Being gifted, in one way or another, you come to understand the deep connections we all share to every being on our planet. This connection is very apparent not only to us, but to our furry friends who become part of our families. Pets are a blessing that come into our lives when we most need them and I haven’t spoken to one owner who hasn’t felt some type of “connection” to their four legged child.
Now the question is, “Who chooses who?” I have heard many discussions on this topic and my feeling is that we choose each other. When an animal, or person, is in need of comfort they send out an energy into the universe that seeks to connect with a similar energy pattern. When these two energies meet, they are immediately driven to bring these two souls into physical contact with each other.
I have had this happen to me several times throughout my life, but the bond has been exceptionally strong with two specific furry children. It’s not that I didn’t have a bond with the others, but these two spoke to my heart and soul on a spiritual level. One was my dog Fred, who was a companion from the time I was 14 until I turned 16, which was the period of time that I became aware of my spiritual gifts. Although he was only with me for a short period, Fred was the only one who I felt I could confide in without being judged. While he was here he made that part of my life so much more bearable and I still feel that he is a part of me now, even though he roams the spirit world.
The second pet is currently still with me and I hope to have her for many more years to come. Ashley, my cat, has been such a blessing to my family and even my friends. When I need comfort I don’t even have to call her and she appears, ready to lay on my chest to purr away the fears. I am grateful to have her to lean on and our deep connection only strengthens my belief that we choose each other.
Embracing these connections and becoming aware of how unique each pet connection is, can only change our lives for the better. The bonds we create are eternal and will be carried over with us into the spirit world. Please honor your pet and the love you share.
