Gifts From the Animals Heather Green
Gifts From the Animals
By Heather Green, Animal Intuitive and Energy Healer
During this time of great transformation on planet Earth, the animals are great teachers and role models for us. They show us how to let go of our heaviest traumas and issues, which leads to emotional freedom and greater life success. They also guide us by mirroring our health issues, energy patterns, emotions, and relationship dynamics through their body language and behaviors. Animals are compassionate by nature. When they experience a hardship or upset, they don’t carry it with them for days and years to come like we do. Instead of letting the fear, anger, or sadness in the moment fester into chronic anxiety, resentments, or depression, they simply let it go.
Horses in the wild who come across a bear will feel the fear that is necessary to ignite their flight upon contact. But once they are out of harm’s way, they go back to being at peace. They don’t worry about whether another predator might come along, or relive the fearful experience in their bodies or minds. The only time animals continue to carry life traumas, are when these happenings are repetitive, like in cases of abuse. If there is no escape for the animal, no way for them to run off the fear, release the sadness, or express the anger or rage, demanding their boundaries, the emotions will remain. As with humans, this causes disharmony and disease on a body, mind, and spirit level. Our biggest lesson here is to treat one another with love and respect, and to honor each other’s boundaries. We also need to let our own and others’ emotional pain surface, so it can be completely experienced and released. This lightens our internal loads, giving us the energy we need to thrive.
Animals are also highly empathic. They have sensitive, absorbent energy fields, which is why they easily pick up the thoughts, emotions, physical sensations, and energies in the world around them. This can lead to emotional imbalances and even illness in our animals. We see this when they develop the same health issues we have, or act out our anxious, angry, or melancholy emotional patterns. Our unhealthy human relationship dynamics are often reflected to us in the power struggles we have with animals, in particular, their avoidance or clinging behaviors.
If we begin to recognize the gifts our animals bring, offering us the purest love and connection, while comforting us through life’s up and downs, we will in turn begin to give the same to them and are fellow humans. Through the animals’ lead, we learn to live in the moment, but we also understand the importance of taking responsibility for our health and other issues that have built up over time. Most of all, through the animals’ example, we discover our authentic emotional natures. As we radiate our truth into the world, we give others permission to do the same for themselves.
