I was today searching something in my computer and saw this writing from a few years ago. It was relevant then and also now. I have not been doing a lot of communications lately but always the message of animals astonishes me. I decided to share the original writing with you.
“Yesterday, while waiting to fall asleep, I thought about many things, especially the essence of dogs and the messages that animals have conveyed through me.
I'm thinking about us humans. How difficult it is sometimes in the midst of everyday haste to be positive, no matter how much you know that negativity creates nothing but negativity. When you look with your heart, you see something good in everybody and everything.
It feels like there are two sides in dogs or animals in general. That breed or species like “everyday me” that is reflected in everything a dog/animal does or does not do and then that other side, part of a larger whole. This kind of thinking started when I communicated on request with a dog I know. That stubborn and stiff guy in everyday life, "told" amazing things about his owners and to the owners. I was left wondering about the difference how he reveals himself in everyday life and how profound the message was. So have my own dogs also done, in everyday life "just" dogs, and then in sayings something completely different. I have said before that the fact that I communicate with my own animals every now and then does not make them any more obedient, nicer or better as they are. If they don't obey, it's because of my ability to teach them. You get what you need, not what you order when it comes to animals.
What kind of a dog/animal everyone needs tells what she/he as a person, as a dog trainer, as an owner etc needs to develop as a human being. I do think that animals are indeed here to teach us to be better and should be appreciated simply for that reason.
Appreciate, accept and genuinely love, that's mankind`s greatest educational experience. Animals already know how to do it!”
