The Power of Pets
There is a video link at the end of this post that sums up the love and loyalty that can happen between a pet and an owner. It also shows how one animal can impact, in a positive way, the lives of many. Animals are pure love and they ignite the love within ourselves. We resonate with this at our very core because this is what we are at our essence, love. Take a minute to watch this video I ran across this morning, as it is quite beautiful and truly shows the power of love and loyalty.
On another note, recently we got a kitten and named her 'Bella'. Bella is about six months old now and is a huge part of the family. This was a picture of her just before we brought her home.
There is something about the energy and love that an animal brings to a home. In fact, last night, my friend Helen dropped by and commented on this. She said something to the effect, “There is just something about walking into a house, especially when there are children present, but missing a pet. It just seems incomplete.” I had to agree because since acquiring Bella, the combined energies and attention paid to each and every member in the household is truly raising the love vibe in our house. It feels complete!
My 7 year old Sivanna shows Bella kindness, cares for her and is thrilled to show Bella to her friends! We also feel so wonderful that we took Bella in as she was found abandoned with her 2 siblings in the cold bushes of Northwestern Ontario. The good news is they have all since found homes! 🙂 This is thanks to #SandiBoucher, a local author and motivational speaker, who orignaly brought them to town.
Sivanna often mentions the fact about how glad she is that we have Bella, especially since she was found outside. It seems very important to her. As a mother, I am grateful for the teachings she has so gladly received on compassion, caring, and loving other creatures on earth.
Sivanna often also remarks to me about how good it is that I feed our outdoor animal friends such as the birds and the squirrels that come to our house. She explains to me the importance of helping them when it is so cold and their food supply is limited.
We really enjoy watching all the critters share and take turns at the offering. The big black crows have a turn, then the squirrel comes and while he takes to tree to eat his offerings, others birds enjoy.
I love that we can co-exist on our planet with all creatures and truly believe my land is not “my land”, but a place for all of it’s inhabitants to co-exist and enjoy the gift of each other.
