Are your animals the biggest problem? Human Animal Body-Mind Mirror

“That’s just spooky!” A recent client told me when I pointed out that both she and her dog had a problem in the exact same vertebrae in their backs! I assured her that this happens all the time and that it has to do with the connection between the human body and the animal mind.

Did you know that animals reflect you in your mind, body and spirit? They reflect us. Animals are spiritual teachers and sometimes barometers of our souls! So when they have a problem, they talk to us. The question is: are we listening!?

The Human Body and Animal Mind Connection is a deeper appreciation of the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual connections between humans and animals and often serves to reflect back to us the lessons we are here to learn.

It has been said that more than 90% of our problems are based on emotional, psychological or psychosomatic problems! When we are in denial, disconnected, or disconnected, our emotional wounds are deep beneath the surface of our subconscious. The world around us, our animals and our children, will reflect these problems back to us by acting or reacting to our distress.

Our animals know us better than almost any other creature on the planet. They see what’s in our minds, feel what we feel, and are often closer to our hearts than anyone else.

What is your animal trying to tell you? Are you having “problems”? Then it’s time to start really listening to your animals! When we feel pain, they can feel pain too. Susan Cernak McElroy, author of Animals as Teachers and Healers, tells her story of how her dog had the same rare cancer she suffered from. In the book, she credits her dog with teaching her how to survive cancer! This gave her the idea for the book – so she continued to collect other people’s stories about how their animals reflected them in some way.

So the Human Body-Animal Body-Mind connection is about looking beneath the surface to discover what the real problems are, why they show up the way they do, whose problem it really is (and it could be both!) and what to do , to restore the balance of the connection.

“Just last night I was watching my sweet old dog recovering from having a tumor removed from her forehead, just off center and above her right eye. My gaze shifted to her brother, whose brown patches above his eyes were now misaligned due to surgery to repair a wound received above his right eye in a fight with another dog. I myself had a patch of precancerous skin removed from above my right my eye; I was allergic to the antibiotic and now I have a bump from a scar there.. Last night as the three of us were looking at each other it hit me; us and our healing wounds actually reflected each other!” — Shelby

Our animal companions are in many ways our best friends, the creatures who know and love us better than anyone else, who have chosen to spend their lives with us, help us heal, love us when we are sad or sick, often showing us what unconditional love means repeatedly demonstrating what it takes to live fully in every way… reminding us what is important and what is not!

Unfortunately, they also reflect our problems and wounds, reflect our pain and anger, absorb our grief, sadness and malaise. When they get sick or exhibit behavior that is inappropriate and even life-threatening, they ask for help, telling us that the burden they carry for us is more than they can bear!

My eight-year-old cat, Peach, could no longer get up off the ground, could hardly eat, could barely walk, was weak and very irritable. I finally decided to stop guessing what was wrong and just ask her what was going on. She said she was helping my husband and I by trying to drain all the negative emotions we were struggling with, kind of like a sponge in her own body. She had taken so much of our grief, anger and disappointment into herself that she was dying. I told her she was not allowed to do such a thing, and she replied that it was the only way she knew to help us! That she thought it was her job!

I told her NO! I didn’t want her to carry my pain, grief or anger and neither did my husband! We wanted her to help us by bringing us back to our center, our peace, our power. And from that place we could learn our lessons and heal our relationship, but that it wasn’t her job to carry our pain in her own body, that it actually added to our stress and upset!

After understanding and accepting her new role, she returned to good health in just a few days and went on to live to the ripe old age of 19 and a half! So the first question we have to ask is: how are we involved in the problem of the animal?

For example, with fearful or aggressive problems, often the person is subconsciously afraid, so the animal either acts on its fear or becomes more protective, which of course looks like aggression! Or the animal is reacting to fear, which by the way is a huge instinctive trigger for them!

When we look a little deeper, exploring subconscious issues, we usually find something we haven’t been able to come to terms with. Then through counseling and other healing modalities our health and behavior improves!

I promise you that what your animals are doing makes perfect sense to them – from their point of view! Our job is to listen to them so we can learn about their experiences, share their wisdom, and learn about any inconveniences so we can take appropriate action.

Many Angels, Teachers, Healers and Teachers are disguised as animals – do you know who you live with?
