Sharing our lives, opening our hearts to pure unconditional love. They are the best friends that we can ever have. They won’t let us down, they are always happy to see us, they don’t judge us in any form, they don’t look at us with utter disdain if we put on weight. They trust us implicitly, with a wag of a tail or the twitch of a whisker telling us that they intuitively know how we feel. The look in their eyes says it all – I love you.
Our companion animals, our pets. We, as humans think that we have chosen our pets, in many situations it seems as if we have. However, many times on a higher level of awareness, they have chosen us. How many times do you see people that look like their dogs or is it that their dogs look like them! The feline fellowship and affinity that comes from the cats that slink into our lives helps us attune to life.
All animals, including farm animals are sentient beings, irrespective of the physical form. They have feelings, form family bonds, love unconditionally, feel happiness, feel and express pain and fear – all deserve our love and respect. We as humans sometimes think that we are somehow “higher up the ladder” than animals. Let’s not forget we are human animals too!
People sometimes say that animals don’t speak so how do we know that they have feelings? They speak via telepathic communication. This is something that we can all do with our companion animals. All you have to do is to be quiet long enough to listen. This is the work that I am guided to do as an Animal Communicator, and certified VortexHealing® Divine Energy Healing practitioner, helping cement the bond between the companion animal and owner.
If a pet has been adopted from a rescue into a loving home sometimes there are issues that need to be addressed. Even though the pet can see and knows it is now in a loving environment, the prior trauma from being in an abusive situation involving neglect, physical or emotional abuse, often takes its toll and behavioral issues can arise from this root cause. Being in a shelter for an extended period of time can also be traumatic for sensitive animals. They are surrounded by all different types and sizes of animals who are equally in a stressed state. I often say to clients, “try to imagine how you would feel if you were in that situation.” Human beings also find that change can be stressful, that we all need time to acclimatize to new surroundings and situations – eg: death, divorce, loss of job, moving home, moving state and moving country.
I ascertain the situation to obtain clarity by talking to the client about the issues. I also energetically connect with the pet and the whole situation that has arisen.
I visit the home, or if it is out state, work through a photograph. I tell the client that when they open the door to me that I will crouch down and first of all connect with the pet. A dog will always be at the front door with it’s owner, cats have their own agenda and I wait for them to physically come to me when they feel ready and have connected to my energy. All animals are intuitive by nature. Seemingly humans seem to have lost their way in the intuitive department, it’s still there within us, it just lies dormant and needs awakening.
