Animals are sacred gifts to humanity, helping us heal to become our highest version of ourselves.
Our animal companions have shown us to trust, to have compassion but the most vital thing we’re learning today from them is to surrender. Surrendering is merely accepting what is. It is connecting with our inner self.
Animals live in the present moment of joy and unconditional love. When I get home my dog is so excited to see me. No matter how “bad” my day was, his energy level is so high, he draws me in, and it raises my level of energy. I get on the floor to meet his gaze, I have a mini conversation with him, and then we play for a few minutes. Everything else is out the door.
They teach us how to live in the joy of the present moment. To be more child-like and play. They teach us to stay in our heart space and hold it – which is a choice we have to make.
Our pets come to our side and express their great love for us, reminding us daily that we are loved but more importantly that we are WORTHY of love.
Our pets also bring healing. There is no greater healing power in the Universe than that of unconditional love. Even when we are enmeshed in anger or blame, they sit joyfully at our side, radiating contentment and instilling peace within us.
For us to be balanced and whole, we have to allow ourselves to surrender the old to let the new to come through. With our animal companions by our side, the gift they are showing us is to keep our hearts open and live in the moment with grace and joy.
