Get inspired by the gratitude and reverence of animals

Animals are capable of so much more than humankind often gives them credit for. Things like intelligence. Love. A moral compass. And even gratitude and reverence.

A few months ago, I talked more about this in my article on the four truths of animal sentience. What’s so amazing is that as we continue to witness animals’ very real range of emotions in the wild, we can choose to learn from them, to be inspired by their heartful, compassionate souls.

When animals are rescued, for instance, they often give big, loving “thank yous” to their rescuers. Here are just a few examples of animals showing gratitude (be prepared to smile!):

  • The crows who come back every year to show gratitude to the rescuers who saved them as babies.
  • The owl who stretched her wings out to hug her rescuer (who is also known as the “birds of prey whisperer”).

Gratitude is just one example. What about reverence and respect for others, which so often seems lacking in our society today? Again, if we look to the animals, we can find inspiration:

  • The lion who surprisingly saved a calf from being attacked.
  • The cats and rats who decided to be friends instead of enemies (I love the snuggle pictures!).

What if you could be more receptive to the gifts and wisdom of the animals? What if you could learn how to heal together? It’s possible—by connecting with Reiki to transform both your life and your relationship with animals. I can show you how in my brand-new, six-week webinar course, Heart to Heart Animal Reiki: Essential Keys for Transformation, which starts October 12. Topics to be covered include: how to face healing challenges with gratitude and reverence, the secret to seeing with your heart, and the best ways to bring Reiki healing into every aspect of your life. Make sure to grab your spot today!

    Indeed, Kathleen, animals “sometimes” love “more” than us humans do. I have seen instances where animals are capable of showing love “more” than we human beings are. It breaks my heart into pieces and burst to tears seeing animals saving even people!

    Animals do NOT have weapons to kill other animals unlike us. Many people even spend a great deal of money to kill their fellow beings – parents, brothers, sisters and children, friends and neighbours as well. Everone now is now witnessing what’s going on around the world. It is shameful for us to be doing this, really and am so shameful being a human. I sometimes think that if I have the ability to transform myself into an animal, I’D DO IT.

    God Bless!!

    Tenemos mucho que aprender ciertamente, pero lo importante de todo es que el hombre, como ser racional de la creación, esta ahora en capacidad de comprender a traves del despertar de sus sentimientos, que le corresponde extender sus manos a los menos favorecidos. Los instintos animales estan en nuestros genes, es así como sobrevivimos, los pequeños, como los llama San Francisco, dependen de nosotros más que nunca para evolucionar también.
    Gracias Kathlenn por despertar nuestros sentidos.
