet I've ever read. No matter what your faith is, this little prayer will make you weep.
This book has been a key to a greater world for me. It can work the same for you too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Please Jan. 21 2002
By A Customer
Doubt? What doubt? Please, Amelia, my third eye may be atrophing, but I'm a believer. No one has ever told me that talking to animals is silly or stupid or impossible, and if they did, I wouldn't believe them.

Although I have yet to talk to an animal, I have been practicing. The meditation techniques in this book are astoundingly helpful. Every morning, I do her exercise "Shedding the Cloak of Negativity" and it opens up my mind and prepares me for the day with a light heart. My family has no pets at the moment, but we are anticipating the arrival of a small, furry creature (preferably one with large floppy ears). We are going to the zoo soon, and if what I have been practicing is correct, I have yet to discuss religion and politics with the tigers.
Amelia's book has been a guide not only in conversing with animals, but in conversing with myself. I am more aware of what goes on around me and more attuned to nature and God. I have become more sensitive to animals all around me. That includes people.Thank you, Amelia.
