How to shift your energy to work with the animals effectively.
You need to first be aware of the energy you are projecting. As humans we go through much of our life oblivious to the energy we project and what other project on us. If we can’t see it, many time we dismiss it. But the fact is, the energy around us is what the animals see and react to on a daily basis.
Our thoughts effect our energy, so be conscious of what you think.
When we are not living in the moment our energy appears to be all over the place, erratic and fragmented. By shifting our awareness to being in the moment or present, our energy takes on a calmer more approachable appearance. Also, when we are “in the moment” we are much more able to listen. In our multitasking society, being “in the moment” is much harder than it sounds. Being in the moment does not mean checking our phone, or thinking about the past, worrying about the future etc. It means being still and conscious of all around you in the very moment. In this state we become more aware of the subtle communication that is going on all around us.
Another way to make our energy more receptive to the animals is to ground our energy. Some of us can become easily “wound up” and this energy really turns animals off. It is like listening to a radio with a lot of static. A great visual for what our energy looks like when we are “wound up” or un grounded is to think of our energy like that of a sparkler, shooting all around our body. By grounding our energy and softening or diffusing it, we become less threatening to the animal world. Our energy then takes on a soft hue without the ragged edges and unpredictable surges. This is when the animals will be most receptive. This is true among all species.
