Pets and Stress Relief: Moment to Moment Authentic Happiness

Pets and Stress Relief Pets and stress relief is such a no brainer topic.

They can be little mischievous stinkers at times, but for the most part, they give humans SO much in terms of unconditional love, support and happiness.

I'm sure most of you already have an innate understanding of the concept of pets and stress relief, but let's look at this a little closer.

For instance, a 2006 study by the St. Louis University of Medicine found that senior citizens in nursing homes felt much less lonely after spending time along with a dog than they did when they visited with a dog and other people.

What is that magic pets possess? Here are my thoughts...

First, Animals Live in the MOMENT

In the moment is the gift of NOW.

It is only in the moment of now that you can truly experience authentic happiness .

Many humans cannot comprehend that gift however, and this is part of the problem in feeling stress relief around your pets. When you have a thousand things running through your head in a chaotic, stressed out zone, guess what...your animal will pick up on your energy and signals and shift to your Stressed energy too.

As an animal healer I will often see energy blockages in the animals that are exactly the same as those of their owners.

This is because if we look deep enough, at a vibrational or quantum level, everything is just energy. So if you are stressed out, chances are you are making your kids, spouse, co-workers and yes, even your pets into stress machines.

Conversely though, your pets have the ability to take you into their world - a stress-free world. If you just allow them. This is the true beauty of pets and stress relief.

Secondly, Animals have only One Goal: To Be Happy

Pets are very authentic and will always aim to be as happy as they can under the circumstances of the environment they live in.

Their goal is to live in harmony with the natural laws of the universe and to be in tune with Mother Nature. We could all stand to learn a thing or two about this very principle.

The beauty is, that as long as we maintain our harmony with Mother Nature, we feel Well. We feel on top of the world and in the zone. For the most part, this is where our pets live: in the zone. And this is why pets and stress relief go hand in hand. They are so amazing at providing stress relief.

Humans, on the other hand, have deviated from the natural laws of the universe and as a result, have created stress related illness from all different types of stresses.

Other reasons for Pets and Stress Relief:

Here are a few of my favourite reasons why our little Ira provides so much stress relief for our family:

  • He reminds me to do my yoga (he contorts him self into crazy poses)
  • He makes me laugh
  • He teaches me about nutrition (I eat a vegan diet, while she eats a full fledged carnivore diet, but we both choose what is right for us)
  • He teaches me about relaxation (as he snores on his pillow after a long walk)
  • She keeps my brain fit by always making me think, because he is always trying to out-smart me!

I am sure there are a number of other ways pets and stress relief co-exist. It ultimately does not matter, as long as you find your Peace, Joy and Authentic Happiness in the NOW.
