Intuition, Animal Communication and Essence

Many clients and students express interest in deepening their intuition and awareness so that they can find ways of communicating with their own pets and/or animals in the wild.  The process I utilize during Animal Communication Sessions (and all intuitive sessions, for that matter!) involves embracing what my husband and I call “essence.” 

My husband, Stephen Bruno, created the following list in 2004.  Although he no longer teaches, he utlizes the same essence process in his photography, which is why so many people feel deeply affected by his work–especially portraits of animals and people.  He titled this list “The Nature of Essence”:

  • You are created in your essence and not as a product of your “enculturation.”
  • Essence is aware of its own existence without interference.
  • Often experienced as love, truth, energy, compassion and peace.
  • There is no intermediate substance necessary for the awareness of essence.
  • It is not what exists.  It is the existence itself.
  • Essence is the organ of perception and experience.  Essence transcends the human senses.
  • Essence is when what perceives and what is perceived is the same object.
  • Essence is the awareness of its own existence directly, intimately, and with certainty.
  • Essence is the different quality of experiencing life.
  • Essence is without judgment, self-importance, or conditioning.
  • Independent of the nervous system and transcends physiological process.
  • Essence can exist without the physical or human host organism.
  • It exists whether there is action or not.
  • Embracing essence creates wisdom, compassion, and healing.
  • Essence is a subtle but exquisite sense of compassion for all life.
  • Essence is a pleasurable quality with an unlimited source of energy.
  • Essence has no identification with previous conscious experience.
  • Your personality is changed in cooperation with embracing essence.
  • There is no end to the development and unfolding of your essence.
  • Will completely quench the heart, soul and offer peace of mind.
  • Essence has no cultural or gender bias.
  • Hidden within, yet it is not part of its nature to be concealed or secret.
  • Essence embraces individual and universal preservation equally.
  • All living things have a unique essence.
  • Essence is within, just as space is within us.
  • Essence is a different structure of existence from the body.
  • Essence is the ultimate reality that empowers all outward manifestations and change.
  • When in touch with essence we have substance.
  • Essence is known best by remembering it.
  • Essence is often not recognized even when it is present.
  • When essence is recognized, it starts to move to a deeper sphere.
  • To be a genuine human being, a complete human being, is to be essence.
  • Essence is covered up as your personality develops.
  • The power, resilience, and strength of essence are unlimited.
  • Exposes personality emptiness, bares its hurts, and makes transparent its falsehood.
  • Self-esteem, when it is authentic, is the value of essence.
  • The rediscovery of essence is the beginning of the true nature of life.
  • It is endless in its aspects, qualities, dimensions, capacities, and possibilities.
  • Life becomes a process of creative discovery when essence is experienced as the true being.

In addition to specific techniques for enhancing intuition and telepathy, my classes often help people to embrace their natural essence. I thought I’d share some information here for those who cannot attend in person.

  3. I’m happy to see this list published! I participated in over a hundred groups and classes that Stephen presented in the 90s, and I remember him always talking about eight things–at first seven, then later eight. I always wanted to label them qualities or fruits but he just called them “the eight things I always talk about.” The bulleted list above refers to these things, some directly and some indirectly. If you see someone being any one of the eight things you know that person is being their essence. If you want to be more of your essence, along with the bullets above, be any one of the eight things: unconditionally compassionate, non-self-important, non-judgmental, vulnerable, curious, present, patient, and generous. If you go to stephen bruno photography, you can see each image, caption, service and course description radiates one or more of these things. Laura eminates a ninth thing, FUN.
