Animals As Companions

 

Animal Companions’ Roles

 

Animals are best known to humankind in their role as companions. Our animal companions often become beloved members of our family. For some people, they are a protector, confidante and playmate all in one. It can be as difficult to lose a pet as it is to lose a family member.

 

Our animal companions also serve an important role on a spiritual level than we often realize. Some animals may help their human caretakers with opening up to give and receive love in their lives. Others may be helping you to release past life karma such as negative or abusive behavior toward animals or the particular animal that’s adopted.

 

They also assist you with communication, as it may be easier for you to tell your feelings, hopes and dreams to someone who will listen unconditionally, without fear of being judged.

 

Sometimes pets take on our emotional or physical issue, choosing to do this because of their love for us or because we aren’t able to handle things on our own.

 

Whatever role our animal companions have chosen to play in our life, they do it with unconditional love and deserve to be honored and respected. It is all too easy to take our animal friends for granted.  Read more

Spirituality is having the Tao in our heart. It is to embrace the beauty and sacredness of life, to embrace the little things, to embrace the softness and the silence, the yin. It’s the process of becoming an invisible person.  Read more
