Many of my clients live with pets – or, as I say, with “furry roommates!” They already know the comfort of having a pet, yet some of you seem surprised when I suggest that your pets can help you to process and heal emotional, spiritual or even physical ailments.
There are many ways – one of which I shared with you in “How to ‘Listen’ to Your Pet” – yet there are no limits to how you can benefit from the love between you and your pet. I’m sure you’ve already noticed that when you cry, or are upset, that your pets react, and that reaction is a clue to help you understand yourself in that moment. Do they come to comfort you or hide from you? That can help you to see if you are processing something that you are meant to experience in order to grow – or have you chosen to process something in a way that is unhealthy for your well being or future?
Pets – especially horses, dogs, and cats – are tuned in to your deepest thoughts and to your highest spiritual self. They psychically know when you are on your way home, some as much as thirty minutes in advance of your arrival! Some of them, especially dogs, station themselves in the driveway or entranceway to your home to welcome you! They have also proven that people heal and feel better when there is a pet present during recovery or treatment; in fact, many convalescent homes have pets either visit or remain on site. There is a much deeper connection that goes beyond words and language, and over time that becomes more defined and clear in your relationship with your pet.
Many of the psychics you talk to are able to communicate with pets, so you can double check your own intuition about what they are trying to tell you with your favorite reader. If you pay attention to their body language, and take their “advice,” you will be able to see yourself from another perspective, and perhaps shift the energies that are causing you pain or confusion.
Pets encourage us to move, to play, and to sleep. They try to show us how to relax or become more content with our surroundings, and they can also lift your spirits and alleviate loneliness. There are many physical ailments that are relieved with the benefits of stress relief, as well as the chemicals released in the brain while actively “loving” someone or something. All these things factor into overall health. Your pets can and will give more than the gift of love if you let them. Now go snuggle your furry roommate!
