Through the loss of a pet nearly a decade ago, we discovered the incredibly powerful technique that we’re about to share.ย 

The idea of ESP or using your energyto train your parrot is real, and we teach you how to add focused energy as a cue for a trick.

If you can intentionally use energy to cue a complex behavior, just imagine what your animal is accidentally learning because you’re not aware of how to use this technique!

In this episode of the Parrot Training Podcast, we expose the closely guarded secrets to ESP… well, at least to how we use Energy Training to cue our parrots!

      I agree 100%

      I don't think calling sadness "toxic" is healthy. That's how stigmas against mental illness are created. Saying that as a physician. We gotta be kind to ourselves about sadness, not judgmental, you know? It also doesn't make sense because in human medicine I have seen birds can be good emotional support animals, even for depressed people. I have birds that will literally comfort when they can tell someone is sick or depressed. I don't doubt your superior bird experience, but I am more likely to believe your masculine mourning body language was subtly "on guard" as a mammal after losing a member of your pack, and that your bird saw and feared that mammalian "on guard"ness. Definitely not hear to bash anyone's spirituality, and of course energy healing exists and your experiences matter, but I am not likely, based on human science, to believe that sadness is evil or "bad energy." Suffering isn't toxic, and you should be allowed to mourning without feeling guilty for it. : (

      Edit: if anyone is suffering depression and happens to read this, I have put links to help resources in my "about." You matter and you aren't toxic or bad for being sick.

      I've re-trained horses that had become "problem horses" after their owners constantly snarled around the barn complaining about one thing or another. I had to suggest that they sell the horse because it was "too sensitive" when the real difficulty was an owner who could not learn to recognize that it was their own "bad moods" that were causing the horses to bite, stamp their hooves and angrily toss their heads! Thanks so much for explaining this difficulty in a way that could really help parrot owners to become more sensitive to the effects that their own attitudes were having on their birds.

      Wow so birds are complicated๐Ÿคฏ. Moral donโ€™t adopt a bird if your depressed๐Ÿ˜‚ it wont give a damn about you.

      Love this video. Toxic energy is a real thing and just because it can't be explained scientifically does not mean that it is not real. My Noble Macaw freaks out whenever my father in law visits and sits in the kitchen. My inlaws ask me, "How do you live like this?" in reference to the loud screaming. "We don't" I say, because Molly does not usually scream. My father in law gives off a very controlling and demanding energy that ruffles the space-time fabric and it makes my Molly scream. I have always gotten the same vibe from him too so this is why I understand. Molly does not scream for other visitors, just father in law.

      What a great video. You guys hit the nail on the head. Some people are always nervous or always a victim, etc. People blame the bird for its behavior but the bird is the captive and the human calls the shots in every way even emotionally. Parrot owners need to be honest with themselves. Poor birds and poor dogs don't get to pick their owners.

      Just watching this video and I find it really interesting.
      I have an Amazon, Lordi, got him at 20 years old from a shelter.

      Anyway, I myself have a long list of chronic illnesses. When I train Lordi when I'm in a lot of pain, I try not to show it, but he knows it and he behaves amazing! He also gets really cuddly and I really see that he knows that I'm in pain.
      When I'm not in pain he is always more pushing his luck during training, or and is less cuddly and more ok on his own. When I have a really bad day, he doesn't wanna leave my side.

      My bad days does help with learning Lordi new tricks๐Ÿ˜‚

      YOU GUYS ARE ALWAYS THE BEST!!! THANKS FOR THE INFO, I often listen several times to the same podcast to retain more information every time I hear it.
      You know, I just recalled something from my youth (I'm now in my 50's), it may be a little long winded, but it ABSOLUTELY SPEAKS to what you are talking about here. I loved to read and I had catalogs that I ordered my books from. They gave actual excerpts from the books, not just a critic's explanation of the books. One particular excerpt was from a book that the author claimed to communicate with animals and described how he had non-verbally communicated to a house fly that it irritated him when the fly landed on him and that he was happy when the fly was in the sunny window AND THE FLY QUIT LANDING ON HIM AND STAYED NEAR THE WINDOW. I immediately thought, "WOW, maybe it's not that the fly 'sees' my swatter coming, but that it 'feels' my 'intention' (I'M GOING TO KILL YOU!!). So what if, instead, I think, "Here fly, ummm yummy." and PICTURE in my mind raw hamberger and the fly sitting on it, rubbing its front legs together and dipping it's snout into the hamberger and feeling happy about it." Would you believe my kill rate went from axp. 50% to 98% IMMEDIATELY! No Joking, No Lie, to this day I still use this method. I suspect the author would likely be appalled that I used his information in that manner, but oh well. Also, perhaps birds can actually see auras in a manner simular to the way certain, specific types of cameras can photograph auras, that could explain one way they pick up on emotions.

      This is absolutely familiar from training my horse!

    • meg's utube

      This is true with training horses too. They sense your intention too, even when your on their back out of their sight. As a preschool teacher of many years I often find techniques I used with children. I suggest you check out , THE GOALS OF MISBEHAIVIOR. This works on, What am I feeling, than from this awareness one can figure out the true goal of the child's (bird's) misbehavior. It usually comes down to one of 5 goals and often the way we feel like responding is opposed to what we really need to do to remedy the situation. I hope you see this!

      Your jag off neighbor should have felt so lucky To be in the presence of such a beautiful animal!!!

    • Whatever

      It is body language. They are just more tuned into it.. It is the same with horses. As it turns out though you can lie with body language for a lot of the horses but there were always ones that if you "wanted" a fight they would give it to you. So those you gave turn out to that day and worked them a different day.

      It might sound less "hippieish" if you say that the parrots observes and reacts to your emotional state or emotions rather than saying energy. Just in case you want to sounds less "hippieish".
