This is the third in a five-part series this week about the topics that motivate my clients to see me, the topics that weigh heaviest on their hearts and prevent them from living life to its fullest. It is my hope that just one nugget of my truth resonates with your soul and brings you comfort...
Truth #1: Pets are pure love energy. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand that, true? If you've ever experience having a pet, there was probably a measure of unconditional love attached to it. And therein lies our dilemma: WE are rarely pure love energy. We get involved and attached to the lower vibrating energies of the game of life and often miss what our pets are trying to teach us. (As I write this, my darling cat Binx is standing on the keyboard desperately trying to get me to notice her instead of working, butting her head against mine and shoving her wet nose against my face). Notice and accept their unconditional love!
Truth #2: Pets take on our burdens. They exist to assist us in reaching that pure love energy, and when we don't succeed, they are more than willing to take on those lower emotions for us. Therefore, they often become a reflection of who we are. Who do you want them to become?
Truth #3: Don't carry guilt, remorse and regret about their deaths, especially if you "decided" to put them down. Just like with our human loved ones, your soul is not powerful enough to cause the "death" of a pet's soul without its permission. If you weren't supposed to put them down, then you wouldn't have (or the suggestion to do so wouldn't have been made). All of our souls are directly linked and are part of God. They know EVERYTHING! The soul of your pet knew exactly what it was doing to declare who they are and what they love, and I can bet that their life and death has helped YOU to fully declare who you are and what you love as well. Honor them, and you, for being part of the plan they chose for their life and death.
These truths are not designed to make light of the fact that grief exists and that we dearly miss the human connection with our pets. But it is my hope that these truths lighten the burden you feel so that you can allow your light to shine upon those who need it most here on Earth.
