Janet Roper is an animal communicator, Reiki II practitioner, animal advocate, blogger and author.
So many people ask me if animal communication is for real, or if we’re simply imaging it, perhaps even hoping for it.
Get comfortable, prepare to be amazed, wowed and moved as you watch this beautiful documentary, The Animal Communicator. Anna Breytenbach is a professional animal communicator who has received advanced training through the Assisi International Animal Institute in California, USA and has been practicing for 12 years in South Africa, Europe and the USA with domestic and wild animals.
I was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa and had a very ordinary suburban upbringing without any special exposure to animals, etc. Now I live between the beach and mountain on the Cape’s south peninsula, and travel in southern Africa, Europe and the USA to conduct workshops. In my twenties I decided to live out my passion for wildlife (big cats in particular) by becoming a cheetah handler, and with this I volunteered at a conservation education project on weekends. Observing and being in close contact with these essentially wild animals probably opened me in empathic ways. As I was raised in Africa, I knew little to nothing about North American species and therefore couldn’t analyze or interpret the footprints I was looking at based on visual cues. My mentors told me to close my eyes and “feel” the energy from the track — whereupon I’d get brief mental image or other sensings of which animal had left those paw prints. I then researched the phenomenon of Interspecies Communication and chose to study in this field through the Assisi International Animal Institute in the USA, doing case studies and various courses to advanced levels. Eight years ago I returned to South Africa as I’m particularly passionate about our wildlife and Nature on this continent. The techniques are exactly the same no matter what species we’re communicating with, from fish to flies, ants to elephants, cats to cabbages. I focus on conducting workshops to empower people to do this themselves — to get reacquainted with their natural intuition.
In the case of a behavioural or emotional issue, the process is to communicate with the animal directly to find out what’s motivating the behaviour.
There are many to do with, for example, horses who explain why they do or don’t want certain riders on their backs based on human personalities or possibly traumatic events in their past that continue to affect their present-day response patterns.
Another example is a domestic cat who befriended a puff adder snake and would lead it to safety away from the household which was occupied by people intent on killing the snake if they could find it. The basic weekend animal communication workshops I offer around South Africa give participants all the tools to communicate effectively across the species divide. We look at applying the techniques in various ways, deepening our understanding of how to address behavioural issues, work with nature and wildlife sensitively, ascertain physical symptoms via telepathy, and connecting with animals who have left their bodies.
Some regard elephants as violent and dangerous, whilst others as beautiful and serene…What has your experience been? Elephants are connected to each other in an expanded family sense and are also very connected to the collective consciousness and to the earth energy. Another important aspect to their wisdom is that they hold on land what the whales hold in the sea. It is said that elephants and humans are remarkably similar in many ways… for example: they live relatively long lives, calves require focussed attention from their mothers, they go through puberty, adolescence and old age, show hormonal tendencies, suffer from coronary disease, and have life-long family or friendship bonds.
In rehabilitation and sanctuary scenarios I have seen elephants nurture each other and often take care of their human keepers as well. Elephants are known to live in social harmony with themselves and with other species around them.
The South African elephants are currently under culling threat due to alleged overpopulation – can you comment on this?
Elephant populations in the Kruger National Park have almost returned to levels prior to the mid 90’s ban on culling. Contraception has proven to be very effective with elephants but the authorities state that it is too costly to implement. Additionally, the well-known phenomenon of the Species Survival Syndrome has proven that when there’s a sudden drop in the population number of a particular species (due to drought or culling, for example), the species markedly increases its reproductive rate to fill the void that was created.
I have also heard from trusted sources that the South African game rangers who 15 years ago culled elephants in South African are refusing to cull again. I have worked directly with a couple of elephant calves orphaned by culls – and they had witnessed their mothers being murdered. One of the greatest negative effects on the survivors of culls is the break in the chain of learning how to be balanced and successful adult elephants. At the Natal Society for the Arts Gallery there is currently a big, life size elephant sculpture standing outside the building made out of tires and steel created by Andries Botha and Ian Player. Shortly after, I was asked to join my host for some tea, when she related that many birds were missing all of a sudden but they couldn’t discover why.

Being in a world with over 7 billion other human beings, it should come as a surprise to us when we realise we’re not very good communicators, but it doesn’t.
Aside from the commands we give to our pet dogs and cats, and the food we put out for them when they’re hungry, how can we say we’re any better at communicating with them than we are with each other? The Animal Communicator is a documentary that was brought to my attention by a good friend of mine.
The film starts with Breytenbach on a cliff top overlooking the ocean and showing us that this place, the southern tip of Africa, is special to her because it’s the origin our species. We encounter a handful of stories like these and Breytenbach’s skills as an animal communicator are put to the test when she comes face to face with a dangerous panther that’s been rescued from a zoo.

Anna Breytenbach is a professional animal communicator who has received advanced training through the Assisi International Animal Institute in California, USA and has been practising for 12 years in South Africa, Europe and the USA with domestic and wild animals.
As part of a film festival submission, the documentary on Anna Breytenbach's work is viewable online for a limited time only. Animal communication IS for real, and we all have the ability (if not the desire) to communicate with animals. Her conservation experience includes working with cheetahs, lions, wolves, baboons and elephants in educational and rehabilitation programs.
After high school I studied Psychology, Marketing and Economics at the University of Cape Town and entered the corporate world, enjoying a successful career for 12 years in Human Resources and Information Technology, which took me to Australia and the USA. However, the so-called psychic experiences began when I was doing my tracking training with the Wilderness Awareness School based outside Seattle, Washington.
At first I thought I was losing my mind, but again and again these “sudden knowings” would prove to be true.
In your introductory video (on your website), you say that interspecies communication is meant to be a “natural skill”. To our native ancestors, these skills were a part of everyday life, as much as vocalized language or other physical forms of expression. At this point, I’m sure a lot of people (including myself) are dying to ask a specific question, and that is: How do you actually communicate with the animals?
Because of my travel and workshop schedule, I seldom have time for private consultations anymore. Once that is known, consequence and alternatives can literally be discussed with the animal. Turns out he was seeing human fingernails as claws, and was miffed at the lack of fairness.
These workshops last between four to six days and involve direct contact with animals in the wild, with only a few hours of workshop content per day. It is also the equinox in the Northern Hemisphere representing the first day of autumn and in the Southern Hemisphere depicting the first day of spring.
They are working “trunk in fin” with the whales as keepers of ancient wisdom and knowledge. They also have a sense of humour, mourn their dead by weeping, adopt orphans, show mean streaks when under threat and react to a staggering array of emotions. At the Londolozi Game Reserve in South Africa a pregnant female elephant was sighted a few days ago whilst giving birth alone to her calf.
However it is very costly to implement manpower to track down a herd and cull all the family members.
Have you had firsthand experience of the extreme stress and trauma that these methods of population control have on the emotional well being of elephants?
For months afterwards these calves were still in a state of extreme shock, and the PTSD very seldom leaves them. Because matriarchal lineage is broken, the surviving calves don’t know how to access the knowledge of the ways of being elephants.
The elephant is called Nomkhubulwane after the earth goddess who can shape shift into any animal. The baboons are progressively sourcing their food in our village where most residents would like to see them culled. As it was a forested area she said it was possible that snakes came at night, but whether they were responsible she could not say. We might be able to talk to one another, but rarely do we actually understand another person’s emotions, feel what they’re experiencing or share their perspectives, opinions and beliefs that’ve been shaped during the course of their lives.
It may be that you believe it’s not at all possible for us humans to talk to animals in a way they could understand (or vice-versa), but where does this idea stem from, and how do we know it to be true? Knowing I have a much greater level of empathy, compassion and understanding of them as intelligent and emotional beings than with people, my friend urged me to watch it because he thought it would confirm everything I feel instinctively when it comes to cross-species communication. We immediately feel the space that’s grown between us and the animal kingdom and the emptiness that lies in between is something that can still be fixed. We look forward to receiving articles between 700 and 1,500 words, submitted as a Word document. Her conservation experience includes working with cheetahs, lions, wolves, baboons and elephants in educational and rehabilitation programmes.
It has changed my life, by inviting me to step even deeper into relationship with all sentient beings.
I also communicate but have a bit of a difficult time chatting with exotics , it doesn’t seem to flow as with domestics.
Anna’s goal is to raise awareness and advance the relationships among humans and other species, on both the personal and spiritual levels.
Is this something that you discovered at a young age, or did you come across this amazing gift of yours later on in your life? Wild animals, domestic ones, reptiles (snakes), insects (ants)? Pardon me if some of my questions sound a little naive, but it’s such an intriguing and unusual topic.
A lot of my time goes to my pro bono work which focuses on wildlife: rehab, rescue, reintroduction, etc. Instances where you were able to identify the causes behind strange animal behavior patterns for instance?
When I explained that we humans can’t retract our “claws”, he scoffed that he thought that to be a pretty silly design flaw!
Whether a safari in Botswana or swimming with dolphins in Mozambique, we get to connect with the physical and spiritual realities of these amazing species. As a tribute to elephants we decided to interview Anna Breytenbach, a professional interspecies communicator, about her experience with African elephants. As the elephants walk the gridlines and leylines rumbling their songs, so the whales weave the earth energy lines together under the sea with their calling and their songs.
They show immense concern for human individuals especially when an emotional issue needs healing. As the calf literally dropped out a number of female elephants came rushing over from quite a distance off in a visible display of joy and exuberance. It has been proven in Tanzania that certain areas deforested by elephants have opened up new patches of sunlight in the vegetation that has allowed the return of a very rare and previously disappeared butterfly species. Culling will allow the authorities to reopen the meat abattoirs in the national park, win political favour by supplying elephant meat and temporary employment to surrounding communities, as well as reinstitute a revenue stream for profit.
I’ve been told that scientists have come to notice that the elephants at the Kruger Park have naturally slowed their reproduction due to lack of space within the fenced confines. They believe that they’d been passed severe energetic repercussions for having culled the elephants. One calf I’d encountered was about six months after the cull, and even though he’d been in a sanctuary and well cared for with a keeper and friends, I had a sense that his soul had somewhat popped out of the body, like a disconnect.


They are unable to learn through direct experience about the natural and balanced ways of being with each other and with the environment. The elephant was chosen as the symbol of the yearning of forgotten conversations between humans, the earth and all living things. Many fights have ensured amongst the villagers … those for and those against the killing of baboons. Once I visited a relatives home and discovering they had a large cage with colourful budgies, I went over to talk to them. When it comes to how we communicate with the animals we coexist on this planet with, the picture that presents itself is even more dismaying.
Breytenbach describes how she tries to bridge that space and how it’s become her life’s mission to help our specie reconnect with the rest of nature. Breytenbach is brought in and not given any information about his background, but she’s able to communicate with him using her mind and transmitting her thoughts and feelings to him, and he does the same. It’s such an amazing moment when you see animals and humans interacting with each other on a level that goes beyond conventional thinking. A fan of film classics, documentaries and World Cinema, Patrick prefers films with an impeccable way of storytelling that reflect on the human condition. Anna's goal is to raise awareness and advance the relationships among humans and other species, on both the personal and spiritual levels. The communicator in the film, Anna Breytenbach, is a professional animal communicator who has practiced for over a decade with the domestic and wild animals in South Africa, Europe and the US. Her goal, like ours, is to raise awareness and advance the relationship between humans and animals. The way we handle elephant conservation can be interpreted as how far we have advanced as a species. The stability of the earth’s grid depends on these two species being allowed to do their very important, selfless work.
I like to refer to elephants as “habitat architects” because their movements and “landscaping” (which many would rather term “deforestation”) reintroduces new cycles of life. Elephant calves never get culled; instead they are sold to the elephant safari and wildlife trade industries at enormous profit. This is because elephant consciousness has the ability to adapt to availability of resources. Even the lure of financial rewards at a current time of extreme unemployment in South Africa has not convinced these folks to pick up their guns again. He was going through the motions of everyday life in an automatic and numbed out kind of way. This leads to dysfunctional inter-elephant relationships, very errant herd dynamics and essentially ends up with a bunch of ignorant and inexperienced adolescents trying to run and hold together an elephant society.
Considering we once lived in complete harmony with all sentient beings, if you could offer one piece of advice, what in your opinion can we humans do to remember and reinstitute peaceful co-existence with animals and each other. We also have the endangered Samango monkey species whom are also eating our home grown foods to their own detriment. I took my host outside and pointed out the hole large enough for a snake to come through and catch the hapless birds. The film introduces us to Anna Breytenbach, a South African-based professional animal communicator with a degree in Psychology, Economics and Marketing. She then describes how humans have violated the living spaces of animals, how we no longer know how to behave around them, how we’ve been abusing them and banishing them from a world that’s as much theirs as it is ours. They’re immediately at ease with each other and the panther tells her he doesn’t like the name “Diablo”, he wants it changed and he’s not sure what’s expected of him in this new place.
In her communication and conservation work, Anna lives her personal mission of being a voice for the animals and the wilderness.
The Knysna forest located along the South African east coast is a place where indigenous wild elephants still remain. Elephants bring cycles to pass in a specific ecosystem – cycles of regeneration rather than destruction – and if we had the patience to wait years or decades we would see how everything returns in a natural cyclical order. If only we could allow the elephants a few more years to naturally self-regulate their numbers, there wouldn’t be the need for this drastic measure of culling. I can’t help but feel it’s for monetary gain plus a patriarchal-based human need for dominance of over the animal kingdom. Killing and maiming them does not deter them and I believe that they need to be talked to in order to understand the gravity of their situation and that it is better for them to remain in the wild. He hopped from his perch, walked over to a spot in the floor of the cage and kept looking at a small hole in the mesh.
This all makes it sound like one of those adverts on television that try to get you to give money to various organisations by showing us sad faces of mistreated animals, but The Animal Communicator isn’t anything like that.
We first see Breytenbach entering a compound of baboons, a group that’s known to be aggressive because of all the human interference in their lives, and walking easily among them, sitting with them and taking part in their activities and all the while she’s communicating with them through her body language and her mind that she is no threat.
From this conversation, Breytenbach is able to show his keepers how best to communicate with the animals they take care of and they’re then able to make Spirit (as he’s been renamed) feel more comfortable and appreciated for the majestic creature he is. If we could retune our frequencies back to the planet and the life around us, rather than looking for technology to make our lives easier and for science to explain it all to us in a nutshell, we could again live in harmony with what someone like Breytenbach has to teach us. Additionally, animal welfare organisations’ opinion is that the cull may be delayed until after the 2010 World Cup to be hosted by South Africa for PR expedience purposes. An elephant tracker mentioned that trackers had come across a bush pig that had died and the following day upon returning to the carcass had discovered that it had been buried under a mound of earth.
The Cape Town Baboons have already lost so many of their troupe members through too much interaction with humans.
We have the opportunity to turn our situation around in Hogsback before the baboons become too familiar with humans. The area was covered with elephant footprints lasting several hours and it was concluded that the elephants had gone to the effort of giving the bush pig a proper burial. They are also trying to teach us humans lessons about the appropriateness of moving with the seasons and in accordance with natural cycles so that we don’t overly deplete an area. The times that there are altercations between humans and elephants that turn violent are an attempt on their behalf to signal their distress at what we are doing to our planet. It is almost inevitable that when we humans push around the largest animal on earth, it needs to be reflected to us that we can’t do that and get away with it. Without exception, I find elephants very wise, even when they are acting out some of the shadow.
