Connections; humans and animals alike seem to be bound by an invisible link –a lifeline – that ties us together like a silk rope, or cord; there are many words to describe this link. The one link that is the most fascinating is the unspoken one. The one that when a human adopts a pet at the animal shelter, and a dog runs straight to that person – a shout-out: ‘It’s me you want, your new best friend!’
So technically, ropes or cords don’t talk… (At least not that we here at RMSAAM have heard of!) the word ‘unspoken’ is simply that; words that don’t need to be said aloud. And how do we as humans interpret the unspoken, and most mysteriously and curiously, do animals interpret it?
First, we look at the word ‘connection’. Because everything around us, including humans and our animal counterparts are bundles of energy, we forget that our physical boundaries are just that, physical. These are the doors we open, the car doors we lock and unlock, and any walls, or other obstacles we may walk into. But without running the risk of getting too ‘out there’, we will keep this simple. Energy has no boundaries. Therefore, energetic, or ‘psychic’ connections we have with each other as humans, also apply to animals. This is why it is possible to communicate with them. And how they know when we are sad, or emotional, or need a big hug or kiss.
So, why you? Why did that dog come straight over to you at the animal shelter? Why did that horse dance and prance around its pen or field to greet you, and ask you to stop and say hello? Energy is alive and well, and beautiful and has no words. The only words are the actions that come from such a miraculous connection.
Think back. Reach back into your memory, and think about the same experience you had with a human. The recognition was unexplainable, nearly impossible. Yet, the connection was undeniable. The question ultimately, is not, ‘why me’, but rather, ‘Why not me?’
Our animal friends have a soul, a gentle and loving spirit that moves us, and with us; when we open ourselves up to our animal friends’ love, we open up to universal love – a love that is undeniable, and totally real and accessible. Our pets are our teachers in this arena!
