Notes: Sharing Peace of Mind
1) Present in Mother Nature
Bringing an animal into a still space - is where you teach them peace of mind. It is the place of building trust.
Sharing PM with any animal is a true gift.
Our true nature goes everywhere.
i.e. Christmas shopping. So many thoughts and feelings around. Service motorway station (returning back from a Reiki retreat). Tried to get PM. For 10 mins. Yes you can find PM. Then approached by 2 people. (One from NZ - synchronicity with one of group....also someone from the army, talking about friends he'd lost).
Mother nature... This is where we can truly connect.
Walking, riding, thinking time etc...BUT it is NOT being....
Being in nature.....is something different. (I.,e not even a farmer...thinking of mortgage, crop etc....)...
Morning meditation....is very rare.....(we buzz our way around nature....very rare we just rest and BEEEEEEEEEEEE :O)
Being in Nature
DODO the lion
Rescued from illegal pet trade, eastern europe. Imprisoned in a concrete pit all je saw all his entire life.
When he was rescued; completely in awe of nature around him. Sun, grass, wind, trees... He's treasured his existence ever since.
We imprison ourselves in a type of concrete pit, [metaphorically speaking] some of the thoughts and feelings we live in, are just as dark.
Being present in nature....having it come alive within us, is just as awakening as it was for Dodo. Being present in nature has a value beyond normal understanding.
Go somewhere in nature - safe (not with your animals - as hard to get present as they respond to you/you to them).
Sit or stand (quite good to stand... very grounding....)
Be present for 10 minutes
In a nature. Squirrel warned him. Fox was approaching.... sent love to the fox. Notice injury to her jaw. Sent her Reiki. (Like sending love to J's dog).
Thought.....wondered how long is she going to stay? She got up to leave. Feeling of gratitude from her....
Walked through herd of cows....PM whilst standing... followed him....as soon as he thought...they stopped following him...
Being in nature, connection with animals, secondary.....
Sheep. Under tree. Present. Sharing their space with J. But as soon as started filming, it would bring J out of PM.. their nature of how they saw J, started to change.... 1) They are there sharing space, as not being very human.....in a very peaceful state, and don't recognise him as someone walking through a field and thinking of their mortgage... 2) animals on this level, don't trust us humans with that level of thinking.... 3) When started to film.....thinking (ref tutorial etc)...the sheep start to move away....
Great for different perspective on life
Home work/nature work....
5 mins Present per day
10 minutes in nature....a minimum of once a week.... DODO.....go to different locations...even if bottom of garden....
Take phone....film the experience.....
2. Bring your animal in to the Present Moment
It' time to share the peace of mind with your animal. (which is why we practice being present).
By now should be familiar with the feeling of "Being Present".
With the TT - what you are saying to your animal is, "right now you can be peaceful". You are saying this with a "feeling" (not words). The feeling of being present.
When helping animals with their fears or teaching new things... the only communication is right now, you can be peaceful.
It's the simplicity that makes this method so very powerful.
At the beginning, you will be creating a peaceful atmosphere. Animals will always respond to this atmosphere.
At the beginning, they may not know that it's you that is creating it. But after a few goes, they will soon click and understand that it is you who is creating this peaceful feeling. It is at this point, that you are starting to build a completely different relationship with them.
Choose their quiet time (should always be easy with the TT).
Sit or stand close to them (do not touch or stroke)...position close enough, so aware of you....
