Hi, dear friends and followers. Today I would like to share with you on the topic of Empathy, Intuition and animals. Thank you for coming and I hope you enjoy reading this entry.
You might be empathic towards animals if:
You and your pets know what the other thinks or feels;
Shortly after such an animal was in your thoughts, or you saw a certain animal in a picture or on TV, you encounter a similar type of animal, possibly with someone walking by with a similar pet or an animal you see in the park or in the woods;
Sometimes you feel trapped or confined even though you have plenty of room to move around. Or you catch yourself talking to animals and even insects that attract your attention;
When you look into your pet’s eyes and not only feel what they feel but think you can see right into their being. You feel like you can understand an animals feelings better than you do those of people;
You strongly relate to certain types of animals, (e.g., certain animals and even insects that attract me most, which for me would be too extensive to list here). I was born and raised in woodland country where I spent much of my time in the woods;
Pets find YOU, even though you are not particularly looking for them. (This includes having other family members’ furry friends “adopt” you despite your indifferent manner and lack of attention.).
I find it hard sometimes to enjoy a meal that has animal meat product in it, wondering if that animal suffered before getting to my dinner plate.
At first, this fact seemed counter-intuitive until I further explored my intuitive “hits.”
Highly sensitive people perceive the energy of foods. The cleaner your diet and lifestyle, the more you’ll perceive that energy. For an example: Have you ever looked into a fish’s eyes or seen a fish wriggling on a hook? Does that sensation seem familiar to you?
How can you tell where you are on the animal empathy continuum? Experiment with it!
You can eliminate animal products from your life for two days and then reintroduce them. Pay attention to your immediate reaction as well as to how you feel the following two days. If unsure, ask others to observe your mood and behavior without telling them why you want to know. If neither you, nor anyone else notices a difference in your energy, mood, level of gratitude or happiness or how animals respond to you, then you can stop here or keep experimenting–your choice.
If you want to continue eating meat, dairy and eggs, then gently acknowledging the sacrifice of the animal’s being for your meal can help you do so in peace. “Tuning in” to animals goes both ways. If you can feel the effects of the animal in the product, then you can also tune in to the animal’s spirit to offer a quick thank you.
A person who is empathetic towards animals gathers information in the same way an intuitive empathetic person does. The main difference is that this is an area of specialized intuitive work. Not all who are intuitive or empathetic can feel animals, and vice versa.
For me, since I have been around wilderness and domestic animals since the age of five, I can easily tune into their emotions when I am around them and aware of them and even If I am not aware of them they make themselves noticed.
I can easily discern why an animal is behaving a certain way and what effect, if any, an owner may have on the animal.
As an intuitive, I can feel what is causing the emotional reaction of a certain domestic pet or wilderness animal. It is all about what they feel from you. If you are an angry or a negative person who simply doesn’t care, or even notice the animal is there, then naturally the animal will do its utmost to make itself scarce. For the animal it works quite the opposite as well if it feels friendly, loving energy from that person.
Remember that our pets and livestock are very sensitive and intuitive as well. They are able to pick up on our own emotional states and patterns fairly easily. Often times animals will act them out or resist against them which in turn causes them unnecessary stress and physical discomfort.
Thank you very much again, dear friends, for visiting my blog. Please share your thoughts with us, if you will. Have a great day.
