Do Animals Go Crazy for You?

Readers, please enjoy this guest blog post by Danielle MacKinnon, author of the new Animal Lessons.

Are you one of those people who, when you walk in the door of someone’s house, their dog comes barreling over and wants to give you kisses no matter how much you protest? Does your cat take your seat the moment you’re about to sit in it? When the animals in your life aren’t heeding you, there’s no need to worry. It’s actually a sign that something pretty wonderful is happening: the lesson the animals have to teach you is finally manifesting!

Animals are much smarter than many of us give them credit for, and they work at much deeper levels than most suspect. They will intuitively hone in on that “thing” you need to work on within yourself, and they’ll highlight it for you until you are able to focus and grow in that area.

So, if your animals aren’t listening to you, it’s because they’ve connected to the core of your being and they know this is something you need to work on to become the happiest, healthiest, most empowered person you can be—not just in the relationship with your animal, but in the rest of your life as well. And not only will they keep highlighting that area you need to work in, but they’ll keep at it until you finally give in and start working on that piece.

Perhaps that means that you start setting better boundaries with your dog, or perhaps you get your cat her own seat and let her know that yours is off limits. Whatever it is that you need to do to shift the energy, they’re going to continue not listening to you until you shift that part of yourself within!

By the way, lessons from animals aren’t always about being more empowered. The animals in your life could be helping you feel more loved or more confident. Take a look at the animals in your life—is there a repeated pattern? That’s the key to figuring out what they’re trying to teach you!
