The Human Animal Bond
Animals give us so much – unconditional love, companionship, protection, entertainment. But beyond that they also share an energetic bond. This bond allows them to share, know and feel our most intimate thoughts and emotions. In some animals, this can also result in their sharing our physical symptoms and illnesses. I’ve never found it useful to ask them to stop – after all, most people just want their animals happy and healthy, not sharing in “their stuff”.
What we can do is to continue to work on our own personal growth and to learn teachings of energy hygiene which we can apply to our animals, our children and ourselves. The following link takes you to a good resource for that.
