the power of feelings

Comments: 0 Comments

I often to say to people ‘animals haven’t complicated things by developing a language to the extent we humans have’. It’s something I feel passionately about.

Have you ever had a feeling that you have found difficult to describe or to put into words? Have you been in a situation where you have wanted to explain something to someone and your message has been completely lost in translation? Despite your best efforts they just haven’t understood what you wanted to convey? Perhaps you could picture what it was, but you couldn’t find the words to bring the image to life? Have you ever been so grateful to someone or for something and found it difficult to find words enough to convey your gratitude? It’s likely that most of us at some time in our lives will have found ourselves in a ‘lost for words’ situation.

Animals don’t need to find the words. They communicate with one another and us with feelings and images. For example, when you are thinking of taking your dog for a walk and next you know they are stood by the door. Perhaps you have been thinking of opening a tin of tuna for your cat? Then they suddenly appear from nowhere, looking at you expectantly. In both instances they have sensed what you are thinking by picking up on your feelings and the images that these feelings create in your mind.

 The beautiful thing about this level of communication is the transparency of it. There’s no ‘cover up’. Our feelings speak ‘our truth’. It’s why working at this level with animals is so powerful.

Sometimes it can be hard for us to face our feelings. Sometimes consciously we will put on a brave face to the world in an attempt to hide our feelings. Other times there may be feelings in our sub conscious that we are not aware of at a conscious level.

Animals can feel these different levels. It’s why sometimes it can feel like they understand us when no one else does.

Animals see beyond the words and can help us find our own truth.
