There are so many benefits of pets on health and well-being. Not only are they great companions, they understand you on levels that are often impossible for another human being to match.
Pets are like members of your family who offer unconditional love and acceptance, especially at times when you are at a loss for words. They can sense things within you and act as a mirror to help you learn more about yourself. From a higher level perspective, you each serve as companions for each other along the personal growth path.
On this episode of Flirting With Enlightenment, Jamie talks (and I gush) about the powerful benefits of pets as companions, teachers and emotional support systems. We cover the spiritual role of pets and the deep heart-centered intelligence they reflect back to you, standing clear in who they are free of ego influence. We also briefly discuss some of the shamanic meanings of animals, and why we may be attracted to the qualities of some animals over others.
In many ways I consider pets a part of my family, and lots of other people feel the same. Opening your heart to care for, learn from and appreciate animals is one of the many benefits of pets and the significant impact they make on our lives in unexpected ways. It’s also one of the fastest ways to expand your experience of unconditional love on all levels.
What are some of the benefits of pets you’ve noticed in your own life? Do you have a favorite pet or animal? Why? What characteristics does it have that you admire or enjoy?
