Healing is possible in every facet of our relationship with our Pets – even their Names. Have you ever thought about the significance of your Pets’ Names – for you and for them?
My beloved cat, Frankie, passed over several months ago. While I felt sad at the time and continued to grieve his loss, I was comforted that he passed peacefully at home surrounded by the beings that he loved most. I was not ready to place his photo on my dresser beside the pictures of pets who previously passed on, yet it felt like his death as his life, unfolded just as it was meant to. He had a long full life and had recovered from numerous illnesses along the way. One time in particular, he literally died and came back to life in my arms.
Our pets are extremely sensitive to our emotional states. They flourish when we are in a loving, generous, relaxed place. When we are feeling angry, stressed or sad, they sometimes “act out” in response. This offers us the opportunity to look at ourselves and make shifts that lead to greater joy and peace.
