Animal Behavior

Do your animal friends sleep harmoniously together? Acceptance can help us then move to a place of change and healing. Focusing on unmet expectations can leave us frustrated and stuck.

Whether your cat is going potty outside of the litter box, your dogs don’t get along or your rabbit seems bored, it can cause stress when our animals’ behaviors don’t meet our desired expectations or we are concerned they aren’t doing okay. Just as with humans, animals experience emotions, anxiety and pain.They can be out of balance and feel disturbed, just as we can.

Illness and discomfort can show up in different ways, with us and our animal friends. Because we all impact each other and our pets reflect us, it can be helpful to focus on ourselves and what is going on with us. The calmer we are, the calmer our animal friends can be. They may still be going through things that are causing them stress or discomfort, but at least our stress and issues won’t be added on to their own.

Isn’t this a cute rabbit!

In my opinion, two of the most important things to realize are:

  1. We ask and expect our domesticated, and sometimes wild animal friends to automatically and easily display behaviors that are not natural for them. When we acknowledge this, we can find greater compassion and validate how well our animal friends actually adapt to our confusing and odd human rules.

    What a gorgeous cat!

  2. Our animal friends and how they reflect us can can give us great insight into ourselves. Does your pet seem bored, afraid or reactive in certain situations? Are you ever bored, afraid or reactive? Of course you are! Just like people, animals can experience aspects of life in all different ways! There isn’t just one way or one “right” way. When we accept things as they are, then we can create change from there, if it is desired. Simply changing our perspective and mindset can help us relax and find lightness in the struggle.

Animal Communication Tip

What are you doing right now? Experience it to help draw your attention to the present moment.

Animals communicate with each other. They are also communicating with us. We need to slow down so we can be more present and validate their communication to us.

Here’s an animal communication tip for you. Be in the present moment! Why? Because the more present you are the clearer your communication will be with everyone, including your special animal friends.

Animals are in the present moment. When you are focused in the moment you will be more present with your animal friends. Being in the present moment will also help your body to be calmer and more relaxed, While in a calm state you will be able to communicate that calmness instead of sharing tension, anxiety or fear.

Do you ever wonder, “What’s up dog?!” What about cat, horse, bird, rabbit, fish or your other animal friend? Be in the present moment and enjoy the communication that is happening!

What is going on with you impacts all around you. How do you feel when you are anxious? Afraid? Frustrated? What does your body feel like when it is depressed? Now consider how you feel when you are relaxed, happy or inspired.
Focusing your attention on your body can help you be more in the present. The more present you are with your body the less it will feel anxious, afraid, apathetic or depressed. Notice your breathing. What about the temperature? Is your body cold or warm? Do you smell anything or taste anything right now? Maybe you’re hungry or thirsty or could really use a nap! Use your body’s senses and sensations to help draw your attention more to the present moment.
Be in the present and enjoy clearer communication with yourself, your body and all of those around you including your lovely best friends – the animals in your life!
